Eps 68: How To Earn The Income You Truly Deserve

Picture this; every day you’re doing what you love, having more time for yourself and being paid more than what you did at your 9-5.

Sounds almost too good to be true, right?

I promise you it’s not.

This week’s podcast is about how as entrepreneurs, we make the move into a space where we have the financial and time freedom we desire.

Instead of being tied up in the day to day operations of our business at the risk of losing our spark, or our passion.

I know what you’re thinking, you’ve heard it all before right?

Well, in this week’s podcast my guest, Debbie Arcangeles has survived losing her passion and her why (and ultimately her business), to left without any income at all.

So she’s been there, done that and got the badge to show for it.

Naturally she spent time reflecting on her mistakes, and reassessing what she truly valued in life.

Debbie began focussing entirely on projects that brought her joy and aligned with her values.

And then the income came. 

And it kept coming when she diversified those income streams.

Soon after, The Offbeat Life was born, Debbie’s podcast that inspires entrepreneurs and digital nomads to monetize their hobbies and diversify their income all while working from anywhere in the world.

Listen in to this episode for the exact steps you need to take, to start bringing in the revenue you truly deserve!

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How to turn your hobby into a profitable business
  • How to monetize your podcast or blog
  • How to land and negotiate brand sponsorships as a creative 
  • How to diversify your income streams

Eps 67: How to Outsource to Launch Your Online Course Successfully

How often have you reached that point of being monumentally overwhelmed as you scramble to get your online launch of your course or digital product ready?

Do you find yourself having more tasks to do, than there hours in a day, and even found yourself trying to learn a new skillset just to get your online course launched.

Firstly, I want you to know you are definitely not alone.

I actually think it’s a milestone every entrepreneur has to hit – recognising you’re not superwoman, before you truly value the ability to outsource what you simply can’t handle.

Kind of like hitting rock bottom before you can rise up again.

Tasha Booth found herself in this exact position years ago after starting a part-time Virtual Assistant business, that quickly grew into a full-time business for her.

Before long, she found herself limited by her own abilities and of course, time.

Something that we often sacrifice as entrepreneurs for the sake of an online launch or a new service offering that we go all in on.

But what if I told you this meant you no longer had to be hyper-available? What would it mean to you to have not only your time, but mental headspace and clarity back?

I’ve brought Tasha in to join me in this podcast episode to tell us exactly how we can avoid this mistake through strategic outsourcing.

For most of us the thought of outsourcing can be terrifying, because our business is our baby. Our heart and soul goes into it and the thought of entrusting a stranger to value it as much as we do can often be the biggest hurdle to overcome before we take the leap.

Yet one of the most under-valued benefits of outsourcing is the return of your ability to be creative and act intentionally through your business – and reclaim your time.

It’s what has led Tasha, Founder and CEO of the Launch Guild agency, to build a team of 18 so she could take back her freedom in both her business and in her personal life.

This allows her to not only run her agency, but be a business coach to virtual support professionals and host her podcast ‘How She Did That’.

Tasha is passionate about supporting successful coaches and course creators so they can enjoy stress-free launches while sitting gleefully in their zone of genius. So you definitely want to listen in to her wisdom!

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Tasha’s journey to getting paid to be her and monetising her expertise
  • What a launch runway is and why it’s important to consider
  • The importance of defining roles in a launch before assigning them to people
  • The biggest mistakes that Tasha sees new-to-the-launch-space entrepreneurs make
  • Best practices for remaining in your own zone of genius during the launch phase

Eps 66: How You Can Set Yourself Free and Become Unstoppable

Without even knowing it, deep inside us we all have (in one form or another) trauma. This might sound scary or even untrue for you, right?

I don’t mean though, that you necessarily have had a deeply distressing or disturbing experience in life, because for some that’s not the case.

Trauma, for each of us looks different. For myself I have always been amazed at strong, brave entrepreneurs that have overcome this huge event in their life, to go on and achieve great success in business and beyond.

But what about those of us who have had relatively ‘normal’ childhoods, that have also gone on to achieve our own success.

Often without even realising it, those that fit into this category will have at some point experienced trauma, that can be found at the root cause of our own inner critic, or the voice behind our imposter syndrome. 

For Mia Hewett it wasn’t until she was in her thirties (with a multi-million dollar business and family of her own under her belt already), when she found herself struggling under the weight of imposter syndrome, and an overwhelming sense of just not being good enough.

Naturally she invested in herself through various forms of personal development, committing thousands of dollars to the cause, with no real solution, or A-ha! moment.

It was only then she realised the solution wasn’t outside of herself, but within. She had been working on her mind, instead of healing the emotional side of herself.

If we don’t heal the emotional side of ourselves, we limit our intellect because we can’t think greater than how we feel.

Mia has helped hundred of entrepreneurs who have always known they are meant for more, but found themselves in a position not too dissimilar to her own, all those years ago, through her methodology ‘Aligned Intelligence’.

Mia shared all of her secrets in her new book ‘Meant for More’ so that entrepreneurs like us no longer have to struggle against that constant internal battle, and can be the Unstoppable Entrepreneurs that we are!

I don’t want to reveal all of the goodness in our amazing conversation, so make sure you listen into the podcast!

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why we all have trauma from our childhood that needs healing 
  • How you can set yourself free to be 100% unstoppable
  • How you can solve the fear of imposter syndrome
  • How you can no longer fear people’s judgments and failure
  • How you can eliminate the fear of success
  • What you can do to stop being a prisoner of your own mental chatter

Eps 65: My Secret Sauce to Earning 10k a Month

I believe everyone has an unfair advantage, that secret sauce to earning money simply by being them.

But the difference between earning a living, and having a thriving business comes down to three key pillars in my experience.

Focus. Action. Income

The first of these, FOCUS, as detailed in my new $10K framework, is itself, upheld up by 3 key areas:

  1. Do you have a strong why? You may know what you do, or how to do it, but do you know why you do what you?
  2. Have you got a clear vision for your business?
  3. Have you got the mindset to accelerate your business to consistent $10k months?

If you can answer yes to all three, then you already know you have what it takes, and you know where you add value to your clients’ then everything else will align and be in flow.

But if you don’t, it means there’s something still not in alignment.

And when that happens, you lose focus on what matters, you don’t know what to prioritise next and you’re dealing with putting out fires, or getting distracted by ‘all the things’ instead of your priorities.

Frankly that just gets exhausting!

You feel like you’re never in control, your revenue is all over the place, your emotions and energy are on a constant rollercoaster, and it never gets easier. 

I’ve been there, done that, more times than I can count.

And you know what I learned?

As entrepreneurs, we get stuck in the day to day ‘doing’ of the business and we can’t see how we could possibly double or even triple our income without having to work harder.

This is why, you simply have to take some time out to align your vision and actions to get the flow and consistent income you deserve!

That’s why I’m truly excited, as in a matter of mere months from solidifying my new mission to help 1,000 women earn $10K a month and contribute at least 1% a month to a charity or cause dear to their heart, it’s already coming to fruition.

I shared my vision for my $10K Club

The club I’ve designed to bring my mission to life. I shared it ever so subtly here on the podcast, in a sentence or two in an email, and in a few Instagram stories hinting at what I was developing.

I took over 2 weeks, thinking day and night about a framework that encapsulated everything I knew these women would need to earn $10K a month, and ultimately gain the confidence, skills and fundamental shifts they needed to do this.

Meanwhile, a small number of women started applying, after little to no promotion, and before I even had the landing page launched, and after a zoom call with, enrolling.

In less than a week I’ve almost reached my goal membership intake for the first month of my 10k Club!

In this episode, I share EXACTLY how this all came about, the backstory to it, how I approached it, created it and enrolled kick ass women who are my ideal members.

I also share more about my memberships are such a kick ass option in your business, especially if you want consistent recurring income, and a way to consistently add value to your clients, in a way that can scale. 

After all, I believe you already have the big vision to build a successful business you love (and can even make an impact on the world!), and I’m here to show you how to turn your time, energy and that vision into serious income.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why it’s important to align your offers with your vision or mission
  • Why memberships are a great recurring revenue stream to consider
  • How the $10K Club membership came about and why I’m so excited about it
  • How I managed to pre-sell my vision of the 10k club with zero promotion

Eps 64: How to Do Less and Earn More

Have you ever had that moment, (a ‘tipping point’) in your life where you have been provided with greater clarity and focus to achieve more in your business and in life?

Eps 63: Develop Your Mindset to Leverage Your Entrepreneurial Strengths

It goes without saying that strategy is essential in business and in life, but did you know that your mindset is the single biggest defining factor for your success as an entrepreneur?

When you’re starting out in business, it’s already tough enough just to figure it all out, but your mindset is often the tipping point as to whether your business will reach its full potential.

If you want to succeed in business, it’s up to you as the leader to accelerate your own development by working on your mindset.

If you aren’t prepared to challenge your mindset then you won’t make it.

Sure it’s exhausting knowing that since mindset is key, it requires constant work, but it is the ONE thing you have the most control over, so you need to use it to your advantage!

Your brain employs a number of subconscious processes, which have to be surfaced if you want to become the best version of yourself. 

Part of that process is about facing your fears and as an entrepreneur, overcoming that instinctive ‘fight or flight’ mode.

Enter Joe Trodden, Mindset Coach, who’s guided over 300 entrepreneurs over the last 9 years to work on overcoming the many mindset challenges we entrepreneurs face, on a daily basis. 

They come to Joe to work on the next level of their strategy growth and to develop their mindset to become effective entrepreneurial leaders, and perhaps for his great Scottish accent!

Joe’s work is about linking the neuroscience of mindset development to practical actions that are designed to challenge the blockers we face, and enabling us entrepreneurs to work through defined stages of levelling ourselves up.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How to navigate through your existing mind blocks through each stage of your entrepreneurial journey 
  • How to face your fears and overcome fight or flight mode 
  • How to uncover and discover your superpower
  • How to improve your odds by making the right decisions

Eps 62: Why You Need to Be Proactive Not Reactive In Business

Right now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, there more reason than ever to be proactive not reactive in your business.

I know it can be tempting to throw everything up in the air, and get to work creating an offer or service that you could release as quickly as possible to help people in their time of need.

Or resurrect an old course or offer that might actually land really well right now with your customers, earn you some money and make you feel like you’re doing something useful.

I get it. Oh I soooo get it. In the last two weeks I’ve felt called to show up and serve others more than ever.

In my work as a business coach who focuses on how to get paid to be you, I’ve had ALL the ideas on how I can most quickly pivot, create and release helpful courses or programs right now.

How I can reach those entrepreneurs who’s revenues have been slashed or who have lost their jobs or livelihoods overnight.

I was working on this, while pouring energy into my book crowdfunding campaign and welcoming in all the lovely students who chose the ‘Write Your Damn Book’ reward level to join me live over 60 days.

And by the start of this week I was exhausted. And I realised I need to stop, refocus and stick to my plan.

Moreover, I needed to come back to my mission to help 1,000 women entrepreneurs earn $10K per month and donate 1% to a cause of their choice.

The minute I focused back on that, I realised, they are the people who I want to serve.

By honouring my mission and my word, and turning up to support them right now, means they can turn up to support their community and so it goes on – a positive ripple effect of women helping women rise up.

Creatives, coaches, consultants and service-based businesses – this is your time to step up, stay true to your plan, and continue to help your customers in the way that you do best.

Pivot if it’s necessary, make an offer that could dramatically help or impact others in a positive way, if you need.

But stay focused on doing what you do well, with the resources you have, and the time that you have, to keep on showing up and providing.

Don’t take advantage of people who are desperate. Don’t market like crazy to people who are vulnerable.

How you show up and act right now, is how you will be remembered for a long time.

So make sure you come from a place of integrity, generosity, compassion and genuine value creation.

Reflect and ask yourself, are you being proactive or reactive?

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why you need to be proactive in business rather than reactive right now
  • What to focus on during the coronavirus pandemic to stay true to your values
  • How I’m being proactive in my business right now
  • Why I am staying true to my course and focusing on my new $10K Club membership

Either way I know you are worried about the business impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but did you know that some of the best-known companies were launched during a recession?

Susie Carder is one heck of a powerhouse. Her energy, smarts and ability to power up her profits is impressive.

Susie started out as a low paid hairdresser trying to support her 2 little girls. But working for someone else became a challenge (to say the least).

So she decided to do whatever it took to create her own business. After much blood sweat and tears (mixed with cheap mascara) she went on to create, not one, but two $10 Million companies!

Her core genius is the ability to simplify complicated issues by creating simple proven systems that are guaranteed to create dramatic growth for any company.

She has helped over 100,000 entrepreneurs increase their revenues by more than 3000% and worked with top business moguls including John Assaraf, Lisa Nichols, Steve Harvey, Doug Carter, and Paul Mitchell.

In this interview with me she totally over delivers. It was such a delight to have Susie’s energy and refreshing no BS advice to grow your business, uncover more profit and back yourself right now.

Eps 59: Five Ways to Thrive and Live In Possibility

How are you going to thrive and live in possibility during this unprecedented time?

It’s a question I’ve been asking myself since last week and it’s left me hopeful, proactive and purposeful.

I am currently at home in self-isolation for the next 14 days, and as of midnight March 25 New Zealand is now in lockdown for 30 days to contain this virus.

This global pandemic is emotionally challenging, that’s for sure. Each day brings you new feelings and thoughts, concerns and fears, mixed in with hope, solutions, positivity and opportunity.

I’ve been speaking to my clients and students and the range of feelings is so beautifully human. Yet each of them is doing what they can, with what they have, to get through this and even thrive.

One thing that none of us can deny now is this is REAL. And this is our new norm for the foreseeable future.

So in today’s podcast I wanted to share the ways you can cope with self-isolation as well as the ways to thrive by looking at all the available opportunities.

In times like this, the best thing to do is make the most out of it. How you behave, respond and act right now will set you up for how you will lead others in the future.

It’s in these most trying times that you can step up and be your best possible self, not only for you but for your loved ones, peers and strangers who need your gifts.

In this episode, I share what is happening out there in terms of potential opportunities for you and your business, what areas are thriving, and where to help people right now.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • 5 thriving areas with the most potential and opportunities for you to capitalise on
  • The two key questions to ask yourself to make the most out of this situation
  • The importance of a daily ritual and routine to feel grounded and more certain
  • Guest appearance from Azul Terronez on the power of creating conversations
  • Beautiful tips and analogies from Azul on why writing a book right now is needed
