When we look back on 2020 in years to come, what thoughts and feelings will spring to mind? Perhaps how challenging it was, how isolating it felt and maybe how pivotal it was for the future of our wellness businesses.
For me its been a combination of some of the hardest times of my life alongside some of the most life-changing but one thing I know for sure is that both myself and my business will never be quite the same again.
As this episode drops on Christmas Eve 2020, I am drawn to reflect on the greatest lessons i've learnt from this rollercoaster of a year. In this episode I share some vulnerable truths, some huge business and life revelations and how I've grown my business beyond what I ever though possible in January of this year.
So however 2020 has been for you both personally and professionally, I invite you to join me in reflecting on the lessons we've learnt collectively and individually, and to enquire into how these lessons will shape our emergence into...
When you first start out in businesses it can be hard to catch a break.
You don’t yet have the follower numbers, the best-selling books, the friends with a massive audience or anything else to leverage to get more eyes on your work.
Now if you’re reading this then I already know you’re working hard towards achieving all of the above but should we really be measuring the quality and transformative nature of everyone's work purely by the numbers and accolades?
Having worked with hundreds of clients in the first few years of business I know without doubt that among them has been some of the most talented, committed, inspiring and life-altering practitioners I have ever met.
This is why on this week's podcast episode I am interviewing our Wellness Entrepreneur Collective ‘Member Of The Month’, Heather Sharples.
Heather shares her story of pivoting through many iterations in her wellness business as she goes through her own personal growth journey of...
We've all seen it - the promise of the 'simple five steps to six figures' sales tactic and I think it's safe to say that most of us are pretty unimpressed by it now. We understand that creating a profitable and sustainable business takes time, commitment and a desire to create real change in the world.
However, this doesn't mean that for many wellness entrepreneurs the allure of hitting the six figure mark isn't still an exciting and important aspiration. After all, the increased impact that comes with hitting six-figures often matches the vision and mission for change that first motivates entrepreneurs to get started.
This week's podcast guest, Dr Stephanie Burgos, shares her story of realising the six-figure dream after transitioning from being a full time ER doctor to starting a wellness business to complement her practice and how she fell hook, line and sinker into the six figure trap. We explore:
Marketing is a huge sticking point for many wellness entrepreneurs. Wondering which social media platform to master, what content to create and how to stand out from the crowd are just some of the wellness entrepreneurs greatest challenges when it comes to marketing their business.
While we may like to believe we can utilise our magical manifestation skills on their own to attract a steady stream of dream boat clients the truth is, aligned strategy and practical action is required if we truly desire to get our work out into the world.
In this week's podcast episode our guest Shika shares her story of leaving her highly successful media career to embark on a deeper mission of building a wellness business. In this episode Shika explains how she has implemented the practical application of her media career to grow a thriving and fiercely aligned audience and shares many further insights including:
As entrepreneurs we often look outside of ourselves for the strategies and formulas to success, but what if the answers and ideas we needed were actually stored within us the whole time?
For years I've been fascinated by the dream scape and how our sleep state effects our waking state and vice versa. The curiosity I have about how we fall asleep, what happens when we sleep and what we do with that knowledge once we wake up comes from the hope that we may actually be able to increase our productivity, release our areas of resistance and ultimately accelerate our personal and business growth once our conscious mind takes a break.
That's why todays guest on the podcast is dream interpreter, Angela Grillo. In this episode we look practically at how we can interpret what plays out on our internal movie screen while we sleep and how we can take action on this in our waking life. We also explore:
Have you ever wondered how to utilise the magic of manifestation for your business growth? For those of us in the wellness space manifestation, law of attraction and universal guidance is part of our regular vocabulary but are we really making the most of it?
Today's podcast guest Roxie Nafousi attributes navigating her own mental health journey, building a hugely successful wellness business and supporting hundreds of women to do the same to always implementing her tools of manifestation before anything else.
Roxie is an emotional health advisor, writer for publications such as British Vogue and Marie Claire and a manifestation expert. In this episode we explore:
CBD has taken the world by storm in the last few years with many claiming it’s the answer to supporting an array of physical, emotional and mental health concerns.
As a result, we are seeing more and more wellness practitioners using the power of CBD to support their clients and themselves - especially during these unprecedented times.
And whilst there seems to be much positive media surrounding this Cannabis derived oil, there is still some uncertainty from consumers when it comes to sourcing the right quality and potency.
So how do you go from using CBD as a personal tool for healing to deciding to formulate, create, manufacturer and launch a global CBD brand in just 8 months?
This week's podcast guest Camilla Hansson, went from becoming Miss Sweden to becoming the founder of the global CBD brand Camilla Organics after a quest to find a solution to her chronic menstrual pains led her to discover the power of CBD for women's health. In this episode we explore:
Peak productivity is what every entrepreneur strives for. In fact most invest more time and energy in mastering this aspect of their business than anything else.
Joining the 5am club, using fancy schedulers, timing daily tasks, planning social media posts and hiring a VA are just some of the ways we are told to access maximum results in minimum time.
So why then do so many entrepreneurs still feel like they're failing?
One minute you feel you've found some fierce momentum and are making massive strides in your business and the next you're staring at a blank screen and wondering who turned off your creativity tap.
But what if you were never supposed to be firing on all cylinders 24/7 and instead were actually designed to operate from an ancient, primal and nature-induced monthly rhythm of implementation and integration.
What if you could map out your month to determine exactly when you were going to be operating at peak productivity (think launches, getting super visible and...
Most of us are familiar with the famous Tony Robbins quote "if you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got" but what does this really mean when applied to your business and what's the true cost of playing things safe?
You'd be forgiven for believing that each niche within the wellness space has its own unique way of doing things. Most body workers charge a similar rate and offer similar services. Most coaches package their services in a similar way and market themselves on social media using similar messaging. And on and on.
In fact its due to all the above that many of us (including me) find social media rather uninspiring at times - but is there another way?
Myself and this weeks podcast guests, Teddi Emerald, had one huge personality trait in common - REBELLION.
Now this got me into a lot of trouble as a teenager and shamed me in my early twenties until I found the absolute perfect arena for it - *drum roll please* BUSINESS.
Embracing your inner...
As wellness entrepreneurs we are not afraid of the woo. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's often intuition, trust in life and the quest to fulfil our purpose that initially drives our entrepreneurial journey.
We have certainty been known to create a vision board for our next launch, pull an oracle card for guidance on our next steps and to journal out all our worries and concerns.
But how much can these practices truly influence the success of your business?
Are they in fact just the the wellness entrepreneurs comfort blanket?
Today's podcast guest, Chelsea Etienne (founder of Sakti Healing), doesn't think so. She believes the the sacred feminine essence from which all of these practices arise is an essential component to the growth of not only our lives but also our businesses.
In this episode we explore:
- The difference between intuition and insecurity and how to know which ones is running the show in your business
- Why personal trauma exists in so many wellness...
