#62: Setting Up My Schedule According to my Cycle show art #62: Setting Up My Schedule According to my Cycle

Take It Personally

For so long I beat myself up in my business because there were weeks where I would be accomplishing everything on my list and completing all the things that needed to get done, and then there were other weeks I didn’t want to get out of bed, was struggling to focus, and just wasn’t in the same headspace. Once I learned about cycle synching, more about my own menstrual cycle, and about hormones in general, things started to click. Our hormones and where we are at in our cycle really can impact our energy levels, mood, and productivity, which is what I was seeing within my own business. I...

#59: Dealing with Rejection as a Personal Brand show art #59: Dealing with Rejection as a Personal Brand

Take It Personally

Rejection is a part of business, but it’s never easy when it happens. There’s an extra sting to it when it happens in a personal brand because it’s personal. We are selling the experience to work with us, our personality, what we bring to the table, spending time with us, etc. That’s why I wanted to talk about rejection and how to deal with it when building a personal brand. Rejection is inevitably going to happen, and I want to allow space for this conversation and those feelings. Here are the main points I discussed in this episode: It could be price, but it could be other things...

#58: Outsourcing in Your Personal Life show art #58: Outsourcing in Your Personal Life

Take It Personally

I recently did a poll on Instagram, and 83% of the people that responded to this poll (out of approx. 150 people) said that they wanted to outsource tasks in their personal life. And the number one thing preventing them from doing that was because they felt guilty. The problem wasn’t money or options, it was the shame and guilt and the stigma about bringing on help at home. So instead of doing that, they are left burning the candle at both ends. I think this is a big problem we need to talk about! Here are the main things I covered in this episode: What outsourcing looked like for me...

#56: When to Raise Your Prices show art #56: When to Raise Your Prices

Take It Personally

Pricing is challenging, it’s emotional, and it feels personal. And as women, we already deal with so much more imposter syndrome and inferiority complex - it is all more rampant among women than men. And I think a lot of that is because with men, if they do have some kind of imposter syndrome, it is a bit easier for them to look around themselves and see other men in positions of power or another man doing what they want to do. It is harder for women, for people of color, for minorities to be able to see the type of person that we want to be, in the role that we want to be, reflected back at...

I’m so excited today to be joined by Samantha Ste Marie. Samantha is a productivity strategist and specifically works with service providers to help them find clients with ease and create their perfect work schedule. We all know that the perfect work schedule for someone else may not be the perfect work schedule for us. And in this culture of online business and so much hustle and grind, I think a lot of us are coming up for air, realizing that we don’t actually have as high of capacity as we thought we did.  And instead of trying to push past that, Samantha really challenges it by...

I have been approaching sales a bit differently in my business for the past year and a half. I used to rely really heavily on social media for sales and overall recognition. I still love social media, but I have been relying more on email marketing! I have been pleasantly surprised at the results that I’ve had and the increase in sales I’ve made by focusing on email marketing, both for products and in-person services. One of the changes that I’ve implemented more recently that has been a game changer in my launch is what I want to share with you today. I gave waitlist launching a go with...
