Hey friends!

I'm soooooo excited to have someone I really admire on the show today: Megan Minns, a Project Manager + Systems Strategist who helps online business owners streamline their systems, simplify their tech + organize their team to get more done the lean way.

Megan creates done-for-you tools + templates that free up your focus to do the work you love most and free up your time to spend with the people you love most. 

As a business owner who has also managed other six and seven-figure businesses, Megan knows how important it is to create workflows that work for you, so you can achieve your highest priority goals in less time. 

She’s also been featured in Inc., Make It Happen, One Woman Shop, + She Did It Her Way.

SO, FIRST OF ALL, WHAT ARE GSUITE + ASANA?

  • Gsuite:
    A Google system (docs, calender, business email, etc.) where you can integrate your website + email to store files all in one place

  • Asana:

    A project management systems that keeps your tasks all in one place - a structure where you can onboard a team + have constant communication

- How to use asana
- How to manage your tasks
- Using asana for both personal and business

- Advanced tips and tricks, specific tutorials (forward emails, sync calendar, etc.)
— ASANA HQ

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE TO BE PERFECT AT RUNNING MY BUSINESS:

  • Being organized and structured doesn’t mean your creativity will be sacrificed

  • No one’s perfect. You don’t have to have all your systems documented before you hire.

  • Reoccurring tasks are going to make your life easier (asana)

  • Content creation process can be streamlined. Be consistent. Use templates. Build a routine. It will make your life easier long term. You will get more organized. (asana)

  •  

    There is no shame in postponing tasks. Don’t burn out. Listen to your body. Take a break.

  • Keep your system / tasks updated so you don’t get overwhelmed.

  • Keep your files organized + in folders. Create a holding spot if you can’t get to it right away.

  • You can sync folders on your computer when you open Google Drive. {gsuite}

060 | FAMILY CIRCLE | The Basics For Being A Successful, Happy Person

 

Hey friends!

Today I've got my family back in town for another FAMILY CIRCLE episode! This is such a fun one, friends!

p.s. Remember the Manifesting Miracles Challenge starts today! Join now!

Attract new opportunities / make your business grow.

  • Joe Dispenza

  • Paul Hegstrom

  • Raphology

Difference from before (work hard, strive, etc) to now including the holistic side of business:

  • Have you done the work? Did you exercise the change? If not, you will repeat what you have been taught. Where do you wanna go? As soon as you remove yourself from the past / from your habits, you have room to change and grow.

  • What are your negative patterns in your life? How can you change your current environment?

  • Before you head out the door in the morning, take your time (if only 15 min) to be quiet, meditate and think about what you want of this new day.

  • Survival mode will not let you create anything new because your body is so busy with putting all its energy into “surviving” … even if it’s only going to work but being stressed all day or not liking it.

What is growth mode? It’s a space to relax, let your body relax, start creating new patterns.

  • Our subconscious is playing 95% of our past tapes. We have 5% to snap out of it and reprogram our brain. Get rid of your negative beliefs. Take control of your thoughts.

Why do we feel different when we reprogram our brain? The body follows the mind.

  • Negative thoughts might have been passed down by other people. Hurt people hurt people. Don’t compare yourself.

  • Changing is hard work.

  • When people try to project negativity on you, decline or say that’s not true. Don’t accept it. Know who you are and where you are going so you don’t take on somebody else’s opinion of you. What are your universal truths?

  • Ground yourself. Go out into nature and recharge and heal.

  • Dr. Stephen Sinatra.

How can manifestation work for you?

  • Get over what society says what you should or should not be. Heal from your past. Be satisfied with your life (after you make changes). Create.

  • Find your passion. Project into your future. Be grateful. You have to know where you are going. Calm everything down. Create space. Start visualizing where you wanna be.

  • What’s your mission?

  • Don’t give up. Fight for what you want.

  • Your past (pain, relationship failures, upbringing, etc) will be used as your story. You will be able to help other people thru what you learned.

  • Acknowledge your wounds. Analyze them. Ask for forgiveness / forgive. Let it go.

  • You are never stuck to your current situation. You are never a victim to your past (unless you choose to). You can impact and change the world with your unique gifts and calling. You were born for a specific purpose.

  • Own your brain real estate.

  • Meditate before you get to bed. Don’t use your phone.

  • Go connect with nature.

058 | THE CONFIDENCE BEHIND VISIBILITY | Lauren Eliz Love

Hey friends!

Today we're talking with my friend Lauren Eliz Love where's she's actually interviewing me about the confidence that's so desperately needed behind the screen with visibility.

FEELING LIKE YOU NEED TO BE PERFECT ON LIVESTREAMS:

  • You can't be perfect on a livestream, it's impossible, something will go wrong
  • People will actually relate to you more the less perfect your lives are!

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE "JUST DO IT" STRATEGY?

  • Throwing yourself into doing a live won't resolve those fears
  • Dig into those fears to figure out what the wounds are behind the scenes that make you feel like you can't get on camera
  • Recommendation: Broken Children, Grown Up Pain
  • If you're injured before teenage years, you don't have the chemicals to understand that it's not your fault
  • It's important to dig into these wounds because they will try to keep you from being visible because it "isn't safe"
  • It's our job to do the most work we can on ourselves so that our audience can truly see who we are + how we can help

WHY YOU SHOULDN'T BE OBSESSED WITH VIEWS:

  • The most powerful person you should talk to when you go live is your old self
  • The audience you're serving is where you used to be
  • Your #1 job is to be that forward-moving train that is obsessed with being that thought leader to impact the world....that is more attractive than anything else
  • The views will come, the strategy will come
  • Your brilliance in your message is owning that connection

WHAT IF I FORGET OR FREEZE UP?

  • You absolutely will mess up, freeze up or forget
  • Put a bottom to your fear
  • Go in with a game plan, outline your live, keep it close to your livestreaming device

WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIALS OF LIVESTREAMING?

  • A dependable connection/device
  • Good lighting

 

Remember, livestreaming is just a tool to facilitate your mission on this planet.

053 | BAILEY RICHERT | Hosting Your First Online Summit

For years Bailey Richert was caught up in the 'rat race' as she followed what she was taught was the 'right path' in life. A high school valedictorian and magna cum laude engineering university graduate, Bailey took a job for many years working the 9-to-5 consulting grind in California. To most, it must have seemed like she 'had it all', but she wasn't anywhere near being fulfilled. The cubicle life would never allow her to achieve the dreams, goals and ambitions she had.

So she decided to make a change.

In 2013, Bailey left her corporate career, studied entrepreneurship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and launched her own online, location independent business with the goal of earning her own income from anywhere in the world. Today, she helps others realize that it is possible to achieve the life you truly desire if you put in the effort to create the financial means to support that life. Her business model of choice? "Infopreneurship". Through her books, blog, courses, coaching programs and events, Bailey helps individuals launch profitable online enterprises as “infopreneurs”: respected experts in their fields creating value and generating income by sharing their life experience, knowledge and passions with others in a manner that supports their ideal lifestyles.

 

What is stage 0 to hosting a mini workshop / mini summit and building my list? What is the behind the scenes prep work before you even start the workshop?

  • 12 step process (3 phases): each phase takes a month for big summits
  • Planning logistics (sit down before you take action): how many days, what are the dates, what is the theme, name of the event (don’t bring in speakers before you know what the theme is)

How would you put the fears of failure to rest? And how do you attract the right speakers?

  • A lot of people might say no, but it doesn’t mean that you or your event are not worth it (people might be busy and wouldn’t have time to be a real partner, or there might be personal things going on, or they might say no because they don’t know you yet, etc.)

  • If they say no, maybe ask if you can interview them for your podcast, start building a relationship

  • How to actually reach out to them: Never over social media (connecting is ok though, but not
    invite)
    , email them. Include personal connection to show that you genuinely care about them and their projects (“I followed your blog and this article resonated with me”, etc.).

 

As a host, you should welcome genuine feedback from the speakers you invite.

 

What Michelle has been going thru (with hosting her first summit)

  • Wanted to film in person with all entrepreneurs in one place (constantly changing dates)
    - Didn’t feel like it would work out. Melodrama. Thoughts of failure.
    - Reinvent yourself: Film in different segments when speakers have time, edit it together like a movie.

  • And that worked!
    - Be authentic to yourself
    - Go with the flow and don’t get stuck on what you think something has to look like or be done like


 

What are some good tips in terms of you staying healthy, sleeping, staying energized, etc. when
running the (virtual) summit? How do you keep it together?

  • Pre record
  • Automate absolutely everything (emails, promotions, social media)
  • Get some help / support / outsource (facebook ads manager, techy VA, customer service emails, other business owners or individual)

Wins that you, your guests or customers have experienced

  • All 3 should feel like they benefit
    - Attendees: Free training, discover new influencers, Freebies from guest speakers
    - Guest speakers: exposure, testimonials, connecting with other influencers (new business
    connections)
    , grow their list (newsletter, FB group, etc.)
    - Host: Benefit the most. Grow email list, sometimes profit (all access pass, notes), new relationships with guest speakers, new clients for coaching and courses, and things like this where you get to be on a podcast. 

How do you make YOUR summit intriguing / shiny so people think they NEED this value

  • Going back to the planning phase: Who is your target audience? Don’t invite the “wrong” speakers
  • What is your content? People don’t want to buy an all access if most of the content is not what they need
  • Up the value of your all access pass (Free interviews, premium interviews that you can only get with the pass, downloadable audio)
  • What is a software you love / recommend to use if someone is just starting out?
    - Sales funnel technology
    - Clickfunnels (all in one solution: landing page, sales funnels, online courses, virtual summit)
    - If you use something else, you might have to piecemeal some software and technology together (lead pages, samcart, etc.)

summit from scratch in 90 days, 2 page planning worksheet, guest speaker checklist)

 

052 | THE SECRET TO NOT QUITTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP | CALVIN WAYMAN

Calvin Wayman is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, and social media entrepreneur. The most inspiring thing about this man is what he’s accomplished in such a short time. In just Spring 2015, he was still working a 9-to-5 job. He ultimately decided to push himself as a new entrepreneur and he went selling door-to-door for 14 months. He recently published his first book, which debuted on the Amazon top-100 of all books in the Success category. His book is called, “Fish Out of Water: The Guide To Achieving Breakthrough and Permanently Transforming Into the New You.” Also, because of his life transformation, he was just featured on the Dave Ramsey Show--reaching 12 million listeners--sharing his story of becoming debt-free for the first time in his entire adult life. He’s been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, The Huffington Post, Social Media Examiner, and was even named one of the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under the Age of 30 (by Influencive.com.) Today, he is the CEO of the successful social media company, CobbesMedia.com - a social media management agency designed to make corporations, small businesses, and personal brands grow and stand out through the power of social media. He’s the one behind the HuffPost original, “The 4 C’s of Social Media Success!”

 

What do you do in the online space?

  • Social media management (for businesses, entrepreneur, network marketing, stand out, get sales, get leads, build connections with your tribe)

 

How did you get into that?

  • Quit my day job 2 years ago (2015). Asked myself: What am I passionate about? What’s my jam?

  • What should I do with my life?

  • I wanna have freedom. But doing what?

  • What I knew: I didn’t wanna be an employee, so I quit.

  • Was there for the first Periscope summit in NYC. Which got me into entrepreneur magazine.Periscope App was my in. Where I became known. Early pioneer. My first email opt in. Made my first dollar.

  • Facebook / Facebook live “replaced” Periscope. Loved that FB was new and that it could make an impact and a regular person could start something. The essence is social media. And that was it!

  • You can build an audience / tribe for the cost of nothing. That’s what got me excited about social media.


It’s ok to fail. You learn and grow with everything you do and learn and you will be able to use it in your entrepreneurship. “Trying” is not a curse word. Don’t sit on the sidelines and waste your time.


How to move forward? I don’t feel like I’m enough. I wouldn’t know how to share my story. How do you take authority over your story? How do you step into that space of entrepreneurship / speaking?

  • Repetition is huge

  • Practical step: Google search “Toastmasters” to practice speaking (feedback from peers in a safe environment)

  • Your whole life is content. You DO have something to say

  • Do a webinarFacebook livePeriscope

  • Don’t take classes about how to become a good speaker, find your authentic self

051 | CAROLIEN MERTENS | Hosting Your First Live Event

Carolien Mertens helps entrepreneurs and coaches create and sell out their dream live event, in-person mastermind or retreat. She is a contributor to major publications such as the Huffington Post and Thrive Global. She has organised over 100 events and welcomed more than 10000 participants. Among those participants were Heads of State, Royalty and celebrities. Her #1 priority is to give her clients the opportunity to focus and thrive on their in-person event through her signature flexible planning strategy and promotion, that ensures sold out events, smooth event flow & intense participant experience.

 

What got you into this? What do you really love about it?


  • Enrolled into event planning step by step (wasn’t planned). History major in university. Internship for an art auction house. Learned how to plan auctions, how to welcome guests, making sure everything went smooth.
  • After 2 years, started to work for a full time conference agency in Brussels. 1 year ago (2016), she decided to go freelance.
  • Now: Serving entrepreneurs and coaches all over the word. Living in Brussels.
  • Passionate about productivity (started reading productivity blogs. Book “I will teach you to be rich” by Ramit Sethi.)
  • Learned about online education world. Felt drawn to new way of doing business, learning, planning your life. Saw trend of online business and connecting with audience offline.
  • Saw the market. Dove in. Combined her personal passion with her skills.

 

What entrepreneurs have you worked with? What was the experience like to put the events together?


  • Smaller events: Cycle of group coachings. Everything has to go smooth and fit in with their day to day business planning.
  • Large corporations have different departments. Maybe in-house event planner. But entrepreneurs are smaller. The entrepreneur is the face of the event. Their clients are coming. Has to be authentic.
  • People have to have a great time, have to have the possibility to connect in person.
  • Large corporation’s employees are not as emotionally invested as an entrepreneur would be

 

What are the different steps / aspects to host a live event for approx 20-50 people?


  • Get clear on your vision (atmosphere, speakers, feeling of the event). Why do you want to host an event? What’s your reason? Have the attendees been following you? Have they worked with you?
  • Is it an event for clients? Do you want to promote a premium service? Do you want to step up as an expert in your field? Do you want to bring your community together face to face (connector)?
  • Logistics (where, when, for who)
  • How are you going to promote the event
  • Agenda of the event (content, line up of speakers)

 

Let’s say we are planning an event for 20 people to establish authority in market (visibility) and I have a vision board / feeling of what I want the event to be. What would be my next step?


  • Establish date(s)
  • Event season is early Sept to mid Nov (all conference rooms are booked)
  • Be creative on the venue
  • When are people able to travel (your attendees have to come to you). End of year or summer might not be the best dates
  • Is your preferred / dream venue available

 

What would be a good amount of prep time for an event (20 people)?


  • 3 months would be a comfortable timeline (clear on how you want the event to look, check out dates and venues, notify your audience and speaker list)
  • How do you stand out? What are some cool venue ideas that are a bit outside of the box (not a regular conference room)?
  • Air BnB
  • Cabin at the lake (isolate them from big city life. Let them experience an authentic 2 day retreat)
  • Ask your friends / existing network if they have a great summer house or a beautiful urban loft that you could use for a day

 

What is a good timeline for your first event? 3 days seem like a lot … Is 1 day enough?


  • You could even start with half a day
  • If you don’t have any help / support, even 1 full day can be a lot for you
  • You need to plan it out well
  • Ask friends to help you
  • Be clear on what the day is going to look like and you have to be comfortable with your content
  • You have to have time and space to welcome and connect with your participants (rather than
  • stressing out over logistics (catering, projector, fixing things, somebody running late, etc.))
  • You need to own your timeline
  • You need your energy to be up to deliver value to your participants
  • Don’t put pressure on yourself
  • What can you imagine doing? If 3 days seem too big, do less
  • Do a workshop (test run)

 

What are must haves (material, etc.) to keep people’s attention and make them feel welcome? 


  • Basic branding (signs/poster, worksheets) with your logo, etc.
  • Catering (free water, coffee, tea). Creates connections
  • Flowers / decoration add the personal touch
  • Objects from your home that you love to show your personality (makes the audience feel like they are in your room)

 

How do you actually get people to come to your event? How would you promote your event in an organic, heartfelt way in order to bring across your message and attract the right people?


  • Be authentic
  • Email your existing list
  • Post in your facebook group
  • Announce that something “special” is coming up to create suspense and build expectation
  • Reach out via personalized email (your guest list)
  • Offer a special bonus for everybody who brings a friend to the event (so your friends tap into their network)

 

What online program do you recommend to sell tickets?


  • Eventbrite: You can post for free. Ticket fee can be absorbed by you or your customer. You canembed the webpage / link to your website. You can send out invitations. You can share the event onsocial media. All in one service that is not too expensive.
  • Use your own CRM system
  • Samcart

 

What do you think about starting early (not after hitting 80’000 followers)? How about starting small and having photography and videography done and incorporating that into your website?


  • Absolutely! It’s a great marketing tool
  • Live testimonials for later use (easy: smartphone and selfie stick or tripod is all you need and your audience is already there, the room is beautiful and they are enthusiastic about what they just heard)
  • Livestream parts of the event in your facebook group
  • Think outside the box / reinvent yourself to optimize your image
  • Maximise your return by recording / photography / upselling

  • It's great to take those little bits of information with you throughout the day
  • I love your voice! You're so warm + friendly

 

DO YOU FEEL A MORE INTIMATE CONNECTION WITH PODCASTS?

  • It feels like a conversation
  • It's an intimate connection
  • A video is in the background, a podcast in your ear makes you more focused
  • There's a community aspect to it
"You're listening on a different level, it's like they're talking right to you." -Kelly

 

DO PODCASTS HELP YOU FEEL LESS ISOLATED?

  • Yes! It inspires you to take action

  • It can be very isolating to work from home + webinars tend to be more one-sided

  • You get a more intimate level because it's deeper + more personal

  • You're providing useful, actionable + helpful information so I have to catch new episodes!

"I gotta catch it! I gotta learn something!" - Debbie

 

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE EPISODE?

  • Family Circle {Episode 44} - I was blown away! Your parents are so insightful + imparted so much wisdom. It's no surprise that you are who you are! Everything really resonated with me. When your Dad was talking about how we become our thoughts - wow. I knew I needed to hear it. ---Kelly

If you're not listening, you've got to listen! I hadn't listened to any podcasts, but now I can't stop! What resonated with me the most is when you talked about Joe Dispenza. I just read that book + am doing the meditations, so when your Dad said that your thoughts are constantly broadcasting, that really hit home. ---Nancy

  • Devani Freeman {Episode 43} - It was the timing of it. I'm getting ready to do my first challenge, so I took lots of notes! It was such great information! Loved that episode so helpful. ---Debbie
  • Adrienne Dorison {Episode 13} - I'm a story person - and there were so many stories in that! They were all based on the concept of giving back + how that can really change who you are. When I heard it, I thought "YES, people need to hear this!". Having a bigger goal or purpose than yourself brings so much more into your life. In your story, I could literally feel that same defeat you felt. That moment taught you something which teaches all of us through your show. ---Laysa
  • Creating Your First Freebie {Episode 36} - I heard it exactly at the time that I needed to hear it! When you're ready, the teacher will come. I was totally overwhelmed, but you talked about the systems to be able to move forward. I loved when you said, "do what you need to do to move your business forward". It's something I keep listening to so I can really implement it. ---Maureen
  • Jen Casey {Episode 041} - Structuring a LIVE video brought on so much anxiety for me. It was exactly what I needed + gave me confidence. I love that you do the podcasts + showcase all of these different talents. It's so nice to see them + also watch them on video. ---Jessica

046 | EMILY ANN PETERSON | How To Get Pure Gold Out Of Podcast Interviews

 

I'm SO excited to introduce you to my friend, Emily Ann Peterson, host of the BareNaked Bravery Podcast! Emily Ann is a nomadic singer/songwriter who started her podcast wanting to dig into what truly defines bravery - whether they know it or not!

{http://emilyannpeterson.com/}

We're digging deep into what exactly makes an absolutely show-stopping interview - so that your guest LOVES being on your show {so they want to come back!} + your audience can't stop listening.

Let's dive in!

Join Podcasting Month: https://visibilityvixen.com/podcasting

 

HAVE I BEEN THROUGH TOO MUCH HARDSHIP TO TRY AGAIN?

  • We see someone who IS being brave, but they have no idea or are terrified of it. 
  • Usually, you can see your own bravery when you've broken through the hardship.
  • I consider it sacred when people share or put themselves out there with me. That is a sacred space.
  • Make the choice to keep going.
  • We are always managing expectations of the people around us. 
  • Owning up to your own insecurities can give you the courage to dig deeper in your interviews.
  • If you're putting yourself out there + exchanging money, beware the tie to your value!

 

"You can surprise yourself with your own bravery if you're not aware you've been building it over time." -Emily

 

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A MESSAGE, BUT I FEEL A BLOCK ON ACTUALLY STARTING A SHOW:

  • Ignore the stress + pressure of being 'new + noteworthy'.
  • A podcast is an audio blog.
  • The fruit is at the end of the harvest.
  • You have to be very consistent at an expected amount of time.
  • It's more important that you're consistent than your launch being 'successful'.
  • Go + launch -- it's okay to launch with just 1 episode!
  • Think of it like 100 tiny micro-launches!
  • Remember, you never know who's listening

"You have to be in it for a committed amount of time before you start seeing results." -Emily

 

HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR SHOW IMPACTFUL?

  • At the end of every interview, I ask: "Who do you think I should interview next?" - that has brought me such incredible guests!
  • RESONATE BRAVERY: An outsider thinks someone is brave + therefore is inspired to be brave in their own circumstances.
  • Set your intention that there is one person out there that is going to get hope, inspiration or motivation from your episode.
  • I love to imagine a guest in the room with me + my interviewee...having that third person present makes it more intimate for my listeners.

"I hold my content calendar with an open hand." -Emily

 

HOW DOES HAVING A PODCAST EFFECT YOUR BUSINESS?

  • If you approach the right people for your show, they will say yes!

  • An added benefit of having a podcast is the added exposure.

  • It connects you with fellow entrepreneurs + grows your audience.

  • There's an extra level of networking I didn't expect!

  • Launching a fb group for listeners blew me out of the water!

    045 | ANGIE LEE | Why You Can Blow Up + Book Any Guest On Your Show

     

    TODAY, I'M HANGING OUT WITH ANGIE LEE AGAIN BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING TOTALLY NEW --- PODCASTING! WE BOTH HAVE KICKASS PODCASTS, SO WE WANT TO SPILL OUR SECRETS WITH YOU.

    HOW DO WE KEEP IT AUTHENTIC?

    HOW DO WE BOOK INCREDIBLE GUESTS? 

    WE'LL TALK ALL ABOUT IT!

    Join Podcasting Month: https://visibilityvixen.com/podcasting

     

    BEING COOL ABOUT IT, NOT LAME:

    • Pitching yourself or trying to get guests on your show with lame copy + pasted verbage
    • "Being a podcaster means not being selfish." - Angie Lee
    • It's about who you know + networking
    • Introduce yourself through mutual connections
    • Speak their language, are they all about Fun? Stats? Education?
    • You never know whether or not someone's show is going to blow up!
    • Be different. Give a little extra time. Stick out in someone's memory!

     

    "I don't have a copy + pasted message. I take the time to write that person + write exactly what they want to hear based on what I can tell by their personality." -Angie

     

    DON'T BE LAME:

    • Don't pitch yourself if you haven't crystallized your valuable offer
    • Build your legitimate company + message so you have a ton to offer on a show
    • Come from a place of authenticity + connection
    "Podcasting is about who you know...there are rules, but there aren't rules." -Angie

     

    FOLLOW YOUR GUT:

    • Cater your show to your specific personality

    • What are your strengths? Utilize those to book your guests.

    • Providing "Edutainment" - Education + Entertainment

    • Be you on your show. Serious, silly, factual, story-based.

    • i.e. Nikki's intro: how can I be a little bit different in the creative space?

    •  

    "I'm constantly assessing - what is me? What do I really want to bring to this industry? And what's authentic for me to do every day?" -Angie

    044 | FAMILY CIRCLE | BECOMING A POWERFUL THOUGHT LEADER

     

    Today, we're bringing you another family circle episode! It's been awhile, but I was so happy to be able to hop on the show with my parents to kick of Podcasting Month!

    We wanted to bring you to the core, heart-centered truth of what it takes to become a thought leader in your industry. It doesn't happen overnight, + you can run the risk of total burnout if you don't put in the necessary self-work.

    So, buckle up, enjoy the show + I hope you feel inspired!!

     

    HOW TO START ON THE PATH:

    • Face your wounds
    • Look at your current thoughts throughout the day
    • Take control of your thoughts
    • Become more present - notice when you're drifting
    • Those distracting voices are based on memories
    • Choosing to lay down the victim + put on your 'big girl pants'
    • Deciding you can do this, that you're accountable for your healing + take daily action steps to move forward
    • Every little thing {trainings, skills, jobs, industries} will come together in your entrepreneurship

     

    "No matter where you are, those dark places are engineered to build the strength to start clearing the past junk + getting back to the original mission you were meant to change the world with" -Michelle

     

    WHAT DEFINES A LEADER:

    • You have to use your frontal lobe {creative space} to create your mission + manifest where your future is headed
    • Watch what you're broadcasting with your thoughts
    • Make sure they're not conflicting with the subconscious mind {inherently feeling like you're a failure/self-doubt}
    • To become a leader, you have to "shed the sheep"
    "Stop identifying with your weaknesses."

     

    INVEST IN YOURSELF:

    • 10-20 minutes of self-work per day
    • 10-20 minutes of self-care per day
    • Read "Broken Children, Grown Up Pain" by Paul Hegstrom
    • Read "Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself" by Joe Dispenza
    • Take Michelle's Life Reboot Course {$67} to prepare your mind/body/spirit:
    • What you project is brought back to you
    • Positive creation mode vs. negative victim cycle
    "We are what we think."

     

    YOUR BIG WHY:

    • How you will actually change our world for the better with your revenue

    • How your personality effects your personal reality
