One of the cruellest things that I get to see as part of my job is the manifestation of the product or products that I dreamed out.
And created and figured out how to do like. So many of you as a business owner, you get these ideas in your head and it is incredible to get to watch them come to fruition
and I started dreaming about one of our most popular products. The start today journal.
I start dreaming about this. A couple of years ago I had been
doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things and I gonna put them together into one daily practice, which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life, but I wrote them as if they had already happened. There's something really powerful about claiming
as if it's already done- and I wrote down every day- and it was how I set my intentions.
And then I would
on about it on social and so many people doing? What are you doing? What is that? Where do I get that journal? And I was like it's not a journal, it's just a notebook.
Writing down the same thing every single day, but what I think
interesting as business owners or creators is often times. In fact, most of the time your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was
You guys this is not a big deal, but it was an people kept asking for, and I finally just thought what, if I turn this into a product:
and I started to dream and plan, and I literally taped pictures
wall of my office, of what I dreamed that my journal would look like in the entire.
And behind it, and I wanted the covers to be really pretty, and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then, as you
complete at each journal, you'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life, and we ve heard
now, and I mean you knows,
times we messed up on the shipping and sometimes we rest up on
interior, but we failed our way to where we are today, which is the start today journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of peace.
Oh so incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on Instagram and see hashtag start today journal and see people all over the world using this practice as away.

Ah, thank you so much for wanting to hang out with us today
for anyone who has never heard of you who doesn't know what you do or who you are, will you tell slow but about about all the things
sure I am a former cereal entrepreneur turned author.
Business couch. But what's wrong,
let thy important, as I also have surviving the Mama five boys.
My boys, they are yeah, there's five of them in it and here's the thing. Folks, people always ask
the same questions in order of empty, because you appreciate the fur. Yes, where you trying for a girl like that, I was don't rabbit in ya out. The second
Did you did you actually have them all gas and where any of it
twins and the answer is no: no, we just status over and over and over, don't even worry about it. Why? How older they? How old they all the oldest
nineteen and the baby was, I guess, he's not a baby anymore, but he's always gonna be a bay because we spoil him he's an I'm, so had all five of them within ten years. Oh my gosh, this
Wow of so beyond, beyond the boys and beyond, just
buying that, frankly, what what are you up to today? What do you work on? What you do all sorts of things
I know from just being Instagram friends, but I love you too share your work with everybody else, I'm sure
I have written a couple of books, picking busy and fierce faith so fierce fade this kind,
of mind. Right now I have been doing a lot of travelling talking about it.
Helping other women grow their businesses. I've been walking along with Chris came for the past four years in helping her build, a ministry called propel women. So that's where my heart as too to help women and come
knees and individuals build their dreams that awesome, how
talk me through that process of becoming a business coach. I think there's something really compelling about that
and also its an area where a lot of women sort of
Spire, what are the traits are characteristics it you need. Do you think, in order to do that? Well,.
It's a great pleasure. I think I'm an unusual business coach, because a lot of business coaches will be trained by
knows why, without ever having experienced growing a business. What I could go on a ran about that and are all yes good. No one will go on around about that because I it's like all of these- I hate to say false prophets
You are talking about uses everywhere right now, especially in digital marketing. Like girl, your email, less sell. This way I have a billion dollar angelic, you ve, never you! You haven't actually grown or made anything and your advising me on how to grow and make something real
because you can take pretty pictures, doesn't mean you can help other women. But my back. Thank you. Thank you. Sorry, I interrupted you, but if, but Kyoto, so yeah, it's ok I'll go on that ran whether you says there I got,
for me. I think the classic
this coaching model as you have meetings with people, and then you ask them questions and they they come up with answers on their own. Not me, unlike haired girl. This is what we need to do now is what we need to do now. I'll, just literally walk the process as with people, whether it's out. No. What
Clients is a position with a bunch of different medical officers around the country to all the way down to women,
who come to me to say: hey. I have a dream to write a book help me on that process, so its super individual, it's something where
not only do you have to as a coach believe in their dream, you have to
actually like the purser yeah, because you're gonna be spending so much time with them. It's
Really, a relationship in an investment in them in their future. There's some
people that of that have wanted to
with me that have been like, I think, we're going to annoy each other, so we can get her? That's not gonna work, absolutely, no! So
over that? How long have you been hell? Have you been coaching? I think I first started,
poaching in two thousand and twelve, ok, what
a long time, what do you think is the biggest challenge in trying to come alongside someone else and assist them with their dreams?
another great question to follow. The first
no matter how many resources and tools and information, we have
they fill our minds with fear.
And our mindset will always be the thing that takes us out.
I'm, that with social media, you can buy Matt with Facebook ads and Instagram as they
instagram as they go up and tell me,
this course and you'll make a million dollars
wars and you'll make a million dollars by the end of the year, or look look at this image of my life and how perfect I am because I did X Y
and see, and so except chips
a self confident. So not only are we working towards building a dream and growing our business, we had these really hurt. Full messages. Come
Let us all the time. It's our mind, sat that's gonna, take us out of the game and was this something I
This is such a silly question. If you say yes and I'm a big are you're an android, but was this numbering that you, like you, carried that knowledge around with you forever or is this something that you ve learned over time as you ve grown into the woman that you ve become that that
but of grace with yourself that not looking outside yourself answers like how did you come to this truth?
league hard won battles over the years. So here's what's interesting. Twelve years ago I walked into a bookstore and just how
thought, I want to write a book one day and I
googled on dial up internet the took forever how'd you get about the yes and the answer was: if it
get or well. You either need to be famous infamous or
connected- and I was none of those things of nowhere
stay home Hamas in the middle of nowhere and then my next Google search was ok.
Any other ways to get a book from the answer was gonna blow
and if you have a blog, you can have a platform. Next, Google search, what's the block
from that point on, I became obsessed with love,
in all the details I can cause, I feel like with God and Google on our side. We can do anything man, and so I
always had the tactics and strategies to be able to help me
Health and help other people- that's really just been in the past four years that that just
from some out some personal battles and and things have gone through and seasons. I've had a journey through that that the depth of of how much fun
yes and how much Self Cobb
matters and how much our mindset matters has come.
Play and when you combine those
resources and just that the great business details we need with great
healthy strategies for the way? We think that's when we become really
powerful, naturally find true success. Do you feel, like you, get push back for that idea,
as I definitely I am in your camp. What started club, I am all know, mindset and folk s, and you choose joy. You choose to have a great marriage, you choose, you choose all those things, I believe that's true and I
I get a lot of flak for that on social media, because
is immediately women will come back with her off
the reasons why I can't choose to be happy why I can't reach for something better because of X Y, see
I'm just curious what your own, what your own experiences with telling people that that's your belief,
I think for me, because I have been through such
difficult situations in the past like when I see two thousand
Seven right as the recession was happening, I was blocked.
I think, as I was doing, you know what the internet told me to do so, while you're trying to build a platform, my fifth,
We had been born. He was five weeks old because of some bad real estate decisions. We ended up losing our house,
They homeless, with five children at a newborn, if you can imagine and having to move in with my family,
where's part of that- is the family moved in with lived in the mountains. They did not have internet and I had to drive to Mcdonald's play land will be able to blog like I was hustle
And because I tell these stories, I think I get a little bit of grace because when people come back at me and say here's, why can't do it like oh honey yeah until you have been until you
and broke and Haven'T- did borrow free internet at the Madonna planned item one here, yeah I've. I love that. I love that so much because I feel like that,
a we don't get a lot of that. We don't get a lot of the backdoor. We don't get a lot of the truth. We don't get it
Ashley in influence or space when it comes to women, it's very much.
Me to show you the finished product. Let me show you the race like. Let me show you me ten years into this process and you are at the very beginning and you don't feel like you can even try and the excuses or easy.
Reach for and last summer
like you or another person with a platform, stands up and has no no. No. This is what this looks like, and this is what this takes
one of the girls on our staff, went to a conference last weekend and she was saying that she
hey did that. So many of these really successful influencers were,
telling everybody in the audience
will only work with brands that you just
Absolutely love? You should never ever ever work with
body that you don't like
net, don't make it about money, just make it about the work. I think that's really
you d say when you are at the top of your field.
There's a lot of things that are really easy to tout. Like I hear people on the person growth space all the time
there's someone I really admire. I heard him on a podcast recently say like I just hate the word hustle
the word hustle, I think that's, you know best people being too hard on themselves and I might well that's
for someone who has been a New York Times best selling off there for about fifteen years. You know like getting here. I more people need to say I had to drive to Mcdonald's and yeah.
What it looks like an yeah it's hard, but I wanted that dream
hey aren't. Next, women's conference is only a few weeks away and if you have never attended before this is the events that will change your life rise is a three day: women's personal development conference, where we laugh until we pay our pans and we talked about how things are we cry and we find community and we create the road map to changing our lives or businesses or whatever it is that you're working on? If you want to find out more your curious, what it's all about, I highly recommend you go check out the instagram and see what our community says. You can hear it straight from them. It's at: let's rise, dot, co and, if you're looking for the next one, it's happening in Toronto on March this through the seventh that's Toronto March. This, through the seventh check out all the details at the Hollis cold dot com. If you have been looking for a nudge, if you have been looking for something to kick start change, I promise this is the thing totally amid here's the thing we.
Bills to pay. We have trained to build and there's no time to sit around to go, but does this really
fill my sole right now as this work yeah come on. We got out we're gonna, make sure there's food on the table. Then I
I feel like this a hundred things that we could go off on on the standard, because I just I love,
idea of being real and honest about what this looks like and how,
You navigate hard. Things tell me for mistaken, but I feel, like you have to
to lie about anxiety that some name
that you you ve written about you ve done a lot of work, tell me about them
M journey for you. Yeah
I was someone who never really thought that I struggled with fear anxiety. I would say that I was stressed. I would say that things were hard, but I didn't realize how it was holding me back about
six years ago my husband got sick. He developed just out of the blue, like he's a super Astley great shape Skeer, but he got sick. Heeded
I left Adele Onset asthma- and we didn't know what happened so mad
in someone's healthy for a month, and then
spring home and illness and all of a sudden he has pneumonia and we're just trying to get him enough oxygen. Why so
For me, my life just kind of collapse and a couple
good friends came to me at different spots to say, listen
you're dying under your fear and anxiety. Not only was was I anxious about his health, I you know I travel alot newspeak I had to cut
all of that out, because I never knew when the.
She was gonna drop when he was gonna get sick again. So it took me on this journey of studying fear, anxiety and worry at great doubts and figuring out the path
legal tools for how how to overcome it because
like I know, we're not supposed to live in fear. I know that the era
he's gonna turn out, ok and the end, those like what what
two in the morning when I wake up with this, not of anxiety, so I'm, unlike you, I'm super obsessed with practical tool
I just went on this journey to figure out like what's our battle plan, how to see how to break out of this and not get in our own way, and that so funny, because
as I do, episodes of the pipe tests that are solo episodes and I just sit down by myself in my office, and I ll talk about a topic. That's on my heart and the one that I
corded last week, not honestly, not knowing you and I are going to have. This conversation was about my own struggles with anxiety and the things that I did to get past. It
I have to do every day. I think that I won't you for the rest of my life as a being on offence instead of defence when it comes to a feeling that way, I'd love to hear what some of your
rules where I love it. First of all that you admit that it's something you have to do every day, because people look at me, go you wrote the book on fear. You are used
afraid. Yes, I am as life is scary. Yeah
tool is what I call the fierce faith mantra at. Something is just for Senate says I have it written it up on my office, I keep it on my phone and it so simple. It says, show up the
real love, others and don't quit.
And for me and we we ve all heard the phrase showing up is half the battle and it sounds try but
try it, because it's true agreed we literally just have to show up for our lives and being real goes to that sense of authenticity that you touched on before. We need to be
the teller stories where all
So unique and we have such a gift to bring to the world, but for me,
too long. I would not enter a room and our figure out what everybody wanted for me.
Now it literally turn myself inside out to try to be what they wanted.
But I had to decide yeah. I think so many women do that. I love you. I love that you're saying that cause. That's a great thing for us to all think on side into drug
good now. Growers,
How can I find better and then the other one is love others, because when I'm Strasser, when I'm nervous or afraid, I would have the tendency to know by the heads of
people that I love. Not that mean
TAT s just what we do on we're stress and then,
last one is most important for me and I just don't quit.
But I think that we all believe this lie that, if we're doing what we are supposed to do.
If we are living our dreams? It's going to be easy, we're gonna know we're gonna play
the seeds and orchards gonna pop up when sometimes
We arrive on this that the field of our dreams and has come
ambrosch, and that too is in terrible condition and we got a clear the brush. We gotta find a stupid
plough and plough before before we can throw down our seeds and when we
when we believe that if we are meant to do it, it would be easy,
then we take ourselves out of the game way too early. Have it so good at such wisdom,.
You guys will be back in a hot minute with more of this interview, but now a quick word from a sponsor.
Have you been dying for a chance to get away?
are you wanting the opportunity to get your cup filled back up? Do you want to hang out with a bunch of the cruellest women you ve ever met and drink some wine and have your butt lovingly kicked by some of the greatest female speakers on planet? Then you need to come and hang out with us at rise weekend allay April
and seventh, it is the most fine most encouraging most motivational thing. You can do with your life this year,
however, two, let's rise Dat, CO for more info and sister. I sincerely hope that I will see you there,
One of the questions I get asked the most often is about time management in particular time management for working moms, that's a whole, make a beast right: you're, trying to juggle school schedules and played aids and meetings and projects and getting in a work out and date night and and it's crazy. Luckily, I found the cosy app
these tracks, everyone schedules and events in one place, no more missed, pick ups or double bookings. Cosy, even does the job of reminding others in the family, about events and appointed cosy will send emails every morning with the day's agenda says
on device reminders and alerts. Others when a new appointment is added to the calendar best part, it's free, get cosy c, o the eye from your appstore or cosy dot com for Flash Rachel.
Hey I'll. Do me a favor. Why are listening to today's episode? Take a screen shot and put it on Instagram or your into stories and tag me. I love hearing what you think and seeing what you're up to and it helps the tribe remember
to go us into this week's episode. Thanks so much.
I am one of the most powerful things that I've learned in the last decade was the sentence you. It is impossible to feel true gratitude and anxiety simultaneously. I was at a conference allowance had that, like an just someone saying that made me
stop and question wait could could that be true for me and I think, a lot of times our journey towards healing or strength in our personal life is arming herself for them from
in reading the books and unless to the podcast watching videos and just asking that question. Could that be true for me and I started to do that: works I'll. Tell you that sir
some day. Every single morning of my life I get up, and I spend about fifteen minutes and method.
Patient and prayer on just three rate like
imagined? Three incredible blessings in your life like put yourself in that situation, feel how it felt. What are the things you smelled? What did you see what like as much clarity in detail as you can have about those blessings, and it just changes my perception of everything it come
me down it takes me back to centre. It reminds me that I'm living a life of abundance and blessing instead of scarcity in fear, and I will tell
you. That is my number one track. The second that I start to feel any anxiety pop up. For any reason, I make myself stop and do gratitude, work and then come back and start again.
Ok that is so powerful. I'm gonna steal that yeah he's do please do its ban. It honestly. I think it's the same thing, for you know you can't feel angry and gratitude. At the same time, you can't feel frustration. So it's who having gratitude is, is such a good gift for anything, and we have, in the last couple of years, had some really hard years with our adoption process and this work this learning to even in really hard difficult seasons. Force myself to reach for joy is one of the greatest lessons. I think I ever learn in my entire life. That's so good yeah, so switching gears for a second back to the idea of business, coaching and business
That's I love em super passion about the idea who should hire a business coach like who is a person? Could I have to tell you, like I've, tried it a couple of times and really
not love the results. I think its exact thing. You said where I cannot, if this isn't Saddam noxious, but I think
If I'm smarter than you are about how to run in scale
business you're not allowed to advise like
then you know like I've. I've had a biscuit cup of years ago, my you're giving me to do less, but you ve never actually done this yourself. I can't respect you and therefore we can't keep have this conversation so talk to us about what that relationship looks like who it makes the most sense for all of that goods
totally it's a great question really depends on where people are in their career. So, like I said I work with, I can only speak for me, but I work with a variety of different people from exactly
who need to learn, how to manage their team better and to measure that they can keep employees all the way down. Your women who say hey
This is my dream. I bought this expensive core standards
tell stock. Why do actually do now yeah, so
anybody who find themselves and business going. I need somebody to two not on
tell me what to do but to point out my blind spots. So, even though I am a business coach for a living, I have
business go. I love that yet because
let me think about it. Every top performer has a coach you're, so other it. Yet
nobody has it, because I
constantly have new blind spots pop up that I can't see because hello I'm
Is he being me yeah? I need somebody like. I have one for
and who we just have a friendship, but any
you think I'm about to put out there anything. You know design mice. I sent her and I go. I need you to tear this apart from me yeah, because
because you have an eye for this. The secret to six,
ass is always being open to some ongoing. Ok, here's your book
what you need to do next, we're gonna fuck this up alone, but ever here like that's how he take it to the next level. Why? I love that too, because I I have to tell you every single person that I admire and business that I am friends with.
I work. It's not even something that I'll say like always someone guiding you here, but inevitably it comes up in conversation like oh, when I was meeting with my business coach Christie Right is a good friend who I just love and admire and is one of the best business coaches ever has
this has coach. Anyone like I didn't realize that until recently was at what wait a minute
keep to it. How so I just think that that's it's something that I keep circling around. There's a there's, a conference I went to a few years ago and the line was the training never stops like. If you were an olympic athlete, if you're the best of the best that there is, you still train everyday and that's exactly what you said: it's impossible to sear on blind spot. So I did that idea. If you let's say that I think the people who are interested in having a business coach
immediately caught I'll talk to her about what's going on, but let's see that I'm listening to bear some early, my career and financially, I can't afford that is their advice that you would offer places. You could go resources that they can access where they can sort of be their own business coach or maybe they kid haven't accountability group with some friends or is there something like that that you could say hey you can afford a year
This is where you would tell them to start sure sure there here's the secret, especially in your first building your business. It is
all available online is finding it it just googling. Yeah, I literally web
my baby in the middle of the night and with a broken laptop with missing keys in the mill, and I just google to find out answers yet, and so you get to a certain level like everyone can. Can research had had a bell.
An email last how to build a website how to do all those things so
that part of it. If it is really easy to do it on a shoestring budget I have
I'm on my side, a habit of free core seeking to sign up for its ten days to a better business in it literally taxi bold step by step through market
to who you wanna target how to set up email, how to ride it. Just because
there are so many people out there who just need a knowledge has re yeah yeah. We will put that and I will put it in our shone out, so anyone can grab that link that wants to do it summons. Listening to this end, there are really excited this year to scale or grow their business. What's that
a piece of advice. We have to narrow it down. What's the one thing you would tell them, email never fails talk to me about that. Lets dig into that for a manner, because,
is our even tell you in our own work here, like man, we ve grown that less, and I think I hope that our of our tribe would agree. We do a good job of
offering you value there, but I gotta tell you. I don't know that were excellent at selling through email, so talk to talk to me about email and why that matters still today and twenty.
Before I do that I'll tell you one thing: I love your weekly newsletters them they're very personal, but it's true. You don't ever pitch anything while I feel like I'm, I'm that lets you you're gonna, be my coach for a second concern. I have this conversation, a guy I am am, I feel like. I want to be very careful with where and how I ask people to buy, which is ridiculous. I know
I'm gonna be my own coach for a second, because I
I really believe in the products that we have the book that just came out. I've never been more proud of anything. I really believe that it could help women and our conference that we do
every year I think, is the most incredible two days, the biggest gift you could give us, I believe, in these products, but I just get nervous that people can be like a stop talking.
It said to civilised me on this girl. Ok, so you come
go on social media that your last comfortable, an email so wise that I feel like I m O. I, oh my gosh, just turn it there
such him. I've done good social media. Your amongst the big group of people who are also talking about their staff but email and like to sit like you gave me
this to your inbox- and I don't want you to ever feel like I'm, taking advantage of that, though, honestly, as I'm saying ass, you had so down because I don't get a Nordmann target shows me what they ve got, get annoyed when George Joanne, again, I will say,
Georgia, like she's my friend when Joanna Gain, sends like either. Unlike what are you have so I guess I don't know why? That's a great that the great question I'm gonna: why over think it way too much.
Because literally you have. The book is amazing. I love your latest book and the conference's amazing. You have resources that will change
people's lives- if you can
about your audience. You ve gotta, give them a chance to find out more about it and here's the thing every time,
send an email. People are gonna unsubscribe, the enough there louder.
It's getting used to that and honestly it just keeps your bills down they answer. I love seared. Ok, that's great!
if you're, not if you're, not me, let's say if you're, if real aside ass, you on an empty shell, for my sister owns a bakery in a small town. How can Emma be helpful to those women who are starting or growing a small business?
what's the best way for us to stay in contact with our customer. So Facebook will want to charge us. You know a million dollars to show it to anybody. Twitter has come and gone Instagram's on the rise right now. Who knows? What's next, all of these different platforms
we we build our
brands on, can come and go. Email is the one that is consistent and stays people people like.
To get email messages, sales messages to emails because they signed up and they care about what you have to say. If you have,
small business. If it's a bakery know, maybe it's

It's the one way that we can can continually stay and contact with our customers. Is there a way that you would say if you're, just starting out for like man you're right away, I do need.
An email is how do you? How do you start one? How do you grow one, particularly for those people who may be have a solve a small social presence? More are brick and more.
Store, ok, Google. We can email us despite what the big internet marketers will tell you it's a long hard slog and that's okay. It's it's not going to be a thousand people by the end of the week. The key is to
Find one problem that your target customer has: he have to know hears who I serve and here's the problem that this,
person has and there
developed some sort of free gift. That's gonna solve that one specific problem, then the key is to us,
Listen! Facebook, advertising and draw
People to this project and
them sign up so it doesn't have to be expensive, but it has to be
intentional, you solve one problem for one type of
person- and you start building the email list that way, because just
random lay developing a free gift or a download me. We all have a million downloads on our computers that we ve ever looked at you. But if it's something that solves the problem, that's where you can get them
fraction yeah, that's great good, good job,
I like it. I like we were like having coffee together against girl who didn't ya. Thank you, for that is the only cause of such a
and I'm super awkward additive that comes across. But that is just the dang truth
that kind of thing that may be the best thing I've ever had happened on abiding. Do go speak it enough that last night and it was this- is where, as I know, you speak so you know
like incredible when you get to speak to her of people who know you who hang out with,
online and it would. You hang out with you when you go to speak to a group of people who have no idea who you are, and, in my case, don't get me
humor all or understand how long I am. It is the most
in four, like oh and I'm in my head, I'm like ice, where there are people who find me funny, not you guys apparently, but normally normally,
I just kill so
While I should say I know, I'm just going to assume that as someone who is focused
I know as well, I should say I know I'm just going to assume that as someone who is focused on person, growth and growth and others that resources so Podcast Youtube videos, books have played
beg par in your life. Is that true? Or did I just
Gump backstory, that you took a great and what
somehow URI biggest like worded the books, wonder that one of the things you like have had the most impact on you.
Well, tell you the first thing I did when after we lost everything I had the broken laptop in forty two dollars. If I bought Typepad for dummies, I don't even know if Typepad is still a blogging platform, but the first thing I did was like. I need a book,
book that I love that I recommend to everyone to start with this day: brands these entre leadership, ass, jazz it and how good and honestly I made Dave my husband. I made him listen to and audio cause he's, not a big, a big reader, its
so incredible you guys. I fully agree with that. You need to go into it immediately.
Or real good, and I will read anything from TIM Ferris so for our work- was amazing Ryan how, if you're a writer or aspire to be a writer or develop
products Ryan, Holidays book that he put out, I think last year, perennial stellar is a man,
using a mean because here's the thing I read so many books and I'm a little jaded when I get a book that, unlike what
underlining everything apparent ages. Ryan Holidays is really fantastic. That's a good reform and write that down. Did you by chance Reed high performance habits,
I did not ask you that the way you talked about it, that was my book last year that I just I still like ask a question because it's exactly what you said I read so
any books and oftentimes,
You like yeah, I get it, you have one
that you're now gonna just say for twenty five chapters, but we get it or this is not enough.
I haven't heard of war. That was just such excellent
excellent information, I cannot recommend are highly enough goodbye
We want to go right it because I appreciate from you do that
who told everybody on your instagram story that was on sale on Kendall. Yet I bought it that day of an island and read it all girl. You have only the router and then put em. You know, and let me know you think, as I just think I well Van half Dick, are you a conference person? He go to personal growth or business conferences and, if so, which ones
ass. I don't go to business conferences any more because it tends to just be a pitch fast. You know everyone pitching their products and as a mad and yeah- and I will
I don't want to waste my time at a business conference. If I can google that information yeah, a guy can do that at home, so any
thing that is self develop
That will teach me how to think that all help me clear out my blind spots in its it's funny that acid
ass it? But there's this conference called catalyst conference, oh yeah, and yet I went to accidentally the first
I'm in two thousand and eleven, because because
different speakers, were they arrogant, Malcolm Gladwell was their Jim causes was there I had no idea it was. I was actually a ministry competent yeah, but I've been
love with it and have it, MR, a single yourselves, that's good! We're right! I'll get talk, love! I used to run a conference that was my first business and when I was at kettles impress, I saw Jim Collins Beak and just was policy.
If I can say that on your pie, cast a reach out to hand
try to get em at my comrades. He couldn't make it, but he let me come out to his office in boulder and we got a couple hours together. Just picking AIDS he's a really nice nominal back in June
Will I conjure because we're bodies now Yoda Maria, but he let me come out to his office in boulder because he believes so much in my mouth
and of training women entrepreneurs, that's so a port is he's, spends all his time, of course, with
business people and teaching at Stanford and West. Why but it, but his his focus was its.
Important to train women to run their own businesses at some point in the future, as is there
you ever gone to a twenty robins conference.
No, but I was jealous following your story sister and I honestly I feel like at some point that companies just gonna start giving me like
five dollars for everyone and their way I am, he has been to several very obviously. I love him so much, and I always tell people if you know that is like if you Norman, real life and he's a terrible person, don't don't ever tell makes it will
destroyed now, but he has a conference called you P, W, which is unleashed the power within. I know that sounds cheesy and there are definite parts of it that our cheesy, but it is. I have never been to anything like it that is as high as big a catalyst for change in ass, like a four day therapy session. It's all about yourself, your own, all the things it changed
my life- and I think my life is already really good. It changed my marriage and I think my marriage was already really good and I am honestly doing a like. I feel like a little bit of a crazy person right now. Cuz, I'm like hey man. I want
you p W ticket and just go for like the first day, even though I then
Why are we just want to go into the first day, get myself all fired up and
head back out into the year because I just don't know anybody who, ah I love it. So if you ever consider, if it ever comes nearer your place, you ve got to I
he ain't recommended enough. Ok, it's on my less yeah. It's gonna happen. Please honestly tell people like if you, if you have to choose between coming to my event,
went to his men. I really want you to come to rise by I'd. I would rather, that you go there, because I just think it'll change your life
If you change your life than you will help other people around you to do the same, and that's why we're in this work. So sorry,
but I just went off on a weird tony robins, tangent, all right, we'll get back to interview questions of so on. Every single!
episode of day. As I asked the same five questions, there are just the weird things that I wonder about other women. I would like to ask them to you where you what time
do you wake up in the morning and what is your morning routine? I
to wake up at five. Normally I wake up at six, ok, depending on which child needs me yes morning routine. Is I wake up and get all the kids ready? My husband takes them to school at seven thirty and then
I have why, at time from
seven, thirty, two nine! So that's reading its journaling, its prayer
attention and it's just getting myself centred for the day, because there some
creative work, I need to do during the day I dont guard.
Time, I'm done I've awesome
And also really similar to my own star, I think, honestly, if you can, I hate to sound like a pinterest
add, but if you can conquer your morning, if you can start your morning with
intentionally and focus. It changes the entire day which changes the weak and everything that comes after it. So Oliver,
Thirdly, I actually worked really hard to try to plan, and this is a luxury. So everyone listening, please don't tell your eyes at me through. Second, it took me ten years to get here, but
I know that I can focus in the morning, but I have terrible focus in the afternoon. So if I need a figure something out require- or I need to be creative it's in the morning, so I will not even have meetings in the morning or calls if I can have it. I think all night
Calls for the afternoon when I know like I can do tasks I can talk, but if you need
and brilliance from me. Undone yeah. I love and I love it. You know yourself and your paying attention to when you have the highest output,
play friends who are night owls die of that is not my spiritual gifting. I cannot do that for you. I need to be asleep by nine hundred and fifteen p dot m. So it's a great piece of advice for women listening,
you pay attention to when you are at your bass and then here's a crazy idea,
the things that matter most. When you are at your best speed,
being at your best, what is your car?
the order Fever Starbucks. What are you gonna have ok, this is this
kind of a sad point for me. For maybe fifteen years I drank four or five cups of coffee, a dagger and
last year. I had to give it up so now I've moved to tee
I am that Grannie that always carries like specialty tee and her purse now. So I'm always going to Starbucks for for plain hot water that I now I never
it would be made. But if it's my secret shame are a fact that I would be glad to see him. I think that there really planning personally, I know you have to travel time. What is your, what does your like? A central travel item that you don't ever
wanna, be without. I need a portable charger cause. I have low key phone battery issues yap, so
it's about that, if my ipod goes out or I'm stuck on a runway,
somewhere that I can charge my focus Lord help me. If I don't have my phone poorly charge- and I also have a personal snacks- normally have lower bars and my first come of evil people are always Irving. Danish is for a quick breakfast. I don't want that yards off everything, yap battery and snacks. That's good one! I think. That's all you need for life. What is your favorite work out and half
Do you do it, I'm really bad at exercise. That's the one! I research! All of these things about life. You know to make life better and optimize life and exercises right up there with everything, but I dont do it a barely to the seven minute app, maybe three times a week. Homework on a work in progress does good, so this pod gases called Deus DAS is the idea of a platform and when you are given a platform- and you have the opportunity to speak, I like to ask if you could tell women listening to this one thing that you believe to be true: that they would take into themselves and also tree as truth and live their lives into this piece of advice. What would
say no pressure. I know nothing of it, but the big question at all, but nobody knows what they're doing that that it's all set
Mary and risky, and if your waiting to take the next step until you feel confident,
Or until you feel like, I have enough resources or wisdom, you're gonna be the false prophets of your own doom cause you're, never gonna go anywhere. Just get go.
No matter what stage you are for the next step. If you have
that dream inside of you. You need to honour it and go for it. I love that. I thank you so much. Thank you so much for your wisdom and taking the time today and talking about all the things, not just the fun and pretty things, but the hard truths about what life looks like behind the scenes and how hard we have to work and hustle.
They get where we're trying to go. I think it's incredible that you are devoting
Your life and your energy to helping other women to grow and skill their businesses, and that you did this with us for the last forty minutes of of chatting. I know that so many women are going to benefit from a knowledge, so thanks
MR superbly faintly friend, it's great to be here with you, and I could say the same thing to you. I think you are amazing in an inspiration. I appreciate that, and now I'm gonna go talk to my email person about
putting makes Europe at the back of the evil. We gotta give an opportunity alley, told me it's true,
our I ever fantastic, weak and I'll talk to consume.
