Connect with Colleen: Instagram Website Wake Up to Your Life Podcast Some key takeaways on launching a kickass podcast: Get right to the point! Don’t bury the lead on your podcast with a long-winded intro, and don’t ask your guests to “tell you about themselves.” Get right to the subject matter and immediately start sharing yours or your guest’s expertise. Pick one main podcast topic to begin with. Even if you’re multi passionate and want to talk about all the things, zero in on one target audience or one key topic and build your listenership from there. Once you have buy-in from listeners, then you can talk about whatever you want. Keep your vocals strong throughout the episode. Don’t trail off at the end of sentences or end sentences as a question when they’re not a question. Don’t try to alter the sound of your natural voice, just maintain a strong tone and volume so you sound confident! Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms. On this show, host Lauren Widrick, your sales and life coach with a penchant for dick jokes, will guide you through building your revenue-generating sales skills, finding your “I’m the G.O.A.T.” swagger, creating time and money freedom, and having SO MUCH FUN along the way.

49. How to Make Your Business Feel Like Home
Your business should feel like you’re at home. You should feel like you can be completely yourself in it, do whatever you love to do in it, and express your unique style through it. In this episode, I’m sharing how I took steps to make my business feel more like home to me, which included letting go of what a coaching business “should” be and stepping into my zone of genius. The result? I just wrapped my highest ever revenue month in June!  Want to join a community of badasses that can help you make your business feel more like home? Join our Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership today at ​​https://www.laurenwidrick.com/squad.  Resources mentioned: My LinkedIn post about how I changed my business this year Some key takeaways on making your business feel like home: Claim what it is you really want. Don’t worry about how frivolous or profitable it might sound right now, just get really clear on what lights you up and declare that shit out loud. Chances are that’s where your home sweet home is. It’s okay to want to want multiple things. If a certain title doesn’t feel like it encompasses all that you are, it doesn’t need to be your whole identity. When you introduce yourself, tell them all the things you’re good at and don’t pressure yourself to fit into a box. Are you spending time in your zone of genius? You ARE in your zone of genius if you feel energized, on fire, and at your best when you’re working on a particular type of project or executing on a particular service. If you’re not, pinpoint what that is and add more of it to your business! Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

48. My Top 29 Secrets for Sculpting a Spectacular, Swoonworthy Life
Our Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership kicked off this week and it was pure magic! Jessica Lackey led the first day of coaching with a “Finding Your Why” exercise, and I received the most spectacular download from the universe: 29 S-words that are my goals, values, and intentions for living a life that makes me swoon. Don’t we all deserve to feel all romantic and sensual about the lives we’re living? This episode is all about how I plan to achieve that, and how you can, too. Want a whole SQUAD of accountability partners for your goals? Join the Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership! As a member of our squad, you’ll get access to all my courses and trainings, weekly business and life coaching calls, and guest expert trainings with our avengers every single week! If you’re pumped to join, click here to learn more and enroll in the membership today! Just three of my 29 secrets for a swoonworthy life are: Significance: Making a huge impact in some way, shape, or form. This could be a worldwide movement you started or could mean becoming an important fixture in your community. Whatever feels really important and impactful to you. Supported: Getting help where you need it and want it. This might be having enough business revenue to outsource all the tasks you don’t like doing or aren’t good at, or hiring a personal chef, house manager, or personal trainer for yourself. Seasonal: As much as we want to, we can’t go hard 100% of the time. We also can’t be coasting along 100% of the time. Seasonality in life and business is so essential for balancing out the busy, stressful seasons with relaxing, easy ones.

47. What Stand Up Comedy Can Teach Us About Inspiration, Healing, and Chasing Your Dreams with Don Garrett + My Stand Up Routine
A couple weekends ago, I performed my very first stand up comedy routine in front of a live audience. And guess what? I totally choked and forgot my lines… and bawled in the bathroom afterwards. But also, people actually laughed at my jokes! I brought the energy and did the damn thing. In this episode, I’m chatting with my comedy coach and friend Don Garrett about the business of stand up comedy, why laughter is such a healing force, and what performing stand up can teach us about personal growth and chasing our biggest goals. As a bonus, my stand up routine is sprinkled into the episode for your listening pleasure.   Connect with Don! Instagram  Website Sign up for comedy classes at Charlotte Comedy Theater   Some key takeaways on stand up comedy and laughter: Laughter is such a healing force. When you’re laughing, the only thing you’re thinking about is whatever just made you laugh. For a minute or two we get an escape (or a “vacation” as Don calls it) from reality and the pain that comes with it.  If you’re interested in being a stand up comic, take a class! Learn the ins and outs of the craft in a small group setting so you can test out your own set in front of an audience. You can also go balls to the wall and participate in an open mic, but DO NOT wing it. Be prepared with a set. You’re gonna bomb sometimes. Even if you’ve been doing something for a while, there will be times that it doesn’t go well. Learn from those bombs and constantly look for ways to improve and you’ll be golden. There are no failures, just learning.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

46. Crafting a Global Design Business and Finding Your Business Soulmate with House of Nomad Co-Founders Kelley Lentini and Berkeley Minkhorst
Ever wondered what can happen for your business in five years? In that time, Kelley and Berkeley met for the first time and became business soulmates, started a travel-inspired design business called House of Nomad, and now have two storefronts in Charlotte and Charleston and a line of original products sold at Anthropologie. No matter what kind of business is in your heart, these women will inspire you with their trials and triumphs of the last five years in this episode. You will get all the goodness in the audio-only version, but please check out the video version to see Kelley’s gorgeous living room and the wallpaper they designed! Connect with House of Nomad! House of Nomad Design IG Shop House of Nomad IG HON Website   Some key takeaways from Kelley & Berkeley: Take calculated risks in your business. If you’re risking bankruptcy, obviously don’t put yourself in that situation (that’s what my boy Tom Bilyeu calls a “mortality experiment”). If the worst case scenario is that you won’t get clients and will need to get a “regular” job, that’s not so bad. Go for it. Running a business requires a ton of self-reflection and growth. Allow yourself to learn new things about yourself and grow alongside it. You’ll be a better leader - and person - for it. You can absolutely grow a business beyond your wildest dreams in five years (or even less). House of Nomad did it, even through a pandemic! You can absolutely do it too.

45. How to Make Time Your Bitch | Replay
This is a replay of our most popular episode to date! Does it feel like you just never have enough time to do all the things you dream about? You are not alone, but this episode is a big ol’ truth bomb about time. In short: time has made you its bitch! In this episode, I’m sharing all about how to take back your power and make time YOUR bitch. There’s a free download to accompany the episode linked below, and if this episode got you all fired up make sure you check out our Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership where Squad COO Danielle Jefferson will speak on the tactical ways to make time your bitch in your business!   Want a whole SQUAD of accountability partners for your goals?

If you’re pumped to join, click here to learn more and enroll in the membership today!   Resources mentioned: Free Make Time Your B*tch Download Listen to Episode 44: Join the Grab Life By the Goals Squad Membership!   Some key takeaways on how to manage your time like a boss: If you have a day job, set firm agreements with your boss about working hours and how priorities will be shifted if more is added to your plate. Propose a schedule that will allow you to be more productive during the work week and let them know when you will (and won’t!) be responding to emails and messages. Get some support at home. If you need more time to work on your side hustle or any of your goals, hire a babysitter to come in a few nights a week or use a meal delivery service to take care of dinners (and reduce cleanup!) for the week. Stop looking at the tasks required for your goals as a chore. If we dread a task, we’re more likely to push it off and actually get it done. How can you reframe what you need to do as “growth time,” “zen time,” or “connection time?” A positive framing will make all the difference.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

43. How Great Sleep, Whole Foods, and Biohacks Can Supercharge Your Business Growth with Tanessa Shears
As the leader of a business, your health is your most important asset, but it’s so easy to overlook it in the hustle and bustle of work. Let me tell you something sexy: there is actual ROI to taking care of your physical health. As in, you can make more money, have more time, and grow your business faster if you take care of your physical health. If that makes your tatas tingle, Tanessa Shears, a Health Consultant to Entrepreneurs, is here to share her expertise on helping busy business owners sleep, eat, and biohack their way to optimal health.   Tanessa Shears is an experienced health consultant who specializes in helping high achieving entrepreneurs completely overhaul their health so they can achieve massive breakthroughs in their personal and professional lives. She rolls up her sleeves and gets elbows deep with her clients as she guides them to work through all of it, piece by piece.     Connect with Tanessa! Tanessa’s Instagram Tessa’s Website Listen to the Becoming Limitless Podcast   Resources mentioned: Lux Light Meter App 12 Ways to Biohack Your Energy for Entrepreneurs   Some key takeaways on prioritizing your health as an entrepreneur: Sleep is crucial for mental health, work performance, exercise performance, and focus. When your body and brain are well rested, you work faster and get more done in less hours every day. If you feel like there’s “never enough time in the day,” start with sleep! Food is your next big thing to focus on. You can reduce inflammation and brain fog by balancing your blood sugars. If you can increase your intake of whole foods (meaning it either came from the ground or had a mother at one point lol), you’ll keep your energy levels up for better focus and productivity. We need to think about our health the way we think about business. We know we’re working towards long term goals, we can pivot quickly when certain strategies aren’t working, and we learn from failure. If we applied that same mindset to our health, we would be unstoppable!    Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

42. Why You Should Take Messy Action Toward Your Goals
Is perfectionism or fear of messing up keeping you from executing on your goals? We can keep ourselves stuck at the starting line when we think we need to have every step planned out before we take the first one, but there is SO much magic that happens when you start messy. In this episode, I’m sharing my best tips for taking messy action toward your goal, no matter what it is, and some stories to demonstrate how I’ve walked the walk over and over again in my six years of business.   Resources mentioned: Follow Colleen Odegaard on IG Subscribe to my YouTube Channel Listen to Episode 16: The Failure Chronicles - What I Learned from Falling On My Place   Some key takeaways on taking messy action: Perfectionism is a dream killer! We don’t need to have everything perfectly planned out in order to execute. Simply make a list of some easy to accomplish first steps to take your dream from an idea to a final product. For example, if you wanna write a book, start telling people about it and someone you know might have a contact in publishing, or get a pen and paper and start writing. Just start! Messy action will lead you to more clarity and help you understand what works and what doesn’t. Your first event won’t be perfect, but you’ll get some experience with planning and great feedback from the attendees for the next one. Your first coaching package you ever sell will not look the same as the third iteration of it, but that third iteration will be so much better after the feedback from the first and second iterations.  Messy action should not be miserable. You should be working from a place of excitement to take steps toward your goal and feel inspired to do so. Does the messy action make you feel lit up, or are you dreading it? Find an exciting step and do that first to start the momentum.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

41. My Recipe for Manifesting Your Biggest Goals
Whether you identify as “woo woo” or not, you’ve probably heard a lot of buzz around manifesting before. I’ve been manifesting some truly amazing things in my life and business, and it inspired me to share the action steps and mindset tweaks I’ve made to make all of these huge goals and dreams a reality. In this episode, I’m breaking down my 10-ingredient recipe for manifesting, designed for the energetic action-taker. Check out Nature Beyond Threads for gorgeous athleticwear that does good for the planet! As a Grab Life By the Goals listener, you can use my code LAUREN10 at checkout for 10% off your purchase! Resources mentioned: Listen to Episode 24: Everything is F*cked Listen to Episode 33: It’s Okay to Want More Out of Life Listen to Abraham Hicks - Infinite Intelligence Podcast Power Manifesting by Nick Breau The Illusion of Money by Kyle Cease Some key takeaways on my personal approach to manifesting are: Manifestation isn’t just thinking things into existence. It’s when you declare what you want and then take decisive action towards it. It’s acknowledging that there are greater forces at work in the world that we can’t see or feel, but will serve us if we pursue our biggest dreams with clarity and resolution. Sex up your goal a little bit to move the manifestation along. If your goal feels too safe, or just isn’t exciting you very much even though it’s a great goal on paper, make it sexy! Up the ante and create a higher ticket package, declare that you want to purchase a luxury car or a beachfront condo. If it makes your titties tingle, you’re on the right track! Surround yourself with people who raise your vibration. Are you surrounding yourself with people who support you and believe in what you’re reaching for? Are they action takers that inspire you? Find a core group of people that makes you feel lit up and will brainstorm how they can point you in the right direction.

40. Hiring a Team & Building Leadership Skills as an Entrepreneur with Karen Weeks
Is it your dream to build a team to support you in growing your business? There is a huge shift that happens between leading a team in a corporate role and leading a team that is ultimately representing your brand in your own company. In this episode, Karen Weeks, a Human Resources pro and Career Transformation Coach, is here to share with us all the ins and outs of the hiring process. From who you should hire first to onboarding them for success, she covers it all and drops some serious gems in this episode! Connect with Karen! Website Instagram LinkedIn Shine at Work Podcast Karen’s YouTube Channel  Some key takeaways on building a badass team are: Some things solopreneurs get wrong is hiring their besties or someone they think they can treat as a bestie or right hand person, and not having all the processes in their head documented on paper for their new hire. Blurred boundaries and unmet expectations can ensue in these scenarios, resulting in a lot of frustration for both parties. When you’re thinking about your hire, it’s so important to be strategic. Think about what skills you need this person to have, the company values you want them to embody, what this role will grow into in the future, and what the ROI of having this person in place will be. Your onboarding process for a new hire should probably be a bit slower than you might think. Build in time for them to learn your processes, software and tools, and the best communication style for the two of you. Set clear expectations of when they should have certain processes nailed down, and when they should expect to own certain tasks or projects.

Precious isn’t just a “sales trainer,” she’s the “Killer Pitch Master.” She wanted people to know exactly what she brings to the table and built a brand around that to stay at the top of her field. Think about the topics you would like to speak about. Write out your thoughts on these topics and infuse your personality, your uniqueness, and your experience into them. As Precious says “If you’re regurgitating what the gurus are saying… good luck.” What experience do you have that makes you stand out? Get yourself on LinkedIn. It’s full of the companies that are willing to hire you if you’re willing to show up and show out as yourself on the platform. When you ask someone to make a warm introduction between you and a corporate contact for speaking, prep that person on how to warmly introduce you.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

38. Step Into Your Seven-Figure Self | Actionable Ways to Hit 7 Figures with More Ease with Jessica Fearnley
Selling high ticket offers easily. Working four hours a day, four days a week. Luxurious morning walks where you can be alone in nature. These are all things that are possible for you when you step into your seven-figure self. The efficiency and surrender that needs to happen to get to this level will free up so much possibility for your business and your life. In this episode, Jessica Fearnley, an award-winning business coach, is walking us through the tangible actions of stepping into our 7-figure selves and swoon-worthy case studies to keep you motivated.   Connect with Jessica & snag these resources: Follow her on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jessica-fearnley-47173019/  Listen to Jessica’s podcast, Seven Figure Consultant Website - https://www.jessicafearnley.com/  Download Jessica’s Free “Six Elements of a Seven Figure Business” Guide   Some key takeaways on leveling up to a 7-figure business: Show as who you are, not who you think you need to be to be successful. If a lot of your business feels forced or unaligned, pay attention to where that unalignment feels the strongest and embrace the tasks and projects that feel the most energizing to you. Engineer your business based on how you feel on your most average day. So many people plan their businesses around the contingency that they will feel amazing and ultra productive every day. That’s not realistic, but planning for success on average days will help your business take off. When you’re leveling up, one of the first things to do is increase the capacity of your business. This might mean bringing on team members, or reworking your packages to increase your minimum pricing so you need fewer clients to hit your new revenue goals.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

37. Stop Being Scared and Do the Damn Thing | My 3 Step Framework for Overcoming Fear
Do you have a huge and audacious goal or dream, but you’re too scared to take action on it? I think we all do, and this year I’ve been taking messy but decisive action toward my own dream of becoming a stand up comedian. In my work with aspiring and thriving entrepreneurs, I’ve learned a thing or two about how fear keeps us from pursuing our dreams, and in this episode I’m sharing the framework for pushing through fear so you’re not leaving your dreams on the backburner. If this episode inspires you to pursue a huge goal, DM me over on Instagram and claim that goal so I can cheer you on! My 90-day business accelerator, Slay Your Side Hustle, kicks off April 4th, 2022! This program is everything you need to set up, socialize, and make SALES to make your business a reality. Visit https://laurenwidrick.com/slayyoursidehustle to learn more! Resources mentioned: The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks Some key takeaways to help break through fear and take action: Figure out where that fear is coming from. Is it the analysis paralysis that comes with entering the unknown? Is it guilt that what you want isn’t a “noble” endeavor? Do you not feel worthy of what you want? These are all so common, but there are tangible actions you can take to overcome these roadblocks. The first step to doing the damn thing is claiming it! Start by filling in these blanks: “As a [persona], I want [thing] so that [outcome].” For example “As a comedian, I want a platform to excite, educate, and entertain so that I can activate a million goals.” Put your butt cheeks out there and claim not only your new role or identity you’re taking on, but also the exact outcome you want for this endeavor. Hardcore commit to your goal. If you’re not sure where to start, reach out to someone who does, get their input, and immediately take action on what they tell you to do. Sign up for a class, tell people what you’re doing, and do the damn thing.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

36. Why Adulting is Sexy with Jessica Lackey
Have you heard the term “Adulting?” It’s doing the mundane, grown up stuff that doesn’t come naturally to you, and it couldn’t be less sexy! However, in today’s episode, Jessica Lackey - a Harvard MBA turned Feminist Strategist & Operations Coach - is sharing all the grown up systems and processes she’s helped me implement in my business and my life and the insane payoffs they’ve already had for me. If you struggle with sorting through the daily admin stuff to get to the juicy, zone of genius moves in your biz and life, this episode is for you!   Connect with Jessica: Instagram Website Radical Strategy Mighty Network   My 90-day business accelerator, Slay Your Side Hustle, kicks off April 4th, 2022!

The house in your business consists of your email inbox, your CRM, task managers, calendar, etc. If these things are cluttered to the point where you dread looking at them, you need to clean house before you enter the next phase of your business. You want to put the same intentional systems into your personal life and family routines that you do into your business. Create systems for what you’ll eat for dinner every night, how you’ll split household duties with your partner, and even how you manage your family calendar. It might sound boring, but having all these systems implemented prevents decision fatigue and dramatically reduces stress (and friction!) at home! One of the toughest parts of adulting is understanding that worthwhile change and abundance takes time. You have to strength train for months before you see your physique change, you have to spend time deep cleaning before the daily maintenance is fast and easy. Have faith that you’re implementing the right systems and routines that will pay off in the long run.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

35. How to Build an Inclusive Brand with Crystal Whiteaker
If it is on your heart to build a brand for your business that’s inclusive for people of all backgrounds, this episode is for you! Crystal Whiteaker, an Inclusive Branding Consultant and Founder of Crystal Lily Creative, is here to give actionable advice on how to make sure your messaging creates a sense of belonging for all who interact with it. She even walks me through some vulnerable exercises to connect my core values to more inclusive messaging.    Crystal Whiteaker (pronouns: she/her/hers) is a Leadership Development and DEIB* Consultant specializing in inclusive coaching and consulting for brands and leaders that care deeply about diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.  Crystal brings over 15 years of creative, relational, process driven experience across multiple industries.  She is a self-described "corporate trained, creative hippie” who puts a strong focus on core values to help people elevate their community connections and lead with clarity and confidence.

If you can tie your DEI efforts back to your personal or business core values, you will be able to foster more authentic relationships with your community members than if you were just posting “inclusive” content without any thought or true intention behind it.  Instead of focusing on creating a “safe space,” focus on creating an environment and community where people have the opportunity to be brave. Are your core values and messaging making people feel like they can show up and speak up as their truest selves around you? We are all responsible for doing our own work to overcome internalized biases. Don’t put the educational labor on your friends or colleagues of color to tell you why certain things are racist or discriminatory - look up resources and read up on your own before you approach them to have a discussion.

33. It’s Okay to Want More Out of Life - Here’s How to Spice It Up
It is OKAY to want more than vanilla in your life. Vanilla is delicious and pleasant, and lots of people love it, but if you’re more of a dark chocolate with three different sauces swirled in (AKA Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food!) kinda gal, that is so valid! In this episode, I’m sharing the areas of my life where I felt super vanilla and wanted much more spice and flavor sprinkled in, and the ups and downs of coming to terms with wanting more in these areas. If you are feeling stuck in the “good on paper” status of certain areas of your life, and you crave breaking free of the norm, this is the episode for you!   My 90-day business accelerator, Slay Your Side Hustle, kicks off April 4th, 2022! This program is everything you need to set up, socialize, and make SALES to make your business a reality.

Resources mentioned: “Untamed” by Glennon Doyle Listen to Episode 6 - The Risk & Reward of Being Authentic “Dear Girls” by Ali Wong   Some key takeaways on getting your wildest desires met: Something that keeps us stuck in vanilla is fear of judgment for being too freaky. Whether that’s judgment from your partner, your friends, or prospective clients, it can be really scary to put your desires and dreams out there. Do it anyway! The people who love you most will stick around (and maybe even join you for the wild ride!). Look for inspiration from other humans who have put their desires out there and risked it all to be authentically and unapologetically themselves. My faves are Glennon Doyle - specifically read her book, Untamed! - and Ali Wong, whose comedy special “Don Wong” on Netflix is so good. Then YOU get to be that inspiration to other people! Surround yourself with people who like the same freak flag-y stuff as you! If you’re always the odd one out of your friends group in terms of your interests, you’re going to shy away from those interests and feel more blah than ever.

In this episode, I’m putting him in the hot seat to hear his perspective on what it’s really like to be married to an entrepreneur.

Visit https://laurenwidrick.com/slayyoursidehustle to learn more!   Some key takeaways on being married to an entrepreneur: Entrepreneurship is a wild ride for all parties involved! Even if the entrepreneur is the key decision maker and feels like only they really understand the rollercoaster, their partner or spouse is right along on that ride with them. Trust is at the core of any strong relationship, but especially when one partner is entering entrepreneurship. Your partner needs to trust that you’re going to make the right decisions to make your business work, and that you’ll learn and grow from your mistakes along the way. Prioritize communicating your goals to each other and setting goals together. You and your partner are on the same team, and goal setting together really solidifies that partnership mentality that’s going to allow you both to aim higher and achieve your biggest dreams.   Grab Life By the Goals is THE podcast for passionate, badass entrepreneurs who want to change their lives by starting and growing a business on their own terms.

26. How to Move Forward When You Don’t Know What You Want
How do you crush your goals when you don’t know what they are? Seriously…what if you don’t know what’s next for you? Can you still be a badass who is moving your life forward? Yes! Believe it or not, there’s a method you can use to move forward, even if your goals are fuzzy. Even though I describe my 13+ years in corporate as soul-sucking…there’s one thing I learned that changed my life. It’s called the Agile Methodology, and it was originally created to design better software, but the principles can be applied to anything in life. The beautiful part about Agile is…you *don’t* need a perfectly designed goal or end-game. You simply need a “theme” to work toward, and design the next 1-2 week sprint. That’s it. This method allows you to chip away at your goals with your freshest energy, without the overwhelm of needing it to “all be figured out”. If you are a driven badass who is hungry to move forward, but don’t know exactly what you want – this episode is for you! Want to be surrounded by like-minded badasses?

24. Everything is F*cked
Want to hear me openly weep into a podcast microphone?! I’m getting vulnerable as f*ck to share what life really like as an entrepreneur. Yes, even successful business owners sometimes feel like nothing is working. Or, more to the point “everything is f*cked”…even me, your favorite high-vibe coach. On the heels of a stellar 2020, I made a critical business mistake in 2021 that cost me clients, time, revenue, shook my confidence and led to a low-point in my journey as an entrepreneur. Like every failure, I learned incredible lessons and built totally new magic out of the mess…and this episode will inspire you to do the same. If you’re feeling like nothing is working in your business, this episode is for you…as long as you don’t judge my wobbly, snot-filled crying voice.
