#084: The Origins & Creation of My First High Ticket Program
31 perc 85. rész

I never thought I'd have a high ticket group program, ever. For the longest time, I wasn't sure how I could expand the impact of my experience and work into something that was *worthy* of one...

...that was until I couldn't feign ignorance any longer to the dominant dialogue that was negatively affecting our online space when it came to the concept of "VISIBILITY"

That's where it started, and I wanted to share another behind-the-scene-y kind of episode where I'm dishing all the deets of how it all happened.

And what this could mean for you when you birth an idea into existence, which is a literal extension of who you are as a human.

Stay tuned as I share:

- The lens I see visibility through (and why I call in a LOT of socially conscious entrepreneurs)

- How I started to turn the idea into action

- Trying out a brand new launch style (well, to me anyway!)

- Making a conscious effort to have a sales process that felt ethical, aligned, and encouraged my applications to make INFORMED decisions

- How my ego came into play during the launch (it wasn't pretty)

And so. much. more!

#081: The E² Approach to Building & Sustaining an Aligned Team with Daniel Lamb
49 perc 82. rész

When it comes to running a team, it's not only about what they can do for you - it's also about what you can do for them.

This is far from a "how-to" approach when it comes to team building, and more so a transparent conversation about how we can humanise the process of bringing people onto your team, and why they would want to grow with you.

Join me and my special guest, Daniel Lamb, as he shares his signature E² Framework - covering the 2 most vital questions EVERY entrepreneur needs to ask themselves before they bring on a new team member.

This is how he's gone from being a struggling solopreneur to the CEO of a microagency for Copywriting & Design Strategy, Holland Creative, that is running from a place of purpose.

Here's what we're talking about:

- Why we need to throw out the notion: "It's not personal, it's business" ASAP

- The questions to ask prospective team members (which have nothing to do with their skills)

- How we can use our privilege to help POC

And SO much more!

#078: Rejection & Reconnection - A Journey Back to My Cultural Roots
23 perc 79. rész

Papa Tsang recently told me a gem of wisdom that struck me to my core: "You can't know who you are or who you're meant to be without knowing where you come from."

Hot, DANNNNNNNG! 

This was one of many signs I was receiving that maybe, just maybe, it's finally time to stop rejecting the very roots which rejected me back in my childhood. 

So, here it is my Quiet Rebels, a front-row seat to one of the most confronting journeys I've ever been on.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because as we're continuously confronted about the values we're upholding based on the words and actions we show, it's important to know where they may have originated from.

Let the journey begin!

#077: Taking 4 Months Off a Year Whilst Having a Thriving Business with Sage Polaris
58 perc 78. rész

I don't know about you, but being able to take some time off over the holidays was a huge eye-opener for me with the kind of lifestyle I would love for my business to support.

42 perc 76. rész

For many of us, 2020 has been the theoretical monkey wrench that got thrown into the cogs of our lives this year. And when that happened, it became abundantly clear to us how strong our foundations really are (or rather, aren't).

That's why in today's episode, we venture into the much-needed conversations about how to plan for an uncertain future in our business.

#074: Prioritising Peace of Mind In Your Business with Nicolle Bennett
52 perc 75. rész

Do you ever get a twinge of guilt whenever you want to take time off in your business? I know I have. Even when I've actually taken the time off instead of just thinking about it, my mind is *still* in business mode.

That's why I've brought on my guest today, Nicolle Bennett. She's the creator of the "Create Your Day Planner", a Certified Yin Yoga Instructor, and an Advisor for Social Change Organisations to help them get out of survival mode, so they can set and fulfill their meaningful goals.

#073: Stepping into the Role of a Thought Leader with Danielle Cevallos
49 perc 74. rész

Y’know those “wheels” we’re always told to not reinvent? Well, they had to be created by someone at some point, right? And that someone… was a thought leader. 

As Quiet Rebels, many (if not all) of us already share the characteristic of a thought leader, and that’s by running our lives + businesses off the paved path. Instead, it’s one we carve for ourselves as we dare to discover what else can work - even if it’s something that’s never been done before.

That's why in today’s episode, I’m joined by our special guest, Danielle Cevallos - who has worked at the front lines with 7 & 8 figure thought leaders like Jasmine Star, Kelly Roach & Amanda Tress - and in our chat we cover:

  • What is Thought Leadership?
  • The key characteristics of ideal thought leaders 
  • The different levels of thought leadership

#072: Owning & Leveraging the CEO Mindset with Maria Tan
41 perc 73. rész Mai-kee Tsang

The CEO mindset is exactly what it sounds - the beliefs, patterns and thought processes possessed by CEOs. And when starting a business, mindset is everything. Possessing the CEO mindset not only empowers you for long-term growth but also gives you the courage to face obstacles in the quest for success. When you become your own CEO, your forward movement and growth will happen with focus and ease.

 

In today’s episode, I speak with Maria Tan, the Business Coach for “Misfits”. Maria is on a mission to empower women across the globe to create successes tailored to their lifestyles. She’s been featured in several media like the Thrive Global, HuffPost, Elephant Journal, Pick the Brain and Addicted2Success. Maria shares about the mindset hack that one can use to do big things in their business, how the true abundance mindset kicks out the imposter syndrome, and why so many people haven’t embraced the CEO mindset yet. Tune in for a wakeup call to shifting from the employee to CEO mindset, today!

 

In a nutshell, we discuss:

 

- How to stay focused and the wonderful transformation that comes with the CEO mindset. 

- The limitations preventing you from being liberated and authentic.

- The level of responsibility that comes with the CEO mindset.

and so much more!

#68: Sharing Your Stories as a Personal Brand with Cheryl Lau
61 perc 69. rész

Whether you are consciously doing it or not, everyone has a personal brand these days. And more than any other social media platform, Instagram gives you an opportunity to create a buzz with almost everything! That being said, it takes a skill to stand out from the potentially hundreds (or even thousands) of accounts that your fans follow. 

To help you know how to create an authentic personal brand, I talk to Cheryl Lau, an online personal branding strategist who is on a mission is to help those from academic or professional backgrounds show up online confidently, create value-packed content, and start building their personal brand or online business.

As someone who is generally perceived as calm and reserved but decided to show up anyway to create content and share her work, Cheryl is intensely passionate about seeing people step out of their comfort zones to pursue their big, audacious goals. 

In a nutshell, we discuss:

- How one can share a story that is true to themselves and still maintain their authenticity

-When it’s okay vs when it’s not okay to share something that could emotionally trigger someone

-How one can take a seemingly mundane piece of information and turn it into either an authority or a relationship-building message.

#67: How to be Authentically Influential on Instagram with Jess Jacobsen

What's the secret to building an authentic presence, you ask. This is why I invited Jess Jacobsen to geek on all things Instagram! Jess is a Social Media Strategist who helps entrepreneurs create a kick-ass social media strategy that builds an audience of lifetime clients!

#066: Leveraging LinkedIn to Attract Organic Leads with Michal Eisikowitz
47 perc 67. rész

It's time to rethink the way we use LinkedIn. You may (or may have not) noticed that LinkedIn has, over time, developed into a useful lead generation and relationship naturing platform for business owners and marketers. While using LinkedIn for lead generation can seem like a straight forward process, one needs to invest time and share quality content. 

In this episode, I talk to Michal, the founder of MichalEisikowitz.com, a micro agency that helps SaaS + B2B brands replace yawn-inducing website copy with engaging, data-driven messaging that resonates. She is also the founder of CopyTribe, a foundational mini-university for beginning copywriters that has trained 86 copywriters to date. Michal shares her thought on how business owners can leverage linked in to generate warm leads.

In a nutshell, we discuss:

-Who LinkedIn is for and who it's not

-The kind of content that gets you the most organic reach

- The 4 H’s that must be optimized if you’re getting started on LinkedIn now: Headshot, Header, Headline and Hook

#64: How to Replace Your Monthly Retainers with VIP Days with Jordan Gill
69 perc 65. rész

As a business owner, you probably have considered integrating VIP days into your business model or even swapping the entire model altogether. It is no secret that VIP days allow you to spend dedicated time with your clients, allowing you to charge a fee that reflects the intensity and quality of work that you do.

Jordan helps overworked one-woman shows become streamlined solopreneurs. Her jam is creating a cohesive operating system for managing your tasks, files and inbox.

#062: Practicing Online Safety & Security as a Digital Entrepreneur with Shannon Miller
58 perc 63. rész

Are you an online entrepreneur that's playing safe because you don't feel safe? Could this be the reason you aren't showing up and being more visible? As a podcast guesting strategists, visibility is one of the things I emphasize on. I understand that the more visible you are, the more risk you are exposed to and this is why I invited Shannon (a Security Specialist and Private Investigator) to talk about aspects that are hardly talked about as far as online security is concerned. Shannon helps to protect your privacy, profit & peace of mind.

Cyber thieves, scammers, and stalkers might not look like Darth Vader, but the damage they can do to your life, business, and brand reputation can be costly and irreparable if left untreated.

She started out in the security industry over a decade ago, as a government contractor, diplomat, and IT analyst. It sounds boring, but when you love what you do, it’s nerd-level exciting. Shannon’s goal is to help you simplify security, to save you buckets of money in security clean up costs, and to prepare & protect you when the worst happens.

 

In this episode we talk about:

- Why your online safety and security is important

- Whether or not we should disclose friends' and family's details (and photos) online. How much is too much?

- Being aware of where you are left unguarded and the steps you can still take to sow up online comfortably

And more!

58 perc 62. rész

Do you ever doubt your capacity, feel alone and unable to take action even when you really should? Does this happen even with things you are really good at? Well, that's the imposter complex!

I know you may have been caught off-guard, but it's okay to experience this as it comes about because of your deep love for your work, your deep love for your mission, and the world you are about to change.

The interesting bit about the imposter complex is that it never wants you to rest. Neither does it want you to celebrate your achievements. So, how do you understand where it comes from and even make friends with it?

In this episode, Tanya Geisler (a certified Leadership Coach, TEDxWomen speaker, and writer who teaches high-performing leaders how to combat their Imposter Complex and lead with an impeccable impact so they can achieve their ultimate goals) and I discuss:

- The 12 lies that we believe and what their objectives actually are.

- The different ways in which imposter complex shows up in our lives

- The behavior behind which we hide to avoid feeling like imposters

#040: How to Be a Daringly Great Introverted Leader with Teresa Kwon
49 perc 40. rész

Are you an introvert and in doubt that you can lead powerfully in a loud extroverted world? I know that feeling, because I have been there.

Interestingly, a leader is not someone that’s the loudest in the room, at the front, the strongest, has the title, or ranks above you. These are just societal constructs of what leadership is. Leadership is about influence. It is the ability to influence minds and hearts towards taking action in the right direction.

So, if you have been wondering whether you could ever make it to becoming a great introverted leader, you are going to love the tips that my guest, Teresa Kwon shares today!

Teresa transitioned from being a painfully shy introvert to being an executive leader for change at organizations and boldly addressing thousands of people. She is an award-winning high-impact leadership coach and Growth strategist and Founder of Daringly Great Leadership. Her mission is to redefine leadership for a new generation by raising-up a host of transformational leaders and cultural architects who will re-shape and heal a broken world to be whole and better for the generations to follow.

In a nutshell, we discuss:

  • How to embrace your introverted strengths that may be perceived as weaknesses
  • Introverted strengths that make introverts better leaders
  • Mindset shifts that introverts can make today in order to help them leap into leadership shoes and wear them with pride

And SO much more!

#038: Making a Bigger Impact as a Small Business Owner with Matt Hall
49 perc 38. rész

Do you sometimes feel pressured to call yourself ONE thing when you tell people what you do in your business? Yeah, me too. Here's the thing, for the longest time, being a Jack of All Trades was deemed as something bad. But y'know what? It's actually a brilliant strength.

And my special guest on the show today is a perfect example - his name is Matt Hall, and by day he's a conversion copywriter at Kajabi. By night, he combines copy, visual design, and tech to deliver high converting websites at Common People Web Design with his wife.

#037: How to Network Authentically and Build Genuine Relationships with James Turner
50 perc 37. rész

“…what do I actually say!?!??!” <— does this thought ever plague your mind when you see someone you want to connect with?

You’re covered in this episode my friend!

 

I have Conversion Copywriter & Naturally Authentic Networker (the latter is his unofficial title) James E Turner - CRO Director of SNAP Copy - on the show with me today, and we’re actually going to be running through 3 different scenarios of meeting people IRL:

  • Scenario #1 - Meeting a prolific person who you know (ISH) (this is where he critiques my first time meeting Laura Belgray)
  • Scenario #2 - Meeting a prolific person who you don’t know
  • Scenario #3 - Meeting a peer, hot or cold style.   

 

So think of the person you most want to meet at a conference that you might be headed to this year, and try hypothetically applying one of the scenarios to your sitch, and see what happens!

#036: Connecting with Influencers & Creating Valuable Content with Peter Kowalke
53 perc 36. rész

Have you ever wondered how to reach the seemingly unreachable influencers in your space before? (I'm talking about the Marie Forleo's of your industry here). I certainly was curious how to do so as well, and I wanted to learn how to do this in a very genuine way so that it wouldn't be a transactional thing - instead it would be the start of a relationship.

 

As luck would have it, my special guest today - Peter Kowalke - has shared his insiders journey of connecting with influencers and sustaining the newly formed relationship in a somewhat surprising manner - through content creation!

 

What the whaaaat? "How is that relevant?" you ask?

 

Think about it, your influencer of choice became that way because they showed up consistently for their audience to make a difference, come rain or shine. So it's only natural that they'd want to connect with someone who's been in their past shoes, right? And believe it or not, consistent and quality content creation is how you can get there.

 

But for many of us solopreneurs, the ideas for the content well can become DRY veryyyyyy fast, so how can you easily handle the upkeep without dropping in quality? The answer is inside this episode my friend!

So if you want to feed 2 birds with one scone (mhmm, this version of the phrase is way friendlier to animals!) when it comes to both connecting with influencers AND consistently coming up with new content ideas to continually show up, be sure to tune into this one!

#030: Your One Word for 2020
10 perc 30. rész

I'm willing to bet that most of the people you follow online have already shared their version of how to prepare yourself for the New Year.

And instead of adding too much to your already-filled plate, I thought to keep the process simple for you by introducing what's worked for me over the last few years: "Your One Word".

Instead of having a hyper-specific goal which feels nearly impossible to meet unless you're on your game 24/7, 365 days a year-- I've always found "Your One Word" to be my guiding star.

And today, I wanted to share that with you if wanted to spruce up your routine for preparing for 2020 :)

#029: Digital Minimalism for Entrepreneurs
17 perc 29. rész

Thinking of slowing down before speeding up - but you don't know where to start?

Digital Minimalism is a concept I've learned of in the last few months, and it's coined by Cal Newport who wrote a book on the topic to help us live a focused life in a noisy world. And as entrepreneurs, it's SO easy to be a digital maximalist because we often feel like we have to be switched on 24/7 - because we can these days.

But, there's a cost to this addiction, right? And as many of us wrap up our businesses for 2019, I wanted to bring this episode to you before we're in the heart of the holiday season.

#027: Overcoming Adversity as an Ethnic Minority in Business with Eman Zabi
42 perc 27. rész

Have you ever had someone doubt you as a business owner because of how you look?

Today, I’m bringing on a special guest, Eman Zabi, who is the go-to person I think of when it comes to building resilience as an online business owner.

Why? Because she’s had to dodge the curveballs and leap over the hurdles placed in her path by people who see her colour before her brilliance.

Yep, today’s conversation is a little different than what we’ve spoken about on the podcast so far, but I believe that it was an important one for us to tune into.

 

Listen closely as Eman shares her story of how:

  • She wrote 6 sales pages for only $500 (altogether, not each!)
  • She handled project rejections after prospective clients learned about her ethnic background

#026: Pricing Your Offers Based on Value, Not Self-Worth with Lisa Mullis
54 perc 26. rész

Thinking of raising your prices in 2020, but you’re not sure how to do it or how much you should raise them by? 

Whenever it came to pricing my offers in my business, I have to be honest and say I’ve always struggled with it. Why? Because for the longest of times, I used to take the “Charge what you’re worth” advice literally.

And whenever I did follow that advice, I always found myself super burnt out for doing so much work and charging so little…

In other words, I'm a chronic undercharger. 

Can you relate to this? Because if you can, I have got you oh so covered in this episode with my special guest today - Lisa Mullis.

In this interview we’re going to dive into:

  • Why “overdelivering” can be the wrong badge of honour to wear as an entrepreneur
  • Whether you should put your prices on your website or not
  • How to detach “self worth” when you’re pricing your offers

And so much more!

#024: Knowing When to Pivot in Your Business
21 perc 24. rész

Is something in your business not lighting you up in the way it used to? Maybe, you feel compelled to "see it through" because you've built some momentum already... and yet, you can't seem to quiet that voice within you that something has to change.

 

Today's episode is like a finale of my impromptu 3 part confessional series on the podcast (for reals, this just happened! Totally not planned), where I talk about how I chose to specialise in the PRE-Launch area of launching - instead of being in the trenches of the launch itself.

 

This was a totally unplanned pivot in my business, but it came about so organically from my most recent challenges and September launch. And after pushing through the resistance to make the change, I've decided to share this with you today of how I now specialise in pre-launching for my clients, by ramping up their Value-Driven Visibility through guesting on podcasts.

#023: Behind the Scenes of My 3 Figure Launch
24 perc 23. rész

Okay, we’ve got another “Confessional” type of episode coming your way today, and this one is all about the in’s and out’s of my most recent launch.

I’m a true believer that we need to see the blooper reels a bit more in online business, not just the shiny and polished highlight reels. Which is why I thought to bite the bullet and share with you things like:

  • My email list size (shocking) - before and after
  • How many students I enrolled in my program
  • How much I earned in $$$
  • The emotional rollercoaster before, during and after the launch
  • Responses from my post-launch feedback surveys

And, the journey of how this program even came into existence by accident.

This episode is for the launchers out there who haven’t quite talked about their results because it didn’t hit the 6 figures straightaway. And, for a reality check for the people who have yet to have their first launch.

Here's to you my friend!

If the words “Cold Email” give you the heebie-jeebies like it used to do for me, you’re going to LOVE this episode with my special guest, Laura Lopuch.

Her biz grew a whoppin’ 1400% and she managed to close a $20,000 client through JUST cold email!

Which is why I knew had to get her onto the podcast to share her secrets - from researching potential clients, how to structure a pitch, how to follow up and SO much more.
