{Podcast} Doing this will propel you into action!

I recently listened to a podcast by Biz Chix where the topic focused on the importance of remembering that no one has their shit together.

In the podcast, she shares how easy it is for all of us to think that other people have it all so together. Especially when we’re scrolling through Instagram and see everyone else’s “fabulous highlight reel”.

And it’s so easy to then think that that person has the perfect systems; that their business is all unicorns and rainbows…and that got me thinking of how we keep ourselves back from achieving success because we think we have to be, do and have everything perfect ALWAYS.

And just how much pressure that puts on us!

So in today’s episode, I share tips and strategies to help you let go of things “being perfect” before you start. Because the truth is that you’ll be waiting forever if you wait for them to be perfect.

{Podcast} How to stop hiding, and play big!

Hiding – My mom is currently visiting me from South Africa, and it’s been so lovely! We’ve been having some wonderful conversations and I’m reminded just how much I’ve changed since living in South Africa over a decade ago.

One of the changes has been my perception of self-promotion/marketing. Something every entrepreneur has to do a lot of in order to grow their business. South African culture prides itself on always being humble and condemns boastfulness. This value caused severe sabotage earlier in my entrepreneurial journey.  In the beginning, it felt so wrong to go against my culture’s values and I often had thoughts like: “What are my South African friends going to think?” And this led to me hiding in my business quite a bit. It took me a long time to overcome the “It’s not humble to promote” limiting belief.

In today’s episode of the Savvy Business Show Podcast, I share more on how I overcame this belief. I’ll also help you identify how you’re hiding in your business (as it’s different for all of us) and how to stop doing it so you can put yourself out there in a MASSIVE BOLD (And brave) way!

We’ll look at the following:
  1. What do I mean when I say you’re hiding
  2. How you know you’re hiding
  3. The ways that you may be hiding in your business
  4. What’s keeping you stuck
  5. How to get rid of this force and put yourself out there in a MASSIVE WAY

{Podcast} Why this biz advice is dangerous!

Why this biz advice is dangerous!
Follow my exact 5-step process to your success
The blueprint to six and seven figures
My plug and play system to massive big bucks

These are just a few marketing pitches that are floating around the internet. And although it’s brilliant marketing. It makes me a cringe just a tad…

In today’s episode – why these “promise you the world” blueprints, plug and plays and other seemingly “silver bullets that will instantly fix your business” may be the thing that’s breaking your business and your success.

Before we dive in though – please don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying that you should never buy a DIY/blueprint/step-by-step course. But what I’m seeing WAY too much of these days is this echo chamber where everyone looks, sound the same and a lot of entrepreneurs are doubting themselves as a result of all the advice out there. We have to be careful how we invest and use these and that’s what today’s episode’s about.

Leaning into Success: Become immune to competition

Leaning Into Success – How often do you get triggered by others’ success? It sets you off into a spiral of jealousy and self-doubt.

This can completely take you out of your business: make you feel like a failure or it can make you become reactive and feel like you have to do certain things in your business too to keep up with the Joneses.

I personally used to struggle with this one back in my pilates business – and looking back on it this behavior was a huge disrupter!?

So how do you become immune to jealousy and self-doubt?

That’s what we’ll uncover in today’s episode – Leaning Into Success.

Unsolicited Business Advice: How to handle it!

In today’s episode, I’ll break down the process on how to handle unsolicited advice!

So if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen me do a little #realtalk rant about today’s topic a couple of weeks ago. 

Before I dive deep into today’s topic on unsolicited business advice: please note that I don’t like gossip or talking badly about others’ businesses. It is the quickest way to break trust with others and I have never subscribed to the mean girls club and I would encourage you to always be mindful of what you say about other people to clients or people you don’t know etc. So the example I’m about to share is being shared as a learning experience for us all and not as a dissing fest. Is that even a word? But you know what I mean 🙂

So last week I’m minding my biz on Instagram when I receive a message from someone whom I don’t know who says they want to connect because they love meeting new people and listen how this lady completely crossed the line. Hop on over and listen to this episode of unsolicited business advice now!

{Podcast} Three Steps to Up-level Your Business!

Up-level: Remember the episode on what a year it’s been in my business as I’ve massively up-leveled? Well, evidently that’s what I’ve been helping many of my private clients to do in their businesses too.

And in today’s episode, I’ll break down the process to help you up-level in your business too! It’s been incredible to witness the expansion that happened with my private clients this year.  All of them were in crazy up-level mode, some of them went from being in freelancer mindset to full-blown business owners with brick and mortars, while others opened more locations upping their revenue to produce in one week what used to take them a month to do. And also in the mix, we worked to hire the right staff members, streamlined their own workload etc. And what I loved most was all the variety!

My clients are mostly service-based entrepreneurs with small to medium size businesses, some of them with revenues in the million mark. So they all have different obstacles and challenges.

In today’s episode, I’ll break down the process to help you up-level in your business too!

{PODCAST} Your Mindset: The real work that will determine business success!

In today’s episode let’s cover the REAL work that’s going to give you the success you want to see in your business: YOUR MINDSET.

For the longest time, I was obsessed with implementing all the strategies into my business. I did everything under the sun to get my business to grow faster. I pushed and worked so freaking hard. I literally put blood, sweat, and tears into my business…

And it felt… exhausting. I would constantly be panicked about where the next client would come from – how I would pay the bills next month. And what strategies would I have to implement next? Things on my to-do list became stuff to check off a list vs passion filled project that was exciting to tackle.

It’s right then and there that I realized that I had forgotten and neglected the most important work of all when running a business: working on your mindset!

I see a lot of entrepreneurs skip this, or think it’s woo woo. But here’s the thing – growing a business will bring all of your insecurities, doubts, etc to the surface. And in order to combat the havoc that this can cause in your life and business, you have to deeply commit to your own personal development as a person.

Two things successful people do (and you should too!)

How often do you revisit, focus, and adjust your goals? How often do you get to brainstorm your business ideas? Successful business people do this regularly (some even do it daily!). Successful people plan and set goals, and they revisit those objectives often, they readjust them and keep their eyes on the prize! This helps them to stay focused and take action consistently!

But that’s not all they do.

Successful people connect and collaborate with other savvy colleagues.

They have a community of like-minded people who they can tap for constructive feedback, ideas, resources, and more, whenever they need it. And when you have this kind of support, it helps you stay accountable and leap forward, and accomplish goals that are in alignment with you and your bigger vision.

Do you hold a regular meeting with yourself to revisit your goals? I’ve created a CEO Power Sheet for you that will help you make the small adjustments in your business that will reap the significant results. Use this power sheet in your weekly meeting with yourself to keep you focused and consistent in your action.
Do you have a community of like-minded business people? Having a group of business people to help you grow your company is super important. These are colleagues whom you can tap for advice, resources, connections, and referrals beyond your own networks. Your family and friends won’t be able to give you objective feedback, especially if they’re not entrepreneurs themselves. If you don’t have a community like this – then be sure to check out the Savvy Business Accelerator Mastermind Program, where savvy like-minded women are building immense success!

Wanna make time your friend?

Do you feel like you’re always at war with time?

Like there just never is enough of it?

No matter how hard you work, you never get it all done!?

Running a business, your family, and your life takes SO. MUCH. TIME.

Yet, there are people out there who make it all look so easy, they’re never rushed, they’re always at the gym, or getting a mani-pedi!

How in the heck are they doing it?

Here’s what other successful people who ALWAYS look rested do to get everything done:
  1. They prioritize EVERYTHING on their to-do list
  2. They know that the list will never all be done (and they are ok with it)
  3. They outsource and delegate everything that is not in their zone of genius
  4. They hire the right team to support them in their business and life

To accomplish all of the above you need to overcome the biggest mental block that everyone has about this and you need to make a commitment to yourself to follow-through to create more space and time for yourself.

And that’s where the Savvy Business Accelerator becomes invaluable. We dive deep on helping you strategize the above and we hold our fellow members accountable to work smarter and efficiently.

It’s not something that comes naturally – this is a skill that you have to get good at and your mastermind buddies will help you conquer it!

The techniques you learn will save you loads of time because you won’t continue to do it ALL yourself. And you won’t have to figure out how to do it either.

Your mastermind buddies will brainstorm and share all their wisdom with you and help you run your business like a savvy CEO!

Sounds like just what you need?

Mark your Calendar: Enrollment to the Savvy Business Accelerator mastermind opens Oct 15th, stay tuned for an EXCLUSIVE offer!

Happy Friday,

Self-care: Why it’s important for your business growth!

The first thing I see entrepreneurs throw out the door is self-care: meaning they don’t take care of themselves. They leave it as the last possible thing of the list of things to do – and so they hardly ever get to it. And I get it because how in the heck with only 24 hours in a day are you suppose to get to the gym, have enough time to sleep, etc.

But not making time for the things that rejuvenate you is actually the worst thing you can do for yourself and your business!

In today’s episode, we talk about everything self-care:

  1. How to make it a priority without feeling guilty
  2. We look at what counts as self-care, and
  3. Why it’s important for your business’ growth.

Watch the IG Story I refer to here.

The real reason you’re not as successful as you’d like to be!

Happy Monday!

Do you find yourself feeling behind in your life and business? Somehow you’re still struggling to hit that business goal you set five years ago!? And you still don’t feel like a bada$$ boss – more like an overworked workhorse.

You go to networking events, and when speaking about your business, you feel like an imposter (or just super conscious) while standing next to this super successful, and confident, savvy entrepreneur who sounds so much more accomplished and put together than you do…

On your way home, you open Instagram where you see other entrepreneurs with the most perfect feeds, achieving ALL.THE.BIG successful things you wish you could (while looking so rested), and you wonder to yourself:

How in the heck did they do that, so fast?

What am I doing wrong here?

But here’s what you are forgetting: Meeting people for five minutes and seeing their Instagram feeds only share a tiny part of the REAL story – it’s just a highlight real, the little tip of the iceberg of what’s really going on behind the scenes.

Behind the scenes:

Everyone experience setbacks, tech issues, have meltdowns, lose clients!

Everyone’s struggling to manage their time better, hire the right people, and more!

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

And there is NOTHING wrong with you!

The only thing that’s missing and keeping you from ALSO being massively successful, and rising strongly is that you haven’t yet got up close and personal with other people’s success!

That’s why I love the Savvy Business Accelerator Mastermind so freaking much! In there we pull back the curtain on the highlight real on everyone’s businesses.

And you know what happens when we do that?

Seeing others’ success and knowing the back story of how messy it was to get there inspires you to take massive action in your business too (even when you fear you may fail).

And even if you don’t fully believe that you can be, do, and have ALL THAT SUCCESS. The group will hold you in that belief – until you’re ready to believe in yourself!

And THAT my dear is the MOST empowering and motivating thing you can ever give yourself and your business! And how you achieve massive success – fast!

So, if you’re ready to surround yourself and your business with this kind of support, then I’ve got something extraordinary to share! On Oct 15th – I’ll be releasing an exclusive offer to join the Savvy Business Accelerator Mastermind – hop on over to learn more about the program now! And keep your eyes peeled as I’ll be dropping more information as we approach the date.

Podcast 004: Up-leveling in your business

Up-leveling YOUR business

Things in my business may look very rosy from the outside. But to be honest – for most of this year, I’ve been feeling way uncomfortable. You see I’ve been in an up-leveling spurt. Up-leveling in business means breaking through to the next level. And that my friends, come with a lot of growth (emotional and business growth that is) – while feeling super uncomfortable, constantly fighting the urge to just pack it in and go do something different, or hide in a little ball and stay small. But as a coach I’m committed to becoming the best version of me, to build a hugely successful business, so I can serve my clients at the highest level and help them to push to their unlimited potential too and grow their companies exponentially.

 

 

You know you’re up leveling when:
  • You’re making massive adjustments in your business
  • You’re experiencing personal and business growth (and note the business growth here is the behind the scenes business adjustments that lead to increased profits)
  • And all the while it’s feeling super out of your comfort zone awkward

And if you’re currently looking to expand your business in a sustainable and savvy way, be sure to check out private coaching with me or join us in the Savvy Business Accelerator Mastermind program.
