{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #60: Business Regrets


Today on the Savvy Business Show, I’m talking about business regrets and how to get out of the funk from having them.

A couple of months ago I moved and before the move, I did a purge like most of us do and got rid of some things. 

Having regrets don’t serve you!

While I was cleaning I stumbled across all my old Pilates with Hanneke DVDs. Seeing them brought up lots of memories and it was interesting to see to watch my thoughts. 

“Man I should have done this or that.” or “If I’d only done this I would have been so much more profitable.”

I wish I could say it was just me but we all have regrets in our business. 

Yuck. 

How you can get yourself out of this funk.

Hindsight is always beautiful to have. We only have the experience we have at that moment. We have to trust that we are doing the best we can with what we have. 

Mantra: Things always work out for me

What lesson did you learn? There is no playing small you are playing where you are at. Thinking about what you want in your business not what other people in your industry. Then you are letting other people define your goals. 

Masterminds: A mix of industries and richer experience learning with others. 

Accepting and believing where you are right now. Trusting you are exactly where you need to be. Everything is happening for you at this moment.

{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #59: Balancing business and family!


Today, on the Savvy Business Show I talk with Carolyn Salinetti about balancing business and family. Carolyn is a member of the Savvy Business Masterminds.

With 2 energetic toddlers, Carolyn is aware of the challenges facing women who are balancing business and family. She acknowledges the daily struggles of both. Carolyn is a daily advocate and supporter of her community of female entrepreneurs. 

Carolyn has loved decorating/designing since she was little. In the past two years, Carolyn started a business and while pregnant she got her first client.

She says, “I made it work with a baby and then over the past few years the business has really taken off.” Caroline has a great referral network.

What have been the biggest challenges of running your business with toddlers? 

Finding time to work.

I had the clients but it was hard to have time to do the work really well. Life is unpredictable with kids and trying to be the best for my clients. Little by little I’ve added more childcare so that I can really focus on my clients on the days my kids go to daycare.

The question always is, can you add more childcare.

When you have childcare you can really be present because you can find that balance of this is where I am today. You can be fully in your business on those days and really focus on the kids the other days. 

It’s refreshing to have a balance of both work and kids. Carolyn gets to do what she loves and has less mom guilt. She says, “this allows her to be more patient with my kids knowing I have a full workday tomorrow.” Bringing more joy and allowing the space to pour into both. 

Some advice for moms balancing businss and family:

  • Start before you are ready. 
  • Don’t worry about how slowly it’s going. As long as you are taking steps forward. You will get there. 
  • Patience and flexibility. 
  • Try to find other people doing the same thing – finding a community to support you and believe in you before you believe in yourself. 

Organize your space with kids:

  • Keep your place you relax free from toys, at minimum put all the toys away every night. So you create the space to relax.
  • If you are working from home create a nook you can get away from toys or kid noise. 

You can find Caroline at Blissful Interiors or on Instagram.

{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #58: How to be Vulnerable with your employees


The fine line of vulnerability and oversharing as a business owner in a world that is obsessed with reality t.v. and being preached at to be more vulnerable.

Have you ever been so upset by something that you just immediately post about it and that left us your fans with a cliffhanger?

In a recent experience with someone, I was following for leadership and motivation out of the blue posted a photo of her crying her eyes out.

While I felt empathy for her because it was a rough time it was out of character for this person. And this person never followed up with something about how you could overcome or move forward.

It makes us feel really good when we posted like this because it gives us support and empathy from others and while you think its building trust its actually breaking their faith in your leading them. 

It leaves your followers confused when they have followed you and looked up to you for inspiration and guidance. This is something that the researcher Brene Brown warned against.

My mom always said, “there is a time and place for everything”.

Take the time to process what you are experiencing and how you are feeling. How can this help others to know they aren’t alone and you lead them out of this place.

Please note: there is nothing wrong with posting you balling but when you are doing it at the moment you aren’t taking the time to process.

A few other ways you can build trust include:

  • Bringing your authentic self to work.
  • Say you’re sorry for your mistakes and take ownership of them.
  • Let your employees help you.
