{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #33: Stress less: How to get into meditation (consistently)

Today on the Savvy Business Show I talk with Sara Intonato of Sara Yogo about how to get into meditation and how it can benefit you and your business.

Part of being a high achiever is having a full life. Often this comes with putting everyone and everything else ahead of yourself. But what is the cost of doing this?

Sacrificing your health? Stress management? Relationships?

You know there is a better way, but you can’t find it on your own.

Listen Now:

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • How you can get started with meditation in 5 min
  • How meditation principle can relate to your business
  • Sara’s upcoming one day retreat – you can learn more and sign up here.

About Sara:

 

Sara Intonato (Level 2 Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher) committed to a daily yoga practice in 2001 as a means of coping with debilitating anxiety attacks. Just 20 years old, yoga provided Sara with the tools to manage her anxiety attacks and a renewed sense of clarity in her life. By the time Sara graduated from Boston University in 2003, she had already completed her 200 hour teacher training and begun focusing her studies in the Ashtanga Yoga method. Instead of working on Wall Street or applying to law school, the recent college graduate embarked on the journey of entrepreneurship and began freelance work as a yoga teacher.

An online community with business owners focused on joy, ease, and profits!

An online community with business owners focused on joy, ease, and profits!

Are you looking to join an online community who will help you work with ease, and get more joy out of your business while increasing profits?

I see so much of the opposite out there right now.

I see a lot of people talking about REVENUE and doing all the things that will increase their revenue.

And then I see a lot of people enrolling into online communities who are using fear-based marketing and other manipulation techniques promising to deliver and help them scale to millions of dollars over night. Targeting the lowest common denominator and attracting a lot of scarcity mindset folks.

The result of joining an online community that focus on the wrong business parameters!

Which results in communities that are focusing on doing all.the.things they think will create overnight success, like “the perfect funnel” or the step-by-step system or blueprint…

Here’s what these folks are missing (and it’s going to result in their business imploding and them burning out.)

They’re NOT focusing on sustainability, impact, values, and the back office systems that will support massive growth of their business. 

An online community and programs like this are also not focusing on their PROFITS.

Skipping the above means they’ll most likely create businesses with a low profit margin, where they over work and burn out, their support staff (if they have time to hire and train them properly) won’t last or won’t function optimally.

Who you put yourself in community with is super important. Here’s why: Because you are the average of the five people that you spend most of your time with. 

In the Savvy Business Masterminds our soul focus is to help you set up your business in a way that supports you! 

Over in our Savvy Business Mastermind Community the following matters: 

That you are working less, and earning more with a whole lot of joy!  It matters that your business is set up to support you and your lifestyle. PROFIT matters WAY more than revenue. 

In our community, your business is not your baby, over in the savvy community your business is the vehicle that gives you the freedom to do what you want when you want to do it! 

In our online community (who also meets in-person regularly) you’ll receive the real deal mindset strategies with zero fluff! Everything we do in the masterminds (and in my private coaching sessions) are geared to help you work with intention and ease, and transform your leadership skills. 

We’re obsessed with helping you become a savvy business owner and CEO​ that can lead your team and clients, and disrupt your market.

Andrea talks briefly about her past and how she made the choice to change. Andrea talks about setting a vision for what you’d like to have or change. Andrea calls it taking the biggest risk you can stomach, right now. We talk about that fact that it doesn’t have to be perfect and how you can change your vision. Andrea talks about it starts with taking small steps but the vision was grand for where she wanted to go. She talks about shifting your mindset to take responsibility for our lives.

Andrea talks about the courage to taking responsibility for how you feel allowing you to feel empowered. No one is going to tell you that it is your turn, you have to pick yourself. We talk about that you don’t need to know how but you need to know what.

Today, I’m sharing with you 8 of my productive strategies to help you get back in the mood when you aren’t feeling it so you can get things done.

  • Get to moving
  • Journal on it
  • Meditate
  • Prioritize your task differently
  • Work from an alternate location
  • Create a routine
  • Outsource things that aren’t in your zone of genius
  • Re-access are you really working on the things you love

The Savviness Report: Savvy Self-Care

The Savviness Report: Savvy Self-Care

The’s no arguing that running a successful business, requires you to be a savvy business owner and CEO!

When I work with my clients and Savvy Business Mastermind members on transforming them to savvy business owners and CEO, the word savvy takes on a bigger meaning. It means being shrewd and smart in all areas of life. It means showing up as your best self every single day, not overdoing, working smarter and not harder to build a business that supports you.

Showing up at this level means that you have to devote time to self-care practices. (And I don’t mean spa-ing it up every week – although if that’s what gets you to show up as your most powerful self – then you go, girl! You do you.)

The first objection new clients have to this notion is: “um – I’m already strapped for time here!? How in the heck do you want me to fit anything else in!?”

And to help you:

I asked some of our Savvy Business Mastermind Members to spill the beans on how they prioritize self-care (and still have time to get everything else in their busy lives and businesses done!)

 

The Savviness Report

“For me it’s Meditation: I remind myself that I’m worth 10 minutes out of 1440 minutes each day. I meditate in bed before reaching for my phone or even putting my feet on the floor. During this time, I set my intentions for the day and use 3 affirmations that are meaningful to me at that time (my affirmations change depending on what’s happening in life at that time). I also budget for at least one monthly self-care splurge—massage, float therapy, acupuncture, etc.”  Haley Elise Stewart, CEO & Owner of Tranquility by HeHe – Concierge Doula + Birthing Service

The Savviness Report“AIRPLANE MODE IS YOUR FRIEND. Before I go into Airplane Mode, I: 1) check “urgent” emails and tell others I’ll get back to them soon (so that I’m not worrying about them while I’m unplugged); 2) message anyone who I anticipate will need my attention and tell them specifically that I’m unplugging for a bit (honestly, 2 hours in this mode feels AMAZING; I try to do it for most of the day Sunday but that’s trickier). Here’s my how and why: As a writer, I feel constant pressure to produce creative content. This generates two problems: 1) when I’m anxious, what I produce isn’t coming from the heart but informed by the stress, overwhelm, and frenzy of social media; 2) it creates the illusion that I’m the only one who can produce the “the next big thing” (#ego). When I make time: 1) there’s space for creative thoughts to float, morph, and take shape; 2) I can actually do deep dives into OTHER PEOPLE’S creative work (not just reading their posts but visiting their exhibits or reading their work etc.); 3) I feel inspired, refreshed, and bring new ideas to the table (and have gained perspective around my own work) “Julia Djeke, CEO and Founder of Julia Djeke (Copy & Content Creation)

The Savvy Report

My non-negotiable every day is meditation. Why? Because meditation is the number one self care tool that’s been around for thousands of years. By pausing and centering yourself, you are in charge of your day rather than being in a reactionary state.

Alex Bynum, CEO & Founder of EmpowHerYou, Healing and Meditation

 

No matter what is happening in my life, I always prioritize my sleep. This is a non-negotiable. Even if work is really busy, I always make sure I get 7-8 hours of sleep per night. I do the best work for my clients and I can show up fully each day when I’m well rested.

Janet Mesh, CEO and Co-Founder of Aimtal – a digital marketing company

{Podcast} Part 2: How to crush it and be more productive.

Productive does not mean doing more.

I’m currently in sunny Florida – so I’m the opposite of productive this week. Instead, I’m taking some time to reset and rest so I can produce that quality work that we spoke about in podcast Episode 24 of The Savvy Business Show. (If you haven’t listened to it yet, do so before you hop over today’s one.)

In today’s episode, we take a deep dive on all the tips and strategies to prioritize your time better.

One thing I forgot to mention in the episode is automating my own personal appointments. The first thing that goes out the door when things get busy in my business is time for life. So in order to combat this – because you can’t run a business feeling and look like crap… so I make sure to make my appointment for next time when I’m at the dentist, the dog groomers, salons, etc. This way it’s scheduled and when it’s scheduled it happens!

A CEO mindset and how to make the shift in your business.

A lot of my mastermind clients come to me because as CEOs of their business they are ready to scale and expand. A mastermind group is more than coaching and really allows you to grow as a business owner and in your mindset. Yet most people aren’t sold on the idea that they need a coach.

Is it really the best investment for their business?

{Podcast} Part 1: How to crush it and be more productive.

Welcome to part 1 of how to crush is and be more productive.

In today’s episode, we’ll take a look at what’s causing your obsession with feeling like you’re not productive enough.

In a society where we’re all conditioned to have to be ON 24-7 and be super productive ALL.THE.TIME – we somewhere along the line got our wires crossed with what being productive actually means.

The word productivity is LOADED with all sorts of emotion:
  • There’s guilt if you’re not constantly DOING
  • There’s a feeling of pressure and angst to perform
  • And the list can go on.

And when you’re not being productive you’re perceived to be lazy or you say you’re “procrastinating”

And both the words above have super negative connections to them.

All of the above is keeping you stuck, exhausted and over-working without stellar results. So let’s dive in and help crush it and become more productive (without the burnout!)

About Janet:

Janet Mesh is the CEO + Co-Founder of Aimtal, a digital marketing agency. Through Aimtal, Janet provides digital and content marketing services to her clients in the B2B and B2C industries.

After freelancing full-time for two years, Janet decided to start the digital marketing agency in order to scale her marketing offerings.

 

 

Before joining the mastermind, I knew that I wanted to turn my freelancing career into an actual company and to officially embrace my entrepreneurial dreams. It can be lonely and confusing working in a silo and I knew I would really benefit from meeting with a group of women who were in the same boat as me. One of my weaknesses is procrastinating and I knew that the mastermind group + Hanneke would hold me accountable to finally start my agency. Since joining the group, I set up my LLC, hired a graphic designer to create our logo and branding, hired a contractor to help with client work so I can free up time to focus on building my business, and I’m on track to already hitting my annual revenue goal of $100K! Most of all, I love that I can bounce ideas off the ladies in the mastermind. It’s great having a support system and accountability buddies!

Grab The Five Questions You Must Ask Yourself Before Deciding On A Mastermind

How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for you

How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for you

How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for youHow do you know when a mastermind is NOT the right thing for you?

The worst thing you can do for yourself, your business and the mastermind group, you’re looking to join, is to enroll and then realize it was the wrong move for you and your business.

 

Masterminds are not a quick magic fix/magic bullet:

Masterminds are not silver bullets (and nothing in life or business is). So if you’re joining a mastermind thinking that it will magically fix everything in your business overnight and turn you into a massive success, don’t bother.

Masterminds work well because it helps people to show up consistently, keep them focused, ups their accountability, and provides them with concrete feedback that will cut down on the time it does take to achieve goals. But you still have to do the work. Which brings us to the next point…

 

You get out of a mastermind what you put into it:

Like anything in life: you get what you put in. If you are not ready to show up prepared with specific goals and takeaways that you want to get out of your membership or out of every meeting. Then a mastermind is not the place for you. Masterminds are about you showing up contributing to the group as well as asking for support. In the four years that I’ve been running masterminds, the people who got the most results from the program were those who made the mastermind meetings a priority. They showed up ready to engage and receive every single time.

 

What are your business objectives?

Be specific. What are the goals of your business? What do you want to achieve? Make sure that your goals and that of the mastermind match up. And be sure that you look for a group that has a specific focus, beyond accountability and business growth.

In my experience when you simply join a mastermind that promises vague objectives you’ll end up with less focus, structure and vague results. (Trust me on this one – I’ve been in masterminds like this and I’m also sorry to say that I learned this lesson the hard way when putting my own groups together in my earlier years of running masterminds.)

That’s why the Savvy Business Masterminds today have clear objectives with a defined mission: The Savvy Business Masterminds is a network of ambitious entrepreneurs whose mission is to grow their companies, while transforming to savvy CEOs, working with more ease and intention. In our community we heavily focus on helping you to stop overworking, making more money – working less.

 

Know how you learn best:

If you know that you like collaboration, contribution, connecting and receiving feedback in a group format then masterminds are the perfect place for you to be. And you don’t have to be an extrovert to thrive in a mastermind (I’m an introvert and love being challenged by the group to be more visible and lean in.)

If group things are not for you and you don’t enjoy group settings then I’d recommend that you look into hiring a business coach to work with you privately.

You don’t vibe with or respect the moderator:

What you’ll get out of the mastermind heavily depends on the moderator and their ability to put a great group together. Therefore, it goes without saying that it’s very important that you like and respect the organizer/moderator of the mastermind group. On this one, it’s very important to trust your gut. If you don’t vibe with them do not join the mastermind group.

 

Finally: 

Masterminds hold amazing potential to help you expand your business and your network but in order for you to reap all the benefits, you have to make sure that it’s the right fit for how you work and also be prepared to show up fully present and do the work!

{Podcast} Overcoming your resistance to expansion

{Podcast} Overcoming your resistance to expansion

A lot of my private and mastermind clients come to me because they are ready to scale and expand their business but may not be clear on how or where to go next. As a result of this lack of clarity, they often get overwhelmed by the responsibilities and added workload that comes with expansion. This causes a lot of resistance and fear and ultimately keeps business owners from taking their businesses to the next level and losing their passion for business.

Here’s Why Forbes Says You Must Join A Mastermind

“Having people around to call on when you need it is one of the soundest investments you can make.” I couldn’t agree more with Forbes Magazine on this. If you look at the most successful people in business, you’ll notice that none of them got there alone. They leveraged the crap out of their networks and connections, invest in support, created buy-in from others, and then they achieved massive success. Click here to read the entire article.

Choosing a mastermind:

There are many mastermind groups out there today, so it can be difficult to know which one will be the right fit for your business. In this post, I share three things to look for and make sure your mastermind group adheres to before deciding to join it.

1: Who’s the facilitator

Make sure your facilitator is a certified coach and a master facilitator. A certified coach will be able to listen and notice things that are not visible to others. A certified coach has the skill set that will allow them to give incredible feedback/laser coach you on the spot – and this will snap you right into alignment!
When you join a mastermind that’s led by a coach you’ll have the added benefit of upgrading to private coaching sessions when you need it with someone who you already know and trust. And they’ll be able to help you dial in and align with your wisest self, gain clarity, and help you to truly sync in with your gut and the best strategies for your unique business. While your mastermind buddies will give you amazing support, feedback, brainstorm challenges and will hold you accountable.

2: How are the masterminds put together?

When you’re the member of a mastermind, you’re both a receiver of support and a contributor of your own expertise and knowledge. A truly dynamic mastermind is thus curated to consist of a team of people who are high-level thinkers. These groups have diverse backgrounds and experience which enrich the opportunity for collaboration and the ability to be challenged and be pushed outside your comfort zone! Make sure that your mastermind is hand-selected and vetted.

3: What’s the objective of the mastermind group?

When you’re looking to join a mastermind group, be sure to look for one that’s aiming to deliver the same outcomes as you’re striving for. Not all business masterminds are created equally. So be sure to know what you want to receive from your mastermind group and make sure that everyone is striving for that same common goal. Ask the leader of the masterminds what the specific outcomes and goals are of the mastermind. Think about your specific goals and see if they align with the mastermind’s objective.

{Podcast} Journaling your way to clarity & success!

{Podcast} Journaling your way to clarity & success!

I’m very excited to share this episode with you today as I had so much feedback when I did a little poll about it on my Instagram stories ( follow me @hannekeantonelli, if you don’t already :)).

 

But back to today’s episode… I’m going to share all the ways that will inspire and help you to make journaling a more consistent part of your routine and help you use it in a way to get better results in your business and life.

 

Why do I recommend journaling:

It’s a great tool to build awareness, to clear your mind, help you make big decisions, and finally to create clarity on what actions to take next to create the business and life you want. I’ve also found that when I have resistance (or as some like to call it: when I procrastinate), journaling helps to highlight what’s creating that resistance to take action and helps me to get back in the flow.

Before I start:

I need you to really hear the following: there is no right or wrong way to journal. Don’t get stuck in the “how do I do it perfectly” trap. However you want to use what I’m about to share today is perfect, why? Because it’s how YOU want to use it. It’s YOURS and you can take what I share, add, subtract, chop and change… the main thing here is to have fun with it!

How a mastermind will keep you grounded, accountable and help you achieve massive results

How a mastermind will keep you grounded, accountable and help you achieve massive results

There is nothing quite like feeling connected and fully supported in your business! And that’s precisely what being part of a mastermind provides you – mastermind support. Having this high level of support naturally helps you to feel more grounded.

As Forbes said: “Having people around to call on when you need it is one of the soundest investments you can make.”

Mastermind support goes beyond that.

When you participate in the mastermind, you state your goals, ideas, and dreams out loud in a safe space where people are cheering you on and rooting for your success. And, no – it’s not always unicorns and rainbows, your mastermind buddies will also call you out on your BS and get real with you when you need a good kicking up the a$$.

Which means you’re way more aligned with your goals and will take all the measures possible to achieve them because you’re being held accountable on a deep level.

Imagine if you had this level of accountability and connection in your business? Apply to be part of the Savvy Business Masterminds today!
