{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!)

{Podcast} Mindset Shifts you Must Make to Scale!

Join savvy business mastermind member and the CEO of Aimtal – a digital marketing agency, Janet Mesh and I for a conversation on how masterminds help you to shift your mindset from freelancer, to business owner and then confident CEO!

Have a listen now to hear how to shift your mindset to that of a confident CEO.

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 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.

But what if they were coming at expansion all wrong?

In today’s podcast episode of The Savvy Business Show, we help you to shift your perspective and come at expansion with a whole new angle and less resistance!

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.

 

Five signs that indicate you need a mastermind to up-level your business

(if you ask me :)) but how do you know if you’re ready to join and if it’s the right thing for your business to join a mastermind? Click here to see the five signs that indicate that a mastermind is what you need to grow your business.

Three things to look for when 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. Click here to read more.

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. 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.”

But it 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!

Mastermind Case Study

Mastermind Case Study

KT-8496_vcropWhen I started the Savvy Business Mastermind:
  • My website had not yet launched.
  • I had no new clients for the year.
  • I was living in a state of panic/fear that I was not going to succeed.
  • I had no benchmarks or strategies in place by which to measure my growth

Even though I had been reading motivational business books and forcing myself to attend networking events I knew something needed to change. Making the intentional financial decision to work with a business coach in a committed and collaborative is the absolute best decision I have made for my business yet. The tangible, as well as the psychological benefits of Hanneke’s mastermind, have exceeded my expectations.  Because the mastermind has transformed my overall approach, I feel far greater equipped to weather the peaks and valleys of daily business ownership.

Tangibles:
Since starting the Savvy Business Mastermind my income ( specifically for my business) is currently at 96% of what my entire income was between March-December of the previous year.

 

Personal:
I did not go into the mastermind thinking that I would necessarily make friends, but I have been so pleasantly surprised to have done just that. 😊

{Podcast} Why SMART goals are SO DUMB!

{Podcast} Why SMART goals are SO DUMB!

SMART GOALS:
It’s almost the last day of 2019 and lots of people are putting the finishing touches on their goals and intentions for the new year ahead. I personally love this time of year, there’s so much excitement in the air, so much hope of all the possibilities that can be achieved in the year ahead.

But I also see a lot of angst and confusion: so many people are jumping on the SMART goal setting wagon that all “gurus” out there are shouting about… only to get their panties all up in a bunch because it’s all so constricting. And not knowing that they’re actually setting themselves up to fail massively because SMART goals are actually dumb.

It’s no wonder that a lot of people give up on setting goals or making new years resolutions. All this SMART goal setting is creating pressure and confusion…

I so got roped into this with you! Until last year I used to be on the SMART goal bandwagon but then I realized that most of my of the time when I set SMART goals – I failed. Getting so freaking clear and specific (And realistic) on them was actually making me white-knuckle my goals and strangling them to death…

 

Getting SMART on my goals meant I was taking all the fun and creativity out of it. And asking around it became so clear that a whole lot of business people and entrepreneurs felt the same. So then I got curious: Where SMART goals came from in the first place? We’ve all heard people talking about them. So if this is the case then who came up with this concept?

Hop on over to today’s episode to hear where SMART goals came from, why most people are using it incorrectly and what to do instead!

{Podcast} The biggest thing you’re overlooking as you grow your business

{Podcast} The biggest thing you’re overlooking as you grow your business

Grow your business: I see the following happen with so many business owners.

They start their business and then when things start going well they’ll start to invest and expand, adding new talent, services, new offices, etc….

But a big majority of these business owners never invest in their own personal development and leadership.

Instead, they continue to run their company in the same way. Not defining their evolving role in the company or leading from it either and failing to get clear on their vision and mission and leading from that.

In today’s episode, I highlight why this is dangerous and what companies are doing to combat it.

{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
