Business Growth And Innovation w/ Gianne Doherty

On today’s episode of The Savvy Business Show, we have another very special guest. Gianne Doherty and Jay Weeks founded Organic Bath Co. a skincare line that uses clean ingredients to nourish your skin.  They also founded the Well Summit, which is an event dedicated to helping you live your healthiest and most fulfilling life. This power couple knows how to innovate and get things done.

And today – we take a dive into how they’ve manage to pivot their business and continue to show up as supportive pillars of the community

Let’s Dive in…

Gianne talks with us today about how she was able to quickly pivot her business when COVID-19 pandemic hit the US. Gianne had already been thinking about launching a hand sanitizer for her company Organic Bath Co. This need in the community and the world pushed her to pivot so that she could provide a completely clean alternative.

Organic Bathe Co partnered with Bully Boy Distillers to create this new product. With the launch of the product they were able to develop a plan that allows them to ounce to ounce match your doncations to frontline workers.

Gianne also discusses how she leans into and trusts the power of prayer to continue to move forward in uncertain times. Her motto is:

 Learn to rest, not to quit

Many people during these uncertain times have become overwhelemed and feel like giving up. It’s during these times that we need to embrace the non-busyness for a change and let your mind go and create that space for you to maybe even see that thing that you’ve always not done could possibly be something that helps you work through the next million dollar idea. It’s all possible.


The Uplevel Project

Do you want to expand despite the world around you contracting?

Do you want to step into your highest level of leadership even though you’re so freaking tired?

Do you want to innovate in the face of an uncertain future? 

If the answer is yes then all you have to do is choose to show up, think, and act differently every day.

But how does one do this? 

It takes commitment, it takes awareness and it takes you implementing certain strategies every day. 
And in the Up Level Project, I’ll share the step-by-step and tailored to your specific needs process with you.

Business Growth And Innovation w/ Janice Carte

Business Growth And Innovation w/ Janice Carte

In today’s episode of The Savvy Business Show, we have another very special guest. Janice Carte is the founder of Tiny Spoon Chef. Tiny Spoon Chef works with busy families, single professionals, and working couples to bring excitement and pleasure to mealtimes at home. Today Janice and I are going to dive in and talk about mistakes that we see business owners make, lessons that she’s learned, and advice for other business owners.

Janice Carte, the CEO of Tiny Spoon Chef, a Boston-based personal chef company bringing healthy, deeply flavorful food to an awesome network of clients – from major league athletes to local daycare owners –  every week.

On paper, she’s an expert in food. In reality, her superpower is relationships.

After years in the restaurant scene, Tiny Spoon Chef began with Janice cooking for a single client at their home. Through word of mouth alone, her side project grew into a full-time business.

In seven years, her success includes 50+ regular clients. A staff of five chefs, and a sustainability-focused home cooking app launching this year.

Let’s dive in…


When Janice started Tiny Spoon Chef, like a lot of people, she was working a day job that was not completely engaging. Janice did a little personal chef in the past, working for friends, kind of one-off jobs. Then more requests started to come in. Before too long, she had three or four clients and a pretty busy side hustle. Tiny Spoon Chef was born!

One of the things that we discuss in this episode is that many business owners during this time of uncertainty felt the need to lower their prices in order to still continue to operate in their business.

This however did not help provide them any relief as they were still working the same amount of time for half of the price. This leads to the business making half of the profits for the same amount of time leaving little to no room to scale your business.

Janice learned this lesson early on as she charged significantly less when she started her business as she was working to build it.

As she got further along she realized that in order to have a successful business that allowed her to work on her craft and grow her business. She needed to cultivate her business to reflect the value that she was putting in, as well as determine her ideal client that she would be able to make a difference with.

When building Tiny Spoon Chef, Janice has made relationship building a cornerstone to its success. For The Tiny Chef, relationship building allows her to make sure people feel seen, feel human, and feel supported.

She has supported her clients by doing things like sending presents to their kids and sending stamps and asking them to write letters to their grandparents.

When doing these things and building the relationships, the business came organically from a loving and genuine place.

During this episode Janice shares some business tips and marketing success stories. And was able to implement, perfect, and grow her business.

    How she’s growing now w/ Janet Mesh

    How she’s growing now w/ Janet Mesh

    In the next few episodes of The Savvy Business Show, we’re going to interview some of the phenomenal business owners who in-spite of the current COVID-19 situation have been able to not only show up but either grow or sustain their businesses. 

    Our distinguished guest today is Janet Mesh, who is the CEO and Co-founder of Aimtal, a digital marketing agency that provides digital and content marketing services to clients.

    Let’s dive in…

    Now, why is it important for us to listen to them? Well, when we see other people do amazing and great things, it inspires us to continue to step up, show up, while creating and achieving our goals and the impact (plus change) we want to see in the world. That is why I wanted to bring back today Janet Mesh.

    After freelancing full time for two years, Janet decided to start the digital marketing agency to scale her marketing offers.  I have known Janet for quite a while. She has been a client of mine and I have just been so impressed with how she has built her business to work remotely so fast and everything that she’s accomplished since starting her business.

    I specifically wanted to bring her back here today to tell us how she has helped her clients to pivot and innovate during this time and what mindset shifts she has had to make to continue to show up and lead her team from her highest self.

    One of the key things that Janet and her team focused on was communication. Having a remote team all over the world it was important to Aimtel to tighten up their communications from the beginning. They felt this was important so that their team would be able to communicate their needs as well as continue to support their clients. They used this time to also helo their clients better communicate with their teams.

    Janet’s team also made sure that they kept a pulse on what was planned in the upcoming months for their clients. This allowed them to shift their conferences and marketing efforts towards webinars and online marketing strategies.

    Come find out more and how Janet and her team at Aimtel used their resources and gratitude to help them pivot and sustain their business.

      Resilience + Money Mindset in Practice

      Resilience + Money Mindset in Practice

      In today’s episode of The Savvy Business Show, we have a very special guest. This special guest is the editor of this podcast, the go-to video guy, and also my husband.

      Robert Antonelli is the owner of Antonelli Visual Media, and today he is going to talk with us about how his resiliency routine and money mindset have helped during this time when COVID-19 has severely impacted his business.

      Let’s dive in…


      During the COVID-19 epidemic many entrepreneurs have had to make a shift to their business.

      Today we are going to talk about the things that have helped him show up every single day and continue on despite uncertainty and the challenges he has faced.

      Robert runs a video production company whose primary focuses on weddings. Unfortunately with COVID-19 the wedding industry has been hit hard. This has made a huge impact on the financial budget well into 2021.

      Bob has joined me to develop a resiliency routine that works for us. You might be asking yourself how do you get a partner to start a resiliency routine with you that perhaps they were hesitant to do before. By enthusiastically sharing your ideas with another allows you to inspire others to start theirs.

      So what steps has Robert taken to focus on his resiliency routine?

      Meditation

      Starting his day with meditation allows him to get present with himself. This helps him to not have tunnel vision and control stress so that he can focus on possible solutions. It has allowed him to release attachment to the outcomes that were supposed to happen.

      Focusing on the Money Mindset

      Letting go of the worry where money will come from and letting go of worry that you won’t get anymore business, because it is out of your control.

      This opens up your mind to allow you to focus on new opportunities that can come your way. It is a time where you allow your business to grow in the direction that it should. Opening his business up for innovation.

      Remember that this will not always be the thing that you want to do, but when you have this routine you will see results. Having a resiliency routine and money mindset makes you more resilient, helps you to adapt, to bounce back, and to move forward.

        How to Lead with More Ease (even now)

        How to Lead with More Ease (even now)

        Two things to help you lead with ease

        I’ve had many conversations with clients and business owners over the last few weeks and one thing became very clear. Everyone is experiencing various levels of EXHAUSTION, Overwhelm, with periods of freak-out and we’re all going to be ok in between.

        Right now – everyone is OVERLOADED with information and hardcore business strategies of how to go digital faster, how to get funding, etc. With this information OVERLOAD, all of my clients have expressed how little bandwidth they have at the moment. BECAUSE everyone is strategizing like a champ already! You already have/know of or are applying all the BUSINESS strategies to handle this situation. 

        BUT SOMETHING IS MISSING! 

        That something is strategies to help you ground, focus, lead with ease. This falls under the mindset category.

        For this very reason that I will not be delivering any content on social media or here that is more information about things/strategies to DO. Of course, if that’s what YOU need right now – I’m more than happy to hop on a private call with you and brainstorm the living daylights out of ideas with you while helping you to stay in possibility land. 

        It’s my intention to help ground and focus you during this time so you can continue to lead your business and team with ease and confidence.

        How do I know this is needed? Because this is what I’ve been helping every client do right now, and you know what the results have been? 

        They’ve come up with crazy innovative ideas, they’ve been able to take massive action, and execute those plans in record time. Some of them have even gained new clients. 

        So that’s why it’s important that you have these tools in your mindset toolkit too. 

        Today I’m going to share two quick and easy ways to help you tap back into both ease and confidence by asking yourself the following: 

        What do you need right now at this very moment? 

        I’ve personally been doing this every day. Remember that right now – I’m having to hold the space for people who are freaking out and unloading on me EVERY DAY. In order to help and guide them to come up with the very best innovative solutions that will help their business not only survive in the short run but thrive in the long run, I need to show up grounded and calm. 

        And the way to do that is to NURTURE me. 

        Your clients and your team are looking to you to lead them right now, and it will be easier to do that when you feel nurtured and taken care of yourself. 

        Here are ideas from what clients have shared and I have been doing:

        • Take that nap
        • Have a bath
        • Take a walk 
        • Learn to do magic tricks
        • Crochet
        • Have that glass of wine
        • Have the cookie 
        • Cook a wholesome meal

        Nurturing is also going to help you feel safe. Which is so important in this time where your physical well being is at risk. Bringing in rituals that promote safety will reduce your stress levels 

        And when we’re less stressed – we do everything better.

        The other question I’ve been asking myself is and been helping clients with too 

        Who do you want to become throughout the next few months?

        This will be unique to every person. Right now, as the leader of your business, you have the choice to sink or swim. This crisis may highlight leadership qualities that you can strengthen.

        Personally I want to become more resilient, I want to trust harder and deeper than ever before. I want to show up as a beacon of strength for clients, a source of support, kindness, and courage. 

        When you ask yourself this question, it allows you to focus on what you have to do to be that higher wiser version of yourself. It helps you to draw and call up your strengths vs feed into your weaknesses. 

        And when you can step into your highest level of leadership – it lights the way to what needs to be done, and how to get it done. It pulls you into action and forwards motion despite uncertainty. 

        And that’s what your business and your team need more than anything right now. 

        Both of these strategies will promote more ease in a time when ease is needed more than ever before. 

        I’m sending you lots of strength and courage and please know that you are more than welcome to reach out if you need help or support right now. I’m here to help ease this period of stress and overwhelm and build a stronger business than ever before.

        Building your resiliency

        Building your resiliency

        Today’s, Savvy Business Show talks about offering three strategies to building your resiliency.

        It’s been an incredibly crazy few weeks – as one of my clients put it – it feels like we’ve lived multiple lifetimes from one day to the next while the magnificent scope of the impact of the COVID-19 virus settled in on us.  Today I offer three strategies to build your resiliency.

        Let’s dive in…

        As a business owner, I’m sure you’ve had so many disruptions to plans, you’ve had to pivot, adjust and adjust your plans again. Putting out a million fires daily to help you, your team and your clients during this uncertain time.

        And I’m sure  – all of this has resulted in copious amounts of stress, worry, and most likely overwhelming and sometimes debilitation fear. And it’s all so understandable.

        And it’s important that we not only give ourselves permission to feel all of our emotions at this moment -I know I’ve personally felt a ton of emotions ranging from grief, sadness, anger -. Because right now – more than ever it’s super important for you to be as grounded as you can possibly be. When we are grounded we are better equipped to lead others and to make better decisions.

        Right now you have to lean into resiliency more than ever before.

        So how do we get grounded and how do you become more resilient? In today’s episode, I’m going to share a few things that will help you become better at both.

        1 – FEEL ALL YOUR FEELINGS:

        No matter what you’re feeling right now – it’s all NORMAL. SO allow yourself to feel it. By allowing ourselves to feel our feelings we’re better able to process things and also it allows us to let the energy flow through us vs getting stuck somewhere.

        Sometimes it helps to physically move your body to allow the feelings to flow through you – so go for a walk, or do an exercise class at home.

        Doing this will both reduce stress and induce your body with endorphins that will help reduce stress.

        And it’s important that we not only give ourselves permission to feel all of our emotions at this moment – but it’s also important that we put strategies in place to cope with it.

        Make sure you distance yourself from things that cause extra stress right now.

        2 – MAKING PEACE THAT YOU’RE NOT IN CONTROL:

        If there’s one thing that the last few weeks have really driven home it’s this:

        WE DO NOT HAVE CONTROL OVER EVERYTHING.

        Now, this is nothing new, of course.

        Ironically we have been happily sitting on a rock that’s going a million miles a minute around an explosive sun for billions of years, and on this rock that we call earth disease, ice ages, wars have always happened, pretending that we have so much control.

        But the truth is there are some things  – like the rise and setting of the sun and the moon, the seasons, and now – STRESSING COVID-19 – that we have no control over.

        SO how do we stay grounded when we are not in control!? We have to surrender that which we do not have control over and take responsibility and action for that which we do have control of.

        Here’s an exercise to help you do this:

        Write out all your fears: then go through and ask yourself: do have I have control over this or not?

        If the answer is not – then practice letting go and surrendering that fear to a higher power.

        One way of doing this is to say a  mantra-like: 

        I release this problem or fear of a higher power and trust that it will all work out.

        For the fears that you do have control over: what action can you or do you have to take to overcome the obstacle?

        3: WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT FILL YOUR CUP?

        Our immediate knee jerk reaction when things get tough is to deprive ourselves of all the fun and nice things that fulfill us. And this is the BIGGEST mistake that you as a business owner and any human, really, can make in testing times.

        Right now it’s crucial that you protect your businesses’ biggest asset: YOU – that means keep making time for hobbies, exercise, enough sleep.

        If you’re not sure or can’t remember what those things are right now, start with something small – like taking a walk daily or doing a little gratitude list at the end of the day, taking a bath.

        It can also help to think of things that you always say you’ll do in future – like when I accomplish x, then I’ll make time to_____ (what’s that blank for you!?) Do that  -if it’s possible now.

        Think of things that usually relax you and make a list that you can do daily!

        For me it’s the following:

        I wake up at the same time every day and I meditate for 10 minutes and journal for a little bit. Then I make myself a nice cup of coffee and I write – writing brings me joy.

        After that, I go for a 30-minute walk and only then I start my day.

        Right now – while social distancing is in effect, I check in with a friend every afternoon.

        My hubby and I take another walk with our pup in the late afternoon. 

        And then I cook a healthy meal and we watch something fun and light on TV.

        I also sprinkle in weekly baths here, listen to music often and try to do something creative around the house.

        DOing all of the above helps me stay as calm as possible in these trying times.

        How to Grow Credibility and Visibility Fast in Your Business?

        How to Grow Credibility and Visibility Fast in Your Business?

        Today, on the Savvy Business Show I talk with Alessandra Pollina about how to gain credibility and visibility fast in your business. Alessandra is a member of the Savvy Business Masterminds.

        Alessandra has been part of the Mastermind community for the last year now and over this year Alessandra has hit so many amazing milestones in her business.

        Her success includes finally cracking the elusive six-figure revenue mark, rented her first full-time office space, she also expanded her team and hired her first employee.

        Alessandra holds a bachelor of science in communications from Boston University’s College of communications. Throughout her college years, she held many internships in the PR field at some of the best agencies in Boston.

        This vast array of experiences became the foundation of Alessandra’s PR career and positioned her to launch her own company, Pollina PR + Marketing, a full-service boutique PR and marketing agency, in 2012 at just 23 years old.

        Alessandra also loves to work one on one with business owners to train them on the tactics, strategy, and implementation best-practices for carrying out their own PR and marketing.

        She’s also the founder of the Female Millennial Entrepreneurs Boston networking group and she also launched The Female Millennial Entrepreneur Podcast in 2019.

        Let’s dive in…

        In the entrepreneurial world, people tend to follow around a little bit before they realize what’s best for them.

        Sometimes I say this to people that we think, it’s so much pressure to decide what to do and there’re so many things we might enjoy doing or wanting to do, but make a conscious decision, pick something and stick with it.

        Sometimes we all like doing stuff a little bit here and there but when it comes to my business, I stay pretty consistent, as I was able to build it into something.

        Who are my clients?

        • Clients are mostly from small to mid-sized businesses
        • It’s a LOT more about people you’re working with and not the type of businesses you’re catering to
        • Enjoying who you’re working with is more important than which business they belong to
        • Constraining to some specific type becomes frustrating – marketing one-on-one, right there for everyone
        • It all boils down to what clients want, what they want out of it and where I specialize in what I provide them, a lot more than I specialize in working with this type of client.

        What do I do for my clients?

        • Media relations side of things – media outreach for clients
        • PR and marketing services

        How do you talk to people who say: “yeah PR….., I’ve heard about it and that I’m never quite sure if it’s worth it” – how would you explain or speak to someone like that on the fence of the value of PR?

        I try explaining:
        • It helps build your reputation so well and so fast because
        • If you’re getting yourself out there, people are seeing and hearing about whatever you do and that you exist for them to be reached out to
        • It helps to reach out to your target audience
        • PR helps you to get in front of much wider audiences in less of a targetted way like you’re not emailing a specific list of people who’ve already found you and signed up for something
        • It also helps build credibility especially online through the links wherever you’ve been featured
        • Clients and consumers can find you while researching online and can refer to others also building a web of connections around you

        There are other ways easier to do yourself which is faster to carry out too like getting yourself out through a podcast, post to a website or editorial or letter to the editor or newspaper or something like that….. it’s like something you’ve actually created and you’re placing it somewhere else which is even one step further than content marketing.

        Some other PR ways to reach out

        • If you’re a local business like for pilates or something, one could partner with other local brands and put on an event together in a way where you’re essentially sharing lists or audiences where you reach out to their audience and vice versa
        • Any time when your business or your company or yourself is interacting with your public which can be anybody or anything to do with like if you’re a big company, investor relations, employee relations, customer relations fall under that and not just selling or marketing stuff

        When its time to hire a PR agency?

        • When it becomes too much time consuming and that you can afford to hire someone
        • There’s a need to build relationships and maintain consistency
        • When you know reaching out to people is not your forte and not something you enjoy doing the most and that you also don’t have the bandwidth for it

        How the DIY PR COURSE helps people?

        • It’s a step-by-step process like creating your media kit, how will you be presenting your business, what you want to be promoting
        • Instead of overwhelming your audience, it encourages you to pick up only two or maybe three things that are your messages for the next six months or so – you don’t need a ton of different messages and pitches
        • Keep it as simple as possible
        • Doing yourself is sometimes best as you’re going to be providing a real personalized pitch than somebody else is putting it out for you

        You can find Alessandra at Pollina PR or on Instagram.

        My Recent Cancer Scare

        My Recent Cancer Scare

        Before I share today’s episode I want to make it abundantly clear that I hate being dramatic so even talking about this is totally uncomfortable for me because other people are not so lucky to have it just be a scare… and if you’re one of those people or you have a family member who’s currently fighting cancer – know that I’m sending so much love to you and your family.

        I didn’t share this as it was happening as I deeply believe in processing and digesting things first before you share it all out to the world. In my opinion, when we do this we are of better service to others.

        SO in today’s episode, I want to share how processing this scare has influenced my business.

        Let’s dive in…

        Hello There Listeners and welcome back to the Savvy Business Show.

        When we look at the online business world and what they teach it’s all the sexy shiny “make your first 6 figures in 60 days” Or Your blue-print to 7 figures now! …

        And I get it… that’s the sexy stuff, the “cool marketing strategies”

        But the reality of the matter is that a sustainable and profitable business takes WAYYY more than just sexy marketing, a funnel or drip campaign… it involves way more than converting clients and making sales…

        And the online #girlboss #bossbabe rah-rah world NEVER talks about the rest…

        And I get it  – it’s not sexy… but this stuff that they’re not discussing is CRUCIAL to building concrete and solid business.

        SO what does all this have to do with my recent cancer scare?

        You see I grew up with a dad who worked in the debt collection side of a bank for a while. This is the department that goes to repossess people’s belongings.

        My dad had some funny stories of people shooting at them when they would go to give notice that things would be repossessed. But he also had some very sad stories of widows who lost everything because their husband died and they didn’t have insurance….

        Hence when my husband asked if he could marry me – my dad’s first question before giving him permission was:” Do you have life insurance!?”

        The thing is we never know when we’re going to get that scare that turns into real bad stuff…

        So when I received my scary news back in May 2019 – it immediately made me think of all the things in my business that’s been on my to-do list ( but because they’re not sexy to do had been pushed to the back burner…)

        A lot of the processes and foundational work in my business have already been set up pretty well – but there was one big loophole for me and that was disability insurance and a life insurance policy for myself. 

        Running a business is a risky business as it is  – so making sure that everything’s set up to support and keep you as safe as possible is really important for you to be able to then do the “sexy” business stuff with more confidence and ease.

        SO what in your business isn’t bulletproof yet? 

        Have you tightened up your contracts, health insurance, do you have an operations manual?

        Can your team continue to run with things when you are not there? 

        Are all the passwords to everything available somewhere for team members?

        What do you have to take care of now so you can have peace of mind? Take action now  – trust me it’s going to make you feel so supported and safe and will then help you to grow a successful business with a strong foundation.

        How to Be As Successful As Marie Forleo

        How to Be As Successful As Marie Forleo

        Today’s Savvy Business Show talks about looking at some of the steps that Marie Forleo took to create the huge success she has today and how you can adapt these steps to help you boost your business too.

        Let’s dive in…

        Hello There Listeners and welcome back to the Savvy Business Show. 

        It’s B-School time again and the interwebs and your inbox are BUZZING and flooded with everything about the program.

        If you’re new to Marie Forleo and her B-School program, here’s a quick rundown: Marie Forleo is an American life coach, motivational speaker, author and web television host of Marie TV.

        She is the owner of Marie Forleo International, B-School and MarieTV.

        B-School is her 8-week program that helps entrepreneurs to build online businesses. It’s intense with a TON of information.

        I took it in 2014 when I had no idea how to market and I did find it helpful, however – if you’re a seasoned business owner I wouldn’t recommend you buying it, rather invest the money and hire people who already know how to do all of it.

        Thousands of people have taken it and the last time I heard Marie talking about it she said she has sold over $40 million worth of coaching packages/courses, etc.

        SO why should you care!? Well having followed Marie for the last 6 years, I’ve noticed quite a few things that she does SO RIGHT and has lead to her success and it’s also these very things that she does so RIGHT that I see other business owners do wrong. 

        Now it’s important to note that there is a lot of things that she’s done right (and we also have to remember that there was also a little bit of being at the right place at the right time with the right idea involved.)

        But today I’m going to specifically focus on THREE things that she’s done that will greatly help you in your business too.

        1: Leveraging Her Network

        From interviewing big names like Tony Robbins, Mama Gina, and Brene Brown to using her clients to spread the word about her programs.

        Marie Forleo has used the living daylights out of her network which has helped her to build her empire.

        I often see business owners overlook their own network and refraining from incentivizing their clients to help them spread the word about their business. 

        Marie Forleo understands the power of word-of-mouth, and although it seems like all of this is happening online when you break it down, it really is just a very good referral system.

        She has an affiliate program where affiliates can earn money for referring others.

        Ways that you can adapt this for your business: 

        Instead of money – send thank you cards, or a thank you gift. 

        And when was the last time you went through your connections and took a look at who they knew and who were in their networks?

        Go ahead and get on it and ask these people for their help – and remember to reward them with a thank you gift too!

        2: Being Consistent

        Another one of Marie’s qualities is her ability to be consistent. I’ve personally been at an event where we hammered this one home.

        She famously said if you don’t hear from her via her newsletter on a Tuesday to assume that she’s dead!

        Being consistent helps you in business in a variety of ways:

        1 – It builds trust with your customers, knowing that they can rely on you.

        Trust is probably the MOST important component to build a successful business.

        2 – Consistency also builds momentum.

        Since 2011 (I believe that was the year that she started B-school and by the way in case you think she was an overnight success  – she started her coaching business on the side in 1999, which makes her an overnight success 10 years in the making.)

        And since then she has showed up every single year building and building and building on the foundation of what she started.

        How to make this work in your business:

        What can you do to help clients trust your business more? Perhaps this means highlighting your experience and credentials more?

        Is what you have in place right now to support clients sustainable and scalable? i.e. – can you keep up the quality and level of service as your clients increase? This is a crucial point to help you to stay consistent.

        It’s also important to note that if you are lacking clarity, have underlying doubts, fears or stories that are not aligned with your goals/success then it will greatly sabotage your ability to be consistent.

        So be sure to reach out to a coach to help you overcome these.

        I personally spend a lot of time helping clients to gain clarity and to overcome these fears and doubts to help them to take consistent action and that’s when they see momentum build and huge growth spurts in their business.

        3: Focus On The Thing

        For the last 9 or 10 years, Marie Forleo has focused on THE THING! And she’s designed everything in her business to feed into that one thing. Everything in her business serves a purpose and leads to her big offering B-school.

        So what she’s done is scale effectively.

        This is where I see a lot of business owners fail. I see a lot of business owners who want to scale add additional revenue streams that don’t fit into their business model. This creates more work and headaches.

        I also see a lot of business owners try to monetize EVERYTHING they do (including their hobbies.) This again leads to chaos, working harder for a low rate of return and ultimately also losing their joy and passion.

        So let’s do a quick breakdown of Marie’s business:

        1 – Marie TV

        This serves as a place for people to get to know Marie, which helps the know, like, and trust factor needed to convert sales AND it also serves as a way to grow her newsletter and gives her audience an easy place to share with their friends (i.e. referring her to others easily.)

        2 – Her Book “Everything is Figureoutable”

        Although I was personally disappointed with the book as I was hoping to get some new insights into Marie the person, again THIS WAS NOT the purpose for writing the book.

        The purpose of this book was to give a wider range of people access to her so they could get to know and like her AND then eventually convert to buy her courses.

        3 – Her courses Copy Cure + How to Start the Right Business

        Both serve as perfect tasters of what you could get from her ultimate big offer B-School.

        So how can you adapt this to your business:

        When you look at all the things your business has to offer, do they all align and fit in?

        Denise Duffield-Thomas has a saying all roads lead to Bootcamp ( which is her big course that she sells.)

        So ask yourself: Do all roads in my business lead to making that sale?

        You don’t have to have a course or be a service-based business to do this.

        What you really want to look at here as that everything in your business is set up to get your customer closer to giving you their money. i.e. making a sale.

        When you bring all three of these steps together, it makes for an incredible business strategy!

        1: Leverage your network and build relationships

        2: Be consistent

        3: Focus on the revenue-producing thing

        Now, I’d love to hear from you.

        When can you call yourself a CEO?

        When can you call yourself a CEO?

        Today’s Savvy Business Show talks about exploring this topic along with why it’s crucial to start thinking like a CEO long before you think you’re ready. 

        Let’s dive in…

        I get this question quite often. Usually when this question gets asked it’s asked from a place of doubt, uncertainty. 

        Traditionally when we think of CEOs we think of big stuffy board rooms and men in suits  – with MBAs, decades of experience and more.

        INTIMIDATING. No wonder so many women I work with feel a little uneasy calling themselves CEOs. 

        Ok so back to the old boys club in suits… no, you don’t have to become one of them at all. 

        And I completely get why it’s so intimidating to call yourself the CEO of your business as well – after all – you may not be running a Fortune 500 company (yet)…

        So how dare you call yourself a CEO  – right? Right? — urm nope. 

        See here’s the deal. In business, there is this definitive point where in order to grow and scale further, you MUST graduate to being the CEO of your company. 

        Before this stage – you can still get away with being the workhorse – have a hand in everything and pretty much run your business the way you did when you started.

        You can be the Chief Everything Officer in this phase.

        And, then there’s that tipping point – where you have to start to work and think completely different in order to kick things up and make a leap to the next level in business. 

        At this phase of business, you have to let go of doing everything, hire the right talent, learn to let go and delegate better, work on your leadership skills and start to do and show up very differently in your business.

        This is what I call the graduation to Chief Executive Officer in your business. 

        And this stage will test you  – this is the part where you have to strive to show up wanting to be a better person than yesterday every day.

        Here you shift from being the workhorse to being the show pony – supporting your staff to execute and achieve the vision that you have for your business. 

        At this level  – you have to shift from always grinding and hustling to working with more ease and joy.

        Reserving your energy so you can expand your business exponentially without burning yourself out. 

        That’s why CEOs do. 

        So the good news is that you never have to call yourself a CEO if you don’t want to BUT you DO however have to start thinking, acting and BEING like a CEO in your business. 

        And this isn’t the easiest of transitions to make. 

        A lot of people have a very hard time letting go of all those to-dos and tasks they did for years – and I get it.

        It’s difficult to trust others who are new to your business to do the job that you can now do in your sleep.

        Hiring the right people and training others can be time-consuming and feel very difficult. 

        That’s why it’s so important to invest in help at this phase of your business.

        Because you’re about to go from working in your business all the time to working ON it a whole lot – which means there is no one around at YOUR EXECUTIVE level in your business who will truly understand or be able to give constructive growth-oriented feedback.

        That’s exactly where one of my Savvy CEO Clients found herself last year before investing to work with me, she says:

        I was sick of overworking and making less money than being alone in private practice so I decided to look into a business coach

        Fast forward 18 months and Courtney went from owning 1 small office with 3 part-time employees to 2 locations with 10 full-time employees.

        And she only works Monday – Thursday and now take Fridays off Guilt-Free. 

        “Working with Hanneke has helped me professionally In so many ways. Most recently, she’s helped me and my executive team clarify our vision and define our roles as well as learn to have difficult conversations so we don’t sweep things under the rug because we “feel bad”.

        She has helped me over the years define what a leader truly is, one that is caring AND has high standards and boundaries.

        Personally, she’s helped me get through so much self-doubt that I didn’t even know I was harboring.” 

        You have to give yourself permission to be the CEO of your business – because if you don’t no one is going to give it to you.

        Showing up as the leader of your company will raise the bar for everyone in your business.

        It will inspire your team to show up committed and motivated. When you stay in the weeds you not only confuse your employees – you frustrate them and you’re denying them to work in their zone of genius too.

        If you’re sick of overworking, hustling and grinding and not reaping the financial benefits for all your hard work it’s time to start working and thinking of yourself as the CEO of your business.

        And, if you find this intimidating or you’re not quite sure where to start – be sure to reach out  – I’ll help you make this transformation to confident CEO, working less and earning more in no time at all!

        Stop making it harder than it has to be – hop on over to the show notes and book a call with me and I’ll answer all your pressing questions and tell you more about the process of going from the workhorse to being the CEO of your company. 

        Remember the CEO doesn’t stand for Chief everything officer! Stop overworking and be the show pony of your business – you deserve it.

        Getting to the next level of your business

        And  — if you’d like to gain clarity on what will get you to the next level in your business and would like to transform to a confident CEO working with more ease.

        Best Business Lessons From 2019

        Best Business Lessons From 2019

        Today’s Savvy Business Show talks about the Best Business Lessons from 2019. We also cover what it takes to lead like a pro and lead with intentions to grow, and having the biggest impact with clarity, accountability, and support, and best business practices.

        2019 was a fun year in business, a few highlights included: hosting the first Savvy Business Retreat in March and again in November.

        Expanding the Savvy Business Community and meeting and working with some phenomenal private coaching clients. And once again a record-breaking revenue year as well.

        And of course, there were some struggles and hard lessons that had to be learned as well.

        Let’s dive in…

        1: Leading with your intention vs fear result in better decisions and profits

        My word for 2019 was trust. And as often as possible when I started to freak out about things, I would lean into trusting myself and the universe.

        Doing this helped me make better business decisions that lead to less scramble and better revenue. 

        2: Clarity leads to ease

        Acting from my intention also helped me to get crystal clear on who I’m here to serve and where I have the biggest impact with clients.

        This clarity has helped me to figure out where to add new team members. And when and will result in some more changes in business in 2020, moving towards better profit margins, and working with even more ease.

        I help my clients with this one a lot. The clearer we can be about our roles in our business and what we are creating, where we have the most impact, the easier it is to plan, act, execute and achieve goals.

        When you have clarity it frees up space to do more with less effort as the clarity informs the best plan.

        3: I’m no longer here to be nice

        So often in an effort to not be seen as mean/unfair or unpopular, we as business owners will bend our rules. Or let something slide that goes against our business mission and values.

        In 2019 I had plenty of those moments where in an effort to not look like a witch. I let things go and those things always came back to haunt me. So in 2020, I’m not here to be “nice”.

        I’m here to lead by example, to have the biggest impact I can possibly have and to be a leader for others.

        Note I’m not saying I’m going to be a mean person. But way too many of us act from a place of not wanting to be seen as mean/unfair/unreasonable. And then we swing the pendulum too far in the opposite direction.

        Where’s the middle ground. And where is this behavior shooting yourself in the foot? Where are you bending backward (and losing money) because of it?

        4: What got you here won’t get you there

        I say this to my clients often — and in 2019 I very much had to take a big dose of my own advice.

        As I mentioned it was a big year of testing and getting clear on where the future of my business is headed. And the path forward looks way different than the path here (or how I imagined the path forward will look.)

        5:  Accountability and Support is a must

        When I invest in people to help keep me accountable, get clear on things or hire new team members to help me in the areas that are not my strong suits, my business always wins.

        The most important thing needed to grow a business is consistent action and in order to take this consistent action, you need to work through your fears.

        Know your weaknesses, and how they’ll get in the way of what you want — for me, this means investing in coaches, retreats and or masterminds.

        Having people who can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with me in my business and understand exactly what it means to run a business. Who can I can talk things through, ask for help is priceless. 

        And equally important is having the right team members who are rockstars at what they do to support me in my business. And do all the things that I’m not good at or who can do the things that will free me up to have more impact.

        Those are my five lessons of 2019! Now I’d love to hear some of yours. Either hop on over to the show notes and my blog to let me know or DM me via Instagram.

        Biggest Goal Setting Mistakes You’re Making

        Biggest Goal Setting Mistakes You’re Making

        Today’s Savvy Business Show talks about goal setting mistakes and helping my clients to do things differently that will work towards meeting goals for 2020 with more ease and joy vs doubt and fear.

        It’s the beginning of the year and the world is buzzing with new year’s resolutions and goals.

        And unfortunately, most people will make the mistakes we’ll discuss today and it will result in them losing focus, becoming frustrated and not hitting their goals.

        If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’m all about helping my clients achieve their goals with more joy and ease.

        How do I do this?

        By helping my clients to do things differently than they’ve done it before, by shifting their perspective, exploring new possibilities and more…

        And in today’s episode, we’re going to look as to how you can do this with your Goals for 2020 that will help you to work towards them with more ease and joy vs doubt and fear. 

        So often when asking people to set goals they will find it difficult to speak the goal out loud.

        And when you dig deeper as to why they’re so shy to say it out loud it’s because there are some fear and doubt buried underneath the excitement of their goals. 

        Deep down they doubt that they can accomplish their goal.

        Let’s dive in…

        Which brings us to mistake number one:

        1. Setting goals that you don’t believe you can accomplish

        When setting a goal it’s important you believe that it’s possible for you to accomplish this goal In order to do so you need to address all the underlying fears and doubts.

        Write out all your fears, examine them, do some clearing/tapping or forgiveness/put solutions in place where needed. 

        Come up with a mantra that will solidify your belief in yourself. Remember this has to be something that you genuinely believe already.

        So perhaps instead of saying something like: “I make 10 million in my sleep”

        — which may be difficult for you to believe in this very moment, you can start with:

        “It’s easy for me to make money.”

        Which brings us to the next mistake:

        2. Getting too specific about your goal

        Remember my why smart goals are so dumb episode last year –if you haven’t listened to it yet, do so after you finish here!

        In order to achieve your goal, you have to detach yourself from the outcome.

        I know  – everyone everywhere is telling you to have to be super specific with your goals.

        But in the process of getting so specific we box ourselves in, we close ourselves off to other better possibilities and we start to white-knuckle our goals.

        Which results in an energy shift that comes from a place of lack vs abundance.

        What if you leaned into trust more and became open to all the possibilities and ways you could achieve your goal. 

        In The Illusion of Money, by Kyle Cease – he offers the idea that you set intention vs a goal to help you do this.

        In order to get to the route of your intention: ask yourself why you want to achieve your particular goal?

        Sticking with the revenue goal: Why do you want to earn that much? What’s the goal behind the goal?

        Perhaps it is that you want to experience more freedom?

        So that means your intention is to create more freedom. If you embodied this intention, how would you show up, how would you act?

        Which brings us to our 3rd and final mistake:

        3. Not aligning your habits with your goals:

        People set goals but their habits and action don’t support them achieving that goal. 

        The formula to achieve goals are as follows: 

        What you think + what you say influences your actions, which directly impacts your results.

        SO:

        WHAT YOU THINK + WHAT YOU SAY + ACTIONS = RESULTS

        Part 1 of the equation: 

        WHAT YOU THINK + WHAT YOU SAY: is Mistake Number One people make -setting goals they don’t believe they can achieve.

        This subconsciously shows up as fear/doubt, so the individual may not even be aware of their limiting belief.

        Part 2 of the equation HOW YOU TAKE ACTION

        When we act from our intention vs the result/goal we have — in other words if we detach from the outcome,  it’s easier to figure out what action to take.

        Because in every second you can ask yourself: my intention is freedom — what will create more freedom here, what actions do I have to take to create more freedom if I showed up in with the intention of freedom what are my next steps?

        This opens you up to more possibilities and more freedom.

        Part 3 of the equation = RESULT

        When you align your thoughts, words, and actions with your intention you’re bound to change your outcome significantly. 

        By focusing on the process, you’ll open yourself up to so many more possibilities.

        And finally: when you look at what you want to accomplish this year — who would you have to become to accomplish that goal?

        I.e. If you’ve already achieved those goals: Who would you be, what would you say, how would you take action. 

        This is often referred to in the self-development world as your Future Self. 

        When we focus on who we will become in pursuit of our dreams it allows us to enjoy the journey more, it allows us to appreciate ourselves and what we’re creating more.

        And when we enjoy the journey and have more self-love, we can create a way with more ease and joy. And that’s when the magic happens.

        Now I’d love to hear from you: what is your biggest takeaway from today’s episode?

        What is one thought/action you’ll adjust to achieve your goal or who do you want to become to become this year?

        The five signs that indicate a mastermind is what you need to up-level your business:

        So masterminds huh? They sound cool and exciting but when do you know that you’re ready to join one?

        I’ve been running masterminds since 2015, and I’m personally in one for my business growth too. I’ve experienced the benefits, and exponential business growth first hand and my clients’ results include launching new side-hustles, online programs, adding new clients, new revenue streams, and hitting their income goals in half the time they anticipated.

        Bottom line: masterminds are the BOMB when it comes to growing your business fast! (if you ask me :))

        In this episode, I’m sharing how to identify when and if you need a mastermind. Ready? Let’s jump right in.

        The five signs that indicate a mastermind is what you need to up-level in your business:

        1. You’re gearing up for massive growth in your business


        You’re implementing all sorts of new strategies, expanding your team and planning significant expansion. It’s new territory; you don’t have many or maybe ANY business friends who are at this level of business. And you’re facing all sorts of new challenges. Having support and accountability from like-minded people get where you’re at or are a little further along in their business would massively help you figure out the right path to hit your goal faster.

        2. You’re doubting whether you’re prioritizing the right stuff to grow your business


        There are all sorts of roads that may lead to success… or dare we even say it: failure. Which one of the options at hand is the right option to achieve your business success, faster and smarter? The collective intelligence and experience of a curated mastermind group helps you brainstorm the best business strategies and gives you hardcore advice to work smarter while speeding up your results.

        3. You’re facing new challenges in your business


        Congratulations you did it, you officially grew to a new level in your business! But now you’ve got some new hurdles, like who to hire first, or perhaps you have to restructure your team and fire some people. There are lots of growing pains that come with business growth, and when you have a mastermind group who has your back, you’ll be able to overcome all these problems with more ease and confidence.

        4. You’re feeling isolated and lonely


        You have all these fantastic ideas, and amazing things are happening in your business, but there’s no one who you can call to bounce ideas off of or who can genuinely rejoice in your success and understand your entrepreneurial journey. Mastermind buddies are THE best people to celebrate, be vulnerable with or bounce ideas off of because they get you! They know you inside out because they live a parallel life to you in their business.

        5. You’re struggling to focus and stay grounded on your way to your goals


        Most entrepreneurs have shiny object syndrome – which is a beautiful gift when it comes to creating new and exciting programs and products, but it seriously blows and throws you off track when you’re trying to stay focussed and finish a project. Mastermind friends keep you accountable, they hold you to your mission and your ultimate goal and can call you out on your BS when you go astray.

        {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.

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #56: Why working harder won’t make you more successful

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #56: Why working harder won’t make you more successful

        Today, on the Savvy Business Show I’m calling BS on how working hard is the only way to success. 

        Not too long ago I did a social media declutter so that I could make room for what I am cultivating for the next level of my business. During this time I stumbled on several quotes but one really stood out to me.

        I call BS on this quote someone shared “I find that the harder I work the more luck I seem to have” 

        Let’s get something straight – harder doesn’t mean better, it doesn’t mean more success, and it doesn’t mean more luck.

        Harder means done with a great deal of force. You are expanding your energy and as a business owner its super important to manage   your energy. 

        When you are listening to all the work harder advice out there you are going to run out of energy. And if you keep pushing you will eventually burn out. Thats the reality. I’ve been there and done that. 

        The phrase “you must work hard” is a limiting belief formed by either the outside telling us that success only comes from blood, sweat and tears or the internal thoughts of I’m not enough or I don’t deserve it. 

        Success is 80 percent psychological and 20 percent strategic

        Tony Robbins

        It requires a mindset plus the task we spend our time on. You need to know how you work best. You need to know your personality. The more you work on this part the easier it becomes to create success with less effort. 

        Your task will align with your strengths and what you are good at. You won’t be working harder but working with more inspiration. Creating more energetic flow and once this is mastered the business piece will natural fall into place. 

        Then it becomes about consistency. Consistently take action and you will see the results roll in and it will seem lucky. 

        There is no magic formula for success just simple savvy business.

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #55: Own Your Biological Clock & Own Your Future

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #55: Own Your Biological Clock & Own Your Future

        Today on the Savvy Business Show we talk with Radell Peischler of Fertility Boss.

        Radell shares her story and how she’s is speaking knowledge to women who aren’t aware of their options.

        Life happens fast and lots of factors play a role in why we are having kids later in life. Such as…

        • More debt when you leave college
        • More options available
        • Traveling more
        • Multiple careers

        As an entreprenuer I hear a lot of entrepreneurs are saying “I’m not there yet, I don’t have the  income level so I’m going to wait.”

        Women are getting educated and they are smart and know what they want. So they are establishing something in their lives that is not a family yet but they want one later.

        However, while you wait there are options that you can ask your OBGYN about. Fertility declines as you get older. But there are resources available that can let you know your ovarian fertility reserve.

        You’ll have to advocate for yourself because everyone is busy and its not always a subject that even doctors what to talk with you about. Don’t be afraid to ask.

        There is a test available that is a series of blood work to analyze your hormones along with a vaginal ultrasound and based on your results identify the next steps available for you. 

        Don’t be afraid to change doctors and find one in your corner.

        Egg Freezing

        Let’s dive into a little more about egg freezing.

        While Radelle agrees that it is a great option available for women its not for everyone. Some things to consider if it’s a good fit for you. 

        • Making sure your doctor has been practicing for a long time and is board certified. 
        • Ovarian test to make sure you meet the requirements first
        • Birth control to sync your cycle 
        • A really good clinic will want to see you in the beginning daily. 

        Note: Your body releases one egg per month – by using egg freezing you are using certain medicines to enhance your body to release more eggs per month.

        You can absolutely do your normal day through the process until egg retrieval day. Radell sugget to plan that day off and rest.

        The amount of time your eggs can remain frozen will vary based on the age you freeze your eggs and your health. Listen to what your doctor recommends.

        Empower yourself with knowledge and ask questions.

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #54: Why your business strategy isn’t working

        Why your business strategy isn't working

        You’ve tried it all and somehow it is still not working. Today on the savvy business show I am sharing three (3) things you must implement when you’ve tried it all and you aren’t getting the results you want in your business. 

        You may be feeling super frustrated because you’ve tried everything and you are not alone. We’ve all been there where we’ve tried all the strategies the guru’s told us to do.

        Then there was some new must-try strategy and then another one. So we try everything the experts say and we still don’t have the results we want. 

        All you need is a few tweaks. 

        Let’s talk a little more about 3 missing ingredients when you’ve tried all the things and things aren’t working: 

        Measuring Results

        Are you measuring what is working and what is not? Are you paying close attention to everything?

        You need to gain clarity, focus in order to take inspired action and make those small adjustments that will skyrocket your success.

        Consistency

        In order to see the desired results, you have to be consistent. You need to do things that produce revenue. Giving it a minimum of 60 to 90 days of measuring. Consistency is key in an ever-changing world of strategies. 

        • Building relationships, community, tribe aka customer service
        • Quality/good product and service that solves a problem for a client
        • Know your core money-making activities and do them consistently

        Mindset

        If you’ve tried all of the strategies and you are being consistent then getting in the right mindset is going to be a major factor in your success.

        When you are in the right mindset you’ll be able to identify what is the right strategy for you and your business. Making decisions based on confidence level versus fear. You’ll be less reactive and be able to come up with key solutions to challenges.

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #53: Five lessons from running a startup

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #53: Five lessons from running a startup


        Today on the Savvy Business Show I have the pleasure of talking with Savvy Business Mastermind member Claire Ransom of Lazy Flora. Lazy Flora is the Hello Fresh of Plants.

        We talk about the five lessons learned from running a start-up from punching down the barriers of your expectations to simply getting started.

        Remember to leave a review to WIN a private coaching session or a “pick my brain” session with me!

        Lesson 1

        Just do it. Start by taking tiny steps to move forward and investing in yourself. Consistent action is where you are going to see the results.

        We overestimate what we can accomplish in a year and underestimate what we can accomplish in three.

        This is true for whatever time frame you want to give it. We overestimate what we can accomplish in a week and underestimate what we can accomplish in a month.

        Lesson 2

        Trusting your own intuition. You are capable of doing so much more. There is a lot of noise out there and you need to stop listening to everyone’s talk that doesn’t know you or your business personally or intimately.

        You are an expert in your business and no ones know it better than you.

        Lesson 3

        Prioritize exercise. You have to start looking at yourself like an athlete – high-performance mode. Exercise, nutrition and sleep are at the top of this list.

        Making these three things a priority will help you to be more clear in your thinking. Allowing you to make better decisions in your business and feel more at peace with yourself.

        Lesson 4

        Hiring a team. Trust your instinct about hiring a team. You have to have a connection with the people you hire. You have to believe that they will bring you up.

        Find a team with a diverse skill set to help you. Allow your team to manage up. What does that mean? It means that you allow them to manage you letting you know what they think you can do better or improve on.

        Lesson 5

        Everything takes longer than you expect from launch to marketing plans. At the start of a business, there is such a steep learning curve. You’ll see this curve each time you add something new and it takes a little bit longer.

        The Art of Saying ‘NO’

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #52: Why you’re Failing to Scale

        {Podcast} Savvy Business Show #52: Why you’re Failing to Scale

        Today, on the Savvy Business Show Podcast we talk about 4 Reasons business owners fail to scale. Inspired by an article from Harvard Business Review called Why Entrepreneurs Don’t Scale. Let’s dive in.

        Loyalty to Comrades 

        Loyal CEO’s can be your best friends but failing to see team members weaknesses can cause problems for your company. You can work and overcome these obstacles.

        When you expand beyond the starter phase of your business and realize the old way of doing things will no longer work. You have to do things differently shifting your perspective and mindset in order to grow your business to the next level.

        Shifting from the workhorse that does it all to be the executive of their business. This is a big shift in separating the entrepreneur from the business and to start seeing the business as an entity of themselves.

        Your business isn’t your baby!

        Once you step into this separation it allows you to see your business more objectively. To see what your business needs versus what you need. When these two are intertwined it is easy for the ego to get in the way and problems in our business start to happen. 

        When you see yourself as a company of one, you have a hard time having difficult conversations or letting people go. 

        Task Orientation 

        Next, let’s talk about being oriented.

        Are you too focused on the things that are right in front of you or the long term strategy of your business?

        If you are focused on the task in front of you, you may find yourself at the employee level. You are able to execute what is in front of you which is probably what helped you to start your own business.

        However, as your business grows you have to shift focus more on strategic possibilities. Leaders know that to scale your business you have to focus on less on what is key for your business – the zone of genius.

        Single – Mindedness 

        Single-mindedness or being laser-focused on a particular thing will hinder your business. Usually, you will see this as people not letting go and letting the people they have hired to do their jobs.

        As the boss, you are micro-managing and over-checking everything. You still holding to the fact that you have to do it all yourself and not trusting yourself to be a savvy business owner. Leaving your team and yourself frustrated. This means task don’t get delegated properly and you aren’t focusing on our zone of genius. 

        Working in Isolation

        Finally, working in insolation. When you first start out you are doing all the work because maybe you can’t afford to hire help. Then your business starts to grow and you bring on more people.

        Now, once you start to bring on more people it’s important to let people in on your processes. This requires effective communication, delegation, and the ability to create buy-in from others.

        You as the business have to learn to be vulnerable, motivate and lead your team. It comes increasingly important to know your companies values, mission, and vision for the future. So you can hire a leadership team and train them properly. 

        If you haven’t defined your role and the role of the business and separated the two from each other you will fall into the loyalty trap and isolate yourself.

        Why? Because you won’t have the right team around you. Leading to finding yourself stuck in the day to day task forgetting to focus on growth strategy. Driving your back into single-mindedness, the idea that things will all go to hell in a handbasket if you aren’t there to save the day. 

        Clearly taking action on these steps will in return grow your business. Find a coach or mastermind group to help you step into the next level and become the Savvy CEO of your business.
