Show Notes

One of the toughest parts of being self employed is actually getting clients, right? Whether we go to mixers, conferences, lunches, dinners, or use video to market ourselves and our services, we’re putting ourselves out there and can feel really exposed when we’re doing all that. And of course that’s because are to a large degree. That’s how humans operate.. we look, listen, and react.

This fact can make us so nervous it can actively hold us back. Or we can embrace it. Develop our voice and point of view, leverage that, and attract the clients that resonate with our message so we’re attracting people who will get the most out of working with us and who we would most enjoy working with.

That’s all easier said than done sometimes.

That’s why I wanted to have Valerie Sokolosky on the show.

Personal branding and leadership presence expert Valerie SokoloskyValerie is a former broadcaster, voice over artist, and professional speaker who moved into a career in corporate training and executive coaching. She’s been running her successful Dallas, TX based firm Valerie and Company for more than 30 years.

Valerie is the author of 8 leadership books and was featured in The Wall Street Journal for having one of the nation’s first executive coaching practices.

As an ICF accredited coach she inspires leaders to develop a strong personal brand that differentiates them in the marketplace and creates greater success for themselves and their organizations.

When the field of executive presence was forming, Valerie was there helping forge the industry. Then when personal branding emerged she was there to merge the two specialities.

Today’s Valerie’s focus is well defined. Guiding leaders and developing high performing teams; increasing business development and creating a culture of superior employee engagement.

So listen in as Valerie shares her journey as well as she explains:

  • What a personal brand is and why it’s as important as ever to uncover, embrace, and communicate yours
  • Why we need outside help in recognizing our greatest gifts as well as seeing our blindspots
  • What’s meant by the concept of executive presence and why it really is important to us in our careers as solo professionals
  • We’ll also share some suggestions for success at mixers and events. These are going to be especially good ideas for my fellow introverts.
  • We’ll also share some suggestions on what not to do and behaviors to avoid. You don’t want to become what Valerie calls a WAM-er.

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share you cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.

Show Notes

I’ve talked before about how we corporate escapees start our service-based businesses as consultants, coaches, or healers because we:

  • Have skills and talents we love to use that we want to share with the world
  • Figured out the solution to a problem and want to share that solution with others who need it
  • Feel called to a mission and want to dedicate our lives to making a difference

So we’re out on our own and we suddenly come face to face with our own crap.

We discover we hate selling and aren’t too crazy about marketing either.

We struggle to talk about ourselves and the value we bring to others.

And we can really struggle with money issues.

We undercharge.

We don’t stay focused on the numbers and key performance indicators for running a profitable business.

I say “we” because this has certainly been true for me.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

It’s time to embrace our power…and that starts with understanding everything involved with pricing for profitability.

My guest today is Justin Krane. He’s a certified financial planner and money strategist for entrepreneurs.

Justin is known for his savvy, holistic approach to financial planning and he advises his clients on how to unite their money with their lives and businesses. And he does it using a unique system developed from his studies of financial psychology.

He educates and supports his clients in a non-judgemental way while helping them understand the financial side of running their businesses and making a profit.

Listen in as Justin explains:

  • Why it’s critical to price for value and to create a premium pricing strategy
  • The impact that self-confidence and self-worth have on our pricing strategy
  • Why we’ve got to get to 6-figures as fast as possible
  • Common mistakes made with pricing our offerings that limit our profitability and can create stress
  • And ROL versus ROI

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.

Terms That Might Be New to You:

Key Performance Indicators (KPI) – A set of data points that are measured and used to make decisions and judge how well the business is doing.

Return on Investment (ROI) — A performance measurement that compares the cost and the revenue generated as a result of that cost.

Show Notes

Solo professionals often start a business because we’ve had some life changing experience, we’ve had a revelation, or we’ve overcome a challenge and we want to or feel called to help others who are where we used to be.

But how do you do that?

We often just dive in and are forced to figure it out as we go.

I’m hoping to shorten the learning curve for you and all of us who dream of helping others.

So this episode is one in what I think of as an informal series where I may talk to an entrepreneur about their particular specialty but also about how they built their business.

You’re going to meet Ellie Savoy who is a best-selling author and health coach. She is going to share her thoughts on the importance of maintaining good health for us entrepreneurs but we’re also going to talk a little about how she got started and things she did that gave her business a boost.

Ellie works in a variety of ways with businesses and nonprofits. She conducts everything from one-on-one coaching programs to large group programs, virtual training, webinars, and live events to help companies establish their wellness vision and strategy. She makes it fun and engaging…not some dull lecture. Participants walk away with at least three things from each session they can easily and immediately implement to start feeling better quickly.

At the end of this episode I’m going to share some additional thoughts about how you can make your mess your message.

So listen in as Ellie shares:

  • The health problem that caused her to face the need to make changes around her own health
  • The importance of good health for every entrepreneur
  • Things Ellie did to get her business to be successful and what she’d do differently today
  • Things to be cautious about as you work to build a business a service focused business

And as always, listen all the way to the end where I’ll share some of my own insight, tips, and things I know now that I wish I’d known then.

Show Notes

One of the things many solo professionals deal with is low self worth and self-esteem and often we suffer without fully realizing it.

We’re pretty confident and we may have even been courageous at times in our former corporate or organizational lives.

But out on our own where we can feel exposed and we may struggle with issues like imposter syndrome and what my friend Sandi Massori calls “who-am-I-itis” this can prove debilitating, disempowering, and ultimately can keep us from the success we dream of and deserve.

I’ve had clients who were held back by this, as well as colleagues, and friends. I knew this was going to be an ongoing issue for me to address on the show because I think dealing with this takes courage and once you HAVE dealt with it you’ll find yourself bravely taking the steps you need to take to position and presell yourself so you can profit from your expertise.

And that’s why I’m excited to bring you today’s guest.

Coach Nat Couropmitree in a basecall cap and sunglasses smilingNat Couropmitree (pronounced ca ROPE my THREE) is a coach who helps entrepreneurs, artists, consultants, and coaches to stand up for their uniqueness, align their soul and work to bring them freedom, joy, and fulfillment.

Nat calls that living magnificently and he helps clients to embrace and bring out their bold magnificence which is also the name of his podcast and website.

Listen in as Nat explains:

  • What exactly is bold magnificence and why it’s the essence of who we are
  • How to overcome feelings of self-loathing and unworthiness
  • How to embrace our magnificence without going over to the dark side and becoming a jerk
  • Dealing with the inner critic who seems determined to keep you feeling and playing small
  • What it means to live a vision of magnificence

As always listen all the way end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.

SHOW NOTES

Like you. my life is crazy busy. I try to fit in time for self care and I’m always on the look out for simple ways to help me manage myself better so I can continue to excel in work and life.

And it seems that when you start thinking about something you suddenly notice it more and more. Like when you decide to buy a new car and suddenly you see that car you want everywhere.

The brain has a specific thing to focus on and it starts focusing.
That’s what’s been happening with me and the topic of meditation.

I first started investigating meditation when I was in a particularly stressful point in my life. My husband and I lived 500 miles apart. I was in full blown recovery dealing with issues as an adult survivor of abuse. And we had family drama going on at the same time.

I had heard that meditation could do great things and that people in all professions used it and believed it made a huge difference for them.

So I tried it.

I got nothing from it.

But like I said as I started to think about it and read more about it I thought maybe it’s time to investigate this again and I thought I’d go to an expert.

And I figured you might be interested in it too so I invited back Brodie Welch for another interview and I was thrilled when she said yes.

Brodie is a licensed acupuncturist, board-certified herbalist, Chinese Medicine expert and self-care strategist. She’s the founder of Life in Balance Acupuncture in Corvallis, Oregon where she has been treating patients since 2003.

In addition to her clinical practice, Brodie shares her expertise to help caring, conscious women take care of themselves through innovative learn-from-anywhere courses and coaching programs on stress management, digestive health, the body-mind connection, moving meditation, and Chinese medicine. She’s the creator and host of the podcast, A Healthy Curiosity. The show explores what it takes to be well in a busy world.

Listen in as Brodie explains:

  • What mediation is
  • Different styles of meditation
  • The benefits of mediation
  • Tips for getting started

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your reflection exercise and action step for this episode.

Welcome to the Courageous Entrepreneur Show. The show shares information and inspiration to help you break free from self-doubt, limiting beliefs, and disempowering patterns and break through to create the thriving, successful business you dream of and deserve.

The show features interviews with entrepreneurs who share their stories of overcoming amazing challenges to achieve success on their terms and experts who share practical information to help you move forward with courage, confidence, and clarity.

Show Notes

Those of us who fall into one of the demographic cohorts referred to as Baby Boomer, Generation Jones, or Generation X were raised to believe that the path to security, financial stability, and success was to go the traditional route of college, major in a degree that was useful, and then get a job, put your nose to the grind stone and maybe grab a corner office some day or at least a nice middle management role.

But that path ISN’T the sure route to stability and security that it once was and degree areas that were believed to be recession proof have proven themselves not to be so.

Jason Alba founded JibberJobber.com as a result of his own 2006 job search. It’s a tool to help job seekers manage the search for employment; but it’s also a great tool for solo professionals to use to manage their contacts and connections.

Jason is the best selling author of I’m on Linkedin Now What which is in its 4th edition and I consider it a classic. He’s also the author of 51 Alternatives to a Real Job. His undergrad degree is in Computer Information Systems and he has an MBA in IT.

Listen in as Jason and I discuss:

  • How he went from applicant to entrepreneur and what his business has in common with many you’ll see on the hit show Shark Tank
  • The mental health challenge job applicants can all too easily share with entrepreneurs
  • The challenges Jason had in coming up with a price for Jibber Jobber and the key thing to remember about pricing and business in general
  • Why pricing your service is the hardest thing for independent professionals to do and why undercharging is so prevalent and why it has to stop
  • What your offering should have in common with toothpaste and toilet paper
  • And what he’d do differently if he was starting all over

As always watch all the way to the end and I’ll share your reflection exercise and action step for this episode.

If you ever get caught up in the “I can’t” syndrome or “I don’t know how” or “I don’t know enough” or “I’m not good enough” mantras that can run through our heads then you want to make sure you listen to today’s episode because today’s guest shows the only thing stopping us from creating a wildly profitable life-style based business is that lump of grey matter inside our heads.

Jessica Yarbrough is a business coach for high – achieving women who want to break out of corporate life and quickly build a six-figure business. She’s a former corporate executive who followed her heart and ended up having to move back in with her parents as she rebuilt her life and career.

Listen in as Jessica shares:

  • How she went from a passion-centered profession to unemployed, living with her parents and collecting food stamps to feed her baby daughter. And how she began to rise up to create the thriving coaching practice she has today and do it in just 18 months.
  • How she dealt with the voice inside her that told her to go get a job as well as the voice of her parents telling her to get one.
  • The biggest blocks and mistakes that women have and make that hold us back from achieving what we really want.
  • And some great tips to begin to move forward to create the life and business of your dreams.

Show Notes

When I was in junior high and high school I dreamed of moving to Colorado. I was a huge John Denver fan and listening to that music and learning about him I was drawn to Colorado for its beauty. I also loved the idea of escaping from my mother who abused me emotionally and psychologically.

I use to imagine how fabulous it would be to start over in a place where – to play on that line from the TV show Cheers’ theme song — nobody knows your name.

So when I met today’s guest who didn’t just escape the way I dreamed of but she went to another country, I knew I had to learn more about her and have her on the show.
