Welcome in the New Year {Podcast}

Welcome in the New Year

Play

Do you take the time to welcome in the New Year (and review last year)? Over the years of leading Chart Your Stars inside the Starship, I've noticed that this is one of the most impactful, inspiring-towards-action steps a business explorer can do. The process of getting clear about your Big Picture, how you want to feel, and everything in between is clarifying and can continue to provide a light in the confusing times over the coming year.

In this episode I share ideas for how you can plan your year and how to use it as the year progresses.

Why you’re not making more sales

Why you're not making more sales

Play

Everyone wants to know: Why aren't I making more sales? 

The answer is that you're making a mistake that most small businesses make, and it's exhausting you, without being effective.
Whether the problem is that you're not selling anything, or that you're not selling more, or that your newest project just bombed, the underlying problem is usually the same. Today we're going to talk about what the underlying problem is, and how to fix it.

We'll discuss:

  • Why you're not making any sales
  • The easy change you can make
  • The foundations you need in place

Fighting Self Doubt {Podcast}

Fighting Self Doubt

Play

 

Self doubt. Everyone deals with it from time to time. It can be niggling and annoying or paralyzing and dangerous. It keeps you from trying new things, from working just a bit harder, from reaching just a bit farther. It may keep you from starting, or growing, or really believing that you can take on a big new project.

In today's episode, we'll discuss:

  • Why it's so convincing.
  • How to defeat the self-doubt NOW.
  • How to deal with it long-term.

Networking for Introverts

Networking for Introverts

Play

Connecting with others, from colleagues to gatekeepers to your buyers, is at the foundation of a successful business. In our internet-based businesses, it's increasingly easy to connect shallowly – liking a post, favoriting a tweet, following or friending – but you gotta get deeper than that, to build real working relationships. I write and speak a lot about building those relationships with your buyers, but how do you connect in a meaningful way with your colleagues and gatekeepers (editors, publishers, etc)?  Especially if you're an introvert?

In this episode we'll talk about: 

  • How to reach out in a non-icky way to those you want to connect with
  • How to follow up without feeling like a loser
  • How to fit this connection into your week so it doesn't suck up all your energy
