The 4 Essential Steps To Creating The Business & Live You Love

As a solopreneur you’ve probably learned the hard way that having work you love AND a life you love is quite the magic trick (a.k.a. impossible dream).

To help you get there, here’s an interview with awesome success coach Shannon James (I just completed her ‘Success With Benefits’ program this spring).

Shannon can not only help you achieve business success but ensure that you enjoy more of the benefits your success – whether that be quality time with your loved ones, taking better care of your own health or achieving deeper, more meaningful experiences – at work and at home.

If you’re feeling like your work is your passion and always on your mind – yet too often at the neglect of other important aspects of your life, I hope you will give yourself the time to give this video interview a watch.

We cover:

  • the 4 essential ingredients to having work/life that you love
  • practical takeaways from my own experience in going through Shannon’s Success With Benefits program
  • how to assess what’s the biggest game-changer for you right now

Getting clear on what your game-changer is right now, which we’ll walk through in the video, is the most important first step to enjoying more of the benefits of your success, however you define those: It may be spending quality time with your children, creating cherished memories with your partner, spouse and friends, taking better care of your own health or simply enjoying yourself more at work and at home.

What’s Your 3 Word Rebellion? Interview with Michelle Mazur

Ever notice how the best thought leaders have three words that sum up their message? And that major movements have the same pattern? Think, Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why” or Mel Robbins’ “5 Second Rule.” My guest this week on Amplify Your Awesome noticed this pattern which inspired her new project: The 3 Word Rebellion (with the goal of launching a million rebellions!).

Dr. Michelle Mazur is an awesome speaker coach (I’m one of her students) who believes that just spreading ideas (think TED talks) even if they’re big ideas, isn’t enough. (When was the last time you watched a TED talk that actually moved you to take action?)

A 3 Word Rebellion is the ultimate hook. It’s what you want to be known for. It attracts the right crowd and moves them not to just say “Yes” but “Hell Yes!”

Increase Your Magnetic Presence with Rachael Jayne Groover

I’m super excited about this interview with Rachael Jayne Groover where we talked about how to develop a magnetic presence on video including:

– How to get out of your head bubble and create a magnetic presence on video
– How you can use your voice for credibility and power
– How to get and KEEP the attention of your audience
– How you can be relaxed and activated and energized

Special gift: Rachel Jayne is offering 10 scholarships to her Awakening event in Denver this September!

Rachael Jayne Groover is the author of “Devine Breadcrumbs” and “Powerful and Feminine: How to Increase your Magnetic Presence and Attract the Attention You Want.”

As an accomplished singer and songwriter from Australia, Rachael Jayne was most fascinated with why some performers had an incredible stage presence, while others, who might have been technically brilliant, did not.

She realized that anyone could learn the key factors that create “stage presence” in a performer and use them to stand out, be seen, and inspire others in any situation.

Overcoming stage-fright and an enormous fear of rejection, she became an award-winning vocalist and finished her full-time singing career performing to a live audience of 40,000 people, before making the leap to live in the USA and become an inspirational speaker and personal development trainer.

She now travels the world teaching women (and a few brave men) how to increase their personal presence, their vocal power and their ability to strategically earn their potential in business.
