In episode 412, Megan chats to Kristin Weeks about how to set healthy habits that help us push through hard times and grow our businesses in the long-run. Kristin started her blog 3 years ago with the passion to teach others how to cook more homemade meals, bake with sourdough, and how to start a backyard garden to grow fresh produce. Since then, Kristin's journey has had a lot of ups and downs. A year ago she decided to take her blog and business seriously and that had a lot to do with habits, routines, and mindset. By working on herself first, she found she was able to focus. The hard work turned her hobby into a viable business, going from a few thousand sessions a month to qualifying for Mediavine within a year. In this episode, you'll learn how to identify areas in your life you'd like to improve, setting positive, lasting habits that will help you achieve your goals. - Do you feel ready to put everything you have into your blog? - Which areas of your life would you like to improve? - Your strengths are just as important as your weaknesses. - How important is your morning routine? - Have you incorporated fitness into your routine? - Tailor each morning to what you need in the day. - Habits that you enjoy are easier to keep. - Focus on the result in order to love the process. - Why is it important to remember the milestones we achieve along the way?

[17:37] How Allie came to realize that she wanted to “build something” as a founder.[29:41] Personal struggles with her health that gave her the idea for Veracity.[32:13] Some of the holistic wellness products and services that Veracity offers.[39:10] The highs and lows of launching a business and raising capital![45:09] Exciting innovations that you can expect from Veracity in the future.To Find Out More:VeracityAllie Egan on LinkedInAllie Egan on InstagramLee Greene on LinkedInStairway to CEOStairway to CEO on InstagramAWESOME CX by TranscomQuotes:“I wanted to work. I wanted to make my own money. I wanted to have that independence [from very early on].” — Allie Egan [0:07:03]“That [childhood health scare] experience has taught me how so many people think about their health. Instead of being proactive and [thinking] ‘What could be going on in my body? How can I make it better?', how they think about optimal health is clouded in fear.” — Allie Egan [0:11:20]“I feel fortunate that I ended up getting interviews at [L Catterton], which is 100% exclusively focused on consumer retail. I didn't know if I'd love [investment banking], but what I ended up loving was the consumer retail world.” — Allie Egan [0:15:09]“Like a lot of folks, I had been on this path of ‘This is the paved path. Keep going that way.' [I liked what I was doing], but I really started to soul search and think about: what could I be uniquely good at? What could I bring to the table?” — Allie Egan [0:17:53]“Part of what you're doing in building a company is being the conductor of all these things, whether it's ideas, expertise, products, or people.” — Allie Egan [0:18:30]“If you knew everything you were going to learn [as an entrepreneur], you'd probably make different decisions!” — Allie Egan [0:21:59]“Here I was, someone that worked in skincare, was seeking a doctor, and not only did I not have the tools to solve my aesthetic issue, but I also didn't have this important information about my underlying health.” — Allie Egan [0:31:07]“One piece of advice I always like to give to [entrepreneurs] is to try to talk about your ideas early and often, even when they're not perfectly formed.” — Allie Egan [0:39:36]“Raising capital is always hard. It is such a slog. I listened to the founder of Coinbase, [who said]: a successful fundraise is 9 out of 10 people telling you no. And that's in really good times!” — Allie Egan [0:42:03]“Being an entrepreneur is like, every day, either getting an acceptance or a rejection letter from your favorite college, but getting both accepted and rejected multiple times a day, every single day. Dealing with that elation down to the dumps is something that has become the norm.” — Allie Egan [0:43:03]

How do our parcels really look when they hit front porches or receiving docks? It may seem trite on the surface, but we do send our customers perception-building messages, each time we ship a product. Stop and ask yourself one question. How many times have you received a delivery that was poorly prepared for the long, and sometimes rugged haul by carriers? My guess is that around 50% of those improperly packed deliveries contained damaged, or slightly impaired product. We encourage you to spend the next five minutes with us as we wrap a familiar topic with some fresh thinking. Sometimes, the answers are as simple as making sure the bananas are not at the bottom of the grocery bag! Healthy customer experiences start with the perception we wrap around our products.

I wanted something a little bit more exciting.” —[0:21:01]“We've done a disservice over the last however long in empowering people to take control of their careers and their lives.” —[0:30:47]“It's important when you're doing R&D to measure your taste and aroma because a lot of times those can differ.” — [0:41:47]“The world of beverage in particular tends to be quite capital intensive.” —[0:42:21]“If you can operate a business profitability and never have to take a dime in investor capital, I would be the first one to say, ‘Go and do that.' There's a lot less stress to it in many ways and you are really much more in control of your own destiny.” —[0:43:25]“I don't think you can self-finance a beverage company unless you have generational wealth. Maybe you can get off the ground in five, six figures, but to really get it moving, in my experience, it takes seven figures worth of capital.” —[0:43:46]“The biggest thing that I've learned about fundraising [is that] it all comes down to storytelling.” — [0:44:12]“Entrepreneurship isn't for everyone. It is a taxing journey. It is a taxing life. There are a lot of sacrifices that you end up having to make, especially in the earliest days. And I think it is important to demystify that part.” —[0:51:45]“You really have to have a bias towards action. Do something each day, something to push the ball forward. It's not just reading something on the internet or reading a blog about how to start a business. It's going out there and actually starting a business. It's going out there and talking to prospective customers. It's going out there and trying to build something and if and when it fails, finding an entrepreneur who is willing to give you some feedback.” — [0:52:48]

That is where I got the exposure to entrepreneurship.” — [0:12:51]“Eventually I got the itch. I needed to know what it was like working for a startup, even if it meant leaving my career in journalism.” — [0:13:57]“A lot of times, as founders, we end up telling all the best parts about being a founder, and it's only recently that being vulnerable as a founder has been seen as okay. So I heard a lot of the highlights reels, especially as a journalist.” — [0:16:55]“Because the kelp goes through photosynthesis, it's sucking Co2 out of the water as it grows its body mass. So it's really helpful in the context of climate change in combatting acidification.” — [0:19:19] “If you think about growing food, most of the things you and I have on a daily basis require a lot of fresh water and dry land, and kelp requires neither. So it's a really interesting future food in the context of climate change.” — [0:19:33]“I wanted to figure out a way to get more people eating more kelp for so many reasons: health, environment, and supporting our farmers.” — [0:20:22]“I don't think in-person tastings are helpful … If the founder's in the room, throw out the results.” — [0:31:48]“We're turning to equity crowdfunding because I think it's going to be not only helpful for bringing in money, but also really helpful from a marketing perspective.” — [0:35:34]“I think that age-old ‘The dinner table's the greatest piece of connective technology' type of idea is something that really can't be overdone, especially post-COVID.” — [0:37:58]
