Rosemary in her own words, talking about Nellie Bly and her record breaking race around the world:   “Crusading journalist Nellie Bly jumped off the page at me. She appeared as I was researching Victorian women adventurers… and she wouldn't go away.  The more I got to know her, the more I was intrigued by this spirited woman who wouldn't take no for an answer despite living in a world where women ‘knew their place.'     Nellie knew her place alright, smack dab on the front page of the world's newspapers.   She pioneered investigative journalism and paved the way for female reporters like me. Nellie's crusades in print brought about huge reforms in women's asylums, sweatshops and prisons.   2015 marked the 125th anniversary of her best known adventure — circling the globe in a record-breaking 72 days. In celebration of the remarkable Nellie Bly and her amazing journey, I followed in her footsteps around the world.   Now there is a book chronicling our two journeys: Following Nellie Bly: Her Record-Breaking Race Around the World.     My aim is to put Nellie 'back on the map' as an inspiration for adventure, and a reminder that (as Nellie said) "'nothing is impossible if one applies a certain amount of energy in the right direction.”   New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday at 7am UK time.

Dmitriy Pisarev became fascinated with computers and started building his first website at a very young age. He never lost that fascination and eventually got interested in direct response marketing, copywriting, and e-commerce marketing optimization, which is what led to starting his agency Conversion Whisperer. However, with diverse interests and a wide range of skills, Dmitriy has had a hard time choosing a specific niche. In this conversation with Jason they talk about how he changed his perspective on what his agency is, the struggle between niching down or going wide, and how figuring out your 'why 'should always be at the core of everything you do. 3 Golden Nuggets Should you niche? Dmitriy loved to lead his business by looking for new challenges that sound interesting, fun or like a difficult problem. However, he was made aware of a rule in business that you should pick a market, pick a service, and focus on that. “It sounds very easy,” he comments, “but in a way, it's more difficult”. He can see the benefits and downsides of both. On one side, you're forced to do things that are not necessarily repeatable and are not scalable by not picking a market. But on the other, you're able to learn so much in those ventures, like is his case in e-commerce. He has been able to explore that space and is happy with the things he has learned by not niching down. It takes time to figure out a direction for your business. On creating an assembly line. Sometimes agency owners believe that they can teach other people to be the unicorns that they are. “It's like Superman trying to teach people how to fly,” Dmitriy says. People may not have the experience to comprehend what you're expecting. When you have a lot of talents and a lot of experience and can solve any problem better than most people, it may be difficult when you start to create a team and they can't keep up. Dmitriy realized that it's about creating an assembly line, a process that could be followed from start to finish without many tangents in an expected way with everything to set it up. The only way to do that is to niche down. Figure out your 'why.' What is your reason for growing an agency? Do you know what it is? Are you after a specific lifestyle or want to accumulate a certain wealth that you can pass on to your grandchildren? Why are you pushing through? It may sound corny, but not everyone has figured out their motivation. Dmitriy believes this is the core of everything. “Once you figure out your why, revisit it,” he says. “Figure it out. Make sure it's aligned. Talk with your partner about it with your team, your leadership, just so they're all aligned.” If the trophy is worth it, maybe you'll do something that's not as exciting but drives revenue.

And we're going to talk about, should you niche, or should you go wide? He's been debating about this for a long time and it's going to be a really cool episode. He's a lot of fun, very smart. And let's get into the episode. Hey, Dmitriy. Welcome to the show. Dmitriy: [00:00:27] What's going on, Jason? Jason: [00:00:30] Yeah. Tell us who you are and what do you do? Dmitriy: [00:00:33] A marketer aspiring to be a great leader. Run an agency that's focused on traffic, funnels, and email nurture sequences. And, um, we work with cool people. That's the qualifier. Jason: [00:00:47] Well, why do you work with me? Dmitriy: [00:00:52] You're, you're kind of a cool guy sometimes. Jason: [00:00:53] Sometimes. Sometimes. Dmitriy: [00:00:54] Yeah. When the moon aligns. Jason: [00:00:56] That's right. So tell us, how did you get started in this agency life? Why did you start an agency? Dmitriy: [00:01:02] Has anyone ever given you like a linear answer where it's like, oh, I went to school for this. You know, took a course and graduated and… Jason: [00:01:11] No. No one has. Dmitriy: [00:01:12] Yeah, I don't think it works that way. Jason: [00:01:13] Yeah, it doesn't. Dmitriy: [00:01:15] Yeah, man. I, I got fascinated with, uh, computers when I was, when I was nine years old and I built my first website right around then. And just, I discovered the magic of the internet. Just been fascinated with it ever since. Got really big into, uh, or deep into direct response marketing, copywriting. Then e-commerce marketing optimization. I feel like I'm, uh, collecting coins along the path of like different skillsets that will help me in the future. So really the agency was the evolution of not being able to handle the opportunities that were coming in. And for the longest time it's been like, we're an anti-agency agency where, you know, we we're, we're not what other agencies are. We worked with a very limited amount of clients and it's, uh, you know, service, integrity and dedication to delivering on the promises that we set is really important. And then just out of necessity, hiring a team, and then all of a sudden it's like, well, you guys are an agency. So I guess we are. Jason: [00:02:18] Yep. Awesome. Why do you say anti-agency? You know, there's so many people that kind of say that. Like they think agency means something bad. And I get it, cause I'm the same way about coaching. I think coaches are full of shit. I think most coaches are the ones that have never done anything. Why do you think so many people are, they'll be like, oh no, I'm not an agency. I'm like you get paid for services, marketing services…? Dmitriy: [00:02:44] Yeah, man. And like, you've, you've really helped me change the perspective on that just last year. You know, I feel like there's a presupposition to what an agency is, or like a, a misunderstanding. And it's, it's just based off of the bad taste that's been left in people's mouths working with people who are more focused on the recurring revenue than the, the value of the relationship. So, you know, in a weird way, it is kind of like a, a way to reframe the relationship and just help them better understand that things are going to be different around here. And one of our qualifiers is that clients had to have fired at least three agencies before working with us. So they know that it's not a fluke, right? So they know that it wasn't just a, the person didn't get me or they didn't pay attention or they didn't understand. You know, it's like, no, this, this is really difficult, right? Just past having a plan of action and then being able to execute on it. When you are working in an agency environment, having that leadership in place, the processes, the systems to support communication and milestones and targets. If you're looking at it purely from a hitting a certain goal of recurring revenue, it feels like what we're doing is a little different. And part of that is also the complexity of some of the messes that we've gotten ourselves into by really me leading us into the unknown of like the complexities of, hey, this client has this specific need. No one's been able to solve it for them. This sounds interesting. This sounds really fun. It sounds like a difficult problem. I love puzzles. Let's try to figure it out and let's set clear expectations that we haven't done this before. We do understand kind of what it encompasses and how to approach it, and we're able to pivot quickly. So if you're up for it, let's try to figure it out. And that's been, you know, part of the distraction. Jason: [00:04:36] Yeah, totally agree. So let's get into kind of the colossal decision for, you know, niching down or going wide. Walk us through kind of what you've been through, you know, with trying to make this decision. Cause I've, I've witnessed it firsthand. Dmitriy: [00:04:53] Yeah. It's like, uh, we get those flashbacks of PTSD. The war images. Jason: [00:05:00] I'm trying to make you cry. That's my goal. Dmitriy: [00:05:06] Yeah. Yeah, man. So look… There's this concept of building a business and an assembling a business that, um, I've been made aware of just very recently. And I think building an agency is, is… You've told me when we first started working together, like pick a market, pick a service and focus on that, which is really easy to say. And I think there's been a lot of experience and realizations that are, have become so true to you that it's almost like not an option to go down the other path. In a way, this is the difficult. Playing the video game on difficult, because you're, you're forced to do things that are not necessarily repeatable that are not scalable by not picking a market. But you're able to learn so much in those ventures because we serve e-commerce. And e-commerce itself is a very interesting and really broad space. Like we've done supplements, which are some of the most restricted things to, to market online, like the amount of compliance and crossing the T's and dotting the I's required there. So I've enjoyed the learnings that we've been able to achieve by not niching down. And I feel like the realization now, when I'm looking at the efficiency of the team and our… Certain tasks that haven't been done before causing drag and lag on finishing a project that I would have been able to do. So let me back up for a second then helping make sure I don't lose focus. One of the things that I heard is sometimes agency owners believe that they can teach other people to be the unicorns that they are. And effectively it's like Superman teaching people how to fly. They don't have that skill. They don't have that experience. They don't have the, the width of knowledge to be able to comprehend even what you're talking about. So when you have a lot of talents and a lot of experience, and can pretty much solve any problem better than most of the people out there… In my experience, I became fascinated with that, just the, the joy of solving a complicated problem. So in that transition to an agency, I built a team to support me in that. And what I found myself doing is expecting them to be able to read my mind of like, hey, go do this. And it's like, well, I expected them to end up here. And they ended up in a totally different area. So having those kinds of realizations that it's about assembling, creating an assembly line that a process could be followed from start to finish without many tangents in an expected way with everything to set it up, to request everything that's needed to deliver on it. The only way to do that is to niche down. So my realization it's been 13, 14 years of, of doing this formally, is that in order to get to a certain revenue goal while keeping services at a specific level of excellence… You have to standardize, you have to have, create a process that's bulletproof. Kind of like cars' quality assurance. Like when Tesla started out, their QA was kind of shoddy. Cars were coming in, the panels had too many gaps between them or inconsistencies or like Ford's got it down. So… Jason: [00:08:24] Not on the Bronco launch. Dmitriy: [00:08:26] Yeah. I heard about that. And you got, you got one, right? Jason: [00:08:28] No, no, I'm still waiting. I ordered a year ago. Dmitriy: [00:08:32] Okay. Okay. Yeah. I'm waiting on my Tesla. Hopefully I get it before I turned 60. T Cyber Truck. So in a way it's been something that has been kind of like a worm eating away at the fruit. Where I know that I have to do it, but there's also this joy and excitement and fulfillment of solving complicated problems and loving marketing, loving the technology that supports advertising, marketing, and sales that prevents me from, you know, really picking a, a narrow space. So what we've done is we've said we help with demand generation by building conversion driven funnels, which we send highly optimized traffic to. And then the people that don't take that don't convert right away at the ideal level, we have a nurture sequence that joins the prospect exactly where their mind's at in the conversation and making that decision to take that next step forward. So we haven't really niched down, but we are streamlining a type of service and a type of focus. And then it's about qualifying the prospects that we work with and kind of like figuring out our north star as we make our way down there. Jason: [00:09:45] When you're an agency partner with Wix, you unlock an entire digital ecosystem for creating, managing, and growing your agency.

They're backed by the Wix industry-leading security and site performance. You'll also have a dedicated account manager on standby 24/7, so you can reach your goals and start setting new ones. See for yourself, head over to wix.com/partners. And re-imagine what your agency can accomplish. Yeah. And everybody listening, it just takes some time. I mean, it takes some time in order to figure out the direction, who you're going after. And the biggest thing is, is just figuring out who can you help the most and putting criteria around it. And it doesn't have to be a particular industry. You just have to know that particular person and know how to find them as well. And then when they do see you, it's kind of like… I always love to hear people are like, man, I, I started listening to your podcast and it felt like you were tapping into my office. That's kind of by design, right? Like I do have really good technology to tap into your office and here… Dmitriy: [00:11:21] You're a spy. Yeah. Jason: [00:11:22] I'm a spy, yeah. Dmitriy: [00:11:23] Yeah, yeah, yeah. Jason: [00:11:24] Dmitriy sets up the technology and I was the mastermind behind it. Well, this has all been amazing, Dmitriy. And I think this really will help some people out with figuring out like, you know, especially if you've hit a certain ceiling, a lot of times it's just a little adjustments. Sometimes if you haven't picked a niche and really got really clear at your audience, sometimes that allows you to go to the next level. So is there anything I didn't ask you, Dmitriy, that you think would help the audience? Dmitriy: [00:11:56] One of the things that I feel like is a great, great pre-phase to this conversation is what is your reason in growing an agency? You know, and you talk about this a lot too. Are you building a lifestyle? You know, you're trying to get a mega yacht? Are you trying to, you know, make sure that your kids and your grandkids don't want for anything? Are you just trying to get a bunch of skills so that you can buy and flip companies in the future? Like Simon Cenex, why I'm like, man, I, so many people recommended that book to me and I'm like, I've seen the Ted talk. I've seen his YouTube videos. I get it. But it really is at the core of everything. Like, why are you doing this? Why are you pushing through this? Because if the trophy is worth it, maybe you'll do something that's not as exciting but drives revenue creates value for the people that you serve and gives an opportunity to create jobs for people and value and give them a place to learn. So yeah, figure out your why. Jason: [00:12:50] Yeah. I love that. Because you know, there's so many people that are running digital agencies that are kind of just going through the movements and the motions and they don't know where to go. They're just… Dmitriy: [00:13:01] You can hit a million doing that. Jason: [00:13:03] You're not staying consistent. You're going down, so… Dmitriy: [00:13:07] Yeah, man. And look, you can hit a million dollars figuring things out, right? Like that's, that's the thing. It's like a million dollars in revenue is not this next worldly goal. Uh, you can do that stumbling along and figuring things out. But like once you get there, what's going to push you forward to standardize, to create processes, to do all these things that are going to help you scale? So, yeah, to the guys listening, if you have a why, revisit it. Figure it out, you know, make sure it's aligned. Talk with your partner about it with your team, your leadership, just so they're all aligned. Yeah. Jason: [00:13:41] Awesome. Dmitriy: [00:13:41] Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Jason: [00:13:43] What's the website for the agency where people can go and check you guys out? Dmitriy: [00:13:47] So Business Jet Pack is going to be the one that's going to be rebuilt, uh, by Q1 of 2022, depending on when this gets released, it might already be live. But, uh, you can learn more about us at conversionwhisperer.com. Or, you know, really, if you just want to connect, find me on LinkedIn, Dmitriy Pisarev. So, yeah, I think you'll spell my name correctly on the title there… Jason: [00:14:07] But spell it this one more time for the people listening. If they can remember. Dmitriy: [00:14:12] They won't remember. It'll be we, we'll include a link forum. Yeah, Jason: [00:14:18] I know it is difficult to spell, so awesome. Well, Dmitriy… Dmitriy: [00:14:22] Appreciate it, Jason. Jason: [00:14:24] Yeah. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Make sure you guys go check out both websites and really connect with Dmitriy.

Subscription is the business model of the future, it's something more and more businesses are doing and is being leveraged in new and innovative ways. Listen in to this episode for Rob's 7 step process in creating your own subscription service. It's not easy but it is simple, you do not need any money or followers to start this, just choose something you love to talk about then follow these simple steps. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Pick something you love to talk about. Choose content for your subscription based site. There are a few platforms/membership sites for this: Patreon, Onlyfans, Kajabi and Facebook supporters are what Rob would recommend. Exclusive and great information are two key things you can focus on when creating content for subscribers. The way you package your information counts, everyone is valuable, you just need to ‘honour' your niche and then put it out to the world. You need to create 1-2 unique pieces of content a week for your subscribers. E.G one exclusive live, one exclusive mastermind and two other pieces of content. If you are already creating valuable content you can just move some content you are creating to exclusivity for your subscribers. Deciding how much to charge subscribers depends on where you are in your journey, whether you want to create money or focus on scale. You can make a living out of this, there's nothing wrong with money being your motivator. Rob would recommend starting at around $10 per month and then creating ‘tiers' to charge higher for more perks/closer access to you. 90% of people won't give you any money at all, there are a million reasons why. But, as soon as someone has bought with you they become highly engaged and help form and create an incredible community with you at the centre. Make it easy to join your programme. Remove as many friction point as you can, this is one of the most important things to focus on when building a subscription service. You just need three new members a day to your service to create $11,100 a month for a year. One simple way to do this is by following Rob's content-bridge offer.

2 weeks ago, the Suffering Index was calculated for 2022 to see which team needs a World Series title the most. But several listeners pointed out that the Suffering Index is slanted too much to postseason failures and did not take into account losing regular seasons. The new formula is this. (Number of Years Since a Team's Last World Series Title) + (Number of Years Since a Team's Last Pennant ÷ 4) + (Number of Years Since the World Series Title BEFORE the Last one ÷ 8) + (Number of Years Since a Team's Last Post Season Appearance ÷ 16) + (Number of Deciding or One Game Playoffs LOST since last World Series title x 10) – (Number of Deciding or One Game Playoffs WON since last World Series title) + (Number of sub .500 Seasons Since Last World Series Title X2) + (Number of 100 loss Seasons Since Last World Series Title X3) = THE SUFFERING INDEX TOTAL Cleveland fans are suffering a lot... and could potentially end the suffering next year.

Anisah is the founder of the new blog: Outside Our Way which features interviews from other disabled and chronically ill folks, sharing their stories of their outdoor experiences.   Anisah in her own words:   My name is Ani. I have multiple chronic illnesses and I am disabled. That probably brings an image to your mind of what it means to be ‘disabled', But when you look up the definition of ‘disability' you'll find various ways you can categorise it - as well as plenty of opinions about what it means to be disabled.   The UK Equality Act 2010 classifies disability as: “a physical or mental impairment and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.”    The truth is there are so many variations and types of impairments that fit this definition. There are visible physical disabilities, there are hidden physical disabilities, there are learning disabilities, and there are mental health disabilities. The variations and combinations are endless and as a result each person's disability or impairment is unique. How that affects their daily life is completely individual to them.   I have what is called hidden disabilities or invisible illnesses. I'm diagnosed with Lupus SLE and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (HSD). I have chronic pain, fatigue and memory loss along with other symptoms that affect me daily.    People often think that I'm not disabled or chronically ill.  There's a common stereotype that comes to a lot of people's minds when the words “sick” or “disabled” is used, and like so many I don't really fit that image. Most of the time when you look at me I don't look like I'm in pain or fatigued. I walk without aids. I take part in active outdoor activities.    People don't realise that I don't look in pain or fatigued because I have a lifetime's worth of experience pretending I'm not. I time my painkillers to kick in before I see someone. I'll make sure the environment I'm in when I'm with people is one that won't drain too much energy or add to the pain. I'll plan my week prior and after to ensure I'm rested enough and won't crash.    Finally, when I'm too exhausted to handle a simple conversation despite all my planning and methods… I will cancel and you will not see me in that state at all. The same amount of work goes into planning any outdoor activities. I have to use tactics and creative methods just to take part. I need extra preparations and plans to get by in a world that was created with non-disabled people in mind. This is the aspect of disability that people might miss.    Which brings me to the question - how can we help change this?   I can only be an expert on my own experience/disability/illness (and even then, that's iffy!). After brief conversations with others with chronic illnesses or disabilities, I have come across some amazing tips to help manage my own disabilities outdoors. I have found people who can relate to my feelings like no-one else can, and have helped me pass challenges I'd previously faced alone. I've realised that there's so much that I don't know about people who are chronically ill/disabled and so much more I should learn.    I want to talk to people with different disabilities and conditions to mine. I want to see what challenges they face when they access the outdoors, what hurdles they have to navigate when going outdoors. I want to ask them what everyone should do to flatten those hurdles as much as we can.    Outside: Our Way is a collection of interviews to show that we as a community are here. These interviews are a chance for disabled people to shape their own narratives and tell us about their way of going outside. It's aim is to shine a light on what it's really like to be an outdoor enthusiast and disabled/chronically ill.   To those who are disabled or chronically ill - I hope you can find something to relate to. There's a beautiful community that have shared experiences and can truly understand what you might think or feel.    To those who are non-disabled - I hope to show you what it takes to be disabled/chronically ill in the outdoors.

How you think a patient should handle this? Sometimes as physicians we get so used to telling our patients about some new disease, we forget their life is flashing before their eyes. They don't know what we know. They are scared. They want all the answers. Instead of becoming annoyed that they don't understand, they won't accept a diagnosis, or they won't do what we recommend, try turning toward self-compassion. There is a lot of "We don't know in medicine." Medicine is not just a science. It is also an art. We must remember that patients are not aware of how much we actually do not know and how much time a diagnosis can actually take to make. Understanding that our patients may be sad, angry, or upset is key. Their feelings are not an attack on who we are or our profession. Just accepting this may is the first step. Allow your patients to be angry, irritated, sad and even confused. This is all normal.  Drop the ego. Apologize. Make up! Love unconditionally.  We may get into arguments and say choice words to our hunny. Can we recover quickly? WALK AWAY ASKING YOURSELF Do I want all the control of things I have no control over?

Every successful entrepreneur has had a moment in their life where they DECIDED. Sandy and I like to call it a Decided Heart. You must have a Decided Heart if you want to succeed at whatever you do. You may have already made that decision, you may have a decided heart. I want you to DECIDE today to commit, or re-commit to your DECISION to play full out towards your dreams or your goals, towards your desired life. If you don't, you're simply being selfish. You were meant to live an awesome life. For more than just yourself. Make the DECISION to do what it takes to become a Champion. Every success starts with a DECISION. Not wanting something and being okay falling short, DECIDING that is where you're going. A decision is the match that sets us on FIRE. People follow people with conviction, who know exactly where they are going. Success chases those on FIRE. If I want to build a 7 figure business, the journey isn't going to be easy; daily action and hurdles and rejection and silence and small victories aren't what sets me on fire, the end result, building the business, building freedom for my family, building a legacy, building a life of impact, helping others gets to where they want to be is what sets me on FIRE. So the first steps are knowing WHY you want what you want, and VISION and CLARITY on where you are going and then making a DECISION you are going to do it by any means. Shut the back door on quitting. What does making a DECISION look like? It is the ability to stay loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you. A Decided Heart should not be just about setting a goal, but living by a standard. A goal is a something you reach. A standard is something you live by. A true DECISION means burning the ships. The ships are excuses, limiting beliefs, anything that will hold you back from reaching your vision. Burn them all, burn the ships, make becoming a champion the only option. There is no option B because you have shut the back door on quitting! BURN THE SHIPS!

Tiphaine in her own words:   "My name is Tiphaine, I'm from France and since I was a child my parents took me backpacking in other continents. They've opened me to the world. After three years of studies to obtain my Specialized Educator diploma, I felt the urge to explore more of this planet. I went to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa for a year. The adventures I've experienced there made me reconsider my whole perspective on life.   Inspired by my short cycling trips in Australia and New Zealand, I bought a bicycle and left, in June 2017, on my 23rd birthday. I started from my home in Paris, without a real plan, without a final destination and ended up cycling 20,000 km in 14 months, half of it with Martin (@hi.martin.cycles).    This trip, more than any others, showed me that dreams can come true and that travelling is a matter of motivation.

I had such a great discussion with Katarina Salisbury for this episode. This is the second episode in a two-part series with the Salisbury family—Katarina is with us this week, and last week we spoke with her mom, Leila. I hope you had a chance to catch that discussion—listeners are telling me it was a powerful one. Katarina is just 15 years old, and she lost her dad when she was 5. She's very articulate and she's passionate about helping grieving kids and teens. It was so great to hear her reflections and perspectives and to be able to share those with you today. It's such a privilege to be able to hear directly from a teen, and I hope it will help those of us who are widowed parents try to better understand our kids' experiences. Some topics Katarina and I discuss include: Learning that her dad died by suicide, rather than a car accident, when she was 8 or 9—a few years after his death; How much she appreciated the kids grief program she went to when she was younger; Feeling like her dad's suicide must have been her fault; Being labeled ‘the kid with the dead dad' at school; Feeling embarrassed and singled out when teachers would remind the whole class that her dad had died recently; Navigating telling people at her new school, after she moved to another state, about her dad; Losing her grandmother in middle school, and how that was much harder than she expected; Struggling at school because of her grief; Her plans to be involved in leading peer-to-peer teen grief support groups; How she and her mom have acknowledged her dad's birthdays and death anniversaries; Being upset that one year her dad's birthday passed without acknowledgment; Wishing that she had told her mom more about what she was going through; and Deciding that she wants to become an adolescent psychiatrist based on her experiences.

Highly sensitive souls seem to often be attracted to narcissists and involved in toxic relationships in general. This is mainly because narcissists need so much attention, care, and reassurance, while our high level of empathy makes us drawn to helping and caring for others. More than that, we can see through somebody's toxic behaviors into the core of that person, we can see (and fall in love with) the good part in anyone, with the potential each person holds. Sometimes the deeper that good part is buried, the more we fall for that potential, beautiful soul we will actually never get to know in real life. Also, many of us struggle with low self-esteem issues, insecure attachment, and people pleasing patterns - things that also make us prone to get into toxic relationships. Once we get there, it is very hard for us to get out or to make those changes that could transform the relationship into a better one. But admitting that there is something wrong, identifying some narcissistic traits in our partner and some toxic patterns in our relationship is an important step. So, if you've already done this, the question becomes: “Now, what? What should I do now? How do I handle this situation?” This is certainly a difficult moment for anyone. Deciding what to do next with a relationship that doesn't work anymore and preparing for a serious conversation about this is not an easy thing to do. And, if you are a highly sensitive soul and your partner is a narcissist (or a person who shows narcissistic traits), things can be even harder. But having this conversation and deciding what to do next is a must if we don't want to stand in the way of our own happiness. Hoping things will change by magic or wishing one day we'll wake up next to that wonderful person we once fell in love with (instead of this stranger that took their place sometimes along the way), is not realistic and certainly not healthy. We know that this situation is never going to change unless we do something about it. But how do we know what is the best thing to do? Do we need to move out of the relationship? And if so, what is the best way to do this? How do we leave a narcissist? And how do we move on?  In this week's episode, Lola answers these questions and much more. After revealing the most important narcissistic traits to look for in your partner in last week's episode, this time she dives deep into the three-step process for transitioning out of a toxic relationship in order to finally be able to live the life (and find the relationship) that you deserve.

The Messy Studio with Rebecca Crowell

At some point in their art careers, many artists are offered the opportunity to take part in an open studios event or art tour in their communities. These events can be lucrative and exciting --and provide many new contacts to help spread the word about your work. They also entail a lot of preparation and time taken away from normal studio life ---and several intensive days of meeting the public and handling all the details of selling work directly during the event. Today we take an inside look at this experience and consider the pros and cons of participating in an open studio or art tour in your own community. Although many times these events are very positive experiences, there are legitimate reasons you may hesitate. You may view your studio as a private sanctuary and not open to the public for any reason. Or you may not be comfortable selling your own work, or you may simply not anticipate an appreciative audience of your type of work in your area, and dread having to explain what you do. The physical accessibility of your studio and the preparation and time commitment involved during opening hours are also considerations. You may also want to be sure that there are other artists on the tour who you regard as peers, who have a similar approach in terms of pricing and professionalism. On the other hand, in evaluating whether to join a studio tour or open studios event, there are some positive signs that may persuade you to say yes. It is very helpful if there is a density of artists in your area, and if the event is locally well known and well established. As for your own work, it is good to have work at various price points so that people who are not prepared to buy larger work can find a piece that works for them. It is also good if you can line up some help for the event, maybe someone to participate in the set up or direct traffic, or just be on call if you need something during the event. Your attitude during the event is important. While it's fine to have expectations to keep you motivated, realize that you will have many people who are simply checking out your work or enjoying seeing your studio and are not there to purchase. That is fine, and you never know what might unfold later as the result of people having had a good experience. It's important to greet everyone, answer questions, and show a friendly attitude. A studio tour can be a very successful event, provide connections, and help in your involvement with the art community where you live. On the other hand, it's not a good idea to join just because you feel it is expected by other people—there is too much of your time and energy at stake. Deciding whether to participate means considering the pros and cons for your situation, but once you decide to join, a wholehearted attitude will bring the best rewards.

Leapfrogging (pun intended as you will see shortly) off of my previous episode #234 speaking about the virtues of being a marketing generalist, here is a case in point: If you want to become a marketing leader, you need to have all of your digital marketing bases covered.What bases need to be covered? And what does a comprehensive digital marketing program look like?I am honored to have my friend and Digital First Mastermind Community Andrew Smith on as my guest today offering us an x-ray view of the digital marketing program that he is running as the Senior Marketing Manager for Leap, the leading all-in-one home improvement contractor sales software.Leap sells to other businesses so the program being described is a B2B digital marketing program, a treat for you B2B marketers. But even if you are a B2C or nonprofit marketer, the lessons learned from Andrew's experience are 100% applicable to your situation.Key Highlights[00:57] Introduction of Podcast Guest, Andrew Smith[03:55] Andrew's B2B Digital Marketing Background[04:44] What is Leap And What Does It Do?[07:27] Where To Begin Digital Marketing Strategy?[10:14] Deciding on How Much to Invest In Each AR Activities[13:32] Criteria To Look At When Deciding About Changes In Budget[15:18]  Targets Set For Marketing By The Management[17:31] Verticals Based On Data[24:44] Andrew's Advice For Marketers In Marketing Technology[29:22] Upcoming Leap Features[32:44] Connect with AndrewNotable QuotesIt's being at least in front of those people and keeping them at least engaged to the degree that they don't tell you to go away that then when they're ready to pull that trigger, you're still front of mind enough that they are aware of you to do that.Being able, to know that what you do is going to produce a certain amount is a good place to be rather than sort of doing something and not knowing what's going to happen.It's more about the quality of that content, rather, the budget to reach those people since we have that covered. So there's really no category that we're not in, but it's creating the content for the vertical that's more important, I think.Start out small, prove a little prove a proof of concept, right? If you're doing you know, advertising or content marketing, or email or any of the channels that you're not currently in that you need some budget for that and try something you know, small or free.The other flip side of being in a company where the culture is very collaborative and productive, so that you know, what you need in marketing, from the product or from sales or from customer success, you have those people in those relationships that are willing to help you achieve what you want to do, as well as for the benefit of the company.Connect with Andrew SmithLeap: https://leaptodigital.comAndrew Smith on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewsmith1443/More Info on Neal Schaffer and This Podcast:Join My Digital First Mastermind: https://nealschaffer.com/membership/ Contact Me about My Fractional CMO Consulting Services: https://nealschaffer.com/contact/ The Age of Influence Free Preview: https://nealschaffer.com/age-of-influence-preview Subscribe to my YouTube Channel: https://youtube.com/nealschaffer Learn more about this podcast:  https://podcast.nealschaffer.com

A few seasons ago, Sully tried to quantify fan base suffering with "The Suffering Index." The formula is this. (Number of Years Since a Team's Last World Series Title) + (Number of Years Since a Team's Last Pennant ÷ 4) + (Number of Years Since the World Series Title BEFORE the Last one ÷ 8) + (Number of Years Since a Team's Last Post Season Appearance ÷ 16) + (Number of Deciding or One Game Playoffs LOST since last World Series title x 10) – (Number of Deciding or One Game Playoffs WON since last World Series title) = THE SUFFERING INDEX TOTAL Cleveland fans are suffering a lot... and could potentially end the suffering next year.

How do you decide what's “next” for you, without falling into the trap of doing something because it's what you've always done...or it's what is expected of you. Or, even worse, sticking with something because doing something different would look like failure to others. COVID has shifted life and business ownership for so many of us, and one of the gifts it's given us is the ability to see what's important to us. Time with family, taking care of our mental health, doing what lights us up (AND makes us a living) all come to mind. This week on the podcast, Julie Fry is sharing why she sold her profitable and growing business, what prompted her to start her current business, and what she did in between. (Spoiler alert: She got a j - o - b. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Promise!) Just because you're doing something now doesn't mean you have to do it forever. Our businesses change as we grow, and our lives and circumstances change as we get older. It's time we embrace that change and make decisions that fit where we are and where we want to be. Are you ready? Tune in now!   About Julie Fry: Julie Fry is the founder of Your Expert Guest, a podcast publicity and booking agency. Her secret sauce is creating meaningful connections between people that become clients, collaborators, resources, mentors, and friends.

Welcome back for another installment in our series covering Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Angelina, Cindy and Thomas share their commonplace quotes which leads them into discussing Fanny's character in contrast to the heroine of a gothic novel. They talk about what makes a good marriage in the Regency period and Jane Austen's own personal life, as well as the contrast between the household of Sir Thomas compared to Fanny's own family home.

Commonplace Quotes: Fear the man who says he knows how things should be. He doesn't Alexander Galich Things were easier for us. We were brought up on stories with happy endings and on the Prayer Book. C. S. Lewis One of the most dangerous of literary ventures is the little, shy, unimportant heroine whom none of the other characters value. The danger is that your readers may agree with the other characters. Something must be put into the heroine to make us feel that the other characters are wrong, that she contains the depths they never dreamed of. That is why Charlotte Brontë would have succeeded better with Fanny Price. To be sure, she would have ruined everything else in the book; Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram and Mrs. Norris would have been distorted from credible types of pompous dullness, lazy vapidity and vulgar egoism into fiends complete with horns, tails and rhetoric. But through Fanny there would have blown a storm of passion which made sure that we at least would never think her insignificant. C. S. Lewis Something Nasty in the Bookshop by Kingsley Amis Between the Gardening and the Cookery Comes the brief Poetry shelf; By the Nonesuch Donne, a thin anthology Offers itself. Critical, and with nothing else to do, I scan the Contents page, Relieved to find the names are mostly new; No one my age. Like all strangers, they divide by sex: Landscape Near Parma Interests a man, so does The Double Vortex, So does Rilke and Buddha. “I travel, you see”, “I think” and “I can read” These titles seem to say; But I Remember You, Love is my Creed, Poem for J., The ladies' choice, discountenance my patter For several seconds; From somewhere in this (as in any) matter A moral beckons. Should poets bicycle-pump the human heart Or squash it flat? Man's love is of man's life a thing apart; Girls aren't like that. We men have got love well weighed up; our stuff Can get by without it. Women don't seem to think that's good enough; They write about it. And the awful way their poems lay them open Just doesn't strike them. Women are really much nicer than men: No wonder we like them. Deciding this, we can forget those times We stayed up half the night Chock-full of love, crammed with bright thoughts, names, rhymes, And couldn't write.
