For most Boss Moms, taking two weeks off would put us two weeks behind. Wouldn't it be great if our businesses got better even when we're not there? The great news is, that's possible. We just have to think about our businesses from a different perspective, and shift from thinking day-to-day, to looking to what's next. That being said, that can be easier said than done. How can we think about the long-term and plan for it effectively, while staying focused on what needs to be done now? In this episode, I'm introducing 2 concepts spoken about in the Nurture to Convert society: focus milestones and increasing your levels of norm. 3 Things You'll Learn in This Episode How to sidestep shiny object syndrome Let's face it, it's tough to stay focused when shiny objects abound. How can we stay dialed in to what needs to be done, right now? Why giving ourselves time to think is more helpful than we realize Aside from short-term focus, how can letting our ideas marinate for a while benefit our businesses? The key to increasing our levels of norm We're so used to thinking in terms of what our lives look like now, but what if we started thinking in terms of how those norms shift?

Since travel is on many soon-to-be retirees' must-do lists I have created this summer travel series with various travel experts. Danielle Desir from the Thought Card podcast joins me today to discuss how to travel to any destination on a budget. Recognized by Flight Network as one of the best travel hackers in the world, Danielle has figured out how to travel to bucket-list destinations on a dime. Are you ready to learn how to plan your next big trip on any budget? Listen in to discover how. Outline of This Episode Danielle's journey to bucket list budget travel Identify the things that you value Take an individual approach Danielle's top destinations How to choose to repeat a destination Jet lag tips Where to learn more about travel hacking with Danielle If you're on a budget, don't settle for inexpensive destinations, think big! Many people think that if they are on a budget they can only travel to budget-friendly places, but Danielle Desir takes a different approach. As a travel hacker, Danielle has learned how to make travel to bucket-list destinations more affordable. She describes using an abundance mentality as a way to make affordable travel work. She recommends getting creative when planning, “take what you have and make it work.” Identify what matters to you The first step in becoming a financially savvy traveler is to identify what you value in travel. Is it important to you to be comfortable on a flight? Do you like to eat out and try the best local cuisine? Do you want to see everything you can in one location? Do you prefer luxury accommodations? Once you have identified what the most important aspects of travel are to you then you will understand where you can be flexible in your spending. If eating out isn't important to you then you can save money by packing a sack lunch each day. If a fancy hotel room isn't important then you could save money by staying in a hostel or an inexpensive Airbnb or motel. Understanding what you value in travel will help you save money and ensure that you have an amazing time on your trip. Make a game of saving money Another way to save money is to gamify your planning experience. By making a game of saving money you can compete with yourself to see how much money you can save each time you travel. You can cut costs in a variety of ways by looking for inexpensive accommodation, saving on flights, or by using travel points. Gamifying your travel costs allows you to get creative and save more. Communication is key when it comes to couples' travel When traveling with your significant other it is important to take into account what they value as well. Make sure to communicate with them so that you are both on the same page. They may value different things about travel so it is important not to skimp in the areas that matter to them. You should also be understanding of your partner's travel experience. There may be one partner that is more travel savvy than the other. That means that the travel-savvy partner needs to be patient and explain the importance of the things that you do to save money when traveling. It is also important to remember that traveling in retirement will be much different than traveling for work. You are out there to have fun. Listen to this episode with travel expert Danielle Desir to hear how you can travel to any destination affordably.

Generating revenue must outpace expenses and the gap between the two is cash flow. Where are you at and what function do you need to focus on most to grow and scale your business, right now? Property management growth expert and founder/CEO of DoorGrow, Jason Hull talks about the six core functions of a business. It's a concept he has expanded based upon what he learned from his mentors, Alex Charfen and Tim Francis. You'll Learn... [01:22] Core Functions: Jason took what he learned, applied it to property management. [02:14] Rate and Rank 1-5: Assess your business through the lens of core functions. [03:16] Function #1: Lead Generation - get contact info from potential prospects. [03:39] Function #2: Nurture - take and follow-up on lead opportunities to build trust. [04:30] Function #3: Conversion/Sales - deal w/ objections, convince others, close deal. [06:36] Function #4: Delivery/Fulfillment - do property management work promised. [10:03] Function #5: Customer Lifetime Value - increase long-term retention. [11:08] Function #6: Finances - internal cash flow, revenue, expenses, and profits. Tweetables “Finances was the additional function.” “You cannot have all of these areas be great at the same time.” “Your ability to convert and convince people during the sales process is a skill that develops over time and gets better and better and better the more you do it.” Resources DoorGrow and Scale Mastermind DoorGrow on Instagram DoorGrow on YouTube DoorGrowClub DoorGrowLive Alex Charfen Tim Francis LeadSimple Profit First by Mike Michalowicz Transcript Welcome, DoorGrow hackers, to the DoorGrowShow. If you are a property management entrepreneur that wants to add doors, make a difference, increase revenue, help others impact lives, you are interested in growing your business and life, and you are open to doing things a bit differently, then you are a DoorGrow hacker. DoorGrow hackers love the opportunities, daily variety, unique challenges, and freedom that property management brings. Many in real estate think you're crazy for doing it. You think they're crazy for not because you realize that property management is the ultimate high-trust gateway to real estate deals, relationships, and residual income. At DoorGrow, we are on a mission to transform property management business and their business owners. We want to transform the industry, eliminate the BS, build awareness, change perception, expand the market, and help the best property management entrepreneurs win. I'm your host, property management growth expert, Jason Hull, the founder and CEO of DoorGrow. Now, let's get into the show. Today, I wanted to talk about what I would call the core functions. This is a concept that I built upon that I learned from one of my mentors, Alex Scharffen, and he had what he would call the five core functions of the business. To me, it felt a little bit incomplete for myself and so eventually in working with Tim Francis, another mentor and coach and friend of mine here in Austin, I realized there was something else missing because I was focusing on those five core functions, but still, financially, I had some challenges. That's why I was working with Tim. He's a really good financial coach. He's one of the financial mentors that I've worked with. Finance was the additional function. I'm going to take you through these core functions and this is a way you can assess your business. As you're listening along, feel free to assess your business through the lens of the core functions, take notes, and identify each of these core functions of the business, and rate them on a scale of one to five. One being the worst, five being it's amazing. The most important thing I think to know about the core functions of the business and recognize is that it's impossible for all six of these core functions and the six core functions to be a level five at the same time. It's impossible. You cannot have all of these areas be great at the same time. As you grow and level up the business, you're going to notice deficiencies or you're going to want to level these areas up. There are levels to each of these six areas in which you can get better and better and better over time. That being said, when something is doing really well, other things are going to feel constrained and be a challenge. The first function that we'll chat about is lead generation. I call it lead gen for short. With lead gen, this is getting contact info and there are lots of different ways you can get contact info of potential people that might be interested in property management or potential prospects. In general, that's lead generation, so go ahead and rate that. The next function that you want to focus on is nurture. This is where you take these leads, these opportunities, and you nurture them, which means you warm them up or inject more trust. You create more of a relationship to warm up these leads to move them towards the next function, so go ahead and rate your nurture. Nurture relates to follow up, it relates to your ability to warm up these leads to build trust, to build relationships, and it could relate in your business the systems and processes related to this like whether you have a sales CRM like LeadSimple or something. Whether you've got the processes built out, you've got a good sales pipeline, you've got workflow you've got follow up, maybe having a follow up assistant, or needing one relates to the nurture category. The next category is where nurture leads them to, which is conversion or sales. This is where you're closing the deal. Number three, conversion or sales. Go ahead and rate your ability in conversion or sales. This is to deal with objections, close the deal, convince them to work with you instead of the other company they're maybe talking to or the other companies they're vetting. Your ability to convert and convince people during the sales process is a skill that develops over time and gets better and better and better the more you do it. Go ahead and rate yourself there. These first three relate basically to the front end of the business or sales. What I will hear a lot is people say, oh, my close rate, I'm like 90%. I'm a badass at sales, but then you ask them, where are you getting your leads? And they're like, they're mostly referrals, they're referrals. Cool. If you have a close rate less than 90% probably and they're warm hot referrals, you probably have a problem. That's the cool thing. If you get the right type of lead generation, nurture almost becomes unnecessary. You don't really have to warm them up. Then conversion also is largely dealt with because you're going to get the deal, you just don't screw it up. Now, when you start dealing with colder leads and colder prospects, my goal with clients is to make sure that you are a badass at conversion or sales and that you notice if that function feels weak right now because you've started maybe focusing on colder leads, or you're just not closing as many of the conversations that you've been prospecting or working with as you want. Maybe that function is weak. We can improve that significantly. One of the easiest ways to collapse time on these first three functions is to just focus on warmer lead opportunities instead of advertising or cold lead opportunities. Cold leads would be like SEO, PayPerClick, content marketing, social media marketing, pay per lead services like [...] et cetera. Those take a lot more time and I've talked about that in other trainings and other podcasts, I'm sure many times. Number four, this is more shifting into the back end of the business or behind the paywall. Once they've converted into a customer, they've signed the contract, they're now a client. The next step, item four, would be delivery or fulfillment. Delivery, fulfillment largely is connected to operations. This is everything that you said you were going to do during the sales process. This is screening tenants, working to find tenants and tenant placement. This is maintenance, coordination, everything. All the work of doing property management. That is what is included in delivery fulfillment—dealing with tenants, all that kind of stuff. Generate reports, owner payouts, all of this that's all under delivery fulfillment operations. What I'll notice a lot in the industry—for those that are struggling to grow—is they won't have operations delivery fulfillment. They'll have number four out of five or a really high level and yet then lead gen is like a one. If lead gen is one and delivery and fulfillment is like a five, you're making a big mistake in the business because what that tells me is you consistently keep focusing on the wrong things in your business. You're doing the wrong things. Any function that you're focused on of these six functions, which we'll finish and go through in a second, any function you're focused on primarily and trying to maintain it to five, that is not your weakest function. That's where your time, energy, focus, attention, cash, effort, et cetera are going, you are making a mistake. That means you are distracted. Those are distractions because what the business needs most right now is whichever of these functions is weakest, that's where your five currencies I talked about time, energy, focus, cash, and effort should be focused on. This is where all that should be going so that you can get a return and you can level that up. The goal is to level up the weakest function, and then if that's now a strength, now your other functions will appear to be weaker in relation. Now those you're going to rate at a lower level and you're going to want to level those up. This is the juggle of running a company and running a business is figuring out what do I need to focus on most right now. If you are at the helm, you are the entrepreneur, you are the leader, you are the business owner, you need to provide this leadership to the business to your team. You need to help them figure out what is our weakest function to focus on. Too often, the business owners continue to focus on the function that they're already good at, that the business already has at a five, and they try to keep it as a five. You have to be willing to let a five slip in order to get something from a one or a two, and that's okay. Get those up to a three, a four, or maybe even a five. If delivery or fulfillment, for example, operation slips to maybe a three in relation because now you're getting so much business, it's uncomfortable, you can't onboard everybody, and things are starting to slip, cool. Now it's time to shift your attention and focus to that function. If you assess this regularly on a quarterly basis and brainstorm with your team through these functions, you will be able to make really good decision-making. The next function after delivery fulfillment or operations, number five, is the customer's lifetime value. The customer lifetime value or CLV includes retention, it includes resell, it includes upsell, and it includes your pricing. You want to make sure that your fee structure is good. That you've got really good fees in place so you're getting paid really well for what you do. That you're maximizing the lifetime value of these clients in that way. Also, you're able to focus on the right types of clients in your lead generation and in closing that are going to have a lengthy retention rate. You're able to retain clients long term, or you're able to convert short term property management clients, not sure short term rentals, but accidental investors, for example, into long term buy and hold investors. You have some process maybe for that. You want to increase the customer lifetime value. If you're losing a lot of customers due to sales right now, then that's the area to focus on right now. There's a weakness maybe on your CLV, for example, or maybe you just need to increase lead generation in order to counteract that. Number six is finances. The financial area of the business means the internal finances for you as the business owner and for the business. This means cash flow, revenue, expenses, profit, reporting, financial decision making. If you do not feel like this is your strength or this is a weakness in the business, this is something that you will need to work on. One of the initial baby steps I like to recommend is usually implementing profit first. You can check out my previous episode with the author of the book Profit First, Mike Michalowicz. You can just search for Profit First DoorGrowShow on YouTube if you want to pull that up or on iTunes, podcast app, or whatever. I'm a big fan of Profit First. We operate with the Profit First system. We've taken things financially beyond that to another level in working with some of the financial coaches and financial books that I've gone through. I think that's a really fantastic starting place. It gets you out of the feast and famine of cash flow cycles getting scarce, then trying to make money, and the hunt and the chase constantly of trying to escape. The way I like to compare finances is, the analogy I like to use is Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones running from the boulder. Everybody remembers this iconic scene in Indiana Jones and I believe the Temple of Doom and he's running from the boulder. He's just taken the statue, it set some sort of booby trap off, and now this boulder is chasing after him. He's running for his life. Indiana Jones running is generating revenue, that's revenue. Revenue has to outpace that big boulder, which is expenses. The gap in between Indiana Jones running and the boulder coming after him, that gap, is cash flow. Some of that cash is already spent so there's really just free cash is the real gap. Some of that cash is already going to be spent, you know expenses are coming due, you have to have it set aside. Profit first is going to help you kind of get this in alignment a little bit more. It's going to help you get better cash flow and it's basic. Some of you are basically borderline accountants, so this isn't maybe as big of an issue. Maybe the finances are tight. A lot of entrepreneurs are more visionary-oriented, they're dreamers. Sometimes they're hiring staff too quickly. They're starting to focus on some of the other functions, building up operations maybe, and they're spending more money. All of these things go hand in hand. Finances also relate to the type of lead generation that you can do, all of these things interplay with each other. My goal for those listening to this episode is to take a look through these six lenses of your business to figure out what does the business need most right now? What does the business need most? For those that are like why does he add the six functions of finances? One of the things that's absolutely possible in some businesses is to generate enough deals, enough sales, and enough business to where you can't deliver quick enough on it to get the return or get paid on it and you can actually run out of money by doing too much sales. Just focusing on revenue all the time in a top-down just revenue focus goal is not always the most effective financial goal in a business. It's the most typical, but that's not always the most effective. You can actually go too fast and grow too quickly if you're not taking into account the financial aspect in relation to the other core functions. Take a look at your business, chat with your team, go through and assess your core functions. We have a more formal brainstorming methodology that will take clients through these functions to really assess their business. At a quick easy glance at your business, you can look through and just ask yourself, where are we at in relation to these functions. You can ask your team as well to get a perspective, and you will then have some pretty good eye feedback and a pretty good idea of which function you need to focus on most in your business. If you find that operations are a big constraint for you right now, what you'll find then is lead gen and conversion will be heavily impacted because you won't really have confidence in your product, in your service, in your offering because you lack integrity. If you are delivering fulfillment of three or less, and you're trying to go out and create new business, you probably feel like you're lying to people by saying, hey, we're really awesome. We're the best property managers. We do a great job. When deep down you're like a two in doing a great job on a scale of one to five. All of these impact each other. Let's figure out what's your weakest function that you need to focus on right now and where does your attention needs to go. If you could use some coaching or some help, we'd love to get you into our DoorGrow & Scale Mastermind. Reach out to us, you can check us out at doorgrow.com. You can also join our free Facebook group by going to doorgrowclub.com. Facebook's getting a little weird lately with censorship and craziness, so we're seriously considering exploring, shifting out of the DoorGrow Club to maybe Telegram or something else. Let me know your feedback on that if that sounds interesting because I think there's going to be more outages with Facebook, more censorship, and more challenges. I'm less and less of a fan of Facebook every day. Let us know, but currently, our internal groups are in Telegram so we're solid there because it seems to be really reliable. Anyway, reach out to us. We're happy to help you figure out how to grow your business and scale your business. We can help you with getting things in alignment on the operation side. DoorGrow OS, building these systems, building a planning cadence, helping to get operators in the business, helping to get people to take stuff off your plate and to offload.

Creations blossom as a result of our contributions and our efforts. Every time we share our creations, it's time to celebrate our impact and recharge ourselves. This episode talks about managing ourselves as we move through the creation process. Let's really reflect on what you're creating in your life, and what I'm creating in my life, and this idea of us being creators. We're all creators, regardless of what we are creating, doing, or being. With simply our presence on this Earth, we are creating within ourselves and interacting with the things around us. I'm here to spend quality solo time with you for EP60's Wise Walk as we discover our True Stride. I'm still on a high from publishing my first book, Heart Value. While enjoying the finished project, I keep finding lessons in the time I spent on this creation. More than that, this creation is showing me that the work isn't done. I'm gradually discovering ways to continue supporting my first book and supporting you all as you connect with the content. On our Wise Walk, I discuss how we as creators can cultivate the art of creating and nurturing towards anything in life. I give examples from behind-the-scenes of wrapping up the book launch and celebrating a job well done. Later in the conversation, I share thoughts on how we occasionally bump into the need to pivot with the ebb and flow of life around us. I explore what it means to be kind to yourself, and show up better, to reflect on these Wise Walk questions and more: What is something you're working on, or striding towards, that you know is going to change your life and it's going to need different types of nurturing? As you go on this journey and think about the other things you want to create, how do you want to pace yourself? How are you going to incorporate that intuitive sense of nourishment and recovery, so that you can be your best self at every step of the way? Whatever your creation is, as life ebbs and flows, can you make the space to always make your way back to it? If you're finishing a project or in the middle of a project, tune in to hear these Wise Walk questions to find a way to pace and nurture yourself: How are we slowing down and nurturing that creator within us? How are we recovering once we launch something? Join this inspiring community to uncover a new sense of freedom, and be sure to follow and review the True Stride podcast as we continue to exchange our light and Heart Value with each other. In this episode: [00:23] - Welcome to the show! [02:20] - Mary Tess shares the variety of ways her energy pulled her in different directions in the weeks leading up to Heart Value being officially published. [04:02] - Here are the questions we are thinking of on this Wise Walk. [05:57] - To nurture your being, sometimes the most effective method is to simply be kind to yourself. [07:35] - What happens when you give yourself space to be human on your journey? [09:11] - Mary Tess shares her gratitude for the outpouring of support in her first-time author journey. [11:40] - What continues to feed creations after they are launched? Listen to Mary Tess talk about recovering to show up better. [13:39] - There is an ebb and flow in life to honor. [16:36] - Think about where you are and how you are nurturing your creations. [19:14] - Thank you for listening! Memorable Quotes: “This recovery idea is all about trying to invite this pacing for myself, so I can fire on all cylinders when I'm in that GO-mode. When I'm in that recovery-mode, I give myself the kindness to kind of stop, recharge, and just reevaluate.” - Mary Tess “Whatever it is that's important to you, it's also important to this world. You have something. You have Heart Value that you deserve to share and that people are going to benefit from.” - Mary Tess Links and Resources: Mary Tess Rooney Email Facebook | LinkedIn | Twitter | Instagram

If you've been feeling disconnected with your body lately, then this episode is for you. J.Go teaches us the methods she's used to reconnect with her body: Nurture, Nature, Naked. J.Go Lately: Hosted the J.Go Retreat Had one of her biggest Body Confident Blueprint launches Coming off of that high, she felt lost, disconnected and confused. Why? “It's easy to get caught up in goals, and you can lose yourself in the process if you're not doing things that bring you joy everyday” She recognized that she did not feel connected to her body. Ask yourself: When do I feel the most connected to myself? (When do I feel most connected to God and the Universe?) For J.Go, it's three words: nurture, nature, naked 1) Nurture - Some tips on how to give yourself nourishment: Write a letter to your younger self. Ask, “What would make you happy today?” It usually comes back to play If you feel like nothing can bring you joy anymore - ask for help. Give yourself some TLC, make your favorite comfort food 2) Nature - Tips for how to be more present in nature: We're on our screens a lot more now and it's important to get outside. The more you consume what others are doing, the more disconnected you feel Go for a walk and be more present by breathing, listening, looking, and finding gratefulness 3) Naked - Options for being naked to love and affirm your body: It's easy to focus on your worth outside of your body. Your worth isn't tied to your body, but your body still provides you life and deserves to be celebrated. Dry brushing Putting on lotion that you love Say thank you to each part as you pamper it Baths gives us an opportunity to slow down in a vulnerable state Dance naked and take your time getting dressed Do yoga naked (or with less clothes on than usual) How to get started? Journal and ask yourself two questions: - What do I do that makes me feel most connected to myself? - Ask your younger self: What brings you joy? How can I find joy today? Take one day a week for 5-10 minutes to journal. What's something we did really well this past week? What can we do to show ourselves more love this week? “Life is short y'all. If you're feeling disconnected from yourself and you're going through the motions, you're missing out on what it fully feels like to live.”
This is Part 2 of the Herman Drenth case. For this episode, I have Brittany joining me to discuss our thoughts on the case as a whole as well as what we think is at play here. Was it nature? Nurture? A combination? Why?--------In this episode, we will do a deep dive discussion about the case, the people involved, our thoughts regarding nature vs nurture, and much more. Join in on the conversation via Facebook and in the comments on Patreon!Additionally, we announce the next categories and what we're bringing to NVN for the remainder of November!
Born on November 17, 1892, Herman Drenth had many names. Much like all of the Bluebeards we've covered thus far. Unlike the others, however, Herman had a different method to his madness. He told authorities that it gave him sexual excitement to hear his victims' screams from within the chamber, at night. He went a step farther than the other Bluebeards we've covered, in that he specifically built an area in his home, to torture his victims PRIOR to gaining their wealth and murdering them. Additionally, to make him a bit more sadistic, he didn't care who he had to kill to get the goods. He went as far as killing his love-interests' children as well. Which, we HAVE seen on at least one other occasion, but those were collateral damage, if you will. With Herman; it appeared as though this was just an extra level of excitement and pleasure.---For this episode, I stuck to the dates and the facts that we knew about him/his criminal life. In part 2, I will go over more about the nature vs nurture aspects, what we know about his school life, relationships growing up, careers, how he interacted with other humans as well as animals, MO, victim type, more about his “chamber”, suspected victim count, type of serial killer he was, execution style, and much more.Also in part 2, you will hear Brittany's thoughts and reactions to this case as well as what's coming up in the feed for our next category!So, join us tomorrow for Part 2 - where Brittany (from Where the Weird Things Are Podcast and I will do a deep dive discussion about the case, the people involved, our thoughts regarding nature vs nurture, and much more.

How to nurture your relationship with yourself:Be aware of where you are at by asking "am I loosing or gaining energy and identity?"When you notice you are "numbing out" do activities that bring you joy and pay attention to using your senses.Make conscious choices about who you are, where you want to go and what you want to accomplish.Build personal power so that you are not so influenced by others' negative/heavy energy.Aaron Benson, M.S. of Social Work, has worked for over 13 years as a counselor and a coach supporting individuals with mental health challenges.

This is part 6 of our 6-part series, helping a church to learn and implement the dynamic VISION of becoming a missionary sending church. We compress two days of training into these six 15-minutes overview segments. This episode, NURTURE, helps the whole church understand their role and proper expectations for enabling their missionary with shepherding ministries. Missionaries with such a caring sending church are the envy of other missionaries on the field. This part of the VISION will certainly encourage and enable your missionary to stick with it in faithfulness for the long term.

How do we expect positive outcomes in recovery when all of the language we use has a negative orientation? Stop drinking. Fix your spiritual deficiency. Don't be codependent. Focusing on positive outcomes is more than fluffy self-help jargon. On this episode, Sheri and Matt talk about the kinds of fundamental changes required for the recovery community to earn improved success rates. Matt quotes Dr. Abby Medcalf (Untoxicated Ep90) and Dr. Robert Weiss (Author of Prodependence and future Untoxicated guest) about the importance of positivity in the work they do with people in recovery. After the recording stops, Sheri makes fun of Matt's man crush on Dr. Weiss for about a day and a half (sorry you can't hear that).

How is your podcast strategy? Do you even have one? Lots of podcasters struggle with finding constructive, intentional ways to get the word out about their show. The marketing stuff can get tricky. Many podcasters I talk with would be happy to have enough downloads to get 2 or 4 coaching clients paying a fee. How do you bring a few listeners through the funnel? Let's look at your whole strategy today on this episode. BOOTCAMP Before we jump into it, I want to invite you to a powerful event I am holding where I will help you build your podcast monetization strategy. We actually get stuff done in this day-long bootcamp. So many times, we go to webinars hoping to learn something only to find out it is full of fluff. We might walk away with one or two ideas after an hour. But we are really only there for the sales pitch. You now have a chance to join me for a 6-hour Podcast Profits Bootcamp where I will walk you through the entire process to build your podcast monetization strategy. It's actually 7 hours, but you get an hour for lunch. During this event, we will build a few ways to monetize your show that are perfect for you. This isn't one size fits all. It is specific to your podcast. You can enroll at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/bootcamp. You will get a workbook that will help you stay on track as we develop your strategy. During the bootcamp, we walk through the workbook step-by-step. We will start with your foundation to ensure you are building on solid ground. Then, we will develop your purpose. I'll show you why most podcasts don't make money, so you can avoid those pitfalls. Many people think ads and sponsorships are the way to make money with your show. That is a myth. It is the worst way. Sponsorships require a very large audience and a lot of sales time. Ads also have a revenue ceiling. I'll show you a better way during the Podcast Profits Bootcamp. I won't just show you, we will build it together. We will discuss the various ways you can monetize your show, and we will pick the strategy that is right for you. Finally, you will have plenty of time to ask me questions to refine your strategy. This is so much more than a webinar or workshop. It is a bootcamp where we will actually get things done.

Jump in right now at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/bootcamp. BEGIN YOUR STRATEGY As you build relationships with your content, start with the end in mind. This is where your strategy begins. What do you want your listener to take away from this episode? What emotions do you want to stir? What do you want your listener to do when the episode is over? When you know those goals, your content will be easy to create. On your podcast, stir emotion by talking about the “why” to your solution. Agitate the hopes, needs, fears and dreams of your listener. Then, give your listener a little of your "what". Let them engage with your coaching, courses or other offerings for the "how". MONETIZATION STRATEGY Then, you need to determine your revenue goal. You make money with your podcast, not from your podcast. The podcast doesn't generate any income. Ads are a lot of work with very little return. To monetize your show, leverage the attention you have built to drive your business. How does the podcast fit into your overall marketing plan? Start with the goal. Your podcast is the top of your funnel. This is where you build the relationship with your prospective client. So, what do you want them to do when the show is over? Have one clear, concise call-to-action. Get them started on their journey with you. This could be a free download, strategy call, webinar, or ask me anything session. Give them something in return for their name and email address. Nurture the relationship, serve them well and move them through the sales journey. MARKETING STRATEGY When it comes to marketing, begin again with the end goal in mind. Intentionally build the marketing plan for your business. I was looking at the calendar the other day and realized we are 8 weeks from New Year's Eve. The new year always brings new goal and a renewed energy to what we are doing. Unfortunately, studies show that 60%-80% of people give up on their resolutions by the middle of February. You're probably saying, "Erik, we just finished Halloween! What's all this resolution stuff?" Well, I believe most people give up on their resolutions, because they don't have a clear plan to achieve their goals. Lose weight. Start my own business. Grow my podcast audience. Spend more time with my kids. Those are all great. But, they are not specific and are not connected to a plan. Now is the time to start planning. Create your strategy to reach those goals. Spend the next 2 months getting things in place to execute your plan when the resolution kicks in. A plan is something like go to the gym 3 times a week, appear on 2 other podcasts a week or have one-on-one time with each kid once a week. That's a plan. If you build your strategy now, you will have a much better chance of reaching your goals. On top of that, who says it needs to be January 1st to start working on a new goal? Get after it. AUDIENCE STRATEGY In radio, we had a saying. Frequency to the target. The first time a prospect hears your marketing message, it goes in one ear and out the other. The second time, the message might start to sink in. The third time, it might ring a bell in their memory. When your prospect hears your message the fourth, fifth and sixth time, he might begin to remember it. Therefore, you need to deliver your message to your prospect six or eight times prior to the moment he is making a buying decision. You cannot try a marketing tactic once and decide if it works. It requires frequency to the target. Don't expect your audience to grow overnight. Your prospective listeners need to hear about your show multiple times before they will push play. How many times have you said, "Oh yeah, I've been meaning to listen to that podcast." It's like snowfall. Mother Nature doesn't make it snow for 3 minutes and then think, "Well, that didn't work." It takes millions of little flakes over time to create a 5 foot drift. As you work to grow your audience, be consistent. Pick three marketing strategies. This could be other podcasts, appearing on summits and stages, social media, YouTube, partners, guest blogging or various other ways. Select three that you enjoy and can do consistently. Then, spend 30 minutes each day taking action on those vehicles to get in front of new potential listenes. Over time, your audience grows. YOUR PLAN Are you frustrated because your podcast makes no money? So many podcasters come to me struggling to find a path to riches. It is possible to monetize your podcast. However, you need to understand that it takes three things to make that happen. Something to sell A strategy to sell it using your podcast Patience If you have those three things, you have a much better chance to use your podcast to build and grow a business. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, good things will happen. GET SPECIFIC One of the most common questions from podcasters is, "How do I monetize my podcast?" I've tried it all. When I first started, I put everything I knew about building great shows into a comprehensive course. It was a masterpiece. Then reality cracked me upside the head. Nobody wants a comprehensive course. They want a focused solution to their problem. To monetize your show, you must … Have something to sell Ask for the sale Serve first Find your listener's true pain Explain their transformation with your solution Build rappport As you develop something to sell, find what works for you. It should be something that ... You enjoy People want (different than need) You can deliver Can scale TAKE ACTION Those are the steps. If you would like my help crafting your monetization strategy, join me for the Podcast Profits Bootcamp. Join me for a 6-hour Podcast Profits Bootcamp where I will walk you through the entire process to build your podcast monetization strategy. It's actually 7 hours, but you get an hour for lunch.

Alfred Leonard Cline. AKA a “Fiendish Philanderer” and “The Buttermilk Bluebeard”. Born in 1889 and; Cline was a predator who married mostly widowed women of status, convinced them to will their possessions over to him, and then coerced them to drink a glass of poisoned buttermilk. But this wasn't your average glass of high-protein buttermilk that was easily digested as a natural treatment for gastrointestinal ailments. No siree, it was not. This was a staple of Alfred Cline's cocktails that he would prepare with a little extra UMPH. He would add powerful sedatives to the buttermilk for his lady of choice...who would then ingest it and die shortly thereafter. And although Cline was linked to the deaths of at least 8 eldery people, there was never enough evidence found to implicate him in foul play. But before really delving into WHO Alfred Cline was and where he came from; I want to first tell you about his criminal activity and who his victims were. Then I will go into a bit more detail with what we know about his upbringing, how he got away with his crimes for so long, and what ended up being his downfall.----------------------------Special thanks to Courtney of the Cult of Domesticity Podcast for her assistance with the research in this episode!Join us tomorrow for Part 2 - where Brittany (from Where the Weird Things Are Podcast and I will do a deep dive discussion about the case, the people involved, our thoughts regarding nature vs nurture, and much more.

The vaginal microbiome is often mentioned in passing - sort of as an afterthought - usually when we're really talking about the gut microbiome. We've decided to give the vaginal microbiome centre stage today, and with good reason - it's a huge factor when it comes to the quality of a woman's life and health, and has implications for fertility, pregnancy and childbirth, and risks associated with sexually transmitted infections. On this podcast, NBT Scientific Director and Coach Megan Hall and I are discussing the vaginal microbiome: what it is, how to assess for problems, and how to maintain a state of good health. Megan talks about the effects of vaginal dysbiosis on pregnancy and fertility, and how to create the best possible outcome for childbirth. She explains what causes disruption to the vaginal microbiome in the first place, and how ancestral health principles can keep you on track. She also outlines how to rebalance the vaginal microbiome when there's dysbiosis, along with practical steps to take before resorting to antibiotics and antifungals.

Lindsey has found herself inspired and empowered by Feng Shui Consultant Kristina Hollinger. The two met through social media and are both in a Small Business Social Society. Kristina is a mother of two and works in public education, but more importantly, she's been manifesting with feng shui for ten years. She wrote the book Teaching From The Heart With Feng Shui and has even been featured on HGTV. She says manifesting is her favorite topic in the whole world and one she's gotten really good at talking about. So, what is manifesting? Kristina describes it as setting an intention for what you desire in wealth, relationships, career, etc., and then surrendering and trusting the universe to take care of the details. Lindsey always considered herself to be someone that wings it and is always moving faster than she can keep up with. Now, thanks to Kristina, she recognizes that she's simply open to different paths of getting to her goals and is excellent at leaning into things that are going well. What You'll Learn: What manifesting entails and how you can get started today. What the hardest part of manifesting is and how to lean into it. What book helped Kristina to manifest getting on HGTV. What feng shui is and how it can aid you in manifesting your destiny. Favorite Quote: “The second you invited me to talk about manifesting, it was a hell yes, this is my favorite topic in the world.” -Kristina Hollinger -- The past two years have been eye-opening for host Lindsey Hanlon. With a new perspective on life and a new-found perspective on her past journeys, she realizes that it was her consistent leaps of faith that brought her where she is today. Now that she has broken out of her cage of fear she enjoys sharing her journey and new-found purpose and passion to inspire those to do the same. When the excitement of something overshadows the fear of it, it is important to take the leap. Don't stay caged with fear. Do the things that inspire you to dig deep, rise up and live now. One of Lindsey's favorite quotes is, “We have one life, just one, why aren't we running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams?" Nurture a 'do something that scares you every day' attitude. Don't find yourself living in misery because you aren't going after what you want. Pursue what sets your soul on fire, and you will find that you've become the happiest and best version of yourself.

What does expanding your circle of care mean? What does it look it?Treating your practice as a business is not just good for you, but it's good for the families you take care of. This includes finding support so the burden of nurturing your business is not solely on you.There's no way to be a hundred percent independent in your business so building that foundation of support at the beginning of your business is important. The goal is to have a compassionate and sustainable private practice that takes care of you.In this episode, we are discussing how your circle of care has one center - your business and how to envision what your business needs.“When we feel taken care of, and when we are tangibly actually taken care of, we will have what it takes to take care of other people.” In this episode, we will cover:How nurturing our business actually nurtures our clients (3:06)Why self-care feels like another job (6:06)The importance of checking in with your business (14:12)The idea of treating your business like a baby (19:28) Like this episode?
