In this special episode, host Kelly Ryan Bailey is joined by Lynz Floren, GM, and Executive Producer at Growth Network Podcasts to discuss his career transition during the Great Resignation. Lynz went from his marketing job for the LA County Bar Association to starting a podcast company! Learn what skills he used to make this transition, and why he feels we shouldn't follow our passions, but our curiosities.   Big Takeaways:  Sometimes people know they are unhappy, but they don't know what sets them on fire. That's when they should pursue something they love, whether work-related or not, just to increase their skills.  There are just so many ways we can use our hobbies or interests. What we'll see is that a thing that expressed itself in our teenage years resurfaced in our twenties, in our thirties, and our forties, until it was treated with the dignity it deserved and given a spot in our lives.  “I would say the number one thing that helped me actually push through from wanting this career to actually doing it was investing in myself. I've been going to therapy almost every week for seven years....that had to help. I've been attending workshops, really intending to learn and network. It sometimes feels like a sideways trip, but I came here with more tools than I would have, had I come directly.” - Lynz Floren  Learn more about Growth Network Podcasts and check out the other awesome podcasts they produce!

Thanks for tuning into the Scale Your Small Business Podcast with your host, Jillian Flodstrom. Joining us this week is Caroline Schaefer, a woman who is on a mission to inspire change and growth for both mental and physical prosperity. She's a firm believer in self-education and is constantly improving.    Caroline is no stranger to adversity--but she's no stranger to overcoming it as well. Facing sexual assault, a dysfunctional home life riddled with conditional love and yelling, Caroline found strength. She needed that to overcome a traumatic and difficult pregnancy where she battled sickness, paralyzation, and depression. With her “light off” she went to Tony Robbins' Unleash the Power Within and it lit a fire beneath her. She began asking herself "Why? What's my motive? What's my reasoning? Why do I think that?" and it shifted her perspective. Now, her foot is on the gas and it's not coming off. She won't fail because she simply won't quit.    Caroline is all about change. She believes change equals growth. When you're not growing, you're stagnant. The only way for fulfillment is constant growth. That mentality has carried into her podcast, The Vitality Feed, where she inspires others to continue to change. Caroline's focus is now working 1:1 coaching people to build that mentality and learn that it's okay to pivot, it's okay to change things. It's okay to continually learn and adjust. Key Takeaways   Adversity happens--you can overcome it with your mindset You can't fail if you don't quit.  Change is necessary for growth and success. Don't be afraid to pivot.

Kyle Kostechka interviewed the Chief Business Officer at LiveIntent, Jason Oates, about the role of programmatic email advertising in marketing, the death of the third party cookie, and how brands can pivot and start to develop their own first party data. Primarily, the email address. A mobile ID and phone number are not enough. Email is the largest human identifier EVER created. Enrich your email address to authenticate other IDs and own your own data! Email is not dying; it's thriving more than ever before. Email is like oxygen, EVERYONE needs it. It is larger than all internet activity combined and it's the number one way brands can communicate with customers. E-comm brands should be leveraging programmatic ad platforms that have over 25000 publishers, because it's still a performance marketing platform.

I am lucky to be joined by Kathleen Shannon; she has a real passion for talking about licensure portability. It's an issue that many of us have run into if you move around, change states, or simply want to be licensed in multiple states. This particular issue of licensure portability comes up a lot during Covid. Many people recognize the need for licensure portability as we shift to and from telehealth. Tune in as we chat about what you need to get licensed in multiple states and how Kathleen plans to make the process easier with her courses. Meet Kathleen Shannon Kathleen B. Shannon, MA, LCMHC, CRC has worked in the rehabilitation and mental health industry as a licensed provider for over 21 years, gaining experience in working with veterans and others with PTSD, anxiety, and depression, as well as those in recovery. As a seasoned rehabilitation and mental health counselor, she is passionate about seeking out and working with your values, strengths, and abilities to achieve your goals. Outside of the office, Kathleen enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, and exploring new ideas, and learning with friends. Why Therapists Are Getting Licensed In Multiple States Even though Kathleen got her degree in Florida, she was on the way to Washington State when she walked across and got the degree. When Covid hit, that was another struggle for Kathleen and most therapists. She works with many people who are either elderly or college students; both of those populations had to go live with family or weren't allowed to be around their families. So, Kathleen decided to take the time to get her license in more than one state. However, the state said she would need to go back to grad school. So, Kathleen found the commonalities that you need in every single state to be able to have licensure. Getting A License In Every State Will Be Pricey If you want to have a license in every state, you need to have a lot of money because each state wants a lot of money. As long as you have a lot of money, you can be licensed in every state. Plus, you have to stay organized and make sure nothing expires. The first thing you need to do is go ahead and take every single solitary exam. That's the number one thing. From there, you can figure out where you want to focus. Do you want to stay in a single time zone? Do you want to have the luxury of actually offering decent times to people in other time zones? So it's just something to consider but, first, take both exams, whether you need them or not because eventually, you will. Kathleen Is Creating Courses For Multi-State Licensing There will be two different courses; there's going to be a course for graduate students who are looking for initial licensure. For most states, it's either an associate or an intern. For these people, the course will be about finding out what that state would need to obtain licensure. Let's say you're in an online program in Virginia, and you live in Georgia. So Kathleen wants to help you find out what Georgia would need versus what Virginia would need. The other course will be available to people who've been licensed for more than five years on how to either transfer or obtain additional licensure based on the endorsement. All in all, there will be two different tracks: one for the freshly graduated and going to get associate or intern licensure and then the one for people who have been licensed for several years. Why License Portability Is Critical During Covid You need to be able to be there for your clients. License portability is a huge problem for therapists and people struggling with their mental health. With Covid, mental health has started to come to the forefront of people's minds. Plus, there is less stigma around people seeking help for mental health issues. It has forced many states to be more consistent with licensure reciprocity. People are also becoming much more transient because of Covid. They are moving to different parts of the counties, leaving big cities, and looking for lower living costs.

I've come up with the name for the rebrand of the podcast.  Table Rush!  For a moment I thought it might be Bitch Slap: Business addition.  But my coach said it might be a good time to drop the “bitch”.  Somehow I'm willing to let go attachment and go with the new name.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!  These are the best mobile mic's for IOS and Android phones.  You can literally take them anywhere on the fly.Get the Shure MV88 mobile mic for IOS,  https://amzn.to/3z2NrIJGet the Shure MV88+ for  mobile mic for Android  https://amzn.to/3ly8SNjGet A Course In Miracles Here! https://amzn.to/3hoE7sAAccess my “Insiders Guide to Finding Peace” here: https://belove.media/peaceSee more resources at https://belove.media/resourcesEmail me: contact@belove.mediaFor social Media:      https://www.instagram.com/mrmischaz/https://www.facebook.com/MischaZvegintzovSubscribe and share to help spread the love for a better world!As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.Transcript:Mischa Zvegintzov  00:00Well, it is happening. There is a major change in store. There sure is major change for the Bitch Slap Podcast is in order. So let's talk about that for a little bit Challis. Okay, let's do it. Very exciting, right on these past few episodes I've been talking about shifts in, who I want to help and serve who I can help and serve. I believe who I'm best suited to, to help and it's definitely clear, that I'm gonna help people who want to help people. I'm I'm gonna pivot away from the, from the... Not going to. I am, I am pivoting away from the, shall we say, divorce dad, who was trying to, you know, find new passion or, or.  Pivoting away from, you know, the excuse me, the A type who's trying to realign and re-find their direction. They just had this epiphany. You know, that's definitely was super strong at Funnel Hacking Live, which is that entrepreneurial marketing conference. Online Marketing Conference. That what brings me joy is talking business, talking business strategy, talking marketing strategy.  It's been a big part of my life for a long time. I love it. It makes my heart shine. I'm totally going that direction. And I've got some great focus and ideas on who I'm going to help with that. Maybe I'll get to that here. But what I was gonna...Mischa Zvegintzov  02:15I think the value I bring, as well as you know, bring in the spiritual perspective, for sure that I have into the business arena as I reemerged into the business arena. Because they I great tools, techniques, strategies to stay heart centered to stay with, you know, your passion. How to not get distracted by the shiny objects and and I definitely have clarity that I can help people who are stuck as they're trying to grow their businesses. And at this point, that's going to be more of your, you know, solo entrepreneurial type. Versus like, like, what, like a CEO or something like that, or working with big businesses. That's at this point, it could grow to that. But very excited about that. So we are going to be renaming the podcast. It was really cool. I was talking to my business coach and and the new podcast title is going to be Table Rush. Yes, Table Rush. And what was there my tagline all the sudden I've forgotten it. I had it written down. But of course, I'm out walking. So it just came to me as I hit pause and was walking by kids and families in such. Table Rush, getting back to the basics to grow your business. I'll say it again, Table Rush, getting back to business. Getting back to basics, to grow your business. Which I think is awesome. I think I definitely am good at following steps to execute. I've talked about it on many episodes, follow the instructions, do the basics, and you can get the results that are so oftentimes promised or that we've seen other people get the same results, get the results of doing the same thing. So I think that's super cool. Definitely gonna be Table Rush. Most definitely, let's say 90 to 95%. Tagline is still in flux. Tagline still in flux still in play.Mischa Zvegintzov  04:57Originally I was gonna go Bitch Slap Business Edition, which I thought was pretty cool, too. And then it was like, hey, you know the the Bitch Slap is the smack on the side of the head telling you to get back to basics like. Quit Chasing the shiny shiny objects. Like, let's get you unstuck let's, let's do the next indicated step that's right in front of you. But with bitch slap moniker, my coach very graciously said to me that probably a great time to drop the name, drop the word bitch from out of your podcast.  So who knows what, what the woke terms will be if I ever have enough success where people look at my old content and are shocked by what's out there.  That'd be a fun problem to have, I think.  An amazing problem to have. And I think, you know, what value can can we learn? Like some you know, from this? Or what can I learn? Or what what's the lesson I think is there?  At least one of them for all of us has to stay tenacious in what we do stay consistent in what we do. Get connected enough with your your purpose, so that you can continue to take messy action and can then pivot accordingly. And I think it's a pretty big step for me to be willing to walk away from the Bitch Slap ...The Accelerated Path To Peace. And I was actually going to just shutter this whole podcast all together and start a new. But my coach Vince, hello, coach Vince, if you're listening, recommended, hey, you know what, just rebrand your current one. Just rebrand your current one and have fun with it. You know, come up with a fun name, have fun with it.Mischa Zvegintzov  07:26And and that's what I'm going to do. And I'm going to embrace the old content and let it go and let it be there. So we'll just rebrand this and let it rip. And in three to five years, as I have success, what a great thing to be able to look back on. So that's one lesson on I definitely think being willing to pivot quick is another one I'm somehow willing to walk away from so much of what I have vested in, you know, the original idea that got me started here. But a bunch of other lessons in there too. As I'm walking, they're escaping me. But I think that's enough for now. Very excited to talk more about the new vision that I have about who I can help you know, business wise and help people. You know, get back to the basics get to the blocking and tackling so they can grow their business to that to that million dollar mark to that million dollar annual revenue revenue. And perhaps it's your first million dollars, or perhaps it's consistently growing from a million dollars a year. But I think that that's a beautiful place to start. So love to all Peace out.

Welcome lifers to a laugh and a half episode with Sally Hepworth. We sat down with Sally to not only speak about her brand new book "The younger wife" (which you can get here BTW: https://www.sallyhepworthauthor.com/) but also to talk about navigating a change in your career when you've possibly had a different one before or you're a little bit further along in life. Sally boldly became an author not long after the birth of her first child so we picked her brain about how and why she made such a pivotal change in her life! It wouldn't have been possible for her to be such a successful writer without her husband Christian making some changes in his roles as a parent and within the household. We talk with Sally about what a parent's role can look like in 2021.  Sally is witty. She is hilarious & she went to a sex party to research one of her books. This episode is likely to give you a laugh! You can find Sally here: https://www.instagram.com/sallyhepworth/?hl=en We also touch on the Matt Doran, channel 7, "I haven't listened to your album yet Adele" saga and how it's a good reminder that we need to pay more attention to what the boy scouts said and 'always be prepared!"  If you like the episode, and the pod, we'd really love a review on apple podcasts!

Today, we talk about how to build team culture in your practice. Creating the right culture within your practice is a learning process and a growth process as a business owner. Dawn gives tips on building a culture within your workplace that reflects the values and mission of your group practice. We also speak about the importance of soul care and taking care of that side of yourself. Remember, you need to invest in your self-care as much as you do any other part of your practice. Meet Dawn Gabriel The Faith Fringes Podcast hosted by Dawn Gabriel is for anyone who has ever - or who is currently - questioning their connection with God. Do you find yourself wondering if what you believe is true, asking how a loving God can let bad things happen to good people, or questioning how you're supposed to experience God in everyday life? As someone born into a Christian home amidst the Christian culture of the Midwest or "Bible Belt," Dawn has experienced many emotions, unanswered questions, and life-changing moments that altered her perceptions of faith forever. She's here to let you know that everyone's journey in finding a deeper connection with God is different, but that doesn't mean that journeys shouldn't be shared. As a Group Practice Owner, Consultant, wife, boy mom, and Podcaster, Dawn believes that you can - and will - experience God in so many unexpected ways. It's okay to question and challenge everything you've been taught. If you're a Spiritual Explorer, interested in becoming one or looking for an inclusive and safe space where doubt, questions, and curiosity are encouraged, Faith Fringes Podcast is for you. Interviewing For Workplace Culture In Group Practice Dawn started a group practice, but she didn't have any business skills. Sadly, Dawn didn't know about this beautiful world of consulting. For the first three years, Dawn would hire people who could see clients; she didn't streamline her interview process. During year three, Dawn realized she needed to get better at interviewing. Dawn finally understood the need to interview for workplace culture. Plus, Dawn got business consulting. It changed her practice. Hiring the right people for your business is crucial; it can make or break your group practice. Building The Right Culture Within Your Team Building the right culture within your practice is a learning process and a growth process as a business owner. Dawn wanted the therapist to be faith-based, but she didn't want the practice to be faith-based necessarily. Dawn's group practice doesn't overtly advertise that they integrate the Christian faith; instead, they make it more subtle. However, Christian faith is something that is embedded in their workplace culture. She wanted that to be important to the people that she hires. Your Therapists Should Also Be In Therapy It's essential when you're hiring to ask a question somehow to find out if they're in therapy or if they've been in therapy. You want therapists who have worked on their own stuff. Dawn does a three-part interview process. During the second interview, Dawn involves her team. Dawn's team is made up of individual contractors, but they commit to a team atmosphere. They have team retreats and monthly team meetings. The independent contractors commit to those standards. If you're thinking of hiring independent contractors, do your research on how you can implement team meetings or retreats. Taking Care of Your Soul as a Therapist There's a spiritual piece of all of us, whatever faith or religion you choose to believe in and follow. No matter what, there's still this element of something deeper within us that's bigger than us. As therapists, we create and hold sacred space for others; there's something sacred in that room, regardless of what religion one believes. There is healing, hope, and transformation in therapy. It impacts therapists on a deep level. So, it's vital to look at that deep within your own self of what's happening spiritually in your soul. The Importance of Self-Care For Mental Health Practitioners Sometimes we put our worth and our purpose in how we impact others. Often, that can come at the expense of our own self-care. Unfortunately, many people are not putting self-care as a focus. Sometimes it feels better to give to other people. Plus, when we focus on ourselves, lots of stuff will bubble up to the surface. That's why it can almost be easier to help other people rather than take care of ourselves. During the pandemic, therapists needed to focus on self-care because we are simultaneously going through a similar trauma that our clients are going through.  Being transparent… Some of the resources below use affiliate links which simply means we receive a commission if you purchase using the links, at no extra cost to you.

In this episode, I talk about some of the myths and misperceptions people have about being on insurance panels. I delve into this topic and let you know what I've learned about it from my insurance-based practice. First, I speak about the stigma around accepting insurance in private practice. If you accept insurance, you are just as valid and can be just as successful as private practice owners who are cash-based. Tune in as talk about the pros and cons of insurance panels, why I chose to be insurance-based, and where to start when you decide to accept insurance. The Stigma Around Accepting Insurance In Private Practice Many people are curious about accepting insurance and if they should or not. There is no correct answer. If you start to delve into your mindset and think about it all, it might just be something that you should consider doing. When you look at all that is out there, there are so many great resources around building a private practice. It seems like most people are encouraging cash-pay. There seems to be a little bit of a stigma against having an insurance-based practice. Many people say that you don't want to be controlled by insurance companies. If therapists don't have a cash-based practice, they're second-class citizens for being an insurance-based practice. I don't agree with that at all! In fact, my success comes from being insurance-based. The Pros and Cons of Being An Insurance-Based Practice There are a lot of pros and cons to being on insurance panels. Certainly, one of the cons of being insurance-based is that you've got to have more systems and processes in place. You've got to do more work on the front end to get prepared for insurance. You need specific systems when you start accepting third-party payors and being reimbursed by insurance companies for your services. The biggest con is that there is some work on the front end of being insurance-based. The pros for being insurance-based are that you've got a built-in referral source by being on insurance panels. I would say at least half the people that we find are from their insurance. In other words, they checked with their insurance provider first to see who would accept their insurance in the area. When making an appointment with us, people ask, how much does it cost? Plus, they ask if we accept insurance. That's why I wanted to be an insurance-based practice. People depend on their insurance, and I want to help those people. Ready To Accept Insurance? What To Do First Where do you start? Research your area to find out which are which insurance panels are the most prevalent. In my area, most people have Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance. Another thing to research is looking at significant employers in the area. Then, check which insurance those companies use. Next, use that data to decide which insurance companies you want to be paneled with. Another thing to note is that when an insurance company offers you a contract, that's negotiable! Make sure to negotiate what rate you will accept. Systems and Processes Around Filing Insurance Claims Figure out your systems and your processes around filing insurance claims. If you're on insurance panels, you need a traditional way to send claims off. The best way I know to do that is through an electronic health record system. TherapyNotes helps my practice with this. It's a few clicks of a button to get your insurance claims sent to the insurance companies to be reimbursed. For the most part, insurance companies have a pretty quick turnaround for electronic health claim submissions. Within a week of sending off the claim, we are getting paid. There's a myth that you have to wait a long time to get paid from insurance companies – that's not true! So, make sure you have a way to submit claims and make it as automated as possible. Cash-Based and Insurance-Based Private Practices If you're not ready to be entirely reliant on insurance, there's a hybrid option! You can have a mix of cash-paying clients and clients that use insurance. Give people a choice on whether or not they want to pay for therapy through a third-party payor. Remember to set your full fee at a reasonable place; your fee needs to be your FULL fee. The insurance company will pay you what they pay you. Then, you write off the difference between the full fee and the contract rate. If they choose not to use insurance, you can offer a sliding scale based on family income. We don't go and check their income; instead, we go on the honor system. Ensure that the lowest rate on your sliding scale fee schedule is in the ballpark of your average reimbursement rate from insurance companies.

When you can harness the awareness that occurs, you can respond to reality in a new light. Brett explains the power of incremental growth and how it can change your private practice. Plus, Brett dives deep into how mindfulness can be a powerful tool for not only your personal life but also for your private practice. Meet Brett Hill In college, I decided that the limits of what we can achieve and the quality of our lives are dependent on our ability to communicate well.  My degree in interpersonal communication combined nicely with my fascination for technology led to a career as a technical storyteller, author, blogger, and speaker for companies like Microsoft, Adobe and others. But I wanted to go much deeper, so sought out the best I could find. I've had the good fortune to study Hakomi somatic psychotherapy with the founder –  Ron Kurtz, Matrix Leadership group dynamics with the founder – Amina Knowlan, and meditation with the late Audle Allison. I taught meditation for several years and founded the Quest Institute in Dallas. Other influences include martial arts, contact improvisation, and training with Gabrielle Roth As a result of this unique background, I've come to believe there is no faster way to improve your communications and the quality of your life than being mindful during a conversation. The Language of Mindfulness is the distillation of many years of work and inspired a TEDx talk (2021), the book, and the class in development. I am available for podcasts, speaking, and coaching. If you have any questions, would love to chat. The Power of Incremental Growth Marketing yourself as a resource is a very different business than selling software or a mobile app. When you're selling yourself as a service, it takes an entirely different orientation. You need to add small pieces over time like social media, podcasting, and website work. Plus, networking is essential when you are selling yourself as a service. That way, you can be connected to the right social fabric. When you shift to private practice, you have to learn how to run your business differently. Improve Your Professional Life With Mindfulness Mindfulness is the number one thing you can do to improve your personal and professional life. If you want to lift your life's quality, learning to be mindful will change your brain matter. Through mindfulness, your prefrontal cortex actually gains more material. That material in your brain is going to make your world a lot easier than it is today. You will be calmer, more resilient, and you will have a lot more choices than you did before. It's time to teach yourself how to slow things down enough to be mindful. You can learn this over time; it's a skill! Saving Time By Using The Power of Mindfulness If you don't have time to learn about mindfulness, then you really need to practice it! Would you rather spend 20 minutes getting something done frantically and get it done to 70% of your capacity? Or would you rather spend 20 minutes getting something done and be calmer and do it better? You might even do it in 15 minutes. With mindfulness, you can save time doing your tasks. More importantly, you will have a better quality of life. What's the point of being busy? If you're always busy, your life is going to be over before you know it. The Basics Behind Mindfulness First, Brett will teach clients about mindfulness. Most people don't know what mindfulness means or what it looks like. Brett will tell clients how to separate their thoughts and identity; once you can do this, it's pure magic. You can't read a book about mindfulness and understand it. Instead, it would help if you practiced mindfulness. We have a choice about what voice we listen to in our heads. Think about how your inner critic is taking over your thoughts and behaviors. The practice of mindfulness is responding to which voice we listen to. The Formula To Find Your Niche Brett has built his niche around mindfulness. He will show up on people's podcasts and talk about mindfulness, explain how it works, and even demonstrate. This routine has established Brett as an expert in this field. So, when people discover Brett, they find him in the context of mindfulness and mindful communication. It's important to frame yourself as an expert on some topic and have a lot of referenceable material. A niche is about having an identity and being an expert at said identity.     Being transparent… Some of the resources below use affiliate links which simply means we receive a commission if you purchase using the links, at no extra cost to you.

It's about time that I get this big news off my chest, so here goes… I'm retiring as a business coach. If you've been following me for a while, you might have known that this was coming. But if you're new here, you might be a little shocked. After being in the business coaching space for the last 2 and a half years, I'm finally giving myself the room I need to grow and evolve.   One thing I tell my clients all the time is that they have to align with their soul's purpose. And while I will always be proud of watching my clients make more money, I feel more drawn to the essence and transformation that mental and emotional wellness can bring. So today, I'm giving you the inside scoop on why I'm retiring as a business coach, but not as a coach altogether. I share my story on growth and evolution and why giving myself permission to do so is important. I chat about how I'm aligning with my soul's purpose and truly getting behind the things that I stand for. This episode is for anyone who has ever been afraid to take a step towards what lights them up. Tune in, listen to how I'm pivoting despite the fear, and find out why alignment is what matters the most.   What we covered: Why I'm retiring as a business coach and not from coaching in general My story on giving myself permission to grow and evolve The importance of mental and emotional wellness in my life and business Why I pivoted into business coaching in the first place Aligning with my soul's purpose Relying on the essence and empowerment behind what I'm standing for   “I am no longer fancied by the idea of just my clients making money.

Bringing Big Beauty Savvy to Her Own Brand with Courtney Baber, Co-founder of The Route Beauty

Through time, some of the strongest relationships have led to the biggest successes. Cory and Shawn from Boy Meets World were a dynamic duo, Turk and JD from the television show Scrubs are the traditional sitcom-bromance most friends envy. But what happens when friends become business partners? A powerful co-founder relationship is not just needed but relied on — especially when you leave a successful career to do your own thing. You need someone you can lean on, trust, and go to when things are rocky. That's what Courtney Baber did when she launched The Route Beauty with best friend and now co-founder, Nancy Pellegrino. Courtney left a successful career with some of the biggest beauty brands in the game, Sephora, L'Oreal, and Urban Decay to bring her own skincare solutions to the counter in a big way. “When Ulta said, ‘yes, we want to launch you.' I can't explain that feeling. I just laid down on the floor of my daughter's room and just started gyrating, I don't take anything for granted. I built strong relationships in my career and people believe in what I can do; it's all about working hard and giving the retailer and the customer something that they need and they want.”Featured on Oprah, promoted by Khloe Kardashian, and sold on HSN, The Route Beauty is making big moves in the beauty world, now available on the shelves of big retailer, Ulta. I'm excited to bring you the story behind Courtney and Nurse Nancy's beautiful and thriving partnership as co-founders of The Route Beauty, up next on Marketing Trends. Main Takeaways:Test out New Tools: There are so many new marketing tools and channels to get your message out there to the right people. Be creative by testing out new platforms. Not all of them will be here to stay, but the opportunity to be first on a new platform could be a great advantage for an emerging brand.Pivoting to Fill the Needs of a New Business: Think through all of your business options and have a sense of where you can take things if something happens to plan A. For example, you may find yourself needing to shift your plan from selling or marketing  B2B to D2C suddenly, or retail to online… complications occur for a multitude of unforeseen circumstances. Sometimes you get caught behind some insurmountable roadblocks and you've got to have a sense of where you can turn to keep the business thriving.Getting It Perfect: Especially as a new brand, with a limited number of skews on the market, it's important to take the time to get every little detail of new products perfect before putting them on the market. You only get one first impression and making a good one is worth the extra time so don't be afraid to push back on launch deadlines to get things dialed.Key Quotes:“I hit a point after we sold Urban Decay to L'Oreal -- I stayed on for four additional years as their head of marketing and merchandising -- and I was passionate about what I was doing, but I was tired of building dreams for other people, and I wanted to try to do it for myself. That's really why I took the leap of faith.”“I would have probably never done this by myself. I have a BFF, my skincare BFF, my BFF in life, “Nurse Nancy.” I've been her patient for over 10 years. And we always, when I would be visiting her to help fix my skin, And it was with these medical grade products and she would always talk about it. She always wanted to work together. And we both hit the same point at the same time. It was kind of this magical moment where we said, ``Well, let's do something together.”“When they said yes, when Ulta said, ‘We want to launch you.' I can't explain that feeling. I just laid down on the floor of my daughter's room and kind of just started gyrating, I don't take anything for granted. I built strong relationships in my career and people believe in what I can do, it's all about working hard and giving the retailer and the customer something that they need and they want.”“I couldn't be happier with the partner that I chose, but you really have to find that yin and yang and in a partnership like that, it's no different than a marriage.”“We're going to test a new platform called Comments Sold  later this year, which is really interesting to me. It's live streaming to your social channels and people can buy right then and there. It's like Amazon live, like HSN, but it's really more targeted at your unique followers.”“It's kind of a challenging world, the influencer world. It's gotten very hard to play in that space without spending a lot of money. When I was at Urban Decay we could get people to do things for us by just giving them early access to a product. You can't even talk to somebody without first paying the agent. So what we've decided to do is go kind of a much more micro route and really kind of build relationships at a grassroots level. And then also we've really built this group of what we're calling our “Routies” they're really are true brand devotees who have been with us from the beginning and they are influential. They're not millions of followers because but this group of individuals, we kind of have an affiliate program where they get some kickbacks from us. They love the brand, they love talking about it, but we also want to reward them for continuing to do that. So it's a small group of people like that. And then we're really how we were really growing our awareness and following and email list through working with like-minded brands that aren't skincare brands. They're hair brands or they sell chocolate that is high-end, or one wine brands  -- we all want to scratch each other's backs and all win together. And so that's been really successful.”“I'm not looking a lot at what other people are doing. I'm looking at what's right for our brand and what is innovative in other industries and the medical world. And because that's how we're going to be able to stand out and have a point of difference.”Bio:With more than 25 years of experience, Courtney Baber has built brands for some of the beauty industry's top heavy hitters like Sephora, Urban Decay, Estée Lauder, and more. Courtney's passion for skincare, makeup, and fragrance has led her around the world to help evolve the face of beauty—literally. She pioneered the path to debut up-and-coming beauty brands for Sephora internationally and was behind the global roll-out of Urban Decay to 30+ countries.She is a former Miss Ohio USA, and her mom was also a beauty queen. For Courtney, competing in Miss USA was about so much more than winning a crown, it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that helped instill independence, perseverance and self-confidence. It pushed her outside her comfort zone—she believes if you are uncomfortable, you are growing.To learn more, click here: {{URL of detail page on found on www.mission.org}}---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

"Part of being entrepreneur is that sense of unknowing." - Lida CitroënIn this week's episode, we have Lida Citroën. She was in corporate America for 20 years moving from one industry to the next. It's not that she can't do one job perfectly, it's more of accomplishing so much in that one position and then challenging herself to be as successful in another one, in a totally different industry.She established Lida360 last 2008 in the worst economy. She thought of helping businesses to do strategic branding and global positioning. Lida turned these trying times to guide other businesses on how to position themselves to be competitive in a very complicated market. Lida connected with other business owners and had informational interviews with them. Surprisingly, the advice that she got consistently from other successful business owners, was to NOT have a business plan yet. She was told that creating a business plan at the onset will cause you to miss the organic part of the business. She mentioned that as she started her business thinking that she will help businesses in doing marketing, as she was doing for years. And then personal branding found her and she fell in love with it. A personal brand is a narrative or a value proposition that defines yourself. She believes every business, in every industry, should have this. It is creating a story where you tell who you are authentically and with consistency. And this is where you connect with your people, human to human.

Joachim Hensch is a master tailor and for years dreamed of opening his own shop. In reality, he did that on a much larger scale during his 24+ year career at HUGO BOSS. There, he moved from product development to becoming the Managing Director of their massive Izmir, Turkey facility, where he led a best-in-class digital transformation. Now, he's helping other manufacturing leaders with their digital transformations through Joachim Hensch Consulting. In this episode, Joachim takes us through the story of his career. He shares the learnings he's picked up along the way that allows him to give world-class advice to his clients today. He explains why digital transformation is a must, but it has to be done the right way. Joachim has seen many mistakes from business leaders, and it often boils down to focusing too much on the tech rather than building a plan first.

In this episode, Jenn Uren of This Mom Knows Podcast joins the show. She talks about staying organized and letting go of her perfectionism while homeschooling five children. If your systems and processes aren't working as smoothly as possible, Jenn explains why you need to remove yourself from the process. If you can't remove yourself from your practice, then find a fresh set of eyes to look for you. Tune in as Jenn talks about the importance of support, finding time to focus, and how to make your least favorite tasks more doable. Meet Jenn Uren As a mompreneur, every business “yes” can feel like parenting “no” - and the mom guilt kicks in! Jenn Uren helps mompreneurs find and implement the right systems, tools, and processes to help them focus their time and be their best as both “mom” and “entrepreneur”. As a homeschooling mom of 5 (3 bios and 2 by a surprise adoption), she is familiar with the constant pull between task and relationship while making sure all that needs to happen does. Her husband Jim is a serial entrepreneur and together they have had enjoyed flipping the script from building a life around a job to building businesses that allow them to live their priorities. The This Mom Knows podcast is a place where mompreneurs can find encouragement, support, and connection with other women business owners who KNOW. Lessons Learned From A Mom of Five There is some truth to birth order, and each child is so different and unique. Jenn has had to learn how to let go of her perfectionism. When Jenn wants to try something new as a parent, she tries it for six months to see how it works. Everyone works with systems and routines; you can always find things that need to run smoother. Business owners can be the bottleneck to a process. If you find a way to remove yourself from the process, then flow can happen again. Observe What's Happening In Your Private Practice Business owners can be the stumbling block, and we are our own worst enemy. We can't see what's going on in our business because we are too close. So sometimes, it's helpful to sit back and become an observer. Watch what's happening in your home and watch what is happening in your business. If you're still too close to observe your business, then have someone else look at it with a fresh pair of eyes; they can see things that we can't see. Plus, they can notice things that we might not notice. Shifting into the role of an observer can help you figure things out. Asking For Support With Your Practice Another way to help your business is by asking for support. Mastermind Groups and Focus Groups are a great way to find support in private practice. Find colleagues that you can rely on to be vulnerable with and to talk to about things. You can find people that you can ask for help from. Also, you can swap challenging tasks with other people. Maybe you're good at one task, and your friend is good at another task. Well, swap with each other! That way, you get to do what you like to do, and you get to help a friend too! Beating Overwhelm By Doing A Brain Dump The three things that consume us are our time, our thoughts, and our things. We need to give margin, boundaries, and space in our life so that we can say yes to the unexpected. That way, we have the capacity to think and create; we have the ability for something new to come into our space. All without bursting at the seams; that's what is overwhelming us. Overwhelm happens when we don't take the time to purge. If you take the time to do a brain dump, you won't have to think about everything. Instead, you get your thoughts on paper and finally focus. When we can concentrate and use our time well, we feel like our business is going well. That's what gives us that sense that all is balanced and integrated. Think About What You Spend Time Avoiding Think about what things you are spending time and energy avoiding. For a lot of people, it's their laundry. For other people, it's their meal planning. If you hate to cook, then you need to figure out a way to make it work. Jenn hates cooking, but she figured out how to still cook every night for her family. For instance, she uses an Instant Pot for many of her meals. Also, Jenn will prep dinner when she makes breakfast. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your family when it's age-appropriate.

I am lucky to have many of my good friends and peers join the show. Uriah Guilford, Jessica Tappana, and Whitney Owens are here for a casual conversation. First, we dive into the importance of diversifying your income. We open up about what it's like to run a practice as well as another business. Both isolation and imposter syndrome can show up for us; we talk about ways to overcome and navigate our limiting beliefs. Later, we chat about the importance of finding a community to build you up, make you feel confident, and allow you to be vulnerable on your journey. Meet Uriah Guilford I am a licensed therapist & group practice owner. I want to help you be more productive, profitable & happy with your business and your life. Basically, work less and get more done! If you have achieved any level of success in your private practice then you can relate to the following. You have more tasks to complete than hours in the day. You work super hard because you are passionate and want to grow. Sometimes you neglect your self-care and other important things in your life. Not so great right!? That is why I have built a team of amazing virtual assistants for practice owners just like you! Hiring a virtual assistant in 2012 was one of the best decisions I ever made. It allowed me to double my business income without feeling like I was losing my mind. Actually, go on vacation and not be tied to my iPhone the whole time. And serve my clients better! It made such a massive difference for me and it can for you as well! If this sounds interesting, check out our services page and the most frequently asked questions we get all the time. Meet Whitney Owens I enjoy working with both adults and adolescents on an individual basis. I have experience working with those suffering from depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, identity formation, relational issues, and other mood disorders. I use a variety of therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy. I have been seeing clients since 2009 in a variety of settings. While earning my Master in Professional Counseling from Richmont Graduate University, I saw young adults at a residential treatment facility. In 2010 I moved to Colorado where I spent four years working at an inpatient and day treatment facility. Also while in Colorado, I joined a group practice and saw teenagers and adults. In 2014 I moved back to Savannah and started Water's Edge Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and a member of the American Counseling Association and the Licensed Professional Counseling Association of Georgia. In addition to counseling, I also offer a number of other services including training and speaking engagements. Meet Jessica Tappana Jessica Tappana started her private practice on her maternity leave about 20 months ago. After filling up in only a matter of months, she decided to bring on other therapists as 1099s and transitioned Aspire Counseling into a group practice. Worried about how she would fill the caseloads of these new therapists, Jessica tried several different marketing strategies.  Ultimately, she decided to focus on getting her website to the first page of Google and began teaching herself SEO at nights after her kids were in bed. Slowly after gathering a couple of tips here and there, she got her website to the first page for nearly every keyword she targets.  Aspire Counseling has grown to now include five therapists and a virtual assistant! In fact, all of the therapists are nearly full, and Jessica hopes to find a few more quality team members in the months to come. Create Another Business For An Additional Income Stream A theme that people hear from me a lot on the podcast is how it's important to diversify income. Uriah, Jessica, and Whitney all run at least two businesses. There are a lot of unique challenges that come with owning multiple businesses. One of the great things about having two businesses is constantly waking up excited. If you're less excited about one business, at least you can get excited about your other project. However, having two businesses can come with a lot of stress, and people from the outside looking in don't get to see that side of things. No matter what, you can wake up every day and bring 'you' into that business. Battling Isolation and Imposter Syndrome In Private Practice As practice owners and business owners, it can get very isolating at times. So, sometimes imposter syndrome shows up. Uriah says one of the most valuable things for battling the isolation and imposter syndrome is feedback. Feedback is invaluable on your private practice journey. When you have people you can gain feedback from, you will walk away with thousand times more confidence. Everyone struggles with their business, so if you can hear other people's experiences, it will make you feel less isolated. Plus, this feedback will shape the future of your business for the better. Find Support No Matter Where You Are In Your Journey Regardless of where you are in private practice, you need support. Find a group of people that you trust to help you on your journey. Make sure you're comfortable with this group, and you can be vulnerable with them. The power of a group is having a community where you can share anything. As therapists, we all know the importance of group work and community. A mastermind group can be a powerful tool to uplevel your practice and uplevel your business. It will give you the confidence to keep working on your business and take the next step. Take A Risk, Get To Know Others, and Create A Community Private practice is hard, and managing people is hard. So, make sure to take care of yourself so you can have energy in your businesses. Get out of your comfort zone and meet people. If you're not already in one, create a community for yourself. Get involved and take risks in getting to know people. In general, therapists are pretty safe people. It would help if you weren't too scared to reach out to someone and get to know them.
