Composing the perfect pitch is an art. 

You have to know yourself, your business, or your offer SO well, and then be able to extract the information that is most important to the person or business you’re pitching. The perfect pitch is engaging and informative, and it inspires interest or better yet, action. 

Today’s guest knows what makes a great pitch. Jules Pieri gets thousands of pitches a day as the Co-Founder and CEO of the product launch platform called The Grommet. Do products like FitBit, OtterBox, SodaStream, and S’well sound familiar? Jules and the discovery team at The Grommet have helped make those a household name. 

With her experience, you know she’s seen some awesome pitches, and some not-so-awesome. Jules is here to share her advice for a great pitch, especially when it comes to the product world, but also how her advice applies across the board. We also chat about innovation and standing out in a crowded market.

Imposter syndrome is feeling out of place in the scenes you’ve dreamed up for yourself. It’s reaching that big goal and looking around thinking, “I don’t belong here, someone is going to call me out, I’m not supposed to be here.” 

Imposter syndrome plagues even the most accomplished, successful people because it has nothing to do with our qualifications or experience. Imposter syndrome attacks your confidence and changes your inner dialog, and it can impact your productivity, big time. 

Imposter Syndrome is psychological, and I’m not a psychologist… However, I muscled through the feelings of “not good enough” and “who do I think I am?” so I want to share with you my own personal experiences, how I tackled my own imposter syndrome, and mix that with careful research from some trusted sources. 

I want you to have the tools you need to push away that nagging self-doubt and do the big things you were born to do. At the very least, this will be a jumping off point for you to recognize your Imposter Syndrome and begin working through it to claim your title and place in the world with pride.

There are riches in the niches. Have you heard that before? 

It means the better you know your ideal customer and audience, and can fine tune your offer to meet their needs, the BIGGER you can make it in your own little sliver of the market. 

Some entrepreneurs are so gifted at niching down that they actually invent and pioneer a market for something no one even knew they needed… Today’s guest falls into that category.

Christine Lucas is doing BIG things on Etsy as the creator of Lula Flora, the company that pioneered the mini piñata party favor trend! She carved out a niche in the party decoration market in 2014 and quickly climbed to the top 1% of Etsy sellers, averaging over a quarter million dollars in sales the last couple of years.

Christine shares about finding her niche, about growing within it, about the Etsy selling experience, how she grew with a product so highly specific, and her advice for others excited about the idea of selling their products on Etsy.

No one told you that becoming a business owner actually meant tons of hours spent tethered to your computer becoming: a masterful blog writer, a customer service representative, an accountant, a branding genius, and a social media expert. 

Let’s go back to that customer service bit... Because we all want happy clients, but we aren’t sure exactly how to get them every single time. Don’t worry, I’ve got you. This episode is your guide! 

I am sharing my 5 secrets to getting happy clients in a service based business and how you can create a system to ensure client satisfaction. I want to help you avoid those sleepless nights thinking about your client base and the emails that make your stomach totally drop.

My business mantras include -- One: Done is better than perfect. Two: Nothing is urgent. And Three: Don’t build your business on a platform you can’t control. 

I can’t tell you how many DMs I get every time Facebook or Instagram does down, hundreds of panicked people wondering how they’ll get their message heard if they can’t post to Instagram that day.

You know I like to show up on Instagram and it’s always been a great way to connect and communicate with my audience and ideal customers, but there’s something I’ve learned and I am so passionate about it, I’ll never stop sharing the importance of it: You need an email list. 

When Instagram goes down -- No sweat. I can still reach my audience, and even more directly, with my email list. Instagram is the handshake, but email closes the deal.

Today I’m working with one of my students, Natasha Smith, for a coaching session all about email lists. She’s a little apprehensive about building her list, she doesn’t want to sound sales-y and she’s not entirely sure what would convert best for her business. Class is in session!

I was afraid to have a baby. I wasn’t a maternal woman, I loved work so much, I enjoyed every ounce of freedom, I wanted Drew to myself, I didn’t want to “ruin” my body and I required 10 hours of sleep a night... 

There were so many reasons why I worried about becoming a mom and yet this yearning came on, 5 years into marriage after we vowed we’d never have kids.

That was the start of a caption I shared just one month into motherhood. It’s how I felt before I knew how I would morph into a new version of myself, one I never imagined myself becoming. 

Maybe it’s because we waited three long years or we prepared for the worst. I realized those fears were taking up space that could have been filled with dreams. Being a mom is the BEST thing I’ve ever done and it’s stretched me in new ways.

With this episode, I want to speak to the women who want to become a mom but feel fear. My fear ran deep, too. Today I’m sharing how motherhood has changed both me and my business, and what I’ve learned that told me I never had anything to be afraid of at all.

I can picture you sitting there at your desk, glancing around those stark office walls, the ping of your email inbox echoing in your ears, and you’re thinking: There’s more for me than this.

Jane Lu was an accountant, she had a stable job in the corporate world, but after starting a business on the side she became so distracted that her work suffered. So she quit. And she didn’t tell anyone. And then her business failed. 

Now what? No job, no promise of finding another one, and no business. But now Jane is the founder of Showpo and sitting on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, on track for $200 million in sales. There’s so much between point A and point B… Actually, Jane’s story is more of a point A to point XYZ.

Jane is funny and unfiltered, and she’s sharing her story that all started with a decision to quit.

Is blogging dead?

A woman in my mastermind asked me the question at my mastermind retreat last fall. It wasn’t the first time, and over the years I tend to hear this question more and more. 

As a girl who started this entire business simply by launching a free Wordpress blog over eight years ago, it’s safe to say that I’m kind of hooked on blogging, and I get a little defensive over it because it was my baby for all of these years. 

Have you questioned if blogging is even relevant anymore? Or are you just starting a business and wondering if starting a blog is where your focus should be?

You’re not alone in wondering. Today I am sharing why blogging can have a place in your business and why it should be a priority. I’ll walk you through how to get started, how to actually make money blogging, and what goes into writing the perfect blog post that will benefit your business for years to come.

Some days you feel totally in your groove, creating absolute magic and checking things off your Big Three to-do list without hesitation. Other days you move slower and can’t seem to get out of your own way, no matter what tasks are piling up on your plate, and your inner mean girl makes you feel totally awful about it, too.

What if you could predict those days? What if you could pinpoint when you’d be in the best mental state to work creatively or when you’ll be totally in the zone, sharp, and focused? Would you even believe me if I told you… You can?

Today’s guest, Claire Baker, is a life coach… More specifically, a PERIOD coach. Claire teaches women how to live in sync with their menstrual cycle. She’ll walk us through a broader understanding of the seasons of our cycle, and then we’ll do a deep dive into working with these seasons and understanding how they impact our every day.

I could’ve talked to Claire all. day. long. If you’re ready to understand your body even better, don’t wait to tune into this episode.
