One of my goals is to really foster friendships in different ways this year. It's one of those things that the more that I have conversations about it, the more that I feel like there's so much commonality among us, and especially people who are entrepreneurial or who find themselves working from home, I think there are a lot of common threads of ways that we might be feeling or struggles we might be having, or situations we might find ourselves in that we don't often get to talk to because we don't have the friends to talk about this topic with.
So this episode is all about making friends as an adult – the who, the where, and the how (even the dating apps that could actually help you connect with new pals!)
Be honest with yourself for a moment. Is the work you’ll dedicate your time and energy to today just a j-o-b, or is it your life’s work? Do you find yourself clocking in and clocking out, collecting your paycheck, and yearning for more, regardless of the impressive titles you might have on your resume to show for it? This conversation is exactly what you need to hear.

I was recently with a ton of other leaders in our industry and the topic of building a team came up a lot and I was shocked at how complicated some of the processes were around hiring. I’m not knocking them, but they just aren’t for me. From getting agents to help find candidates to having 5 part interviews or massive requirements, it just isn’t how I do things.
People ask all of the time if we’re hiring and 99% of the time the answer is no, but we recently WERE hiring and we were able to hire two incredible new team members in under a week using our method of hiring – with a twist.
What could you do in 16 hours a week? Well, my guest today is going to share how she built and sustained a business with just that – first out of necessity but then out of desire. Shay Cochrane is a major proponent of NOT neglecting your life to be profitable. You can be a whole person while still building a successful business.
Shay’s wildly popular stock images subscription business, Social Squares, is evidence of that. Shay works just 16 hours a week so she can get back to being a human and mom and wife. Shay wants to encourage other entrepreneurs to tune out those distracting outside voices and dial into what you really want. You can do things differently, and this conversation will help you see what’s possible.

By the time Leila Hormozi was 29-years old she sold her first business for $50 million. By the age of 30, her portfolio of companies crossed $200M per year in portfolio revenue spanning brick & mortar service, licensing, education, e-commerce and more.
Those are some massive numbers. There’s no skirting that fact. But does bigger mean better? And does achieving big things = happiness? If you’ve ever achieved a big goal but found that that achievement didn’t automatically result in more happiness for you, keep listening to this conversation with Leila. I’m excited to have her on the podcast to talk about how she’s reframed what it means to be both happy and successful – honestly, the way she described it is life-changing.
Personal development has become a buzzword in the modern era, with individuals all over the world focusing on and ready to enhance themselves. The market for self-improvement products and services is booming, and it’s easy to become obsessed with the latest strategies, tactics, and techniques for personal growth.
But there’s one thing that I think keeps getting forgotten in this space where we’re challenged to learn and grow and do… it’s the PERSONAL part of developing. In this episode, we’ll discuss why it’s vital to remember that personal development is about the "personal" aspect as much as it is about the "development." In other words, it’s important to focus on the individualism of the process, rather than simply following generic blueprints.

Hiring staff, getting office space, working with more and more contractors… These are often regarded as the quote-unquote sexy parts of a business on the rise. But are those steps right for your business? Do you need them to be successful and scale your income?
In this episode, we’ll dig into what it’s like to scale back and still grow your business in a way that feels right for you. For almost two years, Olivia Herrick has been running her business as lean as possible. No contractors, she didn’t replace her studio manager, and she ditched her out of home studio space. But instead of her revenue scaling back as she scaled back her operations, she actually generated more income and learned a lot along the way.
We hear a lot of different methods that we can grow as humans, whether it’s hiring a business coach, joining a mastermind, or buying an online course, but it can be super confusing to navigate and it can also be really hard to know what the right investment is or if an investment will be worth it for you.
In this episode, we’ll talk about different ways you can be mentored throughout your journey and I’ll share my own experiences and investments – some totally worth it, others not so much – and how you can cost it out to make the best decision based on where you’re at, what your goals are, and where you want to go.
