This is what it is and I saw. I saw a picture of them at something in these dresses. They just so gorgeous and I thought why isn't that in my feed. Why isn't that instead of like the beautiful? You know you know what I'm talking about right. y'All have someone in your hand right now that you're like it's she's six feet tall tall girls small girl the other day and she is perfect and she's in my head. The images usually like a beautiful blonde. It's like Giselle Zahle. There's avs there's a but right and that's what I'm seeing and I'm thinking there's something wrong right that that comes with that and the reality is it's just because I don't have an example. Yes regularly in my head filling my head up with someone who has a body that looks like a woman's body that looks like a woman's body and so the challenge that I have to you that we talk about that day is can you fight to love yourself if as you are in the answer I've given lots of thought to this is of course yes that also means and why we came up here and we wanted to talk about this and share this as I do have to give up like never ever again saying when I get to my goal weight yes like that is a huge shit that I've never experienced. So what are you replacing it with. So what am I so I don't want it to be when I get anywhere that important. I wonder how yes so I want to be here. I want to own it right now so I want to replace it with. I do these things. I move my body thirty minutes today. I drink the stupid water you know I I plan the meals. I do these things every day no matter what and we talked a little bit about relationships and you know my husband Hobie and Hobie. I'm very lucky. I have a husband that no matter what weight I am. He thinks I'm the sexiest thing in the world. However I mean very lucky right but however I don't when when I get in my head about my weight I don't think I'm the sexiest thing? And what really ruins our sex life our intimacy. Our relationship. Asian chip is when I don't want to be intimate because I'm afraid of how I look and no matter what he thinks of me are not that yeah that is a relationship ship crusher. Absolutely right anyone ever struggle with not one eight God. Please tell me my sex life up here so super-normal freed you this all the time. I do like about wedding right now. So yeah so this Roy. Hope he's going to die so so anyway. I do think I need that. I saw it show up in my relationship for years and years and years and I realized I've got this man who loves me no no matter what I don't love myself no matter what and it's affecting so many different ways and that's when it gets scary when it starts to affect the relationships and ask an interesting question I earth office before but do you ever think so. Amy's husband is former navy seal which how bad ass right very sexy and now as the firemen stop and so I just I had this thought which is like Hopi is such a definition of like a man yes is like masculine man. I hope we're recording. I mean eleven threw him later. He's GonNa be so happy happy. You're right then you feel like on some level is there some subconscious play like. He's the man than I have to be like of low woman a million for San and I always like the man the bigger one you guys at one point. I weighed more than my husband. Like that was a hard thing in my head and again he never treated me any different. But I knew that number and I I was like mortified by it so I showed up smaller in I acted smaller in the sense of. I just didn't play full out with him. And so yes I look at him as the man I have to be the a woman in to me and my head all these years. It's like but she smaller. She's she's little she's sexier. She's quieter she's whatever. Do you ever think about what are the things that you do in your daily life because you feel like. That's what like the sexy pretty girl is supposed to do is. They're things that I do you. Yeah I'm sure such as like dress a certain way or act a certain way. And maybe you wouldn't naturally gravitate to or like so what I'm thinking of reality is our example that we always give you crap about is your heels on stage. Oh yeah so amy wears these. Like benign inch stilettos to an hour Keno. Yeah that's insanity GONNA fall worthwhile fear Yes us. Why do you wear the shoes so I wear the shoes? Because I think I look sexier in heels than I do in flats and I wear them because they feels Dell's more feminine than glad that you are becoming friends with my lesbian. So let's funding your life feel great after I was onstage. Beans sent me a pair of vans sneakers in the mail and she's like lesbians no comfort. Ah I do have them. But Yeah I have these preconceived notions in my head of what it means to be a woman. And and here's something I've never admitted but because I'm a bigger girl because I've struggled with my weight. I feel like have to overcompensate in other areas. I've gotta buy the expensive close to look good on stage. The expensive ends of shoes. I've got to have my hair a certain way because I'm overweight so I better do all these other things to make up for that and that's very exhausting. Yes yes very exhausting. So I was speaking at this event a few months ago and there was a woman on before me and I will say her name. There's there's a woman on before me and she's doing the same really beautiful and grey shot big deal and she's got these high heels on and we're backstage and we had to all all the speakers had to go from one place to another you're walking right and she's walking and she's like you know on stage. She looks like statues and beautiful and then she gets backstage. And she's like a newborn giraffe raff right and she's acting like that because she's in pain. 'cause don't don't lie you know if you just gave an hour Keno in Stilettos does your. I don't care who you are what you say. It's not comfortable for your body. So she's backstage and she's in pain and her sister runs over with a pair of converse and these aren't just like out of the box commerce these are you can tell her favorite shoes. They are beat up to how they're all worn down and she pulls off the shoes and she's like immediately like Oh thank God and she puts on her sneakers and just like our whole everything about her changes. Because she's comfortable and she's like oh those shoes.

"Me. I'm Puerto Rican will throw you under a big yellow bus in two point five seconds black. Bless you might actually be California. Get over it out. I'm GONNA do right now. Don't judge me only only picturing like US standing at my house in a bikini and that's actually not I haven't been making us and tell us okay so we knew that right. Oh girl I hailed from the school of pieces. Don't don't get don't get it twisted but sir she comes in jeans with a bathing suit and a little cover up but she's going to pull party. Of course she is. She's fancy like that fancies relate really. It's actually a beach party for a twelve year old at Bolsa Chica. Fancy is not that I will girl get right. Come at me and I will come at you with a twelve year. Old Often. The J. cracking up but this is this is happy hour which is so appropriate when we're talking about depression yes I do love this but I love all these tools. I they wanted this to be a conversation about like what did we do we. I love to follow people. That are just a little bit or a lot ahead of me. Like they've kind of figured something Athena and there's a lot of stuff we have not figured out but with this. I feel like we've worked really hard on making ourselves better and healing healing ourselves around the depression so I thought we have to talk about what we've done ads. So you talked about the therapy but there's other stuff like when we were chatting in my office you talked about the mastermind wherein that's done absolutely in. I think that people listening could say well. I don't have support a family or I don't have a supported spouse right. Don't have sport of children and that could be true and let's back up one tiny second Dr Ayman since we're serving religious. Dr Ayman has a series of questions if I have applied them and I think it has had the most profound change in my perspective this in addition to other things but if anybody's listening and be like I'm tired of hearing these girls talk. I I want to make practical. Let's get into the practicality before we actually talked about the decisions we made as a result the practicality right so when you are having a negative or overwhelming thought the first things I write it down. There is something about writing the additive stopping and writing down. It's as if it's like an exorcism it comes out of you and then you see it forces you to look at it and Dr Very specific about that so you write it down okay so you write it down and then you ask yourself. So let's use you as an example Campobasso. If you would write something on your get what would be one thing that you're struggling with okay. So they're being one hundred hundred one hundred so I would say that that. There's a lot during to think of wine if I wanted to personal or business if I did business I'd say I can't get it all done fast enough off and if I don't I'm GonNa be Irrelevant K.. That's what you read in your paper. Okay in the second question is is this true. Aw Aw love. Acquisition and instantly. I know it is not true now. There could be people listening while it could be. Because there's sometimes I have deep thought dark mark thoughts that they'll very true such as my body will not release this weight so we got personal. We talked about my weight loss. There's as I get on the scale and it has. It moved for days and days Zor a week and I think my body wants to be fat like it will it will. I cannot lose weight and that fills true some days for me. Okay if we're looking at both the situation guy. I don't move fast enough. I'm going to be irrelevant. Yeah I am destined to remain this way. Yes and if we were to ask ourselves. Is this true and in even if you responded committee in the third question to ask yourself is am I a hundred percent certain of my response. Oh my gosh so right away it away right right away. Yeah it's no because we are not fortunetellers. We don't know with certainty if we are destined to be relevant over destined to be overweight. We don't know that right and then once we answer that then we know. How does it make me feel? How does let's just focus on business right okay? How does being irrelevant feel to you? It makes me feel small. It makes me feel scared. It makes me feel like I'm not enough. I'm less than or I'm good enough. And and once you and this is all written and once you see that. Do you think that those feelings will keep you from the purpose you have been sent here on the world. Yes and Yes yes last question. What would feeling the opposite of this? Like what if you were to look at that day. I'm going to be irrelevant. I'm not moving fast enough. We feel the negative emotions. What if you were to say I am moving at the right pace? I will always be relevant for a group of people. It would make me feel grounded in secure her and confident and excited or on the projects. I'm working on a these questions are good. We will certainly be listened them in the show notes. Stand okay so now. This is something I learned from. Our mastermind organizer Mentor Unicorn. James we are not our thoughts. He reminds me of that all the time. That the things things that we think are not us. They're just our thoughts so if we were to look at a piece of paper based on this like walking through from Dr Ayman we can choose to feel a relevant and lost and like things are passing. Are we choose to feel grounded and hopeful insecure. The choice is hours it takes just as much energy to feel fearful as it does decide I choose faith in setting Zion. This okay this is exactly you what I work on every single week with my weight loss coach and I think this is what has moved me so I love that. We're both are on the same. I didn't even know that you were diving into questions like that but I just realized this is exactly why I've been feeling so good lately is because I examined that like every day every day and what happens is people that I don't have time like I'm I'm in the car pool line. I'm at the grocery store. I have two jobs. I have a side hustle. When might you just walk diarrhea and like writing my issues down like a luxury? Listen booboo you do not take care curve yourself. There are a line of people who need you. So if you're in that car pool line you need to pull on over and you say baby. You'RE GONNA wait thirty seconds just got do this real quick. If you're at the grocery along you bring your phone you write it all down and then you ask yourself in this moment. I choose to feel what that has been the most profound difference in how I look at everything now. Do I think that I have the capacity to move through depression as a result of this process. No do I believe with all all of my heart that I have the capacity to change an expedite the process as a result of this hell. Yes Hell yes is right. I want to point now. You just reminded me of this when we were talking about it earlier. You brought up. Brunei Brown's Gold Plated Grit Grit JAP now with first of all with goldplated grit. If I came up for me when I called you to tell you I wanted to do an episode about my weight but I was scared to do cells and I thought that was a little bit mean to you. You were like you're doing it and you're telling the story about how you a lot of cupcake's that we're your size for his birthday. That was probably the hardest part of that push. Kevin Love. You do push me in love so with that though. I told Jasmine I said I don't WanNa do this episode about my weight and for those of you who haven't heard it. It was a while ago. I can and linked to it in the show notes. But I didn't WanNa do it because at the time I hadn't started losing weight I wasn't on a weight. Loss journey didn't have any tools to help me at the time so I had nothing to give in that moment except the truth that I don't like doing video because I am overweight. And that is embarrassing to me. That's all I had had to give in that episode. And you said that's enough and you brought up this gold plated grit so first of all we you tell people what that means. Because I don't do a good job explaining it but second. It came up when I asked you to talk about some of this. So Bernie Brown. She is like basically our best friend she never know a and you love her. Here's the thing I wonder. Why are your house not mine? Your House is way more show ready. Let's be like I was like Brennan. Welcome to my my house. Come into my closet. Her love her voice. She's an amazing and she's from Texas. Yes without. She's like y'all and she could say just so like Zola's a lot about words and I love that but coming from her. They're they're almost like sacrosanct regularly. Oh look how sweet bless her heart. Okay so she talks about gold plated grit and gold plated. Great is our ability to talk about things after. We've already accomplished them so how easy it is for us just to diminish how hard is situated was when we can just say l.. Guys I went on this journey I lost one hundred pounds and and this is how I did it. What we do by keeping our story to ourselves is inadvertently protecting ourselves protecting our ego? We do not want to be vulnerable because the minute you say. I'm on a weight loss journey all of a sudden. You give people immigration to watch you when you're out dinner right when you decide to have Glass of wine in so gold plated. Grit is talking about something. In retrospect in the thing that encouraged amy to do which would come back to haunt want me to today I was GONNA show up. You don't have to have the solution you just have to. I admit it and so when you invited me to come to the show I was just like oh no I'm not passed it. I cannot talk about it and I thought to myself. Oh Good God. Woman gives the advice you need to listen to and so this is me talking through it and now it's on tape and I. I hope that if not next year in eighteen even if it takes me ten years that I can look at this can say this was the first time it was very public and open about what the journey looks like from the inside. I truly truly hope so and I love that you shared it even though you might be still going through it in different ways. And I'm so very glad jasmine that you have come on the show and talked to all the bus about it because this is exactly what I wanted. I wanted a conversation around it and I think that's exactly what we got now. I also want to wrap things up with some resources in some tools to help anybody listening right now to find the support that they need but also jasmine. You have something really cool that you actually wrote about about this on instagram. I did did and I was kind of debating whether or not I would bring it up but I think you know we can always edit. It doesn't work okay. Okay so I think that I WANNA make sure standards at testament that when you ask for help you actually get it and when you talk to people actually arrive in ways you don't expect so so this was opposed to that. I wrote on June ninth and this was shortly after the passing of Kate spade and simply Dane and I just knew that I was in a funk and I knew that I felt like if I was feeling this way probably other phillies way and unbeknownst to me that when I open myself up people not only to support and help. They started reaching out and connecting with others. But but it also been the opportunity for any to invite me onto this show so whenever you feel like you are not enough you are and whenever you feel like you need help you can always ask for it so do nine.

"Talk to me about that so I would sit there for hours and then I would drive. How I it's so true? Do a little rain dance. Yeah that cargo the so you need the friends who will do the rain dance with you to make the clouds go away. I mean how perfect is that it is true and so those are some of the tools that I used. I wanted to share them with you because I told Jasmine I want to talk about how we got to a better place. We're not perfect. It's not totally gone but we are both in better places than we were with depression so I wanted to talk about how we got there so I actually love that because I feel like it's just encouragement for for what I am currently working through so all of those four main points you articulated or things that I am still doing so in light of a full disclosure. I have come a very long way and I look forward to the day that I can be just like amy and say it has been a thing that I have worked through and it is a thing that my pass pass. I am not quite there yet. I do struggle with it. I have come a long long long way a first steps and this and they just want to be make sure that I'm very open and super super respectful. I have to understand that my parents are immigrants. America is different how we navigate. Conversations is different in so I don't think they ever stigmatized the idea. Hi Dear of speaking to a therapist but they meet very very upper-class in so for people who aren't from California Kelvin is very segmented and it's admitted by county and so my parents it's L. A.. Through and through lake go Thatcher's that's my dad. Okay so when I told my parents go Thatcher's Eh. Okay so what. I told my dad that I really wanted that. I was going to start. Seeing a therapist holds up his pinky finger. Orange County Your Soldi Cownie Oni. And it was a joke it or as my dad says yoke okay so it was a joke. It was a joke but I think that it was a difficult conversation relation to have like. What does it mean because my whole childhood we had a groceries donated on the porch and we rode the bus to church? And so this idea of paying somebody he to cure you talk was foreign is like literally a flying pig and so I felt like what I realized I had to make. A hard decision was that I cannot expect. Act Anybody in my life to accept the responsibility to walk me through a very difficult path. So if you feel like you don't have that person that's okay your next objective would be to take the responsibility to find people in your life now. I will say that my husband is my best friend in just foundation and he is so good and he is so kind and he listens however. I also don't think that my husband should be a therapist. That's a great the point and I've had the luxury I think that's phenomenal but I also do think that I really wanted to have like a clear distinction and I'm just like Taipei. I'm very pig headed and I'm like well. Do you have a degree. So that was the first step so hearing that you found a great therapist and it's a big difference friends and there was a really really really dark time in my life and those are on Two Thousand Fifteen where. I knew that I had nowhere to go like. I was just rock bottom and I have nobody to talk to. I am just. I'm strung out like my heart. My soul feels those broken and so the minute. I found a therapist initially. I didn't think he was all that great. But I told myself and I tell people were looking for therapists is to be fair to yourself and to be fair to them and that would give him at least three opportunities of that. Because I feel like every therapist I've ever been to. I did not love them. We'll it's like you're literally going on a blind date right right and you know therapists websites are terrible. They basically need to go through one of our trainings to be like guys. You got a brand yourself. A student that he helps therapists with websites. It's because they're so god bless him terrible they literally say nothing so you kind of go in is literally a blind date and so I didn't really like vibe with all that much in the first time but he said Hey. My Rule of three three the second time he came around the third time was when he's just started kind of just like itemizing asking questions after the note that he takes. I'm seeing a pattern in the story that you're telling the wait you're talking and I was like okay. Let's go for meeting number four and then I had stayed with him for about three years in throughout that time when I was in a really really bad place that I felt that as a business expense I needed to get help. I couldn't keep running at that pace and so I met with him once a week. Doc for about six months and then from there started meeting every other week every three weeks once a month and that was the first step and then I just started taking the time in in my life and my business to start doing research like I needed to understand so I once heard this analogy when you break a bone you get an x ray and they find out. What's wrong with your bone than if you have a tumor? They ah or scan and banned it but if you go into your doctor and you say I'm sad like something's wrong with in my head. What what is done with that and I started doing research and I came across Dr here actually you Dr Ayman and he wrote a book and I think it's like a change your brain change your life of love? I love him. Oh I thought it was Ayman well. Here's the thing if you're religious it's because to me he's like Amen. Yes this man and then other people who are like agnostic. uh-huh Ahmed I'm just getting. I actually don't know the exact right right just like so really his book with like his book was Scientific Ryan's if proof. After years and years and years studying the brain is like the thoughts we have impact our break. They literally have a physical manifestation. If you think negative thoughts your your brain reacts to the negative thoughts and gives out physical manifestations of your thoughts it is no longer speculative it is just the truth and and so he had said that every morning he starts the date and he says today's going to be a great day and our brains are hard-wired to listen so it may create a distinction Asian the mind in the brain or two different things. This is you lost me. What do you mean so the mind is in control? Yeah and the brain is an Oregon. Okay so when you understand your mind you can control your organs so when you say your minds as I'm going to have a great day your brain then says yes. Yes Sir right away captain. We're GONNA make that happen. It's hardwired to listen. So if we have control of our mind and this is not like a feel good. Everything's going to be happy. Happy Hunky Dory. No this is literally the very first step that you can do also heard that when I'm Stein will go up. He would say thank you a hundred times before we got tab not as so good that actually makes emotional because Agu in all you do in every morning I put my hand on my heart and he thank you thank you okay. It's just because when you wake up and you think you just see the gratitude and Gosh Dang it. There are some really hard days but when you say I have a roof over my head I have have something in my refrigerator. have gas my car. We are literally the one percent when we say those three things. We're the one percent of the world and I think even even on the dark days you realize that we are just so so so lucky to be where we are and if we could find a glimmer of that silver lining already taking a step forward so real quick. Am I just making this lake. The is just happy hour. Jasmine Lake basically is like. We're getting drunk on sparkling water. y'All forgot to tell you she's also in a leading to.

I'm one of the few entrepreneurs out there that really sure if i've ever figured out what my passion it is although i really liked to teach topics in areas of expertise in i love to teach my students get in there and be your how to get the big results. So what lights you up. What could you talk about all day. Long wasn't important ingredient because when things get tough and sometimes they do when you create or six time effort band witch inch when it's a little bit ri- your member actually really liked teaching topics implied through and i'm gonna continue on so those are the four once again your skillset. It'll set know how your audience struggles winston desires the prophet essential and then ultimately what makes you i love that because is on our so our listeners our audience their health coaches fitness professionals nutritionist so anything about health wellness fitness. That likes likes them up but i know they have to dial in figure out what very one specific thing that is. We had a health coach where she was going. Through the same process in ended ended up she loved hacking poobah so he's the digestive wellness expert and it she you could just like she beams with the excitement and like bingo there. You can get to talk about coup ball yeah and it was like instantaneous. She filled oliver coaching spots is she dialed in on that. It was like no anyone game so that makes total sense when we've actually worked with many clients that have it. It feels almost like they're trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. When it comes to course creation they're trying to honestly like forecast what the next thing is going getting to be instead of following these four quadrants that you described and it's almost backwards in i imagine that's why they feel like they're such a struggle in their worst <unk> process. Would you agree with that. Oh yeah that makes perfect sense. It's it's when you go about it in the way. That doesn't feel really truly you what your audience wants. There's there's going to be back disconnect. Mary obvious there's a difference between this isn't bidding versus a lot of work in there all day for a lot of work again. This isn't any <unk>. Look at those four quadrants for sure yeah. That's definitely <hes> the perfect. It is the sweet spot. It really really is so that's the the perfect lead into what will be talking about next because you are going to walk us through the five strategies to choose the perfect course topics so let's divan. We'll we'll take the strategies one at a time sharing what they are and how if you could tell everyone how they could put those into action. Does that sound good yet so strategy number. One is a days of no judgment inspiration. So can you tell us what that is and then had his action on that yeah so i often tell my students that i want you to spend. This is perfectly start. I think everybody should do this flat. You spend three days starting now until until three days where you grab literally a journal. I've got one right here and you grab your journal. I'm talking paper and pen. I feel like there's something magic about the metal school way of doing it and every time you have an idea that comes up for you jot it down good bad ugly no <unk> judgment any idea that pops up you write it down human the reason for this is actually have more ideas than you think you do and as you navigate through the day a and you get something done. It just comes natural to you. Write that down and as you think about what you've done in the past got to where you are related to the message out growth growth. Write it down everything big small in in between and the reason for this. Is you wanna live your senses with like. I got some things in the i know it's is there even if one of the i._b._m. <unk> seems so far ox right down so we're gonna use this list for some of the other strategies..

But it sounds a little different. Can you tap your mic? You are. You are using your might maybe maybe a little closer. Yeah. Okay. It we got your little bit nervous about doing the center Twi. You make me to be quite honest, because you ask questions, sometimes that I know you wanna go deeper and I know you wanna get to the root of it, and I just I have all the answers you want, but bunny enough, you and I were at a lunch about a year or so ago. And we were all talking around the table. You asked my integrator like a project manager khloe question. And we still joke about how intense the question was, how she was like a deer in the headlights. Now I don't even remember the question, but she's like, oh, you're talking to Andrew good luck today. I wonder what that was what actually I was going to reach out to Chloe looked up on Lincoln had a sense of how to contact her. And then I said, you know what? That's a step too far for this. I know where I wanna go with it. But I do that a lot because I wanna really like MAC. I don't know. I'm just naturally curious thing here, a great interviewer. So I'd love it. And I'm nervous about it. But let's just do it. Your website says that you are seven figures, can you be open about what the revenue is right now Amy, yes? So so far this year, we're at about five million in revenue for this year. Yes. Selling what what's the courses? Digital course academy is a course where his so meta it I teach how to create a digital course and had a launch that digital course with webinars using live launching strategies. And so it's everything nuts and bolts step-by-step how to do it. So that's my big signage course. At the nine also have an evergreen course, meaning it's an automated webinar that runs every single day. And that's list builders lab in. That's where I teach how to build your Email list. And I start with that one that one's three ninety seven so it's cheaper. Program than my bigger one, which is two thousand dollars. And it's a great place to start the conversation. Anybody who wants to grow business online, typically needs to have an Email list, and I can't do a good job of teaching the big strategies. If you don't start with that list on nation. So that's why I have that program to start and how do people find out about you? What's like the, the first step that a stranger would go through to know about Amy Porterfield? It's either you see an ad on Facebook, Instagram about my list building. Course or new CNN had about my podcast or someone recommended my podcast. So usually my evergreen webinar or my podcast is high..

If you don't know what a funnel is, a funnel is how you take somebody from when they first find you to the next step to the next step to eventually a purchase decision of some kind. Hopefully a customer is what they become a evergreen sales funnels. One that happens automatically set things up ahead of time so that that progression happens automatically. What Amy saying there is that wall. It's not as oughta Matic as some may make it out to be. So we're gonna get deep into whatever green is Adam make it work. How Amy's been doing with. Some of the pluses and minuses the pros and cons of it in which you can do, whether you already have a business or not. This is a great way to start thinking. It's like, I remember when I read the four hour workweek by Tim Ferriss like I didn't even have a business yet back in two thousand eight, but it was inspiring because it showed me the right way to go about it. And then when I finally built my business, I had built it in a way such that it was mostly automated based on what I learned from Tim. Now we're talking about not just sales funnels, but evergreen sales funnels. And even if you don't have a business will be very helpful. All you have to do two things. Number one hits subscribe.

Thank you so much for joining me in session three hundred and thirty five of the smart passive income podcast, very thankful to have one of my best friends here in the online space who is also with me in San Diego's. Well, we get coffee every once in a while. I really wanted her to come back on the show to talk about this because I noticed that Amy had switched from a lot of live launches, which is where you kind of have to work to have a launch period between a certain amount of time. And it takes a lot of effort and work, which is what I'm doing right now. Mostly although we are starting to experiment with evergreen. I don't know much about it yet and what do I do when I don't know much about something I talked to as many experts who have done that thing before, and that's exactly why we have these experts like Amy here on the show to not just share with me, but share with you all the things we need to know before we dive in and go full force with it. So without further ado, let's bring on Amy Porterfield from Amy Porterfield dot com. And the online marketing made easy podcast. Here she is Amy, welcome back to the SPA podcast..

"Yourself. James Webb more Amy Porterfield that I've had the blessing to be able to. Interview on the podcast as well as all my clients and myself. Hands down, slowing down to work on who you are as an entrepreneur, and who you wanna be stepping into the thinking and the actions of a upper six or seven figure entrepreneur is the number one thing that actually allows you to get there. And it's it's hard for us because it's not. It doesn't feel like a tick the box kind of thing in terms of building your mindset. But if you don't do it, then you're going to be that hamster on a hamster wheel always feeling like you're so busy, but growth will literally stop on you and you won't be able to move forward. You know, it's interesting. I don't know if those of you listening know this. I have a high level coaching slash mastermind program called the PI celebrator and it was only released to those who were on my Email list who are at that level. So a lot of you probably have never heard of that, but it's it's called the i. accelerated program. It's been running for several months now Shannon year in there, and it's great and. The community, and there's awesome somebody in the group had said the other day, you know, I know you call this the exhilarated program, but actually what you're helping us dues, D.C, celery. And that's just like you said it perfectly lines, and these are people who are at that level to the the way to grow is too slow. And I just made that up by the way, kind of like. Slow to grow. No, to grow anyway. Right now, but it's so true and I think. What got you here won't get you there. But we are so used to doing the things that got us here. How and you have a background in psychology. How do we, how do we even begin to to to slow down when like I think it's easy just to say, oh, yeah, that makes sense. But when you actually have to do that. It's one of the hardest things to do, and I know for my own personal experience to what can we do, how can we better execute on slowing down? How do we know what to slow down to trust their I? So one of the things I really want you to hear is that a lot of times we think about doing, you know that this kind of mindset work, we think of it is kind of this out there like it's like floating cloud like, you can't quite get your hands around kind of woo. And if you like the thing then great. But for me, I'm I'm like a type a. like lists. I, I wanna know there's a process behind things and that's why I took it. You know, I was had high level mentors. I studied their lives, but it still wasn't enough. And so that's why ended up going on and getting my PHD in neuro psychology. It's borderline obsessive, but I really wanted to understand. Neurologically speaking, what's different about people who have this high level of success, whether it be an entrepreneur, even enough lettuce, and some of my clients are athletes as well. And they have a way of thinking that is different from somebody who is is not at that level and what's different in. It's really intriguing to know. I think very freeing to know is everything that they have. You can have you actually have the capacity right now because the way your brain is wired, it is wired for automation and it's wired for efficiency. It's by far the most amazing system in tool.
