Understanding CBD with Mike and Angie Lee - 569

"Was what's going on. Cd That's what we're talking about today on the Shailene show. I'm super happier here. I bet like many people you to have wondered about the efficacy of CBD. Is it safe? Can It really do all the things that people promise it can do? Is it something that you should be taking? And what do we need to know about? Quality is illegal. Is it safe for children? Is it safer? Pets will be answering all of these questions and more today on the selene. Show with my special guests. Mike and Angie Lee the founders of soul CBD. Once I started getting deep into integrative health one of the things I realized pretty early on is that there are alternatives to the things that we think of her medication and specifically ways to reduce inflammation. I mean when we look disease. Implementation is at the root of almost every preventable disease. That were dying from today. And I think that's going to answer a lot of questions for you when as I'm sure like me. You hear all these kind of crazy claims about what we can do for you. And you know if you're a little bit of a skeptic as we all should be you have to think all right wait. How's it possible that this one medicinal plant can be added to my smoothie in the morning for energy or can take it at night to help me sleep or I can use it to improve my ability to focus or my ability to relax. How is it that this can help with epilepsy or seizures anxiety depression in pain? Like what is this miracle compound? It just sounded too good to be true so I started digging into the research to really kind of it further. I want to know I mean how much do we know about the human use of CBD and what are the differences the different types of CBD is there CBD with Thc? Is there one? That's more efficient more effective than another. How is it that they impact the nervous system? Is there a psycho active element? What is the difference in quality? What do I need to know about the qualities of CBD? How do you dose? Cbd is a CBD them taking for my dog not that I'm taking them giving to my dog the same exact CBD that I'm taking or I'm ingesting but just in a different former with a different flavor what roles have on my para sympathetic system. What role does it have on our sympathetic system? How does it impact the Endo cannabinoid system all of these questions? I had and I knew that the people I needed to speak to where the founders of soul CD which are Angie and Mike Lee. Who you'll be hearing from in just a moment but before. I get to that I just want to say this is just my own personal opinion. We do need to see more research but until recently human trials were all but banned based on the research that we do have there is tremendous science that proves the effectiveness of treating some really pretty gnarly childhood epilepsy syndromes and other symptoms including studies for Insomnia and chronic pain. In fact a study from the European Journal of pain show that using an animal model again. Cd applied to the skin actually helped to lower pain and inflammation due to Oth- rightist so there's some really promising science surrounding CB but there's also a lot of really bogus companies out there producing inferior CB products. We're GONNA talk about all of that and so much more with my guests today. Now Mike and Angie Lee are siblings which is a story in and of itself MIC is. Will you hear his story on the show?

So the audience if you listened to previous up. So you've met Angie in the past I'm gonNA linked to previous episodes. We've done with her in our show notes. And we'll talk to angie to but I really WanNa to start Mike with your story as a kid understand. That's when you fell in love with boxing. Can you tell us a little bit about your journey? We I mean for in my freshman career. I was kind of known as likely the boxer but now lately I'm Mike Lee Angie Lee's brother. It's changed as urged tribe and audience grown in this all. Be More proud of her her. But I'll give you a little background on my story in how Angie and I got involved in business and more particularly how involved. Boxing is started fighting about eight years old. Our Father Stuck. We hit boxing ring guests a twelve year old. I got my butt kicks. I hated it. I'll never forget going to the bathroom crying in the mirror and the I'm never boxing again but I got the Itch and I remember my dad coming in and saying I've never been more proud you my life and at that time I honestly think instinctually something clicked in me in because he told me he was proud of me that I didn't quit that first session. I got my butt kid. I got knocked down but I went all three rounds as a little kid. I could've quit and I didn't and so I think since day one. That type of ideology was instilled in me and made me the athlete. I was so fast for two years later I started fighting all over the world in amateur tournaments from sixteen to eighteen to twenty years old and then right before I graduated college my head offers to turn pro and I got signed by top rank which is arguably the best promotional company team in the world. So for me. It's like getting a call for New York Yankees so at the age of Twenty One. I turn pro and I went for you know instead of getting into business. Finance mother things. I was interested in my passion. My dream was to become a world champion and I knew no matter what weather I lose my first fight and break my hand in never fight again or I've become a world champion. I knew that I had to go for it. I knew that I wanted to be a hundred years old laying on my deathbed in not having regrets and not wondering what it so. We signed the contract and it was a wild ride. I got to find some of the greatest arenas in the world Auden Madison Square Garden Stadium and back home in Chicago in front of thousands and millions on TV. And at one point I was twenty six years old. That was twelve now. Undefeated on top of the world feeling invincible on right before my thirteenth fight. I started getting really sick. I started getting back pain. I was getting headaches getting chronic fatigue. Mine Tire Museum was shutting down meals as we cancel the next upcoming by and I spent the next two years in and out of hospitals. Battling later found out wasn't autoimmune disease so out of the ring it was. The darkest loneliest most depressing times in my life. I was in significant pain and not only in pain and trying to figure out how to get healthier but really not being able to do what I love. I remember sitting in hospital beds and literally looking at you know fights commercials mine on TV and digging myself. If they only knew a type of condition I was in so at my lowest along my rock bottom. I was on a medications. You know they could not figure out what's going on. I was on anti anxiety antidepressant completely did to the painkillers. Angie was right there with me Angie and I have been very close since day. One next still remember coming those hospital rooms when I was at my lowest lowest moments and her cheering me up as your audience probably knows energias. When goofiest kindness human beings ever so I remember specifically one time those in my twelfth day straighten hostile and she came in in a Darth vader costume. Out OF NOWHERE. Just to make me laugh in. Cheetahs doesn't realize how big that moment was for me. I I remember that moment so clearly like it was yesterday because that type of like hope in happiness instilled a different mentality me and I went from you know those eight medications all the way down to zero. Because I woke up one day and I said I have to take my health into my own hands. Another prescription medication is not the answer for me. So I started diving into books on personal development and nutrition on health reading books by Dr. Jonas Benza. Tony Robbins Viktor Frankl. I became obsessed with getting healthier. Mike Lemme ask you. There's so much I wanNA dig into the first thing I want to ask you about. Is The depression the starting to feel? How much do you think played into the fact that because it's auto immune 'cause I know for so many you camp present something that's physical and you begin to believe because they aren't able to identify what's going on? I just know something's wrong and I'm having all these weird conditions. But you have nothing like physical. Say Like your x Ray this arm or let's take this bloodwork to determine what impact is going on in you. Start to wonder I have to imagine. Is this psychosomatic is in my head. How much did that your mental state? That's a great point that really affected my mental state because getting so discouraged going from doctor to doctor because as most you know. Millions of people have autoimmune diseases. I think on average it takes three to four years to get Diagnosed because exactly like you said you show so many different types of symptoms. But it's tough to dial in exactly what's wrong and then have a plan of attack exit at the end of the day. Is it the chicken or the egg? Would I really believe in is that I did get sick? But then my mind exacerbated things. I know firsthand fascist auto immunity that when you're depressed when your stress when you are costly in that fighter flight it negatively affects your immune system your nervous system. And we've proven that now study so for me it was. It started with a sickness but ben once I started getting major anxiety and depression. It only made things worse. It's so true it's that not knowing that can create more anxiety and it's a natural human response to go to the worst possible case scenario. You know I've talked to friends. Before who were also experiencing autoimmune like symptoms and going from doctor to doctor to doctor and you just eventually go to the. Is this cancer. Do I have a brain tumor? Am I dying and playing sad songs in your car and just you can spiral because you don't know once you do know it really can lift that. Having that fog the feel and for you. I assume the your goal was to return to boxing. Right in your on all these medications which have an impact on your health and also assume that there's drug testing in boxing. So how did you or was that a part of your plan was like I've got gotta find something natural because I still want to be able to compete in the sport. Yes I mean. That was a huge part of it and I think if anything I wanted to find something natural because I felt like at the time allow the doctors are seeing were just prescribing. More medication. Which was giving me really bad side effects so you know I was on Humira for years and injecting myself with that and getting really bad skin rashes and I felt like it was a snowball of side effects in listen. Western medicine has done incredible things and for emergency cases or certain times it has its time in place so I don't want to say that was the cause of a lot of issues I had but I knew in my heart and my gut that I needed to find natural ways molly 'cause I do get drug tested for my sport but it was something in my gut in my mind. My intuition told me that I needed start to see functional. Medicine Doctors nutritionist. People that were gonNA look at this more holistically and really come about it that way versus another medication and you know my instinct was right. I know a big part of your healing is to take an integrative approach. You changed your nutrition. You changed your thinking you've changed your mindset and you change the way that you are healing your body from a medicinal standpoint. How did that lead to you exploring CBD and did you look to other forms of natural medications? Yeah I looked at a lot. I think you know anytime you're paying. You're always gonNA look for solutions to get out of it so for me. I knew I just couldn't give up site. I wanted to turn over every rock and a few years back this was about. Maybe two thousand sixteen finally started getting maybe a little bit earlier. Accidents are really getting into see me be randomly. A friend of mine was like. Hey listen I know you're going through these issues? Maybe you should try it out. First thing I said was I get drug tested. I can't do that. I don't know what this is. I was kind of ignorant to the hemp plant versus the marijuana plant and he really informed me that knowledge zero. The won't get high. It's all activated system that we can get into more details that but so I started trying it out in the first thing that helped me with was anxiety and I slowly but surely wasn't overnight but are slowly but surely started leading off by anti anxiety medications and my antidepressants and was it. End All be all no but it was a huge piece of the puzzle for me. And that's when I started diving in and then next thing you know I called the G. and I was like we need to turn not only turns new business. We need to share this. We need to spread this out because I love it and you know. We started visiting him fields and it just started taking off. I was blown away. That something that grows on this planet earth can help so many people with so many different things and he gave me a lot of hope. Well Angie certainly has a tribe that looks to her for the not just business and marketing advice but also health and I think that's one of the reasons why we connect it's because we just want people's lives to be better and that might mean being your own boss and making your own rules and living your purpose but it also means taking care of yourself like honoring your health and so I know that's such a big piece of who she is. Angie were you already experimenting with CBD Like Talk To me about like how the two of you came together to share this mutual interest. Yeah at the time. I was experiencing a lot of anxiety and I had my first full blown panic attack at twenty three twenty four years old. That was really really frightening and so similar it's interesting. Mike and I were kind of on a similar timeline where I had a friend who mentioned CBD to me had no idea what it was. I was very holistic at the time so it was open minded but I didn't know what it was and I was taking. Tvd droppers for my anxiety. So I was using it for diety while Mike was using it for pain and all the issues that he was experiencing and then he called me one day and that's when he said. Hey let's make this business so it's crazy that we both were using it pretty much around the same year and then came together and now it's business now. What is it this is for either of you that made you realize this needs to be a business and this is something we need to do together. Obviously there are lots of people I mean we can get into that to how muddy the waters have gotten. I think that's really important for my listeners. To know about but so what is it about this product and about the two of you and your journey and that you both have suffered from anxiety. What is it about that that made you believe this thing that we need to do this? There's a million other businesses. The two of you could do together. Yeah I feel like for us and I'll let you touch on this to Mike. I feel like Mike and I almost are at least for me. And similarly usually I love creating solutions to problems and as a natural promoter and someone who wants to share things. If I'm not obsessed with it it's difficult for me to despair about it so for me every great businesses. I come from Mike and I just loving it ourselves and knowing how many people need this and how many people don't know about it. I think we saw was like a like a hole in the market. Where a lot of these? Cbd brands were in it just for the marketing aspect and they were fully integris and to know that. Mike. I truly started this to help. People and to share. Especially Mike's Incredible story of what he's gone through. I mean that is amazing right. It's my blowing and so I think for us. We knew we were starting at for the right reasons versus. Hey let's see if we can make money in this but we're not using ourselves. Yeah I think that's the best way to put it really for me going through so much pain maybe an impasse in mean apathetic person. I never had that character with before the pain in that way to pain was a gift and I knew that I wanted to help people. I wanted to share this message because I saw. How many people were gus for need? And how many people's health was struggling in for? Angie I mean you know NGOs well you see you're on stage. She helped so many women and you know she starts crying onstage. She'll cry when she reads testimonials that we get from sociology city. So for her. She wants to connect with humans and help people in s where we came. We came from an obsession to Malaise. Spread the word but to help people because both of us had gone through so much pain. And when you do that and go through that type of pain you've new motivation to help other human beings get out of that pain and so I think that's really where it started from with anytime you're starting a business. Specially is competitive oversaturated. Cbd is you're coming at it from the nose and PNL side. How much money can I make? You're never gonNA succeed so for us. We knew there was an area where we could be. The face of the company and people could directly reach out to us can ask US questions in CR journey in our authenticity. And I mean when I think of Angie right away. Authenticity is the first word I think of. So yeah those kind of the Genesis of the brand would you assume or would you say maybe summarize the reason why the two of you decided that there was this need in the market was because there weren't companies over paying as much attention to the integrity of the product. And I guess let's elaborate on that. What does that mean for the two of you? Yeah I mean. It's a great question. What people need to understand where they're products coming from what it is because that was our initial issue you know. We didn't know where companies were sourcing from what type of products they were using. If it was organically source you know all the little details and so for us we dove and we knew that was in Armenian. Sason reputation is on the line here so we wanna make sure about that. You believe it so for us. We actually visiting feels visiting the Farms. We partner with in on all earned calls and making sure that all the sourcing is available. So you know one thing that's really important in. The world is certificates of analysis. We like to show right on our website every single products in batch number. Exactly what is inside of that third party lab tested certificate of analysis? Does that actually cost more for sure? But we're not sourcing chief see me or ingredients from overseas. That could have pesticides in it. That could have other. You know toxic elements in it so off making sure the purity and quality here in the United States. All of our sourcing is done and met it out thoroughly with this third party lab testing that transparency is right there on the website and in all our marquis. That was so important to us. Because you know I'm sending this to my mom my dad my friends and they're ingesting it. I need to know that that I trust it and I think that's Psalm. Boardman fortunately because of the lack regulation that's a rarity industry and glide. You mentioned that that lack of regulation is the real problem and it's one of the reasons why. Cbd's get lumped into one big category and there are so many differences differences in the way that you can ingested differences in the way that it's manufactured and where is manufactured and the fact that you do third party lab testing is is really powerful. I think one of the other challenges I know for me when I first are looking into. Cbd is of course. I'm skeptical right and I I skeptical of taking any supplement before I really started to understand why my body needed things that it was already producing right so we produce a degree of cannabinoid in our body. Is that correct? Yes so what happens is. Cd ACTIVATES THE ENDO CONNIVANCE system and without getting into a boring science class. Camels having cabinet system all humans. Do and what it really does. Would you body in stasis so we regulate your nervous system helps inflammation it helps with sleep? It has so many different properties that can help. Mishandled can avenue system which we know has been around for years and years and so. That's why you're seeing people get such good effects than even seeing dogs and cats with you know pet line. Cd Blend doing well on top of that. But it's something that a plant that's been around thousands of years the hemp plant and it's a cannabinoid that has helped you being struck thousands of years and so similar to the prohibition era with alcohol. I really see this new movement of cannabis in have as we come into twenty twenty hundred years later that all this is being lifted. You're starting to see that people are realizing specially. Cd that does not get you high. There's no psychoactive elements to it is something that's only helping people with no toxic and that's one thing. I do want to say that I'm really impressed. With see me has no toxicity levels so basically what that means is you can't overdose on it and why that's important is you walk into a CVS or walgreens today you pick up a bottle of tylenol you been overdosing die on it. You taking higher bottles. So knowing that it's state plant is sourced properly is really important too. I'm reading from the US National Institutes of Health in laboratories a study from two thousand fourteen. Were they said? Endo cannabinoid system activity may have therapeutic potential and almost all disease affecting humans to me. That's pretty powerful but it also makes me think how is that possible like all disease affecting humans. How is that possible? And that was one of my initial scepticisms when I started researching. Cd How does it work? You hear these claims like it can reduce pain. It can improve memory help with appetite. Stress Reduction Sleep improved mood. Immune function how is it possible? Something can do all those things so explained to us. The impacted has on our nervous system. Yeah well as I mentioned earlier when it's actively endo can insists I'm you have different receptors cd one CD two receptors. But why it's having so many different effects for different people is because for instance let me give one example of inflammation we know that inflammation causes so many different types of elements diseases autoimmune. In my case you know everything from knee. Pain to systemic autoimmune condition so whether or not that inflammation or that stresses caused from your mental state or something inside of your body at the end of the day your whole bodies connected we know firsthand that when you reduce inflammation in a safe way. It has a trickle down effect of helping so much. Not just that need pain. You have from the run but also helping your digestive system. We know now that the God has huge implications on the brain in the gut. Brain connection is massive and we reduce that inflammation in the gut. It helps you absorb nutrition. Better helps you in so many the levels so really what it does is it helping the endo can avance system and the nervous system specifically calmed down and reduce inflammation when that happens. We're seeing kind of a beautiful trickle. Down effect to so many other aspects in chronic conditions. There different ways that you can formulate thc. I'd like to talk a little bit. About how or what? Some of the common misconceptions are about the psychoactive elements of CBD and perhaps maybe even also society is different. And you know if you have plans to get into the CBD THC arena. Tell us a little bit about or dispel some of those myths for us. If you can angie I that that's a question you get a lot from your audience and I. I assume that something that people have been are listening. Have a concern. That is their cycle active. Element is it safe to get us to my children. That's interesting. I love the fact that we are one. Hundred percent pure isolate slit zero. Thc because then we can ensure that everyone from stay at home. Moms nurses people who are tested. Athletes are guaranteed to pass their drug tests. And I love that. But I also know that there are a ton of medicinal benefits to combining. Thc IN CBD and that synergistic relationship between them. So it's hard. Because I know me and Mike you can speak to even more on this. I know people who are in a lot of pain guy think it can be beneficial to have a little bit of THC now. I know there's someone listening to this. Who that might be scary to hear because of the paradigm of okay. Thc Make you high and all these things but again we decided to stay just CBD right now but it could be something maybe potentially down the road we get into. It's a completely different business model with different regulations and legalities obviously until those things change and they become more liberal. But I feel like I duNNo. Mike what are your thoughts that I? It's hard because my heart wants to help the people who are in seven years of your pain and I don't use h nor have I a lot in my life but I could see how with see it could be really powerful to get someone out of pain or there's people using it or lot of serious serious issues is CBD legal in all states like could somebody right now just go to my soul. Cbd Dot Com and place an order of their in any state. Yes so it is a hundred percent legal in all fifty states so you can order it. The threshold is if it's a low a certain amount of T. C. Which is weighing zero three percent rights? There are some companies that have a little bit of THC. We don't. We have zero teaching. We decided to go down. That route. Because everything angie just said myself being professional athlete. I couldn't take it. I know I didn't want to promote something. I couldn't take but like Andy said we're open moving into the world especially as regulations these up a little bit. I think that teach is a psychoactive elements so it will get you high to an extent. I think there's a ton of benefits of that and the other candidates in the plan but right now we want to see because it's easy for someone to travel. You can travel all over the world with it and carry on so big deal. You won't get high so it has all the physical and mental benefits so we just decided right now. Cb was only zero t was around for us. And what is the best way I mean? Here's a challenge challenges that we don't yet have a lot of human trial research right. We have lot animal research. That's really promising. And I think we're learning more and more everyday but you cannot dismiss people's personal experience whether placebo or not right. You can't dismiss that. Also when you're looking at over ten years worth of research that I mean our government is doing not just back alley research like this is some pretty powerful things when you recognize that. Nearly every preventable disease relates to inflammation and that we know that. Cbd has this tremendous impact on the nervous system. And that has a trickle down effect. That's why it makes sense to me that once I understood down like Oh hello if it's an anti inflammatory for the most part then of course it's going to have an impact on all these other things but when there's not a lot of information about dosage how do we know what's the best way to take it you know. And how much should I be taking? Should I be taking it in a pill a tincture should I be doing Submit lingual like tongue. I've seen lotions and of course I know you guys have bret lives by at your pain. Lotion. But what do we know? How and is there going to be resource? Aaron and what are your best recommendations for us? Yeah oh I think. There's so many ways to administer it which can be confusing. But you know the Lotion for instance. There's a lot of top goes out there. Skin large organ. The body absorbs. Cd really well gets into the bloodstream. So if you have like an Acre backache remorse systemic inflammation or residing in general were loving the tinctures. They would drop or underneath your tongue. You hold it. Aired thirty to sixty seconds we recommend that has been proven not but anything sub lingual on Tongue it enters the blood brain barrier faster so Absorbing more of that ingredient in this case which is the CB so Tongue phenomenal way. Another way just ingested same thing getting your bloodstream. By ingesting a lot of different people have different ways. They WANNA do it. We have CDC Gummy for instance. That people really love if they're not used to or familiar with the tinctures or sub lingual but as long as getting bloodstream you gain the desired effects issues that we run into as accompanying as an industry as we cannot give exact dosages. We cannot give okay if you had this ailment needed to take this exactly this much. Unfortunately legally we can't do that yet until the laws and regulations really really catch up so we don't sit here and try to claim your cancer or your disease or anything like that. Yes like you said. There's a ton of amazing anecdotal evidence of people loving it. There's also clinical data coming up. It's just gonNA take time because the pharmaceutical industry is trillions of dollars and spend the type of money that they have or these clinical trials so sometimes little tough. But maybe Angie you can just kind of speak to what you take when you take it. Kinda some of your favorite ways to me. Yeah I love the tinctures but I find that. Gummy is are a great first step for people. It's a great eight way to use that word but it's a great step one right for a lot of people who maybe are nervous. Even though they have no reason to be nervous again there's no psychoactive component. But I find that when people feel safe with the dummies they realize. Oh okay I do feel good. This helped my anxiety today. Where my period grams for the women in my community or this helped by headache today at work? And then they're more open to the tinctures and then a lot of people love our sleep capsules. I mean for helping their sleeve especially because it's packed with Melatonin as well so I love tinctures and Gumy's the most and then you also can inhale it too but we don't have any pens so just because you're not sure with all the science of obviously smoking so the right now I'm loving. The GUMMY IS TO BE HONEST. Because they're so portable. They're so easy. I love the you held back. And you didn't jump on the whole vape pen that everybody like that. I think speaks a lot about both Mike an Angie and your commitment to weighing things out not being about the dollar and really saying you know. There's some interesting science that we WANNA see. I is this healthy alternative. Is this the best thing for our customers and I think it was a smart move not to go down that route personally. Yeah because it's still not good for your lungs regardless of what it is and that's something that Mike brought up to me because I thought it'd be fun to do that. Because I have a lot of requests for them for women in their purse to so I have a little pen with me while they're out and about running errands and Mike said you know smoking. Obviously especially if you're doing it a bunch a day it's still damaging to your long. We just don't have enough research on that right so at his. Don't know if it's awfully safe to be spoken. I don't know if the Gumy's are addictive. My personal experiences are doesn't Sierra. Love them to a high. Gosh it's ridiculous over here but you know I was thinking about it maybe I'm just rationalizing it my own head but I can't say that I look forward to putting CBD under my tongue. Every day. I do it and it's a habit because it's next to where all my supplements are so I just do it right the literally at night. This is so funny at night when like I want something sweet. I'm a Oh I know what I could do. I could have a few CD. Gummy is and so. I'm so I'm also very happy to hear that I can't overdose on it because I'm like a really. I don't know that I needed those tonight when I've already taken my. I Love Your sleep capsules. I'm glad you mentioned because I was were your sold out. 'cause I'm looking at two empty bottles here right now I freaking love those yes knocks you out but in a good way not in all my Gosh. What happened last night? Yeah but in a while we really feel like I got nine hours of good quality. Sleep it gets you into interim there's actually incredible research ran out. Mike and a bunch of his biohacking friends are doing this. I have the aura ring that I just got as well. They're testing their sleep on the ring. With CBD OH my goodness. It's like night and day. Right Mike. I mean a lot of these top bio hackers now are releasing research on this. And it's crazy how different your sleep is with. Cb is crazy. It's helping heart rate variability. It's helping increase your Ram Cycles. And now we have the data we have it on our. Gt Am I posted it personally. So it's cool that like you said you know there's a lot of anecdotal evidence. That's great clinical trials coming but now we're starting to see a lot or those things like people wearing the Wu band or ban tracking the sleep cycles. And I mean all I know when you get better sleep your human the next day so that I don't you study for That's awesome Mike. Just for clarity's purpose you do. Have the sleep. Capsules in stock is true. Yeah so we actually changed our a little bit there in stock what we did is we brought from five milligrams of Melatonin down two point five and the reason we did that because there are a lot of people that like five milligrams but what we've seen. Is that if you do want side. We'd rather have you take to and someone who's a little more sensitive to Melatonin and they can't take under the five. I'm two capsule kind of girl I just have to say. Look I love them all. But I'm telling you I start kind of freaking out when I get low because I sleep so soundly I take them about you. Know probably forty five minutes I go to sleep and I just icon cow and I'm really sensitive. I can't do a tylenol. Pm Can't do too much magnesium and horrible at anything like any prescription drug if I ever would need to that for sleep nothing but this stuff is just it really feel nothing in the morning except rested. So I'm happy here. Those are back in stock. And I didn't mean for this to turn into like an ad. I really do want this to be an educational purpose for people but I also know they want to understand how I use it to the one thing that I've been trying to wrap my head around is okay if I can't overdose on this if it's something that my body produces naturally it should and it's going to reduce overall inflammation if I'm gonNA see or could very possibly feel improvements in all these areas. Is this a drug? Is this a hormone like what is categorized? As is it considered an herb. So that's a great point and that's really what the FDA is trying to do right now. They're going to categorize it as a food. Really you know the hemp plant as I mentioned Ravi gross out of the ground and his grown on planet earth for thousands of years. So I think when all is said and done and they come out with the final regulations in how to categorize it and it will be considered a food you know slash supplement. So that's really the best way to categorize it. There is one company. They just got decline but they were trying to patent a CD strain as drug and then obviously monetize it by selling it as a drug that failed because thankfully the FDA the government realized. This is a plant you cannot patent something like CBD when pros out of the ground CBD's DVD. So I'm happy that you know. They had a clear head about that. So how would you think of it? Do you think of it like I don't know like ginger or turmeric like mushroom or is it even beyond that. Well you can think of it like I. I think you know you think of it as your natural supplement like a vitamin in a sense so while some people see backs within ten fifteen minutes other people you take a few days in a row. Consistency is really key. Similar tumor right. We know how credible tumor is as an apple anti-inflammatory you take her bills. Once after day working out they expect all your pain away forever. You know to be a lifestyle and so that's something we we try to go to our customers as well. That's a perfect analogy. That's exactly what I was thinking like. You can take tumor once. And you're not gonNA feel any different you know. Somebody asked me that. Recently I was showing on the supplements I take on my instagram. And they're like feel different. I don't necessarily know that I feel different when I take it but I know I feel different when I go a couple of days without taking it. That's a lot of people will say they'll notice when they're not on it versus when they are on it so women will say wow. I noticed that by ability to handle stress last month wasn't as high and that's when they were off their CB and so it's more like you notice when you haven't been consistent. Mike is it regularly accepted by a professional athletes. Like are you hearing? Am Year in those circles. Are you hearing them? More and more professional athletes are using. Cbd In is this something that they talk about is it accepted it starting to come accepted because in two thousand Seventeen Wada the world anti agency cleared. Cd It's really unfortunate friends that are you know in the NFL NHL different professional athletes. We all deal with so much pain in an sad that it's taken so long for you and they're not even allowed to smoke and obviously that knows T c. But all these cannabinoid Ainun sad that opiates you know are fine but that. Cd Wasn't until recently so. Yeah all these guys are taken it on my buddies are taking some form of of CD and or cdn. Thc issues the facts whether they say it or not you know I would say over. Ninety percent of these athletes are taking something. 'cause were all in pain and we're all trying to manage it inside effects all right. Well I don't mean to mention dogs after the athletes. 'cause you know. I love me some athletes with regard to pets and CBD is the formulation the same. What do we know about dosing there and the oil? Cd create products for pets as well. Sino you guys be careful not to take the bacon. If you're human. It's pretty nasty. I would say are. Flavors are one of the best on the market. But I've made the mistake of accidentally taking the pat one at night when I didn't see so be careful. My friends that is hysterical so the Bacon flavored but apparently bacon flavored for dogs. It's not like delicious Human Bacon so I was grabbing it out of my. I mean I found it twice now. Oh my gosh. And it's just it's intense but dogs love. It's so apparently. The packaging needs to be dramatically different for the pet line. It really does because it happened twice. Now we're coming out with treats as well we're going to have a calming treats that have CD in a bunch of all natural ingredients and that also relief treats of biscuits that. Have you know the all natural relief ingredients with C B B but yet dogs? You know do really well with it. You obviously much lower dose depending on the way and it's all there on our website with the Information Act gene yet dogs. Julie Welk's once Gavitt and Obama System in lot of times. You're freaking out. They have separation anxiety. They need to stay calm. But it's not one of those things where they get high in their bumping into chairs and walls. Soft worry about that. It's great for planes is a formulation the same pretty much. I mean obviously taste is different and dosage but is Rocco taking the same pure isolate of CBD. That I would be taking. Yes he is which is wild. I mean the other ingredients that we put in there could be more specially formulated for dogs. But you see across all CD companies. It's the same candidates the same CB isolate so in that aspect. Yes it is which is why it's interesting. As I mentioned all mammals having that no cabinet says some why dogs take as well? Okay now I want to ask about these bath bombs that you just sent me Angie. I'm not normally someone who takes a bath. And but if I were to I forget which one it was a US. One of them and my skin just felt super. Soft IS THE CBD. Just an agent that makes your skin soft or is that actually being absorbed into my skin. Yeah I love baths. I'm like the Bath Queen so every night. I get so excited to relax one of these in the bath but I found that yes. Women are using it for soft skin has essential oils in it. That's great but a lot of people are using it so it seems into your skin which is the largest organ so it is it into your bloodstream. Now it's not a ton in those bath bombs but where I've been using. It is for period cramps. He obviously helps when you have mental cramps. So I'll sit in the bathtub when I have really bad cramps and I'll put two of those bathtubs. I'm crazy like that. That's baby grandma crazy. I will take you man. Mom This lady's sitting in a really hot bath attained. Sure under my tongue too bad bombs and then two or three Gumy's and it's like I am just you know then a glass dry farm wines hanging off the side. Yeah and and the wind is what helps but it helps take the pain from a six to three. You know again. We were not claiming this is going to solve everything but for me. I have very very excruciating painful periods. And I'm still trying to get to the bottom of what's going on and so for me. Cbd's been huge for that and we're coming out with some new products specifically around that niche pain point and for a lot of women. They don't WanNa take my dollar ibuprofen. So they're trying out. Cbd Now and the bath bombs can be a great addition to that are right now. The other thing is kind of annoying is I see every influencers and reality. Tv person starting their own CBD line. Which I think is gonNA drive you guys bonkers nuts and it would drive me nuts so help us make wise decisions when we are looking for a quality product so my quick questions are worst. I be looking for on the label. Where should I be buying it and do Amazon? Reviews mean anything okay. Great questions first of all we really believe in sourcing here in the United States and not even because of you know. Usa's number one type ideology because companies. That are sourcing in China overseas. They're just sourcing that visiting the arms are not able to have that ends on approach and also the way the pesticides the way that they're making the actual seeds and plant don't have high regulations nationals. Well known so versus former we believe in a practice source the United States but also really believe in companies that are only using third party lab testing and show exactly transparency purity in their Michael. That third party lab testing. Would that be something that we should be able to see on a label? Great Question Yes. So we say Berg Party lab tested we have a little icon on labels but really. I think the best way would be to visit the website. Because you know that's the way you're going to really understand CEDO. Coa's instead of seeing a little icon. They actually do it. Which brings up another point of the Amazon right now is a tricky world CD. Because you'll notice that there's products on there. That are ten dollars for five thousand milligram. Change in what that means is really discount. Mark off prices on Amazon another arson good companies Amazon. But right now all those products on Amazon seeing two incredibly cheap because a lot of people just want to make quick cash you see a ton of different hop CD shops. That came up. And you don't know where they're sourcing or what. It is so no matter. What whether you choose our company or not. Don't necessarily go the cheapest brand and I think that's true with all supplements and vitamins that you do your research and just because the cheapest a lot of times that raises a red flag. They're just trying to squeeze margin so that's why advice matter who you choose recently been looking into the efficacy and the safety and the legitimacy of the reviews for lots of supplements on Amazon and sadly I mean they're doing their best to clean it up but sadly there are companies that have spent a fortune sending out free product for five star reviews. So you click on a product and maybe you filter your search results to show you the products that have the highest number of five star reviews and that automatically makes us believe. Oh well if everyone is saying such amazing glowing things about this product it must be legitimate. But now they've got bought that are creating these reviews. We find out that so many of these reviews had been purchased and have been for people have been compensated for them so I not to say that we don't look reviews but I just I want to caution my audience to tell you that. That doesn't necessarily mean you're getting what the bottle says you're getting and it certainly doesn't mean that all those people are actual people or that they've been honest and Amazon's doing to clean it up but it just. I used to do them be like. Oh we'll look at this product cheaper. It has five thousand five star reviews. It must be okay No I agree. The that's always been a problem to get those. You know verified reviews deeper finding work around you know I know on our website. You have to purchase a product and you have to leave a verified review where the software links up after you purchase products in who you are based on the information gave in. So you can't go on our website and review and be anonymous author to these amazing but yeah that's always a tough issue last thing on ask the two of you and I want to episode on build your tribe so I'd like to invite you to come back if you will enjoy man that show but will you each share with me. The frustrating part pick one thing about working with the other person. Oh man hopefully. This is a ten hour episode with Selene. Now and then I leave us hanging up for a second. This is like a therapy session. All right this is your new therapist. My go ahead. Yeah bursting keenum online. I don't know why was squirrel brain. So Angie okay she had eighty or has it too okay. Easier not a angie is is a blessing occur she Incredible Marketer and has you know everyone knows how amazing she's done but one of the things that is a blessing occurs. She has all these different ideas all over the place which is perfect white. Were such a good match. Because I'm such more pragmatic okay. Let's break that down. What is Disney? And she's such a huge ideas person. Let's do this. Let's do that and I love that about her but a lot of times. It's just Hana all a brain. That's all we spent a lot of time together. I know that brain all right Angie. You're out and that Mike Not Squirrel brain enough. You know. It's like if I wanna go to the moon. Let's go to the Moun- I'm seriously I call him every day. I'm like we should do this. And he's like Angie. Do you know what it takes to create that and do that. That's a huge deal. I'm like it's fine. We got this. We're GONNA do this so definitely Sometimes my feet or not on the ground but yeah. It's interesting as much as I want to go. Fly with me in the cloud. Sometimes they realize that although that's frustrating it's also necessary to have that balance because I can't always be in the cloud so bitter good mix. Well you guys have really figured it. Out and congratulations to both of you on the success of this company on the integrity that you've been able to maintain the hundreds of thousands of people that you've been able to help. That's gotTa feel pretty remarkable and. I hope that you have in fact agreed to share with US. The secrets of working with family. And we can bring you back on.

Welcome back to another episode real quick like if you've been a longtime listener or a longtime creeper of my stories which I hope you. Are you know two things about me one. I am a total baby grandma. I love going to bed at eight P._M.. I Love My C._D.. Baths I'm basically twenty nine. I'm going on ninety nine and you also know that I am obsessed with adorable gym clothes. I'm wearing yoga pants all day long yes right now. I'm wearing yoga pants recording this episode and I'm obsessed with active where that's not only trendy and cute that I can we're to the gym and then we're at a whole foods or where to my errands but that is also affordable. I don't know about you but I was sick of paying four hundred ninety nine thousand dollars for every single pair of yoga pants right and I don't want to say the name of the company but it rhymes with reroute remnant and I just I wasn't down for that anymore. So here's the deal if you're anything like me and you work out pretty much sixties a week or you're really active healthy girl. We go through an incessant amount of gym clothes every single day which means more loads of dirty laundry. I don't like doing laundry so I find myself love by more Jim close to avoid this issue. You ladies know what I'm talking about. So let's be real for a second buying re- remnants every single month basically depletes are being account and you know I would like to use that money for organic salmon and whole foods food or or maybe a trip to Hawaii okay. So what is the solution. Don't you worry found it for you. It is an amazing company founded by the beautiful amazing. Kate Hudson called FAB athletics. I'm super excited to be partnering with this company. I'm already thirty so obsessed with Yoga Pants with pockets. I go on a morning walk every day listening to podcasts and I was really tired of holding my phone so it's really cool to have these yoga pants to have pockets. I can put my phone in there when I'm Jim into music or listening to podcast in the morning or you're listening to music at the gym so here are the two things that I really dig about Fedex. They are on a mission to empower women's live this healthy lifestyle and to make sure that it's accessible to everyone and the waiter doing this is one giving you an exceptional price point and number two. They have sizes for women of every single shape so it doesn't matter what you're paying account is and it doesn't matter what size you are. Athletics is for you so before you forget my friends at Fedex are offering you an incredible deal. You don't want to Miss Two leggings for only twenty four dollars. Oh my my goodness you guys to leggings for twenty dollars. That's amazing to leggings twenty dollars. All you have to do is head to have lennox dot com slash Angie Lee Nag a pair of those yoga pants with the pockets girlfriend. I'm telling you it's a game changer if you listen to podcasts while you're on walks. Walks or you have your phone when you're out running. It's such a game changer. I love it. I'm obsessed. ATHLETICS DOT COM Slash Angie Lee once you grab your pair of Leggings for only twenty four dollars tag me on g say hello. Let's Fedex twins. I'm so obsessed affordable Al- trendy adorable I mean it doesn't get much better than that. I know you're going to be obsessed with athletics. Just like I am Febblue dot com slash Angelique Newark instagram's. I've got some questions for you. My first just one is. When did you see an uptick in your story views? ooh This is a good juicy question. Obviously the unsexy answer is consistency that I know you ladies don't WanNa hear but of course anytime you stick with something your way to build that following and build that trust invalid audience and the women manner tagging each other in it but honestly when I really started to see an increase in my viewership for facebook live and I d stories and a lot of these video platforms was win. I became more of myself and I became unfiltered and I started to use language that I wanted to use and I started to show my weird side. Goofy side is showed more of my personal life and I started to really be me and really step into that authentic self. A lot of women are afraid to show that person on stories or they're afraid to show that person in the written copy but they don't realize is when you add that level of humanization. That's it's when people really start to fall in love with you and they want to watch your stories and then they tell their friends to watch your story so my advice would be to be your unfiltered self. Yes show professionalism E._S._P._N.. Expert yes be credible but really show you and add something to it. That's interesting right. I put a lot of passion into my stories. I put effort into them so my other piece of advice would be to put creative effort into it. Add music add visuals add gist add the engagement features. Take a moment to actually look at the story and puts them producer goggles on and say. How could I make this story ten percent more interesting? Could I add music. A funny visual could add a funny Jif. Could I ask them the entertaining. Could I add a level of education to the text if you're not educating people entertaining them or evoking some sort of action those are the three es of content you guys entertaining evoking in action and education if you're not infusing one of those threes if not all of them into your content. It's going to be difficult for people to keep watching you. If you're not infusing one or all of those threes into your content we cannot expect people to follow you or to continue following following you so making sure that you're educating them. You're evoking some sort of action. You're asking them to do something and you're giving them some education so when you are showing let's say you're Kale Salad. Don't just pose Hashtag Kale Salad add something to that. Is there a funny Jif. You can add a funny song you can add is your creative visual. You can adding color to obviously pops of color help and then giving them a few tips. Why is this Kale sale at healthy is the protein isn't the carves the vitamins? What's in this Kale Salad? It makes it beneficial so always going back to how could I be a source of education for for people on this platform and then how can I make them laugh if I can. I think that's just so so important I call this `edu-tainment. It's where we infuse education with entertainment so again my story views went up when I started to put more love and passion incident and not be so lazy with them. I think a lot of times creators are lazy and they expect people to follow or keep following. It is something that you should record and then take a moment to assess and to really create and produce before you post it so is that as my answer and then again of course always being consistent ladies. If you're not consistent on stories. It's going to be difficult for people to keep Tokyo. I bought that and that kind of flows into my next question which is how did you find your voice. You find your voice by first being really awkward. You know a lot of women want to be these great writers and they want. A to own who they are online and they expect that it's going to be sexy imperfect in the beginning but it's not you find your voice by first being awkward and by not having a voice and by not knowing what your voice is you become a great writer by writing really shitty pieces of content content and then over time you become a good writer. You become really good on video. When you mess up your camera crashes and shuts down and no one's watching you and I've had the most embarrassing moment online video and then you become good on video right anything great first comes with sucking a little bit and I talk a lot about this in I post about sucking before you're amazing and that's how I found my voice? I felt my voice by writing every single day. I have this commitment to myself that I write every single day no matter if it's digpoast if it's an email if it's just in my no pat it's passionate thought I have I write and I create every single okay because I'm a creative human and I want to create in the motion of creating then right and creating this habit for myself of being creative and I'm staying in motion right something in motion stays in motion. It's like exercise so if I'm writing every day then I become a good writer. If I'm speaking every day into a microphone or the camera on my phone dry d stories become good at communicating a huge part of your job as an crater is becoming a good communicator ladies so if you're listening to this and you feel like I don't know what to pose to say what do I am stories. This is awkward this. How do I find my voice? How do I know what to say to my customer? What's it's her voice? How do I match it? This is so confusing you have to start somewhere. You have to start putting things out there and you find your voice by taking action you find it over time right. I know what my voice is now because I've been blogging for ten years. I've been creating content for ten years. So of course I know Oh my voice and of course I know the voice of my customer but in the beginning I didn't I wrote really Awkward Shit. I send emails out that I probably shouldn't have said I posted things that I probably shouldn't have even said it was just awkward but I think this really comes down to you become great at something when you're willing to you I suck at it and when you're willing to create content that maybe doesn't land and it doesn't get a lot of engagement at first. That's really the reality of it so that would be my best advice. You're trying to find your voice. You don't find your voice or voice finds you and finds you when you're willing into practice right yeah absolutely now. Is there a reason why host to so many stories of the day I will say every time I go on instagram. Don't feel like Angie Angie Lee Show I love it. I little bubble. That's right there is they're doing well sure things right one. You just heard what Sasha's said and that's the epitome of Omnipresence on the presence is when I'm in your head all the time right and as a crater that's genius and it's smart and it's something that we really need to keep in mind staying top of mind for your viewer staying top of mind for your ideal customer. If you are relevant and your omnipresent you win because you're the pursues put in the most consistent content so obviously that's more for the Algorithm and Omni any presence and relevance but the unfiltered answer that I wanNa give you is I love creating and I love sharing and sharing my nature. I love sharing things. That's why love being an affiliate marketer. That's why I love creating things I just like sharing my day and so there is no rhyme or reason or algorithm hack behind this you guys I just love sharing and they say do not share one hundred thousand million stories a day but I do because I love sharing and it works for me and my community has learned that that's what I do. Is I over shared sense. Does this work for everyone. No I mean my brother tells me I post too many stories stories a day. I say you know what I don't post enough of them but again I just I love sharing it feels good for me and I always go back to what feels the most authentic in good for me as a crater and I've seen from my audience that they love it and they like it and they want to see more especially the behind the scenes stuff so I'll continue to create a. Lot of content if you're someone who doesn't love decreed as much and you're listening to this then you don't have to post five high quality ones day this could be a quote. This could be a story. This could be what you're eating. This could be your wellness. If Your Business tiff your photography tip whatever it is you do but stay relevant. Make sure you're posting at least one one thing six days a week and you can always hire out an assistant to to help you with your stories if that's difficult for you but this is you taking five minutes in your car on your lunch break or outside and giving people the thirty second tip of the day around your niche. This doesn't have to be that time intensive. Everyone's afraid read of I._D.. Stories because they're afraid that they have to be on all the you don't have to do it like I'm doing it in order for it to be successful. You can do it how you want to do it. You're busy mom cool when your child's taking a nap start a series called naptime with Sarah and when you're hanging out when yeah baby sleeping and you're and you're giving away some valuable content make it work for you. Make it work for your schedule. If you have ten minutes in a day you can crank out five to six super valuable pieces of content super valuable stories in ten minutes so if you've got ten minutes ladies which we all do then in crank it out and do it and don't be afraid to multitask. Don't be afraid to insist on your lunch break. Don't be afraid to insist story while you're cooking in the kitchen or while your kids in the background hanging out show your real life right. Everybody thinks you have to be in front of the screen or have your ring light out and that's just that's not the reality a Lotta Times. I do it when I'm on walks because that's when I have free time and that's when I feel the most inspired so when you feel the most inspired great when you have ten to twenty minutes a day make it educational make it somewhat entertaining and make sure it's applicable to your viewer and it's helpful for her and acting got so powerful when I started implementing that I started to see an uptick in my on my instagram wow the great I only put out content one. I'm inspired something you taught me so sometimes I feel like I am speaking for for too long on one subject although my content is so valuable so I don't want to take the content out hike. How can I make it more digestible to my viewers even though the content is long yes I love this making it? Digestible instable to your viewer is so important. This is really juicy. You guys write this down one making sure that if you guys are doing face to camera in this stories but you should be doing a lot. It's better for conversions if you're doing. Let's say your top five tips to burning fat at home your health and wellness coach. You're teaching thermometer. Burn fat from home okay. You're doing a little story during your lunch break. You want to make sure that you're putting text over the story so they're not just seeing a bobbling head. Talking people need to see visuals as they're listening so making sure that every single story has text of what you're talking about about quoting yourself. This is really powerful. You'll notice do this on stories intentionally so I can keep the viewer engaged the entire time. It's almost like I'm putting subtitles on my stories right so this is really really important. Number two is to make sure that you are adding some sort of visuals emojis. Little icons cons funny quotes hashtags keeping the story very engaging literally not just your face one of the biggest mistakes I see women just doing eight stories in a row and it's just face and she's beautiful and she's great and all but I just want to stare at your face. I want to be entertained every single fifteen seconds I I know it sounds crazy but that's the human nature of humans and how we consume things so keeping people engaged the entire time with visuals the next thing to keep in mind is to take out any fluffy words or filler language this comes with time and I don't want you to sound like a news reporter but taking out a lot of the lights and the if there's something you can say in fifteen seconds and is taking you thirty seconds summit up get to the point. We all have that annoying neighbor Sharon who is telling you this story that is taking her fifteen minutes and she could have literally told you the exact same. Story in two minutes and so summit up to the point you guys if you can tell a story or give your tips in a more condensed for dussault really learn how to condense what you're saying and become more articulate and again that comes with time and that comes with practice but there are times where I'll record something that I'm like Dang it. I could've told her that exact same tip in one fifteen seconds story instead of twenty five seconds so what I'll do is retake it really quick and I'll watch the timer on the edgy story and make sure that I am closing out my sentence right before it hits it so looking at the timer making sure that you're finishing each tip of ideally in one story and again this comes time in practice but we all know that neighbor Sharon who's not getting to the point that was summit up. Get to the point you guys keep your stories as impactful and short and quick and to the point as possible because people are creeping on a lot of people all day if you could get to the point faster and in a more entertaining and quick way than you went with viewer yeah so one of the reasons why I love following you is your sense of anticipation anticipating the future of the market so great and I really appreciate that so my question <music> as where do you see content creation hiding in the next three to five years. This is juice. This is what I think is going to happen and this is something that I really believe in and I shared a little bit of this with you ladies but what is going to happen in is there's going to be a pendulum swing and this happens with fashion. This happens with a lot of different industries where less filtered and less perfect and less curated is going to be the thing what's happening right. Now is we're in this time of all of these APPs of extremely over filtered extremely curated these perfect feeds where her orange shoes match her orange hat and the other photo and this quote matches this and it's just oh my God. It's like a magazine and it's just listen for you. Girls who love visuals I get it. It's cute and all that I think there is also this level of. Let's just is be human and let's just be real and let post in the moment and let's post when they're passionate and that's why I've run my business and again. It's not the one way to do it but I think what is going to happen. Is Real is going to be in and people want to see you E._S._p._N.. Professional and looking good but women also want to see other women women with no makeup on they want to see them with messy bond. They WanNA see your acne. They WanNA see your imperfections. They Wanna see with your crazy kids. In the background. They want to see real life and that is what is going to convert real is going to win in the next few years with social media. You'll see less filters. You'll see less edited. You'll does the less perfection you'll see less curation. That is one hundred percent what's going to happen because everything's a pendulum right. There's always seasons for anything in life and if you follow any of these big celebrities that are doing it right and getting a lot of engagement instagram. It's the ones who were really just showing them on instagram. Being real like will Smith is just him in his house him being real and that in itself is what people love more so than his perfect image when he's in movies so again knowing that you guys don't have to be perfect some of my post with the highest engagement our iphone picks where I was literally just while using my iphone and it wasn't with a photographer that I paid eight hundred hundreds of dollars but the copy was really good and it was very connected and it came from a really passionate place and I was really present with the post and I put a lot of effort into it so it's going to be about quality over quantity and it's going to be about being real so this is the reminder for you now now. He's starting infusing that more into your content. Maybe even a fifty fifty split of yes showing those professional photos so you can show that you are professional and you have this brand but also don't be afraid to sprinkle in the unfiltered especially in your stories. Show you being real show your real life right. I show myself and my robe. I'm not always dressed up because I wanNA show that I'm real and I also just you know too tired to go close on. It is what it is right. Yeah and people fall in love with that people fall in love with authenticity. How do you know when you're not being authentic anxiety and this applies? To so much more than just social media or your personal brand or entrepreneurship this slicer relationships when it's not authentic right you filling Zaidi you feel that pit in your stomach that you just can't put into words we know something is off and you know something is wrong. That misalignment is authenticity when you're in alignment whether that's in your business so that's in your relationship you'll know because you're calm and you're at ease and it just flows and it just feels right and they call this the flow state. It's almost as if time doesn't exist rights when you're in love with the right person time doesn't exist when you're doing what you're meant to do in this world time doesn't exist doing what I love right now. I don't even know where I am or what's going on. This is what I love to do. It feels like it's just coming out of me and it's just almost like these downloads and is the same thing with a relationship relationships where I couldn't tell you what was wrong but something just fell off and that meant eh I wasn't being truly authentic wasn't myself in that relationship in that wasn't really need. This is important for you to keep in mind with whatever it is. You're doing if it's the niche that you're coaching on. If it's the job that you're out of its the guy you're with. If it feels wrong and you feel anxious nine out of ten it's because it's not authentic and it's not really what you should be doing and it's not who you should be with and I think it's interesting and I think one of the many reasons why I really respect you and love you is your relentless pursuit of authenticity and you're so unapologetic about it which is just so beautiful and I think that even as someone who just started an instagram business right when I look at my stories and I do the playback if it feels off I know it's because I am off. I'm in my head and I think it sounds like you do such a good job. Then you've really place a lot of value on that authentic space and you hold that space for yourself and you shy away from anything that gives you that insight he obviously your viewers feel it and they just resonate rate. These powerful authenticity is power. It's really all we have if I don't get to be paid to be who I really am than I don't WanNa do this because then I'm acting. I didn't find them to be an actress. These I didn't sign up to be an actress. I signed up to share my life and there's a huge difference right huge difference and I just I didn't and sometimes sometimes I have to catch myself and say is that is that authentic is that real is that he was real real. This is with businesses origins to so many things on my plate right now and I'm constantly doing that gut checkup. Is this authentic. Is this really what I WANNA do. Is this an alignment and if it's not I don't do it and I vote pursue it. It's not worth the money it's not worth the exhaustion. It's not worth the time it's not worth the EGO. It's not worth any of that and so ask yourself. Are you being an actress on instagram or you being yourself. When you ladies are yourself you're good to be free and all we all really want is to be fucking free right and so when you're free people feel feel lightness they feel when you are alive yourself and your free you can feel it right now? In my voice it's coming from a very genuine place because I feel free and I think that's what people are attracted to that when they follow women like me or other micro influencers or leaders or whatever they feel like that girl is free and she's is being herself and everybody all the we want the end of the day all just want to be ourselves. We all want to be free and God damn if you could be paid to be yourself. That's the greatest gift on this earth I think and that's why I try not to complain about what I do my job and as much as it's exhausting. It's very energy rich. I get to be paid to be authentic and be myself and there's nothing more than an. I hope to inspire women to do that because man. That's the dream right yeah and I'd love how you said you're not getting paid to be an actress. No you're getting paid to be yourself and comedy people. Oh put on a facade some people put on a facade and they don't even know they're putting on a facade because they have not that space of authenticity in you allow space for people to just be themselves and finally have a relationship build a relationship with.

Unfulfilled Female Syndrome with Natalie Jill and Angie Lee - 563

"Von Yeah I just wanted to say thank you so much for all this work you do. I feel like I'm podcast. I should be paying for this. It's like incredible the amount of time and energy in love that you put into all of these things that you do but I am in my painting. Close like squatted down painting the base Ford in our vintage. Listening to all of your podcasts. Like over like one by one. My last thing I listened to was you talking about his dad with Alzheimer's himself. I talked to my husband. Who's also a Brett? I shared with him about it. And we both crime over dinner tonight. It's like we've got our parents in our seventy seventy five or so and so we're going to reach out and just ask them like how do you want us to take care of you If and when that time comes and then we need to plan like what do we want to do? When we're that age and we bought our lot our kids know all that thank you and you really encouraging me and I'm new to all of this. I'M NEW TO THE MARKETING IMPACT ACADEMY. I'm so excited to get a little bit more going. Was My business levy girl. What's up buttercup? I'm so happy you're here. Welcome to the lean show. My name is Shaheen. Which is I? Guess why it makes a whole bunch of sense at this is called the Sh- lean show and I'm just really thankful grateful. The you're here. I think you're gonNA like this episode. This is going to shed some light on friends of yours people. You know people that you love who seem to never be satisfied and maybe that's you today. We'll take a deeper look a deeper dive to help all of us understand. What makes us feel this way? And what can we do about it? Ralph Waldo Emerson. Once said every minute that you're angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness for me. I've come to realize that every minute that I spend dissatisfied I lose sixty seconds of happiness and eventually I had to figure out for myself. That wasn't today. We're talking about a syndrome. I like to call unfulfilled female syndrome. It's something I've identified myself and I like to say that I'm in recovery. I can't say that I am one hundred percent recovered because I don't know that we ever get to that place and I don't know if I attract these types of emails into my life or if it's something that's happening in society as a whole recently. I pulled my instagram followers. To Find Out. If in fact it was just me and my circle of friends or if this was actually very prevalent based on your responses between sixty and seventy six percent of my audience said they did fall into that category that they often did feel as though they weren't doing enough that whatever it was they were pursuing. Should've been better could have been bigger and coming majority of you shared the you often have a sense that there's something missing that you need to do more that once you reach a goal or an accomplishment instead of taking time to celebrate it you feel as though you've fallen behind and need to get onto the next thing the next bigger and better thing that there's always people to compare yourself to who are doing more who are doing better and because of that even once you reach major milestones or accomplish your audacious goals. It still doesn't feel like it's enough even if you're exercising six and seven days a week you look in the mirror dissatisfied with your progress even though everyone else praises you not only for your efforts but the results for whatever reason it always feels like we need to be doing more when I was in middle school. My parents operate a business liquidation business where my dad went into stores that were closing down kind of what's happening right now. Where major department stores and chains and franchises are trying to figure out how to survive filing for chapter eleven filing for bankruptcy and liquidating their assets. When this happened the assets went up for auction. If you will through the bankruptcy courts and my dad will go to court which probably is one of the reasons why I so desperately wanted to be an attorney on my gosh. I'm just like having this realization right now. So they took their life savings and they bought a really big deal. I can't remember the name of the company that they liquidated but what they do is take possession of all the assets. They weren't actually taking ownership of the business but rather its assets so once they took possession of them they would house them in a giant warehouse until they could figure out how to resell them. Apparently this is over just a short period of time from what I remember what my dad is described to me. It was a kind of shady dark. Almost mob mentality of the folks who were running in these circles. My Dad was kind of the odd man out the best way. I can describe my dad especially my impression of him. As a child was that he was just a mild mannered. Kind level headed reasonable very smart but also very in control of his emotions. Kinda guy you might remember the series of played in the seventy s in the eighties. Little House on the prairie. My Dad reminded me of Michael Landon paw on Little House on the prairie. That's Kinda guy was so he really didn't fit in with this group of unscrupulous characters. Needless to say when he got this deal apparently it was a really big deal though. No arrests were ever made. It's assumed one of his competitors burnt the warehouse down to the ground. Now I never knew it at the time because my folks were really good about the language that they used and they very carefully avoided saying things. Like money doesn't grow on trees were broke. We can't afford that so I never really knew how we were doing financially except when this happened and I remember my dad bringing me into his office and he sat me down in his big brown leather office chair. I knew this is important in his hand is holding a little probably like three inch by two inch blue bankbook. It was my bank book and he wanted to share with me a lesson now. His intentions were pure. I don't fault him in the Lisa. Sounds like something I would do with my own kids so the story. I'm about to tell you for some reason. I'm feeling like very protective of my dad right now. But what he meant to do was to share with me a lesson in how to have your money make you money. He wanted to teach me about interest and in doing so. He pulled on my bank book and Said Now. I know you've been saving your money and working really hard and I wanNA teach you today. How you have the opportunity to have your money make you money. You know your mother and I have lost our business. There was the fire. And we're GONNA be okay but what we'd like to do is borrow this money from you and we're GonNa pay you back now. I don't know if they really needed that money. I don't know but they did borrow it and they did pay me back and it might have just been my dad's seeing an opportunity to teach me about interest but I- beamed with importance and significance. I remember on that day feeling like my whole life in the role that I played in this family had changed even as I think back on it. It's like I can feel the alchemy. Something shifted in me. That day I felt so important I felt so relevant I felt so needed and in it I formed this belief that that's what made me significant my ability to take care of people financially my ability to have money. I knew it was a big deal then. My parents were borrowing money from me and even though it might not be true in my head. I formed this belief that I was keeping the family afloat that it was me who saving the family. And from that day forward everything about the way I viewed success and money and accomplishments changed and I viewed the world. Through those lenses. I looked for ways to prove my belief if I was praised or people complimented for anything. I didn't hear those compliments. I didn't believe those compliments but the ones I looked for it and the ones I sought after the ones that felt so important to me. Were the ones related to making money and in particular making money to take care of other people by age. Fifteen hours already figuring out how I could afford my own college. I never asked my parents for lunch money again after that happened and I was in middle school. I never asked him for a dollar after that because I had guilt. But because I had pride that I could provide for others I could provide for myself and eventually I started flipping cars and entering into business and finding myself more obsessed with working than I did anything else. That's why every sport that I started. I usually would quit because it wouldn't allow me to spend enough hours at work. I worked retail network marketing. I knocked on doors. I sold newspapers over the phone. Anything that I could do any part time job that I could have in any small business that I could develop simultaneously. I did that and I like to think that I did it from Dr but really ultimately eventually after going to therapy. I learned that I was doing it because it was the only thing I thought that made me valuable. And when I looked for evidence of that I could find it and if I couldn't find it I would create it whatever I needed to do to validate that belief. I did it including and through the I pretty much ten years of my marriage. When I met my husband I was twenty one. He was twenty. We're at Michigan State University. And at that point I already had. Three jobs was working as a paralegal and also a fulltime student and also running my own business. I was a baller and I thought that's what he was. Attracted to was my ability to make money to provide for not just myself but for others. I remember on his twenty first birthday. I rented a huge limousine purchased all the alcohol for the Party for him and all of his friends and my friends and just always paid for everything and it wasn't as though that came easy it meant a lot of sacrifice admit. I never had time to rest meant that I could never just be student. I had always be thinking about the next move my next job my next promotion my next business my next thing because I had to make more money. Because if I wasn't making more money will then I would be less valuable and I. I just carried this theme in my mind forward into years of our marriage life and never feeling satisfied and never being told that that's why I was valuable but the irony is that the more you make the more you realize you have to make after that. 'cause you're only as good as your last hit you know if you take your friends and family members on a fancy vacation will. The next vacation has to outdo that. And if you're buying a nice car this year will then the car you by next year has to be better than that and if the check you've made this month is really impressive. Will then the check after that has to be even bigger? Which leaves you feeling forever unfulfilled. There was never any time to celebrate any wins or to congratulate myself on a job. Well done there was no time. I had to do more and more and more and it became drug. It became my addiction. It drove wall between myself and my husband. I was so disconnected as anyone is when they're deepen their addiction. When you're deep in your addiction you are so distracted that it's impossible to connect on an emotional level with other people. You can't because you're busy. Your mind is constantly focus on. How can I get that next fix and for me? That next fix was that next big deal my next accomplishment my next money making opportunity even once we had kids. I could coordinate my day so that I could be there with my kids during the day and you know we raise them at home together. We worked in our business together but all that meant was I had less time to make money during the day so I sacrifice my sleep. Just never sleeping. I would stay up through the night because I knew I had to make more money in my mind next month than I did this month but eventually in nearly broke us. And I'll save that story for another podcast but I'll tell you this. I don't know that we would still be married today if we hadn't gone through that deep dark place where Brett's addiction which eventually ended up being gambling in my addiction which was work forces both into into really taking our therapy to the next level. Now I'd been seeing a therapist. That was quite the norm in my family. I think my parents for normalizing that and I had gone to therapists in the past but it wasn't until this happened that I knew I needed to figure out why it was. I never felt the I can proudly and confidently tell you today that I am changed woman. I don't think you're ever safe like I know that I have to be aware. I know that there need to be checks and balances and I know I have to give people permission to keep me accountable to be my sponsors if you will. It's a journey but by reprocessing that early childhood memory and then all of the subsequent evidence I stacked on top of that really childhood memory. I've been able to release that feeling. I no longer hold that. Believe to be true. And it's what freaking relief. It feels like the weight of the world has been lifted from my shoulders. Free Free. That's what I feel like today. It doesn't matter to me how much money I make. I need to make enough money to keep a roof over our head but it no longer has a hold on me and one of the ways. I know that to be true is because I don't need to be the one in the past. I didn't allow Brett to be the breadwinner or to be the one responsible for saving the family financially. Like I wanted that role to be mind so that I had a role in this family but today I just feel so protected and taken care of because he does take care of our financial situation and because he's reassured me so many times because I have different beliefs now but he's reassured me over and over again at that is has not why he loves me and IT'S NOT WHY. I'm important and also my faith like I know I am valuable. Not because of what I can earn but simply because I'm a child of God and he's like the coolest person in the world and he's already very impressed just by the fact that I am me. Success no longer has a hold on me now. My goal is peace. I'd have to guess that it's coming up on ten years now that I've been friends with my friend. Natalie Joe who's been on the show many many times and I met her shortly after what? I like to call my awakening and I immediately recognized my past self in her. Of course being the pushy know it all that I am. I couldn't help but let her know that. There was another way now since that time Natalie to has been on her own journey. I think that she too would say she wants. Suffered from unfulfilled female syndrome. For years years in my life I was on this never ending chase. It was like nothing was good enough. I would achieve a goal and then it wasn't good enough to me. I had a set the next goal and then I would achieve that next goal and then I would. Here's somebody else had achieved a bigger goal or something that I perceived to be more powerful and I would chase Scott and it felt like this never ending chase and it was constant and competition. Would fuel it friends that I attracted with fuel it. It was this constant chase of this is not enough. This is not enough when I think what was it that drove me to keep going to do more to create more to do the next thing the next thing the next thing really what I know now is that it was about acknowledgement about at look what naughtily created. Look at these people that love Natalie. Look at all these people that Natalie has helped. Look at who natalie connected so and so with it was about this need for acknowledgement and being liked or really being loved. You know I think back to being a little girl. My Dad never told me he loved me. It was one of those things I knew he did but he never verbalised it ever and my dad worked a lot. He was always working and the only way to get my dad's attention was say. Look at me. Look what I've done. My Dad was always about making money like he wanted me to make. Money is proud of me. I was making money so first job was at fifteen and a half and when I was nineteen job at hooters. No my mom was not happy about that and my dad even at. I was like you got a job. Where and as soon as he saw much money I was making. They're all of a sudden. It turned to him being proud. But I look at my chase. It was really about approval and being liked and being recognized. That was the drive but now that I know that I am enough that like just by existing and being here I am of value and I love myself. That drivers changed. So that's what's changes that recognition of a lot of that. I'm forty eight years old as we record this and just have achieved so much but looking back. It's interesting that I never actually took time to acknowledge myself or or say. Wow look you did this. I never did that. I'm going to honestly say for the first time in my life. I don't feel that way. I do not feel like I'm still chasing. I've learned it is an ongoing process to stay in check but I've done a lot of work to get to that point. It just felt like I was never enough. In fact I remember. My first book had been published. It was a bestseller it hit USA. Today as bestseller I had over five hundred reviews on Amazon. I was top of several categories on Amazon I had countless e mails people writing in that I changed their lives that my book had made a huge impact for them and I felt like a failure because I had set this goal that I was going to be in New York Times bestseller and when I didn't hit that goal I was devastated all I could think about was failure and I remember going to speak on stage and feeling like a failure before I even went out thinking I'm a fraud here. I'm going to go speak and I couldn't even make New York Times bestseller. The only way that we evolved. The only way that we grow is by taking a deep and sometimes very painful. Look at our past and putting the pieces of the puzzle together Understanding Without Judgment. How are early beliefs were formed? I had a dad that I know he loved me but I was never enough. I was never enough. Never enough for him was you know what are you going to do? And to get my dad's detention. It would be about what I was earning or what I was creating or what I was doing. And that's how I would get my dad's attention. It really boils down to me wanting love from my dad and healing that I had to prove something to him when my dad died when I was just twenty two years old I think I was left with still chasing and looking for approval. It's one thing to recognize these traits and ourselves and to struggle with the idea that it might be a positive trait that are Dr Create Success and admiration. Work Ethic is celebrated but when Dr Turns into an obsession when you never feel fulfilled when you quest. Results in action and relationships are splintered. How do you change that? The start of it with my husband being unhappy. You know my husband used to say to me. When is anything enough when as anything enough and I would get mad at him? I would think what's wrong with you like I'm providing I'm successful. I we have these nice things and he would say I don't care I just want you. When is this going to be enough? And he finally had had enough and he's my second husband. We are still together now but a few years ago he was ready to walk out the door and that was the wakeup call. But it wasn't even enough. Then ask how to happen. Was My business how to start suffering. I think my need to constantly do more create more be more drove people crazy people that work for me and it was such a chase. I had that I ended up spending ridiculous amounts of money chasing my dream. I say it was like the eagles spending now hiring people that I thought could make me stronger better whatever and never really paying attention to numbers and how my business was actually doing and so that second thing that had to go wrong with my business being near failure because of that because of how I was spending to create versus like actually just appreciating looking at what. I've got a managing that. Well then the third thing that that really had to kick in was I had to get injured and it happen now once but a few times started with my back and during my back and eating surgery. And then it escalated. As of the most recent thing was tearing my Bicep Bicep tear and what was interesting about that is I had already made this big shift and realize so much and was really headed in the right direction and I had just started to have a little glimpse of wanting the chase again and then I tore my bicep. Look at those things as reminders. If you don't get proactive and look for how you can change this. Then I believe life happens to you in a way that will make you realize that. I know a number of entrepreneurs and friends that will tell you the same thing. They knew it on some deep level that they were in this constant chase of. It's not enough. But they didn't want to interrupt it and it took an injury or an illness or their spouse leaving them. It took something massive to happen my advice. If you even feel it coming up pay attention to it for me. It's been a big journey. A several year journey starting with personal development. Therapy doing some. Emc are going on some spiritual retreats where I could just really shutdown go internal and look at this and then hiring some solid coaches. I'm a huge fan of having coaches. That can help pull a lot this out of you and then the final piece. That really helped me was. I did some hypnosis and I can't speak enough about the powers of hypnosis when you get to the root of what's happening that definitely changed the relationship I've had with my dad just doing hypnosis going back to childhood and being able to know that I'm loved just for being and that came from hypnosis a lot of ads I often say that I am a workaholic in recovery and I'd like to say that I'm completely recovered. I think if I did say that I would be putting myself. At risk of falling back into the grips of my addiction. I know the my addiction is work and accomplishment. I know that I have these tendencies. I believe recovery is a journey on which we must always be vigilant. I have moments where I have an idea or thought like wow but I quickly now go to why that may not be needed or the gratitude and what I already have or why. This is not a good idea to add that now. And what's so funny? Is I think my whole life. I thought I had to be chasing and hustling to be successful and I now have a knowing that that's not true and I will tell you that my business is doing better now from a profit standpoint than it ever has. And I'm hustling and chasing so much less. It's not even part of my my life anymore. I often talk about how we are resistant to go to therapy. Were resistant to dig deep. When we believe we're managing and this is especially true for those of you who are highly productive who are driven. You might wonder if in fact you're going to lose your edge if in fact you might make things worse. Will it be worth the effort? There is something amazing on the other side of it. I wouldn't change anything. I've been through to learn the lessons that I've learned but I no longer believe that. It's necessary to hustle and chase to be successful. Angie League is the founder of my soul. Cbd also a sponsor of the show. Now you might be surprised to know that Angie Lee is just thirty years old. She's practically a baby and as a matter of fact. She calls herself a baby grandma the irony. She's accomplished more in her thirty years than most people do in their lifetime. She someone I consider a dear friend. I adore her. She's a petite blonde firecracker she's hyperactive self deprecating. Has Big Eyes should could definitely do. Stand UP COMEDY. She snowboards and she teaches marketing. And for all those reasons my greatest fear is that someone's going to say. Is that your daughter? Which is why always introduce her as my little sister I see myself and Angie and the protective older sister in me worries about her ability to know the she's enough. I can't remember the last time in my business that I took a year to just be versus doing and achieving something specific by next goal is a successful book launch in the fall. And I'm already feeling the anxiety. I is really focusing on the enjoyments of the process. So for most people just publishing a book is an incredible feat and because I am so personally familiar with that way of thinking. I'll just bet that New York Times bestseller is what she means. When she says successful book launch for me I feel like a lot of my childhood was about winning and if I got a second place trophy. My Dad was unhappy. That wasn't enough so I feel like now as an adult. What's happened is that has become how I show up and entrepreneurship right. Is I have to win the best I have to keep growing. I have to keep excelling and I feel like a lot of that is from him. Giving me love and recognition. When I was the best and got first place I wanted to know for Manji what it felt like from her perspective when she does hit one of these incredibly lofty goals does she celebrate it. Does she feel fulfilled last year? I was fortunate enough to be asked to speak at her live. Event called pays to be brave. This event was off the freaking chain. She was like a Rockstar and there were thousands of women who had come from all over the United States to learn how to basically monetize how to be brave how to overcome that fear that so many people have it keeps them stuck in a job that they don't like a had to imagine that after this event knowing what her goals were and knowing that she had accomplished them. I wondered what she felt after my live of it. I felt like I immediately needed to start planning the next one. You have to wonder if her dissatisfaction or that feeling of not being fulfilled being unfulfilled. How much of that stems from this belief that it wasn't big enough or wouldn't be big enough in the eyes of her father. I remember even the first pays to be brave where I filled the room with. Five hundred women which is a huge accomplishment. I was super proud of myself. And he didn't show up. He was busy. He was traveling but I remember calling him after and telling him how excited I was. How amazing it was. I will always remember that moment of my first pays to be brave event and he kind of brushed it off New Mexico. That's cute that's cool and I specifically remember him saying. Oh five hundred women have eight hundred women and I was like. Do you know how hard it is to get five hundred people into a room that took so much work so maybe that is for the part of me. The eight year old girl in me. Who feels like a thousand people isn't enough so I have to have three thousand? Three thousand people isn't going to be enough then. I need to have ten thousand but when does it end right? Because everything's relative so win will like like one day. I'm going to fill a room at ten thousand people and will I step off stage and be proud of myself or will? I think that still is not enough. A thousand people isn't enough. You need three thousand and then you need ten thousand and then you need twenty thousand. I didn't feel like I had time to celebrate and to be proud of myself now that I'm verbalizing this to you. I realize is crazy because the me three years ago would be so proud of myself. But that's the funny thing about our perceptions are negative or limiting beliefs. Even when common sense tells us this doesn't make sense even when we know better even when we know our beliefs are irrational until we reprocess those beliefs they still very much controlled the way we operate even when we know better. That's something I've really had to work on is making myself proud in doing it for me. Verses for my parents or my dad's specifically the eight year old and meek got love and recognition and significance from doing not from being. I got it from accomplishing a goal and being the best and winning and being first place in sports not from creativity and my passion and my effort all of our beliefs whether negative or positive have an origin. Those beliefs are formed early. And then we spend the rest of our lives looking for evidence to support those beliefs and we don't have to look very far. Social media is an incredibly powerful tool but it can also illuminate our insecurities and make us think that we need somebody else's career or success because we are scrolling and seeing everybody else's highlight reel to be honest. I think a lot of it comes from the pressure to keep up with what everybody else is doing. And what? Everybody else is achieving. If Susan wrote seven books well I need to read seven books and that pressure can be really exhausting and it drains our creativity and our authenticity and that comparison trap can make us feel like we are never doing enough. I feel like I still need to make my dad. Happy and proud and the only way I'll be able to do that is by achieving things and number two is comparison comparing myself to other people in my space and feeling like I always have to keep up when we make a decision to be a better human which I think everyone who listens to. This show has made that decision. That's one of the reasons why you love personal development. It means you've gotta look at your origin stories. You have to figure out. When was the first time I this way? And that often means looking at her childhood in sometimes it means having to go back and make sense of memories reprocess. I mean who could fault apparent for encouraging their child to be their best. Seems like a positive and I think myself about how that may of had a negative impact on my kids who both are in their twenties now and I tend to think these issues. Don't wait until children grow up to be young adults and then start to ask themselves. Okay why do I feel this way? Why do I feel unfulfilled or worse yet? Why do I feel paralyzed by perfection? And we're just doing our best parents. I know my parents were just doing their best. If you're a parent I know your doing your best. But we're still GONNA make mistakes and even if we don't make mistakes. There's no way we can know for certain how our children are to interpret the message. I certainly know that some of the beliefs I formed were of no fault of my parents. It's just the way I perceived the message. So what can we do? We can only do our best and we could have fun. We can enjoy the process of unraveling those stories dismantling limiting beliefs evolving growing and ultimately it helps to have a good sense of humor about all these things that is it my friends. This is the real deal. Hashtag data shoes are girls. I love you both now. Lee Angie thank you for opening up your hearts to us. Thank you for sharing your realness. And Gosh you guys. It wasn't until I finish this episode that I realize where I'm sure some of you are realizing right now to is this a daddy issue thing I don't know I did my research before I started this episode denied. Haven't found any of that so I like to hear from you if you suffer from unfulfilled female syndrome do some of your early memories relate back to your dad. Are we just a bunch of little girls and adult suits trying to get her? Dad's attention I don't know it's worth exploring. Speaking of which don't forget. Therapy is cool and cool people. Go to therapy. It's the thing to do. Listen I love you? I mean it and I'll talk to you soon.

I haven't really let myself think i haven't written now how actually feel and so many people who took this course said that it was completely life changing and they revealed a lot of things about themselves about them lot about their lives about their relationships that they weren't really looking at or they were avoiding and it's about having those tough conversations not only with other people but really <hes> with yourself and knowing that you have the tools and the access to the tools and we're going to teach you all of the tools that you need not only to move through do things but to actually thrive on the other side so you guys i would love for you to join the aligned community.

You can get paid and paid very well because we need you to event l. u._v. Dot com right right now to go. Check it out you guys today on my show. I have angie lee who you guys will see. We just always had crazy fun chemistry emissary together and i have known her for i think over ten years now on the second we met. I think that we just ended up talking about anything and everything and i'm super thrilled because i'm going to be speaking at her event october. Fourth through the sixth and san diego and that's called pays to be brave and angie lee is she. We started doing thousands of videos blogs and now she's got podcasts. She's a wellness influencers serial entrepreneur seven bigger digital and physical product creator. She's a top one hundred ring podcast or speaker and seven figure marketing guru so you guys tune in right now. You're gonna just honestly this. Podcast is for anybody with a goal in a vision and it is all about three ways that we have used in that angie uses to overcome for come her fears and step into this highest version of ourselves so let's get started and you're here. Thank you so much for coming on the show. I'm so stoked. It's been years since we've jammed and i can't believe leave. It's been a year since your books bent out. It's it's incredible. It's crazy so yeah. It is absolutely nuts. I was just telling you guys. This is so great we had a little snafu of recording and then it stopped recording so we've had this conversation already but i do want well like angie is has it on her heart to write a book which i the freaking wait for <hes> because we're talking about how the ripple effect is like a year after the book comes out like you don't really get to feel the tangible like like results of your book until later. It's like people by takes about read it right. I don't know about you but i like the stack of books that i'm like okay about this last year. Now is the time you're like oh yeah. I'll finally rebe out. It's been on your kitchen table in front of you for two years and like oh this looks great and came out years ago and friends will send me a book and i'll just i like gin zuma right away. I'm like oh my god. I have to read this. That's i feel like yours is going to be so. I can't wait for it to come out. Let's hope so the diving into the unknown with that. I was telling laura. It's similar with events event pays brave where when you create something whether it's tangible or alive it's so fascinating to see your community then hang out and become friends without you. You are the mom and you bird these children and they just go off and do their thing and they fly and it's so so surreal. I literally think i need to pinch me so. I don't know if you're like this. It's still super surreal to me. Okay picks last year that room together that we're strangers are now best friends or business partners. Look at this group and i'm like who did this. That was that's so weird. I put something on and people it just so weird okay so much because i i think that we can pressure ourselves into thinking that we have to do these huge things at a different events or in the containers that we hold space but you really just need to learn learn how to be like a master space holder because the magic will happen if you give them the container with like the cut the memories in directions in what does that look like the facilitation so i think people stress themselves so hard over bringing the best content in the best speakers and i'm like they never care like the thing that they're more every time on my survey angie. They're more excited about when they get to like talk to each other times. They get to connect then. They are about all the the other stuff that i stress about so i'm like okay. How about we just they connect more and that's such a reminder for anyone listening. Whether it's an i g story a youtube video they wanna start a podcast. People will not remember the details or their own action and it's such a good reminder for me when i'm on these calls my team about the color of the balloons when it doesn't matter if it's magenta santa or it's light purple. What really matters is. Did we have a good time and did i bring the best my best angie my best self and women on the forms will say i just wanna go to be in the energy of the room. I just want to be in that energy. I just wanna make friends. I'm lonely and i'm like oh. That's why they're coming so it's cool to get that feedback. Yeah really why we do events because it's so it's so important for women to actually get off the computer and to actually go touch another human but if that balloon is magenta. It's just going to throw them monitor ladies. If you go to be brave and the the balloons out the color you wanted don't glasses in a a bucket and just like yeah. It's like oh it's crazy. We get obsessed with the details because we become perfectionists. Almost everybody was like that. I'm like why do i all of a sudden care about details. I usually am so chill and don't care. I think perfectionism comes from and i would love to hear your thoughts on this. I think it comes from the fear of some sort sort of fear in there then they won't love me. They won't like me. It won't be enough. They'll go tell their friends. It wasn't good enough. There has to be what it's from million percent. Of course you want to curate a beautiful experience but we forget like yes. It's about your surroundings but i don't know about you got some pretty epic magical experiences like in the jones on the on the ground sitting with a bunch of better clarify what i mean with that chris will you please on the show <unk> florida like three other people you know so i think that's what it's not that you don't wanna create epic experience but that could be step two two three four five six once you get that team or whatever that looks like like you can't be an expert in addition and in a design of the room and end in x._y._z. <unk>. Your energy will be drained the point where he won't get to show up the way you want in your actual zone of genius. If you're so concerned about something that is he's not your zone of jesus. I love that you're talking about that. So you guys indy has an awesome event coming up in october. I got to go last year. It was i mean like the people there were freaking awesome. It was so much fun and it is called. <unk> ended october four through the sex in. I am so lucky to get to be speaking there again. I can't freaking lately. Truly it was so much fun you did last year was super cool. You're brave really okay. So is peace be brave so i was like all right there. Apparently they're all about the bravery so i'm like and you text me like a few days before. You're like hey girl. Can i do this instead. It's the scarier thing i wanna do or should i do what i'm supposed to do. I'm like oh. I'm gonna totally have her do what she's afraid to do. It came came back with do it 'cause myself. I was like okay just say it. She'll probably say oh. I don't know stick to whatever that beard for my events or maybe don't do it or whatever and you're like dude. I was like shit. Do it shown have angie leaf out of god really holding true to that her whole life women the damage grand though i did <hes> spoken-word there and just like truly spoke from my a heart was probably one of the first events where really in i don't recommend this unless you've spoken a lot but <unk> like let go ended not plan plan a lot like i knew i was going to get to the point of planning my poem or or saying the wrong but i was like i wanna go out there and speak on fear. <hes> in just one is coming up for me now if i would have done that three years ago when i wasn't really used doing it would have been a shit show but i knew that i wanted to get to the place of just saying like hey. I feel like you right now like no matter what people think i've done before i literally putting myself in the place of something so new to me that i feel exactly like all of you right now. If you had to come up on the stage age in just talk about something so that was powerful for me to like feel them so deeply <unk> resonates hearts. Thank you or providing the space for that because people don't know about events not only transformational for the people in audience. It's transformational for all speakers as well. <hes> like the we are all witnessing each other in the room. That's what's so powerful about. It is the witnessing of each other <hes> and you held such a beautiful space to be able to that. You're so open on his show up just so oh vulnerable in that face <hes> and i think the of the people that you always chosen <unk> all under the same same exact act feeling same exact open heart so that's super exciting in today. We want to share with you. Guys angie's re steps to taking massive action and busting through your fears. I know about you but these are. These are the three things that literally i always need because you're listening to podcasts definitely up leveling. Don't care her at what point if you're taking a literally or you taking the big leap these it always comes back to fear. I love this and it's not just for the woman who is starting this could literally be a woman who's never put her face on story and she's promoting program or product coaching marketing. This could be your first speech in front of a a few hundred people or thirty people. This could be your book and i'm terrified right now. Because it's a new world this could be applicable at any point and i think it always is something we're going to have to work on never ever never really goes away and these are three things that i love to do and i think laura loves these two so we'll we'll jam on how we use these but number one is i asked myself else. Am i already in the worst case scenario and this is super applicable to women in relationships that aren't serving them or jobs. That aren't serving them a lot of times. We're so afraid to leave that average relationship or leave the average job because it's cushy and it's safe and it's we have a 4._0._1._k. And we know what we're getting paid every other friday but when i ask women who are afraid to leap afraid to leave their job because that's that's usually tractors when you want to quit their job and start a side hustle in monetize what they love. I ask them what will happen. What would happen if you do and you fail quote unquote. There really is is no failure but what would happen if let's say you don't make money in the first year or two. They always say well. I would just go back to this job. I'm at right now. My boss would probably take me back. It wouldn't be a huge deal and then they realize what they're saying and they realize they're already in the worst case scenario and i think it's the same with relationships not a relationship expert but i've left a relationship that wasn't amazing and wasn't totally serving me and i think that was the same thing i was already in the worst case scenario of not being fully happy and in love and i was so afraid to leave but i was already in the shitty place that i was afraid of. We're already sitting in pain a lot of times. I think we assume if we jump. We're not going to be in pain but i think we're actually the worst pain. If we don't jump <hes> the second one is where i way out the opportunity unity loss so i way out what will it cost me to not do it more than to actually do it and most humans are afraid of regret and most humans i believe at the end of our lives are going to be more regretful of the things we didn't do than things that we did. Do there was actually a really interesting study where they interviewed people from all different ages races all different countries is they interviewed them on their deathbed. This study. I read a few years ago. It was fascinating and the one thing they all had in common. They all said that there were so many things they wish they would have done chills to hear that because people weren't regretting the time they left the job or said no to the thing or said yes to the thing they were. They were mad and almost upset that they didn't enough time left though you're listening to this and you're alive obviously and you have time left. The time is our greatest asset right so use it to do what you actually want to do and i think that a lot of people people are so afraid to go to the event or start the podcast or start the company or leave the job. They don't realize is if you don't move. You're already again. You're already in that pain and you're going to regret. You're going to feel the pain of regret more than you are of the pain of the action of it so that's what i do. In the last one is actually one of my favorites that i do a lot for four podcasting and speaking so if one of you ladies listening to this want to be a podcast speaker and put yourself out there. Maybe this is even instagram's stories or facebook videos and it's terrifying i i would say you're very outgoing and extroverted. I'm free outgoing and extroverted. I'll talk to a wall. I'm very social but it doesn't mean that i still don't want to kind of in poop my pants before i speak of still a human and so i do this thing that i didn't realize todd herman coined the alter ego effect and this is in his book but i act as if i have another version of myself and she's super brave. She's super bowl. Sometimes i'll give her a name like sasha beyond say whatever it is this bold nations girl who will have the courageous conversations she will pick up the phone she will pitch. She will get up on the stage and act as if she's been there. She'll walk into the room and feel like she's worthy and that woman is you. I have to harness even if i feel like i'm acting in faking it for a moment. I have to harness her before i step on stage or before i press record cord so that has been really helpful for me. It's almost as if i have two versions of myself. What your life is crazy. It is truly but it's actually healthy to know that we have these issue versions. Okay there is much goodness in all of that so i'm gonna go back to the first one <hes> am i already in the worst case scenario. I freaking king love that because i have never said that here's what i use now in use both of these so my ardian worst-case scenario if i even for some reason i find that a not so here's something i do so here's what i'm even doing right now with this thing that i want to start. I'm sitting getting in. What i believe is worse case scenario so i'm well. I'm going to what i think is my picture of risque sneers of what i'm afraid of so what i do is i picture like losing everything and i picture leg what people will think of me and issur just like what is the worst possible double thing that can happen like me really thoroughly screwing up when i meditate on it may sit in that pain and i'm like okay that really sucks but i also also know that i am fully capable of coming back from it and then i go in sit in what if i don't do it so what you were talking about on the second one and and i put those together in like a meditation for myself in i sit in that every morning of you know what could be the worst case scenario or like you said m i already in a lot of people are but then there's going to be honest and there's people like you and i who have a little more to lose. We've made maybe we've made more money. Maybe we have our businesses. Maybe we have have these relationships. Maybe we feel like we have a reputation which is all ego and super mess up anyway like it's read all your human in so you feel like you might apple more to lose and you know there's a lot of value in lake having nothing to lose him being at rock bottom when you're first starting out so actually when people are like i'm camera bottom. I'm too scared. I'm like no. That's more valuable yeah. You have literally less to lose so i. I'm always like waiting waiting out exactly what you said. What's the opportunity loss. I sit like on my deathbed in my going to be okay with biz best life every day like am i gonna be able to wake up a. Not feel super on purpose every day in leg gonna be able to find a lot of purpose and passion in the mundane and in your answer's yes. That's great too but i don't think i don't think we're speaking to her today. Yeah you know another thing that just came to mind and i think you've discussed this a few times over the years and i love this concept of. If you have an idea or you have a voice you have some that you wanna get out there. It almost feels like it would kill you for you to not do it ought to be the person who executes the idea or the creative idea and it's almost as if the universe who is this who who talked about this concept where the universe decides sides to give a few people the opportunity and then if you don't execute on it. It's on to the next person any plato that i think so <laughter>. I can't remember what it's called but it's an actual <hes> whoever is super smart listed as laughing but they're like oh gosh but it does and it's it's. I think it's a healthy motivator not to the degree of eagle or competition but to a i really want to be the person who holds this. I wanna be the vessel that does this. Because even the book concepts i sat for a minute and thought of another person writing it and then go into the bookstore and realizing that she wrote it and it killed me inside. It really really really hurt me and i think it was a sign like angie just do it. Just put it out there. Just do it because you wanna be the vessel for it. Just do it so i think sometimes that's it as well for women who are super creative but our free depress publish. It's like just get it out there because someone else is going to eventually and that's fine million percent will again and it is is it. The theory of how wadia are delivered. They're all out there and they're being put on a lot of people's hearts but it's whoever decides to leave at first orch and i want to talk about this like like even if it did come out because a lot of books on tribe that were coming out in the asthma was coming out people. Were really talking about it but you were still. I was still saying it in such a different way that it's like it's getting everyone's gonna find their flavor so someone's like oh see this idea did come out of that came out. You guys how many brands hands of soda are out there that keep them on what i believe. Angie i go to whole foods in every time there's a new brand and guess who wants to try it me because i'm a frigging consumer so don't and you're going to sell to we love to consume uh-huh and one brand of is not enough for me not enough. I need alabama overhead. What about the alter ego affect you do this before you speak when you're nervous service and you're just kind of like in your head versus in your heart. Do you ever pretend that you're almost like you're someone else. It's still but it's someone braver billion percent. I feel like i disappoint people when i need them because i'm like oh. I'm ori- is just as cold real life. Okay prov is oh. Oh am i supposed to be super extroverted at this dinner because right now. I feel like just being really quiet like you just keeping to myself in. I'm like oh. Do you think income that person. That's always on the podcast like super going. It's it's you tap into that personality that just pushes that out in whether you think you have it or not i i can necessarily think there was a there's a knowing that you're like you can if you can see yourself stages or you see yourself bigger than you even spoken to the people before like as far as like you. Don't let people know that this person's inside you there in you. They're just waiting to come out. You just need the platform and they need to stage in. They need the the practice <hes> but absolutely i use that all of the time like before i go on stage. I'm just like i say prayer. My god take the wheel like let you know <unk>. Let me become the person who like jen like infiltrate their hearts and like have them what they need to hear in like. Let me be the biggest which is craziest most fun version of myself because when i'm on stage ask actually asked now for like my fun version of myself to come out. I'm like what we'd be funny. Let me like knock down their walls. Let me whatever that looks like but then i'm like that's not how you want me to be so whatever it is. I'm like lemme big. You know high. I love that yeah. I say just have fun. Let me be the most brave version of myself. What would brave angie say what she cracks that joke because there's version. I mean that's like god. They won't think it's funny. What if it doesn't land that's weird. I heard that the reversion to me. He's like just say that weird thing and so it's interesting to to have those two talking to each other when you're live on stage and you can't edit it. It's not like a podcast. We can put the a joke back in like people say it or not like you got to be quick on your feet and decide in the moment which makes public speaking really terrifying but so don't you love like comedians for that reason sometimes for my event a watch comedians because i need to see how fearless they are going for a joke. That could totally slop like it's like my secret dream career of one day. You guys like what happened to jewish became as medium but i love them. I think there's so incredible. I love studying them and i think there is such a sign of courage because they're they're scared. They're very scared. I don't think they're fearless at all. I think they've rehearsed a lot so i think there's value in knowing that that wasn't just a random witty the joke on their feet. That was extremely rehearse so that's something to keep in mind for your these ladies. Listening is that to decrease fear. You have to increase preparation so be art. Show up prepared. Don't just there's a level of winging it but there's also a level of no no absolutely like okay so even when i was saying that's what i i was like. I don't even know if i want to share that about us. That advantages trained like come out and speak i had been speaking in using podcast in like knowing sulfate but even i had had a bit of an outline in my head of where to go but like preparation for me no matter what is the only way for me to feel the old more solid but also just massive action asking what i need in that moment. That's another huge when i'm like if i can't if i can't seem to like get a grip if i'm freaking out i'm like okay well. What do you need to feel safe right now in a lot of times the answer is like i need to talk to a friend like someone who's doing this right now like i need to call angie. You just see if she feels this way we just say. Is this normal right now like a lot of times. We just want a here. Is this normal normal. Oh we're all freaking out. It's so true is this normal. I love that we feel like we're all human and we're in this together. It's like imposter syndrome. I don't think it ever really fully goes away. They they say that oprah minutes before they press go live or their on air. She'll still say sometimes like what am. I doing almost like who am i to be doing this. It's like the real real moment near like oh yeah get back into my body. This can do this. I'm available for this. I can hold the space and you almost have to give yourself that reality. Check i think as your brand grows i think even i don't know i think more imposter syndrome comes on because you have the sense that you have to be perfect or that. They see you in this light. When you see yourself and i see myself as just the regular weird nerdy girl and who's not cool so it so. It's like really matching up all of that. It can be crazy so especially for you ladies. He's listening who are thinking like who am i to be a coach. Who am i to sell these products online. I think realizing that i don't love fake it to you. Make it but i do love embodying the most bold version of you as as you can and as much as you can because eventually she becomes the primary in your body because it never goes away. I don't think you ever like i'm amazing and i'm going to go sell shit chat like i don't think that's what happens. Even me like oh my god what if this is a stupid idea for this event but then it's like thousand people already signed up i'm like why are you sign up right. The weird part of that fifty percent is like this is going to be great. I'm the best than other part of us like oh my god you can't do this and i think that fear gremlin conversation is just so so fascinating the <unk> so let's talk about that a little bit because i think so. I think there's fear but then i think there's of cedars of beer so they're like oh. I'm just scared because i haven't done this before i could fail but there's a million million things that go into into that. The different feeders and i think that what we're feeding is an actual habit of of comparison of jealousy at the end of going back to our failures are playing story in her head of what people making up a story rate so for a lot of people that you here because i know we get so much feedback on daily basis from people of they wanna do what we're doing but they're afraid to be doing x._y._z. Whatever the hell that is or something similar to what we're doing and a lot of what is stopping them when you get regular is like comparison jealousy. It's all been done before whatever that is so talking about that as it's a habit. It's a habit to go on instagram. Compare yourself abbott to go on. Be jealous of your friend who might be doing a little better than you right now because she did something more. Whatever that looks like we're it's her time. <hes> so what do you say to those women. Two things come to mind immediately one. I think that comparison is now in and jealousy or or feeling like i want that girl's life is now one i actually it's a beautiful floor representation of what's possible so my seal woman crushing. It and i'm sure this happening with your book. I want to read a book and i wanted to do well and that there's that feeling but then it's like if she can do it i can do to the same human so she's leading the way and she's showing what's possible so now if i'm scrolling and i'll try not to get into this habit but i'm still human in this will happen. I'm like damn. I want that. I want that life or why. Can i have that one. It's myself a reality. Check that sometimes i'm not. I'm not ready to be that woman yet to execute that and i need to go through some more failures or i need to go through some years of life a lot of times people ten years older than me. Of course they've figured that out there are lot. They've had more time on this earth so being kind to myself and saying hey. It's just a time issue hugh. It's haven't failed enough issue if she's doing it. Of course it's possible for you. Then and i actually love seeing women crush it in have things that i wanna go. I wanna see my book and walmart one day so if she's seen in her book walmart i i can't wait for that moment to may not be for another five years but it showing us what's possible and then i also love to do a healthy reality check of do. I actually want her life style. Do i want her life and we don't really know what it's like and i think you and i have jammed on this with even public. Speaking people see people speaking all the time every weekend and think that it's the life but we we don't see the realities of that energy investment in the time investment in what that lifestyle would look like so whenever you gals are scrolling. It's laurie me anybody else to even looking at what you want in life may not be what we want and that's okay and i don't think we're all supposed to have the same life style kinda. Do just definitely. I do as well just to get myself back to you. You a grounded places like okay focus on you blinders on don't waste time thinking about what she's doing because it's not worth your time is so not worth your time. It's like so what are some things that you would do or help someone with when their stock in the scroll in comparison something different to say something quick tear saw aw 'cause i think for me what's really powerful. Is i literally do everything that you just said to a t. Which guys listening. Let's like when i had asked ngos. She has three precept of like <hes> taking action breaking through fear and she named them. I was like holy shit. I do the same thing because there are tried and true things that work and i'll tell you the more conversations i haven't engine no you notice from your podcast in just from you know like when you up level people you hang out with like success. Obviously leaves clues in there is a pass. It's look a little different but there's gonna be things that i'm like i do that. I say that and we do this. Oh my god. That's what i figured out. Oh my god. That's how i have to look at. Everything that she said is everything that i do so if you can get on lockdown it's pretty much jennifer shurmur ca for you because you're a few an historical truths. You can't change the truth. It's a truce so i do believe that these are like historical truths for people so conohere megan history angie. I dot com so it's gonna go by that but it's also which i know this word is overused in the personal development world hot words right now. We're like abundance. It's holding space race down here in san diego but i actually just got a tattoo of an an percents with an an sign and it's a good reminder for me especially as a crater to to remember knbr that just because i'll give you guys a very tangible example just because let's say five hundred thousand million people by lauries book doesn't mean that they're not also co go by mine hi in or someone else's who's in that same field of personal development for females and it's weird that our brain thinks wolf. They're going to go buy one thing they can go to another right. You have an event i've been about they can actually should go to they should go to both because they're very different in great ways. You can't provide there and it's it's really interesting when you get to that point when you realize there's millions of humans you need at our help and we actually only need a very small small part of the market to actually monetize to make full time so why why even worried about this lack of abundance abundance we can all by everybody's booking everyone's events and it isn't an either or and that was huge for me is taken out but were number two is. I consume more than i create so i have this the commitments to myself every day that if i'm going to make an edgy post or do i do stories. I need to get those done before. I am consuming a bunch of other people's because what happens is next next thing you know it's three pm and i feel like a piece of because cheryl did eight million stories about something cool and i did end and unlike state on my couch eating cheryl cheryl era. I'm hearing my potato chips. So i feel like great more than you consume. I say great rida rida four times more than you consume ideally especially in the beginning b. in that creation zone yeah and then this may sound a little taboo but i think it's healthy to go in seasons where you unsubscribe from people who make you feel that way so like email lists. I'll just go through cleanup clean up clean enough because if i'm constantly hearing about creative ideas of other things and i'll i'll think oh my god i have to go do that and especially if you are writing a book they'll say like don't read a lot of books and that john on rougher a bit. You can go back and read them whenever you want but just for that year that you're writing it. Just don't read any here liba my friend who you know as well clearly but only this she was like don't read books for a while like what do you mean. I love books. She's like just because you're going to feel like you're you know have the words come through you always and just have a clean slate so i'm just kinda re studying a clean slate and and i think a lot of girls due to unsubscribe people that make them feel like a piece of poop. If you're following sharon who has a six pack and six kids and she lives in hawaii. Well just don't follow her bed because she's great and all but maybe you just need to realize that you're enough in nazi sharing enter six pack intersex kids every day you know and it's all probably edited anyway. Those are fake children in fake apps okay but you think instagram is like these models all day long. You're just like oh man. Oh oh man the double six will get you every time it's so true but it's all edited so ladies. It really is because i'm just like now. This takes so much work so you've got to decide what you wanna be like. I love that decide. What you want to be decide. Who you want to decide where you want your energy to go. That's been so huge for me because there's the whole million different trains right. It's like go. We will make sure you're commenting mitchell. You're supporting. This is going to be a great idea and then you're like wait. Maybe this is bad for me for or this season but i'm in so i do think it's going to be like like you said like massive pivots. Maybe it's gonna be for a little while. You'd have to do that if you're here's the deal. I feel like if you're feeling confused and you're feeling lost. There's obviously something wrong with what you're doing right now so even just heidi opposite to get a different result so i think people are like i don't know what to do and i'm like just do the opposite then you are like across bitter go. Do yoga like you are consuming a bunch of fitness people right now or a bunch of businesswomen or people who have event please only consume other people or stay at lake like i was talking about like i wanted inspiration. I was like i don't want inspiration from people in there's drama because i feel too much like i need to be. It's it's funny. I'm like oh my god. I can't look at marie forleo gabby bernstein or daniel report for a while while i was writing my book or doing some speaking stuff because they inspire me so much. I didn't want to feel like i i found that i was like oh. I need need to be them in order to do this so i kind of watched that for a while and totally pivot and do like the comedians and the totally different genre what actresses what poets like why because i wanted to like really experienced a totally different side of myself that made me start thinking more in in someone who has less likely to compare myself to inspire by so you have to take big pivots in what you're doing. If you're feeling like okay this got me to wear a need to be to again like to start the thing or to get where i need but now it's making you feel that doesn't make them bad at all. You'll go back to them. I'm sure or not you'll go to something different different but that's so important to say because there are people who have told me and i know probably even for you. They're like i've had this. Stop watching you because i felt so bad for a while and i'm like great <unk>. Consume someone else you know place to be when you hear it but then it's also like i totally get it tone yeah i. I had this conversation with a friend the other day and i was like oh my god. There's this moment of. I need to be brown then because my my message is about fear and courage and it's like no i don't my my job on this planet is not to go beat <unk> brown twenty years older than me amazing. I love her but that's not my job here. My sister just duplicate what she's doing. No it's my story of courage and bravery in a different generation and a different humans perspective of it by goal is to be the best angie that can be before. I die. I mean that's really your goal as well to be the best larry harder you can be and i don't i would hate for a girl to think that then she has to write her book like mine and it's just it becomes this really vicious trap of everyone's basically creating the same content content and then nothing's original and i think being a creative is about really getting the downloads from wherever it comes through and i don't know about you but most of my by post i do the best by content that does the best is the ones that was just surely ah download while i was in yoga on a walk i create actually all my content on walks voice it to myself and my notepad and that's when it feels good. It feels genuine. It feels authentic and then i don't feel like anyone else posted about this and it just feels good and it converts better too so i think our genetics behind your post host is really important ladies because i get this question on instagram and and content it should come from your heart and feel like it's something you have to get out there and the post will do better if you feel like you're trading posts because it's trendy or because another fitness coach created it then. It's probably not gonna do well because you're not the energetic behind. A post is not there. Oh man i'm so fled <unk> and we have our post right that like you're. You just need to get content out guy but i do love. That's what i'd be too. I put it in my notes section nine. Thank god post about that so i will always be because you need to otherwise you go to sedan sit to go record a couple podcasts every week. I'm like i don't know what to say so now. I have to get the ball. I'm inspired her inspiration. If you guys like i'm just not getting inspiration than you probably need to switch up some energy in your life. You got it totally. Go mix up that energy when i'm not inspired. It's because i'm doing the same damn thing all the time and basically it's just about getting new perspective in your life because you're looking at saint in the same way every day so you can go get a new angle whether that's a new workout or group of friends or whatever it is like a new angle will bring so much new perspective effective which will inspire us to talk about it <hes> so okay so we are three steps which are frigging awesome but i wanna wrap up number one. I want to make sure people know well how to get to your event. You get on a plane or a train or how do you get there. You jump in your car. Neuter your in wag in a horse. You guys can go to pacey brave dot com negga ticket. You guys can use the code lori for one hundred dollars off tickets my team just activated evaded that this morning so laurie hundred dollars off tickets humpty laurie me all the all the other amazing speakers and it's going to be a blast in gorgeous san diego so if you gals have never never been to san diego. It's like a little slice of heaven so you're eleven. Oh god i mean the fact that the event is they're kind of like. Come on you. Go and there's this vast. Ask literally like the the best energy. It's so calm. It's so clean. It's a very creative energy to so it just the nice little getaway especially for you. Moms uh-huh you may be living in the midwest and you you just need to get away from you know crazy. Kids lived in the mid west and you can get some really great weather. It's it's like serb okay. What's one last thing that you want to be just around becoming the highest version of yourself going after your dream not occurring what other people say. That's what i wanna hear about. Ooh that's i didn't even had even realize we would riff on that saying that it turned into not giving a shit about what other people think but i guess my mike closing remark would be to start before you're ready. That's really one of my favorite concepts to jam on and i think it's so important i think so many people are waiting until they feel ready and i know lori will back me up on this. There never will be a day where you actually feel fully prepared so you do your best. You'll bring your bravest version of yourself but i wasn't wasn't ready to host events and then i hosted events. I just googled it. I think text you and chris. I'm like hey get some pointers and then you guys were awesome and totally gave me feedback and then i a higher to planner and just kind of figured it out along the way and i think whatever you ladies are doing. It's not like you're an expert at something and then you do it and you have to find out in the process and you just just have to get a little messy with it so that would be my message to you today. You're listening to this and you feel like you need to wait or put it off. You have to start before it feels completely ready <hes> <hes> you is if you love his episode. Make sure you texted to a friend right now. Indefinitely definitely tag angie share on stories what war the biggest takeaway was of course if you're coming event and to get your tickets. It's all in the show notes guys so you can just head on over there and until next time or you're happy i everyone tutorials. Thank you so much for spending this time with me on the earn your happy podcast. I am so glad glad that you stopped by. If you could take one second to share this episode with someone you think would love it that would be absolutely amazing and we would be forever ever grateful also. Please leave us a review.

(Part 2) How Do You Make Money Podcasting? Brand Sponsorships For Your Podcast? Blogging Or Podcasting? Behind The Mic with Stefanie Gass

"What's up? What's up? This is part two of behind the MIC with Stephanie Gas. If you haven't listened to part one, go back, listen to the episode. Right before this one and get ready to take notes friend because these two episodes are packed with some chicken nuggets to help you launch, grow and monetize your podcast. We're question for my fellow entrepreneurs who also suffer from S. B S Squirrel Brain Syndrome. Gay Add if you also have SPF s keep listening my friend. Do you wish there was something you could take? That would give you insane focus during your workday, but is also completely natural and caffeine free is yes I have something for you. That may just fix your Squirrel Brain Syndrome. It's one of my best brain, Haxhi grits and something I take before I record every single podcast and every single time before I. Speak on stage. It's called. Be Liquor brain fuel over the years. I've tried so many things to help me with my focus and I'm so. So happy. That I found something that actually works Felix Health with fighting brain fog, beating the afternoon slump, incredible focus for your workday supporting your focus your mental energy, your productivity. Oh my gosh, it's my little obsession, and if you follow me on ID stories, you know I'm taking shots every single day to keep me focused. If you're ready to not suffer from Squirrel, Breen Syndrome anymore head to beekeepers. NATURALS DOT COM use the Code Angie Lee to save beekeepers natural dot com code. Angie Lee saves you Moolah. I'm so excited. Let me know. How would help USPS I love you I, Love Your Brain, and your brain is going to love Felix. I read a stat a while ago and it was. There was one podcast every thousand blogs. Yeah, so to me I'm thinking. This is still such a opportunity for everyone, and even if ten people started show, only one of those people will stick with it for six months, plus that's why I'm telling you. That's the magic number. You guys. You have to dig in whatever you pick whatever. Whatever you do in Life Stop Getting Shiny Object Syndrome stop bopping around. Stop doing what every coach tells you to do, and just pick one thing that is calling to your heart. Go there and do not look up for six months. If that means you on, follow, people stop listening to people. Stop hiring every single coach or every single program and just produce instead of concealed home. At Tattoo late. All my Gosh, we are at Church Stephanie leads all. Please take a stance and clap because that is it commit to something dulas better and don't look up for at least eggs months a year, and then tell us if you want to keep podcast, but try it out. You're never going to know if you like it or you're good at it unless you. You try ray guys ready. Let's go. You just got to try and guess what if after a year you absolutely hate it. You don't like it. You're not into it. You're not feeling. It is not your jam at all. That's fine. You can come back and and you know what guys taught me a lot, but I'm not GonNa do it. That's fine, but. Don't don't dog already one ten minute episode, and then two days later, they knew. You. ME. You know okay. You got a least consistent for six months to year wanted to episodes of we doing your best. Come on putting some effort, and then we'll talk about it, but you can't produce one episode and expect for it to be Joe Rogan okay, exactly yeah, and it does take work. It takes to be a podcast right ange like we wanted to get into this to. You're probably thinking. How much time does actually take. Take can I actually do it can actually afford to host my own show, and so what I teach is you're going to have. There are ways to get better at this process to automate more certain things. You can outsource for super cheap. Honestly I mean I produce two shows a week roughly thirty minutes I only spend two hours on this whole podcast. That I run because I outsource a lot of things in same for Angie which. which will teach you? Guys had to do that in our program, but in essence, everyone has time to do this. Because this is how you touched thousands of people in those two hours, instead of getting all people's messages or cold marketing or coming up with content that dies in twenty four hours on instagram or facebook. No shade that I don't believe we can grow a huge organic following on social anymore because they own the narrative they're. They're hiding. US. I've been shadow banned just because I used a weird hashtag before and I'm like. What do you mean like Hashtag the thing, but in podcasting, you're free. You're free to do and say whatever you WanNa do and say, and you're going to show up with one of your time and touch thousands of people forever five years from now. Your had a meal prep as a busy mom, episode could go viral five years from. Because it's evergreen guys coming from somebody who not tacky and all about efficiency and business podcast is probably one of the most efficient things you can do with the greatest Roi and not just saying this I would be honest if I thought it was a waste of time. You guys if it's good content and you released to twenty episodes a week. Let's say it's two twenty minute episodes a week total. took you maybe two to three? Three hours to record that it okay. There's three hours of your week that ideally over time is going to hit hundreds, if not thousands of people and it's valuable in those episodes, you have ads that are you have brand sponsorships, or you're promoting your products and programs? It's evergreen and lives on forever. It's easy to edit I mean you guys. The Roi podcasting is insane. It's insane actually I'm surprised. More people don't do it and. And we're the greatest things to is. It establishes you as an expert ended immediately gives you credibility because you're stepping into the teacher role, and especially when you guys know Emma Niche Nerd, when you're really honing your niche as as this fitness, coach or light coach, relationship, coach, or whatever it is you. Do you have to realize that people respects people who have established credibility and who have said Hey I'm the expert in this thing. Thing and this is what I teach right end for you now stepping into that role saying hey, I'm going to teach podcasting like this is the thing that I'm great at. It helped me build my business. I think that's so powerful and I think the fact that you've owned. This niche is so powerful. Right in. It's really established you as an expert so I've been. podcastone is a great place to to build your authority, yeah! And those of you may be thinking. Will can I afford it engineer just talking about this in the beginning. I edited all my own stuff. Guys. It's not hard to edit, and we teach you that it's not hard to edit. It's not hard to come up with the content map. We teach you that it's not hard to your Avatar is it's all going to be covered for you like everything? You need the stuff that's keeping you stock engine I thought of it. That's why we're working together to help. You guys do this right now. Because almost felt like it's a disservice for. For you not to have long form content right now and especially how the world is transitioning more heavily than ever into online. We want to have this resource, so you can do that yourself. You can edit yourself. You can promote yourself I use pinterest and a mix of instagram stories like Ange as how I then go deeper with my audience and seventeen. What is it seventeen? Thousand of my website views a month. Come from pinterest and my podcast, just totally free organic marketing. They then come over and follow us on I g right. I'm shange the same way, and then we get into the dams of people. I put them into a facebook group and I cultivate them, so can do this with the time and resources you. Have I mean worst case record on your phone and pay nine bucks a month for your host. Truly you could get away with that for. For a few for a minute right? Yeah, nine to ten bucks to host, because in the beginning, you don't have that many downloads, so you're not paying a huge hosting fee and then find some on fiber or upward dot com, those are two great outsourcing sites. Find someone on cyber, or upward or me and I'll tell you about my amazing editors that I've worked with are amazing and. I hate the word cheap, but find a low investment, low cost editor and you guys. You're looking at a hundred two hundred bucks after that not events you start a podcast and be consistent, but if you watch youtube videos, and or go through steps, course, which is incredible, and we're GONNA be talking about in a moment. You could teach yourself to edit really fast. You don't have to be a tacky and you good. Listener either trading tire money right so then. Yeah, it's crossing time, but it's so easy to do in the beginning, because it's not a video file, and then you're looking at less than a hundred bucks a month to start. It'd be consistent. You've got your phone. You're doing your editing got hosting three host the actual audio file right in the net hosting site talks to Lipson or sorry inside I. I use his lips in which then talks to you I tunes, a Soundcloud, spotify but if you think about it again I can't get over. The Roi of like should be more expensive. These hosting sites could make it like literally double there I. Mean Hopefully you're listening, but you should make it more expensive. You know what I'm saying. It's just crazy to me that this medium exists and. It's just so powerful so if you're listening to this end again, you have that nudging you to do it. I cannot encourage you more, and we are your cheerleaders to tell you you can do it. You're good enough. Now is the time it's not too late and. Gosh I just it makes me happy to. I mean. We haven't even covered that part of it, but the fulfillment that you receive realizing that your message can help people is the most invaluable. It's priceless feeling in the world. Right it just it's it's unmatched. It's just the best to know that you can make an impact in smaller big way. L., Steph Taliban about this course and let's chat a little bit about why became together and then we'll finish up with more juicy questions on repurposing. Media help you grow organs. So y'all know. Angie is truly gifted at big picture strategy. Right at sales at marketing. She's the niche nerd. Hey, we love Angie and Angie. Had this incredible start to a podcast course that covered all of those things and then me. I am more of a detail oriented person I'm very tech savvy. I'm really focused on analytics of what's working. What's not working growth strategy? So what we did is we came together. Together and we were like Hey, what? We partnered to serve Angie's audience and give them all of the great stuff. Andrew already had for you guys in her podcast course and we paired it with mine so that you had literally everything at your fingertips from the niche, the focus the how to podcast how to record how to edit how to get stellar guests how to get spots on big guests. Had Track how to come up with content great titles SEO? You guys literally every single thing that Angie. I have done to grow successful podcasts is in this product. Okay, so we both were like heck, Ya Almaz that held the can say that on your show hells. Yeah, let's do it okay, and so we put this together. After I saw the thing as like Angie Lee. We cannot give us away for five hundred dollars and she's like we have to because. My girls need this. They need this so much and to help right now.

That's why when you reach out to me. I was like Oh my God the magazine and you guys know. My listeners I only promote things that I'm obsessed with. UH, because, if not then that's just not authentic right and that's just not genuine, so win I saw Stephanie's course I was like Oh. My God, this is exactly what you guys need. It's the. It's the tangible side. It's the actual steps in the strategy is to podcasting, because there are so many parts of podcast rates setting it up. How do you monetize it? How do you grow the show? What do you do when you launch will rub Barbara others so much that goes into it right I'm not saying it's not fun I, mean I. It doesn't feel like work for me, but it's it's. It's still works right, and it's going to save you such a headache so time in stress to a guy during that, you have all of those questions that you probably would be google lane covered for you and have Stephanie as your coaches. Amazing is analyzed the sweetest humid ever. You're such a good leader in coach, and you're just so inspiring. See like you make me just WanNa. Do Better at podcast.

Impressed, pause, go check it out or listen to the rest of this episode, and check it out after, but I would love love. Love you inside there. Let me know when you dive in so there. You guys got like you literally here. We go I love. Love I love teaching I'm doing you guys literally just heard us plug something in the middle of an episode, but it was authentic, and it's something that Stephanie has for you and I have partnered with her, and you're hearing US mentioned the opportunity you know and I think that's what makes podcasting so real is that this is literally just a real conversation. You're hearing an opportunity that we have or a product that we have for you so yeah. They as every single one of you can do I think one of the coolest things about podcasting Angie is a way for us to sell without being sales -I. Everyone's always looking for that answer. How do I sell my never marketing products or my course or my books, or my or my my coaching? While you show up and talk just like this and you teach anyone spire. Give away free stuff. Stuff. Give it all away and then you mention by the way want more. Here's something I've got for you and you sell something every single time have an episode, but if if you were to ask my audience, they'd say. Oh never sells on her show. 'cause it's a casual mention, so take that. No, if you take nothing from this episode, you guys. How did he end? Deny casually mentioned something. You need to do. Yeah that's what I love about it is it never feels like selling? It just feels like chatting about things that you're obsessed with and that you love and. I believe. If you're an integrity, you know what products to say. Yes, you know what things to say. No To in especially me, I'm I'm an affiliate marketer. That's a large part of my business and my business model and I say noticed show anything, and so many people have kitschy for their podcast. Mainly promote my podcast cores down like no. This is the Monday love so I think it's important to you. You know what your show stands for. Know what it doesn't stand for and to get picky to be picky sooner than you think you. You can be right I think people think Oh, I'll just say yes to everything in the beginning highs. Don't do that. You're going to dilute your show. Don't be cheesier, lighter audience. Just just be real. It's not worth fifty bucks year. Narrative sound, some snake oil, okay. Just! Be Real with it. okay speaking of that really quick. My next question is how do you make money podcasting? Okay, such a great question and I think when your audience is really small, or maybe you're starting your podcast to grow and audience, which is a great Jeremy Start the podcast before the audience. If you have nothing today, that's how we grow it, so we start the show. You'RE NOT GONNA. Get quote, unquote, big sponsors right away because sponsors are paying you based on your audience and download size so what I always. Always recommend people that are newer in podcasting is to come up with a product suite of your own. Some entry level products twenty, seven, forty, seven five hundred bucks that you plug yourself so if you're this busy, we've been talking about this. Mama, who does fitness in wellness? Maybe she has the macro workbook, and it sells for twenty seven bucks created in Cambe pitch it on your podcast, and now you're starting to monetize show with your own stuff. Why am I gonNa Miss? Your own stuff brings in ninety plus percent profit margin. But if you're not there yet or you, you have something that you don't WanNa teach, but it's important to your audience like this. Like Andy didn't WanNA. Come up with a whole podcast course with tech. She said I'M GONNA affiliate with Stephanie and she found who she wants to affiliate for. So you guys can do, is they? Have a macro course, but there is when I love. Let me plug this one and become an affiliate marketer for this other course, and then you start plugging those into your show casually casually mentioning remembering, it takes seven to fifteen times for people to hear things actually purchase, so you're constantly bringing that up friend of mine friend of Mine Front of mine. And then over time, people are going to start buying from you. My goal was if I could sell one course every time every day I wanted to sell one course every day. I think it took four podcasting for me to pass that and I was like what is happening. So it's all about that, it's monetize ing using your own stuff and begin affiliate next when you pass a certain threshold, an angie can speak more to this. You can start looking at sponsorship opportunities, and you want to share with them about that. Yes, I love this. Sell your own stuff. Sell other people's products in programs. Gosh affiliate marketing and selling your own stuff will always be the top two in the beginning like you said, and then you can transition into what's called brand sponsorships, and this is where brands need to say their name now some of them there is a commission on top of a flat fee some of them. It's just a pure flat fee, and it's a contract. A lot of the have one year. Year contracts with six month contracts with where it's at its base rate every month to say their name during amount of times and a lot of them are brands I've been using have loved for years and years way before they even knew who I was. You guys? I'm talking five six years ago and I reached out to them and said Hey. Love your staff. Let me start out as just. Just an affiliate. Okay I'm one of your affiliate partners I would make ten percent here in there from the products nothing crazy, and then later opened up that discussion for a full blown sponsorship, but again build your show up. Give yourself time have fun way. They just have fun within the beginning no stress to it a big brand, sponsorship or anything like that, and then a year or two down. Down the road or whenever the show released starts to grow, then maybe how those conversations with brands you can create a media kit hitch them or you don't start reaching out to you and say hey, we've heard about your show. A lot of pot agency is now will email me say your show is one that's on our radar. Would you like to promote? This is skinny in say, no pants. I just delete all the emails. Because so far to be his. Probably out is going to go forward. You guys probably know this about me I actually don't really accept any pitches from brands or or a lot of guests. I more go Finan-. I seek them because it's. It's somebody or something that I've already been obsessed with so that's the way I. do it because my show. Show, my life my rules, but you'd be doing any way you want. If you want to take these bitches awesome, sometimes, that is a great way to find out about new new products and new things, but for me I try wellness product or try lifestyle product, and then I'll reach out to them and say hey, I mean gee, about the show. Here's my stats. Here's my demo. Demo, I'd love took my people up with the discount. How does that sound and it's a win? Win Right because not only as a created getting aid to do a lot of hard work to host the show on ours time that I put into this show, but it's also giving you guys. Discount Codes, which is awesome so I I love it. That's my favorite way to. To get paid to be honest. and I think that's great, but I think again. It's so great to also promote your own products and services and do affiliate marketing, and those are usually the three top ways to get paid by passing until you know your Joe Rogan and spotify buys you for one hundred million dollars, which is definitely one of my life goals one day, okay? But you know. I'M you now, but did show is like when that happened you guys. It was so cool because it really showed the power of podcasting, and how powerful it is, and yes, he is literally one of the best in the world, but it just showed that it's possible to grow in podcasting man. What a what a sweet deal! What a nice little deal spotify! Think about it, too, and it's. It's like here's this dude. He's super chill about it. Having conversations with different people like literally that can make a hundred million anything truly can. It's about is your heart in it. Are you here to serve insolvent? Are you really going to stick with it? For the long term the long game and I think that's what your show has done in able to show everyone. Here's Angie you know an today or showing. Showing the senior stories about how messy we were years ago, but you get better over time, but you never gave up on it and now and you get to choose what sponsorship she takes, and it's that's the dream, and so it's about sticking with something long enough to let the fruits of that Labor really bloom for you because you all can do it, we can all do it IOS talking to this brand the other day it was so. Like weird. Do you host your Shell? Where where'd you record your I'm like in my closet. Oh, it's not in a fancy alley studio on like no, it sits definitely my closet because you know hermit live because you know it's carpeted is well also now gory deed, but yeah now and like it just shows like you can literally have an amazing show, and it doesn't need to be fancy. I think that's one of the things I want to demystify is the fancy fanciest of all night entrepreneurship and all of that it's like make it work with white. You have with what you got any budget any time. Constraints takes s course, let's. Yeah let's go. At. All the monetization things we talked about all of that in the course. Yes, so if you're like well, what can I think be? Don't worry. We got you. My last question is repurposing, and I know this is something you cover by chat with a little bit about repurposing, and then let's close his out. Yeah, so my favorite thing in the world is to save time. Okay time to me is much more important than money, and so I'm constantly thinking about. How do I re purpose something? If I'm going to show up, then I need to show up with that one piece of content in as many places as possible so for example, if I'm GonNa go live in my facebook group. which I do once a week. I go from iphone instead at. At my phone on the computer I then turn on zoom the audio plug in the MIC, and I record a podcast with the same content coming out of my mouth I'm going live with hey, synoptic edited, or you guys can get yourself whatever, and then so now I've got a live and a podcast third thing. My podcast host automatically shares my files to youtube now I have a youtube video lasting. We get the transcription might be. It's a quick transcription for me. She creates a quick blog. And if you guys don't have va, you can also totally do this yourself within the course. And, now I'm getting found on Google, and on Yahoo Search so now in four places from one file. The only thing I'm doing clicking record I'm outsourcing the rest, and then finally the last piece of that is I. Go and share a snippet on instagram story. That's it so with one hour of my time showing up on whatever that was five different platforms, so I teach that in the course because I want you guys to save time and quit spinning your wheels creating new content for every single platform. Do it once I mean that easy. Stephanie for President I. Mean I feel lie. This is Gold's. This is juicy guys. Did you love this? There were some serious chicken nuggets in some knowledge.

How To Make Money With Challenges & Pop-Up Groups with Jill Stanton from Screw The 9-5. This Is Going To Blow Your Dang Mind And Make You Money.

"Way. Okay here's the deal. I don't care where you are right now. Maybe you're at the Laundry Mat the gym post-office you're getting the Kalanick you're on the treadmill. I.

I had a funky day I need to shake it off maybe you're having a funky day. And you're like, Oh, I just need to shake it off. So here's here's what we're GONNA do number one. You're going to dance with me for the next twenty seconds to Earth wind and fire September, and then what I want you to do is go on instagram stories and tag me in you dancing to this song bonus points if it's weird I'm probably GonNa, send you a gift. So let's do it. Come on. Let's go. I. I. Don't know what it is about that song but you could be in the worst mood in the world and you play that song and it's like you feel alive you just feel alive. Okay. I hope you loved that. Dance Party let's dive into today's episode with Jill Stein. There's power in starting small it's actually a really smart move to start small workout. You're content bigger at your systems, figure out how you serve and then start to grow. You know there's this crazy rhetoric online that it needs to be. So instant, that's not business that's just like our insane society that everything needs to happen yesterday or that success is built overnight like that's not the case everyone you look up to every master was wants a disaster like everyone start at square one everyone dealt with low numbers everyone fell on their face. That's how they got better. That's why you look up to them because they never stopped. Baby Grandma, are you ready to flip your tits because this episode is so frigging good. It is so good. If you have a membership site, you're launching course you have a coaching program you want to launch do this is the episode for you because my super smart and Super Hilarious Read Jill Stanton from screw ninety five is teaching you how to. Use Challenges and pop up groups to sell out your courses dude. I've launched tons of courses and I've yet to do it in the way that Jill explains and it's brilliant. It's brilliant if you are on the struggle bus right now when it comes to launching your product or your service, you're going to love these conversations with Jill this is part one. Part two is coming up next and if you want more of Jill and you're like edge I need help of course, my program what the heck is a challenge. How can I do this had to Angie Lee dot com slash Jill again that is Angie Lee Dot Com Slash Ju I, Love Jill you're GonNa Love Jill Diving Tear boot camp. Okay if. You know what's good for you you're gonNA. Do it. So Angelique Dot com slash Jill, and let's dive in get a pen and paper right now. No I'm serious. You're going to want one go run home if you're on a run right now and get a pen and paper or just open your iphone notes that that may be easier. Okay. Let's David. I had these kind of facebook groups. When first started I think you had a facebook group. When you first started, they were twenty, four seven right open. All the time takes a lot of bandwidth to moderate your peopling of. And you're constantly having to create content in there. Dipping they did engagement. Wayne's it comes back. It's all the things. Hop Up. Groups are a totally different animal and obsessed with them. So pop up groups are intentional. Their purposeful, their finite and they're driven around a launch promotion they're driven around an offer. So what I mean by that is they are like Max, three weeks long like you do not have a pop-up group for months at a time and you're hoping that people engage this is quick and dirty we are in and out it is actionable it is intentional and we pitch inside them. So I love them because you show up, you serve the hell out other people. Then you make an offer, you give people a great. Experience and the new close down, take us through what this would look like if I'm a wellness coach online. So I'm fat loss coach for Moms I'm thinking of putting together my first course or maybe I've tried to launch chorus, but it flopped it didn't do well only my grandma bought it. Okay. So you're telling me I could start a pop group on facebook. That's the medium that you're going to use to host because it's very and how much would this pop group B. Maybe ten, fifteen, twenty bucks and is this. Instead of premium or should I also do like a free pediatric a free download to get people's emails? Okay. Great. So if you are super new and you do not have an audience or you don't have list or anything like that, I'm always going to suggest that you do it free for the first round. Why one it's easier to get people enrolled obviously, a Freebie is easier to pitch than a paid group, right? So are paid experience. So if you were just getting started if you don't have like at least One hundred people following you or on your email list hosting free. The benefit of that is it allows you to work out your content figure out what to teach, what not to teach where people fall off where they kind of get stuck where you overwhelm people, how to pitch, how not to pitch like it allows you to work out the kinks of how you present how you host these pop up groups in how you pitch inside them. Because the first time you run one of these, you will absolutely overwhelmed people because. Who is an entrepreneur essentially wants to help people were all driven to show up in serve, and so we WANNA make it as action packed as possible, and typically in the beginning that looks like us giving all the things. And providing all the information possible in order to give quote unquote great experience. But what it actually does is it overwhelms people and it gets them stuck. So run it for the first time free. Especially, if you're just starting out get people in your world workout that content figure out your system, and then the next time you go to run up because the beauty of these is this is a repeatable sale system. Now IT IS A. Dangerously, effective sales process when you use pop-up groups right and so you read them again to get it out of your system, and then they go into being this like rinse and repeat cycle. So you host like four or five. If you're extra daring six times a year and it just becomes this reliable repeatable dependable source of income for Your Business. I'll so is a pop group and a challenge synonymous is that basically the? Challenges, we call ours boot camps, workshops summit. Any of that kind of stuff can be hosted inside a pop-up group. So the pop-up Group Excel itself is just essentially the container where you keep everyone you host all your live trainings they can watch the replays and they can build a sense of community that's the pop-up itself but whether you're doing a challenger Boot camp or something that's more like intentional around the content, the experience you create for people does that make sense? Yeah. Okay. So going back to the health coach example, if I was a health coach and I wanted to help women or whoever lose weight and feel better, maybe I would do pop group around. So. Let me quick say this one thing I always want to make sure that people know is in your pop group you were teaching the what and the why you are not teaching how to that is what you're offers for. Okay. So we are staying far far away from like this is how to do this. This is how to set up this. Now, we are teaching what they need to know and why they need to know why it matters. So if I was a health coach and I wanted to help people lose weight than my pop group, I would probably do something actually just suggested this to another coach. I'm just GONNA use it again it's. Called like shed and shred they are shedding their old believes right because if you are someone who is overweight struggled to lose weight, you struggled to get energy. Want you typically identify as someone who is overweight? You have the beliefs of someone who is overweight I. am Roy I overeat because I choose food as comfort source because there are certain beliefs or identities that you have wrapped up into you being overweight or you not being healthy or you not having the energy or looking the way that you want. So we help them shred and shed those old beliefs we work on the inner game so that we can remove all the obstacles over those five days. So we. Knocked down all these beliefs, right maybe one day or one belief per day that you help them overcome because really awareness is the first step to any amount of change in your business in your life personally whatever right and so you help them become aware of the thoughts, their thinking or the beliefs they believe around their ability to lose weight or not. You knock those down and you set them up for the next step, which is the offer, which is the how should be kept for your offer because that's where you provide the real transformation like the ultimate transformation right and we can talk about like promises and offers all of this stuff because I think that's key. If, you are ever planning on running a pop up group. I want you to make sure you have an offer dial then absolutely and not just like I'm a health coach who helps big-hearted women get unstuck or you know we live pounds in just a bit more transformational and clear than just like these bank statements that seem to circulate around the Web, and then people wonder why there stuff isn't working and it's clear. It's because you don't have clarity around your offer. So if you don't have clarity around your offer engine, I have something for you anyways. But like don't do a pop group if you don't have clarity around your offer and you don't have a dial. On why the title and the focus of the pop up needs to be specific and it cannot be just get healthy for the holidays challenge eat healthy for summer get your summer by to feel good challenge, which is like the most vague. Thing ever is not unique and is not compelling anymore and people have seen it. Right. So when we are thinking about the purpose of our pop-up group, we really have to consider the full customer journey and all the roadblocks that they face in that journey for us for example. So we run these things called course creators, boot camps they are really our way of serving course graders in coaches dial in their offer so. That it's so damn compelling. It practically sells itself right. So there are certain elements that we hit in there but our main offer our signature program is called the pop-up group accelerator, and so I know that if someone is GonNa say, yes to the pop group accelerator, will they need to have something to sell? That is a main roadblock that people face when coming into our world. So that's what we made our pop-up group. Does that make sense our pop-up group knocks down the biggest domino or helps them overcome the biggest roadblock that stops them from saying yes to our main offer, I need people to have an offer to sell if they WANNA use pop-up groups right. So we made our entire course graders bootcamp around helping them dial in their offer. So it actually converts what could you think of if you are a health coach and you have the certain outcome or if you're a business coach or one of our big success stories is dude named Jordan and he teaches fly fishing like it works in so. Many different spaces right. And so what are the main road blocks or obstacles or challenges? Your ideal customer faces and how can you use the main one like the biggest one that stops them from saying yes to your main offer and create that into your popup group. Yes. Okay. That's juicy. Let's say I'm a health and wellness coach and I'm going to run a pop up group called the seven days more energy for burnt-out moms. Is that good? Is Specific Enough? Is that time link? Okay and then what I'm going to do inside of there is talk about the what the why mindset. Reverse all that stuff, and then how is going to be in the course that on day seven I mentioned them I offer. But my question is what one is specific enough, and then two once they're in the pop up, they did pay a little bit. Let's say was twenty seven Bucks Thirty Bucks. So I need to give them a little bit of of the how right a sprinkle or well I love it similar to what you're referencing with brandon like he says, you teach them what to do and why they need to do it. But the how is the main offer the how? Is the big transformation that you promise inside your signature program. So you actually do not give away all the things inside the pop-up group that will overwhelm the hell out of people and when someone is overwhelmed, they disengage they don't get value they don't move forward they stay stuck in inaction and overwhelmed and confusion and what the fuck nece right and so that is why we actually intentionally dial back how much we teach so that we deliver one main outcome in the pop up group if I was a burnt-out mom needed more energy for kind of sort of accurate to me right now. I do have a toddler who straps my energy. Like dive into this Baba. The sign. Up Link. So I probably make the title a bit more compelling would speak to who it's four. So maybe it would be like like what is the outcome? Right? The energetic mom like someone who is full of life full of energy can keep up with their kids you know like happy energetic MOMS God damn. Please don't call it that that's the worst. By. Grandma. But something like that like we chose course creators boot camp because this boot camp is someone who wants to create a course you know what I mean or we have someone who teaches softball coaches, how to help their teams have more fun and win more games through teaching the mental toughness side of the game not just the mechanics of the game. It's all mindset stuff like what happens if I lose or what happens if I strikeout or what happens you know? All these kind of things. How do I empower my team and so we teach the what. Like what do you need to do to empower your team to have more fun on one more games? Why is this important you know and so that's how we structure our content. When we are getting clear on this big promise we wanna keep one sentence explainer. If we can. We want to describe the transformation someone will get when they come in and so for us I'm always going to say we help course creators in coaches dial in their offer and create an offer that so damn compelling. It practically sells itself. You know that if you come join the course graders boot camp, we're going to help you finish your offer. So it actually converts most people who come into those boot camps either don't have a course or a coaching program. Or they do but it's not selling, and so they are like they're banging their heads against the wall because they're like I did everything I. I was told I was supposed to do, but it's not converting why and so we take a look at their like messaging positioning or they don't have a big promise or it's not clear how they get people from where they are to where they wanna be a quick little framework would be do this thing so that you can get this benefit. Right? Does that make sense? So quote or like box? What is brackets? You can see what I'm doing. No one else everyone who's listening what is this bitch talking about? But bracket do this thing so that you can bracket get this result and then you just fill it in with what your outcomes are going to be right the action to get the outcome. So that's a really easy way to start messing with some ideas, throwing things at the wall, pull your audience if you have one check into what they're struggling with like a great way and you know this Angie, I see you doing this all the time on G is. Really taking the pulse of where your audience is what they're struggling with what they need help with, and then you create offers that serve that need. So if you already have audience start asking them when it comes to insert whatever you want to teach, what is your biggest struggle or what is the biggest obstacle you are currently facing and how do you feel about it or how does that make you feel so that you get the internal, it makes me feel like. And this is my main struggle, which is the external, and so from there, we can start to package this into like this cohesive Vata's compelling pop up group or challenge that sits inside a pop-up group. Yes, my niche heart is obsessed with this part of the conversation because I just get. So excited when people talk about speaking to the benefit lady language or the main point of the promises because guys listen I've helped probably thousands of health coaches at this point over the last few years to nail down their niche and their positioning in. View host challenger Pablo Group that's called. Get healthy for the holidays or get feel good for your. feel-good, life. Feel good for life Mama's or something like that. It's Tuesday it's not going to be compelling enough for somebody to say, Oh, my Gosh, I need that oh my gosh that's exactly what I'm looking for right now in this season of my life, it's specific. So it's You guys may get benefiting language my one question about the difference being the what how, and the why content is. The only thing is there's this gray area between it's not totally free content or premium where you could do just pure what and why it's not your offer. We're GONNA go really deep into the how the tactical paid a little bit. So can you sprinkle a little bit of the how because they did pay some money? So they do want a little bit of the how I guess when I'm referencing how like using our own course creators boot Camp I would think the how would be like how to record your course right so we Don't touch that I'm talking about like how to create your big promise or how to get clear on what goes into your modules or how to get clear on your bonuses. Right and so we do teach quote unquote I'm just not into like step by step tutorials where people are like Oh my God tech you know that's where you lose people and I'm not saying like you don't WanNa overdeliver I want you guys to over promise and over deliver I, think that's how you stand out. Right so many people are like under promise overdeliver what Anyone ever joined something if you under promise over promise and then put yourself online to over deliver on that over promise again, we just don't WanNa over teach because one people get lost. They will check out they just will. They'll get overwhelmed and they'll be like see I. Knew I couldn't do it and it's that belief that day hold that is keeping them stuck, and so that's why we peel back a lot of the content we want to teach because it actually does them more of a disservice to teach too much and I think a lot of people get stuck in that like I need to you know give them everything. And think they sit in that belief because they don't think what they know is enough. and. So they have this belief that stems back to worthiness like who am I to do this or why would I like? Why would anyone Wanna learn from me when they could learn from? Angie, or you know Shailene or whoever you know? So over deliver in a way of compensating for lack of kind of worthiness. But really you do people so much more of a service when you stream it down, you pair it down and you make it simple and digestible a man and a big reason they're joining to is for the accountability Yes community. That's probably didn't. Here's the thing people who are overwhelmed do not make purchases. They just don't. They don't convert into bigger offers 'cause they're like Walsh it I didn't I didn't even get through this. So what makes me think? I can actually make it through this. That's why we need to be intentional with our content and keep it lean so that we keep people out of the weeds. Empowered, and ready to take the next step. So they can get even bigger results. You see what I mean. We agitate the gap between the what and the why and how. And then we pitched the how They man, yeah. Agitate the Gab and I think also humans want small wins yes. Yes. They want micro actions. Micro actions is what builds into unstoppable momentum. Yeah. Because if you come in and we're like, okay day one, we are going to plan out your entire course people are going to be what the I need to go. Make my kid lunch like it's quarantine I, need you to take it down a notch. Sue You know like we just need to really be intentional and keep our people in mind so that we can serve them from a place of Oh my God I am doing it I'm actually taking action I'm following through and if you come into our bootcamp, you'll see like the first thing we do with people is we asked. them to make a deal with us all we ask that you show up everyday that's it. You don't need to take all his grand sweeping action to show up every day fill out you're one you're one page blueprint. That's all we ask deal they say deal people show up and that allows us to help them get results. So if you're thinking of hosting a pop-up Group for yourself, you say like I'm here to help you accomplish this over the next five days. Do we have a deal? All I ask is that you show up to the trainings that's it. Stay Open coachable and show up, and then people like, yes deal people will. Want to keep their commitments and it's in your best interest to help them make a deal so that they do show up and get the most out of this experience otherwise, they're just going to get in their heads again thinking see, I never follow through or see I knew I couldn't do this or see I knew I was you know Shit Like anything else in life it's fitness. You're not gonNA give some wine. You're not going to tell someone to do a three hour workout every single day, and that's what entrepreneurship is. So you have to I say listen let's get foundations. Let's go in order. Let's let's start with baby steps because even you and I. I, mean we get overwhelmed by things all the time we've been in business for a while and so even me I'm like I need a small today because this is too much. Absolutely, and we celebrate small wins all every day in our boot camp like we have action threads so that people can implement what they just learned like we're heavy on the action. We have our coaches in there and we're always celebrating small like figured out the name for my program. That's a win. That's a huge win. That's not even a small one. That's a huge win. You know what I mean or you know figured out my big promise or have the the purpose of my pop group like all of these micro actions they snowball they stack into big progress and so as long as you can keep your audience or your members, your popup group members on track with micro actions, you can help them see big results in a really short amount of time your home I'm loving this. Knowledge Sandwich I'm loving this. I'm the meet. Each the bread. Yeah. I'm like I'm just eating this upgrade now. It's like I literally I whenever I have a light bulb moment it sounds like what I'm eating a sandwich I'm like. I just felt it. My Body. Okay friend. So here's the real deal. I'm not a lawyer in case you thought I was in case you thought I was, but I get it I mean, Elwood's did it. So maybe Angie went to Harvard and got a law degree. No I am a college dropout. I couldn't pass law school if you paid me. My friends. So if you have legal questions in your business, I am not your girl do not come to me do not do not him your questions I will give you the worst advice but I have learned that as a business owner, I have had to outsource this part of my business and really learn from the best to make sure that I am staying safe as a business. And I know that a lot of you have been reaching out to me, Sane Angie, how do I legally protect myself in my business and that's exactly why I want to introduce you to my smarty pants friend Andrea Sager she is the host of the legal per Noor podcast, which is amazing. Go listen to it and she's the creator of the contract volt. She has helped me so much to clarify all of these legal pieces in my business that we're super confusing to me, and the best part is she makes legal fund, which is really important to me because fun is my middle name and I'm allergic to boring. So today's podcast episode is brought to you. By the contract vaults and this is your all access pass to eighty plus industry contracts and the legal. Education Your Business needs it's time to empower yourself. When it comes to the legal stuff, you're a business owner you have to understand that side of your business whether you like it or not. Okay. So it's time to stop trying to make these general contract templates work and to get the actual specific contracts that your business needs. The best part is that every single month you get access to Andrea and you get to ask her your legal questions that is flipping amazing because if you're like me I have a ton of questions when it comes to the legal side. Dive into the contract volt at the contract volts dot com use Code Angie Lee at checkout to save twenty percents off the contract volts. Yes. Thanks for hooking up my baby grandma's Andrea the contract volts dot com I'll see you inside. Okay I'm a wellness coach. I'm going to do the burn out to energize mom in seven days make the name sexy and specific desirable I. have a small email list I have maybe a few hundred people made a few hundred people may instagram. How do I get people in now and it's my first round do it for either maybe next time only get twenty or thirty bucks right. How do we give people under the free one and then let's go into the next time I do it and all yeah. So there's a bunch of ways. Okay. So one hundred percent, you can obviously use your social media platforms right? You're listening to one of the Queens of instagram over here if you know Angie, you know that she has like really. step-by-step content around how to engage your audience with your sharable save. You know all the stuff that you teach. So use your social media platforms. One hundred percent use your email list one, hundred, percent. One thing I love doing with this is I. Do you know who Andrea Chaperone as he was the creator of autoresponder? Magic Madness Elegant. So he teaches like these really compelling emails sequences essentially that just get people engaged for an offer, right? So he has this thing called a launch sequence, three emails, one story each day you leave it on a cliffhanger, but it's building to the ultimate pitch, which is your popup Now, if it's free I'm pitching that thing in every frigging email I said right I'm including it on my social media BIOS I'm talking about it on stories I'm. Constantly talking about it in my content like content marketing. So podcast blog blog, whatever you have if you are heavy on the social media making reels about it, I'm highlighting success stories. If you do have existing case studies, another option is to do this like what you and I are doing I'm on your podcast and I'm spreading the word on our boot camp. So could you hit the podcast circuit or could you guest posts or social media takeovers or? Could you help another group owner and host a free training in their group for their people and it's just a simple pitch to join your free pop group. Of course, there's paid traffic I'm a fiend for ED. Love it. It's fast and it's targeted and so you can always incorporate pay traffic. So there's lots of different ways. It's really just you're only bound by your own creativity. So us all your organic channels you possibly have if you have some. Great friends who will show you out that's awesome. Win Right US. Your email list user content marketing. You could do direct outreach to people you could do voice text through G. or F.. B.. You. Could start engaging in other groups that have the audience that you're looking to attract or, of course we run paid traffic and we fill it up that way if you're gonNA, do it for you when it really makes sense to do a Webinar for but. If you are going to do paid like all of our boot camps are paid very low entry point like less than fifty dollars. Every single time we do it because we just want people to get the most insane experience for the least amount of money. We incorporate webinars into that you could do like a pitch free Webinar, that'd be so rat who's not gonNA sign up for that right but you would end it out by saying come join me. In this free pop group will yo learn how to Blah Blah or will you'll get the process to this transformation and so you hit all the platforms you possibly can, and then when you go to make it paid especially if you don't have an audience like always thank you should run for the first time. But if you do have an audience always going to encourage you to at a price tag to this, these are like in only valuable virtual. Experiences for people and it's worth money so whether you start out at like seventeen dollars or ten dollars or our first one was thirty seven dollars, you just pack full of insanely helpful content and the beauty of that is when people pay they pay attention. So they will show up more they have skin in the game they take more action they are engaged you have skin in the game, you bring the heat with your content you want to support. Them. You help them get results, and so I'm always four making it more of a customer acquisition move rather than elite acquisition move. The only caveat to that is if you don't have an audience if you don't have an audience I'm always gonNA suggest you do it free I if you do have an audience, absolutely put a price tag on this. Make it low barrier to entry keep it under fifty dollars an rock, their worlds. Oh. Okay. There's there's Knowledge Sandwiches. Review that come she sounds like she is eating food on your bad guys. Okay Moving on okay. What if I'm knew? Jill. Only five people joined is that okay? Should I do it? Should I feel like a piece of shit? Do I get this question? So Much I. So many people are worried about low numbers and what I want people to start realizing is a small audience in the beginning is actually an advantage why that sounds crazy pants to. So many people there like what are you talking about? If I get five people that's a failure no, it's not five people raise their hand and said I'm all in for this. Yes. Here's twenty bucks I believe in you and it's not like. Okay. So are you talking for your pay? You're probably talking either one for one yet either one that's five people who said yes. A week with you and I will show up here and I will get to know you and I will get into your world. I. Think so many times people vilify small numbers in that it's like a failure. But really what we're really doing here is we're creating a repeatable sales process and that comes with repetition and so with the first one got five celebrate the hell out of those five if you can't be grateful for the first five, how you ever GonNa be grateful for fifty how you ever going to be grateful for five hundred I ever going to be grateful for five thousand it starts small and we all started small all of. US and the beauty of a smaller audience is you have an insane connection with them. You can get to know them by first name what they do, what they're interested in, and you can create this like tight knit relationship with them, send them voice and tell them how much you appreciate them raising their hand and saying that they want to be involved, and then if it is a paid pop-up group and five people joined one of our members who has come into our craters bootcamp she's a grief coach and she ran her first paid bootcamp. She called the degree for Tree or like a workshop or something because bootcamp doesn't really go with grief. So she helps grieving MOMS. She had four people join and two of them took her signature offer. So it's still really powerful and her signature offer was seven hundred dollars or something like that. So what seems like a crappy turnout want wind we got four people and no homeys you actually got two new full clients and just made an additional fourteen hundred dollars in revenue and I want to also speak to what happens if I only get five people and I do it as a paid pop. Up You didn't get five new email subscribers, we're gonNA send you Sassy messages. When you email them, you got five customers customers for Your Business, and it is so much easier to raid existing customers into your signature program or into higher ticket offers than it is to constantly go out and try and find new customers, and that's why I'm kind of opinionated. If you will around all these frigging lead magnets and like just created irresistible lead magnet and hope it converts at one point five percent. No. Fuck that let's go customer acquisition and start building a list of customers because Angie, keep it real with me how many freebies have you signed up for and then forgotten about? Almost. All of them and how much do you keep in touch with that person's world? Logic but yeah, and when you give them money, you typically keep tabs on them or at least show up and pay attention to what they're saying money talks friends. When people pay attention, it really is true and so five people join you're like. I just got five new customers and now I know that I have this process that I can use to upgrade them into a higher ticket offer and make even more money and serve the hell out of them that way I just I've just won't shut up about it because I believe in so much. Yeah. I love it. Yeah. Let's not forget social proof. I mean you got five awesome testimony videos your website yes. That's one hundred percent next time once you learn how to get five in, you can get ten and if you can get ten, you can get twenty if you can get. Twenty you could get forty and it just builds. That's why I keep saying this is repeatable. I'm sure you've seen this. I have certainly seen this in my audience is that if it doesn't work the first time, people are like okay I guess this doesn't work onto the next and it just keeps them scrambling and starting at square one all the time. Instead we create something that we just continue to rinse refine. Am repeat that's the process that's how you get traction. That's how you start building a bad ass customer less and that's how you start making way more money everybody has day one. Let's go. Let's cow. It's like you've got to be willing to do it in front of five people and was your aunt and maybe one is your grandma i. mean that's how I started online. My mom was my first customer and then one refunds mom. And then the next one was a personal training client and a friend of a friend, and then a friend's cousin's sister I mean is that a lot of people starts if you're listening to this realize that Jilin Ira Klein that you need a thousand people in your first pop up like actually think that we'd be mad overwhelming for someone just starting out like let's put it into perspective if you are a one man show and you got five hundred people into a group and you need to serve all of them to the best of your ability don't you think he'd be a bit frazzled like there's power in starting small it's actually A really smart move to start small workout. You're content figure at your systems, figure out how you serve and then start to grow it. You know there's this crazy rhetoric online that it needs to be. So instant, that's not business. That's just like our insane society that thinks everything needs to happen yesterday or that success is built overnight like that's not the case everyone you look up to every master was wants a disaster, right like everyone start at square one everyone out with low numbers everyone fell on their face. That's how they got better. That's why you look up to them because they never stopped Oh my goodness we are at Church jail. Are At church Gel everyone. Everyone stands. So I, know the wellness coach listening okay. I am the wellness coach. So okay, I'm like wait. I. Am this. Well, I'm playing the role here. Sorry, it's me. Okay. So next step I want to know is, how do I deliver in the group? What if I want to host it on zoom for seven days in a row do I have to do a facebook live you I have to have PDF's like I'm not tacky Jill how do I actually deliver the Papa? Yeah. Sweet. So we do all of ours on zoom. So Oliver, our trainings are done with zoom webinars. Now, you don't have to use zoom webinars we like it so that people can themselves right Zoom webinars so that it streamlined but you could absolutely do it with zoom meetings both allow you to stream into your facebook group. So if you do want to do it so that they can watch in two places. You can if not just record it and then post the replay for anyone who wants to catch up. Then we can only our content inside the facebook group using something like the topics you know how facebook groups have topics, and you can assign topics while you can have like day one training, and in day one is the replayed today one. And like any additional resources now with that being said, we have one PDF. That's it. It's a one page blueprint. We made it in. Canada. It's not tacky. It's not sexy. It gets the job done and no one's ever been like you know what are refund because you're one page blueprint is in cute. No, they're like this is bad ass. I have a one page blueprint that I can use to get mad value out of this experience and so don't over think it I. Think There's true power and beauty in starting messy launching, messy executing messy teaching messy. Messy so that you can figure out how to clean it up for the next round. Again, like I know I sound like a broken record, but this is a repeatable process, not like a one and done kind of thing we do over and over again, and this is like I. Know you run bass events wouldn't you say that at your live event? The energy is just like palpable you can feel it right people. Love it 'cause they're connecting their they're in your vibe there in the setting is just inexperience, right? Pop groups is the closest thing you can get to that because you can facilitate connections, people get to know each other they cheer each other on through zoom. You can do things like breakout rooms or they get to like further connect on in like little micro masterminds. We do this in our VIP level with our boot camp and it's one of people's favorite things because they get to know the other boot Campers, and so they get to create these personal connections and it is hands down one of the most engaging ways to sell your big thing whatever that ends up being. It's one of the most engaging ways you can launch promote something because it facilitates community and connection and information. It's Info -taining I mean you guys are you just throwing your wallet at your phone right now because you just want Jill to catch it. Catch it if you want to. I'm just growing my credit card at zoom screen take it all. And can I just say one quick thing that I think is like the missing piece of what we've been talking about as I can imagine people like, okay sweet I'm GonNa create a pop group that sounds bad ass right how do I use the pop up group to actually pitch into my offer so Every training that you do in the group is providing value. And it's agitating the gap like we talked about. So your conversation Lee seating your offer all throughout. So when you come into the boot Camp I'm saying stuff like inside our pop-up group accelerator and everyone's going to be like what's pop group accelerator I'm like I don't worry about it right now we'll get to that. So I'm not like doing hard pitches but I'm just like putting it out there so that they know, oh, there's something called the pop group accelerator and then We want to use a bonus training. So when you're creating your landing page for your pop group whether it's going to be free or paid, I'm GONNA speak as as it's paid right? Because I do pay pop groups on our sales page for our course graders bootcamp we have bonuses and one of those bonuses is called the superchargers sales masterclass. This is a bonus training that teaches people how to sell more their offer using pop-up groups. That then becomes the way we pitch into pop up group accelerator. Now, spoiler alert for anyone who wants to come into the game but one of the best ways that you could sell your big thing is to create a bonus training and that becomes a Webinar that you can use to sell into your main. Now, why do we do this as a bonus training because they're there to learn the next step and so we have things like money. Mindset masterclass bonus, and we have the superchargers, sales masterclass bonus but all of them are intentionally leading someone towards main thing Oh, baby that was part one with Jill partout is coming up but real quick if you're listening to this episode and you're like Ange I'm still confused on my niche and who I'm speaking do and I want to launch these courses and programs of products and masterminded memberships and all these really cool things but I really. Don't know who I'm speaking to or kind of thing. I do. But I'm super multi passionate. So I'm not sure it's niche enough. Well, you know I am the Niche Wiz. So a dive inside of my niche bootcamp at Angie Lee Dot com slash niche. It is on sale right now it is a steel right now I promise you. It is going to bring you insane confidence and clarity Angie lead DOT com slash niche I'll see you inside.

I cannot wait to hear how much you love these two products views my name. NGO At checkout to save you Moolah let me know how you I love it. And let's dive into this episode Newark. INSTAGRAM'S I've got some questions for you. My first one is. When did you see an uptick in your story views? ooh This is a good juicy question. Obviously the unsexy answer is consistency. That I know you ladies. You don't want to hear but of course anytime you stick with senior way to build that following and build that trust invalid audience than women are tagging each other in it but honestly when I really started to see an increase in my viewership four facebook live and I d stories and a lot of these video. Platforms was win. I became more of myself and I became unfiltered and I started to use language that I wanted to use and I started the show. My weird side. My goofy side is showed more of my personal life and I started to really be me and really step into that authentic self. A lot of women are afraid to show that person on stories stories or they're afraid to show that person in the written copy they don't realize is when you add that level of humanization. That's when people really start to fall in love with you and they want to watch your stories and then they tell their friends to watch your story stories so my advice would be to be your unfiltered self yes show professionalism. SPN expert guess be credible but really show you an adds to it. That's interesting right. I put a lot of passion into my stories. I put effort into them so my other piece of advice would be to put creative effort into music at visuals. Add Gist. Add the engagement features. Take a moment moment to actually look at the story and put them producer goggles on and say how could I make this story. Ten percent more interesting. Could I add music out of funny. Visual could add a funny jif could add some -taining could I add a level of education to the text if you're not educating people entertaining them or some sort of action. Those are the three es of content. You guys entertaining taking action and education if you're not infusing one of those threes if not all of them into your content. It's going to be difficult for people to keep watching you. If you're confusing one or all of those threes into your content. We cannot expect people to follow you or to continue following you so making sure that you're educating them. You're evoking some sort of action you're asking them to do something and you're giving them some education so when you are showing let's say you're Kale Salad. Don't just pose Hashtag. Kale Salad adds to that. Is there a funny Jif. You can add as a funny song you can add. Is there a creative visual. You can adding color to it. Obviously pops of color help and then giving them a few tips. Why is this Kale sale at healthy? Is that the protein. Is that the carbs the vitamins. What's what's in this Kale Salad that makes it beneficial so always going back to? How could I be a source of education for people on this platform? And how can I make them laugh if I can. I think that's just so so important right and I call this statement. It's where we infuse education with entertainment so again. My story views went up when I started to put more love and passion into them and not be so lazy with them. I think a lot of times creators are lazy in it and they expect people to follow or keep following when it is something that you should record and then take a moment to assess and to really create and produce before you post it. So is that as my answer and and then again of course always being consistent ladies if you're not consistent on stories it's going to be difficult for people to keep up with you. I bought that and that kind of flows into my next question which is how did you find your voice You find your voice by first being really awkward you know a lot of women want to be these great writers. They want to own who they are mine and they expect that it's going to be sexy imperfect in the beginning but it's not you find your voice by first being awkward and by not having Fina Voice and by not knowing what your voice is you become a great writer by writing and really shitty pieces of content and then over time you become a good writer you become really good on video when you mess up camera. Crashes and shuts down and no one's watching you and I've had the most embarrassing moment on video and then you become good on video. Anything great first comes with sucking a little bit and I talk a lot about this in my post about sucking before you're using and that's how I found my voice. I felt my voice by writing every single day. I have this commitment to myself that I write every single day no matter if it's the I g post if it's an email if it's just in my no pat passionate thought I have I write and I create every single day because I'm a creative human and I want to create in the motion of creating then right and creating reading this habit for myself of being creative and I'm staying in motion right. Something in motion stays in motion. It's like exercise so if I'm writing every day I become a good writer if I'm speaking every day into a microphone. Microphone or the camera on my phone. I become good at communicating. A huge part of your job as an creator is becoming a good communicator. Right ladies so if you're listening to this and you feel like I dunno depose. I don't know what to say. What are we seeing stories? This is awkward. This is weird. How do I find my voice? How do I know what to say to my customer? What's her voice match? It this so confusing you have to start somewhere you have to start putting things things out there and you find your voice taking action you find it over time right. I know what my voices now because I've been blogging for ten years I've been creating content for ten years so of course I know my voice and of course I know the voice of customer but in the beginning I didn't I wrote really awkward. Shit I send emails out that I probably shouldn't have sent. I posted things that are probably shouldn't have even said and it was just awkward. But I think this really comes down to you. Become great at something when you're willing to I suck at it when you're willing to create content that maybe doesn't Landon. It doesn't get a lot of engagement at first. That's really the reality of it so that would be my best advice. You're trying to find your voice you don't find your voice or voice finds you and finds you when you're willing to practice right. Yeah absolutely now. Is there a reason why you host so many stories of the day. I will say every time. I go want instagram. Angie Angie Lee Show I love it I little bubble. That's right there is they're doing off. Ah well sure things right one. You just heard what Sasha's said and that's the epitome of Omnipresence on the presence is when I'm in your head of the time right and as a creator that's genius and it's smart and it's something that we really need to keep in mind staying top of mind for your viewer staying top of mind for your ideal customer if you are relevant and your omnipresent you you win. Because you're the person who's put in the most consistent content so obviously that's more for the Algorithm and Omni presence and relevance the UNFILTERED. Answer that I want to give you is I love creating and I love sharing sharing in my nature. I love sharing things. That's why love being an affiliate market. That's why I love creating things I just like sharing my day. And so there is no rhyme or reason Zimmer Algorithm hack behind this guys I just love sharing and they say to not share one hundred thousand million stories a day but I do because I love sharing and it works for me and my community has learned that. That's it's what I do. Is I over. Shared a sense does work for everyone. No I mean my brother tells me I pose to many. Id Stories a day. I don't post enough of them but again I just I I love sharing. It feels good for me and I always go back to what feels the most authentic in good for me as a crater and I've seen from my audience that they love it and they like it and they want to see more especially the behind the scenes stuff so I'll continue to to create content if you're someone who doesn't love to create as much and you're listening to this then you don't have to post five high quality ones a day. This could be a quote. This could be a story. This could be what you're eating. This could be your wellness if your business tiff. Your photography tip whatever it is you do but stay relevant. Make sure your Posey at least one thing six days a week and you can always hire out an assistant to to help you with your stories of. That's difficult difficult for you. But maybe this is you taking five minutes in your car on your lunch break or outside and giving people the thirty second tip of the day around your niche. This doesn't have to be that time intensive everyone's everyone's afraid of I g stories because they're afraid that they have to be on it all day long. You don't have to do it like I'm doing it. In order for it to be successful you can do it how you want to do it. You're busy mom cool when your child's taking a nap start a theories on. Id Stories called Naptime with Sarah and when you're paying out when your baby's sleeping and and you're giving away some valuable content make it work for you. Make it work for for your schedule. If you have ten minutes in a day you can crank out five to six super valuable pieces of content super valuable stories in ten minutes. So if you've got ten minutes ladies which we all do you then crank it out and do it. And don't be afraid to multitask. Don't be afraid to insist story on your lunch break. Don't be afraid to instant story while you're cooking in the kitchen or while your kids in the background hanging out show your real life right. Everybody thinks you have to be in front of the screen or have your ring light out. And that's just not the reality a Lotta time. I do it when I'm out on walks because that's when I have free time and that's when I feel the most most inspired so great when you feel the most inspired great when you have ten to twenty minutes a day making educational make it somewhat entertaining and make sure it's applicable to your viewer and it's helpful for her and I think that's so powerful when I started implementing that I started to see an uptick in Miami on my instagram. Wow great I only put out content. One I'm inspired inspired and then something you taught me so sometimes I feel like I am speaking for too long one subject although my content is valuable valuable so I don't want to take the content out hike. How can I make it more digestible? The content in long yes. I love this making go to. Your viewer is so important. This is really juicy. You guys write this down one making sure that if you guys are doing face to camera in this story is what you should be doing a lot. It's better for conversions conversions. If you're doing let's say your top five tips to burning fat at home your health and wellness coach teaching other moms how to burn fat from home. Okay doing a little story during your lunch break. You want to make sure or that. You're putting text over the story so they're not just seeing a bobbling head talking. People need to see visuals as they're listening so making sure that every single story has text of what talking about quoting yourself. This is really powerful. You'll notice I do this on stories intentionally so I can keep the viewer engaged the entire time. It's almost like putting subtitles on my stories right so this is really really important. Number two is to make sure that you are adding some sort of visuals emojis little icons funny quotes hashtags keeping the story very engaging was literally not just your face one of the biggest mistakes women just doing eight stories in a row and it's just her face and she's beautiful she's great and all but I just WanNa stay at your face. I want to be entertained. Every single fifteen seconds seconds. I know it sounds crazy. But that's the human nature of humans on how we consume things so keeping people engaged the entire time with visuals. The next thing to keep in mind is to take out any fluffy words. We're filler language. This comes with time and I don't want you to sound like a news reporter but taking out a lot of the lakes and the sows and if there's something you can say in fifteen seconds and is taking you thirty seconds summit up get to the point. We all have that annoying neighbor. Sharon who is telling you this story. That is taking her fifteen minutes and she could have literally told you the exact same story in two minutes and summit up. Get to the point you guys if you can tell a story or give your tips in a more condensed for do so really learn how to condense what you're you're saying and become word ticket and again that comes with time and that comes with practice but there are ties. Were record something that I'm like. Dang it I could've told her that exact same tip in one fifteen seconds story instead of in twenty I five seconds. So what I'll do is retake it really quick and watch the timer on the edgy story. And make sure that I am closing out my sentence right before it hit so looking at the timer. Making sure that you're finishing each tip. Ideally in one story and again this comes with time and practice but we all know that neighbor Sharon who is not getting to the point so it was summit up. Get to the point. You guys keep your stories as impactful and short and quick and to the point as possible because people are creeping on a lot of people all day if you could get to the point foster in a more entertaining and quick way than you went with the viewer. Yeah so one of the reasons why I love following. You is your sense of anticipation anticipating the future of the market. Great and I really appreciate that so my question is where do use content creation hiding and the next three to five years. This is juice. This is what I think is going to happen. And this is something that I really believe in shared a little bit of this with you ladies but what is going to happen is there's going to be a pendulum swing and this happens with fashion. This happens with a lot of different born industries where less filtered and less perfect and less curated is going to be the thing. What's happening right now? Were in this time of all of these APPs of extremely really over filtered extremely curated these perfect feeds where her orange shoes match orange hat and the other photo and this quote matches this. And it's just oh my God. It's like a magazine. It's just listen for girls who love visuals get it. It's cute and all that I think there is also this level of. Let's just be human and let's just be real. Let's post in the moment and let's post when they're passionate and that's why I've run my business and again. It's not the one way to do it but I think what is going to happen is real is going to be in and people want to see you yes being professional and looking good but women also want it just the other women with no makeup on they want to see them with messy bond. They want to see your acne. They WanNA see your imperfections. They WanNa see you with your crazy kids in the background. They want to see real life and that is what is going to convert convert. Real is going to win. In the next few years social media you'll see less filters you'll see less edited you'll see less perfection you'll see less curation. That is one hundred percent. What's going to happen because everything's ratings a pendulum right? There's always seasons for anything in life and if you follow any of these big celebrities that are doing it right and getting a lot of engagement on instagram. It's the one we're really just showing them on instagram. Being real like will Smith is just him and his house him being real and that in itself is what people love more so than his perfect image when he's in movies so again knowing that you guys don't have to be perfect some of my post with the highest engagement agent. Our iphone picks where I was literally just while using my iphone and it wasn't with a photographer pete hundreds and hundreds of dollars but the copy was really good and it was very connected and it came from a really passionate cashing place and I was really present with the post and I put a lot of effort into it. So it's going to be about quality over quantity and it's going to be about being real so this is the reminder under for you now you start infusing that more into your content maybe even a fifty fifty split of yes showing those Q.. Professional photos so you can show that you are professional and you have this brand. But also don't be afraid to you sprinkle in the unfiltered especially in your stories show you being real. Show your real life right. I show myself in my robe. I'm not always dressed up because I wanNA show that I'm real and I also just. I'm too tired to Copa close on someone just because what it is right. Yeah and people fall in love with that the people fall in love with authenticity. How do you know when you're not authentic anxiety and this supplies to so much more than just social media or your personal brand or entrepreneurship this relationships? When it's not authentic right you fill leading Zaidi you feel that pit in your stomach comic that you just can't put into words be no something is off and you know something is wrong that missile lyman is in authenticity? When you're in alignment whether that's in your business so that's in your relationship and so you'll know because your mom and your ease and it just flows and it just feels right and they called us the flow state? It's almost as if time doesn't exist rights when you're in love with the right person time doesn't exist exists when you're doing what you're meant to do in this world time doesn't exist. I'm doing what I love right now. I don't even know where I am or what's going on right. This is what I love to do. It feels like it's just coming out of me and it's just almost like these downloads and is the same thing with a relationship relationships where I couldn't tell you what was wrong but something just fell off and that meant that I wasn't being truly authentic wasn't being myself in that relationship and that wasn't really need. Hey this is important for you to keep in mind with whatever it is. You're doing if it's the niche that you're coaching on. If it's the job that you're out of its the guy you're with if it feels wrong and you feel anxious nine ov ten. It's because it's not authentic and it's not really what you should be doing and it's not who you should be with. I think it's interesting and I think one of the many reasons why I really respect you and love you is your relentless the pursuit of authenticity. In your so unapologetic about it. which is just so beautiful? And I think that you've been as someone who just started an instagram underground business. Right when I look at my stories than I do the playback if it feels off. I know it's because I am. I'm in my head and I think it sounds like you do such the job and you've really place a lot of value on that authentic space and you hold that space for yourself and you shy away from anything that gives you that insight. He obviously your viewers appeal and they just resonate rate. He's powerful authenticity is power and it's really all we have. If I don't get to be paid to be who I really am than I. I don't WanNa do this because then I'm acting. I didn't find him to be an actress. I didn't sign up to be an actress. I signed up to share my life. And there's a huge difference right huge difference and I just I didn't I and sometimes I have to catch myself and is authentic is that authentic is that real is that he was real real. This is with business decisions to so many things on my plate right now and I'm constantly doing that. Gut Check of is this authentic take. Is this really what I WANNA do. Is this alignment. And if it's not I don't do it and I vote pursue it. It's not worth the money. It's not worth exhaustion. It's not worth the time. It's not worth the EGO. It's not any with that and so ask yourself. Are you being actress on Instagram. or You being yourself when you ladies are yourself. You're good to be free and all we really want is to be fucking free right and so when you're free. The people feel lightness. They feel when you are alive and you yourself and your free you can feel it right now in my voice. It's coming from a genuine place because I feel free and I think that's what people are attracted to that when they follow follow women like me or other micro influencers are leaders or whatever they feel like that girl is free and she's being herself and all we wanted the end of the day all just want to be ourselves we all just I wanna be free and God damn it if you could to be paid to yourself. That's the greatest gift on this earth. I think and that's why I try not to complain about what I do or my job as much as it's exhausting. It's very energy rich. I get to be paid to be authentic and be myself and there's nothing more than an. I hope to inspire women do that because man. That's the dream right. Yeah and I'd love how you said you're not getting paid to be an actress. No you're getting paid to be yourself and comedy. People put on a facade. Some people put on a facade and they don't even know they're putting on a facade because they have not that space of authenticity in you allow space for people to just be themselves and finally have a relationship build a relationship. Yeah actually and I love it friend. Did you hear the news. Did you know that my annual conference pays is to be brave is heading to Chicago yes. We are heading back to my hometown. We're going to the midwest friend were doing this. We are doing the damn thing so just now your ticket head to pays to be brave dot com. Don't fart around on this baby grandma okay.

Welcome to the show lean show Selena's a New York Times bestselling author celebrity fitness trainer in obsessed with helping you lick your tree life in yellow. I don't know if he listened to build your tribe. But there's no reason why you shouldn't. It's the podcast he needed. Listen to you. If you're interested in trying to find a way to live a bigger fuller life, how to create additional income passive income. Now, if you are a regular listener, you've probably heard the episode that Britain. I did where we talked about. How it is. We go about selecting speakers for our events. Okay. So as we're going through this process this year, I reach out to all of, you know, my top friends and people. Associates people in the industry who's opinion. I really trust and one name kept coming up. It was Angie Lee. And like the third or fourth time I heard her name, by the way where it was asking for him. Like, I need a really powerful strong authentic, but like down to earth and fun, and like, you know, super relatable female, I wanna female who can teach the mindset around marketing like, you know, helping people get over that block that so many women I find have when it comes to earning additional income. And so anyways angios named kept coming up over and over again. And a couple of people were like, you know, what you love her. She's like a little mini version of you have to tell you. I take that as a compliment because I did not have my stuff together. Like this young lady does at her age. I think she was like twenty nine years old. You would never guess it because she's done so much already. She's a seven figure earner she's a sought after business coach. Coach she is a top-ranking podcast her her show is called the Angie leash show. And really what she likes to do is help women understand what it takes to create a breakthrough a breakthrough in their life a breakthrough in their business. She's the co founder of a c b d company called soul. She's a public speaker. She puts on her own event called it pays to be brave, and she's just one of those people who's very very authentic just relatable, and she's a mid western girl with, you know, big blue eyes, and very sweet, very kind and just honest and authentic and doesn't put on airs just a really cool check. And I know you guys are gonna love her. So anyways engineer getting to know each other. We're spending a lot of time talking and texting and getting together at networking events. And I love her approach to health and wellness to were like super lying there. And so I, you know, learn a little bit more about her CBD company and start taking some of her CBD oils and. Then I learned that sometime last summer she had her breast implants removed. And I was like, okay. This is a story that many of you have been asking about Andy been asking about CBD oil. So let's get her on the show and talk about both of those things. Angie, lee. It's about time. You're here. I'm excited. I'm so excited to be here. I'm been looking forward to this day for a couple of weeks actually, more than that. Because we it scheduled. No way to reschedule it which was totally cool with me. And I've had kind of crazy busy couple of weeks. And I sent you a text yesterday the day before so we're gonna play and we're going to go for a bike ride. So we still have to do that. Yes. I'm always down for play. Yeah. So if you aren't a subscriber to the Angelique show, you need to her podcast, if you like my podcast, you will love her podcast, and she's just a little dynamo. She's incredibly, well, you guys all ready heard the intro of Angie. So I think we should probably just like jump into the content with do it. People people have been asking for this this particular content, both and I thought we can kill two birds with one stone. So we're gonna talk today a little bit about CBD, and we're gonna talk about breast implant illness. Let's start with breast implant illness. So talk to us about when did you get breast augmentation? Yeah. I was nineteen years old when I had three thirty sailing implants implanted into my body. I was competing in bikini shows and my mentality at the time was this is what will help me to win. This is what will help me to feel pretty and sexy and to attract men, and I was nineteen. This is exactly ten years ago. I'm twenty nine now. And we're you flat chested all your life. Did you have boobs and then lose them? I was a gymnast for twenty years. So I have a very typical gymnasts body where they have a very muscular physique, but no boobs at all. Okay. Right. And so now actually do those kind of I mean, maybe then I was exaggerating. Who knows what I was thinking ten years ago? Right. I I saw a girl in a Victorian era magazine. I thought mom, I, you know, I wanna look like her my mom said wait year, come back to me if you still want to do this. We can consider it. And that's when I started to get into holistic health, but not as much as I am now. And I'm a freak about everything from my water to everything I eat and EMF's, and I'm psycho bio Haggar now. But then I really wasn't. And so I just thought you know, what if this makes me look better? I'm just going to do it. I don't care about any of implications. I'm jumping all in with a doctor. I showed him a picture of Victoria, Seger model. And he said, okay, is this what you wanna look like I said, I wanna be her, you know, and women listening you've been in the situation where you think if you handed pitcher, it's like the girls of the hairstylist wanna look like her, right? It's just a hair-color, right? Not miracle workers over here. You're like pitcher of a supermodel, but I got them in the end it wasn't until a few years. Then, you know, initially. They were great. I liked them. Of course. I thought they were fun or whatever, I don't know if it was kind of a tomboy. So when I really look back at it. I don't really know how much I actually appreciated them. Or really thought that they were that fantastic. It didn't really change my relationship with men. I mean at the end of the day, they didn't really care. So I think I went into it. The lot more expectations of how much it would change in my life, and my confidence, and I know you teach on confidence. So ladies if you're doing it just for the fact that you think is going to change. Your life. Newsflash it won't right? And that's where it gets tricky with these things, right? If it really helps you to show up powerfully than yes. But if not that I think it's a waste of time and money so about eight years end. So this is about two years ago. I started noticing some weird ailments. Now, I'd have never made the correlation because I didn't know on all we'll just these obviously, I knew were plastic bags inside my body. But I didn't really think about what they could be doing to my immune system. And I was scrolling on Facebook one day it sometimes God comes to us through Facebook and Instagram. Yes, he does. And I saw these girls posting about it. And I was like, you know, what this is silly. This is only a year ago. So this is very recent this'll whatever I I don't always that. Yeah. I got him out in July fourth fourth of July. It was the only way that was oh business. The wait list for this doctor in Newport Beach, actually, so near where we are right now. And I saw this post whatever I don't know what this is what does this girl talking about a few months later sought again. I just kept seeing it like what is this and always had a little weird health conditions and things come up, but I never need it. Remember what? Things were gas. A lot of them were as I was getting random joint pain. Okay. Which is super weird a lot of like hair and scalp conditions. My skin like if you see before and after pictures, my skin is completely different jointly lane went away. Can you describe your skin like what it was? I'm trying to remember. It was more. Honestly, just breaking out more. It was derived by it was like a rose Asia almost so pretty unpredictable. Yeah. Pretty unpredictable, and I always had pains, obviously, like up in my chest like from the weight of them. But I never realized what that was. I was just always really sore from working out. So let a pains from them, and I have seen these posts in. But again, I didn't make the correlation at all. And then I reached up to this girl one day. And he said, hey, what's going on? What is this? I'm super open minded than we do research on this. I wanna learn more just like you. I was I was really wanting to see the research in. So I jumped inside this Facebook group, it's called breast implant illness by Nicole. There are about eighty thousand women in there right now. And that's women who are being vocal about it. You have to keep in mind. And they're basically sharing their experience. Now, of course, this can be super overwhelming. So you have to go in with caution. And know, everybody's situation is different, of course. And I've always been a very healthy person. So keep in mind that I went into it very healthy with a strong immune system. Now, if someone has a compromised immune system anytime you stick a foreign object in your body, your body to attack that foreign object every single day twenty four seven doesn't know what it right? I mean think about what it does for sliver the teeny tiniest microscopic fragment of wood and your body will go get out. What do you think is going to do with a saline bag that's coated in silicone, which is filled with a lot of different chemicals in it every single day. It's almost like an alert system. I see it like knocking at the door. Right. You're uses of what's going on and jumped inside this group. I saw a lot of the before. And after his I'm like, this is insane. There's women who have had them in for thirty years and never got them replaced in. They're like death by like this is insanity. So I got out of it. Then it went back in. And so I was like, you know, what I'm going to speak to some doctors about this. And see what they already were was it reading about the symptoms. Gms that made you feel like I wonder if this is what's going on. Because to be honest from what you've described it does he allowed in like, it could be a lot of things. And also doesn't sound like debilitating knows never debilitating. But it was enough for someone who is healthy as I was is still didn't make sense some of these things the brain fog here, and there it just didn't make sense. And so I remember thinking to myself, I'm going to ask some of these doctors, I'm gonna ask naturopathic doctors because I rather hear their side of it. And I just wanted to whole holistic viewpoint of what was going on. And I went to Dr Chun in Newport. And I went in. I asked him. I said here's my situation. I'm twenty nine I want to have kids. I don't really wanna keep updating these every ten years hate hate surgery. Don't wanna go under every five ten years. I was under the impression that these were permanent. Now that it'd be Marie search. You're not supposed to keep these in your body that long zoom one of my supposed to do and what have you seen? And I wish I would have had my microphone the podcast Romy wish wishes it was legal to record it at that moment. But of course, you. Really wouldn't have done it. But why don't you have him on your show? Now. I know right. On a lot of women now are interviewing these doctors on this. But some of them make a lot of money from the other side. So they don't want to obviously be open about it. It's very controversial. And they said what have you seen what's going on? And he said, Angie, all I can tell you are two things one. I'm morally will not put implants in a woman's body anymore after what I've seen and he said number two eighty seven percent or with some weird stat eighty seven percent of the women who come back to me all of their symptoms are gone within a few months or very shortly. He said, so I can't legally tell you right now that this is what's causing it. We may never know. But only know is keeping it in you won't ever know for. I saw it as I had two options. I keep them in live my life, and that's fine. Or listen to my gun intuition and say, well, I'm rolling the dice. I might as well just take them out if I don't really care about them anymore anyway. And so it was like if option a or option you in a relationship at that time. I was I was with my ex. Okay. And so I brought it up to him. And I said. I don't think I want these anymore. I don't know what's going on. But I started to feel this sense that they weren't part of me. And almost like they were this foreign these foreign like bags like on me. And I would have this feeling of wanting to rip them off almost like, I just feel very disconnected from them. And I'm a very good intuition person. And I just my intuition was super clear of like, this is not what you need anymore. I wasn't. I'm not the same girl. As who? I was when I was nineteen. So it's not something. I would do today. I'm like is this an alignment of my brand my morals my health morals. Does this feel right? Could this be the reason for some of my health conditions? I wanna have kids it just didn't match up anymore. Was your curiosity though? Oh, he was great about it. Yeah. He was. And so he was supportive of I want to get back in ask. You don't let me forget. Whether you were talking about this decision. You are making in social media. Or was it one? You're having privately. Yeah. I said to him I showed him a lot of the research showed. A lot of the articles. I showed him this Facebook group, I was showing him this this material. And I remember when he was a great guy. He is a great guy didn't work out for other reasons. But I remember saying to him I don't want to take the risk of this not being healthy during breastfeeding. I really want to breastfeed him. I don't know yet. Right. Isn't it? I'm research about that. And I really I want to be this like Kalinic mom who's like having their kid like in a bathtub like knowing not going to have in my pain tolerance zero. But I was like what if there's a chance that there there's something that could happen. And he said, well, if if this is that important to you, which I know it is you're obsessed with the water you drink. I can't imagine you being okay. Going to bed at night, knowing there's this foreign plastic inside your body if it's important to you than a love you regardless. It doesn't matter. I don't care about your boobs. And how was he afterwards? He was actually awesome about it. He was the first guy who saw them when I ripped off the bandage, and it was sitting there in the office. I told the guy don't wanna see him yet. It was the day after surgery or two days after you go back in I didn't want to see it. I was really nervous. And he was sitting in front of me, though. I'm like, are you sure you want to be there? He's like. I don't care whatever it is. It is such an amazing, obviously. Right. So I peeled off the bandage. And he goes, oh, it's not that bad. It's not that bad girl wants the guy to say to you when you're naked in front of them. And the doctor said to me because you're young did you did you say in publicly in social media. Okay. This is where I'm going. Oh, yeah. I made a post about that. I was about to do it. And I almost did that just to keep myself accountable because I was terrified I hate surgery. I thought it's easier just to keep them in. But again, this isn't like zip. That's just going to go away. You either have to get them out at some point. You can't live with him forever. So I really felt this sense. Asian of I was up against a wall of like, I don't really have a choice. Let me just do it. Now, get them out before if kids I'm young my skin is elastic. I'm in shape like as healthy as I could be. Yes, I have some of these ailments, but let me just like get them out. Like, I was just at the point where I was done. Then after months and months is sitting on it and thinking about in stressing about it. Right. And so I went on his wait list. His weightless is astronomical right now, I've sent him so many people know from that episode by almost basically went viral the BI episode. So it up in a lot of these other influencers no talking about it's going crazy. So all these doctors weightless are insane. So I was on the weightless. List, and she called me. And she's like do you wanna come in Tuesday? It's the fourth of July. I wasn't ready. But I was like oh my God. Okay. Let's do this. I cried before I went in. But I thought about my my commitment that I publicly announced my audience. I was like I'm doing this. This is what feels right for my health. I'm going to do it. And and again, while you ladies are listening to this episode. If you have them this isn't any judgment. If someone has them obviously did have them not that long ago. But again, it's just to know that sometimes what we think we're doing is, okay and healthy, isn't and that's just the health industry. And it's something that a lot of plastic surgeons don't want you to know, the only person you're listening to is your plastic surgeon who's driving away Ferrari after the appointment. I mean, just I think it's important to take assessment of all different, you know, angles of this. And at the end of the day, listen to your gut, and your intuition, my whole take on this is I could ask a ton of MD's a ton of ND's most of them. Agreed. It's probably not safe. But at the end of the day, I had to sit there and say to myself, do I think it's safe to have this in my body. Just a gut check just a. A intuition. I'm a smart girl. Do I think it's safe to have a plastic foreign object in my body for ten years in my answer is just no. So that's how I made my decision. You know? And I think a lot of times when it comes to health and wellness, we're we're so obsessed with doing almost so much research instead of just saying does this feel right for me anymore. And so if you're listening to this, and you have that gut calling then go with it. If you don't then do more research, or you know, it it's up to you. It's your body your life. So when did it all I can tell you at the moment I woke up I remember thinking like oh my God. The books are off my chest. Really? So you felt Malini was different. So working out so much fun without boobs because like you can like do that. You can do burpee is and stuff you can bounce around. It's so great. You're like free. My mom said I was like I was obviously a little screwed up on the drugs. But my mom said I just kept saying like, I can breathe I can breathe like I'm able to breathe deeply in so long, which is so great because there's there was a weight on my chest because I'd pretty big boobs. I guess you could say three thirty see like a really big see for my frame and your tiny two can can be a lot. So. The things that changed immediately. Again, we're my skin joint pain. I haven't had joint pain since July fourth no joke. I swear my mom's life, that's insane. And then my people's you'll see like people's the white around, my I yeah. Here they are very bright. They're very bright. And so that's a huge sign of when your immune system is suppressed is we'll have more like a yellow tone to them. And a lot of the women in this group will show you there is before and after within forty eight hours of surgery, my eyes I have a before and after their white and so little stuff that again, you're like that's not a big deal. That's a huge deal. That means you're immune system was basically fighting something, and you can tell the sign of youth from someone by their eye color a lot, and there is say a lot. So it's been great. It was a great decision. I it was very easy to get them out. There was I didn't take any painkillers. I did it very holistically with CBD as one of my natural painkillers. The process was easy. It was great. I can only say great things about it. And can you tell us know, generally, speaking, what that procedure how much that cost? Yeah. Cost me six thousand dollars that was without a lift. So with the lift and this is. A Newport Beach, California, the lift would have been another four K. So that would have been about six to ten ks. What you're looking at. I chose not to get a lift because I'm going to have children. So my boobs are going to get big and Saginaw plan. Probably hopefully, and then it would have been a waste of time and money just to have them titan. Oh, I see. So maybe later. Yeah. He was like maybe most of them who get a lift and tighten the skin up are the women who already are done having kids. So to be honest with you. I don't want to rip you off another four K, you might as well, just let them get bigger and whatever happens when you're pregnant so again now there's things such as fat transplant. I don't know enough about that yet to speak on that. But I think what's going to happen. And I hope what's going to happen is there will be other alternatives. But yeah, I I love who. I am more. It's very interesting. I feel more Angie. I feel more me. And it's cool to be in those situations now where I see friends or family or loved ones, you see me now, and they're like you just look healthier. You look better, less inflammation. A lot of my inflammation went down. I was holding a lot of water weight. And they say it just it's just you like that is you like little. It's just you. And so I think at the end of the day. It's a good decision. When it makes you feel more like you. So I wanted to dress this because I know my audience. Yeah. Most of them know that I have breast implants, how long have you had them now. Well, this is like my second set. So I joined the replacement by second-set sounds like I don't know like lashes or something for me, I always had big breasts like I developed really young. Oh, you naturally have big boobs. Yeah. I remember getting teased for that. Because I developed early yet that was part of who I was and then after my first baby like they're just completely deflated empty tube socks with rocks in the bottoms. It's kind of different. I think when you if you have big boobs naturally, and then you nurse for me. Anyways. They were just like oh my gosh. What are these? I think part of it is trend to like I never got them like for my husband or anyone else. I was got them. Because everything I wore didn't look, right. I always say, I got them for fish and reasons. Yeah. Over shallow. Which ends sense. You know, so feel free to judge. But when I moved here to southern California, I literally thought so do you have to get breast implants to teach fitness classes because every single woman had them and that was just the norm. Everyone had them here. And they kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. Of course, I didn't do that. I just went and said here's what I looked like before. Can you make them close to this? Then I had them replaced at. I think I don't know maybe the eight year Mark or something I never loved having big boobs when I did have big boobs wish they were smaller and you'll have a tiny boobs. You probably would have never got them. Right. Now to now it does. But at the time like it was, Pamela Anderson, and everyone had and that was the fashion you just warlike, you know, big boobs and sundresses and just didn't like you try to like stuff abroa- with the sundress. Didn't look right now. It's like that natural look is so much more in them. So happy about that. Because girls they're not choosing that surgery anymore. In fact, I talked to a plastic surgeon who I'm hoping to have on the show soon and one of her most common request is women coming in either have them removed or to go much much smaller to be honest. I haven't thought much about completely removing them. I'm going to be honest and say if I was having a lot of symptom. Yeah. Maybe I would and the symptoms. I was having before certainly translate into breast implant illness. Yeah. Like when I hear all the Samson does with the symptoms. I was experiencing when I was having leaky gut et cetera. So. And because I have relief for them. Maybe that's one of the reasons why don't feel compelled to have them removed. But I definitely definitely would love to have them into do something where there were smaller. Maybe something more natural to do a fat transfer. But I mean, I get a lot of messages from people that are they just come for me. They're like Chow, can you? Call yourself a health and wellness expert, and you've got those bags in your chest. You should be shamed of yourself. So save your DM's and save your emails sister because it is a personal decision. And I certainly wouldn't consider myself an expert or someone to speak on this. But I believe that each of us has a different auto immune response yet. Like some oh seven auto immune response to certain foods, certain toxins, and that can also be accumulative yet. I'm just having an open mind to it and my girlfriends we all got them at the same time all about the same size. And now we're all like enough with these things like, yeah. It's just not. I don't mean to make it sound. So shall like about fashion. Yeah. But if you look at butts like there's a style of but right now that's in. And I think a lot of those women are now like ten years from now they're gonna be having their implants from their butts removed. Oh, yeah. Oh my God. Dude. It's so unnatural MP has just so you guys know most of what you're seeing on Instagram is actually not their butts. It's face tune. Yeah. Yeah. Today student dude, do that's not there. But there's not there. But yeah, I think you're coming from a great place of, you know, and you're you're open minded, your health experts. You're looking at both sides. And then you'll you'll know I think it's gotten intuition thing. Maybe do it one day who knows right and right? It was interesting because the post on Facebook, then did that was by far the most insane. I think at fifteen thousand shares like crazy the comments on it. I gotta go find it. Now, I see what the updates are. I've never seen postcode viral like that of mine, and it was insane. Ninety eight percent of it was very positive two percent of it was some creepy due to. I'm like, Steve why are you commenting this like? Like like, my boobs, leave her alone. I'm like this. What I'm talking about talking about health right now. Thanks, steve. But you have any negative feedback from women. It was one of the best things. I did for my brand. Honestly because women wrote me like I liked you. Now, I love you just like 'cause you are me, and you represent like, you didn't need it to be, you know. So it wasn't related. Billy point. Why did it? I was nervous. I wasn't gonna actually share it. All it was like, I don't know. I don't know that I was talking to some friends are like, no, I think you share this. I think you share this because you're passionate about it. I think you share 'cause it's part of who you are. And it's your journey own it. So I just owned it. And I didn't know that it would explode then. And then I got all these new funnel of women coming in from other people's accounts were then reshaping the pitcher of me, holding the bags and stuff. So it was crazy. Hey, okay. This will only take a second to true story. If you follow me in social media. You have watched this happen. So I love living in my yoga tights. Of course. I try to make it look like an outfit, but let's face. It yoga tights are. Now, not just. For people who work out right there, super comfortable. They're way more comfortable than jeans, and you can run your errands in them it cetera. So let's just say I have a lot of them. And it's kind of been my pet peeve because the price of workout where is ridiculous, and they never seem to fit me. Right. So I'm spending like one hundred ten dollars on a pair of leggings. Are you kidding me? Only to have them not fit me. Right. And I have to like cut off the bottoms, and then have them taken in. It's ridiculous. So I've been seeing these ads for fab Lennox. So I just put it out there. I went on my Instagram stories, and I'm like well have you guys used or bought fab Lennox before in? What do you think? And the response was overwhelming like love them, love them. Love them. You're going to die. They're so great. I was pretty impressed. So I immediately went on an okay, I'm not going to lie. I ordered ten pairs. And I figured if I don't love them because they've got this great return policy. I can return all of them. But I wanted to try all the different styles. I wanted to try the high waisted pairs I wanted to try the ones that will. Like, they had a shorter in seem I want to try the ones with the little pocket on the guy. I wanted to I'm all and because of their killer return policy. I knew I had nothing to lose amazing. You guys I'm tripping two days later, I went through all of my other leggings, and I threw out or donated all the other pairs that were driving me crazy. But I've donated all of them you definitely want to try fabrics. Here's the deal you because you are a member of the audience get up to fifty percent off the regular price when you become a VIP. You definitely want to do that eventually. But if you just want to check them out you can check out as a guest. Now, here's how it works go to their website. I really appreciate fab for becoming one of our sponsors as you know. I'm not gonna ever mentioned anything to you that I don't personally use or love for that matter. So you go to the website Feb, Lennox dot com slash lean take a quick sixty second pop quiz, and that's important because it's going to help you narrow down your choices. Then here's the deal. You get two pairs of leggings are you sitting down for this for twenty four dollars? And when you get them you're going to be blown away. I mean, the quality is insane. I would dare say better than some of the types I've paid over one hundred dollars for I have two favorites. So far, it's the Solaar and the ones I'm not sure what they're called. But they have a little pocket on the side on the hip. Holy cow. I love those because when I'm working out. I don't have to carry my phone around. I just stick it in a little bucket. But out of all the pairs of ordered. I liked every single one of them. I didn't even return one pair, and it got a couple of their tanks to and you can't remember the names of them right now. But I'll show you on social media anyways. This won't be the last time you hear about fab Lennox go. Get yourself two pairs for twenty four dollars by going to fab Lennox dot com. Forward slash lean. All right now back to the show. So you've talked to women who've gone through the surgery, you have a few good girlfriends now who've done it do any of them share that they in their honest, you know, vulnerable moments that there are times when they feel less attractive less feminine if they've had them. And then now, they don't, you know, it's funny. No, I'm sure there are some in the Facebook group. I mean, there's there's hundreds of there what eighty thousand in there or something right now. But every girl that I know who's done it, so far we've all are extremely happy with it. I feel more sexy. I feel more like me. I feel more like I just I love it. Like, I feel even her. Yeah. So I think it's interesting, and I I have friends my friend, Sarah who did it who was very very sick horrible autoimmune condition. I mean, it was getting really really bad and so to say many of the symptoms here mimic lime disease. They do mimic line, which is interesting. So she's doing fantastic now she's published a lot of things about it that went pretty viral. So it's great. There's nothing. I I don't know. I mean to see her look youthful into see her actually have. You know, a functioning body embrace skin. And she just looks better and healthier. You could tell her system is healthier. So I would say majority of them feel better again. I'm sure maybe there's some women at first the first week or two was weird because I was like what is going on. And they're like they were bruised and they weren't as good looking. But now I'm used to it. And it's fine. And I don't see never have a moment where you're like. Oh, gosh. This dress. I sure wish. No, I wish maybe they were like a tad bit like perkier, I guess, but at the same time, I'm like, oh, whatever I don't know. Okay. No. I don't think about isn't it? I don't think he's fantastic. I left that little bed. I woke up I looked at the nurse. And I said I'm like, I'm free. And I just started crying. I'm so proud of you, you just kinda know if your here's my and my big thing, I'm afraid of me anesthesia hate it. It's one of my biggest fear. So when he was like, do you want to keep updating these? I was like no like. Updating them every like, then when I'm forty then when I'm fifty then when I'm sixty I don't know. So we'll see how your pain management you learned to CBD, and I did so many questions here on the show about CBD oil. I think we need to start at the beginning to help people understand the difference between CBD and THC. Yeah. Yeah. So the cannabis plant has two parts to it has a feminine in a male part. They call it the female in the male part of the plant and THC is the part that gets you high. This is the whole loosening genyk aspect of marijuana. This is where people will tell you. They got stolen. They got. Hi, this is what you see is. And then this beautiful cannabis plant that is super healing. There's another aspect to it, which is the CBD. So if you extract just purely the CBD, you're getting all of them additional benefits of cannabis without getting high, which is amazing, especially for you, people listening who know that cannabis has been something that's helped people with disease, Alzheimer's cancer, all these things, but they don't want to be high. So CBD Kenema. Dial is the compound that's found in the cannabis plant with all the benefits without actually having the psychoactive properties. Which is amazing. You know, you've taken it and shaking soul where it's one of the my dealer. And that's what's so beautiful about it. And I think that we live in a time where the irony is there's a bar on every corner. And that's not seen as harmful and toxic. Right. Even though alcohol is so toxic for your body and your liver something that is a plant. It's natural. There's virtually zero side effects is now still taboo to talk about or for. Sure. I guess that's what I don't understand is. So it's just a misunderstanding. What was it could lead to misunderstanding? 'cause it's from the plant. Ours is all hemp derive, which is great, and we have zero THC so some will have a little bit in there. That's called full spectrum are is pure Iceland. Which means that we guarantee on a drug test one hundred percent, we guarantee not like, oh, we kind of guarantee we guarantee you'll pass any drug test the heart like the most difficult test. And we did that because we wanted to make a pure isolate where if you're a teacher, you're a nurse. You're a doctor any profession where your drug tested a lot at athlete. My brother's a professional athlete. He cannot risk obviously, not passing. We wanted to make sure we had a pure isolates. I was introduced to it a few years ago I had anxiety. And I was like I was opened. Taking anything except for pharmaceuticals at this point, you guys probably get him a hippie who didn't want to take more calls, and my brother was a professional athlete who is in a lot of pain and was looking for alternatives instead of ibuprofen Advil and just pump and Tylenol day brother is e co-partner. Yeah. Soul CBD. Yeah. And a professional boxer. Yeah. He's a professional boxers names, Mike Lee. And so he came to me one day and Mike said you love see I'm of CBD, we should share this with our audiences. We should get into this. This is incredible business to get into. It's helped us so much. What do you think and I been wanting to come out with a physical product? And this is it let's do this. And how do you source it? Our farm is in Kentucky. And so we white label with an amazing producer out there who produces for some of the top CBD line. So we wanted to make sure it was American soil one hundred percent organic zero THC the highest quality. We were really picky. So we traveled around for a while to find the producer we wanted. And now here we are CBD now is suddenly that thing. That everyone's an expert on everyone's selling CBD oil, but not all CBD oils are the same. So what should they be looking for make sure that it is a pure isolate? If that's what you're looking for. And you are someone who is in a career where you can't risk not passing a drug test. I think that's huge. And how will they know that is it labeled as she'll be called a pure isolate? I think it's also really important to know that you're getting CBD from an American United States farm a lot of these companies with they're doing now in order to fill the mass production is they're outsourcing to China. They're outsourcing these other places to get the plant and anytime, you're crossing borders like that it just the quality of the CD's just not as high, and I were really passionate that we will always be an American soil companies. I think that's huge making sure that it's one hundred percents organic. I think is huge as wome. Yeah. Yeah. I think checking out the source checking out the reviews, making sure it's not sketchy if it's from Amazon, honestly, that's it stinks. I wish business side. I wish I could sell it on Amazon. But a lot of them are. Sending that it's full CBD. But really, it's just MCAT oil water, and maybe a little bit of CBD's thrown lines you and they're selling to for twelve bucks CD's, a high quality supplement. And I think that it should be something that isn't cheap. Is there a regulating body that oversees or governs quality or is it self regulating itself? Regulated. Yeah. And so that's where again, there's a lot of these farm bills that are being passed. A lot of things are changing right now, which is great in favor of CBD. But as you guys can probably assume at this point, the reason why there is so much controversy with CBD in the pharmaceutical industry as well. The doctors don't want, you know, the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want that coming out that this can help you with anxiety with your pain management because you have a prescription to something they want you to be on that. So so it has these Anthony. Green ogre. They're really concerned about our wellbeing. It has these anti inflammatory properties. What is it about CBD oil that helps with pain management? Yeah. It's interesting. It's what's interesting about CBD, essentially stimulates different aspects of your brain. And then you're when we were born we were born with an Endo cannabinoid system, which is really cool. Wow. I'd had that I know Endo cannabinoid system if you're taking science class, a receptor, it's like a lock in a key any mammal has this. Our bodies were actually made to take in cannabis which is crazy because then that brings up the whole topic of his safe when you're pregnant, I give it to my baby. Again, I'm not legally allowed to say that right now. But at the same time, I'm like, that's so beautiful and incredible that God made our bodies with the this Endo cannabinoid system that's ready to take in this plant. So it's like our central nervous system is almost prepared for it. Which is really great. So most people are taking it for anxiety, sleep and pain issues. How do you dose appropriately? Is there a as the million dollar question? Also when people are looking for a quality canvas product, obviously you want to check the link below this episode, and you can check out soul CBD. That's what Brett and I and Rocco run her dog us. How would somebody know number one what milligrams to look for and how to dose? Absolutely. This is the tricky questions since everybody's system is going to respond differently to CBD. So I would always start with the lowest dosage, the great thing is that your body would will flush it out, this there isn't any harmful side effects. There's no psychoactive side effects. There is nothing harmful as far as your liver or any of your organs. So knowing that if you take way too much the worst thing that could possibly happen. Is you get sleepy a little bit? But there really isn't any hardcore adverse reactions I would start with the smallest amount on the the the tincture that you're using. So for example, for ours are one hundred fifty milligrams. I'll take like one full dropper a day to full droppers. But that's me. Right. So you have to take them at a particular time of day. So I take one in the morning if I'm feeling really anxious, and then I'll take one at night, and then we just came out with sleep capsules while do the sleep capsules at night, which is awesome. Why capsule instead of a dropper simulates into the body faster? So before people go to sleep they want to do that. And then it also has the melatonin too. Yeah. I think it's anywhere. It's tricky. Right. My brother, who's an athlete who is in pain. He can take up to three hundred milligrams a day. He'll be completely fine. He's okay. And it's not a big deal. I just came back from our farm in Kentucky the other day. I probably took three hundred milligrams. We were testing already flavors, and we were just having fun at the lab, and but again have any side effects. Julia sleepy. I mean, I was just relax. You can't say that I've ever felt sleepy. I don't I don't. Don't know if it's maybe placebo effect that somebody might think that they feel sleepy. I mean think they will. But again, that's where people get confused like can I take this out work? I'm like, yeah. You funny about it. They're like -cially who like whispering in the corner. To what are your thoughts on DVD? I'm like, it's it's no different than tumor agreeing to get high from like, really, it's interesting. How people associated with the THC? Why is it you? Or would you consider branching off into THC because I really I mean for me, personally, I really think that that the problem we have in this country with suicide related to heroin deaths, which for so many of them you can trace them back to a kid who was put on opiates who are put on painkillers from a broken arm or surgery, they had in highschool and the next thing, you know, they're addicted they can't get them anymore, and they they get addicted to heroin and the rate of suicides and accidental overdoses in this country that we can trace back to painkillers mean to me. It's like how are we not looking at alternatives? Yeah. And and again, even when I got into this industry. I'm from Chicago. I'm from the mid west. I cannabis and marijuana seen as something that's super taboo to talk about getting high. Oh my gosh. I've always been a very clean person. So for me. Of course, initially. I was like what is this? I don't know. I never smoked weed real swampy, maybe a few times in my life. So I was a little bit nervous. You inhale? Yeah. I mean, I just you know, I again, I can see where people are confused about it. But there's something so beautiful about seeing someone who's in pain and seeing someone especially love. I mean, I've seen my brother in a lot of paint as an athlete and to know that some of these blends that are a fifty fifty which means fifty percent of the pen is CBD fifty percents Zedon and for them to take something like that. And again, they're not getting stoned or highs only out of it. There's completely fine. It's just their pain has alleviated a little bit to see that. Like, it gives me emotional because I think seeing someone you love and pain is the worst. Right. And if I could get any everybody in this world out of pain. I would. Yeah. You can't function when you're paying you can't run your business. You can't be a great brother husband. You can't do anything. If you're in pain when news impeccably Littler as insane. What pain can do to someone? I am definitely not against a little bit of THC. If you're someone listening who's in pain or you have any brain disorders or seizures people use it a lot for seizures now children. And that's where CBD really got popular as were using it for children with seizures. I just think. Listen, if you're doing it to hang out in your basement, it gets stone. That's different podcasts up using it for pain management, and knowing that it can be very healing plant is really powerful. And I definitely think people should be more open minded to exploring it. Well, when I tore my hamstring. I had a hamstring of Olshan last June, and it was right ably painful, all three hamstring muscles tore off the bone nut a torn muscle ripped away from the rollerblading or something roller skating. Good. I knew. Good. I knew I knew what I was creeping on her cool. What? What? Was I I thought it was a joke. Oh, she knows when I'm in a lot of pain. I can't stop laughing like oh someone's on painkillers. I'm like, no not yet. But that's just my reaction is I usually start laughing. But and of course, you know, I had to put it all on social media time. I remember why not what happened, but the pain was excruciating. And I couldn't sleep, and I was had done all this research and all this work to him. I got in the last thing I wanted to do was take a painkiller and plus they just don't react. Well, with me they made me, hyper and itchy and keep me up. And they, you know, the alleviate the pain, but it just felt like it wasn't worth it. So I reached mentioned this in my social media in so many people were like, listen, don't be frayed. You've gotta try some THC which I'm like where does that mean? I was just picturing myself smoking weed and dog style. Exactly. So, you know, I called a place locally and they're an a Hello. Yes. I would like some something that includes marijuana. I knew nothing I didn't know the THC or CBD and dosing or anything. I was just just desperate try something. But yeah, a fifty fifty blend did not feel high A just took the edge off. I had to figure out the right dosage. So that I you know, it didn't affect my sleep. But it was just enough to get me through those first, you know, that first week really were it wasn't painful to to sleep or move. And when a lifesaver because I'm telling you, I just I think there's so many people who are completely addicted to painkillers and we've gotta look into alternatives. So my question is would you consider looking into manufacturing or expanding the sole line to include THC and what what's that face? He looked like hesitant or nervous or what? Oh, I would love to. But as a business now, we're stepping in. To a whole different space with galaxies of the industry. So we brought in an investor which is really exciting. We're expanding. And now we would have to assess with him. Okay. Now. Do we want to be in the CD plush THC space? It's not as easy guys new product line. We got to teach is borders. Now, we gotta deal with the galleries. Now, we are dealing with something that is illegal in a lot of other states. Right. But with CBD, obviously, there's it's more open. So it's yeah. I'm like, oh, I hope we can do it one day. Because know, there's a lot of people in pain. And I think my brother would love to help out other athletes or people who have surgeries and injuries. But we'll see I want us to come up with pens. We'll see what happens in the next two three years. We're rebuilding to sell. And then we'll see what happens just because it's such a crazy industry that suggests to me about the the stick that uses a stick. What? And and then proper dosage for pets. The you mean the like the role on pink cream? Yeah. Oh, there we go. And look what time did I expect? It looks like it looks like a DO Durance. Oh, there we go. Okay. So that's topical pain creams. Okay, perfect. If you have muscle pain, he's on his knees. All that so good. My brother loves it. It's got a lot of like the numbing the numbing sensation in it. So I don't actually have any topical pain. So it's the one thing in our line. I don't use. I see but amazing reviews from that. And then we have the pet line, which is so great. If you're if you're a little furry one is a little, hyper they need for Maui in his final years. He you know, bless his heart and made it to seventeen and a half years old are black lab. But in the end there were times where we couldn't tell if it was anxiety separation anxiety if you will because he was going blind. And so if we walked away he would start barking, you know, so we started giving him low dosages of CBD and that really helped. And now we are doing the same with Rocco. But how does someone know again, how to dose appropriately is something they should talk to their vet about? Yeah. Speech. You're right about it. But at the end of the day, I think finding the founders of a company, and that's why I love that were so connected to the company, and you know, who the founders are reaching out to the actual company and saying, hey, this is the situation that I'm in sometimes your vet if they're not in California, they're not more of a holistic doctor. They're probably not they may not be open minded to it. Even though I don't know what it is about pets. But their bodies respond very quickly and very well to CBD almost better than humans. I'm going to say that not not always. But it's just incredible. I mean, a huge part of our business is a pet line. Like, it's insane. People will not go one month without it for their pets. Because it's it just really helps especially if you have an aging pet or your pet hasn't joint pain, and can they put the oil topically on top of the dog food to they need you into the dog's mouth. Yeah. And yeah, I'm just thinking of like it. How funny it is? When you open the mouth because some dogs love it, it tastes like bacon and most dogs love it. But some are like what is this? You just open their mouth real quick drop it in really fast. I've noticed it helps puppies who have anxiety similar to humans. You're going to notice. You'll notice when you're not on it more. So than when you ours was not something you take right away. And then you feel a sensation like coffee. That's not a stimulant. Right. It's something where you'll go a few days. You'll stay consistent on it builds up in your system. And then all of a sudden one day, you'll say, wow, this week was a little bit easier to manage or I feel like I was able to control my emotions a little bit better. Oh, that's right. That's the biggest feedback. We get is that they were able to function better almost as if the edge was taken off was like a half a glass of wine like oh, all right. I can I can handle today. That's the sensation. It's not a buzz. It's not a stimulant. It's not a suppressant. You're not going to be like, oh my God what's going on? So a lot of people are nervous. Like what's going to happen? I'm like maybe nothing for the first week or so maybe you feel it after a month. And then we have people who write in and say, oh my God. It took one dropper full. And I haven't slept like that in ten years. So as you can as you can tell every single body is different. And everybody's Endo can Kanada Indo cannabinoid system is going to respond different to it as well. Is it? Eagle in all states. Not all I know. But slowly and surely. When I know honestly, Mark my words, twenty nineteen April. But jive years it's going to be the next tumor. It's going to be an every single person's cabinet. It's it's is it legal in. I guess California, Colorado, obviously, mostly the hippy liberal steam you serious. I did not know that I thought it was I knew that teach. See was not only it's it's legal in most states. There's only a few right now that's still have a little bit of a stick up there. But about it. So I'd have to look now. So what's going on is there's farm bills that are being passed and obviously changing every single week like all the time. So it's constantly being updated. But what's great about it right now is if you are someone who you can travel with it though, which is great so airport named to be pretty normal about it. Like, I pack it wherever I go because it's small and it's tiny. But yeah, I take it every single day. I sometimes we'll go, you know, a few days where I don't. But then I get back on it. But again, it's not like a medication. We have to worry about being on or off, which is what states. Do you know, which states are? No, you know, what I should look that up. And and so like, not look I'm trying to find a work around. But like if I live in a state where it's not legal yet. My able to order it from you're still able to order it and we'll ship. It's you. I'm just saying you probably won't see it at the in the stores. I got you know, what I mean? Yeah, we're lucky we live in California where it's when these things become incredibly, incredibly popular, and then the market gets flooded. And then you start seeing CBD being labeled on other products. And there's a saturation of quality. What is your as someone who cares? So much about the quality. What is one of the things that you are concerned that you may see when I'm concerned with is this influx of the CBD Gumy's, and they're sticking it in sugar, and they're sticking it and cookies and baked goods, and so people are now consuming this thinking this is healthy. And this is great. And I understand that the gummy is a gateway to maybe getting you comfortable with it. There's a market for that. There's an inch. But when we started the company, I said, Mike, we're never doing. That I don't want that to be what we're known for. We are a high end company we are known as a really high pure quality tincture that is what we do. We are in oil at the end of the day. That's our main seller. That's what we want to do. I just think that the Gumy's are essentially they're the equivalent of Flintstones for supplements. You would never actually I the Flintstones now and give those to your kids. Well, some people do not a whole foods or you go to a great naturopathic, doctor and get the meta genetics or you get the high quality that is a pure form of the by the way last week. I check out that episode. I did a full episode where you can find quality reputable ingredients for supplements and also shout out to lab door a great site where you can find independent lab testing of supplements. But yeah, I mean like, you said an Amazon there's so many fake products and products that have, you know, ten thousand positive reviews because people have been paid for those reviews. And and so it's it is more difficult to find quality ingredients and being careful of the carrier oil. So a lot of them. Will use a really crappy oil like I dunno canola oil or a weird vegetable oil, and then it kinda smells weird and it tastes weird. And that's really harmful for your gut. I know you're out got integrity R, M C T. That's that's eight something that's going to cause inflammation. Yeah. Literally. So you're taking DVD then with with an oil than Tori. So make sure it's I would say an MCAT. Well, we chose an MCAT because I felt and after doing a lot of research that I'm C T is one of the most healing and safe wheels that you can use in your body. So we'll notice a lot of people take it actually for like IBS. The I'm on your CBD, not for anxiety or sleep issues. I'm actually taking it for my gun forever. If it's an anti inflammatory like, okay? So people who have any got issues as well. Or any digestive issues? It's really helpful as you can tell once you start diving into the research you hear the craziest testimonials, and again, we can't guarantee any of this legally. But it's insane. Some of the things that we hear, and it's just it's amazing in warms my heart to receive DM's every day. And I love that people are are really now becoming their own health advocate. You know, when it comes everything we've talked about today is about coming your own health advocate, right? Like figuring out like, okay? I need to be come detective. I've had these breast implants. I don't feel. Well, I'm putting. Into together. It doesn't feel right for me. I've got pain, and it doesn't seem like taking a painkiller. Attritional opioid is the right route for me, it's really becoming your own advocate doing your research, and realizing that there's a market out there that wants us to do something. Right. And oftentimes it relates to to money bottom line and big industry and marketing, and you know, we become our own advocates. It's like taking back our own power. Yeah. It is interesting. I feel like today we basically covered pharmaceuticals and the plastic surgery industry, which yeah, it is what it is. Right. And using your brain and knowing that at the end of the day, you have to be your own doctor. You have to be your own health advocate because the government doesn't really care. And that's that's okay. Right. Let's let's we cry about it or we could take action. That's right. So knowing that the control of your body, you're in control you eat your control what you put in. It is amazing actually so Kenji. You're amazing. Thank you so much for being here. You are just. Incredible young woman, and I love what you're doing. And I love your message. And I think you'll probably hear from a lot of people in our audience. And I I hope that you've helped many people check out the links below be sure to subscribe to our podcast.

I'll see you in Chicago. The biggest question I've been getting in my DM's lately is Angie. What platform do you use to run your online business and my answer is could Javi? I've been obsessed with CA job for over three years now to run my entire online business. It's my website. It's what I use for my email marketing system to host all of my courses. It's what I use for all my landing pages. It's my everything you guys. And if you're launching an online course I highly suggest ca job especially if you're like me and you're not tech savvy ca job is for you. Check it out thirty days free. Angie Lee could job dot com. It sounds like Sabi but the word is could be. Angie Lee K. A. J. A. B. I. Dot Com thirty days your point to be obsessed if you're launching an online course. I cannot recommend ca job. Nf ANGELIKI JOB DOT COM. Let's dive into today's episode. Baby Grandma's Angie Liam so pumped to be here with you guys. I'm Judy Muller. I wrote a book called. Here's my homeboy. And really it's just sort of dislike Pop Culture way for me to explain this idea of befriending fear and Angie. I think this is why we became immediate. Bff's when we found each other on the instagram. Because Yeah you talk a lot about it paying be brave. And that's why I wrote the book because I really take up issue with the word fearless. Everybody is telling you to be fearless. I kind of say. Can I drop enough on here? Go for it. I say fuck fearless because fearless is for the crazy people. It's for the five year olds for the sociopaths. Like phoebe grandma. If you fearless you would eat poisonous foods. You would never pay your taxes. You Win. Walk into traffic on purpose. You do all this crazy shit. So we don't want you to be fearless. We want you to be brave. And yes it pays to be brave and none of us will be the already in. So I really began to dance with this notion of befriending. My fear when I was studying Improv theater at second city in Chicago and so here I am like working fulltime job in sales and marketing by day by night. I'm doing Improv. And it was making me really get more comfortable being uncomfortable which is really where all the match eclipse and so a lot of those ideas are in my book. It's a book that will help you live a braver life smash comfort zones and get more freedom because India. I don't know about you but I think we're all really chasing is more freedom. Our lives like Financial Freedom. Physical Freedom Professional Freedom Freedom with our health freedom with our schedule. You know freedom to do work. We love the way we want a with people that rock and the only way you'll get that is by getting uncomfortable and having the guts to do things a little bit different than everybody else. I think anybody WHO's breathing. Oxygen probably has a handful of these ready as ally moments. We give ourselves permission to celebrate all of the scary shit. Were out there doing every day. I mean I instantly think of my friends and my wall had like little kids right now. The really ready to have efforts kit right. And then you have this the first kid in. You're you're you're scared. Nervous in the second kid comes along. You're in those babies around on your hands. Like I got this right but you would have never had the confidence baby number two. If you wouldn't have and so I guess I a lot of professional babies and been really scared most of my life and I think starting a business writing a book you know you and Keisha pretty much listening. Your podcast talked me into starting my podcast on January. I was not ready still. Don't feel ready but I'm doing anyway. And it's been game changing getting married becoming a step parent but I think one of my earliest ready is ally moments was when I signed up for my first Improv class at second city in Chicago and I actually tell the story of my keynote saw. Give you like the abbreviated version. But I was thirty years old when I took my ever Improv class. Okay so it's not like I was doing this in my twenties and I remember being so scared to go into that class door like I signed up. I paid the fee. It was non refundable and go all the way to second city. I walked from my apartment in Old Town. All the way up. You know to the building walked up the stairs down the hallway student from the classroom door and I never even went in because I was so afraid that I was too old and that I was too late in that I had missed my chance and so I quit and so the big idea is why do we allow fear to make decisions for us. And wouldn't it be great if we could stop quitting? I thought I wasn't ready so two years. It took me two years. I was reading a lot of Brunei Brown elevated by Bernard Brown. She kind of like helped me muster my courage. I had some good people in my life encouraging me. That helped me get ready in my head mentally but I went back about two years later. Re signed up for that class in walked back into that building stood in front of that classroom door but this time. I opened the door and what I didn't realize at the time. Is that opening the door to that. Like improv classroom. I'm doing air quotes was really opening the door to so much more than just Improv. I ended up studying there for seven years. Almost eight years I auditioned for the conservatory became an alumni. I quit my job. Wrote a book now. I speak on keynote stages all over the country talking about fear in the things. I learned the Improv Theater. In you guys all that's really great in cool non proud of it yet. But that's not the best free part of the story. The first person I saw when I walked into that Improv classroom was a woman named shelley who was fifty eight years old. She was a University of Chicago professor. Taking Improv to connect with their students and there was a guy named frank who was like fifty five. He was like the sales guy from Chicago. Taking impromptu be like a better presenter in the world is story is is there? Were so many people from the age of twenty to sixty doing this brave thing but I waited for two years. You will never be ready. You will never be ready. An opening the door to that Improv. Class reminds me every day. That if you WANNA change your life if you WanNa Change Your family if you want to grow your business if you want more health more freedom more wealth you have got to go scared you gotta open the freaking door and you will never be ready. Judy is inspiring me to go. Do some Improv or both from Chicago. I literally live down the street from second city. And you know my secret life goal above all of this is to just be a comedian. Maybe one day it's going to happen. Let's go fear is my homeboy. Let's go let's go. I love it. I'm like you know what anti it's not too late. You're not too old. Go Media and the rest of your life. I might be twelve dollars a year. But let's go. We're just getting started. I think that's what's so many of us do we don't feel like we're good enough or smart enough or writing enough. Everybody listening needs to know. And if you know the baby grandma listening to this has been following you which she probably has if she's listening to this. This is your anthem right. The only way you will earn all of the beautiful freedom that you want in this life this is why it pays to be brave is by getting uncomfortable and nobody that is out there. Doing these beautiful scary. Things is really fearless. We're all afraid. Most days my knees are shaking like Little Bambi. But I'm doing it anyway. And the more you do this the stronger get flyaways like in our community. We call people fear bosses. So like if I'm GONNA take you to fear boss fitness with me we're going to pick up weights and we're GONNA lift heavy but the weights were picking up is discomfort in the more. You get uncomfortable. The stronger getting so angie. This is what has made you so successful. I love that you post about this all the time like you're you don't have it all figured out every day right and you started from the bottom now. You're here right this drake bom it you know. We all have one follower every start at one follower that I like the first reader. The first podcast episode. You don't need to be perfect. We just need you to show up and be brave and trust your damn self because no one does it your way. No one does it your way. And that's what we need. More people that are out there doing brave beautiful things. Would you say to the woman who is the perfectionist? She got all A.'s in school. She's like Judy. Angie the course isn't perfect or the podcast hasn't looked perfect yet. I don't look a certain way. I'm nervous to make that host or create that content or join the network marketing team or start the business. Because I don't have all the details yet. I don't really know I need to go learn more. This is this is the perfectionist. What would you say to her? Perfectionism is a way fear hides. It is a tool fear. Uses to get you to stop so number one you need to know when perfectionism is showing up in your life it is fear and it is fear alone trying to stop you from leveling up and number two something. I'm always saying to myself and I have a post it. I have a couple of post. It's on my computer here right now. That remind me of things like slow. Your roll you know that when I'm on conference calls the slowdown land. The plane right things like that and one of them is done is better than perfect. And I'm walking through this really big time right now. I mean my podcast was a perfect example. I mean just recorded an episode the other day and I was like Oh my God. I should record that I spent thirty minutes recording and I wanted to re record the whole thing because it wasn't perfect. I'm like oh I miss this and I miss that. I miss this nomex sheet. No Don is better than perfect. Get this off your calendar. Move girl move. Keep going because fear. La Echina- sat there all morning and re recorded the thing right. Just get out of your head and it's funny. I listened to it on the play back. I was like Damn. That was pretty good. Like done is better than perfect. You know we don't need you to run the marathon. We just need you to sign sign up for the race. We don't need you to write the today. Can you write a chapter? We don't need you to have ten thousand dollars on instagram. Can you start with your first host? And oh by the way last thing I'll say about this. What can help the woman. The baby grandma that has stuck in perfectionism fear experiments. It's the big idea behind my work on. Fear this idea of experimenting with if you've got something scary you won't go do step stressing about it and just go experiment. Just go play. Go see how it feels. You will never get any good at creating micro content online until you start creating micro content light and you start finding out what people like what they don't like Angie and I were just talking about her past like the episodes that do better than other episodes she's listening. She's listening to audience. She's testing things out. She's trying new things and I think there is so much power encourage and really being brave enough to just go play. And if it doesn't work remix we're going to try something different reman agreements. I wish I had a record. Scratch can editor like we just remix it like and really at the end of the day everything is a remix life like there is no original idea. It's just your take on nat idea. I want your story. I want your unique perspective on the idea. Like what is your like. What the Angie Lee Perspective on courage? And what are those stories? And what is that origin story? That makes you feel the way you do about fear. I mean there's a lot of people talking about courage but nobody's doing it your way right. And that's why people are drawn to you boom. There's this perception that in order to be brave you need to go jump out of a plane. WanNa jump out of a plane. Okay but I get up in front of thousands of people in seek and I. We're cracks outside so you are your boss. You are brave girl. Does that count? It does okay so I love that you brought this up that let's clarify what that fear experiment means. Because you're right you nailed it like this idea of fear. Experiments can be small everyday thing so their experiments can be big things absolutely like starting a new business leaving a toxic relationship Asking for a raise moving to a new city getting married getting divorced having kids all these things are really big beer experiments. Okay but you don't like Angie said did jump out of a plane or frigging climb. Mount Everest to be brave. You could do things like wearing a color. You're not used to today. Swiping your coffee for Macho not tomorrow morning. Maybe listened to a new station on spotify. The other day I wore a sequined top on stage as a keynote speaker when everybody else was in suits and I was so uncomfortable and I did it anyway right so it could be rockin cowboy boots when everybody else is in heels. It could be asking the first question in a meeting or speaking up first on your team. Conference call it could look like Trying new food. It could look like taking a Selfie in public to get better at not caring what other people think about you right so they can be big and small everyday things but the goal is to work. You're brave muscle your courage muscle because courage and bravery is a muscle in the more you use it really truly the stronger you get. What would you say to the woman who feels like? She's an impostor who am I to be wealthy and make money from courses in loss. Who am I to be a podcast hosts? Who Am I to be anyone? That was something I really struggled with was wondering who am I to be somebody or do anything actually help people. I'm not ready. I'm not an expert in when I started my blog I was twenty years old. Who'S GONNA LISTEN? To a twenty year old talk about life when I felt like an old soul felt like I could help and I wanted to start somewhere but then I also felt like I was a fraud because I was too young. And so whether a woman listening. She's too old to be successful too. Young as accessible imposter syndrome really gets us. It's a real thing. Oh yeah it is the real deal girls. So here's kind of reframed imposter syndrome. Because I think it takes most of us down and I think it gets us to stop at certainly another way that fear hides so this is something I could offer you a unique way to think about imposter syndrome. Something that will make you feel a little braver and a little better about yourself. So when I feel imposter syndrome when I feel jealous when I feel like I'm comparing myself to someone else instead of being like. Oh crap imposter syndrome again. Jealousy again comparison again at night. Just go down this rabbit hole of like doubting myself doubting everything. I'm doing and antiquing on ready now. Not Smart Enough and I'm not good enough. I now have flipped the script. And I'm doing what fear and imposter syndrome doesn't see coming and I now go os imposter syndrome arrived. Will I've arrived? Jealousies arrived owner. No now jealousy. I've arrived comparisons arrived. No no no. I've arrived because I believe when you feel jealous and you feel like in deep with comparison. You feel like an impostor it means you are ready for more and it means you know you are ready for and that is terrifying. So fear tries to keep us in red alert panic mode so do it. Veer doesn't expecting go. Not impostor syndrome is in here. I hear I've arrived because when you start to dance in spaces you never danced before when you begin to do things you've never done before it's going to feel uncomfortable because you freak. Never been there before. You've never done this before so instead of giving fear the power imposter syndrome. Jealousy in comparison the power of yourself the power and celebrate the courage it takes to try something new and also realize it means you have arrived. It means you are ready for more. Ignore it and this is why you're starting to feel a little uncomfortable. You realize what you're powerless. Okay I gotta ask you something that. Maybe you've never been asked but I'm Adam scared. Where do you get your energy? And how do you have such good energy? Because that's the real question. Because with energy we could do awesome things up we can serve the world. Are you a health and wellness? Freeview SLEEP A lot. Give give us the you probably get this too but I get it all the time and it is a hundred percent my superpower. I definitely was born this way. A power plant does not have energy. It generates energy so I understand and realize that I may be a little unique that I run really high vibe and I have great energy yes but I work hard as hell to maintain that to make sure that stays my reality so yes this means that I sleep like a baby. Grandma and I love to recharge my soul. It means that I am getting on the Peleton bike and moving my body means that I read and I take baths and I disconnect tonight have time I time block my counter like a boss you guys. I have now started using this new tool in my life. It's called an untouchable day. Oh my God Angie. It IS BLOWN MY MIND. I learned about this in the book called. You are awesome. It's a book called you awesome and I spoke with Neil we were at the same Keno and I read his book and he was like closing. I was opening in. He one of the things he talks about in this book and how he writes five thousand words like a day is or a week something like that. Something crazy. He's a creators was pumping out all this content and he started doing untouchable days once a week where literally he goes into Kind of creative cave. And I think that has recharged my energy. So I don't get distracted once a week like my team my husband. They know where I'm at but there was a day. We did not have cell phones in the world still went on so. I don't look at social. I don't look at email from like eight to five. I go freaking dark and I just crank out the content I need to crank out for my business or whatever it is that I'm working on and that is really retired. Charge my energy. Not Having to like sit on sit on a million conference calls are being a million meetings. I think our energy can get drained by people and appointments in meetings and what all of these are important businesses. We have to be engaged. We have to be in our social and our email. I don't know who's running your day you or the rest of the world and so I'm a boss like I do not I own my morning. I at least if there's anything you can do one of the things that protects energy is by owning my morning like not allowing someone else to dictate the pace of my day because I believe when you own your morning you own your day and when you own your daisy your life. So can you start to give yourself? You know the power hour of like that first hour of your morning or you know the first thirty minutes. Start Small Micro dose experiment but you know I guess the long answer to that question is i. Do I work really hard to protect it? And protect days of the week. I protect my mornings. I move my body. I use essential oils. I use soul. Cbd honestly you didn't even tell me to say that. I do. I do anything and everything I can to go to therapy like. I do everything I can to reduce my anxiety. Because it's the real deal and energy is everything and it really is contagious. And your success and end. The quality of your life is really dependent on the quality of how you feel if you are sick and miserable and it's hard to move around your body aches and you get migraines and you're depressed and you're anxious. It's going to be really hard to live a beautiful life but when you are feeding the machine and making big deposits to the Bank of you I you know listen. I guess we don't really know we know we can't see the future. We don't know how things are going to end up for us. Boy Man you can really work hard to try and protect the asset of who you are which will give you a pretty beautiful in comfortable life. Great quote called easy. It's by Jersey Gregorek. I think he's like a Russian. He's a Russian wrestler. And I could give that to you so you can look it up into the show notes. But he says easy choices hard life hard choices easy life. It's easy to go to the gym. It's easy to scroll through social media. All Dan compare yourselves to people. It's easy to skip the meal plan and go through the drive thru. But all that. Shit's going to give you a really hard life. Hard choices look like meal planning for the week. It looks like you know reading more than you consume consume. You know creating stuff more than you're consuming stuff online i. It's it's nobody wants to eat. The Kale no was eight a cow but the good stuff you do for yourself.

I'll see you in Chicago. The biggest question I've been getting in my DM's lately is Angie. What platform do you use to run your online business and my answer is could Javi? I've been obsessed with CA job for over three years now to run my entire online business. It's my website. It's what I use for my email marketing system to host all of my courses.

It sounds like bobby but the word is could be. Angie Lee K. A. J. A. B. I. Dot Com thirty days your point to be obsessed if you're launching an online course. I cannot recommend ca job. Nf ANGELIKI JOB DOT COM. Let's dive into today's episode. Baby Grandma's Angie Liam so pumped to be here with you guys. I'm Judy Muller. I wrote a book called. Here's my homeboy. And really it's just sort of dislike Pop Culture way for me to explain this idea of befriending fear and Angie. I think this is why we became immediate. Bff's when we found each other on the instagram. Because Yeah you talk a lot about it paying be brave. And that's why I wrote the book because I really take up issue with the word fearless. Everybody is telling you to be fearless. I kind of say. Can I drop enough on here? Go for it. I say fuck fearless because fearless is for the crazy people. It's for the five year olds for the sociopaths. Like phoebe grandma. If you fearless you would eat poisonous foods. You would never pay your taxes. You Win. Walk into traffic on purpose. You do all this crazy shit. So we don't want you to be fearless. We want you to be brave. And yes it pays to be brave and none of us will be the already in. So I really began to dance with this notion of befriending. My fear when I was studying Improv theater at second city in Chicago and so here I am like working fulltime job in sales and marketing by day by night. I'm doing Improv. And it was making me really get more comfortable being uncomfortable which is really where all the match eclipse and so a lot of those ideas are in my book. It's a book that will help you live a braver life smash comfort zones and get more freedom because India. I don't know about you but I think we're all really chasing is more freedom. Our lives like Financial Freedom. Physical Freedom Professional Freedom Freedom with our health freedom with our schedule. You know freedom to do work. We love the way we want a with people that rock and the only way you'll get that is by getting uncomfortable and having the guts to do things a little bit different than everybody else. I think anybody WHO's breathing. Oxygen probably has a handful of these ready as ally moments. We give ourselves permission to celebrate all of the scary shit. Were out there doing every day. I mean I instantly think of my friends and my wall had like little kids right now. The really ready to have efforts kit right. And then you have this the first kid in. You're you're you're scared. Nervous in the second kid comes along. You're in those babies around on your hands. Like I got this right. Starting a business writing a book. You know you in Keisha pretty much listening to your podcasts. Talked me into starting my podcast on January. I was not ready still. Don't feel ready but I'm doing it anyway. And it's been game changing Getting married becoming stepparent but I think one of my earliest moments was when I signed up for my first Improv class at second city in Chicago and I actually tell the story my keynote saw. Give you like the abbreviated version. But I was thirty years old when I took my first ever Improv class. Okay so it's not like I was doing this in my twenties and I remember being so scared to go into that classroom door like I signed up. I paid the fee. It was non refundable and all the way to second city. I walked from my apartment in Old Town. Got All the way to. The building walked up the stairs down. The hallway stood in front of the classroom door and I never even went in because I was so afraid that I was too old and that I was too late in that I had missed my chance and so I quit in so the big idea is why do we allow fear to make our decisions for some. Wouldn't it be great if we could stop quitting? I thought I wasn't ready so two years. It took me two years. I was reading a lot of Brunei Brown elevated by Bernard Brown. She kind of like helped me muster up my courage some good people in my life encouraging me. That helped me get ready in my head mentally but I went back about two years later. Re signed up for that class in walked back into that building stood in front of the classroom door but this time. I opened the door and what I didn't realize at the time. Is that opening the door to that. Like improv classroom. I'm doing air quotes was really opening the door to so much more than just Improv. I ended up studying there for seven years almost eight years. In addition to the conservatory became an alumni. I quit my job. Wrote a book. Now speak on keynote stages all over the country talking about the things. I learned the Improv Theater. You guys all that's really great in cool not proud of it yet. But that's not the best freedom part of the story. The first person I saw when I walked into that Improv classroom was a woman named Shelley who was fifty eight years old. She was a University of Chicago professor. Taking Improv to connect with their students and there was a guy named frank who was like fifty five. He was like the sales guy from Chicago. Taking impromptu be like a better presenter in the moral of the story is is there. Were so many people from the age of twenty to doing this brave thing. I waited for two years. You will never be ready. You will never be ready in opening the door to the Improv class reminds me every day that if you WanNa Change Your Life if you WanNa Change Your family if you want to grow your business if you want more health more freedom more wealth you have got to go scared you gotta open the freaking door and you will never be ready. Judy is inspiring me to go. Do some Improv or both from Chicago. I literally live down the street from second city. And you know my secret. Life GOAL ABOVE. All of this is to be a comedian. Maybe one day it's GonNa Happen. Let's go fear is my homeboy. Let's go let's go. I'm like you know what it's not too late. You're not too old. Go burn media breast your life. I might meet twelve dollars a year. But let's go just getting started and I think that's what's so many of us do we don't feel like we're good enough or smart enough or writing what everybody listening needs to know. And if you know the Beta grandma listening to this has been following you which she probably has if she's listening to this. This is your anthem right. The only way you will earn all of the beautiful freedom that you want in this life this is why it pays to be brave is by getting uncomfortable and nobody that is out there. Doing these beautiful scary. Things is really fearless. We're all afraid. Most days my knees are shaking. Little Bambi Right. But I'm doing it anyway and the more you do this the stronger you get. Why always like in our community? We call people fear bosses so like if I'm going to take you to fear boss fitness with me we're going to pick up weights and we're GONNA lift heavy but the weights were picking up is discomfort in the more you get uncomfortable but stronger you get so anti. This is what has made you so successful. I love that you post about this all the time like you're you don't have it all figured out every day right and he started from the bottom. Now you're here right this moment you know. We all have one follower. Everybody starts at one follower that I like the first reader the first podcast episode. You don't need to be perfect. We just need you to show up and be brave and to trust your damn self because no one does it your way. No one does it your way. And that's what we need more people that are out there doing brave beautiful things. What would you say to the woman who is the perfectionist? She got all A.'s. In school she was like Judy Angie the chorus doesn't look perfect or the podcast isn't look perfect yet. I don't look a certain way. I'm nervous to make that post or create that piece of content or join the network marketing team. Start the business. Because I don't have all the details yet. I don't really know I need to go learn more. This is this is the perfectionist. What would you say to her? Perfectionism is away. Fear hides it is a tool fear. Uses to get you to stop so number one you need to know when perfectionism is showing up in your life it is fear and fear alone trying to stop you from leveling up and number two something. I'm always saying to myself and I have posted a couple post. It's on my computer here right now. That remind me of things like slow. Your roll you know when I'm on conference calls the slowdown land. The plane right things like that and one of them is done is better than perfect. And I'm walking through this really big time right now. My podcast was a perfect example. I mean I just recorded an episode the other day and I was like Oh my God I should record that. I spent thirty minutes recording. It and I wanted to record the whole thing because it wasn't perfect unlike missing. I miss that. I miss this sheet. No Don is better than perfect. Get this off your calendar. Move girl move. Keep going because fear law. Echina- sat there all morning and re recorded the thing right. Just get out of your head and it's funny. I listened to it on the playback I was like. Ooh That was pretty good. Like windows done is better than perfect. You know. We don't need you to run the marathon. We just need you to sign sign up for the race. We don't need you to write the book today. Can you write a chapter? We don't need you to have a ten thousand followers on instagram. Can you start with your first host? And oh by the way last thing I'll say about this. What can help the woman. The baby grandma that has stuck in perfectionism fear experiments. It's the BIG IDEA. Behi- work on fear this idea of experimenting with fierce with you. Got Something scary. You won't go do step stressing about it and just go experiment. Just go play. Go see how it feels. You will never get any good at creating micro content online until you start creating micro content online and you start finding out what people like what they don't like Angie and I were just talking about our podcast like the episode that do better than other episodes she's listening. She's listening to our audience. She's testing things out. She's trying new things and I think there is so much power encourage and really being brave enough to just go play. And if it doesn't work remix we're going to try something different remix remix. I wish I had like a record. Scratch can your editor like Wigan just like just remix at like and really at the end of the day everything's remix in life like there is no original idea. It's just your take on that idea. I want your story. I want your unique perspective on the idea. Like what is your like our the Angie League perspective on courage. And what are those stories? And what does that origin story? That makes you feel the way you do about fear. There's a lot of people talking about courage. But nobody's doing it your way right. And that's why people are drawn to you. There's this perception that in order to be brave you need to jump out of a plane. WanNa jump out of a plane. Okay but I get up in front of thousands of people in seek and I wear crocs outside so you are your boss. You are brave girl. Does that count? It does okay so I love that you brought this up that. Let's clarify what that your experiment means? Because you're right you nail dead like this idea of fear. Experiments can be small everyday things so your experiments can be big things absolutely like starting a new business leaving a toxic relationship Asking for a raise moving to a new city getting married getting divorced having kids all these things are really big beer. Experiments pay. But you don't like Angie said jump out of a plane or FRIGGING CLIMB. Mount Everest to be brave. You could do like wearing a color. You're not used to today swapping your coffee for Macho not tomorrow morning. Maybe you listen to a new station on spotify. The other day I wore sequined. Top on stage is keynote speaker when everybody else was in suits and I was so uncomfortable and I did it anyway right so it could be rockin cowboy boots when everybody else's in heels. It could be asking the first question in a meeting or speaking up first on your team conference call. It could look like trying new food. It could look like taking a Selfie in public to get better at not caring what other people think about you right so they can be big and small everyday things but the goal is to work. You're brave muscle your courage muscle because courage and bravery is a muscle in the more you use it really truly the stronger you get. What would you say to the woman who feels like? She's an impostor who am I to be wealthy and make money from courses in Las. Who am I to be a podcast host? Who Am I to be anyone? That was something I really struggled with was wondering who am I to be somebody or do anything or actually help people. I'm not ready. I'm not an expert in when I started my blog. It was twenty years old. Who'S GONNA LISTEN? To a twenty year. Old Talk about life. When I felt like an old soul felt like I could help and I wanted to start somewhere but then I also felt like I was a fraud because I was too young and so whether a woman listening thinks she's too old to be successful. Young successful impostor syndrome really gets us. It's a real thing. Oh yeah it is the real deal girl. So here's kind of reframed imposter syndrome. Because I think it takes most of us down and I think it gets us to stop certainly another way that fear hide so this is something. I could offer you a unique way to think about imposter syndrome. Something that will make you feel a little braver and a little better about yourself. So when I feel imposter syndrome when I feel jealous when I feel like I'm comparing myself to someone else instead of being like. Oh crap imposter syndrome again. Jealousy again comparison again and I just go down this rabbit hole of doubting myself doubting everything I'm doing and antiquing not ready and I'm not smart enough. I'm not good enough. I now have flipped the script and I'm doing what fear Imposter Syndrome doesn't see coming in. I now go. Oh Imposter Syndrome arrived will awoke. I've arrived jealousies arrived. Ono Now Josie. I've arrived comparisons arrived Noonan. Oh I've arrived because I believe when you feel jealous and you feel like in deep comparison. You feel like an impostor it means you are ready for more and it means you know you are ready for more and that is terrifying so fear ties to keep us in red alert panic mode so fear doesn't expect go. Not impostor syndrome is in here. I'm here I've arrived because when you start to dance in spaces you never danced before when you begin to do things you've never done before it's going to feel uncomfortable because you've never been there before you've never done this before so instead of giving fear the power and imposter syndrome. Jealousy in comparison the power. Give yourself the power and celebrate the courage it takes to try something new and also realize it means you have arrived. It means you are ready for more. No it in. This is why you're starting to feel a little uncomfortable. You realize what your powers okay. I got to ask you something that maybe you've never been asked but I've got him scared. Where do you get your energy? And how do you have such good energy? Because that's the real question. Because with energy we can do awesome things out we can serve the world. Are you a health and wellness? Freeview SLEEP A lot. Give give us the. You probably get this tube. I get it all the time and it is a hundred percent my superpower. I definitely was born this way. A power plant does not have energy. It generates energy so I understand in realized that I may be a little unique that I run really high vibe and I have great energy yes but I work hard as hell to maintain that and to make sure that stays my reality. So yes this means the. I sleep like a baby grandma and I love to recharge my soul. It means that I am getting on the Peleton bike and moving my body means that I read and I take baths and I disconnect and I have time. I time blocked my calendar like a boss. You guys I have now started using this new tool in my life. It's called an untouchable day. Oh my God Angie Lee. It is blowing my mind. I learned about this in the book called. You are awesome. It's a book called. You are awesome and I spoke with Neil we're at the same KENO and I read his book and he was like closing. I was opening in. He one of the things he talks about in this book in how he writes five thousand words a day is or a week. Something like that something crazy. He's the Creator Swiss pumping all this content and he started doing untouchable days. Once a week where literally he goes into Kind of a creative cave and I think that has recharged my energy. So I don't get distracted once a week like my team. My husband were at but there was a day. We did not have cell phones in the world still went on so. I don't look at social. I don't look at email from like eight to five. I go freaking dark and I just crank out the content I need to crank out for my business or whatever it is that I'm working on and that is really retarded. Charge my energy. Not Having to like sit on you know. Sit on a million cards calls or being a million meetings. I think our energy can get drained by people and appointments and meetings while all of these are important for businesses. We have to be engaged. We have to be in our social and our email. I don't know who's running your day you or the rest of the world in so I'm a boss like I do not I own my morning. I at least if there's anything you can do one of the things that protects manner G. is by owning my morning like not allowing someone else to dictate the pace of my day because I believe when you own your morning you on your day when you own your days you own your life. So can you start to give yourself? You know the power hour like that first hour of your morning or you know the first thirty minutes. Start Small Micro experiment but you know I guess the long answer to that question is i. Do I work really hard to protect it? And protect days of the Week. I protect my mornings. I move my body. I use essential oils. I use social. Cd honestly didn't even tell me to say that I use CD. I do. I do anything and everything I can go to therapy like I do everything I can to reduce my anxiety. Because it's the real deal and energy is everything and it really is contagious. And your success and the quality of your life is really dependent on the quality of how you feel if you are sick and miserable and it's hard to move around in your body aches and you get migraines and you're depressed and you're anxious. It's going to be really hard to live a beautiful life but when you are feeding the machine making big deposits to the bank a You. I you know listen. I guess we don't really know we can't see the future. We don't know how things are going to end up for us. A boy man. You can really work hard to protect that asset of who you are which will give you a pretty beautiful uncomfortable. Life great quote called easy. It's by Jersey Gregorek. I think he's like a Russian. He's a Russian wrestler. I could give that to you so you can look it up to the show notes but he says easy choices hard life hard choices easy life. It's easy to go to the gym. It's easy to scroll through social media. Dan Compare yourselves to people. It's easy to skip the booze not meal plan and go through the drive thru. But all that. Shit's going to give you a really hard life. Hard choices look like meal planning for the week. It looks like you know reading more than you consume consume. You know creating stuff more than you're consuming stuff online. It's nobody wants to eat the Kale. Nobody was ate a cow. But the good stuff you do for yourself. The payoff will be better in the long run right hard choices easy life you know saving money do all those things that just suck in the beginning really pay off taking the vitamins going for the walk putting your social media. It's hard to do that but boy is going to give you a really good life you you do. You eat really healthy. Do move a lot like I have an eighty twenty lifestyle so eighty percent of the time. I'm really good right. Eat really good. I move my body almost five six times a week. I mean I'm really those are those are non-negotiables do a lot of walking essential oils. I'm really focused on like the at maintaining like lessening anxiety and maintaining my energy but twenty percents of the time. I'm naughty so I drink a little wine and I'm going to have a cheeseburger from time to time and you know I'm GonNa. I'm GonNa have the milkshake. I mean. Listen you gotTa Live Your Life but eighty twenty kind of I my rule of thumb in love it without our health and wellness. We don't have anything so again. We could talk about chasing dreams and doing all these big thing. If a woman doesn't feel good you can't do good. You cannot be exhausted and brave. You cannot be overwhelmed and brave you cannot be crazy busy in brave because bravery requires energy and stamina and focus it it requires you to be alive on the front lines of your life. If you want beautiful things to happen for your light for your family for your business you gotta be ready. You got to be ready in. That requires energy. So are you feeding the machine and I think a lot of women MOMS especially we feel so guilty about taking care of ourselves and I'm in the camp of fuck at issue right like nothing works if you don't so stop feeling guilty for taking care of yourself because who do you think is going to benefit the most dogs scratching himself. Tito can we? I'm on a podcast. Keenan's Jamison Monacans. We're on a podcast laying. That plane was a Mike. Because who do you think is going to benefit the most from you being the best version of yourself? Everybody else you keep putting your last self lasts for.

So if you're ready, let's go. Let's dive in. Low everyone, my name is Berry, Berry but everyone calls me berry I am a holistic mental health educator and practitioner and my number. One goal is to teach female entrepreneurs how to have pain. Free Periods Woo. My periods are not too hot, sometimes the pain on that very first day, the first forty five minutes me and the bathroom floor have become best friends and the toilet bowl of Buchanan. It I'm getting episode guys, so it's been one of my life missions, not only. Only with with creating products around it now in in the future that you guys will see, but in my own personal life figuring out what the heck is going on, and what happened is when I was sixteen, I passed out at six flags in the bathroom, and that was my first episode, asserted learning about blood, sugar and hormones estrogen. All of this stuff and I've been obsessed with health and wellness ever since that day I love that. Maybe it was a gift, right? Always. That's the thing. A lot of women don't realize that are periods are power. We just don't understand right 'cause narrative. That's always been written. Told for us is that your period's going to suck? And that's it that is not the case. LemMe Lemme me help everybody out. Periods are normal. Your pain that you're feeling is actually not so the menstrual cycle. We've all heard that. It's twenty eight days long and we've been told like seven days. You'RE GONNA believe five to seven days. That's the normal people think the period start stops there, but it doesn't. There are four phases of the menstrual cycle. First phase is dementia phase in this is one. That like bleeding is happening Dmitri lining shutting. The second phase of it is called the. Face now this is when you're starting to regain the strength, your estrogen levels as well as something called follicle stimulating hormone, but we just call F S H is beginning to rise so your energy levels are beginning to rise near like. Let's grab coffee. I like everyone again like hey. Brands like it's happening. Then the third phase is called on in this is typically when we're all feeling real frisky and flirty and communicative. Hello I'm a new person whole new world. What's up? You want to be around people in Dad's. Because you're estrogen level actually peaks. Another woman called the Luton Hormone is at an ultimate high encouraging that falafel to release then not too soon after so this is about day fourteen day fifteen of the entire cycle I would say probably days seventeen, your estrogen plummets, and this is when we get into the final phase, which is called the lunar phase. This is pms for everybody who wants to grab. This is when you're moody. You're irritable, but there's another hormone at play called progesterone. PROGESTERONE is what causes the swelling in the body, a lot of water retention, bloating bigger boobs. All of those things in this is to support a potentially. Pregnancy okay now. A lot of girls who have excruciating cramping like you. Might have an issue with how high the progesterone levels are in the body, or how low this is all. Has To be balanced. We want hormones as ballot stress possible, and you know depending on your lifestyle your diet, you know, let's talk about stress depending on how high or low that might be even if you're somebody who's anxious because that's another form of stress ripe. That all going to impact your cycle in the pain that you're feeling when you're PMS, messing and you know win the red. River starts to flow. You feel free again, but like that first day or two. You might be like undying. So that is the fourth phase is now. That's the biology I like to us because we're entrepreneurs here. I love to use a menstrual cycle for optimizing my business and being a better entrepreneur, being a better coach in just like a leader overall. Let me tell you even changes relationships in your life when you do this like. Ever since my boyfriend found out the four phases him on the same page link, we are marching to the beat the same drum. Okay, there's an adult clue you download it and you can share with your partner. I can communicate that my emotions are higher and that like I'm not in the head space to receive any criticism I'm looking for problems, so don't give me one. Okay like I'm ready to go, but when you're when you're operating. Operating Your Business I love to use administration face for ideation. There's more brain connectivity between the right and left hemispheres of your brain. Does this typically as one to about seven of your actual menstrual cycle? I would say typically days eight to about thirteen. This is GonNa be that full face. This is creation, and this is like the nitty gritty planning type of creation. Okay, then during ovulation, which is going to be about day fourteen to. Say About Day Twenty? One like ovulation is technically only one day for about twenty four hours. There's still a chance you can get pregnant. In the seven day windowsill during this phase is Davis execution and communication. So this is when you want to be launching. This is when he wants to be onboard clients. This is when you WANNA. Have your events. This is when you want batch. Create content because. Because, what's happening is your energy. Levels are higher in your like can do more, so you feel like you can do that. Fifteen hour workday go nuts life just after that. No, if you don't regulate your energy during these phases, you might pay for it during PMS. You WanNa sure that days like twenty one through twenty eight. You're bringing your cortisol levels down and this is what I liked. Liked a call, our analysis face our reflection baiser. Hey, remember NATO do. We're looking for problems? Okay, this is when we're testy. Right so instead of looking at problems with everybody around you look at the problems within your business. Take a second look at the analytics on your instagram. Your email marketing whatever it is, this is a really good time to say okay. I like problems right now. Let me. Me All the problems. Preventing me from being the best entrepreneur can be being the best heartland can be. This is fascinating that no one's talking about this. Because everything in life is in cycles. So why don't we treat our business? In a cyclical manner, I can't give that ideation energy twenty, four, seven, all thirty days and I expect myself to, and I'm really hard on myself with that your. Eyes to the fact, that I can't be in ideation all the time, and nor should I put that pressure on myself to be. This is a science resource for all my girls who are super super nerdy leg I am with India's. It's called the fifth vital sign. It literally is an encyclopedia about your menstrual cycle, and so like these books are in there, but I will be honest with you. They're kind of overwhelming at times. If you're not immersed in it so then I just give you the cliffnote version, and like make a little sexier and. Easier to remember and so yeah. Wow, I feel like. Maybe my painful cramps are coming from the fact that could be right. We don't know yet, but it could be from the fact that when I'm supposed to be an analysis twenty one through twenty eight I'm an ideation I'm just going Ham overworking and then my body never got the rest of needed, so then when I administration, it gets mad at me. Right there's there's three things you should always be focusing on stabilizing your blood sugar levels supporting your adrenal and making sure your process elimination is literally the best it can be so elimination and detoxification. These are like the three things that he will literally just WANNA grow gray sober. I know you are like very into health stop, but I can guarantee you. Your adrenals probably need a lot. Lot more support. When you're in ideation as opposed to win, you're just creation or execution in ovulation, right and ovulation. You're like I could keep going all day long in your body wants you to, but you're PM, messing no, this is the time to fill up baby grandma's cup with the best four sigmatic possible gray turn on the net flicks Oh. Yeah, you guys India's like cracking you. Know me so well. I watch I know you. I, know you. Here. But a little dropper is soul. TVD and you're forcing matic. With the sole CBD. Bath bombs listen. Let me tell you. Personally for me when I'm PMS. I, do like four hour work days. I give myself about two to three vacation days and I'm saying that with like air quotes for reason, the reason I do this is because I know. My Body needs to be relaxed in order to release a lot of times. We WanNA push push push push push and then they're released happens and we're like. Where did you come from while if you were paying attention? You would've known so you know. Put It as an entrepreneur. If you put it in your calendar, do it. If you have team, you delegate to you like I do. A. We're not talking to these three days. It look all the women who work with me. They all know my cycle based off of when our calls are scheduled in. What's shows up on their air table. That is amazing gene. Only do discovery calls really like I do? Discovery calls mostly like every Friday, but like I only really try to do them during ovulation, because that's when you have to close it right like and that's when I feel like talking I have a lot of energy. I'm like look which is like. Let's do this. This is crazy, so my just ended two days ago so I'm in your in your FA- liquor face. I. Don't know if he's still have your whiteboard for your shower. Visibly the perfect time to make sure you're getting the fine tune details of zing starting this phase. That's what I always tell people. This is like when you really WanNa, look at something like critically and say okay. The last time I did this. It looks like that. What can you do to make it better this time? Let's talk about adrenals because? Who Entrepreneurs I actually think? Every entrepreneur just has stage one adrenal fatigue just because we're all working so much so hard and entrepreneurs are usually the type of women and men who overwork because we love it so much, and there's no clock clock out it just Saturday morning. Let's go Sunday afternoon. Let's go right so I'm sure my adrenals don't like me as much as I think so. What have you seen to help the adrenals foods? Sleep obviously, a sleep is the number one thing like all who are like staying up late hustle and grind time health over hustle remember that like end of story. Okay, health over hustle. Okay, so with adrenals I think the main thing. Medi share about balancing the blood sugar, supporting the adrenals, and we'll talk about protein, healthy fat and fiber in there. Okay, those are the three main things that I would say. Every woman needs on her plate to support her adrenals. And then making sure you can poop. Like people don't WanNa talk about I love. Let's talk about it. I'm just straight up. Say like making sure you can and like your sweat, and even if you have hormonal acne, these are all processes of detoxification and elimination in the body, so make sure that stuff is like altogether really like to focus in on blood sugar stabilization so eating every three to four hours, sometimes depending on where I'm at in my psych on link, eat every two to three hours goes ovulating. That's just how I am. Personally I wanted to gobble everything up. Her stablization helps to support the adrenals. adrenals and then intentionally decreasing your cortisol levels for those of you who don't know how to manage your stress or anxiety. We have to figure out how to take control of it. We have to do a better job of that. Because a lot of times, people forget that you know if you're stressed out, you're still anxious. You might think you're controlling in running the show really I'm stressed, but I'm still going have is like. Take a nap as okay because when your cortisol drops. Okay, you can have happily. Work towards anti inflammatory things throughout the rest of your body, you know not maybe showing up on Instagram as much a big when I go on instagram when it's that time of the month I, literally just reshare people, stories, or like old post on even like. Hey. What's up flow tribe? That's like what I call my community. I don't do that during that time. I came away. Now I'm just GonNa follow you and I'll know your period basically. You will, you'll be like Oh okay and like I talk about it to like I. Tell People Which Day of my cycle I'm on because like I know. My audience wants to understand how to utilize what I teach in. What help woman with, but like said they WANNA make sure I'm doing it to right like leading by example. This is fascinating because I don't think a lot of women are doing. This I think a lot of female business. Owners are just Hustle Hustle Hustle till you can't hustle anymore. They're not taking into account their biology and their hormones and their period there just the I we need to start doing this. Listen optimizing year. Flow is the greatest secret they never told us.

That's how we're helping. Recalibrate in rebalanced the hormones as much as possible so the more detoxification you can do whether you're in sauna getting that glow on, and getting it out or a lot of women unfortunately have a lot of toxins backed up in their gut with is also going to be why maybe they're struggling with Moody. Nece into these are things that we want to be mindful of I. Love Talking About Poop. What else? Else. Can we do to help us poop? Is it more fiber on our plate? Are there supplements you love for talks vacation? Let's get into supplements in Food Luke Warm Lemon water. Okay, it helps actually wake up your metabolism in the rest of the organs in your body. When you go to sleep, and you're still for that long, you just WanNa, wait the body into gently now what I've personally been practicing recently has been celery juice. I am like a big fan of the medical medium I utilize those protocols in might WanNa Moon. Work Love Love Love. Juice I don't care if anybody says is the best poop mover ever. K, it is the go. These are the four things. Every woman needs in her medicine cabinet by tax. Okay, it helps to promote hormonal function based off of the way the Glenn. Release it, so people don't know this, but your menstrual cycle starts in the brain by Texas, my number one thing it really helps with anybody who's feeling extremely bloated in dealing with cramping, because it's just naturally there to balance your hormones and try to get the liquid form of it as opposed to like the actual pill form so that it can get into your bloodstream. The next thing is magnesium. You do want to make sure that you can have your magnesium with calcium or zinc, whichever one works best for you also pair it with a B. Six vitamin. Just your vitamin. Let's just say that helps with your bloating cramping. It relaxes those muscles. We don't have to go super in-depth about that, but like also this is why you want chocolate girls. Because you need something to help, relax your body and chocolate. Specifically I like CAL has allowed of magnesium minute of so for me. Girls with hormonal acne now. This isn't something I personally struggled with, but it's something that I tested out in recommended to clients evening, primrose oil. It contains an Omega, six fatty acid, and this can help to not only regulate the hormones, but clear up that skin, and it gives you more nerve function in skin, elasticity, lasting I recommend is organic raspberry leaf tea. If I were to say anything like the number one thing, every woman needs to have every single day at least twelve ounces of it, it would be organic raspberry leaf tea. It changes your period cramps altogether. When I was growing up, my was heavy bleeding and cramping into I would skip school I mean I remember working in corporate America and I was like I'm. I'm not going into work this day. Because my cramping was so bad and like I did not feel good organic rasberry leaf tea helps it. Has Something called alkaloid? There's alkaloids in in what they do is they help to strengthen and tone the lining of your uterus, but like the muscles so that it makes the release easier an IT helps to ease the pain of the spasms that are happening in the uterus as well. Wow, so shy, just be chugging this organic raspberry leaf tea while I'm giving birth one day, not a doctor, but like if I was I would recommend. Just like down while giving me I think. If you get into the habit of doing it, so I personally do one cup every single day, and then the week of my period. What I like to do and try my best to do is due to a day. Why how? This might be a game changer for me, I think it will just what you shared. I think adding an interior routine, and then of course managing that court it's all and then also let's talk about SOS salt oil and sugar crag. These three things are working against your hormones as well as alcohol and caffeine. Friends I hate to tell you this I look. Caffeine I love a good law day I. Really Really Do, but my hormones don't so I do one hundred twenty milligrams of caffeine Max a day, if I do more than not like I'm overdosing on caffeine I, have a headache. Can't I can't function soon. Just be mindful of that. Okay? Upper in the morning with your caffeine. And then you continuously have offers, uppers uppers, and then at the end of the day, or like I want to wind down, so then you have a Downer in your system a low. What are your neurotransmitters trying to do? They don't know what they're trying to receive. Your body's just like okay. What do I eat? Okay, thyroid telling my body needs what in your thyroid does tell your body what it needs in? It's redirecting all of this traffic and your body's like okay. I'm just going to put you in pain because I'm in pain. Wow, so give us this. Give us your flow Elixir again as they can write this down. One Part Kah cow. One part lion's Mane. One part adapt degen, so I like to do Maka or Asheville Gonda. And then probably Fourth Cup of hot water. Probably, a Half Cup of milk, and then I profit together, add a little sweetener. We will have local honey around these parts and some cinnamon, and that's it now I like to do this before my period so that week leading into my period instead of return for a coffee. This is what I'm reaching for Yeah. Oh I love. Those were so similar. That's literally what I've been drinking pretty much every morning. As I just do one scoop of chocolate, gold, organic by I'll add in some lions maintain Ashville Gonda Agnese EUM, because I've been researching at that like you said. Said is really good for blood flow cramping. Magnesium really does need to be paired with a B.. Vitamins or zinc calcium, so it can be absorbed properly for people like to grab a lot of different supplements and don't realize that you need to know what goes with what we need to know how to pair these things, and so that's why I'm like. Make sure like I love a magnesium, but makes repairing it properly with beef vitamin. What food have you seen to be really really healing, so avocado is my favorite for when I would say probably three days before my. My period starts, and then the day up my period for me day to is like my worst day so i. really enjoy then also salmon, and then she `seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and what should a woman's plate look like most of your plate needs to be that fiber, so it doesn't matter if it's like fruits and Veggies, which we highly recommend okay guys, fruits and veggies always says most of your plate, but also you can throw in some of those pseudo grains like king. Juan things like ask him from there. You can go fifty fifty on the. The other half of your plate. If you want to really your choice for me when I'm working with my client, I'm looking at what their hormone report says. I'm looking at the thyroid report that I go through with them to make sure that we're getting the right things as opposed to just being like do this. That is a standard that I like to go by. But if you have hypothyroidism or something along those lines what I'm going rack, men would be a little bit different, very. This was so informative. This was so good. You're not only hilarious, but you weren't. I'm just like you guys aren't see the video I'm just grabbing up is she is hilarious? I have my my notepad. Okay ideation creation analysis. Show I mean on my on my instagram I have this graphic of the different phases of the cycle and go in depth, explaining it, it's probably the best thing by graphic designer ever did. Where can everyone follow you? Creep on you. Find all of the things work with you. Can they go so coming out with me on Instagram? Knots, Mangy M. my name is Barry on Albury Burien Instagram, but it might be hard to find if you don't know how to spell it so type in pms because edgy. Lee taught me how to optimize my bio. Okay, so type in PMS in periods. Don't I meet? I promise I'm likable right there. You can come out with me. My podcast flow with. Theory and it used to be called. The period podcast and my website is called fixed flow and flow is health F. L. DOT COM picture flow dot, com I love guys. Go check out her website podcast right now if you.

HOW TO MAKE FAST CASH AS A WELLNESS COACH ONLINE. THE #1 MISTAKE YOURE MAKING THATS HOLDING YOU BACK FROM MAKING MONEY ONLINE

"Though if I had to start over as a health coach online and needed to make money fast. Well that's what today's episode is about my friend. If you're a new health wellness or life coach. This is the conversation for you. Sam skelly and I felt like it would be super helpful to give you the real deal. No bullshit no fluff on what money-making activities you should focus on if you want to start monetize ing as fast as possible. Listen you're my friend? I'm going to be honest with you. I'm not going to sugarcoat anything building. A sustainable online business takes years and years of hard work and consistency. And I know the beginning isn't really fun. It's super frustrating. It feels like it's never going to work and you're spinning your wheels. So I'm sharing with you. What I did to land my first few clients online in hopes that it helps you to start making your first one a three K. Five K. ten K. Online. And if you didn't know I started as a health and wellness coach. Ten years ago I started as a wellness blogger. I started the blog in my shitty college dorm room. I didn't want to go to class. So instead of going to class a started to create content. I was working two jobs and during lunch breaks or during class. I would record videos and answer back to my blog readers and creek content. I had no fancy funnels. No fancy website. No facebook ads. I didn't even know what a facebook ad was. I had no big team. No team at all. Google was my business coach. Hundred thousand dollars in debt. So that was my driver initially to start this online business. It was to pay off my college debt and I had none of these things but I did have passion and obsession to help women and I was obsessed with earning digital marketing so I showed up every single day on video I made human connections. I started real conversations and I focused on relationship building not sales and that ultimately led me to my first few one on one clients by me showing up every single day and building these human connections with people and utilizing video. That's how I landed my first few clients and that's one of my tips for you. Today is if you want to make fast cash online. You have to get your butt on video. People can't pay you. If they don't know you exist. Visibility everything. Visibility is everything and to build that intimacy and that trust which is necessary for sales. Video is the best way to do this. And it speeds up the sales process right. If if someone sees you on video they may purchase from you within a few minutes of getting to know you and like you entrust you where a sales page is great. But a sales page doesn't build intimacy like video. Does it just doesn't so my first tip is to be more consistent on video. Igt instagram stories. Youtube facebook live. Whatever social platform your dream customer is hanging out on? I want you to show up on video at least a few times a week. Number two is getting intimate in your. Dm's answering every single damn building those relationships sending back a video message or a voice message actually giving a shit about the people that follow you so you can help them and this is how you land your first. Few One on one clients is by providing value and building that relationship and responding to them and being obsessed with solving their problems. This is the time to double down and get intimate in your DM's and in your email number three. I want you to start thinking of ways to build your email list. Maybe this is a free me. Um maybe this is an option and yes you can make sales directly from social media. I'll be honest in the beginning. I was making sales without an email list. But it is smart as a business owner to start building your email list alongside building your social media. Number four is to start with one on one coaching. You'll hear in this episode. Sam skelly and I really put an emphasis on starting with private coaching. If your brand new and you have a smaller audience. It's so much easier for you to sell this one on one coaching than it is for you to sell these passive evergreen products where you need more volume and you need more customers. So one on one. Coaching is where I started. It gave me a ton of market research. A ton of testimonials amazing feedback. It helped me to sharpen my skills as a coach. And it's where a lot of coaches start online for majority of you listening. You're probably going to start one on one coaching. Before you transition into group. Coaching e-books passive courses. And these things that make you money while you sleep. That's not really the reality of the beginning of your online coaching business and again. I'm just keeping it real with you guys. In the beginning I was doing fifteen sales calls a day I had fifteen one on one clients. It was crazy. There was no making money while I sleep. Not at all not in the beginning but remember what you do in. The beginning of your business isn't what you're going to be doing. Three four or five years in so. Those are my tips for you today. One video to get intimate in your. Dm's number three start building your email list. A number four start with one on one coaching so I hope those quick tips were helpful. Let's dive right into this conversation where I ask Sam exactly what she would do if she had to start over. As a health coach online I started doing like old school guerrilla marketing. Yo like I started facebook gliding every single day creating content every single day if Sandra from Oklahoma commented on my facebook you bet your booty I followed up as like Yo Sandra. It's meant the skelly here. I hear that you're struggling with food and body. Can I support you? Can I help? You can jump on a call. Let's do it like. How can I support you? You know I went. There went the extra mile. And you guys listen to me. You gotta go the Extra Mile Right now. You have to if you want to survive in this. Climate entrepreneurs are made in climates. Like this. And if you're willing to go the extra mile to do the work it takes you will win and not only will you win. During this time you will come out the other side thriving because people have stories like I don't want to sell right now. Yes we're going through a contraction but people still are prepared to spend money on things that they care about so create content for that ideal person. Follow up make one to one human connection and put yourself out there. So that's what I had to early days and I would do it again today if it came to that because at work the reason why once one coaching is going to work in this climate and the reason why. I'm calling it. This boutique style is because if you did it any other way. Here's what would happen if you're like okay. I need to make money now. I'm going to sell this twenty seven dollars e book and I'm just GONNA sell a Shitload of them. Well first of all e books do not change people's lives you get paid for transformation you don't get paid for content necessarily and when you do that then you're just hustling hustling hustling trying to slay. These twenty seven dollars in books. What about if you'd flip? That model did boutique style. You started with your high in coaching. You started with a thousand dollars a month ninety seven a month and you had ten clients. Okay great now. You're making ten thousand dollars per month. So maybe you only need three thousand to live off of so seven thousand is in your business that you could put back into your business through marketing through buying media through anything else but if you start trying to slay a twenty-seven e-book you're never going to have the capital to be able to grow your business so is there a time and place for low end products that are just widespread and those like low ticket offers for sure and you just came out with one. I'm coming out with one. It's like yes and it's taken US ten years to be able to do that and for it to be successful so if you're just starting out and you are focused on needing money. Yes you want to help people. Yes you got into this because you love healthy love wellness. You love transformation. Maybe Your Life Coach. Whatever it yes yes yes and you still need to make money. You still need to make money. It is still a business. So what is the low hanging fruit? How can you go after the opportunity capitalize on that opportunity? So you're in a place where your business actually feels comfortable. If I had zero dollars in my bank account and all I had was my skill. I would do the exact same thing I did on day. One of Hungary frankness I would show up on facebook live every single day I would make human connections with every single person that commented and liked on that video. I would personally reach out to them. I would comment on their comments. Then I would reach out to them and send them a voice note or a video. I don't even think we could do video messaging back then. I don't think we could so I would send them a message today. There's video messaging. There's voice messaging do that. Go THE EXTRA MILE. Show your face and she about that all the time. Get on video. Show your face and makes a difference. Yeah so I would do that and you know what I did. I pulled up Google drive and I would create a list of everyone I reached out to. When did I reach out to them? What was their response? Is there a discovery call booked? Did they book a running list? Hundreds of people so within a couple months my one to one coaching program was full when everyone else was trying to do their news and put new paid advertising and pooping that maybe if I get five thousand likes then maybe I'll I don't care I care about Your Bank account so my coaching programmers. Well within a few months. So then I doubled my prices. I went from four hundred. Ninety seven to nine ninety seven. Had the same amount of people so I doubled my income in a few months. You guys kept going and kept going kept going on then. I was like wow actually. I'm realizing that I don't actually like one coaching at the level that I was doing it how much I was doing. I was doing eight hours a day. I'm like this is intense so I then was like wow. All of these. People had the exact same issue every single one of them struggles with emotional eating every single one of them struggles with binge eating every single one of them has body image issues. Okay well I'm GonNa Create a group program. I'm going to take all of my people who just graduated my six month program and I'm going to put them all in a program called the society enter the ascension model. Yeah so then. All of those people entered my group program. They all got to meet each other. A created connection at creative community. A lot of those women are still friends today and most of those women are still in the community and engaged members of the community and then from there. I was like wow now this is growing and growing and Greg let's retreats etc etc fast forward five years and I started a certification program. Because I was like I am way too busy. All of the knowledge is in my head. I need to put this into a framework. So it's teachable and start hungry for happiness certification program five years later and now we have hundreds of coaches so that was the early days of hungry for happiness. But you know what it's like you got to do the work you gotta do the work. I'm getting emotional even thinking of my early days as a health coach because word that comes to mind is hustle and hungry. Just Mo- hungry to make money and I would never take back those days hours of sales calls a day. I'm talking ten. Sales calls a day from my car so I could go to my part time job just to make it work. I DID A TON OF VIDEO. I did so much video. You guys so many facebook lives. I remember your days. You had so much hunger so much. What happened well. You're still hungry? You still have that tenacity and you still have that. Resilience is just in a different way. You don't have to be so am calling a guerrilla marketing. You don't have to be so boots on the ground about it. Your hustle is just in a different variety. But you still have it. And it's less hustled for you right now. It is just more consistency fucking been on instagram stories. Every single day since you were like twelve or something like now I'm consistent because I learned from you but I can remember like five years ago. I'm like how does this girl this? I don't understand how you do this so consistently so much every single day serving your audience every single day I might. Oh man that's really working for and I should probably start doing that more than I'm on there all day long and it really works more than ever is not the time to fart around Sandra. This is not the deferred around my friend. What the Heck are you selling? What pain point or are you solving? What problem do us all in? The health industry either not buying generic health and wellness. They're buying a specific solution to a specific problem. What is what is the problem you saw. What is probably his. Although probably saw again you guys? This is not the time to answer on. Have eight niches. Now that's a luxury and now what you need money. You didn't order number get focused. Yeah hundred percents. The riches are in the niches. You what else. It's just like. I just have a little giggle. I was hanging out with my hungry for happiness. Certification Women on one of their group calls and I was like Yo. Pull up your website. Pull up your shit. Let me see me. Just rip it apart for a second and I can be real af with those girls because I built the trust with them so I was just like giving it to them. I'm like no that's never gonNA work. You're never going to get a client if the bag would you buy that? Nobody you know if you don't WanNa hop on a site or an instagram bio go. That's me one hundred percent. You're doing something wrong. You know what I'm saying like just go on other people's sites and just feel into your body. Is this me or not like is there an expansion or contraction? Are you excited to read that or you? Not excited to read. That hook has got to be so clear. Some of my best students that have graduated from the hungry for happiness certification program are the ones that are like. I help stressed out nurses under the AGE OF THIRTY FIVE. Stop emotional eating. It's like very clear. Oh cool this is the girl for that. I empower women to unlock their divine shockers. So we can all be an alignment and be happy. I'm like what whatever trying to be acute. You gotta be clear. Like I help women who've tried everything and their battle with food and their body. It's got to be so clear. They'll people don't like niching down for two reasons number one. They think well if linage down like what if I don't have any clients that's a fair and then the other fear the second fear is well. I don't WanNa talk about that same thing forever. You guys I've been talking about food and body for ten years and I have a multi seven figure business so I'm just saying that works. I'm not saying you have to do it but if you want money in the bank. I want to serve clients at the deepest level and you want to transform them. Get obsessed with that one thing. I started my second company. Two years ago breath work company. And so that was a chance for me to talk about something different for awhile but right now in the process of launching a food and body product some talking about food and body again. And it's about how can I find different ways to talk about this same thing to make it more interesting for me as a marketer right because if I'm not interested they're not interested so I've been playing with? Okay how can I tie in breath? Work and emotional eating and not only does that excite me. That's still valuable for my client. Because breath work directly helps emotional eaters. So it's just about finding new ways to talk about the same thing but when we are being a Debbie Dabbler. Were diluting our message. Your audience is going to be confused. And they're gonNA be like Oh. She seems nice but I would never give her. A dollar is one of the biggest mistakes. I see. Health coaches making. Let's just say coaches in general? Here's one of the biggest mistakes. Listen up your marketing and your contents are two different things. Oftentimes people try and market what they teach in their programs. And to Angie's point it's way too out of their zone of what they see is as the pain you gotta dumb it down you gotta dumb it down to like a third grade level so if I was to market what I am delivering in the Food Freedom Journey. Which is my membership site. If I was to talk about the content that I'm delivering and how I create transformation for people and break them out of emotional eating if I was to talk about how I do that. And the fundamentals of that and use the frameworks of that in my marketing. They wouldn't get it. They wouldn't get it because the emotional and energetic tools that I use in the program to create change and transformation integrating breath work and etc etc etc is far more advanced than my ideal client of course because I want to bring them to be like okay. Everything you're doing is wrong. When it comes sue ending or battle with food. Please come here join this program. I can't say that I wouldn't have a business so I got them down. I gotTa talk about the pain. I got to speak their language. You know so I got to say. Do you ever feel like you have willpower. When it comes to food why do I say that because they say that to me? Do you ever feel like you've tried everything. How many times has a woman said? Or maybe you. If you're women listening you've said to yourself or one year France man. I've tried everything when it comes to dieting and trying to lose weight and emotional eating so I speak the words that they tell themselves at night. You phrase it integrate way and. Insert yourself into the conversation. They're already having. Is that what you say? Yeah Yeah so. It's that exactly. What is the conversation there? So if I was to talk about the three fundamental energetic states and Beta brain ray whatever if I was talking about my contents that I deliver in my programs I would leave people if I am talking at third grade level to my ideal client. Whose name is Laura. And I was just saying it as is. She's like all you understand me so there's that heart-to-heart connection there is that understanding. Then I add in some of my personal story with food and then there's a there's another layer and then I add. My personality tells him sort of inappropriate joke. Or make a weird face or a voice and that she's like she's also human So she stacking reasons to work with me. Love that that juicy. There's so much Walton. Simplicity and health coaches who? I've coached who are doing the best in war going fulltime six figures they are the ones who have the most basic mission statements. They have the most basic. I help statements in their bio. They keep it simple and they double down on simplicity and they doubled down on what works and they speak the language of their customer. They don't make more than it needs to be. Yes of course once they are in your doors then you can show them all do shit you can give them the weirdest shit you WanNa give them. They come see your methodology but when it comes to your marketing like Sam said guys your marketing and what's inside your actual contents can be a little different Someone in your door is difficult in itself and then once they're in then you can sit them down and say. Hey listen becky. It's actually not about food. I know crazy right. It's actually about food lenny. What it is about the becky would've never walked in your door unless you use the word at suit. Yeah here's another big mistake that people make in this niche and I've seen it over and over again quick question for my fellow entrepreneurs who also suffer from S. B. S. Squirrel Brain Syndrome. Add if you also have SB S. Keep listening my friend. Do you wish there was something you could take. That would give you insane focus during your workday but is also completely natural and caffeine. Free is yes. I have something for you. That may just fix your Squirrel Brain Syndrome. It's one of my best brain. Haxhi grits and something I take before he record every single podcast and every single time before I speak on stage. It's called be brain fuel over the years. I've tried so many things to help me with my focus and I'm so happy that I've found something that actually works. Ballitser helps with fighting brain fog feeding the afternoon slump. Incredible focus for your workday supporting your focus. Your energy your productivity. Oh my gosh. It's my little obsession and if you follow me on stories you know. I'm taking shots of it every single day to keep me focused if you're ready to not suffer from Squirrel Brain Syndrome anymore. Had to beekeepers naturals DOT COM. Use the Code Angie lead to save beekeepers naturals dot com code. Angie Lee it saves you Moolah. I'm so excited. Let me know how it helps. Sps I love you. I love your brain. Your brain is going to love. Ballitser talk about feelings. No must feel their feelings. Almost talk about feelings almost method or stress or whatever it is gonNA scare people. If that I made this mistake Lott I would go so deep. 'cause as light as I am. I also have the other spectrum. I'm very deep as well. I've got both sides and so I was like really planning on this. Soulful deep marketing. If you guys see my content or my instagram like I go deep in my poetry but I put my poetry out there so they can relate to me. It's not a marketing tactic. It's just like I sometimes put my depth in there so people are like. Oh right I talk about the stack of like giving reasons to work with me. So then they see the other side of it but that's not necessarily like direct marketing. That's getting to know me as a human not myself but I was only leading with the feelings darkness but they got stuff for so long and it actually was not effective so we got out even more. We gotTA keep it like real logical real behavioral. Yeah it has to pass the Google test. If you born googling or your product guys if it doesn't pass the Google test it's not a thing absolutely honestly. What do you think you're googling like how to stop emotional eating? Yeah Yeah so simple so basic how to stop emotional eating how to stop binge eating binge eating help Eating too much food help but sears the guys it must pass the Google test. If you cannot see your customer Taibbi into Google. The pain point that you saw ways you confused at. It's not an actual problem in the market demand. That people are willing to pay for those. Kinda go together as mentioned I do a consistent breath work every single morning Monday to Friday eight them. Now I'm getting my audience used to that. I have only been doing it for like a month now. But it's grown from fifteen people watching live to now more like eight hundred eighty five ninety sometimes so it has to be consistent. Same thing with like a podcast coming out and in the email going out you just got to keep showing up. Keep putting yourself in front of your face if you're like hey. I'm not the type of person that can do that at the same time every single day. Maybe your mom. It doesn't work cool but fine. What works for you and show up every single day or show up consistently because again dabbler number. The dollars are who I just made. That up. Sounds good fine a flow that works for you and to stick to it. I used to resist this a lot and I've had to just find something that feels good for me. 'cause I used to always resist this. I'm like I don't want to schedule. Don't want this and I've had to do it in the way that works best remain. I'm like you know what I do breath every morning. At eight o'clock screw it. I'll put live on my audience. Do with me. You know that works for me. I love that that you just made it work with your schedule Yeah Yeah I was doing it anyway. That has built up a lot which has resulted in sales was just resulted in people. Joining my programs that that sort of thing. The show is just like no brainer right now. There's no one that I follow. That doesn't show up on video all the time. Why do you follow? And because she's on video all the time she's showing her face all the time she's doing funny. Carol Basson things all the time you know. It's like Oh this is a funny. This is entertaining. I'm getting value from this great content. You know you have a beautiful way of packaging like really potent content in a lot of humor which is a real skill and if not your thing don't train be funding because it's just gonNa be awkward but show up in a way. That's you practice on video. I love showing people my old youtube videos of like Kay. You think I'm on video. Yeah Scroll back on the old youtube channel and you'll see you find your voice and you find your low and if you're introverted that's cool be introverted on video. You don't have to be an extrovert to be great on video. In fact some of my favorite people I follow are introverts on video. And it's great. I always ask myself what has been my purchasing behavior in the last little while. And why have I made those purchases breath and just observe how you respond to people and how you make your decisions like what is it based on more and more and more? It's personal branding. You know it's like Angie. Leah's a brand behind that Angie lied brand you have sole CD. You have marketing. You have offerings. But you guys aren't like Oh my God I just love how you source e from this place over here. It's like no you love Ange. And how she talks about an how are in. That's the connection. That's the relationship. I am a spokesperson for the things that I offer. Certification pass breath work. You're connecting with me. The personal brand the person in. Here's my creations. And if you like what you see as the person you were going to enter in the next doorway which is the offerings. Because you're like well if this is what I'm getting for free. That must be pretty awesome. Which is delivering her certifications. Do you think your brand would be where it is or you would have had the success that you did as a health. Coach Without Video Duh. No there's no way so. I was out of speaking event about a year ago and the hosted popcorn style. And they're like hey like bridge hand like. How did you hear about SAM? Nine out of ten people said video instagram stories. Your Youtube Channel Video. Facebook live video video video video dude. I don't know where I'd be without video. I think we would be working at State Farm. Insurance together with Carol. Baskin disguised their vision famine. I worked in an office together and it. Not Oh my gosh are desperate have to be in the HR office. Oh we would be fired. So they have a deep obsession turning mediocre health coaches into masterful coaches so that they can scale their influence their impact. But mostly it's their income because when we make more money we can just do more good in the world money in the hands of good people does good things and so this is why we have hundreds of hungry for happiness certification alumni. Who ARE MAKING BANK IN DOING? Good in the world because they have mastered their skill. They are masterful at what they do in today's world. You've got to be a master when someone joins the certification program. I might go. Hey My intention is to turn this person into such a masterful coach. Give them all of the training. The frameworks the tools everything. I know that I've helped. Twenty three thousand people transform with. Give that to them so they can embody it and they can teach it and they can replicate it because I have a proven system that helps but with this exact issue and so when people join the program. That's what they get and you can see the impact of that when people graduate. They have the confidence to go. I know my shit. I know if I'm in front of any client. I can create a sustainable transformation for them. I'm not talking about a band aid on a bullet wound. I'm talking about sustainable. Transformation helping them heal the wound that has created thirty years of suffering sustainable transformation so that clients can finally live the life that they want to live. Finally live without suffering without this battle. And so when you can do for your clients over and over and over and over and over again with a proven framework. A proven system. You are going to become so much more valuable than what happens. Is Your referrals skyrocket? Your money skyrockets your ability to just serve at a deeper level skyrockets. Everything becomes better. You know we cannot be mediocre anymore. If you want a great bank account if you want a great business you have to be great. It all comes down to you and so it's through application and invitation so I make sure that everyone who joins the certification program is prepared to go deep with me. You got a tiny little taste of it a little bit on this podcast but like I say it how it is. I don't take any bullshit. I cut through the noise. I get right to the truth and create clarity so they can execute take action and make money and change lives. That's what this is all about. It's really really imperative. It's so important that we become masterful coaches because that is what is going to take everyone to the next level. That is a win. Win Win for everyone. Because you cannot take someone deeper than you've gone yourself and one of the big things with the hungry frankness. Certification is for the first couple months of the program. I don't even teach you how to become a coach. I pour into you making sure you are confident and have healed any emotional stuff in your system and I work directly with you to make sure that you feel empowered. And I don't empower you. I teach you how to empower yourself so there is no dependency thing here going on but I teach you exactly how to do the framework on yourself so that you can feel energized in alive so then you can teach from a place of service and sharing not trying to convince someone and there's a huge difference there so that's how we break it all down but yeah I mean so important that you have that framework. This is exactly how I create change people. You have that system in place so then you can just rinse and repeat all day long. Random repeat my friends rinse repeat. Make it easy for yourself to be successful. Make it easy for yourself to get results. And like Sam says it just doesn't pay anymore mediocre so become the best know your shit have a framework is actually GonNa be easier for you to coach then too because then you have a step by step process that works versus your rowing Shit at the wall. And you're hoping it sticks so if you're listening to this and you have that fire in your belly year like This is the thing I need. I would love to talk to you. I would love to chat with you. You can head over to Hungary for happiness dot com slash Angie. Le- let us know that the baby grandma the Oh gee baby grandma herself saint you over.

When I started I sold a car to go to Tony Robbins. I need I just the most hell over source will hungry person. We expect that peace be brave. And if you're listening to this podcast episode you need to come. It's not it's like a no brainer. I don't know why you're thinking about it. Just. I really stoked for this. Route me has won the energy is going to be credible with three types of people, but I really want to redefine the offers development space, a lot of these marketing and sales conferences business conferences are really as a why I wasn't cool with that.

I remember the very first time I plugged in a microphone distorted show, I had no idea what I was doing it super surreal years later, people come to you in say your show helping out oppression.

I may or may not be peeing my pants in excitement because this is an opportunity. I've been wanting to gift you for so long, and it just it gives me chills. What I'm doing is gifting you a completely free ticket to pays to be brave. Yes. A completely free ticket immediately, once you enroll into the marketing impact academy and dude, this online course changed, everything for me in my online business, absolutely everything. I'm forever grateful for selene and four. Because if it wasn't for the marketing impact academy, I probably still be spinning. My wheels, not having a niche, not knowing how to master video marketing, not having these six-figure organic, launches, not knowing what to post, not knowing what content you create. I mean. Was a hot mess express. And I know that many of you are feeling this overwhelm in your online business. You're ready to stick a pencil in your eyeball and you're like Angie. What do I do? What do I pose? How do I track my dream clients? How do I grow an Instagram? How, how do I do all of these things? Well, the answers are inside marketing impact academy heads to NGO dot com slash M.

I can't wait for Shalita night to teach you marketing to keep it fun and simple and set a fire under your butts of finally take action. And of course, I can't wait to see you at peace to be brave. You Angie Lee are known for so many things. And it's it's a credible. So you live in San Diego. You're a baby grandma tribe leader euro, CBD empress. You're like a biohacking guru your marketing than your speaker. You're the host of pace be brave which is a number one, marketing and influence than social media conference in America's unsually and your girl master sales, and breast implant illness awareness, you know, spokesperson, and I want to ask you what other titles you wanna have up there on your aunt preneurs, mantle day. This is good. You did your home gay is ability to homework guy. She knows following. Yeah. I am the not a silence supporter. I'm just allowed ASA porter like I love all the twists and turns you've done in in just the last year alone. But really you've been doing this nine years. And I wanna know like I know you wanna have a TV show and I'm ready for your Netflix special. But what else do you want on that mantle? You know, let's, let's, let's just get really real on the show. Right. We might as well. What else do I do, but I really want aside from all of that which is so cool. And it is super surreal to hear that because I love that. I'm able to kind of do it all now. And I have so many different projects and things going on feels crazy and good. And I loved the wellness by racking space the business face. I, I love it all kind of trying to blend them both. But I at the end of the day, the next thing, I want is I want to be amazing mom and wife, like that's that's great. I'm excited about that. It's when I know that wasn't what you thought I was gonna say, but I do feel the more. Curate and really growing into the space really redefining excess money in freedom life found. What is all this? What's it for? What's the point that thing I keep getting back to this is only so it's only so good if you have someone to share it with the end of the day, my biggest thing is I'm on this mission to do both. And I'm on this mission to have it all, and I can't wait to show women that you could do it all because there's not many women showing that you can have both. I'm unemotional figure that out in don't know how it's gonna look but I'll your help you need help getting out to get a baby. And you know, you're like maybe explain Howard. If you the. The banana on show me Hallward. People who, who I don't know if you live under a rock. But if you don't know who injury is got caught up. I'm not this is not a podcast to explain her story, like you need to know it, but I really want you to go back to tell me a time when you were that grinding Nobel, and Angie. And what that was really like. And how old were you and, and any sich certain situation that really popped up that made you kind of wake up and realize, like holy fuck like this is, this isn't just doesn't feel good. I'm losing out on life. I'm not having fun. Yeah, I began the blog and the personal brand at twenty and I would take intermittent breaks but between twenty and twenty six twenty eight twenty seven I would say were the years that I really was head down focused on audience building, brand building critic contents and really starting businesses, I had another physical product of brother and now we bought a new one obviously ZD. And so I always was I was in the zone for Wyoming. Think that's what you're twenties are four to wonder what people were talking about. But I really think that's what your twenties are four. I think immediate not your twenties. Eighty to one listening to this is inter forty like investors, the years building an online granted audience is not super Superfund. It's not super sexy. It's you giving it all away. You create more content than you've ever created need. It's, it's a lot, and I definitely more. So in the camp of a low behold loon space, the whole feel into what feels good and if you don't feel good don't do it. And I get there's this whole like, you know, self love and honoring your body in time. There's a lot of this freaky stuff that's going out round. Unlike some of it, but at the end of the day, I'm like, I'm like a mid west hardworking like Gary vein chuckled, I didn't have fucking work. Like that's why I am. Like, that's what that's what I did, like I just stop work needed. So as much as I want to tell girls like yeah. To read it happened just Natta fest all day, like dude, you gotta fucking reach so much content that you. You wanna you're just like on done almost, but you just keep going. Maybe like the hardcore answer that people wanted expect out of a little side to barrel. But it's like that's what I did you know, and I think that a bully, that's, that's what it looks like for wild. Like you know, that's why I think my relationships didn't didn't do as well with men to be honest, wasn't wasn't all in with that. You know, I was all in with this, this. And now I'm cultivating a relationship really trying to make it a part of my life in show that I can like I said, do both because if you're a vicious entrepreneurial woman, I get this in my damn all the time censure, they're curious to hear this mean how do you find someone who wants to be a rocket ship? How do you build this while you also have to pay attention to your significant, other husband boyfriend, whatever it's, it's a it's a tricky little situation your end in? So you have to figure out what comes first its priorities game. And so what I did for while is with a lot of Greek is, but it didn't work because I wasn't I put this, I this is my baby. This is my kid by mission. I put it before the guy in. So I don't regret that. But now. Like, oh, how do I wanna I don't wanna do this? Yeah. Because now if you want to be, I mean, now, you've had much more of a healthier grasp on balance and desire, it kind of leads me into this next portion of the podcast. They wanna really dive into. So I pulled some quotes from your Instagram, and I just want to know, more of the story behind them, and really what motivates you what really lights you up about these quotes in where they really stumped from the first one is is just to tail end on what you were just talking about its ambitious women only really have two options, a supportive partner or no partner at all. For me. I mean I completely agree. My, my mother was divorced. You know, almost three times you know, one very long term relationship, and, and I had my share of, of menial juvenile relationships, where I was always just more in bishops and, and they need a time to figure it out. But what does that really mean to you to have a supportive partner? And love this. I'll mandated. This is a real deal episode. You guys. I've been interviewed a lot like Isabella to give it up to you. This is like real shit come through this life. But, you know. You know what? Why not do you get to the point where you're like whatever they can know anything if everything, right? But and I get this idea or are you dating? Someone how does that work? You know, I just thought of a longterm relationship ended the engagement, people wanna know what happens to emissions women. How does this work? You have to figure out what I realizing is do I need to support her role or do I need another fireball? Do I need another leader role? Is that it revolt from the limelight? Who is there does need to be clarity in a relationship for its work in? So it's extremely important to have somebody be more of the mascot energy in the feminine. Laird is necessary. I think you have to find someone who wants to be your cheerleader. But if you are woman listening, who's a star of, of what you do have your influence or making sure that they, there's no competition there with that. It could just you could just get confused in messy in a lot of dishes. Living listening to this who are hungry. You're driven you want more. You have to realize that if your mission is extremely important, you this is interesting job for this is a calling this. I have to do this. You have to find a man who is confident enough in his own. Identity in unity at his own purpose that it doesn't scare him. He's not weirded out by it. You obviously surrender into the feminine in the relationship to allow him to still be a hero. But you can't be with someone who thinks it silly or stupid. You can't be with someone who's not your cheerleader. You have to be with someone who just makes you wanna shine even brighter. In allows you to be, and I had to choose between Angie, the brand emission versus who am I going to be going to be in a relationship, and I just woke up on and I'm like, I'm not gonna ever let a man stopping from where I'm going on this, the right guys gonna jump onto the rocket ship, and they'll hey, not only my on this issue with you, but I brought fuel to like, let's do this second, quote. I really want to get some more background on is you said there's a point where you need to stop doing favors and start doing business and I really wanna know where that stem from because it lit me up. And I, I have chills just repeating it now. Yeah. There comes a time where in the beginning of your business. You'll be doing a lot for free. And you always you always will in a sense. Right. You're giving value serving. But there comes a time when you have to realize you are running a business. So there's been a few moments where this, this really hit me in that it happens every few years, or every time I have another stage of growth in my business, where when I was doing wellness coaching. I remember I wanted to give it away all for free. I wanted to give this woman all of the recommendations recipes workouts nutrition. I was just giving I didn't share two dollar because I felt bad I felt guilty and not I didn't honor my gift ranks Alan and I didn't honor that I should be paid to do this work in Slidell exhausted. I felt resentful and that was one of those wakeup calls of, oh, you deserve to be paid to given money back for this energetically, you deserve that in. So I had to really put on the boss hat, and that can be hard for women because it feels awkward seal admit that you're also running a business. And so now again in that situation. The business is blowing up every single day, asked people wanting things for me. And I'm like I want to. But then I have to ask me, NGO Leah's the company, what does alignment with where you wanna go? Yeah. Wanna go under genetically. Can't I do that. Is that right? And so, I think there's a time and place where as a woman as brand ladies listening, you, you can do things obviously still for freer in there. But no the line or the line of your worth no-one. It's okay. Not only is it. Okay. But it's actually useful at empowering engages to say I can't do that were here. My rates like to speak, or to do whatever it is that you gals are dealing. I think we're also of frayed you stand for our worth, and ask for energy back when it really shouldn't feel like you're weird at all. And that's totally normal to run a business. So that means to me is saying, no more than yes. Sometimes opportunities in not being afraid to put a price tag on your worth. I love that. It really comes down to, you know this is your livelihood, right end. And you can't build a livelihood on free. You have to you have to how to quote, you again, like it pays to be brave. You have to be brave enough to stand for your livelihood, and for what you're worth, and the transformation that you are providing for your ideal client, and you are going to provide making money isn't sticky, or icky or weird or grows. It's the energy transfer to for transformation. Yeah. It's don't be surprised at how quickly the universe will move. Once you have decided. My favorite. That's a good one. It's, it's good. Where did you feel this in, in your life recently? Or, you know the biggest time. This is everything I am Reuss ruthless with my decision making this, quote, pretty much encapsulates my entire life. I feel in hopefully something that I'll always he with me. In the fact that it's a choice to be successful to choice to wake up every day and do this. It's a choice to build an audience choice to grow a show. It's all it's all a choice, right? It's all decision, and it's not something I sit to happen. It's a active choice. I do believe in God in, in the universe may think that it needs to halfway, once you've made that decision, but you have to show up for it enough to make it very clear that, that is what you're doing. And you're committed to it writers, no plan. Veal 'Stem, not a huge fan of getting yourself in Alan. I think earned the boats you're all in you're doing it. If you've decided you're going to be successful than you will will there be ups and downs will there be returns. Yes. But once you made that decision in your body has that alignment of a successful person. Successful. You've created identity in your cells, you forever will be because that's the story that you've written for yourself rate like aim over you, the story you wrote, and I think that so many women are kind of waiting for it to happen, making that decision has to be a choice in has to be a decision every Wadi it has to be a hell, yes. This is it. I'm going on the train among the rocket ship. It's moving. It's going like that's it. Right. There's no choice. I'm this ruthlessly committed to, to my vision more than I am to my exclusive what I mean by that is vision, or my life vision for what I want this brand into everything I do works in alignment with that is, is steps is the who was lowered reached that versus sitting in its uses everyday. So, yeah, I think it's important for women to build a more decisive about what they want NS part of that vision. What are your what are your some of your? I know you dear sticky shower imaginable. Like a no. You shouldn't in the shower. About took me in a way place my brain. Where do you really visualize? What's that process really like for you? Because for me, personally, I, I found really great success in my business, my coaching business, and there's all these new things that I can kind of pick up and start is, including -lica- product, e commerce based company, or doing events or there's just so many avenues. And when I am trying to really hone in on what my biggest game really looks like and what I really want this to for the vision for this company to be not just in the next eighteen months, but the next five years, I find myself getting a little bit stuck. So do you wanna share a little bit of a visualization exercise for you? And how'd you determine that, that is the right vision? I'm all about written and visual manifestation, if you guys were made bedroom right now, you would literally see sticky notes everywhere. My nears with them. I have seen the my dream man to, to t of who he is on show. Calling not in. I mean it's, it's crazy. I'm a huge believer in everything. I write down habits. Everything I've done happens. I'd journals of things that are happening right now that I wrote down, which is crazy. So, for example, one of the things I do is I write as if it's in the present head. So what I've been doing? For example, is every single day. I wake up I journal as if it already happened. This could be x amount of money is coming, my way, or so excited for the Manta majoring T showing up so powerfully or I can't wait to serve fifteen hundred women at face brave. I can't wait to serve fifteen hundred minutes as I just write it down as if it's already done in. So it's me, having law of attraction of aspect to this manifestation, where I'm literally bringing in what I'm energetically of the lable, sore, and still, I love to put it on sticky notes my shower notes. This is a great exercise for women never really done this. I think is one of the most powerful things you can do is to start speaking, or writing it into existence and embodying it. So the. The key is to write it, and then to really feel it. Sometimes, I'll close my eyes in really feel in my body, like, wow, what is that gonna feel like what is it gonna smell? Like look like sound like what is going to be like, when you're on that same fifteen hundred people. Are you are you ready for that? Can you energetically take that in are you available for that? In some fears will come through, of course. I'm like, oh, shit is the stupidest, he ever known Evangeline it done. Whatever in the night, breathe through it. No, no, no, no. Go back and I train my kids feel at home. Would you can? You don't join to join like bring myself to higher state again. I embody it. But on it's cool because then I wake up every day at I see it so enough. You, you make it your reality. It's all about making it your new identity in reality. So than your alise can to that issue, seven to it in a new how you make you take the correct actions. They'll like telling my VA by me sticky notes. Amazon prime sticky note. Sticky note centers raising I have have some around. Yeah. I feel like it's, it's the whole thing of in, even if it's, you know, you have obviously, fifteen hundred women pace be brave, which we need to talk about is such an incredible incredible treatment that you will achieve, and there's women listening right now, who are struggling like fifteen hundred women like I won't get there. I'm struggling to get that one client, or that one, you know, program, or that one speaking gig and this exercise can transfer. It doesn't matter how big or small what you want is. And it's it's big for you. And you can bring it into fruition by one writing down like what you're saying, Angie and practicing the gratitude for for the future resort. Kind of what you think it is, is you're like, really feeling the garage to what is going to feel like yeah. And I think, for example, let's just be real, I could write down, what I wanted to generate from the event edema between the event for fellas would not be because they're not get yours, but on real deal right there. But I go back to why am I really doing what I write it down a half of our really pure place. Like, why am I I'm there to serve women? Like that's what I'm doing. So you have to make sure you already intentions are coming from. Really cure place again with a man can't just really I want to do to show my doorstep. No. Yeah. Wanna loving cheerleader or a support system to come in and showed me what love is in China and the helped me shine my light, you're writing it for a place. If you want to feel versus is just the exact details. Always what you want to happen, and definitely helpful for me to it's really diving into what's like the intrinsic motivation. Right. Like you love what you're saying you're heater serve these women. That's what motivates you, as well as fun and providing for family down the road. And I I love that. And I'm really excited for you. Angie have babies. We're gonna have all the fun the process to have babies spun. I want to dive into just like some really speed round questions to kind of wrap up the pod. One my first question is what can you give any little hints about pays? What can we expect that pace be brave? And if you're listening to this podcast episode you need to come. It's not it's like a no brainer. I don't know why you're thinking about it. Just knew it. Like what, what are you doing? But can you give us any? You can you give us a little bit of a tip of what we can expect for pay. Sue very Brown to I'm really stoked for this round because one the energy rose going need credible three times on people. But I, I really want to redefine Purcell development space for live events. And my vision is to make it obviously the next UP w dot that is the vision as a brand is wants Tony phases out, and all these is out a lot of these marketing. And sales conferences and business conferences really as I wasn't cool with that because I think that it needs to be and he's eating an easy fun. And that's just who I am. And so when I thought of crepes event, I really thought of women in my community wants you come together, have agreed time, medium person network, and then also learn these incredible tactics how to grow their business, how to overcome their fears how to feel unstoppable. How to be hosted by do it in a really fun way versus these conferences were stuffy in cold in a they use scarcely tactics. It's just good in a seven grams. Of course I'm like, let's have a party. Let's talk about business. It's a business party like up. Learned a business party. I some mazing do you have any an- and it's also only the one percent of the one percent, go to events and every single time I go to any live of any mastermind when I went to his grave last year. Something happens. It's, it's what we're talking about. Earlier, like the one, you get out of the way, the universe will move with you and along with you, and I remember viscerally when you launch pace brave I was making less than a thousand dollars in my business at the time a month. And that was my only source of income. And you and it was all my birthday to was like October. Twentieth was my birthday and I was like this is a sign. I can't afford to go, but I swipe my card anyway. I snagged a VIP ticket, and I remember it was like months and months before, and then when I got there my business blew up, and I just got out of my own way. I didn't. Have the money to it. If we were looking at logistically in your mind, it would have everything would have said, don't go you can't afford it. The flight Airbnb the ticket, but for me was, like I had to listen to my heart, 'cause we are convinced that our mind knows everything. Our mind is really smart. Our mind is knowledgeable. It's wise, but it's our heart that is wise and it's our heart that knows our true intentions, and what we really desire and, and is what loves us and we'll is fueled with with passionate and desire for for your goals and your dreams and -solutely. I just I just know that one of the greatest skills that I can help women into foster is resources, wholeness man because of that. I didn't know anyone having one hundred thousand dollars in debt. When I started I sold a car to go to Tony Robbins. I mean, I just the most hell over source hungry person. I figure out a way and just like you. Do you figured out a way, and that is how I know with the almost certainty that you are in will always be successful, because you figured it all it, here's what I tell women. They're like, I don't know about a planning enough. I grew up sicker out. Can I give you a secret YoM like real deal top sister by here? If you think that getting to an event, getting on the airplane in, like going through event is hardly tribe. Owning a business like hesitant easy. You're running a business every day. You're gonna issues financial shit that happens in all this crap. But you don't play going to party like yet. Maybe move around some shit. I dunno. But like it's not Christ. It's, it's not. Yes, it's one of those things that if you stay, you'll do an extra you probably won't like you'll never do it. You almost wanna beat yourself. Just go when you're like off. Gotta move this, this. All right. Let me do this because I've been that girl. You know, you wanna people stated or go to Tony Robbins, and that never go Jimmy girls are gonna stay gonna be what basic regulated never like logo in twenty forty like what I'm like ninety years old. You know. I'm like old instead e like you should go dollar real. Oh. When he was triple. Oh, grandma like going out. But I'm still a sexy and hot and young like, don't wait till old like grammar balls. We'll have fallen. Ban. Those are going to be love. No, no. I just, you know, I gotta get there just you known. It's fun. It's the best ever. We g gonna hang up all your fucking people that you ever want, like I made so many friends, when they went the relationships that you, cultivate, at these events are like no other. If you don't go guess what? Homegirl you're just another girl on the internet and no one cares about you just being honest. Just being you have to go, so you become a real person. I do I wanna I wanna me Becky and literally like this is let's just core insert corny corny stuff right now. But let's be real I, I do what I do because I love helping women, and it's so great, receiving Diaz in comments at messages, emails, it feels good. But there is nothing that compares to a woman looking you in the eye and just even if it's ten seconds, saints you to so much your show, literally made it possible for me to do what I do or to be happy. Like that's it for right? Like wildfire my jewiness, if not for that I shouldn't be in this industry. And so, for me, it's my way of meeting women, and dinking them in getting to see their face. They're a real person end. It's insane. What they tell me because I'm like, are you sure you're talking to my life is crazy. But it's cool it it's, it's necessary. And I think that all leaders should force themselves to eventually have ups or have situations, so they can meet their community because the community is what not only pays the Bill. The reason why you do what you do. Yeah. It's cool as I love it. I wanted to you guys. I want you to tell me like, obviously, hopefully, the show is helpful or in the eye grout, reddish water you. Security security, this time I was like will because it okay crazy. It was cool. I, I really drove home and I was like, wow. I remember the very first time I plugged in a microphone to start a show. I had no idea what I was doing. I didn't know if anyone would listen to it. It's just it's super surreal years later. People come to you and say, your show, healthy out, depression. It's insane, because they're thing that there was a day riding on a plug in a Mike and do this. You know for me. It doesn't mean a lot. I want to do and a women listening. I want you to come to be brave and meet her. I R L at pace be brave dot com to get your ticket. So much indie entre. But.

"What is the thing that lights your soul on fire, and if you're doing something outside of that, it's draining your battery faster than your battery would be charged. If you're doing something that you absolutely love, you don't have to have one purpose. You just have to do something that later soul on fire and eventually to build up into something. So massive, you're GONNA put yourself. In the future realizing that source runs through you, it's not separate so I get my energy from that. I'm not getting my energy from other people from nutrients even though I love organic superfoods but really my energy comes from something in the invisible world. That's far beyond anything that we can even see in this realm and I feel that money is not mind to own. You'll never see U-HAUL truck. The hearse game only here for a temporary moment time and the money that I have I'm the steward of it so I can never lose it. The money is just an expanded. It's an accelerator of who you naturally.

He grew up in Michigan and now. He is the founder of one of the largest wellness companies guys were by a hundred million dollar company that just gives me chills to think about because the idea started in drew's at San Diego apartment just a few years ago and you know my obsession with organic by not only do I love the products and they are one of the best superfood companies on the planet. There Greens and chocolate gold are to die for, but they have one of the most incredible company cultures and that's something we jam bit on in this episode is how did drew build one of the most incredible companies to work for like how did he actually do that?

To know druids to love drew guys. So I know you're going to love this conversation and I hope it reminds you of your lights your power enter joy. How would you answer someone? Who says, what do you do in an elevator wild? Got To keep it short. I'm the CEO the chief. Energy Officer. The chief of inspiration and I lived my whole life in moment by moment I'm not I don't operate in time like most people do I very much. Help people awaken to who they really are by just being me unapologetic. The real me that showed up here and I've had a lot of trauma that got me there at a young age as you know, we've talked about this in the past. Yeah. Take us back a little bit to some of that trauma. You don't have to go too in depth i. feel like you are who you are because of that. So we think it's really important to touch on what you experienced in the net, and then how that inspired you to essentially be successful and do something with your life. Yes. So at a very young age and I'm not saying this, let me paint the picture here and set some context or the frame as we call it. I'm not saying this to have anybody feel emotional and I know you have a lot of emotional very heart centric sentient beings listening to this I'm not. I'm not telling the story for that I'm telling it to hopefully uplift and inspire people to. Deal with whatever happened in their past and let it go move on. Right. So for me at a very young age I, was physically tortured and abused by couldn't tie my shoes fast enough. My Dad would put cigarettes out on my forehead. He'd hold my head underneath the water in the bathtub. Is Awful no man should ever do that to a son. And at the time, it was wrote about in the papers. Cadillac Michigan is one of the worst events in child abuse ever, and this was in the eighties. And a lot of people were abused lot of children. You Know Precious Child Children of God. Were abused and it's unfortunate but the lessons that I learned I had a very young age to forgive. I became a really. Very empathic, very heart Senate at a young age 'cause I just saw the pain in my dad's life and I knew that I wasn't the cause of it. I know it was deeper issues that he had that he was dealing with and I discovered this in a lucid dream when I was five years old. I went into the Dreamland and I woke up. Finally after three months of seeing this monster in dream time attack me every night and I as a kid, I'd wet the bed and I would wake up and be like. All right freaked out nightmares, right And then one night I realized that I was dreaming. And I looked at the monster I, said, you're not real. And he shrunk in my arms. And I knew internally every cell in my body that monster and my dream was my dad and reality. And I came out of that the next day and I saw my dad through a different perception which ultimately created different reality. And he shifted and he started to change around me enough. So that gave my sister and opportunities to exit that situation. So she escaped and we she was able to go to a neighbor and they took us away and we got adopted by the most beautiful loving amazing family. Huge hearts I like to call him emotional billionaires because they have hearts of gold. But they were broke I saw my old man lose seven jobs growing up. My mom had three. She was a janitor. My Dad was a truck driver. So nowhere in my life were the subconscious memories. in this world of remembering what it was like to be rich or abundant. So I had a lot to work through I. Actually there's like levels and layers of this, right so the first one was forgiveness you have to forgive because anytime you don't just holding stagnant energy in your body you're manifesting it in reality back and forth until big UNI, I like to call her the universe. SHOWS UP AND You know control out deletes the situation. So forgiveness is key. Next level is thinking the person for the experience and actually having gratitude for it. 'cause gratitude the present day currency that pays for future abundance. So, having gratitude now for all those lessons and all those what we would call memories. Because when we lived truly in the present moment, nothing has really happened in the past. So nothing can ping you if you're in the present moment or what we would call the fourth dimension. Right and then the next level is and this is a total mind blow. This is where the Wu lights go off on your podcast. But it wasn't a man that did it to me it was the me that did it to myself. So I and my father. My biological father are one and we're connected. Right. So it's A. Did to myself and why would I do it? Why would I do it? What do you think? I think that contrast is necessary for happiness sometimes and I think that you needed to go through pain in order to become apathetic deeply pathetic not just all I care about people. But if you're listening to this and you've gone through any sort of pain I, believe that you really know what it means to help people into give back at a level that someone who maybe has never experienced any pain or trauma might never understand traumas a necessary evil in order to actually help people I don't know the only answer I can think of because it's such a rate. It's such a big answer. Why do bad things happen to good people? I love how you said it. It's the pain that gave me the empathetic ability to really help other people heal and if I hadn't gone through that, then I never would have it. TRAUMAS. Fuel. Right it's energy it's hidden in your subconscious, which is your body and through the chemical. And physical action in motion. Trauma releases itself and it gives you great amounts of energy. So hidden pockets in your body open up and energy just comes to you. So your drive your work ethic your skill set your ability your willpower to get things done. I got a lot of that from just bottling up all that trauma from the past. It's a beautiful thing I want to go back to the first few years of organic by a lot of women listening are entrepreneurs and they're super inspired by you. I don't know if you've ever really taken a moment to understand what you've created. It's obsolete incredible. Not only if you create this massive multimillion dollar DC brand, but you've created a culture that people this is how I would explain it because I'm friends or no people who work at our Gadaffi album being partnered with the company for a while people don't just want to work at your company they love working at your company what really happened. Tell us what really happened. You really want to know what really raising yeah. Drew's like one of my best friends but I still always wonder like what really happened even if this offense path that people and they get off your podcast Oh shit I am never listening to Angeles podcast again, do you really want to know what it is they're going to take the organic throw it in their garbage. You really. Yeah. Yeah. Let's be real. Is Them. All right. So I'm GonNa tell you bit by bit as much as I can recall. And I'm going to look at it from a perspective outside the vehicle that we called drew and I'm also going to look at it very much so within. So first and foremost it was getting congruent in who I am so. The mission that I have in my heart and what I wanted to create in this life and I knew it took my morning rituals I knew it took getting quiet in my own mind and getting this. Peaceful. Serene. State. Of Oneness of joy of wonder of radical all. In my life every day in the morning and charging my own batteries. Because I had I can only give from a full cup. So every day I was charging my batteries. I was reading the books that I needed to have embodied memories. No wing later down the road. So I've read thousands of books, right? Nine years I've been doing this. I started fit like TV. And every day I would focus in the morning of raising my vibrational frequency. What can I do? So there's a few things that do that for me number one, I love music a music junkie. There's probably thirty two instruments sitting around us right now we got the guitar the flu loves. Bikes, there's like the pianos over there. Every time I made. Like? Everywhere what? I didn't know where there's a good. And so the body what I've discovered is actually the body's instrument. and. We have eight or nine different energy fields that are attached to our three D. body. And many of them can be tuned to instruments can be tuned to different types of music affirmations, different thoughts, different You know by Neuro Try Merle Beats, these things, and it was just tuning my frequency as beating the drum I was becoming a better vibration of myself. And I would work out every day so I would pour energy into me. And my occur Andrea. Loved it. which would give me the energy to work longer in the gym and work longer during the day as well. So. About Health and fitness was congruent in my life I. So if you're running nail beauty, you know website online in your nails are all Jank and you don't take care of them like you're out of. congruency already right like you have to be congruent with your message and your mission. The universe knows. For me if I chase money money runs away from me but if I chased change physical change in the manifestation of transformation than money comes to me. So the only thing that I have to do is focus in these individual moments one person at a time. and. One of my mentors taught me long ago. He said through I want you to remember today is a good day to die. And I'll never forget the day that he said that. And now every person I talked to I look at them as if it's the first time in the last time I will ever talk to them again. And it just changes the way you feel it opens up your heart and people feel that Shit. It's real. It would be described I. Think people have described meeting me like dude, it was intense. Like I felt like there was nothing else going on in the room we were in our own vortex. And everybody has that it's not because I'm special or anything else we all have that ability but it takes you tuning your own instrument in beating the owned vibrational drum of your own heart to step into that. So the morning was the big thing and then Finding people that were fit energetically I didn't care what skillset they. Right. So you want one of the greatest places to work in the country. We've been two years in a row you have to find people that you love hanging out with outside of work. And then inside of work just becomes the naturally occurring thing of what would happen outside. Random. Dance parties, biohacking gear all over the office taking exotic trips together. Playing, Ping Pong and having tournaments and Karaoke in the office and Weird Shaman people coming in all the time and blessing the space and you know so it just becomes an extension of who you are everything starts with you. Your Business is a reflection of you. I don't even have to meet you. I can walk into Your Business and I can tell you who you are. So, it becomes a reflection of who you are. Your tribe is reflection of you. So, would I do this to myself? Would I pay myself this what I treat myself this way. And when you live like that in your business, amazing things open up people go to the end of the Earth for you. One of my guys his girlfriend broke up with him he had to move out of the house. I volunteered my whole day to go help move right that's not a normal founder of a business to do. He's not part of the sea level team. There's no extra. Seniority or anything like that. It was just something that we do for the people that we love and having one hundred people in the team. Now, every single one of those are my family. You what has been the hardest part of building organic because you obviously have pushed through a lot of things and the woman listening to this is probably like, wow, this sounds way too good to be true like when have you been like this Kinda? Sucks I don't WanNA manage all this. I don't want to run this Oh my God, we're losing money like win were there moments and there always will be these moments where you're just like this is a lot to take on so. It was a lot of hard work, right? If, we want to go down the hustle and grind rabbit hole. We can all day long like sixteen hour days in the beginning for years I have a life, right? No relationships I my ass off at eight people working out of my condo for a while. Right? There was ups and downs. Yeah. They came over every day we were getting. On facebook, we are selling digital courses and products. Before we launch our anti, we're doing millions of dollars a year digital sales get sixteen million hits a month on our website. Organically. Right organically, that's crazy at a point zero, two percent conversion rate we were making millions of dollars. Selling a ninety seven dollars course and a thirty seven dollar membership site. Eight Hundred Square foot condo and my little poodle kitchen over here and the gas lamp district. San Diego. And we're having a blast. It was so fun. Right had eight employees they would work in my condo it was offline and then facebook algorithm switched. And then month after month lost twenty, thousand dollars lost fifty thousand dollars lost fifty thousand dollars again, nine months later lost over half a million dollars. About to go out of business, right? That's when we've already let couple people go people that were close to us when you're that small everybody's family. And I I remember sitting at a table, the vitality juice tap I remember like it was yesterday. We all got together. and. We all went around the table. And we said what we loved about working with everybody at the table. And we got grateful for just being part of this mission part of this cause for what we've created and at the same time two weeks before that, we had placed our first purchase order for three thousand units exchangers. So we're sitting there getting. Grateful. And something about that time I just felt the energy shift. It was all as well. In all everything is well always and I'm gonNA walk you through that and a little bit. But sitting there energy changed two weeks later. About ready to go out of business. We're praying that this thing works Hail Mary Field Goal Kick when the game like we gotta figure this out. And I, remember it like it was yesterday. David Lupita who still on the team Jamal CEO. Sitting in my living room. and. Tiny little living room they both had these stand up desks right? There's like no space at all. and. At the first hour, we got our first sale like okay. Well, got her sale. We know that there's people that are interested. We got one. Let's keep. Focusing meditating. An hour later we sold it thousand bucks. We sent out another email. and. We sold out of three thousand units within the first three days. So, and then we sold out five times. So we did one hundred, fifty, thousand dollars in revenue. In the first like three days, which was four times more than our monthly average up to that point. And then we sold out five more times replacing placing purchase orders over one hundred, thousand units, a piece bailing out the well we focused on one product for a year that was a big thing for us. Just one skew focused on that tested a thousand different split test headlines copy like we were we were running. Lean. So. Exchange the whole entire business but there was the darkest hour they're really there always is and you have these darkest hour moments but it's just realizing that what we think is real is really just the illusion. It's the Matrix so my team is trained and I've trained them in this like a frigging. Hornet, right like I actually I come down on people. Not Hard but in a loving interrupt way of watching language I believe in Abracadabra what I say what I speak is created. So that, you'll never hear me say this was too hard. You know I'm I'm feeling beat up at organic fire, right? So They know that. Everything is great in its continuously getting easier is getting better more and more people are opening up to the possibility of what nutrition can do for them. And we're making it convenient for everybody in the world and. there's no product like it organic. We have the finest ingredients we've done. There's clinical trials on select ingredients that are in our stuff like the crack that's inside of the chocolate. Yeah. Yeah just get a crack that's in their. Dictate to go one day. I can't you know I just want to in my veins like an IV can we put it in? What do you think would happen if you? Go there you're. I don't do that. So the most difficult parts were obviously in the beginning the beginning always sucks a little bit. It's like unnecessary suck to get to success. There there is. But for me what I knew right away is that anything that sucked I was already looking for my way out of it. Because what sucks for me doesn't suck for everyone else. Right like data acceler spreadsheets, there's people that would roll around in excel spreadsheets and love it like. Like what's the old cartoon Duck Tales on the guy sliding down this sliding down excel spreadsheets. Type having so much fun. If people break in the sheets? Yeah and for me no no. No creativity speaking like you were promoters like inspiring people guiding energy. And anything outside of that it's like I'm going to find somebody to do the stuff that I don't like to do. You're such a good delegator. That's definitely one of your strange is you delegate what isn't in yours on a genius and I think more people need two more women especially because where people pleasers were nervous to do this, but everybody needs to get better at this in order to become uber successful, you have to learn to delegate. Yes. In the easiest way to delegate is just a paint such a huge vision for the company where they're headed real vision, right? And then a vision for the other person. So they say there's five love languages I believe there's actually eight in the eighth love language is actually talking to the person's future self is if it's already sitting there with you right now. So when you bring that person in and I say Angie I'm blown away that your TV shows bigger than Oprah's that you have spoken on stages with twenty five, thirty, thousand people like three books you wrote it's absolutely incredible. It's real. Right like I feel that in my soul. And when you have that I, think. Lights people up like it gets going. and. They live into it. It's not I'm not micromanaging anybody. I'm just painting such a big pitcher for them. That's real that they can grow into. Right yeah I think that's the big thing. I think this will be helpful for other visionaries listening but I think how you've been so helpful for me not just as a friend but as someone I'm obviously inspired by is I have this belief that being a visionary is almost not enough going through bouts of that where it's like really this is what I'm doing now. Because you wake up and everything that you've ever dreamed of is now your reality. So you've closed the time line, you know you went from visualizing a dream and your wish room of wishful thinking that we would call the mind in your prefrontal cortex and now all of a sudden you're living the dream. And you wake up and you feel like an impostor. So. All you have to remember is that dream is just one room of the big dream. And the big dream is your sacred dream and the sacred dream. Is in the invisible worlds, right. It's what connects every living being on this planet, every life or more swimming in a sea of luminous love and that sacred dream connecting to that. You could show up for one minute in your company and provide more value than years worth of somebody that was doing because of your ways of being. and. Being carries such a higher vibrational frequency than a doer. And all you need to do just be be more Angie Lee your energies contagious. It's infectious. You have a fifth dimensional laugh. It immediately pulls people out of three D you carry the big dream in the pitcher and you beat the vibrational drum of owning that place and people will come to your business like a magnet because everybody wants to be around that people want to be given permission. Right, so it's your mission to give them permission. So let's bring it back down to brass tacks. So here's what we did in. This is super super powerful. I'm not trying this little bit. and. So. It's real easy to do this number one when somebody comes in I've hired more people just by reading their name. And feeling it in my gut, right intuition 'cause you know the body knows you could energy test it you can talk to any energy medicine person and they just they feel it immediately do it enough all of a sudden you know. real world things you can do number one. Culture screen in your company. So think of that as a separate interview that's the first interview. I. Want to know that. I could hang out with this person outside of work. We're GONNA work, one third of our life we WANNA. Make sure the people around us. We'd actually have fun with or not boring they're not site goes or not serial killers. Culture. Screen. Yeah next up I like to test them and we do kind of an arduous testing process but it really solidifies who the person is and what their skills are for the job number one. Colby Ko L. B. E., B. I believe it is. So we're looking for as an integrator somebody who has a massive fall through 'cause you're through shit engine. Let's be honest. I couldn't I couldn't work there. And depending on the position like if it's a writer somebody who's coming up with copy for. You probably want somebody WHO's a high researcher to because you WanNa make sure that dialing in the if you can make some claims or whatever they're dialing madden. So Colby test. Second to that, we do Myers Briggs as well just to see where they fall on the extrovert introvert. And then we're looking at the center just test. So Center gist I believe it's senator just dot com something like that. We're seeing how well they work with people because if I'm going to put them in a pod as we have individual pods on the organizational chart of you know now over one hundred people, we wanna make sure that. There in the right seat. And it's finding the people to run all this for you that are even more brilliant than you are. So Lisa Shields, my hr manager, she's a Rockstar. She just has such a huge heart. She sees people she so charismatic, she does a ten times better job than I ever could not position May as well. Our COO right. She just gets people. She's so good at having those difficult conversations and can guide people into the next evolution of who they are. So surrounding yourself with those people. And Once you have the testing you've looked at that then they come for another interview of. Skill assessment. So. What I like to do and it's real weird. I asked the weirdest questions right So depending on the position I would do a group interview because time is money so I'd have five to eight people interviewing for the same job. Scam blow you away you ready for this. Is I ask them at the end of the inner interview benefit of Inigo is who they would hire. In Ninety eight percent of the time. They all pick the same person and it's not even then. It's not themselves. So I know based on social proof in the moment who is carrying the most power with them in relation to the job that American for. Yeah, that's powerful. So if I'm not there I already know who it is like I could walk into a room and tell you is going to be hired who? Without, even sitting in the interview. But to the untrained initiate, the person that's sitting there. That's one of the greatest questions you can ask. No one another one of my favorite questions in an interview processes if you could do one dance move for the rest of your life, what would it be? I just always loved the responses at that. So, there's that as well. You get the right person, and then it's all about culture. It's indoctrination sequence. So we spent three days indoctrinating them. This is constantly evolving. So we started at five days. Realize that was a little too much back to down to three, but they're going through a video sequence to watch. Videos they're going through my process of evolution what we've created with organic by so they really feel the brand. Many of them are actually hired from watching Youtube or in your case listening to the podcast. So you have the big ambassador that's not working for you. It's getting to know the person and I would argue that when you silence your mind. And you open up your heart and you enter this base of these other souls that are sitting there wanting to work. With in your mission that there's going to be For lack of better words almost like an ancient remembering more it's like that's the person. It's been a long time, my brother and my sister, and now you're back and here we are again. Yeah neck a continuation of changing this planet. Right. I love this juicy. I want to chat about money. Ma Money. Guys told drew and I came over. I was like I lost a crapload of money recently and you know what he said to me. He was like this is like a few months ago when I was over, you were like Oh you just pay the tuition for life. Like. It's okay. You know and I think it is it is hard sometimes when we're investing. Gosh, maybe you guys want a company, you have a coaching business you invested a lot in a coach maybe you're starting to TC line whatever it may be is release gary to play with money and to move that energy because most of us are engrained come from a place of so much scarcity and when you're an entrepreneur, your relationship with money is so important because you're risking all of the time you're playing with it you're throwing at, you may not see it again, but then you it's just it's a lie. So by the end of this money is going to be your best friend. Best friend cannot just a friend of best. Every dollar bill, every hundred dollar bill you ever see again is going to be talking to you and you're going to see the little head on it. And they're going to be like anti just want. A. Back. Real quick you ask me all the time and what products do you love for getting rid of Scroll Brain Syndrome and getting focused on my friend I have the answers for you because I've been dealing with add since I was a little girl. So I've got you I. AM basically a Guinea pig when it comes to testing all supplements that help with focus and productivity, and you know if you watch my stories that I geek out on the tropics. ATRO- big is essentially a natural brain booster so Here my to absolute favorite intro picks that you've got to try dude I've tried over a hundred nutro picks. Okay. These work I actually do both of these before I started recording this and I'm feeling good I'm feeling very good. Okay. Number one is be lecture brain fuel. I've been loyal to this little vile for over three years if you're having trouble concentrating and getting your work done be licks or is your bff, it's a natural productivity shot that supports clear thinking it has no caffeine. No Jitters No. Crash. No sugar and I take one full vile every single morning or at least every single time before he speak teach or record podcast. So four to five times a week. So to snag some Elixir had to beekeepers naturals dot com slash Angie Lee beekeepers naturals, dot com slash. Angie. Lee You've got to get the Elixir Brain fuel it is a game changer number two my newest obsession are these brain balls okay. Well, I call them brain balls but the name is Nirvana N. Y. R.. V. A. N.. A.. And that name is very appropriate because these brain balls tastes like just sexy time in your mouth just chocolate -I sexy time the most delicious chocolate you've ever had. Oh, my goodness the peanut butter ones are my Kryptonite they. They had three the other day and I was in the zone I was in the Matrix as so they figured out how to put brain, boos. Dina Tropics inside of delicious sugar free chocolate. So check these both at beekeepers naturals dot com slash, Angie Lee and Nirvana Dot Com. Your brain is GonNa. Love you are eight. Let's dive back in. You know what's interesting though is used to look at it like it was a loss like it was something that I was trying to get. Money is not mind to own. I am not the possessor of possessions. Never. See. U-HAUL. Truck behind a hearse. Right. Like I'm only here for temporary moment in time and the money that I have I'm the steward of it. So I can never lose it first of all, and that's part of my identity. That's part of what I believe now was it like that long ago hail? No, right. I've lost like back in the day hundreds of thousands probably millions of dollars. Different. Things that didn't work out. And that's okay. Because money is I like to say if you break it down M. O. N. E. Y. is my own natural energy yield. So can Angie Lee ever lose her own natural energy? Yeah. What is your natural energy? Yeah. Your essence or spirit love right. The invisible and there's an infinitum of that within you and with all around you. So there's nothing that can never be taken away from you. And it's our job as stewards to manage the emotions around it. So as soon as you start going off the deep end and playing those loops. Call Him and rabbits down the hole, and then the rabbits multiply I lost this Oh my God. How dare this person? I can't believe this lawsuit. All these things they come up in our mind and it shifts are emotion, and then we start to as Esther Hicks would say we to row upstream. Against the current. and. Mother Nature's beautiful because all we get to do is realizing that moment to change the feeling of anger and sad and disappointed and resentment and fear and scarcity into joy into love and peace into serenity into optimism into life is fantastic. There's so much abundance here, and when we start to feel that in our body, the words that we say is starts to change the resonance. Money's attracted to a frequency. It's not attracted to doing money is a way of being. So the more eye attune, this antenna human beings are all giant antennas I'm convinced the more I radiate love joy peace. The more I make others have fun like together like fun is one of my highest values and it's yours as well because we're like little five year old Jovan. Everywhere we go. The more fun. You can hang out with us. Embarrass you. Yeah. We love embarrassing people. and. The more fun. We have the more money. Is Made. It's weird how that works. Money Fund is like a magnet for money. So how much how much good can handle today is a question that asked myself. How can I live in the moment? How much fun can I am part on other people? How much can I wake people up to their true essence? And that's what I'm gauging I'm not gauging. Revenue and profits I'm not even looking at it. Right. I'm not even paying attention to that. What I'm paying attention to is how much fun? How much ease joy how much piece? How much connection? How much sacred oneness how much alignment can I feel in the day and the rest is shows up. So there's nothing to ever lose. And those moments when we lose fifty eighty, grand one, hundred, million dollars whatever it is. It's so vitally fundamentally important to become aligned with who you really are. And realize that that was just an investment in the school of life. Right and to get excited about it. This. Amazing. This I lost. Eighty fifty thousand dollars. That's so cool. Like most people in the world have fifteen dollars in the bank. Like you are considered rich if you have over fifteen dollars in the bank, we live in such excess. So if you look at the sacred economics of what money really is, money is a way of saying. Thank you. So. If you have a lot of money, a lot of people have been thanking you. For an idea for a gift that you brought forth in the world. And you have a gift inside of you. You have something. So deeply inspiring that you should treasure that will materialize wealth in the earth plane. Making money. Easy. The hard part is having enough personal power to manage at once you get it. Because money will destroy people. It's so funny because we take it so serious. But the three D. is so small. It's a limited perception of who we really are as multidimensional beings. This three. D., physical reality is. It's it's it's so laughable. Right yeah. How simple and silly it is and how serious we take ourselves the serious business you've been running serious relationship you're in. It's laughable. The. Money is just an expanded. It's an accelerator of who you naturally are. So, more love more light or joy. You can do things for others to one of my favorite things to do. Right. You can enrich their life. You can make their life better. You can show minutes. It's easy. Money does not exist to stay stuck or stagnant because D- energy energy is always moving. And the more you can put out the more that comes back to you. So the more I can give. The more is going to come back in my life. And my goal is to give as much as I humanly can in this life how much can I give? How can I get more? So. I used to be worried about it constricted hold it plays an account. Not Think about doing anything with it. and. The the older I get. I think the the more free money flows and. It's just the process of not taking yourself so serious. And believing in your future. So creating more narrow synapses or more neural pathways because right now, if we were to take an image of your brain when it relates to money, right, we would see maybe a small dirt road as an example. Of Your freedom around it. And the more you practice putting money out there for pace to be brave putting money out there for maybe soul CBD. inadvertently selling all your stuff by the way I. WanNa Commission. I. Thank. The more you practice the release, the greater the road. So you're laying down payment, and then it's a little road in the city in the novice. Fan Yep mega highway. And when you get to that place where There are no more roads. It's just an airport and there's these huge jumbo jets flying around because you've done the work. You realize that. It was as simple as trusting in yourself. I, think a lot of its trust. Trusting that you're GonNa make the right decision. You don't need role models. You don't need parents that were good with money anything like that I'm living proof of that. You just get to be unapologetically yourself and trust that the universe has your back there so much abundant everywhere you look out the window radio there's thousands of trees, billions of blades of grass in the physical world that's not even the in the unseen, which is ninety, nine percent of all light. You see around us we were literally swimming sea of luminous beings, but we can't see it some of us can. But Yeah. Tapping into that. There's so much richness. There's so much abundance. And it's all around us. Always. So the more you see that the more it shows up in your life, you're not disconnected from it. You are it and it's not happening outside of you it's happening within you. I think that's the big thing that people mistake I have to do something externally to get something externally. No did something within and watch how it shows up in your life. The veil is getting smaller and smaller. These higher galactic frequencies are entering our earth at an unprecedented rate. Things are changing aliens are coming. I have one in front of me right now. I have the biggest daily never ever seen area there'd be one. Duty. ME. Drew's overcoming goes I just found out about area fifty one of you months ago and I'm like, how did I know about this? That's my hometown. You showed up on a starship. No Right. Sometimes I'm like I just go back home. This is too much. So, energy I WANNA know I wanNA close it with you are like the biohacking master I mean we're at your house right now there are a lot of weird as gadgets and maybe the women listening can't buy all of these gadgets and all of these things. But what are a few simple things that you do to stay energized and to stay healthy because I think energy is everything people ask me all the time. How do you get so much done how do you do what you do and I think it's just one word it's energy. SAS with being the most energized person I can be because then I can pour that in other people and then I, can get a ton of stuff done. So in order to answer this question, we have to understand the fundamentals of what the human body is. Right it's a conductor, it's battery. It's an electrical organism and it's primarily water right? Where cucumbers cucumbers, jank cucumbers, people. So how do we change the electromagnetic state of the body by manipulating the field number one? It's our thoughts. If you're tired all the time, it's probably because you're not plugged into your purpose. What is the thing that lights your soul on fire, and if you're doing something outside of that, it's draining your battery faster than your battery would be charged if you're doing something that you absolutely love mother treats out. In the street hugging thousands of children every day she was never tired because she was plugged into what her highest calling was. Right you don't have to have one purpose. You just have to do something that light your soul on fire and eventually they'll build up into something. So massive, you're gonNA. Pinch yourself in the future plug into that energetic source second to that realizing that source runs through you it's not separate. So I get my energy from that, I'm not getting my energy from other people from nutrients even though I love organic superfoods but really my energy comes from something in the invisible world. That's far beyond anything that we can even see in this realm and I feel that I connect to by breathing. Right as would say, breath is super powerful. We want oxygen rich bodies. We can do that by running doing sprints moving mighty Andrea, rebounding IVA, belly CON rebounder out here small investment jumping on this thing, cleanse the lymphatic system, get your blood circulating, get your body moving. Water you really good water structured water I've life is our machine here. That is absolutely incredible filters it all out sends a blue light through a red light mineralized alkalis hydrolysis it. I'm talking the best water on the planet then I put it in a vortex machine in China Juve light through it right then. Water water obsessed sometimes I put a cobalt blue glass and I said it out in the moon and charge my water with Moon Raise K I'm one of those guys smelled like Julian whole foods. So. For sure. There's water there's moon water their son water drinking out of copper actually mineralized cools the body a little bit as well. We're we're copper deficient. So next up, I would do a blood panel and I would test micronutrients I would see micronutrients missing my body what enzymes do a stool test because I want to understand what bacteria and my gut wants everything test poop tests. You want your poop to be shaped like an s anything outside of that know something's wrong with. Yes. Oh micronutrients. self-testing is actually huge I. do it every ninety days I'm looking at my blood. I'm looking at my micronutrients I'm making sure that I'm in alignment there. Those are the basics right to this water voltage lightbody that sitting in front of right now. Other things that help with that don't cost anything meditation sitting quiet quieting your mind. If you have an apple watch great whoop ban cool testing your hr V. Understanding what your HR V. is. It's your ability to go to into para sympathetic nervous system. That's when your autonomic nervous system. autonomous. Yet, nervous system kicks on and your body heals. If you're a stress magnet and you're going into work grinding every single day and you're coming home and you're crying and your you know rubbing your cat at night and you're sad. You're body's. Like rubbing your cat lady like a Cat Lady, your Gatland your. I love cats actually got to put your body in the sympathetic nervous system on. So breathing meditating. Sleeping is. For Energy. So chilly pad is one of my favorite things small investment fifty, five degrees I've increased my deep sleep by forty five minutes with that thing. I also jumping my plunge before bed. It's forty degrees sitting there for three minutes. Knock you out? Could they do this and their shower cold shower freezing cold sharp stick your head in a vise if you want to the water like Novi Bio hacks. Less than ten dollars, you can buy Hackett stick your head in a tub of ice. Thing you can do as well for energy, but it's all about my Andrea if you want to take it to the next level and you got Angie Lee money, then you WanNa do an. issue. I've been doing an ID. And A. Once a week for the past three months it's changed my life. Brain is on fire. Next level. I did three days in a row and then I did every week. So four hundred Mil and a five hundred bag over your live natural. And it changed my energy. I ran a five minute mile who am I? Like this guy right here look at me. We're his physical me I don't even. You guys drew launching a podcast called beyond the meat suit. Well Angie wants me to name it that often.

PG Thirteen Cheryl okay. Don't ask me to send pictures of my bubis all okay so I love you guys. Let's dive into this episode and as always if you dig it if you love it tagme in Instagram Graham say hi to me. I love getting to know you and I love knowing what episodes you love so tag me. Stay with us and let's episode. Hi Andy Hannah question about whether whether or not you believe I m taking too much on all at once or how I can find out for myself what my limits are so here's the scenario I do work. A Technical Engle nine to five job Monday through Friday and that is my main source of income. I also have started within the past few months a business with my mother so far we haven't charged anything anything we're in the very beginning stages and we are specializing in helping women with chronic illness such as diabetes. PCs enemy tros reduce their symptoms through a plant based Diet so there's that but I also have been a beach body coach a pretty inactive one for lack of a better term just not found my niche. I guess you could say until recently so I do that as well because I love the idea of the residual income that it can offer later on and then also looking at starting a podcast in regards to the enemy trio called Endo sisters girlfriend of mine and I just feel like I don't know if I'm taking on too much or if I should go with my gut and just hustle as hard as I possibly we can or take time to really become a pro at one thing at a time. So what are your thoughts sister friend. I think that we are sisters from another. Mr And you are also so a seven on the let me know. DM ME later created. Let me know if you are a seven on the ground because one of our superpowers is creativity but one of our weaknesses is having Shiny Object Syndrome and sometimes wanting to do six things at once so I absolutely agree that especially because you have this fulltime job rob the podcast. You want to start coaching with your mom. You Have Beach Body. I think it's going to become a hot mess express if you don't give your attention to one thing at a time and making sure that each thing is given the love and growth that it needs it and the attention that it needs. I believe that a lot of people have this Squirrel Syndrome where they don't actually follow through on the first I project that they started so no season. You're in right now right. Maybe you are in the season of really growing this podcast which is ultimately going to drive more traffic to the coaching business assist with your mom with chronic illness. It's going to drive traffic to beach body. which is your residual income? It's going to help any future projects. Do It's going to help to really build your personal brand which is ultimately going to drive traffic to any other physical or digital products that you have right and again. I totally feel you on this because I have alleged event. I- physical products so cbd I have digital title courses in products. I kind of have all of these different things that I do and honestly I didn't do them all at once and I didn't do them overnight. I mastered the podcast and waited until that was is somewhat self sustaining or had help with it until I added something else on for example I mastered podcasting and then I launched digital courses and then after remastered digital courses I launched a live event and then I brought in a physical product with my brother and now we own a physical product line so everything has really come in seasons and I I started with the foundation of a podcast and I really wanted to master that and give that the love and attention it needs and deserves to really grow because what you focus on expands right so if you're trying to build six different different things at once. It's going to be a shit show and nothing's really ever going to be incredible. Everything's Kinda going to be half ass instead of going full ass on one thing at a time so yes you can and do it all. I just wouldn't try to do it all at once. I felt like a failure when I tried to start six things at once because I never could find success in one thing and then I always felt like I was behind and it's it's just this huge mess so my best advice for Ukraine and the woman listening to this is to make sure that your current project or business is one self sustaining or two you have helped with it before or you add on a second project so once I saw that my podcast was growing and it was self sustaining and it was successful and it was doing well then. I felt comfortable bringing on another project project number two I asked myself. Can I get help with this thing. We can do it all but I think it takes a team right. So it sounds like you might need a virtual assistant soon to help you keep a lot of these pieces in play and to help keep this all organized over the podcast. Once I had an editor and once they had a team helping me out with it then I felt more comfortable bringing on other projects and and last but not least I would ask yourself. How can these projects actually complement each other. How can they integrate well together right. A podcast actually helps your coaching business. A podcast can actually help your impeach body business as well so I actually think the smartest thing you can do is to start the podcast into really build that personal brand and that credibility and trust in that audience and comes to launching things and having seasons to your business. I really think it's important to ask ourselves. Which one should I give love to. I which one should I really focus on first and become the expert in and to be honest in your situation I think hip probably as smart as to give your love and your attention and your focus to the podcast you can grow that show and grow that audience and then you're slowly bringing in the coaching business on chronic illness and you're promoting Modine your network marketing but your podcast is kind of your foundation. It's your home base. It's really where you are building the audience and building the trust so then from there you can do a bunch of other things right and that's honestly honestly how I do it. My podcast is my home base where he hang out with you guys the most and were you guys get to know me the most in where I give a ton of value and from there I've launched gosh all these different things physical basical digital live. I've done all of these different projects now so I think you should launch the podcast first and then from the podcast you can promote all of these other products and services and I agree with you sister Mr. I think if you try to do it all at once. Nothing is really going to grow because nothing is getting the attention it deserves needs so focused on one thing become the expert expert at one thing and then eventually you can do all the things but business has seasons and. I don't think that were meant to do it all overnight or do it all at once. Take take things one at a time and I'm excited to hear how it goes for you. Hi Angie I have been listening to your podcast for a few months now and it just clicked today. When I was is listening to your Newark podcast you again mentioned how you used to get on the call with all your clients or potential clients in kind of use it as there's an interview process or your own market research. I was like holy cow. I have been doing that. The past two months in my new program has generated twenty K. with no strategy because I just had you in the back of my mind to do that and it just today that how happened him. I JUST WANNA say. Thank you so much. Katy congrats twenty. K. is amazing. I am so excited for you and for you ladies listening who are we're like what did Katie do. I made no tell me all of the sacred okay so what Katie is referring to is using your sales calls as market research and making making sure that you are taking notes while you're on sales calls to listen to the pain points of the potential customer rate so even if you get a no one assails call I don't see it as a loss if you're using zineb thirty minutes or that our to take notes and to learn the specific language of your customer so what I used to do when I was in health coaching I would do all of these sales calls. Oh my Gosh I did hundreds of them and what was really valuable about those sales calls is I would actually take notes on a piece of paper or typing notes while the woman was telling me about her pains and her desires and her goals with her body and her weight and then I would use that specific language in my content and on my sales pages. This is gold you guys you're literally on the phone own with someone who is your ideal client and if they say no well at least you use that our to gain clarity around the desires of your dream customer and to then take that language which that specific language. Let's say you're niches that loss coaching for MOMS and she's saying that Gosh I just wish that I could lose that last ten pounds that I haven't been able to lose since I've had these kids and it's it's just so frustrating and so you're writing down this specific language or literally quoting her and then you reverse engineering that and using it in your content and on your sales pages and using that specific customer language from sales calls in discovery calls on your sales pages is gold you guys. This is gold giving it away to you right now. This is how I created sales pages that converted converted so well and women would say oh my gosh. How do you know what I'm struggling with that. How do you know that's my insecurity about my body. Or how do you know that's how I feel when I'm around food and how do you know and the reason in is because I did hundreds of sales call so then I took that language and I used it on the sales page because I knew that if one woman was struggling with that then hundreds of thousands of women were struggling with that specific issue so get as specific as possible when you are crafting content on I g sales pages in your sales videos and US sales calls as a way to learn more. We're about your customer so my advice is that you start seeing sales calls like discovery calls and you are quoting the language of your customer so then you can go use that on social media and on your sales pages because they promise you when you use the specific language of your customer it converts right and that's what great copy is about. It's about speaking to that dream person and speaking into their desires and their pain points and what keeps them up at night so ask those juicy questions on your sales calls so then you can start to really learn your dream customer the more you can learn about your dream green customer and really get in the head of your customer the easier it is to create content and the easier it is to convert and the easier it is to sell so. I love this tipping you so much. Katy for bringing this up and you guys it works. She made twenty gay it works. It's not rocket science. Yes it takes time but it's really about listening on sales calls and using your sales calls also as market research and turn that into relief juicy sellable content so try it out and Katie. You're if you're like me and you're rocking yoga pants twenty four seven because okay Hashtag comfy Hashtag. It makes your bungalow good then. I'm about to rock your world and save you a lot of money because realize the other day while I was in my closet that I have about about seventy five pairs of Lululemon pants okay that is like a trillion dollars worth of yoga pants and I realized that I needed to find a brand that was cute and fashionable fashionable and trendy and made my but look good but also was affordable and that's when I found Fab I was literally on this mission to find the most adorable and affordable active wear and I found athletics and the founder of Lennox is the gorgeous amazing Kate Hudson and what is so cool about this company and why I have so much respect for for them is that it is for any budget and any body type or what your body sizes. They have something for you. No matter what your budget is they have the main for you and I'm actually rocking a pair of leggings right now that pocket in them which I'm obsessed with because I love having my phone in a pocket when I'm on walks into podcast because they don't WanNa hold my phone. Everything on their site is affordable to leggings twenty dollars the durable if it's so well I love how it fits on the legs and the booty. Oh I just love everything I'm just I'm literally obsessed head to athletics DOT COM Slash Angie Lee super easy phonetics dot com slash Angie Lee grab your leggings. Today the two leggings twenty four bucks can't beat that you can't even beat that at target so again if you're like me and you live in active where all day and you live in Yoga Pants all day then you're going to be absurd assist. I just made your booty and your bank account a lot juicier. You're welcome all right. Let's get back into the episode. WHAT'S UP Angie. This is Kelsey and my question is how do you go about hiring a virtual assistant. I'm at the period in my business right now where I know that there's certain tasks that I'm doing dot can can be outsourced to save me time where you go to hire people what has been your experience with bringing people in creating your team because I'm in that point right now where eh it's time to let myself receive help and get help from other people and stay in focus wheel. I love how you talk about you. Outsource everything in Your Business business to always have that personal connection with instagram and your people in your girls and like I feel the exact same way so I would love to hear your feedback on this. I everything you're doing. I can't wait to see what piece to be brave. I'll talk to you later bye. CALC- what's up what's going on girl. I am so excited to see what brave oh my. Oh goodness you guys. How did that happen. I feel like it was yesterday. I was just thinking about it in planning it and it's been over ten months of planning and so oh my God it's a baby and it's here. It's crazy and if you're listening to this really quick before I answer Chelsea's question. There are two ways to snack a ticket. One pays to be brave dot com go check the site to see if there are any left number two you can dive into the pace to be briefed. Twenty nineteen facebook groups urged pays be brave twenty nineteen on facebook super easy jump into the group. Women are selling tickets trading trading ticket finding roommates meeting up posting videos already making friends. It's crazy. It's one of the coolest things I've seen before an event so dive into the pay's is be brave between nineteen facebook group does Nagy ticket or had. UPC BRAVE DOT COM okay Kelsey. I love this question because nobody got time to do admin stuff okay unless you are a virtual assistant listening to my show majority of you. Women should not be doing the mundane tasks in your business that to be honest with you. Someone else could you for less than you are. Worth the per hour for example if you were a coach listening to this and your hourly rate is two hundred dollars per hour and you're doing a lot of the admin tasks in your business such as e mails or graphics and you're realizing being that there is someone else who can do that more efficiently than you probably faster than you because you're not a graphic designer and you're not an expert managing your email and they could do it for ten to thirty bucks an hour then you're wasting your time right. You're not staying in your zone of genius and if you're new to outsourcing here's a release simple yet. Powerful exercise all right so in the rates are the paper. You have all of the things that only you can do. Only you can be the coach. Only you can be the person taking the sales calls. Only you can be the person on the videos. Only you can do these specific tasks and then on the left side of the paper we have delegates eight and these are the boring mundane things that probably drive you crazy and caused you a ton of anxiety and at the end of the week you're like. Oh my God. Why did I spend ten to twenty hours in my email inbox when I should have actually actually ban on sales calls or I should have been creating content that would attract new customers right so this is really where you have to get on with yourself and say what the cheese balls am I doing. What am I wasting wasting time doing and it kind of hurts your ego a little bit but you have to be honest with yourself and say okay. Where am I wasting time and is there someone else who can do this. UPWARD DOT COM or fiber fiber is spelled F. I D E R R and what's really cool is these are trusted online marketplaces for freelance services and you could literally ask people on their to do anything there is the craziest Shit on there. If you ever just need some giggles creep on fiber and upward but you do need to verify people you guys side note lease interview them. Do as zoom call with them. Do a trial period read with them where they're doing some work for you pro bono to prove themselves or at a lower rate to really prove that they can be on your team so it definitely does them out before you signed any crazy long term contracts or before when you send eight thousand dollars to some random dude in a country that doesn't exist and you just lost all of your money because it does take time you guys you have to find someone who really gets you and who really complements you really well and who isn't the same personality type is you. That's another little side note there. I'm a seven on the Graham. I will not hire sevens. I hire ones. I threes. I hire people who are way more type A. Hey Organiz so I can stay in my creative space right so number one is up work fiber dot com never to referrals obviously from friends or colleagues end a great place where I've also found work in the past is facebook groups. I literally would post in different entrepreneurial facebook groups and say hey who is a virtual assistant. I love to jump on his zoom. Call with you and see if you're a good fit. I have a bunch of work that I need help with so I would definitely post in different female entrepreneur facebook groups and this is such a great way to get references to you could say hey guys who who is the. Va that you've worked with in the past that you love working with or that you trusted. I'm looking for one. You know one. That needs more hours this way. You have a reference so it's more trustworthy right and you actually know that that person Persson does good work and last but not least I asked my try by made an edgy story a few months ago looking for a new. Va and this girl commented who's in this community and now she's one of my new UVA's and she's amazing literally obsessed with her. I love her and it makes me so happy that I'm employees and women who are in my community so that's definitely something that I would do as well especially. If you want to employ any of your followers or your community I think there's nothing cooler than giving back to you guys and I trust you guys more than random strangers on the Internet so I made a post looking for a va and now she's one of the my teams so I would try. All three of those way is I hope this was helpful. Having Your Business Account on instagram set at the business or personal have when that is a personal account and then I have one that separate business account at no if yours is set to personal and what your thoughts are when it's a business rather than a personal page business is not necessarily like my name. My personal account is called like Amber Taylor Rico which is for my freelance makeup artistry. I would love love. I love to answer this question and thank you in advance when you own personal brand. I do think that you don't need to different accounts if that's what you're talking about. Do you need a personal smell where you show your cats and end your grandma and your business and again. It's up to you. If you WANNA personal account for your family and friends that's fine but I'm a huge fan of having one account. If you're a personal Komo brand you or your business right. I don't have a separate personal. Mg Lee Account and then the engine business. It's the same thing right. I mean you guys eat sleep poop and breathed this shit right right. I don't do anything else with my life. I am brands. I don't have a separate personal page and then the business page but if you're talking about do you switch your account to business or do you keep it personal as far as engagements. Here's the real deal. FACEBOOK owns instagram rate. Mark Zuckerberg owns at all he owns facebook owns instagram and they are business. They want to make money so there's a reason why your personal page on facebook seems to have better engagements than your business page. It's because it's a pay to play system so if you are putting money behind ads on facebook of course your business account is going to perform well but if you're not well it just sits there and it doesn't do anything because you're not putting money into the machine right facebook and instagram our businesses. They need to make money and this is why I used to see amazing engagement on my facebook live on my personal page because that's what received the most engagement and the way I see it is here are the pros and cons so the pros to keeping your accounts personal on g and after studying this this is what I've seen and if you keep your account personal does seem to do better for growth and engagement so that's a little hackle tip free ladies listening who are struggling with growth engagement on instagram and you're following is is below ten thousand. I would definitely keep the account personal for awhile until you grow that engagement because instagram doesn't think you're running a business on it so it's not expecting you to put money the into it for it to grow. Does that make sense. It's a pay to play system so the minute that you turn your account into a business account. Instagram says Ou business they must have money so let's have this profile do best when they are pumping money behind it so I've seen that personal accounts can do better on Iga because the algorithm thinks that you're sharing about your cat and your grandma and your uncle Larry write. It doesn't know that you're actually promoting business on there. So the benefit to switching your account to a business account is one you can do the swipe up which is powerful if you are utilizing swipe ups in your business but if you're not using them a lot and you can easily tell people what linked to go to and you don't really need it but if you are an affiliate marketer like me or you are offered by brands than and you do need the swipe up feature. The second benefit is analytics. When you turn your account into a business account on instagram you're able to see all of your which is really really helpful especially. If you are running a business this and you need to start studying your demographic and your audience but for majority of you that are focused on growth. I would switch your account or keep your accounts. Personal accounts do can really focus on the growth oath and the engagements and then later down the road. You can be more focused on studying your analytics and utilizing the swipe up feature so I hope that makes sense. I've tested this a bit and I'm actually going to test it again again. In turn my account back to personal I think just so I can really get some more data on this for you guys but it seems as if when you have a business account on facebook or instagram and when they know you are a a business they expect you to be paying to play so try such in your account too personal for awhile unless you really need the swipe up feature or your back end analytics. Let me know goes because I'm super curious and I think it's something that's we can only control so much. It comes to social media so the best thing we can do is stay curious and be open to testing to release what works and what doesn't. I hope that was helpful talk.

Relief is waiting for you at my soul. Cbd Dot Com. My creative soul has been craving something different and I thought to myself Angie what would make it fun and enjoyable and we'll get you out of this creative funk and immediately on my walk what came to me was I would literally just speak into my iphone and talk to you as if you were my friend on my walk with me. That is what I would do. That is what would be enjoyable and fun and easy so I thought to myself. Why don't I do that? And that's what you're listening to you right now. I pressed record on my iphone. I'm out on a walk. I'm a little out of breath. This is where I've created every single instagram post every single email. Yes if you read my emails. Or You've seen my instagram post. This is where I write. This is where I create. This is where I get the inspiration. I play music. I GONNA walk and as a creative who needs to be in her body to create. It really helps me to be in motion right and this actually helps to stimulate the brain so there is science behind this. But I don't know about you. This is how I create. This is how I am the creative woman that I am. I've realized dish into the shower. This is where I get all of my creative ideas. Ps I may do a shower episode. I'm trying to figure out how that would work with the sound of the water and if my phone is actually waterproof enough but we will see my friends but I thought this is fine. This is different right. Who's creating podcasts? Out ON A walk. This is so fun. And that's actually what today's episode is about is getting out of that creative funk and realizing that sometimes the most powerful question that you can ask yourself is how can I make this fun. How can I make this enjoyable? How can I make this easy if you're listening to this and you're also a creative woman and you're an entrepreneur? You're leader your coach and you're feeling frustrated because you're stuck you're in that slump where nothing's really exciting you. You don't know what to post. You don't know what to say. It's feeling monotonous. This is episode for you. After five years of podcasting I got burnt out. I got really sick of doing the same thing. I'll be fully honest fully transparent. I don't even care anymore. Transparent I am. I got really sick of interviewing the soon people because they wrote a book and I was. Just it just. It just wasn't fun anymore. I'm a seven on the program so you know that's not okay. I love to feel free and I love chasing joy. I love chasing. What is the most enjoyable for me and this question? I'm about to ask you has changed my business over the last ten years. It's literally changed my business which changed my life and it helped me to get unstuck and to get into action. And if you're a creative woman entrepreneur listening to this. That's what you need right now. You just need a little nudge. You just need a new perspective and I also want to note that this is super normal. This is human. And that's why I'm being super vulnerable and sharing with you that I was burnt out and I was bored and I was sick of doing the same thing. And so just a reminder that you're not a robot you are a human and that is super normal to have seasons where you don't feel super creative maybe for you. This is writing your book pressing post on that blog. Post creating your course launching the new product pitching your product showing up on video crafting. The sales page crafting the instagram posts deciding. What you're going to say on your very first podcast episode. Or you're like me and you've been doing it a while but you need a change. No matter what situation you are in. This is the question I want you to ask yourself okay. I'm about to ask you this really juicy question and there is a huge pile of steamy hot dog poop on this rock okay. Let's continue. Today's episode is brought to you by that pile of Shit. Okay any ways. Hey I told you you're on the walk with me now. That's what I would say to you if you were on the walk with me. Dude okay. Here's the question. Here is the question. What would make this fun and enjoyable? What would make this fun to do again? What would make this easier? What would make this easier? And sometimes that is you shifting things up taking something off your plate doing it a different way. Maybe a way that nobody else is doing for example right now. I'm recording this podcast. You're not supposed to record a podcast while you're on a walk. Heavy breathing and the birds are meeting. And you're using your iphone as your microphone. You're not supposed to according to the experts but I am and I have millions of dollars and one of the coolest drives in the world because I show up and because I'm consistent not because I'm perfect. Not Because I have all the answers and that's my message for you today figuring out what you need to do to make the process enjoyable again. Does this mean you need to hire someone? Does this mean that. Maybe you need to shift it up a little bit. I'm ready and radios ally right now and my team figured out that. I'm not the type of creative can sit down for hours on my booty and write all day. That's not how I work. That's not how I'm creative. I am creative when I move. I am creative when I touch and feel and I'm vocal. Does this mean that you need to follow women who are doing the exact same thing as you so you can tap into. What's true for you and what's fun and creative for you. You don't have to say the same things on your video to be successful. You don't need to have your podcast. Sound like mine or Cindy Lou. Who who has a zillion downloads? You don't need your intro to sound the same. You don't need your book cover to look the same. You don't need to write your book in the same way full transparency. This was the fear Gremlin. I have been struggling with. Because as a creative who is kinesthetic and vocal. And I don't do well when I sit all day and I'm stagnant with my body. That's not how I right. That's not how I'm creative. That's not how I feel connected to you so I felt really lost and confused on how I was going to write this friggin book and then I realized when I asked myself this question. What would make it fun and enjoyable and easy when I asked myself that question instead of saying Oh. I can't write a book. I can't write a book because I can't do it. However else is doing it. I realized there was another way. There was another option but if I never would have asked myself this question I would still be standing still and I would be making excuses about why. I can't write a book I have. Add I've had add since. I was a kid. How can I read a book? I don't like to sit still for hours. How can I write a book? I don't work well with word. Docs Excel spreadsheets. How am I going to write a book? Even though my soul was calling for me to write a book for you so I sat in that fear and I sat with those excuses and I said to myself dammit NJ. You're going to find a way to write a book. That is fun enjoyable as easy as possible. And you're going to do it your own way because that is what you have always done. And you don't need to do it help. Rene Brown's doing it. How Seth Godin or how any other amazing author is doing it because this is your life this is your brain and this is your process and that is what I want to remind yourself today. I'm writing my first book. This fall radios ally is launching this fall. I couldn't be more excited to birth this baby into the world and two hander to you. That's literally how it feels but to be fully honest. I was really struggling with. I'm not smart enough to write a book. I'm not smart enough to sit down for hours and hours and hours and write all day. That's not how I work so I guess I can't write a book and that's how I saw everybody else writing their books so because I compared myself to how they were doing it and the one way that I saw it was being done. I thought that was my only option. I didn't do well in school. I had. Add my entire life. I struggled in college. I'm a college dropout. I got cs if I was lucky so for me. I I was finding it. Virtually impossible to sit still as a very active woman. And who like I said I've created every single piece of content on a walk movie in my body so me I felt so stuck. I'm like how am I going to write a book? If that's not actually how I create. This question. Inspired me to hire a team. That is now supporting me. In this process of birding the book into the world but in a way that is fun. And it's creative and it's in the way Angie wants to create the book because as a creative that is the most important thing if consistency is the most important thing you have to find a way to create that makes sense for you if consistency is king than you as a creative and as an entrepreneur have to find the way that you want to create in order to be consistent because you WanNa know what breaks my heart. I believe there are hundreds of thousands of extremely intelligent passionate women who are so capable of their dream but they're sitting on it and they're in paralysis and they're not doing anything because they have not yet tried a different way to create. They have not asked themselves this question in order to get unstuck so my friends. I just asked myself this question today when I was on my call with my book team and really helped me to realize that I'm very kinesthetic and I'm very auditory so I am voicing my book and then putting it into written format and I am organizing the chapters with sticky notes so I can feel I can touch each chapter and I can connect to the book in that way yes. It's a little odd. It's a little different. But that's how I'm burning this book into the world and that's okay and this book is my baby right now. It's something not. I am so nervous yet so excited to birth into the world and I'm really remind myself that I get to have my own process and I get to do it in a way. That feels best for me as a creative. This is the question you need to ask yourself today. What would inspire you to get back into action? What would be fun? What would make it easier? This doesn't mean that they're not difficult times but what would make it easier. Is this hiring someone? Is this changing up your environment. Gosh that has helped me. So many times simply shifting up my office giving a little cleaning up the house and having a new fresh perspective before I create content and remember your process gets to be your process. It can be unique. It can be different. It can be quirky. It can be weird. It can mean that you hired help. It doesn't matter how you were getting the work done. If you're showing up courageously and being consistent consistency is the secret. And I wanted to become one of your superpowers man. This episode was so fun. This was fun for me. I could do this every single morning. I could do this. You know what? Maybe this is what I will do. Let me know send me a DM and if you love hearing the behind the scenes on radios ally and the book process. Let me know that as well. Because I know that before I started writing the book. I was super confused. How authors actually wrote the book. They made it seem like it. Just popped out of there you know and I just want to keep it real with you and to always be super transparent and to be your friend that yes. I may be a few steps ahead but I'm with you. I'm with you on this journey and more than anything. I'm here to remind you that you are intelligent. You are courageous and yours. Ready as you'll ever be we're question for my fellow entrepreneurs who also suffer from SP Squirrel Brain Syndrome. Add if you also have SPF S. Keep listening my friend.

IMPOSTER SYNDROME PART 1. FEAR OF SUCCESS. THE WOMAN WHO SHOWS UP DESERVES TO BE THERE. IT PAYS TO BE BRAVE.

"Today's episode is brought to you by ca job. He you ask me all the time Angie. What platform do you use to run your business and to host your courses? My answer is Cajal by, I've been loyal to job you for the last few years and I can't imagine using anything else for my business. I'm absolutely obsessed. I use ca- job for my website to host all of my digital courses and my Email marketing system. So essentially I use to run my entire business. I know that if you're an online course creator or coach, you're going to love ca- job for hosting your courses. My friends over at ca Javi are hooking you up with thirty days completely free. Yup, thirty days completely free. All you have to do is head to Angie Li ka job dot com to activate your account. And if you've been dying to launch an online course, there is no platform that is this aesthetically beautiful and this easy to use for you as the creator and for your customer. And that means a lot to me to have a platform that's really easy to use because you're. Girl is not techy. All you have to do is head to Angie league job dot com. Activate your free thirty day trial play around with the platform, see how you love it. I'm obsessed. I think you're going to have says, and fun news job is going to be at, pays to be brave next week. Make sure you say Hello to Javi stop at their stations. Say Hello. Ask them any questions. Their team is so cool. They're so nice. They're so helpful. So make sure to say heights. That appears to be brave, and I can't wait for you to fall in love with Kobe. You are never going to feel one hundred percent ready and that's okay. You don't need to feel like you have all the answers to start. If you're waiting for all of the answers in your waiting to collect all of them, you're waiting weights who long and you're staying in what I call information paralysis over analyze ation mode, which is the opposite of messy action and you're getting so in your head about what you need to do versus dropping into your heart and just taking that action and there such a difference right from working from your head and over analyzing shit and then dropping into your heart and just saying, I'm just going to put this out there. I'm just going to get started. I'm going to start that company. I'm going to start that project. I don't know what's going to all happen, but I'm just going to do this starting this CBD line. You know, was really, really scary because we have so much to learn and we still have so much growth ahead of us and that can be really overwhelming. But then I also realized. That we're learning as we go and we're learning as we grow and we are making our mistakes while were in it. And that's the best way for us to learn, and that's okay. And it's it's not supposed to be something that we wait five years till we have all the answers. Because by that time we have more competition and we just created more excuses and we'd, you know, nothing's really gonna happen. So I intentionally started it when we just felt the poll and the passion to really help people into share the gift to CBD with people because I want in everyone's hand, my job is to just keep learning and to keep learning from our mistakes and to just keep going into to embrace that messy action and just keep moving forward. So number one, you're never going to feel a hundred percent ready before you launch a course before you get on live video before you launch your podcast, maybe you're speaking somewhere. Maybe you're reading a book, whatever it is you're doing. Maybe you're in network marketing and you want to grow to the top of an Eric marketing company, your neck. Ever ever going to feel like you have all the answers ever. So that's number one. Keep in mind. I could say a million different ways, but you know what I'm talking about. You're never gonna feel like you have it all. The next thing I keep in mind. Number two is the woman who shows up deserves to be there a few years ago. I used to think that the woman who was the smartest or the prettiest, or the most well connected or has the most followers or has the most money. She's the one who deserves to do it. She's the one who deserves to have it. And what I've really realized is that the woman who's the most today shis and the woman who steps up to the plate and says, here I am. This is what I'm gonna do. That's the woman who deserves to be. There is the woman who is stepping up to the plate. If your taking consistent action and your putting yourself out there and you're raising your hand, you're stepping up to the plate. You're like world here I am. Here's my stuff. It's not perfect, but I'm gonna put my stuff out there. You deserve to do that. You deserve to be there. I have so much mad respect for women who don't have all the credentials. They don't have the perfect resume. They don't have all the answers, but they're putting their shit out there and they're owning it. I love when I see that whether that's a newbie in the online space or that's one of my mastermind students. I love seeing that because they are deciding to be enough. They're deciding to be ready and they're realizing that there are a ton of women who want to do what you do. There is a line of women who want to do what you do or maybe what I do, but they're not taking action. You deserve to be there. You deserve to be there. I feel that that is the deep rooted limiting belief of a lot of women in the online space. Who am I to be teaching this? Who am I to be a health and wellness coach? I just started who am I to be the top of this network marketing company? I just started who the heck am I to be a business coach? I just started. You're just you're trying to quantify it or something. When if you're putting in the work, you're providing value, you're getting people great. Colts you deserve to be there. Congrats way to put in the work way to show up aka if you show up, you deserve to be there girlfriend? Okay. Okay. Next fear is just energy in the body, and what's so cool about energy in our body is that we can actually take that energy and turn it into excitement, executives and excitement are super similar, and you can take that energy and you can channel it into excitement. Isn't that frigging awesome? You can choose a choice. You can choose to take all of that anxious energy of Milanov. Oh my gosh. What are they going to think of me will there suck? Should I do this? You can take that and you can actually channel that into excitement and into I wanna learn more. I want to get better at what I do. You can use it as fuel. And so whenever I would get those feelings of, I'm not enough. I don't know, this sucks. Who's gonna like this, who's going to buy this? Who am I to do this? Who. Right? That's what it feels like in your brain. I one I would take dropper assoc- be d, that's what I would do inserts civil CBD plug right here. But after that, I I would. And we'd sit there and say, okay, this is a lot of energy in your body. Can I use this for? Good. Can I use this energy to help people? Can I use his energy to learn more? Can I use this energy to get better? Can I use this energy for good? That's that's always say to myself, can I use his energy for good because energy's energy just move it around shift it. Okay. So use that use that fear as fuel to keep learning use that fuel as as this motivation to become the best at what you do use that fear as this inspiration to keep learning and become one of the best in your niche. Don't use his don't cake. I'm like, can't even speak today. Don't use it as an excuse to back out. The last two are really juicy. Number one is to get over yourself. That one kind of hurt, right? I know, but I'm I'm taking my own Madison here. Get over your damn self. Your business is not about you your biz. Business is actually not about you at all your coaching business, your entrepreneurial endeavor. If you sell a product that's helping people, it's about the woman that you're serving. It's about the person you're speaking to. It's not about you. It's time to get selfless. When you are in fear and anxiety you were in your head, you're thinking about people not liking you. Is this good enough? Am I enough? And my ready and my late. What's going on, you're in your head. It is selfish to not share your message if you have something to give to people, if you have this amazing gift and you're not sharing it with someone, then that's a disservice to the world. If you're an amazing wellness coach and amazing life coach and amazing leader. If you don't share that you're keeping it inside because of your fear and that self selfish, right. So what I like to do is to really get routed back in my wi- get routed back in my mission, get routed back in who I'm speaking to draw my ego and say to myself, y'all, Angie, it's not about you. It's never about me. It never will be about me and it shouldn't be about me. It's about the woman I'm serving. Can I get an Amen for that? Can I get a hells? Yes, if you're like, whoa. I mean, it's true. It's true. So many times we're in our head, what will my uncle think of what I'm doing on Facebook want will sues in say, if my prices are too high, won't will back ISE if she sees and I'm watching a program that's similar to her like no fucking game. Right? Like what? What the f. that is. So self centered to think that we're so in our head about what we should do that we think people care so much. When one they probably didn't even notice. They probably don't even care. And if you're allowing your uncle Ted to rule your life and make decisions for your life, then you need to have a combo with uncle Ted or unfriendly him bright because you should be more passionate about your mission. Your mission comes before your fears, your mission needs to away your fears, and you need to sit for a moment and really think about the person that you want to help because when you're really connected to who you're speaking to, you don't give a shit. And honestly, this podcast right now that you're listening to you, listen to it, you're the woman that I want to help your the woman that I wanna serve. Do you know how many times I wake up? And I'm like, I don't wanna do this today, or I don't wanna podcast. I'm just not in the mood to cause. I'm a human right machine, and I. Have to. This isn't every single day, but I have to give myself this own this exact pep talk that I'm giving you right now of this isn't about me. This is about you who needed to hear this episode today, and maybe I changed your life right now by listening to this or just changed your day. And that's my gift that I have to give back. So it's this deep, rooted responsibility. It's this, it's this responsibility to give back and it's getting out of my own damn way. It's dropping my shit. It's dropping my ego and being like, yo, this isn't for me. So stopping a butthole and using excuses of why you think this is gonna suck or you're not good enough that shit's that's shits for the birds? No more, right. No more who's with me on that, say yes. Say hails. Yes, it's just it's funny. It's funny any time that I get in my head, I realized that I'm losing touch with who I want to talk to you and and every single time man every single time that I reconnect to my mission and who I wanna serve and who I want to help. My fears are not as scary. It's not that they're not still there. It's just they're not as scary because I realized that there's a deep y behind all of this. The last one is I want you to give a shit, but I don't want you to give shit. Let me explain because you're probably like what the heck Angie. I want you to give a shit about the people you wanna serve the woman that you're, you're trying to reach. This goes with the point that I just mentioned. I want you to focus on that. I want you to embody that, but I want you to not give a shit about. Anyone who doesn't like your work or who you who your work is. Not four and some people call this filtering the trolls. Whatever you guys can go, listen to those old troll male episodes. But I mean this in a loving way. I mean this in, I mean this in a you need boundaries energetically way where if you're Steve doesn't like your stuff or back from high school sees that you're selling something now and she thinks you're the sleazy saleswoman or you know someone on your team is like, who are you to be doing that you, you almost have to have this level of you care, but you care so much about the woman that you do want to serve that you don't have time for that shit. You don't have time for that low vibe shit. You don't have time to apologize. You don't have time to to explain yourself to someone who doesn't get it. You don't have time for that. Your time is super precious. So that has been one of the most valuable things I've ever done. I love my. People so hard. I love my community. I love my tribe. I am so connected to you guys. I chat with you all day. I respond to things I am. I'm in it. I'm in it in it in it, right. Like I love you guys. I'm so excited to me you guys in a few weeks. That's my jam, but if someone's not my jam and they just don't like my stuff, they think I'm weird that they get stupid, whatever. I don't even know. It's not like it's not even on my radar. I don't give two shits, right. I don't give two shits, so being really conscious about having boundaries having tough skin and knowing that you're not here to please everyone. You're not here to make everyone happy. You're not, and you're never going to be able to. So if that's what's been holding you back and that's what's been making you feel like a fraud is that you're so afraid of family or loved ones, or God forbid your husband. I've heard this, hey, let's just get real. Your significant other thinking, what you're doing is stupid girlfriend. It's time to remind yourself how awesome you are. It's time. Remind yourself of your gift and to realize that anytime you're bringing more lightness in, there's going to be darkness there's going to be resistance, but this is your time to really see how strong you are to see how bad you want it into filter out people who are just not in alignment with what you wanna do because the more successful you become the more trolls under the bridge there are. I don't know why it's just the way it is. People either love Oprah or they hate Oprah. People either love Konya or they hate con-. Yeah, right. It's just just just life. Anytime you up level, you're going to meet this resistance. And this resistance is often this fear gremlin that says to you, who the hell are you to be doing this? Who are you to think you're smart enough to do it pretty enough tall enough educated enough, whatever enough to do it. Someone else in line wants to do it. And here's my response to that. I have a few thoughts on this, but my initial response is what I like to say, who the hell is anyone to do anything. I'm not a genius. Someone who figured out a biz. This isn't a genius. There's not something they know that. No one else knows. They just stayed consistent and they just found something that worked and they worked their Asraf and I, I want that to be the norm. I don't want it to be who had the most education who had the most degrees who knew the most people who had the most followers who had the most connections, I wanted to be the woman who wants it the most and the woman who stands up for what she wants. And I believe that the world favors the bold the world is going to favor the people who are grabbing their lady balls and just jumping in and realizing that you don't have to know it all to get started and you don't have to be the best. You just have to be a step or two ahead of someone. So that's what I want you to keep in mind. One for coaching is that you only have to be a few steps ahead. I don't want you to think that you need to be this expert who's been doing this, whatever you're teaching for fifteen to fifty years. I, I don't want you to think that you have to be Jillian Michaels to be teaching and fitness. I don't want you to think that you have to be Gandhi. Or Gabby Bernstein to be teaching about spirituality. I think that that's bullshit that we're putting people on this pedestal of experience or perfection when they're just humans were all just humans, and they're just sharing the journey that they're on. So your journey as your journey and where you're at is going to be more relatable to someone then possibly them because they're so far away from their their audience now. So there's actually this beauty and being closer to the surface to the person that you're trying to speak to. So one, you only have to be a few steps ahead, stop thinking that you need to know everything in the world to help someone. If you have the desire to help someone start helping people, one hundred percent and a story period. If you want to help people start helping people experienced trumps everything. I don't care about your resume. I don't care about how good you look on paper. A good coach is someone who's willing to get messy. A good leader is someone who's willing to get experienced. It's not someone who sat with their face in a book and is like, oh, I haven't really in degrees derive all the answers. Look at me. There are so many people out there who have a double masters and who knows what, and they still can't get a job or be leader. Right. Like let's just say it like it is. So I just think that we live in such such a beautiful time. It's at your unique time where the opportunity is so vast to start doing what you want and to take control of what you want and to realize that you don't have to be perfect to start something. You don't have to be perfect to make money. You don't have to be perfect to be successful. All of that is bullshit. I don't want you thinking that you have to be this unicorn to make things happen or that successes for other people. There are no other people. Have you guys ever heard that saying in life? It's like that's for other people. How many, how many people's parents would say that's them. That's for other people that's for the rich people. That's where the smart people that's for those people. I'm about to let you went on a huge life secret. There are no other people. There is no room or they're all hanging out, like speak out the secret to success. This is it. You are those people. Everybody is. Same. And as I like to say beyond, say poops and what I mean by this is beyond say, poops she is a human just like you. She is a human just like you. She's got problems. She's got twenty four hours a day. She poops like she is a human stop. Thinking of people who are ahead of you as something different than you. There's nothing they have that's different. And if you guys saw on my story the other day, I had this beautiful quote from my Angelou, and she was discussing imposter syndrome, and I was researching all of these incredible women in history who are seen as these idols as these incredible leaders who still wake up every day and deal with deep deep imposter syndrome. So looking at these people in history and realizing that other people deal with this as well as what helps a lot of people. So they don't feel like that there's something wrong with them. I don't want you to feel like there's something wrong with you if you feel this way, I want you to know that's completely human. It's completely normal. And like I said, I believe that a lot of successful entrepreneurs and leaders and women in business maybe that you follow or this could be the Oprah's of the world. I think that people assume that they have it all together. People assume that they have all the answers are. They always had all the answers and people assume that they never deal with this sense of imposter syndrome. And I believe that it just I believe it actually can get worse as your career grows as well. And I do believe that these people deal with that on a really deep level. So knowing that if you're feeling a little bit in your business right now, there's nothing wrong with you. That's completely completely normal. Hey, sister friend. Did you love this episode? If yes, head to Instagram, tag me and you listening to this episode. I love saying hi to you.

In order to be successful it will work for a day. It will work for a week. It will work maybe for a few months but eventually Karma is a B with a capital b. You know what I'm saying. The universe knows God knows when. And you're not doing what you truly want to do. And guess what happens it ends up by you in the ASS. I was trying to think of a more creative way to say that and I was like I don't know it just it ends up not being what you wanted the course flops. And it doesn't do well the events that you thought you you to host because out events or maybe I know I'm over here thinking pencils in my eyeball. Don't do it worrying does getting I love it but it's a lower this speech that you thought you had to give because someone else did the book the Ted Talk The post right you posted something and can fully copy but you're like oh it was kind of the same format that someone else standing. She got high engagement engagements. So do you know what happens God or the universe. He's on instagram. He's on social media. They're four and he's like and now so he's like that's cool. That's cool no creativity here. No innovation here and it's not authentic at all so I'm GonNa make sure it doesn't do well the authentic be you you and I challenge you this year to be creative.

Because what happens is when you pour energy and passion into those current people who are following you and you provide them in value it ends up growing. You have to treat those five people as if they're five thousand because it does not become five thousand people or fifty thousand or five hundred thousand until you. I have nurtured. Nurture the five people in front of you and get back into which I believe is the most beautiful thing about being a female and business owning a personal brand Indiana coach and a creative. And whatever it is you are. Is You have this ability to be super intuitive and be super in tune and have this hulse on your people and this pulse on what women need from you. That's what makes you an amazing teacher or coach or practitioner rate so tuning into that and using that as your superpower this year realizing you do know what to say you. You do know what to post because it's probably something that's on your mind and some that you've been struggling with and if you know your niche and you know your specialty is and you know we are speaking sue then there should never be a question on what to create because you're simply just creating solutions to what people are dealing with and you're simply sharing stories of what you've experienced you're just ashby storyteller. WHO also infuses teaching? That's it we make it so complicated but it doesn't need to be complicated right. You know who you're seeking to and if you don't while answered an ad for my niche course right here okay Angie lead dot com slash. But seriously if you know why your specialty as if you know what your product is your offer. Is You know who you're speaking to. You should be able to create content every single day. Because you're just speaking to someone you could go to a coffee shop every day and help a woman who is suffering with something you've experienced right and give her information tips and tell their stories and experiences. It's no different. That is what social media's it's just an expression of what you would say to a best friend signed. Who needed your help? Are you guys man. I teach social media and sometimes I'm like we make it so complicated when it doesn't need to be complicated so it really challenge you to be more creative this year. I challenge you to be more authentic this year and I challenge you to not look at what another woman's doing and Sierras competition if you guys saw my postal check out that video just posted on. She's not your competition. I challenge you to see her as possibility. I challenge you to see her as she's leading the way she's paving the way for you. I challenge you to see her. As what is actually possible for your brand or your business instead of seeing it as competition or seen it as either or thing zero-sum game that's not what is going on here. You guys the demand for health and wellness coaches for life coaches for wellness products for finished products for spiritual coaches. The demand demand is literally millions of people millions and billions. Verno tons of people right. I'm not genius with math. Okay like I'm not a mathematician. But here's the deal. You guys don't need that many many people to have a full-time lucrative successful at impactful business for some of you might just need a thousand people a year. Not even depending on your price point and you're offering what you they do so union a sliver of that demand. You need a sliver of that. So is there room for all of us. There's room for all of us and the way that you explain explain something. Let's say the exact same thing dude. The way that you explain something and the way that you teach something is completely different from how I teach something. So if Susan is listening talking to you and I maybe she resonates with you and she doesn't resonate with me totally cool. Maybe she likes you because you don't swear you don't use the word cheese balls and you don't talk about poop on your podcast cool. She can go listen to your show and then if she like she wants to be a low pressure and you're some crazy shit she can listen to me. You know what I mean like. There's so much room for all of us to do extremely well. Aw there is so much room for abundance. There is so much real for you to be successful. Money is fluid at abundance. Right is a resource that we can just keep making Printing money is abundant. It is coming your way. It is not something that if I have time you can have it. That's not the way it works. You can be wildly successful and I can be wildly successful successful. You could make a shitload of money and I load of money. That's let's go about the energy embody it just keeps moving circulating right. The demand is so high. I and the supply is still so low. If you're coach a leader and entrepreneur or you're a woman who wants to lead your nine five and start that side hustle and you're nervous because you're like a girl Ardi wrote a book on this or there's already podcast on this one of my best friends the other day she's brilliant. This massive wholeness brand. And she's voicing me and she's like dude. I want to start a business podcast but there's already Sony Business in marketing podcasts. And I'm like yeah but like most of them suck and like all of them. Aren't you majority. Jordan of them are probably not that good. So if you're good at something you already stand out and then to the way they you explain. Something isn't going to be the same way. I view another marketing coach does so of course there's room for you and guess what there's millions of humans you need help with marketing and sales. If there wasn't the whole world would just be making it rate the demand is so i. I don't want you not taking advantage of an opportunity or not doing something this year. Because you're afraid that someone else is already doing it or there's already too many people doing it. There's already too many girls and network marketing. There's already too many people posting on instagram. There's already too many podcasts. There's already too much this if that is your thinking then you are Never going to get into any business because why all of the great idea someone's brought so much probably already doing it and that means there's the demand that means it's profitable. That's a good thing. That's a good thing. It would actually be Siri for you to get into something that there's no proof of concept right and people don't want it so dude it's okay okay to be in an industry that has competition. Competition isn't a bad thing. If you want to be the only fish in the sea wall I I don't know what you're GONNA do sister friend but there's going to be a day where there's no one else doing it right. So competition is not a bad thing and think of target and think of all these clothing name brands. You think that they care. There's other people coming to market or do you think that there's going to be this lack of clothing brands coming out. No because they know that they're still such a high demand for humans to number one. I want you to be reminded that the woman that you think is your competition is actually your friend and can actually show you. What's possible so thinking of it that way and number two? It's not a zero sum game. It's not a zero sum game. That's exactly why showed you guys my tattoo because we live in a life of so much or right you can be this sore this. You can have this for this. You could be a wife or a successful business owner. You could be a mall or he says it's all these stupid orders and I believe that you guys can have it all and and you can be at all and you can do it all and you get to be just as wildly successful as the woman next you. There's no reason why you can't so don't let that the reason why you don't hit something or launched thing or do something this year. Don't let that be the reason. And last night the blew by you know what we're going to infuse a little I will. I don't think the universe God gives you something that you I can't be happy for in someone else. Do you guys feel. I don't think that the universe will give you you something that you I can't genuinely happy for in someone else years ago before I wanted to write my book. I saw a ton of women coming out with books and I thought to myself. Aw Man initially hurt me right. This is five or six years ago it hurt me. It killed me inside to see them reading books and I thought what the heck one obviously I haven't published Russian yet so we'll be upset. They took the auction. I can't be mad at me that I didn't do right number two. I immediately switched my energy to so much cry and so so much love for this person. I immediately shifted the energy. To how could I be so happy for her. How can I send so much love to her? Can I be proud of her. How can I be excited that this woman is showing coming up doing something powerful because when my book comes out I want her to send me that same energy and so now this year writing my book? It's so interesting now. It's coming full circle and I'm like thinking to myself. I'm so happy that I spent time in that energy because I know that it's going to be successful because I trained my system to be happy for other people on their success. If you cannot be happy for other women and their success you're probably not going to have this might be tough law and this might be really hard practice for some of you deal with jealousy but I the challenge you this week instead of looking at another woman's post about her book or her event or there's women's message me and said they felt this way about as to be brave and said a feeling that way. What if you commented or message said I am so happy for you? I'm so genuinely happy for you. I know the work you put into this the passion you put into this out of the dedication occasion you put it into this and I can't wait to experience that myself because I know it's coming to me if you speak into existence you're ninety nine point nine percent more likely to you have this success versus you heating on the other person or not being excited for someone else. It's really important to have love and compassion and support for people. Well doing what you want to do. Someone else's success doesn't hurt you. It only helps you. It only inspires the entire collective to do better be better rise up and do more hopefully conspiring you to do the same. And I'm showing you this not as difficult as it looks. That's really my whole career. I just wanted to do fun. Really Cool challenging shits to then show you guys that you can do it too right. I want to put on that with thousands of people and show you that if you're hungry enough and your two nations enough and you really to sacrifice at work in your face off you. Two can host an event like that. It wasn't rocket science. It was a lot of work and it is still a ton of work. It's the hardest thing I do but it's not impossible. I wanted to sell out courses and I wanted to make multiple six figures in seven figures in courses and affiliate launches and. I wanted to do that to show other women that you can do it too. It was difficult. It was exhausting. It was not fun at times. It required a lot of patience and risk and see nice and just a ton of stress. But it wasn't impossible. I want to show women WANNA start physical product lines that it is hard. It is really hard my brother and I now owning. CBS A lot of work. It's a lot of passion and and and commitment and team building and it's a lot of tears and it's just a lot of new stuff for us and we're still tackling a lot of it but it's not impossible. This is what I want you to do. I want you to be an example for other women that whatever it is you want to do. Prove to them that it's not impossible. It's not impossible. None of this is impossible and now audrain a book. I hope it sells half a million to a million copies. Who knows? Let's go. Let's do it and I'm going to do it and I'm GonNa pour my heart Sola my passion into it just like I do with everything else to lead by example and it's not going to be easy but it's not going to be impossible so to recap really quick number one. Another woman. Success is showing you. What's possible astle? Put your head down. Put your blinders on on follow. Anyone who makes you feel like a piece of pope is an inspiring you and if you feel jealous of her on follow her for a bit and and you'll start to feel so much more creative when you create stuff from your heart and your soul and you answer questions for your audience and you're solving problems in your storytelling instead of pretty content. That's cute and trendy what you think everyone else wants you to post or what. You should be posting. Because Karen got a lot of engagement on that post so you should. Do you know more more. It's time to be creative. It's time to different number to you. It's not a zero sum game this world that we live in this game that we live in called life is so incredible. And and it's so you can be wildly successful and I can be wildly successful. We don't have to choose. There is no or it isn't an sign. We both get to my number three. I don't believe that the universe gives you anything beautiful you. I can't think is amazing and beautiful and incredible and someone else I genuinely. I think you have to be happy for someone else. Something that really pisses me off online is that we have this idea. THATT's what we see on. INSTAGRAM is somebody's entire life and you really don't know what that woman had had to go through overnight. Success is complete bullshit. It wasn't overnight thing for her at all and you have to realize that there was so much that went into it. I'm trying to be a better example of this with peace. Be Breathe because people commented. Oh it looks easy it looks easy and these yes it sold out and yes. It was one of the greatest successes in my life. But that doesn't mean gene that I for my heart and my soul into it and if you guys saw the amount of work and stress that it caused me you would be like whole Lee Shit. You'd be mind nine months but all you see on instagram acute video clip. You don't see what people are putting into stuff you and the only way to disrupt the noise is to create something that someone stops awesome says. Oh my God that's me that's different. My eyes haven't seen that. It stimulates something in their brain and it attracts this. So you don't need to be anyone else to successful you don't need nor should you try to be anyone else in order to be successful. Let me be real with you. Starting a podcast was one of these smartest things I did for my brand and I want that for you. If you feel like you're stuck in the growth of your business and you don't know how to connect with your community and you feel like the woman that you want to speak to serve is listening to podcasts. And you have to start a podcast and in five years you are going to thank me for pushing you you to start this podcast and to take action because you're GonNa wish that you would have launched the show so girlfriend is that is you but you have a ton of questions when it comes to launching watching the show growing the show how do you have top ranked show all of these questions about podcasting and I felt like I wanted a resource to send you to that. I believed in that. Yeah I knew could answer all these questions for you because I know that there is a woman listening to this right now if not thousands of you that should be starting a podcast. So when I saw that Stephanie. He had the PODCAST team. Bro University a jumped inside. I creeped on it. I watched every single training and I was like. Oh my God this is it. This is super in depth. This is exactly what my girls need because everyone wants to know how to launch grow and monetize a successful podcast.

Stop Chasing Likes, Money & Followers. Authenticity Is Your Superpower. Afraid To Sell On Social Media?

"I think a lot of women and men online are pretending to be someone that pretending to be perfect or returning to be this perfect influencers fitness coach or whatever, and then they're exhausted because they're pretending to be perfect to they're pretending to be something they're not so many people they chase after chase after comments they chimps after the dollar when it comes to social media and building a community that they never ended up building that community because they're so far from they really are and they're. Trying to just after like superficial benefits of it, they might look at somebody like us built a massive platform got ten million downloads and you've got this DC brand and you're selling out events and they've probably like, well, she's just lucky but they don't see the fact you've been doing this for. So long the one thing I am absolutely impressed by what you do is your super real on your social media if you're having shitty day if somebody's in your comments, you're still there like showing up. I had no that being your authentic self could make his riches I've become if I had I'd have done it a lot earlier. Oprah Winfrey one of my favorite quotes of all time and truly what this conversation today is about. Today's episode is from two conversations. I had one with Doug Bobst, who is the host of the adversity advantage podcast and the second part is with PR expert Lawrence alone both of them interviewed me about authenticity and showing up on social media and I had to share this conversation with you because more than ever we need to be fully ourselves online and I don't know about you maybe you're an alien but if you're human being listening to this, it's terrifying to be fully yourself online. It is probably one of the most courageous things we can do to be our full authentic selves publicly and on Social Media and after owning a personal brand end small businesses for the last ten years I've realized that marketing isn't about trying to make everybody happy or serve everyone and their uncle Ted online thought about trying to get everyone and anyone to buy your product marketing is being genuine marketing is being honest. Marketing is being fully you marketing is being authentic and unapologetic. That's my deepest passion is to give you permission to give you permission to be fully you whatever that may look like online authenticity is your superpower, my friends and it's your greatest business assets. and. You can take all of the notes when it comes to ads in funnels and conversion ends up. Blah but you being fully you is the greatest gift you can give to this world I. Love You. I think you're GONNA. Love this episode. Let's dive Ed. What's up chicken but did you hear the news? I'm hosting a free instagram marketing workshop it's coming up teaching you. See how I grew to one hundred thousand followers with zero hashtags zero fancy strategy and zero paid ads spilling the beans on exactly how to get a thousand true fans on instagram listen you don't need ten thousand or a million followers. You don't eat ten thousand or a million customers. You I need a thousand people who are loyal to your product and loyalty your service. So if you want to create content that stops scroll and attracts. Customers on instagram no fluff nobody. S I don't around my workshops than this is the training for you coming out with me live I can't wait to see you on Nj dot com slash one thousand again save your spot at Njit dot com slash one thousand I can't wait to see you live and teach you exactly how to attract your first one thousand true fans on the ground angie dot com slash one, thousand I'll see you soon. I believe the greatest leaders or influencers are people who have felt pain and have felt deep empathy for humans I. Give a shit about humans I really really do that's why I do what I do and I've always put an answering someone in the DM or connecting with someone on a live video or showing goofy and authentic and genuine more than focused on ads in funnels, and the the analytics said the conversion rates and. Just really stayed in what is more the right brain versus left brain when it marketing and I think that's actually a strength because a lot of people when they get into marketing, they focus on click rates and the analytics focus really on the left side which there is a tiny place. Right there's a time place for ADS. There's a time and place to know your number is what's going on in the beginning of the. First, four or five years I didn't even know really what a sales page was or what a good conversion rate was. I didn't know what a good open rate was to write email. They just kept emailing people is because it was fun I feel like the biggest mistakes quote unquote right now, our number one, this lack of authenticity like you were mentioning because everybody is starting to look the same it sounded the same in. The Fitness Industry in the coaching world in the personal development world especially in the female purcell developing world I, feel like everyone's posting the same cute trendy thing because it looks cute and everybody else's. So if she is in in, you know she has a lot of followers than I'll do that too and we're just all copycats becomes diluted. So I, think one the in super unfiltered, inauthentic whatever that looks like for you of. My brand really grew and became more a hundred percent myself at for so long I was pretending to be somebody else online and I had this fear around being super silly and comedian before marketer. So I was afraid to show that because God forbid on teaching business and all these serious things I'm allowed to make jokes I. Loud. I don't really know no one else is doing that in this space I I don't i. Don't know like my life that person in the moment I said, you know what? I don't care I'm just going to be me if people don't like it who cares because I didn't sign up to be an actress and sign up to sheer life in myself and who cares and you could be smart and we are okay. So I WANNA show up and I did immediately the open rates, the dams conversions, everything blue love. Within a few months because they saw themselves in me and I gave them permission to be weird to be whatever the heck they are and I think that's the coolest part of marketing is its authenticity more authentic. You are the greater the connection, and that person will indirectly by anything you say because they trust you which they should because you're being real right. So one I think there's this lack of authenticity online which people. Are Craving more than ever in twenty twenty because everything is so filtered in faking the same number two I think a lot of people don't want to niche down they don't want to have a focus. They don't want to become a specialist they don't want to become great. In one thing they want to be generalists. They Wanna be general life wellness than purpose coach and they want to be Tony Robbins and they just started yesterday. And I'm like dude, get in lines though yells okay I would love to be Audi to. I think being honest about starting narrow and then going wide and realizing that there's this beauty in enduring less better online and saying, Hey, I'm really good at X. Y. Z.. These are the three things by double down on. These are my three inches. Of My brands and that's what I teach, and that's what I do. Get great results that and that's where you're really going to be impacted income versus you're trying to teach everything in anything under the sun that you've ever learned in your life, and then it doesn't stick and you're and you're wondering why people are converted and while you're not standing out on Instagram, it's because it's just too general is just too fluffy and I always tell women that I think women were just I don't know mentor also also multi passionate but women, we want do it all and be-all overnight right a lot of these life coaches come out really struggling because they're afraid image down so I would say those. Are the two big things I see is a lack of authenticity and the fear of Niching Down I. Think there's a lot of people that struggle with health into city right now and is nothing probably worse I think than when you're trying to be somebody, you're not because now you're worrying Oh is the people who actually know me when they watch me are they gonNA notice that I'm being somebody different or you know can they take me seriously and I was being interviewed either day and they were asking me about my this person coach, a lot of people in the multi level marketing industry and we were talking about that you can spot mlm person a mile away now on instagram. Posting said and I'm sure you agree with this is people care about you know the juice they don't care about the workouts about taking some wise. I mean not saying it's not important because it is. People who are really trying to attract or going to relate to you when you can convince them that you understand them and you understand their struggles where they're at because odds are if you're in the health and wellness business and you're trying to attract new clients, yours clients aren't drinking the Kale juice right now, the clients probably still sitting on the couch you know watching that flakes eating chips and just feeling really shitty about themselves. So I think I agree that that's one is the authenticity part and then also. A lot of chameleons out. There's a lot of people that are like, oh I'm just GonNa try this try that they're doing this they're doing that. and. Then because of that is a lack of patience and they understand that it takes time to consistent showing up like Gary v talks a lot about this. He talks about leg and we'd like like Moghadam I love Gary V. myzone. Yeah. But he said he said he responded to like all these. Every tweet on twitter for like I don't know I mean years or whatever, and he was just consistent consistent consistent and he didn't care what people thought. He just new accuser speaking history speaking his message. There's so many people that are trying to figure out where to start online and they just realized it just be themselves because when you're yourself like the people who are meant to be I mean on your journey with you, we'll stay in the people that aren't they will. You said it perfectly, your job is not to have everybody like you ask the goal you're GonNa be in for a rude awakening I mean girls you make don't like poop jokes unlike cool. Go to another. Page, where the marketers more serious than as a stick up their butt by like I don't care. There's hundreds of thousands and millions of women out there who I could serve and help. So once you really embraced that you realize like man, my only job is just to be so fully need that inspires other people to be fully themselves like that's that's deeper than marketing that's deeper than making money. My greatest compliment is when a girl DM's me and she's like, you inspired me to just be myself today I'm like awesome cool. That's marketing versus I hope some girl make money and that's great and all but helping someone just be self expressed or find the courage to start the. PODCAST or start. The show that to me is is really winning and your said about Gary V as crazy as it might sound I respond to every single damn. I still make sure I'm on top of it I outsource other parts of my business. So I could still be that person now I'm not perfect within nor I think there should be the pressure to be or influencers or leaders, but I do try my best to do it and it is important because those are my people that's if my bills if you think about it, right those are my people who really are supporting me and then I have a pulse on what they want what they need and I keep. This connective tissue with my audience and I know what they need help with what are they struggling with? What does she thinks funny I mean that's I'm trying to talk to you. So a lot of people aren't actually in their DM's enough to know what's going on. So then they don't know what content to create you have to find a platform that you love and that you enjoy the one that you want to show up on and the one that's fun for you, right? Yes. There are certain ones where it's more important for us yo in where's your demographic but at the end of the day, the one that you love is the one that you're going to do so. Thinks fine I love Instagram I think it's fun his so multi dimensional it's. There's nothing that matches the intimacy of it ability to get on video and and micro eight. It's so powerful. So I love it. But if you don't love it and you WanNa go ham on Youtube or podcast, I would double down on that Ben Right when something's gone, you're consistent in it's enjoyable. You're consistent like dieter a workout programs made it a place where it's fun for me I get to be fully myself and might. Not Be for everyone but I'm very unfiltered on very authentic on goofy. I'm weird I think that has been saving grace when it comes to consistency as well because when you get to show up and be yourself every day a lot less energy, it's a lot less stress it's just ub new right authenticity is the number one thing that was ophir energy. So I'm I'm very authentic Lauren me a lot we're friends in real life and This is what I'm Mike and so I'm not pretending I think a lot of women and men online are pretending to be someone the pretending to be perfect or pretending to be perfect or fitness coach or whatever in their exhausted because they're pretending to be perfect there pretending to be something they're not. So one being authentic to obviously a lot of you peeps on or health and wellness peeps taking really good care of yourself sleeping. While all of those things so that I can perform because I'm on a lot I'm on an interview I'm podcast video on a lot of the day. So when I'm on, I, WANNA bring a level ten and in as far as selling this is all going back to the same core word of authenticity I don't feel like I'm selling because it's just me sharing things I love and I'm I'm always telling but I'm not selling so. Then, it doesn't really feel like unsettling and I've done a good job and we can all improve always but I try to be their friend more than I'm selling them right and I think my audience feels that they know that they're just entertain them the sheer cool things to fart around show my life. I'm really sharing all of those aspects. So then when I do sell if feels genuine because they, they know me and we. Buy from people that we know when we like in so someone can follow me for a few days. Feel that genuineness and say, wow, I want to buy from her because she's genuine anything that's been my saving grace. I. Don't have sales scripts I don't have a formula to tell you. I'm just fucking January and people can feel that right and I think beds it another seven step process like, yeah, like I have a formula for. Stories that I use a little bit, the educator, the teacher, the influence, or the friend I had this this framework now and I do many courses on it but man at the end of the day, I. Say throw a piece of paper be fully you on those stories be so you that follows you. They know if the if you talk about something, you're not bullshitting them. So when you are selling its real genuine, you're obsessed. With it and the issue is oversell they sell stuff. They're not actually obsessed with than people can feel that seat up through the screen and they have issues with sales but sales is a transfer of confidence in passion. That's all it is. I'm obsessed with this thing I want you to be obsessed with this thing, and let's have an exchange of energy when it's not authentic. We we sound like a robot like by this things like. Right. Instead of just being who we are talk on your ID stories as you would to your girlfriend talk. At your dinner table, your kitchen table saying, Hey, what's going on? Let me give you some tips on this thing. Okay. Let me help you out and use that language and use that energy and it just flows easier when you're promoting something for a lengthy period of time and you have those natural dips like this woman you guys promoted pays to brave that happened in October her event for a year. So how did you stay like? In that zone. I'm still dire. That's why I'm taking a break. Dire I'm serious I nearly had a busy today I was like I literally busted my ass for so long. Yeah I don't take breaks either it's like I'm dislike needle hiatus but yeah, I promoted for a long time because I don't like rushing when I promote rather. Slow and consistent at natural authentic. So for me, I, rather talk about something in a bunch of fun different ways for a year and show the benefit showed social proof and testimony fun different ways to promote his marketer versus trying to promote an event in two weeks or a month, and then deal stressed about it. Right and that's where a lot of people put themselves into a sticky situation with marketing because they're only giving themselves a few weeks to do something where if you are fairly new or it's something like a live event that takes more time to promote ally than will always take. More time than anything that of course takes up to a year in the courses physical products ruining your podcast free these things like that that can be shorter of course but give yourself more time than you think and Yeah Lauren you're saving grace in that. You helped so much without affiliate marketing program in you know that was a beast like that was no joke what we did to fill that room at thousands of people and I would be lying if I said it was easy. It was the most difficult thing I've done like I- courses and everything else now I'm like, Oh, this is great. The overhead is so low. It's so easy it event I don't even know if I'm GonNa do it again because it was just such a stressful experience it was amazing though right but it's very stressful. So yeah, it's it's a lot I can give yourself time to promote and social proof is so huge and finding fun in different ways to promote some pain because marketing. Is Monotony. Right is saying the exact same thing on different ways? The best brands in the world are telling you the exact same message over and over Lululemon Nike it's the same tagline. It's the same thing years and years and years, but they're finding fun new different ways with their campaigns to tell you about something. So I've found this groove with monotony but making it exciting. So then I can stay consistent saying the same thing but the not get bored of it too much. I've loved that and that is so important you guys because I think so much of the time we think we'll I posted about this topic wads already I can't talk about it again no recycle your same core messages over and over again because people aren't seeing everything. Can Post you now? So you want to get in their brain so that when they think about whatever that thing is that you're talking about all the time, you're the person they go to even after my event I, remember the next week I got the girls and guys saying, oh my Gosh, wait. Do you have an event? I WANNA go visit it and I was like. Gosh. This is where I quit going to visit the WHO's gonNA write eilly dogged about it every single day for three hundred, sixty, five days. Right and then they're like. that. I don't even know if you have an event I'm like. What are you GonNa do so you realize that when you are in your own head, of course, you think you're talking about it too much when you share your own story on social of course you it's not cool because it's your own story and we're in our own experience but you don't realize that a lot of times not everybody's seeing your feed not everybody's. Seen all your stories, they go a day where they miss them right or they don't see on your contents they miss an episode or they don't know your story you do. So it's okay to recycle these ran stories. It's okay to recycle a lot of this stuff and funding for way is give people don't see all the time you do because you're the creator. Okay friend. So protecting yourself in your business is kind of like a condom and don't really WANNA. Do it but you know you should. Rate and you know it's important to to to protect yourself but I don't really want to. Okay. So here's the real deal I. I'm not a lawyer in case you thought I was case you thought I was, but I get in I mean Elwood's did it. So maybe Angie went to Harvard and got a law degree.

YOU NEED TO START A PODCAST. YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT PODCASTING ANSWERED. THE EXACT SECRETS TO GROWING & MONETIZING A TOP RATED PODCAST WITH STEFANIE GASS.

"There's zero chances of ever being successful. If you just keep thinking about how perfect it should be before you do it. I sat down behind a twenty dollar Amazon Amazon. Mike and the only podcast I listened to was Angie and I'm like well I guess if she says I can do I can do it. We're going to keep a real here. Your first few episodes toads might be to you. And that's okay. Because what your pen twenty episode. We'll be better have to show up for it because stuff that you don't know who. You're impacting when I started for this. I had no idea the impact it would have in now. I can't imagine not getting on this. Mike and Helping people episode is brought to you by my homies. Four Sigmatic Day are the fun guys. The Fun guys get it fung it because it's mushroom coffee. I feel like that's such a dad. Joker something right the fun guys anyways this. This is my favorite coffee hands down. You know if you follow me on. Id Stories that. I am sipping on my four sigmatic lion's Mane and chagas coffee every every single morning. This is my go-to coffee because I am such a coffee. SNOB and I will not drink coffee. That is not completely organic and that doesn't have adapted agents and it's my adrenal are very sensitive to caffeine. So when and if I drink coffee it is a hundred percent for sigmatic and I know what you're thinking Angie Asia. Does it taste like mushrooms. Does it taste like mushrooms. And the answer is no. It's absolutely delicious. My go-to our number one. Of course the lion's Mane because lion's Mane is proven to help you with creativity and focus and I don't know about you but I'll take all the gray divvy and all the focus I can get so number one. I'll always do at least one packet of the lions made in the morning and then throughout the day to be really kind of my adrenal. I'll do the adapted genyk mix which is Tolsey in Oshawa Gonda or do the latter day which is so creamy. And so that's my favorite right now. So if you're ready to throw the the toxic starbucks in the garbage can yes starbucks is highly toxic and you wanna delicious all organic coffee that you can travel with you want delicious elixirs elixirs with the towel and adapted for your dreams and you want a ton of brain boosting benefits to your coffee then you have to try out for sigmatic. I have a feeling you're going to be just as obsessed as I am or Sigma Dot com slash. Mg Lee when you snag them tag. Jeez so we can sip coffee fi together in the morning and be coffee twins forcing matic dot com slash. Mg Lee and. Let's dive into today's episode. Are you wanting to start a podcast. I if yes you are in for a treat. Today's episode is with my friend Stephanie. Gas She is the host of the MOM. preneurs mastermind shelled. We took your juicy questions questions on instagram. All about podcasting how to launch hotter grow who was podcasting four. We answered everything when I launched my show a few years ago I ahead millions of questions and I stayed up googling them until four. Am Most Nights. So I'm GonNa save you that headache today. So grab a pen and paper and let's dive into the very first question. which is how do I know with podcasting is for me? What do you think about? How do you know if that's right for you? This is according you guys but it almost feels like. You can't not do it right. You're like where's the microphone Turn out I have to talk to him and a half to help them. The best podcasters Are People who just generally want to be on that Mike and do it and then I think it's putting your business had on insane okay. Does this make sense. Is this something that fits into to my lifestyle my schedule. You're a busy mom so honestly I do think audio is one of the smartest things you could you because you don't have time to clean up your house and get yourself together and always put makeup on or look a certain turn way or have your life be a certain way and yes people want to see real but more than anything people WANNA see assistant content and you need to create them in that you can pump out consistently and the audio the platform is so easy to do. And I mean that you can do in your closet when you're in your children's such a perfect medium for moms and busy mom preneurs. Moore's and so I do think that it's this blend of this passion meets. This is a smart medium for me. And if you're listening to this and you're Nisha something that doesn't need a visual components. I believe believe that podcasting is really really powerful so personal development business. Coaching lifestyle coaching. I think a lot of those things do really well in an audio format now fitness coaching and nutrition Chretien. If you're showing recipes in the kitchen or your workout in the gym that may be something that does a little bit better on youtube because it's a visual style of coaching at the visual thing that you're showing in but I do think that it does well if it's something that you know is more so just auditory which is really really cool so yeah I think it's something that is just a blend of those two bangs. I feel like a third component Angie. which would be my Avatar? Her name is Lola K.. Your perfect ideal customer client. How do they want to consume as well? Because I think wii wasn't having success is talking to this Mama and she's not watching Youtube video. She's in the car. She's doing pickup dropoff. She's at the gym. And when I shifted to hugh how does she need to hear from me it exploded. I mean it exploded like I never anticipated. I'm like Oh my gosh. It was audio the whole time But I had to get out of my way to see that I guess so. That's the third piece is how does your customer want to hear from you absolutely. I'm so have you brought that up because so how many times we start things because we want to do that. And that is important. Because you WANNA make sure that the medium that you're on is something that you enjoy ladies. You have to make sure that it's also the place where your were demo or your Avatar is hanging out and for example your mom your teaching mom preneurs moms love podcast because it's the epitome of multitasking. Oh my gosh hot gas while you're wiping your kids but while you're clean up you know. The gummy is on the floor. While you're I mean making them dinner while you're talking to your husband while you're in the car on the way to soccer practice it's the most most beautiful medium for the multitasker I don't know who else is a multi TESCO and moms so. I think especially right now if your mom listings. This coach other moms I think podcasting super powerful. And it's one of the only mediums right now where you can build intimacy while people are multitasking. And that's so cool and it's a powerful on Youtube. I don't know I just I hate that one. I'm watching a youtube video. I can't also be cooking because then I have to minimize the video if I want to also like tech someone back really quick. It's just kind of you know. Oh my gosh yes. I felt the same way I like to do while I consume and that's just everything and I think that's everything for where we're going. Everyone is trying to expand in the online in space especially in what we do. y'All like guys are MLM and podcasters coaches and you're trying to grow in scale this organic following online. You have to servants all you have to you. And so you kind of have to pick really. I think to stand out. I don't know how you feeling edgy. But it's GONNA be video or it's going to be audio and hopefully it's kind of a blend of both but but for me what happened with podcasting is it forced me to be consistent. It also gave me the leeway to build something on my own schedule and just be so much more authentic than I ever for was on video. 'cause I'd be video and I'm like eyebrow is uneven. I literally cannot focused right now. Everything would distract me and it was about me and I had such a hard time name shifting. This isn't about me. This is about her. This is about my Lola. But when I got behind the MIC it removed me from that equation and I was able to pour under her so much at a deeper level authentically. She could hear the genuine in my messaging. So maybe if you're struggling to like how do I share Oregon nervous on video. Oh try audio. Because that was a huge change for me Absolutely I do think it's also this game of the one that you feel like you said the most confident because then and you're actually going to show up you have to what you're actually going to be consistent on. You know what I mean. Oh Yeah constituencies everything you guys are. Oh my God it's everything so number number one is I would definitely make sure that it's a medium that your ideal clients or your demographic is on. I would make sure it's something you guys are passionate about attend. Make sure that it makes sense for your business. Is it something that can actually drive traffic to your courses or your products or your offer. And what's beautiful about podcast casting is. You're able to tell them all of these things are able to redirect your audience to all these places and almost use it as organic funnel and a sense which is really really cool. So what would you say to the girl who is afraid to start. Let's cover that before. His I mean I know a lot of people. It's terrifying because they have this idea of meeting to be perfect at needing to sound a certain way. Okay and have. It edited a certain way. They're listening to Joe Rogan. Anything they need to be as good as your Rogan. And it's like y'all no one tried is good as Joe Rogan. Okay it can be really intimidating not really really scary. Okay here's the situation right. You are never going to grow in any capacity in your life if you are not fearful when you start something new. It is inevitable piece of expanding growth if you have the dream in the call on your heart to do something incredible. While you're here on earth you're GONNA have to get uncomfortable. There's zero chances dances. Have you ever been successful. If you just keep thinking about how perfect it should be before you do it. And I sat down behind a twenty dollar Amazon. Mike it was staticky as hail and the only podcast. I listened to was Angie and I'm like well I guess if she says I can do it I can do. It could have sat there and thought. About what equipment do I need you know. How do I do all the scenes? But where do you edit. What about an intro? What if I sound weird do I say I'm too many times but instead it just sat behind the Mike and I said a prayer an open my mouth and it's pretty funny goallessn episode one? But I'll tell you what if I hadn't done that one thing. I wouldn't have a community of one hundred thousand women. I wouldn't have a show that hit fifty. Four in the entrepreneurship category wouldn't have grown revenue by ninety eight percent. I wouldn't be sitting here talking to Angie right like all of these. Things played out in order. Because I said I'm just going to do it and you guys what's the worst that can happen. Your mom listens cool. You still learn grew right you still learned how to show up confidently how to practice how to copyright how to get consistent with your your messaging. You're going to still get better at your craft by trying and so I always think of it that way. I'm going to grow anyway even if nobody listens. And here's the other piece of this. Yes you are called to do something how do you know the ripple effect it's GonNa have what if you launch this show. You have ten people that love it and one of those people are some mm type incredible world changer. Like your message changed their life and you were the link to do that and that was a piece of the puzzle that you were supposed to do but if you never do it. You can never impact that person's life so those are just the thoughts that I go through and the process that I take myself on every time I'm going to do something freaking terrifying but it's always worth it. Yeah I love how you said this. It's so beautiful because I think it's funny in life when we expect to be really good at something before being a beginner. It's so silly. And it's my book ready as ally is going to be about because it's like people think that they become a good writer but they're not willing to have a shitty first draft. Yeah thank you become good podcast. But you're not willing to have a few awkward shows. I mean it's almost a sense of entitlement but it's also the sense of why do you think you get to skip episode. Honor Day One. No one gets to skip it. We all have it a guy like you have have to have the awkward growing pains of an Awkward First Episode in Awkward First Draft An awkward first book. Show Day One. Whatever that is because that's where you learn and that's how you rose we're GONNA keep a real here? Your first few episodes might kind of be sake to you. And that's okay. Guess what you're paying twenty that was it will be better right. Just have to show up for it because like Steph said you don't know who. You're impacting when I started this. I had no idea the impact that it would have a now. I can't imagine not getting on this Mike and Helping people and it makes me sad actually think about not doing that and so we think if you guys have that burn and that passion in you that has to override the fear of one if I sound weird. What if the Mike's Weird what? If I don't know what if I suck at this. I mean you know what is really sucky not doing at all. That's about you right when you say. Yup I'm scared but I mean me like that's not what this is all about. This is all about you helping in solving and using the gifts that you have to make an impact on that other person on that mom on that whatever ever it might be so get yourself out of the way. 'CAUSE NOBODY'S GONNA show up for you. They're showing up for them. They want to learn from you and get better not about us and that's the hard mindset insist shift. We have to go through when we're scared to show up. Amen you guys. It's not about you it's about the woman you're serving so get out of your own. Dang way the first thing I want to cover is having a niche to your show. I think this is so important in the beginning. Especially when you ladies who are thinking have starting to show are really wanting to Derby's lifestyle shows that are about everything in anything and makeup beauty in pregnancy and infertility in Acne and fat loss coaching and religion. And you're like what it's like. No people are searching for specific thing and especially if it's I tunes. People are searching for one thing at a time usually so I believe that the most successful shows started niche. And you gals would be so surprised how well your show can do when it's really focused especially sponsors. You know sponsors want shows to be really neat because then they know that the listener base is needed for certain products. What are your thoughts on women? Starting with the show nationwide. Do you think that's also important. I am with you one hundred percent and it's so funny because my students in the course and that I work with they say but that's not enough. That's too small Mike. Listen listen let's take me as an example. 'cause I'm a visual learner. So went top one percent network marketing to online coach four network marketers to away. It's not I just network marketing. It's entrepreneurs so I'm GonNa just beat this online entrepreneur when I coach them Yay and it was like so big and the problem with that is that I was not helping anyone in particular so someone would dabble with me. Oh cool you know. She did this instagram training. And then someone else was like. Oh I like when she talks about mom life and the problem was had no retention. It had no loyalty in my community and I was growing slow slow slow because I just wasn't resonating with her so as I continue. You need to do this work. The funniest thing happened I show up on stories. Hot Mess me my kids. I'm doing like a video training on business with my kids and my stories were doing so well and then I'd go the feed and it was crickets and so I started asking like what's going on you guys like do you guys not like my feet and I got so much feedback there like we hate your feet. It's so polished. It's so structured with all your colors like that's not you we watch you for your stories and inside my stories. I was doing three things. Christianity my faith my kids and business training. And I'm like that's it. You guys want me you're gonna get it like nowhere filters I'm talking about my pimple Petunia. She is here she is here to stay day. The messy eyebrows. Like just let it all hang out and really decided you're getting stuff like with no filter and what happened there is. I created this micro niche of Christian Shen mom premature and when I started to target her specifically teaching her how to podcast and create online courses to monetize the podcast. It exploded. Because it's a small enough for me to rise to the top and so as you ladies are listening to that cake the big thing. You're super excited about dig in. Take Angie's Taurus deeper levels of what you're passionate about. But who specifically what her traits you know for me it was like it wasn't just an entrepreneur. It was a mom poor. It was a specific type she. She was faith-based she believe in higher power that was gifting her these things that she wanted to impact the world and then how podcasting courses so got so micro niche that it was was able to explode you guys you know I am just flipping my bubis over here. I'm such a niche nerd. That like hearing. This is like music to my ears nearing Stephanie. Be like okay in the nine inch down Emma preneurs then faith-based monitors yes is exactly what I want everyone. Everyone please do this like I know who it is. I know who it's not that polarity Larry is so amazing. And I just love that. You're owning a specific niche specific space. So you can become the best at that thing and you can go all in. And there's the power to the search of of that start the show niche and then as time goes by you can make it more broad but my best advice for you gals want you rang up with your show and then have it rained and actually get reviews to have it start really specific verses just like a lifestyle show for women there's literally hundreds of thousands of those and pink exactly exactly a reason to click play. That's not enough of a reason anymore between nineteen but everyone their grandma wants to start a lifestyle show for women exactly. And it's like unless you're literally. Kim Kardashian Dan people aren't just going to listen to someone fired around and talk about life. Unique sadly an expertise in something and it doesn't mean need to be perfect. It does mean you need to have some sort of idea of what that content is or the research search expert the middle man who's bringing on experts in that topic. I love that. We're not saying you have to talk about the same thing every single day but we are saying you need to have a common core denominator of the woman woman listening. Why is she there? She's there for one reason so go deep. Ask yourself a listener. What is her number one problem one problem not one hundred and and then how can I solve that using a variety of different examples and different guests experts? Yes I love it I love it. Let's dive into the question. Which is the Tech Staff Woo? Okay let's cover the tech really quick because it's not even something to sit in stress about you guys. It's not even worth our times. You go really in depth with it you guys are the host of the show. You're the PODCAST. I don't want you stuck in the tax. So what would you say to the woman who is stressed about the tech stuff. Okay because they're also afraid of that and it's like it lists easiest thing it really is and that's honestly what kept me back for a while so I feel them on this and I'm pretty techy so I feel like that wasn't what Mimi now. If you you are afraid of tech you need to outsource and you guys listen. You don't need a full on produce you can go to fiber or up work and sort by reviews. Find someone inexpensive and and sagged that person. It's twenty thirty bucks for a thirty minute episode seriously. Don't let that be something that holds you back you guys like. Just don't just don't let the tech hold you back. Recorded shows my phone. The tech should be the last thing you're worried about. The content should be the number one thing worried about content hundred. The next question is do you make a lot of notes before recording or just go with the flow. I am a little bit more of a go with the flow girl. You know what I'm saying I do. Do you have bullets though. So here's the real deal you guys. I am about structured flexibility. I do have bullets in front of me. That had the top four things that I want to make sure I cover but it's literally just a bullet. It's a a few words and then I if so. It's almost like a Webinar. I have some notes in front of me but I just go and then once I'm in the zone it's game over and I'm in the flow state some women read from notes and literally arena word for word. The way that you want to do it there is no right or wrong here. What you like and Nudist have identify what type of show it is? I do the same as you Angie. I have just Outlines right now have nothing in front of me because you know your stuff guys. You're so afraid of not knowing your stuff but you're going to podcast route something you probably know. Oh enough about that to know yourself. Give yourself some credit right. And if you're just not that person like Andy said write it out but for sure. If you're going to be that person I'm reading. Read it a couple of times through because I can tell you want it to sound conversational unreal as well so we. La with it. Just be you just be yourself. It doesn't in have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be perfectly structured. Solve her problem. Keep some of the imperfections. Then people want to hear people so go ahead and keep some of the weird `ISMs that you can have editing to it but you don't have to take out everything and I realized that the more real in Rye keep it the better again. That's getting so caught up in the tech side of it but to be honest you guys you just have to keep it simple to start. You don't have to worry about it sounding a certain way and yeah there's a few shows I listened to where I can tell that she is literally in I. I won't say what it is but she literally reads were or word and I'm like are you serious. That's so weird. It's so weird to me. I'm sorry I'm just going to call it. I think it's weird and I. I don't know it's just like shouldn't you just know how to riff on this. You know why though because we are craving authenticity were so tired of the perfect feed and the perfect picture or is just like everyone blasted me. They're like please changer instagram. And like you got it because I am so sick of these style photos I could like seriously cry and I think everyone out there listening as well is going. I want want to hear real people telling real stories getting through the hard stuff and showing me tangible real solutions to it without filters and all the fate in the perfect. I think we're all over it amen. I just don't like the sound of it. It's not enjoyable to listen to win. It sounds like it was all recorded and it sounds like you're reading from a screen. It just sounds robotic and it's not pleasant. It's weird next question. I have a newer. podcast what are your tips for getting out there. Love this one so oh I have helped. So many women launch top thirty podcasts. And it's so simple it is so simple here. A couple of tips from this launch strategy. The first one is when we're going to launch a new show. You WanNa think of it as if you're launching a product an online course so much buzz and excitement and even if you're like but I don't really have a following it's okay you know people right we're GONNA go. MLM for a second and be like write a list. How many people do you know that love you the care about you? You're going to let them know. I have a brand new show. That's coming out. Would you mind taking click. Listen and leaving me a written review because when you're show is new having those reviews come in really quickly like within a forty eight hour Window that's what gets you ranked higher in your category and a couple of my students of new and noteworthy. And what happens when you hit new a noteworthy simply because of your reviews because people are listening and sharing your show and I tunes knows. This show is getting a lot of clicks a lot of traction than your featured on their homepage so the strategy is get visibility within I tunes. That's one so reviews from people you know and then the second thing that's my favorite is do some giveaways or contests within social media. Yeah like instagram stories for me has been a huge one and whatever your show is about. Let's say it's like the productivity specialist. I think that actually exists. Oh sorry who has ever that is but you could do something something like plan or giveaway do something. That's in line with what your show is about and run a giveaway. Hey go listen subscribe and shared your stories. Shout this out. I'll enter you to win. Just those two simple things grab a lot of traction and even if you're shows old it's okay relaunch it and you're right the I guess what I gotTa show like thirty the people that love me go leave Mir Review and what you want to add there. I love it. I love all of us. Your social media you guys wherever you are the most active on social media. I think that's so powerful powerful. I used facebook lives to drive a lot of traffic to the show. That was really hot for me when facebook lives are really hot. That's when my show really blew up because I would do teaser. Your content on the facebook lives and in say at the end of the live. If you want to hear the rest of this go check out episode twenty five on the podcast. And that's how I send sends a lot of traffic to the show. I also use my email. Is My instagram. So again like Steph said definitely do giveaways giveaways a really really powerful. And give it time. I am you guys. You have to incentivize your people your current tribe even if it's five people to share it with their friends and whatever you can think of as a powerful incentive to get them to share that's the way that the show spreads creates such good content in such valuable contents that it is almost irresistible for them to not share it. And that's really what happened. Opened with my show there was no secret strategy to it. I really didn't even have a strategy was just stay really consistent and provide people with incredible incredible value and it just spread like wildfire because is it was just so nation so valuable exactly sexy answer to give you guys. I don't have a five step system right yours. Just read it like no. I just created really good shed every every single day of my life. It's the grit. It's the actual work of Angie. It's not about. What is Stephanie? WanNa talk about today. It's about what is my audience want. That's how it spreads like wildfire also inside your episode. Did you learn something. Did I help you today please. The number one way you can thank me is to share this in your stories. Share it with a friend who needs this message genet tell them inside the show as well the thing right. Yeah and Ninja tip. Use your show to build your email list and has your show to drive traffic traffic to your products or your services or your coaching. You guys your show becomes your home base and the place where your people hang out and if it's your house you show them around and you show them the different rooms you treat them as if they're your friends and so making sure that in the episode you mention Hey if you want to learn more about XYZ. I have a free guide or a free video on my website. And here's the URL using your show as a lead magnet in a sense is really really powerful. Oh my gosh one hundred percent you guys you build such beautiful intimacy MRI with your audience. Because they feel like they're talking to their best friend on the phone which they are every single day every single weekend such a valuable thing to have in your business and I think if you're listening to this new have the calling you hard to do it. You just have to do it. You have to the next question is ooh. This one's good. How important is the name? If my niche is mainly moms does mom's need to be in the name of ood okay. What are your thoughts on this? Okay Okay Okay so my thought is yes you WANNA have at least in the subcategory. The word mom. Tom And I think you really want to think about. What is your show about for that? Mom Is it productivity hacks for MOMS is it network marketing business building. Coaching secrets for MOM. Tom Like what is the thing. And then you go to that mom's brain and you ask yourself. What is this mom? Googling what is she googling right now that I can plug into this title the number one problem so for example. I have a student that she wanted to do productivity. And she's like but I think I should do productivity like no now like who is four. She's like oh I think it's for the mom. Like what type of MOM is. She a stay home. Mom does she have a corporate job like she's a working mom because she's looking for productivity hacks for MOMS right yes you need the words Servat. She's searching for but I think also if you can embed who it's even more niche. I mean you know what I'm going to say about noon though I mean listening is is just your way whether you like it or not. Do it be niche with your show. I mean there are so many podcasts out there but I'm telling lean you this because I want you to know that yes there are a lot of shows and yes. I think it is so important for you to have each show but it doesn't mean that there's not still space for the people to grow in podcasting. I don't think podcasting has even hit the surface. It's actually still considered a very new medium that a lot of people most of the world does not know about so yes. There is a ton of space But there is now more competition than there has ever been so you guys have your title easily. That's really powerful and really should if you make your title really vague. People aren't going to listen to was show that they don't know what it is so if your cover photo and your title is confusing. It's like a movie. I don't press play on a movie. That is really confusing or we are so oh. I think it's important to treat your show like a movie right. Yeah you have two seconds to grab their attorney Lynn. So be clear. Unless you are Oprah running that show and they're coming here for you and they know your name and they're searching for your name which ninety nine percent of us that's not happening it has to be clear right. I know we WANNA be catching in Q.. That's not going to get you listeners. I especially new traffic and it's so important you get new traffic in and then catch him with your content may get specific probably more than you wanted to be in especially if you're really trying to build a name and have credibility in the podcasting space. I would definitely definitely definitely making more specific. The next question is logistics equipment naming episodes monetize the platforms forms all the nitty gritty. Okay again attack you guys. You need three things which Stephanie covers in her incredible course on you need a Mike number two. Is You need a hosting site. This is where the show actually lives and this hosting site communicates with I tunes and spotify in all of those places and number three is you need an editor. Okay so okay listen even if you are a techie you guys sure at at your first few but get an editor you can find a Mike really cheap on Amazon and you can have a hosting website like Lipson or pod. Bean for twenty to forty bucks a month when you're starting so all of this is around. Let's say you grab a hundred dollar Mike AAC you're hosting site. Let's say is one hundred bucks a month but in the beginning it probably wouldn't be until you're hitting some big numbers and let's say you're editor is forty to one hundred bucks an episode so you guys are looking at one hundred dollars investment for the Mike One Hundred dollars let's say for hosting plus editor. Let's eighty four month. You're looking at Max five hundred bucks a month onto host a show. If you're doing longer shows I mean what would you say is your breakdown. Stephanie and I think that's invaluable compared to what it could do for Your Business and how how much money this show can make guys whether it's with your own products or with sponsors. Eventually I will tell you. I was spending thousands on ads before I had my show and I was so focused on. Get the lead in and make the sale emanate shifted to. Oh It's servants salt. It's not about me. It's not about the sale and I invested in the show without any expectation tation. I thought it was an add on like this'll be fun. You know help her. The show became the revenue driver. The show became what brought him the leads. What brought in the sales because they like trust me they laugh with me? They want to solve their problems. I get messages everyday like Steph. This show specifically changed my business or my life in some way and to immune like that is the greatest gratification. Literally I could ever ask for is hearing that. I'm helping people at that capacity but then it's also driver for my entire business and and so I'm saving money because I'm barely running ads anymore. which is crazy re-targeting ads and to run the show? It's probably similar to Angie. I have I literally. I'm still using Mahindra. Mike like I love it my Eddie. It's my jam. It's totally totally fine. You guys you don't need thousand dollar equipment. I'm using pod bean and using Lipson and I think it's like ten or twelve bucks a month. I get editing for thirty to forty bucks depending on my show and sometimes I have long episodes like forty five minutes so you do the math but does not expensive overhead to have an organic sales funnel that has evergreen that will live on forever. podcasting will live on for you when someone finds your show. They're binging you and they're getting obsessed with everything you have to offer and they're going into end up wanting to buy from you if they resonate with your stuff. It's so invaluable. You guys and to give you an idea. The first Mike I got was one hundred bucks. It was a snowball or a Yeti now this one I'm on right now is eight hundred bucks this whole setup but again you guys that's after four to five years podcast tonight. Just set it up last week because I was like this other. Mike Works Great. So but again you you guys started with one hundred dollars and then posting site in the beginning was ten fifteen twenty thirty bucks a month and now it's two hundred to two hundred based on download numbers and the space and then editor some of them in the beginning. Fifteen to twenty bucks and now sometimes one hundred two hundred bucks an hour depending on the quality of editing so again even at my level guys now with millions of downloads is still keep its issue less than a thousand dollars a month to maintain my show so you guys. I'm not kidding. The iphone microphone is amazing. So the last episode I did with Keisha. Oh you guys on podcasting go back and listen to that one. It's from a few days ago. That is all on the IPHONE. Eleven House. We were together. She didn't have her Mike. Long Story Short. We are at a crunch. We he wanted to be resourceful we wanted to get it. Done done is better than perfect. And so we used the IPHONE and it was incredible and it was great and my editor. Clean it up just a little bit but other than that. It's fine and it's actually really good. Microphone and it's really because it was her phone so if you girls don't even want to invest in a microphone. Just start with your iphone. Okay and Steph. Where can they find? Editors I use fiber and just sort by reviews you guys news upward. If you don't WanNa do that you can get people their entire job. There are so many freelancers out their podcast. CAST's publicist I know. So many of them. I have many of them as affiliate relationships in the course that you can work with them. They're a little bit more expensive. So you just decide so you know if you WANNA go a little bit less expensive and get the job done or if you WanNa full on. Produce are a bit more from the beginning. There's literally any budget any budget at all. There's a solution for. Are you tout source. Yeah what about hosting. I know that you cover this in your podcasts courses. Well but what are your thoughts on hosting. Does it really matter I mean again. I think a lot of them at the end they are pretty similar. I know they each have pros and cons though. Yeah same I'm with you. They're all really similar. You guys so I would pick from the top five. That are the biggest. Make sure you're looking at like lips. Percents all the other big ones and just looking at price. What do they offer what you need like some new video podcasting capacity as well but I would look at that I would also look at the scale scale ability of your show because some of them start out cheap? And then you're like Oh but when I hit five hundred thousand downloads it jumps up two thousand dollars a month so also look just like what. What does it cost today? Is that have functions for you to scale. Does it have the broadband for you to have a big show. What is it GonNa look like when your show hits one hundred thousand downloads? Let me be real with you friend. Starting podcast was one of the smartest things I did for my brand and I want that for you. If you feel like you're stuck in the growth of Your Business and and you don't know how to connect with your community and feel like the woman that you want to speak to and serve is listening to podcasts and you have to start a podcast and in five years you are going to thank me For pushing you to start this podcast and to take action because in five years you're GonNa wish that you would have launched the show so girlfriend is that is you but you have a ton of questions chains when it comes to launching the show growing the show how do you have a top ranked. Show all of these questions about podcasting. I felt like I wanted a resource to send you to you that I believed in that. I knew answer all these questions for you because I know that there is a woman listening to this right now. If not thousands of you that should be starting a podcast. So when I saw that Stephanie had the podcast team Bro University a jumped inside. I creeped on it. I watched every single training and I was like. Oh my God. This visit this super in depth. This is exactly what my girls need because everyone wants to know how to launch grow and monetize a successful podcast. So I'm going to tell my girls about podcast. PODCAST pro university. If you had to Angie Lee podcast course dot com. You'll see my number one recommended podcast course for you and I put ten bonus bonus videos and they're all about recording your intro and you're out tro what to name your show how to submit your show to spotify and what artwork to create for your show. Oh every thing any question you have girlfriend it is inside this course. It is a steal. Don't stop she needs to increase their prices soon. So dive dive in there before she does that N. G. PODCAST COURSE DOT COM to dive into her course. And you get all of my bonus trainings as well so any questions. Shoot me a damn and you inside. What is the best intro? How do you know how to start the show? Yeah I love that one. So for the INTRO. Oh for me. At least you're gonNA listen to my intro. It's some Gangsta rap. Because I am a Christian Mantra Noor who just wants to drop it like. It's hot when the kids aren't looking K.. I love zoom by. I said I was going to be authentically me right so I show has some gangster rap in the beginning it gets you jazzed up and then I'm talking about how I'm recording umbrella and flawless. Were drinking too much ice coffee. I WANNA make it interesting if you can think about what defines your Avatar your Lola. My Girl's name is Lola Ola. She's just like me okay. She's just like me so I can talk to her that way and she gets me. And I'm also in the intro which is hopefully less than forty five seconds ladies ladies just a little cut it down get the fluff out and really either make them laugh. Make them feel and also tell them what is the value that they're getting if you WANNA have have a structured intro. You don't have to. I have one also saying. Here's what you get from this show specifically. There's actually new rules which is why it's so cool so have have fun be creative. Be Weird if you want to start your show with weird quotes or a weird song. You don't have to make it like everyone else's and I remember when I started. I thought my intro had to sound like everyone else's so I made sure that it sounded like everyone else is the more I've done it. I've realized if I just want to get support right away. Get to the point. If I WANNA put in a very structured intro I will sometimes sometimes it just depends on what I'm feeling and I actually such a rebel. You guys. Are you ready for this. I do something that not a lot of other podcasters do and I don't know if you guys are ready ready for this but I change up my song a lot. You know why because I want to know roles and you know roles you guys and I remember. Someone told me key to the same song all the time I'm like I'm keeping to the same song for four years. That's so boring. I don't WanNa do that and I want to change. Is it all the time and people the Emmy I love that. It's a new song every week so I'm like cool Metoo 'cause I love music and I loved. Switch it up a little bit so I think that having fun with it is so important and I think that people who are creative and do have fun with it and out and I think that's important right. Oh yes it standing out. It's being you just be weird. It was B- You do it however you want to do it you guys because again podcasting is becoming more saturated so anytime industry is more saturated. There's room for more creativity and there's room for you to do so a little bit different. The last question from amber is when is a good time to start reaching out to brands for sponsorships. Can you talk about how people get paid for podcasting. Yes yes okay. So there's so many ways you can get paid for podcasting and I'm GonNa let an shock about sponsorships but I'm GonNa talk about my favorite way to monetize your new probably a lot of you. That are starting out. Maybe have a small following a moderate following. SPONSORSHIPS AREN'T GONNA pay that much at first when your show is small but you can still make money from day one. Yes with your show so my favorite ways to do that number one. The first one is affiliate marketing. So you're going to think about. Let's say you have a productivity podcast. Great is there. Ah Planner that I use. Is there an appetite. Use that pays out affiliate commissions to me when I promote this thing on my show. And then you're gonNA plug it in. He is just want to let you now. Oh I have been talking all about her titty. Today's episode my favorite planner for this is Blah Blah Blah. If you WANNA snag on they have a deal going on head over to Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah your era landing page or your affiliate link. Okay and you can do that if you have no products they've your own if you're a network marketer plug your products or your service or your site site into your show. 'cause you're probably going to be doing something in the wheelhouse of what you market. I would think that you can do from day. One that also grows your list and it makes you some income then the next here her that is my absolute favorite is having your own products. E books workbooks. My favorite is online courses. That's why a help women create online courses because because it's like eighty percent profit margin you're paying for hosting and you've spent a month building something incredible that solves problems. And you don't ever have to touch it. You walk away from it and you make money. So for example do a lot of podcasting related episodes on my show or about growing following or inorganic sales. Funnel or lava Blah Blah Blah. And so I'm gonNA plug plug guys. I have a podcast course. Let me help you navigate this process. And I'm pitching my own thing inside my show and I found out that was one hundred times more lucrative than taking sponsorships for me when my show is new so you can think about. What's the biggest solution that you provide? How can you create even a mini course even forty seven opener ninety seven dollars? Course you guys that can return so much income for you over the long run because your show can live on indefinitely and then pass it to Ange for sponsorships use that it perfectly perfect you guys. That is honestly the best way to think about it. In the beginning I would do. Exactly what Steph says. I would monetize on your own programs and your own services for your reaching reaching out to sponsors and the first few months to the first year of your show shouldn't be about getting a bunch of sponsors. If should really be about you guys getting comfortable with with your content your value your positioning your audience. What is she wants getting feedback really growing the show and putting the love and the patients into it and then eventually pitching gene? Some brands are having brands issue. But don't be obsessed with that part of it yet. I totally agree with Steph. Monetize your own. Coaching your own programs and the traffic to your network marketing team. Whatever you want to do use it? It has leverage for your own products and services before you're diving into brands because one they do wanna see consistency they want to see numbers. They're not obsessed with millions and millions of downloads but they are obsessed with the quality the of the audience. And if you've only been podcasting for a month or two I mean the reality is you probably haven't built in audience. That will buy everything that you say. Yes it just takes time to build that trust with the audience. It just takes time one of the most valuable things I learned is that these brands don't necessarily want the millions of downloads. They want the quality the of the audience. And so that still takes time and you have to prove yourself. I didn't start pitching to brands until about two years. In and then I started to send media kits or they started started approaching me and then I started doing partnership deal. So there's ones now where I have a monthly salary and I say their name a certain amount of times for a certain amount of episodes. Oh and then I received commissions on product. So there's some that I have an amazing deal were sponsorship plus commission. There's some words just commission. There are some words affiliate. I've really monetize it in a bunch of different ways again. I use it to drive traffic to my events and physical product line sold CDs. So it's almost like I'm using it as this medium to drive traffic to bunch of different places and it's fun working with sponsors and brands because I only choose products that I'm actually obsessed with and a high usually reach out to them. You guys to be honest because I fall in love with the product and then I say to them. Hey I want to share a code with my people. Can you give me a discount in. Do you want to create a partnership. It can be a headache working with brands to you guys. It's not always the enemy and you're not in control of a lot of things so l. if you can have it go to your own products and services in the beginning before you just have these brands pay you and again. I know your ego wants to be paid a million dollars right away when you started a show yesterday Susan. But I'm sorry I gotTa keep a real with you guys. You're my friends. I had to wait two years and I had a really really bust my ass improve myself up to these brands. You guys and I had to prove to them that I had an audience that was actually engaged and they would actually respond well to what I said. And that's what they care about. They didn't care about the millions of downloads. Because I know people out there. I'm friends with some of them who have ten times more downloads than I do. And they have zero conversions. Because they don't have that level of influence they don't have that sincerity behind the product. Only partner was shit that you actually love. Do not just partner with something because it five hundred bucks here and there. It's just not worth it and definitely definitely like Stephanie. Said I would start with your own products and services so just be picky for the long run. Maybe we should talk about that. Real quick podcasting is the long game. You guys this is. This is not sexy to say but podcasting is definitely the long game. It's something that you want to be in the next five ten years. It's something that you really WanNa put your heart into and realize that it pays off so oh so well if you just pour your heart into. Don't be so obsessed with the numbers and making money from it right away. You can't be. I don't think that's the purpose of it right away. At least I think you you just need to cool it. A little bit in like episodes up and get comfy and then like become obsessed with how to monetize all my gosh. When I started mine I was like okay? I'm just going to do this for one full full year and I'm GonNa do two week. I was like I'm all in. I basically said all my cards on the table. This thing like I'm going in and I'm GonNa just do my best and at a year I'll reevaluate evaluate you guys are doing two shows a week and solving problems over and over. There's no way that I wasn't going to grow right so the six month revenue was up ninety percent and all these people are in the community and getting these dams and just everything's exploding. Oh my gosh. What if I hadn't stuck with it for six months because the first two months totally sucked to be honest with you it was when I was like how can it grow faster? And what should I do. Should I run. Add just kept hearing stay true to the colleague. AU be consistent. Just don't give up and so I just kept pushing when we hit the one year mark it was number fifty. Four in the entrepreneurship category. Just died I just died on the floor because like I could've given onto. So yes what Angie saying one hundred percent and look at what her show has done the growth compounds faster than guys can ever believe when you're consistent and I think the first six months months is the hardest and you have to get over that Hump and you have to be so consistent when you don't feel like it you still get behind the mic and come up with something. That's an assault his or her problem and do it every single week whether you feel like it it or not and just keep going because it will pay off you guys you have to be in it because you love it. If you're listening to this and you have that burn and that desire you have to do it. If you have that calling I think you listen to it and I think that you'll realize that your passion for it surpasses the monetary aspect of podcast. If you guys listen to how I build this. You'll notice that all the success entrepreneurs on their will say the same thing. I didn't mean to make money doing this. It just happened because I loved it and I think that there's so much truth or not and that's my story with it at so many women. I know who really well in it now is. We never intended to get in to adjust to make money. I mean yes that happens but I'm in it because I want to talk to you guys every single week. I'm in it because I love this. This is my favorite thing to do right now. Literally you guys are listening to my favorite part of my life like I'm Janet. What an amazing woman on a show? This is so much fun. This is what I love to do. And this is my job because I do poor so much time love energy impassioned into it so when you guys put love and passion and commitment ensuite just like anything else in life it is is going to grow. It is going to be successful because you're pouring your soul into it but if you half acid and you'd upload once every ten months and not valuable and you're not really in it and you just just want downloads to look cool or for your ego or you just want to have brands paver no reason. Then you're probably not going to do well about guessing. Yeah Yeah now it's truth you have to love it. Oh my gosh. This is so exciting so fill them in on what you have for them. Because I've been searching you guys for an amazing Zien podcasting course for you because I want to send you guys. Someone amazing who knows what she's doing so fill them in on this guessing. Thank you and and and I'm so excited about this course. You guys put out so many courses in the world but this is like the one. You're my baby because I am so living living obsessed with podcasting that I wanted to help other women have that same experience. They were tired of trying to build and scale online. Or I can't get my voice heard or videos not my thing and I knew that when I had that type of success with my show if I could do that will make other women can do that. And people started hiring me to coach them through the process. One on one macaque getting the same questions. I'm going to create a course for this because hello passive income number one and I can solve this problem and number two who I wanNA provide something. That's simple easy intangible.

She wants a simple easy way to get from idea all the way through execution. She needs clarity on how to record how to edit. If she wants to wear to outsource how oh she can get interviews all of the little tips and things that she needs to get through the tack in a simple course and so I created podcast pro university and it has twelve twelve plus modules.
