The Real Story of Growing a Business: Interview with Jill Stanton - PPP: 067

October 9, 2017

Today we're going to be talking about living a "laptop lifestyle." Running an online business is just as much work as having a brick and mortar business. There are times where I feel incredibly overwhelmed when I think about all the things I have to do. I can be a good self-motivator, but I know there are ways that I can improve. You have to constantly be adapting. 

Utilizing the internet for your business can feel like a hugely daunting task, but it's so important. I'm in my 7th year of business and I can say that it doesn't necessarily get easier, but you have to keep trying. This is why I wanted to bring on Jill Stanton. Jill and her husband are the owners of the "Screw You" empire. She tells it like it is. She's comfortable with who she is and you can see that in her business. 

My biggest takeaway from my interview with Jill is how she put together her program. She didn't sell some crazy promises or anything like that, but she really breaks down how to get to the level in your business that you want to, with no B-S. A lot of people may sugarcoat their experiences or give some sort of cliches, but today we are going to be 100% transparent. 

SPONSOR

  1. How did you get into the online space?

How to Manage Your Time In Practice: Interview with Joe Sanok - PPP:065

September 26, 2017

A few weeks ago we talked about simplifying your practice with Luisa. We chatted about how you don't have to invest a ton of money, or do a lot of things, or make things more complicated than they need to be, etc. But you do need to take action and there are some basic steps regarding what you have to do. Today I'm talking to a guest who will share how to free up your life. Instead of worrying about a life-business balance, we're going to just be talking about a life balance. You should never allow your business to be all-consuming.

Of course, when you get your business going, I'm expecting you to hustle, work a little bit more, and create those systems for yourself. I'm hoping that if you've been listening to this podcast, I've given you a lot of ways to set up your practice right the first time. What we're talking about today is how you can strategically run a business even when you're not there. It's about spending time where you want to. We're not talking about programs, passive income, online streams, etc., we're talking about how to create your practice in such a way that will allow you to live a better life so your business isn't running your life.

Keep It Simple When Starting Your Biz: Interview with Luisa Zhou - PPP: 064

August 15, 2017

Today we're going to dial things back to the very beginning for those people who are just graduating, who just wrote their license, or who are just starting out, so we can take back a lot of the concern. As an entrepreneur, we're already overwhelmed enough and with all of the options for software, equipment, technology, etc. it can become so overwhelming. This is why I wanted to have a show where we break everything down, step by step. Right now you may be looking at the whole city when you should really just be looking at the street. It's time to simplify everything so you can see the roadmap, but you're not looking at the entire picture.

The Truth About Being a Mompreneur: Interview with Michelle Peris, ND

The Truth About Being a Mompreneur: Interview with Michelle Peris, ND - PPP: 063

August 15, 2017

Today I'm talking to Michelle Peris. In this episode, we're talking woman to woman about being a female in an entrepreneurial role while still having children.  Becoming a mompreneur and balancing my business with family life was definitely something I had to wrap my mind around. The first couple of months were really difficult. Going from completely independent to having a child that is completely dependent on you is a huge, overwhelming struggle. It can be difficult to navigate bonding with your baby, while you constantly have your business and work things to think about. To balance my work, my sanity, and my life, I found different ways to relinquish control, and manage both parts of my life. You just have to survive it. You have to survive being a new mother for the first time. You're going to have to give up certain things and it's important to be okay with that. You have to realize that you're not going to be able to do everything the way you planned it. 

I've brought on Michelle Peris to have an open and honest conversation about what it's like to own and run a successful business while also being a mother. I really encourage these types of conversations to start happening in our community, without shaming. Mothers shouldn't judge or make one another feel bad about different parenting choices, even if they don't agree with each other. It's important to be a little less opinionated, and a little more open minded. Becoming a parent is entering a whole new world that feels scary and judgemental, but a lot of that comes from within. It's important to take it easy on yourself. Understand what your limitations are. It will be okay regardless of how you decide to raise your family and run your practice. 

 

Questions I Asked Michelle:

  1. How has your business grown from the beginning?
  2. Did you have to fight with the internal guilt of leaving your family and your son to go back to work after your maternity leave?
  3. Can you talk about what it's like to go back to that entrepreneurial focus now that your children are going to school?
  4. What are some concerns you hear from other entrepreneurial moms?

What You'll Learn From This Episode:

  • How she figured out how to grow her business as a new parent.
  • How Michelle found a balance of work and family with the help of her husband. 
  • The importance of compartmentalizing your time as a mompreneur. 
  • How Michelle feels about "mom guilt."

How Niching Your Practice Is Not The End: Interview with Dr. Nicola McFadzean, ND - PPP: 062

August 15, 2017

Today I'm talking to Nicola Fadzean. I asked her to be on the show because I know we're always hearing about how to identify the target audience that you want to be treated is and how to figure out what that ideal patient avatar looks like. The thing is we hear it time and time again, questions like, "what does your ideal patient look like?" "what do they do?" "what are their hobbies?" "How old are they?" etc. It's incredibly important to know those things, but the part I find we're struggling with as a community, especially as a recent grad, is not knowing who that ideal patient is. We don't know if we want to focus on a certain group of people or one type of patient. Nicola went through this exact experience. She didn't

Nicola went through this exact experience. She didn't know who exactly she wanted to treat so she ran this generalized practice until one of her mentors told her there's no one really working on Lyme disease so she should get into it. You'll hear throughout the interview that it wasn't necessarily her true passion to treat the Lyme community, but she found a way to niche her market and grow her practice. It's a very interesting journey that she went to and I wanted to share that here on this podcast because I know so many of us feel we need to figure out exactly who we're going to treat right away, but you just don't know the path your business is going to on to get there. It's about being open to the evolution of your business and letting things happen over time.
