Episode 15-The 3 People Every Entrepreneur Needs
You have heard the saying, you are the sum of the 5 people we spend the most time with. To be honest I don't 100% agree with this statement because it kind of assumes that we aren't making conscious choices. But I do think the people that we have around us and especially the people that advise us are extremely important to everything from our success to our overall happiness and I do believe we have a choice in who those people are.
There are two truths that I want entrepreneurs to understand-no one is self-made and no one has all the answers all the time. Every entrepreneur needs support and the right people can help you on your entrepreneurial journey.
In this episode, you will learn how to create your own board of advisors and who belongs at your "table"
Questions to ask yourself from the podcast:
What are your core values?
If you haven't already go to my website and download the core values exercise, its free and will help you get started. www.confidententrepreneur.net
What kind of person do you want to be?
What does your ideal self look like, feel like?
What qualities do you wish to possess?
What do you want to be known for?
Do you have a vision for your life & business?
Who are the 5 people you spend the most time with? I would exclude children from this unless they are adults and are someone that you confide in.
What qualities do they possess that align with the person you want to be?
Do they align or at least understand and respect your core values?
Do their qualities match who you want to become?
Do they help support you or distract you from your vision?
Do they elevate you or bring you down?
Do they know enough about you and your business to be able to speak to them?

Episode 13-Changing Mindset Through Hypnosis w/ Guest Ken Hatcher
Have you heard of hypnosis? Of course you have! Most of the time that brings on a vision of a sort of magic show where you see someone involuntarily clucking like a chicken on a stage. But that is NOT what Ken Hatcher from Accelerated Hypnosis LLC. is all about. He prefers to use conscious thought patterns through Neuro Linguistic Programming to help us process trauma, frustration, fear, habits, and behaviors to achieve our desired result. He talks to us about how our brain works and what is happening when habits, good or bad are formed and takes us through a 15-second exercise that can immediately change the trajectory of our thought process.

Episode 7: Rhythm & Peace-The Myth Of Balance
What is balance? Webster defines balance as this: An even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady. When you think about the seesaw of life it is impossible to achieve balance. So what should we be working towards instead? Let's try Rhythm and Peace and see how far we can ride that wave.

Episode 5-Designing your perfect day
One of the things that I think defines us as entrepreneurs or even a human beings is our ability to evaluate where we are and make adjustments as needed.
Where I live we are right on the brink of spring and spring is a perfect time to really sit down and do a nice little check in with yourself, evaluate where you are at in this season and where you want to be for the next season. Have you ever thought about what your perfect day looks like, have you ever thought about how to make that a reality? In this episode I will tell you about a time when I was completely overwhelmed, frustrated and unhappy and how one little change made all the difference.
