Chris and I were coaching separate groups recently, and when we came together to talk about how the sessions went, we realized a lot of entrepreneurs are facing four similar challenges. We’ve noticed that many business owners are up against an audience problem, they’re not providing value to their audience, their content is stale, or they’re comparing their chapter one effort to someone else’s chapter nine results. It’s so powerful to hear the truth and bring some self awareness around what’s really holding you back, and we hope that this conversation can shine a light on how you can reach your true potential.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Growing your audience in accordance with the size of your goals Examples of how we add value to our audience before we ask them for anything in return What we notice about our social media numbers when we put out original, fun content  Our perspective on healthy comparison  The number one move that helps jumpstart your growth    RESOURCES Want to learn the truth about how to get your online business off the ground?

One of the most common questions that I get from listeners who are trying to build their platform is how to become valuable enough so that people with more influence actually want to return the favor or collaborate. I’m not going to lie, it requires you going the extra mile and finding creative ways to stand out from the crowd, but I promise that the time and energy you put in will pay off. There are three main things that people want when they’re looking for an equal energy exchange, and in today’s episode, I break down what those are, plus a couple of bonus ones. I also share my top tips for how to approach communication with people you want to collab with and some of my personal experiences with getting on someone’s radar.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Why you shouldn’t take it personally if you don’t get the response you want from someone you want to connect with  Understanding perceived value  What it means to value stack, and how you can implement that into your life  My advice for posting Reels and TikToks Examples of experiences, education, and things that you can offer to someone    RESOURCES Thanks a Little Passports for supporting my show.

What do you feel like is totally out of reach for you, and why? Maybe it’s hosting an event, launching a product, or adding on another service to your line up, but regardless of what arena you’re in, my number one piece of advice is to start small and scale from there. Lauren and I share examples of what it looks like to fine tune your idea and make it small enough so that you can get it off the ground. We discuss the importance of tapping into your message, audience, and marketing, and finding a through line that lets you show up as your authentic self in everything that you do. Plus, we recap what’s been going on with Lite Pink and our lives outside of work recently!    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Different avenues to reach your goals without taking huge risks  How to get people interested in your idea  Why we love collaborating with other people and small, local businesses  What a white-label product is and why you should look into it if want to get into the products-based business space  The three most important questions to ask yourself before you launch your business    RESOURCES Sign up for The Spritz newsletter at litepink.com!

Chris and I have realized that we’re happiest when we’re living our purpose, which for us means building something, working hard, and creating meaningful experiences with people that we love.

Fear is the number one reason why people don’t take the first step to pursue their calling. For some, it's fear of failure or being judged, and for others, it looks like perfectionism or imposter syndrome. The list could go on forever, but the truth is, the things that you think are going to break you are the same things that are going to make you. Challenges come up to test our strength and dedication to our dream, and what you do in those moments reveal you who you really are. There’s so much knowledge, joy, and success on the other side of those hard times, but are you willing to put in the work to make it there? I share how I handled a couple of mindset challenges that came at me this week and ways to reframe your perspective about hardship and pain.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: How fear shows up in fancy disguises  Practicing showing up as the person that you want to be  How my relationship with challenge and pain has changed  Extracting lessons and silver linings from hard situations    RESOURCES Sign up for The Spritz newsletter at litepink.com!

We’ve finally had some time to really reflect about our vacation to the Amalfi Coast and want to share some of our biggest takeaways from the trip. Our friend Rob Murgatroyd curated so many beautiful experiences as part of his Work Hard Play Hard Mastermind and we were able to really soak up the Italian culture, art, food, and fashion. We talk about getting clarity on how we’re going to balance the joy and production containers of our lives, and our commitment to making time for new, enriching experiences in our week.    We learned about the Italian saying “Dolce Far Niente,” which means the sweetness of doing nothing, observing beauty, and enjoying life in the moment. Chris and I want to take time to be more present in our everyday lives and worry less about things that we don’t have control over. This trip proved to us that a vacation doesn't have to be just a moment in time一we can extend this sense of peace and wonder into our everyday lives.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Examples of how Italians value both form and function, and beauty for beauty’s sake  Why we’re cutting off work at 1PM on Fridays for the next few months  Applying deeper meaning to our beautiful life together and taking away the power that stress has  Finding magic in connection and conversation when business isn’t the main topic  The benefits of getting out of your environment and day-to-day comfort zone    RESOURCES Blue Mind by Wallace J.

Lauren and I are talking about times in our lives when we were really manifesting something and it didn’t turn out the way we imagined it, but we’re so glad it happened that way because there was something even better on the other side. Lauren tells the story of how she landed at Lite Pink and realized that her entrepreneurial dream can happen inside someone else’s (aka mine!). We talk about the importance of creating a safe space for your employees to explore their passions and be honest about their career goals, which is something I learned the hard way.

Chris and I break down the layers of decision that it took for us to actually follow through and take this vacation, plus something really valuable that we learned from our friends about deciding to have a good life.

I wanted to have a conversation with Chris about what’s really going on in this uncertain economy, what he thinks is coming in the future, and how we can prepare ourselves so that we don’t experience a repeat of 2008/2009 when we had to start over from scratch. So many of us are scarred from The Great Recession, but the reality is that the majority of news outlets rely on fear mongering techniques, which just make people freeze in fear. In today's episode, Chris explains how we’ve ended up in this rapid inflation situation, why a recession is usually a self-fulfilling prophecy, and three ways that you can bulletproof yourself for whatever’s coming down the pipeline.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Navigating negative propaganda about the economy  Debunking myths about economic recessions  Taking a critical look at your monthly spending habits  Ideas for how to create a new income stream Why we always suggest having a 12 month reserve in your savings account  The single thing that will set us apart from having another ‘08/’09 situation    RESOURCES Text BULLETPROOF to 310-421-0416 to get VIP early access to Chris’s new course.  Sign up for The Spritz newsletter at litepink.com!

My friend and incredible entrepreneur Kim Perell coined the term ‘the execution factor' and it’s a concept that I’ve been coming back to a lot lately. I’ve realized that the reason why so many of us don’t execute on our desires and purpose is because we're not clear on what we actually want. We have too many things on our plate and we haven't learned how to set up our schedule  and make time for the actions that actually move the needle. When I’m feeling stuck, I ask myself what is one thing I could do right now that would start to give me a sense of purpose and make me feel like I’m moving forward? In today’s episode, I share my accountability game plan and how I tune back into my goals when I’m feeling out of alignment.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: How I feel when I’m not making progress on my goals  My plan to make sure that I hit all my writing deadlines for my upcoming book  Discovering different areas of your life where you might need to make a small adjustment so that you stay on track  Staying focused when your to-do list feels overwhelming    RESOURCES Big shout out to Avast for supporting Earn Your Happy.

One of the biggest questions that I get asked is why we chose the direct-to-consumer (DTC) route instead of getting on the shelves of major retailers. In today’s episode, Lauren and I talk about the benefits of being DTC, how we collect data and insights about our customer base, and how we’ve harnessed the power of social media to build the Lite Pink brand before we even launch. Being able to connect to our followers and build relationships in the DMs has been an invaluable tool, especially with all the delays we’re facing. We discuss how to convert social media comments into sales and create a community of people who truly align with your brand. We also share our major takeaways from working in new and uncertain environments.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Exciting Lite Pink updates  Learning that you can still move forward and make decisions even when you don’t have all the answers  How social media has helped us generate buzz and create the identity of Lite Pink  The advantages and challenges of both DTC and launching in retail  Creating organic reach on social media    RESOURCES Sign up for The Spritz newsletter at litepink.com!

gotta admit, this episode was a turn off. all I could hear was the braggart message. Any positive message was lost on me. glad to know I'm that much is a lesser being. thanks for reminding me.

wow this was fantastic and the perfect podcast to fire me up this morning! I KNOW all of these things, but hearing it from you made it sink in even more. "what you're planting this year, you have to harvest and eat next year" thank you for this little golden nugget! 💕

This podcast was one of several that were recommended to one of my groups yesterday. I listened the Take a Leap episode while I was on my walk this morning. It definitely gave me the feels. Fortunately I was the only person out because it took great restraint on my part to keep from crying. Just a big "YES!" Thank you. 💖 This is being added to my podcast favorites.

37:05 I've wondered what is my gift, I don't see myself as business owner or major leader. But have thought about leading by just being and doing, my best self. Wondered if that was a thing or enough. So, thanks 😊
