What does it take to be a leader?    If you have been following me for a while, you know that I always say “take the lead, and the rest will follow.” If you have air in your lungs, you are a leader. But how do you take the lead in your life?    In this episode of Leading Lady, I am breaking down the word LEADER, and how I use that word in many areas of my coaching.    In my business and leadership masterclass, the word “leader” is broken down into six different modules. My book, TAKE THE LEAD, also follows the acronym L.E.A.D.E.R.: Learner’s mindset, Engagement, Authenticity, Dedication, Emotional Intelligence, and Resilience. I am breaking down what each of these means to me in my business and also giving you some tidbits so you can start thinking about how you are showing up as a leader in your life throughout this episode.   It all starts with self-leadership. How are you leading yourself? Others? Your family? Your business? These are all incredibly important aspects of your life, and I want you to be able to show up and be the leader you have always wanted to be.    Every letter and every aspect of the L.E.A.D.E.R. acronym is equally important. They all blend and work together to help you grow as a leader. Tune in to learn more about the six pieces of leadership and how they can help you step into the leadership role in your life.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Get my book TAKE THE LEAD: https://www.amazon.com/TAKE-LEAD-every-community-world/dp/B09V5JV4DB/ Book a complimentary coaching call: https://leadinglady-coaching.com/private-coaching/ Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

If you are a Leading Lady podcast listener, you are probably a high achiever. It’s also highly probable that you’ve experienced the phenomenon called “Imposter Syndrome” at some point.    Have you ever wondered if it’s a real thing or if it’s just a confidence buzzword that has been created by our generation? Well, to learn more about exactly what Imposter Syndrome is and how you can overcome it if you struggle with it, Dr. Lisa Orbe-Austin is joining me in this episode to talk all about it.   This episode went live just over two years ago now, and it is my most downloaded episode to date. As a fan favorite, I am bringing it back because the value in this episode is still so relevant and important today.   Dr. Orbé-Austin is a licensed psychologist and executive coach, with a focus on career advancement, leadership development, and job transitions. She is a co-founder and partner of Dynamic Transitions Psychological Consulting, a career and executive coaching consultancy, where she works mostly with high-potential managers and executives. She recently gave a TEDx talk entitled “The Imposter Syndrome Paradox” and is here to give us an in-depth look at this common problem.    After listening in (whether you’ve heard this episode before or it’s your first time hearing it), I hope you feel more empowered to tackle Imposter Syndrome in your own life and business.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Follow Lisa on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drorbeaustin Follow Lisa on Twitter: https://twitter.com/drorbeaustin Visit Lisa’s Website: https://www.dynamictransitionsllp.com/ Get Lisa’s book - Own Your Greatness: Overcome Imposter Syndrome, Beat Self-Doubt, and Succeed in LIfe: https://www.amazon.com/Own-Your-Greatness-Overcome-Self-Doubt/dp/1646040244/   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

When you first start your business, it’s so exciting! You have so much passion for your work, so the beginning phase is just magical, isn’t it?   Sometimes, though, we end up in denial about how much work has to be done. With any business, there are going to be things that just aren’t fun and that you don’t love to do.   Getting the not-so-fun things done at the start will make your work easier because you will have the structure, discipline, and procedures in place that will keep everything running smoothly.   By doing the hard work now, you can do the smart work going forward in your business. In this episode of Leading Lady, I’m sharing my top tips for working smarter so that you can grow and scale your business without working harder.    It’s hard to implement a work-life balance once your business is up and running, but by creating boundaries for how you’re going to work and how you’re going to structure your business in a way that works for your life and then honoring that, you are setting yourself up for success down the road as your business grows.   Tune in to learn about these tips and so much more!  Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Book a complimentary call: https://leadinglady-coaching.com/private-coaching/ Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Today's episode was such a fan favorite, I decided to bring it back because it was that good! Enjoy---   How can you love others without loving yourself first?   The answer is simple: you can’t!   We have to have really solid foundations with ourselves in order to be able to articulate what our needs are with another person.   My guest in this episode, Samantha Heuwagen, is here to talk to us all about this and how to cultivate healthy relationships with ourselves and with others.   Samantha Heuwagen is a Latinx marriage and family therapist and best-selling author in the Metro Atlanta area. When not working with clients, she sparks discussion about mental health with the goal to spread awareness across the United States and beyond by challenging the popular discourse surrounding mental illness and making it more inclusive.    We get into what the foundation of a healthy relationship consists of, why you need to love yourself first, how to define what your goals are for yourself and your relationships, what it means to be authentic in a relationship, and so much more.   This was such an honest and empowering conversation and I got so much amazing feedback the first time this episode was aired, I knew I had to bring it back for another listen!    Resources Mentioned:  Relationship Toolbox Freebie SamanthaHeuwagen.com https://www.facebook.com/SamanthaHeuwagenMFT/ https://twitter.com/Sheuwagen https://www.instagram.com/samantha_heuwagen/   Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Have you ever thought about hiring a business coach?    I talk to so many women on discovery calls who are trying to decide if hiring a coach is the right move for them. The decision to hire a business coach or life coach is a big one, so you don’t want to go into this decision without doing your research and knowing what exactly you need and what to look for.    I am a firm believer that everyone needs a therapist and everyone needs a coach. These are two very different things that will help you in different areas of your life. In this episode of Leading Lady, I’m sharing everything you need to know before you hire your first coach.    Not all coaching is equal, and I want you to have the best experience possible.    Tune in to this episode to learn more about what you need to know when searching for a coach, red flags to avoid, questions to ask, and so much more.  Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Book a complimentary call: https://leadinglady-coaching.com/   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

We all need a break sometimes.    You may have noticed that I didn’t release a new episode last week. While I don’t plan to make a habit of that, it was much needed. Life has been full of a lot of transitions for my family lately and there has been a lot going on with my business, so I was at my max.    With that said, in this week's episode of The Leading Lady Podcast, I am talking about the importance of taking a break. You don’t need to wait for an opening to get a break or a “good time” to take a vacation, you can schedule these breaks or vacations into your life whenever you need them.    I know it can seem impossible to do because, as entrepreneurs and high-achieving women, we are never away or cut off from our businesses, and we are the decision-makers so it’s hard to step away like that, but what you need to do is plan ahead so that you can take a successful break.    Tune in to learn more about my top tips for getting the rest and rejuvenation you need.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

What does your branding say about you?    Your brand is bigger than branding. It’s so common for us to not see the flaws in what we have currently because we are so close to our businesses. This can make it hard to see from someone else’s shoes, but you have to look at the bigger picture.    Your brand is your unique story, but your branding is for your audience. In this episode of Leading Lady, I sat down with one of my Leading Lady ambassadors, Lena Gosik-Wolfe to talk about how you can create a brand that stands out and connects you with your audience.    Lena of Lena Designs Studio is a dynamic designer and dot-connecting visionary who is able to bring high-level artistic strategy to brand design. As a brand strategist, she’s helping female-owned online businesses all over the world make more money by crafting a unique, beautiful, purposeful design that elevates them beyond a business and into a true brand.    When she’s not serving her clients, you can find her spending time with her husband & rescue animals, or tending her succulent garden.    When people see the passion and love for your business, it actually inspires them to work with you! You don’t need to hide behind the computer or a brand that doesn’t suit you. Your branding should represent you and your business in a way that makes you proud to show it off.    Tune in today to learn more from Lena about how the perfect branding can impact your business!    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Get the Resource Guide of 15+ Women Supporting Women: https://lenadesigns.studio/women-supporting-women Check out Lena's website: https://lenadesigns.studio/ Follow Lena on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lenadesigns.studio/ Follow Lena on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/lenadesignsstudio/_created/   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

I’m going to be honest, this episode is a hard one.    I haven’t recorded anything in a few weeks because I have been grieving. Two weeks ago, I lost my 11-year-old English Setter, Millie. If you know me or have been following me for a while, you know that my dog was a huge part of my life. I’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old and she has pretty much been my shadow since day one. I never could have imagined that the grief of losing her would be this great.    You guys know that it’s always my goal to always show up in a real and authentic way, so I wanted to share this incredibly difficult story with you to show you where I have been the last couple of weeks.    So in today’s episode of Leading Lady, I wanted to share my best advice for continuing to move forward and work on your business when you are in the midst of grief. The only constant in life is that everything is forever moving and changing and every day is a gift. Each day may present new challenges that we didn’t expect but we have to keep moving forward.    Gratitude is a powerful tool that we should all be using more. It feels good, heals the heart, and fills the soul. It’s so important that you allow yourself to be sad and feel that grief because you need it in order to move forward.    Tune in to hear more about processing your grief in a way that still moves you forward in your business.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

How do you show up in the world?    I have worked in the education realm for over 20 years and something that we teachers absolutely love is acronyms! We have one for everything.   In this episode of Leading Lady, I am sharing with you one of my favorite acronyms ever because it has helped me so much, and I really think it will help you too. I have used it daily for the last several years, and it has made a true difference in my life.    The acronym is THINK. With this acronym, I want you to think about how you show up in the world. How do you show up as a leader, as a business owner, as a woman, or as a mother?    As high-achieving women, we have to use our voices in our leadership roles. Whether it’s leading our family, our business, a boardroom, or just ourselves, use the THINK acronym and ask yourself if the things you’re saying are aligned with how you want to show up.    Tune in to hear what this acronym stands for, how it has helped me, ways to apply it to all aspects of your life, and how it can help you become the type of woman or leader that you have always wanted to be.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Let’s talk about the power of saying no.    By that I mean sometimes when we say “no”, we are actually saying “yes”. Now I know what you may be thinking- no means no, right? I get that!    By saying no to something, you are often saying yes to something else. In this week’s episode of Leading Lady, I am diving into why saying no to what doesn’t light you up means saying yes to the things that matter.    Oftentimes when I am working with clients, setting boundaries, both personal and professional, is something that they really want to work on. They want to achieve the highly sought-after work-life balance and find more time for their passions, and they know that setting boundaries is the key to making that happen.   Some people just struggle to say no to things that don’t feel right for them. But when you say yes to that thing, what are you actually saying no to? Are you saying no to the time and freedom to do the things that really light you up and fuel your fire?    In order to be your best, most authentic self, you have to prioritize things that align with your mission, vision, and values. That means being careful about what you say yes to so that you can prioritize the things that are truly important to you and your business.   Tune in to this episode to learn more about why it is so important to prioritize the things that truly light you up and learn to say no to the things that don’t.  Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Schedule a call with me: https://leadinglady-coaching.com/private-coaching/   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Do you suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction? It can look like stress incontinence, painful sex, or abdominal separation, and it can be an embarrassing problem to talk about. Many people assume this is normal at a certain point in their life, but it is not.    When left untreated, it can lead to a disconnection from your sexual self, and this can cause serious isolation and anxiety. Your sensuality and sexuality as a woman is one of your superpowers, and you don’t have to just accept that it’s gone.    Your pelvic floor muscles are a huge part of keeping this area of your life healthy and strengthening your pelvic floor is the first step to getting it back. In this episode of Leading Lady, I am joined by Julie Blamphin to talk about how to heal your pelvic floor in order to tap into your sensual and sexual self again.   Julie Blamphin has taught yoga since she was 12 years old. Now she empowers women to enjoy leak-free laughter and pain-free sex by stabilizing the core and pelvic floor. She is passionate about using movement and laughter to release the taboo around pelvic floor instability - which she believes is the key to rediscovering your sexy joyful self.    You don’t have to accept defeat! Your pelvic floor can be strengthened and healed so that you can be free of those symptoms and connect with your sexuality again. Tune in to hear more about how you can get started on your pelvic floor healing today.  Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Celebrate The Pelvic Floor Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/celebratethepelvicfloor/ Follow Julie on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/celebratethepelvicfloor/ Take the Pelvic Floor Discovery Quiz: https://celebratethepelvicfloor.org/pelvic-floor-quiz/ Visit Julie’s website: www.celebratethepelvicfloor.org Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Have you ever wanted to write a book?    I honestly feel that everyone has a book inside of them. We all have our own unique experiences that we have learned from and by sharing our story, we can help the next person in line. Writing a book can help you leave a legacy for yourself so that others can learn from you.   In this episode of Leading Lady, I sat down with Camille Campins-Adams, one of my Leading Lady Ambassadors, to talk about why (if you have been thinking about writing a book) there’s no better time than now to write one.   Camille is a bestselling author, author coach, and lover of books. She has a master’s degree in creative writing with a focus on nonfiction. While in grad school, she read and wrote tens of thousands of words per semester and loved every minute of it. Oh, and she did it all with two kids...ages three and under! She's truly committed to what she does!    Tune in to hear more about how Camille helps authors write their books, the benefits of writing, and how it can help you create your legacy.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Get the Start Writing mini-course: www.frameworkforabook.com/start-writing Visit Camille’s website: https://camillecampinsadams.com/ Follow Camille on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/campinsadams/ Join The Journaling Collective: https://journalingcollective.com Check out the Author Legacy Project: https://camillecampinsadams.com/group/   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

My book, Take The Lead,  is now available for purchase!    In this episode of Leading Lady, I am sharing how my book came to be. This project is something I have been working on for quite some time now. To be honest, it is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do but also the most rewarding.    I remember the day I decided that I wanted to start a book. It was years ago and after a long journey, it is so exciting to finally be here now.    Writing a book about your life and experiences can be a little scary. As I started to put my stories onto paper, I learned that it is a lot more complex than I had even imagined. I knew I had a book inside of me, but it took a lot of effort to put it all together.    I teamed up with my dear friend, Hannah, who is very well versed in the process of creating a book, and she was a huge help to me with making this happen. Thanks to her expertise, I was able to turn it into something that I am truly proud of.    I hope that you are able to get a copy and see that I poured my heart and soul into writing this book. It is raw, vulnerable, and honestly, very cathartic. It deepened my own understanding of myself and why I do what I do.    Make sure to tune in to this episode to learn more about how this book came to be, how this led to us starting Lofthouse Publishing, what you can expect from my book and more.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Get your copy of Take The Lead: https://leadinglady-coaching.com/take-the-lead-book/   Check out Unbroken Threads: https://www.amazon.com/Unbroken-Threads-Jennifer-Klepper/dp/1948051117   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Have you ever felt discouraged by dieting?    Many of us have been there. We are unhappy with the number on the scale so we start restricting and dieting in hopes that we will reach that magical number that will make us feel happy and worthy.    Diets detract from our health and wellbeing in a different way. Instead of being fully present and in the moment with our loved ones, we are in our heads worrying about our diet. There’s a lot of negativity and guilt that comes with that and it makes it hard to just enjoy your life.    In todays’ episode of Leading Lady, I sat down with Elizabeth Harris to talk more about the harmful aspects of dieting and the impact of intuitive eating.    Elizabeth Harris is a dietitian and Intuitive Eating counselor. She’s passionate about empowering women to find food and body peace with Intuitive Eating and body image healing.    By shifting the focus weight to wellbeing, Elizabeth helps women stop dieting and start living. Her motto is “self-care, not self-control.” Because food is meant to be enjoyed, movement should make you happy, and we’ve all got better things to do than count carbs!    Elizabeth holds a Master’s degree in nutrition from the University of Southern California. She loves to hike, garden, read, and travel the world—hitting every farmers’ market along the way.   Don’t accept the premise that weight equals health! That is all diet culture trying to tell you that you need to be a certain way but that’s not what’s important.    We all have difficult body image days, it's totally normal. It’s what you do with those days that’s important. Make sure to tune in to this episode to learn more about why dieting doesn’t work, why focusing on intuitive eating is biologically and psychologically healthier, the benefits of being weight-neutral, and so much more.    Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Resources Mentioned:  Visit her website: https://elizabethharrisnutrition.com/   Join the Health and Healing with Intuitive Eating Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/nutritioncoachingwithRDNElizabeth   Follow Elizabeth on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/elizabeth_harris_rd/   How to Break Up with Dieting For Good mini-course: https://elizabethharrisnutrition.com/how-to-break-up-with-dieting-for-good   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Have you heard the term “unicorn” used in the online business world?    This is usually used to describe someone who is good at many different things and ready to jump in and help solve any problem. Everyone wants to hire a unicorn!    In today’s episode of Leading Lady, I sat down with Emily Reagan, the ultimate unicorn! Emily saw a gap in the skills that aspiring digital marketers knew and the needs of business owners, and she made it her mission to help those future freelance unicorns learn the skills they need to know to become irresistible to clients.   Emily Reagan, mom of four, Air force wife, is a Digital Marketing Strategist and founder of the Unicorn Digital Marketing Assistant School.

Is your business aligned with your faith? It can be a little scary and vulnerable to be so open about your faith as a woman in business.   In this episode of the Leading Lady podcast, I sat down with Erin Harrigan to talk about how God has a different definition of success and he is waiting for us to embrace it and align with his assignment.   Erin Harrigan is a Christian wife, mom, and international coach/speaker, helping women tune out the world, tune into God's truth and turn up focus to redefine hustle & pursue success in God's way.   It’s easy to get discouraged and feel like you aren’t successful because your life just isn’t perfect like what you see on social media. It’s important to remember that no one is perfect. What you see online is just a highlight. Everyone has their own struggles and difficulties that many of us will never see.   We shine when we embrace those perfect imperfections so that we can step into our faith and align ourselves with God’s plan. To do this, you have to let go. Let go of your idea of success and let God lead you to where you need to be. It can be scary to surrender control, but it is truly amazing what happens when you do.    Tune in to learn more about how you can be a woman of faith in business, how to let go and let God lead, the 4 keys to aligning yourself with God’s plan, and so much more!    Resources Mentioned:  Download The 4 Keys Guide Check out the Be Led Retreat Visit Erin’s website Follow Erin on Facebook Follow Erin on Instagram Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

You don’t have to upend your life to make animal and environmentally friendly choices.    Topics like climate change and deforestation can be really overwhelming to think about. After all, how much of a difference can one person really make? The truth is, we need everyone’s effort. Taking steps to be more environmentally friendly will make an impact. Every small action adds up to big changes.   In this episode of the Leading Lady podcast, Crystal DiMiceli joined me to talk about how we can make a difference in our environment even with the tiniest of changes.    Crystal was that little girl who loved animals and brought home strays whenever her parents would allow it (that may still be her M.O.!). She was that teenager who watched a show about pollution and vowed to stop it when she grew up. But, she’s also that woman that loves to travel to far-off places on fossil fuel-guzzling airplanes while wearing leather shoes.    She may not be the perfect example of how to do eco- and animal-friendly 100% “right”, but she makes every effort possible. She does her research, makes conscious choices, and listens to both sides of the aisle. She wants to bring attention to the good things that are happening so that we can elevate and scale up these acts so that they, ideally, become the norm. She understands that nothing is black and white, there are many shades of grey. Although, she prefers to say many shades of green.  You don’t have to be perfect to be environmentally conscious. It all starts with one small change. We are so much more powerful than you may think, especially together. Make sure to tune in to learn how you can start making more environmentally conscious decisions in your life today.    Resources Mentioned:  Visit Crystal’s website Follow Crystal on Facebook Follow Crystal on Instagram Becoming a Force for Nature free guide Listen to the Forces For Nature podcast Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Is your business online?    I know many business owners drag their feet about getting online. It’s a huge commitment, but the truth is you need to be online if you want your business to thrive.    Think about it, when you are looking for a new restaurant or vacation spot, what do you do? Google it! You look to see if businesses and places look legit. This helps you feel better and more confident about what you decide to spend your money on.    Now think about your customers! Imagine how many people you are missing every single day by not having your website, branding, or social media accounts set up.    In today’s episode of the Leading Lady podcast, I sat down with one of my Leading Lady Ambassadors, Chrissy Rey, to talk about why you need to get your business online and the steps you need to take to make it happen.    Chrissy is the founder and president of Pongos Interactive. She has more than 25 years of experience helping businesses establish an online presence.   Tune in to hear more about the benefits of being online, how to properly brand your business, SEO, the importance of having a good website, and so much more.  Resources Mentioned:  Lena Designs Studio Follow Pongos Interactive on Facebook   Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!

Let’s talk about emotional intelligence.    In the Leading Ladies masterclass, we follow the acronym L.E.A.D.E.R. These letters stand for the top components that I believe make up the best leaders. There’s the learner's mindset, engagement, authenticity, dedication to purpose and mission, emotional intelligence, and resilience.    In this episode of The Leading Lady podcast, I wanted to talk to you about emotional intelligence. Many people think that this means that you understand your emotions or you are able to read the emotions of others. However, when I discuss it with my masterclass, I like to go a little deeper.    Certain key components make up emotional intelligence that you need to keep in mind. There’s self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation, empathy, and social skills.

Let’s talk about consistency!    In business, it is so important that you show up consistently. This is one of the most important factors of success, but how do you choose what platform to be consistent on? There are many to choose from, but you don’t have to be on them all if that doesn't feel right to you.    For me, it’s all about the platform that I feel most comfortable on. This is important for me to feel like my most authentic self. It’s easy to get lost in all of the latest social media trends and feel overwhelmed with trying to keep up with it all.    The truth is, if you try to show up on all of these platforms that you don’t normally spend your time on, it’s just not going to feel good to you, and it’s hard to stay consistent with something that doesn’t feel good.   If dancing in Reels or on TikTok doesn’t feel right, then don’t! There are no rules for what you do and don’t have to do to be successful in your business. You are in charge of your business choices.    Tune in to this episode of Leading Lady to hear more about how to find the right platform for your business, how to show up consistently, tips for choosing topics to share, and how to nurture your relationship with your audience.    This episode is packed with tips, you don’t want to miss it!    Resources Mentioned:  Book a coaching call Get The Top Five Mistakes I’ve Made In Difficult Conversations   Show notes available at www.leadinglady-coaching.com/podcast   Have you joined the Leading Ladies Facebook Group yet?!
