Imposter Syndrome or Fear of Success?
Imposter Syndrome or Fear of Success? Are you scared of being an “imposter” or the pressure that comes with being successful? We all look at who and what we aspire to be and try to figure out the steps to get to that level. This is not about “faking it until you make it,” but daring to put your foot on the gas and go. You will never know it all, be capable of doing it all, or have no competition. (If you think you have no competition, we need to talk.) Nevertheless, the worst thing you can do is fall prey to the comparison trap, focus on what you aspire to be, and allow doubt, limiting beliefs, and fear to paralyze you into stagnation. Even worse, instead of promoting and advertising your worth, you become invisible because you feel like a novice, making you an “imposter.” Tune into this podcast episode of CEO Talk for a few tricks and mindset hacks to help you overcome this and work in your passion and genius zone.

Think Outside the Box & Increase Your Revenue
Often when it comes to business and being a creative, some of us refuse to think outside the box. We get caught in “this is the way it’s supposed to be done; this is the way that everyone else is doing it, and this is what we know.” We do all of this planning and get completely confused about the actual art of what we are supposed to be producing. Tune into this episode to learn how to get out of this mindset & back to the art of what you’re supposed to be producing. This is a great episode for authors, coaches, and creatives, but the examples used can also be applied to any business. Learn the secret that #Facebook, #Twitter, #Instagram, and any social media knows and how you need to apply the same in your business/brand. Tune in Thursday, September 16th, at 8:00 pm EST.

CEO Talk: Is Your "Happiness" Sabotaging Your Success?
"You should be happy that you have a business." "In this pandemic, you should be happy just to be alive." "You should just be happy with what you have." Have you ever heard these words from friends, family, or colleagues? These statements, if accepted, are the beginning of your success demise. Being "happy" about something does not replace the need for progression or improvement. Being "happy" about your improvement does not mean you should stop. Don't allow your "happy" to cause you to become slothful, complacent, or not to progress. Tune into this episode of CEO Talk to learn how to overcome these limiting beliefs in your professional and personal life. Many businesses fold due to complacency and short-sightedness. Do not let this be you.

Is Your Fake Version of Success Killing Your Potential?
Is Your Fake Version of Success Killing Your Potential? Representation Matters. How you show up in your business really matters. As a man (or woman) thinks, so is he (she). What drives you in your business? How do you want the world to see you? What do you want to be known for? Are you teachable? Do you believe your own hype? Are you driven by envy, ego, greed, bitterness, or the like? Do you have the appearance of being highly successful but behind closed doors the opposite is true? This episode will challenge you to not only analyze the image you present in business but the key things that are derailing your success. A “polished version of success” will not hide certain sabotaging spirits that reek like manure. Don’t believe “the hype” and don’t drink the “poisonous kool-aid.” Tune in on Thursday, January 21st at 8:00 pm EST for the discussion.

Make your Election Sure: Fire Up your Success by Firing Up your Confidence Level
Make your Election Sure: Fire Up your Success by Firing Up your Confidence Level No, this episode has nothing to do with the Presidential election. Far too often I find entrepreneurs that are operating below the level of success they should have. One of the main culprits? Confidence. On this episode of CEO Talks, I will address how many entrepreneurs are hindering their success and a few tips and strategies to reverse that. If your head and heart aren't in the game, it will show in how you present yourself in the market. Don't make the mistake of allowing "stinkin' thinking" to cause you to miss the mark.

Is SEX (or lack thereof) Ruining Your Success? (For Entrepreneurs Only)
Is Sex Killing Your Success? Napoleon Hill states, “Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it.” Let's face it: if you're not careful, business can inflict havoc and chaos on your love life. The entrepreneurial life can be described as a roller coaster and it can take a toll on loving relationships. For those who are single, many put all of their creative energies into their work in ways they don’t in their intimacy. Work becomes the place for passion and home becomes the place of stability and safety. HELP! Tune in at 8:30 pm EST on Thursday, September 19th with our Featured Experts Amanda Testsa and Joshua Shea. Amanda Testa is a Sex, Love, and Relationship Expert who works with busy professional women and couples.

Are Social Drinking & Drug Use Ruining Your Success? When you've gone too far.
Are Social Drinking & Drug Use Ruining Your Chances of Success? After a hard day's work or difficult situation, do you relish a nice strong glass of ...? For many, weekly Happy Hour specials filled with discounted beverages and food choices are the ideal refresher to a stressful, busy work week. But just because something is socially acceptable, including prescription drugs and marijuana, doesn't mean that you haven't exceeded YOUR limits. Statistics suggest that roughly half of all alcoholics meet the criteria for high functioning alcoholism, which means they can maintain a career, support their family and have a strong social network, all while drinking to excess in secret. Furthermore, research shows that entrepreneurs experience more anxiety and stress than other workers, which puts them at a higher risk for mood disorders and substance abuse. Researchers have found that many entrepreneurs share certain character traits, like high energy, motivation, and creativity, that predispose them to mood swings, strong emotional states and possibly even addiction. Tune in on Thursday, May 2nd and hear from Alcoholism Expert & Award-Winning Author, Lisa Boucher. As a registered nurse, the child of an alcoholic and 29 years sober, Lisa can spot potential alcoholism in kids as young as 7. She believes childhood is the birthplace of addiction and says that doctors help perpetuate addiction by misdiagnosing and our drinking culture creates alcoholics. This is one show that you, your friends and family DO NOT want to miss.
