079 - Designing Your Business to Fit Your Life Through Planning, Executing, and Systems with Annie McCarty
Annie is the owner + founder of Efficiently Annie LLC. After earning her MBA and with a decade in corporate marketing and operations experience under her belt, she ditched the power suit in pursuit of something more fulfilling. Led by her knack for project management and process organization, she developed a reputation as a dynamic and dependable virtual assistant. But it wasn’t long before she began to realize the need for creative businesses owners to build a stronger foundation of simple, streamlined, repeatable workflows that would sustain them as they evolved and inevitably grew. In this episode, Annie is sharing so many little nuggets of wisdom on how you can truly find the balance you need to design and live life on your terms. Annie is a master when it comes to systems, especially (my favorite) Asana, but her journey wasn't always as smooth sailing as it is today. As she dives into what success means to her, and only her, Annie also touches on her many moments of pivoting in her business and why giving yourself permission to be you will provide the room your business needs to grow and evolve the way it's supposed to.

076 - When Consuming Content is Actually Bad for You (and what to do about it)
The other day I was talking to one of my clients about her podcast queue and how long it was, not to mention the 100+ unread emails sitting in her inbox from email lists she’d subscribed to. She was feeling totally overwhelmed by it and guilty that she wasn’t able to “get to it all.” So I shared a story with her from a few months after I started my first business. I was subscribed to over 1000 email lists and tried to read as many of them as I could - with a handful that I absolutely read every day. And this was back when people were regularly sending emails 5 days a week. There came a point where consuming that much content was actually undermining my confidence and ability to run my own business and I had to let go of them, stop consuming so much, and start taking action.You see, when I was focusing on trying to get through all that content and never miss out on a single piece of advice or tip or roadmap (or whatever else they were selling me), I no longer saw myself as the intelligent, confident person I'd always identified with. I don't want any of you to go as far down that rabbit hole as I did -- so in today's solo episode I'm sharing my story of how I took back my expertise and confidence when it came to consuming the right type of content that serves me and my business, and began living life as the best version of myself. Being subscribed to 1000+ emails, opting in for #allthethings and feeling completely lost and overwhelmed Taking back my power and seeing myself as the expert on my business How to recognize when something is no longer adding value, just adding more noise How you can give yourself permission to clear the clutter turn down the volume on all the noise How to let go of the content that's no longer serving you and your business (aka - stop hoarding content & knowledge) Recognizing what you actually need right now + going to find it Want to chat about how you can take back your expertise or let go of the constant FOMO?  DM me over on instagram - I’d love to chat with you about it!  If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the voices in your inbox or on your podcast queue, I want to challenge you to really evaluate the content you are consuming and determine if it's actually adding value or just adding noise.  If it's adding noise, get rid of it ASAP. If it's adding value, keep it but give yourself permission to NOT have to read/listen to it all.  Trust that the right content will get in front of you at the right time for you to use it.

051 - Turning Your Creative Outlet Into a Business That You Love with Ashley Hasty of Hasty Book List
Turning Your Creative Outlet Into a Business That You Love with Ashley Hasty of Hasty Book List Ashley Hasty was burning out, trying to make a 4-hour (each way) commute work with a job she loved in a career she loved teaching fashion history - and she needed something to help relieve her anxiety and help her focus on the positives. So she leaned on a creative hobby to distract herself on the long drives and help her find joy again.   She began listening to audiobooks and sharing her thoughts her blog, one book at a time. Soon she started interviewing authors and book jacket designers. And after a while authors and publishers started sending her books to read and share with her audience. In the midst of this, she hit a breaking point with her 9-5. So she gave herself permission to work on Hasty Book List exclusively and found she loved it as a business too. Now Ashley works part-time as an consultant for Universities on fashion history and manages Hasty Book List, where she blogs, does bookstore tours, interviews authors, and more!   Today Ashley's sharing how she managed her burnout, stayed open to possibilities, and ended up turning her creative outlet into a daily blog and business.   READ MORE at www.burnoutproofyourbiz.com     WANT HELP ORGANIZING YOUR CONTENT WORKFLOW?

The Power of Saying "No" If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, there's a good chance it's because you are over-scheduled and over-committed. Those things happen when we say yes to too many things and aren't discerning about the opportunities that come to us. We just take everything that comes our way and hope for the best. But by learning to say "no" to the things that aren't a good fit, we actually create more space for the things that we really want to say "yes" to.     Want help creating boundaries and learning how to stick to them?

How to Stay Productive While Working from Home with Shaunae Teske & Sarah Schrader We've all been there - we start our business thinking, "This is great! I'll finally have the freedom to do what I want when I want." And it's great for a week or two. But then we realize we actually have to get stuff done on a consistent basis. Figuring out how to be your own boss and stay productive when there are a thousand things around the house calling for your attention can be a job in and of itself. But with a little practice and some discipline, you too can be a productive work-from-home entrepreneur!   In this episode my guests, Shaunae Teske & Sarah Schrader, and I share some of our experiences and tips on how to actually stay productive when you work from home, how to create routines for success and remember to eat and take breaks, even how to create a schedule that allows you to be present during "work" time and present during "life" time.   Shaunae Teske & Sarah Schrader, are the co-creators of the creative business owner focused Creative Legacy podcast, which focuses on helping creative entrepreneurs build their business while leading a life of intention, joy, and adventure. Separately, they are successful business owners - Sarah a brand and marketing graphic designer and Shaunae a photographer & educator. And today they are sharing all their secrets for staying productive while working from home.   In this episode... The struggles we face when we work from home (complete with anecdotes from Sarah & Shaunae) How to keep a schedule and why it's so important Why you need to remember to eat and take breaks and how to remember to take them How to stay accountable and productive when you don't have a boss directing your work Creating morning and nighttime routines to set you up for success + what Sarah & Shaunae's routines look like How to separate your office and your home space - even if you don't have a separate room to work in How to set and communicate your schedule and boundaries with those that share a living space with you. How to plan for time off - vacations, important events, self-care, etc. - and why you should be taking time off even as a new business owner I give myself permission to... take a break midday to refuel my body and rest my brain.   Quotes "Just because you work from home, doesn’t mean you can’t have a schedule." "Try to figure out the times throughout the day when you’re most productive." "A lot of people have the most brainpower in the morning." "Having a deadline is helpful for you and your clients." "It’s important to keep your main tasks in front of you all day long."

A Different Approach to Goal Setting In 2019 It's the time of year when we all start thinking about our goals for the next year.

007 - 5 Bad Habits That Are Seeping Into Your Biz
Have you ever noticed how we tend to run our businesses like we run our lives? We incorporate both the good and the bad. That’s true with our skills and our habits -- especially our habits. That’s a good thing for our good habits - like checking the bank account periodically. But sometimes, it’s not such a good thing. Today I want to spend some time talking about the bad habits we have that are seeping into (and really hurting) our businesses and how to fix ‘em. HIGHLIGHTS: How saying “Yes” too much and too often is sucking away all your energy Why setting your expectations too high is keeping you playing small How indecision and staying on the fence is actually making a choice to stand still Why you need to spending time on yourself - even if it's only for a few minutes a day How trying to do it all on your own and by yourself (aka - not asking for help) is driving you toward burnout fast PERMISSION SLIP:I give myself permission to notice how my habits are affecting my business.

004 - Simple Financial Workflows for Stress-free Money Management
Bookkeeping and taxes are some of the least fun tasks we have to do as business owners. Digging through receipts to figure out all your totals, what can be expensed & what can't, how much you owe (or, by some miracle, how much you get back) -- it induces hot sweats, nightmares, and yelling matches.

On today’s episode I’m teaching you how to develop your own super simple financial workflows that can help you finish your bookkeeping in under an hour each month, complete your taxes in just a few hours - not days - at the end of the year, and take the stress out of doing your books.   HIGHLIGHTS: How to keep your receipts organized so bookkeeping is a breeze Why you need to be using a bookkeeping/accounting software How to develop a financial workflow that works for you and that you’ll actually stick to PERMISSION SLIP: I give myself permission to spend time thinking about my financials.

003 - Setting Expectations & Boundaries with Your Clients to Protect Your Time, Your Energy, and Your Heart
  If you’ve worked with clients for very long, you know the need to set and stick to good boundaries and expectations from the beginning. Without doing that, projects have many more delays, clients get confused and frustrated, you get confused and frustrated, and your relationship with your client can become strained, if not confrontational. Not to mention you’ll likely want to pull your hair out at some point. But you don’t have to experience any of that with a little forethought and planning. We all need a little structure, and our clients are no different. In today’s episode we explore how to go about setting, communicating, and sticking to boundaries and expectations with clients.   HIGHLIGHTS: What Boundaries Should You Have? When clients can expect to be able to reach you and/or receive a response from you How they should communicate with you (phone, text, email, messenger app, project app, etc.) The exact scope of the project What you will and won’t do How professional or relaxed your relationship can be If you work in person - what the protocol is for seeing each other in public What Expectations Should You Set? Level of professionalism, tone, respect Response time on your side of the project and on their side of the project How to send you files/collateral (mail, email, dropbox, form, etc.) A timeline for the project and how they can help keep the project on track (plus what happens when they miss deadlines) Payments - how to make them, when they are considered late, what happens if payments are late (late fees, project delays, contract in jeopardy, etc.) Meetings - promptness, advance notice for need to reschedule/cancel, policy for no shows or late cancellations (such as no refunds or no show fee) How often they can expect to hear from you throughout the project (weekly updates, only if needed, etc.) How to Share Your Boundaries & Expectations: Written in your contract! Written in your welcome packet (even if this is electronic) Written in your emails and messages throughout the project - reiterate the boundaries and expectations often Written in the email confirmation after they schedule a meeting and in all reminder emails Verbally in meetings - including your consultation and first meeting If possible, visually in picture or graphic form (symbols, flow charts, etc.)
