Life Boss: Becoming Unstoppable

Life Boss: Becoming Unstoppable

By Karem Mieses
With 20+ years of experience working with family-owned businesses to help them accelerate their profits and maximize their time, Business Strategist & Productivity Expert, Karem Mieses calls BS on the lies keeping ambitious bosses stuck. The questions she gets asked the most are “How do you find time to raise kids and run a business?”, “How do you decide what to do next?”, “Is it more important to sell or serve?” & her favorite “How can you do it all?” (b/c she doesn’t!). Join Karem every week for productivity hacks, a dose of clarity and a digest of what’s working for family businesses now.

What does it even mean to be vibrating at a higher frequency so that we can flow? Intuition, attraction, abundance, and vibrational energy are concepts that many masters across industries and fields of studies are claiming as secrets to their respective successes.

Using this method, she guides her clients to align their strategy, energy and actions, so they can achieve long term success with more ease in their soul guided business and finally find the freedom they seek with owning a business. In this episode, we discuss: [Min 05:00] What is feminine and masculine energy and how it affects our business intentions? [Min 10:34] What does it mean to be vibrating at a higher frequency to attract abundance? And what routines will help you get into your energetic flow?

EP049 - What to consider when hiring your next coach
Just because you’re in the coaching industry, don’t think you would never have a need for a coach of your own. Seems like a funny thing to think about but even the best coaches could use some help streamlining their businesses or having an objective third party to talk to about personal or family matters. Heck, even psychiatrists are required to speak to other psychiatrists on a regular basis! Business coaches can assist anyone with their businesses and often will find things to fix or change simply because they have an objective, outside viewpoint. Everything from billing inefficiencies to brainstorming product ideas, a business coach can be a non-judgmental sounding board who offers clarity and perspective.

EP047 - 7-steps to protect your energy with boundaries with Karem Mieses
At one time or another, EVERY entrepreneur has struggled with boundaries - even YOUR clients are probably struggling with this right now. In this episode, I share with you 7-steps that have work for me and my clients in protecting our energy setting boundaries. As a latinx, woman, catholic, and raised by a very chauvinistic father, I grew up as a people pleaser and I had to break with many emotional and mental barriers to living a life of my choosing - which means that I made a lot of people uncomfortable in the process. Your case maybe not as hard as mine used to be but if you: Are answering emails and calls at all hours of the day and night. Are saying "yes" even when you don't want to do something. Are letting people "pick your brain" for free. Are allowing clients to make late payments. All the while, feeling an ever-growing pit in your stomach. Because you want it to stop but don't know HOW. Then, you need to listen to this episode and set some kind yet firm boundaries. I discuss in this episode the importance of deciding what you really want and what you do not want, how to set up boundaries for yourself and for your team (even if the only one in that team is you) and dig deep into identifying, tracking and breaking with any time wasters. This is an intense/action-packed episode so I have an accompanying 21-pages planner to go over my complete 9-steps and not only set your boundaries but implement them.  My planner called: "How to Protect Your Energy with Boundaries" is normally $27 but for listening today enter code LIFEBOSS and get it half-off!

I’m sure that’s no big surprise to you. In fact, you probably browse the Internet at light speed, too, scanning titles and subheads, skipping to the bottoms of sales pages, and fast-forwarding through videos just so you can get to the next thing. The same is true for your readers, and if you want to capture their attention long enough to entice them to opt-in to your mailing list, then you have to keep that in mind.

Fast track to the resources here -> http://bosslifecafe.com/ Do you want more clients? Then you need more leads WHICH MEANS 👉🏼 you’ve got to build your email subscribers tribe 📩 How? Here’s the question that’s on everyone’s mind when they start thinking about mailing lists: “Which service should I use?”🤦🏻‍♀️ You’ve probably wondered yourself, and maybe even spent a few hours (or days, or weeks) researching your options. 😬 🛑Stop!🛑 . This is NOT the question you should be asking (yet). And it’s exactly why so many entrepreneurs get stuck in the planning stage of list building. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 Before you need to think about tools, you must ask yourself this: “How can I best serve my market?” Whether you’re coaching business owners, new moms, bloggers, or youth pastors, they have a need that only you can fulfill. And when you discover what that need is, you’ll have two valuable pieces of information: 🌟What incentive will be a true no-brainer for your ideal client to opt-in to your list? 🌟How can you use your mailing list to provide the best value for those who join your list? Don’t over-think these questions, though. Your opt-in incentive can be as simple as a resource guide or a short how-to video that answers a common question. And when it comes to providing value to your list members, keep TWO things in mind: 1️⃣ THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE 🥰 2️⃣ Be consistent, they are counting on you as the thought leader in your market to distill and provide the information, tools, and products that they want and need.

EP042 - Take a stand and raise your voice BLM
t's not easy to look the other way, silent, while this is happening in our backyard (still). These images and a tweet by author Ashlee Eiland (in show notes) last week moved me out of inaction. Sometimes it takes just one little push to shake us into taking a stand and for me, it was these. Here's is the thing, I'm worried, seriously worried, that this beautiful-magnificent Black Lives Matter movement is going to be washed away in a few news cycles. And I asked my self what can I do here, in my corner of the world to make a difference, to move the needle forward. So I shared in my email last week what we are doing here, and I also posted here in this group. This week I kept working on my promise and created a compilation of resources on my website hoping that it will motivate my audience to also take a stand & do something beyond sharing posts and rants in social media. (in the show notes) Also, this week's podcast is dedicated to this cause, because I have found that when we all do the little things that need to be done, the Big things finally become a reality. It's important to realize that we don't have to do heroics acts to be someone's hero. (Resources, books, movies, & important organizations in the show notes) So I challenge you today to find 1 to 3 things that you can start doing today to assure that the BLM movement lives up to its name. From my heart, Karem Mieses

EP040 - 4-steps to Ditch all the overwhelm 
So much to do😱 so little time 😩 How to enjoy your nights & weekends without feeling behind 🤯 (Fast track to all the free resources in our Bosslife Cafe -> https://bit.ly/productive-week-access) . Try this technique to empty your psychic ram (all those thoughts that don't let you think?!) so that you can enjoy life, no guilt, and boosted productivity for Monday! ++++ Here's the thing overwhelm comes from: (1) Constantly multitasking - our brain does not take a break b/c it’s constantly trying to make a decision (2) Indecision - when you doubt yourself the brain enters into a loophole. Many times we are indecisive due to lack of direction …. . For today, I challenge you to stop-multitasking and overworking yourself.. . B/c the reality is that unmanaged overwhelmed can lead to anxiety and that it's a problem... a box of Pandora that you don't want to open. Just google anxiety and health, and you'll start taking relaxing and having fun way more seriously 😉 . For now, explore these 1) Work in 90 min time block and take 15 min breaks 2) Make a list of things pending, aka "the parking lot," every time you need to stop, it will help you resume way faster. 3) At the end of the day, make a list of everything that you wanted to complete that day and circle the top 3. 4) Start with the top 3 the next day. . People who are overwhelmed not only spread themselves too thin, but their energy gets diluted. Don't be afraid of disappointing others for saying "no," we get one life to live and they may be as scared when it's their turn ;-) .

My approach to healthy work-life alignment is about STRENGTHENING your body and boundaries, SIMPLIFYING your daily routine, and SHINING your value and impact on the world. Without apology.

EP-029 What does it take to live unapologetically with Mary Hodder Ross
In episode 29, I had the honor to interview published Author & speaker Mary Hodder Ross about honoring our life choices as “unnatural” as they might be so that we can have self-compassion and live an unapologetic life. We talk about self-worth, forgiveness and rising from the asher to -like the phoenix- illuminate other people’s path to serve the greater good of all. Mary Hodder Ross is an author, writer, and poet. Last year, she published her memoir as her first book. She tells us her story who as a young woman that gave up a child for adoption. That one decision changed her and the direction of her life. She kept what happened a secret for 30 years, taking on shame, regret, and sadness in a lonely plight to not reveal the truth for fear of ridicule. She tells us that “I chose to finally write and tell my story because as a mature woman I realize that women are great keepers of secrets when we think the world will judge us harshly. We’d rather struggle in silence than heal. We’d rather hear the unbearable than being whole. I chose to shine a light on my story because it is the untold story of so many who deserve to be heard, to be seen and to be understood. My book is called An Unnatural Choice.” Mary ultimately believes that her message is a powerful inspiration to women and I absolutely agree. Being whole and living openly and honestly is transformational. It frees us and gives us joy. It connects us to our best selves and allows us to do great things in service to others. Ms Ross’s story has been touching lives and making a difference in ways she never expected, for which she is truly grateful. Are you ready to honor your choices no matter what and start living unapologetically? With the greatest courage, Let's dive in! Karem E Mieses, MST Productivity Expert | Change Agent | Organization Ninja SHOW NOTES/ RESOURCES =========== Get An Unnatural Choice by Mary Hodder Ross -> AMAZON A note from Mary Hodder Ross 1. I wrote my book first and foremost for my son that I gave up for adoption with the intent that he can know his story and with the hope that I will one day meet him. 2. I also wrote my book for other women - women who carry shame, sadness and regret in secret and often alone. I want to share my story with them. Inspire them to tell their own. 3. I want to shine a light on the frequently untold story of the birth mother and start a worldwide conversation from our perspective. 4. I want to let women see that we can be better, stronger and happier when we live honestly and authentically. 5. I want to reach women who are waiting to open up, who need someone like me to show them they are not alone. What we hide serves no one and destroys our inner sense of worthiness. It limits us. It leaves us feeling less-than. When we reveal our secrets others show up to say "me too" and we heal one another through admission and the release of hidden pain.” Contact Mary Hodder Ross as a Speaker https://www.maryhodderross.com/

EP023- Flow with the changes & stop feeling behind
Hello Rockstar!  In this episode, I give you the tools to not only to manage change but the tools to decide if you should consider the change or dismiss it. We dig deep into how to attain a balance (or flow) between persisting on our plans or letting them go without feeling like quitters.  There’s been so much “pressure” in the media about having all figure out for this decade that’s just starting that it’s normal to feel overwhelmed -even behind 😱-. But here’s the thing, we are only 28 days into the next 3650!!! That’s is .7% only 😂 so there’s absolutely no need to feel inadequate for not having it all figured out.  {#notetoself b/c I was starting to feel like this since what I envisioned that was going to be the best year yet through me a curveball right on Jan 6 and I’m still NOT 100% fine... In my process, I’m just getting used to a new reality ... (wow that was a long parenthesis)}  No matter how the year is going so far, we are ONE choice away from stepping into joy so that we live in purpose 🔥⭐️ So how to step into joy? into purpose? Focus on one thing (little or small) that you can do today (daily) that future you will be freakin’ proud of! In this episode, we’ll explore how to decide on that one thing and start finding your flow without losing your vision. I will use my own very recent experience about facing and managing change, like losing my father-in-law and changing the format of the show to illustrate practical examples. I can’t wait to hear from you the results of the experiment proposed.  Let’s dive in,  Karem E Mieses  Join me on the Facebook Group  _____ SHOW NOTES   How do we land the plane regarding managing change? There is an 8-step model to manage change according to Leadership Expert John Kotter, And it basically goes like this. For change to happen, We need to create the urgency Form a powerful coalition Create a vision Communicate the vision Remove obstacles Create short term wins Build on the Change Anchor the Changes in Corporate Culture  When we have a small business, are starting as an entrepreneur or are in the corporate race, most of the changes that come to threaten our plans come from outside forces.  Many times forcing us to be in a state of urgency that can turn into overwhelm and anxiety.  And guys this is very important to understand so that you stay focused on the ultimate dream/vision/goal. Here’s the thing, if we want to create a sustainable business or career, WE CANNOT TREAT every single shit that happens to us into a major change urgency. As long as we are clear on the vision, there are many things that life throws at us that need to be considered as detours but the destination stays the same. THE EXPERIMENT This is what I suggest, as I’ve been forced to go back to basics this month, with so many unforeseen variables thrown at me Get clarity on how do you want to feel? And how you do not want to feel ever again? What is your big vision for the next 6 months? What support do you need to make this happen? and from whom?

EP 014 - Building an Empire the Introvert Way with Kylee Hanson
You don't have to have a Type A personality, be extrovert or loud to claim what's yours in life. In the whirlwind of the digital age, we have found that there's a lot of pressure to be on display and showing everything that we are doing at all times. This modality is creating a culture where our self-worth is starting to be tied to how busy, in-the-know & in-the-show, we are. This needs to stop and we are here to cut the BS around success in this episode by featuring Ky-Lee Hanson, introvert, social changer, and boss woman at Golden Brick Road Publishing House.

EP 011 - Unstuck Yourself: What is stopping us when we know what we have to do?
In this episode, we explore the underlying reason for feeling stuck and not doing what we know we have to do to level up our lives. Some experts call this self-sabotage but Julia gives it another name with a different angle: Resistance. We do not stop on our tracks consciously, and as overachievers, we do not want to sabotage ourselves. However, it is important to be aware of the situations that trigger you to postpone the actions that will move you forwards - the "procrastiplanning", as Karem calls it-. Let's dive in!

003-NOT Another Show on the Perfect Morning Routine
IN THE EPISODE YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT: A new format today! Karem interviews Julia on why everyone is talking about the importance of a morning routine and if you actually need one.  How to decide what ‘should’ or shouldn't be a part of your morning to create a routine that truly feels empowering and sustainable  JULIA’S EXPERIMENT OF THE WEEK Treat your morning routine as an intentional practice for yourself that declares YOU run your life, YOU are in charge of how you feel. Take a look at how your mornings currently flow and identify how they make you feel. If you like the way that you feel and enjoy your mornings as is, drop the ‘should’s’ that you need your morning routine to be any different than it already is. If you aren’t happy with how you feel starting your day or are wanting to feel differently, start with ONE small shift you can make to your routine this week that feels so doable it’s a given.  RESOURCES If you know that it’s TIME for you to get ahold of your schedule and take back control of your calendar consider checking out Karem’s Declutter Your To Do List as a part of your new morning routine.

002-Protecting your Time, Energy, and Mood with Boundaries
IN THE EPISODE YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT: How to tell if you’re lacking boundaries or that your boundaries aren’t being respected  The reason boundaries are needed for you to show up as your most authentic, thriving self and how to start setting yours  Specific boundaries to set around your time, relationships, finances, social media use, and recharging needs to truly take control of your mood and life JULIA’S EXPERIMENT OF THE WEEK Create a boundary around screen time. Social media and Netflix are Ah-mazing when we use them intentionally. They also tend to be what we use to numb our uncomfortable feelings instead of tuning into what those feelings are trying to tell us. Create an experiment around turning off all electronic devices an hour before bed or limiting TV episodes to one or two/day. Use that boundary to see what emotions and needs come up for you when you’re not numbing to highlight what other boundaries might allow you to really thrive.  RESOURCES Start establishing boundaries around your time and calendar with Karem’s #1 Productivity Tactic: Declutter Your To Do List

001-Radical Responsibility and Embracing the SUCK
IN THE EPISODE YOU WILL HEAR ABOUT: Who Julia Balto and Karem Mieses are, why we’re here and what we want to share with you here on the LifeBoss show.  What it means to ‘embrace the suck’ without wallowing in it Practical steps to take radical responsibility for your mindset, beliefs, actions, and habits JULIA’S EXPERIMENT OF THE WEEK This is a really helpful tool for the next time you notice yourself stuck in a headspace of blaming, comparing, or feeling resentful, especially when it feels like a disproportionate emotional response to what’s actually happening. Instead of judging yourself or stuffing the feeling down, pause and say ‘Hmm, interesting. I’m feeling X.’ Give yourself permission to explore what you’re feeling, examine the story you’re telling yourself, and identify what you might need in order to validate and shift the way you feel.  KAREM’S EXPERIMENT OF THE WEEK 1) Practice stillness. Seek out moments without music, audiobooks, scrolling on your phone, making to-do lists, etc. Find creative ways to sit in quiet for 30 seconds to 10 minutes and allow your thoughts to come and flow.  2) Establish a ‘Gratefulness Roll Call’. This is one you can practice with the whole family. Make a daily practice of focusing on the big and small things that you’re grateful for right now, especially the little things and not waiting to celebrate just the Oscar moments.
