Ep. 108: Is it REALLY skill or COURAGE that you need?
How many times do we look for a solution and become frustrated when we don't find it? Arrrgh. Could it be that SOME of those times we are called to go and BUILD the solution we've been seeking? This is often how it works out for us in the Buckley home. Being a trailblazer and legacy-builder requires some unique skills, though. Of course, more than anything, this requires COURAGE! Courage to try it and be ok with it NOT being perfect out the gate. Courage to create something that you've never seen but likely will be a solution for TONS of others. That's what we're doing with our brand new LIVE event for Married Entrepreneurs! It’s been YEARS in the works (meaning, we’ve been talking about it…). Now is the perfect time to FINALLY move on it. So many couples are READY to grow and scale like never before. And we’re ready to help! In episode 108 we're taking you behind the scenes of building from SCRATCH and the mental exercises it requires to stay the course. We're also sharing how we use our differences as husband and wife to work FOR us rather than AGAINST us (like they used to!) 👀 Here’s to living powerfully in sync, OLand Sway P.s. Are you on our waiting list for the deets of our Live Event? If not, don’t MISS these crazy goods that we’re throwing in JUST for our crew (that’s you!)

Ep. 107, Part 1: Influencer Interview Series with Pedro and Suzette Adao
Sometimes we think when we have to make a thousand changes in business that we are doing something wrong. That’s not  true. In fact, it’s often a sign that you are doing something RIGHT! It takes TIME and courage to keep going even when it FEELS like failure. Pedora and his wife Suzette know this story ALL too well. In episode #107 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, they’re sharing how they lost one million plus dollars (after making it in their first business) and how they refocused and worked together to rebuild their legacy. They now are building the 100X Aacademy and impacting the countless lives of other entrepreneurs Visit them at www.100xacademy.com or www.100xconference.com

Ep. 106: Annual Planning TOGETHER Builds Amazing!!
Sometimes, you gotta be good with WHAT works best for your family.​ It can be frustrating to try to fit into a mold that you were only made to break. This goes across the board...especially building legacy TOGETHER. And sometimes it takes a few tries (or more than a few) to get it right. But don't allow the multiple attempts tell you that you're on the wrong track...in fact, you're likely closer than you've ever been before. Keep going. For example, we NOW do our annual planning for the next year in the Summer of the previous year, and it's PERFECT for us right now. It didn't start that way. We started doing them in the last quarter because we thought that's what you're 'supposed' to do... Little did we know, this same thought-process of doing it like 'them' permeated in other parts of our lives and actually stifled our creativity. So, today, we're sharing how we do OUR annual training together and how we've dodged headache-bullets by having it. We also share why we do our annual planning in the Summer and the amazing benefits it brings for the rest of the year. It’s pretty transformative how it plays out! Here’s to living powerfully in sync, OL and Sway Question: Do you ever find yourselves doing something a certain way because that’s how ‘they do it? We’d love to hear!

Ep. 105: Anniversary Roundup: 10 Lessons in 10 Years
We knew each other 10 years before we got married. (But that’s another story for another time) When we first married, we slept on four twin-sized air mattresses. We piled them on top of each other and put them together so technically, we had ourselves a California King… Ayyye! But the mattresses would deflate while we slept, and we’d often awake in a sea of material on the carpet. The burgandy cheap sheets we used barely held it all together, but they did a great job of bleeding on our white walls...that part. The last 10 years as marriedpreneurs has been NOTHING short of a journey. We’ve spent serious time thinking about what we can share and how to share it. We decided the most value to you guys would be transparent lessons that have encouraged us when we didn’t see a way out, faith that kept us when God told us to move out of our home in a week (all while opening a new multiple six-figure contract to manage), believing in our purpose even through unexpected job loss and a love/hate fertility battle...this journey is just beginning, but today we celebrate 10 years of unity in marriage. Hear our top 10 lessons in the last 10 years of marriage on Episode 105 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast. We’re also shared how vision has been glue for us, even when only one of us had it. Here’s to living powerfully in sync, OLand Sway P.S. Question, how long have you guys been married? Hit ‘reply’ and let us know! We’re always curious to learn more about our marriedpreneur fam who’s on this journey with us!

Ep. 104, Part 1: Influencer Interview Series with Jamie and Nathan Cross
If you’ve been following us for a bit, you know we are all about sharing strategies, skills and STORIES that can be the answer to the thing you’ve been praying for! Speak of praying… We’re gonna share an amazing story about our new friends. (We have the same business coach and were able to connect during a business training in Denver last month). Jaime and her husband Nathan  knew it was time for a shift in their lives when they found themselves struggling all while knowing they were called to so much more! She was desperate and prayed to God for an answer to have more fulfillment, impact and income. God answered her! He gave her a BILLION DOLLAR business blueprint in a DREAM. The business started with soap ya’ll… SOAP! Since then,they’ve worked hard to lay the foundation, and  their company is on its way to an 8 figure business and quickly scaling into the vision she saw in her dream. In Episode #104 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, you’re going to get the GOLD out of our convo with Jaime and her husband Nathan. You DON’T want to sleep on this...it’s sooo good (we’ve already listened to it like 3 times…as if we weren’t the ones doing the interview. LOL) In fact, the beauty of their story is how they incorporate their roles and give each other space to ‘fly’ as Nathan put it. They also share how they work in the business together, the importance of hiring help around the house and being properly aligned in marriage and business through Biblical principles...it’s 🔥🔥🔥 Here’s to living powerfully in sync, O.L & Sway P.s.

Ep. 103: The 3 Questions To Ask Each Other BEFORE Hiring
Something that we don’t talk about much is our rocky ‘hiring’ journey...it started off ROOOUGH ya’ll.. We started hiring help before we could even afford a full-time employee… It started with just a few hours a week. We’ve hired (and released) several people along the way. But each time, it got better and better and better. So, ‘No’ this is NOT our first time around the ‘Hiring Rodeo’ (is that even a thing?) LOL. We’ve learned some COSTLY lessons when it comes to hiring, and one of them is around the convo we MUST have BEFORE we even LOOKING at hiring. That’s the juice we want to share with you today! Also, in this episode, we share one HUGE mistake we made while growing our team (and how we’re fixing it...) Plus, hear three of our favorite questions to ask each other in order to have the BEST pre-hire convo. We are rooting for you as you implement higher more efficient systems and scale should you desire. Here’s to living powerfully in sync, OL + Sway P.s.

Ep. 101: Playing at a Higher Level is INTENTIONAL!
So, can we be transparent for a moment? Sway: There was a time that I consistently doubted if we were going in the right direction by working together. OL: Doubting our direction wasn’t a big thing for me, but I DID struggle with doubting the LEVEL that we were called to PLAY on. Sway: Yeah, I totally get that part too. But something seriously changed along the way with my mindset. There were mini confirmationations that reassured our steps. Spending the last few days in Denver with  Russell Brunson teaching us EVERYTHING from scratch was yet another milestone for me. OL: Yeah, it was a huge milestone in the Mile High City. If you are doubting your call to play at a HIGHER level, and let me say, you may not CALL it that, but if you’ve ever questioned yourself, take a listen to episode 101 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast. Sway: We’re sharing one of the EASIEST signs that confirm you two are on the right path and will transform your mindset. Many overlook this sign when it’s staring at them in the face..don’t let that be you guys. Instead get the fuel you need to play HIGHER. The world is waiting on YOU! Also in this episode, we share the first time that we made this mindset shift (and how it changed everything for us). Plus, hear why we continue to look at things this way even though it made us feel a bit vulnerable more than a few times.

Ep. 99: The Layers Of Legacy As Married Entrepreneurs
The first house we purchased a year into our marriage was a new build. Another family actually started building it, and about 75% of the way through, decided not to finish it. However, they already put tons of upgrades that we would have wanted, and we didn't have to get through the tedious process of having to manage the contractors everyday to be sure they were on schedule because it was nearly complete when we purchased it.  We were both new to owning a home and owning a new one at that.  There were SO many perks that came with a new build that we really weren't aware of until we crossed that road. For example, the major aspects of the house came with a standard 10-year warranty. So, when a tornado came through, we were covered. If the HVAC unit went out, we were covered. If there were ANY kind of major issues, we were covered.  The thing is, we were a bit clueless about how awesome that was until we needed it! The same concept applies as marriedpreneurs + legacy builders.  We can go through life working together and never realize that we have a superior edge as married entrepreneurs to build ‘layers of legacy'. In episode 99 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast we're talking about: Why marriedpreneurs have a unique advantage to building a legacy (and simplifying the first step you need to take today.) How to protect your future legacy, especially when you need to know what opportunities you should take.  How to create a ‘compound interest-effect’ with building your legacy. This episode by far is one of the MOST essential in understanding the power of being a marriedpreneur. We hope it encourages you guys to keep going and keep building! What are your thoughts on legacy building as it pertains to marriage and entrepreneurship? Share with us in IG stories or just hit reply to this email. We want to hear! We're rooting for you!

Ep. 98: How To know When It’s Time To Scale
Guys, this past season has been a bit hectic. We initially thought it was because things were happening all at once, but there was more to it.  Our full plates weren't something that was going away any time soon.  It was imperative that we paid attention to the deeper shift happening.  We prayed.  We discussed. We observed.  Now, It's time we scale our team so we can be in a position to have a life that is truly enjoyable and not STRESSFUL! Fulfilling not frustrating Satisfying not straining. In episode 97 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, we're sharing: The sure-fire way to know it's time to scale (note: if you feel like it’s time, its probably PAST time!) Three ways we're finding great talent and coming up with some pretty amazing interviews (this simple strategy is a deal breaker!) How we've divyed out roles during this whole process (from doing the interview, to referrals, to creating the job descriptions, etc. this thing requires partnership on every level!) We're hoping this episode is helpful as you guys create boundaries and align with your BIG vision.  Listen, we REFUSED to be stressed doing what God called us to do...that's backward.  So, let's make a pact to enjoy the journey together... cool? Cool. OL and Sway   P.S. If you haven't downloaded our free Marriedpreneur Map training that puts all of the steps to building a strong Marriedpreneur legacy TOGETHER, grab your free download HERE.

Ep. 97: How we got through a rough transition
If you listened to our last episode (96) we did a run down of the three main categories of marriedpreneurs. However, what we DID NOT share were those in-between-rough spots when we were transitioning from spousalpreneurs to couplepreneurs. (In short, this happens in a marriage when it starts off with only one entrepreneur and turns into TWO full-time entrepreneurs working together!) It was a rough season for us to be transparent. In the end,however, it worked to our advantage (but at the time, we second guessed everything). Our main goal is to encourage you as you and your spouse may be transitioning as well. So, in episode  97 of The Marriedpreneur Life podcast, here's what we're spilling the beans on: How we made the decision TOGETHER to not return to a 9-5 after being fired from one The one strategy we used to create multiple revenue streams (not because of sheer desire but because of sheer necessity!) How we handled our struggle with roles, responsibilities and lost identity during this sensitive transition… and the communication hack that got us through! We're getting pretty raw in this episode. We know that transparency transforms, and that's what we're after.  We'd love to hear where you guys are in your journey and how we can continue to offer support.  Connect with us over on IG at Marriedpreenur Life  Until then, keep walking powerfully in sync and in purpose, OL & Sway   P.S.

Ep. 96: 3 Types of Marriedpreneurs
Regardless if you’re the only entrepreneur in your marriage, and you feel alone at times, or if you two are down in the trenches together, the business will undoubtedly impact the marriage! We’ve lived through the three categories of Marriedpreneurship, and each season brings its unique challenges and benefits. So, in episode 96 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, we’re sharing our story of living through these phases and what to look out for. We’re covering: How to know which kind of Marriedpreneur you two are in now  The unique benefits of each category of Marriedpreneurship (you may be surprised by some of these- most take them for granted). The biggest challenges we’ve faced in each category, and a simple remedy to overcome it. You will likely see yourselves in one main category and possibly more than one as you transition and grow. Our hope is that this episode will further equip and prepare you for your next season. We know how lonely this path can feel, and the truth of the matter is: YOU’RE NOT ALONE! Be encouraged! We’re rooting for you! OL and Sway   P.S.

Ep. 95: Our New Media Partner And Your Visibility Plan
My mom was on the plane (in the air) when it caught on fire..no lie.  She was the only one who saw it initially. Thankfully, it was on the inside of the plane so it could be quickly contained.  I was in disbelief when  she recanted the story to me like it was something out of 007 or something... Well, the point is that SHE was the one to identify, and once she alerted the crew they were able to address it immediately with an extinguisher  You see, what if the extinguisher was not visible? What if they couldn't find it?  What if... Point is this: VISIBILITY IS CRITICAL! It doesn't really matter how much value you have to offer if no one knows where you are...right? In episode 95 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast we're sharing How we recently landed a pretty major media opportunity for FREE and how we will be using it the FULLEST to impact nearly 1.2 million families across the States! The difference between a visibility plan and an actual marketing plan Why you NEED a visibility plan in your business and an easy way to get started We can't wait to hear how you enjoy this episode and PUT it to use ASAP! in the mean time, we're rooting for you!

Ep. 94: Trust Issues- A Wife’s Perspective
As crazy as it may sound, when I married my husband, I did NOT fully trust him.  But trust is a 'funny' thing... I didn't have doubts of him being unfaithful, but I DID have other doubts and lacked trust in some other critical areas. For example, at the time we had two totally different money mindsets and how to create and grow wealth. Me being an entrepreneur my whole life, I saw things a bit differently, more frugal if you will at times.  Yes, he'd been in the banking industry for a few years at the time, but I knew the kinds of money decisions he made up until that point, and to be quite frank, I had serious concerns.  It wasn't just financial concerns (although, those were there) it was more about my emotional security and us having a clear way to resolve an issue when we vehemently disagreed.  There was NO way we could have successfully ran ANY kind of business together with at the time with THOSE kind of trust issues.  Thank God, things have changed (and are still changing for the better!) We had to woooooork on this stuff for years though... But, I'm gonna take you behind the scenes today on how we've gotten so much growth in marriage and business as a result of a deeper trust with one another! If you guys are working through this right now, there are some staple steps you want to have in place that will ultimately impact the quality of your marriage and your business...facts! In episode 94 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, I'm sharing: A sure sign you may have a trust issue with your spouse and may not even know it and how to fix it in ONEs strategic convo The different kinds of trust issues to be aware of and how to shield your marriage from broken trust The main way deeper trust impacts how we do business now, even with differences (which is totally normal!) I hope this episode not only shines some light on trust issues from a wife's perspective but also equip husbands with tools too! Let me know over IG stories if it hits home for you!

Ep. 93: Buying Followers vs. Buying Ads
I know we don't like to talk about it much because, well, bruised toes will be the outcome  BUT if we're totally transparent, we MUST confront the 'buying-followers elephant. 👀 I recall scrolling through IG one day and saw a 'friend' all-of-a-sudden skyrocket to tens of thousands of followers But just the week before, the account was barely opened. We get it.  Growing can be grueling.  It seems the faster way is the right way...and sometimes it is. Some would argue that if you buy ads, you might as well buy followers. Well, we have A LOT to say about that in episode 93 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast. You'll learn: Why you won't see us buying followers, but you'll absolutely see our ads sooner or later.  The lifelong GOLDEN lesson learned ONLY by working for your followers What we told our clients when they decided to not 'technically' buy followers but hire someone to grow their account.  It's gonna be interesting to hear your experience and thoughts of buying followers (maybe you have and you can speak from that perspective...) Either way, we knew this was something that should absolutely be confronted when we started having more convos about it with our clients- not to mention we are hit up in our inbox. We believe in you two and are rooting for you! O.L & Sway   P.S.

Ep. 92: Scarcity Thinking Is More Subtle Thank You Think
I'm sure by now we've all heard of the scarcity vs. abundance thinking.  and, to be quite frank, it's a legit thing.  The thing about scarcity thinking is you don't realize you have it (on some level) until you are confronted with others who don't. Scarcity (or limiting beliefs) will do just that..LIMIT your growth.  It's like putting a cap on your own potential.  Crazy, right? The great thing is, limiting beliefs can in fact become UNlimited beliefs.  FACTS.  (ask us how we know).  On episode #92 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast we're not holding back and sharing these tried and true strategies to breakthrough whereEVER you guys are on your journey. We're talking about: The SURE sign you may have a limiting belief (and you likely don't even know it).  The different ways to confront your spouse's limiting beliefs based on his/her personality (it makes a huge difference!) The NUMBER one way to confront and CHANGE your limiting beliefs to UNlimited beliefs (it's a process, but it's soooo worth it) There's some LIFE changing content in this episode because these strategies have LITERALLY transformed our marriage, business, communication,  clientele, bank balances, our inner circle and  ...get the point? It's changed EVERYTHING for us- so we're sharing this with YOU! Can't wait to hear how your life and family is impacted by these simple yet profoundly powerful strategies.

Ep. 91: It’s Likely You Don’t Even Have A Business If...
My mom taught me how to read a map back in elementary school. Sway here- I promise you, she ALWAYS had a map of whatever area we were driving to.  Long before Mapquest (ya'll remember that?👀) or Waze , I was her personal compass while she drove.  It was like some kind of rite of passage for me to know how to read it as she followed my direction. I remember pulling them out a few at a time from the hot glove compartment (it always seemed to be summer time when I was doing the most 'map reading' LOL) Well, she would always tell me first to find where we were located and then find where we were going...without those two, we would be lost... That's exactly how it is in business. We've found that so many couples operate at a 'winging it' level that it becomes the norm.  So, there are just a few things that we would say are necessary to have a LEGIT business, and the TOP one is having a STRATEGY, a path for where you are going.  In episode 91 of the Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we're sharing GOLD (again!) about: How to know if your strategy is real or if you're pasting pieces together How to create clarity for your BIG goal together (and to still crush it even when it doesn't go as planned) What role your husband and wife personalities play in completing the overall strategy  Yeah, we're really 'going there' in this episode...may step on a few toes but our heart is to see you two win - not just in the end but DURING the journey.

Ep. 90: When Unsubscribes Are Actually A GOOD Thing!
I remember during our first few launches how our unsubscribe numbers starting climbing... We were so nervous and thought we had to do something to get them to come back and be a part of our amazing tribe. But we had it all wrong. We were so focused on pleasing others that we failed to be ourselves.  It's like we were scared to even ask or offer anything to them... How crazy is that? You have something to offer that will help change life as they know it but you are fearful to offer it because you don't want them to leave....what kind of twisted thinking?.... Thank God for freedom from fear! Today, when we do launches or make an offer, we actually look FORWARD to getting unsubscribes. Here's why... Those who unsubscribe aren't buyers anyway..and if they DO buy,  they would make poor customers (and who wants meloncholy whiners trying to shake the amazing vibe in your tribe? 👀) So, episode 90 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast we're coming after one of the biggest elephants in the entrepreneur's mental space. Here's what we're sharing: The REAL reason people unsubscribe and why you should help them How we're forcing subscribers off our list this week and we are GEEKED about it!

Ep. 88: Is Imperfect Action Better Than Perfect Inaction?
We're in the middle of launching our Marriedpreneur Growth Kit, and neither OL or I could have anticipated the fulfilling (and at times intense) journey when creating it. Wow! It's been so much fun to watch couples reply and email us! That's what we hoped and planned and built it for, but it's still the best feeling in the world to watch.  Ok, One MORE last thing, over on today’s podcast Episode #88, we’re sharing how and why imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.

Ep. 87: What Couples Get Wrong About Business Differences
Working with your spouse in business? We need to answer a question that we are often asked about working with your spouse when you have business differences. 👀 Here's the thing: We used to try to change each other under the pretense of being on the 'same page'. But same page doesn't always have to mean same perspective. More than anything, you want to use your business differences as an advantage and know what things to push for and what things to let be. That's the same in any other area in marriage too but for some reason many couples treat differences in business like it's the end of the road. It isn't. Yeah, there are rough patches, but that's to be worked THROUGH rather than ran away FROM. All of this ties into the bigger picture of building a lasting legacy together through your business. We're tackling this topic on handling business differences on episode 87 of the Marriedpreneur Life Podcast.

Ep. 86: Confronting The Theory That Marriedpreneurship is Toxic
Today, it's a little bit of a rant we would say...    Probably the biggest hangup couples have with regards to starting and scaling a business together right now, is the belief that marriage and business don’t mix and will always end up in regret.   It's pretty easy to come to that conclusion when: We live in a rush-and-hustle culture that presents their own definition of success vs. each couple defining success for themselves. #powermove You two are so different and have varying views of how to move forward in business. (which really isn’t a bad thing…) It’s challenging to get a simple date night in without talking about business. It’s easy to turn into roommates. You're constantly running doing mostly non-revenue activities because they need to be done, and you’re not taking time daily to tweak your systems.  The logical conclusion is...working together is drab, so you might as well go at it on your own.  But before you nod your head yes, you'll want to check out our podcast episode #86 today. Our emotional rants are unusually logical. Go check it out! O.L. + Sway P.S. We have a SUPER awesome email coming your way later this week. It's called "What Couples Get Wrong About Balancing Business Differences." In anticipation of the beta launch of ‘The Marriedpreneur Growth Kit’ next week, we know people may be wondering if this is the exact same issue as dealing with communication problems in marriage/business. The answer is yes and no. Watch your inbox on Thursday!

Ep. 85: Watch Us Do A Pressure Launch In Real Time Pt.1
I recall a few years back when we had the largest emotional set back to date. We were super excited about the program we were about to launch. However, what we didn't have was a launch strategy.  We invested more than ever before, and we thought our marketing was going to be effective, but the issue was we were just putting pieces together- it wasn't a real launch system. Over the years, we invested in more coaching, and things became a lot clearer as far as the NECESSITY if having a launch strategy.  It's NOT what we originally thought.  What tripped us up was when we saw different influencers launching and it seemed to be successful. However, we were only seeing a fraction of the work- not what was really going on behind the scenes.  Recently, in our 2ccx coaching program, we were given the ins and outs of a pressure launch campaign (a way to pre-sell and release a new product). We. are. geeked to implement it to what we have already been doing. So, we want to take you behind the scenes of how we're doing our launch.  If you're interested in seeing the steps we use for this launch of our New Marriedpreneur Growth Kit (formally the Quick-Start Kit) then take a listen to episode #85 of the Marriedpreneur Podcast.  We're sharing how:  The first thing we always do before we launch ANYTHING Why it's important to have a proven template when launching (it's more than what you think) How much time you should give yourself to do a thorough launch - this part trips up many marriedpreneurs- but not anymore! This is a good one ya'll.  You may want to take notes and start implementing quickly to save time and make more on your next launch.   Here's to living powerfully in sync, OL and Sway

Ep. 84: When To Stop Doing What’s Working
This past Sunday was monumental. We were installed as Pastors. Never saw it coming. Never sought it out. More about that in a future email… Now, we’re realigning our lives and calling to both the marketplace and ministry (and marriage of course).  But we feel like there are other couples who are walking this unique call out as well.  With that being said, we're changing some things.  Whenever you're called to do something differently, people won't get it and think you're crazy. The cost of leadership is going first AND going against the grain. This past month we had to make yet another decision that - to some - sounds backward, but we know it's the cost of walking in a greater calling.  If you two are doing well and feeling like you're in your flow, that's great! However, if you've been seeking the next step to understand how to make progress towards the next goal, then we've got good news for you.  Here's what we're diving into:  How your chemistry in marriage can dictate your next business move The one question to ask yourselves before making any growth changes  Why we've decided to turn down a $40k opportunity... Hope this encourages you two to keep building. Greater is coming.  Here's to living powerfully in sync, OL and Sway Buckley

Ep.83: Weeding out draining clients- it’s not them, it’s you
Burnout is an interesting thing.  Sometimes we get burned out because of the TYPE of clients we choose to work with. Not all clients/ prospects are created equal.  So, if you're feeling drained or unfulfilled with your lack of progress,  it's not them really...it's you.  As entrepreneurs and leaders, it's our job to train people how to treat us.   In episode #83 of the Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we're sharing with you the steps that we implement to focus on our DREAM clients (which are way better than your IDEAL client). You're gonna hear about: How our his/hers approach is totally different but still helps us get to our goal as a team  The real reason why you may be attracting the wrong clients (and don't even realize it) This episode is full of practical insight that will boost your confidence and clarify your value. Check it out, and if it's helpful, be sure to let us know in a review or in our IG stories. Just tag us at @MarriedpreneurLife Here's to living powerfully in sync, O.L.  & Sway P.S.

Ep. 82: Sixty Five Years Of Marriage And Counting...
So this past week ,we spent time with friends and family in Dallas. With it being Father’s Day weekend, we especially couldn’t pass up the opportunity to slide through our grandparent's house. Those moments  are rare. This month they will celebrate 65 YEARS of marriage- that’s like a lifetime..right? So, of course, in true Buckley form, we asked them for a quick interview so we could share with you some of the nuggets they often share with us behind closed doors. We promised them it would be short and simple, and we would only ask ONE main question.  You’re gonna want to hear about it and how they’re still rockin’ with each other through businesses and losing children and so much more… It’s pretty powerful.  Check out episode #82 of the MarriedpreneurLife Podcast and let us know your biggest takeaway over in your IG stories. Just tag us at MarriedpreneurLife Here’s to living powerfully in sync, OL and Sway P.S. You really WILL be encouraged by their amazing insight!

Ep. 81: When he stops pulling his weight- a wife’s POV
We're gonna take you behind the scenes of some VERY transparent convos we've had over the years… and we STILL have these convos…  Ever since the hubby got fired about six years ago, we’ve had the saaaame conversation about him pulling his weight, BUT it’s not the same section of the thread.  We move along. Different seasons require different parts of this convo to resurrect.  Although he’s no longer dealing with his new identity as an entrepreneur, he does sometimes get so laser focused in one area of the business that he may drop another (important area) and I pick that part up.  It’s ok the first few times, but the moment I feel that he thinks it’s supposed to be that way, I have to speak up.  In episode #81 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast, we are GOING there...well, actually  I’M going there  since I’m doing this one solo mode….and you’ll see why. I have a feeling that I’m not the only wife who has ever felt taken for granted, so that’s why I’m sharing how we deal with those seasons and have seen tremendous change over the years. In this episode, I’m giving you a fly-on-the wall-ear-hustling-kind-of insight of: Why getting stopped by the police revealed to me how severely my husband was dealing with his identity as an entrepreneur (not to mention this came from an inappropriate question asked by the officer… I was livid.)  The unexpected blessing of me feeling taken for granted… it’s not what you think.  How our super recent confrontational convo about me still feeling the same way went down, and why I’m proud of my husband more than ever. Man, this one is a real-one...just like the others but different though.  I’d really like to hear your feedback too… Let us know your thoughts over in the comments on your listening platform- that would be dope.  Thanks in advance.  Peace,  Sway P.s. If you know of another marriedpreneur couple who can benefit from this goodness, I really don’t mind if you share it… :)

Ep. 80: Separation Time...
By the time you read this, it’s likely that we would have just landed our flight to Dallas. This trip is coming off the heels of some of our most intense seasons in business yet.  We just finished our beta Love and Launch 10 Week Intensive- and it was just that… Intense. A few weeks ago I (Sway) made a choice to step away from the business...not permanently though...just for a few days (which felt very permanent at the time).  I flew down to Florida to stay in a beautiful villa with mostly strangers who became sister/friends. We had private chefs, yoga, nutrition classes, beauty regiments, and some serious spiritual breakthrough.  I was so serious about stepping away for the time I was gone that when clients and prospects pre-scheduled convos with us- I canceled them all.  I chose ME this time.  Both the hubby and I have different experiences, of course, but in episode 80 we want to take you behind the scenes of how we prepped for this time of separation (and how we’ll prep for future ones too). There were some clear frameworks and understandings we needed to have in place in order to make it work.  We believe every marriedpreneur couple should engage in this kind of separation on a regular basis.  You may be surprised at the incredible results. Check out the episode, and let us know if you’ve ever separated ‘on purpose.’ Ciao, Sway (+ O.L.)

Ep. 79: When She Makes More Than Him
This season was a challenge for us. We had to deal with each other in a delicate way to be sure we would pass the test. There’s two view points, and each one plays a role. On today’s episode 79, we’re taking you behind the smiles and sharing how we dealt with this season and how we’re actually stronger because of it. Maybe you two are there now, or maybe you’ve yet to experience it- either way, we hope you find some gems in what we’ve shared. Take a listen and let us know what you think! Best, OL and Sway

Ep. 78: When Your Expectations Oppose Your Desire...
Not too long ago we were a part of a training session that totally changed how we pursued our goals. Myron Golden laid down some serious knowledge in how we can use our expectations to skyrocket our productivity.  He shared tons of strategies, but we just started implementing one.   We saw results pretty quickly, and so we started teaching it to our coaching clients. Yesterday, we had a check-in/training with them and EVERY SINGLE ONE of our clients is experiencing RECORD breaking results with this one strategy! So, we KNEW it was time for us to dive into with you.  We want to see you two WINNING too! Whether you've reached multiple 7 figures, or if you're just starting out, this principle will 10x your mindset and production.  Here’s the jest of it: Desire and Expectation are NOT the same! You get what you expect. But you don’t always get what you desire. The goal is to align your desire with your expectation.  It takes skill and practice.  We’ve created a podcast episode to share practical ways we’ve implemented this principle with you. It’s episode #78 and it’s called When Your Expectations Oppose Your Desire.  We’re rootin’ for you,  O.L. and Sway

Ep. 77: Marriedpreneur Night Routines - Turning It Off...
There’s a popular lie that’s been floating around for generations. We’ve all heard the statement ‘it’s not how you start but how you finish.’ That’s only half true.   Unfortunately, too many married entrepreneurs often struggle not just with starting their days off productively but also finishing them strong too. The idea that finishing strong means doing one more task will somehow bring added satisfaction is seriously flawed.  Sway and I have learned the importance of finishing strong even if there are more things we want to complete. That’s tough, and the temptation to drive ourselves into the ground with work is always present!  In episode 77 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re uncovering the truth about how to have an uber, productive day and finish strong- even when there’s more stuff to do. Here’s a few highlights from episode 77…  What if I can't shut my brain off? Is it important that the two of us share a wind down together? We always love to connect and hear back from you two!

Ep. 76: Marriedpreneur Money Making After-Noon Routines
Do you ever feel tethered to your laptop? Sway and I both felt life our computers were joined to our hips...lol Finally, we implemented a routine that made a huge change in our marriage and business. It doesn’t take a lot to make a major difference in your business. (It can even show up in your business bank account.) Before we implemented our afternoon routines in this new way, our days were kinda dragging around 3pm.    Are you familiar with the 3 o’clock wall?   Do you have that feeling like you just want to just shut it all down but you can’t? This happens to a lot of entrepreneurs. Sway and I had to remind to each other how important it was for us to create an outlet in the afternoon that wouldn’t make us feel like we were slacking off. “It’s all about being refreshed in the middle of the day.” In episode 76 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re spelling out how we shifted our productivity to make the workday that much more enjoyable. Here are a few highlights from episode 76  What’s the main difference between a morning and afternoon routine? What are the must-have components of a  money-making afternoon routine and how to create/tweak one for yourself? We love to hear your takeaways and feedback!

Ep. 75: Marriedpreneur Morning Routines (the last 30 days)
I never bought into morning routines much. Sway always had morning routines… well, she’s a morning person.  I guess you can tell by the flow of sentence that I AM NOT...lol We’ve all heard and read memes on IG about how important it is to own the morning. But is this true, and does it have any merit? We’ve seen major changes to our business and marriage over the last 30 days as we’ve merged and honed our morning routine down to a ‘science.’ But that meant that I had to get waaay out of my entrepreneurial comfort zone. So, how did I make a practice of doing something that I didn’t think was connected to our business or our overall well-being? If our businesses were going to thrive, then we have to thrive.  Moreover, if our marriage was going to thrive, then how we spent our time was going to have to count. That’s where our conversation had to match our commitment ( that went for both of us). “It’s all about the commitment.”  In episode 75 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, We’re sharing the power we’ve gained just in the last 30 days with our Morning Success Routine.  We’re sure that this is directly connected to us being on pace for our first 7-figure year! Here’s a few highlights from episode 75…  What is a Marriedpreneur morning routine? How is it connected to your ability to grow and scale your businesses? Does scaling our business require both of us to share the same morning routine? Check out this episode and share one element of your morning routine as married entrepreneurs… Let’s get it!!

Ep. 74: How Your Differences Can Explode Your Businesses
There’s a thin line between passion and frustration! It’s the same, thin line between business and entrepreneurship. When Sway & I started working together in ‘business’, we were stepping on each other’s toes and there was definite points of frustration.  It’s funny how just a slight difference  in views can make working with your spouse frustrating. No doubt, it’s because you’re both passionate! I know we saw things differently...and still do to some degree. Sway has been an entrepreneur the entire 20 years I’ve known her. (The one time she worked for a company, she later convinced them to bring her on as a consultant..she can’t help herself...lol) I always worked a 9-to-5 until 6 years ago and came into entrepreneurship as a ‘business person.’ This was the point of tension for us at  times. It came down to our different viewpoints. All viewpoints are pre-wired and shaped by our experiences.  Your views on the ‘business’ will either make you profitable and peaceful or stuck in business with no growth. In episode 74 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re getting right down to how we made our different perspectives work so we could scale our business and enjoy the journey together.  Here’s a few highlights from episode 74…  Why you two are different and what that means for your business How to embrace the business person vs entrepreneurship differences Where your secret to scaling your business lies This episode will show you how Sway and I leverage our differences, and how you two can build some even more amazing together!

Ep. 73: Real Growth Requires Growing Pains
Sway: This year, we’re on track to hit 7 figures. Crazy.  Right? But this level of rapid growth is bringing real growth pains (which we welcome)! O.L: One of my old business associates called me and told me he had a TON of new business for me. Another guy we worked with in the past blew it with his clients which resulted in me getting all of the overflow. Sway: This means that my time is in higher demand and MUST BE restructured. Our business systems and time discipline are definitely being tested. O.L.: Marriedpreneur Life is flourishing,  it feels like we’re being stretched on all fronts. 2019 has shown itself to be unpredictable already, and it’s only May. This means we’re feeling the stretch in not just business but also our marriage more than ever before.  So, how do we sustain the growth and make the best decisions for our marriage and our businesses? That’s where our recent conversation came in. Sway reminded me about the importance of time tracking and prioritizing rest (even if it’s in the middle of the day).  In episode 73 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re detailing how we’re managing this season of growth with strategic forms of discipline. Here’s a few highlights from episode 73…  What we’re doing to maintain less stress even at high rates of growth on and offline The MOST critical areas to watch over as your business grows..it may not be what you think.  What growing pains are telling you about your business (they tell you more about yourself than you may think…) We’re excited to start documenting our journey with you guys again! We hope this episode will not just motivate but inspire you to continue to forward!

Ep. 72: BTS Marriedpreneur Map Step #8
Do you ever find yourself tethered to your laptop trying to grind it out? It’s funny (kinda) earlier this month I told Sway that I wasn’t sure I was breathing.  She said, hmm sounds like you’re taking shallow breaths.   I said yep, that’s it! Have you ever done that?  It’s like you ‘forgot to breathe.’ Lately, Sway and I have been on a roll when it comes to stepping away from our work in the middle of the day.  This has proven so rewarding, and I feel like it’s helped us to be more productive. Actually, a huge part of why we’ve been able to step out and take extended lunches is because of scaling and ascending.  We’re less involved with the day-to-day which has helped us to work more on the business instead mostly working in the business. Whew, talk about a game-changer! Today was all about lunch with my wife and mom-in-love as we sat in the sun on the patio enjoying fresh lemonade, burgers and great conversation.  I’m not even going to try and explain how awesome those grass-fed burgers were….WOW! Normally, this would’ve been much tougher to do without systems and structure.  In fact, if you two plan on scaling your business - the time to implement a system that will support that growth is yesterday. In episode 72 of The Marriedpreneurlife Podcast, we’re sharing how we went from being tethered to our laptops to mid-day lunches all while converting more of our dream clients. BOOM!  Here’s a few highlights from episode 72…  Isn’t my website and business email technically a system? What if I have a system but my business has plateaued and stopped growing? If you don’t do this one thing, you’ll never scale. If you’ve enjoyed this episode, please share inside your IG stories and tag @MarriedpreneurLife for a shoutout!

Ep. 71: BTS of The Marriedpreneur Map: Step 7 Continuity
It’s a common mistake for many married entrepreneurs especially when they’ve been working so hard on perfecting their ‘core offer.’ After years of missing the opportunity to serve our tribe more powerfully-we finally began learning and implementing our system for serving our clients on an ongoing basis through continuity programs.  If you two are looking for ongoing ways to serve your clients while producing a residual income stream (and you don’t have a solid continuity program in place) take a listen to episode 71 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast- it’s covering step #7 of our Marriedpreneur Map.  So, how do we continue to serve our existing clients with ongoing value beyond the core offer? That’s where listening intently and carefully to our community came in. Our community reminded us of where their challenges lie and how much they valued getting continuous gold from our experiences. “It’s about the continuous gold you two are constantly learning along your journey.” In episode 71 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re detailing our key lessons into developing a continuity program with ease as we walk our clients through the same process we’re using.  Here are a few highlights from episode 71…  Does everyone need a continuity program?  The biggest common mistake when implementing continuity (it’s not what you think…) Distinct roles for husbands and wives when implementing a new revenue stream (and why you need to be aware of these NOW!) If you two are in the ‘market’ for implementing a new revenue stream, come through and get some insight on how we walk our clients through this exact steps so they can achieve more income AND more time freedom!

Ep. 70: BTS of The Marriedpreneur Map: Step 6 His & Her Sales
We literally were ready to throw in the towel. Both of us.  It was right after doing our first big business launch and based on the poor results, we thought we miss understood what we were supposed to be doing (even though at one time it seemed so clear). The big issue was we were looking for people to convert into leads but we were doing it all wrong! There’s one thing we’ve learned about converting leads to clients who invest, that’s in the power of delivering real-time value. Do you find that getting your market to actually engage and buy from you is a struggle? Did a business coach/guru make you think that launching an online-only campaign was going to bring customers into your funnel? We’ve heard the same sentiments as well, but that’s only half the story. (Married entrepreneurs need a two-pronged approach to higher conversions and scaling.) So, how do we attract more leads that actually convert, even though we’re just two people? That’s where having a system and a strategy for getting directly in front of your market makes the difference.  I’ll borrow a quote from one of my coaches from years ago (Jonathan Sprinkles):  “Points are powerful but connection is key.” If you’re going to convert more leads into clients - getting in front and connecting with your market has to be the bloodline of your efforts. In episode 70 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re answering some of our top questions about getting higher conversions. This is step 6 in on our Marriedpreneur Map! Here are a few questions we’ve answered in episode 70…  Why FB may not always be the best platform to start scaling.  Why you're likely not charging enough and how that impacts your conversion rates.   Husband and Wife Roles: Can anyone sale? And should we both play a role in the sales department? We had such a great time sharing these gems with you guys. We are being more intentional about sharing content that will not solely help your business but content that will help you two operate your business together.

Ep. 69: BTS of The Marriedpreneur Map: Step 5 Lead Gen System
 A few years back we created a track for Dallas’s Startup Week (at the time it was sponsored by CHASE bank). As leaders of the track, we had to wear several hats, including marketing for our track.  We set up radio, television and magazine interviews to cover the event. We used the same visibility and traffic skills that we learned years earlier in our own business.  We had to work as a husband and wife team and divvy up our core team to get the job done.  As a result, we got TONS of organic (free) traffic from media visibility. We also ran FB ads to be more targeted with our audience. The response was overwhelming. In episode 69 of The Marriedpreneur Life podcast, we’re diving into Step #5 of the Marriedpreneur Map which is your CLGS. We’re sharing often overlooked strategies we use with our clients when they get to this step. Here’s a few: How to know which traffic will work best for your business. What to expect in traction and response time within the first 30 days of incorporating new traffic streams Steps to getting massive visibility for free and use it to build your CLGS. #gamechanger If you’ve been searching for new strategies to generate the right leads on and offline and want to cut your ad cost by diversifying your traffic sources, definitely check out this episode!

Ep. 68: Cultivate
It wasn’t too long ago when I received an inbox ‘pimp marketing’ message from a fellow sister in business.  This inbox message boiled my blood to the point where I literally wanted to help sis out. She basically was like, “My business and I can help you. My rates are blah blah blah.” I really wanted to ignore and not reply, but instead, I took precious time to speak back.  I said something along the lines of, “Hey! Hope your day is great. By the way, would you like to know about me and my business so you can know how to best serve me- if you can even serve me at all?” Thankfully, she was receptive and immediately replied with an apology and explained how she actually needed help with her lead gen. Wasn’t surprising at all.  But how many of us focus so deeply on selling that we overlook creating relationships that make it hard for our tribe to NOT buy from us? It may not be to the extent of this example, but you may be struggling too. In episode #68 of the Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re sharing: An easy way to know if you’re ‘pimp marketing’ without even knowing it (you may be shocked by this one) How to create a cultivation system that nurtures your tribe and ascends them up your value ladder where they are asking you for more How your husband and wife roles play a part in cultivating your business This episode covers step 4 in the Marriedpreneur Marketing Map, and as always,  it’s full of golden nuggets.

Ep.67: BTS of the Marriedpreneur Map Step3: Value Ladder
  The toughest part about entrepreneurship has been removing ourselves the day-to-day so we could keep focused on the bigger vision. For years, we got so bogged down with ‘maintenance’ that we weren’t profitable and we plateaued with our clients. We had to learned how to implement systems and bring on team members to help execute. ( While this helped,something was still missing). So, what was the plan keep the processes running while continuing to deliver transformation to our clients? That’s where we had life our heads up from working in the business to start working on the business.  During this period one of our coaches emphasized the importance for us to have business model that would ascend our clients to greater value. It’s all about the business model of delivering higher of levels of value. In episode 67 of The Marriedpreneur Life Podcast, we’re detailing our transition into thinking about our business as visionaries and value leaders – which means we’re talking all about the most important aspect of growing a more profitable business that we’ve created, to date. Here’s a few highlights from episode 67… What we’re doing differently as Marriedpreneurs in our business What’s included in the The Marriedpreneur Map (i.e. The Ultimate Marketing Blueprint) that makes this possible How we’re planning to scale and hit 7-figures (thanks to business model that gets away from the day-to-day tactics in the business) If you enjoyed this episode, please share inside your stories and tag @MarriedpreneurLife for a shoutout!

Ep. 66: Behind The Scenes Of The Marriedpreneur Map: Step #2 - Your Money Message
It was important for us to do it-but it didn’t come easy. It was frustrating trying to communicate but NOT BE HEARD. It was hard to serve at a high level, generate leads and make money without it. Developing our message to call out our Tribe to time.  It took more time than it should’ve because we didn’t know our who or how to speak their language. One of the toughest things for us to do in business was [GET CLEAR ABOUT MARKET]. Early in the process we were targeting married couples.  Not realizing how broad of a market Married couples were. As time went on with great coaching we learned how to ASK and LISTEN to our market.   We learned who we DIDN’T want to work with as well as who we DID want to work with. Most importantly, we learned who in our market has learned to cope with the pain… and we learned who truly wanted to get rid of the pain! 3 WAYS TO CLARIFY YOUR MESSAGE The first (and often overlooked) step in monetizing your message.  The single clarifying question you must answer that solidifies your money message (it’s not what you think…  Why social 'likes' (alone) don't create buyers, but here's what does (and most overlook this simple perspective)   If you two are needing to redefine your money message, then get into this episode asap to start getting more clarity and connecting the dots.

Ep. 64: The Marreidpreneur Map: An Essential Guide For Married Entrepreneurs
Honestly, we struggled for a while.   This is what most entrepreneurs don’t talk about.  We often see them online declaring their seamless message but we have NO idea how much work went into that level of clarity... Nobody talks about that part. Here's a little insight from our experience nailing down our messaging: For us, It was tooooough getting to know exactly what our market wanted first. We knew WHO  we wanted to serve (married entrepreneurs has always been the constant) but HOW to serve them most efficiently was the tricky part. We spent a few years defining and redefining our messaging for our dream client. During this process, we struggled to put all the pieces together. Until something happened... On episode #64 of the Marriepreneur Life podcast we’re getting pretty transparent about our journey. (At times we wanted to throw in the towel but we’re SO glad we didn’t). When we started this business journey we began one-on-one clients and then a beta group that was heavily focused on the business side. But then we saw such a great need for teaching systems to be more efficient, so we revamped and started from the relationship side of market the following year. But THEN couples were asking for the business strategies more than relationship systems. Arrrghhh.. So, we rebuilt and refocused to where we are today which is blending both the business systems for scaling and efficiency systems (that protect date nights!). Mind you, this happened over a few years! It's been a wild path but we are SO grateful that we didn't give up!! On this journey, we’ve realized 3 vital areas needed for married entrepreneurs to grow and scale their business while preserving their harmony … (a happy profitable marriage actually). So, in this episode, we’re covering: The exact systems that are necessary for working together powerfully. (they are S i m p l e) How NOT to give up when hitting a ‘brick wall’ (there’s some gold in that lesson).  How to create profit when you're still clarifying your messaging ...it’s so doable! We sorta took the long way around the block to learning these realities.   But today, we've taken all of our experiences and created the BEST of both worlds for you two to accelerate your growth together! We’ve created a unique blueprint which is the perfect blend of marriage and marketplace! (It’s about to drop tomorrow and you guys will be the first to know about it!! Can’t. Wait to share!!)

Ep.63: The WRONG business model had me on BEDREST!
When I first built my staffing firm I thought it was amazing because (well, it paid my way through college for starters) But as my seasons in life changed, my business model remained the same.  The BIG issue with that is that my business appetite changed- I wasn't as willing to do the things I used to do when I first started the business.  My capacity changed. My appetite for business changed. The thing that used to be a blessing started feeling like a burden. But the burden part happened after we got married.  My sweet husband had to walk me through that dark season. It became so bad that I was on bedrest. I was burned out.  I wasn't scaling the business, I was just sustaining it. It was painful.  I was ready to throw in the towel. I didn't have a plan B and I didn't care too much either. But after answering some deep emotional questions, I realized this: It wasn't the business that I detested, it was the business model. If you're seeking to scale and needing insight on next steps, take a listen to this episode.  In episode 63 we're sharing how: ➡️ To know if  it's time to  change your business model in order to scale ➡️ One simple question that exposes if you're working too hard (This one is an eye-opener) ➡️ We smoothly transitioned models by doing the opposite of what most coaches recommend (it has worked beautifully for us!) We’ve shared some pretty intimate details of a breakthrough conversation that I will never forget. Hope this helps you on your journey! If so, be sure to share your takeaways in your IG stories and @ us at Marriedpreneur Life and we’ll be sure to shout you out!  If you guys have been producing ‘struggle’ posts and your engagement is down, it’s likely a symptom of a deeper issue. It’s a sign that although you may KNOW what your market needs, you may not be sharing what they WANT (which is what they invest in).

Ep. 62: We’re Just Here For The Comments👀: Why Your Would-be Tribe Is Clueless About You
I’m just here for the comments. We can all agree that the internet has no. chill. It’s difficult to go 24 hours without seeing a funny or controversial meme. Between babies, pets, and crying athletes there’s no shortage of comic relief. The only thing funnier online than the posts themselves are the comments. The first time I read a comment that said ‘I’m only here for the comments’, I knew there was something deeper to give attention to.  As we started going through our own posts on social media we began looking at those same traits that sparked high engagements.  Because let’s admit it, it feels really good when people talk back to us on our various platforms…(so long as it’s positive...lol). Sway and I used to observe ( dare I say study) what kinds of posts would get high engagement and how others got people talking back to them. If engagement is important in the physical real-world communication then it’s likewise important in the virtual world too! If you’re struggling with getting your message to resonate with your tribe and sometimes you feel as if you’re talking to crickets, be sure to take a listen to episode #62. It will change your approach and your ROI...trust. In episode #62 of the Marriedprenuer Life podcast We’re covering: ➡️ How your engagement impacts your rate of sale (that’s such a thing) ➡️ Visuals matter (the saying, ‘man looks at the outward appearance’ applies here too) We’re sharing our strategy to stand out without needing a massive following in order to monetize. ➡️ How to post about your business, without posting about your business (yes, it’s a thing and it’s gonna rock your world) These points are essential to your business growth as you two navigate the maze of entrepreneurship. After years of posting ‘struggle’ content that barely got any engagement, we knew something had to change ...that’s when we took a deep dive to get the skills (which we’re still experimenting with) but we want to take you guys on for the journey… you ready? If you guys have been producing ‘struggle’ posts and your engagement is down, it’s likely a symptom of a deeper issue.

Ep.61: How We Landed Our First Client Together
  After being fired from the bank, we were thrusted into full-time entrepreneurship and it wasn’t a walk in the park.  There were some common perils to either not getting in touch with or losing touch with our dream client, but at THAT time, we were just trying to replace the lost income.  Looking back though, there were  4 main questions we asked ourselves in order to land that first. This is rarely a one time process of defining.  The reality is that markets can shift and they often do.  To be clear, it's often the way the market seeks their desires that can shift your messaging. Here’s what we’re covering in ep. 61 of the Marriedpreneur Life podcast: ➡️ Where to start if you’re in the process of defining or redefining your dream client (it’s not as obvious as you think- most do it backward) ➡️ How to handle your lowest hanging fruit if it isn’t a part of your BIG dream- ie teaching entrepreneurship to 8th graders wasn’t a part of our long term goal, but it served a purpose in launching us ➡️ How to craft messaging for your market that actually resonates even if you’re switching markets Although we had a ball teaching entrepreneurship together, today, we were happier serving our dream clients as we continued redefining who they are!  In the new episode #61 of the Marriedpreneur Life Podcast we're sharing the same  4 questions we use for defining and redefining your dream client on your way to your next contract. As you two build continue to revisit these questions. If you're needing help with your strategy implementation and would like our Marriedpreneur Life team to equip you with a blueprint and accountability, apply to work with us.

Ep. 57 God Became An After-thought...And We Didn't Even Know It...
As we sat in the audience listening to the financial wins and strategies of the speakers we were told to do whatever it takes for however long to reach our money goal. We bought into it. It sounded noble. It sounded right. Until our plan clashed with our gut. We started to realize subtle changes in how we made decisions.  We no longer talked about what God would want, but it started to become about what we wanted and our goals. Our definition of success changed.  Our hearts changed...and we didn’t even know it.  We hit a wall when we were challenged to take one day of rest a week from our Hebrew studies teacher (ironic how in the midst of this we were still trying to learn more about the ancient truths of the Bible..but our hearts were far from it) That ONE challenge challenged everything we started to stand for. It brought so much light to the hidden idols of our hearts that we didn’t even realize we drifted as far as we did. In this episode, we’re sharing: How we’re balancing pursuing our 2 Comma Award and still trusting God along the journey One not-so-obvious sign that screams  God is an afterthought in your business (and how to instantly fix it) Our daily prayer/habit that helps re-align us with true success As always, this particular episode is gold (IMHO).

Ep. 56 The Truth About Serving vs. Selling
Sometimes, as entrepreneurs, we can often feel stuck between SELLING OR SERVING. This mostly comes from our personal beliefs, what we’ve been indoctrinated with, our money mindset, our overall mission, faulty teaching (or not) just to name a few.  Although we share an overall similar view on selling vs. serving, we have slightly different views about them and we’re sharing unscripted and transparently in this episode...so hold on!   If you two have been struggling with increasing the sales and the best way to do it without feeling like you’re being left with the short end of the stick...take a listen! Here’s what you’re gonna learn in this episode about selling through serving: 1) How it distinguishes with your market and how to create genuine excitement that is contagious and transferable. 2) How it monetizes your brand by becoming a resource rather than just a ‘store’ 3) How to build trust and create raving fans through this sales technique (even when it feels like there’s a dip, you’re still winning!)

Ep. 55: Stop Putting All Your Eggs In One Basket!!
 Yesterday for many entrepreneurs the world stood still, not literally but just their world. Those who have put ALL of their eggs into the ONE basket of social media for lead gen, business transactions and onboarding really felt the pain.   For some of us others, we barely noticed the issue until it was nearly over but business kept going!

Ep. 54: You’re Sitting On Gold: Listen THEN Respond
We ran from it for a good year. We had absolutely no desire to work together as husband and wife in the same business...we preferred to help simply support each other’s own endeavors... It all started when our clients from both of our businesses (real estate and consulting) asked us to work together to help their entire family. Guys, we ALMOST missed out on living this part of the dream… all because we didn’t see what others saw- in fact, we were too focused on what we were doing individually to even take it seriously.  So, you may be in the same season, but in Episode #54 we want to share insights that have helped us to listen and respond: ➡️ Avoid the common mistake of leading in with answers, instead, ask questions and listen. ➡️ A simple strategy to hearing what the market is asking for and asking YOU for ➡️ A quick way to know when you should even respond to the market, not every call is to be answered by you It goes without saying that this episode is gold, especially if you’ve been sleeping on new ways of doing, delivering and performing in business together.
