Australian Birth Stories
In today’s episode, I chat to Emma @emmaisaacs for the second time (you can hear all about her first five births in episode 73). Today she shares the story of her home birth in LA when the pandemic was at its peak and the Black Lives Matter riots could be heard from her house. She made the decision to live stream the final hours of her labour on Instagram in the hope that it would shift the perception of birth for her viewers. She didn’t know it at the time, but 60,000 people tuned in, sent heartfelt messages of love and awe, and watched her give birth to her baby boy, Louis.
Emma Isaacs. What a whirlwind of a human being. Emma is the owner and Global CEO of Business Chicks, Australia's business women's community. She broke into the business world at 18 with a recruitment business, and was a self-made millionaire at 23. Emma preaches the gospel of ‘action’ in a world where so many women doubt and second guess ourselves. She lives in Los Angeles and is mama to….wait for it….6 kids. If you’re looking for a sign to chase the next big challenge, dream or adventure - then this episode is for you! Get around Emma’s latest book ‘The New Hustle’ it’s about working better, not harder. About living a life of joy and saying no to traditional, outdated modes of working that suck the life out of you. BooM! Big love to our sponsor, modibodi.

151. Fearlessly Failing: Emma Isaacs - Author & Global CEO of Business Chicks
Fearlessly Failing with Lola Berry
From the day I started this podcast Emma Issacs was on my dream guest list. I had always been excited (and if I’m honest, a little nervous) to interview Emma. What an incredible human! From owning her own company at 18, to then buying Business Chicks at 25 years old. Today she’s the global CEO of Business Chicks. She’s also living on the other side of the world and author of not one but two books! Her latest one “The New Hustle” I binge read in 2 days. Emma, it was an absolute honour to have you on the podcast, thank you for inspiring me to reach for the stars.

There are some people who have entrepreneurship in their DNA and my guest today is a prime example of a woman who was born to make an impact in business. Emma Isaacs is the Founder and Global CEO of Business Chicks, a thriving global community that operates in 11 cities across two continents. A business owner by the age of 18, self made millionaire by 23, mum of six, and best selling author, Emma is an absolute powerhouse. She joins me today to celebrate the official release of her latest book, The New Hustle. With live events on hold, Business Chicks was forced to rethink their offerings over the last 18 months and Emma shares some of the lessons she writes about in her book, in particular the importance of being patient, relaxing into whatever stage she’s in and being okay with failure. We talk about her role as a leader, how she takes this very seriously and how we must always be in alignment with our values in life and business. Emma shares her view on what leadership is, how it’s a lifelong journey and that there is so much beauty in being vulnerable, knowing that we’ll never have all the answers. Leadership takes courage, humility and a willingness to ask questions and do things that other people aren’t doing. I hope you love this conversation as much as I did. Emma has an incredible amount of experience, wisdom and grace and her new book is an absolute must read. Tune in to find out how you can get yourself a free copy!

Emma Isaacs is the founder of Business Chicks, one of Australia’s best-known entrepreneurs, author of two books, mother to six children - and yet she refuses to call herself busy. On the back of the pandemic, Emma believes ‘the hustle’ as we know it is dead. In her forties, she’s all about a new hustle - one that condemns the work-more/sleep-less trope, and instead celebrates the power of calm. In our chat, Emma also gets honest about her money story - like the time her credit card declined on her son’s birthday, how AirBNB’ing the family home saved her financial bacon, and why a very public business failure made her hibernate for six months and question everything. So, what if we’ve been served a big, fat lie about what success should look like at work, and in our forties? We find out in FORTY.

Seize the Yay
When I say #yaysofourlives has a looser structure than our OG interviews, I took it to all new levels today chatting for probably half an hour before I asked the first question. But, with the inimitable Emma Isaacs jumping back on the show who I haven’t seen forever AND who has written her second, brand new book with SO MUCH painfully relevant content to cover, I’m surprised I even got to my questions at all!If you haven’t heard Emma’s backstory yet, head back to episode 11 to hear how she has blazed a trail for female entrepreneurs (and all entrepreneurs for that matter) since the age of 18 leading her to become the founder and global CEO of Business Chicks. If you follow me at all, you’ll know what a huge impact Emma and her team have had on me both professionally and in all areas of who I am as a person and I’ll forever be indebted for the opportunities and connections they have made possible in my life (including the fact that Emma had faith enough in Seize the Yay to jump on the show just 11 episode in).In this chat, we just have a good old catch up with bursts of me gushing about her brilliant second book, The New Hustle, in between. You’ll probably tell that once I get started, I keep linking idea after idea making my way through almost the whole book before realising I haven’t even asked about quote of the yay – but that’s why it’s such a timely read with 77 amazing messages about navigating times of challenge and change. Emma is one of the women I look up to most in the world and to have her in your ears at a time like this is so invaluable, so I hope you enjoy and take as much out of her as I do. She is at once impeccably professional and wise as well as a totally open book about parenting six kids or having breakdowns on the daily – the relatable content we all need to hear. Link to The New Hustle will of course be in the show notesPRE-ORDER THE NEW HUSTLE HERE+ Follow Emma here+ Announcements on Insta at @spoonful_of_sarah+ Join our Facebook community here+ Subscribe to not miss out on the next instalment of YAY!

Guest Bio: Emma Isaacs is the Founder and Global CEO of Business Chicks. A business owner by the age of 18, property investor by 19, and self-made millionaire by 23, Emma Isaacs has entrepreneurship and achievement in her DNA. As the founder of Business Chicks—a thriving global community that operates on two continents in eleven cities – her team produces more than 100 events annually, with past speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brené Brown, Diane von Furstenberg, and Kate Hudson, among others - and as a committed philanthropist has now raised more than $13million for various non-profits.

A fearless leader with seemingly never-ending courage to spare, Emma inspires thousands with her boundless energy and ability to see possibility wherever she goes.
