127: Biz: The Must-Have Mindset of a Successful Female Entrepreneur with Sandy Connery

Read more

Today’s theme is all about business — expanding your money mindset, balancing your business and family, and getting the support you deserve as a female entrepreneur!

My guest today, Sandy Connery, is the co-founder of Namastream Software — an online digital platform that enables yoga instructors and wellness practitioners to take their knowledge into the online space by teaching various courses. It’s a user-friendly technology, super amazing, and game-changing for people in that industry!

On today’s podcast, Sandy and I talk about what it actually means to be a woman in business; what it means to think bigger, what it means to set higher standards — and not in the traditional online business way — but to do it uniquely, as a woman. Part of female leadership is being able to step into our role — not to do it like men in a female body, but to do it like women from the values and mindset that women bring to the table.

Be sure to tune in to hear all of Sandy’s knowledge bombs on the types of skills and mindset we need to leverage in order to be able to effectively navigate the entrepreneurial world as a woman!

Doing It Your Way with Jennifer Barcelos & Sandy Connery

Read more

Let this be the summer that you give birth to the idea that has been simmering in your heart for all this time. Applications for my Summer Mastermind are open! Apply here!

Here are some of the big topics we talked about…

  • Listen to anecdotes Jeni and Sandy share from being revolted by the “tech incubator” experience to they themselves being the two support people on their software platform (decidedly not having bots answer questions) to their closeness as best friends, mothers, and full-time leaders who work remotely from home
  • How they weave soulfulness, artisanship, and feminist philosophy into all they do
  • Even a year before they officially started working together, Jeni and Sandy had congruent inner voice intuitions yet didn’t discover that until later!
  • The gratitude between these to women is clear - their working relationship is incredibly important to both of their lives and it’s a gift that they share with us how it works
  • Importance of not participating in the harsh masculine language of online business (like ‘crushing it,’ ‘dominating,’ etc) and consciously living by a code of conduct that resonates with you, even if it’s not the absurdly growth-driven “success” so sought after
  • How wellness practitioners can shift the belief that spiritual practices like yoga or meditation shouldn’t be profitable businesses

In Jeni’s and Sandy’s Voices

“Digital artisanship is the idea of taking the standards and principles of this offline artisan world and bringing it into the internet.”“We met in a very masculine setting, we were in a course together with very few women in it. In this environment, it was about growth, profit, and speed. There was a real missing voice.”“We did a lot of work early on the kind of company we want to build, how we want our customers to experience our company, how we want to empower women to be able to create their own business, have more freedom and flexibility with their time, earn more money, spend more time with their family or in nature. We just weren’t seeing that out there in the very ‘masculine’ economy.”“Success is also watching our teachers on our platform succeed. They have a gift to bring to the world to teach; they use our platform to reach a greater geographical audience and make an online business because of our tool. Those ripple effects are extremely satisfying.”“I want to cultivate the innate talents of other people in order to build wealth that supports all of us.”“We have to be very careful of the words we use because that’s creating the world we live in.”

How These Biz Besties Began a Software Startup with Jennifer Barcelos and Sandy Connery

Read more

Sandy Connery and Jeni Barcelos met through a course that taught how to begin a software startup. Sandy had a successful brick and mortar business selling custom orthotics in Canada. She knew she was burned out and needed a change when she stopped caring about her work. She liked the idea of creating an online business so that she could stay at home and not have an inventory. Jennifer was a human rights lawyer who traveled to the scarier parts of the globe. They were brought together by a software startup course and have been meeting the male-dominated world of software head on ever since. Listen to their biz bestie story on this episode of My Biz Bestie.

118 Align Your Biz Values For Loyal Customers with Namastream Founders Jennifer Barcelos & Sandy Connery

Read more

In your messaging it’s one thing to take a stand for something.

But a lot of times, how we show up doesn’t actually match the stand we took. Sometimes we don’t realize it. And sometimes we aren’t quite sure how to put it into practice because we don’t have role models for how that would look.

My guests on today’s Unforgettable ep are actively being those role models, not just for having strong values, but for implementing those values in their business.

Jennifer Barcelos and Sandy Connery, co-founders of the online education software Namastream (like a Teachable for the wellness industry) and co-hosts of the Soulful MBA podcast, are two seriously smart women - a Yale-educated lawyer with a grad degree in Environmental Science and a former owner of a million-dollar brick-and-mortar business & clinic.

In this episode we explore how they put their values into practice while nurturing their loyal following -- including why they turned down venture capitalist money for their tech startup, the real reason they don’t offer free trials, and their new ‘Digital Artisanship’ manifesto.

Listen in. 

Listen in and you’ll learn:

  • What virtual biz owners can learn about building an ultra-enthusiastic, loyal community from craft breweries, jewelry designers, pastry shops, and leather workers

  • How they find the words to use in their marketing that resonate with their customers (and their copywriting process that I nerded out on)

  • Why they see their business and platform as promoting an underlying feminist message

  • How to leverage the power of automated marketing without dehumanizing the sales process

  • The way their unique voices create a balance between human scale and big picture thinking in their copy, their podcast, and running their business

Deeper support from me:

  • I privately coach & message for select clients to realign, define, & refine your messaging to reach your next level of impact. Book a Clarity Call to explore the possibility of working together.

Anyways, I'm interviewing Sandy Connery & Jeni Barcelos who are the founders of a software company called Namastream.

We chat about the major challenges bootstrapping a tech company (they did not get venture capital funding), the specific challenges facing female entrepreneurs in tech, the biggest barriers they've had to overcome, misconceptions people have about working in the tech industry, advice to young women who want to work in tech and so much more. As always, you can join in the conversation with other Day in the Life listeners in the Day in the Life Facebook group!

In today’s episode, you'll find out:

  • The major challenges of bootstrappng a tech company with no venture capital funding.
  • Why they ultimately decided to not seek out venture capital funding.
  • The specific challenges female entrepreneurs in tech face.
  • The biggest barriers they've had to overcome.
