194: Scale a Business That You Love - Eleanor Beaton
Work From The Inside Out
Eleanor Beaton is the founder of SafiMedia, an education & coaching company for women entrepreneurs. Through SafiMedia and her podcast Power Presence Position, Eleanor and her team are committed to advancing global gender equity and a model of economic growth that nourishes the planet, one woman-owned business at a time. Eleanor grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada, although she was born in England. Her father was an economics professor at a university in Nova Scotia, and previously, her Mom was a teacher in her native Fiji, where Eleanor’s parents originally met. In fact, in those earlier years, Eleanor’s mother earned more than her father, owned her own home, and was living very comfortably, fully supporting herself when they began dating. Once they moved to England and had Eleanor, they decided that her mother would stay home and raise her, which she did for eighteen years. Eleanor’s parents had a good relationship, yet her mother regretted not having her own finances to manage. Her message to Eleanor: make your own money. Money is power. Eleanor started her career in PR and advertising, but something was missing. She decided to attend journalism school and, then, started her own communications firm. Eleanor was drawn to content about women’s independence and financial equity. She trained in coaching and shifted her business model to support female entrepreneurs in their growth and development. In this week’s Work From The Inside Out podcast, learn more about Eleanor’s journey: Eleanor's work has been published or quoted in publications including The Globe & Mail, The Atlantic, CBC, Chatelaine, and more. She’s on a mission to double the number of women entrepreneurs who scale past $1M in revenue by 2030.

253: How to identify your pain points in life - with Eleanor Beaton (PART TWO)
The Simplifiers Podcast
Earlier this week, we shared part one of this conversation, all about how to identify your pain points in life. This conversation has really stuck with me this entire week through, because let’s face it… we as humans are conditioned to avoid pain at whatever cost, right? But then, ironically, we sometimes stay in situations that cause a lot of pain and strife for fear of the unknown on the other side once we take the leap. (That doesn’t make any sense at all!) I know, for me, when I make a Bold Ask out into the world, I’m always fully supported. I may not always get what I want, when I want it, but I do know that I’m making forward progress and building incrementally on my confidence and courage. And maybe that’s the secret to what Eleanor is talking about here? Now, if you haven’t heard part one, go back and listen to that one first. But if you’re ready to continue on, let’s pick back up here with my conversation with leadership expert Eleanor Beaton as she simplifies how to identify your pain points in life. It’s time to simplify… Here’s how. My special guest today is Eleanor Beaton and she’s simplifying how to identify your pain points in life. We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including: Why we (as humans) tend to avoid acknowledging our pain points in our career and in our non-work lives How to identify the pain points (and roadblocks) in our life that are holding us back from reaching our full potential by doing a Pain Audit What she means by the phrase “using pain to prune your life” - and how to begin to do it Learn to release these pain points with intentionality in a practical way …and ultimately, she talks about the 3 P’s (Power, Presence, and Position) - a simple and profound framework that helps her prune the pain points in her work and in life... and find real freedom. You can do it, I believe in you… it’s time to simplify! Q: Are you ready to identify your pain points in life… and do something about it? If yes, this one is for you.

252: How to identify your pain points in life - with Eleanor Beaton (PART ONE)
The Simplifiers Podcast
At times, it’s obvious to identify your pain points in life - those things that cause you stress, strife, or leave you feeling like things are starting to go off course and you’re not sure how to get back on track. But what about the things in your work and life that are causing you pain that you are oblivious to? How do you begin to courageously work through these elements to get unstuck and start to live the life that you actually want? My special guest today is leadership expert Eleanor Beaton and she’s simplifying how to identify your pain points in life… and do something about it. She believes that when you take action to acknowledge, understand, and release your pain points one by one, your entire life trajectory changes. Easier said than done? Not exactly… step one is listening to this conversation and then doing something about it. Here’s how.

799: Eleanor Beaton – The Case for Non-Revenue-Centered Business
The Self-Employed Life
What do we tend to center our business goals around? Revenue, right? In this episode, find out why that might not be the best idea…and what to do differently. As my guest, Eleanor Beaton, says, “the hunt for immediate revenue can hold us back from making long-term decisions that actually create sustainable, long-term wealth.” In this fascinating conversation, Eleanor and I talk about the need for long-term thinking, the downsides of constant urgency, and the power of building a business ecosystem. Through building an ecosystem of scalable processes, revenue-generation can simply become a natural by-product of the ecosystem you’ve built.

No. How about we start really creating assets and thinking about an ecosystem of growth rather than putting it all on our own back and growing through our labor?”“The key to a sustainable business is packaged standardized offerings. So a business will start with a lot of bespoke services. And I think that's really a powerful way (to start) and you can always have a portion of your business be bespoke. But if you truly wanna scale, you're going to need to start standardizing through group programs, courses, or standardized services.”“We're living through this epidemic of overwhelm. There can certainly be a huge amount of ease and flow. But the reality is there are parts of a business that are hard.

Eleanor Beaton learned at an early age that money is power from her mother who told her, “Money is power, always make your own.” Influenced by her mother’s words, Eleanor became a business owner but lost her ambition after her father died in 2014. Doing the bare minimum and eventually ceasing to run her business, Eleanor turned to journaling as an outlet to deal with her grief. Through her journaling and self evaluation, she eventually decided to take the leap of starting Safi Media, an education and coaching company for women entrepreneurs with the mission of helping women unlock their leadership and entrepreneurial potential. As an entrepreneur and an award winning journalist, Eleanor was personally asked by Canada's Minister of Finance, Chrystia Freeland, to give economic advice at the World Economic Recovery program in 2021. Eleanor has given talks at Yale School of Management, the Professional Business Women’s Association of California, ACC foundation, Shio and many more. Safi Media is committed to advancing global gender equity through women's entrepreneurship and is on a mission to double the number of women entrepreneurs who scale past 1 million dollars in revenue by 2030.

Losing her father and the constellation of emotions and shift of family dynamic. The conflict of relief and guilt. Evaluating expectations and true self. Journaling leading to Safi Media. Storytelling structure and dissent into the dark feminine. Processing grief individually and collectively. Practical support vs. emotional support. Willingness to be successful and scaling. The power of words Quotes “Even inside a marriage and a family that is very healthy in many ways, economic disempowerment can be incredibly painful.” “Money is power, always make your own.” “A part of how you define yourself is often in relation to other people.” “Dissent into the dark feminine: who we are and what we really want is so critical for women.” “Grief and Loss and necessary endings provide a sort of creative fuel for so many of us.” Mentioned: EleanorBeaton.com Power, Presence, Position Podcast The Hero’s Journey https://bonniemarcusleadership.com/ https://web.facebook.com/bonnie.marcus/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/bonniemarcus https://twitter.com/selfpromote https://www.instagram.com/self_promote_/ Gendered Ageism Survey Results Forbes article 5 Tips to own the superpower of your age IAMMusicGroup Purchase my book Not Done Yet on Amazon: If you enjoyed this episode of Badass Women Podcast, then make sure to subscribe to the podcast and drop us a five-star review.
