031: Jill Coleman | Gaining Unstoppable Clarity

Everyone I know has been telling me that I have to interview Jill Coleman, who is like a fitness model and captain of industry all rolled into one. Jill is the owner of the hugely successful brand JillFit, where she helps people in the areas of mindset, physique, and business. In This Conversation We Cover: [2:40] Growing up in a big Irish family [6:10] Launching JillFit [7:25] Deeply personal stories about marriage [10:40] The mindset Jill developed to create her hugely successful international brand [13:10] Working smarter instead of harder [16:50] A crazy story about running into your ex-husband, staying friends, & the power of mindset [29:20] Forgiveness & trust [31:10] How stoicism philosophy entered Jill’s life & how she applies it to the play hard part of her life [38:25] Getting out of “blame & complain” and into relentless positivity [40:40] Using practical pessimism as a productivity tool [42:10] Why Jill created JillFit & what she’s doing next [45:20] What Play Hard looks like for Jill [54:10] Jill’s evening wind down routine [58:00] Your questions for Jill Stoic Philosophy & Playing Hard Memento Mori translates to remember death, and it’s a phrase at the heart of Stoic philosophy. For Jill, it really means creating or living life to the fullest. “Remember Death reminds me that this is finite. I have a limited amount of days or hours or minutes that I get to live and be in this space, and for me, it reminds me to take action, to do the scary stuff, to invest, to make a choice when I’m scared.” Practical Pessimism & Productivity Practical pessimism is really just a systematic way of looking at all of the scenarios that could happen if you take a big leap. Say you’re going to start a business. Ask yourself, what is the worst thing that could possibly happen? Most people might go to I’m broke, homeless, or have to move back in with their parents. Then ask yourself two more questions: If that happened, could you handle it? And if that did transpire, what is one single step you could take to get back to baseline? There’s actually a lot of freedom in the worst-case scenario because it’s almost never as bad as you think it’s going to be.

013: Lori Harder | From the Depths of Darkness to Pure Bliss

Lori Harder is a self-love expert, transformational speaker, cover model, the host of the Earn Your Happy podcast, and the author of the upcoming book A Tribe Called Bliss: Break Through Superficial Friendships, Create Real Connections, Reach Your Highest Potential. Lori has overcome a number of obstacles that most of us will never have to face, and she’s come out on top every time. She’s an incredible person, and I’m pumped to share her powerful story and belief with all of you. In This Conversation We Cover: [6:00] How Lori’s unique upbringing affects her perspective on spirituality and the world. [9:30] Struggling with weight as a child (and overcoming it). [11:45] Dealing with anxiety. [17:30] Embracing “freedom” with bad habits. [20:30] The dark night that changed Lori’s life. [27:00] How Lori worked through her trauma. [27:40] Lori’s manifested dreams for the future becoming a reality. [38:10] The powerful belief that Lori has that most people don’t (and how she trained herself to believe it). [40:40] Earning your happy. [44:25] What Lori does for herself when she needs to feel better. The Darkness Lori grew up in a very religious and restrictive family, exposed to a limited view of the world throughout much of her childhood. However, having that experience – and challenging it – has had a big impact on who Lori is today. Whether it’s your religious beliefs or the belief that you are unhealthy due to “bad genetics,” it’s hard to believe anything different if you are only ever exposed to one view. As a result of her environment, Lori was in fear all the time. When she met people with a different (and, at times, more loving) perspective of the world, she could not wrap her brain around some of the conflicting ideas… at first. Being exposed to wildly different ideas and working through that inner conflict, ultimately, gave Lori “massive perspective.” She dug deep into herself and asked an important question: What feels right for me? Unfortunately, that wasn’t the darkest time in Lori’s life. After graduating, Lori bounced from a straight edge religious background to a party lifestyle. She met a lot of interesting people and it helped broaden her horizons, but she also picked up a number of unhealthy habits. Then, one night in Cancun, she was separated from her best friend in a club. In her efforts to find her friend, Lori ended up in a cab outside of town. The man who brought her there intended to rob her and leave her there, and she struggled to fend him off for hours. Then, she had a moment – “a crazy, clarifying moment” – and she knew what to say. She humanized herself, and she told the man that God knew what he was doing and would forgive him if he brought her back. She drove back to town with a knife pressing against her neck, but she got back – and over the next few years, she started to transform her life. A Tribe Called Bliss Today, all of the dreams that Lori manifested are coming true. It was a long, hard journey, but she’s starting to see the rewards. Lori believes it’s important to share this journey with others, bumps and all, because then they can see how much intention and time goes into creating happiness and living your purpose. It’s not always easy, and it takes daily planning, but anyone can do it! If you want to dive deeper into Lori’s story and get a big dose of inspiration, you can pre-order A Tribe Called Bliss (releasing May 8, 2018). And in the meantime, you can check out the Earn Your Happy podcast today!

010: Amanda Bucci | Tripling Your Instagram Followers

Amanda Bucci is a lifestyle entrepreneur and social media influencer with over half a million Instagram followers and 200,000 YouTube subscribers. Through her posts, podcast, and coaching, she helps others develop their minds, hearts, online businesses, and health. We’re going to learn how Amanda transitioned from educator to influencer, building a social media following through the perfect combination of consistency, transparency, education, and authenticity (the “secret sauce” to her success). In This Conversation We Cover: [5:15] How Amanda became who she is today [15:00] When Amanda realized she could do more (and what she did to make it happen) [21:15] Tactical strategies for Instagram [33:10] The 5% rule for crafting your CTA on social media [35:00] Being “you” all the time when you’re constantly being recorded [41:40] Using #hashtags as supplements on Instagram [47:10] Amanda’s technology & processes [54:00] Leveraging outsourcing to scale [57:10] How living in front of the camera affects Amanda’s life [1:00:00] Behind-the-scenes look at the process of getting a sponsor [1:03:00] Amanda’s focus in 2018 [1:05:00] Amanda’s mentors [1:07:00] The biggest challenge that Amanda faced in 2017 (and how she overcame it) [1:14:30] How Amanda is maximizing her play hard time Amanda’s Instagram Tactics & the “Turkey Sandwich” Post Before Amanda posts something to Instagram or YouTube, she asks herself a few questions… How is this going to help my ideal client? “If it’s not adding value to anybody, it’s not worth posting.” How are you translating your authentic personality (i.e. who your best friends know you as) to social media? “Is it You As Fuck? It has to scream you, and it has to scream your niche.” On Instagram, “captions are everything,” and a good post is like a Turkey Sandwich: Your bread is your hook. The first sentence of your caption has to make them excited about reading the rest of your caption. The next piece is the cheese. Why do people want to read this? Add flavor to the story or message behind the caption. “If you can get people to say ‘Me too,’ that’s the best because then they’re going to keep reading.” The turkey is the meat of the post. Maybe a relatable story, or anything else your reader can get invested in. The other slice of bread is your call to action. If you don’t have any CTA in your post, you’re losing out on potential engagement. “Asking questions is probably the best way to get engagement on your post… a question that excites people to answer.” Every CTA can’t be a hard sell for your products. Amanda follows the 5% rule: 5% of the time you can do a hard sell for your product (ideal for product launches) 20% of the time you can ask them to sign up for or download something for free 75% should be free value for your audience, using questions (or your preferred technique) to build engagement Amanda’s Top 3 Editing Apps: Instagram! Not necessarily the default filters, but you have a lot of options to create your own. Facetune for editing images. PicFrame to create side-by-side images Being “You” Online Being on camera, or on mic, is hard, even when you do it all the time. You have to be the most energetic, excited version of yourself, without being inauthentic. When you have to record or perform online, but you don’t feel like your highest self, that means it’s time for self-care. This may be meditating, journaling, or talking to somebody – anything that will help you relax and get in the zone. The more you share online, the more your confidence will build and the easier this process will become. And it’s okay to start small and build up a foundational audience, even using a private account (that’s what Amanda did)! Social Media & Sponsors Social media influencers offer a great opportunity for brands to advertise directly to a very niche audience. But the sponsors that you represent will also have a direct impact on the way other people perceive your brand. For that reason, it’s important that any sponsors align with your brand and add value to your audience. Plus, you should be excited and passionate about working with them! Amanda likes to reach out to brands that appeal to her. When reaching out to a current sponsor, she said: “Hi, I’ve been using your products for a few months now and I love them. I would be really interested in potentially applying to be one of your sponsored athletes. Let me know if there’s a process that I can go through in order to apply.” You don’t want to show up entitled, assuming your audience will get you the job. Instead, focus on how you can help the sponsor, not how they can help you. Resources: Learn more at amandabucci.com Connect with Amanda: Instagram | Twitter | YouTube Listen to Bucci Radio
