Rank #1: 204: Goal Crusher Club - Part 1: 7 Habits for Productivity.
In this episode we dive into seven habits that we believe lead to a more productive life and a more productive business. These seven habits will ultimately help you achieve the goals and dreams you are seeking – whether those are personal or financial. You are one person, with multiple facets, and you can’t play blind to the fact that you have a life outside of work! We want to incorporate that into living a lifestyle that gets you where you want to go. These seven habits have been monitored over time in our own business. Whenever we are incredibly productive, we take a look at everything that we were doing over that time and ask, “What was a constant? What habits combined aided our productivity?” A lot of people ask us what is it that makes us so productive, and everyone seems to be waiting for that miracle answer. But the reason why we are covering seven habits is because it is never just one thing. It’s never just one thing you do that helps you sell more, or get more people on your list, or land more clients. It is a combination of things that helps to create a successful business and a successful human being. So take a listen and learn more about the seven habits we focus on that have led to more productivity in our lives and how it can lead to more productivity in your life too. Thank you for listening!

Rank #2: 014: Going from 0 to 272k Blog Readers.
Today we’re getting real with blogging. For a lot of people, blogging is not their favorite thing. Perhaps you don’t like it either. That is A-okay. We are going to talk to you about why it is important, how it has been super incremental to our personal growth, and our business growth and some hints and tips for you to make it a little bit easier on yourself so maybe you can enjoy it a little bit more. People get caught up on wanting to see quick results. Like anything else, they think blogging is the quick way to see financial gain. However, blogging is not a get rich quick scheme. Blogging does not even look like it used to look even five or 10 years ago. It’s an entirely different strategy with an entirely different marketing game plan, and in order to get paid from your blog, you have to have a different mindset. This mindset is that blogging is 100%, straight up, no joke a long-term game. So if you are looking for some guidance and motivation to grow your blog, then this is the episode for you!

Claire Pelletreau was just starting to grow her side business as a Facebook ad and marketing consultant when her full-time job disappeared. Desperate to land enough clients just to pay the bills, she was disappointed at how difficult it was to find real tactical advice that would help actually her get paid month to month. The Get Paid Podcast is Claire’s attempt to pull back the curtain on the reality of running an online business. All these people pulling in “six figures” - how are they ACTUALLY doing it? What kind of money do they take home after expenses? What are those expenses, anyway? Are they truly “solopreneurs” or are they supported by a team? What does that team do for them? How are they marketing their offerings and growing their lists? How long did it take to get to where they are? You’ll discover how different entrepreneurs get paid and what it costs them to bring in that money.
Rank #1: Suzi Istvan: Growing A Design Agency and Spending Money on People (GPP04).
Suzi Istvan’s design business brought in big bucks in 2014, but her take-home pay was far from six-figures. A year of big growth means big investments, but the strategic way she spends her money has set her up with a business she always dreamed of running (and that’s bringing in some serious revenue). In this episode you’ll hear:-- How Suzi identifies and then deals with debilitating burn-out. -- One of the ways I “keep it interesting” in my marriage. -- The secret deal Suzi’s husband may or may not have made with the devil. -- A breakdown of the retainer services Splendidly Curious provides, and what may cause their prices to vary. -- How much the business made in 2014 and what Suzi’s own cut of that was by the end of the year. -- Why Suzi and her team aren’t actually working for the people who are paying them month-to-month. (Sounds like a scam but it’s not!) -- Why she felt it was important to hire a lawyer on retainer before bringing in any designers to actually make money for the business. -- The “backwards” way that Suzi went about preparing her business to hire its first designer. -- Why it took longer than it should have for that first designer to start “paying for herself.” -- The make-up of the Splendidly Curious team: who they are and what they do. -- Why charging for packages instead of for hours worked protects both her business and its clients.
Rank #2: Mark Butler: The CFO You Can Never Fire (GPP16).
Having trouble keeping track of your business finances? Make sure you know exactly how to use your revenue projections in order to stimulate business growth rather than set you up for failure. Mark was mentioned a few episodes ago when I interviewed Rachel Cook because he is the CFO that she mentioned as a part of her team. That is what Mark does for a living; he will be your CFO and help you manage the money. In this episode you’ll hear: -- Exactly how Mark helps his clients manage their money, and make smarter spending decisions. -- Why you should never use projections to make big spending decisions and what you should use them for instead. -- Why he is virtually “unfireable” and what exactly that means. -- Why his previous business, a membership site, shriveled up and died (and what you can do to avoid it). -- Why Mark is not a big fan of high end mastermind programs.

Rank #1: 81: Minimalist Baker: The Secret to Building a Rock Solid Brand with Dana Shultz.
What does it take to build a stunning brand and create a food blog empire? This week, I'm thrilled we have my dear friend Dana Shultz of Minimalist Baker to help us find out! Dana is the creator and founder of Minimalist Baker, an amazing website dedicated to simple vegan cooking with recipes requiring 10 ingredients or less, 1 bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare. She's also an author, and I've got her cookbook proudly displayed in my kitchen -- it rocks! We're talking about Dana's story, diving deep into the inner workings of Minimalist Baker. We're rewinding the tapes to her first attempt at blogging, a more general website dedicated to her interests and everyday life. Though her first blog didn't get much traction, Dana noticed the popularity of her food-focused blog posts. She decided to get laser focused, fusing her recipe creating and food photography skills to craft a crisp, clear brand with beautiful & compelling imagery. Minimalist Baker has garnered a colossal following with a published cookbook to go with it, and Dana didn't just get lucky or stumble upon the right idea on accident. Her approach to branding is her secret sauce, and it's one we can all learn from: an excellent mashup of simplicity, dedication, discipline and authenticity. In the Courage half, you'll hear: All about Minimalist Baker and how Dana & her husband / partner in crime (John) earn their living with the site How she got here, and the roadblocks along the way A peek into the lessons and pivots that led to Minimalist Baker's wildfire success And then in the Clarity part, we're talkin': Specific mistakes Dana made with her first blog, and what she sees so clearly in looking back How a brand can evolve over time without turning an audience off The power of a truly compelling mission statement, why you need to write one and how to do it What to do if your message feels murky -- how to find your core and use it to attract eager readers What makes a truly excellent brand, and how each of us can strengthen ours "People don't have time to figure out what you do, you have to be really really clear about what you do." "I don't think that you have to be the best at something, you just have to be interesting, value-adding and consistent."
Rank #2: 108: Is Your Dream Really Possible?.
Do you ever feel terrified of your big dreams? Scared because if they don’t come true you’ll be devastated? I think we’ve all been there. And lately I’ve heard a common theme around this develop in the C&C community, my Instagram and even with my 1:1 coaching clients. Different versions of this same question, a mindset battle most entrepreneurs face. I hear my clients and community members place conditions on their dreams. They create backup plans and time constraints on their businesses. This energy of not being “all-in” is like telling your business you don’t believe in it 100% When we’re scared our dreams might not come true, we place conditions on them. “I’ll give this ten years to work, or I’ll go back to that career I didn’t really love”. We create backup plans and time constraints on our businesses. This energy of not being “all-in” is like telling your business you don’t believe in it 100% I know with Courage & Clarity that once I committed fully, let go of the “how” and came to terms with the fact that it would be messy and uncomfortable at times - my business transformed! So when you’ve got big dreams, you’ve got to let go of the conditions you put on your dreams and replace them with some faith and trust. Like I’ve talked about so many times on this show before, if you keep showing up, you’ll get whatever you’re dreaming of. I promise, when you’re all in, focus your energy and move forward with steady actions, The Universe will conspire on your behalf. You don’t get to choose the “how” - you just need to show up and believe. I get pretty deep into mindset and energy talk, but don’t worry, I didn’t leave the brass tacks out of this episode. I’ve included 8 key points for you to consider when going after your dreams. You’ll also hear about an easy and fun tactic that helped me fill the pre-sale of my first course launch and is literally getting results for members of the C&C community right now. I loved recording this episode for you all, as I reflect on my journey to building C&C into what it is today and dreaming of all it will become. By the end of listening to this I want you to not only realize that your dream is possible, but that it’s already on its way to you!

That could mean anything from creating inbox filters to having a team member take over your inbox entirely … whatever works to free up your brain so you can work on the other important things that have to get done.In this interview, Jenn Scalia also shares that the step after eliminating distractions consists of playing to your strengths.In other words, you need to discover your strong points – the things that can totally skyrocket you. A good question to ask yourself here is: what can I do with my eyes closed?If you’re not sure, create a list of the things that you like to do, get paid to do, or know you’re really good at. You can also ask your friends, since a third-person perspective can be really revealing. Peer collaborations like this are essential to your success as an entrepreneur.I really like the treasures that Jenn shares in this interview – she definitely hits on a lot of the key points that business owners like ourselves should be focusing on.More about Jenn ScaliaJenn Scalia is a visibility strategist for entrepreneurs who want to make an impact. This self professed introvert and single mom went from rock bottom to creating a multi 6-figure business.Known for her tough love, no-B.S. style, Jenn helps entrepreneurs overhaul their biggest fears and empowers them to share their message with the world.
Rank #2: 7 Life Changing Millionaire Habits with Denise Duffield-Thomas.
It’s something I’m definitely practicing and I wanted to invite my friend and fellow Virgo millionaire Denise Duffield-Thomas on to chat about what she’s learned from launching her courses over the years. Denise is an incredible money mindset mentor, also known as “The Lucky Bitch” whose best-selling books and courses have helped thousands of entrepreneurs step-up to create success and abundance. She also tells it like it is, and I love how honest she is about what it takes to make your dreams a reality. In this interview, we chat about: Launches! What we love about them and hate about them… (you might be surprised how similar we are on this one) How focusing on just releasing one program over and over again has helped Denise brings in millions of dollars in her business over the years How money blocks can stop you from reaching your income and savings goals (and yes, unfortunately we all have them!) Upper limits: what they are, and how to bust through plateaus in life and business Being financially “chill” and what it means for Denise and I as parents and business owners My Lucky Bitch Success Story I remember it clearly… In the fall of 2012, freshly married, and excited about our new life together… Robin and I packed up all our belongings and drove a Uhaul from Toronto to New York City, with Millie as our sidekick. Robin’s company headquarters were in New York, and I knew I’d be able to do my online work anywhere… so we dipped into our savings and put down the biggest deposit for an apartment we had ever seen. Dreams of the big city in our eyes. We were spending $3000 per month on rent in Brooklyn (twice what we paid before!), and because we had a dog we had to put down 3 months’ rent as a deposit. Although my business was bringing in that elusive six figures… at the end of the day, there wasn’t a whole lot of money left at the end of each month. Robin was working crazy manhattan hours and I was adjusting to a whole new business model and working just as hard. We were feeling the strain of the big city, and that Empire State of Mind song kept reminding us: “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere…” A few weeks after our move, I remember sitting in bed trying to warm up because our apartment building hadn’t turned the heat on yet, and it was starting to get cold… When I received an email from a woman named Denise Duffield-Thomas, talking about money blocks. My curiosity was piqued, but I assumed that because I had already figured out how to get to six figures in my business, I might already know what she was teaching. I thought the solution to our issues was just to work harder. So I closed the page. But something was niggling at me… so I went back to her site, and found myself on the sales page for her Lucky Bitch Money Bootcamp. Denise was talking about how increasing your earning potential isn’t always related to how many hours you put in, but rather it’s whether you’re allowing money to come into your life or if you’re blocking it. I read every word, and sat firmly on the fence… Should I? Was this the best use of my money? I could put my hard earned cash toward rent or maybe buy a space heater instead… Down to the wire… I clicked the buy button right before midnight on the last day of registration. A part of me cringed at the investment because this wasn’t the only online course I had bought that year, but deep down I knew that if I followed through with this program, things were bound to change. What happened next is still mind boggling to me. As a result of the work I did to clear my money blocks with Denise’s program, I took my six figure income and tripled it in 2013. Then in 2014, our revenues doubled from the previous year. We’ve been growing ever since! To be clear, I can’t say that doing the Money Bootcamp was 100% responsible for the massive increase in income and revenues we experienced… there was a lot of practical stuff and elbow grease that went into it, too. But Denise’s program definitely kickstarted the massive upswing in my business… and her work helped me realize that even if I had been earning that “highly sought after six figures”, I wasn’t really keeping a whole lot of it. We were still living hand to mouth. Since taking the Bootcamp, I’ve been able to not just increase how much my business makes, but actually keep more of it, too. I’ve also watched Denise evolve over the years, and she’s been extremely focused on delivering results for her students. So much so that her Money Bootcamp is now a million dollar course. Instead of trying to create and launch a new program every few months, Denise has been able to build a solid business foundation on this one course which she’s sold on an “evergreen” model… without doing a ton of launches. There’s so much we can learn from her, and how she’s built a cult following of Lucky Bees like myself, with just one core product offer. In fact, Denise is holding a LIVE round of her Money Bootcamp… and I’m excited to be going through it again live, too. Whether you feel like you’ve got your “money stuff” handled or you’re just curious about how Denise has built such a successful process and online course, I highly recommend you study her work. I’m a longtime customer, fan, and proud affiliate of Denise’s work. In fact, I wrote one of the first reviews of the program here back in 2013. And if you sign up for Denise’s Money Bootcamp through my affiliate link I earn a commission, and I’d like to sweeten the deal and offer you 1 module from my Heartquarters Insider program – all about managing your money and paying yourself in your business. I never offer these programs on a stand-alone basis, but because I so believe in the value of Denise’s work and I want to reward you for investing in your own business and releasing your money blocks, I thought I’d make this a special one-time offer. The last day to sign up for Denise’s Live Bootcamp is August 4th at 9pm Eastern. You can also check out Denise’s manifesting formula here, I truly believe she has a ton to share on the business side of running a successful evergreen program, and her teachings are SO spot on when it comes to making money stuff happen for you. I can’t wait to hear what successes you experience as a result of being a part of Denise’s Lucky Bitch world, and I hope you take her up on the special Live Bootcamp round if money is an area you need help with.

Rank #1: Amanda Tress, Founder of FASTer Way To Fat Loss — Glambition Radio Episode 147 with Ali Brown.
You’re about to hear an insightful interview from one of my top clients. But on this show you’re going to hear a very personal story from me, Ali Brown, of how I lost 25 pounds over the last three months, and it was easier and more enjoyable than I ever thought possible. (Have a peek at FASTerwayWithAli.com) Since having my twins, I kind of settled into my new weight, thinking I would have to suffer incredibly to get back toward my previous size, so I wasn’t interested in any of it. But then a new client came to coach with me last summer, and her name was Amanda Tress. I’d never heard of her, or the concept of intermittent fasting, but man… her business was on fire! Apparently her program the FASTer Way was helping thousands of women become super fat burners by way of her proprietary system that combines intermittent fasting with Paleo eating, carb cycling, and rotating workouts (even for beginners). If it sounds intimidating, it was at first. But even doing most of the recommendations — admittedly not all — I literally saw my body changing in the first two weeks! And I’m still going strong. >>> Many of my clients have been asking what I’ve been doing, so I want to invite you to join me on the next round with Amanda at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com. We’ll do a special Zoom call where she and I will privately answer all your questions, and I can share more about my experience with you there. Be sure to use my link, or we won’t know you should be part of the Zoom group. Recent studies shared by the New York Times have revealed that intermittent fasting —confining your eating to a shorter window of time such as Noon to 8pm—is not only helping people burn more fat, but has other health benefits as well. And when you combine this winning method with the other factors in Amanda’s unique program, you have a killer combo that can change your body faster than you thought was possible. On this episode of Glambition Radio, I have Amanda walk us through her own body transformation, but also how she has taken her business from the multiple six-figures when we first met last summer to now a multi-million dollar company ($$$), in less than a year. Keep in mind the fitness/wellness space is an ultra competitive one. And Amanda braved a lot of criticism forseveral years from ‘experts’ who didn’t agree with her program. But now, many of those ‘experts’ are copying what she’s doing and trying to do the same thing. Because it works. (Amanda shares very openly on the show how she deals with and continues to deal with blatant copycats.) >>> Many of my clients have been asking what I’ve been doing, so I want to invite you to join me on the next round with Amanda at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com. We’ll do a special Zoom call where she and I will privately answer all your questions, and I can share more about my experience with you there. Be sure to use my link, or we won’t know you should be part of the Zoom group. On the show, we also discuss: * Amanda goes into detail about making a big decision to shut down her very lucrative digital marketing agency in order to focus on FASTer Way (and her business has grown by over 300% since she’s let it go) * How to cope when family and close friends may not understand or support what your business is all about (it’s sad, but she says the key is to “bless and release”) * How to handle others in your field copying your work (Amanda shares what she did when someone literally copied and pasted her program word-for-word!) * her thoughts on the unhealthy diet plans and workouts that we are constantly bombarded with on social media — and how to avoid them (for example, she explains why eating low-carb nonstop is not good for you) * How she has relied on social proof to scale her business (she posts testimonials on a daily basis — this is key) * The importance of diversifying your revenue streams so you can have peace of mind Amanda and I also discuss why you should stay aligned with your values (even if that means having to make tough decisions), why women entrepreneurs should consider implementing live video into their marketing strategies, and the importance of “keeping the main thing, the main thing”. And if you’re interested in learning more about a fun, sustainable lifestyle with Amanda’s proven program, the next round starts on Monday, August 13. Join me at www.FASTerwayWithAli.com to learn more and take part in the live Zoom video call where we will be answering all your questions. (We’ll also record if you can’t make it) I’m telling you, the results can be life-changing. I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode.

Rank #2: Sheri Salata, Former President of Oprah Winfrey Network + Harpo — Glambition Radio Episode 148 with Ali Brown.
Sheri Salata had a dream job that many would kill for — a 20-year exhilarating career serving as Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and later as the Co-President of Harpo Studios and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. On this #GlambitionRadio episode, I first have Sheri walk us through how she landed her dream job with Oprah. (She explains how it was destiny.) And then, why she recently decided to make the biggest ‘exit’ of her life. You’ll love how real and delightful she is in sharing the juicy details of this story. My favorite fact? Sheri finally landed the initial position with O’s team when they were cleaning out an old closet and found her resume and VHS tape, and asked if she could come in to interview for a producer position. And that’s when she knew, this was it. Being the Executive Producer for Oprah may sound glamorous, but Sheri shares how she sacrificed for the high-pressure job. (It sounds like she barely slept in 20 years!) But would she do it all again? YES. Because it led her in the direction to what I call her ‘iconic work’. Today, Sheri hosts the popular ‘This is Fifty’ podcast with her soulmate friend of 28 years, Nancy Hala, which is all about recreating the middle of your life. The duo are also chief visionaries of The Pillar Life, which offers simple strategies to help transform and balance our lives. Sheri has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business, one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Power 100, and a winner of the 2017 Feminist Press Power Award. But it’s her candidness about her career highs and lows on today’s episode of Glambition Radio that speaks to all of us. On the show, you’ll also hear us discuss: *How the compass for most of Sheri’s life has been misery (misery!!) but how she uses that to then create happiness * Why her 20s and 30s were a ‘total sh– show’ (this had me cracking up!) before she found her big calling * How her jobs with O seemed so glamorous from the outside, but they were really nonstop intensity, deadlines, and overnighters. (Wow…) * What REALLY went down during the creation of OWN (the cable network) and how they dealt with all the negative news reports in the beginning * Her transition from an insane pace and literally working in the dark to entrepreneurship: She’s now in charge of her creations, schedule, and desires. * Her view on life: ‘What if 50 was the middle?’ What if there’s so much more to come? (I loved this and it had me in tears, as I’m just a few years away from 50 myself) * The secret Hollywood health retreat where she went to detox after closing this chapter of her career, in order to feel like she was making a fresh start * Why Sheri doesn’t use the word ‘work’ (she calls it something else very interesting instead) Sheri and I also cover the importance of continually pushing yourself to make your biggest dreams come true, how that little voice in your head is a story and you have the power to change it, and how you are what you dream. You don’t want to miss this powerful interview. Head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download it for later). Xo Ali P.S. Sheri and Nancy are bringing together their favorite teachers, experts, and thought leaders for a weekend of inspiring workshops at an upcoming LIVE retreat NEXT WEEK… You can learn more here!
