Rank #1: 338: How to Have Deeper Relationships Even if You're An Introvert.
Welcome back to the Strategy Hour ya’ll! A couple of weeks ago we had a workshop and we got a few comments that caught us totally off guard. This came after we spoke about using referrals and tapping into the resources of your inner circle to jumpstart your business. We know what we are talking about when it comes to network marketing, but there is the icky side of this that involves random messages from people you haven’t been in contact with for ages and then they suddenly need something from you. That is not what we are advising you to do! These “Hey Girl” messages are simply not the way to go! You don’t even need social media to have the conversations we are urging you to have. But if you are using social, here is our ten cents about it: respond to others in the way that you want to be responded to. Building our business came down to personal relationships and conversations and today we’re sharing more of our personal experiences and successes on this front. So be sure to tune in for this episode of Strategy Hour, and find out how to create those meaningful business relationships! Thank you for listening!

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.

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.

Lisa Robertson was arguably the network’s most popular and best performing host of all time, generating a huge fan base and generating billions of dollars in revenue. In 2012 she launched her own Lisa Robertson Collection to create and feature her own designs as well as more of her favorite things, and she moved on from QVC in 2014. But why did she really leave, and how has the transition been for her? During this episode of Glambition Radio I was happily surprised at how open and forthright Lisa was in talking about the transition. You’ll also hear about her entire journey of her 20-year career in hosting and sales. (Did you know she first got started doing night shifts at another shopping channel, talking to herself (and the occasional inebriated caller) for hours a night? She tells the story during our interview.) She gives us a sneak peek into her life now, and her new online business, after leaving her cable career. Her stunning Pennsylvania home is now the ultimate décor showroom, and she live-streams frequently to show off her wares and give decorating tips. (I found myself entranced in the middle of a workday… watching a full 10-minute demonstration on how to make the perfect Christmas bow. And I suddenly felt I had to up my holiday decorating game. That’s her magic. I was sold.) You’ll hear how she runs her business, works with a team she loves, and uses social media to serve her fans — it’s all on this episode of Glambition Radio. On the show, we also cover: * how she found the blessing in being overworked (at one point 20 hour workdays when she was on TV) * how she keeps out the haters and negative people from her Facebook page * the biggest change in Lisa’s life since leaving QVC * how she came to the realization that she was a control freak and how it changed her leadership style * the importance of looking at the big picture and not getting hung up on the little things when owning a business * why Lisa thinks everyone should own their own business for at least a year * why thinking like an entrepreneur will often NOT serve you well when working for a corporation (love this insight!) On the show Lisa and I also discuss the importance of trusting your gut, why you need to remember why you started your own business in the first place, and what we love about Christmas decor. You’re not going to want to miss this. So head over to iTunes and listen to this episode of Glambition Radio now (or download for later). Love and Success, P.S. I would love your review!

Rank #2: 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.

I know first hand that it’s way too easy to slip into the rat race of competition and comparison. In 2016, I hit my first million-dollar year in my business...yet, I was totally miserable. At the time, I was focused on numbers and status, rather than what would actually bring me real happiness and create an impact in the world. That all changed. This podcast is about my journey to meaning and fulfillment and how you can bring it to your own life - today and every day.

Rank #1: Ep. 23: Tiffany Han on Crazyfaith.
And, welcome to the podcast episode where I quote myself. This week, I did something a little bit different and did a solo show. What started out as a short guide to finding your own way to Raise your hand and say yes quickly became my stance on life (enter: the Crazyfaith) and my musings on the movement I'm trying to create with my work and this show. I'm feeling a wee bit vulnerable posting and sharing this now, but, in the spirit of leaning in to my own discomfort, here goes. I'd love to hear what you think! I would like to do more of these solo shows (don't worry! I'm not going to give up the interviews!), so if what I had to say resonated, please let me know! PS. As I mentioned towards the end of the episode, the Raise your Hand Say Yes book club is coming! We’re starting with The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. Get your copy now and give it a read – the episode where we discuss it will air on March 4 and we'll also be doing a twitter chat following the episode. PPS.

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.
