From breakdown to 7-figure breakthrough with modern marketing | Emily Osmond

Every entrepreneurial journey is a bit of a rollercoaster ride. We often see the shiny success on the outside but don’t hear about the ups and downs that went on behind the scenes. That’s why I love having guests on the show to share their insights and learnings along the way. My guest today is the incredible Emily Osmond, an International Business Coach, Speaker, and host of one of Australia’s top business podcasts, The Emily Osmond Show. Emily has a passion for seeing other women thrive in business and helps service-based business owners book out with clients and then scale with online programs.  Having experienced multiple cases of sexual harassment in numerous workplaces, Emily started her own business in her mid 20’s and has since generated more than a million dollars and welcomed more than 1,000 people through her flagship online course, The Modern Marketing Collective. In this episode, Emily shares her journey and how she got to where she is today. We talk about some of the limiting beliefs and mindset challenges she had to overcome, what fuels her passion for gender equality, and what she hopes to see for the future.  Emily also shares some modern marketing tips and so much more. You’re going to love this episode.  Connect with Emily: Website: https://emilyosmond.com/ Instagram: @emilyosmond Podcast: The Emily Osmond Show CONNECT WITH ME: Download my FREE Limiting Beliefs Workbook here Join The Dreamers and Doers Membership Apply for 1:1 Business Coaching Visit my website Follow me on Instagram: @jess.williamson8

Lessons from a $150k quarter

It’s the end of the quarter so I stopped and checked my business numbers… And then I checked them again. I’m so so happy and proud to share with you that I am celebrating a $150k quarter!  $150k! To commemorate with all of you, I wanted to share the lessons I learnt from this incredibly abundant quarter. I would love for you to take these learnings and implement them into your own businesses right now.  Let’s discuss perspective and focus. I’ve been so concerned about getting everything organised in my business that I didn’t even realise that I had reached that incredible target in just 3 months.  So I wanted to ask you, what are you focusing on?  I had a client that lost three customers in a week and felt so let down and disappointed, but when we checked her numbers, she was only $300 away from reaching her target goal for the month (AND her monthly target was even $3,000 more than last month!).  Our brains always focus on what’s going wrong to protect us from danger but we need to rewire them to remember all of the amazing achievements we’ve made instead.  Have a look at your numbers. Numbers don’t lie, but our brains do. Change your perspective.  If I go back 3 years, I was so stressed and overworked running my businesses. I was frustrated, irritable and unleashed on everyone. I wanted to run a business that fulfills my lifestyle. Now I’m able to go to the beach when I want to, relax, watch shows on Netflix, and invest in my education. That is a huge win in my book! I don’t usually share my income because money is so relative to everybody and there are so many different factors to rate your success. I encourage you to reflect on your own journey and how your business has served your life.  Take a mental note to stop and be proud of what you’ve achieved.  There are all kinds of wins you’ll experience that are worth so much more than just the money you make. If you have come to believe in yourself and everything you’re capable of, that is the best win ever.  CONNECT WITH ME: Come On The Ignite the Dream Retreat: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/retreat Apply for the Mastermind: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/businessday-mastermind Join The Dreamers and Doers Membership Apply for 1:1 Business Coaching Visit my website Follow me on Instagram: @jess.williamson8

Planning your business around your cycle | Daniella Elias

Over the past year I have really focused on slowing down, stopping and resetting. I know this can be so difficult to achieve as we get caught up in the hustle of entrepreneurial life and we forget to bring our feminine energy and be kind to ourselves.  In this episode, I am chatting with Daniella Elias, the founder of Amity Created, a truly innovative self and soul-care brand. We talk about what creating space means to Daniella and how important it is to be conscious and present by checking in with your body and your emotions.  Five years ago, Daniella was a full time high school teacher experiencing heavy stress and overwhelm. She had no self care in her life at all and worked herself to the point of breakdown.  Her mother encouraged her to make herself a cup of tea and take a minute to rest and be still. This experience sparked a light bulb moment on the importance of mindfulness and checking in on her body and breath, and so Amity Created was born.  Daniella shares her incredibly valuable insight on how our cycles impact our energy levels, emotions, productivity and inspiration. She talks specifically on the influences of each different phase in our cycle (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn) so you can plan your projects with purpose.  If you take the time to reflect and understand how these seasons affect your energy and emotions, you’ll be able to prepare for your productivity, reschedule your work, and rest every month to accomplish everything in your business and align yourself with your body. To finish off, Daniella shares her key learnings and walks us through a breathwork exercise to clear your mind of everything else and give you a little moment of peace.  I am so grateful to have Daniella on the show, her warmth and knowledge are so so valuable and I would love for all of you to check it out.  CONNECT WITH DANIELLA: Website:     Daniella Elias: Self and Soul Growth        Amity Created | Self-care for the mind, body & soul Instagram:     @thedaniellaelias CONNECT WITH ME: Come On The Ignite the Dream Retreat: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/retreat Apply for the Mastermind: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/businessday-mastermind Join The Dreamers and Doers Membership Apply for 1:1 Business Coaching Visit my website Follow me on Instagram: @jess.williamson8

The Secret to Rest and its Benefits for Business

Is your business serving your life or is your life serving your business?  Are your days full of thinking just one more thing, just one more thing, and then before you know it the day has gone?  In today’s episode, I’m sharing with you a personal story about how I had to learn to slow down, rest, and then focus on building a business that lights me up.  A year ago I went to a retreat where I was able to have some down time without any phone service or wifi and I learnt something really important - I didn’t know how to not be productive.  When faced with trying to relax, I learnt that I’m so uncomfortable doing nothing. I was running my swimwear brand, my coaching, my membership, and my podcast. My mind was going a mile a minute and I didn’t know how to stop.  Giving myself the time to be still and reset was the most important thing I learnt from the retreat. My skin even cleared up. All this time my body was in overdrive and I didn’t even realise it.  I started to think, how can I build a business around my life?  As a result of this journey, I learnt to build up the systems and processes that allowed me to have the life I wanted outside of work and to prevent burn out. I was then able to build a business that lights me up and that I really really love running.  You need to decide what you want from your life.  I want you to remember, your to do list will never be done, but one day your life will be.  CONNECT WITH ME: Come On The Ignite the Dream Retreat: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/retreat Apply for the Mastermind: https://www.jessicawilliamson.com.au/businessday-mastermind Join The Dreamers and Doers Membership Apply for 1:1 Business Coaching Visit my website Follow me on Instagram: @jess.williamson8

My secret to learning fast - How to choose a coach

Now I have a business degree in Marketing and Management, a background in digital marketing and managed budgets of around $500,000 per month on ads in my corporate life.

Through all of this I have earned very valuable experience that I am able to pass onto my clients to fast track their success. I feel like I was born to coach and share my knowledge with all of you. I have found my purpose. Check out this episode and let me help you to learn quickly in your business and find a coach that will work for you.

3 Ways to Reduce Burnout & Stress | Sarah Patterson

You don’t have to sacrifice your health to run a successful business.  I know the current prevalent message of working ridiculous hours and hustling every day is what you are told you are supposed to do to succeed, BUT I know where it leads and how hard it is when you reach burnout.  In today’s episode, I am chatting with Sarah Patterson who is a naturopath and is really passionate about helping people turn their overwhelm and stress into calm, energy and clarity.  Sarah knows where you are coming from. She has faced her own burnout from working over 6 months doing ridiculously long hours and continuously pushing herself to keep going.  Incredibly, she managed to turn that around and get out of her burnout within 2 weeks!  Sarah shares her methods with us and reveals three really easy and effective ways to reduce burnout and stress.  Long term stress has such an enormous reaction in our bodies that manifests into frustrating physical symptoms as well as feeling overwhelmed, highly strung, irritable and numb.  It can lead to adrenal fatigue and bring your life to a stand still.  I want to say it again, you don’t have to sacrifice your health to have a successful business.  I encourage you to listen and reflect on your own stress relief practices. Remember, business can wait, everything else can wait, your health won’t.  CONNECT WITH ME: Check out Sarah’s instagram: @sarah_chelle_ Join The Dreamers and Doers Membership Apply for 1:1 Business Coaching Visit my website Follow me on Instagram: @jess.williamson8

Are you really supporting others?

I hear a lot of people talking lately about women supporting women and supporting small businesses. But how many of us are actually doing it? We’re programmed to think of ourselves first and have our needs at the forefront of our minds. It’s a very normal, natural part of being a human. But when was the last time you consciously stopped to think about someone else? With so many people in lockdown and businesses going through hard times, we need to be thinking of ways we can support each other. Really support each other.  What could you do TODAY to help a friend, peer, or business in your community? How could you support someone else? There’s room for us all to grow and achieve success in our businesses. So my challenge to you today is to think of one thing you could do to support someone else. This episode is from an IGTV I did recently and I wanted to share it with you all too because I feel that it’s an important message we all need to be reminded of.  Who are you going to support today?

Do you have shiny strategy syndrome?

Do you have shiny strategy syndrome? Are you chopping and changing from strategy to strategy because everyone else seems to be doing it and then not making any progress towards your goals?  I am here to tell you that you need to stop overcomplicating things and start sticking to simple strategies in your business. Trying to accomplish many different tasks each day is overwhelming and having your attention split between too many different projects at the same time is exhausting. This constant cycle will lead to a lack of productivity and a dwindling sense of direction.  Running your dream business doesn’t need to be complicated.  In this episode I will discuss with you the four questions that you need to ask yourself to set clear and simple strategies specific for your business, and work towards accomplishing your goals.  I have helped many clients to simplify their business to see real results. They now have more energy to put into the strategies that work for them, and time to enjoy life.  Remember, the answer is not more strategies, energy output and money! Perseverance and simplifying your business strategies with a direct approach to your goals is key.
