Rank #7: 37: How Media Coverage Has Helped Boost Our Brand And Business

Podcast cover
Read more
In episode 37 on #MerryBiz we talk you through the exact steps we take (and have taken) to get featured on the media! We've been featured across multiple newspapers, magazines and TV and today we want to inspire you to make it happen for your business and brand! We're talking traditional media like newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. These channels can still create a certain reputation for your brand, even though many websites reach more people these days. Which means that you can use these steps for everything and anything: media coverage, guest posts, interviews on podcasts, working with brands. We go into detail in today's episode but here are the overall steps you need to take to get featured in the media. ONE: make a list of media outlets you want to be featured on. Keep that list handy and always update it when you find new channels. It's a good idea to grab their contact details too if you can. TWO: engage with them online. We're talking commenting, liking, sharing their content as well as consuming their content (so you can better understand the kind of stuff they like and what they're looking for in a story). THREE: email them with an offer they CAN'T refuse. In today's episode we give you a SUPER tip which will make your pitch even more appealing. PLUS in episode 36 with Janet Murray she gives you an exact pitching strategy (yes... listen to that one!).  FOUR: follow up and follow up again. But like, don't be annoying! FIVE: enjoy yoself! Don't make this a horrible task. Enjoy the process and celebrate the moments where you are featured! We like to re-share all of our features on the blog right HERE! Here's some other tips: Subscribe to SourceBottle (or something similar). Self-publish and have an opinion! If you have a blog already... BOOM! Good job. Because your content has the potential to get seen or picked up (like THIS post did for us) and media outlets may contact you for an interview or simply ask to republish your content. Gotta love that! So take a listen to today's episode and get inspired to take ACTION to get your face in the media! Yay!

Rank #8: 134: How To Stop Caring About What Others Think And Say About You

Podcast cover
Read more
How often do you worry about what others think about you? Does it stop you from doing stuff? Does it impact your behaviour? Does it stop you living your truth? Does it stop you living your life?  What about when people actually start talking about you? What the heck do you do in these situations? How can you move through this in an easier way? During this Get Merry podcast we discuss this topic. We also give some pretty good tips too.  Tune in, then let us know what you think! Send us a message on social media, share your biggest takeaway.  Stuff we talked about... when we worry about what others think of us it's actually self-judgement. It's all made up in our own heads... whatever we are worried about other people thinking, we are actually thinking. So what is the real issue? when people say stuff about others it is only but a projection of their own inner world.   whatever people say about you... it's none of your business.  so much more.... and of course we have our own aha moments.  If you loved this episode check out the other Get Merry podcast episodes!

Rank #9: 66: Live Interview With Melissa Ambrosini, Epic Chats: Relationships, Meditation, Mindset And SO Much More

Podcast cover
Read more
In today's epic episode we welcome Melissa Ambrosini back into the studio! If you missed her first episode on #MerryBiz, head back to episode 7! But this one has some serious EPIC moments that will leave you feeling extra inspired and generally amazing. If you want to be the best version of yourself you've got to say "yes" to you. This sometimes means saying "no thank you" to  others. Some questions we asked... What's happening in your world? How's work going? What's new? Can we even call it work? What do you call it? How do you choose what you do next in your business? What about if you feel like you're 'full' but you fall in love with someone who isn't 'full'? How often do you meditate? What type of meditation do you do? (Social Media and Email) How do you deal with making sure you're still taking action to reach your goals but you're doing in a way where you're tuned in? "You can't control what's going to happen in the world. But you can control the way you react." Some AHA! Moments in this episode... Following your gut is always a feeling, you can't really logically explain it, where fear is more dialogue in your head. We can choose in every moment to react how we want to react. Why relationships are an incredible playground for personal growth. The way you cultivate awareness is by coming back inside to your true self. The power of changing your state. Why you need to learn to be fully present. "Don't wear multitasking as a badge of honor... just be present." For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Rank #11: 199: how to be happy when everyone's life looks perfect (and not be jealous)

Podcast cover
Read more
How often do you find yourself comparing your life to someone else's life? You compare your beauty to their beauty, their career success to yours, their relationship to yours (or lack of).Right now, we are living in a time where it's the easiest it has ever been to compare our lives to someone else's. All we have to do is pick up our phones, scroll on Instagram and boom you instantly see 'perfection'.
But we can not blame social media, we must take responsibility for our actions and HOW we use social media. Because comparison, jealousy and envy have been a part of human existence for much longer than Instagram!
Stuff we talked about…
  • Comparison, jealousy and envy have been a part of life since human existence... well since Greek Myths anyway (haha).
  • How to not be jealous.
  • Check your self-worth and self-esteem.
  • Celebrate other people's success! Why make everything about you?!
  • Get your gratitude on! Count your blessings instead of focusing on what you don't have.

Podcast cover

This episode is really quite strange, yes it's about kindness but it's more like an actual Emma and Carla conversation about our lives (maybe this is every episode? Hah).

Stuff we talked about…

Send us a message after you listen and we will leave you with this by Og Mandino..."Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight.
