This is an in-between episodes. In between the Interviews!

Today I talk about affirmations, what they mean to me, how I use them and why I believe they are more than just "believe it and you will see it"

I first became aware of affirmations when I was in high school and they have remained part of my life since then.

I outline a fabulous way to use affirmations for yourself and this is your CTA from this episode

I share some of my personal favourites

I'd love to hear how you use affirmations. Let me know ingrid@healthynumbers.com.au or leave me a comment wherever you listen to this podcast.

I mention the Oprah series and you can find week 1 here:

It’s been quite a journey for Andrea Uvanni and we are fortunate that she shares some of her experience with us here in this episode.

If you are in an environment where you are the only one like you and everyone questions your skills and abilities – take heart from Andrea’s story

It has taken the past 10 years for her to find her way, to become someone whom her peers no longer question, and in fact accept her knowledge, and even seek her opinion. 10 long years.

This is partly because she has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge over the past 10 years – and it is also due to the number of hurdles overcome, the discriminations fought through and biases proven wrong.

Sound familiar?

Andrea speaks passionately about building her own consulting business. She is smart, persistent and extremely passionate about the work she does with her clients

In this interview she talks about her approach to goal setting and planning

She speaks about dealing with rejection and how not to take it personally

If you have your notebook ready and work along with Andrea in this interview it will almost feel like having your own private session.

I’m trying something new this month and I'm keen to know from you if it's helpful? and will I keep doing it?

Between the regular interviews I’m sharing my thoughts on a particular aspect of business that will help take you closer to business success and ultimately Financial Independence.

Please let me know if this is a useful "in between" episode to our regular podcast interviews. We’ll be back next week with an interview – and for the next few weeks I’ll be here with the in-between weeks' thoughts and ideas

If you have questions about achieving Financial Independence through building your viable and thriving business – send me an email ingrid@h... I answer all my own emails

Today I am talking about the very important questions:

Where are you going?

What do you want your business to be?

What do you want your business to give you?

To answer these questions I introduce you to Chris Hadfield, an astronaut.

What can an astronaut teach about business? A lot! Listen in and let me know what you think.

Amy Foley started her own business to have more time and more flexibility in her own life

Irony, she does exactly this for her clients through providing a "plug and play" service.  She provides back-office support and team augmentation for digital agencies.

This is not your traditional business startup story. Amy's life changed when she least expected - we can all relate to this in one way or another.  What her employers say to her is almost unbelievable. So she took her life into her own hands and the rest is - as they say - "history!!"

If you want to know how to build a business entirely on referrals - this is the episode for you. It's an astounding achievement and especially from those first 3 clients!

For anyone building team and especially if you have not had much experience with recruitment, Amy is Super Generous with sharing their recruitment process.

After many years in the corporate world of Retail HR, Jo Dodds started her home based business in August 2005.

In this episode of So You Want to Start a Business Jo tells us about that first business and the iterations to reach the business she runs today - Power to Live More

Pricing is always one of the sticky/ tricky aspects for people in a service based business.

Listen out as Jo explains the Risk Reversal Guarantee pricing strategy she started out using in her publishing business.

She now uses this in her service based business – smart strategy. She said it was a “no brainer” for her.

We have quite a lengthy discussion about having the mindset to be able to charge what you believe you are worth. I think you’ll find it helpful because so many people tell me this is where they get stuck!

Like many of our guests Jo identifies tenacity as one of her key characteristics and she and I have a similar positive outlook on life.

I have been on Jo's podcast - episode number 153 click here to listen to that one where I chat with Jo about How to Make Good Decisions in business.

I truly think you are going to enjoy this interview conversation as Jo tells her wonderful business startup story.

Emotional intelligence expert, speaker and author Bonnie Kelly teaches people how to de-weed their minds of unhelpful emotions and become emotionally resilient by recognizing and weeding out Negative Core Beliefs—hurtful subconscious power statements we believe to be true about ourselves, such as: “I’m not good enough,” I don’t deserve to be loved” or “I can’t do anything right.”

In this high energy conversation with Bonnie we talk about all the things have contributed to Bonnie building the successful business she has today.

We talk about getting feedback - from people who are qualified to give us feedback on any given topic. Feedback vs seeking approval. 

Bonnie says "Don't allow your results of yesterday to define your tomorrow" and she comes back to her key theme and the value she provides:

She ends self-sabotage. She says:

It's not your fault, but it is your responsibility.


In this interview conversation Bonnie talks about the topics she covers in her book:

“True to Your Core: Uncovering the Subconscious Beliefs Wreaking Havoc in Your Life”  

In this book, Bonnie guides people to recognize the weight of regrets, shame and guilt from the past and how they are currently impacting our present lives.

Through bringing these unconscious patterns into our conscious awareness, Bonnie supports people to move from victim to victory. It's never too late to de-weed your life and cultivate a healthy, organic emotional state!

Emily Soccorsy [So-KOR-SEE] and Justin Foster are co-founders of Root + River, an intrinsic branding practice.

They believe that the 20th century approach to manufacturing brands is over - where branding meant creating a contrived perception (think: Marlboro Man, Betty Crocker). Most often, the manufactured brand was detached from the reality of what happened inside the company and inside the leader’s heart and mind. How even more true is this right now?

A new, more humanistic and experiential age is daening, based on the idea that branding is how other people experience what you believe.

In this episode they talk about their business startup successes and challenges. 

This is a special episode because we get to explore the nature of beug in a business partnership and how this has fully enhanced their business success.

Linda Patten is founder of Dare2Lead with Linda. She is the author of The Art of Herding Cats: Leading Teams of Leaders and that alone was a terrific reason for us to meet! Any long term listeners know what a cat person I am! and yes, herding cats is certainly a challenge!

Her life’s work is challenging women to dare to lead: whether it is for navigating the often-daunting entrepreneurial world, building strong teams for a thriving business, stepping out of the shadows into the light as a leader of one’s life, or learning the leadership skills that will grow the seeds of change into a world-level movement.

She shares her own business journey with us and one of the key standouts for me is when Linda talks about serving others:

"Have a vision for what you want to achieve, tell everyone and then be curious about what they are trying to achieve. What is their vision and what do they need and how does your vision match their need?"

Linda is an international keynote speaker and international best-selling author, syndicated radio show host,  leadership expert on all things Leadership.

With 40 years of leadership experience spanning the military (including protocol officer to a 4-star general), corporate, and entrepreneurial arenas, Linda is uniquely qualified to guide women on their journey of self-discovery, skills development, and a charted course toward becoming an extraordinary leader.

Her book and 12-step program, The Art of Herding Cats: Leading Teams of Leaders, are rooted in her heartfelt vision to empower women to step out, step up, and step into the kind of leadership that creates positive change in the world.

Her latest book, No One Stood Up When I Entered the Room: One Woman’s Journey from Command to True Leadership show why Comfluential™ leadership will redefine what leadership is.

Jill Valdez could be described as an "accidental entrepreneur" or business owner.

This is an episode for everyone because Jill works with companies to help them grow and improve their business without spending anything extra on marketing!

She has a strong focus on people development and how to motivate employees.

When a corporate restructure caused her to jump from not-for-profit to the for-profit sector Jill quickly realised that her skills for creating systems and developing efficient processes would fill a void for her potential clients.

Her passion for people living a life of purpose compelled her to developing strategies for employees to be engaged to perform at a higher level.  

The book Jill refers to:

Putting Woodstock, Connecticut on the map.

It’s not every day that a new sport is created - but that’s exactly what happened when three friends from a small town in Connecticut combined an old game called four square and volleyball. Growing up together in the “Quiet Corner” of CT, brothers Greg and Chris Meade constantly sought new sports and activities to keep them busy with their childhood friend Mike Delpapa. 

The three friends struck an idea for a four-way volleyball game that merged traditional volleyball with the four square. By dividing the court into four quadrants, rather than in half, they envisioned a new game. After creating a prototype, inviting their friends to come play and not being able to turn them away they knew we were onto something!

Since that moment over 2 years ago, the trio has made it their mission to spread the game of CROSSNET throughout the world.

Zhenya Gerson had a goal when she established Exhale Wellness Spa - to create a space for people to relax, be nourished and supported through whatever health issues they may be
experiencing.

She is deeply passionate about helping people with their gut health, making it easier to get through their day, to think more clearly, and avoid the ‘tummy rumble’ in middle of that important meeting with your boss. Colonics are not just for those
with tummy troubles, they have so many benefits.

Zhenya has been a long-term and passionate advocate for the use of a footstool when doing your ‘bathroom business’ and was introduced to the PROPPR.  She immediately loved its
sleek and attractive design and the clinic soon became a stockist.

THEN .... the Proppr Products business was listed on the market. Fast forward a few months and Zhenya is now the co-owner of the PROPPR with business partner Jacqueline.

In this interview Zhenya speaks candidly about her business journey - both her Wellness Spa as well as now owning a product business.

Dr. Grace helps professionals to reinvent their careers through her coaching and her programs that are rooted in neuroscience. Her clients learn to discover their purpose, decide on a career direction, build their dream career, and grow their income.

 

An educator focused on excellence, Dr. Grace has said, "No matter what your educational or vocational background, behind every success there is a mountain of obstacles and an ocean of unfavorable odds. Everything looks like a failure halfway through. Progress often disguises itself as problems when in fact it is evidence of growth and improvement."

 

Dr Grace has spent 10 years helping professionals reinvent their careers, Dr. Grace has deep empathy for those from very humble beginnings. Her personal journey from being orphaned and then homeless at the age of 9 provided the backdrop for her to develop resilience and resourcefulness to survive. After a serendipitous meeting with an older couple who would later become her adoptive parents, Dr. Grace found that her story was resonating, especially how she leveraged education as her "ticket to freedom".
