There are a few things that are truly exceptional about Jack Tanasi and here are just a few that stand out from this conversation/ interview:

* he started his e-Commerce store completely from scratch. He did not have a product, didn't have a store. He created something from nothing

* during the early days of the enforced Melbourne lockdown – one of the longest lockdowns – Jack spent his time interviewing entrepreneurs who had started e-commerce brands “instead of playing Play Station like most people.”  He asked questions and "was a total sponge soaking up all their information."

* He tells of how he learned the most from the smallest of the 10 business owners he spoke with and it was a lot of the little things – that some of the bigger brands didn’t have issues with. This matters to a startup business.

This is so insightful – we look at the large companies for ideas and inspiration – and in fact small business is where many of our best lessons are. 

* He talks about taking that 1 product and creating 7 different SKUs – so smart! 

* Finding a name that he could have both here in Australia and across the globe – and that has not all been smooth sailing – there were some big challenges and fortunately that has all been sorted out. He tells us about it in this episode.

* He has a 3 days action plan and holds himself accountable to implement an idea within 3 days.

* Jack is big on Time Management and has fixed ways he organises his day and that how he gets so much done in a day, in a week, in a month.

* Feedback comes from customers and they pride themselves on a fast response. They fix problems quickly.

* He says: "Be a sponge, learn as much as you can – constantly"

 

I think you are going to really find this episode helpful and informative as you look to grow your business.

Welcome back to 2021.

Having taken a bit of a break to enjoy sunshine and the wonderful surf in the morning and some "laying on the couch reading with cats" time in the afternoons - now I'm back.  Thank you for tuning in.

I've never really been a "goal setter" and have to admit the whole Great Big Hairy Goal discussion makes me squeamish! In this "just me" podcast episode I describe my personal approach to business today.

Inspired by a few different things that I've been thinking about and working on in the past few months, I'm taking a very singular view and focussing on The One Thing that I can do right now to achieve my daily, weekly and monthly goal.

Please notice that I use the singular goal - not the plural goals! Having too many goals, I have found, leads to nothing being done particularly well. 

Please also notice that in this episode I tend to use "can do" rather than "must do" or "need to do" (well, most of the time) do let me know if you hear a "need to" sneak in!  Language is one of my other projects i.e. as regards the language I use - all aligned to my One Goal.

Accelerate your Business Financial Confidence is starting soon - 6 week Accelerator program that will change your life completely and forever  https://www.healthynumbers.com.au/money/

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

Gabriella Rosa graduated as a Naturopath with a Bachelor of Health Science almost 20 years ago and has been running her business pretty much since graduating.

Gabriela is the author of 4 books.

She has a Master of Science in Medicine (Reproductive Health and Human Genetics) from The University of Sydney and has recently completed clinical research program at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health where she was awarded The Scholar Award for academic excellence.

She is currently working towards a Masters in Public Health.

It's not all academic, Gabriela has a world wide impact:

In the past 10 years she has run free online events that have helped educate more than 140 000 people across more than 100 countries. One of here events was for more than 12 000 people in a 12 day free online event – this cost $80 000 to put this event together and run online.

The reason that Gabriela is able to run her free events for so many people is because her business is financially successful.

If you have been listening to previous conversations you know that one of my favourite questions is “when did you feel your business was real?” and Gabrialla’s answer is completely different to any other we have heard – she said “Last week” and laughs.

She goes on to explain what she means “As your business progresses you face different challenges”

"In that moment the business is real and then it becomes unreal again."

Gabriela is really honest about how she made the huge change from the entire business being in a physical location as well as relying on her individual effort – hours for dollars - and building something that was one to many. The changes happened in 2013 – she closed her physical practice and "took everything online."

She speaks really honestly about the thinking process about choosing a niche and tells a truly helpful example of how she has landed where she is today in her business - the pathway to finding the people she works with and solves their number 1 issue

I am personally inspired by what she says about her focus on THE MOST challenging cases that led her to where she is today. 

Gabriella asks a really powerful question: what is the highest price that you can comfortable ask for?

This underpins her premise that Pricing is a self image question.

Gabriela is the author of 4 books:

NEW! Fertility Breakthrough: Overcoming infertility and miscarriage when other treatments have failed


Protecting Your Fertility: The Dangers of Conventional Pest Control and Natural, Safe Alternatives Revealed by Gabriela Rosa


Eat Your Way To Parenthood: The Diet Secrets of Highly Fertile Couples Revealed by Gabriela Rosa

Today I want to take us through the basic belief cycle – you may have seen this before or have had it explained to you before … and I especially want to use some of our beliefs about our ability to understand money as an example

The basic belief cycle = we start with our beliefs and our thoughts - our thoughts and our beliefs lead to our feelings - our feelings lead to the actions we take - and then our actions determine the results we achieve - our results then impact our beliefs and out thoughts and so we go around and around

In today's episode I use our beliefs about money and understanding how money works in our business and I follow the cycle through what happens to many of my clients.

My gift to you from this episode is a way for you to shift that self belief - to jump the line from where you are to where you can be!

This is my Christmas gift to you …. Your belief in yourself :

It is absolutely possible for me to understand how money works in my business

Listen in to this short episode where I give you the action to take to shift your beliefs and your thoughts. 

1 action - that's all and repeated daily. Micro changes not massive changes are what we need right now.

Micro changes

Trust me, this works!

Accelerate your Business Financial Confidence is starting soon - 6 week Accelerator program that will change your life completely and forever  https://www.healthynumbers.com.au/money/

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

Julie Goodall takes the solo out of being a solopreneur and in this honest and practical discussion Julie shares the wisdom of building and growing her business over the past 6 years.

Highlights in this interview:

What she wished she'd done differently? Realised which clients were the "best fit" for her business.

How did she get started? It was when a previous client described her as "like having an extra right arm" and she realised that all the things she loves to do – others don’t! and therein lay her business opportunity!

She talks about the “life changing” value of hiring a coach. Julie learned how to set boundaries “and as an empath, I always wanted to say “Yes” to everyone.”

Julie knew exactly how much her business needed to pay her to support their family of 4 – she loves being across the numbers. Music to my ears.

When you understand how money works in your business your life changes completely and forever !!

A few weeks ago a came across this book: The XX Brain by Dr Lisa Mosconi Click here for more information

Over the past decade we have come to know so much more about the brain – through neuroscience and brain studies and extensive research.

Dr Lisa is especially interested in women’s health – and preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s

One of the things Dr Lisa talks about in her book is the importance of sleep - for the brain

I love to sleep - and to sleep well!

I believe our confidence is directly affected by how much sleep we get. I know my confidence certainly is related to how much sleep I have.... maybe you find the same??

It occurred to me that this is a key ingredient to be more successful in business - being more confident

In this episode I discuss the impact effective sleep has on your confidence and therefore, on your business success.

It's a short 12 minute episode packed with information to grow your confidence FAST!

My guess is that you are here because you are a business owner and you want to increase your financial intelligence & business acumen.

You want to have confident conversations when it comes to talking about money

You want to make business decisions based on data and facts

… so that ultimately you can build financial autonomy through business success.

Highlights from this episode:

1. What happens when you don't pay attention to the numbers?! You just might get a very pleasant surprise!

2. The unexpected benefits of identifying your niche - which she wishes she had done "much earlier" than she did:

  • collaboration opportunities
  • content creation
  • speaking to your ideal client
  • understanding the platforms they use in their business - this is especially important for Jessica 

3. She tells us "I have a degree in design - not a business degree. I didn't get any training in how to run a business." Jessica has a unique perspective on the role of business coaches and others for specific projects in her business.

and much more

Jessica Freeman started her business Jess Creatives more than 10 years ago - designing T-shirts as a college project. She charged a whopping $10 + she always got one of the T-shirts!

Fast forward to when she was able to quit her corporate job when she realised she was making more money designing websites and providing copy as a side hustle - than she was even being paid in her job!

That's when she tells us "Pay attention to the numbers!"

Settle in for a terrific conversation with Jessica Freemen

Jessica mentions in the interview that she was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at the age of 30. She has written a book to help others in similar situation:

It's called The Type 1 Life and you can find out more here: www.thetype1life.com

The latest data from the 2021 Sales Enablement from Hubspot report says:

* 84% of buyers now kick off their buying process with a referral.

* 9 out of 10 buying decisions are made with peer recommendations.

* 92% of buyers trust referrals from people they know

Here is the one that I find most staggering ... and is the reason for this episode:

After a positive experience 83% of customers would be happy to provide a referral - that's good to know! 

BUT!! no-one is asking them for referrals -- so, just 29% of customers end up giving a referral.

Call me crazy ... this seems like such a waste of opportunity, isn't it?

That means that 54 out of every happy customers who could refer your business or recommend you - are not being asked.

Today I give you the steps to change this in your business - right now.

You can change this. Know what you need to do, take action and be consistent

Listen now .... and let me know what action you will take today.

What happens when another business like yours opens up nearby?

Whether a new business opens up physically near you or in the online world - no matter what industry you are in, there will always be others doing what you do and offering what you offer.

How do you think about it?

Do you view them as a direct competitor?

Do you view them as indirect competition? and view it as being helpful and healthy for your whole industry?

In todays episode I talk about some real examples of similar businesses being physically right there beside other businesses in the same industry.

I ask the question "What if we take a collaborative approach?"

I believe you will find todays episode interesting and thought provoking.

Barbara Mutedzi is a guest with an astonishing background - a Conscious Leadership Coach & a Social and Medical Anthropologist trained in Neuroscience based coaching.

This is such an intelligent discussion about Barbara's life and her business startup story as she shares her thoughts and experiences.

We talk about money - how she funded her startup, how she figures out her pricing and what she wished she'd done differently regarding the money side of her business.

Barbara has a unique perspective on FEAR and mindset which is solidly based in her studies and life experiences.

She is practical an d at the same time encouraging and optimistic. When I ask the question "what do you say to someone dreaming of their own business?"

She says "Put your Purpose in the Drivers seat and put fear in the boot and take the first step!"

As the Founder of the Design Your Life Foundation, she uses her holistic 3D-DYL Protocol, scientifically backed in neuroscience, consciousness, psychology and anthropology, to help people positively transform for higher impact at personal, professional and business level.

Fear holds many people back from truly making their impact in the world, from being more true to who they want to be, who they are meant to be.

Maybe this is you?

I usually consider myself to be brave, to be courageous and yet at times I find myself - apprehensive - that's my word for fear!

We've learned to name it other things.

In this episode I talk about a technique that I have found incredibly helpful. It's making friends with fear and understanding what my fear is protecting me from.

You may have heard of neuroscience which has given us incredible understanding of how our brains work.

Leah Weinberg helps couples plan their wedding - she is a wedding planner.

For 10 years Leah was a lawyer and she has left that behind her to build her own business. 

This is quite a story. She talks about money and pricing and the tough times when it feels so personal and what you can do to move on ... She says that rejection feels especially personal when you start out in a business that's provides a service.  Rejection is part of being in business.  She assures us that "your skin will toughen and it will hurt less …” and that's what I have found as well.

She believes there is somebody for everybody AND there really is enough business to go around.

And this is how she counteracts the “non-wins” and how she uses this belief to help not take things so personally …

Leah is fun to chat with, this is a friendly interview and I believe you will enjoy listening in.

Sarah Wolfer is the Founder and CEO of Girl Boss Sports, a Seattle based start-up.

She is working toward two very important goals:

1) Keeping girls in sports and

2) Increasing the number of women sports coaches.

Sarah has been a soccer player and coach for most of her life including playing at the semi-professional level and coaching at the collegiate level.

She consistently found that there was a lack of female representation and equity across all aspects of sports and she decided to do something about it in 2018 when she started Girl Boss Sports.

In this episode she talks about what it is about participating in sport that translates into business leadership and much more.

This is one of the In between episodes and today I consider the questions: Are we our own algorithm?

I'd been thinking about the Jim Rohn quote about the 5 people we spend most time with and especially as this applies to the way I'm living at the moment. 

Do I have 5 people?

Who are my 5 people?

Our minds are amazing and the more we learn about how the mind works, the more convinced I am that we can be who we want to be and we can do anything we want to do …

Have a listen and please let me know what you think. I'd love to know
