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. I welcome your comments - please email me ingrid@healthynumbers.com.au or come join us in Healthy Numbers Profit Lab FB Group - and if FB not your "thing" I totally get it, I'm a huge fan of LinkedIn - so come connect with me there, if not already.

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.

The One Percent is the Category of One where you stand out head and shoulders from the crowd.

Business is more than tactics and strategies, it’s about who you are as a person, it’s about your mindset and it’s deeply personal.

You are tuning in today because:

Did you know that 96% of C suite execs across the US played sport in their teenage years!?!􏰖􏰗􏰂􏰇 􏰘􏰆􏰙􏰙 􏰀􏰚􏰆􏰂􏰛􏰙􏰪

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

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.

Repeating positive affirmations and expecting things to change doesn't work. This is because it targets the conscious level of your mind - not the unconscious.

Affirmations need to be supported by action – they don’t work on their own

Recently I gave my Thrive coaching group an activity to highlight their unique gifts. They all said it is a terrific reminder of just how much they have achieved!  

In this epidote I share this same activity for you to use for yourself and this is your CTA from this episode.

Please do let me know how it goes

I share some of my personal favourites

I'd love to hear how you use affirmations. Let me know on 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 over on Youtube:

Enjoy!!

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.

Links from the show:

The Book:

Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me about Ingenuity, Determination, and Being

The music:

“Ground Control to Major Tom”
