We’ve just completed our third school year of homeschooling and I’ve received a lot of questions about homeschooling from entrepreneur friends and friends of friends - online and in my local community here in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. 

The main question >> how do you homeschool AND run a business? How is this even possible?

Up to now I’ve connected 1:1 with these brave, curious souls, but have been wanting to create this episode so I can share tips and lessons learned with a wider audience. It is my intention to help you walk this path with confidence and grace if you choose to. 

Homeschooling has been such a blessing for our family. It was the thing I never wanted that I have come to realize I always wanted. These moments - although many of them are HARD - are moments we will always treasure with our children.

Tune in as I share the answers to the most common questions I’ve received through the years. And please do share this episode with a friend who is contemplating this path for her family.

xoxo

Laura Garnett believes that work can and should be one of the most rewarding aspects of life. I agree. Unfortunately not everyone has figured out exactly HOW to make this dream their reality. That’s where this episode of Get Gutsy comes in handy.

Laura is a performance strategist who honed her chops at Google, Capital One and an internet startup. It was at this startup that she was laid off. Instead of letting that setback defeat her, Laura decided to move forward and create her dream job from scratch by asking herself two questions: “who am I?” and “what am I meant to do?”

These questions led Laura down the path of entrepreneurship and discovering her methodology for finding long-lasting professional happiness and building the GENIUS HABIT that makes extraordinary accomplishment all but guaranteed.

Listen to this conversation to learn what kind of habits you need to build in order to do things differently, be more aligned with who you are, and achieve what you want.

 

Tune in to discover:

  • How the methodology in Laura’s book “The Genius Habit” was developed and the talk that motivated her to get it done
  • How to respond when things don’t feel right in business
  • The moment she pivoted and decided to build her own business
  • How she was able to successfully navigate the shift to build her network from entrepreneurial clients to corporate clients
  • Why you need a sales engine in your business (and what hers is)
  • How she didn’t let years of work and a number of no’s from publishers hold her back from getting a book deal and publishing her book
  • How tracking systems are game changers
  • Why it is important to come up with your own definition of success

 

About Our Guest:

Laura is a performance strategist, TEDx speaker, and the creator of the Genius Habit. She works with CEOs and executives to identify their unique genius and purpose, and craft an actionable plan to leverage them in their day-to-day work.

She has consulted with organizations including Capital One, Open Table, LinkedIn, and Instructure. Prior to launching her own company, New York City-based Garnett Consulting, she honed her marketing, strategy, and career-refining skills at companies like Capital One, American Express, IAC, and Google.

One of your greatest assets is the ability and courage to say what you really mean.

It’s easy to beat around the bush or water down your truth for fear of being misunderstood or criticized.

The desire to want to play it safe and blend in is real.

But this is not wise.

Today, I invite you to truly go there.

Speak the truth.

Live the truth.

Be the truth in your words and in your work.

This episode features a live training from my Cash In On Your Calling series that is currently running in my Facebook group called Gutsy Leaders of Wisdom. It’s a free offering all this month so come on in and join us. The training you’ll hear today is all about SAYING WHAT YOU MEAN TO SAY.

I also share some insights into why Gabby Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass changed my life and why I believe in it so deeply for my community.

xoxo

Being a coach and growing your business is a spiritual quest and faith walk. This journey will bring to your knees. You must be willing to heal your wounds and become the strongest leader possible. This is not easy. You’ll have many twists and turns. And you’ll meet many incredible people on the journey with messages you’re meant to receive.

Tara Mullarkey is one of these women I’m blessed to have met. And now I get to share her brilliance with you. I know you’re going to get so much out of this conversation! Get ready to get rocked.

Tara is a business coach and feminine embodiment mentor who started her career on a traditional corporate path. A layoff from her well-paying corporate job was manifested through her spiritual work, and led her on an unplanned 3-year journey around the world to find herself and follow her destiny. Having the courage to live in places like Thailand, Bali, and Tulum allowed her to crush her limiting beliefs and ignore the naysayers to get to where she is today.

She encourages women to do the inner work on themselves, embrace the fact that therapy is necessary, not taboo, and understand that strong women will change the world.

Tune in to discover:

  • How Tara crushed her limiting beliefs to transition from her traditional corporate background to her spiritual coaching work
  • Her early experience with yoga training and how she distanced herself from voices of criticism
  • How her travels around the world shaped her spiritual development and knowledge of her work
  • The changes that made her decide to fully immerse herself in her business
  • One thing that irritates her about the coaching industry
  • Why you can’t help and teach others before you have done the work on yourself
  • Why the crisis will create the change
  • What she thinks her gutsiest and most creative move has been so far

 

About Our Guest:

Tara is a Master Business Coach & Feminine Embodiment Mentor, creator of the Online Temple School for the Divine Feminine, the High Ticket Empress Business Course, a podcast host, and facilitates workshops and intensives around the world.

She works with women on reclaiming their Sovereignty - sensually, emotionally, financially.

After quitting corporate America and finishing her MBA, she traveled the world in India, Thailand, Bali, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Tulum, Mexico, and built a half a million dollar personal development and media company.

Through her own healing to overcome trauma, complex-PTSD from family of origin attachment wounds, anger, shame, and codependency, she share her truths vulnerably from a deep sense of compassion and she deeply believes that sensually empowered, embodied, and wealthy women will change the world.

"True love - that is, deep, abiding love that is impervious to emotional whims or fancy - is a choice. It's a constant commitment to a person regardless of the present circumstances." - Mark Manson

On June 4, 2005, Steven and I went ALL IN.

And we keep saying YES over and over again.

Is it always easy? No.

But it's right.

It's home.

And it keeps getting better.

14 years of marriage has taught me a lot of lessons that can be applied to business and entrepreneurship. And I’m going to share them with you in this episode.

When my path crossed with Martine De Luna, I knew immediately she was a superstar.

One of my jobs as a coach is to spot talent. And Martine’s got it.

I’ve had the good fortune of coaching Martine - a mindset coach and personal brand strategist - in a few of my programs and helping her step more fully into her great work.

Hailing from the Philippines, Martine has a uniquely global perspective. On today’s show, she gets raw and real about letting go of her martyr mentality, questioning everything, stepping away from the traditional path and finding your bliss. Martine’s story proves that even when tough experiences are thrown your way, you don’t have to stay broken. You can break through.

Come and hear what Martine is taking a stand for in her work (this had her tossing and turning until she was ready to claim it). It’s powerful!

Tune in to discover:

  • Why she gets up in the morning
  • Her international upbringing as a third culture kid
  • How she followed her intuition and learned to question everything to follow the aligned path
  • How applying for a freelancer position that she found on Craigslist really paid off
  • Her journey as a blogger and a consultant to bloggers
  • Why she consistently seeks out and invests in mentors to help her grow
  • The series of events that broke her and caused her to shift her plan of action, and the business that got her back on her feet
  • The power of repetition

 

About Our Guest:

Martine is a Mindset Coach & Blissful Personal Brand Strategist for freedom-minded women who are hacking life to create a lifestyle of bliss and abundance in all areas.

Emily Utter is a force. I first discovered her wearing underwear in her photos on Facebook. “Who is this woman?” I thought. Then I read her words. Over and over again, I’d see her posts and be blown away because the girl can write. And quite frankly, when someone can captivate with their words, they have my attention.

That’s what led to this conversation between me and Emily Utter, an adventurous entrepreneur who runs her coaching business from wherever she happens to be at the moment. Emily has the gift of persuasion and we can talk about how to harness that in your business.

Now Emily uses her platform to help entrepreneurs wade through the junk and the bad advice that’s out there so they can sell with confidence and fully express themselves with their work.

Tune in to discover:

  • What Emily calls “personality-based marketing” and why you should stop pretending to be someone else and instead show who you are to the world
  • How her early days in AmeriCorps taught her about activism and the power of persuasion
  • What it took for her to push through her fear and invest in her first high-end coaching program
  • How to re-evaluate your programs and make sure you are still having fun and doing work you love
  • How she makes her program launches work by using social media
  • The importance of equity and diversity in business

 

About Our Guest:

Emily Utter is a business coach for adventurous coaches, healers and service-based entrepreneurs who want to scale their "location independent" businesses and work from anywhere in the world!

Emily works with coaches, healers, and consultants to get out of the hustle, stop over giving, and start growing sustainable income that supports a healthy and happy freedom-filled lifestyle.
