“We all start in business thinking we’re going to do what we love and it’s going to be great, but there’s so many other parts that we didn’t expect... We need to bounce back easy from these things.”

— Julie Greenham

If I were to ask you what you believe to be the #1 trait that you need in order to run your business effectively, what would you say?

Most people believe that “confidence” is the top trait of successful business owners. I happen to have a different opinion!

As business owners, we don’t often start off feeling confident. The early days of a start-up can be nerve wracking — and so can many of the days that we experience after years of running established businesses! Confidence is something that grows over time, so I don’t think it’s the most helpful way to frame success.

I think that the #1 trait that contributes to success is resiliency.

It’s resiliency, not confidence, that helps us keep going after setbacks, challenges, and even failures. Resiliency is what helps us turn mistakes into opportunities for growth. In this episode, I share 3 tips that will help you build your own resiliency in your business!

It all starts right now — just press play!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • The two questions that you should be asking yourself right now regarding your business
  • Why you should invest energy into building a circle of business buddies, rather than just friends and family
  • How to switch from a victim perspective to a results perspective

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:46 Confidence

01:35 Resiliency

03:30 Building on your strengths

03:52 Ditch the hustle mentality

04:54 Benefits of stepping away

05:29 Build your healthy circle

Is “confidence” a part of what you deliver to your clients through your offers? For example: the confidence to appear on camera, the confidence to lose weight, or the confidence to take the steps to grow and scale their businesses.

You may believe that confidence is a key part of your offers — that the boost in confidence is what your customers are looking for and paying for. You may believe that this should play a major role in your messaging and marketing. This is something that I believed for a long time, too.

But here’s the truth: confidence alone does NOT sell.

Being “confident” in something sounds wonderful, but it’s a very vague statement. Instead of talking about how confident someone will feel after working with you, you should instead be thinking about what they’ll be able to DO with that confidence!

Want to dig a little deeper? All you have to do is press play!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • My own journey of discovery regarding the importance of confidence when it comes to crafting my messaging
  • How to articulate the true value of your offers beyond the confidence your clients will achieve
  • Why you need to dig deeper into what your customers TRULY want from your services

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:47 Giving people confidence

01:29 ‌Confidence does not sell

02:34 Going BEYOND confidence

03:27 What REALLY sells your offers

“We really need to be in that receiving mode in order for us to hear... we need to be in that open mode.”

— Julie Greenham

Is content creation a constant source of stress for you? Do you find yourself worrying that you sound like a broken record — or that your audience may be getting tired of hearing from you?

Many of us definitely feel the pressure to create fresh, new content for our audiences each and every week. If we’ve already spoken about a topic, we feel that we need to toss it into the “been there, done that” pile and never speak of it again!

But the truth is that while WE may feel this way... our audiences do NOT.

Revisiting topics can actually be very beneficial, in fact! Repetition is a key factor in teaching and learning — often, we don’t FULLY understand or remember things until we’ve heard them multiple times. This kind of repetition can help us get a deeper grasp of a topic and even begin to see it through a different perspective.

Press play on this episode to learn more about the value of repetition... and how to keep older information forever fresh and interesting!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why an audience member’s current state of mind matters when it comes to being able to truly receive your message
  • A real-life, personal example of why someone may not be able to receive a message — and how that can change
  • How to take past information and make it new and compelling!

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:47 Revisiting topics v. fresh content

01:49 Benefits of repetition

02:11 Receiving mode

04:38 Openness & repetition

05:54 Business language

06:55 ‌Recycling topics

“What is your communication style? You have to meet yourself where you are at.”

— Julie Greenham

What can you do, as a Quiet Powerhouse, to get more visible and grow your connection with your audience?

First of all, you need to grow your connection with YOURSELF.

It takes a lot of inner work to become more comfortable putting yourself out there as the face of your brand, especially when you’re trying to gain more exposure and raise your profile. Being in tune with your own style of communication is absolutely essential, but it’s not the only thing you need to work on!

Press play now to learn my 3 easy steps to help introverted entrepreneurs boost their visibility more comfortably — without doing anything that feels unaligned!

(Full disclosure: these are the steps that I took to get comfortable with my own recent appearance on Global News!)

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • The inner work that you should be undertaking in order to become more comfortable taking centre stage in your business
  • Why it’s crucial to recognize your own personal communication style (and how to use it effectively)
  • The role that self-forgiveness plays in developing your professional visibility plan

Highlights:‌

“All of your luggage, all of your bags that you have in your personal life, you bring into your corporate or your business life.”

— Julie Greenham

Is your personal baggage holding your business back?

As much as we may like to think that we have a professional version of ourselves AND a personal version, our personal lives and our businesses are interconnected. Many aspects of our personal lives can affect the choices we make in our businesses — including our values and unconscious beliefs.

Sometimes, this is helpful. But sometimes, we need to take a step back and evaluate.

Evaluate whether we are feeling aligned in our business in terms of our values.

Evaluate whether a fear of rejection is holding us back from great opportunities.

Evaluate how often we’re making choices based on OUR strengths, rather than the strengths of others.

In order to heal potentially harmful influences, you first need to recognize them. In this episode, I give you the tools that you need to get started!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • 3 areas you need to examine in order to discover how your personal baggage is influencing the way you run your business
  • A real-life example of how my personal fear of rejection affected the creation of my professional community
  • Two valuable resources to help you learn more!

“In our business journey and in our personal lives as well, we have highs and lows... The key to dealing with those lows is to plan ahead.”

— Julie Greenham

How do you reenergize and replenish once you’ve worked to the point of losing motivation and drive? How do you come out of a dry spell engaged and ready to serve your clients?

These are questions that have come up recently in The Quiet Powerhouse Membership, and I know that many introverted entrepreneurs deal with them regularly.

When we’re faced with large To-Do lists, challenging obstacles, or even a run of grey, gloomy days, it can be easy to feel uninspired, unmotivated, or overwhelmed. Unfortunately, the longer it takes to get back on track, the more our To-Do lists can pile up... making everything feel even more daunting!

In this episode, I share 3 simple ways to regain your motivation so that you can continue to grow your business, with real-life examples of entrepreneurs overcoming their motivation challenges.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • What “motivation toxicity” is — and how it can actually hurt entrepreneurs
  • How to trigger a positive energy shift, rather than trying to push through a dry spell
  • How to create a dynamic plan to help you prepare for low periods and respond more effectively

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:46 Intro

01:30 Toxic positivity & motivation toxicity

02:38 Acceptance & lowering expectations

03:35 Don’t try to push through

04:27 Create a demotivation preparation plan

“The truth is that our focus and clarity is so much better when we’re working on ONE thing. We’re able to come so much faster to the completion line when we’re working on one thing.”

— Julie Greenham

Do you spend more time in your business on administrative tasks than on bringing your vision to life and creating impact for your clients?

This is the second in a series of episodes on productivity. Last week (episode #95), I talked about 3 techniques that you can implement right now to boost your productivity sustainably, without exhaustion or overwhelm — if you haven’t heard that episode, I recommend that you go back and listen!

This week, I share two more sustainable, healthy productivity-elevating techniques that will make a MAJOR difference in the way that you run your business!

Integrating automation into your business is one of the best ways to ensure that the time you spend working in AND on your business delivers the highest amount of value. If you’re spending your time rewriting emails that should be templates, or manually posting to social media when you could be using a scheduler, then those tasks are taking your energy away from the activities that truly move the needle in your business!

I promise you this: your skills and time are far too valuable to devote to repetitive administrative tasks.

Press play to learn how to let go of the activities that are holding you back from taking your business to the next level — and why investing in technology is a long-term money-saver.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • How and where to effectively build automation into your business (even if you’re not the most tech-minded person)
  • Simple ways to cut down on repetitive tasks, from creating email templates to setting up pricing menus
  • Why you shouldn’t work on too many offers at once in your business

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:01 Intro

01:17 Streamlining your email

02:02 Automating rates, scheduling & payments

“It’s ingrained in us to believe in the hustle mentality, like doing more is productive — when actually, it is quite the opposite.”

— Julie Greenham

What are the top 3 high-performance habits that you can implement *right now* in order to increase your everyday productivity?

They may not be what you think!

As entrepreneurs, especially entrepreneurs with online businesses, we’ve been fed a lot of messaging that seems to celebrate and encourage productivity — but can actually HARM our productivity in the long run! The ‘hustle culture’ movement may appear to be productivity-focused, but it can actually lead to the #1 productivity-killer: burnout.

Our minds and bodies need to take breaks in order to continue working at our highest and most creative levels. And when we don’t honour that need for rest, we put ourselves on a path to exhaustion and overwhelm.

Sustainable productivity-boosting techniques help you achieve more while staying healthy and balanced, conserving your energy, and working toward the right goals!

Are you ready to do more WITHOUT feeling overwhelmed? Then press play — it all starts right now.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • The productivity-saving white space that should be included in your schedule every single week
  • How to develop clear, aligned goals that will take your business where it needs to be (and a gameplan that will keep you focused on the right things)!
  • How to use the Parking Lot Method to organize your thoughts, plans, and strategies — and why it’s so effective

Highlights:‌ ‌

00:01 Intro

01:02 Create white space in your schedule ‌

01:59 Conserve your energy

03:52 Have clear goals

Do you have trouble with the idea of selling your offers — even when you know for a fact that your product or service is a perfect fit for someone?

For many business owners, the idea of “selling” can feel pushy, aggressive... or even sleazy. As introverted entrepreneurs, and especially introverted service-based entrepreneurs, we often have even more trouble feeling comfortable with selling our offers, as it can be challenging to put ourselves in the spotlight.

The goods news: effective selling doesn’t require us to talk about ourselves very much at all!

So, how do you make people realize that what they need the most right now is exactly what you have to offer?

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • The one letter that you want to avoid overusing in your messaging and copy
  • The #1 tip for delivering an effective presentation that grabs audience attention
  • A real-life example of ineffective selling — and what to do instead!
