Before we wrap up, I just want to nudge you to think a little bit more about what you’re focusing on, vs. what you should be focusing on. I know so many people are focusing on the wrong things! They spend way too much time invested in their logos and graphics, and not enough time actually getting out there and getting clients. Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to focus on that, but at the end of the day you don’t have a business if you’re not making money!

I want to share my ‘frying pan’ moment when I first dipped my toes in business. I spent a lot of my time on different Facebook groups and communities, in fact, I want to say I spent TOO much time in these areas. When I wasn’t seeing any return, and I kept thinking, ‘what’s the problem here?’ Then the frying pan hit me! Why am I even doing this?! Why am I not leading with my strengths, which was to host my own one-on-one parties! So I stopped! I no longer hang out in Facebook groups. These do not play to my strengths. So for you out there, stop trying to put squares pegs in circular holes!

Qualifications Aren’t Enough to be a Business Owner | Amanda Jane Daley | MTM091

Business and entrepreneurship is not for everyone and that’s okay.

Amanda Jane Daley is a business mentor for wellness professionals, and is based out of Sydney, Australia. During her corporate career, Amanda worked alongside companies like Coca Cola and eBay, but much like all of us, she suffered from burnout, and quit her job. When she started her company, she quickly realized qualifications alone do not make you a good business owner, and she ended up losing her sense of self. On this week’s episode, Amanda talks about her struggles during her entrepreneurial journey, and why it’s so important to balance both your feminine and masculine energy.

Key Insights & Aha Moments

*Who is Amanda? She’s a business mentor for health coaches and wellness entrepreneurs.

*When Amanda left her corporate career to pursue her business, she had a very dark time. She lost her identity.

*Guest posting and blogging online doesn’t bring in money! It really woke Amanda up. She really had no idea how to run a business.

*Business and entrepreneurship is not for everyone and that’s okay.

*How did Amanda avoid burnout when starting her business?

*One of the things Amanda helps her clients with is burn out! It’s all about flow and balance.

*Amanda is grateful she was able to meet some amazing mentors and fellow women entrepreneurs.

*Too much hustle is toxic. In fact, Amanda hates the word ‘hustle.’ Being overworked isn’t sexy!

*How is Australian’s business scene different than that of the U.S.?

*Be honest with yourself. Does this feel good for you? For your body? Mind? Spirit?

*Business is personal. When you have a more cooperative mindset, more doors open for you than having a competitive mindset.

*When Amanda got burned out in the beginning of her business, she was so, so anti-business.

*It’s really about bringing both your masculine and feminine energy to the table and keeping it balanced. Neither one is better or worse, they’re both necessary.

I wanted to just add a few more thoughts about the conversation Amanda and I had, before we wrap up today. As mentioned before, qualifications don’t necessarily make you a business owner. This is a common mistake for many people fresh out of school and wanting to start their own business. When you set expectations for your company, you need to take off your practitioner hat, and put on your CEO hat. You have to think like a business owner!

We Are Divine & We Are Whole | Caroline Frenette | MTM090

Take ego out of the equation, and find your inner CEO. You’re already born whole.


Caroline Frenette is a Certified Advanced Transformative Coach® (A.K.A. Supercoach) and is the founder of The Insight Mastermind. She is also the creator of the 12-week online program From Broke to Blissfully Booked. Caroline reached out to me initially, and I’m so glad she did! On today’s show, Caroline talks about the importance of taking your ego out of it, finding your inner CEO, and so much more!

Key Insights & Aha Moments


*Get out of that hamster wheel of information gathering! Get out there and do it!

*Who is Caroline? She was born an entrepreneur!

*Caroline’s clothing line made it on the cover of Elle magazine and more! But she was still struggling.

*Caroline was fed up! So, instead of giving up, she decided to pivot her fashion brand, and cater to yogi’s.

*Unfortunately, Caroline had to let go of her clothing business, and she told one of her coaches that she didn’t know if she would be able to stop crying.

*When we’re afraid to make a move, when we’re settling for less, sometimes you just have to jump into the unknown.

*All ‘that work’ that’s ahead is just you battling with your ego. The ego loves to make you worry! Take a step back, calm down, and then do.

*Change does not have to take time. Literally, you can wake up and be a renewed person. Don’t let ego stop you from living your true self, your inner CEO.

*How can practitioners get over their relationship with money?

I had the opportunity to speak with 6-7 individuals last week (not my clients), who were just getting started in their business, and here’s the picture I want to paint for you. These individuals told me the same story, over and over! Most of them had started their business at the beginning of this year, and none of them were able to get one client from it so far. And it doesn’t have to be that way! Listen to the end of the interview to hear some of my tips to get out of the rut!
