Making the Maven Episode 125: Are you fully committed to your practice?

It’s me, Michelle McGlade! While I was on vacation, some fears were coming up inside me that I simply could not ignore. What’s the next step for me and my business? I kind of have an idea, but at the same time, I’m not 100% sure. I believe fear has really been the root cause as to what’s been holding me back to get to the next level. Having fears is extremely normal and it happens at all business levels, so what can you do about it?

*So, what do you do about this?

The Secret to Success Is in the Recipe

Making the Maven Episode 122: Don’t go in blind, get a recipe for your wellness business.

 

On this week’s show, it’s just yours truly, Michelle McGlade! Hello! Over the years of running a business, there’s something that keeps coming up again and again — there’s a process to all of this. Like baking (something I love to do), you don’t just go in blind and throw in a bunch of ingredients together and hope it works. No way. You follow a recipe and the same should be true with your business. Today, I want to introduce to you and announce my Hustle & Flow Framework™. It’s a recipe for your wellness business. I’ve made a lot of mistakes over the years and there’s no reason why you should go in blind and re-create the same mistakes. This is why I’ve built a framework to help you get those dream clients the smart way!

Key Insights & Aha Moments

 

*I’ve been podcasting for the last 2.5 years! Wow. Time flies!

*I try not to re-record something. I believe the first time is the real time.

*The cat’s out of the bag. I, Michelle McGlade, want to announce the Hustle & Flow Framework™!

*After listening to this episode, go to my Facebook page for Michelle McGlade and please, please tell me what your favorite type of cookie is!

*I love, love Annmarie Gianni skin care products.

*I really enjoy to bake, but I don’t like to cook. Do you have a preference?

*I love following the recipes. It’s relaxing and you don’t have to do all the guesswork, which leads to my second point…

*When it comes to your business, you gotta follow a recipe!

*Don’t reinvent the wheel.

*The recipe for success is out there, the only catch is you gotta get out there and do it.

*In the Hustle & Flow Framework™, I give you the recipe and help take all that guesswork out!

*I learned the hard way through trial and error and there’s no reason why you gotta do the same mistakes too.

*You need to hustle to grow your business, there’s no shortcut to that, but you can’t consistently hustle without burning out, which is where flow comes in!

*After hundreds and hundreds of client interactions, I know what works and what doesn’t.

*Everybody wants to jump directly into the flow and completely skip the hustle part. Doesn’t work that way!

*I’m sorry if I sound like a Debbie Downer, but believe me, this is not hard. However, if you’re struggling, you might be following only one section of the recipe and that’s why things aren’t raising for you.

*I’m sick of seeing you fail. Don’t overcomplicate it. Just make sure you’re following the full recipe!

Here’s How to Market Yourself Ethically

Making the Maven Episode 121: Marketing can be icky and filled with misleading information but it doesn’t have to be! There is an ethical and authentic way to sell your services.

 

Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and was the longtime CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm that serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. Glenn is also the author of Never Binge Again, which has helped thousands of people reprogram themselves on their relationship with food. On the show, Glenn discusses how health practitioners can market themselves authentically and ethically and dives deep into the psychological reasons why we have food addictions.

Key Insights & Aha Moments

 

*Glenn is so passionate about his line of work that he self-funded a study with over 40,000 participants and today, he will be sharing his personal journey out of obesity.

*Both Glenn’s parents were psychologists! It really helped him become an introspective thinker and it inspired him to become a Ph.D., himself.

*Glenn has experienced some failures along the way, the worst one was when his business failed, he became $700K in debt and had lost $2 million in the business.

*What do practitioners need to be thinking about from a marketing perspective?

*You don’t have to lie to your client in order to be effective at marketing. In fact, that’s not even considered ethical marketing. There is a way for you to promote yourself truthfully and authentically.

*If you feel icky about marketing, then take a step back and ask yourself, what you believe about your product. Do you believe people out there are suffering and you have the solution? If yes, then market with pride. Go all out! Embrace it!

*How can local practitioners best market themselves ethically?

*What was Glenn’s journey from having their own practice to marketing consultant to writing the book Never Binge Again?

*Addiction targets the lizard brain, and our lizard brains are not prepared for food addiction.

*Is binge eating common among men?

*Practitioners can get certified in Glenn’s methodology to further help their clients who are struggling with weight and eating issues.

*Never Binge Again isn’t a diet plan, it’s a way to structure your brain so you can regain control and combat impulse!
