Best of Month | Krisha Young

Krisha’s one piece of advice when starting your own business is to strictly focus on the blog and the Facebook page.

Krisha Young is a food and lifestyle ninja who has been in business for herself over the past three years. When Krisha first started her online business, she was working a full-time job and raising two small children.

Wow! To say that this lady has drive is an understatement.

There are so many points here that I want to mention, but one of the things we touched on was shifting from a mindset of scarcity to one of abundance. This can be hard when you’re bootstrapping your business and trying your best to stay afloat, but once you’re able to take care of your core necessities, you can actually expand your growth and reach even more people.

Maven Moment

Not many of my guests have talked about the selling aspect of the business. I know I have mentioned before that selling can sometimes seem ‘dirty’ because we, as healers, want to help others and not crave a big financial hole out of our clients’ pockets; but Krisha knows her stuff and knows how to sell in the most authentic way possible. When you’re able to take care of yourself on a spiritual, mental, and physical level, this allows you to help even more people!

Best of Month | Lisa Carpenter

You have to do the inner work, especially if you own a business and want to be a pleasant boss.

I have a fantastic guest for today’s Making The Maven Podcast. Her name is Lisa Carpenter and she is a nutritionist, coach, and helps women practice healthy eating and lifestyle habits. Lisa’s work and message is clear, helping women develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies.

In today’s show we talk about Lisa’s journey and how she ‘did it all wrong’ when she brought her business online. She really goes there and speaks on how she was having a hard time coming to terms with some of her flaws and why she decided to do the inner work, to not only help herself grow but to help her business grow as well. You have to listen in for more!

Key Insights & Aha Moments

*I have some surprises for you!

*Lisa is a nutritional ninja and she helps women make peace with food and their bodies.

*Lisa used to compete in figure and physique competitions.

*Two years ago Lisa moved her business online, but she had to make a hard choice to let go of her then-clients.

*When Lisa moved her business online, it was literally like starting a brand new business.

*Lisa had a lot of resistance from within herself when she started her online business.

*Four years ago Lisa found out her husband was an addict and that experience took her through a personal transformation.

*Putting your head down and fighting through will only get you so far, but personal development can help you break through that brick wall.

*We experience change when we’re faced with things we don’t want to hear or don’t want to look at.

*If you want to get to know yourself, start a business.

*If your why isn’t strong, you won’t be inspired to get up and work on your business every single day.

*Lisa had to grieve when her dream didn’t come through last year, when she didn’t hit certain goals.

*But you know what? She got back up and did it again and she started small to regain her confidence.

*When Lisa’s business was ‘on the ground’ it just felt so easy to her.

*There comes a point in time where we have to stop creating and we have to start taking action instead.

*Final piece of advice for those just getting started? You really, really have to love what you do.

*We tend to overestimate what we can do in a year and underestimate what we can do in three years.

*I love getting feedback on my podcast! Keep it up you guys and thank you!

Maven Moment

It was really transformational listening to Lisa’s story. She digs deep today. Lisa mentions something so important that I don’t want any of you to overlook and that’s doing the inner work. Lisa talks on how personal development helped her break through and helped her achieve new highs and new levels in her business. I couldn’t agree more. Inner work is so critical when starting a business because you really learn a lot about yourself and sometimes it’s not pretty. But as Lisa mentions, change happens when you’re faced with things you’re uncomfortable with.
