Uncategorized Dec 09, 2019

The Guava Girl Podcast was created with the purpose of empowering women to think entrepreneurially and creatively so they may lead the extraordinary life they never thought possible.

Here you will find the good, the bad, and most importantly, the REAL inside looks of what it is like to work for yourself and feel empowered by doing it. We talk about growing your following on social media, building a personal brand, and what it is like being a woman in a startup culture.

IMPORTANT MOMENTS IN EPISODE 60. OVERCOMING YOUR BIGGEST BLOCKS IN YOUR BUSINESS:

  • [3:29]  The first thing I discuss, is addressing that people expect you to provide your services for free.  And the best solution for this is to really establish your boundaries with your audience, and clearly stating that there is paid content and then there is free content.
  • [5:10]  Establishing expectations with clients is super important, and there is one question you need to be asking: what are your expectations of me as your coach or designer or contractor, etc.?  And you may need to re-establish this, but if expectations and intentions are established there is not a lot of room for uncertainty.
  • [7:29]  One thing that comes up for a lot of people is clients and customers requesting discounts.  I don’t think this is necessarily something to be annoyed about, just be sure to shut it down.
  • [11:46]  Working with clients who don’t show up and do the work, and also clients that can be very clingy.  For the clients who don’t show up, we can always try to guide them to be more coachable. For the clients who need extra support, as their coach, coach them to start to coach themselves.
  • [15:24]  Keep in mind OBMs and VAs aren’t here to be your business coach.  Their job is to execute the tasks you need them to do. They need direction from you to do their job to the best of their ability.
  • [18:48]  Your homework for this week, is to find some time to make a list of boundaries for your business.  How will clients communicate with you? How will you collaborate with people? How will you help friends or family?  How will you pay yourself and your team? Get clear on your boundaries and be mindful of them.

 

POWERFUL QUOTES:

 

“If your friend works for insurance, like you don't go in and expecting free insurance. It's just one of those things where you have to again establish that this is your livelihood.”

“When someone ghosts you after giving you a verbal confirmation … 99.7% of the time it is because of fear. … most people just feel so unworthy of a change and they feel incapable.”

“If someone oversteps your boundaries, it's because you allowed it to happen.  Right. It's not that you're not allowed to get annoyed, but you chose to be exactly in the situation that you are currently.”
