The Guava Girl Podcast #54: YOU DON'T NEED AN INVITATION - STOP SETTLING AND START TAKING ACTION WITH KAYLA YBANEZ

Uncategorized Oct 28, 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 FROM INSIDE YOU DON'T NEED AN INVITATION - STOP SETTLING & START TAKING ACTION WITH KAYLA YBANEZ:

  • [5:53] Kayla recounts her story and how she got started in the online space through network marketing.  She recalls getting a 9-5 when the income just wasn’t enough to cover the bills, but she was forced to find something else that worked for her and her family when her daughter got extremely sick.
  • [10:34] Kayla talks about the moment when everything changed for her and her family.  After signing up with a life coach, who was a long time friend, she decided to use all the knowledge she had gained about leveraging social media to create the Hey Girl empire.
  • [11:45] The number one thing that contributed to Kayla’s success is that she wouldn’t settle.  Instead of focusing on the things that she couldn’t control surrounding her, she focused on what she could control.  That is where she found her power.
  • [15:30] Kayla discusses some of the obstacles she had to overcome when she started her business.  For example, the fact that she didn’t even have a laptop when she started her business.
  • [16:45] Kayla and I reflect on investing in yourself, taking that next step in your entrepreneurial journey, and how that sets you up to become light years ahead of others that seem to be just waiting to take action to make their dreams reality.

POWERFUL QUOTES FROM YOU DON'T NEED AN INVITATION - STOP SETTLING & START TAKING ACTION WITH KAYLA YBANEZ:

“During this journey [while our daughter was in the hospital], I was basically grasping at straws, trying to go into work in my office, which was almost an hour from the hospital whenever I could because my family needed the money.”

“And the next thing you know, I'm not going back into network marketing and I'm actually taking all of the skills I have learned about Instagram. And I just started teaching people like this is what I learned and I'm going to teach it, too. And that's where it started. I never knew or even imagined it would turn into a full time thing, honestly. I figured if anything, maybe we can pay our electric bill or get some groceries and then a quarter million dollars later.”

“ … because that's really one of the big things I think I did was with everything that was happening to our family and around us that we had zero control over and we couldn't change what that outcome would be. There were also so many things that I could control. And that's what I took hold of and took that power back.”

“I think when I hear women who are dying to to work for themselves and they're just kind of waiting for that permission, it's really crazy when they realize that you don't need permission to do whatever it is that you're after.”
