#46 How to Follow Up After a Networking Event

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

You’ve attended a networking event. Now what? You have a purse full of business cards and no clue what to do with them. Business cards have no value if you don’t use them, so let’s learn from a 22-year-old millennial wiz kid who schooled this mama on how to maximize the initial interaction we had on the first meet up.

And since the ball starts rolling as soon as you meet, it’s best to start at step 1 within 24 hours. Check out how a 22-year-old taught me a thing or two about the art of the follow-up.

#44 How to Define Your Own Success

#44 How to Define Your Own Success

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

Caroline Greene is a recovering lawyer, chronic overachiever and passionate truth-teller who loves helping women build whole lives that truly matter to them.

Before she became a life and business coach, she was a stay-at-home mom of my two beautiful girls. And before that, she was a big-law litigator and former prosecutor. Needless to say, as a graduate of Yale University and the University of Virginia School of Law, she meant it when she said,” I know what it feels like to get stuck into someone else’s definition of success.”

Most of her life was spent doing the next “right” thing. But then she hit a point when “right” wasn’t enough anymore. Caroline wanted more. Not more money or more fame or more prestige. But that intangible more. More joy. More laughter. More connection. More meaning. And She’s been working on building a life that truly matters to her ever since. Today’s show we will learn how to keep going, keep learning and keep facing our fears with humility, compassion, and curiosity. On this podcast, we are going to redefine success in the way that’s right for us.

Here’s what we talked about:

  1. Having a “Top Card” priority and serving it well
  2. Disconnecting from external sources of success and reaching from within
  3. Sell first, then build
  4. Outsourcing at home

#42 Work S.M.A.R.T.E.R. not Harder

#42 Work S.M.A.R.T.E.R. not Harder

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

What Does S.M.A.R.T.E.R. really mean?

SMARTER is an acronym that you can use to guide your goal setting. To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:

  • Specific
  • Meaningful
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time bound
  • Evaluated
  • Reviewed

Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of traveling around the world, but it’s never happened. Maybe you tell yourself it’s because you don’t have the time or the money, and you’ll think about it next year.

Try setting SMARTER goals to help make your travel plans specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound. You might find that the real reason you haven’t traveled is because your plans have been too vague or unrealistic. Think about how you can adjust your vision and rephrase it as a SMARTER goal, so that you can make your dream come true. Listen to today’s show on how you can create clear, attainable and meaningful goals, and develop the motivation, action plan, and support needed to achieve them.

Here’s what we talked about:

1) Don’t set yourself up for failure
2) Be realistic
3) Evaluate every thing you do
4) Know your strengths and limitations

If you haven’t already, check out this podcast episode where we give you action advice on how to work SMARTER, not harder in 2017 to help you succeed at a rapid pace!

Those jogging overachievers who make 7 figure salaries & always seem to have a smile or their face? Well, let’s face it, they know the secret. They are members of the club. The Five Club. Yep, 5am baby.

Membership has its benefits. These folks know the feeling of arriving at work & having the whole peaceful place to themselves. They rarely encounter traffic. They watch the sun rise. They wake to birds chirping. And every day they give themselves the most important gift on earth. The gift of time.

Do you wanna be a member of the Five Club? Listen to this week’s podcast. It will change your life for the better!

I wish I knew this years ago…

The direct benefits I have received from getting up earlier:

I’m healthier from having the time to workout daily
My body is more in tune with the earth’s circadian rhythms which offers more restorative sleep
My business is even more successful than I could have hoped for
I am able to spend meaningful uninterrupted time with my children
I have gained even more self-esteem.
I’m way more energized & productive
I’m proof that the stats are true…Various studies show that morning peeps exhibit major success character traits like optimism, being agreeable, satisfaction and conscientiousness.
If you haven’t already, check out this podcast episode where we give you actionable tips and compassionate advice on how to wake up earlier and give yourself the gift of time.

#40 Casey’s Top 10 Books of 2016

#40 Casey’s Top 10 Books of 2016

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

Are you looking to improve yourself…all the time? I am. I listen to audible and all sorts of podcasts every minute I get. Today we talk about books…These books have been recommended a ton of times. The information they discuss, the ideas they throw out there, and the principles they cover are uber important to understand if you want to see your business grow and your time be your own.

Am I asking you to agree with them on every level?

Nope. But, they have helped many to great success. So take a listen and see if there is one or two that might fit you!
First the Honorable Mentions, then The Top 10!
The Magnolia Story By Chip and Joanna Gaines

Smart Money Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze

The Lean Start Up by Eric Ries

Here’s what we talked about:

Casey’s Top Ten books of 2016

#1 The Secrets to the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth Hardcover – February 15, 2005
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it!

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?

The shocking answer is: None of the above!

In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

#2 Think and grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This is Napoleon Hill’s definitive landmark book (revised and updated for the 21st century) on how to unleash your full potential and achieve guaranteed success in life and work, by following the principles outlined in this book. This book will also teach you how-to conquer many common fears, such as Poverty, Ill Health, Criticism, Loss of Love and Death. “Think and Grow Rich,” indispensable reading for personal achievement.

#3 Accounting for the Numberphobic: A Survival Guide for Small Business Owners by Dawn Fotopulos
Why do so many business owners dread looking at the numbers? They make excuses…They don’t have time…That’s what the accountant is for….But the simple truth is that no one else will ever be as invested in their company as they are–and they need to take control.
As a small-business owner, financial statements are your most important tools–and if you don’t know how to read them and understand their implications, you cannot possibly steer your business successfully. Accounting for the Numberphobic demystifies your company’s financial dashboard: the Net Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement, and Balance Sheet. The book explains in plain English how each measurement reflects the overall health of your business–and impacts your decisions.

#4 The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich Hardcover – December 15, 2009
The New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body shows readers how to live more and work less, now with more than 100 pages of new, cutting-edge content.

Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, The 4-Hour Workweek is the blueprint.

#5 The Compound effect by Darren Hardy
No gimmicks. No Hyperbole. No Magic Bullet. The Compound Effect is based on the principle that decisions shape your destiny. Little, everyday decisions will either take you to the life you desire or to disaster by default. Darren Hardy, publisher of Success Magazine, presents The Compound Effect, a distillation of the fundamental principles that have guided the most phenomenal achievements in business, relationships, and beyond. This easy-to-use, step-by-step operating system allows you to multiply your success, chart your progress, and achieve any desire. If you’re serious about living an extraordinary life, use the power of The Compound Effect to create the success you want.

#6 Big Magic By Elizabeth Gilbert
Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

#7 Authority By Nathan Barry Become an Expert, Build a Following, and Gain Financial Independence Hardcover – June 17, 2014
THE IDEA THAT AUTHORS CANNOT MAKE MONEY IS 100% FALSE.
And no, you do not have to be famous or have a huge online following
In less than one calendar year, Nathan Barry made over $250,000 by independently publishing three books he wrote himself.
Making money from book sales is wonderful but it is just the beginning. Getting a raise, landing a new job, and gaining new clients are all direct results of writing and publishing a book.

#8 Influence by Robert B Cialdini -The Psychology of Persuasion, Revised Edition
Influence, the classic book on persuasion, explains the psychology of why people say “yes”—and how to apply these understandings. Dr. Robert Cialdini is the seminal expert in the rapidly expanding field of influence and persuasion. His thirty-five years of rigorous, evidence-based research along with a three-year program of study on what moves people to change behavior has resulted in this highly acclaimed book.

You’ll learn the six universal principles, how to use them to become a skilled persuader—and how to defend yourself against them. Perfect for people in all walks of life, the principles of Influence will move you toward profound personal change and act as a driving force for your success.

If you are a woman mom——

#9 Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less Hardcover – April 15, 2014
Have you ever felt the urge to declutter your work life?

Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas?

If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist.

The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.

#10 Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead Hardcover – Deckle Edge, March 11, 2013-

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.

Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.

#39 Make My World a Healthier Place 

#39 Make My World a Healthier Place

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

Today I interview two really innovative women in the health industry, nutritionists Debbie Peterson and Wendy Bright-Fallon of NourishCoaches.com. This team does things differently: they see people as individuals and don’t believe in the one size fits all mentality or the mentality of one little quick pill will solve all your problems in a minute.

Real whole food is the foundation of their philosophy. Wendy and Debbie see food as medicine and nourishment and believe food should be delicious and enjoyable. And it’s NOT about deprivation, shame, or guilt. Their mission is to make the world a healthy place through their “Five Pillars of Health: Nutrition, Movement, Sleep, Stress Management and Community.” Plus they wrote this wonderful community cook book with amazing healthy and fun recipes called “Nourish: A Community Supported Cookbook.”

Here’s what we talked about:

 

1. Tips on the 5 pillars of health

2. The importance of whole foods and ingredients

3. Knowing your negative health patterns

4. How health affects your presence in the world

 

If you haven’t already done so, check out this podcast episode and improve your health with the Nourish Coaches.

#37 5 Ways to Make Finding a Husband a Business Venture

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

Recently the conversation has come up quite often about finding a husband. Friends, colleagues and single associates alike are talking about it. So this podcast was inspired by a few conversations I have had of late. This show is a bit different, because I am by no means an expert in the field of dating , love or relationships. This is a “suggestion” show of how to find your mate. This is how I did, and we are still going strong 12 years later. This is also a shout out to all my single women out there. You are strong, beautiful and worthy of only the best. Keep at it! Love you girls!

Here’s what we talked about:

  1.  Strategize every step of the way
  2. Research what you want and don’t want
  3. Always put your best self forward
  4. Tell everyone you know about your mission
  5. Slow down & measure the processes and results

If you haven’t already done so, check out this podcast episode and get yourself a mate (if you want one)!

#36 Mom Inventors Make it Big

#36 Mom Inventors Make it Big

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

As moms of young kids, we’re always looking for better solutions to common problems. A few summers back, 2 moms were swimming with their daughters and realized what a pain it was to remove a wet one-piece bathing suit during those diaper changes or “I’ve gotta go!” moments. It was even harder to get the wet bathing suit back on. They knew there must be an easier way, but after months of researching, they couldn’t find one. So they decided to create their own “better way.”

They set out to evolve the one-piece bathing suit into a suit that could open and close with ease. They worked tirelessly cutting up old bathing suits, sewing them back together, creating their own patterns, and ultimately perfecting our product.

In late 2014, FASTEN™ was created. As parents, we never settle for anything less than the best for our children. And when they couldn’t find the best, they created it. They are passionate about their swimwear, and hope you will be too.

Here’s what we talked about:

  1. Never giving up on your idea
  2. Never taking no for an answer
  3. Working with other mothers makes life easier
  4. When it’s time to get a lawyer

If you haven’t already done so, check out this podcast episode with the Fasten Moms, as they share their story of success!

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”  The Art of War by Sun Tzu

 

Today is an important subject because, if we understand it, we will know how to control its power, and use it to our advantage. We are going to talk about the enemy of everyone on this planet.

Could you imagine if the Wright brothers didn’t jump out of their comfort zone? Thank goodness they did. Listen to today’s episode and you will learn how to “slide” outside of your own comfort zone.

Here’s what we talked about:

  1. The science of your comfort zone.

  3. Your “Optimal Anxiety Zone,” (the learning zone) is where you should spend most of your time.
  4. How to turn your “Optimal Anxiety Zone” into a muscle.
  5. How to strategically challenge yourself to slip and slide outside your comfort zone.

7 Time Saving Tips for Video

Tip #1 – The Shorter the Better! The less you say, the more likely people are to remember. Video is an overview or a hook to get people to take the next step. Did you know that after After 7 seconds people been to fade. If you are doing a promo or commercial. Never over 60 seconds. I like 30 even better. The shorter the video is, the less time it takes to complete every other aspect of the whole entire process is. Writing, filming, editing, fewer graphics etc.

Tip #2 – Focus on 4 simple things:

  • The problem
  • The solution
  • How it works
  • A call to action

Tip #3 – Do a shot list to organize your shots/thoughts before you roll the camera.

Tip #4 – Your video doesn’t have to be a big production. Remember you are not competing with HBO. It’s engaging and personal and from the heart. Authenticity at it’s best. Just be you, in your clothes, in a comfortable setting. And just get your point across.

Tip #5 – Use equipment that you are comfortable with. An iPhone is fine! Use a soft light in your home. Make sure your sound is clear and go!

Tip #6 – Batch the process. If you have 3 videos to create, do it all at the same time. Or parts of the process at the same time. For example, write all the scripts in one sitting. Shoot all the videos in one morning. Keep it together and your workflow with be efficient.

Tip #7 Recap on the 50 tips! Find solutions in your business to free up time….or take something out of your schedule that isn’t as effective for scaling your business and insert video marketing.

Meet the talk of the podcasting world…Christy Haussler.

After spending 25 years managing customer relations for Fortune 500 companies, Christy decided to do the unthinkable…..walk away from the great paying corporate job with incredible benefits, and move to an island! After relocating from South Carolina to Key West, Christy spent the next year honing her podcasting skills with her own podcast about local business.

She accidentally stumbled into full-time entrepreneurship, when she couldn’t find the company she wanted to hire for her own podcast. She decided to create the solution for herself, and then her company, Team Podcast was born. Within a year, the company hit six figures in revenue and Christy now has 8 team members working with her to produce over 200 podcast episodes each month. She is crazy good. Please welcome to the show Christy Haussler of Team Podcast.

Here’s what we talked about:

1.Why you shouldn’t jump on the bandwagon and start your own Facebook group
2.How great customer service can revolutionize your business
3.How to self-promote without being self-promotional

 

If you haven’t already done so, check out this podcast episode with Christy Haussler, as she gives you compassionate advice and actionable tips on how to make your business grow!

#24 Put Yourself in front of the camera for your children’s sake

#24 Put Yourself in front of the camera for your children’s sake.

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

This show is dedicated, and was created for all the women out there who hide from the video camera when it comes to personal home videos. This show was originally going to be “5 Tips to Boost Your On-camera Confidence” for small business owners. I was going to share these tips with my female entrepreneurs to help them get in front of the camera.

We as business owners need to promote our brand in the oh so important video marketing game. You know it’s vital. But, as I began writing, my thoughts began to shift to video for personal use.

I thought about my grandmothers, and how I wish I could witness them on video just one time….I wish I could hear their voices and see their mannerisms. I would cherish that so much. If I only had them on video…

I also thought about others in my family who refuse to be in pictures. Then I thought to myself, they are…robbing others of their memory… So this episode I am going to plead with those of you out there who are always behind the camera & for the women that just won’t get in front of the camera.

I beg you to be in front of the camera for the benefit of your loved ones. It’s no longer about you. Put yourself on video for your children. Let’s listen to this one for our kid’s sake…

I talk about my dad, the family archivist. (Thanks Dad)

I mention how easy it is to make a family video like this. I shot it in one day, and edited before I fell asleep. It took about 15 minutes. I used Adobe Premiere Clips app.

 

I discussed the importance I high hair in the 80’s!

High hair 2

Why are personal videos so important:

They are unwitting tools capable of linking past and future.

They are a record of your families life. They boost self-esteem.

They keep the memories alive in your children mind of all the good times.

They also can get YOU through the bad times.

They are so much fun to make.

They are another creative outlet for your children.

So please get over yourself, and in front of the camera! It’s a little bit of tough love, but I think you will thank me for it for the rest of your life.

#22 If you could go back in time to the 18 year old you, knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your young self?

#22 If you could go back in time to the 18 year old you, knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your young self?

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

I have three Interns Carly, Kelsey, Jessica who are doing a wonderful job for me. When I first started out, I interned everywhere. The internships that served me the best were the ones that I received hands on experience. So, my interns have their hand in everything my company puts out from my YouTube page, to social media, to my blogs, newsletters etc. I always try to give them assignments that can help better themselves in business, or creation and or I try to inspire them in some way to be their best self. Thus, this intern experiment…I had my young women take this podcast to the streets of downtown Red Bank NJ and have them ask women passersby one question that I hope would be inspiring and helpful to them.

That question was: If you could go back in time to when you were 18, what is the best piece of advice that you would give yourself knowing what you know today?” Again, this was going to be just an exercise for them, but they provided value to you my listener, worked really hard and did such a good job that I wanted to air it. I also was so pleased with the interviews who so gracious to answer these questions thoughtfully… It was just such a good experience of all these women working together and trying to help each other out. Sisterhood at it’s finest hour. I think today we will all benefit from this little experiment in life. So please enjoy listening to the work of Carly, Jessica and Kelsey, kicking butt and taking names down on the streets of Red Bank, NJ….

They talked about:

1. Experiencing freedom first.

2. Not letting anyone stop you from living your dream

3. Respecting your parents

If you haven’t already, check out this podcast episode where we take the show to the streets of Red Bank, NJ and ask experienced women advice on how to live life to the fullest!

#21 Meathead Moves Victims of Domestic Violence

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

Rules are made to be broken, right? That’s what I think…but don’t tell my kids. Today I broke my rule of only having women on my show. Today’s guest is a man!

I’ve had my eye on Aaron Steed of Meathead Movers and his mission way before I started this podcast five months ago. Aaron started his business with his brother in high school and never looked back. This interview is about perseverance, loyalty, steadfast entrepreneurship and a guy with a big heart that not only cares deeply about his employees, but about people. What really attracted me to him and his company was his dedication to assist victims of domestic violence.

I’m honored to bring to you Aaron Steed, the owner of Meathead Movers, a moving company in California. When I got off the call with him, I said to myself, “Not only do I want to use his company, but I want to be his friend, like go to the beach and have a beer with him and his wife.” Listen in and you will see what I mean.

We talked about:

1. How to take care of your customers and employees before yourself.

2. How to make helping others part of your business strategy.

3. How to make something from nothing.

If you haven’t already, check out this podcast episode where we dissect Aaron’s success story and give you compassionate advice and actionable tips on how to never give up on your dreams & oh so much more!

#20 The Casting Call with Stephanie Reibel

#20 The Casting Call with Stephanie Reibel

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.

On today’s show, I brought on a former actor, now turned Hollywood casting director for reality TV shows that are plastered all over TV.  She grew up in Chicago and always wanted to work in the entertainment industry. She moved out to Los Angeles when she was 19 to pursue acting and then made a career of it. She landed roles on Two and a Half Men, 90210, and Monk, just to name a few. After pursuing that for a while, she started to take an interest in casting and started helping out friends on low budget jobs and working for free until she got her first paying casting job, as an associate for a development job at with a company called Relativity. From there she never stopped working.

When asking her to be on the show, I knew I was taking the risk of being too inside and was afraid that this podcast would gear more towards my TV/Film listeners. But I must tell you, the words from Stephanie about never giving up, believing in yourself and owning it, ring true for all of us. I was pleasantly surprised at how inspiring Stephanie was. She has a history of working her ass off to get what she wants, how she wants it – AND she is only skyrocketing higher and higher in her career. And did I mention that she is doing all this with a 2-year-old son, and another child on the way!

Please enjoy a very honest and inspiring interview with Casting Director Stephanie Reibel.

We talked about:

1) Never giving up on your dreams.
2) Don’t take your job too seriously.
3) How to get your child into acting.
4) How to get Your story on a reality TV show.

If you haven’t already, check out this podcast episode where we dissect Stephanie’s story to give you compassionate advice and actionable tips on how to never give up AND oh so much more!

#18 Musing & Meditation with Julie Zuzek

#18 Musing & Meditation with Julie Zuzek

Listen. Learn. Love thyself. Never fear your future again.
Welcome to the show! Today I have an interview for you that I am very excited about…because today we are going to dive deep into a subject I know absolutely nothing about…and that is meditation. Every uber successful person I know meditates, and says how wonderful it is, and how it helps them with their daily routines, their lives, their relationships etc. I am a huge believer that if you want to be successful, you should do what successful people do. That is why I have brought on the show today a female expert of whom I am a huge fan, Julie Zuzek, otherwise known as “The Corporate Yogi.” Julie helps entrepreneurs grow conscious businesses that are purpose-driven and profitable.
She teaches entrepreneurs how to use their spiritual intelligence to build evolved, meaningful businesses. She is all about being our authentic selves, being mindful, and being aware of how we impact others. I love her message. Today, Julie has agreed to come on my show and teach us all about mediation, and the benefits of this practice. So thanks again for taking time out of your busy schedule to learn something new with me. I love learning new things and I love this woman. I hope you will, too.
