Radical Self Acceptance: A Chat with Emily Nolan
Cultivating Your Tribe: FRIENDS + FAMILY
Emily Nolan is a mother, a wellness guru, a model, a business woman, a yogi, and more. We sat down to talk about choosing #radicalselfacceptance through life’s most chaotic transitions (including opening a business, becoming a parent, launching new projects, the list goes on…).
We had some technical difficulties on Instagram live, but I’ve tried to edit those out as much as possible (ignore my terrible video editing skills!).
The 5 Key Attributes of My Ideal Client
Entrepreneurship can be a lonely road-- especially at first. It could take years to make your first hire, and even then, depending on that hire, their role, and your relationship, that person might not be someone that you choose to confide in, or seek counsel from. That’s why you have to build your tribe.
I’ve found that no tribe is complete without friends and family, peers, a general network of like-minded individuals, and mentors/mentees. These buckets of people tend to overlap, cross-over, and sometimes the same people can fill multiple or even all roles. In this four-part series, we’ll explore how to fill each of these roles, how to balance your sphere of influence and how to make sure your tribe is suited to your needs.
9 Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Business (or any) Coach
I know it's not nice to play favorites, but sometimes these things happen. I get asked questions all the time about what kinds of clients I serve, and I'm always very excited to answer that their skills, their businesses, their personalities are all over the map. That kind of variance excites me and fuels my entrepreneurial spirit.
So you've decided to hire a coach to help you level-up your business or career. Congrats! Taking that first step into self-investment can be tough, and finding the perfect person to help you grow may seem daunting. You wouldn't invest your time and money dating someone or attending therapy with someone who wasn't a good fit, so why would you settle for a business coach that wasn't well-suited to your needs?
What is a Growth Mindset?
You may have heard that all it takes to live the life of your dreams is to imagine it and will it into existence. For those of you who are skeptical, here are a few selections that focus how and why mindset is so important in setting goals and inevitably achieving them and changing your life and business. Personally-- I'm a big believer. I know that when I choose to believe positively about my opportunities and abilities, the self-diminishing talk decreases.
There's a buzz in the business world about building teams that emanate a growth mindset, but what is it really?
One cannot choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again. Fear myst be overcome again and again. -Abraham Maslow
A growth mindset means just that-- choosing to evolve, to be better, to challenge yourself and those around you, to pick yourself back up after failures big and small...over and over and over again.
