Ep. 1: Welcome to The Gutsy Podcast

Being an entrepreneur can feel lonely and overwhelming sometimes. This is a safe place for you to tune in and hear stories of business owners just like you that say “Yes! You can!”


You don’t have to do things to please other people. Invest your time in the things that matter most to you.


Next time you’re working on a challenging project, try creating your ultimate work playlist.


You can be the same person from 9-5 as you are from 5-9 by knowing your personal brand scale.


Having just graduated in May, I’m not exaggerating when I say it was the scariest time of my life.


Every time we invest in events like Leadercast, our team levels up.


The best way to overcome a fear is to lean into it. Fall down. Mess up. Whatever you do, just do it.


Whatever it is, if it doesn’t align with your personal brand, it doesn’t have to be part of you or your part of it. A personal brand is no different than a company brand. It has to be consistent, remaining cohesive wherever you go.


Success isn’t something you simply fall into, success comes with patience, dedication, and consistency. Ultimately, however, we are directly responsible for what happens in our lives. There are ways which we can be proactive, starting with our changing perspective. Successful people go against the grain and often combat pessimism with optimism and instead of embracing excuses, embrace solutions. The trick is to take action.


The first time someone comes to your website sees your business card or interacts with you is an opportunity to share who you are, what you do and how it makes a difference. Are those materials positively representing you in a way that makes you feel strong and proud of your business? Do you shy away from sending people to your website? Are you avoiding getting the next run of your business cards printed because they’re outdated?


It takes much hard work to make a brand approachable and keep it alive. While it may seem beautiful, there’s much work that needs to happen in the background. To ensure you can see, hear, read and experience the same in every encounter, we have to check through Before Anyone Else, or in this case, Before Anything Else immune system nourishment.


Your progress timeframe may be different than the people you admire or follow. Everyone has had his or her own struggles or setbacks. They may just be a different part of the journey than you are. The progress you make, whether one step or a huge leap, is important and valuable to your success. One day you’ll crack open the figurative business photo album and say, wow, look at how far I’ve come!


Company culture is the direct influence on how smoothly the ship is sailing. Effects derived from poor company culture are often missed deadlines, negative employee body language, tension, lack of ambition and static routine. If a company is not happy, it will reflect in many aspects of the workplace, unfortunately, and most crucially the clients. Your company culture IS your brand.
