Revenue Accelerator with Audrey Holst

Season 2021, Ep. 826

Many of you don't recognize that perfectionism is part of your Achilles heel, or if not, the entirety of what it is that's preventing you from achieving more success. In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, our guest is Audrey Holst. Audrey helps people recognize what perfectionism is, what it looks like, and the things associated with it—thoughts, feelings, fears, and behavior. So people can start to understand and track these behaviors in themselves. Stay tuned to learn more!

Perfectionism

[1:03]

Perfectionism is a survival mechanism that we've started with and just continued with because it seemed to work for us. But at a certain point, it becomes a hindrance and not a help. 

Imposter Syndrome

[7:34]

Imposter syndrome and people-pleasing are hugely related to perfectionism. It also depends on people's unique archetypes. There are different ways that people relate to their perfectionism and different ways that they show up. 

Perfectionism Archetypes

[9:06]

The five archetypes are the:

  1. Brake and gas perfectionist. The person who feels like they've got their foot on the gas and brake simultaneously. They're going nowhere, but it feels like they’re racing fast. 
  2. Optics Perfectionist. People who patronizes aesthetics. Everything looks wonderful on the outside, but the inside is on fire.
  3. Hero perfectionist. The person who is always jumping in and saving everybody else and over-functioning but is not handling their own stuff. 
  4. Covert perfectionist. People who are close to you may not even realize that you're a perfectionist, which you struggle with. 
  5. Rigid perfectionist. They often show up in business, especially in certain leaders who use control and power to influence nicely.

Red flags that could be costing you money in your business

[15:37]

Avoiding conversations that need to be had—avoiding telling the truth to yourself and others. Spending way too much time on stupid tasks that don't need your time. Not taking risks. If you're constantly putting the blame to others, it might be because you don't want to take responsibility yourself. Not only you are not managing yourself, you also don’t manage your time and energy well. Finally, things associated with avoidance type behaviors, procrastination type behaviors, or defensiveness are some of the red flags.

How perfectionism play into other areas of your life

[20:32]

Success in your business may look a certain way. But what does success in your relationships look like? What does success in your overall life look like? What is success in your downtime? It's important to make those decisions to see how those decisions impact you as a human being, your mental health, physical health, and relational health, and get clear about that.

Revenue Accelerator with Pearl Cox

Season 2021, Ep. 617
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Pearl Cox. She is a communications consultant, speaker, and coach who offer specialists across different fields by leveraging digital communication, speaking, coaching, and mentoring to support them in their current roles. She specifically supports director-level women in the corporate grind and shows them how to build a business using their transferable skills and adopt the attraction law. Today, she talks with us about how visibility and leveraging your current skill sets can multiply your current business without any extravagant and complicated strategies.A Speaker for Women[3:21]Someone reached out to Pearl asking for women speakers that excelled in a male-dominated area. This started her journey to speaking. The first time she spoke was at a school in the UK where she shared her story with girls. She hoped to give them pearls of wisdom and insights as to how they could grow.Law of Attraction in Communication[9:34]In the law of attraction, you want to manifest what you want. You have your idea, set your goals, and want to go where you want. That's affirmations and the law of attraction. If you look at it that way you do it without realizing it, you will understand the process behind it and do it without realizing it. With communication, you can then share with others and use your understanding to share your message with everyone.Less Expectations[15:44]There are these hidden doors that people kind of go through. But it is not something that you're allowed to talk about in the corporate space. You can't just be like sending an email and expect to have a positive outcome. You can't always lean in energetically positive expectations because people will roll their eyes at you. But you also must work with people in terms of standing in that faith and not dismissing their power.Project Management Skills[17:59]Any parent that juggles with a budget gets children ready for school. This is like project management. It's understanding that and seeing how you can put that in. Project management is an essential skill in the workplace and you can learn so many things from that.Pearls of Wisdom[26:12]Always believe in yourself. Go for the biggest dream possible. You're going to make it. Don't let anyone knock you down because you can achieve absolutely anything.Learn more about Pearl Cox:LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/pearlcox/?originalSubdomain=ukPodcast: https://bit.ly/2SExMgtTwitter: https://twitter.com/LaPeregrinaFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/239032727276853/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrUrb1ASIM3A8Hj02cTw4QA

Revenue Accelerator with Frank Demming

Season 2021, Ep. 617

Known as the "Local Business Guy," he is also the President and CEO of Local Business Marketing Solutions. The company specializes in helping local businesses increase their revenue by 25% within 12 months.

He helps businesses get noticed on the internet and create opportunities for them to grow their business. As a revenue growth specialist, he has a very in-depth process of getting to know his clients' audiences.Listen Carefully to the Experts[6:08]Don't just listen to the words of someone who's an expert in their field. But listen and look at the strategy that they're leveraging to communicate information.Know the Behavior of your Audience[13:15]It is very important to know what your audience reacts to or what their behavior is. If you continue to market in the way that you did before when environmental factors have changed, you're just wasting your time and effort.Modeling[16:34]Model what people are doing. Model what's being done to you. If you're a business owner and you're out, don't go and have the experience. Have the experience and ask yourself about what you learned from that experience. Figure out how you can model what you learned into your business, especially for marketing.Investing in People[19:10]If you're working with someone who knows what they're doing, there are learning curves in their strategy. Those strategies might be long-term or get-rich-quick strategies. But understand that it's really about working with someone who understands what they're doing. Be willing to make that investment because you get what you pay for.Understanding Brilliance[22:29]When you start getting to the point of realizing what your unique brilliance is, you start delegating the things that you know are not. Even if you enjoy doing something, it may not be the best thing to get your brilliance. What you want to do is outsource the stuff that you hate. Start making a list of the stuff you hate doing in your business and outsource that first. Then make a list of something that is going to scale and grow your business.Recession-Proofing your Business[41:44]In Frank's book,7 Steps to Recession-Proofing Your Business, he says that there's a way where you can win without doing SEO. You can create a list of people who are searching for your business and your service. It's called Intent Search Marketing.Learn more about Frank Demming:Frank’s book: https://www.amazon.com/Steps-Recession-Proofing-Your-Business-Long-Term/dp/1671718844Website: https://www.lbmsllc.com/

Revenue Accelerator with Mollie McGlocklin

Season 2021, Ep. 610
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we invited Mollie McGlocklin, the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, and the Sleep Is A Skill Podcast host. Sleep Is A Skill is an organization that improves people’s sleep by combining technology, responsibility, and behavioral change. After struggling with insomnia while traveling globally, she built what she couldn’t find; a location to master the skillset of sleep. Today, Mollie shares her insights on optimizing people’s sleep through a unique blend of technology accountability and behavioral change.Circadian Rhythm[03:12]The concept of circadian rhythm is every 24 hours, you’re operating on this cycle. It’s about the length of the shifting rotation of the Earth. As diurnal creatures, we’re meant to be active during the day and rest at night. Since humans have roamed the Earth, there has been a particular way of sleeping for a very long time. With the spectrum, you can either be on the weaker side of the spectrum or the stronger side, and it’s dynamic eb and flow at different points.Consistency in sleep when life is an inconsistent experience[06:47]Maintaining that key framework to have consistent cues or that circadian rhythm to entrain that rhythm will make certain things at odds.[08:23]Mollie aims to create as much of a consistent rhythm as possible. They have people create what they call “Crafted Circadian Day.” There are concerns around the health implications when challenged by this goal of strengthening your circadian rhythm. As parents, you might have to reframe for specific periods of your lives to have more fragmented sleep.Affecting the quality of sleep[13:13]The most important thing is light. When you first wake up, you’re looking to cultivate something known as sunlight anchoring. This is the first half of your day with a shot of bright light exposure for a decent slice of time. Ideally, you’re looking to be within the first two to three hours or so of getting outside and exposed to sunlight. The earlier you get that first shot of bright light, the earlier you’re going to get tired in the evening.Correct the damage[23:47]Sleep deprivation has been linked to neurodegenerative disorders, or Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s dementia. While sleeping, our brain is shrinking in size to facilitate this fluid to flush out the day's toxins. And then we’re clearing out the brain for proper functionality for the next day.Investing for Sleep[32:14]After years of mismanaging her sleep, Mollie went through a period of insomnia.[35:41]It helps with that focus, clarity, and thinking about all the time that you waste. You can save a lot of time during your day to spend it the way you want. It starts with taking care of yourself.Discover how Mollie McGlocklin runs through creating the best sleeping pattern and clients by visiting:https://www.sleepisaskill.com/Listen to Revenue Accelerator Podcast on:Apple | Acast
