Revenue Accelerator with Megan Hale

Season 2021, Ep. 216

In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Megan Hale,  a profit-first business strategist, money mentor, and former psychotherapist. She helps equity-driven entrepreneurs step into more feel-good money, start to step into their earning potential, and do epic and powerful things in the world. Today, Megan will share many different tools and strategies for making good money and how you can be more at ease in handling your money.


Feel-good money


[1:17]


You can start making feel-good money right now. Feel-good money is a lot of different things. It’s around making money in a way that feels good and aligned with your values. It’s also respectful of your energy and is not asking you to work to burnout mode or depletion. It’s also around having a relationship with money that feels supportive. More money doesn’t fix the way money feels. You have to do some money-specific work to shift how that feels when you get there while ensuring that you’re doing things with your money that feel good. It’s three different pieces; how you make it, how you experience it, and what you do with it.


2% Business


[2:49]


Profit First is an allocation system that helps you dial in your margins to ensure that you are running a sustainable business and a profitable one. An allocation system will give you specific custom percentages for how much of your revenue should be going towards your personal pay, setting aside for taxes, to running your business, or setting aside for profit.


[3:54]


A 2% shift usually felt really sustainable and gradual for people. That was the foundation for the 2% pledge, starting to help people step into giving in a feasible, sustainable way. 


Making more money and be at ease


[5:31]


Part of this comes down to having an allocation system where you know what healthy margins are for you and your business. That helps clarify exactly how much money you truly need to earn for your business to be sustainable. When you understand your real target revenue numbers, that can also create a lot more ease.


[6:18]


The other piece that goes into ease is how you’re designing your business to earn revenue. If you have way too many things going on energetically, you’ll feel scattered. That’s going to decrease your potency. You’re not going to feel fully potent, what you’re here to do, and the way that you’re able to execute things in your business. If you can dial in and simplify your business model, that will do so much for ease as well.  


[7:45]


The third component is understanding what money means to you, instead of making, wanting money, bad or wrong, greedy or selfish. Having a completely different relationship dynamic with money where you see it as such a powerful, loving force for good in the world can bring a lot more ease to your sales process.


Money issues that profitable people tend to encounter


[9:27]


Higher earners step into a new revenue level. It’s sometimes hard for them to trust that money is here to stay. They don’t feel safe enjoying that money. People often think that when they step into more money, it creates a sense of calm, ease, and mastering; they’re going to know what to do with it. They don’t ever have to worry about money.


[10:20]


No matter how much money you’re making, you’re always going to have to be making decisions with it. And that is a very personal responsibility. Stepping into more money doesn’t mean that it’s all of a sudden just going to be no money worries.


The red flags when you don’t have a good money relationship


[12:31]


Explore your unique attachment style with money. Your unique attachment style with money might be the same as it is with people. You’re going to be anxious with money, anxious with people. How do you typically respond to that if you go into a conflict with one of your best friends? Do you tend to ruminate over the conversation? You play it back over and over in your head, think about what you said or what they said and what you could have said differently, and you’re stressed out about it.


[15:14]


But what is here for you is thinking about what it would be like to create secure attachment with money where you feel grounded, safe, or have ways of coping with vulnerability. Because a lot of times when you’re feeling a certain way about money, sometimes it’s about money, but sometimes it’s not. You’re just projecting stuff onto money because it’s an easy scapegoat.


Recommendations to create the revenue momentum.


[16:09]


Understand what a foundational offer is in your business. A foundational offer should do a couple of key things. It should be your most valuable offer, not just price point wise but the transformation you are providing for people. On the financial piece, a foundational offer is also going to take you to a good goal. Your good goal is always going to cover what you need.


The differentiator between someone who’s getting by in their business and someone who’s multiplying their success year over year


[18:46]


A lot of it comes down to intentional business design. Many people in the money space talk so much about the healing aspects of money, which is 100% important if you want money to feel differently. But it’s not always a prerequisite to earning more money.  


[19:47]


It’s around getting clear on the business design that creates more sustainability and ease. How you structure your offers matters immensely with how you’re experiencing your business. Facilitating your work, how you’re pricing your offers has a big impact. It’s not just the inner work. It’s also the strategy, the structure, the systems that really help you step into more money.

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

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.

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
