In this episode, I get to sit down with Josh Pitts, the Founder and CEO of SHRED Media, and host of The SHRED Show. Josh worked with one of the biggest mortgage companies in Utah for many years and started transitioning into helping loan officers and real estate agents build their brand and brand awareness a few years ago. In early 2019, he founded SHRED Media, focused on getting people to Show up, Hustle, and Repeat Every Day.

 

Josh shares what he finds critical in the marketplace in terms of using social media. He highlights the importance of building a brand (rather than focusing on branding), and reveals a secret — it’s not difficult, it just takes consistency. Josh’s strategy for building a brand is through AIR: (grab) Attention, (create) Impact, (stay) Relevant. We dive into why you need to stop procrastinating and just start, in order to grab attention, and the best way to make an impact by talking about things you’re passionate about and creating relationships. Josh also has tips for staying relevant and being consistent. Tune in to find out what Jennifer’s challenge to you is in this episode.

In this episode, I get to sit down with Colleen Biggs, Co-Founder of Lead Up for Women, a weekly VoiceAmerica radio show which focuses on helping and supporting women entrepreneurs and women in general. After being a part of corporate America for 17 years, Colleen realized that her true passion and calling were to help women act on their purpose and what’s in their hearts by providing actionable tips and strategies and, so, Lead Up for Women was born. Today, Colleen travels around the country putting up pop-up Lead Up for Women conferences and bringing local leaders and national speakers to share their stories so that women can regain their power and build their confidence to improve their business and themselves.

 

A lot of women are impacted by the lack of confidence to speak up and believe in themselves to step into pursuing and acting on their purpose. It sounds like a women's issue, but men need to take note as well — it really impacts everyone. Colleen and Jennifer discuss tactics and strategies that people can use to speak up and take the lead, as well as why it’s so important to realize that you do not need permission from anyone else to lead your life. They also dive into the difference between enabling and empowering others, and how this ties into managing vs. leading a team professionally. Tune in to find out more!

 In this episode, I get to sit down with Jackie Tapia, a lawyer turned “American Dream Maker”. After 19 years in the legal industry, she made the switch to focus on her new calling — helping clients create their own American Dream. Jackie reveals her personal struggles and awakening in her own legal practice that prompted the shift to the work she does today, as well as some tactics and resources she turned to during this transition period.

 

It’s impossible to wake up one morning and run a marathon. You need to take small steps to work toward that goal. It’s the same in business — celebrate small wins along the way to sustain yourself as you make gains towards achieving your goals. If you’re struggling with figuring out what will give you fulfillment, Jackie recommends finding a coach and doing the deep, tough work on your own personal growth and development and listening to your intuition about what fulfill you. Jackie also shares her secret formula: Certainty + Action = Fulfillment. Tune in to find out what this means, and for some actionable tips that you can put into practice in your life and business.

In this episode, I want to share with you my five key points to build and support a great team and/or community. A lot of times, when we are in overwhelm, we just try to solve the problem by hiring someone, but believe or not, your work as a leader does not end there. Once you decide to become a leader, it requires action and work on your part to keep building that rapport and providing your team with support and motivation.

 

Here are my 5 points to consider to best do that:
1. Laughter opens minds — a good mood enhances everyone’s ability to think and be flexible.
2. Always recruit optimists — they need to have the basic skills, but you can up-level them to being great performers.
3. A habit of winning — highlight small wins.
4. Feelings are contagious — whether it’s negative feelings or positive feelings, it’s going to influence others around them.
5. The love bite — create a place of good memories.

Remember, community is not stagnant. It requires action to keep cultivating and nurturing it into something positive that will contribute to your success. Tune in for some actionable tips on how to implement these five points into your team and business.

In this episode, I get to sit down with Allison Larsen, an international speaker, top-selling author of Soul Intuition, and Founder of The Speakers Coalition. Allison’s passion and special talent lie in connecting people, and one of the things she helps her clients do is to craft their message for their ideal client. How does she do this? The trick is to focus on the transformation, not just information.

 

We kick off the interview by getting right to the root of the problem — the things that people do wrong with their messaging (focusing on themselves and not on the client). 

To avoid this, Allison recommends having a problem question and solution question that will help you get to your client’s pain points. She also reveals her simple yet powerful formula for crafting your messaging. Remember, emotion creates motion. That’s why it’s so important to take the time to get to know what your ideal client wants and how they feel about it. When you are invested in their dream, and not just their checklist, they’re going to be more likely to pick you to work with. Tune in to find out more!

Jul 25, 2019

In this episode, I get to sit down with Brian Dixon, to talk about clarifying your messaging, something all of us could use a little help with. Brian is a podcaster, a conference speaker, and a business coach, and he is passionate about helping high-potential leaders and teams thrive in a world of overwhelming options.

 

For any potential client, they’re going to be asking you, “Why should I pick you to work with?” If your messaging isn’t clear and clients can’t immediately tell what sets you apart from the rest of your competition, you are going to lose business. Brian reveals why having a personal touch and leaning into your business is so important in building enduring relationships, and how consistency in creating content plays a part. He also shares his techniques for identifying your avatar/niche down to what resonates with you. If you need tips on how to get past the mental block of being professional — not personal — with your clients and prospects, as well as how best to create valuable content for your audience, tune in to this episode!

In this episode, I chat with Steven Logreira, from Vancouver, Canada. He has been doing technical work since he got out of high school, and has a degree in Computer Engineering, with a minor in Business Administration. With over 12 years of experience in sales and eight years of being involved in the technical aspects of internet marketing, Steven now helps clients create automated processes for their workflow and systems.

 

Business is not just about getting the leads. That’s marketing. Sales is what you do with the leads to get to the close, and the truth is, conversion of the leads and delivering the service or product you’ve promised, consistently, are the most important things. Steven explains why it is crucial for small business owners and entrepreneurs to have a clearly articulated sales process and workflow, and why it is that so many people fail to put systems together. He also shares more about some of the roadblocks people face when it comes to creating a workflow or systems, and what the priorities should be when putting together a workflow. Remember, systems are the only way to scale and ensure consistent customer experience! Tune in to find out more!

In this episode, I want to share with you three important aspects of growing your business — Book and Block, CUSTOM, and five ways to make more money.

 

Book and Block — If you’re booking time for something, whether it’s to go to an event, meet with a client, or create a presentation, block time after it to do follow up and implement!

 

CUSTOM — Customize your offering and find your niche by using this acronym to help you.

C — Create a compelling story about your “why.”

U — Understand your strengths.

S — Supplement your weaknesses.

T— Tailor your expectations.

O — Optimize your environment.

M — Market like heck.

 

50 to 500 Process & Procedure — There are five main ways to make more money in your business after customizing: get more leads, get more conversions, get more transactions, raise your prices, and get rid of bad expenses. Make a 1% increase (or decrease) in each aspect every week for a whole year (50 weeks), and see a 500% increase in your business.

 

At the end of the day, always be asking yourself this — Is what I’m about to do going to get me paid? Does it serve my purpose and my strengths?  Is it something I have to do or can I delegate it? And is it something that needs to be done at all?

Jul 4, 2019

In this episode, I get to sit down with Tamra Blankenship, a communication and relationship expert both in the business and personal realms. Tamra is passionate about helping people understand their patterns and how they show up in life, how that mirrors back at them, and the work that they have to do in learning how to support themselves and how to navigate their relationships. She reveals how her own personal experiences created the path for her to do the work that she does today, and why being vulnerable is not about surrendering but about showing up as the most authentic version of yourself.

 

When it comes to communication, Tamra explains the three main aspects to consider: 

  1. Neutral communication: It’s all about coming to the communication with inquiry and inviting the other person to the conversation.
  2. Feeling loss in a relationship: We all crave collaboration, but we don’t have clarity on how to be collaborative. Ask yourself, are you in a good place with D.O.G. (Duties, Obligations, and Guilt)?
  3. Once we learn to let go and surrender, the healing will begin. What’s the best way to move forward?

Tamra has some techniques you can put to use immediately in all of your communications, whether personal or business. Tune in to find out more about how you can come to communications being authentic-focused rather than agenda-focused.

In this episode, I want to share with you more about conversions. Conversions aren’t just about converting existing leads into clients; they’re also about converting your sources into being able to refer you. There are three main reasons why conversions don’t happen.

  1. Sales skills — How good are your sales skills?
  2. Service skills — Do you have the right amount of follow-up?
  3. Source skills — Have you chosen the right people to work with?

Look into these three areas to assess your conversion!

 

I’m also hosting a 3-Day Workshop in Northern Virginia from July 12–14, specifically for loan officers. We’ll be diving into how to get clarity on your personal brand and messaging, create an action-and-implementation-based business plan, and design a comprehensive marketing plan. There will be some exciting speakers, a chance to learn more about your personality and negotiating style to improve your conversion rates, and much more. Tune in to find out more details about the workshop!

Jun 13, 2019

In this episode, I want to share my thoughts on a YouTube video I saw about a commencement speech given by Admiral William H. McRaven. In his speech, he shared his ten lessons on how to make an impact on people. The thing is, you never know who you're going to impact, even with the smallest actions you take. That’s why it’s so important to keep these things in mind as we move from focusing on success to significance.

 

  1. Make your bed — the little things matter.
  2. Find people to paddle with you — you will need some help!
  3. Measure the size of heart, not the flippers — it’s about the mindset and how hard you work.
  4. Get over being a sugar cookie and keep moving forward — Get over being a victim and get moving.
  5. Don’t be afraid of circuses — Don’t worry about measuring up to others. Hard work makes you stronger.
  6. Sometimes you have to slide down obstacles head first — Take risks to make an impact.
  7. Don’t back down from the sharks — Stand your ground and make that impact.
  8. You must be your very best in the darkest moments — You have to remain calm and composed in the worst of times, so make sure you have the skill set that you have lives up to that.
  9. Start singing when you’re up to your neck in mud — Do something that creates hope for everyone.
  10. Don’t ever, ever ring the bell — Don’t quit.

Kelly Garcia Kilmer is a Real Estate Broker for Keller Williams Preferred Realty and a Coach for Hero Nation. With over 20 years of real estate experience, and even an investor herself, she helps Realtors®, lenders, and small business owners reach their goals and dreams through specialized coaching. Kelly puts herself out there, knocks on those doors, and builds connections with her clients so that they can realize their potential and succeed too.

 

When it comes to starting a business, there can be a lot of fear around that. Fear of letting people down, fear of not being capable, the fear of failing. I hope Kelly’s story inspires you to get out there and at least try. Kelly was a recently divorced and single mom when she began her journey. She dived head first and started taking in as many resources as she can, she found people that inspired her, and now she guides her clients on their journey by asking them smart questions that help them clarify their vision for success. She’s been there, too and she knows how tough it can get, but with support and guidance, you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps and reach your goals.

Today’s episode is going to be a show about threes. I’ll be sharing with you three things in three different categories. The first one starts with time management — or, as I like to call it, priority management — because we can’t always manage our time, but we can manage our priorities.  We actually have three choices every single week and, based on our choice, it will either leave you one step closer to your goal or one step further from your goal. By getting clear on your goals and priorities, you set the intention, every day, that you will succeed.

 

The second one is self-analysis and self-reflection. Whatever you had to do for that day, a client meeting, a networking event, write down three things that you did well, then you’re going to write down two things that you could have done better, and the last and final step, write down one action step that you can improve upon. The third and last action tip today is sales-related. On the physical side, we might not notice us leaning in and getting excited when at a meeting, this energy is great initially, but it can often become too intense to the person taking in that energy. Find out how you can smooth this out and the best way to close the sale in today’s episode!

In this episode, I get to sit down with Heather Wiskes, CEO and Elite Coach with Strategic Money Solutions. Heather comes from a computer programming and accounting background, but she eventually realized how little people actually understand how money flows and how interest works. She decided to find a way to really help people make a powerful impact on their financial future and so Strategic Money Solutions was born.

 

Almost everybody these days has some form of debt. The key to dealing with it, as Heather shares, is to first change your mindset about it. Instead of approaching it with fear and losing sleep over it, own your debt and find a way to navigate it with empowerment. Heather explains how her algorithm helps people make payments on their debt in a way that maximizes impact and takes the stress out of navigating debt. She also reveals her strategies for dealing with credit card debt, as well as some real-life examples of clients she has helped. Tune in to find out more about how you too, can own your debt.

May 9, 2019

In this episode, I want to talk about something that stops us from chasing opportunities when they present themselves — assumptions! Many of us as salespeople have the reluctance to approach the top producers in our fields because we wonder how we are going to compete with the person that they’re already working with that they really love. That’s an assumption and we need to overcome that to make the most of the opportunities we get.

 

I share some verbiage that you can use to approach this topic and how to overcome this limiting belief, as well as concrete examples of phrases you can use to start and frame the conversation. The trick is to focus on the fact that you’re not there to replace their existing relationships but to expand and help them grow their business. I have some easy strategies and tips about simple yet effective things you can do to start this conversation, as well as some of the things you should definitely avoid doing. Tune in to find out more about how you can set yourself apart from the competition.

May 2, 2019

In this episode, I get to sit down with Lorrie Richins, a personal and family empowerment coach, and the business owner of Whole Family Mentoring. She focuses on helping individuals and families heal and feel whole again. Growing up, she experienced a lot of trauma in a fractured home, but today, she is a mother of seven, married for 34 years, and working to provide other families the tools she has acquired to improve their family lives.

 

In her experience helping people feel whole again and empowering fractured families, Lorrie has observed that most families face three main problems:

1) Ineffective communication: Lorrie shares some of the unhealthy ways people deal with problems, and how and why people struggle to express themselves.

2) Lack of proper problem-solving skills: From the perspective of a parent, Lorrie reveals how to groom children to have those developmental capacities.

3) Unresolved past trauma: Lorrie explains the trauma timeline technique, as well as some of her tools for opening the dialogue about childhood traumas.

 

Lorrie and Jen also discuss the four possible outcomes when a person decides to step into their own power in the relationship instead of allowing the other party to control them, as well as the SOS signs that your family relationship may be in need of professional help. Tune in to also find out how all of this translates and applies not just to family relationships but in your business as well.

In this episode, I want to share with you how you can use your business plan to evaluate your plans, objectives, and goals for the year. We are approaching the end of the first quarter of the year, and this is an excellent time to be taking stock of where you are on your path in your business for the year. Are you on the right track to hit your goals, or are you veering off in the wrong direction?

 

I reveal my three-part strategy: Tracking, Reviewing and Analyzing. These three things are something you should be doing in relation to your business plan, on a consistent basis. It’s not about blindly sticking to your plan, but tweaking your plans to get to the ultimate goal you're seeking; the secret lies in Constant And Never-ending Improvement (CANI). I share an example of a client I worked with, and my step-by-step process to help her get aligned with her business plan and stay on track to reach her goals. I also have an action item for you to work on immediately to get yourself back on track to hit your goals this year, so be sure to tune in.
