Show Notes from this episode with Ana Patricia Bourgeois, Intuitive Business Coach
Key points and takeaways from this episode include:
- Be aware of where you are diminishing yourself. We all have gifts that can be life changing to others.
- People care about the value you provide. They don’t care about how you look. People care about the quality of the message we are sharing.
- We’re not here to please everyone; we are here to share our gifts and the right people will resonate with our message.
- People are looking for specialists not generalists.
- When you are always DOING and don’t take enough time to BE in the present moment and have fun with what you’re doing you will burn out. Take time to find balance in business, enjoy the process and be in the present moment to enjoy what you are doing. That’s the best way to avoid burn out.
- Pour into yourself first before pouring into the business, into your clients and getting to all the tasks.
- Our minds are always in problem-solving mode. To truly listen to our intuition and unconscious, we need to quiet down our mind. Make space to quieten your mind and be in the moment.
- Podcasting can bring you connections, referrals, collaborations and new business. Most important, though, is the impact you can have.
- With your podcast, focus less on the number of downloads or number of listeners or vanity metrics; rather focus on the impact – share your story, bring on incredible guests and have fun with it.
- Take your content and re-purpose it into different media, as people consume content in different ways.
