Let's celebrate a year of the RYBLAB podcast with a life and business update!
Today we’re celebrating 1 year of the Run Your Business Like a Boss podcast!
So I wanted to change it up and have a different format for today’s episode. I’m going to let you in and share where I’m currently at in my life and business in a casual and relaxed way.
I’m starting off with the journey of renovating our house and the challenges surrounding the current cost of living, inflation and increasing supply chain issues that led us to take a different path.
We’re then planning on taking a trip in January with the kids to the USA and Canada to go skiing, visit Disneyland and enjoy an amazing experience together as a family.
I wanted to open up and talk about the important values and focus in our lives. We’re moving towards a more climate-friendly and environmentally sustainable lifestyle with a new electric car, solar panels, removing gas and buying new electric appliances.
I then branch over and share all about our business updates, including social media strategies, vision board updates, and my current offers and programs. I’m opening up the doors for the 2nd round of The Run Your Business Like a Boss Academy! Join the waitlist so you don’t miss out and you’ll access a special price.
I thoroughly enjoyed bringing you this candid conversation that checks in on where we’re currently sitting in our life and business. I hope you take ideas and motivation from our experiences and plans to bring into your business and life.
Topics We Covered:
[0:48]: When I launched the show a year ago, I gave myself 6 months. I want to take this moment to say thank you for tuning in each week.
[3:06]: We purchased our house 5 years ago and started planning our renovation in 2018 which included 7 bedrooms. We made the decision late last year that we don’t want to build such a big house so we redesigned it.
[5:46]: Unfortunately when we started doing this process, supply chain issues became very problematic. Every quote we got was going up by $100k and the last quote we got was about 3 times the cost it would’ve cost pre-pandemic.
[6:43]: We made the decision not to go ahead with the renovation and to change the format of the house instead.
[8:16]: We’ve booked a trip to the USA and Canada in January with the kids. We’re going to skiing, visit Disneyland and enjoy an amazing experience with the family.
[9:01]: We’re focused on moving towards a more climate-friendly and environmentally sustainable lifestyle.
[9:37]: We’ve purchased a new electric car.
[11:51]: We’ve purchased a new oven and are removing the gas from the house and buying an induction stove.
[12:53]: I watched The Dropout on Disney+ which is based on the story of Elizabeth Holmes who is the founder of Theranos.
[13:42]: This show made me reflect more on living by your values and ensuring your business aligns with those values. Check out the article Goals Gone Wild here.
[15:16]: I did a reset for the next 6 months and added in to reflect on my annual vision board. If you want me to share my own journey and take on manifesting, let me know!
[17:30]: In my business, I hired Kylie Chown to help me with my LinkedIn strategy and optimize my profile. I previously found LinkedIn to be quite intimidating but now I’m enjoying it and have been spending more time putting content into the platform.
[20:42]: I’ve been struggling with the overwhelm on Instagram recently. I’ve found LinkedIn to keep me much more focused.
[21:10]: I’ve also been spending more time investing in Pinterest. Check out last week’s episode on this platform with Erica Muddiman.
[22:10]: I’m still doing the business strategy days and the Business Accelerator Coaching Program. I’m a big advocate for The One Thing by Gary Keller.
[23:22]: We’re in Cohort 1 of the Run Your Business Like a Boss Academy and it’s going so well. I use a scaffolding approach where I layer in all of the different elements to develop your business model for your next level growth.
[25:08]: I’m opening up the doors for the 2nd round! Join the waitlist for The Run Your Business Like a Boss Academy and you’ll access a special price.
[26:48]: I’m so grateful for every guest that has come onto the podcast and shared their expertise.
