Transforming Your Mindset Through Hypnosis & NLP with Billé Frazier

4/2/2024
“You know, it hurts. Nobody likes rejection and somebody didn't like you—whether it be in a relationship or in a job. But you have to figure out how to get up and dust yourself off and make it work. And that's a large part of what I try to impart to my clients, too, when I'm working with them.” After Billé Frazier was laid off from what she believed to be her “dream job,” she decided to take it as a sign from above that it was time to turn her side hustle into a full time career. Today, Billé is a keynote speaker, an author, and the founder of Follow the LeadHer, a coaching agency aimed at empowering women to align with their authentic selves beyond societal expectations. With over 20 years of experience in human resources, Billé has honed her skills in transformational change, conflict resolution, and diversity and inclusion. In her work with Follow the LeadHer, Billé uses Neuro Linguistic Programming to help clients overcome negative thoughts and limiting behaviors in order to foster a life of authenticity and purpose. Tune in and hear Billé explain why we should start incorporating NLP into our lives, the lessons she’s learned about marketing Follow the LeadHer, and what she considers her biggest business win to date.

Demystifying the Health Insurance Industry with Dr. Noor Ali

3/26/2024
“Show up dressed as your next level self. So, whoever that ‘her’ is that you're projecting—whether that's five years or 10 years—show up as her. Embodying her, not just dressed as her… Proving to yourself like, ‘Hey, I just did it 10 years before I thought that I could do it.’” When Dr. Noor Ali moved back to the US after completing her medical training and starting her career as a surgeon in Bangladesh, she found herself unable to continue practicing medicine—and she felt like she’d completely lost her identity. Nearly a decade later, Noor has pivoted her career from medicine to health insurance expert, leading her own consulting practice in Tampa, Florida. Drawing upon her medical education and training, Noor dedicates herself to empowering female founders by demystifying health insurance and guiding them through the complexities of the industry. By connecting her clients with accessible and effective plans that work for their unique lives and businesses, she ensures that they feel secure and confident in their coverage. Tune in and hear how Noor remains committed to her medical roots despite her busy schedule and why she prioritizes volunteering her time and services any chance she gets. What we talk about: Dr. Noor’s current business came from her biggest struggle (02:05) How Dr. Noor recovered from the toughest professional set back of her life (06:47) The red tape and bureaucracy of the US health insurance industry (09:37) Cookie cutter insurance plans don’t make anyone happy (12:05) Dr. Noor’s favorite success story (16:40) Long-term business goals (21:30) Connect with Dr. Noor: Website LinkedIn Members of our Entreprenista League get access to live Office Hours with top founders that have been on our show!

How to Legally Protect Your Business with Lauren Bercuson

3/19/2024
“In the beginning, if you don't have a team or a system or community around you, it's very easy to feel lost. There are these amazing communities out there for amazing female founders that will really help guide and support you. So, the greatest lesson I learned pretty quickly was that you're never alone. Or, if you feel alone, there are ways to get out of that.” When trademark attorney Lauren Bercuson began the process of founding her own boutique firm, she quickly learned just how lonely and intimidating the process could be.

Her dedication to providing honest, ethical guidance and personalized attention has helped her build strong relationships with a diverse clientele from startup business owners to creatives of all kinds.

Formulating Beauty Business Success with Emilie Mascarell

3/12/2024
“It's a crowded space. It's expensive. It takes time. And not everybody is an overnight success. So, I think it's important to know how to play with the rules of the game and how to set yourself in a way that is really going to differentiate you and… is going to serve you. I want to make sure that your formulation, that your packaging, that anything you develop is aligned with your vision.” When Emilie Mascarell first started at cult fragrance powerhouse Le Labo, they were still a small start up with just a handful of stores worldwide. After a decade growing with the company and through their acquisition by Estee Lauder, she found herself nostalgic for those early growth stages of a beauty company. Now, Emilie is the founder and CEO of Emilie Consulting, a firm specializing in removing the secrecy in fragrance and beauty product development and setting new brands up for success. Today, she collaborates closely with brands to bring their unique vision to life, ensuring that every product receives the attention it deserves to lead it towards market success through her personalized approach. Tune in and hear our conversation with Emilie about transforming a girlhood passion into a lifelong career, how sitting down with NASDAQ has boosted her brand, and her approach to product development and strategy within her own business.

Training to Sell with Candice D’Angelo

3/5/2024
“We really have to get into this mindset of, ‘Maybe I'm not the best at sales, but I'm doing my best.’ I'm going to get better every conversation I have. I'm going to learn with every conversation that I have. We're going to get better with every single call.” Candice D’Angelo spent the first year of her corporate career having doors slammed in her face and getting fired—six times! Though she eventually found some success, the experience made her realize how little interest she had in playing the big business game. That’s when she became a corporate drop out and made it her mission to bring her skill set to the world of entrepreneurship. In 2018, Candice founded The Selling Lab in response to the need for a collective space dedicated to women seeking sales support to grow their self-made businesses. Today, we’re chatting with Candice about all things sales, what it’s like to work with her one-on-one, and how to avoid many solopreneurs’ biggest mistakes. What we talk about: Sales is all about relationships (05:45) Where the future of sales training is headed (08:27) Follow up is the backbone of successful sales (10:51) How Candice balances the demands of running two businesses with her family life (12:40) Candice’s two favorite business tools that keep her and her team on track (24:12) Connect with Candice: LinkedIn The Selling Lab Members of our Entreprenista League get access to live Office Hours with top founders that have been on our show!

The Finishing Touch with Stephanie Purzycki

2/13/2024
“I time block and I say, ‘This is going to be the time specific to managing the business.’ Being able to manage my time correctly and know when I'm doing what. In this post COVID era where we're all working remotely, being able to connect face to face is also important. So, our weekly zoom calls, those are important to stay connected and really understand what everybody else is working on.” As a new mom, Stephanie Purzycki found herself on an endless string of playdates with her little one at different homes, but everyone seemed to have the same question.

Revisit: Building a Subscription Business from the Ground Up with Marnie Madras

1/30/2024
As the mother to four children under the age of 10, Marnie will tell you herself; she loved being pregnant. So much so she couldn't bear the idea that there were Mothers out there struggling with their pregnancies and failing to find the support they needed that solely focused on them.

Making the Bed with Ruby Russell

1/23/2024
“I’ve had a few setbacks. One was our first [launch in] March 2020. And guess what? The world shut down. And so I tried again on March the 13th 2023. I was at the London Stock Exchange when, guess what? That was the day that Silicon Valley crashed. So, all you can do is laugh it off and move forward. You don't cry over spilt milk.” When Ruby Russell’s partner suffered a back injury that left him unable to make the bed, she was inspired to design a product that would significantly simplify the daily chores for those with disabilities. Ruby is now the founder and CEO of RR Distinctive Beddings, a revolutionary bedding company aiming to combine luxury with accessibility and to take the complexity out of making the bed. With her two patents, Befitted Bedding and Stay Put Bedding, she is changing how we sleep. Today, we’re chatting with Ruby about the personal inspiration behind her inventions, designing a product with a particular consumer in mind, and her strategy to garner more visibility for her inventions. What we talk about: Using a personal disability to achieve greater good (02:47) The process of securing a patent (08:11) Why product variety is key (11:38) Ruby’s experience bootstrapping without investors (18:47) How Befitted is expanding their product line (21:35) Connect with Ruby: LinkedIn Befitted Bedding Instagram Members of our Entreprenista League get access to live Office Hours with top founders that have been on our show!

Certifying Your Company with Heather Cox

1/16/2024
“If you don't have the time or money to do it once, you definitely do not have the time or money to do it twice—so make sure you outsource to experts the first time.” When Heather Cox was pregnant with her first baby, she knew continuing to work was a non-negotiable—she just wasn’t sure what, exactly, that would look like after her little one arrived. Now, 15 years and five kids later, Heather is the co-founder and president of Certify My Company, a service that facilitates diversity certifications for women, ethnic minority, LGBT, veteran, service disabled veteran, and disability owned businesses so that owners can put their time and energy into what matters most. With CMC, Heather and her co-founder have created the national leader in transforming Fortune 1000 supplier diversity programs into profit centers. Today, we sit down with Heather to talk about the importance of raising independent children, the process behind getting a diversity certification through CMC, and the importance of leveraging your diversity certification once you receive it. What we talk about: Early rising can be a key to success (03:33) Your time is a nonrenewable resource (06:54) Business owners should prioritize applying for a diversity certification (14:31) Organizing and building out an in-person calendar (17:24) A real life example of how diversity certification can transform a business (22:07) Connect with Heather: Certify My Company LinkedIn Members of our Entreprenista League get access to live Office Hours with top founders that have been on our show!

Finding Your Ultimate Purpose with Harli Gawronski

1/9/2024
“You're always focused on the big goal, and you don't celebrate the little wins in between. And that is so important. And for me, it's something that I had to learn, was to celebrate the little wins in between—because that's what keeps you going to the ultimate goal.” Harli Gawronski’s eureka moment came to her during the COVID-19 pandemic: her true purpose was outside of corporate America. Though she had gained experience and knowledge as she made her way through the ranks, she realized that her voice wasn’t being used to its fullest potential. Out of this period of self discovery, Harli’s podcast was born. Inside the Bubble with Harli G was created for moms on-the-go and every day super women who excel at their 9-5s while nurturing their loved ones at home and contributing to their greater communities. Today, we’re sitting down with Harli to talk about the inspiration for her podcast, the importance of real, purpose-driven self care, and focusing on the big goals. What we talk about: Crafting self-care time even in chaos (05:45) The importance of engagement and interaction (09:32) Setting an example for your kids (15:19) Mentorship can lead to greater success (18:49) Consistency is key (20:30) Connect with Harli: Instagram Inside the Bubble with Harli G Inside the Bubble podcast Members of our Entreprenista League get access to live Office Hours with top founders that have been on our show!
