UPDATE: Last week we talked about how we weren't doing a video version of the show but this week Caroline talked Jason into just doing a simpler video version and letting go of some of the production effort.

We need to stop measuring our self-worth with social media

5/26/2019
More
Being on social media websites can be helpful for our businesses and for staying connected with loved ones, but the longer we spend on these networks the more our self-worth gets tied to them. We've realized over the years how swept up our decision-making can get with social media metrics. Even on this episode, we talk about not posting more "real" moments because they don't match the curated life we want to portray. We definitely don't have all the answers when it comes to NOT measuring...

5/19/2019
More
When it comes to getting rid of bad habits the first thing you need to do is acknowledge them. So often we go through life not changing our ways because we're ashamed of some of the choices we make and don't want to deal with adjusting our behaviors. But, like many things in life, when you do the hard work you come out a better person because of it! We're not going to pretend we've gotten rid of all of our bad habits (ahem: Caroline's clothes pile and Jason's limited patience with all...

Slow and steady wins the race (but it's HARD)

5/5/2019

It's really easy to hand out business advice and platitudes when everything is going well (as the person giving the advice).

We're making a big business pivot (Unedited Meeting)

5/2/2019

You don't run an online business if you don't use the word "pivot" and constantly find yourself experimenting! For us, that's what the past year has been almost on an almost daily basis with our Wandering Aimfully Memberships. In this Unedited Meeting, we share our thought process with switching BACK to our "lifetime pricing" model (aka: BuyOurFuture).

Our secret to success (well, one of them)

We aren't going to bury the lead, our secret to success is: Doing things differently. That might sound nebulous and generic but when you dive into this week's WAIMSHOW episode you'll hear specific ways we use "doing things differently" as a filter for everything we do: Building companies, selling products, attracting customers, creating content, etc. Thinking outside the proverbial box is something EVERYONE can do, it's just not something everyone DOES do.

How to deal with self-doubt and imposter syndrome

2/3/2019
More
Let us start off by saying EVERYONE deals with self-doubt. Especially when it comes to running your own business or making a big change in your life, it's normal to go through imposter syndrome. One way Caroline deals with self-doubt before starting something new is to acknowledge how much she'd regret not doing that thing. Yes, it's scary to navigate uncharted waters, but it's much worse to have never dipped your toes in those waters and always wondered "what if." For Jason, dealing with...
