We’ve Got Cows (Episode 15)

We’re baaaaack! I am so excited to get back to recording the Unsexy Side for you again! Remember that scene from Twister with the cows flying through the air? I feel like that in my business sometimes; that there are too many cows to pay attention to the tornado bearing down on me. That’s what […] The post We’ve Got Cows (Episode 15) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Don’t Drink The Water (Episode 13)

Online entrepreneurship is hard and, often, lonely work. Sometimes we overcompensate by ::ahem:: oversharing our big wins with anyone and everyone who will listen. I get it. I’m tempted to toot my own horn sometimes – especially when I feel invisible. But is that really helpful for my business? Is it even helpful for me […] The post Don’t Drink The Water (Episode 13) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

The S Curve (Episode 12)

Walt Disney’s love of railroads was no passing fancy. He was obsessed – obsessed to the point of building the Carolwood Pacific, a 1/8th scale steam train, in his backyard. Walt would spend hours tinkering with his beloved engine, the Lilly Belle, and giving all of his guests (children and adults alike) rides around the track. […] The post The S Curve (Episode 12) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

A Debilitating Case of the I’m-Nots (Episode 11)

Even during the best of seasons, moments of introspection can be a challenging or negative experience. Pile the stress of the holidays on top of end-of-the-year catch up? It can spiral downwards pretty fast. Fortunately, Coach from Cheers came to my rescue with a sweet moment of silliness that helped lift me right out of my […] The post A Debilitating Case of the I’m-Nots (Episode 11) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Follow the White Rabbit (Episode 10)

Recently, my husband and I were totally blindsided by a great opportunity. It’s a nice thing to have happen, but the unexpected outcome was a boost in productivity! There are lots of iterations of the White Rabbit. There’s Alice’s White Rabbit, Neo’s White Rabbit, and, of course, that pesky line of code from Jurassic Park […] The post Follow the White Rabbit (Episode 10) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Calling Captain Narcissist (Episode 9)

Welp. That didn’t take long. My first episode of The Unsexy Side that was totally spur of the moment. I put on my angry eyes for this one, y’all! (Not really super angry. More amused and kind of fired up.) I know that business is hard. I know that we all want to take shortcuts […] The post Calling Captain Narcissist (Episode 9) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Abe Froman (Episode 8)

Sometimes running your own business can feel like those endless months in high school where you were just counting down the days until the end of the year. The monotony can really get to you. But there’s one way to get your mojo back big time: play hooky for a little bit. And who better […] The post Abe Froman (Episode 8) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Creepy Clowns (Episode 7)

Do you ever feel like your calendar is dragging you under the bed like that creepy clown from Poltergeist. Confession: course creation is my creepy clown. I'm currently in the middle of a scheduling nightmare and it's 100% my fault. I let myself get swept up in a desire to do everything ASAP rather than make my plans in a way that would be sustainable. So, in today's episode, we're crowdsourcing great ideas for setting and maintaining boundaries in our businesses. Please leave your best...

Pandemonium (Episode 6)

In today's episode, we're tackling jealous and how it ties in with a harmful maxim in the entrepreneurial space. Take a listen and then share your thoughts on today's question! Today's Question The post Pandemonium (Episode 6) appeared first on Lauren Gaggioli.

Slaying Sharks (Episode 5)

I know a lot of entrepreneurs *hate* sales. Most of us in the online space are creatives. We love making "the thing" (whatever the thing is). We are so good at creating amazing products that the traditional view of marketing and sales can feel very stilted. In this episode, I'll cover 3 areas where I think a lot of online entrepreneurs are getting sales wrong and how we can fix it so that we can profit more by doing less. (Sounds pretty amazing, right?) Our teacher today is one fine,...

Me, Myself, and My Business (Episode 4)

Well, that didn't take long! Just a few weeks into this new podcast and I hit a wall - a wall of emotional and physical fatigue that kept me from getting a show posted last week. To be honest, not posting this podcast that I am so enjoying producing made me feel like a total failure. Then again, how useful would a show be if it simply recaps whining about where I am? Not very. Instead, I opted to wait and gain a little perspective so that what I am able to bring to you today is not only...

Touch the Butt (Episode 3)

If you want bigger wins, you have to swim in deeper waters. Today, we're going to dive in and explore the adventures that await us if we dare to push beyond our comfort zone. This foray into the unknown will be led by a tiny clownfish named Nemo. Are you pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone? Resources Mentioned If you want help learning the proper way to pitch yourself, I highly recommend Janet Murray's Soulful PR. Janet's Facebook community, blog, and podcast are incredibly...

The One Who Knocks (Episode 2)

Today we're spending a little time with Walter White. I think the reason that so many people root for this teacher-turned-drug-lord throughout Breaking Bad is this pivotal scene from Season 4, Episode 6. There is something transcendent about witnessing another person's transformation. To see this meek and mild man seize opportunity and chart his own path is both horrifying on the one hand but exhilarating on the other. How can this moment help entrepreneurs build more creative...

Lucky Luke (Episode 1)

Because I simply can't help myself, today we're talking about Luke Skywalker. While I'm more of a Han Solo girl myself, I think a re-examination of Luke's fancy flying at the end of A New Hope can give us all a little boost in our business mindset. We'll take a second look at just how lucky Luke may (or may not) be. Take a listen and then let me know your thoughts on today's question over on my Facebook page. (If you're listening in the future, you can go straight to the post by clicking...
