Questions I ask prior to meeting:

Who are you/what role do you play in your business? *
Owner Yoga teacher and wellness coach

Tell me a little bit about yourself: *
I was born and raised in Venezuela where I went to Law school for a few years before moving to the US over 2 decades ago. My transition wasn't as smooth at the beginning since I encountered hurtful comments and behaviors about being an immigrant and the way I spoke. I became very self-conscious that I did not speak in public for 3 months. Thankfully I realized that my background is what makes me unique and my accent is one of my biggest assists not to mention that speaking two languages is a plus.

I used to suffer from chronic back pain for over a decade that worsens after taking care of a family member that had suffered a stroke in my house. That is when I found the healing power of yoga. I was determined to heal myself naturally leading me to get certified in different holistic modalities to help me become pain-free.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to teach yoga and wellness worldwide. I'm passionate to help others find relief from pain, achieve ultimate health, spiritual connection and live a fulfilling.

Why did you start your business? *
My mom introduced me to meditation at a very early age, Then as a teenager, she took me to a few of her yoga classes which I did not like. Little did I know that many years later I would be teaching yoga and wellness.

My intention was never to teach yoga but suffering from chronic pain landed me on a yoga mat. My determination to heal myself and get to the root cause of my pain led me to study many other holistic approaches to health and wellness.

I was determined to find physical, mental and emotional balance... That became my passion and part of my life's mission.

I'm passionate about teaching and sharing what I've learned through the years with others. It became natural and I felt that was very important to help others like me that were/are in pain and are looking.

What's the best career advice you have ever received? Bonus points if you can name who gave it to you *
Be yourself

What is your proudest career accomplishment and why? *
I've traveled the world teaching yoga and wellness retreats, teacher training and events. This is big considering that I was very self-conscious of how I spoke.

What has been the hardest career moment and how did you overcome it? *
Being told that I was not good enough to teach yoga. It hurt me and I wanted to quit but I come from a family of strong women and traveling the world and quitting is not in my vocabulary so I finished my training and then found one of the best yoga teachers in world and study with her eventually leading to me become a great yoga teacher as well.

Why do you want to be on the show? *
I love everything that is related to yoga and wellness and I feel that together we can continue to help others live a healthier and fulfilling life.

We are at the local coffee shop down the street and I'm about to leave. Tell me 3 things you want me to walk away with from our meeting. *
In order to achieve long-lasting health, we need to address the physical, mental and emotional aspects of our being. Wellness can be simple.
Yoga is for everybody and can be practiced by anyone regardless of gender, size, experience, fitness level, and faith

Questions I ask prior to meeting:

Which social media platform are you MOST active on?
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JillianAmadeaLama/

Do you have any amazing Facebook groups you would like to recommend?
Being Boss is a great one!

Who are you/what role do you play in your business? *
I'm a sales coach & growth strategist. I run my own coaching business and am the wonder-woman extraordinaire!

Tell me a little bit about yourself: *
I grew up all over the world, started my first business (a cake and cupcake shop) in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2010, my husband's a marine so I had to leave the baking behind and go for a more mobile-friendly biz. ;) I've had an amazing life, surfing in Bali and Barbados, dancing in operas, singing in musicals, and now I'm teaching online entrepreneurs how to sell themselves without selling their soul.

Why did you start your business? *
I started my business to be my own boss - I was tired of working for corporate douchbags and being taken advantage of. I also wanted a laptop-business that would travel with me anywhere around the world. I started as a marketing coach in early 2016 and later shifted into sales because I saw a huge need not just for systems and funnels, but for mindset and overcoming fear and procrastination.

What's the best career advice you have ever received? Bonus points if you can name who gave it to you *
My mentor Amy taught me to stand UP in what makes me fuckin awesome, instead of simply trying to stand 'out'. Working with her helped me own my edge and not be afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

What is your proudest career accomplishment and why? *
Despite all my fuckups and failures, I still get back on the horse and keep going. Sometimes I'm embarrassed, sometimes I'm kicking myself for making such a rookie mistake, but never giving up, never giving in, that's my proudest accomplishment. Oh and not partnering up with a guy who wanted to buy out one of my businesses – that would have been a DISASTER!

What has been the hardest career moment and how did you overcome it? *
I spent almost 6 months and over $15,000 in programs, courses, coaching, software, etc and came out with $0 in return. ZERO. I was so ashamed (and probably a little burnt out), that I 'quit' for about 4 months and fell into a depression for about 4-6 weeks. To get out of my downward tailspin, I started volunteering with a non-profit organization spearheading their marketing division, and forcing myself to get back in the game. If it wasn't for the two co-founders, I might not have found my way out! After that, I felt an urge to pursue my business again, but this time I began as a Virtual Assistant and Launch Manager. I had to build up my confidence and have the guts to look at the past year and really assess what worked and what didn't. I realized that the marketing strategies I was using were working, but my mindset and confidence failed me when it came to creating an offer and actually selling it. Hence my work in that field, after doing more work on myself first. ;)

Why do you want to be on the show? *
Everyone needs encouragement, especially when you're just starting out and it's just you, alone on the internet. Plus, I have a unique spin and approach to common topics in the online business world, and I know your audience will love my energy!

We are at the local coffee shop down the street and I'm about to leave. Tell me 3 things you want me to walk away with from our meeting. *
1. Own your edge - it's the only way to truly 'stand out'
2. How can I add more FUN to my business every day?
3. Did she really tackle a crippled guy in Bangladesh, or was she making that shit up???

Favorite quote: 
Life is full of flat squirrels who couldn't make a decision. Don't be a flat squirrel.

What's one thing you must have every month?
Zoodles! But I eat those like every day... a Netflix binge day is definitely a necessity each month!

What's the most memorable gift you've received?
A compliment. This random guy in the gym told me I was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen. I'm not sure if that pickup line works on the other girls, but I was speechless.

What do you do for fun outside of work?
I workout every day, either at the gym or going for a hike nearby. I love going to farmer's markets, live music, trying new wineries, yoga in the park, and my husband got me addicted to playing Pokemon Go... Lol.

Do you have a podcast I could/should be a guest on? Please provide link below
Yes - Mine! I'm launching in August and it's called Going Rogue. I'd love to have you on the show as well! I'll probably think of a few others for you too.

Tell me a little bit about yourself and why you started your business?

By age 28, Nicole Walters was a highly-paid executive at a Fortune 500 company, managing multi-billion dollar accounts. But something wasn’t right. “My job was feeding my family, but not my soul,” she says.

So in YRTK, Nicole quit her corporate job to focus and open her own private business and product development consulting firm, The Monetized Life. As her audience ramped up, so did her revenue—she made $11,000 in the first three weeks of working with small business clients full time.

Now, when she’s not hanging out with her husband and their three foster kids, she shares her secrets to earning “passive income” with other entrepreneurs through her wildly popular online course, 1K1Day. “I teach people how to add commas to their bank accounts,” says Nicole. “They learn that they don’t have to trade time for money.”

Who are you/what role do you play in your business?: Intuitive Marketing Strategist

Tell me a little bit about yourself:: I first had this dream to live and work from anywhere, create my own hours, and live in different cities, 5 years ago. I don't know that I believed it would really happen, but I sure wanted it to. After year 3 in corporate America, I hated it and tried to find something more to life. Eventually, I threw in the towel and decided to go to grad school as my 1-way ticket out of corporate America.

I loved marketing and wanted to be an expert in it and around graduation when everyone else was applying to and interviewing for jobs, I decided to go full on with my business. 16 months later full time, I'm DOING IT! And now I'm on a cross country drive, from Chicago to LA, living my life, working on the word, and loving every second :) !

I am an intuitive marketing strategist and I help spiritual entrepreneurs get confident, visible, and paid so they can deeply impact lives with their gift!

Questions I ask prior to meeting:

Business/Brand/Blog name: Susan McVea Consulting 

Who are you/what role do you play in your business?: CEO and founder: Business Sales & Success Coach

Tell me a little bit about yourself:: I'm a married mama of 2, had been working in corporate sales leadership almost 20 years for a Global 300 selling over $600 million in revenue. Challenged with a major health issue I was forced to walk away and my life changed in one day. I'm now on a mission to help female entrepreneurs sell with more ease and less sleaze while making the money and impact they deserve. I also believe you don't need to work to burn out to be successful.

What are the 2 biggest challenges you have with entrepreneurship: loneliness and pacing- I'm an introvert, but have always worked with others and working from home as an entrepreneur can be lonely! With my chronic pain/illness and being a recovering workaholic, I'm constantly pacing myself so I don't burn out again. Lots of self-care and downtime gets scheduled as top priorities.

We are at the local coffee shop down the street and I'm about to leave. Tell me 3 things you want me to walk away with from our meeting.: impact and serving your purpose is more important than money, but if you serve with passion you will make money,2-never feel bad for asking for help you're not weaker, or less than for needing support and getting help when you need it can help create shifts and help you leap forward when you're stuck, 3-business and what you do is not all of who you are so make sure you know why you're doing this and what YOU stand for as a person being an entrepreneur tests you and is a self-discovery journey like no other.
