Invest in Yourself with Purpose and Potential Coach Becca White

“Showing up for yourself has a return on investment that never stops.” Today’s guest on the Brava Podcast believes in this statement through and through. Here on Brava, we discuss a lot about “the leap” to get to that next step, to achieve that goal and to enact change for the better whether it’s in your life or at work.

 Meet today’s guest: Becca White. Becca is a purpose and potential coach specializing in helping women battling postpartum, balancing business and leaping in life. Tune in below or on iTunes to learn how you can invest in yourself and in your dream with purpose and without fear.

Becca White The Brava Podcast

SHOW NOTES:

Becca’s business is to help others find their purpose.  She loves problem-solving and the power of a silver-lining to help others. When she became pregnant with her first child she began looking at things completely differently. Her business was born because she started asking for guidance after battling postpartum after having her children (2:30.)

Everybody goes through the fear/ love cycle of taking the leap into a new idea or phase of life. Becca wants to help her clients identify what their gifts are so that they are so aligned with their purpose that it creates momentum that won’t stop (4:23.)

Becca believes that mentors are vital for your growth:

You need someone who will hold space for you as a sounding board and is 100% in your court.
— Becca White

Becca’s advice on balancing your 9-5, family, friends, side-hustle and more? “Quit making it hard for yourself.” She believes its essential to identify what your gift and goal is and clear out all of your other distractions (7:45.)

This year Becca is devoting her time and her research to postpartum and is writing a book about her findings. She finds a lot of people don’t report postpartum and that there is a shame surrounding it. She wants to shake-up the diagnosis theory. She believes it’s important to hold space for a new family similarly to how we treat the loss of a loved one and show up for the new mother in a similar way (17:30.)

Becca on the importance of reaching out to mother’s too in the postpartum period:

We don’t do a good job on mothering the mother.
— Becca White

Becca’s favorite advice? Eventually you’re going to have to jump. You got this Brava listeners!

How to Live a Creative Life with Mrs. Kay Hillman

Today’s episode will serve as a challenge in how we each can live a more creative life. And, no – that does not mean by the end of this interview that we’ll be wearing berets, holding a paintbrush in our one hand and one-way tickets to Paris in the other. We’re going to be diving into the essential ways we can each look at a challenge or goal (whether it be in your personal or work life) and see how it can be tackled in a creative fashion.

Meet Mrs. Kay Hillman, photographer, social media maven, business coach, podcaster and blogger! Kay helps women to deal with the many facets of being an entrepreneur: branding, content creation, finances – you name it. Tune in to hear from Kay and how she lives her creative life to the fullest.  

SHOW NOTES:

I like to tell people I really do the most. I fell into this! I need to find something that aligns with who I am that I am passionate about. Since 2018 I haven’t looked back. I’m passionate about teaching others, especially women entrepreneurs and female creatives (1:40.)

The most challenging part of jumping into an entrepreneurial work life?

It’s a mindset shift. You have to stop thinking like an employee and start thinking like a business owner.
— Mrs. Kay Hillman

When you start monetizing what you are doing, that is when you step into the realm of being a “creative entrepreneur (5:30.)

Looking to launch your creative business? Mrs. Kay Hillman recommends to create a portfolio or body of work as your first step. Take it from a hobby to a REAL idea (7:55.)

Have you practiced manifesting your goals, hopes and dreams? Mrs. Kay Hillman does not believe in secrets. She believes that if she knows, everybody else should know. Thus, she shares her goals and her “hows” across her site and social media. She loves to share her big goals whether she may reach them or not (10:00.)

My table is open to everybody. There are plenty of chairs.
— Mrs. Kay Hillman

Mrs. Kay Hillman’s goal is to help empower women to use their creativity and passion to help them earn money doing what they love (11:20.)

Want to try manifestation for the first time? To Mrs. Kay Hillman, manifestation is setting your intentions and goals to the forefront of your mind and your speaking positivity into whatever you are manifesting (13:00.)

Manifestation frees you from all the things that stress you out (16:47.)

To live a more creative life each day Mrs. Kay Hillman likes to talk to people and reach out to her community. She surrounds herself by high energy women and loves to spend her time outside. Finding your creativity is very personal, it’s not a one-sized fit all solution (18:38.)

Mrs. Kay Hillman just launched a new e-book, “Milk the Cow” that is set out to help entrepreneurs create content that will help you attract your ideal client (20:55). '

In 2019 I will…do inspired work (23:30.)

Minding Your Own Business with Ilana Griffo

Welcome back listeners! Today’s guest is Ilana Griffo. Today on Brava we’re discussing how you can take your creative passion and grow it into your full-time gig…and Ilana is an expert on this! She’s a freelance designer and illustrator. Plus, she’s a newly published author of the book, “Mind Your Business”! Want to start your own side-hustle? Tune in now below to mind your (own) business with Ilana Griffo.

Illana Griffo

SHOW NOTES:

Ilana always knew she wanted to be a graphic designer. She went to school for graphic design and started freelancing immediately while working full-time. She went off on her own four years ago and hasn’t looked back since (1:05).

Despite using school to hone in on her design craft, her favorite class in school was a career development class that focused on interview tips and tricks and how to conduct yourself in the professional world (2:25).

Ilana wrote her book to help other creatives (like you!) create the business foundation to launch their careers (3:30)!

Working from home can be tough with all the distractions around you. Illana created a dedicated office for herself. A day in the life for Ilana includes her one year old son, a to-do list and drawing (7:00).

She sources inspiration from every aspect of life and is very inspired by the seasons (8:22).

When reviewing your own business, Ilana recommends not diving directly into a branding voice until you find your voice as a brand (10:50).

It takes a lot of adventure and trial and error to develop and find your voice (12:00).

The hardest part of publishing her new book, “Mind Your Own Business”? The beginning and getting started! What helped? Her loyal and hard-working team (13:45).

Ilana’s go-to mantras: “Do it with passion or not at all” and “ask for what you want.”

Hoping to start your own side-hustle, Ilana recommends just to…start! Never stop having fun with it (17:45).

For today’s discussion, we’re going to take a step into the start-up space. Whether you have your eyes set on an entrepreneurial venture in retail, finance or technology I hope that our conversation will ignite a spark within your own career path.

Let me introduce to you a powerful serial entrepreneur. Today’s guest is Erica Amatori. She’s the Director of Marketing at Burrow and Co-Founder of TheBit at the impressive age of just 23. Tune in below!

SHOW NOTES:

Erica is the VP of Marketing at Burrow, an e-commerce start-up that is changing up the furniture space. Their value lies in that their furniture is extremely comfortable and adaptable. She’s also the co-founder of thebitdaily.com a source from crypto-education and a crypto-community (1:26).

On knowing when to invest her time or money on a start-up, Erica first needs to believe in not just idea, but also the team (2:50).

“To know whether a start-up is right for me I act like my own venture capitalist firm.”

Start-ups are a roller coaster. The highs are high, the lows are low. When you don’t think there is a market for your service or product, you have to be real with yourself and move on (5:12).

It’s not a failure, it’s a learning.
— Erica Amatori

With an idea, is it better to be authentic or original? Erica says neither. She thinks you truly need is product market fit. A demand and audience for the product (7:15).

To Erica, “innovation” means to find opportunity gaps and fill them. Finding a broken process and fixing it (9:00).

Innovative ideas come from innovative people. Character traits such as curiosity allow you to question the current processes and finding new solves. Practice this by always asking questions (10:20).

Behind every successful person there are a lot of unsuccessful years.
— Erica Amatori
