There’s a plethora of information that is available to us at any given moment. At times, it can feel fun and powerful; other times, it can feel completely overwhelming. I asked myself, “How much content can you consume?” And it sparked the idea for this post.
I love learning. It is one of my favorite past times. I admit that I can get caught up and press the “buy now” button for the next new course, subscribe to a trending podcast, opt-in to get that oh so enticing pdf, and more! Can you relate?
If I calculated the hours of content that I’ve purchased (on a range of subjects), it truly could accumulate to a bachelor’s degree!
That‘s not even including free sources like YouTube, MarieTV, Gaia, TedTalks, podcasts, Facebook lives, webinars, summits, etc. Then, of course, there‘s the slew of daily emails from businesses that I admire, audiobooks, and ebooks…you get...
Nicoletta Mura is a Career Confidence Coach with an extensive background in leadership and career development. Her mission is to close the confidence gap to help passion-driven women to claim a seat at the table and lead the way.
Nico overcame her confidence challenge and became a manager for a Fortune 500 company and she now helps other women to achieve their career goals, advocating for themselves with ease and authenticity.
When she moved to the UK, with English not being her first language, Nicoletta noticed she was retreating into her shell due to lack of confidence. She realized in order to advance in her career and also have authentic relationships she had to step out of her comfort zone and allow people to truly get to know the real her.
Practicing English, which was uncomfortable at the time, is what helped her with...
After reading the title, did you think I was going to write about a deep dive discussion? I literally mean a deep dive — a scuba dive that is!
I became increasingly enamored of it when I started snorkeling and then progressed onto scuba diving.
Today, I was reflecting on one of my experiences. My bestie and I took an adventure to the Bahamas intending to get our Specialty Diver Shark Awareness Certification. Even the idea of it held a certain thrill and excitement.
Then the day came when we had completed the academic portion of the course and it was time for the open water section. Two dives were required — a free swim with sharks and a shark feeding dive. So, we hopped on the boat with fins in hand and giddy with anticipation.
After our proper “buddy check,” we descended into the...
On the podcast, I’ve interviewed over 30 female entrepreneurs from around the world.
Each with their own story of how they began, their triumphs and tribulations.
It’s been awesome!
Lifting up women on the solopreneur path is one of my all-time favorite things. Not only does it provide connection it inspires others. I’ve received loads of emails from people whether they were just in the concept stage or a seasoned veteran telling me that being able to plug into real talk about women in business was just what they needed.
I love that!
Today’s episode is a little different.
Back in November, I conducted some market research and spoke with dozens of women at various stages in their business. I started to see a common theme.
Here’s what I learned:
*They all desired business mentorship, they saw the value in having a business coach guide them and show...

So you have a great product.
That’s not enough.
The fact is, the marketplace is crowded, the social feeds are noisy, and most commercials — annoying. As a solopreneur, how do you stand-out, get noticed, and build your tribe?
Yep! That’s it! The single most important way to build and engage your audience is through communication. And not just any blah, blah, blah. It has to be great. Crafting a 2-way conversation is a must. And…it has to be compelling enough for them to stick around until the end.
One of the most effective ways to share your message is through storytelling. Everyone loves a super story. It takes us on a journey. If done well, we feel like we are right there with the author; laughing, crying, outraged. It allows us to escape our world, and turn down the volume of life, if even for just a moment or two.
Once you pull in your reader,...

Alessia works out of Helsinki, Finland and has been a full-time entrepreneur for over 3 years.

With summer upon us here in Upstate, New York, it brings about many images of overflowing gardens and the abundance of flowering trees. As I was looking at my garden, correlations between gardening and growing a new business started coming to mind.
Let’s look at how you can grow your business and what it takes to reap the “fruits of your labor.”
Any good gardener knows that taking time and care when designing a new garden is crucial. There is a lot of work, hours of preparation and toil, and expense that goes into establishing a “new site.” Similarly, a new business owner has to create a home on the web and put the same effort into developing its new site to launch from.
Once the site is set up, the building foundation comes next. For the gardener, deciding what type of garden you want is an important factor. After researching the pros and...

She is a storyteller, a community builder and a humanitarian. She believes that we all have a story to tell and that each story is unique and important.

The paper never says anything bad to you. You can say whatever you want to the paper and the paper always listens.
Shannon spends a lot of her time helping other writers develop and...
