Why do we lose motivation in our jobs? How can we create a space of belonging and inclusion? What are the best ways to give and receive feedback?

Liz Fosslien answers all of these questions, and more, in this thoughtful and pertinent interview. As she reveals, emotions in the workplace are not only acceptable—they can actually be incredibly useful in decision making, making connections, and doing great creative work.

This interview is truly eye-opening in establishing how we can unite who we are with what we do, creating a positive working environment for ourselves and those that we work with.

Ep. 32: How to choose the right social media thought leader
Have you ever wondered how to choose the right social media thought leader to follow? Look no further! Welcome to Episode 32 of Instagram Insider Hacks where today I’ll be discussing with Lisa Yvonne on this very topic. Lisa is the founder of @CoffeeandKeyboardco on Instagram, and she's a friend of mine and Business coach here to share some wisdom with us!   (Click below for show notes) Lisa Yvonne @coffeeandkeyboardco 5-Day Follower Growth Challenge (link to join below)   Join my Authentic Instagram Engagement FB group to get all the details! Click image to visit!   L: I’ve really enjoyed the Intensive so far. It's been amazing to target my audience, and I'm definitely seeing some traction. The impact that it can have is exciting! I'm seeing a ton of traffic and relationship growth on my blog. I think promoting my blog on Instagram is so much more impactful than Facebook! My audience is just not getting on Facebook. Instagram seems more positive and image driven as well as video driven. I just feel like it's almost like a ray of sunshine in an otherwise noisy world, like you said!     How to Choose the Right Social Media Thought Leader        Choosing the Right Platform to Find Your Social Media Thought Leader   R:  People are kind of bailing on Facebook and just not loving the vibe there. It makes me excited that we’re on a platform where we can use video and voice to reach our target audience! Lisa is my business coach and we've known each other for a while. It started with both of us in Elite blog Academy, because my “why” was and is still all about child-rearing and building heart-Focused families.    We'll talk a little bit more about how Lisa decided to trust me as a social media thought leader and how that works. First of all, Lisa, I want you to tell us tell us one of your top Lessons Learned--how you got from full-time or part-time to full-time income.    L: I looked back and thought about my childhood businesses and realized I’ve been creating business since I was 9 years old. My grandfather gifted me the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and that inspired me. I think the internet exploded awhile back when I was a beta tester for Pinterest so it's been a hot minute. Sitting at home with toddlers around your feet at your kitchen table without having to pay for another college degree felt like Manna From Heaven I was so excited and I began to monetize my websites.    I reached a point where I had all these different options in front of me. It was like "I can either have a business like this or like this," and I didn't want to choose. There was this idea like an all-you-can-eat buffet and I could make the perfect plate if I just pulled a little bit from each one. It seems like that's not a bad thing, but the problem is is when you're making a recipe-- and the same is true in business-- you really can’t be choosing from other recipes when the ingredients you need are in one zone.        Choosing the Right Leader by Narrowing the Scope   I hit a point where I stopped listening to all of the voices and decided to follow that one voice. That's when you and I started connecting because I'd decided to finally explore Instagram! Before that, I had actually followed you for awhile. My biggest lesson is pick one person at a time to listen to in terms of finding the right social media thought leader. Once you've mastered that, then you go to the next one. Same with platforms! Don't try to learn Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram all at the same time.  You won't do well in any one of them that way.    R: That's right! That's something I learned early on. One of my mentors is Arabah Joy. We try to meet up every once a year and brainstorm together. She said the same thing!

243 | From 6-Figure Freelancer to 7-Figure CEO, Here’s To The Next Chapter!
After 243 episodes, The 6-Figure Freelancer podcast is coming to an end. Manifesting your future is something that I talk about regularly, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t follow that advice myself, as I move from being a six-figure freelancer to a seven-figure CEO. In this final episode, I want to say thank you to all of you who have listened and supported this podcast, as well as talk a little bit about why I’m ending the show and what’s next for me and my team. “I'm sure one day I might go back and listen to all my podcast episodes, see how I've changed as a public speaker, as a podcaster, as a teacher, as someone who shares things with people. You know, it's going to be so cool to see how I've changed and how I've grown. And I'm glad that this little place on the internet can be that archive, that little memento from the time where I ran a multiple-six-figure agency.” ~ @AvaniMiriyala Main Takeaways * When something is out of alignment, recognize it, and take the steps needed to fix it. * I’m no longer a six-figure freelancer which is why I’ve decided to end this chapter of my life. * Sharing is a huge part of learning. I’ve learned so much from the process of making and sharing this podcast. Every time we share something or teach something to someone else, we learn it even more, and that is a magical process. * As you move into different patterns of your life, it’s important to protect your energy, set boundaries, and invest in yourself so that you can show up for your team.
