If so, it may be time to take a good hard look at your business culture. "The most important thing for your company and your service is your internal culture." - Gary Vaynerchuk People, more than anything else, want to feel a sense of community and belonging. When we develop a strong culture within our businesses, we create a sense of loyalty from our customers. Without a strong sense of culture, our customers will tend to have 'shiny object syndrome' and will always be looking for the latest and greatest new offer. On the other hand, when we offer a product or service that comes with a strong sense of culture and belonging, people are much more likely to stick around for the long term as repeat customers and members. In this episode, I will give you some examples of strong business culture and talk about why the culture of your business is just as important (if not MORE important) than your marketing strategies. Enjoy the episode and let me know if you have any questions. Are you in a company with a solid business culture? If so, I'd love to hear some examples of what your experience has been like and what has you sticking around for the ling haul.

View the full show notes on my blog at: https://amystarrallen.com/29 In this episode, I spoke about a topic that has been surfacing a lot lately- playing small vs. living a fully self-expressed life. I wanted to address a trend that I see with many entrepreneurs, where they prefer to hide out on social media (by using a fake name or a page that most of their peers and family won't see), because they are afraid of the judgement of others about what they are doing. I invited you to ask yourself, "What is my life for?" and to determine what the legacy is that you want to leave. Knowing this will help you to get out of your own way and to stop hiding out so that the world can see you and support you on your mission. Enjoy the episode, and I love you.

View the full show notes on my blog at: https://amystarrallen.com/28 In this episode, I spoke about another way to view failure- a way to see it as a positive in your life, not something that needs to be avoided. I also shared my thoughts about how it's possible to find the good in all things, to find the greater meaning of even the things that seem tragic, unfair, unjust, and extremely sad. I shared a story about this from my own life, regarding the death of my mother in a car accident, and the good I was able to find in it. I shared this just as an example that, if you look, you can find the gifts in all situations, no matter how tragic they are. Enjoy the episode, and I love you.

I shared my thoughts on the topic of duplication, in business and in life, and why I don't believe in it or agree with it. Just remember that you are unique, you have unique gifts to share with the world, and you never need to feel like you should be like anyone else. Enjoy the episode, and I love you.

View the full show notes on my blog at: https://amystarrallen.com/26 In this episode, I am joined by Andrea Freeman, the creator of the H.O.S.T Your Life Accelerator. We had a conversation about different ways to uplevel your business (or get a new business off the ground) by focusing on your mindset. I loved this conversation so much because Andrea and I have a lot of the same beliefs about how important it is to be in alignment in order to succeed in our business, and following your heart instead of your mind. Enjoy the episode! Here are some of the topics that were covered in this episode: How much of our business is affected by our subconscious and limiting beliefs How your personal evolution fuels your business revolution Why you can’t outperform your mindset What it means to serve your bold life purpose vs. industry standards Discerning your mind from your heart, turning inside for your answers, quieting the comparison Developing a relationship with your internal voice Being a lighthouse in the harbor so that your ideal clients can find you Why so many sales funnel break down when energy is not aligned Being aligned with the spiritual component of your business The importance of trusting divine timing Collaborations and partnerships for expansion and momentum Abundance mindset vs. scarcity mindset The art of receiving What thought leadership consists of and how to create a legacy in your industry Being a ‘host’ in your business (instead of a guest) What to focus on when you are just getting started in your business (alignment and manifestation) How to stop focusing on what you don’t have to manifest what you want About Andrea Freeman: Andrea Freeman started her first business when she was 12 years old. Three businesses and a lot of learning later, she was hosting red carpet celebrities in her event planning business. But, she felt unfulfilled. She said to herself, “There has to be a better way!” That pivotal moment prompted a soulful search. Today, Andrea uses her groundbreaking H.O.S.T Your Life™ Method and successful track record as a business owner to coach creative entrepreneurs. Her mission is to help business owners align with their purpose, create results with greater ease, and make a lasting impact in the world.

If you've been following me for some time, you've probably heard me talk about this before... the subject of being 'on mission'. When I learned about this, it literally changed everything for me in my business (and my life). I went from worrying about messing up, or what others might think about what I was doing, to simply sharing from my heart, the things I know that I'm here to share. In today's episode, I will share how I came to have this shift... and I will share some of the messages that have been showing up for me in the last couple of days from some of my colleagues and mentors that I think might make a big difference for you.

So, when I learn something new that I think could help you as well, I’m all about sharing it with you. This concept that I’m going to talk about today is a whole new concept for me… and something that I’m very fascinated with at the moment. When I was first introduced to the idea of marketing with memes, my first reaction was, “No… I don’t think that would work for me. I don’t like a lot of the memes that I see online, they don’t really resonate with me.” But as I started to look into it further, I saw something that basically blew my mind. I learned all about the viral nature of memes… why many of them get shared thousands of times, and how they have the ability to build a ‘tribal’ culture. This is all regardless of your personality type or what type of marketing strategy you are currently using. The more I learned, the more fascinated I became. I think you might find this episode interesting, especially if you are looking for a simple, fun, and quick daily marketing strategy that has the potential to take your business to the next level (or become a stand alone income stream for you).

I’m a huge believer in following your intuition, your inner voice. I try to do this in all areas of my life, including my business… These days, there are a ton of distractions… between social media and being subscribed to unlimited email lists and podcasts… it’s easy to get lost in the sea of ‘comparisonitis’ and advice from ‘gurus’ and other successful marketers. The truth is, nobody knows what’s best for YOU, except you. And sometimes, the only way to really know what’s best for you to do next in your business or your life is to shut out the distractions so that you can listen to what’s in your own heart. “Listen to your instincts, your soul, your Guidance, and ignore the distractions. Ignore fear, ignore the doubts, ignore the naysayers, and step into each moment, trusting your inner wisdom.” Dr. Lee Jampolsky My friend and business partner, Paul Hutchings, is a living example of what it looks like to truly follow your inner voice. He has done some things that are against many of the ‘norms’ in the online marketing space. He is one of my biggest inspirations in this world. I’m hopeful that when you listen to this conversation with him, you will not only see why, but you will be opened up to a new perspective that you may not have considered before.

Recently, I did a Kambo ceremony. Kambo is technically a type of 'plant medicine'- although it is derived from a specific type of frog in the Amazon. In the last couple of weeks since my ceremony, I've gotten a lot of questions about Kambo regarding what it is used for, why I chose to do it, and what my experience has been like... so I decided to do a podcast episode about it to answer everything in one place. Enjoy the episode, and let me know if you have any questions. The episode and show notes can also be found on my website at https://amystarrallen.com/21

I had tears running down my face for the rest of the night… After the call, I received a message from Paul Hutchings, one of the cofounders of the Home Business Academy. Our conversation went like this: Paul: Excellent job tonight. I literally teared up several times. So inspired by you guys and how this has all come together. Me: I loved hearing from Nick… I’m hopeful that it will help a lot of people to be able to share the HBA and the 30 Minute Workday in a whole new way. I’m so proud to be here. Paul: It will for sure. Looking in his eyes and hearing his sincerity, makes you believe in a whole new way. Me: Still crying, in gratitude. Thank you for creating a home for all of us. You have no idea how grateful I am for you. Paul: And I for you Amy! For your trust, belief and leadership. We can be the change (and we are). I’m so unbelievably grateful to be surrounded by people like Nick Bramble and Paul Hutchings and Mike Hobbs, and to be a part of a community of heart centered people who are tired of the ‘biz op BS’ and are truly up to being the change. I want to share this replay with you. I am hopeful that it will help you see some things in a whole new way. I am hopeful that it will give you some perspective as to why I am moved to tears on a regular basis by what we are creating together here, and how this is truly different than ANYTHING you’ve ever seen or been a part of before.

Last week, I posted a video on TikTok that now, one week later has 105,800 views and 11,100 likes and 80 comments. What’s funny is that this video was something I didn’t really put any thought into. I volunteer at my daughter’s school store on Fridays, and I had only sold $1 worth of stuff that day, so I decided to make a TikTok… mostly because I was bored. I made a quick video (TikTok videos are typically 15 seconds long), posted it, and didn’t think much of it. But, by the time I got home, there were already thousands of views and hundreds of likes on my video. From there, the views and likes and comments kept growing so fast. The next day I went bowling with my daughter’s basketball team and the kids (and parents) were coming up to me talking about the video. They had all seen it and one of the kids was telling me that it had already been shared 40+ times, that many of her friends had shared it on their stories. The funny thing is, I’m really not sure why that video went viral. It was nothing special, in my opinion. And now, a week later, it’s still getting lots of views and likes and comments. It’s been a fun experience to watch it happen… and I’ve learned a lot from it, too. Here are some of the lessons I’ve learned from my viral TikTok video. Show notes: https://amystarrallen.com/19

The thought of taking risks brings up negative emotions for many/most of us. Deep down, we all fear failure, rejection, change, and uncertainty. When we think about taking a risk, our innate fight/flight response kicks in and we often get stopped dead in our tracks. BUT, unless we are willing to take risks in life (sometimes big ones), we will end up living in our comfort zones without ever really knowing what we are truly capable of or what is on the other side of the fear.

In this session of the Find Your Voice Rock Your Blog podcast, I provide a brief introduction of the podcast, my background, and what can be expected in future episodes. Welcome to the Find Your Voice- Rock Your Blog Podcast! I am so thrilled to be able to offer this podcast to you. I've been wanting to start a podcast for a while now, as I'm a huge podcast junkie myself. I know that podcasts are a great way to provide value in a way that can be digested while people are multitasking (driving, exercising, cleaning, etc). This is one of the things I love most about them. Because of this, I will be able to provide way more value for you in an easy-to-consume format.... and you'll be able to get your business and your blog up and running so much faster. :) Today's episode will be short and sweet. I just wanted to introduce myself, fill you in on a little bit of my story, tell you why I started this podcast, and let you know what you can expect in the episodes as we move forward.
