About 18 months ago, I was having a conversation with a wise mentor of mine about the vision I had for my company and how I saw our position in the world. It was big, exciting, and I had confidence and trusted myself, but I kept butting up against a ceiling in terms of my own ability.

 

This is when my mentor said, “Eleanor, unlocking the next level of your vision isn’t about what you do. It’s about becoming the woman who is capable of having those things.” That conversation sparked a quest inside me to do an even deeper level of personal development work in order to bring my vision to life.

Personal development is a journey that never stops, and I realized the inner work I needed to do to become that woman, I needed to do a different type of inner work. I needed to take my good emotional resilience skills and make them even greater. And if you want to do the same, one thing you’ll need to do is balance great insight with listening to yourself.

 

So, in today’s podcast, I’m introducing you to a powerful creative, artistic, inspiring voice in the field of personal development: Tina Lifford. Tina is an author, a successful actress, and the founder of the Inner Fitness Project, and she’s a queen whose voice, leadership, and ideas have always inspired me, and she’s here to inspire you as well.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The emotional resilience required to be a visionary CEO.
  • The most important inner fitness skills we need to build up.
  • How we lie to ourselves by believing we need to have all the answers in order to do something successfully.

As women founders and entrepreneurs, we’ve been fed a lot of advice about the power of staying open-minded. We’re told to stay open to external feedback, ways of doing things, and challenges that come our way. Being a good leader, we’re told, means staying open.

 

I’ve spent the first part of my life, as I’m sure you have, honing my skills on openness. It’s one of my core values, and the periods in my business and personal development where I’ve been completely open to ideas and stimulus from other people have served me extremely well.

 

Keep reading

 

But what I’ve discovered of late is that there is power in intentionally closing down and being non-receptive. The notion of closing down gets a bad rap, and while there’s definitely a time and place for being open, purposefully choosing to be non-receptive is more valuable than you think, and I’m showing you why.

 

If you often find yourself overwhelmed or distracted to the point where you can’t hear yourself think, or you identify as a sensitive person and you’re ready to find a new way to protect your energy and creativity, learning the skill of being non-receptive is key. On this episode, I’m showing you what I’ve come to realize about the power of being non-receptive, and my top strategies for practicing this.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • How being open-minded can serve us well at the beginning of our business journey.
  • Why I believe the advice given to women about staying open is stupid 75% of the time.
  • What I’ve come to realize about the power of being non-receptive.
  • How I’ve learned to consciously hone my skill of being non-receptive.
  • Why giving ourselves permission to be non-receptive is so valuable.
  • My strategies for purposefully being non-receptive.

Alex has brought a woman’s voice to the field of negotiation, and she’s here to share how she built her super-successful organic business, her insights on team-building, how she challenges herself and her business, and the unwitting ways in which we play small without realizing.

This week on the podcast, I’m rolling back one of my most significant episodes to date where I share my coaching philosophy. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a much clearer idea of how to apply my teachings to a deeper context and how they relate to your own business.

 

Many of you listening sell knowledge and transformation through your expertise, whether it’s as a coach, consultant, author, or podcaster. And one thing I often see in these areas is entrepreneurs rushing into packaging and marketing something just so they can get it out into the world as fast as possible. However, this never produces the most important result your business needs: maximum value for your clients. This is where your philosophy comes into play.

My hope here is to help you discover the core philosophies that underpin your own offers and what you’re putting out into the world. This work will give you the kind of powerful grounding that allows you to grow and show up from a place of alignment, authenticity, and purpose in your business.

 

Tune in this week as I walk you through what a coaching philosophy is and the two pillars of my coaching philosophy for women entrepreneurs. I’m sharing why having an outlined philosophy is so important, and how to start getting clear on what yours might be.

 

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

 

  • The importance of getting clear on your business’s promised land.
  • What a jewel business is and how building one will transform how you grow.
  • Why growing a business without a clear philosophy never leads to aligned results.
  • The difference between philosophy, values, and strategy.
  • My personal coaching philosophy and how it links to my broader work.
  • Where to start with in building self-efficacy and confidence in your abilities as an entrepreneur.

In today’s episode, we’re exploring one of the most powerful forces driving the global economy: women buyers. Whether you sell B2B, B2C, high-end furniture, software as a service, life coaching, or books, the chances are that women are often making the decision to buy from you or not.

Around the fall of last year, I started thinking more deeply about how I was using my time and if there were better ways to spend it. The kind of leader I wanted to be was one who could serve her mission, team, and community at the highest level, but my current calendar didn’t reflect that.

To show up as the energized and connected leader I wanted to be, I needed to make some shifts to how I was spending and scheduling my time. I know so many of you are feeling drained, overwhelmed, or exhausted by your calendars, and I can totally relate.

There’s no doubt that growing a business is one of the most epic personal and professional development journeys you can take in life.

As entrepreneurs, we’re raised in a culture that says more is better. You need to hustle and grind your way to the top. But if you’ve been listening to this podcast for any length of time, you know that I am not about that life.

There is definitely a time and place for us to get our hands dirty and work hard. It’s when that level of intense work becomes the norm that we become numb to our pain and the things that bother us.

Our culture tells us from an early age what working with other women and for other women will be like. There can be jealousy, competition, alienation, and more, so beware.

This is called female rivalry, and it impacts women entrepreneurs too. But female rivalry is complex. It’s hard to put your finger on how it shows up because it’s subtle. Luckily, my guest today specializes in this topic and helping women overcome it.

I’ve been talking a lot on the podcast about feminine energy and the role it plays in wealth creation and business building. For so long, women entrepreneurs have played by the same rules as our male counterparts, unknowingly denying this tremendous power in each of us to lead, manage, and generate wealth. 

My guest today is the epitome of embracing feminine energy and using it to grow a massive 8-figure business. Michelle Bosch is a badass entrepreneur, investor, mom, and proud first generation immigrant. Together with her husband, Michelle created The Land Profit Generator Program to help others grow their generational wealth through land investing.

While she still has a strong ability to analyze numbers in a business, she also shows up with immense compassion. Today, her journey includes making time and space for her intuition, for flow, and for her feminine energy. 

In this episode, Michelle and I talk about the power of shifting from a transactional mindset in business to a more transformational one. Michelle shares her story of immigrating from Honduras and how her late father’s investment paved the way for her career in investing. KPIs are always important, but as you’ll hear today, taking quantum leaps internally is just as important for building wealth.

Today on the Power + Presence + Position Podcast:

  • An example of how harmonious growth can yield the same results as forced growth.
  • 3 quantum leaps Michelle took to build tremendous wealth.
  • How Michelle created and grew her passive income.
