We’ve been talking about the way you see your business and how your perspective affects the business’ success or lack there of. So on today's episode I want to go over the key word, actions, and thoughts that distinguishes an entrepreneur from a hobbyist. Now just so we’re clear, a Hobbyist is defined as: a person who regularly or occasionally engages in an activity as a pastime rather than as a profession. And an entrepreneur is defined as: a person who starts a business and is willing to risk loss in order to make money.

Episode #4 Mastering the Mindset of the Side Hustle
Episode 4 Mastering the Mindset of The Side Hustle Hi! Thanks for joining us Episode 4 of the Fix Your Crown podcast. On this episode, we're talking about Mastering the Mindset of the Side Hustle. Our focus scripture is Acts 18:1-4. This passage talks about Paul making tents, in order to support himself and to support his ministry. So, I wanted to talk about this because I know that many of you guys listening either want to start your own business, or may have already started your business. BUT, I do not believe that just because you want to start a business you need to just up and quit your job. So many people do this without effectively testing the profitability of their idea, without building a framework, without planing properly. So today episode is all around developing the right mindset so that you can have a successful side hustle. And that’s whether your going to have a side hustle forever, or for a few years, or even just a few months. Remember, success is 80% minute and 20% strategy. 1. How You View Your Full-Time Job So, The first area of your mindset you need to address is how you view your full-time job. You cannot view your full time job negatively. Even if you aren’t in the position that you want to be, making the money that you want to make, or you’re just simply unhappy with the job, you have to keep in mind that there is something for you to learn from this position. Paul is a great example for us of how we can allow every area of our lives be an example to those around us. 2. Your Motivations The second area I want to focus on is your motivations. Paul’s motivation for maintaining his income source while ministering full time was so that he could also contribute to the Christian community. So, a question that you have to ask yourself is what is your motivation for starting and running your business. 3. Discipline All successful entrepreneurs, whether full time or part time, have learned to discipline themselves. Entrepreneurs, especially side entrepreneurs, often see their businesses suffer because they don’t have anyone holding them accountable. If you’re the only person working in your business and you haven’t found the right accountability partner yet for your business, it can be difficult to hold yourself accountable to your goals- and keep doing the things you know you need to do. Paul knew how to discipline himself and he knew

Episode #3 Choosing the Right Accountability Partner for Success
An accountability partner is someone who will hold you accountable and help you fast track your success. You are most like the 5 people you spend the most time with, so you need to make sure that your accountability partner is the right person to help you take your goals to the next level. The wrong accountability partner could possibly cause you delay, or become stagnant in accomplishing your goals So on today’s episode of the Fix Your Crown podcast we’re going to talk about why you need an accountability partner and how having one helps your business, how to choose the right accountability partner, and what to do once you finally get one.— as in how do you actually hold each other accountable. 1. An accountability partner provides you with a sounding board for your ideas. So many of us suffer from lack of support from our friends and family, and ultimately that can lead to the death of a business. Faith comes by hearing, so whatever you hear constantly, you will ultimately begin to believe. This is why it is so important to elevate your circle of influence. 2. I know you’ve heard it said before that two heads are better than one and that is 100% true. by connecting with someone who is similar to you but thinks differently than you will see an increase in the speed at which you achieve because everything doesn’t always start from scratch. An accountability partner puts you slightly ahead by giving you another brain to work with. 3. This one only works for people like me who are competitive in nature. But every single time in my life that I’ve had an accountability partner or someone that I was going to compare goals or work with, I never wanted to be the one who didn’t have anything to show for it. Now, don’t go nuts, but a little friendly competition is ok, just remember this person is your friend and also you guys are helping each other. But if the idea of showing up to your meeting without anything to show for the last two weeks makes you absolutely sick to your stomach like me then the added competition of an accountability partner will do your goals some good. Choosing an Accountability Partner 1. So the number one thing I find that most people don’t really think about when selecting their accountability partner is whether or not this person is someone you actually want to make yourself accountable to. If you are not willing to “answer” t

Episode #2 Christ Centered Time Stewardship
Stewardship is not just about money, but all of the resources that you have. What’s the difference between time management and time stewardship? Time management is trying to control time, squeeze as much into as little time as you can. Time stewardship is about making the most of your time. Using the resource you’ve been given in the best possible way. The first aspect of this christ centered stewardship system is to prioritize all of your roles and responsibilities. From your list of priorities, you can then move on to creating a vision for your life. Lot’s of people will talk to you about balance, but I believe in harmony. I want to have harmony in every area of my life, not balance all of them because I feel like there are too many things to effectively balance them all. When I think about balance, I feel like I"m setting myself up for failure. Whatever your vision is for your life you, you need to get a clear picture of that in your mind. What does it look like at your home, your work, with your family, your business etc. Your vision is long term, but your goals should have a shorter time frame. a This aspect is extremely important because this is where lots of people get confused, especially with the popularity of vision boards nowadays. Your VISION is not something that will be manifested in the short term. Your vision board should be created with the timeline of at least 1 year in mind. But, you need to use your vision (and vision board) to create your goals. For example, if your vision includes you owning a home, and you need to improve your credit and save up for a down payment, you should create goals around doing that. When coaching, I do not allow my clients to make goals with a deadline of more than 90days. I also do not create goals for myself more than 90days out. Why? Because 90days is a timeframe that your mind can actually comprehend and fulfill. It gives me just enough time for my plan to not be devasted by a mistake but also not enough time that I don’t procrastinate. Now, my 90day goals include two main aspects: The end result or whatever I want to achieve, and measurable steps with scheduled dates and times. Planning for Your Goals Every week, I plan my week according to an hourly schedule. During this planning weekly session, I evaluate my goals, what I’ve achieved, what worked, and what didn’t work, etc. An

Episode #1 The Nehemiah Project: God's Provision for Your Vision
Episode #1- The Nehemiah Project: Provision for Your Vision (Faith Based Entrepreneurship) There are so many stories in the bible that hold vital lessons for Christian entrepreneurs but on this episode of the podcast I focus on one of my favorites: Nehemiah. The story of Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the wall is a favorite of mine because the book of Nehemiah gives us a very detailed account of this project. Also, Nehemiah’s cause was faith-based, so he provides a very unique perspective for many Christian women entrepreneurs to consider. Nehemiah's commitment to his business was based 100% on his faith in God. Faith-based businesses have such a different dynamic than other businesses, becasue the motivation is not usually based solely in profitability, but in purpose. The scripture reference for this episode is the Book of Nehemiah, chapters 1 & 2. Please read these chapters in their entirety when you can. To give you some background on the story, at this time, the Hebrew people had been taken into captivity and there were some who had escaped captivity and there were also some that were not taken that were still living in Jerusalem. And the walls of Jerusalem were broken down. Now Nehemiah was working in the palace as the king’s cupbearer and some men from Judah had come to visit, and he asked about Jerusalem and found out their condition that they were (v3) in great affliction and reproach and that the wall of Jerusalem was also broken down and burned with fire. And when Nehemiah heard these things he cried and was very upset and fasted for a few days. The following are 7 lessons you can take from these scriptures when it comes to God providing for the vision He has given you. Lesson 1: Your purpose comes from your pain Lesson 2: God will use relationships to provide your resources Lesson 3: Pray for Strategy in advance Lesson 4: Learn how to recognize your opportunities Lesson 5: There will be haters Lesson 6: Move in Silence Lesson 7: Inspire your team
