LER002: The Profit – A. Stein Meats; Season 2, Episode 2
This conversation was anticipated and it did not disappoint. I was joined by Cynthia W. and Julian Gravesande as we discussed The Profit episode. This was episode 2, in season 2, A. Stein Meats. CNBC in my humble opinion should make this its headline show. The quality of information we discern as entrepreneurs from the lessons taught on the show are outstanding. And that's without Marcus even sitting down to break down the information! Yessss...that's how to do it! I felt sorry for these two business owners. For some reason they just couldn't get it together. From having a general manager who wasn't measuring the product to the fact that the bookkeeper had to call Marcus in because she suspected the business was going down the tank. It was eye-opening. You have to keep an eye on the numbers or even the most ambitious business will fail. Marcus ended up stepping in and getting a surprise. Check out the episode and chime in with the comments. The next live Lady Entrepreneur Roundtable discussing episode 3, season 2 will be on February 2 at 8pm EST. Should you want to be a part of the roundtable discussion as a guest, click >>>here

LER001: The Profit – Athans Motors; Season 2, Episode 1
It's Day 12 of the #30DaysofBranding and I wanted to bring you something special. It's still a video and you get to watch us live but you'll also be able to listen. Here on the Lady Entrepreneur Podcast, I have started an incredible series with entrepreneurs that are building brands right alongside of us. I wanted to centralize our focus on a show that I believe is making us see the dysfunction in other peoples' brands and shining the light on our own as well. The Profit on CNBC. It's a relatively new show, only in its second season and Marcus Lemonis is the investor that helps companies on the brink of ruin to revamp and restructure their lives. His mantra is People. Process. Product. and it works. He make lots and lots of money but it doesn't seem to be about the money for him, it is also about the people and how well they're treated. It's also about how much he wants to help a failing business see the errors and correct them so they can hire and employ their people well. I like that about the show. Join us each Monday in February at 8p EST on LadyEntrepreneursWin.com to watch us live. Get in discussion with us in the private Facebook group.

BMS002: Be the Leader & Not the Marching Brand
Follow the leader has never been a game I played well. I've always been a leader and I have always had a tribe of Soulphisticates (thank God) banging the drum of positivity and prosperous moves right along with me. All of my Soulphisticates are leaders, so that means you are too. Leaders lead. That's why it is one of the first components of my Soulphisticated brand. It's also what I want to talk to you about today. Being a leader in your niche allows you to command what you want in pricing, in services and when developing a community. How? Because a leader knows: Their brand is not just visual, it's also vision based Their brand is not only vision based but they have action steps to actualize the vision Their brand is only as good as the leader and who they surround themselves with each day The mission is just the beginning and they have to show up, do the work and seal the deals they need to make in order to be a financial success and serve the people they want to serve from their overflow and not from their cup. Innovation is the bread of life. Being different for difference sake is not productive. But being innovative in the way things are done and how you make people feel about what you do is everything. Be the unicorn in your brand. Spray glitter and personality on the world. Be unique with the way you actualize and innovate. Be the leader and not the marching brand. Check out the video and the Lady Entrepreneur Podcast. Join us on the Twitter Chat on Thursday at 8pm EST.

LE020: On a Scale of Zero to Obama Where is Your Confidence?
"Karen Arrington is an empowerment and career design coach for african american women. She made this decision because it was what God called her to do, I had an obligation to my own happiness and it was necessary. I think many times we become complacent whether it be in jobs or careers or certain aspects of our lives and I was sort of forced into it. I was doing an event, an international event and it was so powerful, I found myself writing my resignation letter for my good government job. And it took me probably an hour to actually hit the send button. I had an opportunity to stay in the country for a month longer or go back to my job. On the one hand it was easy to make that decision but on the other hand it was scary. I had all this job security in the US. But I felt I had to follow my heart and what was feeding my soul and I haven't looked back since. " - Karen Arrington On a Scale of zero to Obama, where is your confidence? Karen Arrington challenges us all to live our lives soulfully and feed our souls with what makes us great. Check out the interview with this outstanding Lady Entrepreneur.
