The Business Values of SoulFull Living
One lesson I’ve learned and re-learned over the years is the importance of values. Especially in business, our values are what can ground us when wobbly, give us clarity for the future, and what we can always reconfigure to fit our ever-changing BEING. Our brand values – not to be confused with core values – are so important in fact, that I’ve dedicated this entire show to them. I’m offering you a quick look into what they can do for your business, what my 5 brand values are, and a free guide to your own values that’s usually only available to my clients. Looking to jump to a particular section? Here is what happens in this episode: 2:29 – An intro into what this business values thing is all about 3:12 – The gift I’ve made you around values exercises 12:46 – The difference between having a business that makes you money and one that your soul calls for 14:03 – My 5 values 32:00 – What do you value? Access your free values workbook I mention during the show.

BEING and DOING as a Way to Prosperity
I’ve been in business for 17 years. 17 years I’ve learned and unlearned and found a framework that’s worked for me. It’s one that allows me to keep myself balanced and sane and focused in my business. It’s one you can use too. It simply cultivates both the BEING and the DOING in our lives so we can really get to the secret sauce of what we have to offer this world. I’m giving you a quick rundown of this framework in this show, specifically I’ll share with you: 1:01 – An announcement of my NEW masterclass (March 13,2021 – contact me if you want in) 2:03 – A deep dive into this business model that I use, starting with the “BEING” side 8:02 – A look at the 4 pieces of the “DOING” side that creates a successful business 10:54 – How I want us to reclaim sales 16:17 – How you can go deeper into all of these ideas This is just the tip of the iceberg, but it’s been the greatest framework for myself and my clients – would love to know what insights it brought forth for you.

Lessons from an Accidental Psychedelic Trip
Let me start by saying – I’m not a big pot smoker, I’m not into drugs, this isn’t part of my usual routine. But I accidently had a trip. I won’t give away the whole story (it’s more fun to listen to it) but one of the amazing things about it (maybe the only amazing thing) was the amount of lessons I took from it. Now, I’m not saying a trip is the way to gain your lessons, but I’m thankful there were some from mine. Without giving too much away, here is what happens in this crazy episode: 3:11 – A little realistic history of my drug use to set the stage 4:43 – What happened (how I ended up on this trip) 5:17 – Lesson #1 from my trip 9:11 – Another big life lesson that was so obvious after this trip 10:46 – The biggest lesson that came through loud and clear 13:32 – What kept replaying in my head during the trip 14:12 – How this all applies to our lives This is a very different episode for me, I can’t believe I’ve shared it actually, but I have nothing to lose in being real and showing my heart to you, so here it is.

Are you a self-leader? What does that mean to you? For me, being a self-leader is what allows me to move from crappy to sassy.

I’m sharing how and what I know to be true about what self-leaders do in this podcast. Plus, I throw in a pretty great gardening analogy I think will stick with you.

Joyful Ambition – A Reclamation
How GOOD can you let it be? I was asked this poignant question a few years ago and it really helped me see that sometimes I was shutting out the good with the bad. I wasn’t allowing the good. The same has felt true for my own ambition. The truth is that my ambition has scared me. That’s no longer the case. Now, I see “joyful ambition” as a possibility for me – for all of us. I’m sharing how this is true and what’s required for it to happen on the podcast this week. Specifically in this episode, I’ll share with you: 0.55 – My word of the year (it chose me, I didn’t choose it) 1:57 – I ask you to consider, are you shutting down the *good* things along with the bad? 2:19 – How I felt about ambition before 3:26 – The definition of ambition and why I love it 5:50 – Some common phrases people say about ambition (these are fascinating!) 9:16 – 3 things required for joyful ambition I share all this in hopes of resparking your ambition if needed, and encouraging you to allow yourself to be the ambitious person you are.

Be an Aligned DOER in Your Business
Are you ready to take aligned action (aka be a DOER) in your business? If you are as ambitious as I think you are, I bet the answer is yes.

Specifically, I’ll share with you: 1:14: The “Be, Do, Have” framework 2:26: What I want us authentic and ambitious people to “take back” that will actually help us create in our life and work 4:15: How we can create more aligned ambition and achievement 6:41: What I do when I’m really committed 11:29: Some of the ways I sell in an aligned way 13:25: My prayer and hope for you for this new year 14:01 A question for you to ask to help you become a more aligned DOER You CAN be authentic and ambitious AND A DOER.

Permission to Do & BE Different in 2021
Let’s slow down for a moment together. As we come to the end of the year, I know many of us are racing to see 2020 end. I understand why we are doing this, but I want to also encourage you to pause for a moment and reflect. The truth is, January 1st can mean something big for us, or it doesn’t have to mean anything. We don’t know what may change in 2021. We can’t control most of it. We can, however, control how we slow down, what we give our attention to and think about, and who we want to be. Now is a great time to reflect on this year and who you want to BE in 2021. I’m even making it easier for you by giving you the 3 questions I’m reflecting on these days (including my fave leadership question!) on the podcast this week. Tune into this last episode of 2020 to give yourself the time to reflect (plus I’m dropping some big news about the show moving forward that you won’t want to miss) and if it feels right, share what pops up for you with me on Instagram or Facebook. See you in 2021. Love, As always, Authentic & Ambitious, Allison Crow PS – If you didn’t hear, I opened the doors to Soul-Full Success (my coaching community) yesterday!

What Open Heart, Slow Tango, Big Profit Really Meant
Did you pick a word of the year this year? I picked 3 (y’all know I’m not concise, why start now!). You may remember, they were : Open Heart Slow Tango Big Profit Of course, I thought I knew what those meant for me this year. Then 2020 happened. Now that I have actually experienced these words this year I have some reflections on them and what they really meant. Sharing this fun recap with you this week on the podcast and invite you to reflect back on your word of the year as well, did it mean what you thought it would?

Places Where Mainline Personal Development Fails
Some things in the personal development world drive me nuts. There are 3 things in particular that I’m just not down with. Not because I just have a pet peeve, but because they are promises that I KNOW lead to misery in my clients. They are ways of thinking and telling us to BE that just don’t jive with me. I’m gonna debunk these 3 places where I feel mainline personal development fails us today on the podcast. Take a listen to let me know if you’ve noticed these things too or if you’ve had negative experiences with them as well. Interested to hear your thoughts, message me on Instagram or Facebook with them. Love, As always, Authentic & Ambitious, Allison Crow PS: Part of the reason I’m sharing these thoughts with you today is because I am leaning IN to my ambitious and authentic self and she shares what’s on her mind.

Fall in Love with Life and Business Again
If you’re like me, you’re coming off a long weekend celebrating Thanksgiving in a way that’s not familiar. Maybe you created new traditions, or had another family Zoom, whatever it was, it probably wasn’t “normal’. You may be naturally reflecting back on this year as well, and as we look back it’s easy for us to remember how awful 2020 was. I want to remind you that it was wonderful too. Not to diminish the challenges and real shit that happened this year, but just to remember that there was BOTH/AND this year too. I say this even during a week where a music legend in my life and heart, Hal Katchum, passed away and I’m feeling sadness and loss around it. Even during times like these, we can remember to fall in love with our lives and businesses again. Even Hal’s music had this VERY message for me today as I listened to his music: “Let’s put aside the pain and all the sorrow Stop talking about the way things might-a been If we’d only throw our hearts into tomorrow Tonight we just might fall in love again.” -Hal Katchum It’s my hope that this week’s podcast episode will help you do this. Throw your heart into tomorrow and fall in love again. I hope that sharing the lessons I’m learning about regaining my mojo even when the world is topsy turvy will help you do the same. If you are ready to shift your energy, you can listen to it here or wherever you usually enjoy the show. I’ve already heard of quite a few “aha” moments that came to listeners of this episode, if you have one too, I’d love to know, share with me on Instagram or Facebook. Love, As always, Authentic & Ambitious, Allison Crow PS: Message me if you want to join me on Dec 12 for Mindset Church + Soul-Full 2021 Business Planning half day Workshop.

Authentic & Ambitious – Women of Range
I heard a question the other day that asked, “are you an ambitious leader or an authentic leader”? And something hit within me when I read that. They gave an either/or. You had to pick one. But I can’t pick one. I am a woman of range. We all are. We’re people of range. Not either/or. We can be ambitious AND tender. Heart-centered AND desire profit. Authentic AND driven. I want to touch on this subject with you on the podcast this week because I think we are all moving through challenges this year, many of which challenge who we are. And I want to remind you that you are both/and. Not either/or. If you think you could use a little reminder on this or just want to hear some of the insights I’m gathering around it, check out this week’s new episode and let me know what you think on Instagram or Facebook.

A Reminder to Just Breathe!
The best advice I can give you in any situation – and especially when you are feeling off – is to just breathe. The simple act of a breath connects your head and body to your spirit. We’ve been enduring a lot this year, mentally, socially, physically, and if you are like me, you are feeling the need for some DEEP breaths. This week, I want to invite you to actually take those deep breaths. I’m sharing a past podcast episode that encourages and helps you do just that. It’s a quick one, but it’s chill and relaxing and a reminder for you that you matter, that your mental health matters, and that you can slow down. Join me in acknowledging that life is crazy and sometimes we just need to breathe y’all. Love, Your Favorite Life Coach, Allison Crow

Be the Decider
I can’t believe I haven’t done today’s podcast before honestly. It’s all about being a decider. The decider in your biz, your life, your family, FOR you. I want to share this today because I see many of you suffering in drama, in money stuff, in not having the success you want in your biz, in things that honestly, you can control. Sometimes it’s easier to froth and not choose than to decide. That’s not where I want you to stay though. Instead, I want you to decide what you want from your life and biz and then decide what you are willing to do to create that. I’m going to walk you through this in this week’s show, join me in taking back control over whatever has you stuck. Love, Your Favorite Life Coach, Allison Crow

Inspired Action vs Habits as a Soul-Full CEO
How do you get work done in your business? I used to be the type of person that ONLY took inspired action. Meaning I waited until I felt a hit of inspo and then I moved fast, took risks, and liked the stimulation of the challenge. Inspired action was rewarding. It was great when I was building my biz. However, it gave me holes too – in my creativity, in my business, in my sustainability. Plus, sometimes life takes over (hello 2020) and you just aren’t inspired. Then what? As a Soul-Full CEO I’ve found it’s the mix of HABITS and inspired action that move me and my business forward. I want the same for you, so this week on the podcast I’m giving you the ways I balance these ways of working, questions I ask around them, and what it means for us as Soul-Full CEOs. Enjoy the episode here (and enjoy the realness of recording at home, you’ll know what I mean when you listen ). Love, Your Favorite Life Coach, Allison Crow
