55. 3 Ways to Know If You Need to Take a Break from Self-Reflection (So You Can Do THIS Instead!)
I often have my clients journal in order to provide more opportunities for self-reflection, because the best way to improve your mindset is to pay attention to it. So often we go through life ignoring our thoughts or just letting them take up space without really thinking about why we’re thinking them. But the truth is, when you spend a lot of time on self-reflection, journaling, paying attention to your thoughts, working on mindset… you can get sucked into a situation where you don’t actually DO anything. It can prevent you from actually TRYING and taking action. Sometimes the best way to get inspired and improve your mindset is to interact with others, network, get conversations going, work with clients… remember my disagreement with Yoda I’ve mentioned before? There IS the option to try, and I want to talk today about making sure that you also incorporate that action into your CEO habits. So if you’ve been spending a lot of time thinking, journaling, diving deep into mindset blocks, money blocks, reading books on manifesting, trying to figure out your purpose as an entrepreneur… whew, then this episode is for you.

53. The Quicksand Pit of Doom that Most Entrepreneurs Fall Into
This week I want to talk about a common mindset quicksand pit that many entrepreneurs find themselves falling into, including myself sometimes. It’s that feeling of “why isn’t this [fill in the blank] working for me?” That causes the quicksand to start to take you in. Why isn’t my post getting any likes? Why isn’t anyone booking calls with me? What am I doing wrong? Why does the algorithm hate me? Why am I not getting the success I want? Why am I still in the same place now that I was in last year? These are all thoughts you may have had before, or maybe you’re having them now. And living in these thoughts can really start to make you sink deeper and deeper into not getting anywhere. That’s why I call it the quicksand pit of doom. If you live in these thoughts, your business is doomed. Straight. Up.

52. You Need to Stop Limiting Yourself, Friend!
I started my first business in 2010. Over the years, my business didn’t grow but the intensity of my work did. It was like opposite lines moving on a chart. One plummeted while the other skyrocketed. And it wasn’t going the way I wanted it to. I used to stay up late every night and work on my business. I used to take calls and record podcasts starting at 7pm after the baby went down, which was a terrible idea. I was missing out on a lot—mostly sleep, and time with my husband. And I wasn’t gaining much financial value from it at all. Now that I don’t work in the evening anymore, I am able to do more relaxing things, like watching Bridgerton and knitting… and that’s what I want to talk about today. Knitting.

49. What You Really Need to Know About Podcasting

If you get stuck on the nitty gritty things—like your microphone or your aesthetics or whether you should sound perfect and not ever say “umm”—then you’re missing out on the main point altogether. So today I am sharing 5 key points you need to know about your podcast, ideally before you start it.

47. To Self-Promote, You Need to Be Brave
Today is all about being brave in self-promotion. It’s not a simple “check” off of your To Do list to be brave. Courage is an ongoing, forever process that gets more challenging as you go through it. The more you take brave steps, the bigger the steps get that you should take. With each step, you grow and you gain wisdom. But each step forward in braveness is a step away from simplicity. In this episode, I'm sharing three suggestions for how to practice being brave online. Show notes are available here: http://www.megan-kuhar.com/notes/to-self-promote-you-need-to-be-brave

46. Self-Improvement and Personal Development Makes You a Better Entrepreneur
Never stop growing. That is so important to me. And as I get deeper and deeper into entrepreneurship, I can see that that philosophy doesn’t always align with my field. In fact, “never stop growing” more accurately applies to business for entrepreneurs and not to personal development. Many are more concerned with making more powerful connections, making more sales, making more money, and equate “growing” to increasing their reach and revenue. Well, that’s not me. That’s why in today’s episode, I’m talking about why I believe personal development is one of the most important pieces to the entrepreneurial puzzle.

45. Why Celebrating Your Losses Helps You Get More Wins
Today I want to talk about celebrating your losses. It seems counterintuitive, but it’s something I have recently started doing for myself and for my clients. Have you ever gotten some bummer news, like a client is dropping you, or a student is changing teachers, or a proposal or audition was rejected? Sure you have. How often have you received that news and honestly thought to yourself, “Awesome, glad to know that stage is over. Moving on to something better!” If you have a hard time dealing with disappointment (don't we all sometimes!) then today's episode of Creative Brand Sessions is for you. And by the way, it's the 1 year anniversary of my show! Please leave me a review & rating to let me know you've been listening. Thanks for being here!
