My Pet Peeve with the Personal Branding Industry.
I have a huge pet peeve with the personal branding industry. I've had it for years…. No one flipping knows what branding actually it's and nobody teaches you the importance of brand graphics and like why you even need them because there's this huge misconception going around in the online space with coaches and service providers. Most “Personal branding experts” have absolutely nothing to do with graphic design. If you’re not a graphic designer, don’t design websites or social graphics then you're not a personal branding expert. You are a personal marketing expert. Marketing and branding are two completely different things. But nobody talks about that. Because of this, there's a lot of confusion around what personal branding actually is. Today’s episode I do deep diving into: – The difference between Marketing and Branding. – Why do you need both. – What to focus on first. If you want more on these topics or anything else that I've discussed in this episode, leave me a review comment. Let me know your thoughts. Give me your feedback. I would love to hear from you. And that also helps me know what to produce more for you until next time. Stay amazing. For more free content, head to www.alicole.co/more an exclusive link for my listeners.

Why the 3 Cs aren’t working for you.
Clarity, Consistency and Community...Friend, I’m pretty sure you already have all three of these and they are not the issue. Building a personal brand isn’t as hard as it appears. Often I see business owners massively overthinking the entire process and not really doing anything. Like not taking any action, getting stuck in this cycle of adjusting and reworking the concept, copy or visuals of the paid offers but never really (testing) the offer on a real audience. I’ve seen countless business owners with incredible offers not finding the success they desire because the paid offer never sees the daylight. It’s stuck on the back end on google docs or word. Waiting for it all to be perfect, only the reason it’ll never feel perfect is because you don’t test it on any real humans. In today’s episode I take you on a ride through the limiting beliefs we tell ourselves, that I’ve told myself and offer some tangible bite sized solutions to each one. I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments/reviews about what you thought of this episode. Gimme all your feedback. It would be greatly appreciated! EPISODE TAKEAWAYS: Clarity — You already know what you want and who you want to serve. More clarity isn’t the answer. The thing holding you back is lack of CONFIDENCE in knowing that you already have all the clarity you need and it’s time to stop doubting, overthinking and over procrastinating. Just do. No thinking. Consistency — Showing up everyday on every platform isn’t going to pay your bills. Community — More followers or a larger community base won't change the fact that your focus isn’t where it needs to be. Instead of engaging on (new) accounts every day, serve the audience you already have. Go into your followers section on IG or FB and engage there. Those people follow you for a reason. Sure they may not have invested in you yet revenue wise, but maybe that’s because they need to know you genuinely care about them.

Mama Bear's on Her Soap Box
Today I'm tackling a mindset issue that I've struggle with personally that I see is still running rampant among my fellow mama's in business. I was so wrapped up in my head about all of the negative things. I had a mile long list of everything that wasn't happening for me. I had, a so many excuses I couldn't see the only thing that stood in my way was (me). To change anything, I had to be willing to change. Diving super deep and getting a little overly passionate about the topic of mindset, limiting beliefs and my deep rooted desire to help you out of the rut I personally dug myself out of. I'm getting on my soap box and going all Mama Bear on you. BUT it's all out the immense love I have for you and not wanting to leave you behind as I carve a path forward, I'm sharing my lows and high.

Kiddo’s, ADHD and Entrepreneurship OH MY with Featured Guest Jessica Jones
It was a blast to chat with Jessica. A little background on who she is: Jessica Jones is the CEO of Pivot to Growth. She has helped multiple clients go from start-up to 8 figures and works 1:1 with busy entrepreneurs and CEO's to help you Live Life On Your Terms, Gain Control, and Create the Work/Family Balance that you want and deserve. As an entrepreneur that has started, scaled, and sold several businesses while raising two active boys, rescue pups, and enjoying time with her husband of 20 years, she is skilled at helping busy and stuck entrepreneurs find the challenges that are holding them back and pivot to achieve the growth they are looking for in their home and their business. In her words: I definitely have the scaling a business as a mompreneur juggling act down pat. I'm the breadwinner in my household earning 99.999% of the family income and at 7 months pregnant with my 2nd child, my company went into chapter 7. I was very lucky to be offered several jobs within seconds of the announcements but that is one of the many pivots that brought me to be here with you today. I daily talk to my family, friends, and clients about 100 problems a day - basically, it's the idea that we all - every single person - has 100 problems a day. This is a concept I learned from a seminar with Dr. Bell at UNC and I made it part of my everyday mantra - but it is reality. We really do have 100 problems a day - it is what you choose to focus on as a problem that defines you. If you get bogged down by the minutia (because the world is designed to suck you into minutia - whether it's dumb or frustrating conversations in your Facebook feed, news, neighborhood gossip, road rage, lines at the store - you name it, there will be an endless number of meaningless things that can suck the life out of you - IF YOU LET IT!!!! You have a choice and when I find myself going into a rabbit hole, I simply say out loud...I'm not going to make this one of my 100 problems today. I focus on the high level key issues that are essential for my family and my business to thrive and I lOVE to help others gain this perspective and clarity. So, like you, I can have a plan laid out and one of my rescue pups gets out of the yard, one of my boys has a challenge at school or medical issue, or something goes haywire in my work - so this always means being ready to pivot when something comes up and being prepared to honor the needs of your life without disrupting the needs of your business and clients.

Why Brand Awareness is more important than ever!
BRAND AWARENESS is more important than ever in the online space. Not just because it’s way saturated, but more so, because it’s increasingly more challenging to find new leads on any given social media account. Building brand awareness does three things: 1] Provides the ability for your audience to recognize your business through your logo, color, symbol, or the visual content you use, 2] Your audience will have a clear understanding of what you want to be known for in business without needing to verbalize it 3] Your audience will be able to recall your business by association to a color or symbol… such as champagne or leopard print or a specific shade of red, Examples of this would be: - Coca Cola = logo, color red - Nike = swoosh symbol A great way to build some awareness is through a FREE signature lead magnet. This will not only achieve the above but also provide you with a way to capture lead in an evergreen format. Working for you even in your sleep! Join me next week to learn how to build a signature lead magnet for your business. 5 days of 20 minute classes jam packed with value. You’ll walk away with a strategic plan of action to diffuse the overwhelm and bring leads directly to your paid offers, ultimately resulting in: - Giving you a primary talking point for social captions - Freedom to plan ahead without losing momentum - Clarity on how to bring in leads with limited time in your day Register to catch the replays at www.alicole.co/workshopreplay Find more FREE content at www.alicole.co/more Connect with me on Instagram @alicole.co

Be Like Raylan
Being relatable can be a challenge, especially if you get hung up in your head over analyzing what you see on social media. Telling yourself one of two things... 1) I could never show up that way. What if people judged me? 2) I wish I had her ability to be perfect all the time. HA! first off, neither of those thought patterns are healthy and both will keep you from moving forward with any amount of speed. Instead be like Raylan, don't care what others think, march to your own drum beat and simply show up as yourself. If you're like me, you may have lost yourself a bit when you became a mom and that's OK. Happens to the best of us, but today's episode is all about diffusing those narratives that tell you not to show up as yourself. Hot mess an all. Key Takeaways: – What do you want to be known for? – People will connect with you by how they can relate to you as a human, not as a business service or product.

Are you giving too much away for free?
There’s a crap ton of (why) you should do something but very little (how) to implement or worse, you get hooked by the why, pay for the course and are left feeling like you waisted both time and money because the tutorial still didn’t tell you how to implement anything. It’s just more “whys” and surface level strategies. If you want to really go BIG, like if you are super serious about being a business owner and serving your audience then PLEASE! just focus on serving. By serving you’ll achieve two things. First, you’ll feel connected again to your audience and two, you’ll feel whole again. Reminded of why you felt called to serve in the first place. You want to know HOW to: – Give your audience insane value? – Turn your audience into raving fans? – Have your fans become life long customers? Then listen up! in today’s episode I go deep diving into all three of these areas with “take imperfect action NOW” strategies you can implement today! Key takeaways: – Focus on the audience you already have. – Create rinse & repeat templates for quick content turnaround. – Stop saying “I don’t have time” and make it happen! – small. One action at a time. Build from there.

How to Achieve that Work Life Balance with Featured Guest Cherylanne Skolnicki
Want to be a rock star at work and at home? I'm sitting down with Cherylanne Skolnicki who has the playbook. As an entrepreneur with a husband and three kids of her own, she knows exactly how it feels to have too much to do and not enough time to do it. It's exhausting, it's stressful, and it can be tempting to just give in to the chaos. Like most children of the 80s and 90s, Cherylanne grew up believing she could have it all. She started her first business while still in high school, and dreamed of one day becoming a CEO. After graduating from Cornell, she went to work for Procter & Gamble where she spent the next 15 years climbing the corporate ladder and managing a portfolio of well known consumer product brands (one had more than $1 billion in global sales). Despite her demanding work schedule, she still traveled, ran marathons, and volunteered like a boss. And then she had 3 children. All of a sudden, the unrelenting pace she was running at felt unsustainable. That’s when she knew she had to reorder her life so all the pieces would truly fit - including not just a thriving career and family life, but also a good night's sleep and some time to herself! It wasn't easy at first, but she finally discovered a set of practices that truly worked. That prompted her to found Brilliant Balance, and her playbook has helped thousands of professional women reclaim rock star status over the last decade. Her company, Brilliant Balance, offers work-life mentorship and coaching programs to help you have a fulfilling career, a thriving family life, and a strong sense of self. Cherylanne is a sought-after speaker and hosts the top-rated Brilliant Balance podcast. Her work has been featured in Thrive Global, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Women’s Day, and Cincy Chic. She appears on TV news shows as an expert on work life balance, productivity, and purpose. Cherylanne graduated from Cornell University in 1995. She holds an MBA from the Goizueta School of Management at Emory University. She is a member of the Female Founders Collective, one of Cincinnati’s 100 Wise Women, a Forty Under 40 Honoree, a happy wife, and a proud mom of three.

Have you ever wondered what exactly you need in a website? Today's episode is a LIVE Coaching call from my [free] Facebook community "The Tribe of Dreamers".

I'm tackling ALL the things one at a time. Spoiler, most of my answeres are not common or talked about so you'll want to maybe listen when you can take notes.

Shut up 😲 that did NOT just happen❗️
Looking back, I had no idea all that growth was possible in a short 12month timeframe not to mention during a global pandemic. Like how is that even a thing. Once upon a time, I wrote in my journal that I would become a successful business woman, an epic mom & wife AND that I would become an author. Now I may not have reached epic status, yet, but those other two things, well, they happened. In today’s episode, I want to tell you a story. It’s one I never thought I would tell in the first person narrative. This story is full of ups and downs but I tell it with the hope that it will inspire you. That you will hear my story and be empowered to boldly make your own success story a reality. I am proof that it’s possible. I know you can to.

Are You Running Your Business AS a Business?
I have a question for you, and it's not a popular question AND it's probably going to be uncomfortable, but I have to ask why are you in business, or rather, why did you become a business owner? Like why do you label yourself a business owner? The reason I ask this question, and I think it's a really, really important question, is because I've had a few conversations recently around the topic of being a business owner and a stay at home mom and I've noticed that the mindset around "stay-home-mom" with an online business, isn’t viewed as a legitimate thing. Most people view stay at home mom's with a business as you're not a business owner. You're a hobbyist. That's the whole mindset around women who are stay at home. Moms, you know, had kids first and then built a business, decided to go into business. And the issue I see is that it doesn't matter what other people say, right. You know, this, it's a fear. It's a limiting belief, all the things around that, you know, it really doesn't matter what the opinion of somebody else's. But the reason I ask you why you're in business is because I think that you have the same mindset. Like even though you call yourself a business owner, are you really a business owner or are you still running it as a hobby. In this episode, I get raw and honest about my own mindset and struggles with this topic. Diving deeper into the limiting beliefs around being Mom first and business owner second. Heres a snippet: [time stamp 07:03 - 09:12] …I was stuck in this spiral of a mindset as well. This circle, that’s getting me nowhere. After this last year and all of the things that I've been consuming, I learned that I needed to stop viewing my business as a hobby. I had to take it seriously. If I want my clients to take me seriously and serve to the best of my abilities, I need to take myself seriously … I used to say, if I had designed something, anything that I've designed, if you need it adjusted, I won't charge you for that. I've said that for years. And then I realized I wasn't getting anywhere because I was in this mindset of, well, I'm just going to serve, right. … But ended up happening was..... You'll have to listen to find out what happened ;) For more content head to alicole.co/more

The Secret to Showing UP as a Personal Brand NOT an Influencer
Are you barely showing up on social media because you don’t want to look like an influencer when you’re really a service provider? You know that you need to be on social media to generate new leads for your services but the idea of showing up as the hot mess you feel like you are 99% of the time is too much vulnerability, right?
