003: Maybe it’s YOU… What REALLY Holds Us Back In Our Business, featuring DebbieDooodah

Oh friends, I wish every podcast episode I record could be this awesome.  This 2-part series was recorded at our big launch party on March 8, 2018, taped in front of a LIVE studio audience in Nottingham, England at The Simplifiers offices! That took courage beyond belief and really stepping out in faith that everything would work out fine.

But why is it so HARD for many female entrepreneurs (like myself, at times) to be in the spotlight of our own businesses?

In this series, social media marketing maven, Debbie Clarke of debbiedooodah and Amy Phipps of Women Who Create UK have a heart-to-heart conversation about what holds women back when marketing themselves and their businesses online.  And how to simply take action and change that.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why comparing yourself to others is not serving you
  • By holding back, you’re not giving someone who needs you the opportunity to find you
  • What the heck is an “ambivert”?
  • Mary compares social media in the United States to those in the UK
  • Stories of being unapologetically  “all you”
  • Nasty people and their nasty mean comments and when its best to put your blinders on and just talk to one person
  • Tips to help you step into the spotlight and be the face of your brand
  • How changing the WE to YOU or I helps you grow your business
  • Learn about Debbie’s “Magic Book” where she is able to manifest things into her life
  • Why you MUST get on the Pinterest Train
