From Broke to $10 Million - Interview with Amy Porterfield - Episode 66

January 21, 2021

Several years ago, when I started The Sculpted Vegan, there was one specific investment I made that would forever change the course of my businesses:

 

Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy

 

Amy (who calls herself “The Queen of Baby Steps”, and you’ll hear why) has been a huge source of inspiration to me.

 

Last year, she reached the $10 million dollar turnover mark, has been featured in Forbes for breaking the glass ceiling, has sold more than 40,000 courses, has a mailing list of over a quarter of a million subscribers, and the list goes on! 


She is truly an incredible businesswoman, mentor, and friend.

 

I have been a champion of hers for many years, so you can imagine my delight when she agreed to be on the podcast!

(It’s really going to blow your socks off)

Listen to how she talks so candidly about:

 

  • Her successes AND failures (if you know me, you know I love failures!)
  • How increasing awareness surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement became the catalyst for positive changes in her business practices
  • How she got started in the industry and the moment she knew she wanted to be her own boss
  • 2 things she says that stop people from reaching true success
  • How she really feels about her husband
  • The biggest lesson she has learned in life

You’re going to absolutely love this podcast!

Quotes used: 

If people hate you and talk about you, that’s great! That means they will spread your name far and wide.

 

Just because you didn’t know, doesn’t mean you’re not responsible.

 

Lead with compassion. People are fighting battles we know nothing about.

 

Freedom lies in the capacity to pause between stimulus and response.

Get anything you want by learning the secrets of negotiation, with Chris Voss (ex FBI hostage negotiator) - Episode 65

Get anything you want by learning the secrets of negotiation, with Chris Voss (ex FBI hostage negotiator) - Episode 65

January 17, 2021

15 months ago I hated negotiating.

 

I hated asking for discounts and I hated haggling on price.  

 

I was an effective communicator, but I wasn’t an effective negotiator.  

 

I got nervous in negotiating situations because I wasn’t sure how to ask for what I wanted, without seeming demanding or unreasonable.  

 

That’s when I discovered Chris Voss.

 

Searching on Audible, I found Voss’ book ‘Never Split the Difference’.  An ex FBI negotiator, the book taught me negotiating skills that changed my life.

 

Armed with these new skills (and a completely new mindset around negotiating), it would not be an overstretch to say that my life has transformed.

 

I have used the skills Voss teaches to develop deeper relationships with my husband, kids, family and employees.

 

I have saved myself thousands of dollars, received complimentary upgrades on flights and in hotels and diverted crises in the business with staff and customers.

 

When Chris agreed to be a guest on my podcast, I jumped for joy.  

 

I saw that he was hosting a FREE 5 Day Negotiation Challenge through a private Facebook Group.

 

So I reached out to him on Instagram and offered to share it with my audience.

 

Ten minutes later we had exchanged cell phone numbers and set up a podcast interview at 7am UK time (this was 8pm on Saturday night).

 

Do yourself a favour and listen to this interview with master negotiator himself, Chris Voss.  

 

I know I am fangirling all over this right now, but with good reason.  I need you to trust me on this one. 

 

If you want to be successful in life, relationships or money making, you NEED to learn the secrets of tactical empathy and negotiation.

 

Listen to the interview and sign up for the challenge.  

 

And after you’ve listened, please leave me a comment and let me know your favourite part!  

 

Don’t forget to also follow Chris on Instagram.

 

See you inside the challenge!  It’s going to be epic.

How I Overcome This Fear To Sculpt And Shred My Body - Episode 64

How I Overcome This Fear To Sculpt And Shred My Body - Episode 64

January 13, 2021

Your beliefs around fear can either mobilize you or paralyze you. Many people think that I’m fearless, but that’s actually not the case. Plenty of things scare me! But throughout my childhood, I developed a postulate around fear that has enabled me to plow forward despite it.

This postulate (which you will hear about in this episode) has actually become the very thing that has caused me massive amounts of stress, anxiety, nausea, and physical pain in recent months surrounding my workout sessions.

Listen to what I realized has been going on with me lately and how one simple question to my trainer Mark has completely changed everything. 

You will hear:

  • How my back pain history led me down the path towards strength training
  • What my REAL problem was with my back, and how I made the pain disappear (it isn’t what you think)
  • How to identify real fear
  • A unique tip for facing fear head-on and learning how to respond to it
  • How to assess a situation rationally (and how this skill can be damaged when authority figures in a child’s life shout at them)
  • ...and so many more gold nuggets that will help you sculpt a shit-hot physique even if you’re afraid of what it might take to do it

“Do what you can do and not what you THINK you can do.”

Christmas, huh? It’s been a couple of weeks of chocolate piled high in the living room, and gorgeous treats spread out in the kitchen. You didn’t know whether to abstain and feel miserable, or dive in and feel guilty. Sucks, right? But what if I could transform your whole way of looking at food?

I used to have a very unhealthy attitude towards food, established (as most of these things are) when I was a child. For years, I was scared of getting fat. Terrified. But now I’m so much more relaxed about food, able to indulge when I want, and shred when I need to. So what triggered this change? How did I do it? Listen in to find out.

Does Vegan Food Have to be So Utterly Tasteless? (Interview with Sam Turnbull) - Episode 60

Does Vegan Food Have to be So Utterly Tasteless? (Interview with Sam Turnbull) - Episode 60

December 2, 2020

It’s always been my dream to show people that vegan food doesn’t have to be dull, boring, hard to cook, a bit crap. So when I discovered Sam Turnbull of “It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken” fame, I just HAD to team up with her. Sam works miracles in the kitchen, devising recipes with a minimum number of ingredients that you can find in any local supermarket. When I first used one of her recipes, it was so amazing I thought to myself: what kind of witchcraft is this? Couple of years later and together we’ve devised “The Ultimate Vegan Kitchen”: an online cooking course that takes you inside Sam’s kitchen so you too will learn how to conjure up magic. In our chat, Sam reveals her upbringing in a family of hunters and staunch meat eaters, and her journey in learning to make vegan food truly delicious.

My Mother Tried to Commit Suicide in Front of Me - This is How I Repaid Her - Interview with Leila Hormozi - Episode 59

November 25, 2020

I thought there wasn’t another me out there. But it seems that there is. This woman is undoubtedly my soul sister. Leila Hormozi is a phenomenally successful woman. She started a company called Gym Launch and now owns three 8-figure businesses! Not bad for somebody whose mother tried to commit suicide in front of her when Leila was still a teenager. But instead of being broken by her tumultuous upbringing, Leila used it to become strong. She pushed past the guys at the gym to build her body, and studied hard to develop her mind. The results speak for themselves. It also turns out that both of us have a liking for telling it like it is, so let’s get to it.

How Learning Projection Helped Me to Build a World Class Team - Episode 58

November 19, 2020

You know me by now. What the podcast is about is not only what the podcast is about - it’s always about something more. When I first learned about the psychology of “projection” it slapped me in the face like a 150mph tennis serve from Roger Federer. The idea intrigued me so much that I had to dive in deep. And I’m glad I did, because since then it has transformed the way I look at other people. Whether it’s hiring new members of a team, or just meeting new people with whom you’re thinking of starting a new relationship, this insight into the human psyche pays dividends in so many ways. On today’s show I’m going to tell you about the times in my life where projection has played a pivotal role in crucial decisions I’ve had to make about people.
