When you launch a new business, become a sales person, or join a direct sales company there is usually ample training giving to understanding and selling your product or services.

Starting the day with a little education and a lot of support can be the diffe ...

Perfectionism pretends to be noble. It pretends to help you improve and grow. But in reality, it creates crippling self-doubt and leaves you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and stuck. Instead of helping you grow, perfectionism limits your potential and keeps you small. Perfectionism hits women especially hard. Throw a profession, some children, and religion into the mix and then it really kicks into high gear. The Perfectionist Professional Woman podcast is for high-achieving working mothers w ...

The hope is that these untold stories of inner struggles from 'successful' individuals will provide interesting takeaways f ...

The Next Generation Wellness Podcast is dedicated to unpacking the physical, mental, emotional and social stress triggers that stack together and make that so.

This episode is part two of a three-part series on the Lies of Perfectionism. Do you identify as a perfectionist? Do you think perfectionism helps you do better work and be a better person? Perfectionism pretends to be noble. It pretends to help you improve and grow. But for a lot of high-achieving women, perfectionism isn't helpful. For a lot of h…
 
When I desperately needed to see queer representation, I looked to quality queer media to find it. In this solo episode, I talk about some of the awesome queer movies and TV shows I've been enjoying over the last year and a half or so. You can find the show notes and a full transcript of this episode at https://shohrehdavoodi.com/118.…
 
There's a lot of truth to the old adage "Pride comes before a fall." However, there's even more truth to the idea that pride can prevent you from having success in the first place. Our ego can get us in a world of trouble when it comes to starting, growing, and maintaining a business. We are terrified of making mistakes and embarrassing ourselves. …
 
Running your own business or working in sales is an emotional rollercoaster like no other. One day you feel like you are on top of the world (usually after a big sale), the next a sale falls through and you hit rock bottom. Unfortunately, many have trouble climbing out of those emotional low places. In fact, many spiral even deeper into darkness wh…
 
Over 90% of the conversations we have each day are with ourselves. We talk to ourselves all the time. We even talk to ourselves when we are talking to other people. The trouble with that is that most of those conversations are negative. We tell ourselves we are not very good at things, that we'll never be successful, and the things we want are more…
 
If you take a moment to think about every outstanding achievement in the history of the world, you realize that none of them just happened. These all sprung from long strings of start and stops, numerous small successes and large failures, and near-constant struggles by the men and women credited with the achievement. The heroes that made those gre…

We talk a lot about how our fear and insecurities can often prevent us from doing the things we need to do to be successful. We convince ourselves that some of our dreams and goals will be forever out of our reach. When we do this, it becomes so easy to not even try. What's the point, after all, if we don't believe our goals are achievable. That's …
 
Social Media is a powerful force in today's world. If used correctly it can help almost any business owner or salesperson reach the world. All too often, however, it has the exact opposite effect on a business owner. Instead of being a force for growth, it can become a huge time-suck that stops work from getting down and a tremendous demotivator th…
 
One thing we realize as we get older is that time goes by very fast. It feels like, if you blink, another year is gone. Each of us has an average of about 41,000,000 minutes on this earth. That seems like a lot until you start thinking about how much we spent in school and how many minutes we would like to be able to spend in retirement. Take those…
 
Few people understand the dreams, aspirations, and frustrations of the Indian consumer better than my guest today. He's a columnist media critic and bestselling author. His popular weekly column, "City City Bang Bang" published in the Times of India, is an amazing mirror into the thinking of the middle-class Indian consumer. If you have not read it…
 
Over the next few days, we all get a chance to reacquaint ourselves with the idea of gratitude. Each November, on the last Thursday of the month, we all take time to recognize the things we are thankful for... usually while gathered around a table full of food. If we do it right and really take our gratitude seriously, we can often feel our stress …
 
What are you afraid of? Are those fears real or imagined? These are two questions you need to continually ask yourself when you are trying to grow a business or expand a sales career? Like it or not, it's our ability to overcome our internal fears that will ultimately determine whether we are successful. If we can't, those fears force bad decisions…
 
It's no secret that much of the history of marginalized groups has been obscured.

In this episode, Jermaine and I discussed historical events that rarely get taught in schools, whose stories get told a…

Do you have goals? I don't mean the kind of vague "I'd like to do.... someday" kind of statements everyone makes. I am talking about the hard-core "Here is what I am going to accomplish in 2022" kind of goal. Most people don't. They tell themselves over and over again that they need to, but when it comes time to actually write them out they freeze …
 
When you start your own business or go into direct sales no one warns you about the internal struggles that come with being your own boss. Self-doubt, fear, and indecision quickly consume you if you are not careful. As an employee, you have a boss often telling you what you have to do and when you have to do it. There's usually no room for that inn…
 
Have you ever found yourself thinking you’re not good enough, you don’t fit in, you’ll never be able to accomplish your goals, or that life shouldn’t be happening the way it is? Most of us have limiting and painful thoughts like those that we automatically accept as true and feel powerless to change. But what if you didn’t have to accept them? What…
 
Social media has changed the world. It's created amazing new ways for us to communicate and share ideas. It's opened up new marketing avenues so we can reach customers all over the world in whole new ways. However, with the good comes the bad. It's also created avenues of hate and anger that never existed before. Its addictive nature can easily con…
 
Are you easily distracted when you are trying to get some work done? Do you find yourself closely relating to the dog in the movie UP who completely loses focus when someone yells "Squirrel"? Lack of focus can be one of the biggest obstacles we face when trying to build our sales career or our businesses. The more repetitive, mundane, and detestabl…
 
Each of us is constantly at war in our own minds (good vs. bad, productive vs. lazy, confident vs. insecure, and brave vs. fearful). We cheer on the positive side of that battle, but all too often watch as the negative side wins out over and over again. Unfortunately, our ability to achieve the things we want out of life is entirely dependent on ou…
 
What do you intend to do today to drive your business and/or your life forward? Do you know exactly what you want to accomplish today? Many of us do have goals we hope to achieve. If pressed on what we were planning to do today to move toward those goals, we would give a very generic answer. We'd say something like, "I am going to do everything I c…
 
Good habits performed consistently create momentum that leads you to where you want to go. Whenever we start a new productive habit (reading, writing, cold-calling, practicing, etc.) we know that we have taken the first step toward success. However, it's not always easy for that first step to become a second step, and then a third, and a fourth, et…
 
Most of us have been told since the day we were born that failure is bad and something that we should avoid at all costs. Unfortunately, that belief often becomes so entrenched that it can paralyze our growth as a person and especially as an entrepreneur. The truth is that failure is an essential part of our professional evolution. Success requires…
 
When you are building your own business, it can seem like the entire world is trying to stop you from attaining the success you want. It can often feel that you are on an island all by yourself. Your families ad friends have no idea what you are going through and their "support" can often make matter worse. That's why most highly successful people …
 
Many of us believe strongly in what's right. Yet we struggle to speak up when needed. It can be standing up to a nasty coworker, having a difficult conversation with a loved one, or a broader spectrum of issues involving discrimination or injustice. While our inner voices rise up in protest, we often remain mute spectators as we succumb to lack of …

When you decide to branch and create your own business, it scares the heck out of those close to you. Often, they aren't entrepreneurial-minded and just can't see why you wouldn't take a nice safe job with benefits and two weeks vacation each year. Being your own boss just isn't right for everyone. Often your friends and family will inadvertently s…
 
Do you really believe you can be great? One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from Henry Ford when he said, "Whether you believe you can or you believe you can't, you are right". So many people think they can achieve something great, or perhaps believe it's possible for them. That's not the same as truly "believing" they can be great. Without…
 
All salespersons and entrepreneurs have one thing in common. We all hate cold-calling or at the very least hate making that first call. It usually gets better after three or four dials, but some bizarre combination of fear, self-doubt, lack of conviction, and imposter syndrome makes it very hard for us to pick up the phone.There are dozens of ways …
 
I once read that Larry Bird would get up every morning and take hundreds of jump shots in the gym all by himself before anyone else showed up for practice. It's not surprising then that when game time came he was easily able to knock down shot after shot and is recognized as one of the greatest of all time. He simply practiced himself to greatness.…
 
It's commonplace to see athletes warming up before a game. In fact, it would be very strange if we ever saw an elite-level basketball player show up at the gym right at tip-off and start playing. We would probably question their dedication and professionalism. We know that in order for an athlete to be at peak performance, they have to warm up. The…
 
Running your own business is rewarding and exciting, but it also can be the most emotionally draining thing you ever do. The same can be said if your livelihood comes from sales. Self-doubt, fear, and indecision can not only paralyze our business but can leave us an emotional wreck. To prevent burnout, you have to find ways to recharge yourself.Thi…
 
If you sell for a living or own your own business, you need to avoid burnout at all costs. That condition can bring everything you are trying to build to a screeching halt. Burnout is your mind's way of protecting itself from prolonged stress. One day you are freaking out trying to get everything done and the next you don't care whether it gets don…
 
What does it take to start a business and succeed as an entrepreneur? Building a successful company is a lot about the idea, the market, timing. But also about being able to sell, attract a great team, and most importantly, have the grit to handle inevitable adversity that comes along the way. The typical imagery that comes to mind these days is a …
 
How many times have you tried to start a new habit that just fell by the wayside after a few days. Perhaps, everything was going great, and then suddenly you reverted back to your own ways and felt like a total failure. It happens to all of us at some point or another. We then beat ourselves up for not having the strength to make the changes we wan…
 
We all have bad habits that stop us from reaching the level of success we want and having the lives we dream of. Some are huge like smoking and heavy drug use. Most, though, are just small things that we do that eat up large quantities of time that could be used to build our businesses. Regardless of the nature of those bad habits, they can feel ne…
 
All of us have this giant mountain of tasks that we need or want to do. Some are crucial to the success of our business and our lives. Others aren't. Some can be finished in a matter of moments while others take days. Not so coincidentally, the most frivolous tasks are often the ones that can be finished quickly. That make's them the low-hanging fr…
 
We are our own worst enemies when it comes to making real changes in our lives. However, it's not for the reasons you think. Most of us believe that it is a lack of willpower or motivation that stops us from creating the habits we need to be successful or from getting rid of our bad habits. Most of the time, that's simply not true. Change is hard! …
 
Time is something we're always talking about, trying to wrap our heads around, and proclaiming we don't have enough of, but I've never heard it spoken about in quite the way Ixchel Lunar does in this episode. Ixchel is a Decolonial Time Witch who helps people decolonize and reclaim their time so they can liberate their flow. We chatted about the di…
 
How many times have you wanted to make real positive change in your life and simply lacked the motivation to make it happen? Did you feel weak because you couldn't do what you really wanted to do? Did you beat yourself up for lacking the strength to build those new habits or take that decisive action. You shouldn't.In this episode, we find out that…
 
Our success or failure in life and in business is often determined by our habits. The good ones drive us forward; the bad ones hold us back. Getting rid of those bad habits can seem like an insurmountable task. Creating and sticking to new habits can be equally challenging.In this episode, you will learn two very simple habits that you can begin im…
 
We as human beings are woefully bad at prioritizing on the fly. If we suddenly have available time and must decide what we are going to do, most often we will do nothing that moves our business forward. Sad, but true. We get so overwhelmed by the items on our to-do list. We simply can't decide which one to do first and end up doing none of them. Ou…
 
Loss aversion is a very real thing that can halt the growth of your business in its tracks. The term refers to the natural tendency we all have to fear loss much more than we get excited about equivalent gains. Unfortunately, if you are an entrepreneur, this often causes you to make decisions that are not always in the best interest of your busines…
 
We all make many career moves. We change jobs because we don't like our bosses. We change to new roles, hoping for a better career path. We even switch to startups, as we read about unicorn riches. We do all of this because we believe these changes are part of the progress we envisioned for ourselves. But how much of this change is actually because…
 
We as human beings have a natural tendency to focus more on failures, losses, and incomplete tasks than we do on the times when things go right for us. It's unfortunate because such a focus often convinces us that the situation we are in is far worse than it actually is. When we feel like a failure and loser, we often act out the part and don't do …
 
With every job you've ever done in your life, there have been parts you love and parts that you hate. To get to enjoy the parts you love, you have to put up with some crap. It's tempting to believe that once you have your own business and are your own boss, the crap job days are over.Unfortunately, the world simply doesn't work that way. Success co…
 
When you first branch out on your own and decide to become your own boss, no one ever tells you about the paralyzing fear and self-doubt that you, as an entrepreneur, will face. When the buck stops with you and your decisions are gospel, the fear of being humiliated and/or making bad choices can be crippling.Once those fears take root, they can qui…
 
Before you can reach the level of success you crave, you have to know exactly what it is that is driving you to success.
