I was introduced to Pratima Aravabhoomi’s work when I received a gift in the mail (in the actual mail, not email - there’s a difference!) from her company Craft Street Design.

It was a piece of wall art with a quote by Francis of Assissi.

The quote >>

“Start by doing what’s necessary. Then do what’s possible. Suddenly you’re doing the impossible.”

I’m pumped to share my chat with Pratima with you.

Not only do we dive into how Pratima launched her business, we explore her childhood in India, her move to the American South and arranged marriage, her taboo divorce, not fitting in at Apple, and so much more!

Other hot topics we dive into:

  • Pinterist ads
  • Facebook ads
  • Influencer marketing
  • Email marketing
  • Coming up with new product ideas

In today’s distracted, high-tech world, I love to stay grounded by touching “real things” and Pratima’s work really speaks to me. Spend a little time getting present with us. I know you will be inspired.

About Our Guest

Can a book really change your life?

This episode will have you believing YES.

You can imagine my delight when I learned that my book “Get Gutsy” played a big role in Erica Gellerman’s gutsy move to release her “successful” corporate executive life (Procter & Gamble and Amazon to be specific!) to  embrace entrepreneurship.

Erica had a panic attack one day during work and simply knew something had to give. Her life was at stake.

She literally read my book on a plane as she was contemplating what the heck she was doing with her life.

Her question she pondered >> “What do I want?”

With an MBA from Duke and lots of student loans to boot, she had her back against the wall to figure out what move she’d make next.

Her story will floor you.

It’s about worth, women, meaningful careers, making money, and what she learned from playing on the boys’ water polo team in high school (as the only girl).

And you’ll flip when you hear her story about landing her first client in London, the wife of a Royal! It’s hilarious and oh, so bold (a potent combo).

About Our Guest

Having spent 10 years honing her skills with great companies (PwC, P&G, Amazon), she’s now helping other women transition into careers they love, gain the confidence to speak up and ask for more, and see the value in their work.

I’ve known Nathalie Lussier for several years. I followed her online for a bit, then eventually got to know her in a group where we were both members.

What I’ve felt about her from the beginning >> she’s SMART. Super smart.

And she’s also very gutsy. She bets on herself and has been doing this from the beginning of her career when she declined a job offer from Wall Street straight out of college to start her own business instead.

It’s been quite an evolution and ride for her in business. And we go DEEP on this episode because ya’ll know that’s how we roll on Get Gutsy.

Some sparkly gems you’re going to love:

  • How to know if your path is right for you (and how to pivot quickly if you go off course)
  • How she determined what roles new team members could handle to make space for her first baby
  • The mindset she had to embrace to be ok with supporting full-time employees
  • The magic word that makes for smooth sailing with her husband who is also her business partner
  • The power of pop-ups on your website to increase conversions by a HUGE percentage
  • Why membership sites matter
  • Why you need to use ideas before they expire
  • Who you are writing for when you craft your messages (this may surprise you!)

 

Dive in.

Why can it be so hard to make positive changes in your life?

What’s the secret to creating LASTING change?

Are our beliefs to blame when we feel stuck?

Shelley Davidescu and I swim around in all things CHANGE during our compelling conversation on today’s show. She reveals a powerful 4-step process to create change in your life, and explains why change is so scary and why it may require a mourning period.

Shelley, who has both an online coaching business and a therapy practice, shares how she moves between the modalities, and what all of her clients have in common. She also explains how our belief systems and identities can create major blocks and how to break free.

Some of my favorite nuggets from this episode >>

 

  • How to deliberately craft your life
  • We are always in relationship
  • We MUST let go of things to create change
  • What feels SAFE doesn’t get you to your desired outcome
  • You must commit to your progress + doing the work
