Episode 057: Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes: Habit Building Masterclass for the New Year

Episode 057: Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes: Habit Building Masterclass for the New Year

LISTEN NOW

What up, Squad!

Happy New Year!!!
If you are listening to this, you made it!

Our purpose is not postponed just because there is a pandemic. In fact, I would submit to you that our purpose is even more crucial at this time.

By now, y’all know I’m a strong believer that every day, every morning is a God-given chance to draw closer to our Zone of Proximal Greatness.

Last year, I hosted a Habit Board Party. This year, I decided, as a gift to my community that I would do it in the form of this podcast. So this is going to be a Habit-Building Masterclass y’all.

Y’all know my story.

After my mom passed away, I decided that I was going to walk in my purpose. I started listening to all these podcasts, bought all these courses… By looking at my life, you wouldn’t tell that I had these aspirations and dreams because nothing changed.

I was still snoozing, and a procrastinating hot mess.

I was consuming a lot of information, but I wasn’t implementing anything. I had a lot of dreams, goals, and desires, but my day-to-day existence was the same.

What I want for you is that we engage in habits that on a daily basis support the goals that we have. We are going to be honest with ourselves, and get deeper into how our good and bad habits serve us. 

I’m taking you step by step through this process and helping you start new habits to take you closer to your purpose in 2021 in this Masterclass.

Episode 056: Profiles in Purpose: My Q4 and 2020 Year in Review

Episode 056: Profiles in Purpose: My Q4 and 2020 Year in Review

LISTEN NOW

What up Squad!!! I’m so grateful to have you in my life.

You have kept me going this year, and that is not an exaggeration. There were moments I just wanted to throw in the towel, but when I remembered I have been called to serve you… I couldn’t!

Announcement: I’m reviewing my content and products for next year and I would love to hear from you what you think and where you’re at.  Sis, would you please do me a favor and take the Productive on Purpose™ Community Survey? I’m looking forward to serving y’all in the best possible way. 

Let’s get into it…

What a year! As always, I’m giving you ALL the tea.
Here at the Pop Squad, we are all about being real. Serving the good, the bad, and the uggggllyyy!

Building a business is hard!

When I think of Q4, the word that comes to mind first is traumatizing.
I explain why (download & listen to the podcast) – and I take full responsibility for the trauma. Some were out of my control and some of it was self-inflicted.

I’ve had huge wins this year hiring for my business and I’ve also learned huge lessons on choosing people. Some painful lessons are because I  see the potential in people and I want to give them chances to prove themselves, but unfortunately potential doesn’t get the work done.

Another huge win: The Push Through Procrastination™ 5-Day Challenge!!! Whoa!! Shout out to all of the amazing women who showed up and made the Challenge a success.

I’m so grateful and I’m amazed that I did everything that I set out to do in Q4. Did I achieve the impact that I hoped to? No, I didn’t. And that is where some of the grief comes in.

The lessons I’ve learned:

  • Changing quickly if something isn’t working for me.
  • Meeting y’all where you’re at. Sometime back, I made a change on my podcast and platform to focus on purpose and entrepreneurship. That was a mistake. And I appreciate the feedback I got from y’all. I need to meet you where you’re at.  I was trying to rapidly push you guys to where I want you to be instead of meeting you where you are, and that was wrong. I’m sorry about that.

I’m so excited to share with you this new episode. I wrote so many notes y’all. You can hear me turning my notebook pages and my pencil scribbling like crazy in the background!

Our Profiles in Purpose guest today is Denise Young. She is the Board Chair of SFJAZZ, one of the country’s premiere jazz presenters and a global leader in jazz education. Ms. Young brings experience and leadership that will help guide SFJAZZ’S digital transformation and continued excellence.

She built an impressive 20-year career at Apple, holding a variety of executive roles, including establishing the cultural experience in the Apple Stores and taking them to a 14 country global footprint. She then took on the Chief Human Resources role at Apple.

Episode 054: Bonus! Interview with P2P Student – Dr. Lisa Davis

Episode 054: Bonus! Interview with P2P Student – Dr. Lisa Davis

LISTEN NOW

Hey Squad,

I want to appreciate all of you who listen to my podcast every week.
I feel so blessed that I get to serve you in this way.

On today’s podcast, I had the privilege of catching up with Dr. Lisa Davis, M.D. who was a participant in Cycle 3 of my program, Procrastination to Purpose™, and I thought it would be great to share her story with you all in the podcast land!

Dr. Lisa Davis, M.D., is a family medicine physician and she has been doing clinical and academic medicine for 20 years. She is now transitioning into an entrepreneur. Her business will help people move from fear and avoidance to love and intention in the area of fitness and nutrition.

She did my Push Through Procrastination™ 5-Day Challenge and joined my Procrastination to Purpose™ Program because she felt she need to manage her transition from her full-time job into retirement and keep her progress flowing as fast.

I knew that I needed more. The 5-Day Challenge – outstanding!  But I, knowing myself, wanted to build on that momentum. I wanted to get more. I just was wanting more information about how to keep this Cavewoman from defeating me. And I knew that the value of what you had to offer just from the 5-Day course. I knew you were about the business. That it was going to be worth my time and my money. And it was going to be effective. So, yeah, I signed up right away. No hesitation. And you gave us a discount. But I would have paid whatever it was.
~ Dr. Lisa Davis

I am incredibly humbled that the program I created has such an impact on the people that take it. To add to the business and personal goals that most women come to the program with, the principles that I teach spill over to other areas of their lives.

I was so happy when Dr. Lisa said that she used the Push Through Principle™ that I teach to finally set up a meeting with her financial advisor and get to look at her money.

You can change your life, get productive, and start your own business even if you struggle with procrastination. Sign up for Procrastination to Purpose™ The doors close on Wed, December 23rd.

Our kickoff call will be on Mon, December 28th and we start the program on Wed, January 6th.

Episode 053: What is Really Stopping You From Showing Up and Serving

Episode 053: What is Really Stopping You From Showing Up and Serving

LISTEN NOW

What up SQUAD!!!!

Y’all can tell I’m excited from all them exclamation marks. I have had such an AMAZING, UNBELIEVABLE, IMPACTFUL, CRAZY, and PRODUCTIVE week during my  Push Through Procrastination™ 5-Day Challenge!

I can’t believe it! Close to 200 women signed up. The testimonies… I am so grateful. I am blown away, I am overjoyed.

Before we get into it, if you’re a high achieving woman but you know there’s that you’re NOT fully walking in your purpose

You have a way that you want to show up in this world and serve, but you don’t know where to start. Especially because you procrastinate… I want to help you.

I invite you to sign up for my upcoming Procrastination to Purpose™ Program.  The doors are NOW open and will close on Wednesday, December 23rd. You are my people and I know you, so don’t procrastinate and be scrambling to sign up on the last day.

Our kickoff call will be on Monday, December 28th and we start the program on Wednesday, January 6th.

So, let’s get into the real reason you are not showing up for yourself.

You don’t TRUST yourself.

Whaaaaat??!!! Yes Sis, your unconscious mind has learned over the YEARS that you don’t keep your promises to yourself. Y’all know my story. I would snooze, scramble to get to work, be unproductive by scrolling social media, thrive on deadlines – you know how we procrastinators love deadlines and break promises to others.

You’re NOT a bad person. You’re NOT deficient in some way. You DON’T have a character flaw issue. You are a human being that has an unconscious mind that is setting you up.

Your unconscious mind, which we call our inner Cavewoman, is trying to protect you from failure. And so, we use procrastination as a crutch to prevent us from feeling the hurt and rejection that comes from failing.

My take-aways from this episode:

  • Your relationship with yourself (which is unconscious) is the most impactful relationship of all.
  • You cannot walk in your purpose with a trail of broken promises.
  • Affirmations are empty. They only work when there’s evidence of actions paired with the affirming words.
