  • Bibbidi Bobbidi Book Launch Vibes: BTS of Jadah's Prep and Process (+ a giveaway!) [NE 082]

    28/02/2023 Duração: 01h04min

    I loved this convo so much that I had to bring it directly to you. (It started on Jadah Sellner's Lead with Love podcast, just like our last episode!) In this one, we bottle Jadah's pre-launch feels in the weeks before her best-selling book She Builds officially launched into bookstores, homes, and earbuds. I asked all my nosy Qs so we can benefit when it's our turn to jump! Jadah shares get nitty gritty details on what made her audiobook recording process a huge success, plus we jam on what it was like collaborating in our unofficial "Bibbidi Bobbidi Book Retreat" at Disneyland for her birthday in May 2022. (Tune in for details, especially if you'd love to fly me out to a 5* or Disney Resort, lux National Park lodge to play the role of Fairy Doc Mother ;)). We also talk hair - highlights, lowlights, and giggle a lot. Probably sounds a bit like an SNL skit at times -  the ones with the ladies and their microphones. Bottom line here: ( love this book so much and would love to share it with you. If you

  • BFFs and Bookity Books: Creative Cocoon Life with Jadah Sellner [NE 081]

    30/11/2021

    In this super-special book mode episode, my Polly Pocket BFF* Jadah Sellner and I invite you behind the scenes to join us for a convo on pretty much ALL THE THINGS. (*we were born in the 80s and basically audio livestream our days to each other via the Voxer app, hence Polly Pocket) If you haven't met her yet, Jadah's the star of NE episode SIX and I've been on her Lead with Love podcast a couple times too. She's an author, speaker, coach, and one of my favorite humans. In this dual-podcast convo (recorded days after our most recent friend trip to Austin and Waco!), we cover a lot of ground, including but not limited to: the path to traditional book deals (she's working on her second traditionally published book now!) practices for mindful + intuitive decision-making the power of friends who KNOW you managing fam expectations around biz + work time maintaining stamina while working on manuscript(s) #pomqueens: the power of the pomodoro technique navigating life, loss, AND time-sensitive creative projects

  • Profitable Priorities [NE 080]

    18/10/2021

    Since I am and work with a lot of humans who care about building businesses that fit into LIFE (vs. the other way around), this concept comes up a lot in conversations with my clients, my friends, mySELF. I'm anchoring this idea here so we have it when we’re feeling a bit aimless and sneaky, avoiding the work that we KNOW will lead to the results we deeply desire. It's time we talk profitable priorities. (*Profitable prios* for obnoxiously short. Check your local GIF library for stickers.) It’s not so much about the time we have in a given day. It’s not even just about the energy. It’s about confidently knowing that, even if we only have a teeny pocket of time to dedicate to moving our businesses forward in a given day, we're crystal clear on our personal paths to least resistance and the most profit (for ourselves, our teams, our fams, and our clients). This episode is a mini coworkshop -- I'm inviting you to do the work with me in real time: What specific action(s) led to you enrolling the last client you L

  • Change in Plans [NE 078]

    04/10/2021

    Once upon a time (at the start of summer 2021) I launched season four: BOOK MODE with the intention of tracking my journey to self-publishing. Then my friends came to town and shook that ish up.In this episode I’ll share why we’ve had a CHANGE IN PLANS over here, why it feels a bit scary to admit that out loud and in published form, AND what that means for coming episodes. Musings include, but are not limited to: - why I originally went down the self-publishing path - behind-the-scenes of a (probably life-changing?) late night summer sQuad convo - the power of finding one clear, inclusive goal that makes all your other micro-goals inevitable stepping stones (repeatedly) - why I’m a bit nervous to publish this episode :) - a simple yet super powerful exercise for more mindFULL, intuitive decision making - a detailed list o' the benefits and drawbacks I *currently* see to both traditional and self-publishing paths - subject to change as I gather more actual experience!

    24/05/2021

    Context matters. Before I can actually UPDATE you on book progress, I gotta catch you up to speed on where we're starting from. How we got to the current moment / draft in time. In this episode I'll share an overview of my personal writing (drafting, revising) process to date, including, but not limited to: how and why I chose Naptime Empires as my first book (with a squillion other ideas circulating) what prompted the first draft back in April 2020 the exact process I used to go from 0 to 94k words in 12 days why I stopped working on it for months after that what got me back in the editing saddle (courtesy of Mother Nature's #nofilter sense of humor) the perks o' not meeting my original goal publish date how working on my book has been a boost to my physical health ideas for future episodes (share your vote via naptimeempires.com/convo!) If you have no plans to write a book, this may not be your fave ep. It's very housekeeping-y and in the weeds. If you DO want to write (or have already written!) a book, h

  • Season 4: BOOK MODE. Here's the plan. [NE 076]

    18/05/2021

    Introducing Naptime Empires: BOOK MODE - aka Season 4! You only write your first book once. (Or like, four times in slightly different ways, if you're me.) It's time for season FOUR o' the Naptime Empires® podcast - the journey to episode 100 and the publication of the Naptime Empires book! In this series of episodes I'll be sharing the good, the bad, the ugly of my creative and procrastinative process. WHY? Because I work best with a mutual inspiration society (being in conversation with YOU) and I am lovingly challenging myself to get this baby out - at least in ebook form! - before we hit episode 100. Just created a Google form (which I'll link in every episode description) where you can share any Qs you have for me about the process, the content, or just about anything else.* *I also welcome peer pressure "come on I wanna read it!" vibes to help me get over myself and get this book out of my google docs and into our hands and earbuds. Here's the link where you can share your side of the conversation
