42.Finding Success as an Enneagram 9
This week Kristen interviews long time friend, client, and self-declared Enneagram 9, Kelsey Hansen, on her success and how she did things differently to build her business. Kelsey is a six figure earner with her company and is known as the “Sourdough Mentor” on Instagram. Yes, she provides value and creates content around sourdough bread AND has a successful business that is completely unrelated to that, on the same Instagram account. And she does it without hustling.   Kelsey wants people to know that you don’t have to be a super type-A, outgoing, extravert to build your business online. She’s showing up as her exact (introverted) self, developing relationships, and building trust. Relational equity and trust is a key foundation to a sustainable social selling business and Kelsey is the perfect example of that philosophy.   Here’s what you’ll learn during their conversation:   How Kristen and Kelsey started their own mastermind after meeting on Instagram Kelsey’s philosophy on investing in her business and how it impacted her growth Why Kelsey said she had to ‘get over herself’ and the image she had about network marketing How she built a 6-figure social selling business with 2300 Instagram followers in 10 months as an introvert What Kelsey did at the start of the pandemic that resulted in a growth explosion Why Kelsey is on a mission to show other women that they can have success with ease that is sustainable Why so many people think fear and discomfort is a ‘red light’ and how it should be used as a compass, instead   Follow Kelsey Hansen on Instagram for sourdough tips and watch how she runs her successful company with ease and sustainability. She’s the example of what’s possible as an enneagram 9 and/or a small following.   For show notes and more visit the episode webpage: https://www.kristenboss.com/finding-success-as-an-enneagram-9-ep-42 And if you’re ready to learn the simple process of running your social selling business online, you have to check out my live coaching program!

40. Selling Through Serving
Have you had some success in your social selling business, but you’ve realized that you can’t sustain the hustle for yourself or your team? What about coming to the industry with entrepreneurial success, and you tried to do things the way your social selling company (or so-called ‘guru’s’ were teaching) and with no traction?    Kristen’s interviewing two members of The Social Selling Academy with those exact circumstances and asking them what they learned (spoiler alert: it’s not a secret strategy) that had them shifting into lightning fast (and sustainable) growth.    Hethir Rodriguez came to the social selling world with several successful businesses under her belt. Utilizing what she was taught to do left her confused at her lack of results and looking for a better way.   Lizzy Palios has been a business builder with her social selling company for the past four years by working her warm market, but was searching for a better quality of life and less hustle while tapping into a cold market.   Here’s what you’ll learn:    What Hethir saw in the social selling industry that she DID NOT want to do in her business Why finding joy in the process vs. the results is important to Hethir Why friends and family are not your ideal target market if you want to create long-term, residual income Why it’s so important to learn to attract and convert a cold audience The biggest nugget Hethir learned and what she’s utilized every day since joining The Social Selling Academy How Lizzi’s leadership shifted once she joined and studied the material Lizzy’s eye-popping Instagram growth after implementing a change in her social media strategy How slowing down and modeling ‘anti-hustle’ changed Lizzy and her team Why Kristen is so passionate about talking about and making money How learning to develop a team who works in their part-time hours is so important right now   Kristen knows the strategies that create results, but the difference between people who succeed and people who don’t is the mindset they’re in when they take that action. Listen to these two implementers and learn exactly how they had such rapid success.   For show notes and more visit the episode webpage:    https://www.kristenboss.com/selling-through-serving-ep-40   And if you’re ready to learn the simple process of running your social selling business online, you have to check out my new program!

38. Ambitious Anxiety
Many people are stuck in the hustle of growing their business and trying to reach their next goal to the point that they can’t take a break or rest without being plagued with an impulse to respond to messages, write another post, or message another person. They think that drive is what is motivating them to hit the next goal, but it’s likely high-functioning anxiety.   Kristen shares her experience of discovering that she had high-functioning anxiety and that her ambition was being fueled by restlessness and an inability to manage her thoughts about her business when she was resting.   Why most people don’t identify as being ‘anxious’ Different types of anxiety Why ambition and hustle are typically related to the inability to rest The ‘red flag’ phrases to spot that likely mean you’re in ambitious anxiety Why your brain dramatizes and catastrophizes what will happen to your business if you take a break The 2 things you’re not managing if you’re in anxious energy/restlessness The conditioning cycle we’ve bought into when we have big goals 3 tips on how to improve your ambitious anxiety   There’s nothing wrong with being ambitious and wanting to create big success in your business, but when it’s at the detriment of your physical and mental well-being, it defeats the whole purpose. We need to stop validating the thought that your business only grows if you are giving it 100% of your time and energy.   For show notes and more visit the episode webpage:   https://www.kristenboss.com/ambitious-anxiety-ep-38   And if you’re ready to learn the simple process of running your social selling business online, you have to check out my new program!   The Social Selling Academy: www.thesocialsellingacademy.com   The Attraction Formula Webinar: https://kristenboss.mykajabi.com/The-3-Attraction-Formula   Make sure to be on the email list and grab the free training. To get on the email list- click here. https://www.thesocialsellingacademy.com/vip   The Social Selling Academy: www.thesocialsellingacademy.com

37. Default Thoughts
The first step to changing your current reality is to become aware of the thoughts creating it. Today, Kristen is sharing the way our brain likes to stay safe and comfortable by continuing to think negative ‘default’ thoughts.    Default thoughts are like a security blanket that we carry around to stay safe...and ultimately stuck. They are hard to find and change, but if you learn how to change them, they will create the biggest impact in your business--more than any strategy.   Don’t miss these highlights:   What are default thoughts and why you should learn your default thoughts Why default thoughts feel so true that they sound like facts Examples of common default thoughts in life and in business How negative default thoughts will stop you from any forward momentum in your business Why default thoughts are hard to notice What to do once you start to notice your negative default thoughts   Your brain will discredit what IS working in your business when your default thoughts keep you focused on what isn’t working. Your brain looks for evidence to prove your thoughts true.    Learn how to spot and change your negative default thoughts and see your entire life and business change.    For show notes and more visit the episode webpage:    https://www.kristenboss.com/leaving-the-9-to-5-ep-36   And if you’re ready to learn the simple process of running your social selling business online, you have to check out my new program!   The Social Selling Academy: www.thesocialsellingacademy.com

36. Leaving the 9-5
When you started your social selling business, you likely had a dream of leaving your “day job.” You probably dreamed about it so much that you ended up romanticising what your life would look like without your 9 to 5.   You may think this dream/goal is motivating you into growing a successful network marketing business, but today’s episode will challenge you on this idea.   Shifting from bitterness and resentment to gratitude and joy for your current work situation will change everything about how you’re showing up in your social selling business. And it will actually make your plan B, your reality sooner rather than later.   Don’t miss these highlights:   Why you don’t have ‘more time’ when you quit your 9 to 5 and how you’re more efficient when you’re doing both jobs The intentional thoughts you need to think in order to find joy in your current job How much money you actually need to be making before you quit your 9 to 5 Why setting a deadline to leave your 9 to 5 has a negative impact on your social selling business How to stop the feelings of bitterness and resentment from creeping into your 9 to 5 The multiple phases of a social selling business and how that informs when you should leave your 9 to 5 The key things that will ruin your experience while you stay with your 9 to 5 and work on building your ‘side hustle’ Having the ultimate goal of working for yourself by building your social selling business is great! But treating that goal as an escape hatch out of misery will have a negative impact on your new business.   For show notes and more visit the episode webpage:   https://www.kristenboss.com/leaving-the-9-to-5-ep-36   And if you’re ready to learn the simple process of running your social selling business online, you have to check out my new program!   The Social Selling Academy: www.thesocialsellingacademy.com   The Attraction Formula Webinar: https://kristenboss.mykajabi.com/The-3-Attraction-Formula   Make sure to be on the email list and grab the free training. To get on the email list- click here. https://www.thesocialsellingacademy.com/vip   The Social Selling Academy: www.thesocialsellingacademy.com
