148. Leader Shame
Being a leader can be a tough gig. Especially if you feel like you don’t deserve to be in that position. But what is it that makes you think that you’re unworthy of the title? These feelings of unworthiness can manifest into thoughts like ‘If I were a better leader, my team member wouldn’t have left,’ or ‘If I knew how to talk to my team, then their sales numbers would be better.’ And those kinds of thoughts just aren’t serving you.   That’s why Kristen is here to talk about leader shame and the effect it can have on not only your business and team but also in how you show up in your personal life.   Listen in as she goes over these key points:   What a leader IS NOT Growing through your journey as a leader alongside your team Definition of shame and how it affects your leadership A strategy on how to move through leader shame How removing judgment can and will make room for acceptance   You’re human. And like all humans, you’re going to make mistakes. Not all leaders are perfect, so there’s no reason to expect perfection from yourself. The next time you feel unworthy of being a leader - try looking through the lens of self-compassion and have kindness for yourself and the journey you’re on.    You heard right!

147. Understanding Self Sabotage
Self-sabotage was the big buzzword a few years back when everyone started to believe that they were to blame for all the things that had gone wrong in their life. And while self-sabotage is definitely a real thing, our understanding of the term is inherently flawed.   Self-sabotage isn’t necessarily a bad thing - and that’s why, in this episode, Kristen is talking about why it’s important for you to understand self-sabotage so that you can begin to move past this behavior and work towards your goals.    Here are a few key points:   The true definition of self-sabotage Why you need to learn to sit with what makes you uncomfortable The importance of giving yourself permission to experience rejection How harmful rhetoric can sabotage your leadership abilities Why self-awareness should become your leadership superpower   With a little understanding and a whole lot of self-compassion, you can take what was once perceived as a negative into something positive. Understanding why your brain goes into ‘sabotage’ mode can help you to navigate through those troubled waters. So the next time you feel like you’re sabotaging your results, take a step back and give yourself a little grace.   You heard right!

146. Triggers, Teachers, and Truth
In this episode, Kristen is adding onto the leadership topic by discussing what leadership really looks like. And spoiler alert! It’s not what you might think. Leadership isn’t just for super successful, 6 figure earners. Leadership also isn’t just plugging your new team members into a system and hoping they figure it out. And it’s definitely not always having the answers.   So what is leadership actually like? Well, strap in because Kristen is talking about leadership triggers, teachers, and truth. And how understanding those triggers can lead you into a better position as a leader.   Let’s check out a few of the highlights:   Top struggles for leaders in network marketing Why systems aren’t a substitute for true leadership Importance of self-awareness as a leader Definition of triggered leadership   Understanding what triggers you and also how you react to those triggers can help you become a more self-aware leader. This will allow you to better prepare for those unwanted reactions that are standing in the way of you becoming the leader you know you can be. Show yourself some grace throughout the process. If you can’t hold space for yourself, how can you hold space for your team?   You heard right! Kristen is hosting a FREE Rising Leader Webinar Friday, February 3rd at 11 AM MT.

145. The Leadership Lid
Has your social selling business grown stagnant? Do you feel like you have a good handle on how this industry works - you know how to sell your product and you’ve grown your audience - but still feel like you’re not advancing or seeing your income grow like it should? There are a number of factors that you can examine to try and find the root of the issue. But chances are, it’s a leadership problem. If you seem to have hit a wall in your social selling business, then that wall might actually be a lid. In this episode, Kristen discusses the Law of the Lid and how you can’t grow beyond a certain point unless you learn to grow your leadership skills as well.  Let’s look at a few highlights from this episode:  The differences between being a manager and being a leader Why your team’s growth might be stunted by letting them figure things out on their own Importance of solving for why your team isn’t making their business a priority Questions to ask to find out if you have a leadership gap Examples of unhealthy leadership types If you don’t have the skills to grow and develop your team - you won’t be able to close the gap and move forward in your business. But the good news is that these skills can be taught. It’s just a matter of taking responsibility as a leader and identifying what areas you need to improve upon. Before you know it, you’ll be watching your team soar to new heights with you at the helm.

144. New Year New You
Happy New Year, friends! Ushering in a new year is the perfect time to start thinking about resolutions and the things you’d like to change in your life. Whether it’s to lose weight, make a bigger paycheck, or kick bad habits to the curb, this is the time to do it.   But what if the reason WHY you’re making these new year’s resolutions are just as important as the resolutions themselves? When you set goals from a place of self-loathing and worthlessness, it can affect more than just those goals.   That’s why, in this episode, Kristen is talking about the ‘new year, new you’ philosophy and why it can be damaging your future plans before you’ve even taken the first step   Here are a few key points:   Why it can be toxic when we set goals based on past disappointments What it looks like to base goals on self-love vs. self-loathing Debunking the ‘you can’t bring your old self into the new year’ belief How learning creates change   No one ever said change was bad. But making changes because you hate the way you look or because you’re disappointed in yourself isn’t the most healthy approach. Instead, give yourself some compassion. Have an honest conversation about how your circumstances are the way they are, then take ownership of it. Then - from a place of self-love, create goals that align with who you want to be in the new year.    We have an exciting announcement!

143. Sweeping Hair and Frothing Milk
Deciding to become a business owner is a big step in someone’s life. It’s often fueled by hopes and dreams of what the future will hold. Unfortunately, lavish lifestyles and overnight success are not the norm. It’s great to have huge long-term goals, but it can be hard to manage expectations along the way.   In this episode, Kristen shares with us a couple of lessons in humility and entitlement that she had to learn the hard way. From sweeping hair to frothing milk, her path to success definitely didn’t look like what you see on social media. And that’s ok because what she learned on the journey to success helped shape the business she runs today.   Let’s look at a few highlights:   Kristen’s personal story of humility and managing expectations The importance of creating your own success through networking How to feel gratitude for the journey Why getting a part-time job might help keep you out of a scarcity mindset   Learning humility on the way to becoming successful is a lesson all entrepreneurs should learn. Sometimes the things you need to do in order to reach your goals can feel like a step back. Taking a part-time job or learning new skills isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength. If you want to make career money, you have to make career moves.    The biggest event of the year starts TODAY! Business Reboot for Social Sellers is the brand new, highly anticipated training series to end your 2022 with a huge bang. Join Kristen LIVE Today through Wednesday (Dec. 26-28) for 3 days of intensive training to help recession-proof your business and show you how to turn your social selling business into a real financial asset.

142. Grounded in Gratitude
The holidays are always crazy busy and crazy stressful. But there is one thing that can take the craziness down a few notches and bring everything into focus. And that, my friends, is gratitude. If you’re having a rough patch, like so many do during the holidays, it can be hard to feel grateful. Whether you’re short on funds, your loved ones aren’t close by, or for whatever reason - there is always something to be grateful for. And sometimes, this change in perspective can be just the bit of magic you need to make this the best season ever.   In this episode, Kristen shares a personal story about the first Christmas she spent as a newlywed and how even the humblest holiday can end up being the one you’re most grateful for.   Here are a few highlights:   The importance of focusing on what the holiday season means to you How gratitude makes a difference in how we move through life Why gratitude can be the antidote to comparison How reflecting on past accomplishments can help change your point of view   Just like how we have bad days and good, good years and bad - this can also include the holiday season. If you’re struggling this season, it doesn’t have to mean that next year will be just as rough. Hopefully, soon you’ll be able to look back on these hard seasons and feel gratitude in your heart for how far you’ve come. Focus on those who mean the most to you, and cherish the time you have.   The biggest event of the year is back again!

141. Presence for the Holidays
It’s that time of year again! The holidays are upon us, and that means baking cookies, holiday parties, and creating memories with your loved ones. What it doesn’t mean is letting your business suffer for it. You don’t have to turn your business off in order to be fully present with your family.   Taking time away from your business in order to be fully present is the best gift you can give not only to your family but to yourself as well. That’s why in this episode, Kristen is talking about presence for the holidays and what it takes to unplug completely.   Let’s look at a few highlights from this episode:   What it means to be truly present - with your loved ones as well as yourself Kristen’s personal experience of unplugging for an entire week How to plan your business around your family’s holiday experience The importance of focusing on income-producing activities Where discipline and rhythm come into play when scheduling rest   Putting your phone down and walking away for a few hours won’t cause your business to implode. Taking time off requires trust. Not only in your business or the systems you’ve created but also in yourself. It will still be there for you when you get back.   The biggest event of the year is back again! Business Reboot for Social Sellers is the brand new, highly anticipated training series to end your 2022 with a huge bang.

140. Business Resentment
Running a business is full of ups and downs, sort of like a rollercoaster. Some months are great, while others can fall flat. If those less-than-stellar months leave you feeling like you want to give up and hide under a rock, you might be knocking on the door to resentment.   And to hear Kristen tell it, resentment is a stepping stone on the way to burnout. In this episode, she discusses how chronic disappointment from unmet expectations can put a strain on the relationship you have with your business. If you’ve felt less than enthusiastic about your business lately, you’ll want to tune in.   Here are a few key points from this episode:   The warning signs of heading toward resentment in your business Why setting unattainable goals can lead to disappointment How to know if you’re in a toxic relationship with your business The importance of managing expectations    Just like in any relationship - feeling resentment is a warning sign that means something isn’t working and things need to change. The first step is to stop placing unfair expectations on yourself and in turn - on your business. Don’t let the status of your business define your worth.   The biggest event of the year is back again!
