Sonya Stattmann
There is no one right way to do business, there is just a right way for YOU! And many women in business are DONE with hustle, bro-marketing culture, and business tactics that are misaligned with their values. Instead, more women are looking to build a business that honors their passion, gifts & wisdom. If you are ready for a DIFFERENT way to operate your business - one that brings ease, challenges the patriarchal status quo, and helps you make a difference in the world (with both your business & your bank account), then this podcast is for you! Sonya Stattmann uses her 21 years of experience working with thousands of women in business to facilitate honest, educational & inspiring conversations with other women leaders, business owners, and experts. She also has regular conversations with our resident mental health expert, Laura-Shook Guzman, to tackle mindset, thinking, and the patterns that sabotage women’s path to business success. This is a DIFFERENT kind of business podcast!
Re-evaluate Your Relationships | Growth Tip #10
When it comes to relationships, women leaders are expected to be healers. We’re taught to smooth ruffled feathers, soothe old wounds, and repair breaks and tears.But that repair work takes enormous energy. If you’re wasting it on propping up relationships that no longer nourish you, what do you have left for the people who make your heart feel full?Laura and I are wrapping up our season on Growth as a Removal Process by looking at the connections we have with other people, and why we hold onto them even when they aren’t good for us. We’re giving ourselves and our listeners permission to evaluate our relationships honestly, to prioritize our time and energy, and to evolve or let go of connections that take more from us than they give.Join us as we discuss: Why it’s so difficult to think about making changes to a relationship, and how fear of that change can short-circuit our attempts to understand its impact.Listening to the vital messages we get from our bodies about how our relationships affect us.Strategies to help you initiate the evolutionary process, including owning your truth and setting self-honoring boundaries.Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/ Where can you follow Laura:Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/  Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Practice Truth-Telling | Growth Tip #9
Each one of us has our own Truth. It’s the sum of our deepest needs, our dearest values, and our most strongly held beliefs. Unfortunately, women leaders are trained to hide parts of themselves, or to water them down to keep other people comfortable. This episode of Women in the Business Arena is about the power of truth-telling. Not just speaking truth to others, but owning our own Truth and honoring ourselves. What’s standing between you and telling your whole Truth? Is it self-doubt, fear of rejection, or the assumption that you’re just Too Much? Laura and I will help you identify and remove those obstacles to being your authentic self, and discover the growth energy we uncover when we stop hiding our essential selves.Join us as we discuss: Starting our truth-telling with the most important person in our lives: ourselves!Connecting to and trusting your body to help you understand your truth.The unbelievable energy savings we realize when we don’t have to guess at each other’s emotional states.Trusting ourselves and our energy, and allowing ourselves to express them without fear.Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/ Where can you follow Laura:Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/  Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Welcome All the Guests | Growth Tip #8
One of the strongest barriers between us and the growth we’re seeking is internal and invisible. It’s rooted in the ways women were taught that certain parts of us are good and meant to be nurtured, while others are bad and should be rejected. We waste so much energy trying to block off or hush up feelings that we’re taught to fear.Laura and I want you to know that all the parts of your very human self are worthy. When we honor all our emotions and energies, we can turn our time and energy to integrating them, and moving forward as our whole, complete, authentic selves.In this episode in our series on growth, we’ll help you start to remove the obstacles between you and the self-acceptance and self-love you deserve.Join us as we discuss: Reclaiming the energy we waste trying to fix ourselves.Looking at the parts of yourself as aspects to allow rather than problems to solve.The ways that integrating our whole selves helps us identify our priorities and make choices that are aligned with our values.The title and theme of this episode were inspired by “The Guest House,” a poem by Rumi. https://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poem/guest-house/ Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/ Where can you follow Laura:Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/  Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Simplify Your Marketing | Growth Tip #7
When it comes to marketing, so many of us are doing Too Much. Social media, networking events, client calls, live video: the options are practically infinite. Trying to be everywhere at once is a recipe for disillusionment and burnout. Diluting ourselves doesn’t just sap our life force, it wastes our time and waters down our impact.This week, we continue our season’s theme around how Growth is a Removal Process. We ask a vital question. How can you simplify your marketing to increase your impact, conserve your energy, and meet your ideal clients where they are?I’m excited to explore this topic with Nedra Rezinas. Nedra is a marketing consultant who helps service-based entrepreneurs learn to delegate and outsource so they can scale their business and do more work in their “zone of genius”. She has over 20 years of direct experience in marketing and online business, specializing in developing custom marketing strategies that attract high-value clients.Join us as we discuss: Why it’s so important to have a deep understanding of who your ideal client is and where to find them.The lure of social media, and how to step away if it’s not working for you.Strategies that focus on your strengths and the tasks that excite you, instead of one-size-fits-all content generation.The benefits of generating and repurposing your evergreen content to help your ideal client find you.Where can you follow Nedra Rezinas: Website: https://www.nedrarezinas.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nrezinasconsulting/ (@nrezinasconsulting)LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nrezinas/Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Get Re-Sourced | Growth Tip #6
When you hear the word “resource,” what do you think about? If you’re like most of us, what comes to mind is external. Money, time, employees, training: they’re all things that come from outside ourselves.External resources are limited and finite. But inside each of us is an unlimited reserve of power & strength. This week, Laura and I talk about what we can embrace when we stop looking outside ourselves for sustenance and return to the infinite sources of power inside ourselves.Join us as we discuss: Why it’s so important to know and tap into our core selves.The freedom we unlock when we access Self and develop our internal resilience.  Techniques you can integrate into your busy life that will help you begin to focus more fully on your amazing inner strength.Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/Where can you follow Laura:Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Find a Safe Space to Be Yourself | Growth Tip #5
In our culture, women are expected to “keep it all together” even when the pressure is pulling us apart. We are expected to hold space for others when we don’t even have space for ourselves. We shame ourselves for feeling fear or needing comfort. And we carry these ideas into our community spaces.  This week, we’re giving women (including ourselves) permission to remove that pressure and abandon the illusion of “having it all together”. We are also encouraging you to seek out spaces to be your authentic self.Investing in spaces that give you permission to truly be yourself can transform your life and work. It shifts your relationship with your values, your desires, and your power and helps you access your full potential.In a personal, intimate conversation, Laura and I explore the power we unlock when we allow ourselves room to be vulnerable. Why having a safe space to express yourself is so crucial to enable your growth.Ways to identify the places and people that allow you to come as you are.How working through anxiety in a genuine community can help you show up courageously in more challenging circumstances.The resilience that comes from identifying and nurturing the spaces that embrace every aspect of yourself, even the messy parts. Where can you follow Sonya: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/ (@sonya_stattmann)https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonyastattmann/Where can you follow Laura:Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Lead With Your Genius | Growth Tip #3
This week’s episode is a throwback to my other podcast, The Feminine Lens. It’s a solo episode, where I shared my thoughts on strengths, weaknesses, and why it’s so important to identify your unique genius. So much of professional development is built on improving skills or tasks that we’re not very good at. This approach reinforces the falsehood that business success is tied to our worthiness. I want to help you reframe this whole concept. When you stop wasting energy on your “flaws” and instead center everything around your innate genius, you can build a business or life that aligns with your authentic self. Join me as I discuss: The crucial difference between learned strengths and built-in capacities.Why doing things you’ve learned how to do well can feel productive, while secretly draining your energy and leading to burnout.Unchaining your growth from your worth.How aligning your business with your unique genius will unlock more energy, more growth, and more wealth.You can find more at: Website: https://www.sonyastattmann.com/Social: https://www.instagram.com/sonya_stattmann/🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?

Growth is a Removal Process | Growth Tip #1
Welcome back to a new season of Women in the Business Arena! I’m so excited to spend this season exploring a topic that’s extremely personal and powerful to me. As entrepreneurs, we’re taught to always be growing: growing our client base, growing our offers, growing our profits. But for so many of us, “bigger” and “better” are actually opposites! Regular co-host and mental health expert Laura Shook-Guzman brings her insight back to our mic, as we introduce you to the possibilities we access when we let go of excess, dissolve old patterns, and remove what no longer serves us.Join us as we discuss: The real freedom that comes from removing the patterns that no longer serve us.The pressure the business world puts on women entrepreneurs to keep others happy, and never, ever set down a responsibility.Paying attention to the messages our bodies and minds send when we need to simplify.Why it’s so important to be thoughtful about where we’re directing our energy, our time, and our attention.Where can you follow Laura: Website: https://www.consciousambition.com/ Social: https://www.instagram.com/consciousambition/ (@consciousambition)The book Laura mentions at 30:26 is How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain, by Lisa Feldman Barrett🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️‍🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♀️More Support for Women In Business:You can find free gifts, opportunities to contribute & more at http://womeninthebusinessarena.comLove the podcast?
