How To Create Your Own Personal Brand

In this week’s episode we are talking all about personal branding!

Whether you have a product or service based business, whether you are a business owner or are employed, even as a mom, creating your own personal is essential these days.

Personal branding is a word widely used at the moment and many people don't really know what it actually means, how to create a brand and how to use it. That is why we recorded this Episode for you.

  • We talked all about how to show up with intention - in person and online.

  • What personal branding actually means.

  • Why personal branding is so important these days.

  • How you can create a personal brand by defining your values, your passion and interviewing other people about how they are perceiving you as well as so much more.

  • This episode will surely help you and give you some food for thought and hopefully help you make use of a brand that actually already exists.

Enjoy the listen and please share it with your friends and co-entrepreneurs!


Episode 13

How To Network For Business

For this week’s episode Kyla and I met at very unusual times to record it for you ;-) It was 11pm at night for me and 6:30am in the morning for her and we had a lot of fun while everyone in my house was already asleep and everyone in her house was still sleeping. It was dark outside both our windows and we worked like true international entrepreneurs 😅

Networking has been and still is such an important part of our business and this podcast actually that we decided to speak about the how to and why with you today.

Whether you have a product or service based business at the core of everything they are both are about connecting and adding value to people's lives.

During this episode we dive deep into the following points and answers some of those difficult but common questions.

✨ What we really should be focusing on when we go to networking

✨ With the online connections we can have without leaving the house, is it really worth it getting out there and networking in person

✨ How to find networking events and what to do if you live in a small community

✨ Some common things that could be holding you back from getting out to networking events

✨ How to overcome some of these challenges and some quick tips you can implement right now

Will you join the little challenge we ask you to do at the end?

We hope that this episode will inspire you to go out and network right away :-) It certainly did that for me at 12am in the middle of the night when we finished the recording. I was ready to go and network!

Enjoy the listen and please do give us your feedback and rate us on whichever platform you listen to us!! It means the world!


Episode 12

How To Create a Solid Business Foundation for Your Business

In this episode Kyla and Emilia talk about the fun challenge they held in their online Mums in Biz Facebook Group last month. They had such fun jumping on daily “lives” within the group to take them through a five step process to get their members to rethink their business, re-energise and motivate them.

Defining or Redefining Your Business in 5 Days is the perfect way to increase clarity within your business, have a clear direction, tap into your WHY and really map out what the rest of 2019 is going to look like for you.

We tend to get so focused on working “in” our businesses and rarely step back and work on how we want to show up in the world as entrepreneurs. This challenge was perfect to uncover some aspects maybe you haven't thought of before or properly defined.

The steps covered were:

Your Vision Statement
Your Ideal Customer 
Your Onliness Statement
The Business Essentials 
Your Mission Statement

Grab a pen, your journal and a quiet space and take notes and challenge yourself to get clear on your business.
