Grit, The Lies We Tell Ourselves & What Entrepreneurship Really Looks Like with Lori Kennedy

December 6, 2018

We are fortunate enough to have a very special guest on the podcast today (and she happens to be a fellow Canadian!)

Lori Kennedy is the founder and CEO of The Wellness Business Hub which provides professional training and personal development for health practitioners looking to build and grow their businesses online. She’s also a mom, and lover of all things related to coffee.

Lori’s two foundational programs The Wellness Business Academy and the Launch It Like a Boss Mastermind are growing a powerful community of health leaders who are transforming the way healthcare is done all over the world. She is also the host of The Business of Becoming Podcast for entrepreneurs who want to build the business and life of their dreams… all on their own terms.

I absolutely love Lori’s honesty and tell-it-like-it-is attitude, and this episode is no exception.

Lori is talking to us about what it really takes to build a business, behind the scenes of entrepreneurship, and some of the most important qualities needed for success including pure grit.  Plus, she’s calling BS on the idea that you can make 6-figures overnight and talking about sustainability and learning how to scale your biz without constantly trading time for money.

One of the biggest takeaways for me was the examples Lori demonstrates around getting creative and scrappy in her business, especially when she was first starting out and learning everything she could.

And if you’re trying to build a business while juggling a full-time job and/or kids and feeling overwhelmed, Lori’s giving us her 3 top tips to create your business from the ground up while life is still happening around you.

Some of the biggest takeaways from my chat with Lori:

  • Qualities that are undervalued when it comes to entrepreneurship
  • Showing up exactly as you are for true authenticity
  • What Lori wishes someone had told her about building a business
  • How to get over perfectionism and the “shoulds”
  • Knowing when to ask for help
  • Operating as a “socially successful introvert”

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or not. you’re going to get a lot out of this episode because Lori is giving all kinds of incredible nuggets of wisdom that can be applied in various capacities to anyone’s life and help you to show up as the best possible version of yourself.  Take a listen, and don’t forget to grab your ticket to Lori’s in-person event in Toronto for June 2019 here

My brand new training, Launch Like A Pro Podcasting webinar is coming up in a few days! I get SO MANY questions about starting a podcast, and I wanted to put together something incredible valuable to teach you what you need to know.  It’s all going down on Tuesday, December 11th @ 7:30pm EST.

This training will cover the 3 secrets no one tells you about how to finally start a podcast and how to successfully launch in 6 weeks! You’ll learn:

1. How to decide if you should have a co-host or go solo, and the ONE single thing that will determine if your podcast is going to be a success.

2. The exact way to build lasting, authentic relationships with potential guests that might seem otherwise out of reach to grow your business.

3. How to prepare for your launch date from start to finish and properly submit your podcast for approval to Apple and the other major platforms.

Podcasting is one of my favourite things to do. It has allowed me to build trust with my audience, grow my business, expand on a new platform, and build strong relationships with people across multiple industries I would otherwise have never had an oppourtunity to connect with.

After launching two separate podcasts since November 2017, including one with a co-host and now my current podcast on my own, I’ve learned and implemented strategies that I want to share with you that will help you navigate how to successfully and confidently create your own podcast and business.
