Don't be alarmed by this week's episode. Jelly questions everything from the direction of the podcast, televisions in the bedroom, $20 mermaid blankets, and whether it's a good idea to take off, and travel the Great Loop. Do you have moments when you feel like you need a change, but you aren't sure what that is? Sometimes, it's a phase, and sometimes it's a signal that you need to challenge yourself creatively, physically, or spiritually. And sometimes, just talking about it for an hour on a podcast helps you work through it.

We hope this episode finds you creatively fulfilled and energized in your business. Don't worry about us, we will find our way! :)

Designing A Small Business To Succeed with Soul & Ink: Ep. 227


Small business isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for the brave, the patient and the persistent. It’s for the overcomer.

– Unknown

There is nothing more inspiring than seeing someone turn their passion into a successful business. Meet Sherry and Frankie from Soul & Ink! We are thrilled to have them back to update us on the growth of their business. They are award-winning graphic designers who turned their skills into a live screen printing experience. Soul & Ink does activations at events where they live screen print original designs so attendees can leave with a unique representation of their event experience. 

Frankie and Sherry share how they plan to expand their business, lessons learned, and how they've learned to take time out for themselves. And don't forget your Vitamin Stress Complex B! They also teach us a good lesson on focusing on one thing at a time and not fracturing your brand too soon.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. – Robert Collier

Podcasting With A Purpose. Therm and Rozay from Excuse My Adlib: Ep. 226


“There is only one success- to be able to spend your life in your own way.”

--Christopher Morley

It's a podcast mash up this week with the guys from the Excuse My Adlib Podcast and network. Big Therm and Rozay J share the passion and motivations behind their show which stems from a lifelong, positive relationship with hip hop music. 

Our conversation meanders to government oppression during coffee talk when we unwrap the news that Insane Clown Posse is organizing a march on Washington, DC to protest the FBI.

Getting to the point where you can support yourself full-time with your passion is often a process. For a process to start, you have to be proactive. Are you taking the steps towards your freedom of employment? Those first steps can be the scariest. We discuss some specific steps that Therm and Rozay can take with their show to make it an income producing venture. Here are some steps you can take towards your own entrepreneurial independence.

Getting To Your Freedom Day:

  • Figure out your monthly expenses so you know exactly how much money you need each month.

  • Where can you cut expenses?
  • Do something to move your business forward every day. Even if it's just 1% a day. Daily progress is essential. Don't stall, don't stagnate.
  • Find a group of entrepreneurs to meet with on a regular basis. You can find groups on MeetUp or form your own Mastermind group with the purpose of accountability and maintaining focus on your goals.
  • Get your first paying client-- a core client that can provide a source of predictable income and act as your business starter.

  • Network weekly, and be very outspoken about what you do for people.Meet as many people as you can. 

  • Grab your matching social media handles and establish an online presence.

  • Figure out exactly what you do and state it simply in a sentence.

  • Start before you are ready because you will never be 100% ready.Don't wait for a moment that will never occur. 

  • Stop sleeping so much and having so much fun. 

    "Entrepreneurship is living a few yearsof your life like most people won’t so you can spend the rest ofyour life like most people cant.” --Warren G. Tracy’s student

    • Stop making excuses. You will never move forward as long as they exist.

You Can’t Selfie Your Way To Success: Ep. 225



Quiet people have the loudest minds.” Stephen Hawking

Tim and Jelly are on their own this week!  They discuss how to recover when your life is turned upside down. Tim is going to be a Dad! That was his news, and it had him reeling until a friend made him see that he can still pursue his dream of being a famous comedian, and be a good dad.

Jelly shares her experience at the incredible Podcast Movement 2016. She has a moment of self-growth when she realizes it's ok to be an introvert at a conference. She also ponders the value of selfies with influencers and the fauxpreneur.

Finally, we discuss the differences between the wealthy and the poor according to an article Tim found. Jelly gets angry at its assumptions.

Hey! Thanks for listening--we appreciate it more than we can express properly. You can subscribe and rate the show on iTunes and Stitcher!
