Answering the Call of Entrepreneurship Having an Unwavering Self-Belief with Elzie Flenard (#048)

Answering the Call of Entrepreneurship Having an Unwavering Self-Belief with Elzie Flenard (#048)

November 27, 2020

In this episode I discuss what it takes to stay the course through the challenges of entrepreneurship with Elzie Flenard and the lessons he’s taken from years of interviewing successful entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurship is tough, and it’s not for everyone. How do you push through the challenges?

Don’t pigeonhole Elzie D. Flenard III. Don’t even try. Describe him this way, and he’ll point out that one. Change your perspective, and he’ll lead you down another path … maybe without your even realizing. He’s a creative dude, an entrepreneur, a family man, a business owner. No “box” fits. It doesn’t exist. He’s a man of original thoughts, all products of unique thinking.

Above all, Elzie is a storyteller. He unpacks topics from unexpected directions, weaving myriad influences into his music, speaking and podcasting. Society, business, current events – you can never predict his take. Suffice to say, it’s probably different than you’ve encountered. Why do things happen? How do they drive behavior? Most importantly, what do YOU think? Elzie wants to know. Dialog and conversation are great teachers. Listening inspires Elzie. Yes, listening. Almost a forgotten skill, in an era of endless chatter and oversize bullhorns.

See, everyone has a voice. Everyone has something to say. Via the power of podcasting, Elzie partners with businesses to turn their “voice” into a powerful marketing tool. Podcasting creates, and cultivates, relationships with consumers. A story about how a business began, about its products or services, or even its missteps, resonates through a human voice. Via Enterprise NOW!, his podcasting company, Elzie helps businesses find their “voice.” A voice doesn’t have to be loud – just real. His clients repurpose their podcast content for blogs, or social media posts, or books. The ball rolls, and rolls.

Elzie’s foray into Enterprise NOW! began not long after starting an Internet radio station. Its content tilted toward business, reflecting the founder’s entrepreneurial bent. Even while working a decade in electrical engineering and electronics technology, Elzie had side gigs: a record label. A minor-league basketball team. A music production company.  He’s always been a tinkerer, going back to a childhood knack for taking things apart and putting them back together. Or writing his first song at age 5, a passion that continues today with multiple albums, EPs and singles under his belt. The holder of an MBA, and a B.S. in electronics systems technologies, you can always expect originality from Elzie. Just don’t try to label him. No shoe fits … and he wouldn’t wear it anyhow.

How To Te Successful Buying Online Businesses With Jaryd Krause (#047)

Have you ever dreamed about starting your own business?

What’s been holding you back? Fear? Not knowing where to start? Perhaps you don’t even know what kind of business you want to own yet?

Many people dream of starting their own business, but often for one of the reasons above, they never get past the dreaming stage.

But what if you could bypass the whole initial start up phase and step into an already established business? And what if you could have someone with experience hold your hand along the way?

Did you know that people are buying and selling established online businesses, of varieties and values around the world every day?

That is exactly what I am discussing on this episode with Jaryd Krause.

If the idea of running your own business appeals to you but getting started has been a challenge, this episode is for you.

Jaryd Krause used to be a plumber working 60+ hours per week and hated it.

Fast-forward to today, and he now owns multiple online businesses himself and many of his clients earn thousands to tens of thousands of dollars per month from their business they bought working with Jaryd.

A Voyage of Self-Discovery Through Art and Music with Michelle Myrick (#046)

A Voyage of Self-Discovery Through Art and Music with Michelle Myrick (#046)

November 20, 2020

Michelle Myrick was born and raised at Cape Pine Lighthouse in Newfoundland, Canada and currently lives in Norway. 
  
She has been a singer, songwriter, and musician for most of her life, but when she took up painting a few years ago, everything seemed to fall into place. 

Painting opened a new door of self-discovery – a door that led to greater awareness of how unresolved trauma and self-doubt had been holding her back. Through visual art, she began to see the hidden gifts within her experiences, and the deeper meaning they held for her life. 

In 2018, Michelle brought her message to audiences in her powerful show, “The Song Series” – a live performance where she presents her original songs, the paintings she created based upon them, and the stories and experiences behind them – a show she still performs internationally. 

Inspired by the relatable lessons within the “Song Series”, audiences wanted more. So, in August 2019, she released her first book, a memoir: “Stepping Stones – From Self-doubt to Self-belief: Finding Meaning and Purpose for your Life” as well as a full-length recording of original music, “Songs from the Song Series”.
The story doesn’t end there. In fact, it’s the beginning of another new chapter. This year, Michelle achieved certification as a life coach, and launched her first coaching program “Be the Lighthouse” – which already has a waitlist for the second offering scheduled for September. 

Her artistic journey led her back to her true self. It fuelled her passion to help others and has formed the basis of her life purpose – to teach others how to overcome adversity through thought management, and how to build self-confidence to pursue life dreams and goals. 

A teacher by trade, a creative at heart and a coach by practice, this former lighthouse girl has found a way to combine her skills, talents and experiences to help guide others in redesigning their lives from the inside out.

Michelle offers a variety of art-based products, coaching services and programs as well as special events which include “The Song Series”, “Soul Sister Summit” and “Team Building Seminars”. She is also available as a keynote speaker and retreat facilitator.

With the New Year fast approaching it's a good time to take stock and consider what our goals are and how we are moving toward them, but data shows that 97% of people don't have written goals.

We wouldn't set off on even the most trivial of trips without a destination in mind and plan to get there. So why do so many people leave life to chance?

What are your goals? Do you have a definite major purpose?

Natsune is a self-mastery enthusiast and renowned deep thinker. She is the author of The Game of Self-Domination and the host of LifeUpEducationTV.

Having built her life up from nothing multiple times—including being almost a kicked out high school student in Japan — NaNa has not only gone on to finish her University education in Business and Economics in the United States as a foreigner, but she’s worked with hundreds of innovators, entrepreneurs, and next-generation thinkers in Seattle.

Despite her young age, she’s helped dozens of CEOs and young start-up founders skyrocket their successes – all while building her own online businesses on the side.

Passionate about creating lifelong success and inspiring others to reach their full potential, her goal is to help people reach their dreams and master their resilience in life.
