Episode 8: Her Life Reflection The Led To Starting A Business

In this episode, I'm chatting with my friend Holly Gillen, who is the founder of Holly G Studios.

Holly empowers modern online entrepreneurs, thought leaders and influencers to go from confused to confident and from fearful to fearless on both sides of the camera. 

She teaches them the skills they need to create not just videos, but Business Cinema™ Business Cinema is the way that she likes to describe the next level video.

How to find Health Insurance As An Entrepreneur

What am I going to do about health insurance? This is a common question that aspiring entrepreneurs ask themselves when looking to leave the 9-5. Shopping for health insurance is on the very bottom of my “entrepreneurial excitement list”; however, it’s super important.

There are a ton of health insurance options out there for the self-employed. It may take some digging to find an option that meets your current healthcare needs, however, it’s well worth the effort.

While I’m no insurance broker, I’ve spent countless hours filtering through hundreds of insurance options for entrepreneurs and hoped my own research may be of assistance to other Corporate Misfits in the market for some medical coverage.

Put those earbuds in and listen right away but if you want a sneak peek of what we talk about during this episode, here you go:

  • Healthcare Marketplace
  • Stride Health
  • Cobra Insurance
  • Association Benefits
  • Limited Option - Samaritan Ministries Insurance...

Are You Really Ready For Entrepreneurship?

business entrepreneurship Mar 12, 2019

You've probably heard before that entrepreneurship isn't for everyone, which probably makes you question your ability to launch a startup .

But for many aspiring entrepreneurs, the desire to do something on their own and be in charge of their own destiny is enough motivation to leave a 9-to-5 job -- regardless of their current professional status.

Pursuing entrepreneurship is not only a career choice but a lifestyle choice, so you want to make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. If you are starting up only to gain money or power, you will not likely achieve success. 

Questioning if you're cut out for entrepreneurship is normal (ACTUALLY IT'S IMPORTANT TO QUESTION YOURSELF) 

On today's episode, I am sharing how to know if you're really ready for entrepreneurship. 

When looking to go into the world of entrepreneurship, it’s important...

Why the Riches Are in The Niches!



Have you heard this before in business... "The Riches Are In The Niches?" 

Sometimes as new entrepreneurs niching down your audience can feel extremely scary. 

Several entrepreneurs believe that if they target everyone they have a better chance of making sales and getting their products and services out into the world, rather than narrowing down their audience.

When I ask business owners who their target market is, many tend to respond with “everyone”. The translation is no one.

How would I know? At one point in time, I tried to service the widest market possible.

Serving any and everyone is a huge mistake.

In today’s episode, I want to share the benefits of working with your niche audience.

Here are a few reasons as to why it’s important in business to identify your customer niche:

  • You are able to understand the struggle of a smaller group of “like” individuals
  • Speak...
