With Flow

With Flow

A weekly show for purpose driven women who are ready to embrace a more balanced approach to business. This podcast is for you if you've ever wished online business could feel easier. That you could do it without the need to hustle or constantly be on the hamster wheel trying to make progress. We'll be exploring all things cycle awareness and intuition, combined with the more practical aspects of business like systems, workflows, planning, and tech. Because we need the balance of both energies to reach our goals. The show will be a combination of short sharp and value packed episodes designed to educate and empower you to change the way you plan and run your business, and guest interviews with other inspiring women in the online business world. I'm your host Laura from Business with Flow. Cyclical Business Mentor, and Systems and Planning Queen. Over the last few years I have been on my own journey from corporate burnout and adrenal fatigue, to online business consultant, learning to do business in a way that feels easy, grounded, organised, and most importantly fun. This is an inclusive community for ALL women and menstruators. If you don't have a menstrual cycle you can apply all the principles we discuss using the phases of the moon. Hit 'Follow' in your favourite podcast app now to make sure you don't miss out on an episode. And share the podcast with your friends. The more we have open conversations about our bodies and our cycles the more we can own and embrace our natural superpowers!

If you've been here a while you know I like to preach the gospel of rest!

Now it's not that rest is the only thing that is important, you get to work hard too… it's just that we high achievers are already good at that bit. We're not afraid of long days, big to do lists, and getting our hands dirty so to speak.

Its the rest part of the equation that we need help with.

So in this episode I'm going to share some ways ...

    It might sound counter intuitive, but sometimes slowing down is necessary in order to speed up.

    Taking the time to slow down, take stock, reassess, and then move forwards in the right direction.

    Key points in this episode:

  • Business growth isn't usually a steady consistent thing, you can have periods of rapid growth, and periods where things are a little slower.  The key is to work with that ebb and flow and use it to create more m...

    Sometimes it feels like you open up Instagram and you're being bombarded with all of these tips about being more productive, being more efficient.

    In this episode I want to call bullshit on some of the productivity hacks out there that I just can't get on board with. 

    A reminder, as women or menstruating humans, we aren't built to be productive every single day. We're not meant to be consistent day in, day out, across...

    Does it feel like you're doing everything right, but not making progress? Not getting the results you want or expect?

    Are you tracking your stats and looking at your metrics?

    Bear with me….

    We all know that you can't just set the intention and things magically happen. Results come from taking the practical action, from the things you actually do, not just think about doing.

    We've all seen those internet millionaires talking about how they only work 2 hours a day and still make oodles of cash each month.  And I am not debating that they do, but…what you're seeing is not the whole picture.

    If you don't have a team, or maybe you have a VA for a few hours a week, or you outsource projects here and there, it might be easy to look at that and think how is that even possible?

    And that is what we...

    I hear myself often telling my clients, start simple, get the foundations in place, and then add more.

    It's human nature to assume something we have never done is going to be hard, and I think at times this leads to the false assumption that it must be complicated.

    And when we haven't done something in our business before - maybe its create and launch a new program, set up your first evergreen funnel, run a webinar or 5 day e...

    I remember when I first started working full time after I graduated from university.

    I prided myself on how efficient I was, how much work I could get done, and how quickly I could get it done. I was always asking for more work, more projects.  

    I didn't realise it then, but I was trying to prove my worth by how efficient I was.

    I was looking for external validation, pats on the back, comments about how good I was.

    But I also got a...
