    05/11/2020 Duração: 41min

    One of the toughest decisions, when you work for yourself, is deciding when you should PUSH THROUGH and when you should PULL BACK. In this episode, we share our experiences of times when we had to push a bit harder to meet a deadline or finish a project. We also share times when we pulled back to ensure we took care of our mental health (and our future selves). We hope the MMM & Enough Number exercise toward the end really helps you know when to push through and when to pull back!**More goodies from us:If you want un-boring business advice every Monday, jump on our weekly email newsletter  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our easy-to-use and friendly course platform - teachery.co

  • 059 - Calm businesses

    059 - "Calm businesses"

    08/10/2020 Duração: 44min

    For years we've been trying to get off the treadmill of "running our businesses" and trying to focus on slowing down, having less stress, and running... calm businesses.The idea of a calm business is to ask our recurring question, what is it all for? What are all the long hours and late nights for if they never end? In this episode, we share our philosophy on slowing way down, focusing on enough, and making sure our businesses don't run our lives. We hope you can do the same thing based on some of the ideas we share!**More goodies from us:

    057 - The 5-step business process we use all the time

    24/09/2020 Duração: 01h04min

    For years we didn't have a process to help us understand the most important things to focus on in our businesses. We would jump from working on the product, to marketing, then to our ideal customer avatar, then think about our email content strategy, and it was just a hot mess (maybe you can relate??)Last year, we finally sat down and wrote out a process that could help us and YOU work on your business in a specific order that made the most sense. This became our 5-Step Business Checklist and we break it down in detail in this podcast episode - WOOT!You can see the checklist in action on our site: wanderingaimfully.com/checklist**More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co

    056 - Shit sandwiches

    17/09/2020 Duração: 40min

    Mark Manson wrote a quote that we learned about from Liz Gilbert in her book, Big Magic. The quote is, “everything sucks, some of the time. You just have to decide what sort of suckage you’re willing to deal with. The question is not so much “what are you passionate about?” The real question is "what are you passionate enough about that you can endure the most disagreeable aspects of the work?”In this episode, we're going to dive deep into what it means to have to eat a shit sandwich.  Because, as you'll hear, we all have to eat these awful sandwiches in our businesses and lives, no matter what.**More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co

    055 - What brings you purpose every day?

    10/09/2020 Duração: 37min

    If you're like us, you can find yourself feeling stuck in the daily slog of work. But what if you reframed the work you were doing? What if you asked yourself during every task... what is it all for? Could the majority of the work you do become less of a burden and more of a purpose in your life? In this episode, we explore the idea of purpose when it comes to work. Is it important? Is it different for everyone (spoiler: YES)? We also navigate the idea of retirement and how we think about the concept of it when you work for yourself. Are we too consumed by our work? Could having a purpose make us feel more in control? Let's find out in this ep!**More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co

    054 - How have our fears changed over time?

    03/09/2020 Duração: 54min

    From working with clients, to selling our first digital products, to running software companies, and then building a membership community, we've experienced all sorts of fears along the way. This week, we wanted to share our fears with you in case you're on a similar part of your journey and want to hear how we dealt with the bumps in the road you might be experiencing too.Imposter syndrome and self-doubt are real, folks. There's no amount of hustle, hard work, or previous success that can help you avoid thinking negative thoughts.We also touch on our biggest personal fears toward the end of the episode as well as what we fear most about the other person (get ready for a LOL or two!) **More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co Enjoying the new version of our podcast?

    053 - Should you switch from product launches to a membership?

    27/08/2020 Duração: 01h01min

    As online business owners, we tend to think the grass is always greener. Specifically for this episode, we want to talk about the green-ness of the grass when it comes to product launches (online courses, ebooks, etc) versus running a membership program (a community with monthly payments). We've spent the past decade selling things in all different kinds of formats and we're here to share EVERYTHING we've learned as well as which direction you should go if you're on the fence. We'll talk about why we shifted our business to a membership community, the ups and downs of it, what you need to look out for, and our "Prius" (hybrid) model we're using moving forward with Wandering Aimfully. **More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co Don't rate

    052 - Do we need social media?

    20/08/2020 Duração: 53min

    We've been heavy social media users since Jason ran his IWearYourShirt project all the way back in 2008 (which is basically an entirely different millennium in the Internet age). Since that time we've realized the negative toll being on social media can take. In this episode, we explore if we're going to continue using social media at all moving forward. We also share our thoughts on if social media makes sense for new online business owners or existing biz owners who might be wondering... what is it all for? when it comes to social media. So, let's answer the question (or try to): Do we need social media?  **More goodies from us:Get our weekly emails on Monday morning  - wanderingaimfully.com/newsletterBuild and sell your online course using our course platform - teachery.co Don't rate our show, especially not 5 stars.

    051 - Announcing: What is it all for? (new show name!)

    12/08/2020 Duração: 36min

    After two years of recording our podcast as "Wandering Aimfully: The Show" we've decided to switch gears a bit on the name and the focus. In this episode, we share our journey with this podcast and discuss what the new name (What is it all for?) means.Every week on Thursdays we hope to visit your earballs with an honest, thoughtful, and maybe even sometimes uncomfortable conversation about what's going on in our lives (which might also be going on in your life too!) The goal with this podcast is not for us to pretend to be two people living perfect lives, but two people navigating their way through life, bumping into the walls, and learning tons of lessons along the way. #curiositycornerWe hope you enjoy this first episode of the new direction of our show!

    We've thoroughly enjoyed wandering aimfully through the past 50 episodes of this podcast. There was no real plan with our show other than to share how we bumped into the walls of business and life. After two years, we're excited for a NEW chapter of our podcast! While, the crux of the podcast will be the same (it's just us, Caroline and Jason Zook), we feel there's a better name for this podcast and a more focused idea for the content we'll bring to your ears each week. More on that on August 17!We want to thank you for being part of the first "phase" of this podcast/show. Here's to a new chapter!

    One of the biggest things that are helping us navigate getting ready to do a launch of our Un-Boring Group Coaching program (this will be our FINAL enrollment for the year) is the subtle mindset shift of "we're pushing our launch on someone" to "we're offering our launch to the right person." If you're feeling uncomfortable about selling right now, maybe that shift can help you?We also break down the next steps we're taking for our launch: Creating an affiliate program for our current members and giving them all the information possible to help them succeed. As well as getting all our sales emails, social media content (QuarCon), and plans in place so that our launch has a sense of ease about it when the time comes.Caroline shares a big mental repositioning as it relates to working during this pandemic. Oddly enough, the pressure of something looming larger has removed the normal heightened pressure of work. Are you feeling any of that? If our episode got you excited about our final enrollment of our coaching
