What is your business?

I am a Business Coach for Female Entrepreneurs.

How did you start?

I started out in the network marketing industry after realising the 9-5 grind wasn’t for me. I realised I loved mentoring women far more than selling products, and so I shifted into coaching

What are the benefits of social media for your business?

Social Media is where I do all of my business right now. I have a website but it’s mainly there for credibility purposes. I do 100% of my marketing and connecting via social media.

Who is your business inspiration?

I have many, my first inspirations came from my family. My dad runs a successful trade business and seeing the freedom and income he built was definitely inspiring. My granddad ran a coal business, so I guess it’s in my blood. Even my little brother (he’s 16), buys and sells clothing online.

Who’s Instagram account are you obsessed with?

Oh gosh, so many. For business, i love Jenna Kutchers account. The aesthetic just lights up my soul and her content is super inspiring.

Tell us 3 funny facts about you?

I’m allergic to pretty much everything (including the color blue) I have a unicorn obsession but I don’t voice it because I loved them before they were cool My name in French means “half” so i was coined with the name “half price” in school.

If you don’t have a ‘switch off’evening routine. Then you’re doing it wrong!!

If you don’t have a ‘switch off’evening routine. Then you’re doing it wrong!!

I’m not about to pretend that I am a expert and being super chill and I’m certainly an expert in rushing, hustling and over doing it.

Running a business is hectic and eventually we burn out. Then your mind just feels like it’s going to explode.

Am I right? Of course I am.

I am all about being mellowed out in the evenings and I have no crested a list of things that I do to ensure that I can take a chill pill and switch off.

I know not everyone will have the same lifestyle and we will all have different ways of implementing things. I get that, I have two kids that are hectic AF. Sometimes I don’t even get to sit down until 10pm and then I ain’t about anything but sleep mode.

But just for the sake of me writing this blog, here are some great ways to create a relaxing evening for you!

  1. Switch off your phone or put it on DO NOT DISTURB. Shocking I know. But sometimes you need to step away and stop putting others first. You deserve to take a break. Your clients should and will respect your time if you do.
  2. No TV or news before bed. I actually stay far away from the news. To be honest, it messes with my anxiety. Try and stay away from the box at least an hour before bed.
  3. Read at least 1 Chapter of your book. Just think, no phones, no TV. We would actually have time to do the old school things such as reading. Even better if it’s an actual book and not on Technical device. If you are more fancy and reading on devices then dim the light!!
  4. Mediation! I never used to be able to mediate. But now it’s one my favourite things to do. We will all have our own way of mediation’s. you have to find what works for you. Just as little of 5 minutes of complete peace and quiet will do your mind and soul wonders.
  5. Journalling, let everything from the day out on paper. Once it’s all out you can forget our it and move on. Try gratitude journaling but recording 5 things you are grateful for in your life from that day.
  6. Light candles and incense. This is the woo woo girl in me but there is nothing better for me than having my candles burning, salt lamp on and some amazing incense. Literally lights me up and takes me to a place of calmness.

Have a calming evening routine set up for yourself is such a great self care practice and in my opinion shouldn’t be negotiable. You will wake up feeling ready, refreshed and inspired to take on your day.

Boss Ladies – Read these books!

Boss Ladies – Read these books!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE books. My collection has gotten way out of hand. To the point where I have had to with great sorrow make my collection smaller ( I blame my fiance).

Other than the usual genre of books that we all love (Yes, I love Nicolas Sparks and NO I am not ashamed), I am also obsessed with self development and business books.

So, I figured that I might as well share what my faves are in-case there are more book junkies out there looking for some new inspo.

I have chosen a few that I believe are amazing for the lady boss babes out there.

You Are A Badass – Jen Sincero

15+Of+The+Best+Business+Books+for+Female+Entrepreneurs+++www.oliviabossert

I think by now, everyone has heard of this book. If you haven’t I would suggest coming out from that rock and getting a hold of a copy on the ASAP. Jen has a wicked sense of humor, super chilled way of looking at life and her hippy mentality is a big win for me. This booked is super motivating, empowering and I highly recommend it.

This is Jen’s follow up book and if you suck at money and have a shit mindset regarding the coin then this is another great one for you.

Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert

I LOVED this book. It was so different to all the other business related books that I have read. If you loved her book Eat Prey Love (another one you should read) then I truly think you will love this one.

Who Says You Can’t, You Do – Daniel Chidiac

9780525573616

It took me a while to actually read this one, but once I started I finished it within two days. It is straight to the point, enlightening and will make you look at things from different angles. If you have a mindset of ‘I can’t’ then you need to read this.

Little Black Book – Otegha Uwagba

15+Of+The+Best+Business+Books+for+Female+Entrepreneurs+++www.oliviabossert (2)

AHHH! This is such a cute book. You can read this baby within a day! It is packed full of amazing info from managing money, writing up contracts and even links to websites for the creative boss babes to get sourced out.

Unf**k Yourself – Gary John Bishop 

41HAaBdPbgL._SX309_BO1,204,203,200_

If you like self help without the bullshit then this book is GREAT.

Jab Jab Jab Right Hook – Gary Vaynerchuk

61eRCiTDr7L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_

Crushing It –  Gary Vaynerchuk

Mandatory reading for all business people in my opinion.

Daring and Disruptive – Lisa Messenger

xdaring-and-disruptive.jpg.pagespeed.ic.jW3UPzTPQO

I think Lisa is super badass and love her honest and inspiring journey in the entrepreneur world.

I mean..I could seriously add like 20 more books. But these ones really left some kind of “holy feck” affect on my brain.

Would love to hear your recommendations. Send me a comment or come hang with me on the The Gram  .

Until next time,

Overcome Fear & Get Yourself Out There

Overcome Fear & Get Yourself Out There

The biggest thing that we all have when we start a business is FEAR.

How do we put ourselves out there and show what we can do without pooping our pants in fear.

I totally get it. Holy SHIT do I get it. It took me forever and a day to get my shit together and just know that I was good enough to be able to get out there and be like “hey, I can help you!”.

Know that you are NOT alone in the fear.

Know that all those Entrepreneurs and Biz Women out there have felt the fear too. And chances are, they probably still do. I know that I do. But you learn to cope with you and own it anyway.

So how can you get over the fear?

  •  Baby Steps!

Launching your business is HUGE and you can really feel it too. It can be overwhelming. So, what you need to do is break down everything into small baby steps. Make sure each step has a actionable tasks and do it bit by bit. Commit to taking a step or two each day and then you wont feel like you are getting buried in the overwhelm.

  • What are you afraid of?

Journal!!! Write out everything that you are afraid of, next to it write out what the worst thing that can happen from it. Are you scared of judgment? Scared of being rejected? Losing money? Really sit and think what is the worse result that can come of it if you put yourself out there. What are the chances are these scenarios actually happening? I’m going with slim pickins.

  • Just be you

There is this new word that is trend going around in the business world. Which is just being ‘Authentic’. Find ways where you just put yourself out there by just being you. Share on social media, write a blog, do a video. Whatever represents YOU and putting yourself out there. DO THAT.

  • Get a support team

No one should or wants to do this business gig alone. Join Facebook groups , hire a coach, get your friends and family on the support wagon. They will be there to encourage you, pick you up when you fall, help you face that fears and cheer you own when you smash it!

  • Fix your marketing mindset

You are giving VALUE. You are not pestering or being a cheesy salesman. It is scary as hell to reach out to people, but you have to know that you are offering a valuable service and you can HELP those people. It’s not like you are going around asking for money with nothing in return. You are helping them thrive in their business.

  • What is the diff. between FEAR and Intuition

Even though you feel like you are going to poop your pants with fear, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Some of the most amazing things are hidden behind the fear. Feeling uncomfortable is part of growing and up leveling in your business. If you feel like you are going to puke and your stomach is just saying HELL NO then chances are that is your intuition telling you not to go there. Learn to know the difference and know that it is normal and a good thing to feel a little uncomfortable.

You know that saying…. FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY.

Some books that I highly recommend for you to read!!

You Are A Badass – Jen Sincero

Who Says You Can’t? You Do- Daniel Chidiac

Rise Sister Rise- Rebecca Campbell

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck- Mark Manson

Crushing It- Gary Vaynerchuk

 

 

 

 

 

What is a Virtual Assistant

What is a Virtual Assistant

You see the word Virtual Assistant being thrown around but you don’t know much about it right?

Working as a VA can be an amazing way to build your dream lifestyle. You get to set your own hours, work in your PJ’s and don’t even have to wear a bra! WOO. I LOVE working as a VA with so many beautiful badass business women from Naturopaths, Clairvoyants, Gym Owners, Online Coaches and women building their own empires.

So what is the benefits of working with a VA?

VA’s can take over the tasks that the clients don’t have time to do, don’t enjoy or lack the experience in. They can then build their business and continue to do the things that light their soul on fire.

VA’s are independent contractors, not employees. This means that clients don’t have to pay for taxes, training and the best part is that everything they get their VA to do they can claim as a business expense. WINNING!

What can a VA do?
