GGGB Intro 00:00
Coming up today on Guts, Grit & Great Business™…
Heather Pearce Campbell 00:04
Listening, the act of listening, is truly a gift. And not just to the person speaking, but to the listener. You get to go places when you listen that you do not get to go to, if you don’t. So what has been impactful to me over the course of these many episodes is how much and how deeply I appreciate someone after listening to their story and their wisdom for an hour.
GGGB Intro 00:36
The adventure of entrepreneurship and building a life and business you love, preferably at the same time is not for the faint of heart. That’s why Heather Pearce Campbell is bringing you a dose of guts, grit and great business stories that will inspire and motivate you to create what you want in your business and life. Welcome to the Guts, Grit & Great Business™ podcast where endurance is required. Now, here’s your host, The Legal Website Warrior®, Heather Pearce Campbell.
Heather Pearce Campbell 01:08
Alrighty, welcome. I am Heather Pearce Campbell, The Legal Website Warrior®. I’m an attorney and legal coach based here in Seattle, Washington, serving entrepreneurs throughout the US and the world. Welcome to a very special episode of Guts, Grit & Great Business™. So we just published our 100th episode this week. We’re just a couple months away from being two years in to Guts, Grit & Great Business™. And I’m just – it’s been such a fun journey, I wanted to pause and just take a moment in this episode, to reflect backwards a little bit on everything that we’ve been through, first of all, in the last couple of years, and on the variety of guests and amazing topics that we have had and covered on the podcast, as well as some things that I have learned personally on this journey. When I launched Guts, Grit & Great Business™, it was just a couple months after COVID hit. And when COVID was headed our way, I remember specifically being at a live event in February down in San Diego – so just down the coast – and thinking, like here are hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners all gathered together and nobody’s talking about, you know, this, this thing called COVID, that’s headed our way that I knew was going to have significant impact on the businesses that I served, the entrepreneurs that I work with day in and day out in my business, and the timing was ripe for me to launch a podcast anyways.
Heather Pearce Campbell 02:59
It actually happened that at that event, I met the gentlemen that ended up helping me launch this podcast. And my goal with Guts, Grit & Great Business™ was really to create conversations that would help entrepreneurs the type that I serve, develop a mindset and endurance that would keep them on their path, you know, and many already have this but along the way, I think most of us who have walked the path of entrepreneurship know how difficult it can be to remain there. And I really deeply deeply care that entrepreneurs and the folks that I serve, stay on the path and and stay committed to their mission of creating what it is that they want to in the world. And so that was really, you know, my my biggest goal with guts, grit and great business was to create meaningful, powerful conversations that would help keep people in the game, help them continue to walk the path of entrepreneurship continue to grow their business continue to be strategic and develop the mindset that’s required to really make strides and create a thriving small business. So here we are 100 episodes in and I thought I would just start off by sharing a handful of things that I have learned over the course of the first 100 episodes.
Heather Pearce Campbell 03:48
The first one is that sharing your message and your personal story changes lives. I’ve had numerous people reach out to me over the course of my podcasting journey and tell me specifically, you know, that episode really, you know, made me think differently about this specific thing or impacted the way that I feel about this particular relationship, or really has me thinking differently about this aspect of my business.
Heather Pearce Campbell 05:08
One example is I had my friend Elena Lipson on and we were talking, she’s an expert on self care. So we were talking about her expertise and the connection actually, between self care and our ability to connect to others in a really disconnected world. And it was an interesting part of the conversation where she was also talking about healing, essentially healing your present – healing, anything that you’re facing in the present, and how that can heal your past, whether it’s relationships, whether it’s, you know, looking at certain traumas that you’ve experienced and healing your relationship to that trauma.
Heather Pearce Campbell 05:54
And she shared a bit of a personal story involving her father who had passed away. And anyways, I out of the blue, I ended up hearing from one of my good friends from college that I have not been in touch with for years, I got a message from her through, I believe it was LinkedIn saying that episode really, really impacted me. And she had had a strained relationship with her mother, there’d been lots of history there, her mother had since passed, and just having this conversation about healing her present, and how that has the opportunity to heal our past as well. was exactly it was apparently what she needed to hear in, you know, at that time. And so, little stories like that, that add up to a lot of meaning for me.
Heather Pearce Campbell 06:50
The second thing that I learned on this journey is that listening, the act of listening is truly a gift. And not just to the person speaking, but to the listener, you get to go places when you listen that you do not get to go to if you don’t. So what has been impactful to me over the course of these many episodes is how much and how deeply I appreciate someone after listening to their story and their wisdom for an hour.
Heather Pearce Campbell 07:24
My my episodes are not short form episodes, right, some some podcasts really tailor to the folks that want to hear like a five or 10 minute, you know, little mini episode or even 20 minutes. And I intentionally set out to create conversations that run closer to an hour. My goal was to create an atmosphere where people feel like my listeners feel like they’re sitting down to more of a dinner conversation rather than like a quick, you know, demonstration or presentation from the stage. And so that’s been my goal. And it just means that I have a longer format to my episodes. But the joy in that, like I said is how much and how deeply I end up appreciating somebody after listening to them for that hour. And that obviously an hour is just the tip of the iceberg. None of us can share the full depths of our wisdom, or heartaches or grief or transformation, our business journeys, our expertise, right, none of it in an hour. So it’s really just little vignettes and little pieces that we get to hear. But it’s just a reminder to me and and hopefully for you as well, that the opportunities that we have, in the simple act of listening are significant. And really significant, I think when it comes to looking at how we create more connection in a disconnected world.
Heather Pearce Campbell 08:59
The third thing that I have really learned is that and obviously I love the topic of perseverance and grit. I mean, that’s probably obvious from the title of my podcast. And if you listened to any of my early episodes, because I did a little a small number of personal sorry, solo episodes, you got to hear about a bit of how my relationship to you know perseverance and grit has developed over the years and and while grit has so much to do with our mindset, right, our personal abilities to you know, make decisions that are tough decisions and to really stick through hard things. Grit is also – and perseverance is also – about resources and privilege. Right. So for folks with privilege, they generally have access to greater resources, which means that getting through some of the tougher times, is a more sustainable thing than if you’re an individual or a business without resources.
Heather Pearce Campbell 10:10
So we all need to be thinking about how we expand our circles of resources, our circles of influence are circles of connection, which in turn, help us to become more resource full, especially when times are lean. And there’s actually I led a workshop last year, called the LEAP lab, and I ran, I don’t know, 10, or a dozen women through it. And it was such a fun experiment. But one of the exercises I do, that I taught as part of that the LEAP lab, but I also do on my own is literally drawing in regards to any situation or any problem drawing a big circle on the page, putting the issue or the problem in the middle, like a little.in, the middle of that circle, and then identifying what’s inside my circle as far as reef resources, information, people, businesses, you know, tools that I already have, or maybe even programs or courses or podcasts, like, think wide and far about those resources and put them in the circle. And then what are some things that I need or that I don’t have that are outside of the circle, maybe even just one step removed, like I know somebody who has that particular resource, or I know somebody who knows someone with that particular expertise, right. And it’s, it’s just an interesting exercise to get a visual confirmation of truly how many resources we actually have within our circle, and how easily it is, with just a stepper to looking in the right direction to expand our reach our, our circle of influence of connection of resources again, so that we can become more resourceful. So just wanted to relate that particular topic to the concept of grit and perseverance, because, you know, it’s it really in these in these, what have been the last couple of years for many people, the toughest of times, having connections, having people that we can call on having resources that we can call on can be the difference between, you know, total and complete breakdowns or making it through.
Heather Pearce Campbell 12:35
The fifth, actually, sorry, I’m not going to skip ahead. The fourth thing, which is a little bit of a layering on, that I’ve learned is that connection, trumps everything, connection is just, it’s just the best thing, right? It is just number one on my list. And I have joked pretty steadily throughout COVID that the best thing for me to come out of COVID is my podcast, it’s been such a joy, to have a space where I get to show up and connect with other people thought leaders, experts in their industries that you know, it’s it’s just been such a joyful collaboration and co creation is so much fun.
Heather Pearce Campbell 13:19
So I’ll just invite you to think about that for a moment in regards to your own path, your own business, your own life, right? Where can you invite more co creation rather than, you know, be on a path of, of carrying it all yourself or feeling like there’s too much on your shoulders? Right? Where can you step in to co creating more than just individual creation. And then the other thing about co creation is that it can surprise you. So there have been some episodes on here that have surprised me. Right? So and I’ll name a couple that come to mind.
Heather Pearce Campbell 14:01
The the pod the episode on SEO to spirituality with my friend Stephan Spencer. Yeah, he’s an expert on SEO right. And I thought we were gonna get on and talk SEO and business and it ended up largely being a conversation about spirituality. And it was just so fun and so fascinating to dig into that topic with him. Or the the episode with with Marie history. Right. So Marie was a connection that I made, who was fascinating for many reasons. He originated in the tech space. He’s a musician, like longtime musician, and an entrepreneur. And so I was super thrilled to get Marie on to the podcast and that conversation. That’s the that’s the episode on grief. Right?
Heather Pearce Campbell 14:52
And if you Google any of these topics, and then just my podcast name gets great, great business. You will find the episodes really easily on Apple podcasts, maybe my website will come up, but it’s more likely to come up on Apple podcasts. So if if any of the episodes that I talked about here in this recap episode, you ended up being interested in just go to Google and search the title that I reference or the topic and then put in guts, great, great business, and you’re, you’re very likely to find it. Or, of course, you can message me, and I’m happy to point you in the right direction. But with Marie, you know, I thought we were going to be talking about entrepreneur entrepreneurship, and music and technology. And well, we did a bit of that. It ended up largely being a conference conversation about grief, and specifically about transforming grief into purpose. And as somebody who has walked with a lot of grief in my life, this was one that really hit home for me and was impactful, and just beautiful. I just love that episode. Marie is a phenomenal human being and I just I you know, I appreciate him for sharing his journey and his pain and, and helping the rest of us, you know, process ours a little bit better, and really, you know, use his message as a way to find purpose.
Heather Pearce Campbell 16:21
Another episode that surprised me actually was with my friend, Trevor Turnbull. And his he Trevor is a Canadian, he is truly truly a LinkedIn expert. He has helped people build out their businesses for years, using LinkedIn as a tool to systemize certain things. And, and here, I thought we were going to be having a conversation about LinkedIn, largely and systematization. And we ended up having a conversation about slowing down and kind of undoing everything else that we’ve been doing. It was like the the antidote to all of the systems and the hustling and streamlining, right. So that episode is called the messy buyer’s journey. And that was one of those fun surprises that came out of co creation, right?
Heather Pearce Campbell 17:14
Or the Demartini method, which is one of my more recent episodes with Dr. John Demartini. Right, I knew certain parts of his story and his message and but yet I was I was not expecting to hear about his experience of leaving home when he was 13 is a really challenging start to his life. And you look at it in the context of how he shares his story in that episode, and you see what a powerful foundation it was for change and development later for him and his life and what a powerhouse he is now, so if you want to hear about his story, many of his childhood circumstances, which, you know, really set him up for some challenges and how he has transformed every area of his life, and now, you know, spends nearly every day of the year supporting others with their transformation and their personal development. So he’s a human behavior specialists, one of the top human behavior specialists in the world. And that was just a couple episodes ago. So those were just some fun surprises, you know, just a few examples of ways that co creation is just so much fun.
Heather Pearce Campbell 18:35
The fifth thing that I’ve learned on this journey, or just that has been reinforced for me, is that consistency is key. Right? So just like anything else in life, you only get results with consistency. Whether it’s improving your health, right, gaining listenership in your, in your podcast, establishing trust with your audience, maybe you have an email newsletter, right? building an audience in the first place, or making progress of another kind in your business. So consistency, and the reality is that despite the intense time and pressure that COVID has placed on so many of us, it’s been an opportunity for me to show up more consistently in certain ways in my life than I ever have before. And with this podcast, it’s been a really obvious demonstration of what consistency can do for you. So we have steadily climbed the rankings here from launching just a few months after COVID hit us here in the US. We were actually ground zero here in Seattle. And I launched with just three episodes under my belt to now you know, we’re so we ranked within the top 5% of podcasts in the world within 9 months of launching, and now we’re in the top 3% of podcasts worldwide. And even the difference between those two percentage points is really significant. I mean, you’re talking, you know, I think maybe hundreds of 1000s of podcasts. So that still leaves us plenty of room to climb.
Heather Pearce Campbell 20:19
But I have just been so excited about the progress that consistency brings. And this was not something that I expected, not even within the first couple of years of launching, I know some folks launch a podcast and it gets some great coverage or dramatic listenership, and, you know, makes it onto some of the big rankings. And for me, I really just wanted to create a resource in the marketplace that serves a very specific subset of entrepreneurs. And so I hope that I either have done or am doing that, and that we continue to do great things. And I do see this as a project of co creation with all of my fabulous guests, and the phenomenal experts that I bring on here to share their journey, their knowledge, their resources. So that was number five, consistency.
Heather Pearce Campbell 21:13
Number six are the systems matter, and make everything easier. So the only way I could launch a podcast in the middle of COVID, with both my children at home full time, and keep it going and enjoy it not have it be a stressor, but have it be a joy is with systems. So my systems were designed and put in place before he ever launched, which means that I just have to show up and you know, work my portion of the system, and I have, you know, people that work other portions of the system. But this has been such a project of joy. And it’s entirely because it’s built on systems. So I just had to make a little, little, I had to put a little plug in for systems, so relevant to our businesses, right, everything else that we do.
Heather Pearce Campbell 22:05
And then the final point is that the final really learning and take away is truly that some people do just have more challenging lives, you know, in hours and hours and hours and hours of listening to these experts and individuals share their life stories. And I realized that, again, it’s the tip of the iceberg. We’re not hearing every part of somebody’s life journey. But some people really just do have more challenges to overcome in their personal life or their business. And that’s not to have you feeling disheartened. If you feel like you’re one of those people. I I feel like in some ways, I’m one of those people, there have been lots of challenges some extreme in my life. And, you know, it’s not a game of comparison, there’s so many people that have had all kinds of challenges. But what it also means for those people, and it’s been demonstrated through many of these conversations is that they also have their their potential for transformation. And their ability to help others transform is that much more dramatic. So there’s a lot of hope in our challenges. I guess that’s how I ended up feeling is that there is a lot of hope, in our challenges. And hopefully these conversations have helped you or will continue to help you in working through challenges that you face, whether it’s on the personal side of life or in your business, on the path of entrepreneurship.
Heather Pearce Campbell 23:45
Already, there’s a gazillion other things that we could cover. Those are what made my top seven list – my top seven takeaways. I want to briefly touch on some of the topics that we have covered on this podcast. It is oh my gosh, it’s just been so fascinating and such a joy to look backwards on everything that has been discussed and and covered so far on Guts, Grit & Great Business™. So we have talked about sales, sales processes, sales training, authentic selling and recognizing buying signals, unlocking the sales game, high converting sales messages, the importance of knowing your customer and being a go giver. Right? That’s all sales related. We’ve talked about marketing, developing your core message, your brand voice, the anti funnel, right, the anti funnel, which I loved, marketing with heart, not hype, using chatbots in your marketing, creating a one of a kind message and a movement with your message. Hidden hidden marketing assets in your business and
Heather Pearce Campbell 24:59
And of course, my favorite LinkedIn marketing. So tons even within these major categories, right tons of sub topics within them. And by the way, as a reminder, if you want to go back and listen to any of these episodes on these particular topics, just do a Google search on the topic and guts grit, great business, you’re very likely to find the right episode.
Heather Pearce Campbell 25:24
We’ve talked about developing a personal brand, right, I support a ton of experts in the entrepreneurial space. And so developing a personal brand is really key for a lot of people who are on that path. Creativity, I love, love, love the topic of creativity. And so we had an episode that spoke specifically on creativity and entrepreneurship, the client journey, how to create a successful client journey and embracing the messy buyers journey. We have talked about money and finances, how to make more money, how to build personal wealth on any income, fixing your business, finances, creating a financial life that reflects your true values, inherited financial psychology, and achieving financial freedom with money grit. That one was a conversation actually with one of my clients and one of my very favorite people. Karen McCall, who is I’m pretty sure she turns 80 in her on her next birthday, and she here she is, building out another business walking the path of entrepreneurship with so much success and joy. And I just I love her story. So many of the stories I love. We have talked about relationships and relationship building, the power of connecting and connection, how to use jayvees, as well as intergenerational communication. Right. That was a fascinating one, actually, with another Karen – intergenerational communication, she, I loved that topic. And I think so many of us can benefit from thinking about communication with that in mind.
Heather Pearce Campbell 27:14
I had a conversation about finding right fit employees, how critical this is for small businesses that don’t have the budget or time to waste on doing things wrong. So finding the right fit employees is essential. We have spoken about tech, right technology and tech troubles and business systems. We’ve talked about startup law and fundraising for entrepreneurs, such a critical topic for folks that are in the startup space. Right and for entrepreneurs to to know their options, whether they should be thinking about funding or, or what type of funding. So then that was with one of my favorite people, a local attorney, Paul, who I just adore and he was generous enough to come on and share his brilliance here. So if you’re interested in that, go check up the one check out the one on startup law in fundraising. We of course have talked about mindset, right and and including mindset as it relates to law of attraction.
Heather Pearce Campbell 28:19
Check out the episode why you don’t have what you want and how to get it with my friend and client Lana Shlafer. Such a fun episode. We had a conversation on how to stop overthinking change so you can thrive right, tons of mindset woven. And by the way, as a reminder, these are the very top level topics. Within each of these conversations. We touch on numerous numerous sub topics. We have discussed leadership, including perspectives on long term leadership influence what it means to have long term leadership influence, as well as evolving from founder to CEO. And on the topic of leaders of transformation, specifically leaders who are creating transformation within their clients, their communities, their businesses. We’ve talked about mentorship about accountability. That was another one that surprised me, check out the episode with Sam Silverstein, where we talk all about accountability and what accountability actually means. We have also talked about publicity and how whether you like it or not, it is always happening. So that was an episode with Joe Lublin. Definitely worth checking out. We’ve talked about what experts need to know about writing and publishing a book. We’ve talked about speaking and the importance of creating a powerful bio that was with my friend and my friend Nancy Jeutten really wonderful episode. We have spoken about burnout and growth on the podcast of course we have – we launched during COVID and we kept going during COVID. And here we are just passing our 100th episode. But burnout and and growth without burnout such a such an important topic, right how to shift towards sustainability, the dangers of compounding pressure and how to stop hustling, right? Those are all related to, to burnout, but all different episodes that we’ve had on here, we’ve talked about consulting and coaching, about how to use retreats in support of your business, about online courses and course building and using remote and online learning to transform clients lives. Right, one of my guests talked about how, as a swim coach, she took her business entirely online, a swim coach, right, that sounds impossible. No, it’s not. And how she not only you know was able to do it, but to build in some amazing additional transformation.
Heather Pearce Campbell 31:03
We have spoken about mastery, the concept of mastery, this was with my friend and former mastermind partner, Ellen Chong, Dr. Ellen Chong. And it was a really wonderful, insightful conversation about mastery and bringing a heart centered approach to your business, already mentioned the episode about self care with my friend Elena Lipson, self care for compassion and connection in unprecedented times. That was a fabulous conversation as well. We have spoken about power tribes and igniting your champions, right. These are all about community, creating community and calling on community. We’ve spoken about health and achieving personal excellence, right, we kicked off. We kicked off last year with this topic, achieving personal excellence with actually two back to back episodes, it was such a fun and long conversation, which I loved, so many of us needed to hear it right. And that was so much fun. That was with my friend Eric, definitely worth checking out. I love the topic of achieving personal excellence. We spoke about feeling better in your body. This was with Hadley Garrison, achieving a flow state in your work, changing your space for radical change in life and business and how to stop suffering for success. We have talked about visibility, the importance of visibility, and vulnerability. This was a beautiful conversation and actually with a friend of mine who now supports people in landing spots on ideal podcast for them. So she’s all about helping people get visibility and, and be real show up authentically. Right. And she herself demonstrated that in our conversation on visibility and vulnerability. We also talked about growth strategies, creating unstoppable referrals, making your brand referral and engineered growth systems. We’ve talked about entrepreneurship as the key to creating your own destiny. This was a super fun conversation with Patrick snow used to be a local entrepreneur here in the Seattle area. And I think he now lives in Hawaii, author of several books, has, you know, done speaking for years around the world spoken to 1000s and 1000s of people.
Heather Pearce Campbell 33:38
And then we also spoke about resurrecting entrepreneurship and self reliance, right, some really similar themes. We had one of my favorite episodes was with my friend Paul’s Elizur on socially conscious entrepreneurship. Paul is brilliant, and coaches, people in the socially conscious space around creating businesses that really are reflections of their values. It’s a beautiful conversation and I’m such a fan of Paul. We had conversations about podcasting and podcast coaching, right so that was a fun conversation with Michael Neely. Definitely check it out if you’re interested in in podcasting yourself. We have had conversations about learning blocks and how they become professional blocks. As I already touched on, you know grief and transforming grief embracing pain to achieve your dreams. We even had a conversation on end of life care and beginning that very difficult conversation that was with my friend Maureen Kures and Maureen is just totally completely 100% Inside and out a beautiful person. If you are going to have a conversation about end of life care and starting that difficult conversation, whether it’s with a spouse or a family member or your aging parents, Maurine is who you want supporting you in that or at least being able to learn, learn from, like, like in the conversation that we had.
Heather Pearce Campbell 35:10
We, of course have talked a lot about personal development, you know, more the most recently, we had the Demartini method for ultimate freedom. That’s all about personal development. We’ve spoken about intuition and spirituality, right. So, again, check out that episode with Stephen Spencer. On spirituality, there was a really early episode that I did on intuition. That one still is one of my favorites, and I get a lot of feedback on it. We had an episode all about doing business your way that was with Kimber Luna.
Heather Pearce Campbell 35:49
Anyways, the list is long, I don’t even think this is all of them. But you can see what a range of topics within entrepreneurship that we’ve covered and my guests Oh, my guests, I love them all. They’ve been brilliant and giving their they’ve been so generous with their message and their time. A huge thank you to every single guests that we have had so far on the podcast. And by the way, the lineup is looking really good.
Heather Pearce Campbell 36:21
For the next coming episodes I’ve already got, well, we’re booking through, you know, later in the summer and fall. So we’ve got quite the pipeline. Before we sign off, I want to cover a couple of fun facts and then we’re going to wrap up with a series of questions. So here’s some fun facts, the top countries where my listenership is from, obviously the US number one, Canada Oh, Canada. Number two, of course, it’s Canada. I love Canadians.

But for now, it was really fun to find out what were the top 10 episodes so far based on download numbers. Number one was how to thrive the power of connecting this was with my friend Lou Diamond. Number two and I love all these conversations, folks, if you made this list congrats and if you didn’t guess what, every single one of you I adored hard conversation. But these were just kind of some fun surprising facts. Top tip number two was a really fun conversation that I had very early on in the podcast with my friend and a fellow member of of a mastermind I belong to Erik Luhrs.

Number six is engineered growth systems. And this was with Chris Goegan. Who doesn’t want engineered growth systems? That just sounds like it’s a thing that runs itself? Yes, please. Number seven startup law and fundraising for entrepreneurs. I’m so happy that my friend and fellow attorney Paul’s episode made the list. Of course it did. He’s brilliant and this is such a great episode. Number eight, creating a successful personal brand, also one of my favorite conversations and that was with Finca – another Canadian. And that was a really fun conversation about what it takes to create a personal brand. And I know we’ve got lots of folks in the space that I serve that are doing just that.

The next one we’ve touched on a couple times from grief, to purpose, the wisdom and gifts in transforming grief. And I don’t think it’s any coincidence, at least I tell myself that this is number nine. Nine is my all time favorite number. And this is with Murray Hidary. So that’s definitely one that was unexpected and tremendously beautiful. And then number 10 on the list for top episodes based on downloads is so fun. I love this one. This is the conversation with my friend Tandy Prior. I met Tandy through LinkedIn, which is one of the ways that I connect with a lot of new folks. And this episode was on changing your space for radical change in life and business. So quite a variety even in those top 10s. Right, from unleashing the dragon, to the anti funnel to embracing pain, course creation, engineered growth systems, startup law, I love that anything legal made it into the top 10 creating a successful personal brand, right grief, and then changing your space, your physical home or office space. So super fun.

And that what it reflects to me, which is what I already know is that all of these things, all of these areas are I think of it like a rope like they’re all braided together these these concepts, these stories and things that we get to learn in our own life and our own business that all wind together, they create a tapestry right of, of what our life and business look like. And the topics are wide, we have covered a lot in the context of this podcast. I’ve loved my guests, I literally have loved every minute with my guests, and I’m so grateful for those that have shown up helped contributed to creating what has now become 100 episodes of Guts, Grit & Great Business™. Now, as a final wrap up, I really just have a series of questions for you. So the first question is, you know, and this, this loops back around to the introductory points, the things that I’ve learned over the first 100 episodes, right.
Heather Pearce Campbell 42:48
The question number one is what stories from your life do you need to tell? Right? And it could be from your life or business, right, because even as business owners as entrepreneurs, we have important stories to tell in the way that we speak to our customers that we you know, distribute our messages and our mission through our marketing. So what stories from your life or your business do you need to tell? And who needs to hear it?
Heather Pearce Campbell 43:20
Number two, is where can you engage more as a listener in your life or business? Obviously, if you’re listening to this podcast, and you’ve stuck with me through 100 episodes, you’re probably a pretty good listener, because this is a long form podcast. But where as you look at your life or your business, where can you engage more as a listener in a way that will pay dividends?
Heather Pearce Campbell 43:47
Number three, how can you expand your circle of connection and resources, which in turn will help you with your future grit? Right, so go back to that circle exercise? How can you expand your circle of connection and resources?
Heather Pearce Campbell 44:04
Number four, where do you have an opportunity in your life to be more consistent in order to create a bigger impact? What is just one thing that calls to you on this point? Where can you be more consistent?
Heather Pearce Campbell 44:21
And number five, and this is my final question for you. What would you like to hear in the next 100 episodes, and it couldn’t be a topic that we’ve never talked about before? Or it could be more on a specific topic that we’ve already touched on or gotten close to? Right? So what would you like to hear in the next 100 episodes and if you’ve got ideas or special requests, email me at Heather [at] legalwebsitewarrior [dot] com and in exchange, I will gift you my Business Builder Acceleration Guide
Heather Pearce Campbell 45:00

And actually, you can do one of two things, you can provide an idea or feedback about what you would like to hear in the next 100 episodes.
