The Hard Stuff with Michelle Knight on the Free to Be Podcast including how to deal with grief, goal setting for 2019, top tips for business, top tips for life, perfectionism and lessons learned | Michelle Knight

In today’s episode, I’m sharing The Hard Stuff from 2018. As we prepare for the year ahead it’s important to me that I’m fully transparent with you in the hopes it will help you in feeling seen, heard and understood.

2018 was a very difficult year, but it’s taught me some of the most important lessons that I will carry with me in the year ahead. It is my personal hope that 2019 brings more transparency in branding through the power of storytelling, and I’m starting right here with this episode.


Things I talk about in this episode:

↠ How my year started and the role it played in my business.
↠ Dealing with grief as an entrepreneur, mother, wife and woman.
↠ How my perfectionism challenged me in 2018 with the hiring of team and expanding my brand.
↠ One of the biggest mistakes I made in my business.
↠ My top tips for consistently growing in life and business.
↠ Removing the shame and guilt we feel as women.
↠ The single biggest lesson that keeps smacking me in the face.
↠ My goal for this brand in 2019!

Free to Be Podcast | Episode 12

Episode 12 Free to Be Podcast Planning Tips for 2019 | Plan with me for 2019, planning tips, 2019 resolutions, 2019 planning ideas | Michelle Knight

Today’s episode is a little impromptu because I think it’s needed! I’ve been watching so many entrepreneurs over the past year fly by the seat of their pants, and while I see incredible value in leading with inspiration, I also see too many entrepreneurs taking action from a place of desperation. My secret to avoiding this has always been planning.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing how you can plan for 2019 starting today and set yourself up for major success in the new year.

Things we talk about in this episode:

↠ How to start taking your shit seriously
↠ What made the biggest difference when I started my business
↠ How to avoid the entrepreneur end of the year trap
↠ The exact four-phase process I use to plan for the year ahead
↠ The exact questions I ask myself when planning for the year ahead

Speaking of planning, don’t forget the doors are now open to my signature program Roadmap to Freedom, but are closing soon! Roadmap to Freedom is my 6-month LIVE group program for the new female entrepreneur who is ready to launch an online business that allows her to make money on her own terms.

It's for the woman who is tired of just guessing at creating her profitable business and wants to seriously start making sh*t happen!

This program was designed to give you the COMPLETE roadmap, to remove the feeling of overwhelm and give you the support and accountability from someone who has been exactly where you are now so you can dig deeper than you could ever do on your own.

Learn more here: brandmerry.com/freedom

Questions from today’s episode:

Reflection:

  • What worked for you in 2018?

  • What didn’t light you up or excited you?

  • What did you accomplish or celebrate in 2018?

  • Based on 2018, what’s on top of mind for 2019?

  • What will you create or release in 2019?

Dreaming:

  • Visualize what you are doing in 10 years.

  • Why do you want it?

  • What action can you take in 2019, that will get you closer to your goal?

Planning:

  • Where do you want to be by the end of 2019?

  • How does that make you feel?

  • How does this contribute to your 10-year vision?

  • Now break down your main steps to get there into quarterly plans.

First 90 Days:

  • What is your #1 focus for the year ahead?

  • Decide on your Big 3 for the first 90 days.
