The Jennifer Allwood Show

Welcome to my podcast where I help creative business owners, like you, answer these questions and learn to build an online business using their God-given talents. Each week I share topics that will help you learn how to build an audience to sell your knowledge and creative products. I bring in business experts to share their invaluable insight, wisdom and best business tactics, and we talk about how to apply this to your creative business. We discuss how to overcome and be aware of mindset challenges that creative business owners usually face. We talk about effective ways to brand, market, price and scale your business so you can reach more clients, make more money and work less. And there is so much to share with you! I grew my local Kansas City decorative painting business to a 7-figure online brand and it's my heart's desire to help, empower and encourage other creatives! I know what you're going through as a creative business owner and you are not alone. I want to help you share your gifts, run a successful business and become an expert in your industry. You don't have to be miserable in a 9-to-5. You don't have to fall for the starving artist lie. You can make money with your passions. You don't have to be the best in the industry, you just have to know how to out market your competitors.

There are 3 main reasons people get stuck in their lives and I have to tell you none of them are worth it. Today I want to talk more about being stuck, why it is happening, and what to do to break free and move on. when a car gets stuck in the mud, what do you do to get it out? You have to get some traction and start some motion. It is the same for you and me. We are not meant to be stuck, not doing what we are called to do!

So it turns out all those cliches like "Rome wasn't built in a day" and "You have to eat an elephant one bite at a time" are more than just cute sayings on a fortune cookie! Whatever big, hard, and scary thing you want to do, start by doing one thing today. What is one bite you can take? What is one step you can accomplish to move you in the direction you want to go? You don't have to see the whole picture or know all the things. Instead, just do the next right thing and keep repeating that!

So Instagram announced that they were taking away the likes...Now what? Well friends, for the most part, I could care less. Let's talk today about why Instagram is saying they are removing the likes and what I think the real reason is. As a mom, I am glad to remove that number as a way for my kids to find value and as a business owner, I have always known that number wasn't the most important metric all along. This is a great topic so let's dive in!

Key Takeaways

  1. You need to diversify. All social media will constantly change. You need to be ready for anything, learning constantly, and super flexible. Don't put all your eggs in just one social media basket.
  2. Have more than one way to make money online. You can go to jenniferallwood.com/quiz to take a quiz to find out what other revenue streams would be great for your business.

Some relationships you are in may be toxic, while others just may be coming to the end of their season. People are meant to be in your life for a season, a reason, or a lifetime. Do you have some relationships that are holding you back? You might have people in your life that are not ready to go with you where you are headed. Let's talk just a few minutes about looking at your relationships especially if you are moving a new direction or starting something new.

I recently closed down one of the revenue streams in my business that was making six figures! You may be thinking I am crazy, but what I know to be true is that when God tells me to do something, I need to be obedient—no matter what. My Paint Finish of the Month membership group was a lucrative part of my business for almost 5 years. In this episode I want to share all about it and why we closed the doors. Have you ever had something you were holding on to but was just not who you were anymore? Let's talk about it.

I was just talking some ladies that I coach and I had 2 different conversations about hiring help. After doing some digging, we figured out their issues. What I have found is that most often our hangups about hiring have more to do with us than the person we may hire. There are several reasons people hesitate when it comes to getting some help—they are probably not what you think. Listen in as I tell you what I think about getting some help in your business!

The is one of those times when I am going to hug with my words and also kick you in the butt a little too. I have women tell me all the time that they just need someone to push them. You shouldn't need someone to push you, instead, you need to act out of obedience and conviction. Self-governing, self-starting, and self-motivating—these do not come from others nagging you to do what you need to do. Listen in as I share 4 keys to finding motivation!

A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to do something big, hard, and scary, and for someone who usually really watches her words, I kept saying how scared I was. I was quickly reminded to change my words to speak about how invigorating it was. My whole attitude changed. It is amazing the difference in mindset you can have when you do things like change your words. Listen in as I talk about other things you can do to have a courageous mindset when you are attempting big, hard, scary things!

I love the concept of leaving the ladder down—meaning leave a path for those behind you to follow in your success. As women, I think it is so important that we cheer each other on, help each other achieve big dreams, and teach each other what we have already learned. Not only should you be a mentor to others, but you should also seek out a mentor. It is a beautiful, biblical practice that includes mentorship, discipleship, and legacy-building!

What story do you have that plays in your head that may be totally wrong? Are you willing to challenge your thinking, try something new or different, and see if it results in a new mindset? For my entire life, I thought I was someone who couldn't wear heels. My mom didn't wear heels, I never tried them, I just thought they were not for me...until my Equipped conference last year. I was challenged to give them a try and now I LOVE heels! The heels represent something much bigger. Listen in as we dig deeper into false mindsets.

This week is a big dose of encouragement. You may have this idea of how you want to meet with God. Maybe it involves coffee, a fire, a beautiful view—a totally Instragramable moment. And if you can't achieve that then you feel discouraged or don't even try. God just wants a relationship with you! And that will look different in the various seasons of your life. Find ways to give God what you can. Give Him something to work with so He can teach you and mold you and use you!

Fear is a feeling given to us by God to help keep us safe in certain situations. Fear is NOT an excuse to not do the thing that we know darn good and well we should be doing. Do a Facebook live, sign up for a 5K, quit the job, write the email, make the ask! You don’t need to get past your fear. Instead, process the feeling and then move on and do the thing! Listen as I talk about not letting fear be the boss of you!

Friends, think of all the things we teach our kids—sports, school subjects, driving, dancing, acting, and on and on. Often times we pay good money for others to teach our kids all kinds of skills. Today I want to make sure we are teaching the next generation how to have courage and be obedient and the best way to do it to lead by example! Our children and generations to come will be transformed if they can start their lives knowing the importance of being courageous and how to be obedient. So let's model this for all children in our path!

There are so many numbers being shared all over the internet by entrepreneurs. Today I want to talk about the truth behind a lot of the numbers you hear and what numbers really matter. People talk about how many followers they have or how much they just made on a launch. But they don't tell you the truth like the fact that maybe they have horrible reach and engagement or that their expenses where ridiculous so they only kept 25% of launch income. Using big numbers in a vanity matrix truly does nothing for your business or your followers and potential clients. Let's talk more about the numbers we should be concerned with!

If you are waiting for the perfect time, the perfect situation, the perfect anything, it is never going to happen! I love you enough to tell you this. What you are really doing waiting because you are scared. And the thing you are holding on to instead putting out into the world is likely something that someone else needs. And by you holding on to it you are preventing them from being able to move forward. Listen in as I break this down!

Fostering, adopting, or taking in a kid in need is hard and rewarding and a blessing and sanctifying and so much more. It brings so many emotions and situations that you have to learn to navigate. Rebekah Lyons and Edie Wadsworth are two amazing women who have been navigating life with a bonus kid and are rocking it! The 3 of us have all added a young child to our families in the last year and talking to them for this episode was like a therapy session for me! Their stories are beautiful and their perspective and advice are inspiring. Listen in as we talk with vulnerability and share our stories. My prayer is that this episode encourages all who listen!

Would you love a big dose of momentum in your business? Are you ready for where that momentum could take you? Momentum is the combination of speed and force and can be responsible for big things happening. However, you can't buy it or orchestrate it. You, instead, must pray and prepare for it! Then when it comes you have to be ready to go where it takes you. Listen in as I talk more about momentum in business!!!

Sweet Ari has been with us for one year! What started out as a sleepover has turned into a life-changing event for our whole family. On this week's podcast, Mr. Magic and I sat down to share how we have navigated taking in a child that comes from hard places. We talk about what we have learned, what we wish we knew, and what the future holds. Please share this episode with anyone who has fostered or adopted or taken in a bonus kid or maybe just considered doing one of these things. It has for sure not been an easy road for us, but it has been so worth it!!!

There is a lot of talk these days about "the universe" and a "higher power.” This trend is a way for some entrepreneurs to appeal to more people. But listen, friends, we are not called to be all things to all people. Instead, be 100% honest about who you are and what you believe. Don’t afraid or ashamed and don’t water it down. Listen in as we discuss this more! I also have a challenge for you this week. Report back and let me know what you think!

Social media has made growing a business online easier than ever before. But if you want social media to serve you well, you have to have a certain level of vulnerability in your posts and on your feed. I know it is scary. I know some of you hide behind your products and business because you are fearful of what will happen when you put yourself out there. Spoiler alert—you will get negative feedback and of course it will hurt and upset you! BUT you will also get a larger following, devoted fans, and so much more in return. Lots talk more about...

Last week something happened…I was triggered by a Facebook comment. AND I took the bait and replied! Guys, I know better, but this is a lesson I still sometimes have to revisit and I bet some of you do too. When we feel attacked and embarrassed we can be triggered to react. Instead, we should see areas where we may need to grow and let God handle the rest.

Recently I was very convicted about something I have said many times to my kids. I have often asked them to "be easy." But the Holy Spirit showed me there is something better than being easy—instead, I should say be obedient and be holy. As an easy adult who was an easy child, I am realizing that being easy has led to being a people-pleaser, being wounded and not saying anything, and avoiding all confrontation. My conviction is that we are called to be holy, which may look like standing up or speaking out! Where this week do you need to be holy instead of being easy?

Have you ever wanted to get to a certain goal, but it just takes so long that you are ready to give up? And meanwhile, it seems like all those around you are just flying achieving goals left and right. Well, friends, I want you to understand that the messy middle is where we can learn the most! I have been trying to reach 1 million downloads on this podcast for 2.5 years! Six months ago when things were looking like it would still take a long time, I doubled down my efforts and look where I am now! We made it! I want you to find enCOURAGEment, be consistent, and double down your efforts. You have no idea how close you are to a break though!
