You've heard it before: Trust your gut.But if it were that simple, we'd never question another decision we made, ever again.How do you tell the difference between your intuition and fear?Where is the line between logic and intuitive knowing?What role do they play in decision-making?How do you learn to listen to your gut when you've spent your whole life ignoring it for the voice in your head?Meaghan Pierce, author and entrepreneur, joins us to talk about all things intuition and how she learned to trust her own when it came to making pretty big leaps in her life. Together, we dissect the role of intuition in life's "fork in the road" moments.We touch on the shadow side of relentless self-improvement, where the pursuit of goals can morph into a cycle of never feeling quite "good enough", and we critically examine the line between life coaching and therapy, offering insights that challenge the status quo and encourage a deeper, more nuanced approach to personal growth.And when it comes to decision-making, we uncover the crucial role of a supportive community and the power of discernment in choosing whom to confide in. Drawing from our collective experiences, we highlight the significance of having cheerleaders who bolster our intuition and support our dreams, even when faced with skepticism. If you've ever wanted to learn more about what it actually looks like to trust your gut, you won't want to miss this honest reflection on trusting the compass of your inner voice and the courage to follow it with unwavering conviction.Guest Bio: Meaghan Pierce is the author of 8 mafia romance novels and 2 fantasy novels under the pen name Piper Easton.

EP55: The Controversy of Commitment: Why "All In" is a Huge Red Flag
How much do you really have to give (or give up) to be considered "all in" when it comes to your job or your business?This week, I recount a deeply personal journey, pulling back the curtain on the emotional rollercoaster of what seems like an increasingly convoluted job application process. I share the excitement of connecting with what seemed like the perfect team, where my expertise was truly valued, to the sting of having a promising job offer taken away because of the question of commitment.But this conversation goes beyond the nuts and bolts of job hunting. It's an exploration of the controversial demands for "all-in" dedication. I talk about how this expectation can be both a badge of honor and a source of shame, challenging the established norms of what employers expect. It's time to bring to argue for a healthier balance, one that values personal growth just as much as professional achievement, without leading to burnout. Through my experiences, I offer insights and critical perspectives that question the business world's definition of commitment. It's all about the struggles of seeking employment while running a business, and the important lessons on setting boundaries in the pursuit of a career that's truly fulfilling.Support the Show.Connect with Sarah: Join the Audacious Business Lab newsletter -- a weekly newsletter filled with no-nonsense strategies and insights to grow your business your way.

EP48: Exploring the Evolving Landscape of Online Business in 2023/24 -- with Elaine Jardon, Jennifer Battle, Rachel Aiken and Erika Tebbens
Online business has evolved enormously since 2020. This week, I'm joined by 4 audacious and incredibly powerful and insightful business owners: Jennifer Battle, Rachel Aiken, Elaine Jardon, and Erika Tebbens.Tune in as they share their journey and the evolution of online entrepreneurship over the last few years. We unmask the aftermath of the pandemic and its effect on business strategies and buyer habits. We explore currency in the digital marketplace and the key to making sales. We pay homage to our collective growth, the trials and triumphs of doing business differently and the innovations birthed from necessity.We also talk about the changing definitions of business success. This isn’t just about revenue – it’s about personal growth, mentorships, and crafting a business model that is as structured as it is flexible, exploring the duality of working to live and living to work, and sometimes how the means to an end could be the end itself. We touch on a variety of topics within the online space: marketing, email and copy, courses and IP, strategy, education and coaching, capacity, and the over-simplification of teaching. With 2024 on the horizon, we leave no stone unturned, discussing our predictions for the business landscape and how it's changing (or needs to change), the need for a customer-centric approach and the balance between sharing your intimate journey while achieving larger-than-life results.
