How To Create A Business That Impacts The World with Jenna Bitar from Cafe Organic

How To Create A Business That Impacts The World with Jenna Bitar from Cafe Organic

Do you think you need to be an expert in your field to start a business?  Have a passion but feel like you are not qualified enough to pursue it?  Do you have deeper purpose in life but you are not sure how to spread your message?

Wanting a business and having a deeper passion for life is a great reason to go out on your own.  To spread your message, make a difference in the world, but also make a living from it, to me, is the perfect formula to living a successful and fulfilled life.  Your impact on the world is changing peoples lives and isn’t that what it’s all about?

With a growing population, our impact on the world is getting more and more intense.  The more of us there are, the harder we are on the environment and it is going to take innovators to come up with solutions that still provide us with our daily needs, but also taking care of the environment as well.  By creating conversations and discussing with each other how we can make more conservative decisions towards our future, it will mean that we are taking steps to respect our environment, but also supporting small business that have the same values and goals as well.

Today on the podcast I had the pleasure of chatting with Jenna Bitar who is the founder and director of Cafe Organic, which is a health conscious cafe in Bali and one of the most instagrammable spots in Bali.  Jenna had no experience in hospitality, but had a huge passion to spread her sustainability message.  She believes sustainability can be cool, by creating beautiful cafes that create an experience with the buyer, from taking photos on instagram, to having a great dining experience and wanting to come back.  By being smart with her marketing, Jenna has been able to grow her brand to over 10,000 loyal followers which is amazing!  She is proving it is possible to have a deeper vision for the world and make a career from it.

In todays episode we discuss:

  • What it’s like growing up in Bali and the impact human waste has on the community

  • How she started Cafe Organic with no experience in hospitality

  • The importance of a sustainable future and the impact of the food industry on the world

  • How we can make more conscious decisions with our food

And so much more!

How To Specialise In Facebook & Bust The Algorithm with Jarrah Brailey from Socials By Jarrah

How To Specialise In Facebook & Bust The Algorithm with Jarrah Brailey from Socials By Jarrah

Would you like a career in Social Media but don’t know where to begin?  Are you fascinated by digital marketing and wonder how it can be used to build a career or help our business?  Does the thought of daily posting, content ideas and engagement overwhelm you?  Do you feel like you are getting nowhere with your facebook page and feel like giving up?  Or perhaps you want more followers that are eventually going to lead to loyal customers.

Social Media has blown up over the last few years and it has not only created a whole new sector of jobs that were never available before, it has also given small businesses the chance to advertise their services and make genuine connections with their audience for an affordable price.  Because of social media, we have a direct touchpoint to people who want to buy from us and the ability to make connections that ultimately lead to sales.

Just recently, I have spoken and interviewed a lot of experts in Instagram, but facebook isn’t to be forgotten either.  It’s the OG and most certainly not dead.  With the capabilities for Facebook Ads, we are reaching new audiences for very little money and small business are reaping all the benefits.  No matter what your reason for having a presence online, Facebook is still a great platform to spread your message and a great way to start a career or side hustle if you want to work for yourself.

If this is something that interests you, today I have Jarrah Brailey on the podcast who turned her side hustle, Socials By Jarrah in to her full time career in under a year.  Her rapid growth coupled with the demand in facebook ads forced her to become an expert in the field very quickly and is now the go to for many small businesses who want to see maximum results in their business for an affordable price.  Jarrah is a huge advocate for Facebook and believes with the right content and understanding of the platform, you can definitely be successful.

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • How quickly your side hustle can become your full time career

  • Why Facebook Ads are so in demand

  • What tactics work to bust the algorithm

  • The importance of connecting and engaging with your audience

And so much more!

How To Seize Your Yay & Make A Living Doing What You Love with Sarah Holloway from Spoonful of Sarah

How To Seize Your Yay & Make A Living Doing What You Love with Sarah Holloway from Spoonful of Sarah

Everyone always says, do something you love and you will never work a day in your life.  But how do we find what we love?  How do we live a life full of joy, but also fulfil ourselves and make our work worthwhile?  Do you dream of having a career that ticks all the boxes and doesn’t just fill your pockets?  Do you want to be a person of influence but you are not sure what it takes?  Have you thought about starting a business but thought it was all too hard and your life was too busy already?

Living a life of passion, joy and happiness is sometimes over looked in a world where hustle and stress are day to day activities.  We always imagine one day we will be happy, but for now we have to grind through and make serious sacrifices.  A lot of the time we are told if we want to be an entrepreneur, we have to give up the things we enjoy in order to take a chance on the life out our dreams.  But if we are not enjoying the process, what happens if the destination never comes or isn’t what you have planned?

Today I have the incredible Sarah Holloway, lawyer turned funtrepreneur on the podcast today and we cover a lot of her journey and all her achievements but the underlying theme of her life is to find what makes you happy and let that direct you through life.  I was so nervous to interview Sarah, you can probably hear it in my voice.  She has been a dream guest since I started this podcast as I admired her for all her business achievements.  I never thought I would get so much life and mindset advice from her as well!  It is one thing to be ambitious and want to make a lot of money in business, but it is just as important to lead with your passions and follow your heart, wherever it may take you!

Sarah is an all round girl boss and incredible role model.  She is constantly striving to find her yay, and encourages everyone else to take some time to find what makes us happy as well, and not to let life slip us by waiting for “one day”.  Why not be happy today!

This is a jam packed episode covering a range of topics including:

  • How Sarah went from being a lawyer to an entrepreneur

  • The inspiration behind her successful podcast, Seize The Yay

  • Why it is important to find what makes you happy and enjoy the journey of life

  • How a personal brand can help your business and vice versa

And so much more!

How To Build A Business & Be A Positive Influence On Social Media with Sami Rose

How To Build A Business & Be A Positive Influence On Social Media with Sami Rose

Do you dream of having a business online and inspiring thousands of people every day?  Do you want to make a difference on social media and use your influence for the better?  Are you sick of seeing false claims online and want to follow people who have the credentials and experience?  Do you value reliable sources and want to be one yourself and surround yourself with more influencers who have the same values?

With the rise of social media, the lines have become blurred as to who is or isn’t an expert, especially in the health field.  With so many influencers sharing their personal stories and success, what is healthy has become more about what is popular, and not so much about what is factually correct.  It is detrimental that influencers are fact checking and making sure they are promoting products that are good for you, and not just good for the wallets.  On the flip side, experts need to be promoting the right information, and not spreading lies in order to go viral, it’s a very dangerous slope.

Today I wanted to get real on this topic and open up the conversation as to what is appropriate online, especially in the health field and I was honoured when Sami Rose agreed to come on and shed some light on this topic.

Sami is Health and Fitness Coach, but she is also an influencer so she sees both sides of the story.  Her business has directly benefited from social media, but for the right reasons.  She is real, honest and genuinely cares about her audience, and that’s what makes her successful, not making the next quick dollar.

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • How Sami earns a living online

  • The importance of spreading the right information online

  • How you can be a positive influencer and make a difference

  • What to look out for when seeking health advice

And so much more!

How To Be Ambitious Without The Burnout with Rosie Chehade from Happiness Lifestyle

How To Be Ambitious Without The Burnout with Rosie Chehade from Happiness Lifestyle

Are you an ambitious gal who puts everything on her plate at once?  Have dreams so big that nothing can get in your way (even your own health)?  Are you such a high achiever that you never put yourself first and suffer from health problems?  Live in a constant state of anxiety and stress?

Being ambitious is an amazing trait to have, if it is coming from the right place.  So often we want to prove others wrong or we are scared of what would happen if we took things a little slow, but that is just your ego talking.  Putting pressure on yourself to reach unattainable perfection leads to an unhealthy relationship in the mind which can in turn manifest itself into physical problems.  Our bodies have a direct relationship to what is going on in our minds and if you are not taking care of your mental health, your body will mirror that.

Today I chat with Transformational Wellbeing and Leadership Coach, Rosie Chehade on how an extremely ambitious lifestyle can lead to devastation, not just mentally, but physically too.  After being diagnosed with a chronic illness due to an intense working environment, Rosie had to dig deep, get to know herself again and build her life from the ground up facing on her passions, not what society tells her to do.  She now helps other ambitious women find preventative measures for burnout before it takes complete control of their lives.

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • How being a high achiever can impact us negatively

  • How stress, anxiety and burnout can show up in our lives and what that really means

  • Practical tools to help us recognise and deal with stress before it becomes a problem

  • Ways to find balance in our ambitious lives

Sometimes the jobs we have require us to not only give a lot intellectually, but emotionally too.  The entertainment industry for example requires you to be confident, back yourself and have a personality that stands out from the rest.  Not many of us get to experience this lifestyle, but a lot of us wonder exactly what kind of person it takes to stand out from the crowd and make a positive impact both in their job and in person too.
