Turn Your Power Into Profit

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #88 with Alex Barker

How To Turn Your Power Into Profit

From selling strollers and car seats to paying off his mortgage in 3 years, Alex Barker has mastered the side hustle…

Don’t forget family – 80% of your time with your kids will become before they are 18.

I knew from the moment Alex reached out to me on Facebook that we were going to have a great conversation.

Alex Barker is the founder of The Happy PharmD, which is a niche blog dedicated to helping pharmacists create a side hustle.

What I didn’t know about Alex, was the reason behind his businesses. Early in his pharmacy career, Alex and his wife had a burning desire to help other couples adopt. The challenge, as a pharmacist it would be very difficult for them to do this so Alex started his journey into entrepreneurship.

With very little business background, Alex started to buy and resell used baby strollers and car seats online. Realizing his limitations and wanting to help more people, Alex started his media company, began consulting, and now has created a number of courses to help pharmacists.

What you will learn in this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • How to create your side hustle
  • The importance of taking action
  • Why self-education is the best education
  • How to turn your powerful skillset into profit

How Focusing on Value Can Triple (3x) Your Business

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #75

How Focusing on Value Can Triple (3x) Your Business with Jen Berson, Founder of JenerationPR

Success meant being able to control my own time

The hardest part of starting a business is finding customers. The second hardest part of a business is parting ways with a client.

This past year, JenerationPR tripled their business, yes 3x, and Jen Berson attributes that success by parting ways with her first, and longest standing client. For most people, that would sound absolutely insane. Yet, when you take a deep honest look at your life and your business, you need to get clear about what’s holding you back and where you can deliver value.

Throughout this episode, Jen shares how the focus on value helped her scale her business. What was unique about Jen’s perspective on value, is it was not limited to the value she provides to her clients, but also to the people on her team and how she can add value to their lives by giving them flexibility in their daily lives.

What you will learn on this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • Why you might need to fire your client
  • How to change your mindset to scale your business
  • The important of the value chain (internally and externally)

How To Get Out Of A Rut

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast

Episode #69 with Barbara Siemen, Founder of The Chick Wire

Stop the excuses…go do what you love! I just signed up for an adult dance class, and I suck at dancing

Imagine building a blog, a social media following, and a highly engaged audience – and then receiving a letter from a Fortune 100 business telling you to shut it all down…

That is exactly what happened to Barara Siemen, and her first blog “Farm Barbie”. Her original blog shared her life “on the farm” and her name was “Barbara”, so “Farm Barbie” was a perfect fit – unless your Mattel!

After a tough legal battle, Barbra had no choice but to shut everything down. For most people, that would be the end of blogging. Driven by a purpose to create a stronger generation of women (especially for her daughter) she dusted herself off and reemerged as The Chick Wire.

Now, Barbra shares stories of empowering women from students to a firefighter.

Howdy folks! I’m Barbara, Founder of The Chick Wire (formerly Farm Barbie). I grew up a city chick but now I live on a farm in Michigan with my husband, Darrin, and children, Elliott, Adrienne, and Riley. We have milk cows, beef cattle, and grow corn, wheat, sugar beets and hay in Huron and Sanilac counties…

After a traumatic encounter with an older boyfriend at barely 18 years old, I was broken, afraid, and suspicious of everyone. Then, in college, I met an adorable farmer with big muscles and he promised to always love me, never hurt me, and take me places. I fell in love with him, his occupation, and his community.

Through all the years we’ve been together, I’ve been broken and repaired many times. I’ve had many surgeries, injuries, and lived in extraordinary and unexplainable pain. I found respite in connecting with consumers and other farmers through blogging.
However, in early 2016, blogging as Farm Barbie ended due to a legal dispute with Mattel, and I was broken again. After months of struggling with depression, feelings of inferiority, and lack of purpose, I realized I didn’t even know my true authentic self. I had completely immersed myself in the farming lifestyle, while raising children, being a good wife, and trying to forget my painful past. But, I had never developed ME as a woman.

The Chick Wire is my journey of discovering myself through connecting with you. I think everyone is interesting, and has a story to tell. I’ve hidden my story for too long, and the shame of it has stolen my sparkle for 20 years. But that record is getting broken now, too. Slowly, my pieces are coming back together.

What you will learn in this podcast:

  • How to rebound by taking action
  • The crucial role vulnerability plays in your personal growth
  • Why you should start a podcast
  • How “listening” will open new doors, and build better relationships

The secret to personal and professional growth

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #58

The secret to personal and professional growth with Sunniva Holt

[ctt template=”10″ link=”BeAaG” via=”yes” ]”There is no growth in your comfort zone” – Sunniva Holt, on The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast #HOP #GrowthMindset @douglasjfoley[/ctt]

I was introduced to Sunniva by show favorite, Regan Hillyer who appeared on Episode #31, so I knew that she was going to be a great fit for the show, and she hit it out of the park (sorry, for the baseball analogy, but I still pumped about the Toronto Blue Jays postseason success).

Sunniva Hold is a serial entrepreneur, property developer, coach, speaker, social media queen and author of “The Hustle Life” (a must read). She is also a self-made multi-millionaire by the age of 30, and uses her expertise to teach people around the world how to accelerate their levels of successful results and outcomes from a stockpile of experience across multiple business and wellness related disciplines.

Like many of the guests of the show Sunniva broke the traditional mold of working your 9-to-5 to start what has become a real estate empire. There are so many great life lessons throughout this interview that you can apply to your life immediately.

One of the most interesting stories, was how Sunniva found a way to create an incredible personal brand that helped her health by eating raw foods, with her direct and “raw” commentary. That brand evolved into “The Daily Raw” (click here).

What you will learn in this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • The benefits of eating wall to your entire life
  • How to grow in every aspect of your life (professionally and personally)
  • Why you need to own who you are, and understand criticism (no the haters)
  • How to become comfortable with being uncomfortable
