The Reality of Being a #GirlBoss Entrepreneur

 

 

☝️☝️What most people think entrepreneurship or girl bossing looks like on the daily. I don’t blame any of you for thinking it sounds glamorous, sexy, fun, relatively easy, and exciting, as that’s what most boss babes show on social media. I’m here to both teach you and tell you the real deal behind the scenes.

I started my first company 10 years ago (a Marketing/Sales, Public Relations firm). It was scary AF, exciting, empowering, and I was fueled with adrenaline for a solid year. After many mistakes, learning curves, and engaging with some dishonest people, the rose-colored glasses (AKA beer goggles) came off. Sitting in my office at my first big executive desk, I held my head in my hands, thinking 🤔 “holy shit what did I get my self into?!” At this point in starting a business, a new career, or even a relationship for that matter, 95% of people will give up, quit, or self-sabotage. A true leader, entrepreneur, empowered woman doesn’t ever see quitting as an option. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t feeling frustrated, frazzled, stuck, a bit lost, and scared. I was feeling all of that and then some.

Each month and each year I got smarter and more efficient at running my business. Over the last 10 years I’ve had glamorous moments of being paid to speak to thousands of people, being flown first class on international trips to consult for high profile companies, and succeeded in closing an 8 figure business deal! However, there we far more bloopers than highlights and a ton of “basic” days built in.

If you have the inner strength and that deep inner drive to thrive, you have a great shot of creating a successful business/career. I’m far from Ms Positive Polly, so a positive attitude is far less important than believing you will find a way and figure it out. Please don’t try to attempt any of this alone, that’s a set up for failure and burnout. Find a mentor, even a digital one. Preferably someone who has been in the game for many years, versus someone who’s had a good 3-year run. DM me with any questions.😊

How to Get Paid and Recognized as a Social Media Influencer on Instagram and Facebook EP076


Wonder how those girls get paid to travel the world and get tons of free beauty products and clothes sent to them for free in exchange for posting on their blog or Instagram? I use to wonder the same thing…and I was determined to solve this mystery.

2017 was one of the most difficult years of my life. My entire system came to halt, I didn’t even have enough strength to take a shower or go to the grocery store.

It took many months but I was finally diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue stage 3, borderline stage 4. By the way, at stage 4 I would have to be hospitalized.  The recovery process of this invisible illness is slow, and requires multiple lifetimes of extreme rest.

Since I was couch-bound and couldn’t focus enough to even read a book (one of the many symptoms of AF), I scrolled and studied Instagram and Influencers. Truly, I was doing the prep-work and research needed to launch ProjectME with Tiffany Carter, but I wasn’t even fully aware of that at the time. My motivation was to figure out how in the hell these chics were getting paid to post and write about the cool free stuff and trips companies were giving them.

I did my reporter thing and interviewed influencers, the companies who use them, and the agents who represent them…. now I get how the entire system operates.

So of course I’m going to share everything I learned with all of you. What fun would it be keeping all of the juicy details to my self? Some of the stories are crazy, some sexist, and most are straight up about sales and money.

Worthy Now

 

 

 

You are worthy of the best of the best, 5-Star, top quality people, places and things. I can tell you that a million times but if you don’t truly believe it for yourself, you will NEVER attract it into your life.

Think about this: you are here for a reason, otherwise you wouldn’t be. A power greater than all of us sees you as a miracle, as perfect, as a chosen one born into this world. If you don’t believe you are worthy of greatness, at least believe that a power greater than you do. You are perfectly imperfect and good enough just as you are today. 💜, Tiffany

Top Mutli-Millionaire Daily Business Practices that Will Lead You to Massive Success, with Melissa Tucci, the #1 Realtor in California with over a Billion Dollars in Sales EP075


You want to know how someone is super successful, take a look at his or her daily actions and habits. A millionaire is made one dollar and one decision at a time.

My friends and me get asked all the time, “how did you get so successful?” My answer is typically the same unless I’m in a really sassy mood. I say, “I do what 99% of people aren’t willing to do, and I do it even on the days that I don’t feel like it.”

I think people who ask this question are expecting some complex strategic answer, but the foundation really is that simple. The catch is, it’s a pain in the ass many days to do all of the things when you are tired, grouchy, overwhelmed, and over it.

So I brought on one of my long-time friends (I’ve known her since I was 14) and one of my most successful friends, to tell you exactly how she went from making literally nothing with zero sales to having an average of 140 million dollars in real estate sales every year.

Melissa Tucci is the number one realtor for Coldwell Banker in all of California. She is the official agent for the San Diego Padres. Melissa is regularly featured on the TV show, “The American Dream” as an Elite Specialist. Plus she has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal, as one of the Top100 Agents in the Nation.

If this is your current mood…

Some days we will feel off, grouchy, depressed, uninspired, and downright bitchy. If you feel how my bulldog Molly looks today 😞

#1 give yourself permission to feel how you are feeling without judgment.

#2 Get quiet and still for a few minutes and lovingly ask yourself what it is you need right now? Allow the answer to come up and honor it without judgment. For me, I got sick almost a week ago, and I’m still not completely recovered, which is frustrating AF to me and my entrepreneur life. Since I never will suggest you do something that I haven’t done or do, I asked my self that question. The answer I received was patience, nurturing, and to go extra slow.
#3 Trying to figure out why you are having an off week or day is a waste of energy unless it’s a pattern you are seeing with yourself. As humans, we aren’t designed to always be happy, vibrant, motivated, inspired, and healthy (despite what people post on social)…our moods and energy levels fluctuate just as the hormones do inside our bodies.

What to do when someone tells you “they can’t afford it, or now isn’t the right time,” a full step-by-step sales call role-play EP074


Do any of these sounds familiar? “I don’t have the money right now,” “Oh wow, that’s expensive!” “Now isn’t a good time for me financially.”

If you have a business of any kind, you likely have heard these “excuses” at nauseam. If you haven’t heard them, then you have a different issue of not attracting enough ideal clients to you and getting them on a damn call. You need to DM me STAT.

Most sales calls die the moment someone says a version of the excuse, “I can’t afford it.” I use the word “excuse” because that’s all it is. When someone no matter how broke they are REEEEAAAALLLY want a problem they have to be solved or relieved, they will find the money.

When they believe you have the solution to their problem, they will find the funds.

So either you A, didn’t connect their problems with your solutions, or B, you lost your shiz when they started talking about money and didn’t know how to handle it. Maybe you felt bad or pushy saying anything after they told you they were broke…I get it, but look at it this way, you are doing them a disservice by allowing the conversation to stop at their first or even second excuse.

Listen and learn as I take you through a full role-play on how to handle the common money objections.

Making Money Following Your Passion Even When It is Completely Different from What you Have Done Your Entire Life, with Lisa Phillips, Private Investigator and Owner of Pink Lady Investigations EP073


So you want to make money doing something you love but that something is completely different than your current career, what you went to school for, or what your family and friends would expect from you. I hear you, I see you, and I get you.

I spent a chunk of my adult life in a completely different profession than what I am doing now. Hello pharmaceutical sales and management for billion dollar corporations to entrepreneurship. People thought I was nuts in fact even irresponsible to leave a (as they called it) “cush” corporate job for the unknown and risky world of being an entrepreneur. Little did they realize their doubt and apprehension only made me want to succeed even more. Pro tip: Don’t doubt a female Virgo.

On today’s podcast, I bought on a woman who just did a complete 180. She was pushing papers in the insurance world at a desk job, and decided to go all-in on being a private eye and an entrepreneur. That’s right…like a legal spy.

In fact, she is currently on a stake out while doing this interview. That is next level multi-tasking. Also a great sign that she will crush it in entrepreneurship.

Lisa Phillips is a private investigator, a mom, and the proud owner of Pink Lady Investigations, specializing in infidelity and child custody cases.

You were born to be real, not to be perfect!

Somewhere along the way, many of us developed the false belief that we have to be perfect, that we aren’t good enough just as we are. It’s a belief that kept me trapped for most of my life. I kept overachieving, dieting, exercising, doing, to the point of exhaustion, trying to achieve the unachievable, PERFECTION.

Of course I never achieved it and I nearly killed my self trying (that’s not an exaggeration…you will hear more of my insane story once my podcast launches). Now I’ve accepted that I’m a human being, not a human doing, and all I can do is my best. Accepting our humanness is to accept our quirks, our flaws, our physical limitations, our bodies while shining a big beautiful light on all the gifts we have to offer the world.

I’m I “perfect” at doing this acceptance thing every day? HELL NO. But I’m 1000000 times better, happier, calmer than I use to be. Truly that’s all I can ask for is progress, not perfection. 💜, Tiffany

How and Why Your Self-Worth and Net-Worth are Connected, a Valentine’s Day Special Episode EP072


When a client tells me they are broke or in debt, the first place I explore is self-worth.

Money mindset stuff is sneaky AF. Most of the sabotaging behaviors we do are sub-conscious, meaning we are not even aware we are doing them.  All of our choices are intertwined with our sense of self-worth.

When we believe we deserve to have and it all get it, then guess what we do! (as long as there isn’t more buried crap under the surface you are in denial over)

When we believe that we are good but not as good as so and so, and that success is only reserved for super pretty extroverted people, GUESS WHAT? Then we operate at just a “good” level, only make maybe “good” money and “good” choices, and surround ourselves with “good” people.

Imagine how this exercise goes with you think you are a piece of shit, a fraud, less than, fat, ugly, not that smart, etc….

This is why I always say low self-worth equals low net-worth, but the good news is high self-worth equals high net-worth. Self-worth is something we can repair.

Listen to this episode to learn how to assess your current self-worth and what you do to fix it.  If I was able to take mine from the gutter to glory, then I’m confident anyone can!
