Emotional intelligence is a mindset that can propel your relations in every aspect of your life, not just business relationships.

Patricia Clason is going to help us better understand the impact of emotional intelligence.

Jen Youngquist

Attracting Your Soul Mate Partner and Living a Life of True Love with Jen Youngquist

Episode 34 | April 26, 2022

Do you believe in true love?  Do you wish it was a part of YOUR live? 

Today we are talking with Dating Coach Jen Youngquist.  She’s is going to help us better understand how to attract our Soul Mate Partner and enjoy a life of true love.

I know I can’t wait another second, so let’s get right into it. 

About our Guest, Jen Youngquist

Jen is a dating coach, a yoga teacher, and energy expert.

She has studied energy and transformation through yoga teacher training, certifications in Reiki and Naisha Ashian’s Primus Activation, multiple shamanic workshops and her own energy practices.

She’s been through several coach training programs (Robbins-Madanes, Strategic Intervention, and is working through Sacred Depths with Joanna Lindenbaum).

She is a native of Cincinnati, OH and lives there with her husband and her two kitties.
Prior to meeting her husband, she had a really hard time with relationships.

Starting at the age of 15 with a narcissistic psychopath, two busted proposals and several others that turned out to be some level of emotionally unavailable.

Most of these relationships ended up sucking 2-4 years of her life.

By the time she was 35, most of her friends, coworkers, and even younger cousins were all partnered up!

She was beginning to think that maybe she was just not marriage material or that lasting love was not in the cards for her.

That all changed when she decided to go on a journey to figure out how to shift this pattern. She discovered The Law of Attraction which gave her enough empowerment to make the changes necessary in order to attract the man that is now her husband. 

When she started her coaching practice a few years later, she knew exactly who she wanted to help – other women that, like her, were feeling hopeless and discouraged when it came to finding lasting love. 

She created The Path to Partnership Program which is a 1:1 program that helps women figure out what is mucking up their attraction signal and shift it so they can find The One.

Notion an All-in-One Workspace with Julie Ann Price

Episode 33 | April 19, 2022

All business owners understand the impact of having poor project management.   Disorganization in your business causes missed deadlines, unreliable customer journeys, floundering team engagement and just plain chaos.

 With so many options which one is best for your business?  

 Today we’re talking with Julie Ann Price, a Notion Expert.

 So what is Notion?  Notion is an all-in-one workspace.   It’s part project management tool and part note-taking app.

 Let’s jump right in find out why Julie Ann loves Notion!

 About our Guest, Julie Ann Price

Julie Ann Price spent a good portion of her life planning events and conventions. 

After 28 years in the hospitality industry, she retired and began the “third phase” of her life. She loves this phase as she can fully embrace her freedom and control over her day.

Her love of experimenting with schedules and what to prioritize in a day lead her to the Notion platform and she now designs Notion databases for her customers. She uses Notion personally to tackle all kinds of new hobbies and interests as part of her personal bucket list.

She is breaking with traditional living and doing things “MY WAY” (cue Frank Sinatra here 😄). 

Julie Ann lives in the ever-changing Northeast of the US with her two furry monsters – Sasquatch (Sazzie) and Cookie Monster. They often cameo in podcasts and videos as they defend the castle from ferocious squirrel attacks.

Welcome to the Real Life Startup Podcast.  I’m your host Karen LaMarsh and I’m excited you’re here!

When I was starting my online business, I felt overwhelmed at times.  Podcasts were the perfect learning tool for me, hopefully for you too. 

I totally geek out on podcasts and love learning about new ones to binge on.

This is a community for dreamers – people who are looking to get out of the day-to-day business activities, but not sure where to even begin?

You have worked hard to build a six-figure business, so now it’s time to strip down the processes of scaling and growing into the next stage. 

So Grab a cup of coffee and let’s dig in.  Let’s have some real conversations about systems, automation, team building, strategy, scaling, personal development, mindset and some work/life balance.

Every Tuesday, I have a fresh new episode for you.  I know how busy we all are, so I promise to try and keep it under 30 minutes!  Although sometimes our interviews are just too good to keep at 30 minutes.
