5 Golden Nuggets Shared:

  1. It generally takes extreme circumstances for us to make a change. Be proactive, don’t wait for something bad to happen to make a positive change in your life.  
  2. Don’t become a victim of your adversity. Use that adversity to propel you forward and build resilience.  
  3. Know your ideal client persona and what they actually want. Don’t build a brand if you don’t know your audience.
  4. Ask yourself two important questions that will help build your success story: 1.)  How can you change your world right now? 2.) How can you put something out that’s something new and different?  
  5. When someone asks how they can help you, be clear about what you want and what you need. You never know who has the resources to help you or how you can turn around and help them. Clarity on your wants and needs are key!

Tune in to learn how you can use podcasting and storytelling in your business to attract more clients!

5 Golden Nuggets Shared:

  1. You don’t always get things right on the first attempt, so don’t give up! Sometimes timing is off, your not ready, or you have more to learn before you will succeed.
  2. It can be difficult to find your passion. Not everyone has that “ah ha” moment where they know. If this sounds like you, find something you are good at, keep practicing it, and eventually you will become passionate about it.
  3. If you don’t know something, go find someone who does and interview them. This is an easy way to gain new knowledge, make new connections, and be seen as an influencer in your industry.  
  4. Take a hard look at your assets, if you don’t have what you need then create them. Take inventory of what you do have, what you’re good at, and what you need to outsource.  
  5. For media, start locally with a group of people who care about you and continuously work with them to get your message out there. This will help start your platform and eventually build you up towards higher levels of press and success.    

3 Bold and Kick-Ass Quotes:

  1. “There’s no substitute for hard work. You’ll figure out your purpose eventually but you can’t claim that as a reason to not be taking action.” – Jeremy Ryan Slate
  2. “Find out who is going to care and tell them why they should care.” – Jeremy Ryan Slate
  3. “Learn to trade value with people.” – Jeremy Ryan Slate

Mary blends personal experience with her extensive knowledge of neuroscience and human behavior to guide businesses and individuals to defeat the freakout and create their ideal life.  Mary has had a rollercoaster life, from tragically losing her first child to building a purpose-filled 8-figure business and writing the Hay House bestseller Conscious Communications.

Dedicated to making an impact in the world, Mary is on a mission to create change in a tough industry and share transformative lessons that bridge the gap between science and spirituality. Tune in to hear Mary’s story and learn how to better communicate with yourself and others!

5 Golden Nuggets Shared:

  1. Evaluate your top 10 common scenarios in your business. Then, brainstorm positive ways you can handle these situations.
  2. Every business should have a “DO NOT SAY” list. For example, instead of using “unfortunately” change it to “fortunately” and flip the script.
  3. Every experience we encounter shapes us into who we are. Be grateful for the adversities you have overcome and recognize how strong you are to have gone through them. Remember, sometimes the best inspiration comes from desperation.
  4. Don’t let your limiting beliefs control you. Whatever you think you can’t do, there’s a reason behind why you think that. Dig deep and find the answer to why you think you “can’t” do something, then figure out how to do it!
  5. Know your value and don’t give too much away for free, or there will be nothing left to give. Many people encourage you to “give value,” but you have to know your personal value also comes with a price.

3 Bold and Kick-Ass Quotes:

  1. “Every action you take and every choice you make is either creating a connection or driving a disconnection.” – Mary Shores
  2. “I started this business because I felt like it was the only way for me to control my own destiny.” – Mary Shores
  3. “Purpose is whatever your natural skills, gifts, and talents are.” – Mary Shores
