Redefining Hustle: Navigating Success as a Christian Woman

Erin Harrigan

Hi my high-achieving sister in Christ! Have you experienced great business or professional heights in your own strength, but you still feel empty and unfulfilled? Is your outward success clashing with your values and priorities, especially your faith? If overachievement is like a badge of honor for you, you’ll find relief and respite here! Welcome to Redefining Hustle: Navigating Success as a Christian Woman, the weekly podcast for high-achievers like you who desire harmony between their faith and ambition. I’m Erin Harrigan, a Christian wife, empty nest mom, entrepreneur and recovering overachiever, who felt those same things. When I prayed for a better way to work, God responded with “let me drive.” Then He led me to help women like you through my speaking, coaching and writing. My mission is teaching you that success doesn’t require buying into the world’s frantic definition of hustle or into the so-called “anti-hustle” movement! Instead, you can meet me in the middle right h read less

Navigate vs. Pursue: How Christian Women Do Business Ep 260
As high-achieving women, we're really good at getting things done. We pursue a mission or project to see it through to completion. Often our pursuit is to our own detriment. And we navigate business the way we've been taught by our mentors, those we admire who have achieved the levels we desire. But to follow Jesus is to be fully surrendered and all in for Him. To allow him to take the wheel and be our Great Positioning Shepherd, our GPS, to allow Him to guide us, which is different than the world shows us. We navigate with humility, obedience, and putting aside our "great" for His best. This is why I'm excited to share the change I've made to the subtitle of this show: from "pursuing success" to "navigating success." Being a Christian woman, daughter of the king and a follower of Jesus, and allowing the Holy Spirit to have his way day in and day out in our business and in our work looks different than the way everyone else navigates the world of success, the world of business, the world of corporate life. I pray that this opens your ears and deepens your listening on these episodes.  YOUR CALL TO ACTION Skip the scroll and engage with my content on my email list!

Navigating Success: Your Prayer for God’s Direction – Ep 259
You've reached great heights in your own strength, but how is navigating success different as a Christian woman?  Do you ever wonder why your personal map doesn't seem to match God's? Or why our Great Positioning Shepherd (GPS) seems to be recalculating away from the best laid plans you made? It's why navigating success by your personal map can never match God's plan, and why we often think our Great Positioning Shepherd (GPS) seems to be recalculating our direction. It takes discipline and diligence in seeking God in daily prayer for your business (and then taking the action He gives).  Scriptures for your continued study: Exodus 13 Psalm 32:8 Proverbs 3:5-6 Isaiah 30:21 Psalm 119:105 Resources in this episode: A Cloud By Day, A Fire By Night by AW Tozer Why God Likes the Long Way and Why That's Okay by Kari Patterson YOUR CALL TO ACTION Skip the scroll and engage with my content on my email list!

Breaking free: Commit to seeking Him and His truth. Matthew 6:33 Commit to trusting Him and not leaning on our own understanding. Proverbs 3:5-6 Think about all the ways we've made decisions in the flesh and not in the Spirit. Ask Him to serrch our hearts. Psalm 139:23-24 Athena left us with this scripture: 1 Peter 5:10 which tells us what the Lord will do after we've suffered. Athena is an author, speaker, publisher, spiritual abuse survivor, and podcaster. She pioneered the indie publishing movement in the Christian market 3 decades ago, and loves helping people find their voice and tell their stories.

Stewardship Over Scarcity – How’s Your Money Focus – Ep 248

Stewardship Over Scarcity – How’s Your Money Focus – Ep 248
Are you a high-achieving, high-earning Christian woman in business or the boardroom who secretly struggles with scarcity when it comes to money? Scarcity is often kept as a secret because admitting it seems like admitting defeat. The triumph, however, is embracing stewardship - of time, talent and treasure - to break free from scarcity thinking!    Because the truth is: there is no scarcity in God's Kingdom, and what He has given you to steward is directly related to those He has positioned you to impact.   Hold my hand and let's unpack this together with three key questions: 1. What is your heart posture - are you believing scarcity surrounds you or are you ready to steward what God has entrusted to you? 2. Do you trust the Lord as your ultimate compass and provider (or are you only trusting yourself and worried you can't make the money you need?) 3. Do you believe if you don't show up constantly, work constantly, etc. that you'll miss out on earnings, clients or all God has for you? Scriptures for continued study: 1 Timothy 6:10 Matthew 6:24 Matthew 25:14-30 1 Corinthians 9:6-8 1 Peter 4:10-11 YOUR CALL TO ACTION If you desire an objective perspective and a SAFE place to let God lead in your work or business (strategy, accountability, focus and encouragement), I'm the coach that integrates faith and business for you to break free from business as usual - schedule your FREE discovery call to explore working with me: https://erinharrigan.com/discoverycall Get my 4 Keys Audio Devotional & subscribe to my email list: https://erinharrigan.com/4Keysdevotional LET'S BE FRIENDS ON SOCIAL LinkedIn: @erinharrigan IG: @erindharrigan FB: @thehustlewithheartcoach SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL https://youtube.com/@erinharrigan If this show brings you value, please give it a follow on Apple Podcasts and leave a review.

Spirit-led Sales for Growth and Stability – Althea McIntyre

Spirit-led Sales for Growth and Stability – Althea McIntyre
As part of my annual Money Matters series, I'm thrilled to welcome guest Althea McIntyre to discuss Spirit-led sales and impacting growth & financial stability in your business. I have learned much from Althea and I love her approach to sales that's not focused solely on the commas in the revenue, but instead, is about how the Holy Spirit guides individuals in how, why and to whom they sell in their businesses! What does "Holy Spirit-Led Sales" even mean? Althea says it's partnering with Holy Spirit in your sales process and it takes unlearning all the generational, cultural and moreal beliefs about sales. And learning this is a must for Christian women in business who have products and services they want to sell more of from a position of SERVING and PARTNERING with Holy Spirit. Whether you realize it or not, you're always selling in some capacity in business. Why not do it the best way possible: HOLY SPIRIT-LED!

Work with Purpose: Christian Business Ethics – Ep 245
Business ethics: always a hot topic in society, right? Ever wonder how to work with purpose employing Christian  Edit date and time business ethics for your business? I believe the fruit of the spirit is a perfect foundation for business ethics! Through this gift of the Holy Spirit, we can emulate Jesus in all we do, no matter what size business we're running for God's glory. And that's our main purpose, right?   I found some amazing resources for you on this topic - one snippet says: As Christians, we are called to a higher standard: We should seek to go beyond what is just morally right to biblical ethics, behaving in such a way that the Bible requires. As Christians, our business ethics are framed by our worldview and should be an outpouring of living out our faith.

Still, as a high-achieving sister in Christ with an established business or professional career, you've mostly been navigating the path of success through your own strength, tenacity, and perseverance.
