Navigating Entrepreneurship: A Conversation with Lydia, Founder of 'Screw the Cubicle'
In this insightful interview, Jaclyn sits down with Lydia, the innovative mind behind 'Screw the Cubicle,' celebrating its 10th anniversary. Lydia, an innovation coach for workers and a strategist for solopreneurs, shares her remarkable journey from corporate America to location-independent entrepreneurship. Discover how she's redefined success, mastered resilience, and guides her clients to align their businesses with their unique aspirations. Lydia's Journey: Lydia reflects on her journey from the corporate world to entrepreneurship. Initially content just working for herself, she never imagined achieving location independence. Over the past decade, she's explored various lifestyles while building her business, emphasizing the importance of working smarter, not harder. Lydia advocates for "Tiny but Mighty" businesses, focusing on finding the right balance of work and life. Defining Success: Lydia discusses the evolving concept of "enough" in her life and business. She advises against obsessing over the perfect business plan or niche, emphasizing designing a business that aligns with current needs and aspirations. Instead of striving for perfection, she encourages embracing uncertainty and adapting to change. Business Model Alignment: Lydia shares insights into the importance of focusing on a specific area to achieve mastery in entrepreneurship. While versatility is praised in the corporate world, specialization is key to standing out in the entrepreneurial landscape. By narrowing their focus, entrepreneurs can accelerate client acquisition and boost sales. Resilience Amid Uncertainty: Lydia's approach to uncertainty involves calculated risks. She views major decisions, like her move to Bali, as short-term experiments rather than permanent commitments. This mindset allows for flexibility and minimizes fear. She emphasizes that building a strong foundation is essential before marketing and branding. Globalization and Lifestyle Integration: Lydia highlights the opportunities presented by a more interconnected world. Remote work, homeschooling, and lifestyle choices have evolved, enabling entrepreneurs to reach international markets. The pandemic awakened a desire for more fulfilling work and life experiences, driving a positive shift in perspective. Lydia's website, https://screwthecubicle.com/, serves as a valuable resource hub. Her YouTube channel offers structured playlists catering to different career stages. Take the "What Business Should I Start Based on My Personality Type?" quiz to receive personalized insights into starting a meaningful business aligned with your strengths and personality. In a world of uncertainty and evolving work dynamics, Lydia's wisdom provides a refreshing perspective on entrepreneurship. Her journey from corporate confines to a location-independent business serves as an inspiration for those seeking more meaningful and flexible work-life integration.

Unleashing Your Full Potential: A Conversation with Dr. Coyte Cooper In this interview with Dr. Coyte Cooper, PhD, host Jaclyn dives deep into the journey of a man who transformed adversity into opportunity. From a promising career as a college professor to becoming an author, coach, and speaker, Coyte shares his insights on the power of mindset, resilience, and personal growth. Discover how he navigated the saturated coaching market, differentiated himself, and empowered others to conquer their fears and achieve their goals. Embracing Change: Coyte's journey began in Alaska, where he was a wrestler and an athlete, setting the stage for his relentless drive for success. After college, he pursued a career as a college professor, pouring his heart into it for seven years. However, a sudden denial of tenure shook his world, leaving him with no Plan B. The Turning Point: Coyte's life took a drastic turn when he decided not to accept a demotion but rather chase his dream of becoming an entrepreneur, author, coach, and speaker.

Coyte acknowledges the difficulties but emphasizes the power of authenticity and serving at the highest level. Overcoming Plateaus: Coyte explores the reasons why people sometimes don't get the results they desire despite their best efforts. He explains that fear and self-doubt are often the hidden obstacles that need to be addressed. Accepting Non-Success: The interview touches on the concept of reframing "failure." Coyte advocates for shifting the focus from external results to personal growth, emphasizing gratitude, giving your best, and embracing the opportunity to grow, irrespective of outcomes. Respecting Individual Perspectives: Coyte believes in providing tools and techniques but respecting individual perspectives. He encourages clients to adapt strategies to suit their unique needs and preferences. Collaboration and Humility: Coyte recognizes that he may not be an expert in every aspect and is open to collaboration with other professionals. He stresses the importance of humility in knowing when to refer clients to specialists. Dr. Coyte Cooper's coaching philosophy centers on empowering individuals to conquer their fears, optimize their mindset, and unleash their full potential.

Inside CoachAccountable: The guy who created the whole thing, John Larson

Inside CoachAccountable: The guy who created the whole thing, John Larson
John Larson is an entrepreneur with a passion for innovation and transformation. In 2008, he co-founded Playground Creative, a creative design and web agency that focused on contract work. While skilled in execution, John and his business partner faced the challenges of entrepreneurship, seeking ways to transcend hourly contract limitations. Inspired by his experiences with Landmark Education and a fascination with coaching, John and his business partners embarked on a journey to combine their design and web development expertise with coaching. This led to the creation of CoachAccountable 1.0 in 2008, an initial attempt at blending coaching with technology. However, despite its attractive appearance, the launch of 1.0 didn't meet expectations. As John puts it…his baby was ugly! He eventually moved on from Playground Creative, trading his stake for the rights to CoachAccountable.  After some time passed, John recognized there was potential with the smartphone revolution and the rising interest in cloud-based apps. So, with a bit more life experience and a different perspective, he worked on refining CoachAcocuntable while doing a world tour excursion with his wife. From his kitchen table in Cusco, Peru, John introduced CoachAccountable 2.0 to the world in August of 2012. This relaunch marked a turning point, as the improved product gained traction and positive feedback. Over the past 11 years, CoachAccountable is now used by thousands of coaches globally. He also runs his company, not with a team of 100 (as some may imagine) but very, very lean.  Not being beholden to business rules, adapting to technological trends, and ongoing collaboration from the very users of CoachAccountable, John has developed successful software that addressed the shortcomings of that version 1 attempt…one that definitely passes the “mom test”.  His journey underscores his commitment to being an artist and his entrepreneurial spirit.Find out more about CoachAccountable and John at https://www.coachaccountable.com/
