Today we have Marian Mellen on the show to talk about how to grow your business and live the life that you love. Marian has grown her brand and business to bring positivity and authenticity to women’s lives. She cultivated her passion and skills of teaching and her why as a business owner. She talks about how she started her business Zen Bird and expanded to her Heart and Soul Workshops. We had a heart and soul connection in this episode as we went deeper with things that I didn’t even realize was going on in my life.

 

Topics we cover:


— Going deeper into the Why behind our businesses
— How to cultivate more authentic conversations and friendships and more meaningful questions to ask
— Sharing deeper elements of yourself to your clients and the world
— How, as people, we are constantly branding ourselves
— Valuing simplicity and how it helps us focus on authenticity and self-love
— Rituals of self-love and self-care and the benefits of minimalism
— Using tools to pull ourselves out of negative self-talk and to grow business
— Going back to our core values, whether personal or business, and defining what success looks like to different people
— Challenges of growing a business and how to combat those by sticking to our core values
