This Elite Achievement episode is a special one! Our guests are Heather DelaTorre, Lindsay Schmit, Yaya Margarita, Hillary Lewis, and Lindsey McMillion from the Grow Towards Your Goals IG Live Series we did this past March in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Heather was born in the Midwest, fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, but will always live on the beach. She is a certified yoga instructor, project manager in corporate America, and passionate about practicing yoga.
Lindsay is a Wisconsin native who worked as a consultant in corporate America for 12 years prior to business ownership at Right Hand Consultants. Lindsay enjoys live sporting events, concerts, running, and outdoor activities with the family. She loves when a good plan comes together.
Yaya and Hillary both grew up with a love of dance and while dance and movement have always been a huge part of their lives, when it came to exercise, they both struggled to find a workout that was as exciting and engaging. After years of less than exciting gym sessions, both Yaya and Hillary started finding workouts that they loved and were inspired to bring these ideas to their community in southern California through Shine Society Fitness.
Lindsey is the principal and owner of McMillion Consulting. She is a speaker, writer, and prospecting trainer. She focuses on using LinkedIn as a business tool and has worked with thousands of professionals and teams since 2013 to help them connect with purpose and increase their revenue.
04:40 – Having a positive mindset is just so important. I think it's really easy to have negative thoughts when it comes to goals and achievements and next steps for us.
16:46 - Why do we take time to work on our business? It pulls us away from working in our business, those revenue-generating activities. But at the same time, investing that time and working on your business can pay dividends down the road.
26:46 - One thing that Yaya and I have both been doing is sitting with each other and talking about what our goals are for our business, for ourselves, and what we want the future to look like. I think as business owners, we often get so wrapped up in the everyday that we're like, hey, are we actually doing what we set out to do?
39:21 - The first piece when I think of the importance of growing your network is that it keeps you relevant and top of mind. When you're actively growing your network, making connections, having conversations, that keeps you top of mind. The second thing is it actually allows you to give back and when I think of giving back as it relates to networking, I mean introducing people. So, as I'm meeting people, I'm constantly just being a connector. It’s kind of part of my DNA anyways. It's why I love LinkedIn so much.
