Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took a little break in your business?

No, I don’t mean packing it in and fleeing for parts unknown.

But what if you gave yourself permission to just stop doing a particular task for a while? 

What would happen if you took a step back to let yourself reset for a bit?

In this episode, I’m sharing my strange start to the year, the power of taking a break, and a few things I have on my mind that may be helpful for you to consider right now.

Working with clients can sometimes be stressful, can’t it?

And when things are a little rocky, there’s one specific thing that can end up making or breaking your client relationships —

R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

When a client doesn’t 100% trust you, you can end up feeling frustrated and disrespected. 

You probably want to burn things down and run away from working with clients at all. 

But that’s not the answer!

In this episode, we’re looking at the importance of respect to creating a trusted client experience, and how to consistently foster it.

When you think about building a strong relationship built for success and longevity, what do you think matters most? 

Whether it’s business or personal, trust is going to be one of the most important building blocks you’ll need. 

Unfortunately, the status quo of online business is all about teaching us tips, tricks, and tactics that make us THINK we’re building a foundation of trust — only to find out later that foundation is actually sitting on quicksand.

So how do we bake trust into everything we do? How do we ensure that the foundation of trust is built on solid ground?

Here are seven specific ideas for you to build more trust in your business in 2022.

Would you do business with someone you don’t trust?

Of course not!

Problem is, we don’t always know a business is trustworthy before we’re in too deep. 

What we initially view as trust is actually superficial. It’s built using toxic and twisted tactics to get us to a place where we think trust exists.

And those tactics are exactly how we’re taught to build an online business, which brings the question of how do we do this differently? How do we focus on building real, lasting trust with our community and clients?

In this episode, we’re digging into three commonly used online business practices that build, and ultimately break trust so you know exactly what to avoid.

Do you ever feel a disconnect from what you see going on in the world of online business and how you’re actually running your business? 

There’s so much chatter that seems to be focused on making more (and more and more) money that sometimes we can start to feel like maybe we’re not doing things right. 

Now, don’t get me wrong — running a business can be awesome. But having to unlearn and think critically about our own roles in the online business world and the world, in general takes work. 

So. Where do we begin? 

In this episode, I’m digging into what I’ll be increasingly focusing on in the year to come and giving you some concrete ideas for 2022 so you can do the same.
