Lessons Learned: 4 Things We'd Do Differently with Erica Courdae
43:41

Often in the world of content marketing, we witness what people did well, what their successes were, their wins, what worked.

But when we only get messages about what worked, it leaves behind the beauty and the lessons learned from what didn’t work and what we would do differently today.

Erica Courdae joins India for a discussion about failure, what they’d do over if they could, and why they’re actively viewing some of these events in a different way.

In this discussion:

  • What Erica and India wish they had done sooner
  • How fear of failure and self-trust have impacted their decisions
  • Why curiosity and willingness to experiment are essential to doing things differently

Consent Based Business Practices with Kelly Diels
50:32

Many of us have experienced a breach of consent.

Whether it’s the person who’s immediately in your DMs trying to sell you something the moment you added them as a connection on social media, or the person who gives you a hug that lasts a little too long when you reach out your hand for a handshake, we know what that breach feels like.

And the context for consent goes beyond bodily autonomy. Consent matters in our businesses.

Kelly Diels joins India to discuss integrating consent into your business, how the concept of refreshing consent has evolved the way she shows up online, and common mistakes and misconceptions around creating a culture of consent in your marketing.

Content Note: This episode contains non-detailed mentions of the experience childhood sexual violence.

In this discussion:

  • Why everyone has the power to shape culture in their lives and businesses
  • How to build consent in your marketing practices
  • How to use your newsletter to facilitate connection
  • The most common misconception about integrating consent into your marketing

Posting photos or stories about the kids in our lives has become habitual for many of us. We need to move away from making assumptions, and instead, toward a place of consent and autonomy. Pause on the Play®, The Community members Stacie Lampkin  and Shannon Collins have facilitated a workshop where they encourage folks to re-examine our approach in how we share about children in online spaces. 

Whether you have children in your life or not, this workshop will support you in reconsidering your why in how we interact with children from a place of respecting their full consent, especially around publicly posting private information.

​Integrating Values Into The Art Of Online Business with Rick Mulready
01:01:20

What would it mean to have a business that feels as good to you as it appears on the outside?

How would it feel to have a business that is aligned with your values and is creating and infusing those values into everything it does? That supports and protects people from all backgrounds, especially those who have underrepresented and marginalized identities? 

Rick Mulready joins India to reflect on his journey of bringing his values into his business and his podcast without sacrificing success or growth, and how his approach to integrating his values into the business continues to evolve over time.

In this discussion:

  • How to use your platform to explicitly communicate your values
  • How social media turns values into a shallow commodity used for approval
  • Why your values need to be infused into how you show up on your platform and in your content
  • Why conventional business advice isn’t for everyone, and how to let go of what doesn’t work for you

Self-worth, Marketing, and the Myth of More with Tara McMullin
01:02:23

If content is king, what is that leaving on the table?

We are living in a world where we’re told that we need to produce more and more to be witnessed, but the myth of more often comes at the expense of the quality and purpose of our content. What if we communicated for impact and transformation rather than just feeding the algorithm?

Tara McMullin joins India to discuss the evolution of her content, her business, and how distancing herself from the myth of more has impacted her work and creativity.

In this discussion:

  • How the process of filtering ourselves through content marketing impacts our sense of self
  • Why shifting your mindset about credibility from income to impact supports your integrity
  • How unhooking your self-worth from how you make money can open you up to opportunities and experiences
  • Why we need to build awareness of the stories behind our goals, values, and vision

Showing Up Authentically in the Speaking Industry with Evolve Benton and Erica Courdae
54:53

So often we have a desire to be visible. But there’s also a distinct lack of transparency in the visibility industry, whether you’re an influencer, a photographer, a model, a speaker, even musicians and actors.

It’s really challenging to figure out what other people charge. And what you should, could, or can charge to collaborate with a brand or appear as a speaker.

  • Why professional communities need to allow us to be our whole selves
  • How to set pricing that honors your capacity, needs, and the value you bring
  • Why asking for more is about more than just you

Showing up, Taking Up Space, and Telling Your Story with Hillary Rea

Storytelling is a powerful component of brand visibility.

Telling your story is an opportunity to connect more deeply with others–our people, our audience, our colleagues, our clients–and begin to humanize our brand.

29:26
When you think about the people and brands that have inspired you, they’ve all stood out. They’ve all been unique.

But on social media, there’s an energy of perfectionism and of fitting in.

How does perfectionism make us stand out? How does fitting in make us memorable? And how does that support the people witnessing us in feeling something?

The decision to show up and be visible requires courage.

Whether it’s your social media bio, on your website, or meeting someone at a networking event, we’re constantly being asked these questions of who are you, what do you do, what do you believe in, what do you value, what do you support, where are you going?

It all comes down to, who are you?

In this discussion:

  • Making intentional choices to design your identity
  • The mindset shifts and emotional challenges of going natural

  • Crediting creators and why branding your curated content is worth it

49. Dropping the veil with Erica Courdae
21:36

The first step toward living out loud personally and professionally is to drop the veil. But integrating all that honest visibility into your business, your brand, and your day-to-day can be challenging. No wonder.

Society has long kept women, Black folks, and people of color from showing up as fully realized, multi-faceted humans––to the point that we impose these restrictions on ourselves. Time to reclaim our agency, experiment with identity, and share our joy!

India is joined by her occasional co-host and co-founder of Pause On The Play The Community, Erica Courdae. Together, they explore how all of us can create impact by becoming more of ourselves through the liberating act of dropping the veil, which, coincidently, happens to be the name of their brand new virtual event.

In this discussion:

  • Aligning the soul of your brand with what the world sees
  • Making space for ease by promoting the work you genuinely want to do
  • Experimenting with and sharing what brings you joy
  • Rewriting the narrative around our past, present, and future selves
  • Letting go of expectations in favor of exploring possibilities in work, in life
  • Committing to the process of uncovering our genuine identity
  • Redefining personal and professional integrity
  • Introducing Dropping The Veil virtual event

44. Own your values: brand, company, and personal
24:07

Screw the template, own your values, and amplify your influence. While you may recognize the Flaunt Your Fire catchphrase, have you ever stopped to identify your values? Have you ever taken the time to express them in written form?

Clearly defined values are the foundation for everything within your brand. They inform how you engage with your team, your clients, your audience - and set standards by which those same entities can hold you accountable. In this solo conversation, India provides a primer on clarifying and communicating brand or company values with examples and ideas for further exploration.

In this discussion:

  • Defining the basics - values vs. beliefs
  • Demonstrating the difference - personal vs. brand values
  • When, where, and how to express both internal and forward-facing values
  • Words and actions that uphold values-driven decision making
  • How explicit values help you attract the best fit and hold you accountable
  • The growing client/consumer demand for transparency and values-informed choices 
  • Examples from FYF’s own values integration
  • Bringing our whole human self to the values process

42. Crafting content that makes your followers feel something
26:46

There’s so much content out there that’s intended to sell audiences on something, providing pros and cons, tips and tricks, or features and benefits. Creating content, however, that is designed to entice people to follow, listen, and subscribe to your brand, that gives them something to feel that will live on in their hearts forever -- that can be profoundly more challenging. For this discussion, India shares insight into crafting content that expresses your individuality, connects on an emotional level, and transforms your followers into superfans.

In this discussion:

  • Why heartfelt content is the most important content you can create
  • Examples from India’s life that provide context for crafting messaging that is divergent from what is expected
  • How stereotypes and assumptions diminish the power of our voice
  • The power of reclaiming our choices
  • The value of disrupting expectations

Join us over at Pause On The Play The Community for our March deep dive: Can You Feel It? Visibility That Entices Your People To Feel Something

Remember that bit about fitting in being easier than standing out? Visibility done differently takes time and concerted effort to craft. For less than $100 for one month, you’ll get to experience our March deep-dive via training, live community conversation, and a live coworking session. 

The Pause On The Play The Community is a space for people just like you whose brand and team (if you have one) have evolved, especially over the last year, but whose content no longer reverberates with the emotion inherent to that journey. The March 2021 theme is an experience made just for you, delivered so as not to feel in any way like what India’s business partner and DEI consultant Erica Courdae would call virtue signaling or centering or white saviorism, or saviorism of any sort for that matter. 

There’s so much value in doing this work under the professional guidance of India and Erica. Come on over to Pause On The Play The Community. You owe it to your brand. You owe it to yourself.

40. Using your voice can save someone’s life with Brittany Dunn, Safe House Project
30:39

Flaunt Your Fire brand values are front and center as India and Erica welcome Brittany Dunn, chief operating officer of Safe House Project. The organization’s mission to support survivors of human trafficking is especially meaningful to India. As a sexual assault survivor herself, she takes the opportunity and access afforded by FYF’s platform to increase awareness of those causes she holds dear. 

Survivors of human trafficking experience multiple traumas. They are forced to operate in plain sight yet invisible to those who could provide safety. Each survivor experiences a unique situation, but their stories share the same refrain: I was seen by many, I was ignored by most, and I was saved by one. Be the one.

In this discussion:

  • Why it benefits brands to communicate their core values to clients and customers
  • The origins of Safe House Project
  • Factors contributing to the low survivor identification rate in the United States
  • What trafficking looks like in real life scenarios
  • How shifting terminology and attitudes can break the cycle of survivor victimization
  • How to become “the one” via OnWatch™ Training, a free virtual program that teaches individuals to spot, report, and prevent human trafficking in their communities

If conversations about sexual violence in general and the sexual exploitation of children specifically trigger you, please pause your listening to take care with material and of yourself.

38. Pause. Responding to chaos and trauma in your messaging
11:00

At Flaunt Your Fire and Pause On The Play, we’ve been getting a flood of questions and concern about the events of Wednesday, January 6th in our nation’s Capitol. India and Erica are very grateful for those of you who have reached out, and wanted to offer some quick insights into how you, as a brand, can be responsive in the midst of the chaos and traumatic events.

  1. Pause. Check your automated social media schedulers. Audit your content to make sure that it’s not coming across as insensitive to what’s happening in the world.

  2. Breathe. Recenter yourself. Feel the emotions that are coming up - be they anger, outrage, fear... and do whatever you need to get to a place where you can respond more thoughtfully, rather than from a place of emotional reactivity. This doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t share your raw emotions. Rather, it’s being intentional about how you're doing that and why.

  3. Educate yourself. If you are planning on making a statement, educate yourself from reliable resources that are not opinions, but actual facts. Then decide: What is your brand stance on what's happening? And that will allow you to compose your thoughts and craft what you want to say?

  4. Respond with clarity and intention. Be clear on what you're hoping to convey, why you're saying it at this moment, and what your desired goal is. Avoid saying something because you feel you’re supposed to without understanding why. You also don’t need to filter yourself by tempering your response based on what everyone else is saying. No need to borrow from what we call, “The White Woman’s Handbook of Captions.” Instead, ask yourself if what you’re about to put out is really in your own words, and how a person from a marginalized group is going to feel reading, watching, or listening to that content right now.

  5. Be prepared. You will see some shifting of who shows up on your social media -- you will get some new follows, and some unfollows. 

Remember, marketing does not have to look any one specific way, even in the midst of trauma and chaos. Ultimately, if you do choose to use your voice, that says something. And if you choose not to, that also says something. It’s important to understand that no matter what you do or don’t say, you're saying something. You have an opportunity to decide whether or not you want your message to be crafted for you without your input, or whether you want to own it, and make it happen consciously and with intention.

37. From A Single Sale To Brand Superfans
48:09

Flaunt Your Fire has always promoted relationships over numbers. And today we’re here to disrupt what you may think you know about affiliate marketing.

It’s not just about a transaction. It’s not just for influencers. And you don’t have to have a huge following to benefit from an affiliate program. Our guest, Laura Sprinkle, is here to break down some myths about the industry and share how any business can utilize the power of relationships in this way.

Laura Sprinkle teaches entrepreneurs how to grow their businesses using strategic, high-touch partnerships through her signature training, Rock Your Affiliate Program™.

She’s helped industry leaders such as Amy Porterfield, Selena Soo, and Todd Herman build their partner programs, has seen over $12 million in partner revenues come in through her methods, and supported thousands of partners across dozens of industries. Her motto is “Partnerships First, Fun Always,” and she sprinkles that message throughout everything she does.

Laura’s been mentioned in Amy’s Online Marketing Made Easy podcast and has been a featured expert for Selena Soo’s year-long mastermind, at events, and on podcasts. She loves sharing about affiliate partnerships, thoughtful business connections, branding, and marketing. She lives in Portland, Maine, and you’ll usually find her sipping on a maple latte at her favorite coffee shop, or at the park chasing her daughter Cadlee. (You’ll recognize Laura by her infectious laugh.)

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL HEAR HOW:

  • To create demand through an affiliate program if you have an evergreen product or service,
  • The real numbers behind most commission structures,
  • Why people with under 100 people on their list are often more successful with affiliates than those with thousands, and
  • How your ability to ask for help is tied to your success.

33. Visibility and success for highly sensitive people with Lola Pickett
01:05:37

Right now our world could use more emotionally attuned leaders. From being able to see things others can’t see to being highly attuned to others’ needs, these individuals have rare gifts. So why is it that highly sensitive people have a hard time being visible?

That’s the topic of conversation on today’s episode with Lola Pickett. Through her courses and programs, Lola empowers empaths and sensitive folk to rewire their brains, bodies, and behavior for internal and external and external resilience, shifting from self repression to soul expression.

19:25

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, India Jackson speaks her mind about speaking up and taking a stand for yourself and your brand. If you don’t make a choice and draw a line in the sand, it will be done for you.

There’s never been a better time to let go of concerns about follower count. Your stand may repel some followers. That’s okay. You’ll attract the ones that matter most. Polarization can be a good thing, a necessary thing to draw clear distinctions.

Now is the time.

9. Allow us to reintroduce ourselves
41:30

Erica and India have been friends for over 10 years. Each has her own business…and they have one together. They’re powerful on their own, but when they’re able to join forces… Look out, world!

Erica Courdae is a coach, helping clients with their diversity, equity, and inclusion journey around ethics, beliefs, and values. Think of her work as focusing on the intangibles.

India’s business, Flaunt Your Fire, produces tangibles — like logos, websites, brand colors, visuals, photography, social media management — that are rooted in a strategy that will portray your message in a way that’s receivable to your audience.

Combine the two, and you get two-on-one coaching and consulting. Accountability, action, implementation, and customization sets them apart. Coaching (Erica) + Consulting (India) = faster results that are aligned with your values and ethics.

7. From stage fright to flaunting my fire
27:51

In today’s episode, India shares a personal story of how she said no to the negative self-talk inside her head so that she could be a better version of herself. She had been a model, had posed for photographers, had her picture in magazines, yet she had stage fright. This story takes her from behind the camera and new to the gym to being on stage in a body-building competition.

The takeaways from today’s story will serve you whether you’re into fitness or not. Knowing when to ask for help, taking action in the face of fear, and practicing — lots of repetition — will get you there.

6. Are you censoring yourself?
35:35

Is it possible to be authentic and censor yourself for other people’s feelings? In this episode, we conclude…no. Stepping into your light and censoring yourself don’t go together.

A private conversation between Erica and India inspired this episode. It’s something nearly every sensitive person struggles with from time to time and something entrepreneurs struggle with almost daily. It’s basically this — offending others with your authenticity.

Consider + ask yourself

  • Do you worry about triggering your ideal clients with your authenticity?

  • Are you afraid of polarizing potential clients?

  • Do you paralyze yourself for fear of taking the next step imperfectly?

In today’s episode we dive into how to be true to ourselves while knowing that we might offend others. It’s about owning what’s ours and letting others own what’s theirs. Join us as we sort out this tricky topic.
