Freeing the world from Depression as a professional badass with Christina Kwan
44:48

In this episode, Swapna talks to Christina on :


1. Going from being depressed and suicidal to becoming a depression coach. Feeling the fear and doing it. 

2. How is what Christina does different from therapy and how does someone know that they need to work with her and not just a therapist? 

3. What does marketing something like depression take? There are many topics that feel hard to market. What inner work has it taken for Christina to be really bold in her messaging and talk about heavy stuff like suicide ideation? And does she ever get any pushback and how does she deal with it?

4. One of the things Swapna loved on Christina's website was this phrase; Get rid of depression, forever. Most coaches underplay their results but making this statement in your copy shows the belief one has in their process and themselves. How does someone cultivate this level of belief in their work?

3 Success Traps Keeping You Stuck In Your Business
17:02

You can access the complete workshop here : 

https://view.flodesk.com/pages/6343ee0f12fa5e426dd84123

I created this workshop because I was tired of the 


  • 6-step frameworks which make you think that there’s one right way. 
  • Next shiny thing syndrome: People jumping from reels to TikTok to something else because the marketing gurus said so. 
  • Sheer overwhelm by things that are NOT required 


Because I fell for all of these in my business. And burnt myself out. 

When I ask people why they don’t have the business they want these are some of the things I hear again and again 

My elevator pitch is not perfect

I don’t know FB ads

My audience just doesn’t buy

I don’t have enough people in my audience

I haven’t done it before 

I did it but I don’t know how to repeat this

I need to put in more (Hours, energy, experience) 

When you have these thoughts this is how it shows up as working harder, doing more and firehosing yourself with learning. 

The real problem is a lack of enoughness. So you do everything you can to prove to the world that you are enough. But what it actually does is it makes success feel out of reach because when you give control of your enoughness to others, you will never feel enough. 

And even if you get some success you’ll attribute it to things or people basically outside of you, so you never feel like you can recreate it with ease or your brain will move the goal post further along and it feeds your non-enoughness even more. 

This is because of the 3 Success Traps that are keeping you stuck. Let’s dive into the episode to learn about the success traps.

Raising prices, money mindset and 6 figure freedom business with Sarah Mac
42:42

In this episode Swapna and Sarah talk about all things money mindset :

  • How has Sarah’s relationship WITH MONEY changed over time as she has gone from working for someone else to working for herself and now as a money mindset mentor? 
  • One of Sarah’s podcast episodes is called “Why you making money is important for everyone.” Having been through a pandemic, seeing many economies crumbling down, and being constantly told that a recession is looming and capitalism as it is, feels unsustainable, Swapna feels that the message of “making money is important for everyone” is very relevant right now and they discuss Sarah’s perspective on it. 

  • Pricing is something most people have a lot of mental drama about. Whether it’s pricing something or raising your prices or sharing those prices with clients, it can send people into a tizzy. We listen to Sarah’s take on pricing and especially the “charge your worth” narrative in the coaching industry. 


  • Get to know some of Sarah’s favourite ways to rewire thoughts about money.

Are you HUMBLE Marketing?
10:36

Humble Marketing is when you are marketing, you are doing all the things but in a timid way. Sort of like being a wallflower. 

You are not really taking up space. You don’t fully own your genius and easily attribute your success to other people or circumstances. 

You find it hard to celebrate your wins and sometimes even hide them. You are not sharing your REAL thoughts on your niche or what’s really keeping your clients from what they desire. And you turn all shades of red and try to deflect every time someone gives you a compliment. 

9 out of 10 times this is what I know my clients are doing if they have been stuck at the same level for a while.

In this episode, we will dive into what does Humble Marketing look like, why you do it and how to turn it around. 

If you are DONE with Humble Marketing and SO READY to step up as the leader you are, then there’s something very exciting for you. 

On 19th October,  Swapna is running a free & powerful 90-minute workshop called Market Like A Leader where she will take you through the framework of how to sell your offers out without burning yourself out. 

She has previously run this as a challenge and over 200 people have gone through this.  I have now up-levelled this into a highly implementable practical workshop.

In this powerful workshop you'll learn :

  • The 3 SUCCESS TRAPS that are sucking the life out of your business and keeping you stuck at the same level.
  • 5 thoughts sabotaging your marketing & sales right now.
  • 5 BRAVE shifts to step into your fully expressed & successful leader identity.
  • The HUSTLE-PROOF marketing plan to sell out your offers

Plus Swapna’ll be doing a few hot seat coaching sessions which is going to be SO much fun!

You are not meant to work with everyone.

Stop trying to become FUTURE YOU
16:43

If you have been in the online coaching world you might have done those ‘future-you’ meditations and you might have felt that pressure to imagine yourself as someone who is a world apart from you, who is so much more confident so much more decisive and a lot more sorted.

Your belief is probably based on the idea that you, as you are today, aren't capable of achieving the visions or goals you have for yourself. However, I suggest that the person you are today and the person you will become are very similar.

Today's episode of brave marketing is about changing your perspective towards yourself as we're going to discuss the concept of becoming the future you and why it's not something to chase.

Hear me -  you are ready now, you are capable now, and whatever you desire is possible now!

With these thoughts jump into today's episode to know more

How to do a belief audit for more clients & sales
18:56

In this episode, I’m sharing a process that has been a game changer for my business and it was the thing that took me from making a couple of thousand dollars to $10K months. 

I call it the BELIEF AUDIT.

Your beliefs about your business, marketing, sales, clients and YOU are driving your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and actions. If you want to change any of these, you have to work at changing the underlying beliefs.

But before you can change them, you have to be aware of them.

Just like a financial audit is important for the fiscal health and profitability of your business, a belief audit is important to see whether the beliefs running the show are largely positive or negative.

In this episode, I will take you through understanding what beliefs are, how they show up in your business, how to do a belief audit, and how to start shifting your beliefs in the favour of your

What to do when you feel discouraged by low social media engagement
12:42

I am sure most online coaches are using social media as a tool to grow their business and engage their audience. It might be the same for you. But what might be coming in your way are Algorithms!

Platform-specific algorithms are a tough nut to crack. 

But what if instead of losing out on them, there is another way of working around them?

What if instead of fighting the algorithm, we can flow with it?

Here’s the thing - algorithms by default are built to evolve and constantly change. 

So the question is- are you too evolving with them or are stuck in your belief system?

Hop on with me in this week’s episode where I am sharing four mindset shifts that will help you get through lower engagement rates on social media and focus on what's really important.

Overnight success is a gimmick.

But consistent and repeatable success came only when I broke some rules that I thought were sacrosanct in marketing.

I am sharing in this episode THREE of such rules that I broke to create a consistent 5-figure income in my business.
