Why Less is More

Less is more… We’ve all heard this phrase, but do you actually know what it means and why it’s true?

The phrase less is more means that having just the essential things is better than having way too much of superfluous things.

It allows you to focus on what matters.

Recently I sat down to lunch with the lovely Kit Whelan, co-founder of 7in7 Digital Nomad Conference, which is an amazing vision of 7 conferences being held in 7 continents over 7 years!

I am actually honoured to be a keynote speaker at the 7in7 conference in Wellington, New Zealand happening 22-28 October.

I’m going to be speaking about prioritizing what matters the most in your life and will definitely be touching on LifePilot and what it’s meant to living with intention and making my dreams a reality.

Kit told me that after this event, they’re holding a Reading Retreat in a castle in Scotland, which to me sounds simply delicious.

And it clearly did to others too as it sold out in a day, and for good reason, because people are craving to take time out and give themselves permission to simply do less.

Getting Clear on Your Perfect Day

Personally, one of my perfect days, consists of jam-packing as much as I can from 6am to 9pm at night, but that’s because I’m energized by living life to the full.

This includes meeting like-minded friends, training for my triathlon, working on my business, interviewing guests for my podcast, and spending time playing with my gorgeous dogs.

To others, that probably seems freaking exhausting.

How I make all those things work is by managing my time well and prioritising what matters.

I also realized that while I pack in a bunch in my life, I also do this in my work and in the way I teach and I’m guilty of trying to over deliver by delivering too much!

So with my new Launch Your Damn Course Accelerator, which I’m running three sold out cohorts of right now, I’ve made a considered effort to simplify to the essentials.

As you can imagine, teaching a course about preselling and launching your own online course could be super overwhelming when you consider all the moving parts involved that I need to teach.

So, as Leading Learner, my job is to teach them how to do less but get more meaningful results.

It seems to be working, by through my intentional design of the accelerator, and my students are accomplishing so much.

The importance of taking time to chill out

I’m a fan of jam-packing as much as I can into each day, but I also know the importance of taking some downtime and just chilling out.

That’s why I’m pretty excited to take a truly decent break in December.

I’ll be lounging around, enjoying nature, and reading books – basically just resting up after my half Ironman.

My upcoming break got me thinking…

I haven’t done a retreat in a while, so I’m planning to hold one next year in 2020 because I adore imagining and designing these experiences and then making them a reality.

In the past I’ve called them the ‘Freedom Retreat’ and in addition to fpcusing on business and mindset, I’d also add in special experiences like massages, taking cooking lessons, and relaxing.

But, what if next year’s retreat was the ‘Less is More’ retreat where we focus on taking a break while still envisioning your best life by focusing on having a great mindset – basically taking LifePilot to the next level.

If you’re interested in joining me early April 2020 in Bali for a ‘Less is More’ retreat, send me a DM on Instagram or shoot me an email at natalie@nataliesisson.com saying “Heck yeah to Bali!”

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why and how less is more
  • How I manage my time so that jam-packed days don’t feel exhausting
  • Why taking a break can be beneficial to you and your business
  • About information for my next retreat

How to Build a Business on YouTube

Ever look at YouTube stars and wonder: how the heck do they actually make money from YouTube and more importantly, how did they build a business on this platform?

Well, on this episode of Untapped, I had the treat of chatting with Aaron Nace, founder of PHLEARN, about how he built his YouTube channel from the ground up into a full-time business.

I’m pretty excited to share this interview with you because I’ve never had the chance to speak to someone that has a YouTube channel with almost 1.8 million subscribers.

In our interview, Aaron shares his journey from being an independent photographer and photo retoucher to building his company PHLEARN, which provides accessible photography and Photoshop lessons to people around the world through their video tutorials.

Since starting PHLEARN in 2011, Aaron has turned what used to be just a creative passion into his full time business.

This is another great example of how online content creators are transforming their side hustles into their main sources of incomes. 

What’s really neat about Aaron’s journey is how he was able to build a business on YouTube from the ground up.

He saw an industry that was booming, yet the online space seemed to lack the tools and education for all the people who wanted to get into that industry.

So, he took all the techniques he learned over the years as a professional photographer and started releasing video tutorials for free.

Once he realized that people were actually invested in what he had to teach, Aaron decided to offer more advanced lessons as part of a paid subscription service on his company’s website.

He found his sweetspot of what he’s passionate about, what he can offer, and what people are willing to pay for – an awesome example of how you can get paid to be you!

To hear Aaron’s secrets to YouTube success and all the details on how he built a business on YouTube, make sure to tune in to the full episode!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How to develop your business from the ground up on YouTube.
  • How to turn your creative passion into a full-time job.
  • How to find a balance between your business and private life.
  • Why it’s important to focus on your team as much as your clients.
  • Tips on how to grow your channel on YouTube

6 Lessons Starting a Podcast Has Taught Me

Over the years, I’ve learned so many lessons from starting a podcast.

When I started one back in 2011, I didn’t expect just how much joy it would bring me and how much value it would add to my life.

So, in honour of International Podcast Day, I wanted to share the 6 lessons starting a podcast has taught me. If you’re thinking of starting one or thinking about giving up on yours, then this episode is definitely for you.

Now, some people might say that there are too many podcasts out there and the medium is oversaturated, but guess what?

People have been saying the same exact thing since when I started my first podcast back in 2011!

There might be a ton of podcasts out there, but that shouldn’t discourage you from sharing your unique voice with people who truly need to hear what you have to say.

6 Lessons I Learned From Starting a Podcast

Starting a podcast has given me so many amazing opportunities to chat with guests who intrigue and fascinate me. It’s like having my own personal team of mentors that I get to chat with each week!

Another thing I love about podcasts is the versatility of them.

The quality of podcasts has gone through the roof within the last few years alone, and some have whole production crews and hefty budgets behind them.

This means they’re just so much better to listen to, because they’re scripted, researched and so well produced as engaging stories – almost like going back to good ol’ radio series.

Lesson 1: Podcasts are amazing for personal development and learning.

Whether you prefer having guests on your podcast to interview, or prefer offering solo episodes where you teach and share, podcasts are sure to make YOU learn and develop.

If you decide to have guests on your podcast, then you’d obviously be learning from their experiences and perspectives, which is an awesome way to keep expanding your mind.

Whereas researching topics on your own and sharing your personal experiences can also be a great way to develop and go deeper into researching these topics beforehand too.

Personally, I love both of these styles.

Lately, I’ve been loving having people come on my Untapped podcast and share their unique experiences and outlooks on topics that relate to what I try to teach everyday: how to get paid to be you.

The people that I usually invite on my show are people I find fascinating and who have something to teach both me and you.

These guests have done some incredible things and have so many gold nuggets of wisdom that I absolutely love sharing with all of you who tune in.

While my style of podcasting is more of an informal conversation, where I do a little bit of background research and then ask questions during the interview that I’m really curious about, I also think more formatted and planned out interviews can be successful, too.

Lesson 2: Podcasts make you more disciplined and consistent.

Podcasts have been the one medium that I’ve been able to be consistent with since the early days of my business.

That’s not a coincidence.

In fact, podcasts are incredibly great tools for making you become more disciplined and committed to producing content on a consistent basis.

When I first started out at podcasting, I was super inconsistent. But, knowing that my listeners were expecting a new episode each week forced me to stick to a schedule and have everything released by their deadlines.

Over the years I worked out that batching 3-5 interviews in a day or two was a way more productive method, so that I have 6-8 weeks worth of content on hand, and can plan my promotions around them too.

This also helps everyone on my team to get all of their tasks done in advance so that nothing slips through the cracks.

I’ve also been able to create an incredible SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) that is super detailed and precise so that anyone who joins my team will immediately know how to create, publish, and promote the podcast.

We have also have a Podcast template in Asana, that brings the SOP to life, where everyone on my team is assigned to their respective tasks and they can mark off once they’ve completed the next step.

If you’ve been struggling to put out content and stick to your schedule, I highly recommend using a podcast to get you back on track!

Lesson 3: Podcasts are fantastic business tools.

The fact that you have people turning up each week to listen to what you have to say is a powerful testament to how podcasts can be used to grow your business.

Podcasts build up your credibility, authority, and integrity in whatever it is you want to share or teach.

For me, I make sure my episodes focus on how to tap into your potential, get paid to be you, and design your life and work to have purpose.

My listeners can count on learning something that will help them in these areas whenever they tune in to an episode of Untapped.

And I’ve learned that when your audience feels like they can trust and learn from you, they’re more likely to become clients or customers.

It’s also more likely that people will recommend your podcasts to other people, which cultivates a truly wonderful cycle of engagement and exposure.

Lesson 4: Podcasts are great revenue-generating tools.

Along with being fantastic business tools, podcasts are also great tools for generating revenue.

With tons of sponsorships and advertisement opportunities out there nowadays, you could easily create an extra revenue stream for yourself.

Personally, I like to keep my podcasts advert free, but I have had great (and lucrative) sponsorships in the past, that I worked with who were relevant and helpful for my audience.

I never promote anything just for the sake of promoting it, and I like to think that has helped build up my credibility. I’m very choosy about what I recommend.

Aside from advertising and sponsorships, podcasts are also wonderful avenues for promoting your own products and offerings.

So, not only could you generate a revenue stream from promoting things you really love and use on a daily basis, but you could also generate a more active revenue stream by promoting your own offers to an audience you know will be interested!

Lesson 5: Podcasts create lasting friendships and bonds.

The people that I’ve met over the years on my show and other shows are unforgettable.

I may have forgotten the shows I’ve been on, or the specifics on what we talked about, but I never forget the bonds that I make with the people I’ve interviewed or been interviewed by.

I love giving people a platform to share their stories, and I know that I’ve been grateful to others who have done the same for me.

It’s really important for us as creators to support one another, and it’s a total win-win situation.

So, if you have been a guest on any of my podcasts, or if I was a guest on yours, this one is for you and I’d love to have you back on my show or come back on yours!

Also, a special shout out to Rolly, my podcast editor, who has been listening to my voice for quite some time now and always delivers fantastic final episodes. Thank you for the work that you do!

Lesson 6: Podcasts allow your voice to be heard.

Looking at the stats for my podcast, there are people listening in to my podcast from around 100 countries.

Crazy, right?

That’s the incredible power of podcasts!

They allow you to distribute your voice, your message, and your experiences all across the globe to tons of diverse communities.

That is a gift.

That is a privilege.

And, really, all I have to do is a hold a mic and start recording.

So, if you have something to say, say it.

I promise you, you’ll be surprised at how many people will want to listen.

How to Turn Content Creation Into Side Hustles

Side hustles – could they really replace your full time income?

You bet they can. In fact creating your own side hustle is becoming quite the trend. With bestselling books like Side Hustle: From idea to income in 27 days my friend Chris Guillebeau just released, and there are many blogs and podcasts dedicated to it.

Having a side hustle is a great way to test and validate that what you want to build is actually going to fly, before you quit your job or throw your life savings into a business that hasn’t made a sale yet!

Judging from a State of the Side Hustle survey of over 2,000 people done by Podia this year, the online course/ digital downloads/membership space is only going to grow in the foreseeable future, as more folks are looking to leave their full time employment to make a go of creating passive income than ever before.

If you’re a content creator who’s been looking to make a profit from your side hustles, then this episode of Untapped is perfect for you, as Len Markidan, Chief Marketing Officer at Podia, dives right into the juicy details.

We chat about how the creator economy is booming and that this is causing employers to be terrified.

And rightly so, as I keep harping on about in my podcasts on how to tap into the future of work and designing your own ideal lifestyle with multiple work gigs!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Just how many content creators are looking to quit their day jobs and replace their full-time income with their side hustles
  • How many of the creators survey have a day job and how many of them plan to quit to become a full-time creator.
  • Of those creators who plan to quit their jobs, how so they plan to leave them!
  • The 3 most common channels for monetization right now
  • How passion, profit and potential all fit together as a content creator
  • How Podia helps content creators sell their digital products in one easy-to-use platform
  • Why you should consider taking your side hustle and turning it into your full-time gig.

The Art of Changing Your Business with Julia Kelly

What does changing your business actually look like? As in starting a new business in a completely different industry and having a totally new offering?

Can you make such a big leap and be successful? What does it take to make not only the shift but the mindset shift?

 On this episode of Untapped, I got to hear all about what it takes from Julia Kelly, co-Founder of Rigits, a remote bookkeeping services company.

 Yet just a few years ago Julia had started gone from being a successful caricature artist to building a whole business and team around doing this for corporates and at events.

In fact I interviewed her about it on my Suitcase Entrepreneur podcast on Debunking the Starving Artist Myth, as I thought her story was really cool.

It’s a perfect example of how Julia took her skills she learned in a job she applied for, and turned it into a side hustle and then a full blown business that almost runs without her.

Now she has a completely different business and a new team, and is well aware that she needs to remain relevant in an industry being very much affected by the future of work – in that accountants are being replaced with systems and automation.

If you tuned into my podcast Embracing the Future of the Future with Frances Valintine then you’ll learn just how quickly the world is changing and adapting to the way in which we are working and who’s doing the work.

Julia is well aware of that and we discussed how they’re adapting to stay relevant and thrive in this new era, and in many ways she’s always been adapting and following her heart.

 Julia’s journey began in college where she started her solopreneur career of being a caricature artist. She was able to grow her skills into a six-figure business and hired other artists as well.

However, after a year, Julia realized that she wasn’t being challenged anymore and that her successful business (which she’s still running today) was not going to be able to grow anymore.

 So what did she do next?

She went back to her roots as a graduate with a B.A. in Accounting and teamed up with a friend and started a company that does bookkeeping and accounting for small businesses and startups.

It was a completely different realm of work from the caricature business, but Julia found it to be exciting plus it tapped into her sweetspot of her accounting knowledge and what she knew would be profitable to her AND beneficial to her clients. 

By taking a risk and changing her business, Julia was able to have a business that had a recurring revenue model – something that her caricature business lacked. She also found that she thrived in having a team and didn’t enjoy being a lone wolf after all.

If you’re also in a rut and feel like you’re not progressing or enjoying your work anymore, definitely check out the full interview to learn more about the art of changing your business and how to tap into your potential!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What it’s like to go from a solo operation to being in a partnership and having employees
  • Why Julia started another business in a completely different industry and what she learned by doing it
  • How to juggle two businesses by having one on autopilot
  • The most common mistakes business owners make with money and how to avoid them

Embracing the Future of the Future with Frances Valintine

What is the future of the future? And how the heck can you be a part of it so that you’re not left behind in the past?

That is the topic of my conversation on this episode of the Untapped Podcast with the one and only Frances Valintine, founder of The Mind Lab & Tech Futures Lab.

Frances is one heck of a mover and shaker. And she believes that we’re living in a time of great advancement as well as rapid disruption. She believes that the progress and the ability to look forward and plan for tomorrow is essential for long term success.

Frances is at the cutting edge of what we need to do to stay relevant as we move into a new era filled with uncertainty as technology takes over our jobs allowing us to essentially tap into more of our human skills.

If you listened to Episode 32 – The Future of Work Is Learning, I shared what the future of work really is, the major trends and forces shaping it and why it’s more important than ever to become a lifelong learner and keep upskilling to remain relevant and ahead of the curve.

Frances takes us even further because she is living and breathing this. At the time of our interview, she had just finished up the Future of the Future conference that she hosted where she interviewed all these incredible people on stage.

What I love about Frances is that she’s extremely forward thinking by the way she looks at how we reinvigorate our existing skills, adopt new practices, and integrate people who think differently in our businesses.

As the founder and CEO of The Mind Lab & Tech Futures Lab, Frances works in the space between the whole ecosystem of learners from young children to experienced corporate leaders.

While Tech Futures Lab helps organisations and individuals to navigate the contemporary world of business, The Mind Lab was developed to empower students, schools, teachers and principals to develop contemporary knowledge and practical skills for today’s rapidly evolving world and the future of work.

She knows that our economic success has a greater reliance on people who can combine science, technology, design and creativity in ways that we are only just starting to realize.

So in our interview, we discuss a lot of those things. And I think you are going to find it fascinating. I hope it’s going to open your eyes, expand your mind, and really get you thinking about what role you are going to play in the future of work and just how you can thrive in it.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What the future of work looks like and what that means for you
  • Why reinvigorating your skills and learning new skills is vital now more than ever
  • How to thrive and remain relevant in the rapidly evolving world
  • Frances’ journey to become one of the most influential leaders in New Zealand

The Future of Work is Learning

The Future of Work is learning – what does that mean?

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m all about staying relevant and keeping up with the ever-changing world of the way in which we work and live.

The thing is, those changes are coming at us fast and many of the trends we see happening in the future of work are already here.

Robots and AI are already being used to automate and streamline jobs, and it’s predicated by the OECD that 14-30% of jobs as we know them will not even exist in the next 5 years.

So it’s more important than ever that we figure out how to ramp up our skills, particularly our uniquely human-centered skills, to stay relevant and be irreplaceable!

The good news is around 70% of new jobs will be created, most of which we can’t even predict yet. Crazy right?

That means by continuing to learn new skills and gain more experience, we have more chance of thriving in the future of work, rather than just surviving.

On today’s episode of Untapped, I’m sharing a recording of the talk I gave at an Inspire Group, an online learning and leadership company.

The purpose of this event was to inform our clients about what’s about to head their way and what they need to start thinking about when it comes to learning solutions for the future.

It was also a great way to showcase all the trends that are coming up and how the Future of Work IS learning.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What the Future of Work actually is
  • How automation can and will benefit us
  • How we can collaborate effectively with the robots
  • What changes and trends have already started to happen

How to Discover a Whole New Life with Lucia Gionvannini

Are you at a point in your life where you’re really not feeling it? 

The career you’ve chosen and the business you have is not as fulfilling as you wanted. Yet maybe to the outside world, it looks like you’ve got it all together. But inside, you’re feeling like there’s a deeper calling that you’re not paying attention to. 

Everything is pointing you towards actually doing that by tapping into your calling and making a bigger impact in the world. 

On this episode of Untapped, I got to chat with the charming Lucia Giovannini and learned how she tapped into her true calling and discovered a whole new life.

Lucia Giovannini is a yogi, life coach, fire-walking instructor and former Italian super-model.

Lucia started modeling by accident quickly realizing that career was bringing her all a girl could hope for, yet it still left her feeling unfulfilled. So after several years, she went on her own healing journey. It was back in the 80-s when she’d get other models to sit with her in a dressing room, chanting “Om”.

Lucia went within, going barefoot for a year, and immersing herself into healing practices. One of the first transformational speakers in Italy, she was soon regarded as the “Louise Hay of Italy”. Her book “A Whole New Life” sold thousands of copies around Europe and was translated into 8 languages.

She’s someone who has had a very successful career but decided to take the leap and embrace her true calling to embark on a whole new life. Definitely something I can relate to!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The tools that can help you remove the barriers that are stopping you from following your true calling
  • Lucia’s thoughts on making radical changes in your life
  • What tangible steps you can take to transform your thoughts and beliefs
  • Lucia’s advice on how to discover a whole new life

7 Lessons I’ve Learned from Finding My Next Finish Line

Recently I had the honour of being invited to go and speak in front of around 80 to 90 Ultimate Frisbee players, who were trying out to be selected for the New Zealand teams for the World Championships in Netherlands next year.

For those of you who don’t know, I have been an Ultimate Frisbee player for the last 16 years. It’s been a long held passion of mine and it was really neat to be asked to come and speak at this  training camp about finding your finish line, which is a big tribute to Nathan Martin, my triathlon coach from this podcast we did.

The talk I gave was specifically related to being your best self, pushing yourself, challenging yourself, crushing your goals and setting intentions that keep you motivated.

I decided you may need to hear this too, so I’ve recreated it here for you both as a full blog post and an episode on my Untapped Podcast.
