READ THE FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPT
Hey there and welcome to the she Calls Her Shots podcast. Every week, we chat through different business building topics that will help you gain clarity around your goals, find inspiration in your journey and also help you create a life and a business that you love. My name is Krista and I’m a wedding and brand photographer and you’re a go-to, no fluff business coach. In these episodes we talk through both the tactical strategies, habits and the mindset work that will help you take those really big leaps, and we always focus on the real talk and the behind the scenes of what it takes to create a sustainable and a thriving business, because, let’s be honest, the work isn’t always glamorous, but it’s always worth it. So, girlfriend, let’s make some moves and start calling our own shots. Hello, my friend, and welcome back to the podcast. I am so excited to be recording again.
We are back officially from our summer break. I guess we can call it that. It’s been a couple months and it’s interesting because that break wasn’t necessarily planned. It wasn’t something that I thought I was going to take, but I listened to my body, I listened to myself and it was something that I needed. And so we’re calling it a summer break and late summer break, but here we are and I’m so excited to be recording again. I have some really amazing podcast episodes lined up for you that will be released over the next couple of weeks. So welcome back. As always, thank you for being here, and I wanted to pop in with just this quick little episode because I have some updates to share.
First off, if you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I have been going through an Enneagram certification program, and if you’re not familiar with the Enneagram, it is one of in my opinion, probably the best, but it is one of the tools that you can use on a self-development journey. There are a lot of assessment tools out there. You might have heard of Myers-Briggs or Strengths Finders or any of those kind of personality tools that are really good about telling you about your personality type kind of depicting your personality and telling you about your personality type. The thing that I love about the Enneagram is that it’s more than just a personality assessment. It really gets deeper into what are our core motivations, what are our drives, what drives us to actually perceive things the way that we do, to go after certain types of things? What are our core motivators? What are our core desires, what are our core fears. It really dives in a lot deeper than a lot of the I’m going to call them more surface level personality tests, which just kind of talk about your actions and the way that you kind of go about in the world, whereas the Enneagram really is able to dig so much deeper and accurately help you understand what motivates you, what drives you.
So because of that, it is something that I have used personally in my own life for the last probably six years. It was the first time that I ever felt so fully seen when taking any sort of test like this. I don’t know if the time didn’t understand the difference or how much deeper the Enneagram goes than other kind of personality tests, but it was the first time I’ve ever felt so seen and understood by taking a test, and so I’m so excited to share. I’m just in my last final few weeks of my certification program for that. It has been so wonderful, not only to learn more about my type I’m an Enneagram 9 to dig deeper into what that means for me and how I can use that in my life and in my business, but also learn about all of the other nine types, while all of the other eight types and dig deeper and learn into what are the things that make each type unique, what are individual superpowers, what are the things that really make us stand out from each other? And so it’s just been such a wonderful journey to go on, and I’m so excited to be able to be officially certified and being able to work with that, with my clients.
Which brings me to my second update, which is that I am so incredibly excited to share that I will be launching a brand new coaching program, and it’s not really going to be that different. I mean, it’s still going to be a structured coaching program that I’ll offer with clients, but it is going to be specifically focused around the Enneagram. And if you’re not familiar with the Enneagram, if you are like I don’t know that I’d want to do that because that sounds really intense. I want to let you know that, like it is not as intense as it might sound. Really, the core motivator behind why I wanted to create this Enneagram coaching program is because, if you are anything like me, I have invested I’m talking hundreds, if not thousands, definitely thousands of dollars in courses, programs, workshops, coaching, mentors I mean you name it. I have probably invested in it, and while some of them definitely did bring some great learnings and things that I was able to incorporate into my business, there is a common thread here between all of the programs that I have purchased and workshops and courses that they only were able to teach me certain strategies or certain things right, like based on someone else’s ideas. So, for example, when you’re learning from a coach, typically they’re going to be teaching new strategies and things that have worked for them Right, like.
A lot of the times, people are coaching based off of their own experience, which is great. There’s nothing wrong with that. But after investing thousands of dollars and sometimes even getting step by step instructions on how to, you know, reach the same level of success or how to do things like another business owner or another coach has done them, I’ve realized both in my own journey and in my client’s journey that that doesn’t always work super well, like it’s not always the best way for someone to grow a business based on someone else’s experience or someone else’s version of success, because even if we implement everything to a T, if we go step by step into doing what someone has taught us how to do it either, it ends in a few different ways. Either one it’s it works, but it’s completely unsustainable and not enjoyable. Right, so, like you might actually see success, you might get the results, but you become so burnt out and not enjoying the process that it’s just not something that’s sustainable and you end up being almost resentful of your business because you don’t want to do that work anymore. Or what I see happen a lot of the time is you implement it. You feel like you’re spinning your wheels, you’re doing all of the things that people are telling you to do and yet you’re not seeing the results. And we start to make that a story about ourselves. That must mean that I’m not doing it right, I’m not good enough, I’m you know, insert XYZ story that we start to believe about ourselves and our capabilities and what that means about us. And so I wanted to create this program that is specifically geared towards writing that right, like fixing this problem and kind of tackling this head on in working with, with women business owners like you, like everyone listening in and just really helping you narrow down.
What is it? What are your superpowers? Right? Let’s get super clear. We’ll do an Enneagram typing session so we’ll know what your type is. There won’t be any confusion around that. I’ll help guide you through the. You know the process of taking the assessment and doing the typing session so that you can feel confident.
A in knowing your type and also just learning about your type. What does that mean? Right, like, if you are a type two, what does that mean? If you’re a type five, what does that mean? And so, kind of digging into some of the, the higher and levels of the Enneagram, kind of surface level. What is this and what does this mean? But then working with you to get super granular on, okay, amazing.
Now, how do we take what we know about you, your experience, your experience in your business, your, your motivators, your, the things, your values, right, like, how do we get so clear on those things to then bring it into your business? Right, how do we create strategies in your business that are not just focused on seeing the results, because someone told you that you know to do XYZ process or you know spinning your wheels, trying to be all the places so that you can, like, get there faster? Right, like, let’s not focus on those goals, let’s focus on getting really clear on what feels really good for you, what’s going to feel sustainable, what’s going to let you up and get you so excited that of course you’re going to be showing up more on social media, of course you’re going to be talking about your offers more, of course you’re going to be showing up and you know, like, just talking about the thing that you’re passionate about, right, like, and that’s going to be your main focus. Because when we can focus on that piece, when we can find a strategy that feels so good and so good to our souls, to ourselves, to our values, that’s when, right, like, the success just comes. Like, people are attracted to that Like. That I mean, that is attraction marketing 101. Like when you can sell, when you can offer your services, from that level it just success comes. It’s just inevitable. And it’s not always on the timeframe that we want. It doesn’t always happen as quickly as we want, but that’s with any system, that’s with any strategy, right.
And so I’m really excited about this new Enneagram Coaching Offer because we are going to dive deep, specifically into what are going to be the things that are going to work for you and I’m going to work with you one to one, to figure out and map out what does this look like? What does an amazing business feel like to you? What are these core motivators and core desires and core fears that you have? What are the things that you value the most and how can we incorporate those values into your strategy? So I absolutely cannot wait. There will be more information coming soon about that.
I, on a little other side update, I am going through a complete new rebrand. My website is having a complete overhaul which I’m so excited to share once that goes live. But there will be more information about this Enneagram Coaching Offer on the new website once that launches. So keep an eye out and near out for that. I will share more details. If, in the meantime, it’s piqued your interest and you’re interested in learning more, send me a DM. We can chat about it just to see if this would be something that might be a good fit for you. But otherwise there will be more information coming soon about that.
And then the last thing that I wanted to just kind of give you a little update on or I guess maybe like gauge your interest and ask some questions around is, as I am diving back into the podcast, I’m curious to know if any of Graham’s specific podcast episodes would be of interest to you. I will always bring it back to growing a business, right? Like that’s what this podcast is about. It’s a little bit of self growth, it’s a little bit of personal development. It’s a little bit of business building. It’s a little bit of strategy, right, we’re kind of all of the things because building a business is not as separated it’s not separated at all from personal growth, right? Like we have to grow as people and when we grow as people, our businesses grow and evolve. So the theme will always be tied to that.
But I’m curious if you, if anyone listening in, if you’re like I actually am really interested in the Enneagram and I’d be curious to hear about how we can utilize that more in our businesses, how we can think about that. I would love for you to just send me a DM and let me know. You can find me on Instagram at HeyChristinMarie. Just send me a quick message, just be like hey, I listened to your latest episode. I would love to hear more Enneagram content. Or just send me a little DM, be like hey, any Grim content, yes, please on the podcast. Just let me know if that would be of interest to you and that is something that I will be sure to include inside of our episodes each week. So, anyway, all of that to say these are my updates.
I’m so excited to be back. There are some, like I said, really amazing podcast episodes that are going to be coming your way, but in the meantime, I just thank you again so much for listening. I have been checking my stats and I’m seeing that you I’ve still had listeners. I still see you listening, even during my break, so I appreciate you hanging in and re-listening to old episodes there’s more than 100 of them at this point, so you can always go back and listen in if there’s any that you want to re-listen to.
But, like I said, I’m just so happy to be here, I’m so happy to be back, I’m so grateful to be able to share this space with you and to be able to offer this value in really just easy to digest format.
So thank you so much for listening. I would love for you to send me a DM on Instagram, even if it’s not about any of the things that I talked about earlier, but even just to say hello. Let me know that you listened in. I would absolutely love to be able to get to know you a little bit more, and I look forward to seeing you again in the next episode. One last thing before you go I’d absolutely love it if you left a review on Apple Podcasts, or, if you’ve already left a review, I’d love for you to share this episode with your business bestie.
