That Time I Was Interviewed By Carrie Green
Carrie Green, from Female Entrepreneur Association has been my business crush since 2014.
Back then I was freelancing for digital marketing agencies, writing website copy and SEO’d blog posts. I had no control over the clients I worked for, and I was working every available hour while my children were at school, and still only scraping around £600 per month.
Somehow I came across Carrie and her promise that I could build the business of my dreams for just $25 a month if I joined the Female Entrepreneur Association. I was hooked. I had so little money to invest in myself, and no dreams for the future. Her Members Club was just what I needed, and it’s been hugely helpful in showing me what’s possible and how to get there.
Last May, I was on the family holiday I had dreamed about for years - a trip to Orlando. The Sons were sleeping in, and I was checking in on my emails. I saw applications were open to be on Carrie’s podcast, but submissions needed to be made via video.
I have no idea if it was the heat, the post-rollercoaster adrenaline from the day before, or the extraordinary amount of caffeine and sugar I had consumed while on our trip, but I picked up the phone, hit record, and gave my best pitch, right there on the patio of our villa, still wearing my PJs.
And I’m so glad I did - because I was picked to be featured on the podcast.
You can hear the interview in full below.
The podcast was promoted with the title ‘Celebrating The Gold Medal Moments’ - because this is something I have to remind myself to do. Otherwise, as soon as I’ve hit one goal, I’ve set the next one, and I’m already pushing myself to achieve more, more, more, without first acknowledging what I’ve achieved - and that is not a recipe for glowing mental health.
At some point in the interview Carrie suggested she’d like me to do a masterclass for her membership. I was not going to pass up that opportunity, and I followed-up and chased-down until I made it onto the list of experts for 2020 - and then 2020 didn’t exactly go to plan, but that’s a story for another blog post.
Enjoy the podcast, and if you’ve got a spare 5 minutes, maybe you can list a few ‘gold medal moments’ you’ve got coming up, or enjoyed recently that are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.
