Episode 085 – The 4 Questions To Ask When Marketing Your Business – with Shannon Cox

Show Notes:

“Plan, do, and measure.” Learn four strategic questions you need to ask when planning the most successful marketing for your business.

Shannon is both entrepreneur and educator (Professor, actually) in the marketing and management field. She works with business leaders to help them zero in on their customers and to increase sales by developing marketing communication strategies that work.

She has a wide range of experience having worked with law firms and cement plants to nonprofits and even federal government managers. Like many of us, Shannon has juggled a career around raising kids – and though her career path emulates a moth in a porch light rather than ascending corporate rungs, she brings a lot of curiosity and competence to her consulting work at Incisive Marketing and post-secondary teaching.

Episode 081 – Have a Why or Get Burnt Out Fast – with Ruthie Burd of The Lunch Lady

Ruthie Burd the Lunch Lady franchising canada

Show Notes:

I wanted to kick off Season 5 of the Elaine’s Kitchen Table Podcast with a bang – so I interviewed one of my Mompreneur heroes and mentors – Ruthie Burd, founder of The Lunch Lady!

This interview is chock full of amazing advice and wisdom from Ruthie, who has “been there and done that”, as she is coming up on the 25th anniversary of her business!

In this episode, learn:

  • How Ruthie’s family situation prompted her to start her own business
  • Why it is better to be respected and fair than liked, if you want to make a difference
  • Why successful fast growth can be as big a challenge as stagnant non-growth
  • How we are all “pebbles in other people’s ponds”
  • When is (and is not) the time to franchise your business (I always say, listen to people who have done something successfully!)
  • Why you need a “Why” to sustain you in the marathon of business success!

Ruthie’s go-to resource: Ask questions of others! There is no hyper-link for this resource, she simply recommends talking to others to find out how they do things (a great reason to join with our show sponsor, Mompreneurs Canada)

Episode 079 – Find Your Fabulous with Lisa Dadd

Lisa Dadd Interview

Show Notes:

“Embrace that things do not have to be perfect. Shift from wanting “easy” to wanting “worth it”. You must want bigger than the paycheck.” —- So many golden nuggets from my guest, Lisa Dadd, today!

After walking away from a successful career at a Fortune 100 company to find more meaning, purpose, and fun, Lisa Dadd transformed more than her day job. Her decision to invest in what she was meant to be in life, rather than settle for what she was doing for a living, inspired her to write her first book, Finding Fabulous: Paving the Path Between Paycheck and Passion. In it, she dares us to consider what our most fabulous life looks like and provides practical, relevant tools for anyone tired of feeling stuck and ready to take action!
