The Incredible (And Very Real) Journey of Entrepreneurship

Do you feel like you are juggling more than you can handle in your current career(s)? Do you wish you could pivot in your business but you aren’t sure how? Is your body or mind telling you something needs to change to reach that next level of success, but you aren’t sure what? If so, then today’s episode is for you! In this episode of the IHML Show, we are chatting with Amanda Bond, the owner of The Ad Strategist and a HubSpot Academy instructor. Labeled a “Facebook advertising genius” by Entrepreneur Magazine, Amanda simplifies the complexities of paid social media traffic with her vast analytical experience. Tune in to today’s episode to find out how she mixes education and entertainment in a straight-shooting way to show people about the right way to do Facebook advertising. Hint, it’s all about creating a strategy!

During this episode, you’ll learn how Amanda’s success has been a culmination of decades of trial and error (and failures), why she thinks you’re on the right track and how it’s important to listen to the cues from the Universe, and how every desired outcome is possible by reverse engineering its achievement.

During this episode we’re going to cover…

  • How her extensive career experience from a corporate job to being a master barbequer shaped her entrepreneurial journey  
  • Why giving yourself permission and the time to figure things out is key in your career
  • Why listening to how your body is responding to the choices you’re making in your business is vital to your success
  • How booking a one way trip to Bali changed her life
  • How the consistent inputs you make in your business ultimately control your success
  • What speaking your dreams into reality looks like and how it works

One of my favorite quotes from this episode is this:

“It just goes to show that no matter where you are in business, that you’re allowed to change, you’re allowed to pivot.  In fact one of the big lessons that I like to share with people is in these moments your pivot is more towards… the ROI. Like, we could keep going with an agency, we could keep going in our current business model. You could keep going in anything that you’re doing. But the pivot is just like a recalibration towards the future ROI and those things are allowed right? Like, sure we’re entrepreneurs and sure we’re building assets. We’re building businesses that can run without us. But we’re still humans in this experience as well and it’s okay to change it. It’s okay to evolve.” – Amanda Bond
