167: How I went from $200 a month to $60,000 a month with Olivia Marie
Welcome to this mini podcast series, part 1 of 5.
In the next 5 episodes I'll be joined by 5 of my past BABA clients who are seriously rocking their business and showing us what's possible with not hustling and burning themselves out. They will be sharing their chicken nuggets, their wins and the things they've learnt about growing their business.
This episode I'm joined by the beautiful Liv Marie, past BABA client, current Feminine As F*ck Coaching Certification student and a natural health and eating expert. After spending four years pursuing a degree in naturopathic medicine, Liv has figured out how to help people live healthy lives and feel their best. Liv's personal philosophy (and within her business 'Keep Up With Liv') is that every time you eat you have the opportunity to nourish your body.
Brace yourself, because this is one intelligent, powerful, magical women (and also a Sag so, vibes). Side note - she is seriously KILLING it in her biz and is set to break a USD$60k ceiling this month, so go Liv.
So Liv, do you want to quickly introduce yourself and tell us about your business?
My name is Liv! I have a channel called Keep Up With Liv (YouTube, Instagram, Podcast). I help women heal their bodies, not only with the right nutrients and physically, but also in a way that heals all the emotional stuff that they've never dealt with, that's always been hiding in their bodies and not feel delicious.
Do you want to share with us what you've learnt in your business over the last year and a half?
The biggest thing (and I wish I'd learnt this sooner) is that it's not about how much work you do. I remember grinding on the hamster wheel, 16 hours a day, making like peanuts in my business, hustling hard, thinking the reason why I wasn't making money was because I had to work harder. That was absolutely NOT true! I mean yeah, you have to take aligned action, don't get me wrong, but it's a lot less to do with how much you work and more about the energy with which you're working. You can work a lot less, and make a lot more. So now, I work 5-6 hours a day and make 10x more than I did.
Another key thing is, you can't keep doing the same thing and expect different results. I kept thinking, I'll keep doing it, I'll keep doing it... and one day it's going to work. Well no, I was doing the wrong thing. I'm pretty sure that's the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
My third key thing is, I kept expecting free things to give me mind-blowing results. I think it was actually one of your podcast episodes 'stop expecting free shit' and it was SO TRUE. If you want massive results, you have to massively invest. And I felt like, the return I got is directly reflected to how much I've invested in myself. I've invested multiple 5 figures in myself at this point, which has made me over 6 figures in return.
What do you feel like was a game changer for you?
If it doesn't feel expansive then you shouldn't be doing it. If it's coming from a scare energy (pricing, launching) it's never going to work. It has to feel good.
What would you tell someone that is in the start of their business?
You need to surround yourself with people who are higher than you. You have to surround yourself with people who are going to expand you. If you have friends that are going to be like 'that's not going to work' or their dreams aren't that high, that energy is going to leach onto you.
What is something that you've learnt from me that was a juicy juicy chicken nugget?
I always thought that launching had to be exhausting, I thought my business had to be exhausting! Like, I'm so burnt out, I'm so busy, that means I'm successful... er no, I'm not available for that!
Tell us about your business Liv!
I help people emotionally and physically. It's not just about the supplements and perfect diet. It's about what are the emotional blockages that you are storing in your body that are now making you bloated, throwing your hormones off, making you uncomfortable and not love yourself.
What was your illusion of me, before you started working with me?
I always thought you were amazing. I think you're the perfect balance of your fiery and blunt when I need you. You call me out on my shit, and that's what I need. The blunt is always coming from love.
Make sure you check out Liv:
When you take aligned action, when you put the effort in, when you want something badly enough and you show the fuck up for yourself to do it, you will get amazing results.
It is possible for you. I always looked at people like 'oh they're just lucky, it's not possible for me'. But I am the prime example that it is possible for you. I remember when I was making $200 a month in my business. Now I've crossed a quarter of a million dollars in 6 months.
