Recognizing Your Genius With Lanie Lamarre

This week on Creatives Crushing Anxiety, I chat with my friend, spirit animal and fellow organization badass Laine Lamarre. Laine is the founder and operator of Miss #GSD. She helps overwhelmed service-based bosses like you automate, streamline, organize + account for all the things that are stressing you out so you can get back to doing the work you got into business to do in the first place! I might be biased but this episode is great. Laine and I get real about discovering what you have to offer the world, getting focused and so much more.

In this episode:

  • Why you need to look internally instead of externally to find your business model.
  • Why an online course or program may not be the answer.
  • Here workaround for avoiding shiny object syndrome in this supersaturated course market.
  • Why we need to stop doing work that drags you down.
  • Why you need to organize the way it happens.
  • How Laine plans her goals.
  • Why it’s so important for service-based business owners to take care of themselves.
  • The way to track new ideas without letting them take over your game plan.
  • What she wants us to realize about self-care in 2018.
  • The best thing she thinks service based business bosses can do for themselves.

    I love this quote : Money isn’t your only resource… I think we should also invest on people. Give them trainings so that they can be useful in the future.

  • Rachel Stone

    This is great – we all need to learn to focus on the things we can do and the things we have. Love all these quotes!

  • I say gif with a G sound definitely. Though for ages I thought meme was said me-me haha.
    Focus on the things that aren’t missing. Focus on what you’ve committed to doing and you will get so much further. – I love this quote, it is going to be my motto for the week! 🙂

    I just had this conversation with someone and that is something I think all businesses should do. If you’re a one person operation or a 1000 person company, you need to invest in education and learning.

  • Dia

    It’s so easy. I’m a detail oriented person, so I have to remind myself a lot of times you need to put down the books and take action to learn.
