61: How to Not Let the Holidays Derail You from Your Annual Vision
In this episode of the Bombshell Business Podcast Amber Hurdle interviews Bombshell Business Expert and Life Coach, Jaime Gordon, about how to not let the holidays derail you from your annual vision. Her steps include: Have a vision….apply it to the holiday season​. If you don’t have a vision, hammer one out. Stop making stuff up: we make up rules that aren’t there.​ Who says you have to go to everything you are invited to? Who says you need a new outfit for holiday parties? Who says you need to give gifts/expensive gifts to people? Who says you have to send out a holiday card? Lights on your house? Be willing to give some things up in order for your vision to come to fruition:​ Be willing to skip parties, or skip on foods not on the diet...or be willing to let some stuff slide to stay connected with the important things (like leaving the blinds undusted). Be ok to say “no” to some good stuff so you can say “yes” to the great stuff. Ask yourself what resources can you tap into What requests can you make? (Get creative​!) Can you teach your kids to do their own laundry? Can you shop online? Can you get a cleaning service to help you out? Can you postpone the business trip until January? Can you use gift bags versus wrapping presents? Offer yourself in the way you want to experience others. Consider intentionally being gracious, curious, intimate, loving, forgiving or whatever is the priority for you.   With these tips you can keep your holidays festive, meaningful, MUCH less stressful...and importantly in alignment with your vision for this year!

41: How To Promote Yourself to the Media Part 3
In this episode of the Bombshell Business Podcast Amber Hurdle talks about how to handle both success and rejection throughout the execution of your media plan. This episode builds on Part 1, which taught you how to lay a foundation for a successful media relations effort, and Part 2, which taught you how to make it easy for the media to cover you. Build on Your Successes   -Use one media appearance to get another to showcase your media presence, topics that you are able to speak to, and   -Work to create a variety of coverage through visual, print, audio, video, new media and traditional media, etc...   -Use one testimonial to get another. Reviews of your product or service can serve as an additional tool to build your credibility for your potential customers and to the media. How to Deal with Rejection Grow thicker skin! You have no idea what is going on behind the scenes of any given media outlet. It can be a variety of things to include:   -It’s the wrong timing -It’s the wrong audience -It’s the wrong market -You’re not a celebrity and they only cover celebrities   Remember, “no”s are free. (My favorite Lindsay-ism!) Don’t get your feelings hurt. Move on to the next outlet and build, build, build from there.   Stay Humble and Hungry You are never going to be so important that you can come in with an attitude. Keep your humble britches on. The end.   On Hiring a Publicist   It is not a magic bullet. Do your homework and hire the right fit for you, your industry and your audience. Be totally clear on your goals and plan so you can communicate that to your publicist and measure their effectiveness. (Go back and listen to Episode 39 to be sure this is done!)   Publicists highly likely have media relationships you may not have, so they can pitch to someone who knows whoever they are pitching is a sure thing--and it has nothing to do with you at all!   Hiring a publicist is an expense that won’t necessarily give you an immediate return, but is a long term investment in your goals.   Plan, Plan, PLAN!   Keep things in perspective for the long term impact media coverage will have on your business. The Bombshell Business Woman has an entire chapter (13) on how to create a Red Lipstick Marketing Plan, and chapter 14 is all about Networking Like a Lady Boss.

Why Did I Create the Bombshell Business App? Through listener surveys and one-to-one conversation with listeners I discovered that Bombshells listen to me on their phones, on the go, and rarely found the time to visit my website to leverage links or downloads in the show notes. So I knew I needed to make everything conveniently located on your phone, just a tap or two away from the episode you were already listening to.   So the purpose of this app is to provide a convenient way for women in business to learn and connect on the go, and to strengthen the Bombshell community.   What are the Features of the Bombshell Business App? *The Bombshell Business Podcast with show notes featuring all of the links and mentioned resources from each episode *The blog, full of posts by me and the #BBexperts, who give specific advice in their areas of expertise *Our YouTube channel, which we are ramping up in the coming months *A chat wall so you can post questions for the #BBexperts (and me) *and* to connect with each other *Worksheets and free downloads (that you don’t have to enter your email to get every time-wuh?!) *An events calendar featuring in-person and virtual events *All of my social media channels *Online courses (we’ll still use Teachable, but you can access it from the app) *Private groups *A news ticker so you always know what is most important in the Bombshell World *Push notifications: For example, if Twitter has a massive password breach again, I can push out a message to you to change your password ASAP! *A tab just for the Bombshell Business Experts so you can learn about what they do and reach out if they can be of service to you!
