Let’s get into it!
>> [0:33] Welcome to this episode of the Mums With Hustle Podcast which is proudly, proudly, proudly, brought to you by my online learning academy, the Social Method Society. The Social Method Society is designed for female entrepreneurs growing heart centered, impact driven businesses using Instagram. And I’m honestly so excited to let you know that you have your chance to get inside the Society because doors are opening this week! You can join on Tuesday, November 19th at socialmethodsociety.com.
>> [2:06] What better way to celebrate the doors to the Society being opened than to introduce you to one of my Social Method Society Members who has been kicking some serious ass and growing her business like crazy (without going crazy!).

About Janine and Her Business
>> [3:48] Janine is a trained Visual Art Teacher and she loves art education and how much joy it brings children. Specifically, that love of creating something that is exclusively theirs.
>> [8:14] Because she started her business 15 years ago, the early years were challenging and exciting in many ways. The hardest part for Janine was telling others what she wanted to do. In her heart, she always knew it would work and she had what it takes, it was just harder to convince others.
>> [10:58] Janine was passionate about making all of her own choices. And she was blissfully happy being the mum I wanted to be, working the business around the needs of her children.
>> [12:10] To Janine the vision was so clear and exhilarating, that she didn’t mind waking up getting up early. Her mindset was to get the work done, be happy, and sleep later. She took full responsibility for the vision!
>> [13:20] You need to know yourself and your energy levels. You do not need to burn the candle at both ends. Finding balance is absolutely crucial!
Janine’s Experiences Growing Her Business
>> [14:17] Janine has two completely different experiences when it comes to learning about how to grow her business. There is an excitement that surrounds how to move your business forward.
>> [16:11] When it comes to Instagram, Janine first felt like a fish out of water. She had to get clear on how to use Instagram to grow her business. Janine joined the Social Method Society and went right back to Stage 1. She had to look at what does her business look like online!
>> [18:58] Janine’s children have always been supportive of her business.
>> [23:00] Janine is very open about being a life-long learner! Janine knew that if she joined on a monthly subscription and she didn’t look at the Member’s portal for a couple of months, she would be cross at herself and end up cancelling. By gifting herself a year, she knew it would take the pressure off and she could go into the portal whenever she could, which she does now.
>> [28:00] I want to celebrate a massive goal that Janine achieved because when I first heard this my jaw was on the floor. Her goal was to open her 4th studio by the end of this year, and she did it! That’s HUGE!
What has helped Janine make this goal possible?
- Janine had a change of mindset!
- She feels so motivated and excited to move forward.
- There is a firm clarity around knowing what Janine wants and there is no resistance around it.
- Plus, Janine is ready to receive it.
>> [33:33] Celebrating little wins is extremely important. Especially, when it comes to celebrating as a family.
>> [34:48] When it comes to starting your business, Janine has a ton of tips to help you get in the right mindset.
What are Janine's Top Tips For Women Starting In Business?
- Look for people who can help you and guide you.
- Do your research.
- Keep asking yourself, “How can I be better at what I’m doing?”
- If it’s not controllable by you, don’t worry about it.
>> [37:08] Instagram introduces a whole new mindset when it comes to visibility and fear.
