Episode 58 – Michelle Van Otten on Love-Based Money with Michele PW

Episode 58 – Michelle Van Otten on Love-Based Money with Michele PW

Take Your Business (and Your Life) to the Next Level. In this episode, Michele interviews Michelle Van Otten, Chief Marketing Officer and CEO of Omnikal—the nation’s largest inclusive business organization that allows members to network and make high-level connections with other business owners and entrepreneurs. Michelle talks about the incredible power of the mind when it comes to the decisions we make in our lives, and how mindset can be a catalyst for transformation. Michelle experienced this firsthand when she changed her own mindset about herself and her place in the world, and here, she describes her own breakthrough that led her straight to the top.

In this episode, you learn:

  • How to break through mindset blocks that hold you back.
  • How to affect change in the brain, which can make all the difference in your success.
  • How to take the “money map” we all have in our brains and reprogram it, so we can make more.
  • The patterns you are (most likely) repeating that are not allowing you to get ahead in your business (and how to break them).
  • And so much more.

Michelle talks about the radical shift she made in her life that drove her toward the success she has today. When she battled her own blocks (she would self-sabotage by constantly doubting and listening to her negative internal voice), she developed an interest in the connection between neuroscience and marketing, and earned a Master-level certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) in 2004. This allowed her to gain a deep understanding of the conscious and subconscious mind (and how they work together).

Love-Based Goals are whispers from your soul, gently nudging you to transform into the highest level of YOU. Michele PW flies solo to celebrate the newest book in the Love-Based Business series, “Love-Based Goals: Your Guide to Living Your Purpose and Passion.”

You may be wondering how a copywriting expert came to write a book on goals. Well, on this episode, she shares the story.

* What the love-based philosophy is, how she got the download, and how it relates to more than just copywriting.

* How teaching herself to read at age three was the catalyst to her creating the love-based goals philosophy.

* What needed to happen to make the entire love-based goals movement come together. (Plus, how she discovered that EVERYTHING in our lives is built either on a foundation of love or fear and why that’s important if you want to evolve as a person.)

* And more.

She also shares what the love-based goals philosophy is (you can also read more about it here). In a nutshell, Michele believes love-based goals are whispers from your soul, calling you to become a higher version of yourself. The only way those goals will come true is if you become the person your soul is calling you to be.

In addition, she shares a few tips on how you can know if the goals you’re struggling with are love-based or not, and some things to try to make all your goals come true.

She is a small business lawyer who works with entrepreneurs to grow their businesses while feeling less stressed and overwhelmed.

Episode 50 – Special Edition: Is Podcasting the Right Love-Based Marketing Strategy for You?

Episode 50 – Special Edition: Is Podcasting the Right Love-Based Marketing Strategy for You?

Michele flies solo in this episode where she shares some of the top lessons she learned at the New Media Summit, an event in San Diego that covered all things podcasting.

But, first, why is she talking about podcasting on Love-Based Money?

Well, because podcasting is a marketing tactic, which means it pushes all kinds of buttons, including a fear of visibility, fear of success, fear of failure, etc.

And, all of those fears are closely tied to our money stories. If we have a fear around success or being visible, that’s going to hamper our ability to make money, and if we struggle with making money, that will likely continue to feed our fear-based money stories.

The more we can face and move through ALL our fears, the easier it will be to transform our relationship with money.

So, why podcasting? Podcasting is actually super hot right now and still growing. It may very well be the marketing tactic of the future (and unlike videos and livestreams, doesn’t require any showers or makeup).

BUT it has to be the right tactic for you.

Here in love-based online marketing land, making sure you’re aligned with a marketing tactic is just as important as what marketing tactic you choose. Marketing is difficult enough. If you’re choosing to do something you don’t enjoy, you’re just making it that much more difficult for yourself.

In addition, on this episode, Michele covers:

  • Why podcasting is trending and why you might want to consider starting your own podcast
  • Tips on how to best create the right podcast for you
  • Why it’s important to be in alignment with your marketing
  • And more.
