This project started off as a fun idea about how many snarky one-liners we could fit into a clip episode and morphed into something incredible. Listening back to all these incredible guests, it was damn near impossible to choose who made the cut. But now that we’re here I couldn’t be more pleased – this is some serious business wisdom that’s as close to downloading a book directly to your brain as you could get. If you love listening to podcasts on 2x so you can listen to EVEN MORE podcasts, this episode will be right up your alley. 20 guests in roughly 90 minutes… and GO!
Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:
- Sprinting right out of the gate with a rant about “mompreneur,” “boss babe,” and the other things we call ourselves that sneakily rob us of our power and positioning…
- For the love of cheese and crackers, celebrate how far you’ve come! Here’s why I hate the idea of “paying dues” and “starting over” (and how you can turn a bunch of disconnected jack-of-all-trades projects into a compelling, cohesive skillset that attracts clients like a magnet)…
- Spoiler alert: nobody’s going to advocate for your business more than you, so now is the time to get comfortable with selling (I like to think of it as learning to become your own best cheerleader/bragger-in-chief, but without the clapping or the “ick”)…
- The rules are made up and the points don’t matter: why even when you cross the “finish line” and cross something off your to-do list, the learning (and imposter syndrome) never really goes away…
- Reframing your relationship with “problems”: how to see your particular struggles and challenges as a WIN, and keep moving forward…
Hi, I’m Angie Colee. Nice to virtually meet you! I’m a business coach and communications expert… and your personal hype woman.
I help info marketers, thought leaders, creative freelancers, and corporate teams to –
- Build solid relationships and networks to grow their businesses and influence
- Create systems and structure that allow you to buy back your time and work ON the business instead of being stuck IN it
- Unpack (and set fire to) the feelings and struggles that keep us from showing up and communicating as our best selves
And so much more!
Over the last decade-plus, I’ve led, coached, and developed creative teams for some brands you would definitely recognize. I’ve also helped launch thousands of products and marketing campaigns, including two multimillion-dollar launches in the middle of a global pandemic. Combined, my work has generated more than $70 million in direct-to-consumer sales.
My passion project is this show, Permission to Kick Ass. It’s a podcast (and movement) for freelancers and creative entrepreneurs who want to start (or grow) businesses that are perfect for their personalities and their lifestyles. It’s the show I wish I’d had when I was first starting out – maybe then I wouldn’t have convinced myself I was screwing everything up and stalled my own progress for years.
When I’m not helping entrepreneurs build their empires, you’ll find me on the road. I’m a full-time digital nomad and I host marketing workshops and entrepreneurial playdates business-building events in different locations all around the U.S.
You can count on me to locate the really good food, find landmarks and local hotspots, and try all kinds of weird things like llama yoga and digging in the dirt with backhoes.
