When we’re caught up in the hustle and bustle of running our businesses, it’s easy to lose sight of the impact we’re making on our clients. However, sometimes even the smallest service we provide can make all the difference in someone else’s life.

As business owners, we have the potential to transform our clients’ lives, from how they get things done, to how they feel about themselves. Wouldn’t it be great to tap into that power and use it for good?

How can we channel our energies into creating something that truly makes a difference in our clients’ lives, so they can shine a little brighter in their own world and pay it forward?

In this episode, Co-CEO and Master Cosmetologist at Transformations Beauty Studio, Derricka Traylor shares how she’s built a hair salon that goes beyond offering a service. 

 

Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

  • How to use our businesses to create safe spaces for women:

    Creating an environment where women can share their stories, catch up with friends and truly unwind does more good than we sometimes realize. Make a point of building genuine relationships with clients so they feel comfortable in the space. 

  • The key to connecting with clients on a deeper level:

    It’s one thing to listen to clients when they’re talking, it’s another to remember small details and check in with them a couple weeks down the line. Get invested in their lives and show them their stories are worthy of attention and love. 

  • How to unwind in times of trauma:

    We all go through difficult periods, and the key to surviving them lies in relaxing activities. This could be reading, catching up with a friend, or even going to the salon, but the most important thing is to find what works for us.

 

Guest Bio- 

A woman with exceptional strength, especially one who successfully manages a home, brings up children, and has a full-time job is identified as Superwoman. Derricka Traylor is Superwoman without a cape. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA Derricka is the Co-CEO and Master Cosmetologist at Transformations Beauty Studio. Not only does she run a successful salon with her twin sister Erricka Traylor, but she is also a proud mom to two amazing boys and a wife of eight years. 

From a young age, Derricka has had a passion for the beauty industry. She was introduced to cosmetology as a child, washing hair in her grandfather's salon. In 2010 she pursued her dreams of becoming a Master Cosmetologist and obtained her license. However, in 2015, her life took a turn for the worse. Derricka, her husband at the time, and young son experienced a home invasion, leaving her husband learning to walk again and leaving their family to rebuild from nothing. Being left with trauma and much confusion, Derricka began to lose herself. From that day forward she realized how important it was to have multiple streams of income and a place women could let go, rebuild, and transform from traumatic moments in their life.  

When she’s not doing the hair of your favorite celebrities, she’s reading, traveling, and spending time with her friends and family. Being big on family and generational wealth, Derricka is seeking to have multiple rental properties to pass down to her kids. Pushing her philanthropy effort, she plans on developing an organization to empower and encourage people. As she continues to grow in her career, she plans to expand TBS with her sister and open a beauty school.

Having strong relationships with our children is something all mothers aspire to, but in the case of girl moms, it may be even more important than we realize. That’s because when raising daughters, we have an opportunity to empower the future generation of women.

As Boss Moms, many of us are motivated by the thought of using our businesses to uplift other women, but sometimes shifting our focus to creating a strong foundation for our own daughters can make an even bigger impact. 

That being said, girl moms often struggle to draw the line between creating ‘mini-me’s’ and allowing our daughters to become the best versions of themselves

How do we find the balance between guiding them to great things and giving them the space to decide who they are? How do we become parents to daughters who thrive in their own right?

Is it possible to do all that when we’re dealing with baggage of our own? 

In this episode, host of the Mother Daughter Connections Podcast, Dr. Michelle Deering shares how to build stronger, more empowering relationships with our daughters. 

 

Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

  • The key to healthier communication with our children:

    Understanding is vital for real conversations with our kids. When disagreements arise, we have to be mindful of where they’re at and what they’re going through, and then tailor our responses to that.

  • Why moving forward requires reflection:

    We can’t fix anything without facing it first. By taking a deep look into what’s going on in our own lives, we’ll be able to better understand why certain words, actions, and behaviors trigger us

  • How to unearth our personal issues when we aren’t aware of them:

    Self-reflection is often easier said than done, and more so when we aren’t aware of what’s holding us back. Sometimes it’s helpful to have someone else point those things out to us, whether that person be a friend, family member, or a therapist.

Running a business while being a mom isn’t always easy, and the events of last year only added to the challenges. However, there is something to be grateful for every day, and sometimes we just need a shift in perspective to see it.

Finding the ray of sunshine in any situation isn’t always easy, but it’s possible if we’re willing to look past the obstacles we’re faced with. 

How can we find joy each day, no matter what life throws our way? What can we do to remind ourselves that we are enough as we are, and channel that energy into everything we do?

In this episode, host of The Small Victories Podcast and founder of One Leg Up Productions, Pauline Victoria shares how she finds happiness each day as a woman born without limbs. 

 

3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

  • How to stop letting hard times get us down: 
    Most entrepreneurs can relate to super high highs and devastating low lows. While no one wants to hit a low point, it’s important to remember that the most growth comes from the hard times.

  • Why we need to stop trying to do it all on our own: 
    Over the past couple of years, it’s become a badge of honor to say we do everything on our own… but the truth is no one enjoys doing everything, and no one is good at juggling it all. Have the right people on hand and know when to ask for help. 

  • How to overcome rejection: 
    The two things that keep us from going after our dreams are judgment and feelings of unworthiness. Combat the first by remembering that people’s reactions to our products, businesses, and even ourselves are a reflection of them, not us.

We all want to have great businesses that make money, solve problems, and help people to get results. 

As e-learning continues to boom, it’s become more critical to have tools that allow people to learn on their mobile devices. More and more people want to learn on-the-go and in podcast format. 

The more spaces we can create that make education easy, the more we can cut through the challenges of getting people to use and implement our content. 

My guest today is a Boss Mom who built an audio platform that allows course creators to turn their content into private podcasts. How does the platform work, and how can it help people get better results from our courses? 

In this episode, entrepreneur and founder of Hiro.fm, Carla White shares the power of learning through listening, and why the future of e-learning is on our phones. 

 

3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

  • Why e-learning still has so much opportunity and room to grow:

    E-learning is a multi-billion dollar industry, but it hasn’t really changed much since its inception. Much of e-learning is still tethered to computers, which makes it hard for us to learn on-the-go. Hiro.fm allows course creators to upload their content in podcast form, allowing people to listen and learn on-the-move.  

  • How to meet the demand of today’s e-learning students:

    People want relevant, on-demand content that solves specific problems. They want targeted educational information that is dispensed through a channel that makes internalizing and implementing it easier. 

  • How to publish content that matches how we learn:

    There are 3 levels of education, listening, learning, and implementation. When e-learning is tethered to a computer, a lot of people are only able to listen, they don’t have the time or the space to implement it. The people who find the most success in our programs are the ones who can actively listen to things over and over. If we can allow people to learn on-the-go, while they’re making dinner, driving their kids around, or working out, we can give them more space to internalize and implement.
