LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST EPISODE:


I am so excited to introduce you to this week’s guest, Jena Rodriguez. Jena is a Business, Brave & Visibility Strategist, Speaker, and founder of Brave Masters, Inc. who’s committed to accelerating your visibility, catapulting profits and unleashing the full human potential of entrepreneurs internationally. Jena teaches coaches and consultants how to capitalize on their “natural” abilities, and package and price their greatest strengths so that they can create a money-making, world-changing movement.

Over the last decade as an entrepreneur, Jena’s learned that the ONE thing needed to reach our fullest potential in life and in business is being BRAVE. This is about saying YES without evidence, moving through fear, and being uncomfortable yet doing it anyways! By getting her BRAVE on, Jena was able to move from charging $89/hour to generating over $1.3 million in revenue over the last four and a half years.

Entrepreneurship isn’t the easy way, it’s the brave way.
— Jena Rodriguez

Jena’s entrepreneurial journey began during her 20s and 30s as she climbed the ranks of corporate America before realizing that she had reached her cap. As a true leader, she wanted to implement her own vision instead of continuing to work for others. During our interview she shares her experience of quitting her corporate job, purchasing a local women’s boutique, celebrating $300k in sales while drowning in $700k of debt, and how that was ultimately a blessing in disguise.

Tune in to this week’s episode to hear all about…

  • How Jena’s desire for freedom of location, time, and money influenced her decision to file for bankruptcy

  • The importance of focusing on expansion instead of limitation

  • When it’s time to pivot, change, or grow in your life and business

  • Jena’s daily self-care routine and the power of quiet morning reflection

  • Why you should be measuring INPUT vs. IMPACT when evaluating worthwhile opportunities.

After you listen, take a screenshot of the podcast + tag me (@Cailen_Ascher) and Jena (@jenarodriguez) on Instagram, and let us know your favorite takeaways from the episode!

How to Find Your Tribe

 
The 3-Day Workweek Podcast with Cailen Ascher - 2019-04-17 - How to Find Your Tribe.jpg
 
 

LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST EPISODE:


Something that is becoming all the more obvious to me as I continue to expand my business and reach for bigger and bigger milestones is the unbelievable importance of finding your tribe.

I have to admit, I’m blessed with a husband who supports me unconditionally, parents who always told me that I could be or do anything I put my mind to and a sister who is also entrepreneurial. I rested on my family as my single source of support for a long time. Too long.

It was unfair to them to assume that I could get all the advice, support, guidance, pep talks and love I needed to scale my business to the level I envisioned.

A few years ago, I started to get a nudge that I needed to connect with more women who were doing what I was doing -- who would understand the ups and downs. Since planting that seed, my network (and business!) has grown in unimaginable ways.

I’ve met top authors, speakers, podcasters and coaches. I’ve connected and worked with 7-figure business owners, high-level coaches and top consultants. And, I’ve had beautiful opportunities like speaking gigs, free tickets to events, new clients, complimentary coaching, mentorship and important intros handed to me all because I put intention behind finding my tribe.

Finding your tribe isn’t the only thing you need to do to build a successful business, but it’s a vital and necessary step...especially when you’re ready to uplevel from a solopreneur to an abundant business owner and scale your impact and income to new heights.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that you’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So if those 5 people include your kids, dog and Facebook “friends” (and you’re wondering why your energy and time feel maxed out and your income has stalled), it may be as simple as surrounding yourself with some new, fresh, high-level, replenishing energy!

Here are my top tips for finding your tribe…

  1. Stop waiting! Stop putting this on the back burner or thinking you’ll start connecting with high-level women when you have the time or when you’re “more successful”. Stop waiting for permission and just do it.

  2. Get in the habit of reaching out. If introducing yourself online or in-person feels awkward (especially to someone you admire), I totally get it. I used to feel the same way and cringe when someone would ask “what do you do?”. But, outreach is a muscle and the more you use it the stronger and more adept it will become.

  3. Go out and find it -- or create it! Don’t wait for your sisterhood, biz best friends or soul tribe to find you. It’s your job to find them! Or, if you can’t find them, create a space where you can all connect like a monthly coffee meet-up or Facebook Group.

  4. If you want it, others do too! Remember, if you’re craving connection that means other women are too! So don’t stop yourself from reaching out because in all likelihood the woman you’re reaching out to will be so glad that you did.

  5. Surround yourself with high-vibe people. Energy is contagious. Make sure you’re curating or joining a group that is as high-vibe as you desire to be!

If you’re ready to deeply connect with visionary, driven, big-hearted women who want nothing more than to support one another, collaborate, develop personally + professionally and create an epic business, then I invite you to apply for my Six-Figures Made Simple Mastermind™.

This is going to a very selective, curated group, because I want to make sure that each and every woman is a great fit for our tribe and gets the most out of it that she possibly can.

My Daily Routine for Success

 
The 3-Day Workweek Podcast with Cailen Ascher - 2019-04-10 - My Routine for Success.jpg
 
 

LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST EPISODE:


I always find it really useful when people share the routines that support them in creating the lives and businesses they want.

So...I thought it could be fun (and hopefully helpful, too!) to share my daily routine that sets me up for success. You know that I love me a good schedule :-)

For me, I find that structure gives me freedom. The more healthy boundaries I place around my time and the more regular my routine, the more my energy, creativity and income expand!

If we’re constantly rushing from one thing to the next, not giving ourselves the time we need to replenish, it’s a recipe for stress, anxiety and burnout.

On the other hand, if you set yourself up for success with a solid daily routine, you eliminate much of the decision fatigue and over-scheduling that result from not having a plan.

Alrighty, now that we’ve covered how important it is to have a nourishing daily routine,


here’s a glimpse at what works for me:

5:30 am

  • Rise + shine!

  • Meditate for 15-20min

  • Yoga for 15-20min

6:30 am

  • Morning jog outside

7:00 am

  • Girls are up!

  • Breakfast for girls + family time

  • Pack lunches

8:00 am

  • Girls to school

  • Breakfast for me :-)

9:00 am

  • Work day begins

  • Morning time is dedicated to creative projects (like writing, big-picture planning, etc.)

1:00 pm

  • Lunch break

  • 10min walk outside

  • 15min meditation or Yoga Nidra

2:00 pm

  • Calls (group trainings or client calls)

4:30pm

  • Work day wraps up

  • Play with girls

5:00 pm

  • Cook dinner

6:00 pm

  • Eat dinner

  • Girls to bed

7:00 pm

  • Watch a show with Craig

8:30 pm

  • Up to bedroom to get ready for sleep

  • Read + maybe journal

9:30 pm

  • Lights out


Something that works well for me is sprinkling me-time throughout the day. If this is new to you, at the very least consider “bookending” your day with self-care. For me that looks like meditation + yoga in the morning and reading in the evening.

I also do a little midday pick-me-up by going for a walk outside and then doing a short meditation or Yoga Nidra.

A big part of creating a routine that sets you up for success is knowing yourself -- your needs, your energy, your likes (and dislikes). What works for me may not work for you, but I do hope that seeing my daily routine inspires you to explore creating one that works for YOU.

I’m going to be hopping on FB Live tomorrow inside the 3-Day Workweek Group at 12pm ET to walk you through my Daily Routine for Success in much more detail! Click here to receive a reminder.

P.S. One of the things that really supports me is regularly connecting with high-achieving women who understand the importance of creating routines, systems and strategies that make success feel simple. If that sounds like something that would support you, too, my Six-Figures Made Simple Mastermind™ is now open for pre-enrollment, and I’m looking for 12 amazing ladies to join this intimate group of uplevelers.

Life is a Mirror -- what are you seeing?!

 
The 3-Day Workweek Podcast with Cailen Ascher - 2019-04-03 - Life Is A Mirror.jpg
 
 

LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST EPISODE:


Do you ever notice how if you wake up feeling a little off, you then spill your coffee, get stuck in traffic, can’t find that thing you need (or worse that your kid is screaming about) and everyone you encounter seems a little on-edge too?

On the other hand, isn’t it interesting how when you feel in the flow of life your kids are sweeter, your spouse is more helpful and business feels abundant and fun?!

That’s because life is a mirror. We see reflected back to us what we put out.

So let’s take this very literally…

If you would like to see smiles in the mirror most of the time, you have to show up with a smile on your face 51% or more percent of the time.

Pretty straightforward, right?

As you can clearly see in this example, there’s no judgment in this. There’s no trickiness or magic. There’s no secret element of the Law of Attraction that you need to understand. And, there’s certainly no need to cultivate your “worthiness” -- you are already totally worthy of smiles in the mirror :-)

Life is not judging or punishing you, it’s simply reflecting back to you the energy you are putting out. How you are showing up is mirrored back to you. Plain and simple.

So, if you want to receive more smiles, more positivity, more love, more joy, more peace or calm or compassion -- just show up with more of that just 51% or more of the time. Then the majority of the time, life will be smooth sailing!

Or, easier yet, just show up 1% more of the time with high vibes and smiles than you’re doing now to see an improvement. That’s all it takes to change your life. Just a little incremental upgrade -- a 1% shift.

If you want to (most of the time) receive something good back, you have to (most of the time) give something good out. Easy peasy.

You’ve got this. Now go smile at yourself in the mirror :-)

P.S. Pre-enrollment for my Six-Figures Made Simple Mastermind™ is opening in a few days! If you want to be part of this intimate group of high-achieving women, click here to be the first to know when the 12 spots officially open!

🚨 THIS EPISODE CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE 🚨


PLEASE NOTE: This episode contains explicit language. Be sure to grab a pair of headphones and put the kids to bed before tuning in to this episode.

Today I have a very special guest that I am so excited to introduce to you. She is a dear friend, one of my mastermind sisters, and a wealth of knowledge and inspiration! Elaine Lou Cartas is an Assertive Business Coach, global speaker and #1 best selling author serving clients in over 21 different countries. In her coaching role, Elaine specializes in helping women of color entrepreneurs scale their businesses through authentic relationships both online and offline. As a result, her clients have received $25k raises, transitioned into new careers and created their own global businesses.

As Elaine mentions early in the podcast, her past work experiences have shaped her journey to entrepreneurship and the work she does with her clients. She has held 29 different jobs, has been fired from 3 and quit 2 -- all before the age of 30! These experiences, especially her work as a grassroots organizer making over 240 cold calls per day, have shaped Elaine’s own journey to entrepreneurship, as well as the way she works with her clients. We really dive deep about the importance of social connections, building relationships, and taking your online business offline during this episode.

Elaine and I cover a lot during this interview, including…

  • Why losing her job was the best thing that ever happened to her

  • How to start using in-person events to grow your online business

  • The backstory on how Elaine landed her first client (hint: it includes person outreach!)

  • What Elaine means by “don’t propose on the first date”

Interview Highlights from 3-Day Workweek Masterclasses! [sneak peek]

 
Cailen Ascher - 3DWW Masterclasses - General Promotion - Instagram Post 01.jpg
 
 

One of the things that has helped me the most in getting to the 6-figure level in my business while working just 3 days a week is learning from the best.

Not long after stepping into my 3-day workweek, I invested in my first high-end coach because I knew that I needed support, guidance and fresh ideas to up-level my business in a big way.

It worked.

I went from inconsistent income and self-doubt to landing 8 high-end clients in just one month and having my first $32,000 launch!

Exposing yourself to success strategies, innovative concepts, simplifying systems and new perspectives is a vital ingredient to growth both as an individual and business owner, and I want to make learning from the best super easy for you!

I’ve put together a super high-value series of masterclasses with leading coaches, experts and entrepreneurs, so that you, too, can benefit from learning from the top players in the industry.

The 3-Day Workweek Masterclasses kick-off on March 4th and run through March 8th, and during those 5 days you’ll learn how to set yourself up for full-time income with part-time hours, just as I and all the guest teachers have done.

To give you a little taste of what’s coming and to get you even more excited, here are some highlights of what you’ll be learning during The 3-Day Workweek Masterclasses.
