This week we're diving into the Why Not Now? archives and revisiting Amy Jo's conversation with Jules Webber.

 

Imagine having a baby, moving cities, going through a divorce and starting a new business that generated 6 figures all in ONE year. Life Coach and this weeks guest, Jules Webber did just that.

 

In this episode, Jules and Amy Jo discuss how Jules navigated those crazy twelve months. It started just after her divorce when she realized she was approaching an “all or nothing” moment. She decided to bet on herself and go all in on the career she’d been dreaming of. 

 

In the first month Jules set a goal of making just enough money to pay the bills. Within 8 months she was making 6 figures.

 

Through all of this Jules made sure to stay focused on being a mother and taking care of herself as well. She shares how she was able to find value in herself as well as the steps she took to monetize that value.

 

Jules is a Renegade Accelerator alumni. She talks about the impact the Accelerator had on not only her business, but how it helped grow her confidence as an entrepreneur.

 

If you’re finding yourself in a place where you’re afraid to bet on yourself, listening to Jules’ story just might give you the confidence to go all in.

Meaghan Murphy is an Author, Editor, On-Air Personality & was recently named Editor-in-Chief of Woman’s Day magazine.

 

In this episode, Meaghan and Amy Jo discuss a recent Why Not Now? moment when Meaghan told herself, “If my new book becomes a New York Times Best-Seller, I’ll get the lightning bolt from the cover tattooed on my wrist!”. This If- Then-That approach soon became a wake up call that led her to the realization she needs to live in the present to be able to appreciate it.

 

Meaghan talks about her new book “Your Fully Charged Life”. She describes it as a radically simple approach to having endless energy and filling your day with yay. Living this way was something that Meaghan had to learn to do, and it wasn’t an easy journey.

 

Meaghan’s nickname was “Grumpy” as a child as she had a mostly negative mindset. She dealt with eating disorders, hospitalizations and the loss of her best friend at the age of 16. You’ll learn how she navigated this path, when she learned that happiness is a choice, and what you can do to pivot towards becoming an eternal optimist.

 

You’ll also hear Meaghan’s time management and productivity tips as well as her unique approach to creating social media content.
