Today I want to take you behind the scenes of The BRAVE Society. Now, while The BRAVE Society is evergreen, meaning you can enroll at any time. We are currently in a promo period because we have gone through our six month Beta test cycle and now we are ready to increase pricing. So if after listening to this episode, you're feeling like this is a place for you, I want you to hop on over to the show notes or my Instagram profile @thetaranewman and submit an application to join us. All leaders are welcome here. So here's the takeaway for you. If you wanted to lever a product or service of excellence, beta test the heck out of it. Too many times I see people throwing everything in the kitchen sink into a service when really less is more. But the only way you're going to come to these conclusions is to experiment and test the outcomes you want to create.Read More
In a conversation I had with someone through Instagram DM, we were talking about her best investments in her business and the ones that didn't land quite right for her. One of the areas she had less success with were programs that were solely group-based. I totally understand this. I really do. A lot of my group-based programs have a tremendous amount of high-touch individual attention for this reason.
She mentioned, I'm gonna quote her. She talks about, “the lie that you can learn from what other people are going through, which seems to be a justification for most group programs.” This is what I really want to address. The fact that marketers are selling people on group programs saying that they can learn, you can learn from each other, and that this isn't always proving out.Read More

As leaders and business owners it’s important to be able to return to our badass selves as quickly as possible because our businesses need us to be bold, visible and valuable to others.
But let’s face it, we are imperfect and leadership is messy.
We are human and fallible.
We make mistakes, bad decisions, and even colossal failures (raises hand!).Read More
Today I’m sharing with you all the reasons you aren’t making the money you want to make. To be clear, my clients have all been in business for more than 5 years or seasoned executives and professionals. These are people who are making money. However, when asked to rate their financial satisfaction, they all say things are good but the would like more.Read More
If we're not in a larger organization that has a sales team, for most of us, we are solely responsible for the sales and income we are bringing into our business. And what I find a lot, and I am sure that Laura does too, is that it's not necessarily the doing of the things that creates dips or feast and famine. It's the energy, your energy that dips, that causes the feast and famine. And there's practical things that we can do to make sure that we're protected when our energy ebbs and flows, which it does. We're human beings. And there are some sort of like, emotional practices that we can do, to maintain our energy. So this is the conversation we're having today. I'm excited.Read More
I’m going to assume that MOST of you have picked a word of the year. This has become a tradition over the last decade to very hopefully pick a word that will embolden you to create change or achieve a specific feeling when the year is complete.
Today I wanted to hop in here and talk about your word of the year. I’ve intentionally picked now to talk about it because the rah rah-ness of the new year has passed. We have stopped asking everyone what their word is and you have most likely put your head down deep into the doing and perhaps you haven’t thought about your word in the last few weeks.Read More
If you're a leader who is crunched for time, is introverted, or has highly sensitive energy this episode is a must listen. I'm sharing a shift I made after working with Michael Rodrick last year.
This work inspired The Bold Leadership Mastermind Day and even The BRAVE Society.
This changed the way I people.Read More
Hey, hey, bold leaders. I wanted to jump in here this morning and share with you how I spent my 90 minutes of productivity this morning because what I did was I took action on somebody's podcast, and that's so important to do. I took action on Dr. Michelle Mazur's podcast episode, she's the Rebel Rising Podcast. I went in her way back machine to where she first planted the seed, the origin for her Three Word Rebellion. I decided that I was going to work on my three word rebellion for The Bold Leadership Mastermind Day.Read More
As I mentioned previously, I love sharing my reflections as a way of facilitating growth and development in others. So often I hear from people that they want to be more intention and discerning but they don’t know where to start. OR they want to be more reflective but they don’t know how. Starting anything new always feels so daunting. That is why we come together to do this radical self reflection together twice per month inside The BRAVE Society.
The things I’m sharing today are the things I’m present to after my 2018 reflection. These are the concepts I’m mulling over and really taking with my into 2019.
I’m sharing with you TWO of my favorite things -- lessons learned. I love sharing my reflections and insights because I think it’s SO helpful to hear the stories of others to give context to some of the strategies we hear. And the second thing I love talking about is MONEY and ABUNDANCE. And abundance isn’t money related -- you can be abundant with all different ways. You can be abundant in friends, love, health, good conversations and of course...MONEY. But please know, you can FEEL abundant without money. As a matter of fact, I believe it’s imperative that you be able to FEEL abundance in the absence of money.Read More
Today I’m sharing how I view January and really most of Q1 because I like to think that I have a different approach that will likely save you time, energy and sanity.

During breakfast my dad was reflecting on how far I have come. He remembers me making my first sales while we were on vacation together in Vermont during the Christmas holidays in 2014. He literally watched me launch my business.
It’s really amazing to look back and see what was nothing is now something. And not only is it something, it’s been growing at a crazy pace year over year. It provides consistent income for my family and allows me to continually improve.
Today I’m taking you back to the beginning after being inspired by a journal entry from 4 years ago, the week I filed the paperwork for my coaching business.
Today I'm joined by my husband John. Together we’re walking through what we do every Saturday, a family planning session. Together we cover family, business, and financial stuff. This allows us to be present in our week.Read More
