And he's like, I've got my eyes on you because you need this session and you just never know. So get on over to the hygiene, write the review, posts it up in the stories. Get entered.
Let's get some Give away fun. Go in. That was weird. Okay, girl, I'll meet you inside this 10 by 10. Get ready. These are gold. All right guys. And this 10 by 10, I've got my girlfriend, Emily Lucco on with me. She is a 26 year old from Massachusetts. She's working full time and attending grad school at night. She's with beach body, but she hasn't actively grown team yet. And in addition to doing all of those things, she's looking into podcasting. It's been on her heart for a long time. So she's got some questions for us today. And if you guys want to connect with her, her Instagram account is @emluukko. Oh, Hey Emily. Hey. Okay. So question one, since I am with beach body, and there's the way they train is very the same and we all need to do the same on Instagram and across social media.
And I just feel so fake and now because of it, I'm super anxious to be on Instagram and to post anything. And how do I move past this? So you feel anxiety about being your own brand versus being the beach body brand? Yes. Okay. Okay. So I want you to remember that you are not a product right. And beach body. It's a product, it's a solution for people. It's also like a multimillion, if not billion dollar company and to be really brutally honest and you've got MLMs, don't like, don't come through a mad shade at me, but you're just a number. Okay. Yeah. So as much as we want and wish that, Oh gosh, I matter, we really don't, there's a million more of us that are selling the same product and that are doing it in the beach body way. So the way that you actually differentiate yourself in the online space is be an outlier.
And what I mean by that is just be you just talk about the transformation that you've had. You can talk about why you became passionate about the products. And the beauty of that is when you step away from just being branded underneath a product or a company, you now have an umbrella where you can branch out and you can add your own passive income streams. And if you ever decided you didn't want to sell beach body products or do that anymore, people wouldn't get shocked. So just start naturally, I'm stepping into this new branding, honestly, the sooner, the better, but if you feel weird about it and make it a transition where you do a couple of beach, body related posts, and then you do a couple branded and over in the next month, you kind of easily step away from the beach body style of marketing into your own brand.
Does that help you? Does that make sense? Yeah. No, that makes total sense. Yeah. It's just, I need to, that's what I'm nervous about doing, but it definitely needs to happen. Rip the bandaid off girl, it'll be, you'll be like, Oh my gosh, this feels better. This makes sense. And I think you'll get confirmation that your audience likes it too. Cause nobody likes to be spammed and sold to exactly. And that's where I'm really struggling. You got this. All right. So then question number two is I know you talk a lot about your spirituality and I have relationship with God. But I'm not really deep into it. And I want to know how and where to start to dive deeper into that relationship. That's such a good question. And I guess what happened, the, probably the answer is different for everyone. I want to start by saying that, but for me, what happened for me was I was always a Christian, but I didn't really, I guess I never really had like Holy spirit directing my life and speaking through me and moving my feet.
And I didn't even know that was a thing until I felt it. And so the way that I kind of started that process was I had to find a church that sparked my joy, that I could, like, I would go to church and just be like, Hey, this is cool. You know, but when I finally found one that every time they were doing a worship, I was crying every time that the pastor was speaking a message, it was like in my bones. And so we had to jump around for a while and find that right fit. That would fuel me spiritually. So that was the first thing that I did. And once I got into the right church for me, the right style, that was really moving me. I was shifted in a way that had me craving more of it. So the next step was I started praying like, like I'm talking Jesus freak style, praying like in the car, driving to work over lunch at night.
And like, I started to almost have this best friend style relationship with God and just open dialogue conversation and asking, and I quit. I got out of my own head about prayer, like, Oh, it has to be at night and it has to be perfect. And I'm like, God gave me these words. So he knows what the heck. I mean, I can stammer, I can talk to him like a friend. I can say what I'm frustrated about and ask him to help me. And so once I got out of my own way, when it came to prayer and started to open the dialogue every single day, all day, I felt him moving every hour. Like he would move things for me and bring me clients and bring me answers. And I would see like, Holy spirit signs all over the place. And it just started with me asking for it.
And then the third tier of all of this, and this is all over the course of a year, Emily. So it wasn't like overnight it's makes sense. The third tier was I had to get sisters in Christ and I had a lot of friends. None of them were super spiritual. And so I got into a Bible study with, with women that I knew would keep pushing me to grow spiritually. I started to work on the friendships that I knew were godly friendships. And I had to let go of some hard relationships that weren't serving this space in my life. But it's funny when I let go of certain people, God literally like within the same week, here you go. Like, here's this new friendship that I was waiting for you to be willing to accept from me. That brought me closer. I would say those are the three things that I really did.
Oh, wow. Okay. Yeah. I just got goosebumps about like Bible group. I really need to find that. So thank you. You're welcome. And my third question I am an Enneagram one, so I am such a perfectionist. Oh my Lord. I love you guys. You guys are so cute if your organization, Oh, that Yelp. And I just feel like I'm like stuck in my own way and I just don't know how to like basically shove myself out of my own way. Okay. I think, and this is hard for ones because this is very against who you guys are. Like, I'm a three. So that piece of my soul, it's easy for me now. It's not easy for me to like double organize a drawer though. So you guys got that over me. Here's what I would do. I would have like a hard discussion with yourself and let yourself know it is okay for this not to be perfect.
I need this to be done and don't get stuck in every piece. Needs to be clear before I do step one, because I also see you, your style, your personality style, wanting everything to be clear and all the pieces to be laid out before you. But that is a lie and that is unrealistic and it's almost impossible. So give yourself some tough love. Okay, I'm going to do something and it's not going to be perfect. And if you can chunk down to just step one, you've said you've been wanting to podcast step one. Okay. Instead of everything being perfect and everything being clear and having a hundred episodes laid out in a hut and my channel art is literally perfect. How about step one is let's just name it. Step two. Let's just come up with the tagline. Step three. Now I'm going to create channel art.
Step four. Now I'm going to do this and step five. I'm going to launch it with one episode. That's it. I'm not, I don't know who's going to listen. I don't know what the next one's going to be about. I don't know what I would sell. I don't know how long they should be. I don't know who my first interview would be, but I'm going to flipping do this because it's been on my heart for years and it is a disservice to my soul for me to continue to wait until everything is clear and everything is perfect to just do the dang thing. And so set yourself a launch date and say, I am doing this by January 20th, with channel art and my one episode. And it, once you rip that bandaid off, I think Emily, it's going to feel so liberating to see that you can do stuff without it all being mapped out.
And it's going to feel so gratifying to you that you're now going to be craving. Awesome. What's the next step? And what's the next step. And then the other piece of that is I would really encourage you to be accountable to someone other than you. So it would be whether that's a mentor, a coach, just a friend, a significant other, someone received. This is the date. It's this date. It's January 20th. And I don't care how unprepared I feel. I am launching it on that date. And if I don't do it, you can come in here and like slap me around, like get somebody that's like a tough love human in your life and make yourself accountable to doing the activity. Oh yeah. And I hope that helps. Let me think if there's anything else. I have a date in mind now that I'm just looking at my calendar.
What is it? January 13. 13. And my favorite number. So it's a Monday girlfriend. You got this, you so got this. I love it. And also, also I think that when it comes to being overwhelmed with stuff, remember that everything is overwhelming until you just do it once. Right. And also everything is overwhelming when you're looking at everything, because anything you've ever done before has many moving parts, podcasting, for example, that's why I'm saying, if you can just, instead of looking at the big picture and saying, Oh gosh, I have a brand and now I need a website and what's my freebie. Okay. What like, Oh, there's all of these components. Yeah. That's me. Yeah. So stop that and ask yourself, what is the most important thing right now today? One thing, just one. And until I do one thing, then I am allowed to look at thing too. Then I do thing too. And then I'm allowed to look at things three and that should help you navigate that space of overwhelm. And also knowing that action brings clarity, right? Yes. Yup. Oh, Oh, that makes so much sense.
I hope you love that quick 10 by 10 and that you took away some value to help you in your own life and business. And I want you to know that I am bringing on more women for hashtag STEM steps, where you will get 10 minutes to ask me anything, just like this.
