A podcast is such an amazing way to grow your audience and build a brand. It helps you share your voice, pour into your niche, and build trust. Did you know audio consumption is growing by over 30% each year? People are craving audio like never before and this is YOUR opportunity to secure your spot in a massive emerging market... podcasting.
But... maybe you're thinking... what equipment do I need? Which software do I use? How do I record and edit? Where can I save money vs. outsourcing? Should I do interviews and how do I find guests? And, can my podcast make me money? (Insert a huge YES!!!!)

Last, because committing to a podcast was my way of showing up consistently and dedicating myself to my mission.

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 and let's get some giveaway fun go in. That was weird. Okay, girl, I'll meet you inside this 10 by 10. Get ready. These are gold.
Hey Lola. What's up? So in today's 10 by 10, I have my friend, my student, my client Joelle Suess with me. She is a top network marketer. She's has her own podcast now in the world, which is amazing. She's working on creating a course and planning her products out. And she is also a mom of two littles. If you guys want to connect with her after this quick-fire Q and a, you can head over to Instagram. Her handle is at Joelle Suess, and that's spelled like S like dr. Seuss, S U E S S.
Hey Joelle. Hey, my first question is I have two littles at home ages, one and three. I have so many ideas and so many things that I want to execute for my business. Well, I want to know, is, is building my business in the mom cracks of the day enough.
What wisdom do you have for a mom like me with littles at home and building a business. Okay. I really believe that this depends on your personality style. I think that this truly depends on how effective you are at hustling in the mom cracks. I think for 90% of people, it's not enough because they're home. You're cleaning up after the little humans you're making dinner. You are trying to do your business Instagramming and trying to schedule out 30 minutes to record a podcast. And all the while your kid is screaming at you because they want to fruit snacks, right. Or open my applesauce. So I think for 90% of people, it's not enough. Can you do it probably, but it could be at the expense of your sanity of the way that you want to parent. You know? So my advice is we're always going to build in the mom cracks nap time.
Amen. Get gangster, get focused in that nap time, wake up an hour before your family may be too. Okay. And that's fine, but I think you also want to ask yourself this question, how much time do I need to build this? Right? How much time do I want to spend, or do I have to spend to make this business into the business? I want one year from today. And if you go, okay, let me be really specific about this and ask myself, okay, I'm going to spend, you know, three hours a week, podcasting. I need an hour, a day to do social media. I need an hour a week for email. I need an hour a week for promotion. I need an hour, a week to work with clients or with my community. I want to build a course. And you come up with 15 hours a week, look at your planner.
Do you see 15 hours a week in the time slots? If the answer is no, get resourceful, like I promise you ladies, there is an answer for every problem, but it starts with getting resourceful. You know me like, I'm an, awfulize my gym. And I work from the gym every day. Like, it's perfect. I ask for help. I have my dad once in a while, take the kids. Or sometimes I'm like husband. I have like next Friday, I have clients all day from eight in the morning until three o'clock. I'm like, you've got to step up. So you've got to have hard conversations with the spouse, ask for help and really inventory how much time you need, and then carve that time out because we can't do everything and be great at everything. Does that help? Yes. Yes. And then I did implement you utilizing your gym daycare.
Like I do a little bit of a commute in a jaunt to a gym that has a childcare, nice function that I can utilize. And that has been so helpful to me. I think it's just always that question of like, if, if I had 12 hours in a day to sit down and work my business, I can easily get into workaholic mode. Sure. I think for me, it's that taking pause and being like whether the kids were in the picture, not M I could always do more and more and more, if that makes sense. Yeah. So my second question is my MLM is something I'm still passionate about. It still provides an incredibly blessed, incredibly blessed to have my MLM income. But as you know, it's not fully mine. And I have been doing it for over nine years now. So I've seen highs and lows when and why should I build another stream of income?
Okay. Why is because it's not yours and you never know what could happen to something that is not yours. You know, I was in corporate, got laid off overnight. I just saw my father in law get laid off overnight. I've seen my cousin's company do cuts all across middle management when they thought they were, it was the safest place to work. I've seen MLMs go under like that. So if something's not yours, you don't get to control the outcome and imagine, and God forbid, you probably will never happen, but we don't know. You spent night, a decade of your life building something that isn't yours and what if it was gone, you would feel, and there's not, there's a million things you take away from it that would make you better, better leader, better mentor all the money that you've made from it, the friendships, the personal development, but yet you're standing there and your hands are empty because it's gone.
So why? Because you have to, because you have to have something that's yours because you are created for something on purpose and there is something inside of you that was gifted just to you. You're the only person in the world that can do it. You're the only person in the world that does it, just like you, and it's your responsibility to share it. And you know, you're starting to dig into that. So why is because I believe you have to, and also for stability and safety. Now when yesterday there's never a convenient time to go well today I'm going to brand myself and start a business. And okay, here we go. Like, especially when you're doing a well, which is like, that's when you have to, because you are, you have water under the bridge and you have the money to stand on for now.
That's the perfect time. And it's probably also the time that feels like you don't have time to do it is when you should, but it doesn't have to be overnight. It's a progress, a progression. It's something that you can work on and cultivate over time. So just set aside that 15 hours a week is what it's going to take. Start with five and see how that feels and see how you can balance both because you don't want to let go of the MLM, but you want to grow your brand in tandem with it and let, and then easily slide the MLM under the brand. If you can, if we can find a way to make it fit together, it can feed your brand and help be the finances to back. You as you grow this calling work that you want to do, does that help?
Yes. Yes, totally. And then third question. I love your show episodes, where you are coaching people. And I am listening to those episodes. Those ladies are amazing. They're wonderful. They have so many amazing gifts and I can listen to those. I'm so pumped up for what they are doing, but it can make me feel like what my gift is. Isn't really that cool or interesting. And it makes me feel kind of boring and blah is this, this is, so my question is like how, what would, what advice I guess, okay. Start over my question is what advice would you have for somebody who just feels like their gift? Isn't that special? Okay. I think what you have to recognize is that everyone's gift is special because it's your gift, but everyone's gift is different. So somebody may have something super micro that's unique that we've never heard of before.
And it's just interesting, but it doesn't make it more important. It doesn't make it more in demand. All it means is it's different. And especially those of like people that live in your world, K their PR they're the productivity women, organized achievers. Those women are looking over here at the other Enneagram numbers and the things you're hearing on my podcast, and you're going, Ooh, that's so different and interesting, but those women are sitting over there looking at you, they're over here in this artistic realm or this whatever space musical space or, or whatever space they're in looking at you going, Oh, that's so unique and interesting. Like I just told you before we got on this call, like I attract one so much because I just wish I was you I'm like Joelle, you know, and Chelsea, Joe, like you guys are always organizing and sending me organization tips and like productivity stuff.
And it's not super natural for me. So it's very interesting to me. So maybe put on your perspective lens and say, it's not interesting to you because it's natural to you, but it doesn't mean it's not important. It doesn't mean it's boring. And it also, I want you to put you inside of it, no matter what you guys are teaching, there's a way to make it fun and a way to make it spicy and juicy and unique. And that's by embedding your personality flair and your quirks, your weirdness, your awkward, if you're super strange, if you're very businessy, whatever you are at the core who you are, let it come out in the way that you teach, no matter what you're teaching, that's what makes you shine in your own way. Does that help you feel like what you're doing is making an impact? Absolutely.
When you said I'm looking at people who are opposite for me and thinking they're so cool, and what they're doing is so great. And the people who have the I'm thinking that about seize, the qualities that I have and are seeking to be better in those areas. That was so helpful. Good, good, my friend, because you're doing great work. You're amazing. I know so many people need the stuff that you're teaching. And so you've got to keep digging into that. Don't give up on the call. You've been given, right? You dig in more fiercely. You give more of your heart and keep showing up for it. Thank you so much stuff.
I hope you loved 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.
