In this Clevr Support Call we discuss the importance of celebrating your wins (big or small). It is easy to get stuck in the "doing" of things and forget to pause and celebrate, so we dialogued on the following with those who joined us live, and encourage you to ask yourself these questions too.
Check out the replay to hear how others responded for inspiration, and note you are not alone if finding ways to celebrate feels challenging.
We look forward to seeing you in our next Clevr Talk! If you haven't signed up to be a member of our network and join our live meetings, you can do so here.
Our Clevr Talk with Alex Kushneir was a great conversation about building an iconic presence. We dug into Alex's expertise on story telling, and showing up on social media- (and how)! You can see how genuine he is sharing his journey and his love for story telling. His focus on helping others share their story if they are a personal brand or business brand is the gifting he has leveraged to help people attract their ideal clients and service their mission with ease.
During the conversation, Alex shared the following insights to Kareen and Jeff's questions regarding the impact of producing videos that create a connect with your viewer, and stay on purpose. He answered:
As individuals and business owners, always heads down in the doing, we need to set aside time to pause, assess, and ensure we are stepping into aligned action. On this week's Clevr Support Call Kareen Walsh facilitated her favorite way to help you get clear on what to do next, the Retrospective Exercise! Doing this quarterly is a great way to make sure you accomplish what your set out to do this year.
If you want the prompts to do this exercise alongside Kareen, watch this video for the facilitation to walk through this exercise and gain the value you need to stay in aligned action.
This method of assessing your progress against you goal starts with writing out the intension you had this year, or picking one of the goals you are working towards.
Our Clevr Talk with Elaine Pofeldt was a great deep dive into her new book Tiny Business, Big Money. Imagine talking to over 100 entrepreneurs across different industries and pulling their lessons learned and methods to earning 7 figures together, that is the knowledge base that Elaine shares with us! If you have ever thought about an entrepreneurial journey or recently started one and you want to save time and money learning from those who have gone before you, grab her book!
Throughout the talk, Elaine dug into what it truly takes to become an entrepreneur, and how to scale your business creatively. Elaine pulled some great examples from her book to give the networks some tangible steps.
As we opened the floor up for questions from our community, Elaine answered:
Our Clevr Talk with Terry Rice was such a great conversation about Scaling Your Business. Being able to dialogue on creating a business out of leveraging your knowledge and know how is something the founders of the Clevr Network are quite familiar with. Terry spoke about his journey with self employment, how he realized that trading his time for money was not scalable, and instead leveraging what he created through his content and POV could be a monetized business that could scale.
His success comes from his curiosity to learn, taking his lessons learned, and sharing it with others to benefit from. As an avid educator and speaker, Terry loves when he is asked new questions because it allows him to create more content.
As we opened the floor up for questions from our community, Terry answered:

Highlights from the talk:
The discussion this month with founders of DECK Leadership, Shaun Peet and Mike Metcalf opening our network up to new thought, and understanding around what it means to create and consistently work to improve a culture based on values that demand diversity, equity, and inclusion. In this talk, Shaun and Mike share their personal journey of how they both ended up at Nascar, their individual desires of building a world class team of humans, and how it created the most diverse pit crew that Nascar has ever seen.
They were gracious to answer our networks questions and showed us first hand what it means to have uncomfortable conversations and still move forward together.
We could have talked for another 2 hours trying to get to everyone's question and continue to navigate ways to ensure that we are building cultures that are thoughtful of DE&I demands and learned so much in the short hour we had together.
