TRFE 191: How Frustration, Anger, + Unexpected Mistakes Built a Business with Kristen Fulchi

Season 4Lauren FrontieraComment

Episode Sneak Peek:

”Sometimes it’s wonderful and I have that confidence from the beginning of, “I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing. I feel it. And it feels right. And somehow this has come easier to me than anything ever has.” … And there’s other moments where it’s just like, “Who am I to be doing this stuff?”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Sometimes businesses don’t work out the way you expect them to. Sometimes you unexpectedly find your calling out of a moment of sheer frustration. And sometimes what feels like the worst thing that could have happened turns out to be one of the best.

I got to sit down with my dear friend Kristen Fulchi, a brand strategist, product photographer, and website designer, to share her story with you. And it’s includes all of the above lessons and more. Kristen first came on the podcast in episode 73 where she shared about the frustrations she was experiencing with her previous business.

Not long after we recorded that episode, Kristen found herself full of anger and frustration, and she channeled those emotions into what would become her newest business. She has since sold the previous business and is now pouring her passion into her work every day.

This is a must listen, my loves!

We talk about…

  • What it feels like to pour a ton of money and time and effort into a business and not see the results you’re expecting

  • How Kristen’s current business was birthed out of anger and frustration

  • How anger can be a motivating emotion

  • Coming to the decision to sell her first business (and how she sold it)

  • Letting go of this story that you must have formal education (versus experience) in order to be successful and have credibility

  • The story of how the TRFE logo came to be (Kristen designed it!)

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

In this episode you’re going to hear from a female entrepreneur that is a fifth generation family farmer. Amanda Jo Carey appeases my wild interest in living and working on a farm and answers all of my questions about what it’s really like (birthing calves, 17 hour days, and more). We also talk about one of the most profound lessons she’s learned that happened when she was a little kid trying to help her dad make spaghetti … and how it still applies to her everyday life.

We talk about…

  • How limiting a word like “can’t” can be

  • What life is really life as a fifth generation family farmer

  • Working 17 hour days while also planning a wedding and remodeling a house

  • Why Amanda chose to come back and work on the family farm despite her dad’s reluctance

TRFE 189: Finding the Magic in Launching with Lauren Frontiera

Season 4Lauren FrontieraComment

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:

”When you force things, and you shut doors and you say 'this is exactly how it’s going to look and this is the date when it has to launch' … you close yourself off from allowing those answers, those strokes of genius, from coming in.”

WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

The launch of my new membership community, The Sisterhood, was unlike any launch I’ve ever done before. And it all started several months ago with a totally different idea. So, I wanted to pull back the curtains and share with you where the idea for The Sisterhood came from and what the past four months of planning and preparing to launch have really looked like. I try not to sugar-coat things here on the podcast and so I’m also trying not to water anything down either.

So, you’re going to hear …

  • how creating my membership community was such an easy process

  • how big magic played a role

  • and how I created a team of ambassadors to help bring the community to life
