Stop Surviving and Start Living [Podcast]

I can’t say enough great things about Crystal Paine, the Money Saving Mom. Not only is she an incredible entrepreneur, but she’s also a phenomenal influence to so many folks who are tired of just surviving.

Crystal joined me on the podcast a few weeks back to talk about her journey as an entrepreneur, as well as her new book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. Problem is, she’s so deep with great information that we didn’t even get to the book!

In rockstar fashion, Crystal was gracious enough to do another interview so we could dive into her newest release on the 9 simple strategies to stress less, sleep more, and restore your passion for life.

And trust me when I say, YOU NEED THAT! We ALL need more of that in our life!

Dinner with Crystal Paine – Q&A Series

September 26, 2013 | By | 14 Comments">14 Comments

So many times as leaders, message bearers, or speakers, we’re so concerned about how we’re delivering our product, pitch, or speech that we lose sight of who it’s intended for – the audience! We tend to focus on what they’re thinking about us instead of how they’re receiving the information.

Crystal Paine is the genius entrepreneur, mother, and home economics multi-tasker behind She’s also the author of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget. We had a great conversation about being message bearers and caring for our audiences (this could be your customer, your team, followers, etc.) and I’m sharing those thoughts with you in a new Q&A Series video.

Whether you’re giving a presentation to your team, or speaking to your tribe, keep these things in mind:

  • What is the audience hearing?
  • What is the most important information I can share at this time?
  • Am I taking care of my customer, team members, audience, etc.?

When we care about what people hear, the focus will be on them and the message.

Question: As leaders, team members, or message bearers, how do you communicate to your audience?
