Do you have an expensive MBA? Sep 13, 2021

Do you have an expensive MBA? We talked a little bit this week about some of our most costly mistakes while building The Bradford. We didn’t always make the best decisions when it came with the design and the budget. But we both agree our biggest and most costly mistake (that we call our...

Being the face of your company Sep 06, 2021

A lesson I learned early on in business is that no matter what industry you are in, whether you are offering a product or a service or even just the best new idea; you have to be able to sell it - and not just whatever the product is, you have to be able to sell you too! Amie was so right when...

Are we leaving our industry better than we found it? Aug 30, 2021

Oof- I remember recording this episode with Lauren and feeling an immense amount of personal responsibility. Are we leaving our industry better than we found it? Are there things that we have “avoidance” for? We dove a little bit into that in this conversation with sisters episode,...

Ethics in Business? Aug 23, 2021

Owning a business can be hard, soul crushing, and seemingly unending at times. There are days that I work all day, get the kids fed and in bed, and work well into the night to get my list done! I have had to make numerous personal sacrifices personally to get to where we are today  - and you...

The Fear of Failure Aug 16, 2021

Failure. 

Who hates that word?! I know that I do. I hate failing. I hate being wrong, and I hate disappointing myself. Failure was (and still can sometimes be) a hard thing to come to terms with. What I LOVED about this episode with Jordan was that he put into words something I felt but...

Exposing the Underbelly of Business Aug 09, 2021

I loved it when Jordan said that “no one wants to expose the underbelly of their business” and it made me think about how hard it really is to be authentic on social media or wherever we are client facing. To be a small business nowadays feels like you have to constantly project an...

Therapy is Necessary Aug 02, 2021

Therapy - Just the word can evoke so many conflicting emotions- fear, failure, anxiety, relief, angst, joy. All of those emotions are valid and not any of them should keep you from therapy when it is needed! I have been to a therapist during many seasons in my life and it was always so helpful to...

F** The Naysayers Jul 26, 2021

I grew up being told I could do and be whatever I wanted to be. I told them I wanted to be President one day - my parents were all for it. I told them I wanted to be the best softball player - my dad coached my team. My dreams were never shot down and I was never told - “Maybe your dreams...

Do you feel significant? Jul 12, 2021

In a world where there are critics everywhere and you are literally one in billions, do you struggle with feeling significant? I had no idea that our conversation would turn into a legit therapy session - but it was so cathartic to really dig deep and unpack why I do the things I do. Why do I...

I love how Amanda tackles these thoughts that we all have, head on! Amanda is such a real and authentic voice on Insta and Social, I have followed her for a while...

Do you know your why? Jun 28, 2021

One of the biggest pieces of advice we hear over and over again is “just start! Don’t think about it, just do it!” And while I think that is a great piece of advice, I loved how Greg pushed back on that a little. Yes- just start, but also make sure you understand your why and...

Do you have an expensive hobby or a business? Jun 21, 2021

I am so excited for you to hear this episode with Greg Hedgepeth, founder of Substantial Magazine based out of Eastern NC. I loved his ability to use storytelling and anecdotes to provoke thoughts and promote actions! This conversation could have gone on forever as he is such a dynamic and...
