“When we force a requirement around a referral, it’s just not going to work, because what we have to understand, the human dynamic and the psychology why a referral actually happens? It’s not about us.”

Stacey Brown Randall would claim that she had her masters in Communication and Ph.D. in business failure, but this is where it all started. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs she knew she wanted her own business but just didn’t know where to start. She moved on to be a productivity coach and focused her energies on helping new businesses and solopreneurs. Now she has created a new business by teaching people how to generate referrals for their businesses without even asking.

Stacey will be talking about how she started; her journey and the truth about what referrals can do for your business. She will also be discussing with Kim why you need to take care of the people who refer you and the famous 5 steps of Staecy Brown Randall’s program.

“When we are not aligned with what we value and not aligned with what we feel is not our purpose, our mind tricks us. It’s very clever on how it’s going to get us back in alignment.”

As she’s some kind of wonder woman, Rachell Kitchen is a certified life coach, mom, homemaker, business woman and a tireless volunteer. She has gone through so many transitions in her life which she has now chosen to use to consciously renavigate her path to where she wants it to go. At 50, Rachell is now helping other women who are in the same dilemma as she was to move forward and create a joyful and fruitful life for themselves.

Let Rachell Kitchen take you on her journey in finding her path in life coaching. Here, she identifies why people self-sabotage, what lessons you need to learn, why giving into emotions are important, and how life coaching is really a serious business. Listen on as Kim herself take in “Aha” moments throughout this podcast, and maybe you can get some yourself.
