We end the episode with Absalom bringing Nami, who is unconscious now, to a zombie tailor and a picture zombie in another room. He wants him to measure her up, so she can be ready in time for their wedding.

So I do a lot of research. I collect images of microorganisms online and I have bought different kind of books. When I was in ASU I also did a collaboration project with the life science department, to use their fancy scanning electron microscope to watch the physical process of how they get the image results from the samples I provided. I provided a piece of tea leaf and other random stuff like moss. So I have a bunch of images from that. And I have a compound microscope at home. So sometimes I also play with that. So there is a lot of visual sources for me to create similar but different structures.

I think nowadays Instagram is pretty fantastic. It shows a lot of information and I can post a lot of information there. If you do a lot of hashtags people will eventually see. Then I have my own mailing list and I do send out invitations to people who have bought my pieces before or who have visited my studio before who are really interested in my work. So that is another way to tell people I will have a show. Also on Facebook.

Mike Klinzing: [01:12:57] Well, I appreciate that. And [01:13:00] I just want to say thanks to you for spending an hour or so with us tonight. And it was a lot of fun getting to know you and looking forward to sharing the episode when that time comes and to everyone out there. Thanks for listening. And we will catch you on our next episode, thanks.

Now, thankfully, Build Back Better bill died, never actually was alive, so it just never made it to life, thankfully. We worked really hard, I did a lot of podcasts and videos and blogs about it, and so did everyone in the self-directed industry, and so did a lot of our clients. So, it was kind of a joint effort that we were able to curtail that piece of legislation. Thanks also to Manchin and Sinema, who made sure that the retirement-related provisions were not part of any larger bill.

Shannon Mattern: Welcome to episode 352 of Pep Talks for Side Hustlers. And I am so excited to reintroduce you to today's guest Sarah Noked. She's been on the show before. We'll link up her previous interview in the show notes. You might also remember Sarah from the Side Hustle to Self-Employed Summit. Sarah, I'm going to let you introduce yourself and tell everybody what you do.

Shannon Mattern: Yeah. I think back on how I was so desperate to leave my day job and all these things that I didn't like about it, and focusing on all of that, and now that I'm where I'm at in my business, so many of the things that I had to learn to be successful at that job I use every single day to run this business, which is incredible. And I also want to acknowledge you and thank you because the last time you were on this show we really kind of dug deep into what an OBM is, what an OBM does, all of that stuff, which I will definitely link that up so you guys can go listen to that. But after that episode, I got my hands on the freebie that you had put in there and

Shannon Mattern: I was like, I'm gonna hire an OBM someday. And I started creating my own standard operating procedures and I followed all of the advice that you gave in that episode to do that. And then I brought on a team. I had a team member and I started kind of handing more stuff over to her. And then I brought someone else on and I started handing more stuff over to her. And then I was like, oh, wait, I'm being the OBM. And I don't want to be the OBM. So, I brought somebody on to be my OBM, and then we brought another person on. And I can tell you, it's been awesome, but it has been hard for me to let go of a lot of the things. But I wouldn't be where I am right now if not for that conversation with you. So thank you. Because I feel like I have my life back.

Sarah Noked: And that's actually not a lot of time. The trust is so, so important. You had mentioned that you knew her and you probably had experienced her work before. It's the same with the OBM on my team. I've known her for years. I've actually worked with her as an OBM. I was actually the OBM on one of the teams that she was working on as a VA, because a lot of people do that transition. And so I knew her and I knew what she was capable of and I knew she had the right skills. And so it was easy for me to bring her on. But back to the financial piece, because I think this is really an interesting topic of discussion.

Sarah Noked: So I always tell my students, you don't want to work with a client that is making less than six figures in annual revenue. And even like 8K to 10K a month, it consistently is kind of on the cusp of really needing an OBM. You might be your own OBM at that point. I think it's when you kind of get over the 10K a month mark that you can look at bringing on an OBM. First of all, I think people wait too long to hire an OBM. Shannon. You waited way too long so you could bring her in to manage all the things. But what I really advise potential people wanting to hire OBMs is, with all my business managers there's this sort of notion, even in the name, that they're going to manage my entire business. And the reality is an online business manager who is coming into a "freshly minted business" that's ready for an OBM is by no means managing every part and piece of your business. They might be managing a specific system. Like for example, I've worked in a lot of businesses, big businesses, I'm talking like seven figure online businesses with digital courses where I have been the OBM of the client care department, online department. So we've been responsible for creating the SOP''s for client care, managing the client care team and making sure that they have everything they need and reporting back to the client on the metrics around client care. But that's not by any means is managing the whole business.

Shannon Mattern: So what's going to get me to seven figures is going to be multiple OBMs doing different pieces of the business. And I'm seeing that vision. And I guess that's what I want for the people listening is to see the vision of there will come a day when you're not the side hustler anymore. You're the solopreneur. There will come a day when you're not the solopreneur anymore, you're the CEO. And like you said, it's a journey that we all get to go on and learn what we're going to learn on it. And it's the most fun thing I've ever done. The most rewarding.

Shannon Mattern: That is a perfect place to wrap up this episode. So go sign up for OBM Week. That's I will link that up in the show notes for you guys so that you can make sure that you sign up for that. Go check it out. If you are a stressed out, overwhelmed, solopreneur, definitely go check out the directory. Start exploring this OBM a world. Go to Just start thinking about" what would this look like for me?" And thank you so, so much for being here.

Casey O'Roarty 01:13Well, hi there. Hi. Oh my gosh. final show of 2022 final show of 2022 My friends. And guess what? It's just you and me. It's just you and me today. No guest bringing it back to the roots. I'm so happy to be here hanging out with you. Today's show is a solo show. It's a little bit of a recap. It's a little bit of launching us into the new year, happiest of holidays, everyone, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, all connecting around the themes of light and love and gratitude and celebration, I hope that it's been a really easy, gentle, tender holiday season. For all of you. I know that there is a variety of things that can come up that make the holiday season difficult. I'm thinking about people in my life, who have lost loved ones in the last year, who have lost relationships, I'm thinking about all of you who may be with kids who aren't in your home for the holidays for the first time, and how that feels being away from family, perhaps for the holidays, or moving through a holiday season with a team that's struggling, right, there's lots of things that can kind of dampen the vibe. And, you know, this is a part of the ebb and flow of life, right? This is the holiday that felt this way. And they're not all going to feel like this. And I just want to honor and acknowledge those of you that are working really hard, that have been working really hard for the last couple of weeks to just keep it together. I see you, and I love you. And you're not alone. And, you know, I hope that you had a lot of fun. I hope there was fun. I'm recording this podcast on the night that myself and my two kids and our new bonus kid all made gingerbread houses. And it was hilarious. And there was a lot of swearing. And we listened to Justin Bieber's Christmas album. And it was fun. It was light. It was silly. Some of the gingerbread houses are a little bit wonky, some of them look really good. And I felt like what was held was we're gonna have fun doing this. And that's what we did. And I'm really grateful for that. So yeah, holiday season, moving on moving towards the New Year. Right. One of the things that I got to do a couple weeks ago is a good good friend of mine, led a manifestation workshop. And it was all about releasing what we need to release for 2022. So that we can call in and create everything we want for 2023. And in a little bit, I'm going to talk you through one of the processes that we went through is a really, really powerful, and I want to offer it to you as a ritual for the upcoming New Year's Eve New Year's Day crossover. Right and by the way, so after the manifestation workshop, I was lucky enough to go see some live music here in town in Bellingham. And guess what, Melissa? If you're listening sweet Melissa walked up to me and said, Are you do you have a podcast called joyful courage and I nearly dropped to the ground. I was like, Yes, I do. Are you having a celebrity sighting? And I'm the celebrity. It was the first time that has ever happened out in public in the wild like that. And it felt really exciting. So Melissa, you completely made my day? By coming up to me. I'm so glad that you did. That was awesome. So that also happened on the same day as the manifestation workshop. So I don't know, was it related? Maybe, maybe not. But there's something to be said for putting things out there, right, like being intentional about calling in what you want, right? So last January, I led a virtual retreat with the moms in my workshop, I think it was a couple days after the new year. And we made vision boards. I prompted everybody, Hey, gather up pictures, symbol, stickers, whatever you want to use, we're going to create boards that represent what we want in the coming year. And so I made one too, and was really fun. We're all on Zoom. And funny enough, one of the big pictures was kind of like a cartoon drawing was of the Earth with a plane flying around it. Another thing was like grass, with money growing out of it. There was some things that had to do with soul care and self care. There were pictures that represent projects around the house that I wanted to make sure got done. There were pictures that just represent the love and connection that I wanted to create in my family. And guess what, you guys, I literally did a lap around the Earth. I did a lap around the Earth. I went around the world this year, was on my board and it ended up happening and I made some money, right, like abundance has shown up we're not rolling around in it, but there's been some ease. For us the membership has grown. Right? I love my membership. You guys. It's my favorite thing. And those of you that are in the membership, I love you. You're gonna hear from some of them later, the membership is growing. There's been tons of personal growth. Over here in my personal relationships and my professional relationships. The podcast is growing. And there were some epic shows this last year. There were some epic shows this last year. So I'm going to take you back at the beginning of the year when we announced I got to announce with my good friend, colleague, business partner, co founder of sprouted ball, about our merge joyful courage now lives under the umbrella of Sprott, audible and Julieta. And I put together the becoming spreadable series, the playlist will be in the show notes. The becoming spreadable series was the two of us teasing apart the five criteria for positive discipline. And it was so fun to do that because Julieta comes from the sciency early years, arena, and I come from the Purdue I come from a kind of the personal growth, emotional experience, teen years arena. And so coming together in these conversations was really fun. We brought everybody back to the basics of PD, no matter the age of your kids. And that was awesome. And then I also did a series last year early in the year alternatives to punishment. Right, I'll also put that playlist in the show notes. So it's hard, it's hard to shift our mindset during the teen years, if you're just coming into this whole framework of positive discipline, or positive parenting, if you're heading into the teen years, and you know, you want things to be different, and you found this podcast or whatever, you found positive discipline and you're like, okay, great, I'm gonna do it different. And then you try to do it different. And it's like, holy cow. What does this even look like? I can't even feel this out. Or if you're like me, and you did start off with positive discipline, positive parenting, but you got to the teen years and you were like, what is happening right now? I don't know what this is supposed to look like. I feel like the alternatives to punishment. Podcast limited series, is really useful in articulating the mindset of positive discipline during the teen years. And it's really great. Because every once a while, this happens a lot. Actually. I've got parents that I work with that show up to the classes that want to do coaching, and then they have partners who are like, oh, yeah, just tell me what to do or are resistant or just not involved really in the parent education piece. And this is a great playlist to slide over to them and be like, Hey, bud, or Hey, babe, you know, why don't you give this a listen. It really captures what it is I'm trying to do with the kids and give some reasons why. And it's useful. So the alternatives to punishment series. was awesome. I had Ian on. Do you remember that was last year I had Ian on my son, who's now 17. He came on episode 315 to talk about screens. And he drops a total bomb on me about a secret phone. Did you listen, that was pretty funny. I was like, what? So that was a great show. I really love that show. I got a lot of feedback around people enjoying listening to Ian and I banter about his screen use on that show. I also offered up this last year, another popular show that I got a lot of feedback around, which was episode 313, about family meetings. How's that going for you? How are those family meetings? We know it's a good idea. And there's plenty of things that get in the way of making it happen. I've talked to a few parents, even in just the last couple of weeks about Yeah, I know, I'm sposta. But there's not a lot of enthusiasm, or I feel like I'm driving it or nobody gets along, or Here's what I want to tell you about family meetings as we head into the new year, because, hey, New year, new opportunity to start family meetings. family meetings are meant to work for your family, which means you might need to make some tweaks you might need to play with it a little bit. So that it works out for your family, it might need to unfold differently. We always start with compliments. It's always a thing, we always plan for family time. That's always a thing. What happens in the middle of the problem solving the scheduling the planning, that is up to you. And you get to determine what are my kids ready for? Is this something that would be useful? You get to decide. I had a mom this week say so how do I not feel frustrated and overwhelmed during family meetings? And I said, Man, if I knew that I'd be having a much better time at my own family meetings. But actually, that's not what I said. I said, You know what? Let's think of a different question. So you don't have to feel overwhelmed, right? Like the structure is useful. It doesn't need to be overwhelmed. But we also as the drivers of things like this in our family, it also requires us to do some work around beginning with the frustration because rarely do I make it through an entire family meeting without some level of irritation, right? Because I have a vision. I know how I want it to go. I know how I want people to participate. But there's three other people in my family that are making their own choices about that. For the most part, it's good. I mean, for our family, it's a routine that is a well oiled machine, like they know what to do they know what's expected. It just gets silly, and I get irritated. And so that's an opportunity for me, right? It's an opportunity for me to stay in the process to not let my irritation my frustration, pull me out of the experience and send me into naggy kind of bitchy mom, right, I get to feel it, I get to read through it, I get to smile, I get to loosen up, pull my shoulders back, I get to remember that I always feel like this during family meetings, I get to have gratitude that our family comes to the table and sits down for family meetings, I get to do my work, just like you get to do your work. family meetings are not perfect, they are messy. And that's just how they are. So we get to start by just going in acknowledging that and checking our expectations. Right and keep it simple. You don't need to get all fancy with family meetings. You know, we do the problem solving piece. However, I'll tell you what, every week we talk about chores, that's pretty much the only problem that ever comes up during family meetings. And that's okay, I'm not going to judge that. This space is a space for personal growth for you, for your family. And it's just awesome. When you can connect like that in that structure with consistency. It gives your kids an opportunity to connect to have a voice. It gives you the opportunity what I love to like just drop in reset, you know, be together. Look
