314: Finding Our Enough as Entrepreneurs with Keri Nola

Today’s session is very relevant to the season of life that I’m currently navigating. How far do we keep going as entrepreneurs as we reach our goals? How far is enough that our lives and responsibilities are balanced by the work we do and not pushed aside by work? How big do we want our business and our revenue goals to be? Join us for a closer look at “enough” in today’s podcast!

Our Featured Guest

Keri Nola

Keri Nola is a good friend and a repeat guest on the podcast, even though it’s been far too long since she has joined us here. After more than a decade of growing a prosperous practice as a licensed psychotherapist, Keri expanded her work into other avenues. She’s a best-selling author, podcaster, and founder of the Abundance Activator for Healing Entrepreneurs. Her global practice allows her to mentor healers as they conquer fear and doubt so they can step into their power and serve abundantly. Keri helps us dive into what “enough” is and why so many clinicians tell their clients that having more stuff doesn’t equal happiness—but they fall short in following their own advice as small business owners. Keri shares her internal thought process about building new products and services and her decision-making process.

  • Why it’s tempting and seductive to build bigger and have more
  • How your “more” should be aligned with your season of life, personality, and energy
  • How to evaluate your desire to grow–Where is it coming from?
  • The difference in feeling the slow simmer of a divine pull vs. the frantic need to compare and compete with others
  • Why it’s important to look for alignment, both in ourselves and in others we might follow
  • Why you have to welcome abundance as a resource to help you (and your team) relax and take care of yourselves
  • Why it’s OK to want to create something new in a way that serves others and helps you
  • How care, attunement, and mindfulness are involved in deciding who should work with us (It’s OK to say NO to working to some people–for their own good.)
  • How Keri has learned to figure out her “enough” by deciding what is true and checking in with herself for peace and alignment
  • Why you need to ask, “Am I living what is true for me?”

About your host

Profile picture for Melvin Varghese, PhD

Melvin Varghese, PhD

Hi. I'm Melvin. I'm a Vanderbilt-trained psychologist, entrepreneur, and online creator living in Philadelphia, PA.

In 2014, I began to think about how to use the therapy skills we learn in grad school, and in our clinical work into different realms (e.g., podcasting, consulting, online course creation, etc).

This allows us to serve others on larger scales while diversifying our income beyond 1 to 1 work.

I make podcasts and videos about business, tech, productivity, and lessons I'm learning from becoming the CEO of a lean, mean 5 person 100% remote team (we're not really mean..it just rhymed =P).
