Sarah Morgan Dawson was a young woman of 20 living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, when she began this diary. The American Civil War was raging. Though at first the conflict seemed far away, it would eventually be brought home to her in very personal terms. Her family's loyalties were divided. Sarah's father, though he disapproved of secession, declared for the South when Louisiana left the Union. Her eldest brother, who became the family patriarch when his father died in 1861, was for the Union, ...

Wondering how all those online business owners seem to be motivated and showing up 24/7?? They’re not! They have habits and practices to help them get motivated when it’s time to work. As a solopreneur, staying motivated can be a challenge. You end up with a lot on your plate and it’s not easy to stay motivated without someone holding you accountab…
 
Attn Solopreneurs: If you’re feeling overwhelmed by everything on your plate, pulled in a million directions, and like you never got enough done when 5 or 6 PM rolls around, then this week's podcast episode is for you. Because it’s time to talk about setting up systems. As someone who left a corporate job to freelance full-time partially for the ti…
 
This week on the podcast we’re talking about hiring! This is something that not only has brought so much relief and ease to running my business, but has made what I create and share BETTER. Also...hiring people is a pretty boss move. Andréa Jones and Xayli Barclay are joining me this week to talk about finding the right candidates, creating an onbo…
 
This week on the podcast we’re trying something new! You’re not just going to hear from me about my best business decision, but I have two guest contributors for this episode, Ashley Burnside from Healing Hustle Co and Christina Nicholson from Media Maven PR. It’s my sneaky introvert way of adding other voices to the podcast without a full-on inter…
 
POP QUIZ: When is the last time you took a day off? Last week? Last month? Last year?? When my clients and students come to me and say they’re feeling stuck, stalled, or worn out by their business THAT is the first question I ask. Because if everything is difficult and you’re procrastinating more than usual there’s a good chance you’re headed for b…
 
Do you still post on social media on the days you feel like garbage? That’s a question I got from a client recently and it was great timing because I was already in the middle of writing this week’s podcast episode all about...Showing up on social media when you don’t feel like it. Whether it’s a bad day, a busy week, or a hot mess of a month, no m…
 
This month marks nine years in business for me. And while it feels like I am on a roll now, I think back to the first couple of years or even before I had left my corporate job and I could not have imagined being here nine years later. At the very beginning I was just focused on paying my bills, not eating ramen for every meal, and not having to go…
 
Here’s something I’ve learned over the last 9 years - the way I talk about my business directly affects how I show up in my business, which directly affects my growth. If I talk about myself as a entrepreneur vs a CEO vs a freelancer vs a coach it really does shift my mindset around the impact my business can have, how big my business can get, how …
 
Two questions for you today: Do you have a freebie to grow your email list? And...is it actually doing its job and attracting more subscribers? Because my freebies (workshops, PDFs, templates) are the ONLY reason my list grows every single day without me having to do a thing. This means when I’m walking the dogs, when I’m laying by the pool, when I…
 
How many times a week do you think about posting on social media, showing up live, sending an email list to your audience and...you don’t. You worry about sharing the right things, other people in your niche doing similar stuff, what your friends and family will think about your “little business.” Well my friend - it’s time to get over that and rem…
 
Ever wanted to share something on social media and then stopped yourself because it felt too personal? Or watched someone else share what seems like everything and wished you could too? Or felt that that would be way out of your comfort zone? This week on the podcast we're talking about where that line is. And I'm sharing a little life update and m…
 
How do you get through the bumps in the road, difficult decisions, and all out failures that come with running your own business? How do you rebound quickly without letting the little and big hiccups slow you down, smash your confidence, and knock you off your game? If you said - eat a pint of ice cream while binging Netflix...you’re partially righ…
 
Ever watch someone go live and think...I could never do that. I could never talk for that long. I could never feel that comfortable with all those strangers watching me. It might surprise you, but I felt that way too. Hitting the record button or the “go live” button and feeling my body go cold, my voice start to shake, and suddenly my perfectly pr…
 
When we start our businesses we’re trying to get every client and customer possible which can lead us into work situations we might not prefer. Things like working long hours, responding to a client emails 8 times in one day, sending extra revisions. When we’re hustling for every dollar the rules tend to fly out the window and our boundaries become…
 
Feel like everyone on Instagram is hanging out without you? Sometimes it seems like everyone on Instagram is making new friends, networking, making connections, and you are in your own little bubble with no way to reach out to new people. You’re posting and posting and posting and doing all the right things but barely anyone is noticing or respondi…
 
How many times a week do you think, “I really need to do that, but I don’t have time / money / enough x, y, z to make it happen right now.” Most of us have a list a mile long of things we would do, should do, really want to do but can’t figure out where in our jam-packed schedules to fit another thing. So today we’re talking about finding space, ma…
 
Pop Quiz: Are you making business investments based on strategy or shiny object syndrome? If the answer is the latter, don’t panic, most online businesses start that way too. Mine did! I bought all the courses and guides and templates because I didn’t really know what I should be spending my money on so I bought everything that sounded like it woul…
 
If you've been avoiding Stories, creating Reels, or posting selfies, I recorded this episode for YOU. 10 years ago you could get away with building a brand and not including yourself as part of it. But if you're running businesses online, asking strangers on the internet to pay you, then you need to hit a level of trust that only comes from allowin…
 
I bet you are very curious about what this podcast is going to contain from that title! To be honest, I was a little nervous about this episode because most ”successful” business owners don’t talk about their failures, let alone post a title saying they made zero dollars on a launch. But I hopped into my mastermind group, told them what I wanted to…
 
“I need to be able to fit all of this business stuff into the time I have and I don’t have a lot of time right now.” This is what I heard over and over when I sent out my last audience survey. Which I think was a massive issue for everyone in 2020, especially for parents and the people who were newly working at home. So I wanted to share this episo…
 
This week we’re talking about hacking your own motivation to help you stick to your weekly schedule or really anything that you want to keep up with consistently. I know lots of you (like me) love to make a plan, but aren’t always so in love when it comes to doing the work. But that is a big contributor to success - doing the things you planned to …
 
One thing I’ve learned in the past eight years in business is that, as much as I love hanging out on Instagram, the money is in your email list. Why? People pay more attention when they’re going through their inbox than they do scrolling social media. No ads, no puppy videos, no dance tutorials. When people are paying attention they need to see thi…
 
Is eating the same breakfast as your favorite entrepreneur really going to help your bottom line? Sounds silly, but it actually might! After reading a ton of business books I discovered that they ALL have a section on mindset. And after reading a ton of personal development books I’ve discovered how your daily habits contribute to your mindset. So …
 
The beginning of a new year feels like a good time to make changes, set challenging goals, or finally go after the things we kept saying we wanted to do last year but we never got around to it. In this episode I’m sharing the strategies that are helpful when making a significant change or big decision in your business. If you’re thinking about rais…
 
Last week we talked about all of the things that didn’t work to grow my business in 2020 and this week we are going to talk about all of the things that DID work. Despite 2020 being a flaming host mess most of what I did in my business actually worked to grow my audience and my income and keep that biz-related stress to a minimum. My main challenge…
 
It’s the end of 2020 (finally!) and one of my favorite things to do every year is evaluate the past 12 months and make a plan for what I want to accomplish next year. I look back at all of the projects, marketing, courses and programs, and generally how I ran my business to see what things worked really well and what things didn’t. Because one of t…
 
This week we’re talking about the mistakes that might be slowing down your marketing strategies and making it difficult for customers and clients to find you. Luckily I’m not going to tell you to ditch your strategies or completely change direction. Whether you’re marketing your business on Instagram or Facebook, hosting a podcast or workshops, run…
 
Oh yes my friends Instagram has added yet another feature to their platform. We were just getting used to Reels, figuring out what to do besides dancing and lip-synching and pointing at things and now we have to figure out Guides. So at this point with all the options and different types of posts for each, you might be getting stuck for what goes w…
 
How many different ways are you marketing your business? Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube Website, email, freebie, ads LinkedIn, landing pages, summits Podcasts, upsell, challenge, webinar Whoa. Do you actually have time for all of that? What if I told you there are really only 6 Essentials you need to figure out? Much better, right? Often w…
 
POP QUIZ: When was the last time you took time off from your business? Not just a night or weekend, actual scheduled time off. Like set up an out-of-office email responder, gave your Instagram audience a heads up, stayed off your lap top-time off. I’ve had this conversation with three people just this week and the reason we had those conversations …
 
Sending out a yearly survey is one of the best ways to understand what your audience is working toward, where they’re getting stuck, and what they need from you to accomplish their goals. You’ll get their challenges in their words which you can then copy + paste right into your emails, Instagram posts, sales pages to make them magnets for your idea…
 
This week we’re talking about communities, which is kind of a funny topic for me to be excited about because I am super introverted and I love working alone. LOVE. IT. Like on the couch, with my laptop, in my quiet apartment, typing away all day long. No one asking questions. No one needing anything from me. No one interrupting my flow. I’ve been w…
 
I see you over there, scrolling through Instagram, watching what everyone else is doing and trying to figure out how to make their strategies work for you. I know you’re doing it because I’ve done it too. But the problem is - whether you’re trying to grow on Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, etc. - if you’re watching from the outside you’re only seeing…
 
Last week we talked about growing your engagement by showing up with more of your personality, more of your stories, more of your experiences. This week I wanted to drop an episode with actual strategies you can test to help you boost your engagement. Give it a listen and then share a screenshot on Instagram, tag me @xosarahmorgan, and let me know …
 
How do you get more people to leave comments, send DMs, respond to stories, share and save your Instagram posts?? Instagram only shows your posts to a small percentage of your followers to start. If those followers engage with your post, that signals to Instagram that your post is worthwhile and it will then show your posts to more of your follower…
 
It’s almost Q4 which means I just sent out my audience survey and in return I received a bunch of Instagram questions, so that’s what we’re going through today! I’ve got answers for getting more engagement, what info to give away for free vs paid, how to show up on Instagram as an introvert, and more. Thanks in advance if you sent me questions! If …
 
This week I want to talk about being confident and owning your expertise. I’ve been editing lots of sales pages for my Dare to Grow students lately and something I notice (not just with them, but with lots of businesses) is a tendency for solopreneurs to skate around our expertise when speaking about the skills people will learn, the transformation…
 
This week I thought I’d give you an update on what I’ve been focused on, what I’m doing in my own business, some personal updates. I like hearing the behind the scenes stuff from other business owners (not just the cute stuff they share on Instagram) and getting a peek into what they’re working on, so I thought you might be into that too! Resources…
 
Last week we talked about specific productivity hacks to help you get more done during your workday. But as you’ve probably figured out, planning in advance, focusing on the priority tasks, time blocking your day isn’t always enough to get the work done. Our minds like to get in the way, slow us down, tell us crazy things about why we can’t or shou…
 
I don’t know about you, but this past week has been jam packed. I just onboarded all the new Dare to Grow students so I hosted lots of coaching calls, we just got a 5-month-old puppy, and my boyfriend has been working extra long hours. So I’m trying to get as much done as possible, keep my work days short, and still be a rockstar coach for all my s…
 
Does this sound familiar? You know you should be working on a certain task or project and you’re fully aware of the potential it has to grow your business. It’s even in your calendar, but every time you even get close to one of those tasks, you push it back. You keep telling yourself - I’m not quite ready, I’ll do it tomorrow, next week will be bet…
 
Generally when we talk about self-care, it’s taking a bath, going for a walk, or meditating. And while I’m very into all of those things, there is a different type of stress that comes from putting yourself out there, running a business solo, and testing strategies not really knowing if they’ll work. Which means it’s important to implement a differ…
 
My digital product coaching program, Dare to Grow, is open for enrollment right now (last time I’ll be running it this year) so I want to give you a bit of a head start in figuring out what type of product you should be creating. Obviously online courses are very popular right now, especially with a lot of offline businesses moving online during CO…
 
Enrollment for Dare to Grow, my coaching program dedicated to helping you create + launch a digital product is opening NEXT WEEK (August 3rd) So in this episode I’m sharing what you need before you dive into creating your first digital product. (Whether you’re going to hang out with me or make it happen on your own!) Yes, you need to pick an ecomme…
 
If Nike didn’t have dibs on the slogan “Just do it” I would totally use it for my business because teaching solopreneurs how to be confident about taking action is my FAVE! In today’s episode we’re chatting about why it’s so hard to stop over-planning and overthinking and I’m sharing some examples from my own business of how I take fast and imperfe…
 
I never have enough time to create content! Let's be honest, with the number of platforms we're on, creating content and showing up daily can be really challenging. How are we supposed to produce posts for our blog, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, podcast, and email list, PLUS tend to our customers and clients, AND still have time at the end of the d…
 
If you’re putting in a ton of work, doing all the things, and not making enough money in your business, this episode is for you! I totally get it, unless you’re a business coach, marketing, sales, and social media aren’t your expertise. Plus there is endless amounts of information and a lot of it is contradictory, which means it would take you like…
 
Is your to-do list full of tasks that move you toward your goals or tasks that just keep you busy?? This is an issue I see all the time when my clients and students decide to take on something BIG - creating a course, launching a podcast, stepping up their income goals. They’re all excited, making big plans, ready to rock and then...distracted by r…
 
How do I find the right hashtags? How many hashtags should I use? Why did my hashtags stop working?? In this week’s episode I’m sharing my recent hashtag experiment that tripled my impressions from hashtags on a whole bunch of my posts. Per usual I’m simplifying the strategy so you can gain new followers and give your posts a boost without wasting …
 
The year is half over and with all the quarantine stuff, weeks are flying by even faster now. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been extra focused or if my brain + body are just trying to move through the rest of 2020 as fast as possible. If you’re also wondering where the last 3 months went and are feeling like you’re falling behind, today’s episo…
