With Flow
Welcome to the With Flow Podcast! A weekly show for purpose driven women who are ready to embrace a feminine approach to business. This podcast is for you if you've ever wished online business could feel easier. That you could do it without the need to hustle or constantly be on the hamster wheel trying to make progress. We'll be exploring all things cycle awareness and intuition, combined with the more practical aspects of business like systems, workflows, planning, and tech. Because we need the balance of both energies to reach our goals. Too much of the more feminine energy can mean you have a lot of amazing ideas and feel really inspired, but the world never gets to see them because you don't take any action. On the flip side, too much of the more masculine energy can mean you keep pushing and taking action that is out of alignment with your big business vision. The show will a combination of short sharp and value packed episodes designed to educate and empower you to change the way you plan and run your business, and guest interviews with other inspiring women in the online business world. I'm your host Laura from Laura in Order. Systems Queen, Cycle Awareness Coach, and lover of launches. Over the last few years I have been on my own journey from corporate burnout and adrenal fatigue, to online business consultant, learning to do business in a way that feels easy, grounded, organised, and most importantly fun.

Launching without the overwhelm
November 29, 2021 • 10 MIN
For almost everything in life and business, the first time you do something is always the hardest. Because you have no clue what you're doing... And it can feel really overwhelming when you're in that sink or swim phase, until you learn how to keep afloat. Launching is exactly the same! You look around and see people on the internet doing it, and think well it can't be that hard... Until you launch for the first time and realise there is more to it than the internet tells you. And as time goes on, your launches get bigger and more elaborate, and with that can come even more overwhelm. So in this episode I wanted to share some of my favourite tips for launching (whether it's your 1st, 2nd or 10th) without the overwhelm. Key points in this episode: 1 - Set your launch goals 2 - Have a plan 3 - Get help with the things that are not your zone of genius 4 - Launch around you cycle! 5 - Prepare before you launch 6 - Focus on your energy

Embracing my inner lazy girl
October 25, 2021 • 11 MIN
The world we currently live in doesn't accept laziness. It's seen as a bad thing, not something to aspire to. We live in a culture that glamourizes hustle and praises hard work. But in recent years I've been working to embrace the lazy part of myself. It hasn't been easy, she was buried pretty deep and hard to find thanks to all that conditioning and lifelong habits. But after burning out pretty bad, I knew embracing her had to become part of my life if I wanted to heal and not repeat the same patterns. Key points in this episode: * If your body or mind is tired, you need rest, especially in the luteal and menstrual phases! * You should never have to feel guilty about slowing down and resting, its a normal part of how our bodies work and communicate with us. * My tips for embracing your own inner lazy girl. * A reminder that we are cyclical beings - we have our 24 hour circadian rhythm and our monthly cyclical rhythm, both of which require rest!

Realigning my Business
October 11, 2021 • 13 MIN
The last few months have been a huge process of uplevelling for me. Back in episode 21 I talked about how to get out of a funk in your business. And that was really just the beginning. That feeling of being unmotivated and lacking clarity on where to go.... was leading me down the path... I could feel big changes were coming, but I didn't have full clarity on exactly what they were... I just knew that I had outgrown and was no longer in alignment with huge parts of my business. And it was really freaking scary, because although I knew what needed to go, I didn't have clarity on what was coming in its place. So in this episode I let you in on what changes are coming to my business and the podcast, and also chat about how I navigated this process over the last few months.
The journey to embracing your cyclical nature
October 4, 2021 • 13 MIN
Before I learnt about and embraced my cyclical nature I lived pretty much full time in the masculine energy of doing all the time.

In fact 4 years on, I'm still always learning. In this episode I share my 5 key steps to embracing your cyclical nature.

Let's talk about productivity
September 20, 2021 • 15 MIN
This is not your average podcast about being productive. Because most advice out there falls short and prescribes what and how you must do things to be productive. And what's missing from most productivity advice is that its more than just being efficient and ticking things off your to do list. You want to be effective as well as efficient - working on the right things that are aligned with your goals and vision.

The shadow side of planning
August 30, 2021 • 10 MIN
For most of my life I was a complete control freak... I planned everything to the most minute detail as a way to control the outcome. I lived in fear that things wouldn't go to plan, and so I invested so much of my time and energy into trying to make sure it did. It wasn't just about the plan, but it was planning for all of the possible outcomes and if this happened then do this or if this happens then do that. I became paralysed by all the planning without taking much action... And it was freaking exhausting! And this is the shadow side of planning. When we use it as a means of control. So in today's episode I shared some of my journey of learning to let go of my addiction to control.

Intention, Alignment, Connection - Breaking down marketing buzz words
August 2, 2021 • 12 MIN
In today's episode I'm breaking down some of the marketing buzz words I've observed over the last while and what they mean. Intention, alignment, and connection are kind of big buzz words when it comes to women in the online business world. These words get sprinkled in SM captions, sales page copy, emails. And, somewhat ironically, I do wonder if people are being intentional with their use of these words or they're using them as fluff and filler without much meaning behind them.... So today I wanted to break down what they actually mean to ME, and why I use them in my content and copy. Key points in this episode: * Intention - being conscious and considered about the actions you take, the decisions you make, what you say yes to and what you say no to * Alignment - taking action that is in integrity with your values or is taking you towards your goals * Connection - building genuine relationships with your audience, engaging and having conversations
