I wanted to start off this blog post in order to reach out to all of you entrepreneurs who are wanting to know more about LivingUber and what this community can do for YOU.

If you’re a business owner working in the outdoor active lifestyle markets or an entrepreneur based in a mountain town, I think I might just know exactly what you want in life. And, I’m fairly sure that I can help you attain it too, with two brand-new trainings.

My name is Kristin Carpenter-Ogden and I happen to also be a mountain-town based serial entrepreneur. I’m the CEO and founder of Verde Brand Communications, a leading agency in the active outdoor lifestyle markets and also, the founder of LivingUber.com, a community dedicated to serving and supporting to entrepreneurs just like us!

The reason I am pretty sure I know what you want is because I used to be you. For many years, the dream of having the entrepreneurial lifestyle I envisioned when I launched my company was way out of my reach. I couldn’t even dyno to it, if I tried to. It was frustrating – really frustrating actually. Owning your own company is highly personal and it seemed the further away I got from the vision I had when I launched, the worse I felt.

Here was my dream:

  • I wanted to be my own boss (in fact, I was having a tough time working for someone else!)
  • I wanted to be able to set my own schedule, enabling me to be free to spend more time with family, friends being outdoors as much as I could
  • I didn’t want to be limited by someone else’s idea of what my salary should be
  • I wanted to focus my career on doing exactly what I love
  • I wanted to have job security right here in my mountain-town home

See? We have a lot in common….

But, somewhere between launching our own companies and making the business successful, the vision of having The Entrepreneurial Lifestyle became far more perception than actual reality.

If this is your truth, you’re SO not alone.

I grew so tired of working more, making less money and having very little free time that I almost gave up on my dream of being an entrepreneur several times – I kid you not.

While I quickly found out that having my own business didn’t guarantee The Entrepreneurial Lifestyle, it took me years of self-education, investing in consultants and frankly, being able to ask for help, to turn it all around.

I founded Living Uber to offer entrepreneurs and creative innovators support, insights, training and inspiration in a community of like-minded peers who have access to life-changing trainings built just for them. I am dedicated to helping my clients and my community members get on a new path forward as business owners. What’s the path, you ask? Designing your business to support your lifestyle.

In the past four months, I’ve researched and built two trainings that will help you achieve your version of the nirvana of The Entrepreneurial Lifestyle. It’s more than possible, and I want to show you how to get it!

The trainings are called the Play More Make More™ Kick-A$$ Business Classes. Both are audio/online based self-study training programs.

The first training is absolutely FREE because I wanted my community to get a sense of the work I do – it’s more of “the why.” The first training also is a primer – it will get your head in the game big time and sharpen your focus so that you can invest your time and money exactly where its needed to enable you to grow your business, refine your brand and take back your life! Register for it HERE.

The second is a Mastermind Course, and it goes deep on the “How.” The Play More Make More™ Kick-A$$ Mastermind Training is designed to deliver entrepreneurial mastery. Take this course and up-level your business, increase your income and profit and start living your ideal life – BOOM!

Both are hand-built just for passion-driven entrepreneurs who are committed to working in the active outdoor lifestyle markets or living in small towns that enable them to have fast access to their outdoor playground of choice (or both!).

Committing yourself to my formula, systems and approach will result in you:

  • Making more money by working on your business and not in your business
  • Attracting ideal clients and customers with an amazing, passion-driven brand
  • Spending more time playing outdoors
  • Being the relaxed version of yourself (no more overwhelm allowed!)
  • Having quality time with your family and friends
  • Having a life again, for Pete’s sake, and having more money and freedom to enjoy it!

If this is something you’d like to have in your life, join me! I mean, the first one’s free – what do you have to lose?

Here’s the overview for the FREE primer training, taking place Monday, March 2nd – Friday, March 6th:

Module 1 – Your Kick-A$$ Life

This first audio training focuses on getting your health, wellness and active lifestyle back. This is first because it’s the foundation of being, doing and having the life you want to have. Period.

Entrepreneurs can quickly get on that treadmill – you know the one. … Running, running and running more, not taking a break, and not really getting anywhere but you’re afraid to stop.

Suddenly, you look around and, well, you have no life! That’s certainly NOT why you chose to become your own boss.

If you’re not prioritizing your active life and outdoor pursuits because you feel like you don’t have time, this module will be great for you. I’ll share my personal approach to running three companies, having two kids (who have a lot going on in the way of activities), staying happily married and getting after it as a road bike racer and outdoor enthusiast. Wonder where I find time for that? Well, listen in…

Perhaps more threatening to your health than not being active outdoors or prioritizing the passions in your life, is letting your health go south. I can’t believe the number of entrepreneurs in our markets who got into our markets to be around like-minded people (active, outdoor-inspired professionals) yet they let themselves turn into the opposite because they are too busy running their own companies.

I spent years with anxiety, lack of sleep and in perpetual overwhelm – I’ve been there. I was far from “present” hour by hour – I was just head down, getting the work done. The second audio training is focused on your wellness because I believe that you have to be disciplined and train yourself to take great care of yourself to actually do great things in your company.

You’ll learn that not only do you HAVE to prioritize your wellness and health, but doing so will actually catalyze your business and life to more success and fulfillment. If you’re thinking that this sounds a little high woo-woo, set that judgment aside and listen to this. You, your family and friends and your positive state of mind will thank you!

Module 2 – Your Kick-A$$ Mindset

After you get your health, wellness and passions back in focus and part of a new routine, it’s time to layer on a mindset that will literally launch you and your business to amazing new places.

If you change the way you think about things, those things will change (thank you Wayne Dyer). Your mindset as an entrepreneur is THE most important ingredient to success. The second module opens up your ability to think bigger and remove obstacles that are littering your path to greatness!

First up is wealth consciousness. We all have baggage around money. For entrepreneurs, this shows up in knowing what to charge, how much to pay ourselves and establishing a great (not good) relationship with money and business financials. I believe in this so strongly that it is literally a cornerstone of my entrepreneurial trainings. I’ll help you clear out your money baggage and learn how to reprogram yourself, and stay disciplined to that reprogramming, to start generating the financial abundance you deserve. This stuff lights me up because it makes SUCH a huge difference in the successes my clients have in their businesses and in their lives.

Second, is a not-to-be missed primer training on incorporating mindfulness as an entrepreneur. This translates into being in the present moment. To those of you running on that treadmill, you can’t be present. And guess what? If you’re not present, you’re not aware of options other than running on that treadmill. Listen to this and learn how to start to make the changes you need to get your life back in your own control and to set the stage for a new paradigm with owning your own company. Plus, this stuff is easy to do! You just need to know the tricks and shortcuts, and commit! The path to being present in your business, making better decisions and cutting out the struggle starts here.

Module 3 – Your Kick-A$$ Business
Now that you’ve got your physical and mental “houses” in order, it’s time to layer on the keys to up-leveling your business!

I’ve divided the business training into two parts. …. The first is a training featuring my proprietary Passion-Driven Branding™ approach to creating a brand you love that draws your ideal clients to you like a skier to a pow day! You’ll learn how to position your brand, laser focus your attention on who you serve and why you serve them, and also, receive a bonus worksheet on connecting to your ideal client, customer, fan and follower.

The second part of the Business training is the brass tacks of financial management of your company. This was saved for the end of the training because it is such an important topic! Learn from my CPA and my CFO for hire (yes, there are two experts in this FREE awesome training) on what to focus on, what to prioritize and when and how to become an amazing CEO and lead your company to a sustainable and profitable future. The two experts featured in this training turned my company into a highly successful and profitable firm and enabled me to run it with confidence and authenticity.

If I did it, so can you! And once you start down this path, you’ll find that it’s incredibly empowering!
