“The Art of Growing a Business” with Meri Cherry

How do you prepare yourself to step into a leadership role, make decisions from a place of abundance over fear, pause to celebrate your wins, spend time with your family and rest? If sometimes you feel you can’t see the forest through the trees when you’re so in your business, this episode is for you.

In this episode, I’m bringing Meri Cherry back for a cozy conversation. She is the founder of Meri Cherry Art Studio in Los Angeles, California, which also provides mobile and in house art parties for top celebrities and influencers. Meri is also the author of Play, Make, Create: A Process-Art Handbook.

Meri was on a previous Lead with Love episode, so I’m excited to deepen our conversation today. She has cultivated and engaged a loyal online community of over 35k Instagram followers, 50k Facebook fans, and a popular website and blog with over 100k monthly visits at mericherry.com.

I’ve personally worked with and mentored Meri over the past two years in the Love Over Metrics Incubator –– an implementation program for women with big ambitions and even bigger hearts. Inside the incubator, we help entrepreneurs create a clear vision and strategic plan, so they can take the next steps for business growth to increase income, impact, and freedom.

“I really like knowing from the minute you enter the door, you’re getting this wonderful greeting, we know your name, and we want to make you feel special.” [14:49]

“It’s not about the (physical) space, it’s about what you bring to it.” [19:34]

“Things are going so incredibly well, and we’re so grateful. Now we get to make decisions from that place of abundance, rather than from fear or scarcity.” [31:31]

“In all the things we do, it’s so important to take a minute to look around and acknowledge all the great things that have already happened, before the big milestones come.” [36:29]

“I’m so proud that I can now participate in our family dynamic financially, in a different way than I ever was before.” [39:29]

“Sometimes you can’t see the forest through the trees when you’re so in your business, so to have a chance to get away for a day or two, it’s so rewarding.” [53:20]
