Lady Balls extraordinaire, Jody Jelas joins Tonya Dawn Recla as they dissect the power and allure of business confidence. Jody is no stranger to busting through limitations and challenging the bounds of reality as a powerful female entrepreneur. In addition to embodying disruptive brand concepts, Jody works with clients to combine the power of mindset, online presence, branding, offer creation, social media, and marketing in their businesses. Listen in as these reality-crashing women share stories from the trenches of business disruption.
Hello, everyone. This is Tonya Dawn Recla, your Super Power Expert, and you have a treat today. I’m very excited, I’ve got this big smile on my face. I love this woman, and I wish we were standing together and I could give her a big hug, but I’m doing that virtually. So Jody Jelas joins us today to talk about Business Confidence Equals Business Success.
This woman needs literally no introduction from me, but I am going to brag about her just in case you’ve been living under a rock or something or you don’t know all the stuff that she’s up to. But Jody Jelas is best known for, at least in my circles, for LadyBalls, right? There’s this LadyBalls Movement that she created, and I can’t wait for her to share with you kind of how that came about and the purpose of it. Because it just encapsulates this idea of being confident, in yourself and in what you’re doing in the world.
She also has the Profit Vortex, a digital agency where she helps people with kind of those bold statements, but in marketing and the business side of the house. So she’s a very, very, very well rounded business expert in those areas. I’m super excited to have her share with you all how important confidence is in business success. But also, like that’s great if we all think that way, but how do we do it right? How do we get that? We want it. How do we get it?
So without further ado, please, please, please join me in welcoming to the show Jody Jelas. Welcome, Jody.
Thank you so much for having me.
I’m so excited. You’re such a delight, and I’m really excited to dive into this topic with you because I think that it’s popular, right? It’s not that anybody would say, “No, you don’t have to be confident in business.” But how, right? The why, the how. So I’m really, really excited to kind of dig in there, but before we do we’re going to ask our question which is what are your super powers?
My superpowers? I think my super power would be tricking people into believing themselves when they’ve spent most of their life not believing in themselves.
Yes, she did say tricking.
Oh, and it’s interesting that you talk about the topic of confidence. It’s the one thing that we need the most, and it’s the one thing that most people lack no matter what level they’re at. And so, you know, a lot of it runs deep and sometimes we have to… They’ll form, you know people will form beliefs… Or we, self-included, form beliefs throughout their lives that they’ve used to not achieve what they want. And sometimes you have to trick them, get them to see things from a completely different perspective to see that they’ve been lying to themselves all that time. And sometimes it takes a little bit of mind trickery to get them to see that.
I would say it takes a lot of mind trickery. Like, that’s one of the biggest things. You know we came out, what was it three or four years ago now, talking about things like energetic manipulation. And the messages that I got, and what I was witnessing was it’s like NLP on crack, right? And what we mean by energetic manipulation is based on the idea that we are always either being manipulated by an environment, or we’re manipulating it. And that makes us super uncomfortable, right?
