How She Built a 7 Figure AND 6 Figure Business WITH 4 Kids (with Jessie Harris Bouton): Episode 138

Jessie Harris Bouton - wife and mom of 4 (almost 5), a 17 year entrepreneur both on and offline, a certified life and business growth strategist, author, speaker, and former professional 300+mph race car driver. After retiring from drag racing as the world’s winningest driver in the history of the Jet Dragster division in both the male and female categories, a major career and life change left her lost, depressed and wanting more.  Intentional living techniques saved her life, her marriage, her motherhood, her health, and grew her businesses exponentially as she found purpose in her experiences. She has now made it her mission to help others create more meaning, money and freedom in their life by growing their purpose-driven business on their terms!

  • Jessie shares that when she was starting out in the race car driving world, her mindset was everything. She said she smashed the glass ceiling and owes it all to her mindset. She talks about how she took probably close to 1,000 no’s–and she says that those no’s are a HUGE part of success.
  • She talks about systems, and how important they are. She shares that you have to take care of yourself first before other people, you have to know your strengths and weaknesses, and to really not over-complicate things for yourself.
  • The One Thing Formula: Show up all day for one specific thing. Jessie shares you can’t give 10% to this task, 15% to this task–you need to show up and be all in and completely present in that one thing–whatever you need to get done that day.
  • Jessie’s schedule to stay structured: She shares that she creates separate content calendars. One is for her business and her podcast, one is for her kids activities, and one is for her hospital appointments. She writes it all down, and then blocks it out on her calendar. While she doesn’t block out every single minute, she does write down everything she needs to do.
  • Learn to take control of what you can take control of and let the rest go.
  • Jessie shares that one of the biggest mindset shifts she uses on a daily basis is asking herself who she needs to be.
  • What are the qualities for a million dollar business owner?
    • Knowing and believing in yourself.
    • Be a DO-er not a THINK-er. Take the actions.
  • Jessie’s Three Step Daily RUSH System
    • 1. Plan out your day
