What You Will Learn In This Episode
In this episode, Connie Benjamin shares her story of when she realized that she was about to lose everything she loved if she did not change. Connie tells the story of when she was a stressed-out entrepreneur and the defining moment that made her realize she needed to make a change. Connie shares how she created this podcast to support women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to live their purpose, increase profit & create loving and passionate relationships.
Why I Created This Podcast
I know there is power in stories. When we hear stories of other people going through something challenging and coming out okay, we start to think that maybe we are going to be okay too. Stories stretch our understanding of what is possible, of what we can create with our lives, of who we can become. Stories change us, inspire us, form us, and help us become greater than we were before we heard the story. At least the right kind of stories can create these incredible transformations within us.
I know that is true because I have been changed by the stories I am about to share with you in this podcast. I created My Fire Within Radio because I am a “mommapreneu”” who wants to make a difference through my work and I want to have an awesome family. I am a woman who has been the ups and downs of life and have searched for answers of how to find peace in the storms of life, how to live my purpose even though it is scary, and how to connect with the people I love most while I do it. I felt like there needed to be a place where we could talk with other women and learn from their expertise in the area of life that they rock at. A place where we could talk about the times they felt like giving up and didn’t know how they would make it through. A place where they could share what works for them with juggling their business, their family, and the chaos of life! I wanted to have, real and raw conversations that would help other women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to live their purpose, increase their profits, and create loving passionate relationships!
I knew that if we could just talk with other women, and hear their stories that we would all be lifted and strengthened. And you know what? I was right. I really truly saying that with no pride but rather with my heart filled with gratitude for the stories that have been shared here. They truly have been a gift in my life and I am so excited that I get to share it with you.
As you are listening to their stories, I encourage you to look for the lessons that the universe is trying to teach you through their stories. I know I have learned so many lessons from them! I encourage you to keep moving towards your dreams and living your purpose. I encourage you to keep creating passionate and loving relationships and keep moving towards who you are meant to be.
I am so excited to be on this journey with you! I would love to hear your lessons as you listen to the interviews!
Who is Connie Benjamin?
Connie Benjamin is an international speaker and author of the upcoming book Women With Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, and Passion. She is also the host of My Fire Within Radio. After sharing her message from the stage with thousands of people, she realized women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to make a difference in the world through their work without losing their family, or their sanity needed a book to guide them in how to do it.
Connie discovered it was possible to have it all, at the right time, and in the right order, after she learned about Higher Laws principles. Now, she dedicates her time to sharing her knowledge with female self-starters to help them improve their lives. These principles helped Connie restore her marriage from feeling disconnected to being better than the day she and her husband Andy were married! These principles also helped her replace her day job income as she found renewed love in being a stay-at-home mom with her three daughters, and recovered her health.
Connie knows how essential it is to give back, so she is donating all the profits from the first edition of her book Women With Fire to charity to help families in developing countries access clean water.

Question & Answer
So I always ask my guests to answer these questions and when I was asked to create this blog I wasn’t going to answer them myself. Then I realized that would be a little on the lazy side of the line…so here you go! My real and raw answers to the questions I ask all my guests 🙂
What is 1 thing you believe every woman entrepreneur should know
You are enough. You are meant to do great things and you have a purpose in this life. It won’t be easy but it will always be worth it.
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge or felt like giving up?
When I was writing my book Women with Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit & Passion! I felt like giving up because I didn’t feel like I was “enough” to write the book.
How did you overcome this?
I kept writing even though…even though I felt like I wasn’t a “writer”, even though I felt like I didn’t have enough time, even though the voice in my head was saying “who is even going to read this?” I did it anyway.
What did you learn from it
I learned that when we take action in faith, the universe helps us become more than we can be on our own.
What is the one area of life or business you have expertise in?
I believe really strongly that women can have everything we want in life if we do it in the right order, at the right time, and in priority. I love teaching women how to live their purpose in a way that fits their season of life
I think one thing that will make all the difference is please…please stop comparing yourself to other women. I know it is hard but I truly believe that comparison prevents us from honoring each other and ourselves. If you want to compare yourself to someone, compare yourself to who you were yesterday and strive to be a little better today.
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way?
You don’t need to be perfect. Failure is required to do big things.
Please tell me about your family.
I am the proud mamma of 3 incredible girls! My girls are 11, 5, & 3 years old. I get to stay home with them and work part-time
What is one of the biggest challenges you have faced with balancing work, family, and taking care of yourself?
Understanding that balance as traditionally defined does not exist! Realizing that true balance is about priorities and real moments.
What did you learn from this challenge?
That I can find true balance…it is messy…and imperfect. As long as at some point in the day my kids feel totally loved, I passionately kiss my husband, and I am taking steps towards what I feel called to do, life is good.
What helps you balance these roles now?
Honestly the 6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, & Passion that I learned from my mentor Brandon
What is one resource that you love (a book, app, service)?
Oh my gosh so many!! For relationships, my favorite book is Love Sense. For Business, my favorite book is Expert Secrets. For feeling good as a mamma, my favorite book is How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk. My favorite book about being a woman is Girl Wash Your Face.
If you have written books or have a blog, what are the titles and where can I find them?
I have an upcoming book called Women with Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit & Passion. It is available for pre-sale at www.womenwithfire.com
