Reject rejection

Image | Blog | Blank Image Woman Throwing Arms Up

You just got rejected. You made an offer to a prospect and they turned you down.

They said…

  • Can’t afford it..
  • I’m too busy…
  • Need to ask my…
  • Need to check my finances…
  • I’m not buying anything else…
  • I have to sell my house first…

So what are you going to do? I’ve been coaching for over 15 years. I’ve hear all of these and more. And guess what?

It’s OKAY. For ME. 

I’ll tell you why.

Two tiny words

Image | Blog | Blank Image Thank You

Have you ever noticed when you have said thank you to someone, they light up?

First the smile…

Then the recognition… (Who me? Are you talking to me?)

When you say it to someone and really mean it…what does that do for you?

Those two tiny words hold so much LOVE. 

Practice saying thank you for what you have. 

Thank you for what you don’t have, and thank you to others. 

You can even say thank you for those painful, hard times, the ones that you thought...

Relationship is EVERYTHING

Image | Blog | Blank Image Susan, Michael etc FRANCE

I know I’ve probably said this before in some other way, but I really can’t say it enough and in enough ways to stress how crucial this is to anything you do in your biz…

Relationship is EVERYTHING. It is the most important business building tool you have.

If you don’t have relationships that are building and blossoming and allowing you to connect, it will not matter how good your website is or how good your emails are…

If you are connecting to your clients and...

Taking a break is vital to business

Image | Blog | Blank Image Susan & Michael In France

As you know, I’m away right now and it’s the first real vacation I’ve taken in years. I’m getting to spend time with my husband and close friends and I’m enjoying that I get to explore and just be and take in the sights of France. I seriously don’t know why I waited so long to do this. It is the best thing I could’ve done for myself and my business.

Being away gives me the space to be me again and to be able to come back fully refreshed and ready to...

Taking imperfect action…

Image | Blog | Blank Image Computer & Papers

I know so many coaches who put off taking action because they think it needs to be perfect…that’s a big mistake because there is no such thing as perfect. And waiting for perfect may keep you from ever putting yourself out there.

Yes, make it the best you know how.
Yes, put care into your creations.

But don’t sit on it until you make a few extra changes…or wait until your best friend gives you her opinion.

Don’t keep looking for the perfect graphic to go with...

Should you create webinars, online programs, or a group coaching program?

Image | Blog | Blank Image Smiley Faces

The truth is that creating a group coaching program has little if no investment.

Here’s what you need…

  • A zoom account (this is your only cost $15 per month)
  • A closed FB group for them to connect in between the calls (and you can store the replays, documents, etc. there as well for your membership)
  • An email invitation
  • Friends on FB or LinkedIn

You will make lots of money month after month and have a huge impact on lots of people.

  • On the other hand doing a webinar, you’ll...

How having an event gets you closer to your ideal client

Image | CBM LIVE | Pilot | Best Kept Secret for Growing and Scaling Your Biz

Since January, I’ve been planning a live event that’s happening in early June. I want to fill it. My goal is to have 70 attendees who want to attend and learn from me for 3 days. It’s an undertaking. It’s all consuming. It’s a full time job. It takes focus. And it has literally forced me to get BRAVE, get OUT THERE and talk to EVERYONE.

Since January, I’ve been to at least one Networking Event and often 2 per week. I’ve spoken to hundreds of coaches,...

Difficult Conversations…don’t have to BE

Image | Blog | Blank Image Of Minions

You want to say it. You rehearse it in your head for days. You push it away. AGAIN.
And then…you have another terrible experience and the pressure starts mounting. You can feel it in your chest and in your heart. It’s consuming you…literally eating you UP. By the time you are ready to have this DIFFICULT CONVERSATION…it isn’t DIFFICULT anymore. It’s now a MOUNTAIN, like Everest or a marathon with an obstacle course…or even like jumping off the...

What YOU are focusing on may not be what needs your attention

Are you wondering why you can’t figure out how have a successful coaching biz?
It might be because you are focusing on actions that won’t give you an ROI.

• Bells and Whistles Web Site
• $1000 head shots
• Branding
• Lead Gen Programs
• Expensive enrollment trainings
• More certifications

What YOU do need:

• A way to engage prospects on social media
• A way to...

Being different isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be

Image | Blog | Blank Image Tea & Twizzler

A few years ago, I had a conversation with my business coach.

Me: So I’m thinking I want to do something REALLY different.
My Coach: What were you thinking? Me: I don’t know, but I want to stand out and be recognized.
My Coach: Being different isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be.
Me: Why?
My Coach: Because striking out with a new idea could be a disaster. People might not want it, they might not get you, you might not sell anything. Basically, if something is working out...
