Going Off The Grid

Image | Blog | Blank Image Map Of France

I’m going away next month…

10 full days out of the country.

And, it’s the first time I am leaving the country in 8 years. In 2009 I traveled to Berlin. I didn’t bring my phone… I think I might have hopped on email one time from an internet café.

It’s different now. My business has grown- like mega grown and I’ve got clients who need me, need help, pm me, text me. I have opportunities that I’ve been working on that could come to...

What Not to Say When Someone Asks You What You Do…

Image | Blog | Blank Image Group of People

I attend lots of networking meetings and groups and there is always this cringe time when we are supposed to share what we do. You know – that dreaded elevator pitch and the 30 second commercial. If I had wanted to be in a commercial, I would have moved to Hollywood and auditioned and landed one and made a boat load of money. But alas… that was not my journey… The crazy thing is that most of these ‘introductions’ we are trained to do is prospect and client...

There’s no such thing as Brilliance = Success

Image | Blog | Blank Image Girl Hands on Face

You know what’s the absolute worst? Knowing you are smart but it’s not making a bit of difference in your success as a business owner.

There’s a lot of that going around. In fact, over the years, I’ve coached a number of coaches, therapists and healers who were BRILLIANT. I’ve coached people who have degrees in astrophysics,  graduated law school at the top of their class, were high ranking members of corporations, could do any techy thing on the internet.

Gratefulness, Reflection & Heart Rate

Image | Blog | Blank Image EKG

I have many coaches. They each provide a special kind of support and all together give me multiple perspectives on business, mindset and my personal life.

On Mondays for a year, I’ve been meeting with my friend Sharon. It’s a total of 30 minutes. 15 for her and 15 for me. We lay out our week’s plans and goals, ask a question that will help us move things along and sometimes even have enough time to gab. The specialness about these Mondays is that we always start...

The truth about your website

Image | Blog | Blank Image Computer at Desk

You know what makes me want to scream? My potential clients that tell me that have to create a website, fix the website, scrap their website and start over AND they’ve paid thousands or are willing to pay thousands to get it done.

Because…

They truly believe that someone is going to find it… read all about THEM… and hire them to be their coach.

NEWS FLASH! It doesn’t work that way… ANYMORE…

Here’s why…

There are billions of...

Focus. No Monkeys. Focus.

Image | Blog | Blank Image Animals

Focus. Focus. Do not think about monkeys when you are meditating. Focus. Focus. Monkeys. Why monkeys? No. stop. Focus.

Have you ever meditated? Maybe you have once or twice or you started and stopped or you have a daily practice that works for you. The funny thing about sitting still and doing nothing is that the mind doesn’t like that. The mind likes to think about anything but nothing.

The same for you and your business. You have a few items you’d like to focus on and then your...

Fairy Dust & Marketing Gurus

Image | Blog | Blank Image of Girl and Bird at Sunset

I love my vision board, I love my messages from the Universe, I love my meditation. And… these are the keys to my mood, my strength, my raison d’etre.

In fact, when I sprinkle these all over my marketing materials, it’s like the most potent fairy dust around and all the messages I send out sparkle like Glinda’s Fairy Wand.

Secret…

Figure out your marketing style and then put your own dose of fairy dust on top…

And you...

When it’s only about the money…

Image | Blog | Image of Stacked Money

You are on a client enrollment call and you make the offer.  It’s been a draining, difficult and NOT FUN call.

And you know that… deep down in your gut.

You are thinking to yourself… “I really don’t want to work with this person. They are draining. They’ve already made 10 demands on me and we haven’t even started.

My intuition is screaming at me…

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!.

BUT… you take their credit card, book their first session....

When Something Happens…

Image | Blog | Blank Image of Girl Hands on Face

So you’ve signed up for a program and you were all in and now you aren’t.

Kind of like when you signed up for the gym, or yoga classes, or a diet… You start out all gung ho…and then something HAPPENS.

You lose your why.
You lose your vision.
You lose your way.
You make excuses.
You get angry at yourself.
You get angry at others.
You act out.
You hide.

So not cool.

You are a victim.
I can call you that because I’ve been one, too.

Because the thing is… it’s...

Everything changes now if you say so…

Image | Blog | Blank Image Girl Climbing Wall

We all have dreams. Sometimes we allow those to come to fruition and sometimes they get tossed under the rug.

You may love, love, love your job, career or business.
You may be head over heels in love with your family life.
You may be experiencing your best life ever and living to your full potential.

Or…

You may be counting the days until the weekend, your next vacation or your retirement.

You may feel your life slipping past you and you never made that big impact you...
