Let’s have a little fun and compare business to dating! You might be surprised how many similarities there are. I talk about blind dates, giving it all away too quick, rushing to get a commitment, and even when to break up. Over the years, I often make comparisons to dating with my coaching clients because when you can make it personal, you make it real. Enjoy this light-hearted and helpful episode! (more…)

Encouraging someone when they’ve hit a wall and are frustrated is, of course, a good thing. Reminding them that it’s “always darkest before the dawn” and “change is right around the corner” is also helpful. But there are times these encouraging words just aren’t enough. When someone is brutally honest and says, “I know. But I’ve been here so many times.” They are tired of the cycle. We all know that cycle. We hit a wall, we pick ourselves up, only to find ourselves at that same frustrating point later on. In this episode, I offer a strategy on how to break through the breakthrough problem once and for all. (more…)
I was asked recently what I thought the #1 thing was that people needed to know that would make the biggest difference in their business and life. That’s no easy question to answer! It was a case of knowing the answer but not having the words to describe it. I’ve given it a lot of thought so that I could not only answer the question but actually offer you something to do with it. An understanding of the concept and ideas on how to make something of it. So here it is. What I believe is the #1 thing that will make a difference in your business and life. (more…)
Do you know that feeling when you hear something exactly when you needed to hear it? Feels great, right? While it often feels like a coincidence, doesn’t it make you wonder if it is? I’m a believer in collective consciousness– that there is a constant stream of consciousness. That usually, our thoughts are not unique and it may be that we are picking up on the collective. The benefit to you as an entrepreneur in knowing this is, imagine how great you can make people feel if you show up in their lives with your marketing ideas and with your meaningful message at just the right time. By listening, you can show exceptional timing. (more…)
Newton’s law of motion says that something in motion stays in motion. Using that theory, I stress the importance of taking advantage of this busy time of year to plan out next year. I offer you my top 7 habits to bring the current year to a close. You’ll see that this is the perfect time to plan out next year so that you can hit the ground running. If you wait until after the New Year, you may lose weeks, maybe even months before you get up and going. No need for that! You have too much to accomplish! Invest a little time now and save plenty of time later. (more…)
You know jet lag, right? Your body needs time to catch up to the time difference. In this episode, I discuss the lag time between being ready for the results you want and the results showing up. Whether its changes in your business or personal growth, it can be very frustrating when you’re all ready but the world doesn’t seem to recognize that yet. It’s like heading out on a 3 hour road trip that now seems like it takes all day. Similarly, you’ve done all the right things and are ready to receive the success you deserve. And for some period of time, you’re left wondering, are we there yet? (more…)
This past week in the U.S. has shook many people to their core. There are many people who can’t understand why. Name calling, lack of compassion…all sorts of ugliness going on. It’s like watching your children fight and sometimes you know what’s best is to send everyone to a separate corner. Maybe that’s what’s needed here. Everyone just focus on their corner of the world. Create the world you want. Throughout history, creativity has played an important role in tumultuous times like these. I suspect, hope, that through our unique individuality creative solutions can present themselves. That important art can be created to record the time. That transformative thinkers can be leaders. Time will tell. But I have no doubt, creativity will play an important role. (more…)
I’m certainly not immune to having moments of lacking confidence. Are any of us? I guess there are some that are confident all the time. In this episode, I discuss that often confidence gets thrown into one big bucket of “less than” rather than getting to the root of what you’re not feeling confident about. Lacking confidence comes in many different forms. I go over the 3 Whys exercise to help you get to the root of your struggle with confidence. (more…)
