Just Use the Good Crystal Already!

When David Neagle kicked off his Breaking Free Live Experience (BFLE), I was so happy to be a part of it! I got to go on stage to share my success and I love showing others what is possible for them :)

6 Steps to Thriving Over the Holidays

How can we have an enjoyable Christmas if we aren't coming from a positive place? If we don't take care of ourselves, especially when we're busy, we will end up feeling run down and stressed. If we take regular breaks, we will recharge our batteries, feel better and have more to give to the people we care about. This is probably the best gift you can give this holiday season.

How to Create a Killer Environment!

This is a bit of a play on words, because I’m using “killer” in the sense of create an awesome environment that is supportive of your success BUT it is also about “letting go” of what is not working.

Having a supportive environment that enables you to thrive is a HUGE part of achieving the success level you desire. Think of how much better you did as a child, when you were encouraged and shown love. Think of a plant that grows and thrives as result of being watered and cared for. It’s the same thing.

"Your Success Depends on LOVE"

Speaking at the SUCCESS Summit Dallas with Today's Innovative Woman was a wonderful opportunity.

 

This is one of the many wonderful opportunities that have come my way through personal growth and abundant thinking. I'm at a place in my life where everything I’ve been studying and learning through amazing books and mentors is finally making sense. I think I finally get “it” - and I'm so thankful for the lessons and the opportunities.

My take on success is that it really comes down to love. That’s right, L-O-V-E :)

Big, Bold and Crazy!

This is how I have been thinking about my hair lately. It’s long, it’s curly, it’s big and it’s CRAZY! While I was at the exercise club the other day, a guy passing me in the hallway blurted out, “I love your hair! It’s so fun!” I thought, “damn right, it is fun!”

Are You Working Overtime?

Do you find that you are working late hours throughout the week & even some weekends? Is this the way you envisioned how you would run your own business? My guess is no and that you were probably dreaming of a lot more FREEDOM!

“Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable”

I am loving the cool weather change we’ve been having! I know I can’t complain about all of the sunshine here, but it has been nice to throw on a sweater in the mornings :) It makes me feel like there is a bit of a season change too.

How to Run a Profitable Business with Ease

Another dream came true for me this week – I became a published author! I wanted to write a book for a while now and this was such a fun way to do it. What I’m realizing is at first, all of these dreams seem so far away and it’s exciting to think about them. Then, as they start to come to fruition, it’s very calming and natural. The external excitement of others celebrating and congratulating me was much more rewarding then any internal excitement I felt. The calm and ease going on inside of me is a wonderful, refreshing place to be.

Are Your Ducks in a Row?

I had such an amazing time speaking on accountability for David Fagan’s group over at the Icon Builder. Attending events is awesome, but I’ve seen all too often business owners who head back to their office with the best intentions on implementing and end up doing nothing. Think about how you can hold yourself accountable, and what needs to change in your environment to set you up for success?

Is Your Money Mindset Keeping You Stuck?

I’ve been noticing a lot of interesting comments lately about money. It’s remarkable to me how people say they want to do big things, like travel and spend more time with their kids, but in the same breath they also say they want to do work that is fulfilling and it’s not about the money. Scroll down to read my article today about how these beliefs are actually keeping you stuck from moving forward in your business – and life.

4 Steps to Get Un-Stuck

If you’re feeling overwhelmed in your business, you’re likely also procrastinating. When we feel inundated with our to-dos, it’s easy to stop, retreat and avoid doing anything all together. It’s similar to the person who is going to start exercising at a gym and sets a lofty goal of going 5 times a week. This person is setting himself or herself up for failure from the get-go. What tends to happen is that going 5 times a week is too much of an adjustment and becomes overwhelming. In turn, they won’t end up going at all. This is also what happens when we feel overwhelmed in our business. We spin our wheels and spend time on anything but revenue-generating activities.

The following will help you get “un-stuck” and move forward so that you can grow your business to the level you want it to be.

The Value of a Hand Written Note

In today’s day and age, communication has been completely taken over by technology. We are so inundated by email and texts that the value of receiving a note from someone in this format has lost its novelty. Do you really like receiving a birthday or thank-you note by email? Sure it’s nice to know someone is thinking about you, but isn’t it much more personal to receive a handwritten note? This came up in my mastermind meeting the other day. When someone takes the time to write and mail you a hand written note, it really means a lot more.

What Is Stopping You?

Today and yesterday, I have been fortunate to connect with some heart-centered business owners in Marina Del Rey. The most amazing part though, is that I was in the same hotel only 4 years before for a mastermind meeting. I traveled from Canada to get there, and brought my newborn baby and Mom to help me take care of her. I was dreaming about living in California, and trying hard to make it a reality. I was willing to do whatever it took. I remember running up to the room every few hours to either pump or feed Ella.

So you can do it alone, right?

Ready to take on the world!

How many of you feel this way in your business? That you can tackle this beast of building a business on your own? That you've got this? I read an article this week that talks about the complete opposite and how some entrepreneurs even commit suicide. Not good. Read on for more info. on this topic.

"So you can do it alone, right?"

I am amazed at how many entrepreneurs think they can do this alone. Grow their businesses, that is. I was just reading an article earlier this week that talks about how common depression is amongst entrepreneurs. This is due to the fact that they measure their self-worth by their business results. It’s also due to no one talking about the reality of what’s going on. Many feel alone and think they have no one to turn to. If they admit they are sinking, they will appear as failing.

I remember when I first started my business; my friends would ask me how many clients I had. I’m still not sure what that was about. Were they jealous and hoping I was failing? Were they just nosy? Was this a way to be supportive? I’m not sure how that would have been the case to be honest. The more I think about it, none of my best friends ever asked this, so I think I have my answer.

How Inspiration Leads to Success

When we’re inspired, we can truly create anything. It literally changes our perspective from a glass half empty to a glass half full. We are inspired to dream big and do big! Life is exciting! We feel unstoppable – like we can change the world. It’s these feelings that fuel us forward. It’s this inspiration that drives us to achieve big goals and do great things. It’s in this place that we need to stay and operate from.

Success Depends on Your Follow-up Plan

These simple steps will help you implement a follow-up system that you can start implementing now.

When you know you’re going to a function, make sure you schedule in time the next morning to follow up with the people you met/interacted with there. For example, when I go to a networking event, I make time the next morning to send emails and make connections on Facebook with anyone I connected with. It’s important to do this right away while you’re still fresh in the person’s mind. If you’re hoping to meet with someone in-person, i.e. for a lunch or coffee, it’s best to reach out right away to increase the chances of making that happen.

Find Out What Is Stopping You From Moving Forward

I’ve been reading a really great book on mindset. It’s called “Mindset – The New Psychology of Success” by Carol S. Dweck. She outlines how people have two types of mindsets, a fixed or growth mindset. What’s fascinating is the people with the “fixed” mindset feel that being perfect equals success. They are so pre-occupied with it, they miss the chance to grow and actually be successful. In essence they get in their own way, and stay stuck while trying to reach perfection. The people with the “growth” mindset see success as a process by which they are continuously learning new things. Success to them is a journey and not measured every step of the way. These people take action and move forward.
Think about it for a second. If you’re constantly trying to be perfect in everything you do, really what you’re doing is holding yourself back from moving forward. You likely care A LOT about what others think. If this is the case, every single decision you make is based on what others might think of you. Think of your sales calls for example. If you’re on a call with a potential client and you’re more concerned with what that person thinks of you rather than how you can help them, you’re sunk! You won’t be able to properly convey to them how you can help them and what you can do for them. Instead you’re analyzing your every move for fear of being judged. This is limiting your success and business growth. It is likely showing up in all areas of your life too.

4 Tips for Being Authentic in Your Business

Thought Leader Blog Post
I had the opportunity to sit down with a few people who are really rocking it in their businesses! Think multiple seven figures. What happened, though, is that not once did these particular people take a real interest in my business and vision for the future. They either did a big “product dump” on me – meaning they talked about the features of their service – or they just assumed they knew what was best for me and my business without really asking about my bigger vision. This was very disheartening – as especially those of you who have worked with me personally and who have been introduced to a compassionate way of doing sales will understand. It’s really not about doing something “to” someone; it’s about doing something “for” someone. In this situation, I definitely felt like they were doing something “to” me. It was disappointing to say the least.
 
These encounters have made me proud of the way I do business and also of the fact that I actually care about the people I interact with – whether they sign up to work with me or not. Our businesses are about what we can do for people not what we’re trying to get from them. Sure, we all have our own financial goals, but it’s really about providing an amazing service or product for someone to help them in some way, shape or form.  It’s about making a difference in other people’s lives.

Are You A Giver Or A Taker?

Thought Leader Blog Post

If you’re only focused on what you can “get” from someone else, they will feel this and be repelled by you. Maybe a little harsh, but true. We’ve all had that encounter with an icky sales person, who isn’t listening to us, and just wants to “sell” us something. We can’t get away from them fast enough – right? The problem is that even though they might have a great product or service that we want to buy, if they’re not listening to us and are “product dumping” on us, it’s a turn-off.
 
On the other hand, when someone approaches us with the intention of how they can help us, and they ask us questions about it, we are much more open to talking to them and learning more about them.
