My goal for this series is to help you become aware of where you might be stopping yourself from going for your dreams and desires. By bringing that awareness up so that you can see, “Gosh, I am doing that and I would really rather not. I'd rather choose something else.”Read More
Researchers tell us that human beings think about 60,000 thoughts a day, and about 80% of them are “negative”. That means almost 40,000 negative thoughts per day are dripping through your system — your mind, your body, your emotions, and your spiritual self. Most of those thoughts are judging thoughts.Read More
Some of the most successful business owners I know communicate with their business regularly.
Do you wonder why they do that and how?
What the business people who talk to their business tell me is that their business is an entity with intelligence and desires of its own. When they communicate with and listen to their business, they get new ideas and perspectives they would not have gotten without asking.Read More
Here’s your next step to create a clear and compelling message for your business.
Before you even start taking any of these steps, you want to think about what the people you serve want. What do they want – not what they need?Read More
Recently a friend whom I hadn’t seen in years said to me, “I’ve been reading your emails and something has changed recently. I am now feeling drawn into what you are writing. What has changed?”Read More
If you are on Facebook, you’ve likely seen the many “Me too” posts shared there – to date there have been 1,400,000 of them. The point of these posts is to focus attention on how much sexual harassment, assault, and abuse women experience. Each post makes my heart ache. And when a beloved younger relative posted, “Me too”, I cried.Read More
What was your response to the US Presidential Election on November 8th? Were you elated that people had voted for change? Were you shocked that Trump won? Did you feel fear, uncertainty, or anger? Whatever your response, you know that change is afoot for us all. And your response may still be reverberating through your body and spirit.Read More
“What Crystal Ball are you talking about?!?”, you say. That Crystal Ball that you consult before, during, and after you talk to someone about working with you. You know, the one that says, “She probably won’t want to work with me”, before you talk to a prospective client.Read More
Last week on a Facebook group, someone posted a link to a blog post by Mike Hrostoski called “F*** You Spiritual People for Using Gratitude as a Bypass to Your Anger”. I'll not give you the whole link because I don't want to offend anyone by cussing here, but if you want to read all of Mike’s rant, fill in the blank letters and you'll find it online here. The title shocked me so of course I checked it out. Mike really got his rant on and as I read his post, I felt a resonance with what he was saying. He expressed what had been niggling in the back of my mind, but wouldn't let myself admit.Read More
I was talking with a prospective client the other day. I'll call her Alice (not her real name). I've known her for years, and we were talking because she is at a new beginning in her business. She's a brilliant businesswoman and has been quite successful in the past. Because of family events, she had to step out of her business for a while and now is ready to get back to work. As we got into our conversation, Alice revealed her main concern was that "everything has changed." Many of her contacts have been down-sized, right-sized, or “put out to pasture”, and her former network is no longer in a position to hire her for consulting work.. Because of the advent of Linked In and other social media outlets, this very bright and capable woman was thinking she didn't know how to get traction to get new work.Read More
