My Secret for Doing It All

I hear from many clients how they’ve taken this business course and are a member of that online community. They’ve spent so much money on materials and resources to help them grow their business. And it’s typically followed up with thoughts about how smart they are and how they should be able to do it on their own.  They’re right about part of it – they are smart. But I want to re-write the programming that you should be able to do it all. And if you’re not, you aren’t measuring up to what it means to be a successful […]

OH NO, I’m Locked Out!

The other day, I was at Trader Joe’s doing our weekly grocery shopping. Even though we’re a household of two humans, the cart was packed with all sorts of goodies, from fresh fruit to frozen vegetables and all the refrigerated items in between. I was so proud because it wasn’t even on my list to go to the grocery store until the weekend, but an unexpected gap in my schedule allowed me to cross this to-do off a day early. Woot! And then it happened.  I wheeled the cart over to my car in the 90 degree heat and click. […]

3 Lessons From Finally Taking a Vacation

I just returned from a glorious weeklong trip throughout the beautiful state of Oregon.  My husband and I celebrated 11 years of marriage with a road trip through one of our favorite places on the planet.  As we were covering hundreds of miles over the coast, valley and city regions, taking in new vistas, feeling the ocean breeze, indulging in yummy vegan fare, relaxing on a balcony overlooking ocean sunsets, I couldn’t help but think of you. No matter how much I try to turn my business brain off, it continues to spark and flicker.  So I turned my thoughts […]

Are Your Expectations in Line with Reality?

You’ve started to make traction in your business, only to stall out.  You’ve told everyone you know about your business.  And continue to put yourself out there to meet new people and get in front of the right people who you know need your special gift.  Yet, you’re unhappy.  It’s sooooo much more time and energy than you expected. And your journey isn’t moving nearly as fast as you thought it would.  Want to know why your business isn’t everything you thought it would be? First, check your expectations.  Are they realistic? Do you want to make $123k in your […]

Problem Solving for When You’re Stumped

There’s a saying that when you’re unhappy or distraught or just plain in a funk, go help someone else. By serving that person, you step outside of yourself and find your happiness again, pulling yourself out of the muck.  The very same principle applies to getting unstuck.  Maybe you aren’t sure why your launch isn’t producing the results you projected.  Or, you can’t see what your next business priority is. Or, a long-term client unexpectedly wraps up with you.  The answer – go solve another problem. Yours or another’s.  I was watching an episode of Game of Thrones, where two […]

Embrace the Darn Boundaries, Already

I talk a lot about adding structure around your time and systems in your operations which sounds restrictive to many people. Because you didn’t create your business to adhere to a schedule and be a slave to technology.  I hear you. I didn’t either.  But…. there’s freedom in the boundaries you set up for yourself in your business.  It’s gloriously liberating to have a routine for your day and always onboard a client in the same way and say “no” to a prospect that isn’t a fit for your work and let go of the underperforming assistant.  Structure gives you […]

7 Practical Steps to Business Magic

A question I get time and again is “how do I build a successful business that I love and that makes me money?”  You’re smart. You’re an action-taker. You don’t back down from a challenge.  And yet, you find yourself at a standstill in your business. You’ve reached a plateau that feels unending.  From working with dozens of clients to build six-figure businesses, I often find that there’s a step in the business building process that’s been overlooked.  It isn’t the same for each person, but there’s usually one part where you told yourself, “yeah, I’ll get back to that […]

Meet You, version 2.0!

At the end of 2017, I felt a niggle on my soul. A quiet whisper that said, “Pssstt, Lindsay, we’re a bit bored. It’s time to grow.” I knew what the voice meant, but truthfully, it scared the pants off of me. Or rather, the Me on the other side of that growth scared the pants off of me. So I talked it out with my coach and she asked, “What’s different about this next version of Lindsay?” I knew almost immediately, “More leadership skills and a better wardrobe.” Whoa, in almost an instant, I was no longer terrified. I […]
