7 Things I Know + LOVE About You

When I step back to think about it, I’m able to work with virtually any business that has an online presence. I’ve never met a project I didn’t deliver on. Or a piece of tech I couldn’t understand. Or a subject I couldn’t deeply know. And yet, I keep returning to the world of coaches again and again. I just love it here with you! Here’s why… You’re driven to spread goodness in the world. Your passion fuels you each day, even when you don’t feel like it. You give all of yourself to your clients because that’s the only […]

Don’t Drop the Ball this Holiday Season: 5 Tips to Thoughtfully Slow Down

The year-end hustle and bustle is upon us. As much as I’d like to keep all things pushing forward at full steam, this time of year is when I take a pause. It’s a practice I’ve been cultivating for the better part of a decade. I remember how uncomfortable it felt at first to approach the holidays with a slow-paced mindset. To not put in the extra hours in my job, then in my business. To not go to three family gatherings in two days. To not get stressed out by all that I might be missing out on. I thought […]

This Game-Changing Idea was a Total Shock to Me

As we wrap-up the year and reflect on the past {almost} 365 days, I wanted share gratitude for you and also a tip… One thing I’ve learned about running my business is that it’s 20% action-taking and the actual doing of business and 80% mindset. This was quite a shock to me. I was so sure it’d be the other way around.  But as I’ve learned to get quiet and listen to my mind, things have started to click into place. Not just in my business, but all around me.  Today and this week and hopefully almost every day of […]

Planning for the Unplannable

The recent events in Texas are devastating. I have friends and clients in the Houston area. People that are affected by the flooding. They’re living in hotels. They’re spending their days ripping apart their homes to prepare for the restoration process. Helicopter rescues have taken place only 2 blocks away. I was on a call with one of those very lovely people this week. As we talked, the discussion steered towards the larger idea of continuity within our businesses when large-scale events, like hurricanes and flooding, divorce and illness, happen. What do we do as small business owners? We still […]

Losing clients? Make sure you’re not skipping this SUPER SIMPLE step

I was thinking about you recently because I’ve been having some customer service issues with a local business. This business provides a hybrid product and service, which I know so many of you do. You have your 1:1 service, but then there’s usually some sort of deliverable that goes along – a website, workbook, training manual. You think that the only thing that matters is the deliverable. After all, that’s what you’re being paid to provide. I’m here to say that you’re wrong. There’s many people out there that likely do what you do in a broad sense. Other developers […]

Comparison, Storytelling, and Age Guessing – a WDS Recap

Did I mention I was recently at World Domination Summit? It was four and a half days filled with motivation, inspiration, connecting with others and myself, feelings of abundance and not-enoughness. This year’s theme was ‘Build a better world’ and the slogan, Team Everybody. I love how we can apply that on a global level and work to create a better planet full of beautiful, kind people who inhabit it. But it can also be used on a more micro level, within businesses, organizations, even a peer-to-peer group. Here’s some nuggets of wisdom I learned during WDS 2017: The two […]

S#!T… you’ll never know it all and that’s totally OKAY

I once said, “as an entrepreneur, you never know everything” and I’m about to be smacked in the face with that thought multiple times over. Because next week, I’m off to Portland for the annual World Domination Summit. It’s a gathering of wonderful people who are seeking to live a remarkable life in a conventional world. Sounds inspiring, right? I’m not going to lie or be modest, it is! Totally mind-blowing! Each year I leave with a heart full of gratitude and dozens of insights and ideas for my business and life. New goals to go after, ways to live […]

Good news – it’s not YOU, it’s ME

The other day, a fellow entrepreneur, Ashley, was worried about a client of hers. Her worry was that she wasn’t delivering for this particular client. You see, the client had recently told her that she no longer wanted Ashley to have full independence to complete tasks and projects when working within her business. Ashley had been going above and beyond to over deliver for this client over the past few months to meet several tight deadlines. And she hit every one of them. I was surprised too, as just two weeks earlier, my friend was over the moon because this […]
