Feel Like You’ve Living on Zoom Even More Lately?

As an online business owner, you probably consider yourself a virtual meeting expert.  Knowing the ins and outs of what to do and when and how in all situations.  Lately, as we’ve started to unpause our lives – business, school, conferences, weddings, you name it – the level of time we’re spending on video call and meeting platforms seems to be creeping up A LOT. That networking event you used to attend monthly? Well, it isn’t cancelled; it’s been moved online.  The wedding you were invited to? It’s being streamed on YouTube.  Sunday night dinner with your extended family is […]

Do THIS in Your Business Right Now Instead

Last time, we talked about Control and how it’s definitely one concept you want to immediately ditch in your business. Not just for right now, given current world events, but forever.  Because control is an illusion, one that tricks you into thinking you can 100% predict an outcome.  And the funny thing that comes along with that trickery is that we fool ourselves into expecting that exact, specific result.  We allow no room for flexibility or wonder or being taken down a different, more inviting path.  Please stop. Give up the need to control it all.  And let’s talk about […]

1 Thing to Ditch in Your Biz Right Now (and Forever)

I’m just going to say it AGAIN and I know most other people, brands, and companies are saying it, too – there’s a lot that’s uncertain in our lives this moment: What’s going to happen over the coming weeks and months? How’s our world going to shift? What changes will come out of this to accommodate a new level of normal? What will we actually settle into? And what will my hair look like when I get to the salon next? We’re all in new normals right now with us not being able to go out whenever and wherever we […]

Just Say NO

I’m getting straight to the point today.  Because I’m a straight shooter and you know I like to tell it straight up in a no-nonsense way. The reason you’re constantly running yourself ragged, plowing through one unfilling project after the next and sitting in countless snooze-fests, also known as meetings, is because you’re not doing it right.  The “it” I’m referring to is your ability to say “No.” You’re so preoccupied with what other people might think if you turn down that seemingly fabulous invitation.  Or overly concerning yourself of what others are doing and if they’re doing IGTV, so […]

Why Are You Here?

On a regular basis, women ask me, what do they need to do to achieve their goals?  These women are smart and fierce and savvy. They aren’t looking for a one-and-done solution or quick fix. They know that won’t stick.  Yet, they understand that there are key actions you can take to create the results you want faster and with more ease.  So I ask, “Are you acting as if?” It sounds simple and almost childish (or maybe it’s just me – the phrase “as if” was all over the place during my tween years).  But truly, do you… Act […]

Oh Fudge, There’s Only 1 Month Left in the Year!

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you.  And no, you didn’t sleep through a few weeks of the month.  For my team and I, we really have only one month left in our year.  You see, we’re shutting down for the entire week of Thanksgiving and then again during the last two weeks of the year.  So we only have four weeks left to wrap up this year with a bow. When I realized that, I admit, light panic set in. A clenching of my chest.  Holy smokes, there’s some much left to do – newsletters, social media posts, gifts for […]

Do You Approach Your Team with a Growth Mindset?

I have a confession – I used to think I was “bad” with people. For years, I told myself that people didn’t like me because I didn’t know how to talk with them and didn’t understand how to be a good teammate to them.  And for all those years, it kept me safe. And at a distance. And deeply unhappy and unfulfilled.  On my work teams, I’d seek out any and every opportunity to perform my work independently.  I’d remain silent in meetings.  I blamed others for my dissatisfaction.  And it caused huge fractures on my work teams.  I heard […]
