Work it! Your mind that is.

Your mind is a wondrous part of you. It’s what gives humans the ability to feel and think and learn and evolve.  And your brain space is infinite. Truly, the only finite part of our lives is time.  But the kicker is that we aren’t just born being able to tap into that mental infinity.  When we’re little, the imagination our minds can conjure up seems to know no bounds.  At some point, we learn to tamp that down. To close off creative thinking and just “go with the flow”.  Which ends up doing us a massive disservice because it […]

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?

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 […]

Is Your Brain Keeping You Small (and From Success)?

Our brains are hardwired for connection, according to Brené Brown. It isn’t only connection to one another that we crave, it’s connection of the puzzle pieces of life that we see in front of us. And in the absence of perfect data (which is always the case), we look for patterns in our past experiences and make up stories to fill in the gaps and bridge those connections. Unfortunately, our stories are being written in a nanosecond by our amygdala. This is the part of our brain that wants to keep us safe. When you run a business, safety looks […]
