No Hard Feelings – 3 Ways to Release Negative Energy and Move Forward

When was the last time you got really angry?  Was your heart beating fast?  Did you feel like you wanted to explode?  Were you upset with another person, or just a situation in general?  How did you react?  More importantly, were you satisfied with your reaction to the circumstance a day later? I’ve always been a pretty calm person for about 95% of the time.  Prior to becoming a coach and running my own business, if you caught me at an angry moment (during that 5% of the time), it would’ve been best to move out of the way. 🙂  I was a very...

You’ll Lose Friends…The Ugly/Beautiful Truth About Creating Success

Take a moment to think about how long you’ve had some of your closest friends.  Are they from childhood, college, or did you meet them at work?  Friends usually make up a large part of your support system.  They are there to listen, help you solve problems, and have a good time with.  Some people spend more time with their friends than their family members.  What do friendships mean to you?  How important are they?  Whether you place a high value on friendships or not, everyone needs support. When I started my journey creating success in my...

10 Ways to Grow Your Business Faster

A common thing I hear from new and more established entrepreneurs, is that they want to see more growth in their business.   Growth can mean different things to different people.  For most of the clients I’ve worked with, growth includes getting more clients, having a consistent flow of prospects, getting more referral partnerships, and making more money.  What would success look like in your business? One of my favorite quotes is that “success leaves clues.”  When I think about all of the business owners I know who are reaching their goals,...

Think you don’t need help?  3 Tips to Overcoming Invincible Syndrome & Creating Success!

Can you ask for help?  Or do you think it’s a sign of weakness or ignorance?  Most people are taught not to ask for help or to do so sparingly.  What’s crazy about that is the most successful people in their careers or business are NOT doing everything themselves!  They are seeking counsel and employing others to do a lot of the work for them.  Trying to go it alone is stressful, difficult, and usually one of the experiences that causes people to quit on their dreams.  A lot of new business owners develop what I call Invincible Syndrome.  I...

I can’t afford it!  3 Ways to Find the Money to Fund Your Dreams

When was the last time you said, “I can’t afford it”?  Were you thinking of buying new clothes, shoes, or dining at a nice restaurant?  How did you feel at that moment?  Not being able to afford something you really want is one of the most disempowering situations you can experience.  It’s as if there is nothing you can do about it.  For most people, money is an obstacle or an excuse.  I speak with people all the time about things they want to do like leave a job, start a business, or work with a coach.  When it comes down to taking action to...

5 Things Successful New Business Owners Know

Starting a business can be scary!  Leaving the comfort of a steady paycheck, set job description, and 9-5 hours for the unknown is frightening for a lot of people.  Even if they don’t love their job, most professionals don’t take the leap into entrepreneurship out of fear.  I understand this and truly believe that being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone.  If you aren’t open minded and willing to take risks, staying in a job could be ideal for you.  There is nothing wrong with that!  Life isn’t a one-size fits all t-shirt. I’ve worked with a...

10 Secrets to Moving Through Transitions…Faster!

Have you noticed that most people are in a state of flux?  Looking for another job, moving to a new place, or starting a business are some common examples.  Change is happening all around us, and considering ways to proactively plan for success is one of the smartest things you can do.  Moving through transitions used to be very hard for me.  I love routines (it may sound silly I know) and I didn’t like monkey wrenches being thrown in my plans.  But as I got older, I learned that resisting or trying to control...

You’ve just shared your big goal or new idea and then, bam!  Someone says, “You can’t do that!”  This person then talks about you not having the skill, time, money, or experience to be successful.  After informing you of their reasoning, they proceed to tell you that they are a “realist” just looking out for your benefit.  Pessimist– a person who habitually sees or anticipates the worst or is disposed to be gloomy Realist– a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are One of the biggest obstacles I see clients...
