What do you do when giving up isn’t an option? — June 19, 2015

What do you do when giving up isn’t an option?

As an entrepreneur, I know what it is like to be doing something I am incredibly passionate about. I love the feeling of being in the zone, working with my clients, helping them to uncover their gifts and talents. I know it is what I was born to do.

I also know about the stresses of being an entrepreneur; the days that can be filled with fear and desperation. I know it more than I have ever wanted to. I remember a particular time, not too long ago, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, pull the covers over my head and make all the stress and worry go away. I was just plain tired. I had put so much time and effort into my business and yet I was still struggling. Even the quick fix everybody suggested of getting a “real job” wasn’t yielding results. I distinctly remember one day, sitting on my couch in a state of pure numbness, going through all of the possible options that would get myself out of the mess I had made and coming to the painful realization that there wasn’t any magical solution, and no prince was going to save me. The only way out of the mess was to go through it.

I venture to guess that many business owners or entrepreneurs have been where I have been, in some form or another, and would agree with me when I say:

• Building a business is work

• It doesn’t happen overnight

• There is not one magic blueprint that you can buy or download that is going to be the absolute solution. Your business  is unique to you; what works for one person may not work for you.

• Trying to build a business in a state of panic or desperation does not work.

• You can’t make decisions out of fear.

So what do you do when you’re overwhelmed, tired and frustrated? The first thing to do is breathe. I am here to tell you that there is hope and there is a brighter tomorrow. I know this because even in the most fearful and chaotic times, I was able to find peace. Finding peace and calm amongst the chaos is not only critical to your sanity, but the only way that you can make thoughtful and empowered decisions. It is only from a place of calm where the answers will be revealed, and you will find the strength to continue.

It is possible. Let me tell you 3 simple tools that saved my sanity.

You must live in the Now.

“As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love – even the simplest action.” ― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Think about your past, it is only a memory. Now think about your future, it is only an illusion. The only thing that exists is the present moment. Learning this simple truth changed my life!  If you find yourself stressed and worried, bring yourself back to the present moment and ask yourself these 3 questions:

 Am I safe?

Am I loved?

Am I capable?

There has never been a time that I have answered no to any of these questions. Even in the toughest situations, I was always safe, I was always loved, and I was always capable of finding a way to keep on keeping on. Just this simple exercise always brought me back into a place of empowerment. It also brought me into a place of gratitude because I knew I had so much to be grateful for. When you come at any problem or situation from a state of gratitude and empowerment, knowing that you are safe, loved, and capable, you can make wise choices. You may not have all the answers, but you are capable of finding them. Think about all the ‘now’s you can string together to create the tomorrow that you desire.

Surrender

This word has gotten a bad rap over the years. So many people associate it with throwing in the towel and admitting defeat. I look at surrender as admitting that you don’t have the answer. Imagine for a moment that your problems and solutions are bouncing around in your head, trying to find a match. There is limited space and the only solutions are from your limited experiences. Now imagine opening your head like a zipper, so the challenges can fly out to be matched with an infinite amount of solutions. Surrendering is opening yourself up to possibilities that your own limited thinking can’t provide. Take whatever challenge you are facing and give it up to a higher authority and then watch for the solution to appear. The answer may come in the form of inspiration, a thought or idea, or perhaps a new connection. Hint: Let go of what you think the answer should look like. When finances were a struggle, I thought the only solution was more clients. I was so attached to that answer, I didn’t consider other possibilities. When more clients were not appearing, I got frustrated, angry and shut down. If you are attached to only one outcome, you may miss out on other opportunities that are trying to appear. Live in the question “what solution will appear?” and see what unfolds.

Ask for support

Don’t be afraid to talk about what you need. One resource that I have found to be incredibly valuable are online groups (I run one as well). There are so many wonderful online communities that you can join that will help support you. The key is that you have to put yourself. Recently, I sent out text messages and Facebook messages to people and friends and told them what I needed. I was amazed at the amount of people who stepped up and helped me tap into resources I had never thought of. The perfect solution appeared; one that I would have never thought to ask for. Had I stayed isolated and not sought help, my life would be very different today. The key is that you need to step outside of yourself and ask for help. Open yourself up to people outside of your normal community of close friends and family, as sometimes it is better to get an outside perspective from people that have more distance from the situation. There are so many online groups and local networking groups that you can join that will help you work through challenges, give you feedback and support you. I have made some amazing connections from people who I call friends, even though they live on the other side of the world and I may never meet  in person.

Stop trying to do it on your own.

I am a business coach and I believe a good one, but there was a time that I was so afraid to reach out to people because I thought that I should have all the answers. What I realized was struggling didn’t mean I was failing, I just needed help. I isolated myself and tried to do it all on my own. Although doing it on my own has given me valuable tools and resources that I can pass along to my clients, I didn’t do myself any favors. Building a business is work, but it doesn’t have to be hard work. Let others in so that they can support you and help you see the obstacles that you may not be seeing. If you are isolating yourself from people and support, you are also isolating yourself from clients. If you have tried doing it on your own and aren’t getting results, I encourage you to seek outside resources.

Life is filled with ups and downs. Know that you are never alone and that there are so many resources and people out there ready, willing and able to help you get to where you want to go. Remember, to stay present as that is where the magic starts to happen.  Nothing can be solved by living in the past, or worrying about the future.

7 Simple Steps to Overcome Overwhelm — May 27, 2015

7 Simple Steps to Overcome Overwhelm

Have you ever had days where you’ve had so much to do you didn’t know where to begin? On those days, have you ever opted for a nap rather than diving into your work? If you answered “yes”, don’t judge yourself too harshly. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’re lazy, but it’s a sign you may be overwhelmed.
It is very easy to be overwhelmed by all the demands on your time, both in business and in your personal life. I have found it can play out very differently in business than in your personal life. Often times in business when we are overwhelmed, we feel paralyzed ¬– which results in procrastination. In our personal life, the deadlines are more critical and obvious so we tend to push forward, whether we feel overwhelmed or not. I will venture to say, if you know your child needs to be picked up from school, fed and brought to soccer practice, you wouldn’t put it off because it felt like a lot to think about. You would dive in and do it. In business, when the deadlines aren’t so clear, it is much easier to put things off. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t ramifications – they are just more subtle.

I know what it is like to grow a business; there are so many things to juggle, and if you are like many, you can’t hire everything out. When I was launching my business, I became a web developer, a social media expert, an accountant, and a marketer – all while coaching my clients. I remember one night my daughter came into my room and saw me watching a YouTube video about SEO strategy. She looked at me and said, “You are just a ton of fun!” On the flip side, there were many days when I went in to my office and didn’t know where to begin.
If this sounds like you, here is a great strategy to get you back on track:
1. Purge
If you are feeling overwhelmed, grab a piece of paper and a pen and start writing. Take 10 minutes and write down everything that you need to do, from the biggest to the smallest of tasks. Include everything from business to personal life. (Even if at the time you are writing, you decide you want a cup of coffee, write it down.) The idea is to purge everything out of your head and get it down on paper. This activity alone will give you a different prospective. Write until you feel the task is complete.

2. Change your state of mind
Once you have completed your list, do something that will completely change your state of mind. Take a walk, get your mail, crank the music and dance; do anything that is going to move your energy.  Doing this will clear your mind, so you can come back at it in a more empowered state.

3. Categorize
After you have changed your state, come back to your list and look at it. You will find that items on this list should fit into a natural category, such as personal, home, business, kids, etc. Loosely assign each item to a category.

4. Challenge yourself
Set the timer for 30 minutes and see how many tasks you can complete in that amount of time. Remember that cup of coffee? Go get it and cross it off your list. Ready. Set. Go!

5. Prioritize
Look over your list; what things can you move to the bottom of your priorities for the next week? Example: There was a time I had a bathroom that was ½ painted because I ran out of time and supplies. It was bugging me, but when I went through this exercise I knew I could realistically let it go. What items can you cross off your list?

6. Find the strategy
If you look at the list, is there a natural strategy that emerges? For example, if your list shows:
• Build a business Facebook page
• Start a blog
The natural order would be for you to build Facebook and then start your blog. Within each category and item, prioritize each of the tasks you have listed.

7. Pick the most critical
Pick the top 1 or 2 items on your list that have the highest priority that you want completed within a week. Break those items down into the smallest bite size pieces. Let’s use painting my bathroom as an example:
Monday – pick up paint
Tuesday – tape off trim
Wednesday – paint around doors and fixtures
Thursday – paint one wall
Friday – paint 2nd wall
Saturday – paint 3rd wall
Sunday – remove tape and clean up

You may find that once you get into the job, you can do more than you planned, but by breaking down tasks into smaller chunks, the project doesn’t seem so overwhelming. Here is the beauty of this plan:

• Each task takes less than 1 hour
• You know the project will be completed in 1 week
• Each task is manageable
• Because you are only devoting 1 hour to each task, you can simultaneously be working on another task as well.

Here is the key. Make sure to cross of each task as you complete them. Take the time to celebrate each successful task completed!

Do this exercise at the start of each week and you could rule the world!

Every day I work with people that are struggling to figure how to grow their business. They are overwhelmed and just need a plan. My specialty is turning your stress into a business and life plan to achieve your goals.

Does this sound familiar?
• Do you have a lot of plans and ideas but aren’t sure how to execute them?
• Are there pieces to your business that are missing (social media, lead capturing, etc.) but you don’t have the time or training to implement them?
• Are you struggling with limiting beliefs but don’t know how to make changes?

When is the last time you upgraded your system? — May 19, 2015

When is the last time you upgraded your system?

The other day I received a notification on my phone telling me that there was an operating system upgrade that was ready to install.  After I installed the upgrade I was excited about some of the new features that would increase its capabilities and fix some minor bugs. This got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice if life would give us the same type of push notifications when it was time to upgrade our own internal operating system?

When you are running a business you can be inundated with daily ideas and opinions on what is the latest and greatest way to make your business successful. As a business owner myself, It can be downright overwhelming. But what I know for sure is that before you invest in any marketing strategy, there are critical components that must be evaluated and aligned before you take that step. These foundational 4M’s are critical: Mindset, Motivation, Message, and Marketing.  Consider it like a bike lock, if each of these components are aligned, in the right order, your operation will be successful.

To put it in perspective, imagine you had a computer with all the latest computer programs. Programs that could help you manage your time, your finances, plan a vacation and even help you redecorate your home all in one evening! Just think of how efficient and organized you would be. Now imagine that you are trying to run those same programs from an old and outdated computer. This could dramatically change your experience from efficient to downright frustrating. You don’t need to be a computer genius to know that computer systems need to be consistently upgraded or they won’t work properly. Chances are, you don’t question the benefits of that investment. But there is a program that can have the most dramatic effect on whether your business is successful or struggling. Often times it is overlooked and in many cases, you are not even aware that it exists. This program is your mindset. Your mindset is your internal operating system and the most important foundation of your business.

Let’s assume that you have all the right equipment to run your business efficiently. You have everything from the latest smart phone to a tablet and have invested in a website and optimized it with landing pages, SEO, SEM and other acronyms that most of us haven’t even heard of yet. Now imagine that every morning you say to yourself. “I want this to work, but don’t really see it happening” If that sounds remotely familiar, you are running your business on a corrupt internal operating system.

We each have our own internal operating system that we unconsciously operate from on a daily basis. It consists of our beliefs and values but can be influenced by many other things from our environment to past experiences. Every day we make decisions as to how we go about our activities based on that system and rarely do we stop and evaluate to see if our system is running on corrupt or outdated data. Let’s take for example the story about a woman who was making a ham for dinner.  As her daughter watched, she sliced off a chunk of the ham and threw it away. Her daughter asked “Why did you throw away a perfectly good piece of ham?” To which her mother replied.” I don’t know, that is the way my mother always did it.” Thinking about it later, she was curious as to why her mother had prepared ham this way and decided to call her. After explaining the story her mother giggled and said “I cut off a piece because I never had a pan big enough to fit it.”  So what beliefs could you be operated from that perhaps don’t even belong to you? Or more important, how would you know? Consider these top signs like a push notification that your internal operating system needs to be evaluated:

  • Financial Challenges
  • Business struggles either loss of business, or lack of business
  • Relationship Issues
  • Emotional Challenges
  • Chaotic home or work environment

What you “believe” to be true, may be sabotaging your business success.  Investing in aligning yourself with the proper mindset is just as important, if not more, than investing in the latest automation. I encourage you to spend 5 minutes and write without judgment or editing, all the answers to the following question. “I believe…….” Then ask yourself, do these beliefs support my highest good, or limit my success? If they are limiting your success, I encourage you to take action today. There is no time like the present to start living your fullest potential.

Need some direction? I would love to help. As a Business and Life Coach my passion is to help people get out of their own way and start living on purpose!

5 Simple Step to Mastering Your Money and Manifesting More — May 12, 2015

5 Simple Step to Mastering Your Money and Manifesting More

Everybody has a unique relationship with money. For some, it may not be an issue, but if you are like many, money can be a constant source of anxiety.

Money has been an issue of mine for many years. I was on a vicious cycle of going from in debt, to paying it off, then starting the vicious cycle all over again. As the cycles continued the highs were getting higher and the lows were getting lower. I was at my absolute lowest when I had to prioritize my tasks by how much gas I had in my car.
My energy around money was all about lack, desperation, and avoidance which is a perfect recipe to bake up a nice batch of more lack and more desperation. I was on a spinning wheel and I didn’t know how to get off, until one day it finally clicked.
Money problems aren’t solved by money. Although it seems like the logical solution, my problems weren’t caused by lack of money, it was my thoughts and beliefs about money and how I was “dealing” with the situation (or in reality, not dealing with the situation) that were causing the problems to continue. Once I figured that out, the magic began. Here is the good news; it really comes down to 5 basics steps. Once you master these, abundance flows. This may not sound like new information, but taking it as a step by step process helps to transform the energy around your money and heal it for good.

Step #1 It’s Time to Tell the Truth

You can’t heal a sore that is infected. Denying that it is infected doesn’t change the truth.
What you resist persists.
Knowledge gives you power over the situation. The more you know the more control you have to fix the situation. So those bills that are sitting in your drawer unopened, it’s time to open them. If you need to, enlist the help of a good friend to go through it with you. Having another person involved helps hold you accountable.

Assignment #1
This is a very critical step because you can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.
Start a journal and a monthly budget tracking system. (Feel free to download the one that I have on my website under resources) This will help you get very clear about your finances and expenses. Include in your journal:
• Bank balances – checking/savings even if they are negative write them down.
• Credit Card Balances and the interest rates you are paying
• Outstanding loans including the interest rates
• Assets
• Any other debt
• Monthly Expenses
• Monthly Income

Step # 2 Learn the Lessons

Any behavior, either positive or negative has a payoff. That is easier to admit around positive behavior but often times a hard pill to swallow when you are in financial distress.

If you look at the information that you gathered in step #1 ask yourself the following questions (without judgement!)

1.) How is your current situation serving you in some way?
a. What is your payoff?
b. What is the price you are paying for that payoff?

Have you ever had a hard time letting go of an argument because you haven’t felt heard? Your relationship with money can be the same way.

2.) What is your current situation trying to tell you?

3.) Give it a voice and listen to the lesson.

4.) Are you ready to learn the lesson and shift the behavior?

Show gratitude for your current bills or debt

It is so easy to look at debt and bills and feel negativity. But with any bill or debt, you have received something in return. Even a car repair bill may have given you the ability to have a working vehicle to get you back and forth to work. Every bill, even those that may feel negative, will have some gift in it. You just need to find it.

Gratitude is one of the best ways to transform your current state of mind and get you back into a state of abundance.

Assignment #2
Take each bill, hold it in your hand and thank it for the services that it has provided you. Do that with each bill, every month.

Step # 3 Uncovering Your Beliefs About Money

Everybody has their own beliefs about money and unique relationships with it. These beliefs could have been formed even before you knew what money was. Think back, was there a lot of drama around money in your family? What beliefs have you picked up, either good or bad that have shaped your view on money today?

Assignment #3

Ask yourself what you truly believe about money? Write down at least 50 beliefs that you have about money.

Step #4 Heal Your Limiting Beliefs

What did you uncover in step #3?
Any belief that does not serve your highest good is called a limiting belief. No matter what you logically know to be true, your limiting beliefs will trump those all the time. Those beliefs, either positive or negative, are what you act upon, whether you are conscious of it or not. I remember when I was at the height of my career in banking, I felt a lot of shame and embarrassment around the money that I was making. It is no wonder I spent my way down to a bank balance that I was more comfortable with!

Taking the time to work with your limiting beliefs and clear them is going to be one of the most critical steps you take to manifesting more money. Imagine it like a barricade blocking the flow of water, removing it opens the floodgates for abundance to flow.
Assignment #4

Given the 50 items from above, what beliefs aren’t serving your highest good today? Take the time to circle those that you want to transform and turn them in to a positive affirmation.
For example:

I believe I am not worthy of making a lot of money

Could become

I believe I am worthy of making a lot of money.

Write these affirmations down on five pieces of paper and put them in five prominent spots in your house, car or purse. Any time you get a chance, read them over and feel it in your heart.

Beliefs are stored in the subconscious mind, so it is possible that you may need some additional help to transform some very old patterns. There are many tools and techniques that you can use to transform these beliefs. I encourage you to check out my “Breakthrough your Barriers’” coaching session for additional help and resources.

Step #5 Believe it is Possible.

All of the hard work that you have done in steps 1-4 are great exercises, but if you don’t believe that you can manifest your desires, your efforts will be diminished. If I can make a lot of money and transform my story, you can too! Don’t let yourself stand in the way of your own success. If you believe it is possible, life won’t prove you wrong. You get what you believe. I know this sounds very simple, but believe me, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The hardest part is beginning and knowing that you want more from your life. I wish somebody had told me years ago the importance of having a healthy relationship with money. I know that would have made a huge difference in my life.

Here is a personal note from me: It is easy to isolate yourself when you are going through financial stress, but that is the time you should be reaching out for support. There was a time when people where willing to give me money to help me out, and I was very grateful for their support, but there came a time when I had to say enough is enough, draw a line in the sand and command things to be different. It took awhile for me to get my life back on track. The support I needed, I could not find from traditional resources, which is why I am offering this special program 4 Month Money Mastery Mastermind.  If you want to be involved in a great support system, I encourage you to check it out; it combines coaching, education, support and real solutions so you can claim the life you deserve.

Why I gave my new phone to my daughter and how it saved my business and my soul — May 2, 2015

Why I gave my new phone to my daughter and how it saved my business and my soul

Have you ever had moments in your business, or in life in general, where you felt like you were doing, doing, doing, but you weren’t seeing the results of your efforts? Twenty days ago that was me. I was spending hours working, and when I wasn’t working, I was thinking about work, or what I “should” be doing. My mind was never at rest. When I would finally give myself permission to go to bed, I would turn on Netflix to zone out and avoid thinking at all. (But not before checking my e-mails one more time)  I was panicking over what I needed to do to keep my business afloat. I was spinning out of control. 

One afternoon, after another busy and frantic day, I was sitting in my bedroom emotionally exhausted, but unable to “turn off” the day for fear that I hadn’t done enough. I was tired and crazed and I knew something had to change. I picked up my phone, walked in to my daughter’s bedroom and handed it to her.  As she looked at me extremely confused, I told her she needed to take it for the next 5 hours because I was surrendering.  “So you are finally ready to admit you are addicted?” she said to me.  (Anybody that knows my daughter will know that is the pot calling the kettle black, but that isn’t the point of this story.)  It wasn’t about a habit that I couldn’t break, it was so much bigger than that. I had lost my identity. I call it chasing cats.  If you try to chase a cat, even with the best intentions to give it love and attention, it will run and hide. In business, it works the same way.  I went back to my room, picked up my pen and my journal and began my 20 day business transformation.

 I want to back up a bit to explain how I got into this state of mind. It all started with a Facebook group. 

 Several weeks ago I ran across a Facebook group that had over 8000 members, all women entrepreneurs.  I was thrilled!  8000 people who I thought I could help. What I didn’t realize was that most of the members were coaches, all trying to get business just like me.  Everyday my Facebook feed was filled with offers from coaches giving away free services, quick fixes and everything in between.  I felt like I was in a mob trying to get something for free even though I didn’t really want it. I was so caught up in the energy of the group that I jumped in to claim my piece of the action.  For a couple of weeks I was posting services and offers hoping to get any type of business, and feeling worthless when my offers weren’t getting the same response as others.  I had jumped on the spinning wheel with both feet and I was getting nauseous. Logically, I knew better but yet here I was in the middle of a storm scrambling for business from people who weren’t even the clients I wanted to work with. 

 That is when I decided to give my phone to my daughter.

 That night, I felt more bliss then I had in a while.  I knew that the best place to find my answers was not going to be found on a cellular device but within my heart itself.  I had a greater marketing genius on my side and that was the divine guidance I needed to listen to.  There comes a tipping point when learning from the experts becomes trying to be like the “experts.”  We all bring something very different to the table and that is the “thing” that will connect you to your ideal client.  It isn’t the free offer, or the discounted service, it is connecting to your client’s issues and providing the solution in a way that only you can do. 

I am in deep gratitude because this experience gave me an opportunity  to re-evaluate (once again) who I am, and who I want to serve and reattached myself to that vision.  To be honest, I had lost that way before this experience but I hadn’t really given myself the space to process it.  (I will be sharing in upcoming blogs what I learned in my 20 day business transformation, as the insights that I gained were divinely ordered and meant to be shared. )

 But here is what I can share with you today…

 My new website It is crisp, clear and focused just like I feel!

 I know who I am and my core strengths

  • Strategy – I excel at taking a big Idea and creating a strategy to execute it.

  • Language – I  identify key areas that might be causing you challenges.

  • Relationships – Creating healthy relationships with yourself, your team, your money or other key relationships in your life.

 I know who can benefit from my services

 Driven entrepreneurs and businesses that need a fresh perspective and know that they can’t do it on their own. They are business owners and entrepreneurs that are looking to build their business on purpose. 

 Could that be you? Check it out.

 What is around the bend?

Exciting details coming later in May.
