How I Am Having My Best Month Ever

How I Am Having My Best Month Ever

It comes down to one simple word. Change.
I am setting some of the biggest goals I have ever had for myself.
But here’s what I am NOT doing >>> the same things I did last month, the month before that and the month before that.
If I am going to achieve and receive something I have never had before, I know I am going to have to do things and take actions in ways I haven’t done before. And that means CHANGE!
For most people, change evokes fear. The invasive question “what if” kicks into high gear and before you know it, you have talked yourself out of doing things differently and just staying with what works and what is known.
How about this time you try talking yourself INTO IT!?!?
The problem is that to your mind: 
change = unknown. 
And unknown = unsafe.
As soon as something is unsafe to your mind, it is programmed to shut that shit down! You will almost immediately hear back talk from your mind! So please know when this happens my love, it is not just you!
Whenever you try to step outside of your “safety zone” your mind will instantly start telling you why this is a bad idea, why it won’t work for you and how this could never be possible, so just sit here, feel bad and be quiet.
Sound familiar?
Well I am here to tell you, that does not serve you and that does not allow you to step into being the most magnificent version of you!
And that is who you are here to be.
Here’s a simple process I use to start calming my mind and easing the anxiety of change:
  1. Get clear on the fear. What are the actual words that are running through your mind? What are the “shut down” statements you hear yourself saying to yourself? Those are limiting beliefs. And we want to become very aware of them. Because once you become aware, you are in your power position to shift it!
  2. Rewrite the fear with faith. Each time one of these limiting beliefs shows it’s ugly self, take the time to write it down! On the line below it, I want you to turn that BS belief into an expansive belief! Write out a powerful statement that overrides the fear-based belief! Write it with intent and conviction that this is your new truth! And totally FEEL it and own it!
  3. Activating Action. Take some kind of action that is aligned with your NEW belief. No matter how small the action, when you do it from your new power position you start activating the mind to see IT IS SAFE for you to get out of your safety zone and into your success zone!
It might seem like a lot of work, monitoring your thoughts, writing them out and then taking action from that new empowered place.
But doesn’t staying stuck and not realizing your dreams feel more exhausting?
I would love to hear about your dreams and goals for this month!

My 5 Favorite Ways I Have Grown My Business

My 5 Favorite Ways I Have Grown My Business

It’s hard to believe I am coming up on my 5 year anniversary of becoming a spiritual entrepreneur.

What’s even more unbelievable is how much I am still totally in love with the way I get to serve my clients and my community!

As I was thinking back, I started to think of all the different paths that got me here and I wanted to share with you my favorite 5!

  1. Collaborations. From day 1 I have been all about collaborative projects, programs and partnerships. Whether it was initiated by me, or the other party, these opportunities led me to either another collaboration, client or idea. Some of these collaborators have become my business besties and my soul sisters. This is a big piece of my strategy for 2019!
  2. Trial and experiment. I am an idea addict. I rarely turn down a divine download from the Universe. I have tried hundreds of different offers, ideas, projects and programs. Some of them flopped, some of them popped and some of them I am still doing. But no matter what the result was, I learned from it. What I want to do again, what I want to let go of. I am always up for trying something new!
  3. Consistent content creation. I am always putting out something! Whether it is in social media, at a networking event, writing an email to you, hosting a free training, (PS see below) I always have something going that allows me to be in front of my ideal community. Each time I do that, new business happens for me. The best part? I give about 90% of my content for free. I create it and share it because I love it. And it always gives me a return.
  4. I have a diversified business model. Let me ask you something. If Facebook shut down tomorrow, would you panic? I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Facebook is not your business! It is a tool, a great platform to communicate on, but your business should not be dependent on it, or any one piece. Here’s a look at my business model-Referrals, Social Media (FB, IG, YouTube, Linked In), Email marketing, Paid advertising, Networking, Guest Speaking. By not putting all of my eggs in one “business” basket, I am able to keep my business booked solid.
  5.  I follow my intuition. No matter what, I follow what is calling. I have learned to trust my inner knowing more than anything and anyone on this planet. I don’t care if it’s Marie Forleo, Tony Robbins or Oprah, if it feels out of alignment, it’s not worth it for me to do it. And as soon as it starts to not feel good anymore, I’m out. The second I start to feel like “I have to”, I’m not looking forward to it, or I am not in my zone of genius, I cut it short, cut my losses and cut the cord. Because if my soul isn’t feeling it, I shouldn’t be doing it.

 

Out of these 5, is there one that stands out to you that you want more of in your business? Come and join in a discussion in my Facebook group Coffee with The Universe!

I can’t wait to hear from you and read your thoughts and comments!!!
Lost Your Mojo?

Lost Your Mojo?

Have you ever hit a point in your business or in your life where you completely lost your mojo unexpectedly?

Let me tell you, I had this experience last week and it about wiped me out! As entrepreneurs, we thrive when we are aligned and have clarity around our goals, desires, and the action steps we are taking. But sometimes, when we least expect it, and for reasons we may not even know, an obstacle shows up that not only sidetracks us from our dreams but sucks the energy right out of us!

I want to share with you 4 simple ways to get back on track and get your mojo back when you hit one of these periods:

  1. Rest! Take the time to get some extra sleep, take a nap even! It is when you surrender to the circumstance that you give yourself the opportunity to gain more insight and get back on track quicker. So often we want to push and shove to get answers and get back up, but that is the exact opposite of what is going to get you back in the saddle. Resting gourmand is like hitting to reboot button. To some, it may feel irresponsible to walk away from the situation and “rest”, but it is actually the best thing you can do for yourself and your business.
  2. Write it out! Whenever you are feeling stuck or unsure, get out a notebook and some pens and write out exactly how you are feeling, and what questions you have rolling around in your head. Take a few minutes to reflect on how you are feeling and let it flow on to the paper. Ask for guidance and answers, and give a few minutes of space to let some answers come in. The Universe will never leave you hanging! The answers are there, just tune in!
  3. Water and Exercise! Get your body up and moving and stay hydrated. (after the rest) Water is going to flush your system and the exercise gets endorphins working! All great things when you are experiencing a downswing!
  4. Meditate! Everyone does it in their own way, whether you realize it or not. Find a form of meditation that works for you where you find clarity and connection to the Universe. Get your mindset reset, and before you know it, you will be firing on all cylinders again!

Always know that even in these moments of frustration and fogginess, there is a bigger purpose that you might not be able to see. New desires are stirring and fresh ideas are coming. It is in the darkness that we appreciate the light.

When it feels like things are falling apart, just trust that they are ultimately falling into place. 

Are You MIA In Your Business?

Are You MIA In Your Business?

If you have been Missing In Action from your business, creating content and sharing your message my guess is because it’s that you actually are NOT clear on your Most Important Action(s).
Here’s the thing, your community, they want to hear from you! And when you start to shrink and hide instead of connecting and creating, nobody wins!
So here are a few things that you can do to stay focused on what is most important:
1) Stay locked into how you serving. 
What ways do you love to show up for your community? Do you love #pendrops or #micdrops? Whatever excites you should be scheduled on your calendar to do as often as possible. The more consistent you are in connecting with your tribe, the more you are consistent in their mind! And we want them thinking of you and how you can help them all the time!!!
2) Stay lit up about what you are selling.
Talk about one thing, the one offer you have that you are super excited to have people say yes to! I used to be guilty of this myself. I would get an idea for an offer, put it out in the world, start sharing it and promoting it. But then when I didn’t get the sales or traction right away that I wanted, I would switch and start to focus on something new. When you stay focused on one offer at a time and you believe in it and stay true to following the energy behind it, your ideal clients will buy it.
Make it easy for your people to know what you have going on and how they can work with you.
3) Stay tuned in to your can’t wait to do list.
Whatever is on there that feels like a drag, probably needs to be delegated. Really pay attention to what you put off and procrastinate. Those tasks are energy suckers and take you away from serving and selling.
And if you aren’t doing those 2 things in your business…
Then it is time for you to allow me to serve you!
If you are ready to get into serious inspired action and are truly at a point where you want to serve, sell and soar in your business, I want to be the one to help you get there and do it!
+Creative marketing strategies to get you seen.
+Mindset mentoring to keep you motivated and focused.
+Clarity for the actions you need to take to get the outcomes you want!
+Accountability laced with inspiration.
It Really Comes Down to These 2 Things

It Really Comes Down to These 2 Things

I want to share with you a simple process I use whenever I am not hitting my goals. This is where I start and what I look at to tell me where I am off track. So if you do not have the clients you want, the income you desire, or if a package/program is not selling the way you want it to, it really comes down to these 2 questions:
#1) Am I getting clicks and calls?
Lean in sister, I am going to break it to you, if you don’t know your numbers, how do you know if your marketing efforts are working?
If you aren’t getting a lot of clicks on your sales page, your emails aren’t getting opened, people aren’t booking discovery calls, that tells us something super important, there is a big block in your marketing!
Now, you get to go back to the drawing board and look at what your current marketing strategy is and what current marketing content needs to be rejuvenated!
#2) Am I closing?
If you were able to answer yes to question #1, that means you are getting the prospects and potential buyers in front of you! Congrats! You are super close! But are you closing the sale? Are you asking for the business and making invitations for people to buy from you and work with you? If you are getting all the way to this point, but still not creating the income and converting, we know it is in your sales process!
Being able to identify which area is out of alignment puts you in a power position to start changing the course you are on immediately!
And here’s the other little thing I want to mention. Don’t let this frustrate you, let this enlighten you!
Get excited that you don’t get to go back to just the drawing board, you get to go back to the vision board!
