How to Avoid The Pinball Effect and Be More Productive

A recent coaching call got me thinking more deeply about how “chaotic” our minds can get as entrepreneurs.

Do you ever feel like the ball in a pinball machine?

We’re trying to focus on developing a program, but then we need to write that blog post, and oops we need to say something on social media… then,”oooh…. look who just launched a new program! It’s gorgeous. Gosh, I’m not doing enough… Maybe that idea I had wasn’t right… Maybe I need to do this new thing. Ok, I’m going to start mapping that new idea out. Oooh this is fun! Wait… I […]

Shake the Apple Tree

I want to share a concept that came to me not too long ago, and it’s really made a difference.

There were certain aspects of my business that had been feeling a bit stale… or it just felt like certain things weren’t working no matter how much effort I put in, how well-researched I was, how much time I spent, or how creative I got with my approach. We’re talking about many months of “trying.”

Nothing bad was happening – it just felt like things weren’t moving forward in these areas. The fighter in me wanted to persevere and prove that I […]

The Grass is STILL Not Greener on the Other Side

You may have heard me say this before, but this is a message is worth repeating (over and over and over again)…

The grass is not greener on the other side.

Have you ever looked at someone you admire and think about how easy they must have it or how much you wish you could experience what they experience?

“The Grass IS Greener on the Other Side” concept has been around for a long time. Too long. This phrase just expresses our lack of personal fulfillment and distraction in always looking at what others have… thinking it must be easier or better “for them.” […]

How to Make Realistic Resolutions That Stick!

I hope you’re in the mood for some motivation because I want to get you fired up to make resolutions for this new year that actually stick!

For many people, it’s the same pattern every year. Just before the New Year, they’re SO excited for a fresh start. They make resolutions that they swear they’ll stick to. They promise themselves that this year will be different.

The new year starts, and in no time at all (typically less than TWO WEEKS!) the motivation fades, excuses run rampant and those goals become a thing of the past. It’s because we set too many […]

The Lonely Side of Entrepreneurship

I’m going to point out the elephant in the room… being an online entrepreneur can be lonely.

As exciting as entrepreneurship is, so many of us occasionally find ourselves in that lonely place. And guess what? That’s totally normal and expected.

Why do we feel this way?

Because what we do is a crazy, exciting, challenging, stressful, amazing thrill ride of an adventure, and not everyone can relate. You might have friends or family members who don’t really understand what you’re doing or why you’re doing it. (But, man, is it incredibly exciting when you connect with someone who does understand!) And because […]

Summer has passed, kids are back in school and that keyboard is just staring at you … ready for you to take serious action.

Creating a Movement!

Who’s up for creating a movement?

Running a business is not easy.  There is always something to think about.

I sometimes think about the routine and automation of each business day. We wake up, we try to market, we try to sell, we need to sell (we need to sell!), we just want to create (we need to sell!), we feel pressure to do more – faster… it can be a lot.  A LOT.

You hear other “experts” say how you need a 5,000+ person list, you need to do more webinars, create more products, start Facebook Ads, get on ClickFunnels … the […]
