2017 was challenging. We still had a top sales year, worked on so many cool projects, traveled, and enjoyed life.
The challenge for me, personally, came in what seemed at EVERY turn, the ‘old ways’ of doing things no longer worked. UGH…it was maddening!!
I changed our project management system from ProjectBubble to ActiveCollab (WOW – that system rocks!!). I can’t even tell you how much of a headache this was (think hundreds and hundreds of client projects, thousands upon thousands of tasks, and time records for each task, client notes, you name it….).
After a decade I changed our domain name – […]
I want to share some valuable wisdom that I only understood after YEARS of working in my own business. (This is not something people talk about very commonly, but it’s really profound if you’re ready to hear it.)
It has to do with the pricing you choose for your services, products, events and so forth. We all want to make the most income for the time we spend. We all want to help the largest amount of people. But those two “wants” compete against each other.
What I mean is, if I charge $1 for a product, I can help a lot […]
I have a question for you…
Are you (like most people) struggling to stay in control of your growing to-do list?!
Welcome to the entrepreneur club! You already know how important it is to stay in a space of passion, motivation and creativity. But that gets really hard to do when you’re trying to manage a thousand daily requests and tasks.
It never stops, does it? (I’m looking at you, email!!)
I want you to regain control so that you can focus on successfully growing your business. So, I’m sharing a great tip that will help you to stay productive while reducing stress, […]
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.” […]
I want to share something with you that I absolutely love!
Nothing happens until something moves.
Albert Einstein said that, and he was right.
Do you ever feel like you’re on a plateau?
Your email list isn’t growing, or it seems like you just can’t seem to make the progress you want in your personal or professional world?
If you want a way out, the answer is easier than you think.
It’s really not more complex than that. Opportunity comes after action has been taken.
A big key to my success? I never stop taking action. Big or small.
Even when I’m “too busy,” or the weeks […]
It’s a special day for me and for one of my most favorite people in the whole world…Jon Vroman.
I met Jon about 13 years ago when I was selling Cutco Cutlery (I still smile every time I think about that game-changing opportunity). Jon was working in corporate when I met him, but branched off and started The Front Row Foundation which raises money to put individuals facing life-threatening illness in the front row of the event of their dreams. I’ve donated to Front Row on multiple occasions, but the best by far was when I got to […]
I’m excited to share a quick tip that will help to ensure that you’re giving your customers what they really want (and monetizing your business in the process!). It’s a total win-win!
Survey your audience!
Sounds like a no-brainer, huh? But most people aren’t doing this. If you’re one of them, I highly encourage you to try it out. You won’t be sorry!
Here’s what to do:
Mark your calendar so that once each quarter, you send a brief survey out to your audience.
Try to limit the survey to 5 questions (you want to respect their time!).
Let them know that you want to […]
Are you letting filler words get in the way of your message? What’s a filler word? Um, you know what, like, a filler word is. They’re those little words (not even always actual words….lol) that we often use to fill uncomfortable pauses or silence. Most of the time, we’re not even aware that we’re using them.
Have you ever listened to someone speaking at an event, in the workplace … or even during a casual conversation … only to find yourself completely distracted by how many times he or she is uttering “ummm” or “so” or “like?” It’s completely distracting and […]
I always reflect on my top life lessons ,which this year, sent me on a hunt for something I wrote YEARS ago….
Today, I want to share some of my top business truths in hopes that you can achieve a mindset shift or receive a nugget to help you achieve greater levels of success.
You deserve to live your dreams!!
Treat others the way you want to be treated. Enough said.
Spend dedicated time every single day to think about (and more importantly “feel”) what you are grateful for. Not only does it heal any wounds from the day or from the past, but […]
I was reading an article recently which led me down a path of reading all kinds of things (lol)! Been there?
Well I eventually came across an article on Business Insider titled “18 Tips for Success from Richard Branson” and thought it had some great value. I wanted to share it with you.
Perhaps when you’re done, you can comment below and tell me which tips resonated the most with you. 🙂
Now, inside the article you’ll see a paragraph or two about each tip (read that content!), but here are the highlights for you:
Don’t do it if you don’t enjoy it.
