Realistic Tools For Growing Your Business

How To Make Life Easier

Sep 22, 2019

I just want to go play golf on a Wednesday afternoon.

This was from a dude who owns a small, local brick & mortar business. He’s makes a nice living from his company and has a good team of people to help him.

But he can’t take any time off without his staff giving him a hard time.

A similar thing happened in my first business - the fitness studio: an employee told me she “was lonely” when I wasn’t there.

She said she took the job because she liked the owners so much.

And now she was alone all the time doing the work I used to do.

OMG. I almost lost my mind....

Here's Why You Don't Deserve Time Off

Sep 15, 2019

Clients kept telling me, It just doesn’t feel the same without you here.

Lordy, lordy, the guilt was setting in fast!

I’d been working from 5am ‘til early evening at the fitness studio I owned, a schedule that was starting to create deep cracks in my armor.

Running on empty, I’d hired help. I was no longer the face at the front desk, greeting clients on their way in & out of the gym.

The people we’d hired were FANTASTIC! I was so pleased with them - and also loved having  more time back in my days.

So when clients started to tell us that It’s...

Why don’t you have what you want?

Sep 08, 2019

Most of us chalk it up to not having the time.

Life’s busy. The to-do list is looooong.

I used to act like the longer my to-do list was, the more honorable I was.

  1. Was. Busy.

Maybe you’ve heard that saying, “I’m busy” is a choice - but my clients don’t really believe that when they find me.

They’ve not yet learned that it’s the THINKING “I’m busy” that creates overwhelm in our lives.


Being busy comes from what’s going on in your MIND - if you want to change 

…what your day looks like -

…what your...

Why You Can Stop Listening to Logic

It took Katy Jeremko SIX YEARS to make her dream come true…

While she was waiting for that to happen, she…

  • worked at NASA.
  • traveled all over the world.
  • collaborated on BIG, IMPORTANT programs.

 

But none of that was what she really wanted.

Meet Katy - a product designer in her 20s who’s gone beyond other people’s expectations and is now DESIGNING her own life.

MAN, did I learn a lot of good lessons from her in our interview!

 

  1. It’s Not Always About You

No matter how good we are, we all worry “What if no one WANTS my stuff?! What if...

How to Find People Who’ll Pay What You’re Worth

Aug 30, 2019

Imagine your car charger IS NOT WORKING…

And the battery on your phone is at 4% 

It’s all RED up there in the corner; panic’s settling into your brain.

Even though for YEARS you drove around without any phone because that shit was something you’d only seen available on THE JETSONS?!

But now you & your space phone are in a committed relationship, the only downside being its lifespan is essentially the same as a gnat’s.

 

You’re hurtling down the highway, sweating out a 4% battery.

How will you post on Instagram when you get to your next...

You’re Not Too Big for Your Britches

Aug 28, 2019
 

Most women I work with undervalue themselves. They ask, What more do I need to LEARN to become valuable? 

Because the more valuable we are, the more we can charge.

We’re asking the wrong question, my friend!

Instead of What do I need to learn? we need to ask,

 

  • What results do I get for my people?

 

In other words: HOW do you make your clients’ lives BETTER for them?

(Pssst: You may feel like you’re bragging if you answer. I assure you – confidence & arrogance are worlds apart!)

This example will help:

You’re an incredible interior...

How I Learned My Real Value

Aug 26, 2019
 

About 14 years ago, I had a moment that transformed how I valued myself. Everything in my life changed after that…

I’d been a high school teacher for 6 years at the time. I’d just gotten a new job at a new high school and was fairly intimidated.

My colleagues were INCREDIBLY smart & accomplished. I thought my new department chair was a brilliant visionary.

And all year long, I sat in meeting after meeting where we GOT NOTHING DONE.

These people - brilliant as they were - just flung ideas around. Everything was “What if we tried THIS”? Or “Oohhhh,...

Why People Aren’t Paying You - Yet

Your car charger IS NOT WORKING!

And the battery on your phone is at 4%!

It’s all RED up there in the corner, and panic’s settling into your brain.

Even though for YEARS you drove around without any phone because that shit was something you’d only seen available on THE JETSONS?!

But now you & your space phone are in a committed relationship, the only downside being its lifespan is essentially the same as a gnat’s.

"I won’t get it anyway, so why bother?" with Lynn Bowser

Aug 18, 2019
 

The struggle is what gives you a good story, in the end.

And if that’s true, then Lynn Bowser should write a frickin’ book!

In case you live in a cave, finance is a male-dominated industry.

 And Lynn, then a wealth management agent, felt like a huuuuuge imposter in a field filled with men who went about business V E R Y differently than she did.

The language they used felt foreign. When she used their words, she felt ridiculous.

The strategies they used felt aggressive. When she tried their tactics, she felt out of integrity.

The outcome? Major struggles with confidence...

How to Stop Suffering from Analysis Paralysis

Aug 11, 2019

Last week I talked about the paradigm of giving great free content & creating a ton of value in the world - before anyone pays you a dime.

You know - helping people to prove you can help people.

I was answering the question, “Why do you give so much away for free?”

I won’t re-iterate everything but the short answer is:

Because that’s how the marketplace works these days.

Remember: people don’t pay for information. They pay for TRANSFORMATION.

 

At the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey, I didn’t understand this concept fully. I was suspect...
