7 Ways to Speak with 2 Big Payoffs

7 Ways to Speak with 2 Big Payoffs

My niece Margot just turned a year old and she is starting to say words. Everyone around her repeats “What does a dog say,” and she puts her little lips together to make a “ruff ruff” sound. She is so excited and encouraged to SPEAK. When did we stop losing that excitement to speak? When did we stop dimming our power to vocalize our truth? Many of my clients ask me how to speak more because they know they can reach more people through speaking. Many women I know are afraid to speak and keep telling themselves that when they lose weight then they will get on stage. Or when they have more experience then they will speak. Or when they have a bigger message then they will be ready.  Are you making any of those excuses? You are ready now. Your experiences, expertise and soul purpose are all right here, right now, and it’s time to speak NOW. Why? What are the payoffs? Payoff #1: Speaking is one of the fastest paths to cash. Payoff #2: It’s also how you make the difference you want in the world. You impact more people when you speak to groups rather than just one-on-one. You put those two things together and it’s bliss.How do you get started? Telesummits – Be a guest on one or host your own. A Telesummit is a collection of speakers that are sharing their expertise around a central topic.The four benefits to a Telesummit are: 1. The host grows their list in a big way. 2. The experts get exposure to each others list, which also grows their...

The Secret that Sabotages or Sets You Free

I had an amazing conversation two weeks ago with the beautiful Karen Graves of Your Sales Fix. She is the ideal blend of identifying what is really blocking you in your business and bridging the gap with a powerful SALES skill set. It was so synergistic because we both shared our values and what is important to us in business partnerships. Actually this applies to any kind of partnership. If we hadn’t shared from our authentic space we wouldn’t have seen how we can truly be collaborative partners. If we had kept our authenticity and sharing our full gifts with each other we would have been robbed of a great connection that will turn into an opportunity in the future. Are you hiding your gifts? Sharing the full power of your authentic gifts will set you free. If you hold back you will ultimately sabotage your business. Karen and I have this synergy of supporting women from an authentic, spiritual and strategic place. We believe, and have experienced, that in order to have your success sustainable, long-term, fulfilling and absolutely brilliant you have to have two things: 1-Skill Set and 2-Mindset. Mindset is a general term that also encompasses your confidence, spiritual connection and soul purpose. You get the idea right? You have many gifts and the moment you think “I can’t share that one because it’s too much, or too woo-woo or too whatever,” you are cutting yourself off from making a difference for people, from money and from full self expression. And without full self expression, you start hiding your brilliance and become hidden. And that my...
5 Ways Coldplay Can Help Your Biz (yes the rock band)

5 Ways Coldplay Can Help Your Biz (yes the rock band)

As I was dancing to the music having a grand time at the Coldplay concert a couple weeks ago in Seattle, I couldn’t help but notice some brilliant fan-building and profit-generating strategies that Coldplay did for their business. Here are five things to pay attention to in your biz. Thanks Coldplay for being a brilliant example of successful business in action. #1 – Treat it Like a Business As a huge fan of live events, I’m amazed at the number of people it must take to make a concert happen. The security, the venue negotiation, the travel, the stage set up, the cameras, the lights, the publicity, the marketing, the radio station partnerships… this production takes hundreds of people and at least over a year of solid work. Is Chris Martin, Coldplay’s lead singer, creating the marketing plan? Or maybe the drummer is calling venues around the world to check open dates for shows. Are you kidding me? They show up. They do their thing. They show up like it’s their party and they do what they are meant to do! They show up at the next location and do it again. They do what they do brilliantly well and delegate the rest.  How to apply it: Are you doing what you do brilliantly? Or are you managing too many things so it’s diluting your brilliance? What do you need to delegate?   #2 – Engage with Your Audience As I walked through the security check at the concert venue there was a guy holding these funky looking bracelets. He greeted everyone like this “Coldplay wants you to put on this bracelet because...

  Wow! Last week my newsletter was titled “I’m a Fraud” and it covered my own fears and breakdowns I experience as I live my dream. Ironic isn’t it? The feedback from people has been astounding. Your words of gratitude have been pouring in as I shared my vulnerability with you. We all are in the same boat together. A mastermind member of mine shared a video of Brene Brown with me that talked about vulnerability and it’s amazing.  It’s 20 minutes long but it’s so worth it. It’s quite remarkable. Take some soul time and watch it today. Wow! Last week my newsletter was titled “I’m a Fraud” and it covered my own fears and breakdowns I experience as I live my dream. Ironic isn’t it? The feedback from people has been astounding. Your words of gratitude have been pouring in as I shared my vulnerability with you. We all are in the same boat together. I’ve been evolving spiritually and emotionally a lot this year so the past few weeks have called for a little more soul time. I’m taking more time to meditate and write. I’m getting two massages a month to really integrate the changes on a physical level. I’m breathing more. I got a new journal for my soul writings. Isn’t it beautiful!? The metal latch on the side and the metallic embossed cover make it magical. June is jam packed with amazing things so I know I need some more down time now to fully show up next month with everything...
I’m A Fraud (Can I Really Say That?)

I’m A Fraud (Can I Really Say That?)

I’m a fraud.  Have you ever felt like that?   I’m scared. Have you felt like that today?   I don’t want to do this. I can’t do this. Is that something you have told yourself this week?   Here is the truth: (I told you, I’m going to be raw, real and totally transparent.) There are some days I wake up and I don’t want to get on the computer. I don’t want to write my newsletter. I don’t want to get on the phone. I don’t want to make sales calls. Then I argue with myself because I know that unless I’m making sales, I’m not in business. And having a hobby isn’t what I signed up for. Some days I feel like a wanna-be-preneur instead of an actual entrepreneur. I figure things out as I go, teaching what I can as I go to others who are teachable. I get afraid of what people will think. I get bored with my message. I question if I’m doing all I can for my clients. I wonder how I can “compete” with other people in my market. I wonder what really makes me different or if it’s all in my head. Will my friends will be by my side through the whole thing? Will my husband? Will I stay be my side? Will I follow my intuition? Or let my perception of what I think people want dictate what I do? Will I get stuck? If so, for how long. I feel the pressure of being a certain way and if I have a bad day, can I share...

Last week I was in the beautiful city of Seattle, Washington to see Coldplay in concert. Coldplay wasn’t coming to Utah so my husband and I used that as an excuse to take a mini holiday.  And it was brilliant. I loved it. The really cool part is when Coldplay did their encore, they made a surprise appearance in the audience and it was about 20 feet away from me. I don’t tend to get star struck per se, but it was amazing to see talent up, close and personal. (The pic to the left is my hubby and I eagerly waiting for the show to begin.) I can’t help but have my marketing brain on most of the time. I look at the world through this filter of “how did they do this?” or “What strategy did they implement, either on purpose or accidentally?” I observe how people did things so I can apply it to my own business if it makes sense and I can teach my clients something new they can use. In next week’s newsletter, I’ll be sharing the four tips I learned from Coldplay that you can implement into your business to make more money by creating raving loyal...
