What You Want, Wants You The ONE Question that changed everything last year

What You Want, Wants You The ONE Question that changed everything last year

“When you specify what you’re grateful for it becomes more real and sensual. And from that sincere feeling you will become more emotive — and what you emote, you attract.” ~Danielle LePorte My big question of 2012 was “What do I REALLY want?” I changed a lot of things in my life and business last year because of those five simple words. It wasn’t what I think I should want. Not what my mentor wants. Not what my husband wants. Not what I THINK anyone wants for me or from me. What do I really want from the depth of my soul? Most people answer this question from the space of “What do I think I can get,” which really says ‘what do I think I’m worthy of receiving.’ And if you are answering this question from that space, then your business and bank account are suffering. When you ask the question and really listen to the answer, you’ll get it. You may be downright scared of the answer. Your answers may be the thing you are afraid to say out loud. It the thing that makes your heart race a little bit. That thing that makes you want to laugh it off so you feel more comfortable. I didn’t like some of the answers I was getting. But my SOUL loved it. Until you do this in your business, your business won’t be authentically you. In this age of technology and social media and YouTube and phone apps and mobile marketing… there is a lot of white noise. Is your business part of the white noise out there? Or it is something that people are stopping to pay attention to because...

Would you make it on American Idol Business Version? 8 Ways to Build Your Biz + Attract Raving Fans

I have a confession. I love American Idol. I cry. I talk to the TV when I disagree with the judges or I’m cheering for the underdog. I’m amazed at the crazy people who think they can sing and sound terrible. Guess what? Every single one of us are auditioning every single day on the business version of American Idol.  Instead of four judges telling us if we pass or not, we have thousands of eyes on our business judging if they will pay for our services. Those eyes who glance at our social media, email and other invitations. Those eyeballs are connected to problems who want to be solved, and they are connected to wallets. And if those folks like what they see, then they’ll keep us around. If not, we’re out. Would your business make it? Or would you be cut in the first audition? Or do you make the first cut but when the pressure gets tough, you break down and the pressure affects your performance? This is real life folks. This isn’t an audition. If you don’t try again after the first round, then nothing changes, you remain that “hopeful” talent that is waiting to be discovered… …that family vacation you keep putting off never happens. …you keep wondering if your latest business idea will really take form or be replaced with the next idea. …your message will be kept the world’s best-kept secret. …the things you desire will be just that, desires, but they won’t take physical form. If you are a sucker for this kind of reality TV like I am, have you...
Does Your Movement Matter? +5 Ways to Get Clients this Month from Your Movement

Does Your Movement Matter? +5 Ways to Get Clients this Month from Your Movement

My favorite spot in Washington DC is the Lincoln Memorial. To stand on the steps that face the reflection pond where on August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared his “I Have a Dream” movement brings me to tears every single time. The larger-than-life statue of President Abraham Lincoln at the top of the stairs is so fitting since 100 years early Lincoln took action to abolish slavery. On my recent trip to DC last weekend I reflected on one thing that really impacted me. What is a deeper and more authentic expression of my own movement? I have admired Lincoln and Dr. King since as long as I can remember. I believe their soul’s work was to create a movement of equality and it has impacted me deeply. During the challenges in my own business and life I often reflect on their strength and courage to continue with my movement of empowering women to remember their greatness. Entrepreneurship is my chosen vehicle to do that. What is your movement? Have you dared to say that your movement doesn’t matter? Have you dared to say that YOU, just ONE person, can’t make a difference? All it takes is ONE person to spark possibility and lives are changed. Every moment starts with an idea. Infuse that idea with passion and action and you can create a community that rises together to impact more people. This is exactly what your business does. Your business has a powerful cause behind it and that cause is YOU and everything important to you. Every life experience you have contributes to your cause....
