Discover Your Superpowers: A Peek Into Human Design for Business with Kris Prochaska

*Let’s pretend that peek is spelled correctly in the above image. 🙂 Knowing my Human Design was a huge revelation for my business (and my life) so much so that I have every client discover their Human Design so I can support them even better. This is NOT about fitting yourself in a box. What this IS about is identifying your energy with more clarity so you can actualize your life and business with more ease and with fewer pitfalls. During this training, Kris talked about how she can spot projectors easily when her friends have kids over to play. The projectors are the kids who are observing -checking things out. They may have the solution or idea, but until they are invited, they don’t know where there place is. This hit home for me big-time. In fact, it brings tears to my eyes as I write this because as a kid, I always wondered what was wrong with me and why I couldn’t just go into a circle of kids and make things happen. So I had fewer friends, I had smaller circles than a lot of people. Even now, I know a lot of people, but my inner circle is small. It’s only been the last five years that I’ve seen how this is a gift, and not something that makes me weird. Projectors “wait to be invited.” And then sometimes when we are invited, we say yes because it feels so good to be invited, rather than it’s something that truly aligns with our heart’s desires. If you are a projector, then hear this: your universal...
How to Amplify Connections in Your Business with Guest Shannon Hernandez

How to Amplify Connections in Your Business with Guest Shannon Hernandez

SOULpreneurs from five countries joined Shannon Hernandez and I on this training! As a natural connector, it’s easy to see how to pair people up with solutions for their life and business. I have people who tell me years after attending one of my events that the people they connected to are still people they do business with. It’s just what I do. Over the holidays this past year, after the president of the US was announced, I spent several weeks in deep thought. I was asking myself this question: what can I do to make a difference. The importance of connection, collaboration, and community came up over and over again. So I made the commitment to have more connection chats with people. After all, relationships are what a successful and sustainable business are built upon. But as a natural connector, I’ve been burned out by a lack of reciprocal connections or even thank-yous. The other challenge I’ve experienced with connection chats as I call them, or potential JV chats is the lack of reciprocity in how we can support each other. Over the years, I have done a lot of introductions and connections and not received the same level of effort. My primary love language is Words of Affirmation, so I know that not receiving a thank-you for the connections I make probably makes a bigger impact on me. Additionally, as a connector one of the shadows is you are so busy doing all of the connecting, you aren’t building your own business. It can be common to do the connecting but not receive anything back from people, even a...

Why I left Ontraport (and InfusionSoft) and how I streamlined my business

Summary: If you want to skip to the highlights, you can scroll down to the very bottom of this post. This post includes a lot of info and I created it to help people who were like me who were searching for detailed and honest reviews of Ontraport, InfusionSoft, ConvertKit, WooCommerce, LearnDash, MemberVault and ThriveCart. Please do your due diligence on anything you invest in your business. I’m sharing the following details to simply give some insight and possibilities of how you can run your online business without using systems that add up to be the equivelenat of a car payment if you’re not actually ready for those systems. When I mention ConvertKit, MemberVault and ThriveCart below, I’m including my affiliate link. You do not have to use the link below and can simply google the software that I mention below. From InfusionSoft to Ontraport to ConvertKit I enrolled in InfusionSoft at a 3-day event I attended after being enamored with the presentation about making money while you sleep with a fabulous online funnel. The only problem was I didn’t have much of an online business and made the majority of my money through the clients enrolled from hosting my own events and through speaking. I essentially paid $297 a month for a few years to essentially send my newsletters. #expensivenewsletters I see a lot of business owners doing the same thing. But when you get so wrapped up in a system like that, it’s daunting to leave and migrate to another system. Here’s the non sugar-coated version of why I left InfusionSoft: I didn’t like the vibe and...
Big Magic: How to Create From Your Dream List

Big Magic: How to Create From Your Dream List

I will be sharing the stage with Elizabeth Gilbert next month in Seattle at an event called Connect: Transform What Really Matters hosted by Darla LeDoux. My eyes leak a little when I really think about this. I’m delighted, honored, and so excited to share my message about Courage. This book has changed my life. I’ve recommended it to hundreds of people and bought for close to a dozen people. Listening to it is my favorite – it’s just Liz and I doing the dishes or running errands. One of my favorite parts of the book is when she says if you aren’t creating something, you are destroying something. Our creative energy has to go somewhere and what I know is that when I’m not using that energy to create what I desire, I create a whole lotta drama and struggle in my life. When I’m not in the flow of my own life, then I am destroying part of my truth in order to live the lie that I can’t have what I really desire. When I don’t create, I justify my limitations. I have to “think” about things instead of choose IN and move. I stall out. I delay my dreams. And then I judge the hell out of myself for falling into that trap again.  Damn am I grateful I do this far less often as I used to! When I’m not in the flow of my own life, I am destroying part of my truth in order to live the lie that I can’t have what I really desire. I’ve been a little obsessed with...
