Episode 35: Simplify Your Business Model with guest Dana Corey

Connect with Dana and receive her free e-book “Are you selling one of the 5 things people pay money for?” www.DanaCorey.com Dana takes business owners, entrepreneurs and turns them into CEOs of their business. She feels strongly that you need to do your business model, not her business model. The first stage of being an entrepreneur is to create a job for yourself, some are okay with just that, but others want more. When others want more they begin asking themselves, am I satisfied? Is this what I want? Am I waking up with joy and am I doing what I want? Before they start to expand, they start here. The second question is what kind of person would I hire to help? The best way to find the right person for you, is to look at the person, not what they are offering. There has to be a connection.  Are they flexible enough, where they allow me to grow in the way I need to- instead of creating me into a duplicate of themselves. Dana is in the business of transformation. Real transformation takes time and intimate conversations over time. Lasting inspiration and motivation is transformation. You can get addicted to the immediate motivation/inspiration. You have to be more committed to trusting yourself than in believing that there is going to be some magic pill to save you. You have to be willing to not be liked. Real transformation can get hinged upon our need to be nice or liked by others. You have to be willing to challenge the status quo, to be hated, to be provocative. Even...

Six Coaching Myths + 15 things I Know for Sure

(You can listen to this below too) I’ve been in business for almost ten years and I’ve seen a lot and learned a lot in this industry. The first time I seriously considered getting out of the coaching biz was in 2012 when I burned my business down. (That’s another story for another day.) I was disheartened by what I was seeing as the “norm,” particularly in the live event space. It was a wake-up call for me to assess what I wanted to create in my business, with my clients, and in the world. These were just some of the questions I had from the models I saw: Was there another way to make money that wasn’t based on ‘overcoming objections’ and convincing people to buy stuff? Could people make 5- and 6-figure paydays from their live events without the fear-based selling? Could I create a leveraged business model that still had a high-touch component with my clients? Was the only way to grow my business to get a fancy brick and mortar office and hire full-time staff? Did I have to post the lifestyle shots on social media that showed everyone how great my life was? After considering these questions and finding a path that resonated much better with me, I’ve come a long way and I’ve seen a lot in this industry. There are a few coaching myths that I just don’t buy into. I’d love to hear your thoughts below on this post or in my Facebook group. Myth #1: Charge what you’re worth. You are an infinite being, how can you possibly charge what...
Doors are Open for Magic

Doors are Open for Magic

Happy New Year! Today, I’m sharing my favorite two questions to ask when I’m creating something in my business and an invitation to join me in more magic in your business. This New Years was no different than what my hubby and I have done for the last decade (by choice). My hubby and I hosted a New Year’s party and at the stroke of midnight, we sang happy birthday for my hubby! (He’s a Jan 1 baby.) Then the next day we had lunch where we asked each other two questions I always ask people on their birthday: What were your favorite things about the past year? What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming year? This isn’t about resolutions, it’s about acknowledging what we’ve created so we can create an even more expanded future than we’ve thought possible. As we both shared our favorite things and what we’re creating this year, I was overcome with gratitude that we have created the relationship where we can do this with each other. This year, one of our targets is to bring him home from his job. Why do we do this process every year with each other? What we acknowledge we can change. What we judge, stays solid and cannot change. If you’re looking at your 2017 and hoping for things to be different, start with acknowledging what occurred and what is occurring, then share your gratitude for it. Then CHOOSE what you’d like to change. After decades of doing just about every ritual you can think of to “manifest” abundance (aka money but I never called...
