Are You Asking The Right Questions In Your Business?

This week I want to talk to you about focusing on how we can give value, and asking the right questions in your business!
We’re used to asking questions like:
– How can I add 1,000 people to my list?
– How can I make 10K per month?
– How can I sign 6 new clients?
However, a tip I learned from the amazing Margaret Lynch that has transformed my business, is that instead of asking those questions I ask how I can give value commiserate with that. In other words:
– How can I give value to 1,000 new people?
– How can I give 10k worth of value per month?
– How can I give 6 new people a life + business changing experience?

The Hardest Email I've Ever Written

I recently sent an email to my list that was the hardest email I’ve ever written. Not because I had anything bad to say, but because I had something GREAT to say and I often fall short on tooting my own horn (I’m sure many of you can relate)!
I’ve been talking to my Facebook group this week about how if we don’t believe in our own value and regularly talk about it no one else will be able to see it (i.e. we won’t be able to grow our business, sign those clients, etc.), and while I’m sure this was helpful for the women in the group, it was also an AHA moment for me!
I realized that though I believe very much in my own value, I don’t spend a lot of time shouting it from the rooftops, and if I don’t, who else will? We have to be our own biggest cheerleader before others can be. So I’d love to share with you some things you might not know about me…

I'm Spilling My Secrets To Attracting Your Next Paying Client!

Hint: I’m all about giving value, not being salesy!

Today, I want to share with you an interview I recently did with the amazing Olivia Charlet when I was asked to participate in her “How To Attract Your Next Paying Client” Interview Series.
I was so excited to get to talk to her, and share with all of you exactly what I did to attract paying clients and what my take is on content, messaging, giving value, etc!

Let's Talk About Money, Honey!

I’ve had lots of questions recently about how I’ve been able to consistently bring in five-figure months since my second month in business, so I’m spilling one of my secrets, which is that a huge part of it (besides taking the right action of course!) has been setting intentions.
A wonderful mentor of mine told me quite some time ago that “money flows where it has a purpose”. That has always stuck with me, and has become a huge part of my practice in my business.
That is why I started creating intentions around the money I want to bring in. I decide how much I desire to make in the upcoming months, assign where every penny of it will go, and then I get really unattached to HOW it will happen.

Is YOUR Waiting List Waiting?

You all know that I am obsessed with content and I think it’s the #1 way to grow your business.
However, I did a lot of reflecting as the year came to a close and really evaluated what worked and what didn’t for myself and my clients this year. What I ultimately discovered is that content is a great tool {ok, it’s seriously THE best}, but it’s nothing without mindset work, strategy, and execution behind it! 
You can’t create killer content unless your mindset is in the right place {i.e. you see yourself as an expert}. You can’t use that content to grow your business unless you have a strategy behind it {i.e. how you’re delivering it and to whom}. And finally, you can’t use that content to get clients + cash unless you’re willing to execute {i.e. your mindset is strong, your strategy is in place, and you use those to go out and make shit happen}.

Do you know what you’re taking with you into 2016?

Last week we talked goal-setting, but this week was all about reflection. As the New Year starts it is so important to reflect on all that’s been gained, learned, and left behind in the previous year.
I made several lists this week to really evaluate all that happened in 2015. I’d love to encourage you to make these same lists to really reflect and gain valuable insight to take with you into the New Year. The lists were as follows:

  1. How my mindset has changed
  2. What’s transformed in my life + business
  3. What worked
  4. What didn’t
  5. What I accomplished + what I supported my clients to accomplish

I won’t share all of them with you, but I’d love to share just a few. Here are my lists of what worked and what didn’t work. What I took away most from these two lists is that the true road to success is a total COMBINATION of the inner work and the outer hustle. (more…)

Will Your Goals Become Your Reality In 2016?

That is totally up to you…

This past week I was laser-focused on mapping out my goals for the upcoming year. I know these are goals that I CAN and WILL meet because I consistently implement a combination of emotional support, mindset work, and serious strategy into my business.
Now I’m going to share with you exactly how I do my goal-setting, so that you can start to focus on your 2016 goals.
We’re going to talk:

  • Picking a word + getting your mindset right
  • Setting quarterly goals
  • Breaking your goals into small, actionable steps
  • My planner recommendations

Is Done Really Better Than Perfect?

Yes, Definitely!

This week I want to talk to you about a topic that has been coming up a ton lately with the women I coach. This is the idea that “done is better than perfect”. I want to talk about how to drop the need for perfection and just get moving anyway, which will make all the difference in your business, your content, and your success.
The ability to put content out and make decisions even when it doesn’t feel PERFECT also seems to be one of the things that really separates those that end up finding success + flow and those that end up just burning out. All too often we want to make sure EVERY move we make in our business is PERFECT, and it ends up causing us major stress, keeps us from moving forward, and keeps success + visibility just out of reach.
So let’s talk about how you can incorporate this into your business:

I want more women to have these goosebumps…

AND obviously more clients + cash!
I have been feeling extra high vibe and thankful this week, and have been spending a lot of time reflecting on how different my life looks now than it did just over 2 years ago.
The me of 2+ years ago was SUPER stressed and overwhelmed during the holidays and NEVER took time off because I wanted my employees to be able to take the time. I would run around like crazy, and always ended up buying Christmas presents on Christmas Eve (after I left work that is). I even forgot to get my husband a Christmas card 2 years in a row.

This year I have the extreme pleasure of making my own schedule, not living in burn out mode, and getting to truly ENJOY what the holidays are really about rather than just rushing through them.

Transform Your Biz With Gratitude + Celebration

I’m sharing how it’s worked for me, and what actionable steps you can take right now!

Since it was Thanksgiving Week here in the U.S. I am going to be slightly cheesy and talk about the role of gratitude and celebrating in your business, which I am certain is one of the main components to consistent success in business.

Cultivating a mindset of gratitude is so crucial when you’re an entrepreneur. We get to choose how we see things in our business and we get to control what shows up in our business based on our level of gratitude for what we already have.
At the beginning of my business I offered an assessment and remember telling my husband how bummed I was that only 10 women signed up as I really thought more would be interested.
As soon as it came out of my mouth I realized how ridiculous it sounded, and how ungrateful I was being for the 10 women that WERE interested. As soon as I shifted my thinking to being grateful for the 10 women I GOT to talk to (instead of whining about the 15 that I wanted) I had a total transformation.

How are you showing up in your business? Plus My Personal Story

This week I want to talk to you about how you SHOW UP in your business, and what PARTS of you show up in your business. I am talking about this from a very personal perspective, as it is something I continue to learn, evolve into, and sometimes struggle with in my own business.
Showing up in your business, not just with consistency but on a personal level can feel scary, difficult to navigate and overwhelming. It can be so challenging to demonstrate all these parts of you through your business, but it is also essential to creating that know, like, and trust factor and really engaging your audience and transforming your business.

I’ve never shared this before…But it’s time!
Today I want to tell you a really personal story that I’ve been putting off sharing with you all for far too long. I love to connect, give great content, and enjoy working with all of you more than you know, but one of the things that I’ve been holding back on sharing is my own success. Why is that? Probably a few reasons, but the reasons aren’t important. What IS important is that I’m doing it anyway.

Do You Really Know Your Niche?

 

This week I want to talk to you about how niching down and getting clear on your ideal client is a way to see serious results in your biz.

We’re going to talk:

  • Why it’s so important
  • How it trips a lot of people up at the beginning, and what to do instead
  • Doing ideal client interviews in your business
  • How to infuse YOU into your content + writing

Niching down and choosing an ideal client is so important because speaking to a specific client about how you help them deal with a specific problem is so crucial to creating a profitable business and building that know, like, and trust factor.

Ready To Cultivate Some Major Inspiration In Your Biz?

This week I want to talk to you about cultivating inspiration and using inspiration to drive your content creation and business plans.
We’re going to cover:

  • Why it’s so important
  • How to cultivate your inspiration
  • How to use your inspiration to drive your business planning
  • How to use inspiration as a motivator

Inspiration is crucial in your business. Inspiration is ultimately what drives us to get up in the morning and keep moving forward in our business, especially when we’re not seeing the results we want. For many entrepreneurs the reason they started their business is because they were inspired by something and felt a serious calling, so continuing to tap into that inspiration and that strong calling you feel is vital. Personally, I’m inspired by helping other women create a lit up life by building a business they love that shares their light and message – that inspires me and makes me want to get up every day.

Are You Being Consistent In Your Biz?

This week I wanted to share with you the importance of being consistent in sharing your content and showing up in your business. We’re going to talk why it’s so important, how to create your own definition of consistency, how to create a plan around your desired level of consistency, and how to use consistency as a relationship builder.
Consistency is so important because it is what ultimately creates a business. Showing up every day and taking the next right action and the next step is the ultimate driving force behind success. However, for many entrepreneurs there’s too much stop and start and then they don’t see the results of the effort they’re putting in, and they find themselves frustrated. However, the results won’t come before consistency is in place.
That is why creating your own definition of consistency is crucial. Ideally you’re showing up and consistently putting out content and being visible every day. However, that doesn’t work for everyone and sometimes that causes new entrepreneurs to stop before they start. The solution? Create your own definition of consistency and stick to it. Also, be sure to make it realistic and ensure that it fits your life and business.

Ready To Create + Plan Your Content In Advance?

I have been dying to share with you all how important it is to create and plan your content in advance! Planning your content accordingly and in advance removes the expectation that we so often put on ourselves to be creative and inspired on the spot. It also helps you be visible and drop the excuses for why you’re not putting yourself and your biz out there.
Here’s a fun affirmation to use for this:

I use a simple process for beginning to plan your content that involves creating categories and themes around your message. Categories are the top 5 areas surrounding your message. They have lots of different pieces to them and you could go on forever about these topics.

How To Create Your Magnetic Message

Creating your magnetic message is the first step to creating amazing content because great content can only come from a great message. The first thing you need to do is…
Get clear on what you do really well and lead with it
Many coaches or other service-based professionals help their clients in a variety of ways so they often have a real hesitation to lead with only one piece of what they help with. However, if you want to create a magnetic message I totally recommend it. I’m a business coach and I help my clients with ALL areas of their business, but I always lead with content creation. Why? Because I really excel at it and I feel strongly that this is the single most important piece to building an online presence and attracting your ideal clients. I also know that it’s the piece that sets me apart from other coaches and I know it’s the thing that makes my clients go “I NEED THAT”. Figure out what you really excel at and feel most passionate about out of all the things you help your clients with and lead with it. This is your first step in creating a magnetic message and starting to seriously attract clients.

How To Start Feeling Like You Have Worthwhile Content To Share

I want to talk about a mindset block that comes up a lot around content creation, and that is the feeling that you don’t have anything worthwhile to say. I often hear “I’d share and create content more, but I don’t have anything worthwhile to say”. Guess what? This is literally never true. We all have a unqiue story, outlook, knowledge, etc. We just have to get t past the mindset block and work on our worthiness! So what can you do? Here are my top five tips:

Freedom Is The New Black

 
Freedom is a huge theme in my life. It’s why I started my business. It’s why I’ve dedicated my life to help other women. It’s why I’m happy 98% of the day every day. In fact, feeling free is probably my top core desired feeling (see: Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte), and I make it a complete non-negotiable in my life. Yet, for a long time I didn’t feel free at all, and it really took a toll on my overall happiness and well-being. I had what should have been my “dream job” managing a $45 million/year non-profit but I felt like I was drowning all the time. I felt guilty every time I took a vacation, and usually spent the better part of that vacation checking my phone and answering emails. I knew I was meant for something more, but I had no idea what that was or what that felt like. I just knew there had to be more than the crazy commute, soul-sucking work place politics, and the feeling of never getting it all done.

The Weight of Perfection

A theme that has been coming up this week in several of my one-on-one client coaching sessions is the idea of perfection. As women entrepreneurs, or really just women in general, we often put these tremendous expectations on ourselves and no matter how much we accomplish we always feel like we fall short.
 
“I had a $10,000 week in my business, but I missed a date with a guy that had potential.”
“I spent time with my family and did some self-care, but I sent out my regular blog a day late.”
“I feel like I’m a good businesswoman but not always the best wife because I only make dinner for my husband every couple of weeks, and we don’t have sex all that often.”
“I have an amazing business idea and concept, but I know I’ll fail because I have no idea how to implement it.”

Why "I'll be happy when…" Is The Most Dangerous Thing You Can Say

I used to be the queen of “I’ll be happy when…” I’ll be happy when I get a promotion. I’ll be happy when I finish this degree. I’ll be happy when I lose 5 lbs. The list could go on forever, but guess what? I did all of those things, and I still wasn’t happy. I was confused, upset, and frustrated. I had to do a ton of soul-searching and get happy FIRST before any of those things could truly add any level of joy or feelings of success into my life.
I did a tremendous amount of work on my mindset in order to find my happiness on the inside, rather than on the outside. One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from James Allen when he says, “Circumstances do not make the man. They merely reveal him to himself.” That was exactly what was taking place in my life. My circumstances weren’t causing me to be unhappy, but my mindset was. My circumstances and unhappiness were simply revealing to me a mindset that was no longer serving me.Quote10

A Case For Entrepreneurship

 
When I first began designing my coaching business I had trouble defining who my ideal client was. I felt most called and qualified to work with women entrepreneurs after running my own successful businesses and completing my M.B.A. However, I also felt that there were already a tremendous amount of coaches focused on entrepreneurs and I wondered about the women in corporate America that needed assistance. I toyed with this idea for awhile, and spent time considering how I could help and support women that didn’t want to (or were unwilling to) leave their corporate careers. After much soul-searching I realized that I was meant to help women entrepreneurs because I really believe there is a tremendous case to be made for entrepreneurship.
Now I know this will ruffle some feathers, and that most would claim that certain people aren’t cut out to be entrepreneurs. They’d talk about scarcity and how everyone couldn’t possibly start (or run) their own business. However, I would disagree. I believe our corporate world no longer supports fulfillment, work-life balance, or freedom. It’s clear that the only way to guarantee these things is to create them for yourself by building your own business. If you truly consider it, I bet you would be very hard-pressed to think of anyone you know that totally loves, is fulfilled by, and has freedom in his or her job (unless they work for themselves).
