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).

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

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.”

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Are You Being Consistent In Your Biz?

Let’s talk why consistency is crucial and how to maintain it…

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 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.
