Harness the Power of Purposeful Planning

December 27th, 2016|Business Planning, Business Vision|0 Comments

whats-your-planFor 28 years, I have been using a powerful 4-step planning process I learned from my dad way back in 1998.

But before I dive in, I am curious about something….

A Message Meant For You

October 31st, 2016|Big Finish Challenge, Business Planning, Vision|2 Comments

letting_go____by_senyanToday marks the final day of the Big Finish Challenge and I am feeling grateful to have had you with us. Whether you read the blogs and shared your experiences or watched from a distance and took what you needed in silence, I appreciate you being along for the ride. Having you with me and John called us both to a higher level of awareness and accountability and for that, we are grateful.

As I often do on a Monday morning, today I ended my morning practice with an inquiry. At the top of a page in my journal I wrote the question… “What do you want me to know?” It’s a simple open-ended question that I often pose to God as a way of tapping into a greater source of wisdom and knowing. […]

The Secret To Humanizing Your Selling Experience

October 27th, 2016|Big Finish Challenge, Conscious Business, Marketing Innovation|0 Comments

raining-moneySo far this week we’ve invited you to take an honest look at your relationship to selling. We do this because it’s your unspoken fear, discomfort, frustration or even disdain for selling, that is actually keeping you from stepping out, playing big and creating the sales you want.

It’s this invitation for you to explore what’s holding you back in sales, that has conjured up memories of a time (just three years ago) when I had to take a hard look at where we were with our own sales process. Our year-long mastermind offered an impressive 6 months to 6 figures path, clients were making huge strides and I loved providing the one thing every entrepreneur needs to succeed… one-on-one consulting. But despite all this, the sales weren’t rocking – at least not at the rate we wanted. […]

How To Fall In Love With “Selling”

October 26th, 2016|Big Finish Challenge, Entrepreneurial Mindset, Personal Growth, Sales|2 Comments

in-loveGiven the positive feedback we received on John’s beautiful blog, I thought I would stay on this vein and continue to explore what might be holding you back from being the sales rock star I know you can be. After all, one promise of the Big Finish Challenge was to unearth what may be holding you back in business and create a new relationship to it so it loses its limiting power over you.

So here we go…

As I sat with John’s invitation to take an honest look at the fears we hold around “marketing and sales,” I was reminded of another fear that grips nearly every entrepreneur I’ve worked with. It’s actually the same fear I’ve danced with in each of my 7 businesses as I navigated the early stages of growth. […]

Do You Suffer from F.O.B.B?

October 25th, 2016|Big Finish Challenge, Entrepreneurial Mindset, Inspiration|8 Comments

baby-feetFew things come out fully formed. You didn’t. I didn’t. Habits, ideas, butterflies, skills, homes, pebbles, frogs, businesses, relationships… all these things take time. In order to reach a state of “perfection,” they need time to interact with the causes and conditions of the world around them.

In fact, it can be argued that all things are in a continual state of process, a process of becoming (or a process of going). And on some very real level, we understand this. […]

boy-successAs we round the corner toward our last week of the Big Finish Challenge I am reflecting on the journey thus far. In week 1, we had you pick a significant goal you want to achieve by year end. In week 2, we had you lean into the power of planning and get clear about what you needed to do to achieve your Big Finish goal. In week 3, we equipped you with my seven entrepreneurial archetypes and asked you to step powerfully into your genius over a period of seven days. It’s been a blast and John and I have loved having you along for the ride. […]

Who do you need to be to get to where you want to go?

October 18th, 2016|Big Finish Challenge, Business Vision, Coaching, Maintaining Mindset, Vision|0 Comments

QuoteHey, you. You know that I know about you?

I know you’re up to big shit and you’re creating important things. I know this is true because you’re in this challenge reading this blog.

Now, the bigness you’re up to and the things you’re building might be important only to you… or they might be destined to have an impact on a larger community. But small or large, personal or shared, groundbreaking or conventional, if it’s in your heart, if it’s coming through you, then it’s significant and necessary. […]

Turn-up The Volume on YOU!

October 17th, 2016|Uncategorized|2 Comments

volumeOne of the things I love about owning my business is that each day brings a myriad of opportunities to tap into different aspects of my gifts and strengths. But let’s face it, it can also be a lot! On a daily – even hourly – basis we are required to shift gears and perform tasks that are as varied as the items on our “to do” list. It’s an element of entrepreneurship that can send some into overwhelm or others to the sofa in an effort to shut out the countless demands of business ownership.

So back in 2010, after a year of playing with the concept of archetypes in my personal coaching with John, I began to look at my role as an entrepreneur from a new perspective.  What I noticed is that throughout the day, there were a number of roles I needed to step into depending on what was on my calendar.  In the stretch of a few hours I might be called upon to coach a client, close a sale, strategize with a team member or decide on a budget for an upcoming campaign.  What I needed was a way to consciously move from role to role so that I could be present to what was needed and access that part of my genius to step powerfully into that role.
