A few quick question for you to ponder…

  • Are you are sitting on a gold mine of a business, but need help turning the vision into reality?
  • Can you see the vision, but not 100% sure of the path that will take you there?
  • Do you think it would be cool to have not just my brain, but my entire team’s brain, on your business to accelerate your success?

The Leveraged Continuum

March 23rd, 2018|Business Strategy, Business Vision, Conscious Business|0 Comments

Read Time: 2 minutes

Recently, I have been having conversations on what is means to be leveraged – the yearning for more freedom, impact, ease and money.

This prompted me to create the 2.0 version of my 9 Tenets of a Leveraged Business, a super cool tool for determining where you are on your path to more freedom and leveraged income.  I call it the Leverage Continuum.

What’s in it for you? Awareness. Honesty. Truth. Inspiration.

Because leverage is the key to what I believe you are wanting… […]

How To Weather The Storm In Your Business

March 20th, 2018|Business Growth, Business Strategy, Conscious Business, eLearning|3 Comments

Read Time: 5 minutes

As humans, we are going to become sick, have to be there for loved ones and hit rough patches that throw us off our game and take us out of our business.  The problem is, most businesses can’t weather the storm. When life happens, too often the sales dry up, projects come to a screeching halt, and the momentum you worked so hard to create is lost.

So how can you weather whatever life throws you and keep the money flowing and the clients happy?

The answer… Leverage.

“Without leverage, you don’t have a business, you have a JOB.”

Since 1990, I’ve been fascinated with how to create leverage in our businesses. That was the year my dad visited our California home, where Mario and I operated our business at the time. After two days of witnessing us working like dogs, he pulled me aside and gave me my first lesson in leverage.

The Heart of Any Biz Strategy

First a question for you to ponder, as you read through this blog…

Who is really running your business… you or your inner critic?

With 7 business start-ups under my belt, and now, as I’m about to relaunch one of my existing businesses, I know first-hand how the inner critic can raise its ugly head whenever we go for a big, juicy and significant goal.

While the message ranges from a small whisper of doubt to defining self-criticism, the inner critic’s messages are typically born out of fear, doubt, worry, overwhelm or guilt. […]

Today’s blog was inspired by a client who recently closed multiple six figures in business – approximately one third of her entire 2017 sales.

When she came to me last year, she was exhausted, constantly […]

Equip Yourself to be the CEO You Need to be

I’ve got good news and bad news…

The bad news is… the odds are stacked against you.

80% of small businesses fail in the first 3 years and of that 80%, 50% fail in the first year. If that’s not bad enough, of those who make it past the 5-year mark, another 80% will fail before year ten.

While poor management, lack of capital and ineffective marketing are often blamed, those are not the root cause of all this failure. […]

If yes, you are not alone. But, what if you could change all that with a simple waive of your magic wand? What if a little bit of structure brought you loads of freedom? It’s possible! […]

Managing A Rock Star Virtual Team

January 30th, 2018|Business Growth, Business Management, Leadership|0 Comments

I’ve noticed a theme, in my client coaching sessions, that I sense is important for you to hear.

The bigger your vision, the more things need to get done and the more crucial it is to have a fantastic support team. A great team allows you to focus on your Zones of Genius – doing what you love and creating BIG results.

Thing is, most entrepreneurs have never been taught to build and lead a team – let alone do so virtually.

After selling our first business, where I had 22 employees, a two story building and a ton of Human Resource headaches and expenses, Mario and I swore to “Go Lean or Go Home,” from that point forward. So, suffice it to say that since that day, I’ve had to get really good at attracting, building and leading a virtual support team, and today I am blessed with an unstoppable team. […]

Five Take-Aways from Best Year Yet Journey

Read Time: 6 minutes

It’s early here in California. A soft colorful glow fills the room from the lights on the Christmas tree and Michael Buble is crooning from the Bose, wishing me a Merry Little Christmas.

I love this time of year, don’t you? It’s a time of reflecting, connecting and looking to what we want our lives to be, in the year that lies ahead. So, it’s fitting that I bring this 2 week blog series to a close with a few reflections, and more importantly a couple questions.

Whether you read every blog, shared your experience with me or watched from a distance and took what you needed in silence, I appreciate you being there. Having over 2000 of you with me on this Best Year Yet Journey called me to a higher level of awareness and accountability and for that, I am grateful. […]

The Truth About Business Today

Shhhh… can you hear it?

It’s the knocking of the knees and the chattering of the teeth of gurus, around the world, who have been touting their “get-rich-quick” and “anyone-can-do-this” products and programs, and then, failing to deliver.

They’re nervous because they know you’re on to them. They see that the masses are becoming immune to their hyped-out presentations and their high-pressure pitches and demanding solid, research-based solutions for growing a business. […]
