Yesterday I hit a wall. An emotional wall, that is.

It was prompted by our weekly team gathering, during which I would share […]

Now that we are five weeks into 2017 I’m curious….

  • Was your January as profitable and productive as you imagined at the start of the New Year?

A Message Meant For You

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.

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

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 Your Vision Into A Plan

whats-your-planThe really cool thing about a vision is that it takes us to a place of possibility. With a clear, compelling, written vision for where we want to be at a certain time in the future, we can more easily chart our course on how to get there.

But how do you do that? How do you take a “right brain” expression of what your heart desires and turn it into an actionable plan that keeps you focused and on track toward your goals?

Call me a Strategy Geek if you’d like but this, my friend, is an element of business that I absolutely love. Planning gives you power – plain and simple – so today I’m giving you the process I’ve used to build seven businesses, over the last 30 years. You with me? […]

What Comes Up When You Go For Something Big?

It’s Day 3 of the Big Finish Challenge.

Morning PracticeI was up early this morning and settled into my morning practice. Two feelings were present. First, I’m grateful for the energy surrounding this challenge. You are an amazing group of positive people up to important things. Second, I appreciate that in taking you all on this journey, I am being called to walk my talk as well. That’s always a good thing. ;0)

I’ve used the vision crafting process since we started our first business in 1987 and am always blown away at the power of this process.  The practice of putting on paper, what you want to manifest in your life, is not only bad-ass, it also makes the likelihood of achieving it more likely. At the same time this process can conjure up some pretty interesting inner game stuff.


Craft a Vision For Where You Want To Be

And oh by the way… let’s make it really bad ass!

handsHere we go, Big Finish Friends!

It’s Day 1 of the Big Finish Challenge and I can feel the excitement.

After yesterday’s “pre-challenge confession”, I’ve heard from a lot of you via text, email and posts. Turns out, John and I aren’t the only ones turned on by the idea of finishing out 2016 in a really big way. Very cool! […]
