Happy New Year to all of you. Welcome to 2022!
Cheers to a brand new year. A clean slate full of possibilities.
It doesn’t matter what happened last year… it doesn’t matter what happened over the past 3 years… you have a brand new year ahead to create, and grow, and have new experiences, new successes, new failures, and new achievements.
You have the power to truly make this year absolutely incredible.
I want to share something with you that will set you up for the year ahead in a great way.
Every year since 2018 I choose a Word of the Year.
AND every year I set goals for myself. I’ve been doing that for as long as I can remember.
I look at all the things that I want to achieve personally and professionally, and then my plan is to look over those goals regularly as I navigate the year ahead. Ideally every single week!
Setting goals is very important to me, but so is following up on what I set out for myself at the beginning of the...
Happy Holidays to you my friends!
We are getting closer to that time of the year where we focus on navigating spending time with family… holidays gatherings… lots of food… lots of charcuterie boards… gift giving… traveling… parties… kids… cooking… baking… doing ALL the things during the holidays.
What do your holidays look like? Do they tend to be a little crazy?
Maybe your holiday season last year was incredibly quiet, so this year if you plan on seeing more people and being more active it might feel a bit more overwhelming. Last year things were still shut down in New York for the most part so our holidays were really quiet.
Not a lot of people were traveling or were able to travel last year because of the pandemic (depending on where you live), so maybe integrating back into a busy holiday season feels like a bit of a shock after experiencing an extended period of quieter times.
Do you set goals for yourself?
I love setting goals AND I believe it's my responsibility as a Success Coach to set goals and work towards achieving them.
Why? Because it's essentially what I help my clients do.
As a wellness entrepreneur, do you know why someone might choose to do business with you, over someone else?
Why would someone choose your retreat over someone else’s retreat? Why would someone choose you as their coach instead of another coach who has the exact same niche?
Knowing what makes you stand out from your competitors is key in signing up more clients and making more money in your business.
This is something I call your x-factor.
What makes you unique.
What makes your business special?
What makes you stand out from your competitors?
It comes down to your x-factor.
This is really important to understand about yourself and your business because knowing what sets you apart will clarify, simplify and streamline your marketing efforts.
Place yourself in the shoes of your client… why do they want to work with you instead of going to someone else? What value do you offer that no one else does?
The 4th episode of my podcast is...
As entrepreneurs we are providing a product or a service that helps people and serves them in a meaningful way. We fill in a gap where our audience or our clients have a specific need.
And as we build our businesses we generate revenue. That’s the goal right?!
If your business isn’t making money, it’s a hobby.
But let's talk about wealth. Wealth is not something that you go out and get. Wealth is something that you create... and you create it by first creating VALUE.
Many of us were raised to think that there’s this "pie" that represents all the money and wealth in the world... and if some people have a big portion of that pie, then it means there’s not enough to go around for the rest of us.
I've heard people say, "Billionaires shouldn’t be billionaires because they should give away most of their wealth to others that need it".
Well, there ARE billionaires that...
Recently I've been obsessed with the differences between confidence and self-confidence.
With confidence you look to your past experiences for evidence that you can do something and do it well.
I feel very confident brushing my teeth, pouring a glass of water, driving a car or riding a horse because I have done those things many times before. I have a lot of evidence that supports feeling confident in those areas.
Self-confidence on the other hand is INTERNAL. It’s based on the belief you have about yourself. Self-confidence is an emotion that you generate without any history to back it up or external evidence.
So why does this matter?
Because having a strong belief about yourself and your abilities without evidence to back it up will get you closer to achieving your goals. It will propel you forward as you build your business and continue to...
Many people are chasing success. You want a successful business... a successful relationship... to be a successful mom... have a successful life!
We all have our own ideas of what success looks like.
Some people may think that having a successful relationship should look a certain way, or be for a certain length of time, or there has to be a certain level of commitment.
Some people may think that their business will be a "success" when they start making X amount of money... or when they're featured in Forbes... or when they are walking in the airport and see some random person wearing one of their products.
When I was building BE Outfitter - the backpack company that my partners and I sold last year - one of my business partners used to say, "the day I see some random person walking through the airport with one of our packs, that will be a symbol of success for me".
Here's the thing (and this is great news) YOU are the only person who can define success for yourself... YOU are the...
Are you a wellness entrepreneur? Do you have a business that helps to transform people and makes the world a better place?
Then what do you think is keeping you from making more money?
Do you think...
I could go on and on.
If you are a wellness entrepreneur and you want to grow your business and serve more people and make more money, then read this carefully...
The money you make is a direct result of how much you believe in yourself.
Read that again!
When you meet people who...
We can’t talk about entrepreneurship without bringing up that four letter word FAIL!
If you’re reading this and you’re an entrepreneur, then I’m going to assume that you know that failure is a good thing.
I’ll assume you know putting yourself out there as a business owner, making mistakes, and learning from them is how we grow as individuals and as entrepreneurs… and it’s also how we grow our businesses.
So I’m not going to share WHY failure is necessary because you already know that. I’m going to talk about failing on purpose.
I learned about the failure file from Ramit Sethi who is the author of I Will Teach You To Be Rich and the book Your Move: The Underdog's Guide to Building Your Business.
Here’s the deal (and any successful entrepreneur will tell you this), if you want to be more successful then you need to double, triple, or quadruple the amount of failures...
Running your own business isn’t for everyone – that’s why not many people do it. So what makes entrepreneurs different from anyone else in business?
I’ve been building businesses for over 20 years, and now that I've become a success coach for female entrepreneurs - I've noticed there are some interesting personality traits that entrepreneurs share, and some similarities in our upbringings I find fascinating.
Let me preface this by saying I haven’t done any formal research into this. These are simply my own observations being an entrepreneur for as long as I have been, being around other entrepreneurs, and coaching them.
All of the successful entrepreneurs I work with or know had parents who separated when they were young, or experienced significant dysfunction or trauma as a child.
Then we grow up and have something to prove.
We know how to deal with uncertainty...
