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...
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...
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...
A couple of weeks ago I watched a great training session with a powerhouse Master Coach who was coaching other coaches and female entrepreneurs.
This Master Coach makes approximately 18 million dollars a year coaching women on weight loss, and she was speaking with this young woman who is also a coach. This young woman was feeling incredibly frustrated and defeated because her business wasn’t taking off.
At one point during the conversation the young woman said in frustration, “why isn’t all the work I’ve been putting into this business working!?”
And the Master Coach took a moment, and said to her very calmly “Because you haven’t been doing it long enough yet, you need to keep going”
Well that just upset this young woman further, and she said, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME, I’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR FOUR YEARS!!"
And the Master Coach said “For 9 years it cost me more to run my business, than what I got out of it. I went from...
