Confidence vs Self-Confidence: What's the difference?

Oct 15, 2021

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.

Confidence is supported by experience and external evidence.

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.

Self-confidence is about the belief and trust you have in yourself.

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...

What does success mean to you?

Oct 06, 2021
 

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...

How to make more money as a health and wellness entrepreneur

Sep 01, 2021
 

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...

  • It’s the pandemic.
  • It’s because I don’t have a specific niche yet.
  • I don't have enough TIME!! There are not enough hours in a day, right?
  • It's because of my full time job.
  • I have little kids at home.
  • I can't get any quality leads.
  • I suck at sales.
  • I don’t have a big following on social media.
  • I don’t have enough money. You need money to make money, right?

I could go on and on.

One thing I know for sure is that there are a million reasons why entrepreneurs THINK they aren’t making more money.

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!

How Epic Failure Leads to Massive Success

Aug 25, 2021
 

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.

Stick with me as I dive into the Failure File.

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...

5 Strange Characteristics of an Entrepreneur

Aug 16, 2021
 

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.

#1: We tend to come from broken families and many of us were bullied

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...

Optimize These 3 Areas in Your Life for Highest Productivity & Profitability

Jul 26, 2021
 

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...

Having The Courage To Let Go.

Nov 13, 2020

Letting Go.

What does that mean to you?

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately as I’ve been shifting my energy and how I spend my days. Normally my days are time blocked from the moment I wake up to the moment my head hits the pillow at night. Meetings, sessions with clients, working out, creating programs, updating websites, meditating, working with my staff, eating, professional development, webinars, social media, writing, shooting videos, going live, family and domestic responsibilities.... ALL the things and more squeezed into a very short day.

That's the way it's been for a long time, but not any more. Over the past several weeks I've:

  • Let go of projects that I thought we’re helping me achieve certain goals.
  • Let go of the idea that working hard is the path to success.
  • Mentally let go of things I would typically be stressing over all day and night that I thought were important.
  • Even let go of physical items that are no longer serving me that I've been...

It’s Time To Get My Groove Back!

Oct 27, 2020

Have you heard of the 4 Sacred Seasons?

I learned about them from Dr John Amaral, who studied with and was mentored by Dr Donny Epstein.

The 4 Sacred Seasons are Discover, Transform, Awaken & Integrate.

When you’re in the season of Discover, shit is hitting the fan so-to-speak. Life has thrown you a curve ball and you’re being asked to discover something about yourself that you’ve been avoiding, suppressing, numbing, resisting… all the things we do as humans to evade the stuff in our lives we need to take a closer look at, acknowledge and accept about ourselves or our situation.

Transform is the season when you are full of energy and you take massive action! It’s actually more painful for you to NOT take action in this season. You see the future… the future is now… you set goals and work towards achieving them. You feel invigorated, motivated and excited about what you’re creating so there’s a lot of momentum and action.
