Video Tip Accountabilityx 800

Today's Tip is about Accountability. Do you find it Hard To Keep Yourself Accountable? Today I want to share a couple of tips about Accountability and Getting Stuff Done. That seems to be a challenge for several of my clients. I’m finding they need to be able to reach me via text, email or a call once or a week or every other week to make sure they are on track with what they should to be doing during the week or month. Sometimes they need reassurance of what their daily tasks should be to reach their goals. It’s easy to get knocked off of your game. You get demotivated or something happens to distract you from your regular routine. Once your energy shifts, it’s hard to get back … [Read more...]

Video Biz Tip on Time Management

video tip about time management

Today's Tip is about Time Management - Entrepreneurs MUST be good at it to Grow Their Business I recently gave everyone a tip about accountability where I talked a little about Google Calendar and time blocking, but I’m finding there are many entrepreneurs who could do a better job at keeping track of their time. Here’s what I mean by that. I’ve made several appointments with business owners; a few were my clients but most of them were not my clients, where the other person missed our appointment! Why? Because they hadn’t noted it correctly in whatever system they are using or they simply failed to make a note of the appointment. This is a problem that can lead to a huge … [Read more...]

Video Biz Tip – Here’s how to Get Out of A Funk

screenshot - get out of your funk

Today's Tip is to help you GET OUT of your FUNK! Many entrepreneurs have a tendency to "get into our own heads" a little too much or sometimes we let things negatively affect us. This is something I call “getting into a funk”. We sometimes get discouraged or frustrated or unhappy, hurt, or sad. Maybe it was something someone said, did, or didn't do that put you in a funk for a while, a day, or even longer. If you had your entire day planned and you let something get to you, it could affect your productivity. Getting into a funk could result in your not getting the things done that you needed to do. One thing I recommend is to have someone to talk to. And if you are in a funk and … [Read more...]

Is It Time to Hire a Business Coach or Mentor?


If you've been considering hiring a business coach, marketing coach, life coach or some other type of mentor but you haven't yet and aren't sure who to hire or what you really need then take a look at this. If you've hired coaches or mentors before for your business, yourself or some other reason and it's gone well, great. If you've hired them and it hasn't gone well or you for some reason don't feel like you received the value you deserved, I get it. All coaches and mentors are NOT created equal. Even those who call themselves a Business Coach, we all do various different things and in different ways so it can be tough looking and evaluating from the outside, thinking you're comparing … [Read more...]

Why Aren’t You Paying Attention to Yourself?


It's becoming very common, I see, for entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, to focus solely on their business and/or their career, yet forget one of the most important things they really should focus on. You need to focus on yourself, ladies. It's time to stop just doing things for everyone else, and it's time to start focusing on yourself.  I promise you that when you do this, you will attract more clients. You will make more money.

Working the Room


As a seasoned networker who built my multiple six figure coaching business initially by networking and follow up, I had to learn how to meet as many people as possible in order to have more leads to develop each month. Ten years ago when I started my business I attended an average of 14 networking events every month. While the follow up of all the leads you get at such events is a crucial component of making this work, without enough leads to follow up on, you'll basically get nowhere fast. Therefore, here are a few key tips on how to make the most of your time at your next networking event - Working the Room! 1. Be Prepared:  Go with a goal of how many connections you want to make … [Read more...]

Top 3 Ways to Get Out of Overwhelm


One of the main things that stops a lot of entrepreneurs from moving forward in their business or holds them back from reaching the 6-figure mark is being in overwhelm. Overwhelm can cripple a business owner. It sometimes gets so bad you may do nothing at all! And that’s not going to help you make more money or get more clients….you want to stay in constant action to see the best results. BUT those actions should be very strategic, planned and targeted to what you need to do to start, grow or market your business. Many small business owners focus on the wrong things first in their business therefore sometimes filling their schedule with unnecessary tasks rather than revenue generating … [Read more...]
