Relationship Networking: The Fastest Path to Cash!


The top questions from entrepreneurs are “How do I find clients” and “How can I make more money?”  So how do you do it?  How do you continuously attract and find new clients, build the business that excites you and make more money … all at the same time? Entrepreneurs get distracted with so many ideas and options that you either do nothing or you do too many things at once but none of them very well. Don't be fooled by all the tricks in the internet marketing world out there....if you're in business and NOT seeing the kind of income you want to make then this is the perfect strategy for you to hone your skills in.

The Simple Definition of Happiness – Are You a True Example?


I know you may not be expecting this type of topic coming from a Business and Marketing Coach like me. But I’ve learned a lot of things about life, love and happiness in my business and marketing coaching with thousands of clients over the last 11 years in business.  I’m going to get a little deep here and vulnerable with you if that’s ok? Because I think it’s important for those of you who resonate with me and my story to know that you’re not alone and you CAN want and HAVE more. This is what makes me different from all the other Business and Marketing Coaches out there though I believe. I want to focus on making sure my clients are 100% HAPPY in both your personal AND business life … [Read more...]

I am really, really good at seeing huge opportunities $$$ with your website, no matter what type of company you have. You could be coach, consultant, speaker or even a spa, roofing company, direct … [Read more...]

What would happen to YOUR business RIGHT NOW if something really bad happened and YOU couldn’t do the work?


If you haven't seen my posts on Facebook lately I'm currently in the process of restructuring my team. Not something I really WANTED to do, more like forced to do since my main VA (OBM) just left me to go back and work in an office. I know it was a good move for her so that's good but for me, yes, I'm a little left in disarray for a few weeks until we get someone in place to manage what she was doing (which was managing the entire 10+ person team!). I can't believe how it takes a village to run my business far from the days of my one little assistant in my home office 9 years ago... We'll be fine I know it, my team luckily seems to know what they're supposed to do and it … [Read more...]

Are you invested in tomorrow . . . or yesterday?


There’s a lot of talk about “the 1%” and “the 99%” these days. Truth is, the main thing that separates the 1% from the rest of us is that they knew about companies like Microsoft, Google and Apple as they were just starting to make their mark. A mere $100 invested in Microsoft stock in 1986 is worth over $40,000 today. Numbers like this make you stop to think: where are today’s opportunities? Whether you’re an experienced investor or have never bought a share of stock, Joyce Blonskij’s Own the Clouds is a must-read for everyone concerned about financial security. All author proceeds are going to SICK KIDS. And during the launch, it comes with valuable FREE GIFTS too! Own the Clouds … [Read more...]
