Start setting healthy boundaries and do more of what you love16May
Do you do everything for everyone else and take care of yourself last? Are you paying the price for it?
Are you used to saying YES to each and every request that comes your way?
There’s nothing bad about helping others and being there for those who need us. But the problem comes when we put ourselves, our lives, and our businesses last. We end up paying a high price for not setting boundaries.
Do you wish you had the time to grow your business, or to simply rest and do something fun?
Today I will share with you one simple way to start setting healthy boundaries so you can use your time in the way that you really want to.
Four tips to overcome perfectionism07May
Are you putting off launching your online program, writing your book, getting your website ready or doing your sales copy?
Over the past few years, I’ve talked to hundreds of women who shared similar scenarios:
They had a dream, but they didn’t want to fail. So they didn’t do anything.
They said they were working on their projects, but they got stuck in the details. They wouldn’t let go of their work, wouldn’t let others see it, until it was absolutely perfect.
Or even worst: they wouldn’t even start working on their projects because of the high expectation they had placed on themselves.
The problem is that we stop moving forward because we get stuck trying to achieve perfection.
When your creativity is held inside you, you get stagnant and start feeling disconnected from your Higher Self. When you’re disconnected from your true nature—the one that creates, manifests, activates, and shares, you may start feeling sad, angry or even depressed.
Most of the time we have these feelings, because we’re avoiding what we need to do. In that avoidance, we get lost.
The secret to creating a business around your ideal lifestyle24Apr
There’s nothing better in life than being able to create your own reality, exactly as you dream it. As entrepreneurs, we can call our own shots and build our vision according to our ideal lifestyles.
I’ve worked with women all over the world, who are building their businesses on their own terms. The common denominator all of them share is their ability to combine their many passions into their businesses.
The new wave of entrepreneurship these days involves bringing your lifestyle into the mix.
We want it all, and we can have it. But first, we need to understand exactly what vision we want to create.
When we bring our lifestyle into our businesses, we can truly share our gifts with the world. We don’t want to separate our lives into little individual cubicles, where we work one place, then when we are done, play in another. Now, we can have it all—we can work and play together.
How do you go for your dreams, when those around you don’t support you?14Apr
Are you upset because your family, your partner, or your friends don’t support you in your pursuit of your dreams?
Have you ever shared a great business idea, or a life goal with a loved one, only to find that their response is indifference or lack of trust in your ability to succeed? They may even tell you that you are going to fail.
If you’ve been holding back from going after your dreams, or if you’re trying to make your dreams work but are feeling defeated due to the lack of support, then this is an opportunity for you to reclaim your power.
When we listen to the voices around us, follow them and believe them, we are giving our power away to others, or even to our own fears.
We all feel fearful when we are pursuing something big in our lives. It’s scary to drop what you’ve been doing for years and take a different path. It is scary to invest money in a project that we don’t know is going to be profitable. Nothing in this life is certain (well they say that only taxes and death are).
Are you procrastinating in developing your business?08Apr
You’ve started your business, and there is a hell of a lot to do! You have to work on your website, marketing, branding, social media, connections, building and growing your list, launching products, and the list keeps going!
You have dreams and visions, but your days go by and it doesn’t feel like you’ve accomplished anything. All you remember is that you entered Facebook in the morning, with the idea of just catching up with your virtual friends and, suddenly, the day is gone and nothing got done.
Are you hiding behind Facebook, Twitter, or the TV?
Well, you’re not alone. I’ve talked to many women who’ve shared similar concerns. They all find ways to procrastinate, and avoid taking responsibility for their businesses.
If you’ve been avoiding what you need to be doing to grow your business, this may be a good time to ask yourself WHY.
Why are you avoiding the things you need to do?
Are you too stressed out?
Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of tasks you need to tackle in order to build momentum in your business.
Maybe you’ve spent too much time comparing yourself to other entrepreneurs, and you’re feeling defeated, frustrated, or that you’re not good enough to run a successful business.
Are you waiting to have the money to start your new business? Start now with what you have!02Apr
Today I want to talk about a blockage that comes up for a lot of women (and men) who are starting businesses as life and/or health coaches or writers. They don’t have (yet) the money to afford a great website, and believe they have to wait to start their new businesses until they have the money. I say Hell No! Start doing all you can, with what you have. NOW! If you are waiting to have a certain amount of money in the bank, you will get stagnant and lose precious time that you could have used building your business. Worst of all, you’ll feel very frustrated.
I want to tell you a big secret that will change the way you think about running your new business:
What matters most is the message.
All the rest comes and goes. A website can start as a simple free WordPress blog and evolve into an amazing, professionally-designed site when the time is right. Just because you don’t have the coolest, sharpest, online presence, doesn’t mean you can’t start moving toward realizing your dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur.
When I started my coaching career a few years ago, I started with a free blog on WordPress. I made it look the best I could, put up the best photos I had, and made it simple, clean and focused on the message.
I got into this career by coincidence. At the time, I didn’t even know what a coach was and had never heard of online programs to deliver information. Nor I was interested in public speaking industry or writing personal development books. None of that.
