This Is What Makes the Difference

In my fifteen years as a business coach, working with thousands of small business owners on their business development and marketing strategy, I’ve seen it all.

From businesses that continue to grow and thrive year in and year out, all the way to businesses that never seem to get off the ground!

So what makes the difference?

You Can Do Business In The Easy Zone

You know how to make yourself miserable?

Take on too much, take on things you think you “should” do instead of things that feel right … and then struggle to get through it all.

Let’s Get Real About What It Really Takes!

I got this in my mailbox recently. I’ve copied it verbatim.

“How To Easily, Quickly & Consistently Generate Enough Clients Every Month To Scale Your Coaching / Consulting Business From Zero To 6 & 7 Figures In 6 Weeks Or Less”

Really?   From zero to 6 & 7 figures or more in 6 weeks OR LESS!

7 figures is over a million dollars. 6 weeks is … well … 6 weeks.

Yeah, right.

Improve Your Life with 3 Simple Changes

Whoa. What’s this?

I looked at my list and realized I was actually caught up.

Stop the presses!

No big projects and deadlines looming.  Nothing weighing on me business-wise causing me undue stress.  I was just going along at a nice easy pace … enjoying the business coaching I was doing.

This is a most unusual experience for me.  All my life, I’ve been a Type A overachiever who prided myself on my productivity.

I’m the girl who was in charge of the largest outdoor street festival in the Southeast for several years in the 90’s.  

I’ve always been diligent.  I love my lists of priorities and I’m pretty darned good at managing them. But up till now, my tasks and projects have always been a bit overwhelming.

So what changed?  How did I get to this new and wonderful place where I’m not feeling overwhelmed and behind all the time?

It Doesn’t Take Much

If you’re a professional, offering services to the public, you want your clients to think of you as a “trusted provider” … someone they know will take care of them and look out for their best interests.

Fact is, it often takes a long time to build that level of trust, comfort, and security.

And it can be lost in an instant.

The Secret to Winning Is NOT What You Think!

Running a business presents you with a never-ending string of challenges. Sometimes they seem overwhelming … as if you’re playing a game you can’t win.

It’s the rare person who’s never experienced that sense of having too much to handle … of facing such big a gap between where you are now and where you need to be that you have no idea how you’re going to close it.

Have you ever been there? Of course you have.

Well, I’ve got a blazing insight for you … straight from the 5th game of this year’s World Series!

How to Get Better Results Than Social Media

How many times have you heard somebody say, “Social media is the way to build a business?”

And how many times have you said to yourself, “But I don’t want to do it! I don’t like it. I don’t really understand it. I don’t have the time to learn all the ins and outs. It seems to suck up so much time and I’m not even sure it really works!”

That’s a good question.

Does it work?

Can you really attract new clients by sending out Tweets and posting on various sites and doing the whole Internet networking thing?

Too Much Hype

I just received the nicest compliment.

I gave a speech to a group recently, and afterwards a man came up to me and told me how much he had enjoyed the presentation and that I wasn’t like so many of the other people he sees. He said, “You’re a real person…authentic. You want people to walk away from today with things they can use.”

Now, you might be saying to yourself, “Well yeah, that’s the speaker’s job, isn’t it, to inform and inspire?”
