I have never really liked New Year's Eve.
Aside from the fact that I don't enjoy dressing up, overspending on a meal that is never really that tasty, and don't really love big crowds.
But the real reason is because I don't believe that you need a reason to set intentions just because you are being told that it's a "new year, new you."
Every month, week, and even day are great excuses to establish goals, set boundaries, and celebrate your accomplishments. Even the small ones.
As I start to look at what 2023 could look like, I have been thinking about what are some things that I could do differently so that I can scale my business and organize my life in a way that feels authentic to me.
Here are a few things that are part of my plan:
1 concentrate on building stronger relationships with organizations and institutions that resonate with my core values
2 build a bigger community of women who truly want to use their gifts and expertise to grow their impact and...
Have you ever just made a decision to do something and then pulled the trigger and didn't look back?
I did that the other day. It felt soooooooo good!
It wasn't anything that I even contemplated. It was inspired by an observation in my business about a strategy that just wasn't working for me.
Building an online business and media company as a solopreneur isn't easy. It's like putting together one of those 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzles. It takes forever and a day and some days you spend hours sitting there, totally focused on completing a section of the puzzle, and other days you have the patience of a gnat.
I am sure you have experienced this; you try to shove those two pieces together even though you know in your heart they don't belong together.
Constructing your business and the life you want for yourself is no different.
So, the other day I decided to basically blow up and gut one of the strategies that took me the...
Do you know why? Because I had a plan. As a mom of three man-children, the expectations on this meal is very, very high.
My fault entirely. I have spent 25+ years setting up the promise of what ends up on our holiday table, so I take full responsibility for that. In addition, being the sole "cooker"(as my youngest used to call me when he was a toddler), there's much to prep and do.
But over the years, I have developed and adopted a system on how to make the process as effortless as possible. It wasn't until I wrote an e-book about my Thanksgiving meal and prep that I realized that my success in both life and business comes down to one thing.
Without them, in my opinion, you're pretty much screwed!
With only 34 days left in 2022, there is no better time to get your sh*t together and feel good about entering a new year. That's plenty of time to...
Do you ever experience brain fog?
I was asking because just recently, I was reading an article that said that the average person is processing about 75 GB of information per day.
That means that the amount of information, entering your space and your brain is equivalent to watching more than 32 hours of television. That's 32 hours in one day. How is that possible? We only have 24 hours in a day.
When you look at it that way, it's no wonder that so many of us are struggling.
Just the other day I was working with one of my clients who is carving out a completely new path for herself. It's nothing even remotely similar to her previous career (of 20+ years, I might add). She is completely committed to this new lane, but the hoops she has to jump through in order to get this new machine running is a lot for a one-woman show to handle.
I knew she was overwhelmed - because she told me. So, in trying to help her feel less overwhelmed I realized a few things.
Did you know that there are less than 100 days (97 to be exact) left in 2022?
The question is, how are you going to make these next 97 days count?
I talk a lot about “the plan” and how to create a system around your daily, weekly, and monthly habits so that you can create a work-life balance. That, in my opinion, is the first place to start so that you can reach your dreams, hopes, wishes, and wants. But, I am not going to talk about that today.
What I really want to share with you is how so many women like you are starting businesses later in life. A.K.A. finding their purpose.
I actually hate speaking to “finding your purpose” because it has become so generic.
But the truth is, all the conversations I have, circle back to this. Just the other day I was taking a long beach walk with a friend (who has had a long and stellar career in advertising) and she’s just not feeling it anymore. Thus she’s...
