Do you ever take things for granted?
I certainly do and was reminded of this the other day when a fabulous human in my group, Tech Talk, could not figure out how to share her “Zoom” screen.
Over the past 2 plus years, I bet you have used Zoom over a dozen times. And if you haven’t, I commend you.
When I got off that coaching call, I started thinking about all of those I have worked with over the years and how the majority of them are challenged when it comes to computer stuff.
I can confidently sit here and tell you that that is not me. And not because I am an above-average tech-savant but more so because I am wildly (to a fault) curious. Nothing lights my butt on fire more than figuring something out. Google is my friend and so are those “live chat” options that live in the bottom right corner of most digital platforms and apps.
But that is just me.
And the biggest challenge I see is that most of us can’t figure...
Did you grow up believing that there was only one path to success?
I believed that you:
Went to college
Got a 9-5 job
Nabbed a partner
Start a family
Plan for the future
Balance career and family
Retire and live your best life
For most of us, not the case.
Generally, it doesn't always work as planned.
Most people I talk to are content. Most have gone down something sort of resembling that laundry list above and it’s “good enough.”
For me, life took a turn of events that I would never have seen coming. One after the other; tragedy, loss, and then a cancer diagnosis. I was so angry at the universe and was waiting for it to give me a break
It was this quote that gave me a little mini Ah-Ha moment; “Most millionaires have 7 streams of income.” ~ Tony Robbins.
I always thought being a Jackie of all trades was somewhat of a negative. As a multi-passionate, I...
Are you ready to hear why most people give up on their aspirations?
What I have learned over the past 2 decades guiding people (and this is just my perspective), is that people lose interest because they don’t know to transform their dream into action.
They also struggle with;
not having the support system to encourage growth
not knowing how to break down the big goal into the tiny details
Maybe you feel you are too old or missed the window of opportunity or that no one will take you seriously.
To be totally honest here, I know what loss of identity feels like, firsthand. When I made a choice to pivot from my highly successful role as CEO and founder of my 7-figure, global lifestyle brand “take a break,” I felt paralyzed.
I spent way too many years in “the ole” (as I like to call it) and it took a cancer diagnosis to wake me the F up!
You don’t need a traumatic...
In my opinion, working for yourself is way harder than working for someone else.
Yes, there are always tradeoffs. And I am not going to lie, there are days when I fantasize about being given a checklist of things to do knowing that I get to put it all behind me when I clock out at 5 pm.
But that’s not the choice neither you nor I have made.
You most likely made this choice because
take your kids to soccer practice
work, unshowered, in your sweats
control your own schedule (even if it’s 24/7 right now)
you’re an artist and creative and you want to do what you love
build something fabulous - even when it feels exhausting
Over the past 3 decades as a serial entrepreneur, I have learned a thing or two and it really wasn’t until the last 5 years that I figured a few key things out.
Without a viable plan and the strategy to execute that plan, you’ll go nowhere. You will ultimately go somewhere,...
Can you believe that we are officially at the halfway point in 2022?
And if you feel as though you may have lost your way between January and now, I get it.
Why I know this about you is because I talk to a lot of people and the one common denominator is time. Or the excuses of time.
"I am too busy"
"There are not enough hours in the day"
"Everyone demands my attention"
Blah, blah, blah.
But the truth is, you do have enough time, you are just not prioritizing it in a way that is allowing you to make the time. And I am here to help you not only realize it but offer you a few guidelines to help you create it.
Today's three tips might be just the thing you need to get back on track!
Create your action plan. Your action plan is what you want to do and accomplish by the end of the year. The key to getting there is thinking and planning big. You will see what is possible as you progress through your milestones and tasks.
Today, many of you may be celebrating Memorial Day and the kick-off of summer with a traditional backyard party, surrounded by friends, the smell of coals burning on the BBQ, and a seasonal fruit tart.
But for others, myself included, you might be recovering from this past week with a bit of sadness, grief, and hopelessness. It’s hard to celebrate the future when the present feels so bleak.
Picking yourself up to tackle your to-do list and go on with your day can be challenging. And I know for myself and those that I surround myself with, overcoming those challenges seems to be getting harder and harder.
If it weren’t for my small but powerful community, I am not really sure that I could have gotten through this past week. Our weekly zoom calls might seem trivial with what has transpired over the past several months(Ukraine, women’s rights, Buffalo, Texas, etc.), but not feeling so alone in our feelings has become a comfort that I look forward to and quite frankly...
