Stop Living in Fear – THIS is How to Make the Money You Want.

September 15th, 2014

Be honest now – is the way you’re running your business (and therefore your life) exactly how it would be if you had no fear and KNEW you couldn’t fail? Or are you settling just a little … maybe a lot?

It’s impossible to fully avoid, isn’t it? Or at least it feels that way at times. I’m talking about you. Making choices for your business and life. Based on what you think you SHOULD do or NEED to do, rather than on what you’d really LOVE to do or (perhaps more tellingly) what you really freaking do NOT want to do.

I’m talking, quite simply, about fear.

About fear telling you that you should put together that not-quite-right program because hey! You need to do something NOW and hey! This is what people seem to want, so hey! You gotta make money, right?

About fear telling you that you can’t do THAT, not that WAY, because you’re not ready, not good enough, not BIG enough.

About fear telling you to take the client you don’t really want …

To do the hours you really resent …

To say no once more to the time spent with your kids or on your creative work …

To accept it when people try to negotiate with you on price …

To ‘give in’ on the times you’re available, the way you’re available …

To tell yourself that this is how it has to be for now … that you can’t say THAT … it would be too harsh! Or mean! Or you’d lose clients!

The crazy thing about all of this is that if you are a woman who believes in even the POSSIBILITY that you can create a business and a life on your terms, and who is in ANY way …


10 Things to Never Give Up If You Want to Make It as an Entrepreneur

September 11th, 2014

 

 

1. Your true message. What is the real thing you need to share with the world, the true message within you that you (and you alone) are called to deliver? Whatever you do KEEP SHARING YOUR REAL MESSAGE.

So often i see entrepreneurs trying to build a brand, a name, make money, by essentially just robo-copying what everyone else in their industry is already doing. Whether by accident or design, this is a terrible idea, and one thing is for certain – the world has enough zombies trying to take money from it.

You want to create WEALTH, and truly “make it”?

Start by being you.

Your best you.

And sharing that with the world.

 

2. Your rituals. There were things you used to take time for, often, before you got into this game.

At some point, perhaps when just starting out, it occurred to you – “if I had a successful online business I could do this EVERYDAY! Imagine!”, and you envisaged yourself sitting down for a few hours of inspired creation each day and filling the rest of your time with yoga, gym, coffee by the beach or in the sun, long bouts, lazy dinners, plenty of journaling, plenty of time to just BE.

Meanwhile, here in the NOW, your every thought and move is governed by fear and the idea of What Still Needs Doing In Your Business.

Your health and fitness is NOTHING like what it was, you’re stressed and exhausted and you judge your self worth almost entirely by how much time you spent working.

Can I just say? This is not a smart way to succeed. Even if you make big MONEY this way (which you won’t, as there’s no freaking way you’re operating in your zone of genius when you’re trying …


Want Your Millions, Want ‘em Now? Be a Diva, and Expect The Best.

September 4th, 2014

 

I freaking HATE it when people come and talk to me when I’m writing or engrossed in my work. I’ve mentioned this before but God knows it bears saying again. I mean come ON – are they actually stupid? I think it’s pretty clear when somebody has their head down and is focused and anybody with even 1 single lone creative cell in their body knows NOT TO INTERRUPT THE ARTIST AT WORK.

ESPECIALLY not to ask something as mundane and IRRELEVANT as how you are or whether you got their message/email/annoying distraction to everything you actually care about and want to spend your time on.

Yeah. I’m a selfish bitch, I know. I want it all, I want it now, and I want it EXACTLY HOW I ASKED FOR IT.

NO interruptions.

NO small talk.

NO pesky tasks.

In fact, you know what? Let’s make it simple for both of us, just don’t come anywhere within a 50 foot radius of me when I’m working, thinking about work, journaling, brainstorming or otherwise in flow in my creative state.

Sigh.

Do you ever wonder if maybe you’d be happier and better off living on a remote island cut off from everybody? Or at least getting helicoptered in there once a day for a nice block of 4 or 20 hours

Here’s the thing about being a total diva, bitch, whatever you want to call it -

The world will never understand you and you WILL come across as arrogant, demanding, spoiled, a princess, head in the clouds, ungrateful, uncaring, and a whole host of other things not generally spoken of in polite company.

And BECAUSE of this – no, not in spite of it but BECAUSE of it – you will make your millions, become the leader you were …


Stop Being So Damn Realistic

September 1st, 2014

No filter, okay? This one is just going to be a straight out in your face smackdown of love. I want to let you know that now, before we get into it because you know what? If right now you’re running scared from the life you know you were born for then this is going to hurt.

But here it is -

It is complete and utter bullshit that you can’t live the life that occasionally dances through your mind as a one day fantasy.

Want to know what else?

It’s complete and utter BS that you can’t live that life NOW.

One of the most infuriating statements I hear more and more lately, since embarking upon this life of endless fun, travel and FREEDOM as a lifestyle entrepreneur is “I’d love to do what you’re doing”. Don’t get me wrong, I love to hear of other people’s big dreams and goals but to be perfectly honest I REALLY only wanna hear it if that statement is followed by some version of “and so I am making it HAPPEN”.

Instead what I hear is “I’d love to do what you’re doing but I have to be realistic”.

Or, “I’d love to one day start my own business but I don’t know where to start”

Or, “I’d love to be able to travel but I have a mortgage … kids in school … a stable income … etc etc etc BLAH!”

And I am just so. damn. SICK of hearing this rubbish.

I know, right? Who am I to judge other people – maybe even you! – by how you live your life? How incredibly insolent of me! You know what though? What might come across as judgement, when we get right down to it, is me feeling the TRUTH of …


The Fastest Way to Make It All Happen

August 28th, 2014

If you want to make it happen then you have to actually DO it. And you have to start now.

Can I give you a tip though? The way to start is NOT to spend any more time on getting clear, or sorting stuff out in your mind, or getting ORGANISED with everything you’re already doing so that you can make space for the stuff you REALLY want to start doing.

You don’t create more of something by trying to focus on reducing some other thing.

If you want to see your income grow, focus on getting your income to grow rather than on reducing your debt.

If you want to see your weight go down, focus on eating MORE of the right foods rather than on eating less of the WRONG foods.

And if you want to live your DREAM life, in all ways, and go to bed each night certain that you did what MATTERED, then you have to just start living it. Do NOT focus on all of the ‘other’ stuff that you think, believe even KNOW you need to do. Just ignore it and put FIRST THINGS FIRST.

When you wake up, put the stuff that matters to you DEEPLY first.

When you sit down to work you IGNORE your ‘list’ until you’ve done the real work you want to do.

When you go home to your kids, your family, you be the mother, the wife you want to be and THEN you think about washing or cleaning or whatever. Or better still you just pay someone else to do all of that stuff

You have to crowd OUT the wrong stuff by adding IN the right stuff. It’s the only way.

You can’t fit living your dream life into the cracks and crevices of your …
