How To Make It Easy (and why that’s ok)

October 20th, 2014

I think that when you start out in business there’s a certain set of assumptions you have about how it has to be.

Stuff like having to put in the time and effort, having to go into the hole a little (or a lot!) before you become profitable, having to invest your energy into learning stuff that doesn’t come easy (hello evil tech tasks), doing the often small and fiddly tasks to just get things working, going through the inevitable trial and error process it takes to find what you really want to do, the list could go on and on!

But sooner or later (assuming you actually stick with things and don’t try to do anything stoopid like put a deadline on when you have to have ‘made it’ by, or how you have to get there!) there comes a time when things kinda ARE working.

You’re making money – sure it’s pretty much never as much as you COULD be or perhaps would like to be making but it’s coming in.

You’re getting great results for your clients.

People know who you are.

And you’ve even figured out the whole WordPress thing … kinda!

Your hard work has, in short, paid off, and even though the journey never ends you know you’ve much to be proud of and much to be grateful for.

This is the time when, if you’re anything like me or the many many other driven and A-type women entrepreneurs out there, you’re most likely to royally screw yourself through some kind of sabotage or upper limit issue.

You’ll find ways to make it harder …

You’ll fix what wasn’t broken … (and possibly break it in the process!)

You’ll resist leveraging your existing talents and skills never mind stuff you’ve already created and instead …


The World Needs You to Be You

October 15th, 2014

I had this dream for so long –

It was really more of a calling.

The more I resisted it, the more it spoke to me –

But yet for some reason I still couldn’t manage to listen! Because in spite of the calling, and the pulling, and the constant voice inside my head telling me that this was my THING, this was what I was meant to do, this was what I HAD to do, all I heard was –

You can’t. You shouldn’t. People don’t really want that. People don’t really want you. (At least not THAT way). And besides, what’s the point?

Have you ever had a calling to do something completely different, to be someONE completely new?

And have you listened, or have you done the ‘sensible’ thing and continued on your path to success the way you’d already planned, the way it seems you should, the way that simply makes SENSE?

A funny thing about living your purpose –

YOU might see it as a hugely big deal to get paid for THAT, that nobody would want to hear it from YOU, that you can’t, you shouldn’t, and you don’t know how anyway!

But somebody out there is already making money doing what YOU say you can’t -

And somebody out there is making a difference in the way that you were MOST called to do –

And if you’re not careful, then somebody out there will get to go to bed night after night certain that they are living their destiny –

And it won’t be you.

41 THINGS SHARED IN A ROOMFUL OF MILLIONAIRES

September 26th, 2014

CERTAINTY.

Imagine if you knew, for certain, that you could make exactly the income you desire, do exactly the work you’re most called to do, leave exactly the legacy you most want to leave, and be exactly the YOU who you most want to be.

Well, good news. I’m here to tell you that you can have it all, you can have it exactly on your terms, and you can start now. But if you want it? You’re going to have to be willing to take it, and it will NOT look how you think it might.

I’m blessed to have spent 4 days out of the past week in a room with some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs and game-changers. Of 39 in the room, 23 can call themselves millionaires … I’m proud to say I snuck into that group of 23!

We not only spent hours in conference discussing LIFE MASTERY over the course of our time together but also spent time with our families – dinner parties each evening, karaoke, a Luau, a day on a 70-foot catamaran, snorkelling with sea turtles, and even a cheeky night out … all in all an amazing weekend, and in many ways I still pinch myself to have created a life where I can call people in a group like that even my acquaintances, let alone friends!

But here’s the thing – you might think that when a group of the worlds’ top entrepreneurs get together the discussions around sales, and marketing and ‘what’s working’ abound.

No. Niet. Nein. Nicht so.

You would be wrong.

Let me give you a hint, a teaser, if you will –

You think that the reason you’re not making the money you want, living the life you want, making the DIFFERENCE you want to …


How Serious Are You About Actively Creating Wealth? 11 Ways to Let the Money Flow.

September 26th, 2014

I want to share with you the key activities I do on a regular basis that I feel have most contributed to (finally!) creating the wealth I so long desired.

Something I’ve learned recently about money – and how to make a lot of it – you get whatever you choose.

Truth be told, this lesson has been many years in the works, perhaps even a lifetime!

But it’s not until the past few months that it’s really hit me –

Damn. I could have had this all along. This, or something better!

I just didn’t ask.

Or, to put it more specifically, I didn’t ask, FULLY believe, and then also do the (real) work to make it happen and ALLOW IT TO FLOW.

What’s your wealth situation right now?

Are you exactly where you want to be, better off than you ever imagined, so damn blessed and grateful to have created an easy and alignment based flow of money and perhaps just reading this out of curiosity, to get someone else’s take? Or are you like the vast majority of people in that – infuriating as it is to admit it – you just haven’t yet managed to figure the money thing out yet?

You never quite have as much as you need (or want!) …

Your dominant thoughts around money tend more towards fear and scarcity rather than joy and plenty …

You’ve actively tried to improve your money mindset and deal with your money ‘shit’ as well as do the practical work to grow your wealth and reduce any debt, but yet for every step forward you feel almost instantly pulled back again – and sometimes it seems as though even any money that you DO create just doesn’t want to stick around and hang out with …


How often should you email your audience?

September 17th, 2014

My clients regularly freak out over not knowing how often to email their audience.

They worry they’ll be too pushy …

Overwhelm or annoy people …

Have their readers think they are being ‘salesy’ …

Or just that they don’t really have anything awesome to say anyway!

Do you ever feel this way?

To be honest I have to laugh when people ask ME if it’s a bad thing for them to email often … I’m kinda the queen of emailing a LOT. In case you hadn’t noticed

So here’s my answer: How Often You SHOULD Email People? As often as you have something worthwhile to say!

Now here’s the thing, SOME people will not agree with you that what you’re saying is worthwhile! I get unsubscribes with nearly EVERY email.

This is roughly how I feel about that:

Long story short? I’ll keep on being busy doing MY biz my way, and if it doesn’t gel with some people? That’s totally cool. I didn’t get into this game to make everyone LIKE me, I got into it to make an IMPACT on the right people. The right people for ME. This means – people who get me.

People who not only like me, but LOVE me.

People who WANT to hear from me.

People who actually get disappointed when there’s NOT an email from me!

Plus, I have a lot to say

But how does it fit in with you building your business and making MONEY?

Well I hope that when you email people it impacts your business positively! Your words are far and away your GREATEST business asset … if you use them wisely, that is!

Your words, whether spoken or written, should compel people to take ACTION.

Should MOVE people …

Should get them EMOTIONAL …

And …
