Have you ever made a very clear plan for something, and then “Bam!” things A, B & C happens that throw you off track for a day, a week or sometimes even a month or more? Essentially, everything goes to sh!t. It can be so frustrating when things don’t go the way you have planned them to go, especially when it comes to your business.
This recently happened to me and (I won’t lie) I did have a few moments of a “pity party”! Luckily however, because of a practiced discipline I learned years ago of focusing on why everything is always working out for me, I didn’t stay there too long. :)
I wanted to share this quick story with you because as a coach and entrepreneur this probably happens to you from time to time (if not regularly). I know that if you don’t nip the negative emotion from this scenario in the bud quickly, it can begin to take over your day, week or month. More importantly, it might stop you from allowing even better experiences in your life (like what happened to me in the story that follows).
Here’s what happened:

Recently I was reading a 'get inspired' list from a blog I enjoy and it did indeed inspire me and gave me some great reminders.
It also sparked my imagination about what has and continues to work for myself that enables me to live a life I truly love and feel inspired by as well as run my #digitalnomad coaching business from my laptop anywhere in the world (currently in Ecuador as I write this).
I decided to make this week's blog post this list in the hopes that as you read it, it may inspire you to take action or even just smile and feel a deep sense of gratitude for your journey on the path to your dreams.
Here are 52 ways that I know to be true to grow your business and love your life...

Have you ever had a moment in your life where something just clicked? It was as though you had been in the dark your whole life and then ‘boom’ the light came on.
I’m sure you probably have experienced this more than once. Do you ever wish that could happen to you in your business? Do you wish that someone could just flick a switch and you would have all the money, clients and success you really desire?
I have a piece of good news for you. You can flick the switch. Anytime you want. And this is the universe telling you, “It’s time to turn on the lights.”
How do you flick the switch?

As a coach, you want to help people on their journey to happiness, success and fulfillment. But, when the time comes to talk about money, do you cringe, get nervous and wish someone else could take care of it (maybe the money fairies would bring you money while you sleep instead of having to take it from your clients)?
If this sounds familiar, first know you are not alone; a lot of coaches feel this way. However, this feeling is creating a huge block in your success. Therefore, it’s time to dive in to this and really look at why you feel this way and how to change it.
Why Does Money Get Such A Bad Rap?
In our society, most people have a love/hate relationship with money. Generally, people want more of it, yet secretly curse people who have a lot of it and think they are greedy. Uh oh. We have a little bit of a dilemma here.

Have you ever been to a networking event and felt like it was a waste of time? That perhaps you don’t really know what you are doing and that your time could have been better spent staying home and working on your new program (or maybe even going to the gym or to coffee with the girls)?
When you are first starting out, networking can be a bit overwhelming and seem a little bit like a maze of ‘what if’s’ and ‘should I’s?’. If that is the case for you, make sure you check out the Magic of Marketing Episode, How To Network Without Feeling Like I Am Using People. This video will help you get the ‘kinks’ out of networking and give you some practical tips on how to make it fun, interactive and useful for your business.
That blog post received a lot of feedback and comments so I wanted to do another post on what happens after the networking. You just spent a lot of your time and maybe money to be at this event, so now let’s make sure you maximize it.
Here are 3 Killer Marketing Strategies To Do AFTER The Networking Is Over…
