An interesting thing happened recently on a call with a new client. As a mindset coach and business strategist, my goal is to help clients build businesses that bring them joy.
Because if it isn't fun, what's the point?
To do that you need three ingredients:
1. A strategy that you like executing (I've met SO many entrepreneurs who are marketing their businesses in ways that do not feel good to them);
2. A business model that serves your purpose, allows you to be profitable AND makes you happy;
3. An unstoppable mindset to help you move past the difficult times (and there are A LOT), create healthy boundaries, stay focused on what YOU want and take consistent action from a place of confidence and courage!
When you combine these three ingredients the result is a joyful business that thrives.
As you are going about building your business, it can be easy to one day wake up and go... "Hold on! I'm not having any fun anymore!"
It's usually because one of these three things are off.
In this video I talk about a recent experience with a client that sparked VERY interesting conversation that, if you are feeling even a little frustrated in your business will help you look at what could be going wrong so you can fix it.
Have you experienced this before?

Have you ever had one of those days where you felt like you were so busy but you didn't actually get anything productive done? Nothing that really moved you forward in your business?
This can happen quite easily if we aren't careful with our time.
If that's you, and you want to have a VERY productive year ahead, you'll love this tip on how to use your time more effectively.
Watch it and leave a comment letting me know that you'll commit to doing it!

The other day I was in Starbucks working away and an older gentleman came in, looked at me for longer then a normal quick glance and then asked me, "What are you pushing?"
I said, "Excuse me?"
He responded, "What are you pushing? With your message?"
I didn't get what he was talking about until he pointed to my computer and then I remembered, oh yes, my computer skin!
My computer skin says, Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire! (Don't mind the smushy air pockets, I still haven't figured out how to get rid of them!)
Now understanding what he was refering to I responded, "I'm not pushing anything."
To which he replied quickly, 'It's like your philosophy on life?'
"Yes", I said.
He nodded and went about his business.
I thought about this conversation and the timeliness of it knowing that this blog post was about to come out (thanks universe for the epic timing once again to enrich this powerful lesson).
The thing is, I don't believe in pushing anything. In fact, anytime I have 'pushed' for something, it has totally backfired. It made it too hard, too long and too much.
It was never worth the effort (other than perhaps instilling the lesson to stop pushing?! LOL).
What I have found is when you attract and allow, in life and in business, things are much easier, flow better and move in the direction of where you want to go.
That's why I'm excited about today's video on one thing you can do that is seemingly 'backwards' in sales, but will actually propel you forward faster and help you have incredible clients that you love!
Watch it in this week's video and then leave a comment and let me know your experience with this approach.

Black Friday has just past us and the sales were everywhere. Much to my surprise, I even saw many coaches, consultants and other service professionals joining the Black Friday train - and not just on their small priced products - on their large packages.
But is this really a good way to get new clients? To discount your services - especially your BIG packages?
The quick answer is NO.
And that's capitalized for a reason.
When it comes to your higher priced services, you shouldn't discount them.
Even if you think it will get you new clients.
There are three solid reasons why that I cover in this video.
You'll also learn the one and *only* time it's okay to do it (this is the only exception).

Do you ever find yourself getting a lot of 'stuff' done but at the end of the day you didn't really get anything meaningful done towards your goals?
When this happens day after day and week after week, that's when you wake up and realize you aren't any closer to your goals.
It happens to the best of us!
However, with 2019 around the corner you'll want to make sure that this doesn't happen to you next year (or the years after that!)
In today's video you'll discover 4 steps you can come back to anytime, to ensure that you stay off 'busy street' and stay on the path to your goals.
