Divorce & Money

By | General Biz, Success Mindset | No Comments

My divorce in 2013 brought up ALLLL kinds of money fears for me (can I do this on my own? will I have to sell my house? what if my business goes down and I have to get a job?) I had a moment this week looking at my money spreadsheet and was surprised by what I found…

Where do you stop? 

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

After 1 time? 3 times? 10 times? On a podcast I was listening to recently the speaker shared a statistic that diets are way more likely to be successful after the 7th time of trying it. That each time a person tries a diet, they are developing and strengthening neural pathways that at a certain point become natural. They become habit. And that is when a person is more likely to find success. The other side of this coin means that the first 6 times will feel like a failure! <— and that’s the rub. That’s the hard part. How does this show up for us in business? When I…

the big eek!

The big eek!

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

One of the things we talked about on our Intersection call last week was the big ‘Eeek!’ And how one of the ways we know we are tapping into our zone of genius – our calling – is that it comes with some Eeek! attached to it. It feels scary. Risky. It might even feel downright terrifying. Why is the big Eeek! a part of this process? There are a couple of reasons: 1) Our resistance/ego is triggered when we come face to face with our calling – and it is going to stir up ALLLL our stuff. All our worries, doubts and fears. All the reasons why it won’t…

letting go of this was a doozy!

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

“Authentic growth comes from what we don’t know” ~ The Presence Process The question is – are we willing to go there? When I was on retreat back in August we did a ritual where we released something that was no longer serving us. I choose to release “needing to figure it all out”. I wanted to be purposeful to tap more into my intuition and spiritual guidance. Well beware what you wish for right? Letting go of the need to figure things out is a doozy! Especially when I’m really good at it. Especially when I’ve made a living from it. Especially for a control freak like me who likes…

we need you 

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

Don’t let anyone try to tell you that your calling is too small. That it should be some grandiose, “I want to be the next Oprah” kind of calling. That you should want to build an empire and make millions. That you should become “more like this person” and less like who you already are. That is some serious BS right there. Because callings come in all different shapes and sizes. The world needs visionaries & doers. Planners & leaders. Writers & speakers. Techies & artists. Designers & maintainers. Teachers & researchers. The world needs solopreneurs and entrepreneurs. It needs companies of one and companies of many. It needs those…

celebrating 20 years in business

By | Leadership, Success Mindset | No Comments

I started my business in September of 1999. At the time I had no big plans. No big vision. Nor did I have any idea what I was getting myself into. 😉 I just said yes to a consulting gig that came my way and jumped in with both feet. And here I am 20 years later – a completely different person than I was in the beginning. I look back on these first 20 years as one of the greatest blessings of my life. Through my business I’ve learned who I am. I’ve owned my strengths – my gifts – and have seen where I’m trying to be something…
