6 Quick tips and resources to improve your marketing efforts in 2017

Are you guilty of “last-minute marketing” (marketing your business or events spur-of-the-moment, instead of planning and promoting them strategically)? I used to do that all the time. 

Now I have less stress and better results by planning a large portion of my events (successful repeats and new ideas) for the coming year at the end of each year. Here are 6 tips to get you started so YOU can get more business in 2017 and have more fun doing it.

What I Learned from a Gym Locker About Expectations

When I go to the gym, I stop in the locker room to put my extra things in a locker. I noticed one day that I had a habit of hesitantly opening each locker to see if it was free.

Sometimes I would find a free one first off and sometimes I would have to open several to find one empty. But it was that sense of hesitancy that I suddenly realized one day was always there. [Read more…]

9-Gamut Technique for Calming Stress and Negative Emotions

Let’s face it. Being a business owner can be stressful–a lot! And often requires stepping out of our comfort zone to try new things, take risks, and put ourselves out there, which naturally initiates a feeling of fear, doubt, and uncertainty. 

These emotions can cause us to procrastinate on taking action, diminish our creative thinking, drain our confident energy when communicating with others, and engage in unproductive habits–all sabotaging our potential to be and achieve our best.

But how do you stop that “emotion train” once it’s “left the station?” It can seem impossible, even if you’re consciously telling yourself to “snap out of it.”

My go-to technique is EFT (emotional freedom techniques) and I’d like to share with you one of its derivatives, the 9-Gamut Technique, in a quick tutorial video.

How to Sabotage Your Coaching

This post is meant to speak to two groups:
1. Coaches
2. People working with a coach (or contemplating working with a coach)

The coaching process can be very powerful in helping shorten the learning curve of attaining a goal and improving one’s potential to achieve greater things. Yet, many who hire a coach fail to experience the immense benefit that great coaching can provide. Why?

Because of a breakdown in the basic foundations and structure of the coaching process.

If you are spending time and money to work with a coach, make sure to read this post to help prevent yourself from sabotaging your results. If you are a coach, this post can help you be on the lookout for any early signs of dysfunction on either of your parts that can lead to a frustrating experience with your client, so you can turn it around.

mind changeRewiring Your Brain to a New Reality (Part 3 of 4)
Dr. Joe Dispenza, Guest Video Blog

As we continue this series for a “fresh start” in the new year by understanding how our brain works (for us and against us), here is part 3 of this 4-part video series.

In video 3, Dr. Dispenza continues his scientific explanation of how people continue to see themselves as victims based on their pre-programmed filters and how what we see as “reality” is merely a result of our limited perception. Yet we can also rewire our genetic and early brain programming (50% from our parents) to “see” a new “reality.”

Happy (belated) New Year!

If you’re like most people, you’re looking at this turn of the calendar as an excuse for a “fresh start.” Whether you made “resolutions” or just thought about what you’d like to do or experience differently this year, there are things you’d like to change.

Unfortunately, statistics state that most New Year’s Resolutions don’t make it past mid-February. And why is that? It’s because what really needs to change in order for transformation to last is what most people never give attention to or even know how to utilize effectively–the subconscious mind.

3 Steps to Handle a “Bad” Situation or Experience

Life and business can be a roller coaster of “ups & downs,” “highs and lows,” and what we label “good” and “bad.”

Although I work on teaching my clients how to stop labeling things “good” and “bad”–therefore minimizing the suffering they create for themselves by doing so–this post is about how to better handle things you are currently labeling bad vs. being self-actualized enough to eliminate the perception of something as “bad” in the first place. 

There are 3 questions to ask yourself that will help you gain a different perspective on the situation and shift your response to it (lessening the negative emotion and improving the decisions you make about what actions you take to respond to it), thereby better assuring a positive outcome.
