Q&A–How Can I Look Professional If I Don’t Have a Website?
A client recently told me she didn’t feel professional when she was marketing her mobile massage business because she didn’t have a website to direct people to when she told them about her business–especially when she was speaking with large businesses about hiring her to provide on-site massage services at their office or events.
“I feel like I have to have a website to direct them to where they can read more about my background and my services, and to ‘prove’ that I am a professional, or to have people find me when searching online for massage services.”

How Can You Get Help When You Have No Money to Pay for Coaching?
Guest Blog, David Neagle
Today's blog post comes from one of my favorite mentors, David Neagle, from his portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life.”

Do you need to let go of something you should have let of a long time ago?
Are you experiencing changes in your life that will eventually lead to a better and more free “you”?

Are You an "Innie" or an "Outie"?
Did I get you curious with this question title? And what does a belly button have to do with business?
What I'm actually referring to here is whether you are someone who focuses on the outer environment/circumstances as the cause & effect of their business success (or lack of success) or someone who focuses on the internal (mind) environment as the cause & effect of their business success (or lack).
Which one is better to focus on?
