If every startup or entrepreneurial venture were a success, then the world would be full even more weird and wonderful businesses than it already is. However, it’s a well-known fact that the chances of a new business failing are higher than those of it succeeding, but that doesn’t keep tens of thousands of people every year from giving entrepreneurship a go every year. With that being said, it kind of makes sense to know what happens when a business goes bust and what you can save your sinking business in the first place so if you ever find yourself in either of these situations, you’ll know what to do so it doesn’t destroy your life and ruin the chances of starting any future businesses.
It wasn’t a desperate kind of yes, but a yes of deep understanding that the me that felt broken and beat down at a soul level and who had made the decisions that got me into the mess I was in wouldn’t be the me that could turn things around unless I got some help. Like, A LOT of help.
Maybe it was the hope that these programs represented for me that pushed me to the back of the room where I plunked down my credit cards to pay for the programs.
I literally felt like throwing up, I was so scared....
Can’t create the kind of money you want even though you’re doing everything “right”? Are you working really hard in your business but still can't get any traction? Or you've been stuck at the same small income level for way too long?
Find out the not-so-obvious causes of a lot of your money struggles! These 5 areas may be what are causing your problems ...and, thankfully, they're rather easy to fix.
Imagine having a private beach-front, 7-casita retreat home + yoga room with staff of 5 and a private chef on one of Thailand’s premier vacation destinations… all for your family’s vacation.
Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?
Wouldn’t you love to manifest something like that for yourself? Yeah, I wanted to, too.
And so I did. :-) Read on or watch the video to learn how I did it and you can, too.
Have you ever been faced with making a tough choice and felt overwhelmed by the process of simply making a decision?
Or not clear on which path is the “right” one for you now?
One of the biggest blocks to making a decision is the fear of making the wrong one. We’re afraid a decision that we make is going to somehow turn into Armageddon for our lives and it’s going to be the worst decision we’ve ever made. Then we’d have to deal with not only the terrible consequences but feeling ashamed and embarrassed that we made the “wrong” choice.
And that’s exactly what held me back for a long time… until I decided not to let it anymore.
Here are the steps that help me get unstuck and confidently move forward with the right decision for me.
Getting clients. Making sales. It’s the cornerstone to making any business work.
Yet so many businesses are getting the key piece to doing this totally wrong. Or they’re doing it poorly but don’t recognize what’s causing them to struggle to bring in new clients.
What’s this key missing piece? A compelling offer (aka, your messaging) that grabs your dream clients by their eyeballs.
Whether you’re making your offer in person, over the phone or via your website, there are three big offer mistakes that cause dream clients to click away, say “no” or run screaming in the other direction (or all three). If you’re having problems booking clients or selling your products, the first thing you should look at is how you’re communicating your offer.
In this article, you will learn what to focus on in your sales conversation so that your clients will be encouraged to sign up to your program, how to connect with what your clients need from you, and finally, how to communicate with your clients so they’ll be more than willing to pay for your services, even at higher fees.
“It’s better to give than to receive.”
“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
“Rich people are greedy / bad / selfish.”
I bet you heard at least one of these common sayings growing up, and maybe you even believe it.
But that’s a BIG problem if you’re an entrepreneur or you simply want to attract more money and abundance into your life. Associating money with greed, selfishness or general “badness” puts you at odds with the inherent urge you have to be a “good” person. And where there’s inner conflict, there are muddled outcomes.
It’s my belief that it serves the world when you charge enough money for you to not only stay in business but also thrive.
Otherwise, your business won’t be around to help the people who want and need want you offer.
The truth is that you are not selfish or greedy for charging more in your business. In this article I cover why you deserve to be paid high rates, why it’s important to be charging more than less, and how to position yourself in the market so you can attract your dream clients, even at higher fees.
Let’s dive right in!
Do you ever feel like you’re not enough? As an entrepreneur, as a parent, as a person?
That used to be one of my biggest struggles. What held me back from really putting myself out there as an entrepreneur and taking the steps to make myself visible was that I felt like I didn’t have enough to say. I struggled with feeling like my ideas weren’t good enough or original enough to share. And, I often second-guessed myself and wondered if people would actually find value in what I say and how I help them.
Then I called B.S. on myself. When I reached the point that my desire to help others was stronger than my fear of what others would think, I stepped into fully owning my value, no matter what. It's time you did that, too.
If you've been putting your all into your business and yet you're struggling to make it work, you might be making one of the biggest mistakes that entrepreneurs often make: not focusing on the core activities that really move the needle in your business.
There's so much information out there that you may not know exactly what you need to focus on. I'm breaking it down for you step by step in this video.
When you feel like you’re in a rut and yearning to break free…
When you know there’s no room for growth in your current job or venture…
When you're ready to break free from the treadmill of the corporate world and do your own thing...
How do you discover the gifts you’re meant to share and start to fully express them in a way that’s right for you?
That’s what this post is all about helping you do.
With all the negative events happening in the world right now, it can be easy to feel like we can’t do anything about it, but nothing can be farther from the truth. We as entrepreneurs can do so much to make a change in the world.
Not only can you make an impact through the specific work you do, you can be a source of inspiration and empowerment. Frankly, right now, the world needs a lot more of that. The world needs a lot of light and as much light as possible.
How, specifically, can you make a positive influence on the world through your business? Here are some steps to get you started.
When you think about what you want to accomplish over the next 12 months, what are big dreams and goals you have for yourself, your business and your family? Are you dreaming of having a different job? Of launching your own coarse? Working with dozens of amazing new clients? Or finally hitting the coveted six-figure mark in income?
Your big dreams may seem so far out of reach that the idea of going about actually making them happen makes your head spin. Even the act of writing down what you think needs to happen can feel overwhelming at first. Where people can get tripped up is that without a plan to make the goals happen, you’re really just wishing for something to happen instead of taking action to actually make it happen. That’s why creating your plan step-by-step is so important because without that structure, you can get off track and never reach your goals or dreams. This is also why so many people set the same goals and resolutions over and over each year because they lack the plan to make them happen.
But creating a plan to make your big dreams and goals happen doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. Once you determine the smaller steps you need to take to get there, it becomes practical, achievable and realistic for you to actually reach your goals and make your big dreams happen.
Here’s how to create a plan that makes doing it a lot easier.
What’s it really take to have what you want in life? To create the life you see others having that you wish you had?
When you’re in caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be easy to slip into a rut and let a big dream slowly fade into the past.
Or, you get so frustrated by your current circumstances and the distance between where you are right now and where you want to be that you miss the gifts you have right now.
The funny thing is that when you know where you’re going, but you’re at peace with where you are right now, turning the vision you have for your life into your real life becomes a lot easier.
Get 3 simple steps that will help you have more of what you want RIGHT NOW.
You seem to be doing everything right. You put in long hours, you work hard and you take action, but things aren’t happening like you want them to.
If you’re an entrepreneur, maybe you’re just not booking enough clients or bringing in enough money, so you’re struggling to stay in business. Or maybe you’ve been begging the Universe to send you a different job opportunity because you can’t stand the one you currently have, but for the life of you, you can’t find anything that you’d actually be excited to do.
When you’re getting a bunch of what you don’t want, how can you turn it around and start manifesting more of what you want? Here’s what you need to do to start doing it now.
We’re always hearing how important it is to be ambitious and to go after our dreams, and to work hard and make it happen.
I say the same things… and I have a big vision and ambitious goals for myself… and you probably do, too.
But here’s the tricky part…
If you’re so ambitious in the pursuit of making your dreams happen that you lose sight of what’s truly important in your life, then what does that ambition really get you?
Here's why you need to keep an eye on what matters most, especially when you're building a business of your own.
When you enter the online business world for the first time, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of tools, apps, and digital services available for selling your products online. I’ve been there, drowning in a sea of information trying to decide which one was right for me.

If you’re an online entrepreneur and you’re struggling to make sales, I feel your pain.
You’re in the same boat I was when I started my online business not so long ago.
Figuring out the all complicated tools that people say you HAVE to have is close to impossible if you're not a techie. I’ve spent countless hours pouring over tutorial videos, how-to instructions and pulling my hair out for a lot of it.
Even though I’ve managed to figure out a lot of it, I wondered, “Why can’t selling your stuff online be simple?”
Well... there is a simpler way with a tool I'm so glad I started using.
Defeat, setbacks, losing… they’re all inevitable parts of business and life, but how do you turn defeat into a success?
On the days when you’ve worked your butt off and no one buys from you…
Or no one watches your the video you spent weeks making…
Or you have a great conversation with a potential client and you think the sale is in the bag… and then she says no...
How do you get back in the saddle when you’ve taken a huge blow? That’s exactly what this post (and the accompanying video) is all about.
There’s a sneaky trap that keeps a lot of solopreneurs struggling… It’s the feeling that they simply need to do MORE.
More blog posts, more marketing, more being on social media.
Does this sound familiar?
But instead of actually making real progress, you end up simply feeling OVERWHELMED, PARALYZED or like you’re just SPINNING YOUR WHEELS.
Your to-do list is a mile long and simply looking at it can throw you into a panic or a hopeless depression that you’ll never get it all done.
You deserve better! And it’s actually pretty simple to make real progress in your business when you know the right steps.
