Don’t Be Wearing Two Hats

Don’t Be Wearing Two Hats

Have you ever introduced yourself at a business function by saying “I’m here today wearing two hats.” I hear that a lot. To your audience, that sounds like:  “Hi, I’m a rocket scientist and I sell gift baskets on the side…” Don’t be saying that! Choose one and wear it! I know it’s tempting. You think we’ll be more impressed if we see the full range of your many talents. We won’t. The Power of Focus Movie makers understand, betterContinue Reading

Accountability is Worth Paying for: Hire a Coach!

Accountability is Worth Paying for: Hire a Coach!

I’m not crazy about the term coach, although it’s come to hold many different meanings. I prefer to think of myself as more of a business strategist and perhaps even a mentor. The job of a coach, strategist, or mentor is really to guide clients to manifest their dreams, whether it’s in the area of life, health, business, career — or whatever it is they hire you for. The term “coaching” generally means to take an idea and clarify itContinue Reading

What Have You Decided About Yourself?

What Have You Decided About Yourself?

“There is a Way Through Every Block” This quote graced the tank top of my yoga instructor in class today. Most entrepreneurs have an editorial calendar that dictates what they blog about every week. Not me. I go to yoga class for inspiration. Or, I walk in the park, where ideas seemingly fall from the clear blue sky. My philosophy is that if you truly want a freedom-based business, do what works for you as an individual rather than followingContinue Reading

4 Keys to a Successful 4-Hour Workweek

4 Keys to a Successful 4-Hour Workweek

I just returned from a 10-day trip to Florida, where we hopped around the state, visiting four sets of relatives. It was an experiment in working remotely, since I didn’t want to reschedule or put everything on hold, only to have to work twice as much when I returned home. My goal was to achieve the elusive 4-hour work week (made popular by Tim Ferriss in his book by the same name), and I was successful in doing that, but here’sContinue Reading

When It Comes to Shining In Your Business, Are You Dancing In the Dark? 3 Tips On Lighting Your Spark from Bruce Springsteen

When It Comes to Shining In Your Business, Are You Dancing In the Dark? 3 Tips On Lighting Your Spark from Bruce Springsteen

I love Bruce Springsteen. I was fortunate enough to snag last-minute tix to the one Philadelphia show of the E Street Band’s 2016 The River Tour. Bruce waxed poetic — as he often does – about the making of the album and how it was a coming of age project and a reflection of life in so many areas. He talked about his parents’ struggle, young love, the first kiss, and other tales that I’m sure most of the audience couldContinue Reading

Do You Need Branding, or Just a Business Card?

Do You Need Branding, or Just a Business Card?

I get quite a few inquiries from entrepreneurs who say they need branding. Makes sense, since I do call myself a branding expert. When I hear someone say, “I need branding,” I get excited. I have this preconceived notion (especially after visiting their website) that what they need is a visual identity, or help in finding clarity in what they stand for in their business, or perhaps coming up with an expert title and tag line — something that involvesContinue Reading

Keeping Promises Keeps You In Integrity

Keeping Promises Keeps You In Integrity

We’re almost a full month into 2016 already, and I’m wondering, How are you doing with those promises you made to yourself on January 1 to make this your best year ever? to work less and enjoy life more? to get in better shape? to spend less and save more? You know your promises – you’ve probably made them more than once in the past. Some you have kept; many are nagging reminders of unfulfilled commitments. In Body for Life,Continue Reading

“When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in Harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual brain in the group.” Napolean Hill, Think and Grow Rich On January 6, I celebrated 10 years as an entrepreneur, and over those 10 years I can say with conviction that the greatest investment I have made in my business is investing in myself through coaching and mentoring and being part of Mastermind groups. Mastermind groupsContinue Reading

I’ve Got My Word for 2016. How About You?

I’ve Got My Word for 2016. How About You?

I took the Facebook quiz, What is your word for 2016, and mine happens to be Future. I’ll have lots of happiness and make lots of connections. That’s great to hear, but to ensure that happiness and the time for more connections, I’ve added a word of my own for the New Year: Boundaries. It’s been coming a long time. As a nurturer archetype, I tend to put other people first, especially when it comes to how I spend myContinue Reading
