Change Your Habits and Your Business Will Change

Change Your Habits and Your Business Will Change

One of the biggest areas most entrepreneurs fall short in is what I term “consistent action.” Consistent action means daily, weekly or monthly activities that move your business forward. If you’re not doing something daily, weekly or monthly to move your business forward, it typically shows in your bottom line profits. You may not be hearing what I’m telling you if you’re stuck in your excuses or focused on your distractions. I AM speaking to you if you’re ready toContinue Reading

Stand for Something and Stand Out!

Stand for Something and Stand Out!

Is Your Business in Alignment with What You Stand For? Have you even figured out what you stand for? In the Sizzle System of Personal Branding, my 6-step signature plan that guides entrepreneurs through the branding process, the first thing we do is a core values assessment to determine this. Our core values and principles are the guides to how we live our life. We might not even be aware of what they are until we do the inner workContinue Reading

Is Fear Blocking You from Greater Abundance?

Is Fear Blocking You from Greater Abundance?

You may already know that I hosted my first telesummit this year, The Sizzle to Abundance World Summit 2016, where I brought together 12 thought leaders to share their success secrets. I wanted to focus on the fears that hold many entrepreneurs back from playing a bigger game and achieving true abundance. An unlikely topic from a branding coach? Not really. Personal branding is my focus but when I work with my clients, it really comes down to personal developmentContinue Reading

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

5 Secrets to Writing an About Page That Turns Prospects Into Paying Clients!

5 Secrets to Writing an About Page That Turns Prospects Into Paying Clients!

Throw away everything you know about bios when it comes to writing your About page copy. Your About page is not your resume. It’s meant to inform readers about how you can help them and to attract the type of paying clients that you desire. Your About page is going to get more views than almost every other page on your website, so you want to make it work for you. Here are 5 secrets to writing an About page that speaksContinue 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
