Creating Spaciousness

Wow.  The response to the “hidden” poem I shared  a few weeks ago was incredible!  I lost count of the number of emails and shares I received thanking me for it.  I’m so glad that it touched so many people. Clearly the idea of slowing down resonated deeply.  I know it did for me, as this year feels like it’s …

On space, silence and slowing down (and a prayer)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here.  2018 got off to a rocky start in my household.  And I found myself really needing lots of space. At first, I resisted and carried on internal arguments with myself about pushing forward with my 2018 plans even as we were dealing with some challenges.  But I eventually relented and knew it …

On finally breaking ground….

On Tuesday we finally broke ground on an addition to our home.  A new kitchen and master bath are underway! It’s an exciting, slightly chaotic time. We’ve been talking about expanding our small, poorly laid out kitchen and adding another bathroom for a long time. But as we walked around our home, we couldn’t visualize a way to make it …

When what you do is difficult to describe

When what you do is powerful, but difficult to describe, it can be a challenge to create offers that sell. The key is to find the ‘tangible’ in your intangible process so that you can communicate it clearly.  When you do that, it’s much easier to get known for work that’s uniquely your own. Recently I heard from a former …

5 Go To Questions to Guide Your Business

Tomorrow is my 49th Birthday and it’s putting me in a reflective mood.  I tend to use the month of July to set the direction and vision for the year ahead.  IT works better for me mid year than in January.  Maybe it’s because I take quite a bit of down time every summer to hang with my kids and …

The Best Laid Plans…

I was excited to welcome in January and a New Year.  I had plans, as we often do at the start of New Year.  But you know the common saying… “the best laid plans…” Simply put, January was full of breakdowns.  It started with a server crash that took out my websites and email for several days.  Then I ran …

New Year Planning Resources for You!

Happy New Year! I spent the first few days of 2017 doing some reflecting, assessing and planning.  You probably have too.  I know you are eager to get off on the right foot in the New Year and set your businesses up for success, fulfillment and impact. After putting my 2017 strategy together I thought I’d share my planning process …

What do you stand for?

A central element of any successful business is a memorable and consistent customer experience.  If you’re not selling well or getting much repeat business, it could be that your customer experience isn’t consistent. Creating a consistent experience for your customers at all stages of the relationship—from before they become a customer all the way until they complete with you–is a …

What’s going on in the market? It’s a new era….

I was having dinner with a colleague the other night (we met 10 years ago at an Internet Marketing conference…the early days! lol) and we got to talking about trends and transitions we’ve seen in the broader market online for coaching, consulting and personal development services. The business world as we know it today is vastly different than the one …
