One of the simple pleasures of being an entrepreneur is control over my schedule. A call ended early, I had a few minutes, my daughter is home since school ended but summer school hasn’t started, so she asked me to play badminton for a few minutes, and I said “yes.” If I had been at Continue Reading...more

Recently, in a client call, the client mentioned having a hole in his / her life. I hear this fairly frequently, lots of people have it, and they try to fill it up with success or money or someone else’s love or approval, but it doesn’t work, and in the process of pursuing the thing Continue Reading...more
During an open call-in call today, one person said that the voices that rob her of her confidence were like “demons,” and fighting them took a lot of energy. I told her about my own theory about our internal “demons,” based on my own growth work, which was that rather than seeing them as monsters or Continue Reading...more
So, there is a new book out entitled “The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know,” by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. I have a feeling that this book is going to be this year’s “Lean In,” the one that everyone talks about. The book discusses how otherwise competent and hard-working women self-sabotage, or just Continue Reading...more
Recently, I reached out to a lawyer and a roofer, because I needed their services. I’ve been a bit busy, so I didn’t get back to them right away. One, the lawyer, reached out after a few weeks.

I love working with women like this. It’s great watching these already Continue Reading...more
One of my clients recently adopted this as her new mantra: “Winners take imperfect action while everyone else is perfecting their plans.” Unless you’re in brain surgery or air traffic control, this is the best way to live, you’ll get WAY more done with this mindset. I suspect a lot of perfectionists are simply trying Continue Reading...more
Big day for technology. I had been outsourcing a lot, but I hated that, it took too long. I will probably still outsource a lot of maintenance, but I can CREATE on my own! I pointed the name servers for a new site to the host, installed WordPress and OptimizePress, and I’ve started designing. I Continue Reading...more
Recently, while reading the book “Manifesting Wealth” by Taylor Ellwood, I read about Survive vs Thrive mindsets. I thought about it some more, and what comes up for me is that the Survive mindset is about getting through the immediate situation. An extreme example of this is if your life is literally threatened, for example, Continue Reading...more
I have been working with a lot of small business owner clients recently, and small business owners are ALWAYS concerned with finding more customers / clients, so marketing and sales are frequently a topic of conversation. One thing that has come up A LOT recently in our calls, and which I have also noticed in Continue Reading...more
