Communication, Gratitude and an Ah-Ha Moment!

I have a special message to share with you that is pretty near and dear to my heart.

My sister gave me a gift quite a while ago, and it has this famous quote on it:

“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I’ve heard this quote MANY times over the years. Every single day, without fail, I look at my gift and see it looking back at me. But for some reason, during a recent daily peek at the quote, it stopped me dead in my […]

6 Tips to Survey Your Audience and Monetize Your Business

I’m excited to share a quick tip that will help to ensure that you’re giving your customers what they really want (and monetizing your business in the process!). It’s a total win-win!

Survey your audience!

Sounds like a no-brainer, huh? But most people aren’t doing this. If you’re one of them, I highly encourage you to try it out. You won’t be sorry!

Here’s what to do:

Mark your calendar so that once each quarter, you send a brief survey out to your audience.

Try to limit the survey to 5 questions (you want to respect their time!).

Let them know that you want to […]

So, here’s a big question for you. Do you end your day at the office in a way that leaves you feeling productive and stress-free? Do you step away from your work feeling organized and confident about how you’ll tackle the next day? If not, wouldn’t you love […]

How to Make Realistic Resolutions That Stick!

I hope you’re in the mood for some motivation because I want to get you fired up to make resolutions for this new year that actually stick!

For many people, it’s the same pattern every year. Just before the New Year, they’re SO excited for a fresh start. They make resolutions that they swear they’ll stick to. They promise themselves that this year will be different.

The new year starts, and in no time at all (typically less than TWO WEEKS!) the motivation fades, excuses run rampant and those goals become a thing of the past. It’s because we set too many […]

Marketing Titles That Sizzle and Sell

I want to address this idea of super sexy marketing titles for eBooks and blog posts because come on…. that can prevent you from publishing content confidently right?!

So many entrepreneurs think that getting results is all about coming up with that snap-crackle-pop title. Yet, we are also so over-stimulated by the sizzle that we can’t tell which products are actually good!

If you have a webinar, product or service and you’re delaying pushing it out because you are rethinking and rethinking the title, I say go with your gut instinct and get it out to the world!

Yes, of COURSE you […]

The Lonely Side of Entrepreneurship

I’m going to point out the elephant in the room… being an online entrepreneur can be lonely.

As exciting as entrepreneurship is, so many of us occasionally find ourselves in that lonely place. And guess what? That’s totally normal and expected.

Why do we feel this way?

Because what we do is a crazy, exciting, challenging, stressful, amazing thrill ride of an adventure, and not everyone can relate. You might have friends or family members who don’t really understand what you’re doing or why you’re doing it. (But, man, is it incredibly exciting when you connect with someone who does understand!) And because […]
