    The 3 Most Horrible Product Launch Mistakes Entrepreneurs Make and How You Can Avoid them!

    Back in 2007 when I met Jeff Walker at his first ever PLF  (Product Launch Formula) event in Denver, Colorado, I was amazed at what he’d done to make money with his products by turning his selling of them into a value added, value laden, fun and entertaining  “event.”  He actually created a product about these launch events and called it “Product Launch Formula.” I’ve been doing tons of product launches for my clients since then, and I’ve amassed a ton of information on how to be successful with your launches.

What issues are raising your anxiety level? How is your bottom line? Have you achieved all the goals you set in January? If not, then why?

    How to Take Bigger Risks This Year

    Something fascinating happened to me a few years ago that was worth repeating. I had this experience that totally changed my perspective on how I would think and do things in my business and my personal life. Here’s what happened— I had decided to go to the DMV, yes everyone’s favorite place to make jokes about.  I had been putting it off for almost a year and I had to finally deal with getting a new title. I actually wanted to cross if off my to-do list!  (I had paid off my car loan—yeah, and needed to get the lien holder name off my car title.) I had a phone…

    What My Chestnut Chasing Dog Taught Me About Implementation & Getting More Done!

    It’s fall here in Virginia and I know that not only because there’s a little chill in the air, and … I know because now when I got to hiking with my rescue dog Lily, she chases after all the chestnuts falling from the trees.  The whole scene is actually quite comical, albeit sometimes a little frustrating.  We get a pretty good pace going, then all of sudden we come across this huge patch of several hundred chestnuts on the ground and more falling. (In fact, I have to be careful and often dodge those falling from the trees or they get me right on the old noggin.) As soon as Lily sees…

    It all Boils Down to Courage- Do You Have What it Takes?

    One of my favorite quotes is “Fall down 7 times, get up 8” by Buddha.  It’s such a subtle quote and so much where I’ve been these past 8 months. I can’t believe I haven’t written since October of last year!  Or maybe I can after I tell you all I’ve been going through—and it really does “all boil down to courage…” Have you ever had the rug pulled out from under you?
