    How to develop your second brain & get more done!

    Back in the fall of 2010, I had the opportunity to meet one of the greats of business and personal development. He’s written over 70 books, created over 300 courses, and is considered a top coach and consultant. His book was one of the first that I read when I started my business – Maximum Achievement (Others – Goals!,The Psychology of Selling, andChange Your Thinking Change Your Life.) I learned so much from him when I started my business. I was working for a client at his live event, and this man was presenting. I was thrilled when my client gave me the opportunity to meet and connect with this person. This man was…

    I have a confession to make…

    As I’ve said in many emails before – I truly do love to learn. It motivates me, and it’s even more inspiring to share what I learn with you and with my clients. This is where my confession begins – with my ABL (always be learning) attitude, I’ve bought a lot of online learning products over the years. Here comes the confession part – because of the above, there are quite a few courses that I’ve NEVER finished. THERE I said it. Whew. Am I alone in my confession? Have you ever bought any online learning products that you’ve not ever finished? Sometimes it’s kind of the worst feeling. Almost…

    What 6 – 7 figure idea are you sitting on?

    We had a lot of activity at our house last week. It’s hard to believe we’ve already lived in the house for three months now! We had the shower glass guys replace the walk-in shower and we had the construction guys come and build my spouse’s new stained glass studio. (The shower door coming off was one of my posts a month ago – you can read about that post here.) (See the P.S. For the before and after shower pictures.) What was really cool about the studio is we bought it with a company called Tuff Shed. We ordered it to our specifications. Then they came out about 6 weeks later…

    What kind of help do you give your clients or colleagues?

    Have you ever worked with a client who had some specific things they wanted you to help them with and you weren’t sure these things would work? What did you do? 1. Did you go along with them and give them advice and simply do the work they wanted? 2. Or did you tell them their plan had some flaws and wasn’t as good as it could be, and you proposed to help them come up with an even better plan? Seth Godin recently mentioned this kind of help in his blog. The second option is actually rarer – and in fact, more useful. Plus, it’s a bit harder to do. You have…

    The interesting secret of how Warren Buffett & Other great leaders create success

    Have you ever read any books or articles about great leaders like Gloria Steinem, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg? The one “secret” they and many other successful leaders have in common is the mindset that I LOVE — A.B.L. – Always Be Learning. This is a critical piece to creating a life you love – always be learning, growing, and being open to new ideas and new things, which leads to having a beginner’s mind. Have you gone to a live event or virtual event, and you’re sitting there listening to a speaker, and your mind says, “Oh, they’re not saying anything new. Go check your email and pretend…

    Throwback to 2012 – living authentically

    This week I’m going to throwback to an earlier post I did in 2012 – 5 Steps to Daring Greatly and Living Authentically, where I talked about my experience of meeting Brene Brown when she was on Katie Couric’s DayTime TV Show that’s since been canceled. On this show, she interviewed Brene Brown on the launch of her then-new book – Daring Greatly. This was right at the start of her trajectory as an author and speaker. It was an amazing experience being in the audience, then meeting and connecting with her backstage (I knew the Supervising Producer for the show.), and having her sign my book. I’m sharing this post again because the message about authentically…

    Busting the Magic Bullet Myth

    I don’t usually “bust” anything in these emails, and today is an exception. I’ve had several prospects take me up on my offer of scheduling a complimentary call with me this past few weeks. Honestly, I LOVE doing these calls. My favorite thing about these calls is for that hour. I can practice my listening skills and help someone with a significant challenge and give them at least one or more solutions to guide them to their answer. Another reason I love these calls is that it’s an opportunity to get access to my dream client and find out what makes them tick. Such as – what are they struggling…

    The shower debacle – guides are essential!

    It’s hard to believe it’s already been six weeks since we’ve been in our house. And we definitely love it and the dogs too! We created a long term plan of some things we want to change and renovate. What we didn’t expect was that we’d have to do some now. On Sunday, I hear a yell from the bathroom for help. It’s my spouse who’s standing there, holding the shower door that had fallen off. I went in to help her and saw that the hinge had broken. So what do you do when that happens? Of course, you Google “fix shower door!” We found a shower glass replacement…

    It’s Time to Change Your Stories

    What are the stories you keep telling yourself? You know, the ones when it comes to putting yourself out there in a big way to promote your business – “Oh, this won’t work. Someone else has already created something like this. I need to come up with a new idea.” Or “Who do I think I am trying to sell and promote this course? I don’t have enough experience.” Or “I can’t ask for $500. That’s way too much for this course. I don’ think they will pay it.” Can you relate to any of the above statements? It’s essential to pay attention to those thoughts that pop into your…

    Changing Your Perspective

    Thanks for all the comments last week on our fascinating adventure to buy a new home. All is well, we got into the house and doing some painting, and the official move is next week. It’s interesting how some specific things about buying and selling homes have changed because of the pandemic. Specifically, at closing, everyone being in the same room to sign all the papers and being able to celebrate afterward. Yeah, that won’t happen. We had a mobile notary who came over to the house, and we signed the mountains of papers, and after we were done – It just felt a little weird and anti-climatic. I knew…
