    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…

    Anticipation keeps me….

    Yep and an oldie song for sure by Carly Simon that will forever remind me of the Heinz Ketchup commercial – An-tic–ip–aaaaa-tion keeps me waaaaaiiittting….” How about you? Of course, there’s more to anticipation than just this song… I want to share with you some potential mind-bending thoughts about anticipation. Let’s start with this question – How well have you anticipated your dream client/customer’s online experience on your website? This can be a challenging one to answer because if you’re like most of my clients, you create an online dream client/customer experience like what’s below. You create your lead generator optin to build your list of dream clients/customers. Create your thank…

    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…

    By defying logic you can create incredible success – hmmmmm

    I love counterintuitive ideas and things that really get my mind spinning – much like a chew toy does for a dog… The one I want to share with you today is about how when you *defy logic. You can actually create some tremendous success. No, I’m not talking about feats of engineering or technology. I’m talking about the idea of perception vs. reality. And about alchemy and magic. Let’s say you think of a good idea for a business. And it’s really a good idea, one that others have done, yet, you’re going to turn that industry on its head. Yet, when you share the idea and if you start…

    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…

    Does this ever happen to you?

    Sometimes I sit at my desk, staring at my three computer monitors, wondering if everyone who has a business online struggles with the same issues… Like today, I’m trying to stay on top of my “subscriber” email box, so it doesn’t get to 12k emails ever again. Thank goodness for my new assistant, who’s been helping me keep it around 300 or so unopened… Before you jump ahead in thinking that my “Subscriber” inbox is out of control and how do I answer emails, etc.… You need to know that this email box is for all the products, services, newsletters, and lists I buy or subscribe to. So when I’m writing…

    Are you good at finding things?

    There’s been one thing that somewhat mystifies me, and that’s my ability to find things that are lost. I can’t really explain it, except when I can’t find something, there’s an inner voice that actually whispers to me where I can find that lost item. I know, I know, this may sound a bit crazy, and before you think that I hear voices, let me explain further… It’s been two weeks since we’ve moved to our new house, and one of our most used questions has been – “Hey honey have you seen the [insert name of item here]?” I thought we did a pretty awesome job at packing, yet,…

    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…

    This is Not for the Faint of Heart

    Two weeks into 2022, it’s already proving to be somewhat of an adventure and not for the faint of heart. Interestingly, “Adventure” is my word for the year, and it didn’t disappoint. I like picking a word for the year that I use as my decision touchstone.  There was an excellent article in the NY Times if you want to discover more. I think I mentioned in an earlier email that we’re buying a house. It’s about 10 minutes from our current one. Or if I didn’t, well here you go … 🙂  Now that we’re nearly done with the whole buying process (We’re closing today.), it has been a…

    Would you ever consider joining a cult?

    I know, a crazy question, right? Well… Of course, you are probably saying to yourself – “No way, that’s kind of crazy. Who in the right mind would join a cult?” Yeah, I know, I hear you, and I agree with you. Yet, let me share some interesting myths about cults with you: Most people think that those who join cults are not very intelligent or have psychological problems. Ummm, nope, that’s not correct. Believe it or not, most people who join cults are very intelligent and are psychologically sound. People knowingly join cults – Most people don’t or wouldn’t ever join a cult. What usually happens to them is like a frog…
