    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…

    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…

    This May Seem Counterintuitive & it Works…

    I’ve read a lot of books on productivity and getting more done. Check out the NOTES section below for some interesting resources that will help. What I decided to do when I moved last week was test my theory about productivity. If I gave the three guys who were moving us pizza, hinted at a good tip for a job well done, and a break between moving houses, would they be more productive? This might seem counterproductive to you, especially knowing I was paying them by the hour. So it’d make sense just to make them push through, cuz why would I want to pay for them to take a break for lunch that…

    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…

    It’s Moving Day – Ready?

    My executive coach always shared with me how important it is that you have a plan for EVERYTHING. And she had a saying – “Planning promotes perfect performance.” Well, in this instance, I had a plan, yet, things came up as they do, which delayed some packing and other plans to get the house in order. What’s interesting is no matter how much I plan, it’s like our stuff keeps multiplying! I think it’s a phenomena that all people who are moving experience – am I right? Every time I turn around I see stuff to pack. I’ve been at it for the past 3 days, and now my brain is on…

    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…

    Happy 2022 – What’s Next?!

    We did it – we made it into another new year! I have to admit it wasn’t as smooth a ride as I’d hoped.  How about you?The year had some major ups and downs (like when I injured my back), and the end of the year was a wee bit bumpier than I had expected… Yet, my spouse and I survived – intact and with no virus….  I’m not sure how I didn’t come down with the virus because I had some work at the Disney Parks in Orlando in early December and it was CRAZY. Hundreds of thousands of people were there, where masks were only required indoors.  Picture…

    I Did Something a Little Crazy

    Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone and done something a little crazy, or maybe out of your ordinary routine, or stretched your beliefs? Well, that’s what I did last week. I bought a course for $6,000. Ummmm, yeah, a little out there for me cuz I’ve not ever spent that amount of money on a course before. I’ve spent upwards of $25k on a year-long mastermind, and I’ve also spent $5k for a 3-day weekend training. And, I’ve spent $12k a year to be in Brian Kurtz’s Masterclass, which was like a mastermind, where we met three times a year in person. (Yeah, before the pandemic.) Plus,…

    It’s Time to Make Peace With This…

    Being on this planet for 50+ years, I feel like I’ve done a lot, seen a lot, and experienced a lot. Yet other times, I feel like such a newbie. Do you ever have that feeling? When it comes to Thanksgiving, several things come to mind. I mean, I have seen my fair share of this holiday. Yet, why must I do the same thing every year? Hmmmm it got me thinking… In fact, on my walk today, I was reminiscing about my favorite Thanksgiving – the one right after my 12-year relationship ended and Debbie Phillips (Founder WomenOnFire.com) and Rob Berkley invited me to spend the holiday in Martha’s…
