I lost a few clients last week. No one is immune from our current reality. I call people who back out of deals "Betty Backout." We don't have to just fold our cards and sing an ode to Kenny Rogers: "You got know when to hold em....know when to fold em...know when to walk away....know… Continue reading How to CALM Down Betty-Backout
Burnout is a serious epidemic. It will affect most people at some point in their life. As someone who burnt out herself, I'm passionate about educating people on how to avoid it, or at least lesson it's impact. In my new book Beyond the Board: How to Achieve Your Vision Board Goals in a Fulfilling… Continue reading Sustainability Formula – Excerpt from Beyond the Board!
I offer free one-hour complimentary sessions before people enroll in my one-on-one coaching. About six months ago I was talking with a young mortgage officer. He was hungry, working hard, and had a desire to succeed. He was working extreme hours and his girlfriend made him take a few hours a week off of work… Continue reading New Year’s Obsession
A positive mental attitude will get you through everything, right? Who is excited about their 2020 goals?! I know I sure am! Ready to level up, serve more, and achieve things I've never had on my radar before. I hope you are too. I'm sure that you've already done some strategy and goal-setting or you… Continue reading Pollyanna Has A Problem
I had gone to a panel discussion on failure last month at part of the Twin Cities Start Up Week. The panelists shared their thoughts on how to navigate failure and the mindset to have around it. What usually showed up as failure ended up being an opportunity to something better down the road. As… Continue reading Quitting Is Not An Option – Failure Is
We have mice. My husband found some mice in an outside storage shed a few weeks ago. And he set up traps and got most of them over the course of one gruesome month. The problem was that they had gotten at a ton of our things and we had to go through the cardboard… Continue reading Fighting the Trap of Unfulfilling Success
Did anyone else do a countdown this year?!?! Just me?!?! No, I'm not crazy - I realize January 2020 is still four solid months out. But I'm not waiting 4 months to hit some goals and finish 2019 strong. And neither should any other parents out there. The day after Labor Day is the first… Continue reading Happy New Year Moms!
If you’re like anyone else in business, you face some competition. If you aren’t ready for it you might want to consider getting out of the ring. That being said, it’s important to stop focusing on what competition is doing and run your race. Play more offense instead of defense. This is kinda funny, but… Continue reading Defense Wins Championships, But Offense Wins Business
My greatest fear is being alone. Coming up a close second (after the welfare of my family, of course) is giving up control of my life. I've been in complete control over my career, work hours, income, and destiny for 20 years! The last time I had been an employee was when I interned at… Continue reading You Can Be Independent, But Not Alone
As a woman in business for almost 20 years, and all of those being self-employed, I feel like I give a different perspective to my coaching clients. All I've ever really known is hustling and hunting for my paycheck, while learning how to make that more effective and flexible through the years. I haven't really… Continue reading What Women Want at Work
