It’s easy to think that you can DIY everything, because heck, you’ve done pretty well figuring things out up until this point.
However, things have shifted and you may have asked yourself, “When do solopreneurs need coaches?”
Perhaps you’re home more hours than before, maybe you have less time because of other distractions in the house that weren’t there, or it could be that work is the farthest thing from your mind with all that’s on the news!
Just because you’re a badass entrepreneur, don’t think you would never need a coach of your own. Seems like a funny thing to think about but even the best coaches could use some help streamlining their businesses or having an objective third party to talk to about personal or family matters. Heck, even psychiatrists are required to speak to other psychiatrists regularly!
Business coaches can assist anyone with their businesses and often will find things to fix or change simply because they...
Given the current circumstances, most of us are trying to come up with ideas that will serve our tribe.
You might be looking at how to start or grow your business, or maybe even just find a new income stream.
An excellent way to do that is through online programs.
Building digital resources (membership sites, courses, etc.) is my jam.
Today, I want to share with you ways to keep things simple!
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You begin to write a blog post, and before you know it, your “quick update” has turned into a rambling, 3,000-word novelette that covers everything from where to find a graphic designer to how to design a business card.
Now, a 3,000-word blog post can be great for traffic, but only if you’ve kept it tightly focused. But what happens all too often (in blog posts and in course development) is that every point covered brings up a new point to be addressed.
Logo design leads to business card...
Here in the Northern Hemisphere Spring has Sprung! And with the current global circumstances, it feels like there’s never been a better time to clean.
In the process of evaluating and re-evaluating everything that takes up space from clothing to paperwork, I found myself mentally repeating, “Is it necessary?”
Here are a couple of clarifying questions to get your answer fast:
The standard rule of thumb is to discard, sell, or donate anything that you haven’t used in the last six months (of course, if it’s something seasonal this wouldn’t apply). It makes perfect sense. Even though the time can truly fly by, if the item in question was essential you would have utilized it within a half a year.
Donating, repurposing, re-gifting, or tossing are your options. To get a little cash the modern way, people are loving the letgo app found here.
My boyfriend and I love to ride the Harley along the Finger Lakes. We also both enjoy seeing how things are made. To that end, we decided to head over to York, PA to the Harley-Davidson Steel Toe Tour to get a “behind the scenes” view of the assembly line.
From the moment we arrived, I knew this business was going to be an example of continuous improvement implementation. I was immediately impressed by the organization and cleanliness of the plant. Next, was the level of service and happiness of the staff - One woman (a tour guide) was a retired school teacher and had been working at the plant for 17 years.
Fred, our personal guide, had retired from the tool and die industry and was in his 15th year giving tours. (He was a pretty spry 82 years old, I might add!) They both exclaimed that their jobs didn’t feel like “work” and they truly still had a passion for the...

I grew up loving business – I loved the independence; I loved the endless possibilities; I loved making people happy with creative products and services. Not much has changed through all these years!
I’m going to share with you why 10 times was a charm for me and the power in the perseverance of business.
It all started when I was 10 years old and began a babysitting business. That sounds young, even to me, but I already had 3 years of experience. My sister was born when I was 7 years old. She was like my baby – always on my hip. I offered childcare services until I was 18 and was known as the “town nanny.”
Later, I studied music at the Chautauqua Institute and offered haircuts to the folks in my dorm, as well as chauffeur services to and from the local airport.
Therefore, the journey continued…
At age 19, my bestie...

Ugh! The dreaded feeling of being an entrepreneur when it seems like you’re spinning your wheels, pumping out great content, and no one is listening. What are your choices? You could stop writing your blog and posting on social media. You could keep repeating your routine. Or make some changes.
This may seem like the easiest and best answer at first. I mean, if no one is listening or commenting on your hard work, why bother…right? But, let’s think about this. If you choose to hang up the towel, you are eliminating any possibility of getting recognized, seen, and/or heard. You are really saying to the world: “I don’t exist.” I don’t think that’s what you want is it?
I believe there is great power in dedication.
