As an entrepreneur, we are faced with loads of projects on our docket. Whenever we can systematize a process, it simplifies the flow and increases productivity. Here are the six phases of project management that will help you establish a clear vision and accomplish your lofty goals.
Before you begin any new project, it’s always a good idea to do your homework. This can apply to any project from a blog post to an online course.
Validating your idea before you invest your time, money, and energy is crucial.
For example, if you are writing a blog post, it is a good idea to utilize Google’s Keyword Planner.
You can research which names and phrases are most requested. This helps you be strategic with your blog title, as well as keywords within your post for better online search rankings.
For the online course validation, for example, make calls or conduct a poll to your ideal...

There’s a plethora of information that is available to us at any given moment. At times, it can feel fun and powerful; other times, it can feel completely overwhelming. I asked myself, “How much content can you consume?” And it sparked the idea for this post.
I love learning. It is one of my favorite past times. I admit that I can get caught up and press the “buy now” button for the next new course, subscribe to a trending podcast, opt-in to get that oh so enticing pdf, and more! Can you relate?
If I calculated the hours of content that I’ve purchased (on a range of subjects), it truly could accumulate to a bachelor’s degree!
That‘s not even including free sources like YouTube, MarieTV, Gaia, TedTalks, podcasts, Facebook lives, webinars, summits, etc. Then, of course, there‘s the slew of daily emails from businesses that I admire, audiobooks, and ebooks…you get...
Nicoletta Mura is a Career Confidence Coach with an extensive background in leadership and career development. Her mission is to close the confidence gap to help passion-driven women to claim a seat at the table and lead the way.
Nico overcame her confidence challenge and became a manager for a Fortune 500 company and she now helps other women to achieve their career goals, advocating for themselves with ease and authenticity.
When she moved to the UK, with English not being her first language, Nicoletta noticed she was retreating into her shell due to lack of confidence. She realized in order to advance in her career and also have authentic relationships she had to step out of her comfort zone and allow people to truly get to know the real her.
Practicing English, which was uncomfortable at the time, is what helped her with...
After reading the title, did you think I was going to write about a deep dive discussion? I literally mean a deep dive — a scuba dive that is!
I became increasingly enamored of it when I started snorkeling and then progressed onto scuba diving.
Today, I was reflecting on one of my experiences. My bestie and I took an adventure to the Bahamas intending to get our Specialty Diver Shark Awareness Certification. Even the idea of it held a certain thrill and excitement.
Then the day came when we had completed the academic portion of the course and it was time for the open water section. Two dives were required — a free swim with sharks and a shark feeding dive. So, we hopped on the boat with fins in hand and giddy with anticipation.
After our proper “buddy check,” we descended into the...
On the podcast, I’ve interviewed over 30 female entrepreneurs from around the world.
Each with their own story of how they began, their triumphs and tribulations.
It’s been awesome!
Lifting up women on the solopreneur path is one of my all-time favorite things. Not only does it provide connection it inspires others. I’ve received loads of emails from people whether they were just in the concept stage or a seasoned veteran telling me that being able to plug into real talk about women in business was just what they needed.
I love that!
Today’s episode is a little different.
Back in November, I conducted some market research and spoke with dozens of women at various stages in their business. I started to see a common theme.
Here’s what I learned:
*They all desired business mentorship, they saw the value in having a business coach guide them and show...

So you have a great product.
That’s not enough.
The fact is, the marketplace is crowded, the social feeds are noisy, and most commercials — annoying. As a solopreneur, how do you stand-out, get noticed, and build your tribe?
Yep! That’s it! The single most important way to build and engage your audience is through communication. And not just any blah, blah, blah. It has to be great. Crafting a 2-way conversation is a must. And…it has to be compelling enough for them to stick around until the end.
One of the most effective ways to share your message is through storytelling. Everyone loves a super story. It takes us on a journey. If done well, we feel like we are right there with the author; laughing, crying, outraged. It allows us to escape our world, and turn down the volume of life, if even for just a moment or two.
Once you pull in your reader,...
