It’s easy to get tempted to jump at a “Yes” because you're honored to be recognized and included. However, I want you to take a few moments to ask yourself a couple of questions:
Are you struggling to find your ideal client? You might know who you want to serve, but you're not sure how to narrow them down.

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...
Change is inevitable.
We are constantly evolving. Our skin sloughs off, our cells are regenerating; which in turn so are our organs. We take in thousands of stimulus every day. Impressions that affect how we think and create. Interactions that have the power to mold our thoughts differently and alter our internal chemistry.
It makes sense then since our business is a reflection of ourselves that it would evolve as well. In that, you must refresh your content.
I invite you to look at your services, sales pages, landing pages, opt-in sequences, workshop materials, etc. with fresh eyes.
Of course, scientific and age-old data will remain consistent. However, even if you’ve sourced references, there may be newer abstracts that you can draw from for a more fresh and relevant citing...
The idea of building something where there was nothing before. Even as a little girl, I was fascinated by the process of how homes were built in my neighborhood. I would take note of every detail, right down to how the moldings on the windows and doors were perfectly aligned. That kind of precision had me enthralled!
This fascination with construction continued into adulthood, but with a slightly different focus. I am continually in awe of watching new businesses start from nothing but a scribble on a blank sheet of paper, eventually manifesting into a vibrant entity with its own life and personality.
To deconstruct something is to take it apart, piece by piece. This could result in demolition, but not necessarily. It's more like the exact reverse of piecing something together. Sometimes writing is deconstructed; when a political speech is analyzed by the news,...
