How to pick your word for 2018

One of the rituals I do every January is to pick a word for the year. I love this strategy because it helps me to stay focused and move forward.

Let’s be honest running a business is a roller coaster and with distractions being everywhere we need to become laser focused on the pursuit of our dreams.
This means saying no to more things than we say yes, but how to differentiate a real opportunity from a distraction?

That’s where your word comes into play. If the so called opportunity (aka course, online program, collaboration, idea, etc.) is aligned with your word (aka your focus) then you know it’s an opportunity worth to consider. If, on the other hand, the so called opportunity isn’t aligned, then you know it’s a distraction and you better say no.

3 Pillars of Success

Despite what it looks like from the outside, success doesn’t happen by accident or to a few lucky ones. It’s designed.

The content you need to put out there

The content you need to put out there

Today is one of those days when inspiration shows up and I’ve spent the whole morning writing. I wrote 4 posts in a row then I realized I’ve been hoarding content. I know it sounds terrible, but it’s the truth. In the last 3 years I’ve written so many posts and ideas that I’ve never published.

And I apologize for that because those are articles will help you move your business forward. Keeping them on my computer isn’t helping anyone.

You may be thinking, so why haven’t you published them? (more…)

Your niche can make or break your business

Is your niche really that important?

Yes!

Your niche is so important that it’s the foundation of your business success. However, every day I talk with women entrepreneurs who resist niching down their business.

I get it, narrowing your niche is scary

  • You’re afraid to leave people out and lose business
  • What if you get bored talking about the same topic over and over?
  • Do people would be really interested in your small niche?
  • What if you pick the wrong niche?
  • You think your business is different and picking a niche won’t work for you.

Almost every entrepreneur has these fears. After all we want to help as many clients as we can. The trick is that by narrowing your niche you’ll help more people because you’ll have a clear focus and you’ll be known for one thing – this is the secret of all successful women you admire. Think Marie Forleo, Denise Duffield-Thomas, Gabrielle Bernstein, and others.

OK, now that we’re on the same page, here is the formula to find your profitable niche: (more…)

Growth doesn’t always look like success

Do you have a word for this year?

My word for 2017 is growth. When I set it as my intention for this year, I was thinking financial growth and I set big money goals with it. Little I knew God had different plans.

Eleven months later I’m reflecting on my goals and what I’ve achieved so far. At first I was disappointed that I haven’t reached my financial goals (yet) then I looked back and I’m amazed by all the things I’ve done during this year (even with creative burnout) (more…)
