Hard Day

Let's face it. Life is not always rainbows and butterflies. Some days just seem to feel really hard. And if you are an entrepreneur who is trying to juggle growing your business and wearing all the hats in your personal life (partner, parent, chef, bff, amazing friend etc.) you KNOW that when 💩hits the fan in one area of your life, everything seems to get rocked by the ripple effect. This post is for you to save and re-read on the hard days, when nothing seems to be working and you need a lighthouse to lead you out of the mist.

Listening to your Intuition

The first time I stopped listening to the "experts" and started listening to my intuition was on a consultation with a potential client.  Up until that point in my coaching business I was fumbling around trying to help guide my podcast listeners, readers and community along the path towards working with me one on one. But to me it felt more like I was climbing into a sewage pipe consult after consult forcing myself to wade through the muck and dodge the rats as though that were the only path available to my goal. On that particular call, it occurred to me, I really liked this woman, not just as a potential client...but as a human.

Why a 7-Figure Business Won't make you Happy

When you are a multiple six figure business owner, it's easy to set your sights on the million dollar mark as the gold standard for a truly successful business.  You imagine what it will be like for you, your growing team and your family. But the truth is, if you aren't carefully considering the way in which scale to 7 figures, you may find yourself at that milestone mark, burnt out with no one to share it with. I am not a Coach who likes to focus on doom and gloom (because your brain spends enough time doing that already, am I right?) but the reality is, entrepreneurs aren't immune from relationship breakdown.  In fact, they may be more prone to it. Take 30 seconds to answer the following questions. Be brutally honest with yourself:

Self-Investment Sunday

As a former workaholic and professional dancer-with-burn-out, one of the pillars of my work with clients is helping them build a more sustainable schedule. If you are an entrepreneur, you need time to work, but probably not as much as you currently spend. For the past month, I have been experimenting with a 25 hour work week and I am loving the effects on my business and my life. It feels more in alignment to only spend time on what is essential and beneficial for my clients and use the other hours of the day enjoying the life I have worked so hard to build. You might not be ready to cut down your hours at the desk just yet, but if you are overworking this one is for you. I want to offer you the same first step I took to reprioritize my entire life, personally and professionally. It called Self-Investment Sunday (but any day that works for you, will work for this) One day each week, our family goes almost completely screen free and usually the day before we get whatever we need to make that time restful and fun.

The 25 Hour Experiment

As we come to the end of my second 25 hour work week, I want to give you an honest update. Between the launch of our new Love + Success Formula program and the three day summit we just had (btw, if you missed it get the replays and watch them before they disappear next week) limiting my schedule to just 25 hours was a big challenge. I did it, but just barely. There were times I had to lock my computer in another room to stop myself from finishing "one more thing". I let my phone run out of batteries twice and didn't recharge it until the next day just so I couldn't hop on my email or check the calendar.

How to Work Less Without Sacrificing Success

On Monday I had a moment that stopped me in my tracks. I was hanging out with my kids and realized that in 4 months I will be sending them both to school. We have been under lockdown full time since February 2020 and while it's been a rollercoaster, the bond of our little family is strong and beautiful. So the realization that soon they would be off on their next adventure gave me pause. Even though I consider myself to have a much more harmonious schedule than the average entrepreneur, I still work more than I want to on things in my business that I am not entirely sure are essential. Don't get me wrong, I have developed some serious entrepreneurial superpowers (and I will teach you all of them inside the Love + Success Group Coaching Program) For instance I know how to:

How to Unplug for 24 Hours

Yesterday, Steve shared some wisdom we have learned from one of our Love + Success Summit speakers Tiffany Shlain (if you aren't registered for the event, you can do so here; it's FREE). In our home, we are more plugged in now than ever before. My kids do everything virtually from kindergarten to piano and even yoga. But after reading Tiffany's book 24/6, I knew I wanted to have a no-screen day every week, but wasn't sure if I could pull it off. The thought of not being available on the weekends to tie up loose ends, not finding out until Monday that our website was down or that a client was having trouble accessing something, sounded more stressful than being able to just check my phone and email over the weekend. I was torn, but I decided to give it a try and I am so glad we did because our screen free day is beautiful.

How to Apologize Authentically to Your Partner

Saying sorry is hard, but it’s necessary for a strong relationship. If you struggle with apologizing in a way that is true to yourself here’s something to try: state your intentions behind your actions as well as your feelings for the effect that those actions had on your partner. For instance, “I’m sorry you feel like I’ve been avoiding you. I didn’t intend for that to happen, I was just very focused on my work. What can I do to help you?” This way you hear them entirely without defending. You acknowledge that you have room to grow, but also that your heart is in the right place. You are in this relationship because you love them, and emphasizing that always helps during a disagreement or when your partner says that something you did or said hurt them.
