Are You Doing Business in the “Pocket”?

Are You Building Your Business in the "Pocket"?Do You Stand Strong?

I’m a football mom…well, a past high school provincial champion mom three times!  I loved being on the sidelines yelling “honey”!!  🙂

I loved watching the synergy between the quarterback and the receivers, the O-line creating and maintaining the pocket for the QB to throw from.

My boys were safeties, kickers, and the youngest, a noseguard working both ways, defense and offence. It was a blast.  We miss the action a lot.

Now we have to content ourselves with being armchair coaches for the CFL and NFL being from both sides of the border.

But…what does that have to do with business?

Three Things That Inspire Change

three things for changeChange Creates Growth

Many times we tend to shrink back from change because it seems that we cannot maintain control.  To stay within the security of what we know and are familiar with seems safer.  This post discusses three things that can inspire change.

However, in any area of our lives, whether it’s with health, relationships, money or learning new skills, if we are to grow…it means change.

Napoleon Hill, in his classic book, Think and Grow Rich, writes…”Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”  Read More→

Your Voice is Important, Your Message is Heard

This Was a Big Surprise

When we wonder if our voice is important, if in fact we are being heard…here is a story.

Not four weeks ago, I was talking with two people about the seeming changes needed for this blog to update it for today’s audience.  It seemed to me that the style and message was becoming insignificant if not irrelevant to my market.

However, this  week changed everything!

Going Big without Limiting Possibilities

Going BigThose BHAGs…What?

I just sat in a Mastermind Class which is always an awesome privilege!  One of the lessons learned in this group and also working in teams to build business, is the importance of managing those things that sideswipe you and perhaps have you playing “small” rather than reaching for that “BHAG” ( Big Hairy Audacious Goal) as Russell Brunson would say.

Would You Hire Yourself?

Do You Show Up Daily?

First of all, most entrepreneurs don’t think of themselves of employees. Heck, a lot are in this game of building their own business just to exit the whole framework of having a “boss”, being an “employee”!

In the home business industry there is no time-clock…but…the go-getter doesn’t need a punch card or payroll time ticket…they’re driven to achieve.

But there’s a hitch…when juggling the j.o.b. and relationships and then your home business…a niggling awareness of the challenge to show up daily.  Then the “little voices” on your shoulder distracting you, telling you to put it off for another time.

Procrastination…Happens to the Best

Do you get to the end of yet another day with the realization that once again your intentions to take action are still intentions…?

You are not alone.

At the same time…knowing that there’s a world of folks that share that same frustration doesn’t serve you to give yourself permission to continue putting things off.  This is your life, this is your business.  Your hopes, goals are still there waiting to be reached.  You have family and friends, watching for your results.

That can open up a whole other conversation.

Let’s link arms here.   Your success is within reach.  It may take longer that you anticipated but…don’t let go of them.

So what is the answer to procrastination?

Even if  You Only Have Minutes at a Time

Here’s a short video speaking to the power of using even 15 segments of time to move your business forward.  It’s only just over 2 minutes.



Getting a Handle on those Minutes that Slip Away

Here’s a list of action steps that will help you take your control back of your time.

  1. Treat your business like a second job. Approach it with the same punctuality that you attend your job.
  2. Negotiate with your family and significant others…or yourself, prescribed hours that you are working on your business.
  3. Keep those hours, set Social Media off, shut the door and focus on the most important activities for that day.
  4. Approach your business with a plan.  Identify the activities that will make you money
  5. Make a list of daily actions, we call it Daily Method of Operations, action you will take every day. Post it at your work space as a guide
  6. Every night, list the End of Day results, review your DMO (Daily Method of Operation) for the next day as you approach your sleep.

This is an abbreviated guideline to becoming regular in income producing activities for your business.  I would add that you know what your business needs.  If you are lost in this…reach out to me and let’s talk.   Find a mentor in your circle, MLM or  online community to be accountable.

Celebrate every and any success with your support system. Release fun, good energy and accountability with those who are closest to you.

This week, take this list of action steps and rob procrastination of it’s power to cause you to stumble in pursuit of your goals.

Stuck?…It Happens To The Best of Us

Stuck?...It Happens To the Best of Us

Doesn’t Feel Great But…

There is hope.  Stuff comes at us that takes the wind out of our sails.  Pressure piles up making it feel like we are stuck in a snowbank just like the car.

It can be totally frustrating.  Watching others make steady progress. Feeling personal overwhelm, and sometimes, fear. Heck, lots of feelings surface that surprise you!

I’ve Been There and Done That

Choose To Be In Control

We choose our response.  It’s a decision.

Yes…it starts in our head, then finds it’s way into our “heart”. Then when we “own” those thoughts/belief in ourselves then we get into action…or not!

Let stress be a motivator for you, that magic place between too little stimulus and too much.  Control pressure sneaking up on you as it will get you back in the snowbank!

As entrepreneurs, we can only allow that stuck feeling to be a very short season. Otherwise momentum is lost, creativity  fizzles, relationships dry up.

Self doubt sabotages.  Recognize when that is creeping up and stay in control.  Here are 5 quick tips to help you keep moving forward.

Believing in you to make it happen in your business.
