Are you experiencing less than stellar results in your personal development and business growth?

I help highly-motivated entrepreneurs and business owners develop and commit to a success mindset which powerfully influences the decisions and commitments they make so they experience exponential growth in their business.
Do you consider yourself a “big thinker”? How does your big thinking influence your day to day activities? For entrepreneurs, big thinking is connected to a growth mindset. But what is a “growth mindset” and what does that really mean for the entrepreneur or business owner?
Carol Dweck, a professor at Standford University, has been studying mindset and its impact, first on children and in sports, has now extended her studies to its effect on companies. As a company of one or more, this should be of interest to you as it can influence whether you’re a big thinker or one who always wants to play it safe.Continue reading →
There are many strategies to grow the popularity of your blog. One of the most significant things you can do to realize this goal is to start building relationships with other bloggers. It doesn’t matter what your niche is or type of blogger you are, you are part of the larger community of bloggers, often referred to as the blogosphere.
Do not hesitate to build relationships with other bloggers
New bloggers often get intimidated by the thought of building relationships with other bloggers who are much more established in blogging than they are. Do not hesitate to build relationships. Keep in mind that everyone was a beginner blogger at one point or another. As long as you can demonstrate that your content is of value, and that you’re working at communicating this value through your posts, social media, inbound and outbound links, among others, you should have no problem starting mutually beneficial relationships.Continue reading →
Many coaches position themselves as both a coach and mentor, as I do. Recently I was asked about the differences between a mentor and a coach. Since this is a question others may have, I felt a blog post explaining about how I understand the differences would be appropriate. The exact definition appears to be elusive, so you may also find other thoughts on the topic.
Definition of Mentoring
Mentoring is a process through which an individual offers professional expertise as well as support to a less experienced colleague. A mentor serves as a teacher, counselor, and advocate to a protégée. Mentoring results in a mutually beneficial professional relationship over time.
Wikipedia’s definition of mentoring is, “…a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé).”Continue reading →
If you were to ask twenty entrepreneurs and small business owners, Who is your ideal client? the majority of persons would likely say, Everyone. Unless someone has been exposed to the concept of developing a clear vision of your ideal client, they usually feel they can serve everyone.
While working in corporate America, my entrepreneurial spirit led me to become a Skin Care and Beauty Consultant, and I loved it! I loved the product; I loved working with women on a personal level; and I enjoyed the thrill of seeing the difference that great skin care made to a woman’s skin. However, we were taught that “every woman with skin” was our customer. I believed every woman was my ideal client.
It was not until I came online and enrolled in a training course, I discovered that while I could sell to most women, my ideal client was a 40-65 year old professional woman with specific demographics and psychographics. Continue reading →
Is it possible that excellent customer service is important in one industry but optional in another? My answer to that is a resounding, No!
Excellent customer service is essential to every business, online or offline, regardless of the market or niche. In fact, I would go further to say, without hesitation, that excellent customer service is critical to businesses if you want to succeed in today’s economy. It’s the lifeblood of your business and you must be prepared to go the extra mile. But the question may be, ‘How can you deliver excellent customer service through your website?’
Excellent customer service and a good customer experience begin right at the first point of contact. It happens when your prospect meets you, when they visit your website or your social media page, or any other online properties you have. That means everything from navigation to your personal and/or company brand play a role in their experience.Continue reading →
Have you ever had the experience where you were busy from morning until late evening but at the end of the day, you had very little to show for the hours you spent ‘working’? If you work from your home office and you tell your family how tired you are because you were working all day, could you show what you did? If you were your boss, would she feel you were productive and deserving of payment, or were you just busy?
The Myth of Multi-Tasking
For years the ability to multi-task was like a badge that people wore proudly. Employees were considered excellent workers if they could be typing on their computer, answering the phone and taking notes at the same time.
Women who worked from home proudly spoke about their ability to speak with a client on the phone while loading the washing machine or unloading the dryer.Continue reading →
“You don’t need a new day to start over, you
only need a new mindset.” — Hazel Hira Ozbek
What does it take to create a mindset for success as an Entrepreneur? A woman may be told, “Change your mindset and you’ll see it differently.” That may be true. At the same time she may be wondering, “How do I change my mindset?” or, “I don’t even know what mindset is and how it affects me. How can I change it?”
WELCOME TO DAY 1 of “UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF DAILY SUCCESS HABITS.”
I am excited that you made the decision to take this journey with me. I will be your guide and accountability partner.
Does it mean I’ve got a handle on all my daily habits? Not at all! In fact, even though I want to support you, there’s a little bit of selfishness here on my part. This is one of my goals for the first quarter as I know that acquiring good daily success habits will affect my results during the rest of the year. So rather than going off to do this by myself, I thought, why not invite members of my online community so that we can support each other?Continue reading →
