HOW TO AVOID FRUSTRATION

So, you’ve ended the week more tired, but not a dollar richer? This is a common problem. You put on a suit, you shuffled some emails, you had a coffee meeting, you worked a job, etc, but you haven’t moved an inch further towards growing your business or making money. You allowed your day to be ruled by tasks and people who aren’t in your money lane, who are on your purpose train and you may not be aware and certainly not focused on your #1’s.

KEEP YOUR BRAND ON FIRE!

KEEP YOUR BRAND ON FIRE! Let’s be honest, who wants to chase a mediocre dream? Not me! Your dream should fill you with excitement and be driven by your passion, which means your approach needs to include all of those aspects. There is no such thing as a lazy, successful entrepreneur. Yikes, that sounds so ridiculous. Being outworked is a very easy way to lose current and potential clients. So ask yourself: “Am I doing just enough?” “Do you go the extra mile for your clients

TOUGH QUESTIONS EVERY BOSS SHOULD ASK!

TOUGH QUESTIONS EVERY BOSS SHOULD ASK! I hope your week is off to super success and inspiration. When I first started this journey, I didn’t know what was ahead; I only knew what I needed.

New York City leads the rest of the country in both the number (143) of and dollar amount ($42,281,500) of SBA-backed loans granted to women in the last year, a critical element of starting any business.

WHAT TERRIFIES YOU IN BUSINESS?

WHAT TERRIFIES YOU IN BUSINESS? Doing videos? Hosting webinars? Speaking from the stage? Well, what if I told you that the very thing you’re most afraid of is exactly the thing you should be doing? (Stay with me, here!) I’m a big believer that your business is the best vehicle for personal growth and the only way to grow is to stretch outside of your comfort zone and do things that you are scared to do. Looking back on my own experiences, I’ve realized that the things that sc

YOUR GOALS & DREAMS

YOUR GOALS & DREAMS Goal setting and visualization are so important when it comes to manifesting what you want, but so often we forget to do it! It can be so easy to get caught up in day to day tasks and dilemmas that we forget all about our goals and end up focusing on what’s going wrong or worrying about things that could go wrong. The problem when we focus our attention on these kinds of things is that it can lead us off track… we lose sight of our goals and dreams. So, in

Are You Giving Your Power Away?

Are You Giving Your Power Away? Yesterday morning, I woke up to this: 0800– A call from someone I hadn’t heard from in a while…asking to borrow money. 0830- A call to help someone write a 5,000 word book…for free. 0852– A call asking if I could volunteer at an organization. 0915– A call to visit a few people who are leaving town soon. 0950– An “urgent” email asking me to help someone with a project that they’re working on. 1005– 20 emails asking me for my HARDCORE advice. 102

The 6 Business Assets that are More Important than Your Business Plan

The 6 Business Assets that are More Important than Your Business Plan One of the most popular questions I get asked whenever I talk about online business building is always about business plans. For one reason or another, the concept of a business plan, what it is, why it’s necessary and how to create your own, always seems to be a primary concern to beginner business owners and/or those who are curious about online business and thinking about starting their own. When you are

How to Make a Good First Impression with Your Brand

How to Make a Good First Impression with Your Brand The first impression is usually the last impression. The first time someone is exposed to your brand is important because it is right then and there that their opinion of your brand is formed.  You don’t often have another chance to win someone over, and that is why you should put a little thought into how your brand is perceived at first sight. It’s even better when you make sure that the first experience a new customer or

OPERATION FIRST IMPRESSION

The first impression is usually the last impression. The first time someone is exposed to your brand is important because it is right then and there that their opinion of your brand is formed. You don’t often have another chance to win someone over, and that is why you should put a little thought into how your brand is perceived at first sight. It’s even better when you make sure that the first experience a new customer or viewer has with your brand is memorable. There are a

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

I wanted it bad enough to break up with some friends (and even a few family members) who weighed me down with their disbelief and silent insecurities of being “left behind.” I wanted it bad enough that I believed in myself by shining my own light as bright as I could on even the darkest days. I wanted it bad enough to speak it before it ever existed. I wanted it so bad that failure was not an option. I wanted it bad enough that people conspired on my behalf to see that it was

Creating Your Elevator Speech

Sometimes after you’ve gotten clear on what it is you want to do, you forget that one day you may just have to explain it to someone.  Let’s face it, if you want to be an entrepreneur and be profitable you must know how to present your value.  You want to be able to explain who you are, what you do, and why it’s valuable in a way that is clear and confident. There are many people that are good at what they do, but not so much at explaining it in a way that makes others want t

SELF-MADE VS. GOD MADE

I am not self-made. God was present the whole time. Because of God’s favor, I’ve created success, magnetized opportunities, and smashed assumptions every step of the way . . . and I LOVE sharing my tools and techniques with audiences all over the world. If your business is stagnating — or hasn’t even begun…If you’re locked in a repetitive cycle of toxic relationships…If you want to be a role model for your kids — and bring out their gifts, by shining a light on your own…you’

BRANDING BOSS

Business and branding can be overwhelming and that can leave you paralyzed with fear. Believe me, I fight through fear everyday. One way I was able to decrease overwhelm and fear when it came to business and branding was to make it as fun as possible. I mean it. Basing my approach in fun has worked wonders for me and that has definitely translated to the Dream & Build Success audience. One fun exercise that I like to do that helps me to get really clear on the essence of my b

Top 5 Characteristics of Successful Business Owners!

Define Success in Your Own Terms It is SO easy to let others – well intentioned others – define success for you.  Think about it.  Your parents, your spouse/partner, your children, and the people who work for you, your friends – they all try to define success for you. Women are sensitive to social pressures, and it is so easy to fall into the trap of embracing the existing definitions of success.  One of the last frontiers for women is to recognize that their personal definit

5 TRICKS TO ORGANIZE YOUR DIGITAL DOCUMENTS

This week I’m taking you behind the scenes and I’m going to show you inside of the success hub. But first, I want to be completely open and honest about something… I often feel like my business is a BIG MESS! There’s so much going on, so much to do, it leaves me feeling like a headless chicken. In the past this messiness has often got me down, because sometimes I feel like I should have it all figured out, it shouldn’t be as stressful and as chaotic as it is. But then I reali

SPRING CLEAN BUSINESS TIPS!

I love everything about Spring. I love the tulips that begin to pop up, checking out all of the exciting new fashions, and finally being able to plan for family vacation. But above it all, I LOVE Spring cleaning! Each year I pick a weekend and completely clean out my home. I go through my closet, clean out the kitchen, and I thoroughly organize my office. It is an exhausting, but exhilarating experience. My Spring cleaning process is two-fold: •Part 1: Properly Purge – I fill

BUSINESS BUCKET LIST

As we approach the end of the first quarter, it’s more important than ever that you be intentional and goal-oriented in your business. Springtime is exciting and fun, but I think one of the best things about the spring is that it’s a wonderful time to meet business goals and make big profits. Major retailers make sure to take advantage of the season with new items, big promotions and aggressive advertising. As entrepreneurs, it’s important we also make big moves so we start t
