Let’s Get To Work Moms!

Okay,  moms we are WELL into September and all children across the country are back in school (except Chicago). Even homeschooling moms have started up at the point.

So now it’s time to focus on your business. We have 60 more days until Thanksgiving. After that days get shorter and busier! Whatever you are going to accomplish has to happen in the next 60 days. Don’t tell yourself you have until 2013. You don’t. You know how this goes. So let’s get to work moms.

1. Pat yourself on the back for the accomplishments thus far.

2. Re-evaluate your goals

3. Determine the ONE thing in particular that you want to focus on.

4. Who & what will you need to help you accomplish it?

5. Start moving in that direction.

6. Stay off of Facebook, Pintrest & any other time-sucking social media platform (unless you successfully use it for business)

7. Keep your peripheral view on what you want for next year.

In December when everything has slowed down then we’ll look at setting goals for next year!

Get back to work mom!

All Things Are Possible

To many people have dreams but give up to easily when things get tough. We have to remember that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

You use a cell phone to call someone on the other side of the country and the signal shoots to a satellite out of space and down to their phone in 2 SECONDS! ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

You get in a piece of tin foil with 150 other people and mankind defies gravity by flying through the air at 300mph! ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

You program in your little gizmo an address in a different city and your gizmo tells you how to get there and the exact  time you will arrive even when you decide to go a different route! ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

When you look at man’s inventions who can doubt that we have been created by an AWESOME CREATOR who has given us TREMENDOUS creative abilities! All we have to do is have faith, believe and act on our faith. That means you can’t give up when you’ve think that you’ve “worked sooo hard.”

WORK HARDER!

WHATEVER YOU WANT IS POSSIBLE!

Here’s a video that reminded me of the GRAND possibilities of mankind…and brought tears to my eyes.

So what are you able to accomplish…if only you believed that all things are possible? Leave your thought.

Don’t Start A Blog!

Don't Start a Blog!

I know many will tell you to go online and start a blog. I tell my clients “don’t start a blog!”, not without a plan!

Today my blog is a perfect example of why you should not start one. My last post was in MARCH!!  I didn’t even blog on Mother’s Day and I’m the freckin’ business coach for MOMS! I put the “mom” in entrepreneur!

What am I doing?!

I’m working…hard! I am refocusing my business on doing television interviews and more speaking.  This means a shift in my marketing, creating a new website, more research and honing many new skills; all while homeschooling, chauffeuring, traveling and coaching my current clients (I’ve slowed down my intake of new clients CONSIDERABLY!). This is a major challenge because my wonderful assistant just graduated, has a new job, is in love and is talking marriage!

If you are just starting a business (and in a sense that’s what I’m doing AGAIN) you shouldn’t start a blog unless you have some order and direction about your business. You must have a plan for your blog AND social media or else it will fall by the wayside and/or you’ll end up communicating banal facts about your everyday life. As much as I believe that my readers are interested in me, do you really want to read about how I’ve just spent 3 weeks pulling carpet, sanding and varnishing the 3 bedrooms? Do you want to read about my 4hrs spent on the phone tracking down business? Or my drive to Virgina to speak to a group?

Now that I type those words I can see that those subjects would make encouraging blog posts….but when I’m in the midst of such activities and still have 43 OTHER things to do, it doesn’t feeeel interesting enough to blog about.

Which brings me back to my point; DON’T START A BLOG unless you know what you want to offer your potential readers and you have a plan to take them there consistently for several months.

Granted, I have been blogging for 3 years now (here’s my first blog post from 1/25/2009).  I am very well-established on the internet with hundreds of backlinks and hundreds of readers everyday. So if I let it fall by the way-side for a couple of months it’s not  as detrimental as someone who has only been online for 6months. There’s still a price that I have to pay though.

So I say to you; DON’T START A BLOG, without a long-term plan, some order in your business (even if it’s just on paper) and some direction on where you want to take your readers.

 

If you’ve already have fallen by the wayside with your blog or you are planning to get one started I would love to help you. Click here to see how I can help you create your blog with coaching!
