Being Okay Not Being Perfect

Do you feel like you need to be perfect? 

Like you need to at least “SHOW” or “LOOK LIKE” you’re perfectly put together, organized or in some other way?

Do you feel like an imposter sometimes and find it hard to “fake it til you make it” so they say?

Well I hate to burst your bubble, but we’ve all got S**T that’s happened to us, even me.

We have stuff from our childhood that creeps into our subconscious, then we take (or don’t take) action based on those thoughts and beliefs all our life. All while we continue to get roadblocks (sometimes huge ones) just tossed in our way that we have to figure out how to navigate around.

This is called LIFE.

And whether you’re running a business or you have a job or you’re in a transition state right now, life happens. It’s how you deal with it and what you do about it or afterwards or when you’re going through it all how you react or don’t react through it all that makes you the person you are today and in the future.

We need these “lessons” in life frankly. There is NO way we can all be perfect so just realize that sooner than later and show your imperfections to the world so they know you’re human.

That’s just a little thought for the day as I share my own life’s journey with you in a quick, condensed fashion on today’s video – go take a look!

 

 

I could share hours of this frankly but one of those “beliefs” of mine that I inherited was that no one wants to hear about me which is why I always focus so much on giving value, content, tips and resources…

I share a lot more like this at my live events and in my coaching programs but not always via video or email so I wanted to give a glimpse behind the curtain today. I hope this is helpful for some of you!

Let me help you get more clients consistently!

Talking About Money

Talking About Money

When I’m talking about money, a catchy song from the 70s immediately comes to mind.
OMG do you remember that song….For the Love of Money? I had to ask Google… who sings the song with money, money, money, money…. MONEY in it… It was the OJays by the way! I didn’t even know the actual name of the song much less who sung it, fascinating… yet we can all sing along to that part, right!?

Check it out! I found a short clip of it:

I was just sitting here trying to figure out what message you all could use today, what would serve you, what is top of mind with my clients right now and people I’ve met out networking, and they’re all talking about money in one way or another.

Hear me out…

You’ve heard the phrase: “Money is energy”, right? 

I also like:

'Money Follows Speed!' -- More money will come to you when you make faster decisions and take faster action.Click To Tweet (I use this a lot at my events to showcase examples of such which I’m going to get into below.)

I was just thinking that a lot of people I meet are fearful a bit about talking about money, about asking for money, about mentioning their pricing, about charging more.

Let’s face it, as an entrepreneur – you can’t be this way at all. You have to find a way to get beyond your fears and potentially get outside your comfort zone so you can talk about money and actually MAKE more money!!

This week alone, money has come up in many ways:

  • I spoke with two money coaches this week who serve women
  • I spoke with 3 new clients about their money goals
  • I spoke with about 8 clients or members of my Int’l Entrepreneur Network and my Int’l Speaker Network who need to make more money and get clients pretty darn quickly and we gave them tips
  • I’ve had discussions with financial planners myself and a real estate investor about how they want to help others build wealth
  • I’ve heard from a couple clients who had great money-making weeks!

So much of what I do and speak about is about money.

You might not have this much talk about money in your day-to-day lives and it occurred to me that this is why I’m sooooo comfortable talking about my pricing, programs, asking for people to attend my events and buy my stuff… is that I’m always in the conversation.

How can you get more in the conversation around money on a more consistent basis too?

I swear on my life that this will be so helpful for you to do, I promise over time, you too will get so much more comfortable with the money conversation that you won’t feel sleezy or salesy anymore.

You have to sell though. You have to market. You have to make offers. You have to have sales conversations. You can’t hide from this or you aren’t going to be successful.

One of the things I’m SUPER GREAT AT is talking through the sales conversation with someone, one-on-one or in a group and giving you THE WORDS to use in YOUR conversations so you feel empowered, confident and assertive enough to enroll more clients into YOUR AMAZING PROGRAMS!

I want to help you make more sales easily and authentically so you can impact so many more with your gifts…

Let me give you an example from one of my live events:

One time I had a pet psychic attend my event and she was an extreme introvert (maybe some of you can relate). I love getting my hands on introverts, it’s so fun! So part of what we do at my events is CREATE & SELL what I call, Easy Yes Offers. We do this in the room and I help you do this so that everyone literally has something to sell (to the room). Then people stand up and give us their pitches, right on the spot and then I say, “ok who wants that offer?” and people raise their hands, the one who made the offer goes around and either collects the CASH or a credit card, they make the transaction ON THE SPOT mind you, and the person is usually FLOORED with the fact that they just made $300 or sometimes even $1,000!!

Yes so the pet psychic gal, wasn’t really participating, she was just listening and watching, and I was watching her. Then once a bunch of people had shared their offers and money was flying around, I asked her to stand up and share hers. She said a polite “no thanks, I don’t have one”. And I said “oh yes you do… I’ll bet over half the room has pets here and you can work virtually as well as in person right?”. She said “yes”. I said “Okay, stand up and let’s see, what could you offer…”, we brainstormed it out right there on the spot, she was happy with it and spit out the offer (reluctantly) and boy if like 5 or 6 people didn’t raise their hands immediately to buy it!! I bought it too!! From stage I handed her my credit card!!

Did she get outside her comfort zone? YES

Was it worth it? I’d say so, it paid for her ticket and travel to the event!

What was the REAL lesson here?

  • That you have to SHOW UP IN PERSON sometimes, you can’t always just sit behind your computer.
  • You don’t know what you don’t know… well, until someone shoves you outside your comfort zone or teaches you.
  • You have to just ACT. If she had said an absolute no to me and not stood up, she wouldn’t have learned that she had a great offer for ANYONE, ANYWHERE and at any event she ever goes to. She can make money daily after this experience. She wouldn’t have made a dime. She may have regretted it later too, kicking herself wondering why she just couldn’t take the leap in faith and let herself experience this.

What are YOU doing when it comes to experiences like this?

Do you sit and wait it out?

Do you say, well maybe later, not now?

Do you think, oh I can’t do that?

STOP IT! You’re slowing down and even sabotaging your own success. You deserve more and you deserve it now, not someday.

I want to extend an invitation to you that is not just to another event that I host, it’s to a CHANGE OF PERSPECTIVE for you about your business and how you’re running it, marketing it and more.

Isn’t it time that you took faster action so you can see faster results?

Isn’t it time that you stop waiting until you think everything is perfect, the stars align and money magically appears into your bank account and instead just go make it happen?

I’m here and willing to support you, guide you and even push you outside your comfort zone (in a very safe, loving environment by the way) so you can see bigger success in your business so much faster.

This is what you’ll experience at my next Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend… all of this and so much more!! It will honestly be one of the best investments and experiences in your entrepreneurial journey thus far.

 

I hope and pray that you consider registering ASAP and just making it happen, no more excuses. Bring a friend to save on hotel costs, do whatever you have to do and let me get my hands on your business this November!

***Guest blog post from one of my Awesome Live Big Mastermind clients, Lisa Harris of EnduringFitness4u.com – enjoy!

While at a luncheon recently, the conversation at the table I was sitting at turned to maintaining focus and achieving goals. The business coach that was next to me ask me if I had a morning routine.

My answer was a resounding “No!” Over time, I’ve developed a bad habit of staying in bed after the alarm goes off; it’s just so easy to hit the “snooze” button!

But the question posed by the coach at our table aroused my curiosity to the point that I began researching the topic of morning routines when I returned home. What I found is that most of us do not engage in or practice a morning routine.

Set Your Morning, Set Your Day

A routine will help keep you focused on your most important tasks and you’ll be less likely to let distractions knock you off track. Many experts say a morning routine will help you prepare for your day. It’s helps you be proactive and can increase productivity and energy levels. A morning plan also helps you take care of yourself, first.

Many successful people who depend on their A.M. routines are Former President Obama, Steve Jobs, Tony Roberts, just to name a few.

Steps to Create your Morning Routine

1. Prepare the night before. This helps decrease the number of decisions you have to make in the morning, boosting your chance of success.

  • Make a commitment to rise at a specific time.
  • Move your alarm away from your bed because this forces you to get up.
  • Set out your clothes and anything else you’ll need the next day

2. Stay hydrated – drink a large glass of water upon rising.
3. Valuable activities to do in your routine:

  • Meditate or sit in silence.
  • Express gratitude.
  • Write goals.
  • Exercise.
  • Visualize your successful day.

4.  Last but not least important – you’ll need to get up earlier than you do now.

The coach who posed the morning routine question to us at the luncheon recommended “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. She thought this book would help jumpstart my day with focus. And she was right!

Since reading the book, I’m surprised that I no longer hate getting up at 5:30 a.m. I used to loathe rising early because I had to leave home at 6:15 for my 50-mile drive to work (ugh, how did I ever do that?). I was also a terrible sleeper which didn’t help.

I’m happy to report that after only 8 days into my new morning routine, I’m actually enjoying it. I’ll continue to keep you updated on my progress from time to time.

I highly encourage you to check out the book, if you’re looking for a new way to start a morning routine and get focused.

If you are searching for more ideas about boosting your motivation and health, give me a call!

I am so passionate about this topic: scheduling time off in your business…. you want to know why?

haleakala-katandjasonBecause I didn’t do this for the longest time. I didn’t take a real vacation for years in my starter marriage or in my business….is that ridiculous or what?

Hopefully you don’t need this reminder but I’ll bet there are many more of you like me than not. And vacations don’t mean you have to spend a ton of cash. If you’re on a limited budget or you don’t even have a budget for “fun or vacations” just yet that doesn’t mean you can’t make more money to PUT them into the budget.

Don’t limit yourself. Give yourself something to look forward to for all the hard work you’re putting in. Don’t get burned out or ignore your loved ones. You can do it!!!

There were a bunch of photos on Facebook along with a few Facebook Live videos from our trip to Maui – did you catch them? A few people said they were enjoying a vacation vicariously through our photos which was cool. Here’s a few pics we snapped!
 
kat2-greenOne of the things that I want to talk with you today about and I recorded a video for you on is how to manage your schedule and your business so that you could take more vacations and time off easier.
I get that it may not be easy to think of taking a vacation if your business isn’t totally up and running, profitable or even systematized enough to run without you when you go…..BUT that is NO EXCUSE!

 

You need to make time for some kind of release, unplugging, stress relief, etc. or you may end up getting really burned out.

 

Check out the video below for more detail about how YOU can schedule more time off, freedom and vacations for yourself and your Business!

I’m here today to talk to you about something to move you FORWARD in your business FAST; something that I love to talk about and do…it’s a Vision Board and other ways to create a nurturing, inspiring environment for your Business.

create nurturing inspiring environmentI construct my Vision Boards with Business on one side and Personal on the other. My BIG GOALS are in the middle. My big goals are usually my big money goals for the year – and they are all calculated. What do I mean by that? I determine how many speaking gigs I want for the year, how many people I want at my programs and live events and so on. Think about your BIG GOALS as the number of people you want to serve for the year – then you can easily break those down to monthly goals, weekly goals, and so on.

The thing I love most about Vision Boards is that they are so inspiring! I keep mine where I see it most every day along with pictures of my events, my mastermind group, and other important things going on in my life. I love mentoring and training people so I use those things to inspire me. The point is for you to use things, graphics, pictures of the things you love and love to do to inspire YOU!

Also, a great source of inspiration is your office space. You need a nurturing office space that reminds you daily of what you LOVE. I encourage you to do what you can to configure your office space to INSPIRE YOU! My office design is structured to best inspire me. As you are watching the video, you’ll find out what my LIVE BIG stands for…something that inspires me every day. So just get CREATIVE with your space and your environment!

Check out the video below for more detail about Creating a Nurturing, Inspiring Environment for Business!

Creating a Nurturing, Inspiring Environment for Business!

I’m involved in a lot and I do a lot but it’s my passion! I have plenty to do but it doesn’t have to be grueling hard. It requires passion to serve. So get inspired so you can stay focused every day.
