Are you ready to BLAB?

Yes, I do mean talking….it’s Blab.im, it’s one of the newest online social platforms out there and it’s FREE!

I’ve been checking it out this last month or so and believe me….I’m BEHIND, there are so many friends of mine and others doing some BIG Things already on BLAB!

I decided one day just to try it out so I went online, clicked around to the blabs that were “on air” at the moment and IN I WAS! I didn’t know that everyone in the “chat room” could see everyone who joins but it was fun.  I watched for a bit, fascinated at what you were allowed to do….all for free!

So the next time I went into one of my friend’s blabs and she brought me on video (you never have to be on video if you don’t want to be, you can just watch and listen or type in the chat area). That was fun to interact live!

So that’s when I said I was just going to do one….

My first one was pretty good actually, we had participants who actually needed some advice for their business. You can watch the FIRST BLAB I did here now.

So today I “scheduled” a blab and marketed it and everything….but not a lot of people came. They sort of come in and out like an open house party you might hold! It was still fun though. You can Click the video image to watch today’s blab now.

 

Next time I’m going to schedule the Blab but also have a clear strategy for what we’ll talk about plus I’ll bring in a Co-Host. A few people recommend doing that just in case there are technical difficulties but also so you have someone to talk to until others show up!

YOU CAN DO A BLAB TOO!

Subscribe to my Blab feed and you’ll get notices when I do another one and I’d love you to show up and contribute!  SUBSCRIBE HERE NOW. Just click to FOLLOW ME (it’s owned by Twitter).

 

Here’s to your Success!

Successful people have lots of energy – did you know that?

That’s something they all have in common it seems. They’re not lethargic, lazy or run down. They take care of themselves, their minds and their bodies. (Of course they can afford it right?)

It’s not easy taking time out of building your business to invest that time in yourself, self-development or health and fitness but we need to right? We only have the ONE body after all!

In this video today, I’m continuing a 4 week Biz Tip Series from a recent conference that was amazing!

Check out when their next conference is here:  http://www.1LifeFullyLived.org

One of the speakers, Rock Thomas, gave some tips I’m sharing with you in this video today about some habits of highly successful people and entrepreneurs!

I know, I’m implementing some of this stuff even more now with his reminder – listen in!

I wanted to share an article with you today from one of the Speakers/Sponsors of my upcoming Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit happening on November 19-21, 2015. Robin Treasure is a Wellness Coach and Strategist who helps entrepreneurs sustain our energy, health and more! This is a very important topic and something I’m working on myself now.” ~ Katrina Sawa

As a driven entrepreneur, you may be wondering how much longer your energy levels will keep up with the pace of your life.  Here are a few signs that burnout may be affecting you:

•    You feel tired all the time, regardless of how much sleep you get at night
•    You feel exhausted after a workout – especially the following day
•    You catch every bug going around
•    You’re overwhelmed by challenges that you used to cope with easily

When you’re driven, it can be difficult to let go and do less, but when it comes to adrenal health, as wellBiz woman stress dreamstime_s_48835745 as your waistline and energy levels, less really is more.  That’s especially true when it comes to exercise.

“Just do more cardio, and you’ll lose that belly fat and get a surge of energy”, right? Wrong!  While some form of exercise is beneficial for nearly everyone, it’s important to pay attention to what type of exercise your body responds best to, because you might be sabotaging your own efforts without realizing it and contributing to the burnout you could be experiencing.

We’ve spent decades glorifying the “burn” of intense exercise like P90X and marathon running. But what about the countless people who sweat out their lives on treadmills and in spinning classes, only to feel chubbier and more exhausted? What’s going on there?

The answer has to do with your overall stress load. Endurance exercise and intense cardio are perceived by the body as a stressor, which results in a surge of the hormone cortisol. Made by the adrenal glands, cortisol is a vital hormone that’s supposed to follow a natural high-to-low pattern over the course of the day.

But if you’re faced with high levels of stress – from your business, your relationships, an overly restrictive diet, processed foods, or even your exercise routine – your cortisol levels will remain unnaturally high.

What happens when your cortisol levels are unnaturally high?
•    You hold onto stubborn belly fat despite dieting and spending hours at the gym
•    You have trouble sleeping at night, even if you feel tired during the day
•    You crave sugar and maybe even a few glasses of wine to unwind in the evening

If that pattern of unrelenting stress continues unchecked, your body may stop producing enough cortisol, resulting in a condition known as adrenal fatigue, or burnout. You can think of it as “burning up” your adrenal glands. Truthfully, your adrenal glands can still function, but the hormonal feedback loop breaks down, and that’s when you short-circuit.

So, do you think you’re in burnout now?

Intense cardio alone probably won’t lead to burnout, but with our stressful, fast-paced lives, it’s important to exercise in a way that relieves your stress rather than adding to it.

So you may be wondering “all right then, what’s the best exercise for me?” Unfortunately there’s no simple answer, as it all depends on the individual. For many people, just three 30-minute sessions of High Intensity Interval Training per week will bring many health benefits and is far better than traditional endurance cardio.

But if you struggle with fatigue, especially adrenal fatigue, and if you find yourself feeling more tired after a workout, you need to dramatically cut back on the intensity of your exercise. And if you’re facing a lot of stress – as many of us do! The goal is to find a form of movement that calms your stress response system, like a leisurely walk in nature, or gentle yoga.

You might think that reducing the intensity of your exercise would mean weight gain, but you’ll find it actually helps you lose unwanted pounds simply by reducing your cortisol levels, for the reasons I mentioned above.

When you find a form of movement that works for you personally, you’ll feel a shift in your energy and Robin Treasure photo by Robin Clarkoverall wellbeing.

 During the month of February I thought I’d share a lot of articles and videos around the topic of love. I already wrote about how to love yourself successful, gave you secrets to finding your love and this week and next I want to discuss more about love for what you do and developing a love for marketing. I hope this is helpful for many of you.

What are you doing now for your career or profession? Is it what you are truly meant to be doing for the rest of your life? Are you 100% happy all the time and love getting out of bed to do what you do? Whether you’re in a J-O-B or you have your own business, it’s either a resounding “YES!” or an “I’m not sure,” which really means, “No, probably not.” Let’s help you get clear whether or not you’re doing what you should be doing.

So if you think you’re happy doing what you do now, then answer the following questions first, and if your answer to all of them is a “Yes,” then great; regardless, keep reading.

  • Are you truly passionate about what you’re doing?
  • Does what you do make you want to jump out of bed in the morning and get to it?
  • Do you love what you’re doing so much that you would do it for free?
  • Does what you offer make a big impact on your customers or clients?
  • Are you constantly investing in yourself to learn more, be more, and find ways to make more money?
  • Do you truly believe in yourself that what you offer, your expertise, and what you charge is totally worth it or what you make is valuing you enough?

Now, for those of you who are doing something you don’t love, I would imagine you didn’t give so many yeses. That’s OK, but what isn’t OK is staying where you are and settling for what you’re doing now. Why would you do that?

For Security? Money? Benefits? Stability? Kids?

If you’re doing something for those reasons, you could be undervaluing yourself and settling, plain and simple. Regardless of your financial situation and responsibilities, there are so many ways to make money these days, online and offline; it amazes me why some people would prefer to be miserable or even remotely unhappy.

I’m not a family therapist, but I’m just guessing that being miserable or unhappy doesn’t help your family; it hurts it. Being miserable or unhappy even to the smallest extent makes you sick more often, too. Who wants to be sick? Being sick more often due to being miserable, depressed, or unhappy could lead to worse diseases. There are many examples of that.

Happiness and joy help to fight disease and stress. In fact, I have one friend who beat cancer thanks in large part to her happy, focused mental attitude, all without any harsh drugs, too. I’m not telling you you’ll be healthier if you do what you love, but, come on, it is bound to make a huge impact on your overall health and well-being. It’s up to you.

Action step:

Think about how long you are going to stay in a job or business that doesn’t make you completely happy if that’s your current situation. Give yourself a deadline to get out of it. Develop the action plan to make that happen. Now think about what types of fears you may be facing. List them out or journal about them and where you think they stem from. Becoming aware of your fears and blocks is the first step to getting over them.

“If we all did the things we are capable
of doing, we would literally 
astound ourselves.” 
- Thomas Edison
