How to Show Enthusiasm (Even when your not the most enthusiastic person you know)

Ideation
Enthusiasm turns Everyday boring, into an experience! Dance when you walk into your office, if you’re alone or with friends. Gets your blood pumping, makes your feel silly, and it makes everyone come alive! Challenge yourself daily to disrupt with fun things. Example: at 11:03 every day, toss a coffee bean into the air and try to catch it with your mouth. “But I’m afraid!” Turn your fear into enthusiasm. Use that fear as a guiding post of your future, and go that way. Smiling can help you get through it. It will not kill you. Fear and excitement are emotions caused by the same chemical release in the human brain, with the only difference being the story we have about the thing causing the emotion. Turn that “But I’m…

Do exactly what you wanna do in your business

Irresistible
Follow your gut, do things that scare you a little, and above all else, honor your curiosities! It is in those moments that magic is made in your own experience, and breakthroughs occur. Don’t cower to ‘what it’s supposed to look like’ or you will fail. This is your business, right?!? If you think a thing will make your biz look good, you’re doing it for them. If you think doing a thing because it would be rad, now you’re on to something awesome. Be interested, not interesting. Ask a lot of questions of people you admire who are ahead of you in the game, not because you are stealing their ideas, but because you are hungry to learn and be a better you. Be generous with you ‘thank you’s’…

How To Turn Your Blog Into an Income Source

Speaking
The key to turning your established blog into an income generating tool is in traffic. Traffic comes from engagement and getting the word out about your blog in many different ways. Do people like to visit and read your content? How many unique visitors do you have on you blog every month? If you have over 25000 unique visitors per month, logistically, you are in the perfect position to turn your blog into an income machine. Ideas: Become a partner in some of the blogger networks out there. Not great money, but $$ are $$.

Handful of Headlines

Speaking
First things first- what’s the big idea? Good ideas come when you slow down long enough to think about the reality of your business. Every day, I see businesses passing up media opportunities mostly because they are afraid that ‘no one will show up to their party.’ They don’t even try. It is a reality. But every business person that does great on a TV interview started as a frightened mouse-like person that almost peed their pants before the camera guy Steven said, “3… 2… 1… You’re on.”   To get your creative juices flowing for your business, I have prepared a handful of headlines for you to take, modify, and blast forth into content land.   How-To Headlines: How To Take a Compliment; life coach and mother of four…

11 Step Simple PR Hack for Small Business Owners

Content Generation, Speaking
Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity. ~weil I am so guilty of this one... sitting in front of the computer screen, wanting to say something relevant to the land beyond called "Online", say something to inspire, to share what was happening in my business life, to connect with people. Instead of saying something intelligent, I say something really dumb just to say something, and then wonder why people didn't like or comment on my post. As I started to experiment with client work and content efforts for my own enterprise, I learned a few things. Making content is shit work if you don't do it this way. You may as well do it this way so people start talking about you and how cool you are. When…

How to Achieve Balance in Business and Life

Speaking
Standing in the back of the room at Ignite today, I'm busy doing a tree pose, cause it makes my body feel amazing on and off between sitting and stair hopping. Have you done the tree pose? Try it now. Leg straight, sole of one foot on opposite leg. See picture. Now hold for the count of 5 breaths. It's not as easy as it appears. While trying to achieve balance in this pose, as in life, I try to make the perfect pose with my body. I try to do the right thing. The only thing is, I keep fucking falling over!
