In today's episode, I discuss how you share your business with others - and how you want to feel confident & proud of what you are doing - right? But I meet so many that talk about their business and don't seem totally proud of it. Many of you find yourselves hesitating when talking about it or sharing it with others - for a number of reasons.
Today I delve into 3 big reasons why some business owners aren't fully proud of their business and how you can overcome those.
After all, you should be proud of what you have created. You should be proud of this awesome business and everything you have put into it! And yes, you should be proud of how you can better people's lives!
I hope you will listen today and think this through and how you can make sure you can confidently speak about your business and share it with others!

Have you ever thought about whether you have a scarcity or abundance mindset when it comes to your business? Are you operating out of fear or optimism? I had never really thought this through and realized that sometimes I even was working with a scarcity mindset...and I want to turn that into a mindset of abundance!
So what is a scarcity mindset? It is a way of living in fear. It’s fear of your business failing. Fear the market is saturated. Fear that you won’t make money. Fear that you don’t have what it takes to build a thriving business. Fear of the way you love. Fear that you don’t know enough. Fear of taking any risks.
As you can see, this is stifling you. This is slowing you down. This is doing you NO GOOD.
What would an abundant mindset look like? Feeling secure in who you are. Realizing there is enough to go around. Keep focussed on your mission. Realizing that you have something special that only YOU can offer the world.
I give you 5 tips...

There is no better time than now to get your business started!
1 - EVERYONE is online! Yes, your business can be seen and known so easily!
2 - It is so CHEAP to get your business online right now - for real! You do not have to spend thousands yet to get your business creating income. You can begin a Facebook page or group and simply start selling there. Or you could open an Etsy store - or even have your own website like I do - on Squarespace, which is only about $25 a month. So, no more excuse that it is expensive to start your business.
3 - Remember that every day you stall, you are depriving the world of what you have to offer. Yes, you have unique strengths, knowledge, experience, and creative passions that the world needs.
I’m so excited for you to get your business going and can’t wait to see you get started!
Trying to figure out what business YOU should start? Here's a way to figure it out: ...
Have you ever felt like your business is less-than compared to other businesses you see around you? Do you feel like you don't quite measure up & find yourself wondering how you are ever going to be as successful as "they" are? Have you noticed that it's lowering your self-confidence?
Then it’s time to get a grip and stop comparing yourself to others - it’s doing you no good! You don’t realize how much you are probably subconsciously comparing your business on a daily basis.
We all know the effects of how social media causes anxiety with teenagers. I’m a parent - and if you are too then it’s a big topic I’m sure you have had to cover with your kiddos. Science has proven what constant comparison can do to your brain and how it can negatively affect the kids.
The same goes for you and your business too. Here’s the big ways it’s affecting you and may not even know it:
1 - It steals your...
Have you ever had an ah-ha moment or revelation come to you at the oddest time? Meaning have you ever been in the shower or just when you woke up in the morning and all of the sudden come up with a great idea? You are not alone - there is actually SCIENCE behind it!
Personally I have experienced ah-ha moments right when I woke up in the morning. I can think of 3 major times in my life when I had big decisions I was pondering and trying to figure out solutions for…and WHAM: when I woke up in the morning I had the answer! And those answers came to me just as I was waking up, still in bed, still groggy.
So, I started researching why this could be. And I found out some interesting things! First of all, many people know for themselves whether they are night owls, or morning people or somewhere in between. And with that, most then think they would be most productive when at the time of day that corresponds with that. And they are...
Are you struggling personally, or in your business? Feeling anxious during this whole shift that is taken place in our world with the quarantine?
Realize that your struggle today is actually the process that you NEED to be going through to become the person you are truly meant to be!
I heard a story the other day that my pastor shared and I just had to share it here:
"The emperor moth is the most majestic species among all the moths. It has wide wings spanning out majestically when it flies. Before it can become a full-grown moth, it has to be a pupa in a cocoon. Now, the interesting fact about the moth’s cocoon is that the neck of the cocoon is very narrow.
In order that it becomes a moth, the pupa of the moth must squeeze its way out of the narrow neck. One day a man found a cocoon of an emperor moth. He took it home so that he could watch the moth come out of the cocoon. He sat and watched the moth struggling to force the body through that little hole. Then it seemed...
In last week's episode (23), I shared how why and how to start crafting your personal VISION statement. This week I share now how to take the next step and create your personal MISSION statement. Yes, they are 2 different things - and you need them both!
Whereas your vision statement is about your future self, your MISSION statement is about the actions you can take today to move towards your vision. Whereas your vision statement is your NORTH STAR, your mission statement is your COMPASS. So your mission statement is your over-arching action plan - not the specifics but the big-picture idea.
Here are the questions you want to answer in your mission statement:
What do I do?
Whom do I serve?
How will I serve them
Here is an example of a statement: To use my [skills or expertise] to inspire/lead [group of people] so that [ultimate goal].
As a bonus gift to yourself, go ahead and write out your top 5 values. This is part of who...
We all know businesses create vision statements, but what about you - have you created your own PERSONAL vision statement?
It’s time to create yours today if you have never taken the time. It can be your over-arching guide, GPS, north start, compass for everything you do. This will help ensure that you stay guided and on the path you have set out to take for your life.
Well, here are the reasons why you need to do it:
It forces you to know yourself better.
It clarifies the direction for your life.
It actually inspires you and gives you more joy in all that you are doing.
It motivates you on unproductive days.
It only has to be 1-2 sentences and can be something you memorize and keep top of mind every day! Get the 2-page Personal Vision Statement Guide below and get started on yours today!
Everyone's perspectives are different - from the way we see things in life and in our businesses.
With this Corona Virus, we all have a perspective on why it is happening, where it started, etc. And the sad part is, it's hurting many small businesses. And it completely breaks my heart. I know the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into building a business, and I pray this whole debacle ends soon.
But what perspective are you taking during this time? Doom & Gloom ...or do you see it as an opportunity to grow? Read more about how you can gut check your perspective on all this!
