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...
Are you using timers every day? You may not even realize you do - for cooking, for an alarm clock, etc. But have you considered using them for getting stuff done in life & and business?
Seriously, they are probably the most underutilized feature on my phone and clocks. The other day my family was in the kitchen - and we all looked around to notice it was a complete disaster. (Too many people home during this whole Covid-19 stuff!) My son then suggests we set a timer for 10 minutes and get every member of the family to clean at the same time. My daughters then come downstairs and we Ready-Set-Go!
I can not believe what got done in 10 minutes! My daughter got busy sprucing up the living room and the rest of us ran around like crazy people. My son was emptying the dishwasher, I was picking stuff up off the counter, my husband was moving all our work junk out everywhere and my oldest daughter was cleaning everything she could. To our astonishment, the whole...
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...
So, yes, I just have to ask: Do you fear the chaos when you time block? In addition, are you able to say no to the things that won't help you get to your goals, and say YES to the things that will?
****MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN TO EPISODE 20 about TIME BLOCKING FIRST before this one!
Today I talk about how to get creative with what is going to happen when you time block. Your house may become a mess. You may need help babysitting. You might need help with groceries and meal prep. So now it’s time to enlist help from others or you may have to pay for it. Do not let menial and unimportant things get in the way of you accomplishing your business goals - and sucking up your time!
I’m so happy you are being serious about your time and taking steps to make sure you have focussed hours to better yourself and your business!

Oh yes, working from home can be hard. All the distractions, phone dings, action going on outside, TV, other people around on the phone or talking, etc.
And I know it all too well. Until the end of last year, I was working with all of those distractions. I got work done, but things weren't happening at the speed I needed them to.
I used to exercise whenever in the morning - maybe 8:30 or 9:30 or 10:30 or 12 - then would work at the kitchen table as permitted. I could work at a desk but no, I wanted the TV on with the news, and let my dogs in and out and eat snacks as needed.
I soon realized that was not working. I needed to concentrate. I didn’t need anymore of these distractions.
Then I discovered the one method that changed everything: TIME BLOCKING. Yes, I started to block my time. And it has been absolutely a God-send!
The first thing you have to do with this method is block your time off. So last December I booked...
