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: ...
I heard a great saying the other day - and it hit me like a brick:
"You can't have what you aren't willing to become." Wow. Think about that for a minute. Think about it in terms of your life - AND business.
In today's episode, I share how you can create boundaries & parameters for what you are and aren't willing to do - because it matters big-time.
Let me repeat the saying again: “You can’t have what you aren’t willing to become.” Let it sink in….
It made me reflect on my process of seriously considering opening a facial spa in my town. After working through everything with the consultant…I soon realized what I WAS NOT willing to sacrifice to have that business.
I was not willing to risk all the money in a town that had many awesome businesses go out of business.
I was not willing to work 6 days a week until 7pm since 2 of my 3 kids are still home.
I was not willing to do ALL of that considering I am not the breadwinner of the...
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...
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!

Today I have a frank and deep talk with Mary Hodges of Abundantly Being
about how we all seem to think that we need to run and market our businesses like everyone else - and we don't.
It's time to question the rules and step back! Take some time to really decide what is authentic to you and create a plan around that.
In addition, we are so distracted that we aren't leaving time for creativity and real productive time to build our businesses authentically.
I'm so excited for you to hear the talk - and let me know if you agree! ___________________________________________________________________________
