There’s long been hype about thinking big and dreaming big.
You know the adage, shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll hit the stars.
That’s lovely and inspiring.
But, it doesn't work for entrepreneurs who want more visibility and clients.
People don't care much about the “big” events in our lives.
The graduations, certifications, weddings, or other "moon and stars" milestones.
Formal events tend to feel staged and predictable.
Same for our introductions, stories, and "About Me" pages.
If they are filled with milestones, people lose interest.
Look, prospects will get to your qualifications.
First, though, you've gotta show up real and relatable.
Like a human being who is easy to connect with.
That's why successful speakers and entrepreneurs pay close attention to ordinary (smaller) moments.
The gold in your story is the seemingly mundane smaller things in life that have deeply affected you.
Ordinary moments often morph...
Humans are born with only 2 fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises.
Science proves it.
Everything else you’re afraid of was learned, most likely in your childhood (0-7 years old)
And we carry these fears—and the stories behind them—with us…for years.
• You talk about being afraid of heights.
• You talk about being afraid of dogs, spiders, or snakes.
• You talk about your fear of public speaking. Then, you give momentum to your (learned) story by talking about the presentation you messed up…in 2012.
Our words create our worlds.
And they usually keep us from growing ourselves and our businesses.
So, what are you afraid of, aside from maybe falling and loud noises?
My client, Don, was reflecting with me about how transformative this fear lesson has been for him.
Don’s a super smart techie.
He was studying computer languages long before the rest of us found the Internet.
His programs have been used by the Pentagon and...
Celebrating my private coaching client Teri and her 3 new clients!
I have SO much respect for Teri because she was open to seeing things from a fresh perspective.
In our first conversation, Teri admitted she needed clients for her new consulting practice. Still she was worried about spending the money to work together.
You see, being a bold entrepreneur scared the crapola out of Teri. But instead of doing nothing and staying scared, she jumped in anyway.
And within a few weeks of getting clarity around her message and online presence, Teri landed 3 new clients for her consulting business!!
How did the shift happen?
Teri moved from limiting beliefs to bold when I said: Trust yourself. The Universe respects bold.
I KNOW this is true because I experience it as well. It can be scary to make sizable investments in ourselves and our businesses.
A few months ago, I was a wreck. I was deciding whether to invest $30k in a year-long...
I am LOVING my amazing client who brought in more money in Q4 of 2021 than all 3 previous quarters combined!
Yep, John Woods beat a big competitor in the employee health benefits field.
The contract was worth $61,000.
Here's the kicker: John had his best year—during the Pandemic! (Most of my other clients have as well )
How did this banner year happen when John's marketing was inconsistent and paid ads didn't convert?
John says the results **finally** showed up…WHEN HE SHOWED UP, for himself. He made a commitment to private coaching with me.
And I immediately nailed John's real issue.
It had ZILCH to do with marketing.
John had to clear out the blocks around his internal story and self-worth.
John had never heard this from other coaches or consultants.
He had to love his story --and himself--so decision-makers could appreciate his value and approach--and hire him.
Bottom line: If...
You can practically hear the clock ticking.
As New Year’s Eve approaches, the world is keenly aware of hours, minutes, and seconds.
Look, I love a party, but making resolutions irks me, and here's why.
Have you resolved to quit binge-watching Netflix and volunteer as a mentor in your community? Or finally launch your podcast? Or worse…join the gym? (gassssp!)
Let's get real.
You don’t need a split second on Dec. 31st when the ball drops in Times Square to get on track. You have the power right now to do better.
It's not a resolution; it's a decision.
You can simply DECIDE—like I have done for many years—to stop waiting for the countdown, champagne, and party hats. It's called stalling and giving away your power.
I used to put soooo much pressure on...
I am busting at the seams with excitement and pride.
I am now the CEO of my 21-year-old communications company.
On Monday, I woke up as the founder of Get in Front Communications.
By 11 AM, I stopped everything and decided to give myself a long-overdue promotion to CEO.
It took years of me doing the same freakin’ thing…over and over…and expecting different results. (I know…it’s called madness.)
And as the hamster wheel began spinning on Monday, I made a decision. I DECIDED that this is not how a successful CEO operates day-to-day.
I’m getting real here so hold onto your hats.
And please, no judgment. “We teach what we need to learn,” said Jane Fonda.
You see, I’ve spent the past few months searching for the “right” Virtual Assistant.
That's fine, but not at the same time as a...
Celebrating my INCREDIBLE client John Woods who is adding $250,000 in new business over the next 12 months (a 400% ROI) during the Pandemic while using my Story Funnel System!
And that’s only for part of his business!
John and I met when I was the keynote speaker at a Mastermind coaching program he was in.
Even though my presentation was online, John and I were able to connect quickly.
Yes, he was already enrolled in a high-level and high-priced business coaching program.
Still, something was missing around his message and mindset that kept him from reaching his true potential as an entrepreneur.
When the virus hit 18 months ago, John knew it was finally time to clean up his messaging and communication so he could speak confidently with corporate CFOs and close more clients....
He had the stories in his heart and his head.
But David couldn’t get them out on paper.
No, it wasn’t a sales presentation or media coaching.
David was an accomplished project manager and engineer who was referred to me by a mutual business acquaintance.
He had a personal communication project that was new to me.
Look, I had ghostwritten nearly 1,000 posts, articles, bios, speeches, editorials and messages during my 35 years in the news and communication industry.
But never one like this.
David needed a Father of the Bride speech for his daughter Melissa’s rehearsal dinner.
This was big; 150 people at the dinner and 500 for the wedding the next day. David knew some of the guests intimately; the others he had never met.
People would be watching.
It could be a tough crowd.
