Ideas & Execution

It’s common for entrepreneurs to be long on ideas and short on execution. That’s why I created a service called VIP Strategy Session. Recently, a client and I spent the day at my friend’s lake cottage. Amidst the lovely summer sounds of creaking frogs and singing birds — with fish jumping and frolicking in the warm lake water, she and I got busy creating her dream fulfillment strategy. She came to play with so many ideas, and her main goal …

Doing Work You Love

Why is doing work you love important? Because your work is your calling. I know, darlings. I make it sound so easy. While it isn’t easy to discover your deepest calling, it’s worth every drop of blood, tears and frustration it takes. I know this from my own experience. I spent the first 45 years of my life wandering into one job or another, always excelling and always becoming bored or disenchanted at some point. And then I would jump …

Adopting a Wealth Mindset

Yesterday, I facilitated another live online community session, which I’ve aptly named “Insight Cafe.” It’s where members of the Entrepreneur Gold Community come together in a workshop setting, to learn and integrate new ideas and insights into their business and personal development. I believe there is nothing more valuable than adopting a healthy mindset within which a person creates the shape of their life. Our topic yesterday was focused on the differences between how “rich people” think, and how “average …

Passionate Action Trumps Fear

Hello love-chop, You read it right: passionate action trumps fear. I'm about to show you how. There are so many things to be afraid of in my world, as it spins in the direction of change. Let me indulge you for a moment while I list the areas of my life that are in flux. 1. Soulful Spring Cleaning is launching in a few days, with fewer people than I expected (There's still time to get registered if you're ready). ...

Opening Space for New Beginnings

I’ve been involved in developing a new project, The CoQuora Project for the past several months, which is launching this month. David Firth and I have never been more inspired by our work, and each day when we speak, the movement and our ideas about it grow new and stronger roots. We agree that though we have built a solid business plan, springing from powerful ideas and an urgent need by the people we serve...that there is something that wants ...

Soulful Spring Cleaning: What is Possible For You?

I love this time of year in the midwest, as winter takes its last breath in giant heaves. As the sun-warmed air invites me to open the windows, or take a long walk -- it's also an invitation to clear the clutter. It's a Spring Cleaning invitation that lets more light in. You know what it feels like, don't you? When I take the time to consider the things I'm holding onto, that perhaps no longer fit in with my ...

The Illusion of Separation

Even though we feel so separate, it's an illusion. In our commitment to being right -- in our habit of black and white thinking where something is good or something is bad, we perpetuate the false idea that we are somehow apart. All of religion teaches this concept of oneness. Quantum Science proves it with scientific data. And still we resist the truth of it, as though we somehow are safer if we're separate. Separation IS an illusion. “And one ...

Open Hearts and Politics: What Can You Do?

My Facebook feed is filled with politically polarizing diatribes, so much so, that I find myself imagining moving to Canada or some tropical island until the US presidential election is over. I know it’s not a good answer for what’s really bothering me. And I'm on a mission to open hearts. It hurts my heart to see so many people succumb to desperation…people who want to see our country “become great again.” The disconnection from source. The disillusionment. The belief ...

Online Entrepreneur Community

You don't have to do this alone. A little more than a year ago, I had an idea. Please know -- I get lots of ideas. It's a burden sometimes to have an endless flow of ideas with the potential for execution. But this particular idea eventually resulted in a live Entrepreneur Cafe workshop in my Goshen studio, and has since morphed into an online entrepreneur community. Hello, execution! Because as an entrepreneur, you need support, even though you get trapped ...
Outing Your Inner Critic

Outing Your Inner Critic

Your Inner Critic Speaks Loudly A client and friend was asked to present her perspective for a summit for writers this week. She is nothing short of brilliant as a writing coach, writer — and overall an amazing human being. I’ve experienced her talent first hand, as she’s also my writing coach. In short, she rocks. She completed her interview this week and afterwards felt very good about the quality of information she delivered. I checked in with her via text, …
