The Confidence Habit

confidence mindset Sep 13, 2021
 

I have been working with women for many years and one of the more perplexing things I have encountered is how often I witness bold, brilliant, badass women doubting themselves, settling for less than they really want, and holding themselves back from the level of success they deserve.  

I believe that all behavior is habit-forming, so in order to become more confident, women need to stop thinking so much and just act. We need to commit to doing work that is good...

Crowdsourcing Your Self Esteem

Even though I am fascinated by the internet and its impact on culture, I am deeply grateful that I grew up before this digital age. It was hard enough navigating adolescent angst, sexual exploration and trying to figure out who the hell you were and what you wanted, all before senior ditch day for my generation. It seems infinitely more complicated today. As I observe the pressures experienced by Gen Y youth through the eyes of my nieces and younger clients, it's not the least bit surprising...

The Pinocchio Principle

Have you ever noticed that most people have a real problem with the truth? Now, I do realize that 'the truth' is totally subjective, and each of us has our own reality, our own personal experience of whatever is happening to us and around us. We also have different perspectives and values, so what we pay attention to also differs from person to person. I've always found it funny that you're having a heart-to-heart, semi-serious conversation with someone and then all of a sudden, they lower...

Client Success Story: Meet Tanya

 

One of my favorite things about Client Success Story episodes is that I get to reconnect with some of my favorite people.  Today we are joined by Tanya, a project manager, wife and mom who had already burned out once and was on the fast track to a second round.  When she first decided to work with me, after hearing me being interviewed on a podcast, Tanya was feeling overwhelmed, defeated by her own mindset and had lost confidence in her ability to manage her...

Married to Your Business

Even though your spouse or partner may have recognized your entrepreneurial traits when you met or you were already up to your eyelashes in your first (or fifth venture)  they might not ever truly understand or accept it. We truly are a different breed. If you happen to be smart, self-aware or just plain lucky enough to find someone who finds your intensity, passion, risk taking, distractibility, creativity, perfectionism and chronic tardiness endearing, you are beyond...

The Side Hustle Entrepreneur with Vanessa Zamy

 

We have all heard the stories of the woman who gave her boss the finger, strode out of her job in her high heels and launched a 6-figure online business overnight, but this is not only a fairy tale, but how many of us could go for who-knows-how-long without a paycheck as a first time entrepreneur? Unless you are an heiress, married into money or are living in your car and living on the dollar menu and free Wifi at McDonalds, the side hustle route makes a lot more sense.  ...

The Joy of Missing Out

I freaking love technology, even though I'm a bit slow to learn most of it. I love how technology enables me to shop for stuff I need at any time of the day or night, with hat hair and a rosacea breakout, no makeup and wearing my favorite pair of baggy sweatpants. Companies that have free shipping both ways, in addition to my favorite goods and services, will have my business indefinitely, or at least until someone even better comes along. Technology has enabled me to meet, communicate with...

Your Zone of Genius

Many of my clients hire me because they have plateaued in their business and don’t know how to move to the next level.  If I was a typical business coach, I would fire up a spreadsheet,  start talking about business models, paid advertising and scaling their offer.  But, I have learned from my own entrepreneurial journey that until you truly understand your Zone of Genius,  you won’t find more satisfaction at the next level, in fact, you’re probably...

The Power of Consistency

Have you ever wanted to do something, something big, something hard, something that would take a long time to finish? Maybe it was earning a college degree, building a business, learning to speak a foreign language or mastering a musical instrument or athletic skill. Many of the things that we desire in life require a sustained effort over a long period of time and for those of us with a not-so-lengthy attention span, this can be daunting. In fact, I am willing to bet, without even knowing...
