The Six Habits with Laura DiBennedetto

 

Nearly everyone declares happiness as a life goal, and takes whatever actions they think will lead to a happy outcome.  We buy things, start relationships, go places and seek out experiences because of how we think they will make us feel, hopefully happy.  This pursuit of happiness can turn out well, but it’s just as likely to lead to a mountain of debt and massive disappointment.  Until we realize that happiness is not something we could earn, acquire or attract,...

Buffering

The dictionary definition of a buffer is something that lessens the impact of something else, such as a chemical buffer that reduces the effect of one solution on another. A buffer can also refer to a person that prevents incompatible or antagonistic people from coming into contact with or irritating each other. I am immediately reminded of my family, full of strong personalities that don’t always get along well on their own, but when other, less confrontational personalities in...

Breaking Through Your Upper Limits

entrepreneurship podcast Jul 31, 2021
 

So this week we are going to continue with the theme of upper limit issues, which refers to the unconscious habits we have that keep us from experiencing all the health, happiness and success we are striving for.  Two weeks ago, we talked about how to identify these upper limit issues- what they are, what purpose they serve and how they got into our unconscious minds to begin with.  In this episode, we are going to discuss the categories of behavior that let us know when we...

What I Learned About Sales from a Homeless Guy

blog grit mindset rejection Jul 27, 2021

When chatting amongst my coaching colleagues, the comment I hear most often when the subject of sales or selling comes up is how much they hate it. And even when they don't hate it, they wish there was a way to sell that didn't feel 'salesy'. Many coaches I've met just really love coaching and believe they are skilled at it, but absolutely can't stand to sell. This leads to only two possibilities -they have a coaching "hobby" ( it's not a business unless you have income) or they work in...

Overcoming Sales Avoidance with Erika Tebbens

entrepreneurship podcast Jul 27, 2021
 

Far too many fabulous female entrepreneurs are falling short of their income goals because they are brilliant at what they do, they suck at selling, so I invited sales and marketing consultant Erika Tebbens to join me on the podcast.  Erika helps women and gender expansive entrepreneurs get comfortable getting paid.

Actually, It Is All About You

blog confidence Jul 21, 2021

Have you ever been in the position of needing to find a way to fit in, belong or make connections in a new city? I am reminded of this right now because I moved from Los Angeles, where I had lived since birth, to Portland, OR two years ago. I didn't know a single person here, but I was ready for a change and my plan is to make Portland home. Well, thanks to the pandemic, I still only got a chance to meet a handful of people, but I'm still an extrovert by nature, so it's only a matter of...

How Much Success Can You Tolerate?

podcast Jul 19, 2021
 

I am totally obsessed with helping women bust through their self imposed limits and busting through my own.  For this week’s solo episode, we are kicking off a mini-series on the topic of upper limit issues - what they are, how to know if you have them (spoiler alert, if you are human, you DO…) and most importantly, how to eliminate them so you can reach your true potential. 

I have met countless intelligent, driven, ambitious women who unconsciously hold...

The Modern Entrepreneur

blog entrepreneurship Jul 13, 2021

I used to think that there were natural-born entrepreneurs, those bold and unconventional types that could never be tied down to the monotony and predictability of the 9 to 5. These entrepreneurs are the mavericks, the rule-breakers, the kids who didn't do well in school, either because they were bored silly by what was being taught or they couldn't sit still long enough to actually learn the stuff, boring or not. These entrepreneurs walked fast, talked fast and made fast decisions. Their...

Helping Women Take Their Next Step with Tricia Dempsey

entrepreneurship podcast Jul 09, 2021
 

Today’s guest, Tricia Dempsey always knew she was driven and ambitious, but she got a lot of messages about what girls can’t do growing up that lead her to make choices that felt like a too-tight pair of shoes.  Dad said OK to playing basketball, but when Tricia wanted to go into sales and got a hard NO, she chose the socially sanctioned path of teaching, which she did until she just couldn’t face a room of middle schoolers anymore.  

Tricia left...

Stretch, Don't Settle

Whether you're looking for a romantic partner or searching for your next job opportunity, we're essentially talking about supply and demand. Having something to offer (aka being "marketable") is obviously important, but so is what we are thinking about our situation. One of my clients is a 47-year-old man who is changing jobs and my 20-year-old niece is single and looking for her next boyfriend. I'm struck by the similarities in their unconscious beliefs about themselves and the world, even...
