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...

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...

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...

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...
