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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Focus, Follow Through & Finish

mindset May 27, 2021

I've been specializing in working with high-achieving, highly creative women who struggle to reach their potential for the last few years. They are my people, and, the more time I spend with them, the more times I see a particular pattern of behavior. Now, it's not that this pattern never happens with people who aren't high achieving but underperforming women, but that it happens with such regularity with those who are. And, when it's happening, they don't realize it's a problem, until later,...

Immediate Gratification

mindset May 11, 2021

There's a reason why you usually go for the cookie, instead of the celery stick. It's the same reason why you will be scrolling through your Facebook or Instagram feed when you should be doing your laundry or paying your bills. It's not your lack of willpower or weak character or bad genes and it's not entirely your fault. It's your brain. Now the bad news is that this is the only brain you're ever gonna have, so you've got to work with it. The good news is that you can train your brain to be...

mindset Feb 15, 2021
