I still remember the conversation I had with my grandmother before the end of her life. She and my grandfather spent 20 years traveling after he retired. They were on the road in their motor home 9 months out of the year. They built a community of other travelers around the US, Mexico and Canada. When they could no longer drive, they started going on cruises, until they could no longer travel.
But what blew me away was that conversation, where I asked my grandmother, “Is there anything you didn’t do that you wish you had done?” And she said to me, “I wish I had traveled more.”
That was the day I realized that we have to strive for our dreams, even when we might feel fear.
I have since taken actions that scared me to death! But as a result, I am living my dream. I have a business I enjoy, I help people change their lives and create THEIR dreams, I earn a six figure income, and I do it working three days a week working from my home office. Continue reading
Does fear of making the wrong decision in your wellness business paralyze you? Do you procrastinate because you’re just not sure of the ‘right’ thing to do?
Making mistakes is a fundamental part of who we are.
But when you make a decision and it doesn’t turn out as you expected, is that really a mistake? Or is it fate showing up, and is what was meant to happen anyway? Continue reading
It seems each year there comes a time where I have to take a step back and re-evaluate my plans. You can probably relate: You pack too much in, because you just think you CAN.
But then you realize you CAN’T!
Now, some people just fall into overwhelm and beat themselves up, thinking they should be able to do it all. Afterall, don’t OTHER people pack sixteen hours into 8, or 10, or 12???
No, they really don’t. Or, let’s re-phrase that. They don’t do it WELL. Or they don’t have a life.
It’s very simple. When you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and as if you have packed too much into your day, week, month, life, re-evaluate and remove.
Call it the two R’s: Re-evaluate and remove.
It’s that simple. And with that, this is it for this blog!
Let me know how it goes for you!

You might be a registered dietitian or nutritionist, or perhaps even a wellness coach, who wants to expand your online presence. But no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to make it work for you!
This is quite common, so don’t feel alone. But often there are a few essentials that seem to be missing for wellness professionals. Let’s take a look at what you can do to build that wildly compelling online presence and turn your business around. Continue reading
Let’s face it; today’s environment is EXTREMELY hectic! You know; you’re running or building your wellness business, yet you have kids to run off to school, or worse, summer vacation has started! And you have cooking, cleaning, shopping. Oh, and try to get a workout in on a regular basis, not to mention just being able to feel you can SLOW DOWN and RELAX a bit! You tell yourself, “Tomorrow I’ll relax.”
But, you’re living in TODAY, and at the rate you’re going, you’ll never really relax and ENJOY this time of your life. The kids will never be this age. Your business will never be at this stage.
I get it, because I used to get caught in this ALL the time, myself! Although I can now settle down when I notice it happening, I am NOT immune to getting caught, still, though. Today is a perfect example: I leave tomorrow for a conference, to give a presentation in a couple days, so I’ve been trying to spend a LOT of time practicing, so the audience has the best experience possible. But we’re also in the process of buying a house. For anyone who has done THAT lately, let me tell you; the papers and questions and answers are ENDLESS! Add to that just the usual aspects of running a business, offering a webinar in the middle of it, meeting with my team to work on upcoming projects, getting new web pages up and working right, adding a new coach to the company and getting her all set up. Oh, and writing the blogs and newsletters, etc. Etc, etc, etc.
So, as you can see, I DO get it! Continue reading
Did you know that according to a 2012 online study that our attention span today is eight seconds?? But that same online study found that 17% of all people who come to your site stay less than FOUR seconds?
But get this (and WHO studies such things?) a goldfish has the attention span of NINE minutes!
Hm; something is very wrong, here. Continue reading
What do you do when you want something, or want to do something, yet it’s out of your comfort zone? Do you go for it, or do you hold back, because of fear, telling yourself you’re being practical?
You know; it’s hiring an expensive web designer or marketing expert. Or maybe it’s quitting your job to start your wellness or nutrition business. It could even be taking the trip of a lifetime that you don’t feel you can afford. Continue reading
In the 14th century, a tinker was someone who traveled from town to town, fixing and mending machines and parts. Later it became a verb to describe the thing you do in the garage. Even the Merriam-Webster dictionary uses the example of tinkering in the garage. Now it is the thing you do to land a new career. Continue reading
Have you ever done this: You look at your LONG list of things to do, and tell yourself, “I’ll do that later“…. to just about all of it? You open email and then check social media and decide to research, well, how to get more done! Procrastination should be the middle name of, well, just about all of us!
Are you laughing yet, because this struck a nerve?
When I buckle down and get things done that I don’t really want to do, yet KNOW they need to be done, I am just amazed at what I can accomplish! In fact, I just found this quote in my Arizona Highways Magazine: “If we all did the things that we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves,” by Thomas Edison. Continue reading
