Using Your Fear As Fuel

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Most of us are taught that being a strong, successful person means that you don’t entertain fear and you certainly don’t show it. Probably because wallowing in it can be draining and can rob us of our joy, self confidence, energy and our power. I know this to be true as I lived with anxiety (fear) for the first 30+ years of my life. I did not know it was my normal state until I experienced NOT having it for…

Confessions Of A Reformed DIY’er

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success, Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s in the midst of the women’s liberation movement. Being a strong, independent woman meant I could do whatever a man could: change my own flat tire, support myself financially, be the CEO of my own business, paint my walls… I could “do it myself”. I remember feeling such pride when a male friend told me one day “Helen, you’re a better man than most men I know!”. (I cringe now when I…

A Healing Perspective

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I was speaking with a client the other day about her long term goals for her business. When it came to the subject of her retirement, her whole energy froze. She said, “Um, what retirement fund?” I could feel her energy sinking fast as shame rose to the surface. I told her: “Stop worrying about having a retirement fund.” Angry now, she said “What do you mean stop worrying! At the rate I’m going I’ll be working until I’m 99!”…

The Gift of Imperfection

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I often say “Business is just another path of Soul growth”. This is because, in my own journey to building 3 successful businesses and having a life I love to wake up to everyday, I have discovered it’s more about who you become in the process. It’s about being who you need to BE. So you can do what you need to DO. And have what you want to HAVE. More than anything, it’s a journey of self acceptance. Learning to love…

Success Is Relative

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

It’s 98 degrees on a hot summer day. My box of 36 Hershey bars won’t last long in this heat. The clock is ticking. I have 2 hours to sell them all and get some lunch before being back at my sales seminar. I duck into the nearest business place and break out my winning smile. “Can I interest you ladies in a great deal in some candy today?” Their interested is peaked and I continue quickly. “I’ll give you…

The Power of A Great Question

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | No Comments

A few weeks ago I was completing the intake form for my new coach. One of the questions asked: “Where are you consistently letting your clients down?”. My instinctive response was a defensive, indignant “I’m NOT!”. (Lol!)   Noticing my rapid and reactive response, I took a breath and asked myself: “If you were, where would that be?”.  I suddenly remembered a comment a private client had made about 6 months earlier – that she wished I had a mastermind…

Creating Joyful Success

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | No Comments

How do you define Success? What does it look like for you? A 6 or 7 figure business? A beautiful home? High end car? Gorgeous, loving, attentive, wealthy life partner or spouse in your bed? Beautiful, healthy children? Financial and personal freedom? However you choose to define success, getting clear on what you desire is a key part of achieving it. Taking the time to get clear on what you want to achieve, then making a plan for how you…

Business As A Path Of Personal Growth: Lessons learned on the Journey to Success

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | 2 Comments

July 2011, Dallas Texas. I’m walking aimlessly around the exhibit hall at the Ewomen Conference in tears, feeling confused and dejected…like a complete failure.    I had been working with a mentor since February that year, part of a high level business coaching program, in an effort to get my coaching business off the ground. I had never invested in myself on that level before. I had never had a business coach before.   It had been 5 months and…

The Cure For Procrastination

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | 4 Comments

“Procrastination is the biggest thief of time” I don’t know who said that (other than my Mother who said it to me … a lot!) 🙂 For many years I was plagued by procrastination and that saying would ring in my head like a loud (and annoying) church bell when you’re trying to sleep in on a sunday morning! It was a real problem for me, holding me back from achieving my goals and creating discomfort with myself. It was fodder…

Embracing Opportunities

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care | No Comments

Part of living beyond struggle and limitation is that you begin to have an awareness of opportunities everywhere and receive them. The dictionary defines an opportunity as: 1- an appropriate or favorable time or occasion 2- a situation or occasion favorable for the attainment of a goal 3- a good position, chance or prospect, as for advancement or success. When we look at the world through the lens of our limitations (conditioning) we tend to limit what we would consider…
