Entrepreneur Celebrates 5 Figure Day

Hey there, Your encore career entrepreneur is celebrating her first 5 figure month (not bad for a “hatchling”). In fact this celebration is about an epic 5 figure DAY! Now that is something to celebrate and to shout from the rooftops. So, I’ll keep this one short and instead of writing a longer email, I’ll let you listen to an “excerpt” from my story: Excited about having found a system that works if you work it and even works for you while you are sleeping!

Confessions Of An Entrepreneur

Hey there, They say that confession is good for the soul. I wanted to share some true confessions and the published story of one of my fellow entrepreneurs. True confession: I LOVE being an entrepreneur, love the creativity of it, love learning new things every day, trying new things, love building my days around the natural energy I have, love feeling that I can still help others, love that so many of my gifts and my skill set are transferable to my new venture, and that my income increases as I increase the value I share with others. I love […]

Entrepreneurs, Heat Up Or Cool Down?

So Entrepreneurs, do you need to heat up or cool down. I’m here to tell me that I need to heat up AND cool down. We are having a rather brutal heat spell here in northern New Jersey, so it is incredibly important to stay hydrated and, as much as is possible, to cool down. Today was good for nothing more than moving from a paddle fan cooled house to an air conditioned car, spending as little time as possible out of doors in the sun. So I clearly need lots of cooling down as far as my environment. On the other hand, […]

Entrepreneurs, Who Do You Spend The Most Time With?

Hey there, Entrepreneurs and Wannabe’s, They say that we become like the five people with whom we spend the most time. I’ve had very good reasons to consider that maxim lately, so I’ve given it a bit of thought. But this isn’t about me. It’s about you! Who are the five people with whom you spend the most time and are they your mentors or role models? Are they people that you admire and wish to learn from along the way? The past year has given me the opportunity to stretch myself, to meet many new people and to learn […]

The Entrepreneur Mind

Good morning, afternoon, or evening, Entrepreneurs. I’m musing today about the Entrepreneur Mind. It may go without saying that entrepreneurs probably are unusual thinkers, most likely walk to the beat of a different drummer, and may not take kindly to being directed or “bossed around” by self appointed or company appointed authorities. There is something else though! Entrepreneurs think about what they want, even if it is something that might be challenging for them to have or experience. Entrepreneurs are generally self motivated, or at least expert in devising ways to motivate themselves. They may or may not be “driven” […]

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent Listen (Listening is SO important) Accept what is! (Okay, you don’t have to love it, but it really does help if you accept what is actually happening!) Don’t take things personally! (Most of the time, it really is NOT personal at all and taking it personally keeps us locked into a negative feedback loop that helps no one, especially us.) It is really up to us to figure out who we are at our core and accept that, and then figure out how to get that message out there to the people who […]

Ten Rules For Success From A Superstar

So, I was listening to a Gary Vee YouTube talk. I enjoy him. He’s obviously VERY smart and kind of a wise guy too, and he’s funny. His language is a little over the top for me, so I’ll try to distill this without all the “F” words he uses when he talks and get the meat of the ideas for you. Gary Vaynerchuk’s 10 rules for success: Bet on your strengths and don’t bother at all about what you are not good at. Focus on what you are good at and put all of your time, effort, energy, and […]

Persistence And Little Baby Steps

Persistence And Little Tiny Baby Steps Sometimes all the persistence one can muster is to take a few little tiny baby steps at the close of a day that has seemed very long in many ways. Don’t underestimate the courage that this requires! If today is this kind of a day for you, then give yourself proper credit for extending yourself enough for those little tiny baby steps that you are able to take. Some days are just like that and I hope to encourage you to carry on, doing even just that one simple thing that you are able […]

Starting Where You Are

Starting Where You Are… So, I’ve been thinking about starting where you are. It sounds terribly silly, doesn’t it? I mean, let’s be real! Where else can you possibly start? The thing is that most of us actually do try to start somewhere else instead. We try to start “ahead of ourselves” which inevitably leads to frustration. First we need to know where we are now, and we need to know WHO we are now. There is something magical about this whole equation once we get it going. Seeing clearly the difference between where we are now and who we […]
