Plan D ~ Entrepreneur’s Disaster Day

Hello all, You've heard of moving on to Plan B, right? Well, the past few days, I've “one upped” myself and moved right on past Plan B and Plan C to the mystery of Plan D! Go ahead! You can chuckle under your breath or “Laugh Out Loud” if you must. I get it! In fact, if I were the reader instead of the writer, I probably would too. The thing is, as an entrepreneur you are going to just have some days that happen like this too! There will be some days where Plan A, Plan B, and Plan […]

Do Or Die Challenge, Entrepreneurs ~ Part 2

So, now for part 2 of the Do Or Die Challenge we entrepreneurs were given in Montego Bay. You know they say that people are more afraid of public speaking than of death and I reckon I was scared just about to death. Oh, I was doing just fine heading up to the front. But I was at the head of the line, you see. So I didn't see anyone else having their computers or notes or anything taken away from them before it happened to me. After taking my computer, the emcee was so reassuring. “All you need to […]

Do Or Die Challenge, Entrepreneurs

Hey there, About 5 weeks ago, I was on stage speaking to somewhere between 70 and 100 people, extemporaneously. It was sort of a do or die challenge thrown out to us. Now for you “big word haters” out there, the definition: Extemporaneously definition = done, spoken, performed, etc., without special advance preparation; impromptu: an extemporaneous speech. I had been on stage twice earlier in the 10 day Mastermind. Once I was reading an email I was sending to my list. The second time, I was on stage to video another attendee's coaching session with our very own online multi millionaire superstar, […]

Entrepreneurs And Chickens

Hey there, I was watching my 5 hens yesterday running around the yard after bolting out of the door of their pen, desperate to get out and scratch and peck in the leaves along the edges of the yard. You see, that is what they love to do ~ scratch and peck. The thing is that they are flock birds, mostly. You see, if one hen finds something interesting, her four sisters run after her wanting some of the action if it turns out to be something special. She might just be checking something out and it might be nothing much, […]

3 Perks Of An Encore Career As An Entrepreneur

Hey there, There are many perks to owning one's own business. People my age, baby boomers and grandparents in particular, love the lifestyle freedom that owning their own business affords them. My closest colleagues in this business system love the freedom of being able to work on their business anywhere in the world, literally! We can pick up and travel to visit with grandchildren, or just to enjoy other locations and cultures, or to attend a business Mastermind in some beautiful tropical location and take our business with us on the go. We can work this business anywhere there is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Encore Career Entrepreneur! How Ever Did I Get Here?

So, How Ever Did I Get Here? Now, there's a question! You see all I ever wanted was to be was a nurse (since age 4 when I had my appendix taken out and played “Nursing School” down the hall from my room in Pediatrics) and a mother (of 5, according to my Mom). I'm a very lucky girl, you see, because both of those dreams came true. However, I didn't exactly take the “fast track” to fulfillment of my dreams. It was more like a long, winding detour that got me there in the end. Oh well, you know […]
