A confession about my business

Today’s update is for those of you who either have or want to have your own business. If that is not you, please consider forwarding this information to an aspiring heart-centered entrepreneur.

One thing I have not talked much about publicly are the mistakes I made early in my business that cost me time and money. But perhaps the most painful cost was that for years I felt like I was not making the impact I wanted to make. There were so many people I wanted to serve; yet I did not know how to reach them. I also was working a LOT of hours and had no clue how to use the internet to grow my business.

For years I felt like I was throwing noodles against the wall to see what stuck. I felt overwhelmed with all the business building information out there. I spent thousands on website designers only to end up with a “pretty” website that not many people were coming to. I did not know how to take my message to the next level and, quite frankly, was intimidated by marketing. And I definitely did not know how to make money online.

Can you relate to any of this?

Whether you are just starting a business of your own or you’ve been in business for a while, are you feeling the pain of not living into your FULL potential?

Do you desire to have a heart-centered business, be it a product or service, that also affords you with freedom?

If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, then you are going to love getting to know an incredible teacher and extraordinary entrepreneur named Marie Forleo.

Each year Marie teaches an online program called “B-School.” B-School is the world’s first online business school for modern entrepreneurs. This curriculum based training program teaches smart, effective and classy online marketing strategies to business owners who want more sales and more impact from their online presence.

As part of the B-School launch, Marie is releasing three FREE very content rich videos (each is 25-30 min) that I HIGHLY encourage you to watch – and take lots of notes. Check out the first one here.

Ever feel anxious?

Anxiety is hands down the number one feeling people share with me they suffer from. We live in such a busy-busy world with constant overstimulation and expectations that it’s no wonder so many people are anxious!

So is the solution taking a vacation? Or meditating? Or more sleep?

Not necessarily (although all those things help). Often times the cure for anxiety can be found in identifying how it actually serves us. Now you may be thinking, “How in the world is my anxiety good for me?” Well chances are you developed the habit of feeling anxious because of something that happened in your past.

This was the case for Nicole, my caller on my podcast. She had suffered from deep-seated anxiety for many years, but during our session we uncovered a significant event that was the key to unlocking how she was using anxiety to protect herself.

Go here to listen and learn how to free yourself from anxiety.

I invite you to consider:

• Do you suffer from anxiety? Is there something you would like to be free of?
• Whenever you try anything new, does it come with a lot of fear?
• Do you prefer control over uncertainty?
• Did something happen in your past that might still be impacting you, but you are not sure what to do about it?

If you resonate with these questions don’t miss episode 19.
