Don’t make the same mistake I made

Confession: I made a lot of mistakes 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 completely 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 feeling successful and profitable?

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 “non-douchy” 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.  I sent a link to the first one last week, here is your link to Video #2.

B-School Video

In this video Marie lasers in on the excuses that stop most entrepreneurs and teaches you what it takes to reach and make millions selling your products and services online.

I’m passionate about you viewing these videos and considering investing in YOURSELF by investing in B-school.  I am so passionate about it that I am a partner for the program and will be offering you special support if you enroll through my partner link (exciting details to come about how you can be part of a free live mastermind with me in San Diego so stay tuned!).

For now, the most important thing is that you watch the video, check out the B-school site and feel into whether this program is a fit for you.  Again here is the link.

To your success!!

I hated having a boss

This week I moved out of Los Angeles down to San Diego. After 16 years of being in the city of angels it has been a big transition, which has inspired a lot of reflection.

One of the things I have been reflecting on is my career journey. I moved to LA with huge dreams of making it big time in Hollywood. And I was well on my way there by 25 when I was promoted to be a Television Literary agent. On the outside I was incredibly successful but on the inside I was miserable.

Each week I got the Sunday night blues. I went to work with knots in my stomach both from the stress of the job and the stress of feeling like I was not doing what I was “supposed” to be doing.  I lived for the weekends and would come back with massive vacation or holiday hangovers just aching for more free time.

I hated the long hours. I hated having to be somewhere at certain times every day. I hated doing work that felt like it really did not make any kind of difference in the world. I also really did not like having a boss (actually multiple bosses). I dreamed of feeling free;  being my own boss; and most of all, doing something that really mattered to me.

But I had no idea how. I was scared to take off my “golden handcuffs” and leave a career that I had worked so hard to build.  The uncertainty of leaving my steady paycheck totally freaked me out.  Plus, I had no clue how to start my own business.

Eventually I got to the point where I just could not take another day doing something that I did not enjoy. So I quit. I left it all behind.

People thought I was crazy. I kind of wondered if I was crazy. Yet I could not ignore that gut feeling that something else was calling me.

You know the ending to this story, which is that today I have a business and life that I love. But you may not know all the steps that got me here – and believe me there were a lot!

I made many mistakes. I stressed about money. I was confused about how to build my business. I spent three years moonlighting at what I do now while working pay-the-bills jobs.

And you know what got me through all that?
Two things. The first was faith. I believed that the feeling I had to help others was not random. The second was taking on a learning-oriented approach to building a business. I got coaches, took courses, joined masterminds and invested in learning HOW to actually create a profitable, purposeful and sustainable business.

One of my teachers has been Marie Forleo’s B-School, which is an online business school for modern entrepreneurs. I HIGHLY recommend this program for anyone who wants to begin or grow their business and finally have the FREEDOM and IMPACT they desire.

Marie just released a FREE video training series where she shares some really awesome information. These videos will give you a taste of what B-School is all about. You’ll get to know Marie (and love her if you don’t already) as she shares her incredible story of how she has built a multi-million dollar business online with integrity.


Some of the things you will also learn are:

  • Why heart-centered people like you and me are wired for success.
  • Why waiting to uplevel your online game is a really, really bad idea.
  • What your competitive advantage is.
  • A step-by-step process to get your business up and running.

I do not want you to have an Expectation Hangover when it comes to your life’s work!!! I am a partner for B-School for because I know first-hand what Marie teaches works. I LOVE that she teaches how to be successful online without being slimly or scamy.

As a partner for B-School, I will be offering a special package that includes a way to get personalized coaching from me while you go through the program at no additional cost. I will share that opportunity with you soon so stay tuned because I’m psyched to support you!!!

For now, carve out some time, grab your notebook and go here to start learning from Marie.

With love,

p.s. I’m a proud affiliate partner of Marie Forleo’s B-School. I don’t recommend anything lightly and I fully believe in the integrity of this program.

All of my opinions are 100% my own.
