Women Entrepreneurs: Where is your power coming from? (Read Time: 3 min.)

Unsplash 4Power is within you.   Every fiber of your being, every thought that you think, every breath that you inhale and exhale, it’s filled with power…

So, why are so many women entrepreneurs still playing small in the world?

Why are we waiting for our turn to lean in or our opportunity to stand out?

I’m still seeing far too many women in business catering to what they think other people want from them, waiting in the wings because they don’t feel good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, thin enough or experienced enough…

If only they knew…

In today’s She Runs The Show episode, I talk about where your power is and isn’t coming from… and how to reclaim it…  Check out Episode #41                –>HERE<–

3 Ways to Redefine Rest (Read Time: 3 min.)

Woman sleeping on sofaThe last week has been challenging… Did I say CHALLENGING?  Between going on a nutrition cleanse and starting a new round of fertility treatments, my gung-ho, 24/7 entrepreneurial efforts were completely thwarted.  Fast forward to today, Sunday, and it’s a struggle writing this blog post… which has led me to two epiphanies:

1) I don’t do REST well.

2) I don’t know how to feel like an entrepreneur when rest is my only option.

And I’m sure I’m not the only one… As women entrepreneurs with so many responsibilities, it can be so easy to work too much and rest too little… until our bodies force us to do so and, by then, it’s too late to create harmony between work and rest; rest has become doctor’s orders.  So I’m using this new rest lesson to learn how to redefine rest.

Here are 3 ways I’m redefining rest:

1) Rest is a choice I can make (rather than an ultimatum I have to take).

2) Rest IS temporary.  This is a critical one for me.  Every time my body demands rest, I worry that the specific demand will become a permanent requirement.  It’s hard to invite over a guest you don’t think will leave.  I’m working on this one.

3) Rest is necessary to success.  Action feels and looks better.  It more logically fits into the timeline of success.  However, there’s a time for work and a time for rest.  I’m still learning how to fit rest into the equation.

At the end of the day, the ability to rest is a personal choice that we, as women entrepreneurs, can make.  The first way to choose rest comes in redefining how we see, understand and feel about rest.  I’m working on it…

I’d love to hear from you.

What’s your take on rest?

Like it, love it or wish you didn’t need it?

How have you (or are you) changing your perception of rest?

 

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Entrepreneurs (Read Time: 3 min.)

Insta 6In life and business, it’s so easy to get caught up in the comparison trap.

For example, I’m a coach, an author, and a Fear-To-Fuel expert.  If I spent my time looking at the thousands of certified coaches, Kindle book authors, and experts teaching online courses on how to overcome fear, I’d certainly call it quits and stop running my business.  What a way to extinguish a dream!

And, yet, far too many of us do exactly that.  Instead of using our social media time to connect and collaborate, we focus on what other people in our field are doing… and then the inner critic rages at us about how we can’t possibly get to that level with “those” super stars.

It’s time to get over that!

In this episode of the She Runs The Show podcast, I talk about:

  1. The REAL reason the comparison switch gets flipped in your life
  2. Why no 2 businesses or brands are the same in ANY way
  3. What writers understand about authentic expression that you absolutely need to get
  4. How to get out of the comparison trap
  5. 3 steps to using your IQ (Individual Qualities) to create massive growth in your business

What’s Numerology Got to Do With Your Business? EVERYTHING… (Read Time: 2 min.)

NumbersNumerology, or the science of divining information about life through numbers, is a science that is over 4,000 years old!  Here’s how it works:

The day, date, and time you were born are no accident.  Numbers vibrate throughout the Universe and, when you were born, you were born at a certain numerical vibration and frequency.  This is also felt in the name you were given at birth (and your current name if you’ve married or changed your name).  All in all, your numerological chart tells you a number of things:

1) Who you are

2) What your called to fulfill in your life in order to be happy

3) Who you are AND are not compatible with in terms of relationship (both professional and personal)

4) How to change the vibration of your space, place, or relationships to better align with your numbers

It’s fascinating stuff!

Here’s what’s more fascinating:

IT’S TRUE! 

Crazy?  Weird?  Foo Foo?  Absolutely!

But all you have to do is run your numbers and the numbers of those around you and what you quickly discover is this:

Numbers don’t lie… In business or Numerology.

So how do you use numerology in your life and business?
