You, You Can Stay

You, You Can Stay

I heard a story on the This American Life podcast about a man waiting on a subway platform, and in the crowd was another man walking up to people, saying, “You’re In. You’re Out. You, you can stay. You — gotta go.” The story teller found himself secretly wanting to be picked to stay, which was odd since what the man was doing was completely arbitrary. I love this story because it reminds me of what we do to ourselves, how we consciously (or unconsciously) choose people in our lives. This applies to people in all areas of your life: friends and family, as well as clients and business associates. You can decide: You, you can stay. You, you gotta go.  ...

It’s Going to Be OK

Do you ever feel like where you’re headed doesn’t make sense? Or that you have something to convey, yet you’re having a hard time getting your point across? Or maybe you’re following the energy, going where it leads you, and it’s not going in a straight line and you find yourself thinking, what the hell…? My coach, friend and mentor, Andrea Lee, turned me on to a video some years ago that I think you’ll appreciate: Imagination Truth is, this election cycle has been hard for me; all the intense negativity and finger pointing have got me down. I put on my energetic seat belt, strapped myself in for the bumpy ride and have been...

What Do You Want in Your Life?

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. – The Spice Girls I was talking with a good friend and business colleague over dinner recently about being busy:  She has *no* free time (a hubby, two kids, a house, three cats, her own biz to run, schedules to manage, dishes to do); my time is also busy in a sort-of opposite way (I live alone with my cat and dog and also run my own biz, which means everything that happens around the house and in my biz / life is up to me to do). She and I both feel pinched for time and were looking around for some space, literally and mentally, from those things that are required just to keep life and business running on a...

Are you in the mood to market your business?

There you sit: you know you need to do something to get the word out about your business and get the clients flowing in, yet you’re not in the mood. In fact, you’re mostly never in the mood to do marketing. The problem is, no marketing = no clients = no money = no impact with the work you’re here to bring to the world, which is a sad state to be in. “Even if you don’t feel like sitting down to write or working on that big proposal, or whatever it is, just show up anyhow and the rest will follow.” – Ayana Mathis Getting in the mood to market is a mind shift, one you can bring on yourself. Consider these tactics when you’re just not feelin’ it: 1....

Using your Super Powers is good for you, good for your business, and super fun.   There are two main ways to discover your Super Powers: objectively, using external assessments, which is explored in part 2 of this series (read it here https://kristinecarey.com/discovering-your-super-powers-objectively/), and subjectively, introspective explorations, which is today’s topic.   Below are three of my favorite ways to look into yourself and learn about your Super Powers.   Something to note: Most of the suggestions below will work best if they’re done someplace other than...
