When Things Fall Apart

Sometimes it’s hard to have perspective when things around you feel like they’re falling apart. Your best laid plans for work and life seem to be slowly unraveling, and your world feels topsy-turvy. What to do? Breathe. Breathe because your body needs oxygen. Breathe because you need the lightness that air brings. Breathe because it’s an acknowledgment of where you are now. Breathe because it’s the start of a new beginning. It’s jarring when your world falls apart. The ground underneath you feels shaky, and you may not know what direction to go in, nor who or what to turn to. Take another breath. Feel the cleansing air and the subtle hope it carries. Notice all the...

What Do You Do When You’re Not Feeling It

What Do You Do When You’re Not Feeling It

What do you do when you’re just not feeling it? Not feeling the business love… Not feeling like your mojo’s working… Not feeling like you know what you’re doing… Not feeling like you know how to keep going… Not feeling like you’ve got any originality left in you… What do you do?   You keep going anyway.   You keep going because you’re a trained professional and your business and clients need you. You keep going because your family is counting on you and you don’t want to let them down. You keep going because you’re on autopilot and you don’t know how to *not* keep going.   There’s a nuance to keeping going, though, that may be an advanced maneuver for...

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...

How Do You Get Things Done?

How Do You Get Things Done?

How do you get things done? Do you feel you’re an achiever who enjoys checking off the boxes? Do you see yourself as more laid back, getting to things whenever you can? Whatever your style, the truth is, if you’re in business for yourself, you need to get things done, and chances are, no one else will jump in to save the day. Which begs the question: How do you do things most easily and best suited to you?   What’s your style? In working with clients, I see two typical categories of doers: 1) Those who love making a list and working through it, some going so far as drawing their own little check boxes next to each to do item in a notebook, or 2) others who take a...

Absolution

Absolution

Recommended listening while reading this article: Glenn Gould plays Georges Bizet Nocturne in D major As the end of the year approaches, there is much to do about getting things wrapped up in 2015 (finish the year strong!), setting New Year’s resolutions (2016 is going to be the year I go to the gym!), and an overall sense of movement or rushing (holiday obligations!). This is ironic, seasonally-speaking, as this is the time of year when things slow down: leaves fall from the trees, bears hibernate, ice slows the flow of the stream. What would it be like if you took a different, gentler approach to year’s end? Freedom from the rushing and the frantic-ness. From email...

Keeping Your Pipeline Full

Posted by on in Blog, Get Clients Now!, How much is enough | 0 comments

  If you’ve been in business for any length of time, you’re likely familiar with the phrase “filling the pipeline”. Or in other words, making sure you’ve got enough potential people interested in your services to keep your business going. As important as this is, and as much sense as it makes, it’s amazing how often it doesn’t happen.   Let me give you an example. I have a colleague we’ll call Joe. He’s a coach and consultant in corporations, an excellent speaker, master networker, and has a real fireball personality. It seems he knows everyone on the planet and they all know what he does, and as a result he gets a lot of business. When we talked a while back...
