Have Any Ideas?

Jan 08, 2019

Where are my visionaries out there?

How many ideas do you have in the notes app on your phone that have never seen the light of day? How many ideas have you kept from the world because you haven’t really gone for it yet?

Maybe it’s just a new offer, but one that really lights you up. Or a brand new business idea. Or a new arm to your existing business. Or a complete change to your way of life, doing exactly what you want to do.

That used to be me. 2018 was the year that I actually picked ONE idea, ran with it and it has completely changed my life. 

But that used to be me. I got way into the ‘invention convention’ in 7th grade, my project consisted of welding together an alarm clock and a tape recorder (obviously this was before voice notes and iphones) so that when you had ideas at night, you could record them into the tape recorder and when the alarm went off in the morning it would play back the recording to you. 

I had sticky notes in my...

Perfection, Fear & A Happy New Year

Jan 01, 2019

It's here! Another new year, a fresh start. Have anything you were waiting to release until today, the first day of 2019?

If you're either a self proclaimed or peer proclaimed 'high achiever' like me, you have probably suffered at some point with perfectionism. In fact, you may have even used it as a 'weakness' for a job interview thinking that it was a cleverly disguised strength. 

In the corporate world you were probably right, but in the realm of running a business, perfectionism is just another word for procrastination, and I'm going to just say it, fear. I'm saying this purely because I am so very guilty of it. 

When we are in preparation, consuming, learning and perfection mode, we can't fail. There is no one to judge you, it's SAFE, so a lot of us get stuck here. We convince ourselves that we need to learn more, know more, become a better expert before we can actually serve anyone, let alone sell anything. 

We negotiate with our minds,...

How My Corporate Background was Keeping Me Stuck

Dec 18, 2018

Coming from a corporate background I've found that a lot of things I was trained to do in my career are no longer serving me now that I've made the transition into the glamorous life of entrepreneurship.

I want to share my top three in the hopes that some of these may resonate with you. Because once we become aware of limiting beliefs and behavior patterns that are no longer serving us, it is so much easier to change them:

1) We were told to fill the gaps where we had weaknesses rather than encouraged to play to our strengths. Every opportunity seemed like another chance to make you a more 'well rounded employee'.

When you own a business the mentality is so different. You know that your strengths are what set you apart and you can outsource any weaknesses. As business owners we don't need to learn everything, and if we try we are wasting precious time, energy and resources.

I would catch myself trying to learn something new that I hated, a couple hours into it I would...

How to Manifest

Nov 13, 2018

Getting into this whole manifestation thing? 

I am going to make this SUPER simple. How the heck do you manifest things or take things that you want in your mind and have them come into your physical reality. 

Last week, we talked about WHAT manifestation is. Today I want to talk about HOW. 

The universe takes you SUPER literally, which can be a problem because most people think about what they DON'T want versus what they do want. 

An example of this is brought to you by my best friend, she is getting married next fall. During her work outs she does one minute planks. As she holds the position she repeats over and over to herself; 'If I can hold this it won't rain on my wedding day'.

What we have since discussed, is that your subconscious does not understand negatives. So what her subconscious hears when she is saying that to herself over and over is  "rain on my wedding day".

Won't, don't, can't, doesn't, not - all negative words that the...

Manifestation 101... for the Skeptic

Nov 06, 2018

I recently turned a corner when it comes to manifestation. As in, I have become kind of obsessed with it, and even if it's a placebo situation I am totally okay with it. 

Have you heard of it? 

Do you practice it? 

Manifestation basically means that something that was once a part of your imagination becomes actualized into your physical reality. Everything starts as an idea before it is built. Kind of like that saying "if you believe it, you can achieve it."

Everything in your reality has been created from ideas, or thoughts. 

When you think a thought enough, it becomes a subconscious belief. And 95% of the thoughts you think per day are subconscious thoughts. Those beliefs become stories that you tell yourself, and when you tell yourself that same story long enough it becomes your identity. Your identity determines the actions that you take and shapes your reality or your environment.

You may begin to see here how these thoughts can be positive or...

Your Client Attraction Strategy

Oct 09, 2018

What is the typical response that you have when someone is chasing you…?

You run.

It’s human nature, so why when we talk about sales and marketing in our business do we constantly find ourselves pursuing clients and having them RUN away from us?

Wouldn’t you rather have your clients come to you, versus have them running away screaming?

This is why you need a client attraction strategy. And funnily enough this strategy looks a lot like offering up VALUE for your potential customers. FOR FREE.

Really SERVING them and giving them a taste of what it is like to work with you.

When I first started my business, I was doing what all of the experts said to do when you have an online business to get clients. I was hosting webinars that gave frameworks and tidbits of information, but not really sharing my zone of genius in a way that made my customers realize what it would be like to work with me.  

I found that a majority of my clients (80%) were...

Take Care of Yourself

Oct 02, 2018

I've recently joined a bunch of Facebook groups in a similar space to the one I operate in. Business owners are posting in these groups bragging about how many hours per day they work, trying to one up each other like it is something to be proud of.

But, those are the same business owners who eventually post about how sick, burnt out or tired they are. 

Stress and burn out are REAL. If we put our minds and bodies under constant stress and work, they will revolt. Bodies do it all the time. Chances are, if you are reading this, you are in your business for the long haul...

And we all know from the children's story that slow and steady wins the race. 

Then there is the 'self care' crowd, discussing daily massages, baths, candles, crystals and more.

To me, self care just means... taking care of yourself. Doing what you need to do in order to show up as the best version of yourself. When you run a business there can be such a blurry line between life and work.

What's Your End Game?

Sep 25, 2018

Anyone else hearing Taylor Swift's 'End Game' in their head with that title..? No, just me... ok! Down to business. 

If you’re anything like me, you spend your days building, growing, and scaling your business. But have you ever asked yourself what your business will look like when it’s ‘done’?

In a perfect world, how many clients would you have?

What kind of services do you provide?

How many employees do you have?

How much money are you making?

What kind of lifestyle do you have?

If you haven’t done this exercise yet, take a moment to do so. As Steven Covey said in '7 Habits of Highly Effective People',  "begin with the end in mind". If you know what you are trying to build it creates a great filter for any new products, ideas, hires, etc.

You’ll become more focused on building the business you actually want versus being distracted by what others in the space are doing.

They have a different endgame.

For example, if you know...

Your Perfect Week & An Invitation

Sep 18, 2018

What if I told you that a little structure could bring A LOT more freedom into your life and by freedom, I mean time. If you are like most entrepreneurs you may be a little hesitant... but by structuring your week and creating boundaries between work and life, focusing on the tasks that make the biggest impact in your business, and following the rules you have set out for yourself you can actually reduce the amount of time you’re working AND get more things accomplished.

If you’d rather watch a video on this topic check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/CreatedFutureAcademy/videos/314798442633885/

What you want, versus what you say you want...

I used to say that I wanted to learn to speak french, but speaking french never ended up on my calendar.. So guess what? I never learned French. It was something that I said I wanted, but it wasn’t important enough to me to actually do it. What ‘French’ do you have in your life and business? If it really is...

Using your strengths in your business

Sep 11, 2018


Today I want to touch on the business you are building and if it is aligned with YOU and what you are good at. I see a lot of entrepreneurs who are modeling what the big names in their space are doing. But what you don't see is that there is a ton of stuff going on behind the scenes of that persons business.  Including the type of business that entrepreneur is striving for (their vision) and what their strengths are that are making that business what it is.

Our strengths can sometimes be really hard to put into words, and for me it was actually hard to recognize that things that I did were my strengths.

Using the really common metaphor... a fish can’t tell they are in water. In this case, that means that sometimes when you are really good at things, you just kind of assume that other people are also good at those things.

 If you are struggling with Identifying which strengths you have and how you can create a business to support that there are a couple of...
