If you have a boutique biz, this is the perfect time of year to kick it into high gear - especially if you’ve been feeling stuck, stagnant, under earning or suddenly your back is really against the wall! Here are a few things that I have found work well and work fast when you need … oh, well… instant results!

1. Work ONLY for MONEY $$. This may sound basic, but it’s easy to get lost in a long list of “to-do’s”. Let go of growing your list, improving…

5 Steps to Getting More Clients

This is the woe of every new entrepreneur or small business, “How do I get more clients?” When I first started out in business this was really all that was on my mind. I knew that I was doing something incredible, I just needed people to share it with! I did a ton of networking, some internet advertising, and a lot of praying and hoping that somehow people would “find me”. What I didn’t have was a reliable plan of action for how to go about this easily and effectively. This left me feeling…

How To Create a Business Card that Gets You Clients

Business cards are underestimated as a marketing tool, yet it’s one of the things that we use most often in promoting our businesses. Your business card should be given careful consideration; something that someone will look at and get a very good idea not only of what you do, but what you can do for them.

So often we treat our business cards as only a way to hand out our phone number and , but that’s really a missed opportunity, and not the best use of your marketing dollars. You’ve…

Money Power & You

money



Money. It’s never a neutral topic, whether you have a lot of it, or a little. Whether you have healthy , or are heavily in debt, money, in our society holds an emotional charge. The reason isn’t really money itself, it’s what it means to the quality of our lives. As the saying goes, “money can’t buy you love”,…

New Daily Habits: 30 Days to Super Success

Habits. We’ve all got some great ones and some really bad ones. The ability to quickly and consistently create new habits is a major factor in anyone’s success.

Studies and research has found that it takes us 21-40 days of consistent, daily action to create a new habit, and a little longer if we are not taking daily action. When setting a new goal or target, personally or professionally, one of the easiest ways to reach it, is to set a new habit. Here are some examples:…

Putting a Friendlier Face on Marketing

Marketing. Not usually the favourite subject for entrepreneurs and other creative types. But it’s the lifeblood of your business, and essentially, your livelihood. Marketing is what draws people to you, gets the word out, brings in contacts and possible partners, and is largely responsible for your income. So why do we tend to resist it so much?

Most of us went into business or choose to work freelance because we love what we’re doing, and also value time freedom. So who wants to be…

You Can Do it! Don’t Quit!

When “life happens” (and I know a thing or two about life happening!) it can be tempting to throw in the towel; back down, or just plain give up. This can show up in many forms. It may look like “settling”, pretending it was never really that important, or simply quietly burying a dream. Often times all you really need is a little retreat to rest and regroup. But ironically it’s at the moment of defeat, or after a big let down, that we feel the least able to let…

3 Keys to Easier Cash Flow

Any of you who know me, have heard me say this dozens of times,”businesses run on cash, not just hard work and enthusiasm.” But as an entrepreneur, it’s easy to forget that. You get pulled in so many different ; newsletters, blogs, videos, new marketing gimmicks, fancy new products … well, you get the idea. So if cash is King or Queen in business-land, you need to be crystal clear on where you’re spending your time and your energy to maximize your impact so you can bring in more of that all…

Yin and Yang for Success

In Chinese philosophy, there is the concept we know as yin and yang. Very simply put, it’s the idea that opposites only exist in relation to each other. The outer circle represents “everything”, while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies. Notice, they are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other.

Here in the West we often think of Yin and Yang as…

Charging What You Are Worth

Two of the problems that I see many entrepreneurs facing is how to set their prices, and how to convey to potential clients or customers what is the value in working with you, buying your product, or using your services. This is most often because you’re not clear on it, or 100% convinced of it yourself. This lack of clarity undermines your confidence and can lead to behaviors that sabotage your business instead of building it if you try to compensate by over delivering. This may show up as…

Stress, in addition to being itself and the result of itself,
