Coaching Week: Lack confidence? Grow Anyway! (Outside-in Approach)

If you struggle with confidence and are spinning your wheels in your business, try this unconventional approach to getting unstuck!

How You’re (unintentionally) Limiting Your Impact

"I’m a coach because I want to make a positive impact.” I’ve heard this countless times and it always makes me smile. Probably because impact is one of my top core values, too! The sneaky thing I notice is that coaches unintentionally limit their impact in the world. Because while coaches see the difference they make when working directly with...

3 Mistakes I Made Speaking In-person

Don’t Pick a Niche (what to do instead to get clients faster)

Recently I shared that I am committing to the niche of Coaches, but for 12 years, I didn’t have a niche and brought my business to multiple 6-figures anyway! So if you’re stressing out because marketing gurus are insisting you niche or perish, take a breath. Let me share when NOT to pick a niche, why this is so important...

I’m Calling Dibs on Coaches

For years I've been hired primarily by coaches and I love it. But I've resisted choosing them as a niche because I LOATHE most of the marketing that targets coaches. I didn't want to be lumped into that icky bucket of hype-sters. On January 5th I realized two things: 1. Worrying about what people will think of me is about...

Over the holidays, I made my 2023 plans and they were instantly put to the test after two nights of insomnia. Here's what I'm doing to fix it.  

Why I Burned All My Appreciation Letters.

I have a jar where I keep notes of appreciation from clients, colleagues, and organizations. At the end of 2022, it was so full that I couldn’t fit one more in. I was clinging to them. Hoarding appreciation. With no room to let more in. And while I logically understand that gratitude is infinite and a crammed jar of notes...

Smoking at McDonald’s (a holiday story)

It’s a little beat up, but this is my favorite Christmas tree ornament. I love this for so many reasons. And my reasons have changed over the years.
