No CommentsLeave a Comment

Everyday single day, people are deciding to venture off and start their own business. People are craving more financial and personal freedom then ever before by doing something they are passionate about.

I have been have lots of discussions about this lately and finding out, that often people are putting this dream of theirs on hold because they believe it will take lots of money to start going. This however, is not entirely true. There are several things you can do right now to get your business moving forward today for very little, to no money at all.

I have come up with twelve ideas that you can start doing right now and I’m sure with a little brainstorming you can come up with even more ideas. However, these will get you moving forward now.

#1 You need your big idea – Write down your business idea and mission statement.

#2 Get your own domain name. These days hosting is incredibly cheap and can be found for five dollars a month or even less. Shop around and find a reliable host that best suits your needs.

#3 Join associates in your niche to network with. Really start getting out there and connecting with people. Not only is this one of the most important things you can start doing but it is fun too.

#4 Contact your local paper and other publications, let them know what your up to. You need to put yourself out there and start playing big.

#5 Start collecting testimonials right from the start. When clients email you praise, get permission to use it for your website, etc.

#6 Put your own name out there. It’s up to you to get out there everyday and talk about what your doing. A few ideas to get you going – newsletters, ezines, twitter, facebook, linkedIn, pinterest, online directories, and forums that are i your niche.

#7 Start building relationships. Use free online social media tools to build relationships and market yourself. With your main focus on relationship building.

#8 Look online for people hosting scholarship contests for events, seminars, and programs. Apply for them and see what happens, you have just as much chance at winning as anyone else.

#9 Write your own how-to guide or report that your niche would find extremely useful. Place it on Amazon for free and lead people back to your own website.

#10 Look on Craigslist for services or products you might need. You can find some quality people at good prices to get started. Some ideas might include – web design, virtual assistant, printing services, equipment if your a product based business.

#11 If you are in a product based business start small, with family and friends. Word of mouth spreads and is a great start for business growth. Great way to manage cost while the word is spreading.

#12 Swap out services for services. A few ideas might be web design, professional photography, PR services and legal advice. There are heaps of other businesses start out just like you that might be interested in what you have to offer. Do a little networking within your circle, you will be surprised that there is still plenty of wonderful people in the world who genuinely want to see you succeed.

So what you waiting for??

10 Ways to Beat the Isolation Blues

Productivity, Tip & Tricks

No CommentsLeave a Comment

Often when working from home or maybe you work out of your own office where human interaction is extinct, it is easy to fall into the isolation trap. From a business standpoint as well as personally. You do not have to go it alone! It is very important that you do not shut yourself off from the outside world.

Being alone all the time stifles creativity, creates loneliness that can lead to depression and all sorts of health problems.

I have put together my top 10 tricks to beat the isolation blues!

Get a mentor

Hire a personal or business coach

Have lunch or coffee with a friend or mentor

Work on a joint venture

Join a fitness club or hire a personal trainer

Get yourself an accountability partner to check in with on a daily basis

Go to networking events, seminars, workshops & join other organizations with likeminded peers

Get outside daily for some fresh air & sunshine. Even if it’s just a 10-15 minute walk.

Keep an active social life outside of your business. Go to parties and other social events, a retreat with a friend and of course family outing too.

My favorite thing to do when working from home – When you wake up in the morning, take a shower, get ready and dress like you are going to the office. Try it and you will see a HUGE shift in the way you work.

Taking action and actually doing these things will help you keep an outside perspective on life. Which in turn will help you remain creative and grow both professionally and personally.

Socialmedia and Skype are great to use when it’s impossible to get out. But nothing beats real world communication and human interaction.

My 21 Day Feminine Grace Challenge

Feminine Grace, Productivity, Tip & Tricks

No CommentsLeave a Comment

Recently, I have found myself in a state of overwhelm, information & work overload. Which in turn has caused me to be irritable, frustrated and unhappy at times. Snapping at people, not getting anything done because I am trying to get EVERYTHING done. I have been neglecting my nutrition, exercise and sleep habits as well. All these things I know already but have somehow fallen off track and not been living to my fullest potential.

Starting tomorrow, I am getting back onto the path of find and living in my true, feminine grace.

For the next 21 days, I will challenging myself to re-align into feminine grace. As we grow, sometimes we need to make shifts in our lifestyle to accommodate the changes that are happening.

To cut down on the overload, I will be greatly cutting down my computer, T.V, and iPad time.

Cutting my work schedule down to 2 half days per week so that I can fulfill previous commitments.

Will only be talking on the phone to positive friends & family. No business talk.. no texting. I think texting has become a huge crutch in the way we communicate. It does have it’s benefits but is being greatly abused. I really know and have friends that will only communicate via text. So very unhealthy. No playing silly little games on the iPhone. Huge time waster.

Television – I am not really that bad when it comes to wasting a ton of time watching T.V but I am going to cut out the thrillers and scary flicks and opt for a comedy once, twice max per week. I do not do the news at all, however this past week in Colorado has been unusual with the house down the street in Castle Rock blowing up and the seriously disturbed, child killer on the loose. I did get sucked into the news. No more news for me.

iPad – 5 minutes max per day on twitter & Facebook.

My focus for the next 21 days is to get back in alignment with my feminine grace and for each person that will have different meanings and actions to take.

For myself-
Set Intentions
Be my best self
Focus on my positive energy
Stand tall
Treat Myself Daily
Get proper sleep
Eat healthy
Quiet Time – twice daily
Read non businessy books
Listen to Positive & Motivating audios
Dance to fun, Inspirational music
Listen to relaxing lounge music
Loads of Facials, Baths and other Girly things!
Burn my favorite Aromatherapy Candles.
Fresh Tea
LOL = Laugh out Loud
Date nights with the Hot Tub
Get outside and Breathe the Fresh Air
Positive Relationship building
Everyday Gratitude.
Being in the Moment

What things could you do to get out of overwhelm, technology and work overload?

Happy Monday! You either love them or hate them. I love Mondays and look at it as a brand new week to create something new. It’s the beginning of your brand new weekly journey and you get to decide exactly how it’s going to be!

This little meditation can be practiced anywhere at anytime. Riding on the subway, in the shower, driving to work, taking the kids to school, exercising or my personal favorite, my morning walk.

If your Monday is off to a rocky start and you are having a hard time getting in the groove, try this quick little meditation.

Imagine exhaling all negativity and inhaling positive energy.

Inhale and allow yourself to fully breathing in your passion and persistence to prosper in all that you do.

Exhale with a feeling of releasing control, surrendering all negative self talk and beliefs.

Happiness & Success,

Feeling like a Cracked Out Zombie? – Time Out


No CommentsLeave a Comment

As we all know, spending all day on the computer can leave us feeling like a cracked out zombie. One of my favorite ways to break away from the computer is Time Out. I don’t know about you but often times I can get so consumed in my work that I lose track of time & easily spend TONS of hours in front of the computer working, with zero break. No lunch, no exercise, no relaxation for my eyes or brain. This is not good.

At the beginning of this year I found a fab solution to help de-zombify my brain + release tension that builds when spending too much time in front of the computer. It has completely changed the way I work. Forcing me to take scheduled breaks throughout the day. Time Out, baby! Completely customizable, you get to pick how often your breaks are scheduled as well as how long they last for.

I set Time Out to take a ten minute break every hour. Once my working hour is up – Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” starts playing to get me pumped. I then run on my treadmill for 5-7 minutes. Grab some water or munchie goodness and head back to work. Great to get the blood flowing + give your eyes a rest + recharge your brain. These are called micro breaks. Note: You can select your own music or sound file for your break start and end time. Music you love can dramatically lift your mood. Choose a song that gets you amped and inspired.

At the end of the day, I essentially get way more done and feel so much better emotionally and physically because I am taking time out to breathe, exercise & relax.
No more ending my work day feeling like a cracked out zombie.
