The Second Quarter is DONE!

OH my GOSH! It is the end of the second quarter.  The year is half gone.  How are you doing on your targets?  If you are on target, then great and push for a little more  If not, then let’s figure out how you can meet it.  Crunch it down: Decide on the amount of money/sales that you need to meet your target by the end of the year.  Let’s say you need $24,000  in sales to meet your target by the end of the year. Divide $24,000 by 6 months = $4,000 target per month. $4000/month = $1000/week Decide on how many units or products you need to sell to make $1,000 per week.  Let’s say you need to sell 2 units at $500 per month. About how many calls/contacts do you see before you make a sale?  Let’s say 10. In order to sell 2 units a week,…

It's My Birthday Today

It’s my birthday today.  Woo Hoo!  I am so blessed.  I am 70 years old today. WOW! Seventy years is a long time and, yet, I feel much younger.  To what do I attribute my youthfulness?   Self-Care - Genetics have been good to me and I take care of myself on the outside and the inside.  I forgive easily (including myself)  and let go of bad feelings. Discipline is the highest form of self-care and I am really good at this.  They call me the Accountability Queen.  I truly love myself and all that is me.   Mindset - Our internal conversations never stop.  All we can do is choose the ones that serve us.  My glass is half full, I shift off of any judgments and opinions that are negative and replace them with loving thoughts. I believe that people are doing the best they can and do…

Feminine Leadership in Action

There is a growing conversation and discussion about bringing feminine leadership to the workplace, government and community. Just what is that? More women in the workplace? More women in leadership roles?  No. It is bringing feminine traits to business, community, and government.   The world is starving for feminine leadership. Not just from a woman in a woman’s body, but feminine because of how she shows up and who she is being.  When a woman is in her power, passion, radiance and joy, there is nothing more magnificent and compelling. Whether she is at the office or the dinner table, as she allows herself to shine and share her truth with love and presence, the world becomes a better place. Everyone is empowered: other women, men, and children.   Feminine leadership is about changing the conversations in our world. Change from fear, scarcity and competition to empowerment, abundance and community.…

Lack

We all hear about prosperity and scarcity, but let’s go deeper on Scarcity.  Most people think about scarcity as related to money and it’s way more than that. Living in lack relates to time, money, self confidence, self love, self respect and more.   Language is very important and gives clues about living in lack.  One could have lots of money and say something like, “I don’t learn from my mistakes.” The connotation is that this person feels that there is something wrong with them. The key is the judgment.  When we make statements about ourselves with judgment, we are minimizing our value. To me, this is the most severe form of living in lack.   Lack of confidence, self respect or self love creates a huge hole in our way of being. I can dress to the nines, carry myself with confidence and on the surface fit right in.…

Chaos

Let me describe chaos: A state of confusion with no order and apparently no control. Sometimes there is so much on our plate that we don’t even know where to start.  When at home we think of things to do at work and when we are at work, we think of what needs to be done at home. In today’s world we have kids, spouses, work, sports, friends, chores etc.  We end up putting one foot in front of the other with no real plan or structure. Circumstances have us around the neck.   How many of you occasionally live in chaos? How can this happen? How did things get so out of control?  PERSPECTIVE.  In the chaotic state everything has the same weight or urgency. Thus, any new injection of something to do is as important as what you are doing right now. It only adds more feeling of…

Is Fear Running Your Business?

What is this fear?  There is innate fear like being startled from a loud noise or fear to go out on the plexiglass see-through floor in a high building.  These are automatic reactions that are there to preserve life. However most fears are learned.  A child is not born with a fear of spiders or snakes.  He is influenced by his culture and environment.  Evidence is collected from parents and significant others that something is to be feared.   As we get older we develop fears from association.  We have associations that cause fear.  “If I don’t make enough money this month, I will be a failure.” “If I talk about that with my spouse, a fight will ensue?”  We also make up fears based on previous fears.  We all have fear of success, fear of failure, fear of what will happen, fear that something won’t happen….it goes on and…

What is Feminine Leadership?

I recently became an Amazon  #1 best selling author: "Faces of the New Feminine Leadership" What is Feminine Leadership? It is a management style generally characterized by more feminine qualities and behaviors such as empathy, effective communication, and community in the workplace.  I am referring to the traits not the gender of the leader. Both men and women can have the feminine leader traits that the world is starving for. However, when a woman is in her power, passion, radiance and joy, there is nothing more compelling. As she allows herself to shine and share her truth with love and presence, the world becomes a better place.   Eight authors came together to share their story about connecting to their true self and what it takes to have the courage to lead from the heart. We stand for a new conversations in business where fear, scarcity and competition are changed…

Tax Time

Oh my Goodness, it’s tax time. How many of you are in a dither about getting your taxes done? Is it the chaos of loose receipts? The fear of what you’ll have to pay? Or the sense of scarcity of not having the money to pay?   Most of us have a “thing” about doing taxes.  Forbes has a 5 step process that is easy to follow: Gather your receipts. Make a list of income sources. Consider an IRA contribution. Revisit your withholding instructions. Your savings rates might improve if you set withholding levels so you receive a refund you can deposit as one lump sum. Devise a better system for next year. The key here is to devise a better system. Trying to do all 5 steps with a filing deadline breathing down your neck is really a stressor and it makes it more difficult.   I fine-tune my…

The First Quarter is Gone

Egads! The end of the first quarter has arrived.  The first thing we human beings do is to put a judgement on our progress. “I’m good because I reached my quarterly goal.” Or “I’m bad because I did not meet my quarterly goal.”     Judgment stops us in our tracks! If we are “good” for reaching our goal, we become complacent and ride out the next quarter without any efforts toward improvement.  If we are “bad” because we didn’t reach our goal, we beat ourselves up and often become stuck in our opinion of us.  The problem with beating ourselves up is that we miss the opportunity for growth and learning. It is impossible to beat myself up and learn a the same time. I get lost in the judgment and the “badness” of it and totally miss the learning of how I can improve.   So, that being…
