The Problem With Vision Boards (And What Coaches & Consultants Must Do Instead)

Are you putting together a vision board in this new season to help you visualize your dreams? Whether you’re celebrating a new year or a new season, you may be using a vision board to help you make new business goals.

For most business owners, they do nothing with a vision board after they create it. That’s why if you’re a coach or consultant, you need to take an additional step to make that vision come true.

Check out the video below…

In this video, I show you how to use the Income Alignment Method to help you bring your vision board to life.

Why Are You So Stubborn and Prideful?

imgRant-Christianbiz

The other night, my niece and I enjoyed a girls’ night in as her parents (my sister & brother-in-law) went on their first date night to see Stevie Wonder in concert.

It wasn’t easy to get her to fall asleep…

Her bedtime was at 7:30pm, but she cried and cried and cried. I finally put her in the car and drove her around town for 40-minutes while playing her favourite CD.

She was out like a light.

By the time I returned back to my sister and brother-in-law’s home, my niece was more than ready to fall asleep in her bed.

She’s my “Why.”

  • Why do I remain self-employed when some months make me want to scream?
  • Why do I sacrifice getting some of the things I truly want (not need) so I can continue to operate my own business?
  • Why do I invest in a coach even though at times I wish I could re-direct that money to a pair of new winter boots?
  • Why do I get up early to read blogs posts, meet with my virtual team and prepare content for the week?

Why?

The “I” Word That’s Killing Your Cashflow

imgVideo-theIWord

Recently, I asked those on my list to fill out an application to secure one of a few spots to speak with me over the phone about their cashflow challenges.

As I poured through the applications, there were some really heart-breaking stories. Some are experiencing chronic unemployment, others are living paycheck to paycheck and still others are deeply mired in debt.

Despite the money drama, all have one thing in common…

And that’s what I explain in the video below. There’s a word that starts with the letter “i” that is killing your cashflow. Although this video teaching is directed to those who were not invited to book a session with me, I’m sharing this widely because I know someone can benefit from this information.

This “I” word is harming your cashflow, confidence and connections…

Why Including Multiple Bonuses With Your Kindle Book No Longer Work

imgCover-Schmooze-125x199

imgCover-Schmooze-125x199I recently published my sixth book on Amazon Kindle. I hosted a LIVE webinar showing step-by-step how to set up your Kindle publisher account and upload your manuscript.

One thing I said on the training is that my newest digital book, Schmooze Your Way to Success, would not sell any copies. Why would I admit this on the webinar?

Because after publishing 5 of my 6 books through Kindle, I know exactly what needs to be done to sell books…

You can’t just write a manuscript, then upload it to Kindle expected to sell thousands of downloads. The marketing of your book has to start THE DAY you start writing the manuscript. Any later than that, and frankly, it’s too late.

I’ll tell you exactly what doesn’t work when it comes to Kindle book marketing…

Here’s One of 5 Top of Mind Problems Your Kindle Book Must Solve

There’s a simple reason why authors don’t sell more of their books. They’re boring. In other words, the book that’s written does not focus on one of the 5 top of mind problems.

If you’re stuck wondering what to write about, this is your answer…

People don’t care about your winning smile or fancy college degree(s). You may the brightest bulb in the scoreboard, but if your book  doesn’t promise something, the reader will not buy.

That’s the secret to selling more copies – without selling…

I’m Publishing My Sixth Book Through Kindle – And You’re Invited to Watch

leesaWithP4P

I always thought I was a horrible writer. In fact, I would loudly proclaim that I’m not a writer and I actually stink at it. That’s until I got my first book contract.

I very quickly changed my tune…

With an aggressive deadline and a cash advance, I pulled up my socks and produced almost 50,000 words in 4 short months. My first book, Podcasting for Profit, was printed by my publisher just in time for the Podcast & New Media Expo, an annual gathering of podcasters in Los Angeles.

I cried the very first time I held my book…
