Reflections from Colour Conference 2018

Reflections from Colour Conference 2018

I promised you last week a reflection from Colour Conference 2018. Many of you have hear me talk about Colour in the past. It's a women's conference held each year by Hillsong Church. It's not a business conference per se, but a place to come and get filled up spiritually to be even better equipped to run your business and serve hearts.

I'd love this post to be a reflection of the past three years I attended. So let's dive into the first one, in 2016! 

{Share} -Don't Sell

{Share} -Don't Sell

Last week I published a blog post entitled How to Confidently Book {IDEAL} Clients. It ended up being a hit and I was a bit surprised from the feedback that I received.  It turns out that “sharing your services” rather than selling, was something that was foreign to many of the women in this space.  In the business world we are constantly told to “SELL SELL SELL. Go out there and GET your customers. Close the sale. Give them the pitch” and so on. What if we just shifted our mindset to rather than “selling”, but sharing the God given gifts we have with those who need them?

Creation over Consumption

Creation over Consumption

This week we are talking a little bit of a controversial subject in the business world…...Consumption VS Creation. It’s only natural in the business world to SELL right? We are plagued with a mindset of always needing to “learn more” and “consume more”. You’ve been told before, “it didn’t work because you just haven’t taken MY course before. Once you take MINE, your life and/or business will change”. I call BS. The problem these days is NOT that you haven’t learned enough, it’s that you most likely are consuming TOO MUCH and not taking the time to take what you learned to create what it is you want to create.

Why being a diva is good for your business

Why being a diva is good for your business

This week we are going to have some FUN! Drumroll, we are throwing it back to an old topic I haven't discussed in OVER a YEAR that really needs to be brought up quarterly……."Why you should be a DIVA in your business" Ok, I know this sounds silly, but let me explain. You NEED to be INTENTIONAL when YOU are HIRING your clients. Yes, it’s not just about our clients hiring us, we have to hire them to work with us as well.

The not so simple parts of simplifying

The not so simple parts of simplifying

This has been a post on my heart for some time. I shared with you all that my 2018 word has been SIMPLIFY. And guys, you know when you chose your word, BEWARE, you will be CHALLENGED beyond belief. The first three months (gosh where does time go?!) I have literally gone back to the basics. And today I want to share with you how exactly I did this in case YOU would like to add some simplicity to your life!

No such thing as COMFORT in CALLING

No such thing as COMFORT in CALLING

We often think if doesn't feel good it must not be right. Let me explain this because I do always say "only do what feels good" and don't want you to get the wrong idea. I look at "feeling good" from two different perspectives in business.

1. There is the "this is so hard. I want to pass out when I think about speaking in front of hundreds of people but I know I want to do it"

2. And then there is the "speaking totally isn't for me. My people connect through writing. It feels so good to be confident in this and just deliver writing to them and anything else would be out of alignment". 

Sacrifice in Business

Sacrifice in Business

The words SACRIFICE + INVESTING tend to bring up all types of feels for many. From fear, to excitement, to yearning, to intimidation, etc. First what I want to say is investing should ONLY feel good. And second, if you want to be a true CEO of your business, you need to work your mindset so that it DOES feel good. Now why? Because the only way to grow + scale your business AND create ease /flow within your business is to make SACRIFICES + INVEST. I know, you probably don’t want to hear the hard truth, but tough love never killed anyone. Let me start by sharing my story of sacrifice + investing.

Riding the Waves of Entrepreneurship

Riding the Waves of Entrepreneurship

Back in the fall I asked you guys to submit some topics you’d like me to teach on. This one was a theme that came up for several of you -----> Whether you are in your first or tenth year of business you know exactly what I’m talking about. You could wake up one morning feeling down in the dumps about how your business is {NOT} going, to onboarding a new client + celebrating, to having a long term client decide not to re-sign your monthly retainer, and being back in the dumps! These are what I call “the waves of entrepreneurship”.
