Are You Relatable?
As you know social media is inundated with so much information today. Some of it is great and some of it is not so great! For most of us that are running small businesses or that are in the coaching world, the challenge and the question is "How do we get seen and stand out with our message?" It's an obstacle that we struggle with every day as we try to build our audience, make an impact, and of course, optimize social media to leverage the business. Many of us know the a
Find Your Happy
Doesn’t it just make sense that the more time you put into doing the things you love to do, the happier you will be? It’s a sad realization but most Americans do not allow time in their life to pursue the things that excite them. In fact, according to Harris Polls only one in three Americans feel happy! That means that only 33.3% of Americas population is living a life full of happiness. One of the biggest mistakes we make is not allowing time in our lives for the things that
There's Plenty of Room For You!
I am so excited for next week as the California Women's Conference is finally here! It's two days of inspiration with thousands of women in attendance. Now I know that you may or may not be thinking, "Why is she promoting another women's conference when Rise Up For You does their own?" "Isn't this competition?" I hear this all the time! The truth is there is plenty of room for all of us including you! The work space regardless of what field it is, can accommodate all of
3 'Must Knows' to Building Your Start-up
This week I had the incredible opportunity to judge at DECA which "prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe." It was an incredible opportunity and very exciting to see young minds explore entrepreneurship and emerging start-ups. There were many incredible ideas and concepts that can change the consumer marketplace, however three key elements were consistently lacking in most pr
The Golden Rule to Networking!
How's your week going so far? Have you had the chance to get out there and meet some new faces and build new connections this week? This is something I try to make a point of at least once or twice a week. Meeting new people and building relationships is key to creating an incredible and supportive tribe around you, not to mention the possibility of partnerships and collaborations professionally. This whole idea of networking can be incredibly uncomfortable, especially w
Nourish Your Mind, Increase Your Happiness!
I have to tell you the truth, the past few weeks I have been feeling grumpy and down. I have been trying to figure out why and it suddenly hit me this past weekend! This past month has been a beautifully busy season, so much so that I haven't picked up a book from my nightstand in weeks. This simple act of reading and feeding my brain was affecting my behavior in a negative way because it was being ignored! It is true that the more you know and understand the easier it is
What's Your Why? Only for the Committed!
Are you running your own business right now, preparing to launch something, or thinking about building something of your own? I know you know this but there are a number of start-ups and small businesses out there that are barely making it off the ground. Not because they don’t have the skill or the talent to create a booming business but because of one thing and only one thing! The confidence to commit! You see today as a society we are sold the final product, the gold, the
How Knowing Nothing, Helps You with Everything!
I had a huge epiphany the other day, while working with my client, that I decided to share it with you. You may or may not be interested in starting your own company; a mini start-up, a coaching business, an online boutique, etc. The thought of building something on your own can be very overwhelming as most people don't know how to throw up a website, build a leadpage, post on social media, or even create photo to market their program. AHHHH!!!Where do you start!!! This was m
Take a Break! It's OK!
I have to admit, it's great to be back in action and moving and grooving with Rise Up For You, coaching, and all of the other fun things life is throwing my way. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me, but I needed to take a break! AND THAT'S OK! I, just like you, had my moments of beating myself up mentally because of the lack of movement I have had the past two months. However, it was much needed. As women sometimes we feel like we have to carry everything on ou
