I'm sure you have heard the old saying, "No man is an island." Much of us today are taught that building partnership, collaborations, and relationships professionally are the way to go if we want to increase our reach and audience. However, what do you do when those you are collaborating with burn you, don't hold up to their promises, or take advantage of the partnership you were hoping to create? I know I'm not the only one here who has been let down by a professional partne
This summer is a summer of self-development and change for me. I decided to take a leap and try new things and really break barriers in all areas! One thing I started implementing a few weeks ago was a more comprehensive morning routine. I heard a speaker once say that knowledge is the best gift you can give yourself. He recommended feeding your mind in three ways: read something, listen to something, and watch something that is going to help you grow and empower you. I have
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
A few weeks ago I had the incredible opportunity to go do a "Ted Like" talk in Toronto, Canada. My keynote talk is generally on "Break Your Limiting Beliefs Create Unlimited Success" however, this time I was asked to speak on The Top Tips to Effective Leadership!This was really exciting for me as it truly is one of the elements I am incredibly passionate about.
So let's start with the question, what is a leader? What are the qualities they should embody? In my opinion a lea
I'm sure you are familiar with the famous quote by Jim Rohn, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with!" It's a quote that does carry a lot of weight and truth as the people you surround yourself with can have an adverse effect on your success and happiness. However, building a tribe, community, or network around you is the easy, but building one that truly benefits you in a number of ways can be difficult.
Often times we surround ourselves aroun
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
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
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
As you know setting goals can be incredibly difficult. It's interesting because half of my friends and family love preparing goals and the other half dread it because they never accomplish what they set for themselves! Which one are you? Do you feel like you let yourself down every year or do you accomplish your goals with ease? I have to admit, sometimes I fall short of my goals. However, throughout the years and working on the development of Rise Up For You and NLN Producti
