“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” ~ Mark Twain

Remember old fashioned cameras (or any that weren’t in your phone)? They had intricate lenses you had to focus by hand. The process was very precise and technical and your results were 100% determined by…

…what you focused on.

If you didn’t get the results you wanted, it was because the lens wasn’t focused properly. One little tic to the right or left and you would’ve had the perfect shot. Right? …

Confidence comes from a latin word affīdāre which means “to trust oneself”; therefore, finding confidence is just having more trust in one’s self and fear of failure.

Confidence is a state of being clear headed either that a hypothesis is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective.

I talk to a lot of sales professionals and entrepreneurs, people starting their own businesses, and they want to learn: “ How can I develop more confidence or even just get myself a bit more confident so that I can be more successful in what I…

There’s thousands of individuals and companies marketing themselves out there — and you are one of them… So, here is my question for the day: Who are you?

Because as you can see, when you search through products, people, and services online — mediocrity and conformity is already 99% of everyone else’s day.

Not to sound harsh, but most people just follow what is trending or what is hot, and while that may be an awesome way to make some quick money — regarding a long-term and life purpose — it is not exactly fulfilling, is it?

It is just…

Whenever I’m faced a problem I don’t know enough to solve — I simply Google it…
As a Millennial, I can barely remember the Internet before Google made the vast collective of internet knowledge readily accessible for any question that crossed my mind.

Unfortunately, despite having more access to high-quality information to help us make life’s decisions, it hasn’t made decision-making any easier. We can now research the pros and cons of each and every option available to us. …

I get it…you’ve been working hard with your online business…but for some reason you aren’t seeing the results you were expecting. But don’t worry, it happens to the best of us, it’s all part of the learning and growth process. After talking to quite a few business owners over the last few years I realized most of them were facing a handful of very similar issues.

Below is a quick outline of exactly what I tell clients when they come to me asking about how to grow their business without adding hours of additional work to their already busy schedules!

Almost any marketing coach can tell you stories of students who came to them for help in launching their product. The student has the product ready to go. Maybe it needs a few tweaks, but they are small things that could be done in a few days or maybe even in a few hours. We’re talking about products that in many cases are better quality than 90% of products out there. But they won’t launch the product. They keep telling themselves their product/service isn’t ready, that it needs improving, the time isn’t right, etc…

They’re deceiving themselves. The real reason…

How many of you have ever experienced this notion of feeling like you’re “𝙉𝙤𝙩 𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝…”

Are you constantly judging yourself and thinking that somehow you should be more, do more, be better…and you just don’t seem to measure up in your own mind?

Would you believe me if I told you these thoughts all stem from a similar limiting belief that you’ve subconsciously been reinforcing since you were single-digit years old?

In order to achieve your future vision, you must take directed action, regardless of your present emotional, psychological or physical state. It can be more difficult at certain times than others. That lifestyle can even seem unreachable, but it’s important we remember that no matter what, it’s still possible. And it’s all up to you!

I’m sure there are numerous qualities you like about yourself, that you’re surely proud of, since they directly contribute to your personal success and achievements. If there aren’t — stop to think of some…I’ll wait. Now, there’s also one simple time-saving hack that could bring…

Someone asked me what I would do if I had to start my business over from scratch in 3 months (90-days). And that got me thinking — if I could take the experience I have and use it to start over from scratch, how would I do it?

When I say starting over, I mean it. In this hypothetical I wouldn’t have my mailing list. I wouldn’t have organic traffic, a following, name recognition — none of that. Just my experience as to what works and what doesn’t and the drive to make it happen.

Now let’s say that my…

How To Overcome A Fear Of Taking Action

Don’t fault yourself for being afraid of taking that big step-the massive action that needs to happen to realize your dream! We’ve all been afraid of taking action at least once in our lives. It’s a natural response to moving out of your comfort zone. But while you shouldn’t rebuke yourself for feeling fearful, neither should you wallow in it so that you never get past it.
