Money Talk

Money TalksConversations about money abound. We usually talk aloud about money when we’ve just had an unexpected expense, a dry spell with income, or some other painful experience. It’s quite acceptable in American culture to complain and fret to each other about our finances. In fact, others will quickly join in with you for a pity party.

We also like to whisper about the loads of money Joe Blow from Windy City has in his possession. People talk about others who make a lot of money like it’s a dirty thing rather than something to celebrate. A friend of mine left a message that he’s consistently bringing in $7,000 a day in an industry where most people would think that was impossible.

I truly get inspired when I hear of others’ success. Why? It gets me excited to know that if other people can get in alignment with consistently growing their income, joyfully, then I can too.

It’s important to be aware of our conversations with others about money.Remember, you amplify any thought when you give it your attention. As Mike Dooley likes to say, “Thoughts become things.” The more attention you give to something, the faster and bigger you bring it into your reality. Complain about not having enough money and it’s a surefire way to attract more experiences around lack of money.

Most people forget that the Universe doesn’t know what’s real or not. It simply reads how you’re feeling and then gives you more of that experience.  Appreciate the money you have and others’ success with it, and guess what you’ll get more of? That’s right! Love money, and money will love you! Have fun with it, and it’ll bring more joy into your life.

The conversations in your head about money are just as important as the ones you say aloud. Some of them happen without you even knowing. They come as an overall feeling of worry, lack, or having to be in abundant action with money. They happen so often that you don’t even notice anymore.
I boosted my money mojo when I first released my now best-selling product using a game I created with my bestie, Eva Gregory, the What If Up Game:

What if . . .
  • Speed Dial the Universe journal sold out in the first month?

  • Mind Games did the same?

  • Every major bookstore in the world carried these products?

  • Both products were translated into every major language?

  • The next two visualization CDs I create came bundled with Mind Games?

  • The people who bought these products loved them so much that they ended up buying other products and referring me to others?

  • These customers filled all of my classes to create waitlists?

The point here is to begin deliberately directing all conversations about money toward an outcome that empowers you. Stop wondering if you’re going to be able to afford something. Decide that you will have more than enough. Stop looking at your current reality to make your future. Decide that your financial future gets better each month.

All prosperity begins in your head. Action is last. Action must come from the knowing that you are on your way up the financial ladder. Enjoy the climb.
 
What new conversation about your prosperity will you have today?

Don’t Work So Hard At Attraction

Don't Work So Hard At AttractionThere’s an abundance of information about how to make more money, have a successful business, and create a more fulfilling life.

Some of the information is not true… especially when it comes to the Law of Attraction. It makes it look like you need to be careful of every thought and word that comes out of your mouth or you’ll attract something negative or scary.

Never fear. Literally. Being deliberate about where your attention goes shouldn’t become a job. Yes, it’ll take practice to trust that you get to have an abundance of clients, money, and whatever else you want. But consider it simply a practice.

If you find yourself worrying about something that may happen in the future, relax. The last thing you want to do is worry about what you’ve been worrying about. It kind of defeats the whole purpose, right?

The fastest way out of stress, sadness, anger, or plain old helplessness is to acknowledge, accept, feel, and address what’s happening. Resisting where you’re currently at in life or how you’re feeling will only dig you into a deeper hole.

For instance, let’s say you notice that you’re feeling very frustrated that your cash flow is down this month. You notice that all you can think about is going broke and never getting ahead.

Then you remember that the Law of Attraction will deliver whatever you’re thinking. Yikes! This means you’re repelling clients. How should you react?

First, acknowledge how you’ve been feeling. Next, ask yourself if you’re willing to feel a little bit better about money. If the answer is no, that’s okay. When you’re ready to shift your focus… you will. You have full permission to be upset or worry. Stay there until you’re ready to truly do something different.

If you’re ready to feel better, then it’s best to ease your way into a better feeling. It’s pretty tough to go from feeling like a victim to feeling like a 7-figure biz owner in a matter of moments. It’s not impossible, but you’ll have longer-lasting results when you take baby steps and don’t force yourself to be a happy camper when you’re not truly feeling like one.

Ask yourself if there’s any action you can take that’ll move you toward feeling more confident about client attraction. If it feels natural and you have a sense of relief while taking the action, you know you’re headed in the right direction. If the action feels like it will add more stress to your plate, hold off.

The whole process of attraction is much easier than you may be making it. You don’t have to manage every thought in your brain. You don’t have to ask for what you want, over and over again, until you manifest it. You don’t have to do endless techniques and processes to “make” your goals happen.

All you need to know about the Law of Attraction is:

  • Be clear on the outcomes, goals, experiences, and material things you desire.
  • Be clear how you want to feel day-to-day.
  • Make how you feel the highest priority.
  • Embrace the fact that you are actually safe in this world. 
  • Practice being deliberate, and hop back on the horse anytime you fall off.
  • If you’re going to be angry or sad, at least choose to consciously be there rather than landing there by default and being swallowed up by it.
  • Have a good time whatever you’re doing. You’re always en route to the next thing, so enjoy the now. Even good stuff comes out of being in a funk.
  • Any action you take has to be a want to rather than a have to orshould.
  • It’s none of your business what your family, employees, or friends are doing, and it’s not your job to fix their lives. Mind your own business.
  • Live your life for your personal joy and you will always serve others in the most empowering way without even trying.
  • Relax, this is supposed to be fun. It’s a game, not work.
  • Surround yourself with people and things that feel good.
  • Look for what is working, and give those things more attention than what is not working.
  • Identify what you want from any situation, and be confident that you will find your solution. There are literally hundreds of ways for you to experience your desired outcome.
  • Practice living in a state of trust that all is and will be very well for you.

This is not necessarily all about positive thinking. It is more about trusting YOU. 

How will you practice living in a state of trust now?

Pushing for Profits with a Capital P

IPushing For Profits With A Capital P admit it. I’ve had plenty of freak-out moments about money during my twenty-plus years as a coach. It doesn’t matter that I teach and breathe the ins and outs about the Law of Attraction, I still get ticked off when I can’t produce the results I want.

The real kicker is when I look back on how I was feeling before the profits dwindled. It’s always so obvious how I created my underwhelming results. I was Pushing for results. I was probably somewhat aware that I didn’t feel confident about nailing my results at the time, but didn’t take any time to course-correct how I was feeling.

I just kept pushing forward.

I watch the same process happen to the business owners I coach. By the time they have an acute awareness that they’re pushing for their profits, it’s almost too late. They’re already in a cash crisis, sicker than a dog (where did that phrase come from?), and frazzled.

You may be thinking that you don’t push for results. Maybe you call it something else, but I’d bet money that you do it. Whatever you call it, it doesn’t feel good when you’re doing it. And it always can be boiled down to one thing… disbelief.

You don’t believe you’re going to get your intended results or that they’ll happen in the perfect timing.

Just because you’re not focused on profits when you’re pushing doesn’t mean that you’re not doing it. It shows up in all sorts of funky ways.

Here are the telltale signs you’re pushing for profits:

  • You’re constantly searching for new marketing techniques.
  • When you implement a new strategy in your business and you don’t get results in the first 48 hours, you worry that it’s not working.
  • You say yes to clients and customers when your heart says no.
  • You keep working even though you’re tired, not inspired, or upset.
  • You won’t raise your prices even though you know you should.
  • You won’t hire someone to help you when it would truly take your business to the next level.
  • You feel like you should be doing more every day to grow your business.
  • You judge your success by how many things you checked off your to-do list.
  • You work very hard to say the right things when talking to potential customers or writing marketing copy.
  • You focus on getting money in the door quickly, but never really plan and implement strategies for long-term profit flow.
  • You implement one new strategy after another when you don’t get immediate results.
This pushing vibe can be kicked to the curb like the bad habit it is, very simply.However, it takes guts, balls, gusto… whatever you want to call it. It can even take a man’s man down to his knees when he’s trying to get off the adrenaline kick.

Here’s a simple solution that may prove challenging (or not, it’s your choice).

Rather than push toward the goal, push away from your desk or phone. Yep, put yourself on a time out until you identify what belief is driving the push. You don’t have to rid yourself of the belief in that moment; just identify and breathe. Breathe deep belly breaths while you imagine pulling your energy back into you. When you push for results, you’re randomly throwing your energy and focus all over the place (whether you are aware of it or not).

Ask yourself how you’d move forward on this project or task if you knew that you’d get the end result no matter what you did. When you feel centered, move forward.

That’s it. Your solution is to “push away from the push.”

You don’t have to rewire your thinking about profits all at once. That’s a day-to-day practice. Work with each “pushing” thought as it pops up.

I experience “the push” as a lot of mind chatter in the background of my head that I can’t even articulate. It’s like a radio station that’s full of static. A bit irritating but not enough to stop me from moving forward. I have to make a conscious decision to stop whatever I’m in the middle of and sit still. Sometimes I don’t want to stop. But I do.

If you commit to a month of stopping in the middle of your oh-so-important quest for cash and allow yourself to be more easy about it, I promise you’ll have brighter ideas, faster sales conversions, and happier customers… because you’ll be more attuned to what is truly in your best interest.
 
Where are you pushing?  What different, more positive action can you do instead to change your vibe?

Partnerships That Double Your Sales and Fun

“Build it and they will come.” Partnerships That Double Your Fun

What a crock! Total lie.

I built a lot of things in my business that didn’t result in customers running to buy, readers commenting on my blog, or even fans “liking” my Facebook page.

Everything is easier when you get help from other people.

How does a business owner get help in spreading the word about their message, especially if they’re new to the party?
 
The first time I asked someone to support my cause, I felt a bit awkward. But as I turned my attention to creating a relationship vs. just getting them to help me, everything changed. People bent over backward to support my mission.

When I launch a program, why would over 100 other entrepreneurs promote the heck out of me and offer huge bonuses to those who become my clients?

1. I offer something their tribe would benefit from learning.

2. Their tribe will appreciate them for sharing free tools and resources.

3. I offer commission to those who refer a sale.

4. I make the process fun by playing games and deepening our relationship.

5. I give back support to them by doing one or several of these:

a. introduce them to others who can promote them
b. promote them
c. share what’s worked for my promotions
d. give bonuses they can give to those who purchase their products and services
e. be a guest speaker as an added value to their program or product
  
Not all joint venture partnerships are based on promoting each other. I recently met a woman at an event, and within 60 seconds I knew we needed to partner somehow. I felt her knowledge would be of great value in one of my paid programs.

I asked her if she’d be a guest expert. She said, “YES!” Win-win-win!

It’s a win for me because I add value to my program, and clients think I’m a rock star. She gets exposure to my best clients who may later become her clients or refer her to clients.

My clients get to benefit from her expertise and make changes in their businesses as a result.

Partnering with other people leverages your time, expands your visibility, increases your sales, and makes a positive impact on all those involved.

Try it; you’ll like it!

Five Practices to Increase Profits Without Stress

Five Practices to Increase Profits without StressWhen your main focus is on increasing profits and expanding the reach of your marketing, it’s incredibly easy to be taken down a dozen rabbit holes each day. There are so many marketing, leadership, and small business experts giving abundant strategies to grow your business that it creates an obstacle course of to-dos for the average entrepreneur.

If you’ll think less of implementing the 101 profit ideas you have and give more time to the following five simple practices, you’ll find that you’ll have less stress and more profits without trying.

Your mind will want to divert you, but don’t give in. Profitable businesses use some version of the following practices and have results to prove their power.

1.  Always begin each brainstorming session, networking conversation, or task knowing exactly what you want to get out of it. Never just show up and plunge into the task at hand without sitting down and giving conscious thought to your ideal outcome for each segment of your day.

2.  Tap into your Inner Business Expert several times each day. Most people save their spiritual connection and intuition for after-work hours or when there is a crisis. When you decide to partner with your inner guidance, your business genius will be at full power. You can access out-of-the-box solutions, create new products and services, and feel at peace no matter how chaotic things might appear.

3.  Ask yourself, “How can I make this more fun, easier, and increase profitability?” It’s amazing what can happen when you ask yourself a powerful inquiry. It’s even better when you use this question to make an already good thing the best ever! Go through all the main areas of your business at least once a month and use this inquiry. And don’t forget to connect with your Inner Business Expert before you answer.

4.  Use the talent and expertise of others. You may be brilliant at several things, but there are other people who can put a different spin on what you’re already doing and help you to change your entire marketplace. When pondering your newest offering or tweaking a system, ask colleagues how they might improve what you’re doing. It’s best to use this practice before things go haywire. Join masterminds and get coached by people who’ve mastered their area of expertise. Yes, you’ll have to ask questions that expose your weaknesses, but you’ll be rewarded handsomely.

5.  Stretch yourself. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of doing only what you need to get by. Challenge yourself every week to go beyond what’s normal for you. If you never give services and products away, do it. If you give everything away, stop… charge more. Use new technology to simplify the way you market or deliver your goods and services. Hire a coach that will cause you to think HUGE. Hire someone to help you market, file, or do customer care… before you think you can afford it! Commit yourself fully to a project that scares the pants off you (because YOU CAN handle it!).
 
I believe in you!
 
Which of the five practices above will you use first and why?

Do You Believe in Easy?

Do You Believe In Easy?Over the years, I’ve had many clients who say, “I always get what I want, but it never seems easy.”

All struggle is about mindset. You may think you just had bad luck or random acts of technical glitches, but it all comes down to what you believe. There is nothing that can’t be traced back to what you were thinking.

Struggle can show up in many ways:

  • Financial loss or roller coaster rides
  • Big clients or partners pulling out of deals at the last minute
  • Website, computer, car, or appliance glitches
  • One employee or contractor after another who isn’t “quite” ideal
  • Creativity droughts
  • Partnerships or relationships that feel like a consistent tug-of-war
  • Building a business that fulfills a need in the world but the world doesn’t seem to notice
  • One health issue after another, big or small

I have a plaque on my wall with this quote from Tennessee Williams: “Luck is believing that you’re lucky.” The same goes for living on “Easy Street.” You’ve got to believe that it’s possible to have major goals and desires manifest easily so that things seem to fall in place without hard effort.

Yes, I know that some of you think that you’re not worthy of success, money, or love without some hard work involved. There are those of you who think you’re being responsible or admirable when you work your tush off.

But what about those of you who want it to be easy but can’t find your sweet spot? You might believe something can be easy but actually don’t expect it. Therefore there’s an expectation that some part of your goal won’t go according to plan. You fear somewhere in the back of your mind that you won’t be able to pull it off.

You know why some things in your life are easy? You don’t even give them a second thought.

I waterski a lot, and many times I have people driving my boat who have never pulled a skier behind a boat. I never worry about them being able to pull me out of the water. I’ve been skiing forever and it’s not a big deal to me to have a skilled driver. I get up every time. I don’t contemplate the scenario of not getting up. This is also why it was easy for me to continue skiing into my third trimester with both of my pregnancies. Skiing is fun and a no-brainer in my mind.

It’s all about perception. Now, you can’t always go from struggle to easy in one try or one step. Especially if it’s a topic where your emotions run high.

Your first step to easy is to not see the desired outcome as a huge deal. Would it be cool to double your income? Hell YES! And, what if you didn’t relate to it as a big hairy deal or miraculous? What if you saw your money goal as just another number that you’ll mosey up to and make friends with?

What if you paid less attention to getting your outcome and more time tuned into what you’re being called to do in this moment? What if you allowed your Inner Guidance to suggest your action steps rather than your ego, fear, or head?

Easy is a good thing. Easy is a mode. It’s supposed to be easy. #justsayin

What can you make easy right now?

What Are You Making Up About Yourself?

What Are You Making Up About YourselfWe’re all making up stories about what other people’s motives are, what will happen in the future, what the past means and our own capabilities. It’s natural to make things up in our heads. We all do it. The key is in making sure you likethe stories you’re making up.

Are your stories empowering about others, the future, and yourself?

I’m constantly telling my clients and class participants to expect short and sweet emails from me. I tell them that I don’t enjoy typing, I’m slow, and not good at it. That’s not a very good story to be telling!

While it might be partially true, my typing will never improve until I change my story. I’ve decided that my new story is that my typing consistently improves in an effortless way. Now, I do have to give focus to the new story rather than reminding myself several times a day of the old story.

Many people have made up stories about me and my quest for extreme adventures. While I’ve jumped out of planes, flown all over the U.S. in a tiny plane, water and snow skied, rappelled off rocks, zip lined through the jungle, and bungee jumped… I am by no means a daredevil!

Several years ago, my mom wanted to rappel into an underground cave for her birthday. I made up a story that it would be like all the other rappelling I’ve done. Not! I was breathing hard to maintain my composure and get past the fear. I’ve got to constantly talk myself through moments where I’m scared. When I make up a story that I might get injured or die, I focus on a new story… I am safe, I can do this.
 
What stories do you make up and live, that you aren’t even aware of?
 
How many times have you told someone what “issues and challenges” you have?

If you consider any area of your life challenging, you start digging in deeper to your “story about it.” You collect data that proves it’s true.
 
Have you ever told yourself that you’re challenged in the wealth department? How about the health department? Don’t forget the relationship arena.

Bah humbug! Don’t rain on your parade with such stories. Practice being deliberate with your intentions in these areas.

Make up stories about finding peace in all areas of your life.

I had a client tell me that his issue has always been spending more money than he earns. He really wanted me to understand how he got this issue. He kept telling me the pain this issue was causing him. I put a stop to the story by explaining that the more he focused on this issue, the longer he would keep perpetuating the circumstances.

He was keeping himself in pain by staying mesmerized by his story. I asked, “What would life be like without this story?”  The response was, “Amazing and scary.”
 
Sometimes we don’t know who we’d be without our stories. I was getting coached one day by Perenna Fleming (who is a dear heart!) and she told me I overidentified with being a victim. YUCK!  And it was true. I had kept myself in pain, by constantly remembering hurtful stories. I was being my own worst enemy. Torturing myself. Ewwwwwww!

Think about it. The only things that hurt us are the thoughts we think about circumstances in our life. It’s all perception! You can choose painful, neutral or joyful stories.

Every minute on this earth can be pleasure- or pain-filled. I encourage you to practice making up the best possible stories you can conjure up! Watch what starts manifesting in your life as a result. You’ll be committed to writing fairy tales. And then living them. ;-)
 
What’s the first line of YOUR new fairy tale? ;-)

Make Money While You Learn

AMake Money While You Learncquiring new information can help you make wise choices, save you years of mistakes, and speed up your progress.

But often, entrepreneurs tell themselves they don’t know enough to attract clients or customers. They put off growing their business until they learn more.

If you’ve ever thought that you need more experience, more training, more certificates, or more education before you can go after your dream, you may have fallen into a common trap.

Most of you have enough knowledge to begin moving forward on any project or dream. Of course, learning new skills is required to rock your business, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be successful right now.

Over twenty years ago, I took my first coaches training course. I immediately opened my coaching practice and built it while going through my certification process. In fact, the Coaches Training Institute requires you to have five clients before you do the training. They want you to practice your skills and make money while learning.

Your knowledge deepens as you take action and implement what you already know. I think that listening to seminars, reading books, and taking trainings are good eye openers, but they don’t actually give you knowledge. You have to use the information and see what results you get and then adjust your course. This is where knowledge is gained.

I can think I’m teaching a client how to grow their business by giving them information, but it’s not until I engage that client in their own process that the education begins. When you go within yourself and discover which beliefs, actions, and habits serve you well and which don’t, you’ll have moved up the learning curve.

Steve Droke said, “Knowledge is power and enthusiasm pulls the switch.” This quote is right on the money when it comes to building a business. I was running on pure passion and very little marketing knowledge when I built my business. It worked quite well for me. I filled my practice in record time.

As I gained more knowledge about marketing and abundance, I was able to grow it even more. But I had to be excited about the knowledge. If you learn new information and allow it to overwhelm you, you won’t do anything with it.

A little knowledge goes a long way when used with inspired actions… one baby step at a time.  What’s your VERY NEXT baby step?

Be REALLY Detailed About What’s in It for Them

 

Be Really Detailed About What's In It For ThemYour clients aren’t mind readers. We often, unknowingly, assume everyone intuitively understands the power of our message, strategy, or feedback.

Well, they don’t. You have to be very detailed about why you’re telling them what you’re telling them and why you’re doing what you’re doing. And even more detailed about why they need to partner or work with you.

Once you identify what’s in it for the person you’re talking to, it’s easy for them to see how you or your product can give them even more value.

Let’s take my message, for example. I spend a lot of time teaching business owners how to tap in to their Inner Business Expert. I understand why this is critical for them to know before telling them to get into new strategies, hiring/firing team members, and/or creating new products or services.

They understand that it feels good when they use their own divine intelligence, but they can’t connect the dots to see how this will increase their profits. It has to be driven home in many different ways before they stop their old profit-blocking patterns and start using what they’ve learned about their Inner Business Expert.

You have to show people why what you’re telling them is going to get them their desired result.

I don’t like shots, but if I get poison oak, I’m going straight to the doctor and baring my bum to get relief. My doc has educated me on all of the options, plus I’ve tried my own, and it’s clear that a shot will work faster than anything (including me shifting my energy to allow for healing!).

If the doctor didn’t educate me, I’d be very hesitant to get the shot since I prefer to do things naturally, when possible. His detailed response made it easier for me to choose my solution and trust his guidance.

Let’s say you’re planning on raising your fees on services or upgrading a product. You don’t want to be apologetic.

Position this change with your clients as an amazing service you’re offering for a ridiculously good price, and they’ll pay double what they originally paid… if they’re super clear about what’s in it for them.

But you have to take the time to really think about how every feature the product or service has will create massive joy and results for the end user. Then you have to clearly articulate that.

Give tons of examples, too. This isn’t about selling so much as painting a vivid picture of the end result you know they want.

I still have to be very conscious of this practice when I write for my website. Iknow the power of what I’m offering, but even my repeat customers may not see it if I don’t spell it out clearly.

Clarity means people will follow your directions, take the next step, follow your lead, and buy with confidence and speed. Ka-ching! 

How can you start being more detailed? Share below!

Claim Your Expertise

Claim Your ExpertiseEveryone who owns a business has expertise that will be hugely appreciated by their 5-Star Clients and Customers. So why aren’t more business owners loud and proud about who they are and what they bring to the marketplace?

I began my coaching practice fresh out of my first coaching workshop at The Coaches Training Institute. I’d been a coach prior to that weekend at a personal growth seminar company. Although I had experience, I was by no means an expert at coaching. My number one business-building technique in those days was passion.

It was clear to me that coaching could transform the course of a human’s life if they would let it.

After awhile I found that I wanted to narrow my focus in coaching to helping people consciously use the Law of Attraction to get their goals. It worked. My clients came to me because I was shouting from the rooftops that I knew that this stuff worked.

Here’s the secret I learned about being an expert: I didn’t have to know it ALL to be an expert. I just had to be grounded enough in the information to be confident. And I taught it in a way that made sense to me. I was also practicing it in my own life. Did I have every goal I desired? Hell no! Do I now? Nope. But I was up front about who I was and what I knew. That was enough for people to be attracted to the message and ask for more.

When you take a stand in your expertise, you and your business will transform rapidly.

Prosperity will come easier. The clarity you have about how your product or service will impact your 5-Star Clients is like a neon sign that calls to them. They’ll be able to find you easily because you’ll stand out from the crowd. Your company will shine because your whole vibe will change from wimpy to brawny. If you’re uncertain about the value of what you offer, it’s like having a tarp over your building, store, or website… nobody can see you.

Your marketing message will be easier to craft and oh so powerful. When you stop trying to get people to like you and just focus on your message, it’ll be riveting to your ideal customers. They’ll eat up whatever you offer because the message will resonate with their needs.

You’ll be freed up from the pressure of pleasing the masses. Hear this… not everyone needs or wants what you offer. That’s just the way it is. This makes your life easier. You don’t have to know it all or figure out how to make your offers appeal to everyone. This allows you to only focus on what you do best and do it in a way that feels honest to you. No more pretending, soft-shoeing, or hiding out.

Whether you believe this or not, you have something unique in the marketplace. Nobody can deliver what you deliver in the way that you deliver it. There are a gazillion coaches out there in the marketplace these days. But nobody delivers the material I do. They offer something similar, but they’ll say it differently. They won’t have my quirkiness, boldness, analogies, stories, or insight.

It works the same if you offer products. Look at Zappos.com. They sell shoes! Do you know how many people sell the same exact shoes?! But Zappos makes the shopping experience fun and all about the customer. They have a unique CEO and culture that the competition couldn’t duplicate if they tried.

You must stand in your expertise even as a newbie. Whatever strengths and knowledge you have is enough right now to meet every business goal you have.

We’re all learning as we go. Even the experts mess up the very thing at which they claim to be an expert. I’ve seen it happen to others and watched it happen to me. But when you fall down and go BOOM you become more of an expert through the learning of recovery.

So like Richard Carlson said, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” You have enough wisdom right now. Start from there and be loud and proud about what you offer. Your 5-Star Clients are waiting for you to be loud and proud and to claim your expertise.
