Ep #23: Crafting Plans that Thrill + Produce Big Results

January 8, 2019

Planning is a thrilling, creative process where we look into the future to contemplate life's infinite possibilities. Proper, soul-guided planning is an essential part of growing or scaling up your business or reaching those highest life and career goals.

When planning falls off our agenda, it costs us valuable time, resources, and effort. Without a good plan, we feel scattered.

In this episode, we'll walk through how to make the planning process a thrilling part of your every day routine so that your plans consistently lead to big results and ultimately to your highest, long-term goals.

We also explore:

  • What happens when you do and don't plan
  • Why you should always build failure into your plans, and
  • The 5 elements to crafting plans that both thrill and produce BIG results.

Ep #22: Using Your Core Gifts to Increase Your Income

December 20, 2018

One of the biggest struggles that the soul-guided entrepreneurs I work with encounter is making consistent income selling what their soul is guiding them to offer. It's easy to burn out and feel defeated in offering up - in the form of sales - our core gifts to the people we feel called to serve.

In this episode, I sit down with expert business coach Patty Lennon to discuss how tapping into our core gifts can increase our income. We take apart what it really means to run a soul-guided (or soul-infused) business and how to get your brain on board with your soul's plans and intentions.

Patty is a business coach, keynote speaker and best selling author that inspires audiences to lead and sell with passion and purpose.   She is an expert business coach that believes our businesses are not only a way to make money and contribute to our fellow humans but also a conduit for our soul’s evolution.

My discussion with Patty explores:

  • The need for white space in your calendar
  • How being your true self not only serves your audience better, but will make you more money
  • How to work less hours for more profit by limiting distractions and creating a soul guided business plan

Ep #20: So Thankful I Didn’t Cork Up

November 22, 2018

It’s episode #20, so that means it’s time to tell a story. I devote every 10th episode to telling a story. This episode is being released on Thanksgiving day, so I’m going to tell you the story of how I pulled off a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in Darfur against all odds and how my core gifts showed up to save the day.

Growing up on a farm with close family ties, Thanksgiving has always been a special time for me. When I was stationed in Darfur, I thought hosting Thanksgiving would be the perfect way for me to reach out and make new friends.

Not everyone thought it was a good idea, and like many of us, I was tempted to cork up. But thankfully I tapped into my core gifts to make it a Thanksgiving to remember.

Ep #19: Seeing Our Core Gifts Comes From Believing

November 8, 2018

We live in a world that tells us “we have to see it to believe it.” For something to be real or possible or true, we must have proof that it is real or true or possible. THEN, we have permission to believe it.

The core gift process requires us to reverse that thinking to: We have to BELIEVE it to SEE it. We can get caught in the trap that we need to see our core gifts before we can believe they're real. But until you believe in them, you will struggle to see the superpowers that are uniquely and expressly you.

In today’s episode we explore:

  • The responses I hear most often from clients after the first attempt to define their core gifts,
  • What rewards we receive when we believe in our core gifts, and
  • How we can stop second guessing our unique abilities.

Ep #16: The Secret to Up-leveling Our Natural Genius

October 11, 2018

We continue our deep-dive into the world of core gifts. In episode 13 and 14, we learned how to define core gifts and shadow gifts. In episode 15, we learned how to spend more of our days in expression of our core gifts.

Now, we shift to living deeper and leaning harder into our mastery. We’ve been taught from the youngest age that if we want to learn something we need to find that information outside of ourselves. Read a book. Take a class. Consult an “expert.”

But that’s not how you learn and up-level when we’re talking about core gifts. Because WE are the experts of our core gifts, we need to look inward, and not outward. 

In this episode, we explore:

  • Why up-leveling is so critical.
  • The secret to up-leveling our core gifts, and
  • Why up-leveling has to be uncomfortable
