Welcome to 2018!
January 2, huh, wow time flies! I remember in 2000 when 10-year-old Shaylene thought the world was going to end because of the millennium. How times have changed..
I hope your holidays were everything you wanted them to be and more.
With the start of the New Year, ambition is flowin' all around us. And New Year's resolutions are everywhere like confetti!
Shout out to those of you who made resolutions, I salute you! And I also hate to break the news...
80% of people make resolutions will give up on their goal by mid-February.
Knowing this, I believe it’s important to...
A) Feel the hype of the New Year and set JUICY goals (because it IS exciting!)
B) Have an action plan that sets you up for success beyond the timeframe of your new goal-especially if you have the tendency to fall off after a couple weeks.
Resolutions are about continued accountability and keeping promises to yourself.
Here are 5 things you can do to hold yourself accountable in...
There was a time in my business when I went through “a phase” of hiding.
Have you ever experienced this?...
Working in solitary as a solo-preneur
Trying in vain to figure everything out by yourself
Letting self doubt creep into your work sessions as you jump from one task to another.
I was occupying my time with all of the wrong tasks to generate clients and lost focus on the big picture of how I was going to reach my goals.
One of those things I was avoiding was doing Facebook Live...dearrrr lawrd the thought of it made me sweat.
Thing is, live video is what gets you FREE exposure, builds your brand and your business #winwin
Luckily, I put on my big girl pants and got over the fear to jump into going live 2-3x per week.
Don't get me wrong, I pacing around my office like an anxious cat for 7 minutes before hand:
“Can time speed up? I'm sweating. Does my hair look okay?"
“What will everyone think of me?"
" What if I sound like an idiot..."
It’s a real problem with Coaches & Service-Based Entrepreneurs and I want to pull you out of the rabbit hole so you can regain focus in your business.
Here’s what I see:
1) Scrolling through social media like our time on earth is renewable.
The scroll goes on for seconds, then minutes, and maybe (if you’re really committed) hours.
Picture after picture “Oh, that’s cool” …”
“WOW, I’d love to go on vacation here- where is this?”
Let me google that for a second….”
“Seriously? Nicaragua! That’s beautiful! Can I ride elephants there...?”
And into the Google hole, you go.
This is eating up your time and moving you in the opposite direction of your goals. If you're reading this, I know you want to help people, make an impact, and make money in your business.
The dark-google-abyss won't do this for you.
2) Watching your “following” numbers go up and down.
