I Would Love to Hear From You

Choosing a designer or a coach can be a very personal decision (not to mention a very big leap)! I am more than happy to answer your questions. I want you to feel like you’re making the best decision possible for your brand.

Say Hello!

Let’s Stay Connected. I’m always offering up inspiration and business growth tips through my blog and social channels. I’d love to get to know you there.

I was just having this conversation this morning with @innerfire_wellness and then this post pops up!

It’s a strange time right now with some people literally without work and NOT super busy. And some crazy busy can’t catch their breathe.
In “normal days,” most of us have a compulsion. Our society has created a need to be busy to show our worth. Take a look at the deeper belief hidden underneath. Beliefs unconsciously course through us like:

If you aren’t busy, then you’re lazy.

If you aren’t busy, then you must be struggling to make it.

If you aren't busy, then there must be more you could be doing.

If you aren’t busy, then you are not working hard enough to get ahead.

If you aren’t busy, then you aren’t valuable.

If you aren’t busy, then you aren’t trying hard enough to please everyone around you.

I encourage you to look at where these beliefs come from. Is this something you learned from your family? A boss? A personal expectation? And, more importantly, how are they stifling your soul? What can you start to do to turn that belief around? Especially if you have more time than normal on your hands right now. What do you want to reframe?

CAREER MOMENTUM
When I graduated with a graphic design degree I knew it wouldn’t be my gig forever. I enjoyed it and it entertained me but I knew there was something more. After a few years and some serious burnout I started researching my options. Exploring what I felt was missing. Putting the pieces of my passions together to decide what I wanted next. I stumbled upon the field of coaching 14 years ago. I didn’t know it existed before I started looking.
What else might possible for you that you don’t even know exists yet?
If you were doing the same thing in 10 years as you are today ... would you be happy? (Current world situation aside) If not, today is the best time to put change in motion. How much time have you already let pass being miserable in a job you hate? Find your daily momentum!

Sometimes you’re planting seeds, and sometimes you’re making sales. When you’re planting seeds, they need to be nurtured. In those moments when you’re talking with someone who is interested in what your business has to offer, but they can’t afford it right now or aren’t quite ready to commit yet, you’ve planted a seed. Now, you need to set up a system to track how often to check in with them and follow up. Rest assured, multiple follow ups aren’t nagging to potential clients! We all get busy and we all need multiple points of contact to have a clear head to make a decision.

When you follow up with them, sometimes they will be interested and sometimes they won’t be. But either way, it is your job to keep those leads warm and nurtured until they turn into a sale or share they're not interested. You can do that by tracking them using a CRM (SalesForce, ZenDesk, HubSpot, etc.) which will do most of the work for you, but will cost money. But if you’re starting out and don’t have the budget to invest in a CRM, you can simply use a DIY spreadsheet or progress boards in a program like Asana to track the leads you need to nurture, noting the last time you reached out to them and when you need to do so next.

Whatever method you decide to utilize, the goal is to create an organized system for follow-through by nurturing your leads and creating a trust factor.

This principle is so true in business - you market to what people seek, not necessarily what they need. But, it's also wildly true in personal relationships, too. This comes down to tough conversations with friends, spouses and family. What they need to hear isn't always aligned with the truth they're seeking. You have to strike a balance to truly connect with them. Sometimes people just need support. Sometimes they need truth. Be mindful enough to know the difference.

Burn out is the real deal. I see it again and again with my clients (and I have totally been there myself). Don’t ignore the warning signs that your body gives you. That’s right, those headaches or heart palpitations or stomach issues are probably not just a fluke. They’re likely happening more regularly than you think they are. When I was at my peak of burn out, I was having heart palpitations and chronic sore throats. My mind went to the worst-case scenario. I went to my MD and he did EKG tests and a blood panel. All came back normal. I was perplexed because my symptoms were very real. I then went to see a naturopathic doctor and he told me I was stressed. I was in disbelief. I didn’t feel stressed. In fact, I felt I should be doing even more! After making a few major tweaks in my lifestyle, BAM…my symptoms were gone completely.

When you push yourself to the max and then beyond, your internal signals to slow down become louder and louder. Like blowing up a balloon, it gets bigger and bigger. Until it pops. That pop can look different for everyone. For some, it means depression. For other anxiety. It could look like sickness or disease or chronic colds. Others get even more severe physical problems internally or externally.
You owe it yourself to listen to your body. Explore your symptoms of stress. Of chronic fatigue. Of burn out. If you don't have a self-care plan in place, now is a great time to start. Consider how much downtime you need each day. What brings you joy? What type of schedule would be helpful to have in place so you have structure? What do you need to do to take care of yourself?
