It wasn’t very long ago -- sitting here at this exact same desk -- that instead of feeling excited, passionate, and flooded with opportunity like I am nowadays...
...I felt stuck. Overwhelmed. Unsure of what to do next.
And I don’t say that just to sound dramatic or to win sympathy. There are plenty out there who had it far worse than I did, but that’s really how I felt. Like there was something more for me, yet it remained always outside my reach.
It seems many successful entrepreneurs seem to experience something similar prior to their “big break”.
For me there was no shortage of ideas to pursue, but a shortage of clarity on knowing how to proceed in order to create an online business like I enjoy today.
“Clear as mud” I think the saying is.
So what changed everything for me?
Well two things:
Ultimately I realized that “imperfect action” beats “perfect...
Many of us as healers, spiritual guides, and experts are doing business in new ways as part of the global shift. As we follow our dreams and create our unique path as we go, often times being financially supported becomes up as one of the main priorities on our minds. Will the right clients show up?

What is the big secret to sales?
I know that question alone can be uncomfortable, especially for those of us who don't want to be 'sales-y' or feel like we have to manipulate people with the right words in order to get them to buy something from us (YUCK!).
More importantly, how can you generate trust with people?
Your ability to be authentic and real is truly your greatest sales strategy.
In case you were looking for ONE MORE THING TO DO (smile).... here is something to consider about your email communications.
Email lists are how you actively reach out to connect with anyone who is interested in what you teach, share, sell, or offer - obvious, right?
As your work grows and diversifies, there are solid reasons for having more than one email list in order to stay connected with people and their needs.
Check out why creating separate email lists is advantageous as you grow your audience - and why it will reduce your unsubscribes because you are staying focused on what your audience needs.
In the long-run, you will most likely want three formats for your books: ebooks, paperbacks, and audiobooks.
Perhaps you already know that and have it on your never-ending To-Do list. Some authors prefer hardback versions, too.
In this video, I share with you the reasons WHY each of these 3 formats matter for your author platform, revenue channels, and professional expansion.
I hope this helps you prioritize and stay focused on what you are creating for the long-term.
