I’m tired of seeing good people struggle in biz… so I’m going to get a little open and vulnerable about some recent experiences Sharing my story and little ‘metaphor’ might help you in your entrepreneurial struggles… and if so, then it’s well worth it for me to ‘bare all’ and tell you my embarrassing moments, haha 🙂 Mike & I have been speaking a lot at business events and doing video interviews lately.  There have been many videos and pictures taken.  With each picture or video I look at, my heart sinks as there is one thing starring me down… […]

  • MYP_LeadGenMachine_WebSlider-REVISED4

Online Marketing & The Most Important Mindset Shift You MUST MAKE… I spent a lot of time this week speaking with potential clients and during these conversations I noticed a common thread running throughout most of what they were saying and thinking about marketing and online marketing.  What I was hearing was so surprising to me that I just had to sit down and write about what I was seeing. What I was hearing from these entrepreneurs was that they are all looking at and thinking of their marketing as a separate component of their business almost more like a […]

Childbirth, Beer, Louis Pasteur & Online Marketing Every day we are hearing more and more about how marketing and online marketing are changing and you may be thinking, “Oh great another blog about ‘engagement” but I promise you I will NOT bore you with any marketing ‘jargon’ or passed around fluff.  What I do want to share is that although we are inundated daily with the truth that things are definitely changing and if we are to survive in business we better make some shifts as well I am still seeing so many businesses and entrepreneurs clinging to the ‘old […]

    Is Learning The Art of Business Keeping You From REAL Success?

My wife Robin and I were at church and a guest Pastor was sharing a story that really intrigued me and stirred some great wonderings and ideas in me.  He was talking about his high school days and he mentioned that he was very active in sports but the high school he attended required athletes to participate in a sport year round.  Football players could play football during the fall but had to play baseball, golf or track during the spring season.  The man explained that he was a basketball player (fall season) and during the spring he couldn’t figure […]

I’m sure you’ve heard the term permission-based marketing and you know that the ‘normal’ definition of permission based marketing is “The practice of sending marketing communications only to recipients who have given their consent to receive them” … but today’s article isn’t going to be about something that boring, haha 🙂 I wanted to take that term and put a fun little twist on it to make it mean something much deeper, much more powerful, and to mean something so impactful that it could very well change the way you do business forever.  Curious?   I’ll start out the life-changing, […]

5 Startling Reasons Why ‘Free’ is the Most Expensive Way to Grow Your Business

  • free_stuff

Free is quite a deceptive little sneaky one. Free entices us, lures us in, and makes us believe we’re getting more than we should be.  Free things get us so excited.  Free training and resources make us feel like we’ve got some kind of inside edge and we got away with something.  The psychology behind free stuff is quite interesting.  Getting something for nothing typically activates a human response that’s so much different than a normal business transaction — it just feels better. I think we’re just hardwired to love free stuff. We get a rush just thinking about the […]

My husband Mike has an insane RC airplane and helicopter hobby. He’s got a whole fleet of aircraft. And let me tell you this adventure of building the fleet has been quite a frustrating and expensive hobby, sucking thousands of dollars out of our bank account.  Every single time we loaded the family up in the car to go to the park to fly, there was the excitement, the anticipation… and then the crash.  Each flight usually ended with a trip to the hobby store and a large purchase.  His very first airplane was only $100.  The first flight went […]

How You Can Triple Your Income & Influence by Giving Grace

  • integrity matters for making business connections
  • judging

People are watching you, integrity matters. Do you believe that statement to be true?  Have you ever said that out of your mouth and projected that belief onto other people?  I believe it’s true.  And I’ve said it to other people too.  I’ve even proclaimed it adamantly from the rooftops in opposition of someone’s poor behavior.  But recently I’ve had some great lessons taught to me (by my own mistakes) and I have seen a deeper look into this mentality that may surprise you.  It may convict you and humble you.  It may make you mad and disagree.  It may […]

Successful Women Wear Platforms

Women are wired to care. We want to empower everyone, help everyone and make the world beautiful and happy. That’s what we were created to do. That’s what makes us so fabulous! Right now the world is hungry for real, genuine people who really care about them – so it’s definitely an opportune time for women in business. Women who are owning those qualities, and taking that passion and God-given characteristic and bringing it into their businesses are absolutely killing it – literally making millions of dollars doing what they were born to do, and loving every minute of it.
