Is your to-do list longer than your client list? Are you and your business suffering because you procrastinate?
Are you so overwhelmed that you can't even figure out what you need to do next? It doesn't have to be so tough! Together we can figure out what you need to do and what you need to NOT do!

You can gain the upper hand. Together we will figure out the best way for YOU to accomplish what you want to accomplish. Learn how to take your business (and your life) to the next level by focusing on the most important pieces and creating plans that not only make sense but that work for you.
I was speaking with a client the other day and the subject of branding came up. She felt that until she had thought out every detail of her business and offerings, she couldn’t say anything to anyone because she risked being “off brand”. Before I share the rest of our conversation let me say this…I’m not a branding expert. What I do know, however, is how to represent yourself. My [...]
When something comes up four times over the course of two days I know it’s serious. Entrepreneurs are lousy at taking care of themselves. Entrepreneurs routinely work long hours. Entrepreneurs often beat themselves up for not doing enough or not doing it well enough. Entrepreneurs have a misguided belief that they are the only person who could possibly do “it” right. Entrepreneurs feel guilty spending time relaxing when there’s so [...]

I said, “Does anyone have any questions for me?” The response, “Yes Carrie I do.

It’s like you’re throwing a temper tantrum. You know what you want to do. You know why you want to do it. You know how to do it. It’s important. The growth of your business depends on it. But, no matter what you do the three-year old kid inside of you is stomping his or her feet screaming “NO!” “NO! I will not do it!” “NO! Not now! I have [...]
Some say a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, others say a messy desk is a sign of genius. Driven by a “nagging Mom” and the 8th grade science fair, my sons’ friend, Nate set out to find the truth. Nate’s findings were that people perform better in a messy environment. More importantly, at least for Nate, he now has the ammunition he needs to stop his [...]
I don’t know about you but when I click on “send/receive” I feel like I have to brace myself for the onslaught…I think “NO! Please don’t download any more!!!” Recently one of my clients told me how excited she was because she brought the number of emails in her inbox down from 1,500 to 500.

Diane felt overwhelmed every time she looked at her to-do list. Diane knew that her to-do list was supposed to keep her on track, help her figure out what she wanted to do and keep her from feeling overwhelmed, but this wasn’t happening.
