Anything can happen in 90 days.

Anything can happen in 90 days.

Today's career tip: Set your goals and action items for the next 90 days. It's almost time for the new year so I want to let you in on a little secret. Don't just set New Year's Goals...set 90 day goals! If you are like me, goals for an entire year can get really overwhelming. They are often so big and scary that I forget to take action on them. Then, they just get lost in the hustle and bustle of everything else happening in my life. Until I started implementing 90 day plans. I love 90 days because 90 days is long enough to make big things happen but still short enough to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Both of my signature group coaching courses are broken into 90 day increments. I did this after working with so many clients and seeing BIG lightbulbs and awesome things all … [Read more...]

Self-education will make you a fortune.

Self-education will make you a fortune.

Today's career tip: Invest in educating yourself. Self-education is where it's at! I did the formal education routine. Got my MBA and a great job.  But, when it came time to start my own online business, I did most of the educating myself. It's funny because I talk to a lot of women who have their eye on business school or grad school because they feel like they should. But, when I ask them what they want to do after grad school...they have no idea. It was the same with me!  I had my eye on the top business schools and acing that darn GMAT. But, I had no idea what I was going to do after business school. Silly me! What is now making me a fortune is my own knowledge from reading a book almost every week for the last 5 years.  I created my own start-up school and I recommend you do … [Read more...]

So let me ask you three quick questions to help you prepare for this epic career and life changing event: 1) Are you currently getting results in your business? One of my biggest regrets is working far too long on my side business without knowing HOW I was going to make the leap to my dream business FULL-TIME. I felt completely stuck and I hated my day job. I really wanted to be my own boss and actually make an impact in the world. I worked on my blog whenever I had a free second. But, the problem was...my blog never made me one cent. It wasn't until I actually put together a solid marketing plan and sales funnel with my own coach that I … [Read more...]

It’s never too early to start planning for 2015.

It’s never too early to start planning for 2015.

Today's career tip: It's never too early to start planning for 2015. Start planning now for your best year EVER. There are still 45 days left of 2014 and this is by far the earliest I have ever created goals for the new year. I am usually the person who puts it all together on January 1st...after my new year's celebration. This year is different. I will be going on a three week vacation to Australia in December which has spurred me to start early. I also have a lot of exciting plans for my business in 2015. I want them all flushed out and on paper so when I get back on December 31st, I am ready to hit the ground running in my business. Someone asked me on Facebook the process I go through to plan the new year. So here you go! Hopefully this provides you with a template to follow … [Read more...]

Learn from someone who is where you want to be.

Learn from someone who is where you want to be.

Today's career tip of the day: Contact one person you don't know and ask for help. Trying to make your career or business goals happen by yourself can be tough.  The best investment I ever made is when I reached out to a coach who was where I wanted to be someday. My career and business transformed almost overnight when I got the right coaching and mentorship for myself. My coach made me dream bigger and really made me see all that I was capable of. That is why I highly recommend that you also get the support you need to help you become the woman that you are capable of. So what are your career goals and who can you reach out to TODAY to ask for help? *NEXT MONDAY*Have you ever thought of ditching Corporate America and starting your own business? Want to work less and make more? Then … [Read more...]

This is new

This is new

It's Anna here with my little helper.   We are coming to you this week from our own house which is a huge relief. You see, last week my husband got sick and we had to vacate the premises. Luckily, we headed to the grandparent's house nearby and I closed up my business for a few days. I am so grateful now that I can do that. I have structured my life, career and business around my family and my ideal lifestyle which allows me to make changes in case of emergencies like last week.  Problem is, I get a ton of emails from women who want to quit corporate too but don't know where to start. Or women who want to start their dream business but they have health benefits so they could never quit. Or moms who have a passion in (insert your passion here) but don't have any extra cash to survive … [Read more...]

Don’t let your job take over your life.

Don’t let your job take over your life.

Today's career tip comes directly from an article I read this morning. Click here to read. This article could be a wake-up call for you. JohnJerryson, 46, posted on a forum recently about his regrets in his life. He talks about how he's wasted his life and his ambitions. His job took over his life and he became an awful husband while being a money-making machine. If we aren't careful and very aware of the decisions we make in our careers, time can go by real fast. We realize we are still doing the same thing that we were doing last year. Not growing. Not learning. Not changing.  Just stuck. Be aware. Be conscious. Don't settle and please don't let your job take over your life. Here's to living a life of no regrets. … [Read more...]
