Back in April of 2014, I had the joy and luck to be interviewed by Lila Simmons. I’ve had the download link forever, and yet…I avoided sending it out into the universe. It wasn’t that I didn’t love the conversation, but rather it was incredibly personal. But here it is! And I am stepping up […]
Every so often, I’ll receive an email from a potential client or a current client that says “I know you are so busy, but…” And you know what? It drives me absolutely BONKERS. Here’s the thing. I LOVE getting emails, I just HATE when they start with “sorry I know you’re busy”. This does three […]
Well over a decade ago, little Makenna was a junior in high school and was thrilled to high heaven to audition for the ‘fancy pants choir’ that was considered the elite of the elite in high school choir-dom. It was a long, drawn out process to even audition. There was the informational meeting that you […]
Nearly a year ago, a coach (on a freebie call) suggested that I focus my coaching practice on one, unique issue that a client might deal with. ONE. Thing. The suggestion was people feeling ‘stuck’ on sales pages, because it involved sales and creativity. And that tends to be my ‘sweet spot’. But the thing […]
All around the wilds of the interwebs people are touting the awesomeness of a morning routine–how it changed their productivity, made them happier, healthier, and higher functioning humans. The thing is? They are 100% on point. It is true. Routines have a way of defining us. And starting out your morning right? 100% super key. […]
Someone recently called me a renegade, and I thought that was hysterical. I suddenly had this vision of myself in a Xena Warrior Princess battle outfit, shouting a shrill battle cry into the ether. I shared this vision, and we laughed outloud that maybe that SHOULD be my next press photo. “That isn’t what I […]
Sometimes, the reason why you’re not making money has nothing to do with your abundance mentality. Sure, making sure you’re in alignment with abundance, and willing (super duper willing) to accept abundant wealth and happiness matters. It matters a whole ton. But it might not be the only reason you’re not selling your services.
This is a common battle cry from coaches: “You’re not making money because you’re not in alignment with an abundance mentality, it is your money blocks getting you down.”
Ok. Fine. This is totally true. And totally happens. This was the story of my life last year. So keep that at heart.
When I started this business a year ago, I called myself a ‘solopreneur’. In fact, I called myself that until just a few hours ago (as of writing this blog post). I found the word enticing, the idea that I was the sole business owner, and that I was ‘in it’ on my own. No more pesky people to manage, no more bosses that micromanaged my time and impeded on my genius. I was a free to roam ‘solopreneuer’–free to manage my time, travel, and have freedom. Nothing could stop me now.
I mean, using it seemed natural. There are hundreds of people who use it. Forbes uses it. There are over 230,000 hits when you google ‘solopreneur’
So despite its popularity, why did I cut ‘solo’ out of all my branding? My copy?
Because I’m not a ‘solopreneur’ and you’re not either.
Let’s face it…Starting a business is exciting, enthralling, and sometimes…terrifying. Want to know something super exciting? You aren’t the first person to feel that way. Nope! Not by a long shot. In fact…. Everyone has been in your shoes. They really have! Ok. Not your ACTUAL shoes, this is your proverbial, business shoes. Everyone, and […]
