WHAT keeps stopping you, slowing you down on getting in your way of HAVING what you really want?

(ADHD or not… the answer is usually the same)
I ask this question of my potential clients who come to me because they are ready to move to the next level in their business.
It’s also the same questions I ask my current clients who gets stuck.
We ALL Get STUCK from time to time but do want to know what the #1 answer is I hear from 99% of folks?
“I can’t stay FOCUSED” – OR – “I keep getting DISTRACTED”…
 
DISTRACTIONS or “not being able to FOCUS” is the number #1 KILLER of our success!  (in our business, our lives, our health, our relationships, our careers and the list goes on!)
So my blog this week is about…

The REAL Reasons we get DISTRACTED & the Proven Ways to GET FOCUSED!


First of all, we may not realize this but FOCUS is a limited resource.

YUP!  We keep trying to find “more” FOCUS when we have used it all up on something else.

Knowing that it’s limited, you have to CHOOSE what you want to use it for.

Here are some causes of “DISTRACTIONS” which cause us to use up our FOCUS resource and have nothing left for what we thought we wanted it for.

1.  You are using up your FOCUS on the wrong things – 

According to Psychology Today, “Every time you focus your attention you use a measurable amount of glucose and other metabolic resources. Studies show that each task you do tends to make you less effective at the next task, and this is especially true for high-energy tasks like self control or decision making so distractions really take their toll.”

FIX – “Know” that your FOCUS is limited and actually make conscious choices to how you want to use it. A daily plan could act like a checkbook register for how you want to spend your FOCUS.

2.  It might not be IN YOU to actually get it done – 

Another conversation I have a lot, including when I’m talking to my son which he working 6 days a week at his intensive summer sales job is about trying to force yourself to do something that really isn’t IN YOU to do…

 If something is not in line with your internal values (and you may not even know what those are) then no matter how hard you try to do something,

SOMETHING ELSE will always seem to get in the way.

So while you are beating yourself up over and over again for “not getting something done”, the truth is… that your values are talking to your brain and preventing you from doing it.

And now you are exhausted and feel worthless and wonder “why can’t I just get that done?”.

FIX – I suggest you get in tune with what those values are and create your to-do list from things that will SUPPORT what you truly want to accomplish and not what you THINK you SHOULD BE doing. A “Values” test through a coach or the “The Passion Test” which we do for our Get Your IPA On clients is a great resource.

3.  “Winging It” is NOT a Plan – 

We get up, have an idea of what needs to happen, make the coffee, start getting ready for the day and you head to the office (in home or out) and 3 hours surprisingly pass and you have NO IDEA what happened. You were working, you were busy and you knew there was something you NEEDED to do because you couldn’t sleep the night before thinking about it. But something else happened, something went wrong, someone had a problem for you to solve, the traffic was bad or the dog got sick, who knows….

If you aren’t planning out your day, IN WRITING, and the things you are planning are not in line with your biggest priorities and your values, it really isn’t going to get done unless you just happen to get lucky.

FIX – Have a DAILY plan, a weekly plan and an overall VISION/MISSION for your life and business at a minimum. We focus on 30 days and 90 days at a time with our clients at My Personal Business Coach because we are working on adding an extra 6 figures to our business each year.

Your Daily Plan should have specific STEPS that are moving your vision/mission and GOALS forward and they should be quantifiable. (you should be able to “measure” them.)

4.  It’s Not In the Calendar – 

I created the Daily Success Planner after having thousands of people love the Weekly Success Planner. I’m a master at getting things done… but only when it’s IN MY PLANNER.

When I started working with my Health Coach, I agreed to drink a greenie each day. But each time I met with her, I had accomplished a LOT each week but that was the one thing that never happened. SOMETHING always got in the way. We were both stumped!

She called me one day and very loudly said “I figured it out!”. You are NOT drinking your greenies because there’s no place in your new Daily Success Planner for this. She said she “knew that I didn’t do anything unless it was in my planner”…  We discovered that I had incorporated the self-care piece in my Weekly Success Planner but didn’t carry it over to the Daily Planner.

SO, as you will see, PRIORITY #2 is now “ZEN” which is the place I put that one simple thing I can do for myself each day.

FIX – If it’s not worth tracking, it’s not worth doing. SCHEDULE what is important to you and hold that appointment with yourself. Give it the importance it deserves.

5.  The Oreo’s Have Voices! – 

One of my philosophies on how help our clients is to use the “OREOS IN THE PANTRY” method. That’s how I explain to my clients about what I do to help them. ELIMINATING the distractions are important. No one has the perfect willpower, 100% of the time.

If I was a health coach and we were cutting out sugar, we would throw the oreos OUT because we all know that they start calling our name from the pantry in the middle of the night.

I help my clients determine what the “oreos” are in their business and their life that are preventing them from accomplishing things that move their business forward.

FIX – You have to ask yourself the question “what got in my way this time?” and really think about it. Figure out what your “oreos” are and then throw them out, or give them away to someone really skinny 🙂

Brand New BLOG Just Released!
By  Shelley Mitchell

Being TOTALLY ADHD with a Capital H, I had a very roller coaster life and career of STARTING everything and finishing NOTHING…

Now, as an expert in helping entrepreneurs and business owners turn their Passion into successful, PROFITABLE businesses, I’m a certified Business Coach and ADHD Coach, and even built a 6 figure business in my first full year and multiple 6 figures businesses thereafter… oh, and published 2 books.

 

Guess what!? 

I’m still totally ADHD -and- even though I might seem a bit unorganized at times and ALL over the place, the TRUTH IS that I get MORE DONE in one day than most people do in a week!

 

Here’s are the 10 signs to see if you are a PROCRASTINATOR and the #1 thing I do personally to get so much done!

 

(straight from Procrastinators Anonymous)  Compulsive procrastinators may not have all the signs listed here, but if you identify with many of these characteristics, you are probably a compulsive procrastinator.

1.    We keep disappointing other people and ourselves by not keeping our promises.

2.    Difficulty getting started on new projects or transitioning from one project to another.

3.    Poor Sense of Time – USUALLY LATE – chronically underestimating or overestimating how long a task will take us to complete.

4.    Difficulty organizing projects by breaking them down into steps; we don’t know where to start, even when we’re willing to start.

5.    Surrounded by clutter and disorganization in our homes and work spaces.

6.    We are regularly late for appointments.

7.    We are acutely aware of what we should be doing, or think we should be doing, and oddly out of touch with what we actually want and need.

8.    Trouble saying “NO” to requests from others, and instead express our resentment through the passive resistance of procrastination.

9.    Demand Resistance, (do what?)  We do anything and everything except the one thing we most need to do.

10.    Short-term thinkers, focusing on short-term pleasure while ignoring long-term well-being.  (if you don’t have a written daily plan or even a business/marketing strategy, you might be a PROCRASTINATOR)

OMG, after reading this list, that was/is SOOOOO ME!

But I have figured out the SECRET to tricking myself every single day.

While there are a lot of things that go into having a successful business, IMPLEMENTATION is the one biggest one you need to have.

Without, VISION, IMPACT, Marketing Strategies & Tactics and Systems in place, it could get a little messy but if you don’t take ACTION on what you need to do, it will NEVER happen.

The IMPLEMENTATION piece is where most people fall short.

So what is my SECRET WEAPON?  Or the weapon against my procrastinating nature…?

The answer is:  TIME BLOCKING!

Yes, Time Blocking!  This is my very tight-leash I put on myself.  Even my man knows to put the time we want to spend time together INTO my calendar.

If it’s NOT in my calendar, then it doesn’t happen, period…. 

WHY?  Because I’m so tough on myself?  Absolutely Not…

If I don’t put it in my calendar, I will FORGET everything, maybe even my name so time blocking keeps me on track with everything including:

•    what I was doing,

•    what I need to do,

•    what’s next

•    where I need to be,

•    what time I need to leave,

•    who I need to call and even simply,

•    how to plan my life

TIME BLOCKING – simplified

Color Coding –

Some people may think putting EVERYTHING in your calendar can be visually overwhelming, so I make sure I COLOR CODE my activities.

Also, when cash flow seems to be “slow” or I something seems to be going the wrong direction, I can easily look at the overall picture and see “by the COLOR” where I was spending most of my time.

The answer to my problems usually shows itself very quickly in the colors.

Here are the colors I personally use but I suggest you use what makes sense to your brain-style and your life.

  • GREEN – a potential or current CLIENT or JV (anything that may contribute to being an income producing activity)
  • BLUE – IN PERSON… Since I do a lot of my work on the phone or online, I needed a way to differentiate an “IN PERSON” appointment.  This way, I know if SPANX or mascara is going to be required…ahead of time and I’m not rushing around trying to find the two
  • PURPLE – anything personal from a doctors appointment to attending a party to my DATE NIGHT (and yes, I block out date night)
  • AQUA BLUE – anything requiring me to travel away from home/office.  Typically AQUA BLUE references the beach or ocean or a VACATION but since I made sure that I work the majority of my trips around my business.  So, whether I’m going to Hawaii for 2 weeks for vacation (which I’m sure to book a speaking engagement or something business related when I go.) or I’m traveling to my mastermind in St. Pete or speaking in Texas, it’s ALL AQUA BLUE.  I love to travel, meet new people and see new things, so this category gets my favorite color.
  • CORAL – this is an appointment where I’m getting COACHED or TRAINED or am working on business operations.  Its my own business development or personal development.  My call with Dustin Matthews or Dave VanHoose (my business and speaking coaches) is CORAL and my PLANNING TIME allocated SOLELY for the development of my business is all CORAL.  For me to do my blog, I have to block out the time to work on it – OR – IT DOESN’T GET DONE…  As I’m writing this, I’m in a CORAL block…
  • RED! – this means DO NOT FORGET, DO NOT CHANGE, SOOOOO IMPORTANT….. whether it’s my one day event “Speak Sell Serve Live” which is blocked out of my calendar, my private masterminds I’m doing with my clients or personal commitment like the Training Committee with Junior League of Boca Raton, this is RED in my calendar, so I know that it’s NOT flexible, not negotiable and MUST ATTEND.
  • YELLOW – is tentative.  These are things that I would LIKE to do.  They show up as “open” and not marked as “busy” until I make it so.  I actually keep a separate calendar in Google with all of the ongoing networking events locally and in the towns we want to expand our presence, and when I see availability for me to attend, I BOOK IT.  My team knows that these are things we would “like to” do but if a client has an urgent need or we have a potential client to work with, they can OVERWRITE this area.  It’s all about PRIORITIZING.
  • GRAY – this is my gray area.  I block out my “get ready” time and my driving time to get to appointments so I don’t get caught the ADHD’ers most common trait of doing “just one last thing” and end up late again.

ALARMS/ REMINDERS!

I add pop-up reminders and alarms for important things, so I don’t lose track of time and for the most part.

Also, everything is usually blocked out in 1-hour increments.

LABELS!

I also add “labels” in my appointments like “SS” for Strategy Session or “CC” for Current Client so if I need to do a “SEARCH”, all of my history can be pulled up at a moments notice.

Having the information on your history, your future, and your productivity is HUGE and will be the key thing to adding $$$$ to your bottom line.

You CAN be an IMPLEMENTER!

This all may or may not make complete sense to you, so I suggest you analyze how your brain works and create systems that work for you.

First, there is NO SYSTEM IN THE WORLD that works for EVERYONE!  

Also, It takes 21 days of CONSISTENT use to form a habit so you can’t do it for a week and then say “it didn’t work.”

By the way, before my son left to college, we blocked out every Monday from 3:30 to 5 pm and it was HIS TIME.  If he wanted me to go to the grocery store with him or just sit outside and talk, it didn’t matter.  It was his time, and everything else was OUT of that moment.

He ultimately chose it to work on his topics for his TV show and brainstorm ideas for his business, school, etc. (which, of course, is my gift) but it didn’t matter.  If he chose to bake cookies together, then that’s what we would do.

IMPLEMENT and BE IN THE MOMENT!

The bottom line is that you have to live life IN THE MOMENT you are in.  You can’t be IN one moment, yet thinking about another.  It’s not fair to YOU, your clients or the people you love. (I’ve theoretically known this but Sharon Wacks imprinted this in my head several years ago)

With that being said, your brain does NOT have the capacity to PARK all that information all at once, to draw from, at any given notice.  So STOP trying to make it work that way and then beat yourself up for forgetting things and not getting things done.

If you find yourself NOT reaching your goals in your business and any of these things resonate with you, I’d like to offer you a GIFT of a “CATAPULT Your Cash Flow” Session with one of my Master IMPLEMENTATION Coach-sultants.

My Son had a run-in with the COPS again!
Can you join me and my friends, Jim and Lucas, tonight? I SPENT ALL WEEKEND working on putting all this together to get out to you JUST so that you wouldn’t miss this! And now I’m ready to scream!

I still haven’t figured out how to AUTOMATE this piece yet!  (and am waiting on COMCAST to come because my INTERNET, TV and PHONE all died Friday afternoon right in the middle of working with a client!  Aghhhh!

(I tweeted them… NO Response… their internet must be down too!)When I talked to my good friends, Jim Hohl and Lucas Garvin, the other day and they agreed to a PART of my Expert Teaching team for my 6 week signature program “Get Your IPA On!”, I was jumping up and down at Bloomingdales!  (that’s where I was when I talked to him as I tried to squeeze in some birthday shopping for one of my coaches, after a Boca Chamber Luncheon.)

Over 150 business owners and entrepreneurs have gone through my program in the last 18 months and 100% our graduates are Making MORE MONEY – GUARANTEED -! (click here to learn more)

You HAVE TO MEET THESE GUYS!  Not only are they 2 amazing,  genuine guys but they are Co-Founders of Visify LLC, and they DO the part that I AM MISSING!  (I certainly know how to pick my friends:-)  (JOIN ME TONIGHT!)

They are the KEY I’ve been looking for in my program for Module 4 – Systems & Organization – to bring to my clients since as “automation” has saved my life, but there is still a missing link I NEED IN MY BUSINESS as well!

I could go on and on about what makes them DIFFERENT (which you will discover for yourself tonight) but FIRST THING I immediately notices when I first met them last year was that one of the 2 of them was a sweet, unassuming TEEN 18-year-old entrepreneur, and they had just had their first SIX FIGURE MONTH! – yes, that was NOT A TYPO!

Jim, who you will LOVE, agreed to join me tonight for a FREE TRAINING WEBINAR, and give us all an appetizer on

“How to put your Marketing on AUTOPILOT”!
Please CLICK HERE TO JOIN ME tonight for this one-time only FREE WEBINAR where you will DISCOVER…

  • WHY they re-branded even when they were doing GREAT and
  • HOW We Can Put This Marketing, $hit on AUTO PILOT so we can stop working WEEKENDS!

Jim Hohl & Lucas Garvin with Visify
(Sunday – 7 pm eastern – DON’T MISS THIS!) CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR FREE SPOT on this webinar

BTW, I already have a personal appointment with Jim this week because once I can get all of my MARKETING ON AUTOPILOT, I’m GOING TO PARIS, dammit!  

But in the meantime, I can spend more time with the two guys I love the most, Caleb and Dan! (and spend less time cursing Comcast!)

Oh, which reminds me!  I almost forgot to tell you about Caleb, my 19-year “entrepreneur” son, HAD A RUN IN WITH THE COPS AGAIN!  He’s in Dallas working for the summer and this time, it was different!

I wrote about it in my blog… so here ya go…hot off the press…  Have a great rest of the weekend!

To you SUCCESS!

I’m pissed! The summer is here after surviving my baby being gone away to college for his freshman year.  He was supposed to come home, so this is NOT what I was expecting!

“Baby” equals 6 ft. 2 in., 19 yr-old love of my life who decided to take a crazy door-to-door sales job in Dallas for the summer!  Are you kidding me?  He said to me “But I’m 18 now ma’ and I can do what I want…”.  I couldn’t believe my ears or my heart!

Reading this, you may or may know not know our story.   Many of my friends and clients know all the details as I’m an open book but…

My son, Caleb Sessions, published 3 books, had a TV show and spoke on stages at events, conferences and more from the ages of 16 to 18. He also has spent the last year away at college the at the University of South Florida in Saint Pete and also working for the Speaking Empire.

No big deal, right?! There are tons of brilliant teenagers out there.  Many of them graduating with 5.0 GPAs, now studying pre-law or pre-med with plans to save the world.

To me, as a mom who has gone to hell and back with this kid, it’s a big deal.

At 12, his dad died. All went downhill after that. By the time he was 16, he was failing school, was overweight, had untreated ADHD, had few friends and had been arrested.  I was a single mom who had lost my house after being laid off from a high-level Vice President position in corporate and had taken a job where I had settled, just to make ends meet. The ends weren’t meeting very well either.At the time, I thought he was lazy. Everyone did.  But after he was diagnosed with ADHD, I was totally baffled. He was never a problem, and he never got into anything. He never really did anything. He never took action; he didn’t implement.

He never put effort into anything at all. Totally opposite of his mother who takes action so quickly that I have been compared to “Tigger” or the “Tasmanian devil”, or a rocket that takes off even before looking both ways to cross the street.Neither of these personality traits is very good for you. Believe it or not, they are both traits of someone with ADHD.

Many people who have recently come into our lives the last two years, who didn’t know where we came from, may argue that he’s “lucky” to have a mom who is a “business coach” and that’s why he’s had success with speaking and becoming an author publishing 3 books.

Our close friends know the truth, LOL, I couldn’t even get him to take the trash out!

You could also argue that maybe it’s why he has sold over 1,000 books, one at a time while he was still in high school.

Or maybe that’s what got him into college? (Hmm, he still hasn’t passed the WRITING part of his SAT’s! or Math class, the first time around anyway.)

Maybe that’s what got him his social media director position at the Speaking Empire? Maybe that’s what made him want to go take a door-to-door sales job for the summer in Dallas to make extra money for school?

Not! He knew damn well when he told me he wasn’t coming home for the summer that I would be an emotional mess.

All year long, I looked forward to him coming home for the summer. (My friends have me on a peanut-butter-M&M-Watch ever since he left for Dallas)

This last year was one of the hardest years of my life being away from him.   While I was really proud of him, I’ve been so worried about him as well.

But once I realized I couldn’t manipulate or “guilt” him into staying, I knew I needed to be supportive and to be a “COACH” and not the crazy-ass mom that I can be (& who has even written about in school).

So before he left, I did a “Business Breakthrough Strategy Session” with him, just like I do with new and potential clients.   I took off my crazy–ass-mom hat and put on action-oriented, find-your-focus, Business and Adhd Coach hat.

Just as I did two years ago with him when he started this journey, I went through the same process I do with my potential clients and current clients.   As hard as it was to want even to be supportive because I wanted him home with me, I helped him determine what he really really wanted to accomplish from taking the summer job.

His GOALS really shook me up!We created a direction, a GPS per se, for where he wanted to go. It’s not just about the money even though he did set money goals; we got very specific on many of the things that he wanted to accomplish.

Here’s the Step-By-Step process of what we did: (and that will work for ANYONE if you follow it)

  • First, knowing this was a 3 1/2 months stint, we had to be very clear, very specific and have an action list of exactly what to do to reach these goals
  • Second, we determined what hidden challenges have continued to get in his way in the past and what could get in the way of what we had just said we wanted.
  • Third, we created a REAL PLAN that would work for his unique brain-style, his life, and what he knew would work for him; not some cookie-cutter bullshit plan that most people/coaches/programs give you that doesn’t take into account the times when shit happens, not “if” it happens.
  • Fourth, we determined what resources and education he needed but we also determined what education and resources he did not need.

This way he could stay focused on what was important, so bright and shiny objects weren’t constantly distracting him.

 

The problem with most entrepreneurs is that bright and shiny objects are constantly distracting them.

 

They don’t know what to say yes to and what to say no to, so they’re either saying yes and no to the wrong things, or they say yes to everything or no to everything. None of those is going to work out well.

  • And finally I use the step of mastering your psychology. Sometimes this happens daily and sometimes it’s just weekly but he has made sure that he has the resources and support in place for when his mindset tries to take a hold of the best of him.
The first month he was in Dallas, he actually got to know some of the police officers on a first name basis!  He has been STOPPED by the COPS every week since he has been there!People, in general, seem live in FEAR, warranted or not, but NOT KNOWING who my son is, some of them had freaked out when he knocked on their door.  He wasn’t doing anything wrong.   He was just doing his job (is wearing an ORANGE vest and has a permit to be there) but other people had fears and issues with someone knocking on their door.

FEAR causes us to MISS OUT on something good when it’s staring us right in the face.
Oh, what I wouldn’t give right now to see my son standing on my door step!There was actually a murder in the neighborhood where he was a couple of weeks ago!  I was a mess and wanted him HOME.  With all the nervousness going on around him, he actually made a couple of sales.   That is not what I would say is an “optimal selling environment” though.

He has been cursed at and yelled at, and today he was walking around in 105-degree heat, wondering DAILY if he made the right decision. 

The long-distance away has even contributed to his break-up with his girlfriend, and he had been stuck out in the middle of multiple thunderstorms with his rain jacket I had bought for him before he left.
(this is the meme I texted him when he wanted to QUIT)But he has done his very best to keep his head screwed on straight knowing it’s only 3 1/2 months.

 
He’s there for very specific goals and a purpose so even though his own fears, doubts, and anxieties kick in, HE HAS A PLAN.   So what’s the moral of the story?

Well, it’s two-fold. Maybe three-fold.

The first month and a half, he wanted to quit every single day. It was ugly. He probably made $400 the first 45 days. Sound familiar?But now, he is often earning $2,000.00 a week!  (yes, as a 19-year-old)

So how does a kid, who was told by others (including statistics) he would never amount to anything, pull this one off?

Here’s why, so we can do it too!

  1. First, he’s CONSISTENT. (even when he’s tired, hot and just saw the cops again, he knocks on ONE MORE door)
  2. He keeps his MINDSET in check.  He has somebody with him every day who stays positive and supports him (a team leader is by his side and he calls me when necessary).
  3. Most importantly, he IMPLEMENTS.

He takes action because he prioritizes his business as if he only has 3 1/2 months to reach his goal.

 

He doesn’t pack up at the end of the day and mope about it and then waste time the next day trying to re-group.

 

He gets back OUT THERE immediately after having a setback.

 

 

 

 

If we prioritized our businesses as if we only had 3 1/2 months to accomplish our goals, we would…

  • truly STOP WHINING about what we aren’t accomplishing.
  • stop “researching” everything before taking action.
  • stop waiting for “perfect”.
  • stop complaining that our family members or friends aren’t supporting us.
  • stop complaining that we don’t have enough time, don’t have enough money, and don’t have enough blah blah.
  • just get this shit done and move on.

Top-notch college kids were recruited all over the country for this summer job, but I’m finding out that almost 50% have already been sent home or left on their own because they couldn’t handle it.

So what makes a kid who has never passed a math class the first time around, who has ADHD, whose dad died, was raised by a single too-busy-for-him, crazy ass mom, leave to Texas with only a plane ticket, 1 suitcase, and $20 in his pocket HAVE SUCCESS yet again?

Note… in an environment where mom isn’t around to help, and no one is really there to pick up the pieces.

It’s Simple. The ANSWER is knowing what your vision is, having a plan, and implementation.

Yes, we talk every day and sometimes, I have to be a coach and sometimes, I have to be a mom.  And while I’m freaked out most days as a mom, I’m so incredibly proud of him for staying true to his values and for following his passion and purpose. (even when others tell him he will fail)

So if the answer is simple, then why do business owners, and entrepreneurs keep STRUGGLING so much?

  • If you are floundering, one of these three (vision, real plan, or implementation) are missing, I can guarantee it.
  • If you aren’t making the money you deserve, one of the three is missing.
  • If your business sucks, one of the three are missing!
  • If you have a lackluster life in other areas, one of the three is missing.
  • If you are working a full-time job and that’s not working out so well, one of these three are missing, and most likely much of this is not in line with what your true values are.

It’s TIME to IMPLEMENT and the time is NOW!

Happy Midweek! and happy MID-YEAR!
I’m super excited with the influx of new clients we’ve had join our C-Suite Mastermind and our CATAPULT Coaching Program and the great journey we are embarking on with them to help them GROW their businesses and make MORE MONEY!

It seems as if people either DIDN’T have a real PLAN this year and are really tired of NOT GETTING where they wanted to go in their business – OR – they had a plan but have figured out that they just DON’T KNOW HOW to “implement”… 

As an expert Business Coach and ADHD Coach, the BIGGEST CHALLENGE I’m seeing right now with small business owners (especially those who have):
  • HIRED other coaches, or spent money with coaching companies/programs,
  • KNOW or finally realized they are EXPERTS in their PASSION,
  • want to start SPEAKING and teaching and even write a book (or wrote a book)
  • bought new “systems”,
  • invested in more training,
  • sought out coaching certifications,
  • invested in a new website,
  • got a LOGO and got branded and
  • the LIST OF EXPENSES goes on and on and on…..
… is that they are still BROKE! 

All that! and they either don’t have enough clients, enough money, enough time or are just WORKING THEIR ASSES OFF and can’t get off the hamster wheel!

SOOOOO, with that INSPIRATION, my BLOG is BORN….

(Hope You ENJOY!)

“If I’m Such An “EXPERT” then WHY Am I Still BROKE?

By Shelley MItchell

You know you have a MESSAGE and something GREAT to share with the world SO WHY do you have such a hard time getting others to understand it, want it even or even pay you for it?

Here are my tips on HOW TO POSITION YOURSELF AS AN EXPERT and also have a PROFITABLE BUSINESS at the same time!
  • BE the expert!  Sounds simple but it’s not.  You have to think, feel and ACT like an expert in your industry.  If you don’t, why would anyone else trust that you are? Stop procrastinating and waffling around.  Before you do anything, THINK to yourself “What would the Expert in __(my industry)__ be seen doing or be overhead saying or ???”  Also, an expert wouldn’t spend their days or hours doing research and creating their website or hanging out on facebook.  What do you think they would be doing each day?
  • Narrow It Down!  Master your topic by DOING, not taking more training classes or googling it or researching the shit out of it for hours on it…  STOP IT… What this means is that you must have a TARGET MARKET and you must know in detail what their pains/challenges are and what they think they WANT from working with you.  The only way to know that is to actually start working with them and/or ASK them.
  • Plant Your Flag and say NO!  Position yourself as the expert by saying YES to the things that directly affect this… and actually saying NO to all of the “great opportunities” and bright-and-shiny-objects that will continue to come your way… if they don’t contribute to this goal.
  • Build Your List!  I could say this 1,000 times and there is still going to be someone out there who KNOWS this but still hasn’t followed up with their business cards, created their opt-in (designed for their target market) or is blogging regularly offering VALUE in order to build their following.  The size and engagement of your active list contributes to the bottom line of your business… SIZE MATTERS but QUALITY also trumps QUANTITY… So why wait?
  • Your MAGIC already exists!  Create Your FUNNEL with what you already have and what you already know.  Stop recreating the wheel and seeking “magic pills”!  You ARE the expert and you already have everything you need to create your packages, programs and products.  You just need to
    • get organized,
    • have a plan and
    • have a coach who knows how to get this done.

Your SIGNATURE PROGRAM is just a few steps away from the clutter you are sorting through to find your $hit… and is delayed by the confidence you aren’t having in yourself.  You MUST believe and then DO…

 

  • PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE!  “YOU” are enough to promote.  Many people used to be great in sales and promotion working for someone else and then lost their way when they figured out they now have to “sell” themselves.  Get over it!  If you had to go get a job, you would have to promote someone you don’t even like as much and you know that YOU can help your clients the BEST.

So why are you not CONSISTENTLY marketing, promoting, and selling YOURSELF?

GOOD question!  And I bet the answer is NOT what you think!

How to Find Free Images With Google’s Advanced Image Search

How to Find Free Images With Google’s Advanced Image Search

I found this GREAT article on google for those clients who need images on a regular basis but want to do it with INTEGRITY, the right way…  See below and I hope this helps 🙂

Shelley


The general rule of thumb in the Internet world is that at least one image should be used to complement every blog post you create. There are several benefits to doing this, with the most important being to capture the attention of many more readers by giving your words a boost with a little visual appeal.

However, this doesn’t mean just importing the first image you come across. It must first, make sense and correlate with what the post is about and second, not infringe on any copyright laws. There can be consequences that go along with this that you won’t want to personally come across. The easiest way to find an acceptable image is to change your Google search settings to filter out anything that could potentially bring you repercussions.

Using images is a great way to enhance your blog post and can help to:

  • Produce a nice thumbnail or featured image
  • Introduce your message
  • Break up your content
  • Encourage social media sharing
  • Support your point
  • Make your blog more memorable
  • Capture emotion
  • Add color to your blog
  • Improve SEO by adding Alt tags and keyword-rich file names

Naturally, bloggers will go straight to Google and grab one of the first images they find in the search to use on their blog. Snagging copyrighted images can get you into a heap of trouble.

It’s no fun receiving one of these threatening letters from the Legal Department at Getty Images demanding nearly $1000 per image.

Follow these simple steps to find royalty free images using the Google Images advanced search.

Step 1

Enter a search term in Google Images search.

Step 2

Click the Gear icon, then select Advanced search.

Step 3

Scroll down and use the usage rights drop down menu to select free to use or share, even commercially.

Step 4

Click the Advanced Search button.

The image search results will provide you with a plethora of images to choose from.

Step 5

Just to be safe, you want to double check that the image is really “free” to use. There are tools, many free, to check usage rights, like the TinEye reverse image search, that can help you locate additional information or creative commons usage.

This step is highly recommend as other webmasters and bloggers could have removed the copyright and metadata from the image and re-uploaded without the owner’s permission.
