My Quiz Tool for Better Customer Experiences

Today I’m going to do something a little different. And it’s specifically for my fellow entrepreneurs out there….

Typically I talk about mindset strategies that make life easier & better.

But today I’m going to talk about a tool I use to make business life easier & better – for both you and your clients. (And yes, I do have affiliate links on here – for products that I personally enjoy using in my own business.)

Get Unstuck: Let Go of the Monkey

Recently my family and I went to the Austin Zoo. 

It’s not exactly San Diego, but let me tell you, any event where I see a chicken that’s wearing MC Hammer feather pants in the first 5 minutes is a win.

Alas, we did not make it to the monkeys. 

But I’ve seen enough in my day to know that they can get pretty big. And heavy. 

The most distracting?

The monkeys we carry on our backs. (See what I did there? Heh heh….) Continue reading “Get Unstuck: Let Go of the Monkey”

How Many Times are You Going to Pay for That?

Today I went to one of my favorite places to grab a kolache (yes, I realize I might have a problem). I got my food, gave the cashier my credit card, and he swiped it… ONCE!

Amazing, right?

Wait, what? Not so much, you say?

What’s so incredible about paying for something one time?

Nothing, really.

We do it all the time.

Make a choice, pay the bill.

But that’s not really the whole story when it comes to our own mistakes. Continue reading “How Many Times are You Going to Pay for That?”

Preemptively Block Feelings of Failure

Have you ever watched Charlie Brown? You know how there’s that one tree that always gets the kites he tries to fly?

He keeps trying, but he still gets really discouraged in the process.

And who can blame him? It’s hard to consistently fall short when you’re trying to do something you love.

Well, a couple weekends ago, my family and I went to a kite festival here in Austin. It was a little rainy at first, but there were still plenty of people out there. And once the clouds cleared out – holy moly it was packed!

A little after we got to the fair, we saw this big beautiful kite stuck in a huge tree. Continue reading “Preemptively Block Feelings of Failure”

The Time-Sucking, Dream-Destroying Knee Jerk Yes

I hate scary movies.

Always have, always will.

But somehow I found myself in a cold, dark theater, legs balled up on my chair, hiding my head under the hood of my sweatshirt, trying to block the gruesome sounds of the horror flick I’d agreed to see. Yeah, and did I mention I was an adult? Oy…. Continue reading “The Time-Sucking, Dream-Destroying Knee Jerk Yes”

What’s Your Intention?

The Power of Words

How are you doing. This week? Fantastic, I hope!

When people ask me how I’m doing, I normally say “fabulous.” I say it the same way people respond with “fine” – it’s my answer even when I’m not feeling 100% fab. I do that because I believe in the power of intention and the power of words.

Oh, and science.
