My "messy room" strategy for easy decision making.

Every day, we're tasked with thousands of decisions. How many? Well, Cornell University researchers said we make about 226 decisions just on FOOD in an average day. The total number for adults is somewhere in the range of 35,000 decisions a day. Many of them are impulsive, and logic-driven (pro/con, etc.), but that's STILL a […]

Why a hiatus might be good for your creative business

No sooner had I finished my lunch when the phone rang. It was my oldest. "Hey, are you okay?" "Not really, Mom. Aunt Dian died." Less than an hour later, I was on the road to Michigan. 9 hours later, I'm crashing at my ex-husband's house for the night. That meant I wasn't able to […]

Are you being a hypocrite with your pricing?

One of the scariest topics for most of my clients - the one that brings with it the most baggage and emotional upheaval - is pricing. Right now, about half of my Incubator clients are stalled out on the decision to raise their prices. As early-stage entrepreneurs, there's a struggle between wanting to earn more […]

Does opportunity only knock once?

I think it was my grandmother who first told me that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. I was going to her church for Easter Sunday, and, of course, I had to look my best. I was representing my family, I was showing up for God, and (probably most important […]

Some dreams take a lifetime to come true... especially if you do it all by yourself. Jim Bishop's dream started when he was 15.

What I see when I look at you: a love note

Hello dear one! I have never been a big comic book fan. When I was a kid, I wanted to read "real" books. "serious" books. So comics were not part of the equation. Plus, I have an addictive personality, so that would be one more thing on which to spend money I didn't have. So […]

Underearning? Upper Limit Problems? Raise Your Success Ceiling & Re-set Your Thermostat

In my house, there's a never-ending battle that's almost as epic as the fight for the remote control. The thermostat. My husband likes it hot. He closes the vent in our room and bundles under at least two blankets even during Summer! My son likes it cold. If it's warmer than 65, he'll turn the thermostat […]

3 must-haves for lasting success in life and business

She was sprawled out on the sidewalk, screaming bloody murder.  The bike - a garage sale special (meaning there was no padding on the all-metal seat) - was still somehow attached to her. She and I lived close to each other, and were about the same age, but I had no real interest in bikes when I […]

Why you still haven't hit your big income goal... and how to fix it.

As I hear clients, colleagues, and friends sharing their goals for 2015, there's a chorus being repeated over and over: "This year is the year I FINALLY break __ figures!" I've heard it so many times that it makes me dizzy and sad to think about the number of folks who continue to miss the mark on this particular […]

The Era of Success Your Way

I'm not one for social commentary or deep philosophical discussions, so consider this the "light version" of any meaningful conversation about the nexus of technology and society. This isn't a commentary about technology, though. It's more about what's unwittingly happened to people as we've become more "connected" to the world. The Industrial Age gave us cookie-cutter, […]
