Set Up for Success: What’s Your Word of the Year? Part 1

There are tons of different ways to set goals and intentions for the new year. Some people make a list of goals or resolutions, or they just call them loose intentions. Others set a ton of goals. Some people set only a few.

You might fill out an entire planning workbook for your new year.

Or maybe you make vision boards. Another popular option is to choose a word of the year.

I do a bit of everything, but setting a word for the year is really helpful for me because it sets the tone for my entire year.

It’s easier to remember than a whole list of goals. I’m not usually a woo woo girl, but it also gives me a mantra or something to guide my thoughts and actions for the whole year.

Something as simple as that can make all the difference.

Business Tools Tip: Why I Love Airtable

Businesses process a lot of information, and keeping all that stuff organized is a giant pain in the you-know-what.

Most business owners are forever on the quest for an easy way to organize. In the meantime, they’re often swimming through tons of pieces of content and information with no real way to keep track of it all.

That’s when things fall through the cracks!

I’m always on the lookout for amazing tools to help make my life (and the life of my clients!) easier. I’m also a techie girl, so I love playing with new programs!

One of my favorite recent finds is Airtable.

How the Fear of Asking Holds Us Back

How often in life and business do we avoid asking for what we want or need, simply because we don’t want to bug someone? How often do we take rejection personally?  

If my son is any indication, somewhere between 6 and adulthood we learn this behavior. When we’re children, we don’t worry about bothering someone or take things personally. We don’t preface our requests. We just simply ask, the way my son asked “Hey, are we doing this or not?” 

I’ve been in business for 10 years now and I still get caught in this little snag from time to time.

How to Record Your Metrics So Your Business Can Thrive

I see it time and time again. Business owners want to see their businesses grow and reach their full potential, and why shouldn’t they?

Year End Business Planning: End 2018 Right + Start 2019 Strong! 

The New Year is upon us. The years go by so fast, and so slow at the same time.

The days are long, but the years are short, right?

So much can change in a year. You might have changed a lot. You’ve probably done a lot in your business and personal life.

This is a time of reflection for most of us. A lot of us like to think about the past year and start dreaming and planning for the next one.

Business Tools Tip: Why I love

I’ve been really into Facebook Live lately, especially for my clients. It’s so much fun to interact with your audience in real time!

Most of the time, you can only Facebook Live with a mobile device like a smartphone. If you’re doing an interview, you can only show one person at a time on the screen. As awesome as Facebook Live is, there are still somethings I wish were different, especially for business owners.

I don’t love holding my phone up or having to rig up a selfie stick to make my live broadcasts look nice and professional. I also like to interview other people on FB live, but I don’t love how it switched back and forth, only showing one of us at a time.

How to Get Back on Track When You Didn’t Meet Your Business Goals.



You set a business goal and you didn’t make it.

You had a vision, you made a plan (or maybe you didn’t), you set a deadline (or not), and that deadline came and went. But you didn’t hit your target.

Been there, done that! It happens to everyone.

There are only two directions to go when you’ve dropped the ball on a goal:

You can beat yourself up about it.
You can keep moving forward.
So how do you get up and dust yourself off after a failure? How do you figure out where to go next when your big goals didn’t pan out?
