For Woman Entrepreneurs Only – Letting go of Superwoman

 
superwoman

It took me a long time to realize that I didn’t need to be Superwoman. For some reason, “Superwoman” is glorified in our society. She can do it all: run a business, take care of the kids, keep the house perfectly clean, make delicious meals, be a great wife and somehow end up at the end of the day in a good mood ready to keep giving more.

 

Can you relate to being Superwoman?

 

The most healing thing ever for me was realizing I didn’t have to be Superwoman to be super…and in fact, letting of Superwoman allowed me to be an even better business owner, entrepreneur, wife and mother.

 

Because Superwoman is actually just a facade. Underneath all of the accomplishments and the beautiful cape she wears as her mask, she’s totally worn out, overwhelmed, and wanting something different for herself but too afraid to admit it.

 

Being Superwoman is not the path of the conscious, female entrepreneur. 

 

And Adrenal fatigue, stress and burnout are not accomplishments, ladies!

 

It’s time to get the new paradigm shift. The new Superwoman:

 

  • Receives
  • Asks for support
  • Learns to let go
  • Takes on less rather than more
  • Knows her sense of worth does not come from crossing off her to-do list

 

If you’re a heart-based, female entrepreneur who wants to have a big impact without compromising on your lifestyle, your health and well-being and yourself, then check out this exciting event just for women entrepreneurs – and evolved guys, too 🙂

If traditional networking makes you nervous, try this…

 
partnershipsWhat’s your reaction to the idea of traditional networking? Is it something that fills you excitement, enthusiasm and joy? Something that lights you up and makes you feel as though you’re serving your potential clients in your highest capacity?
 
Yeah, me neither.
 
I’m not saying there’s anything inherently wrong with the way we’re usually taught to network. In fact, it can work really well for a lot of people.
 
But everyone is different; and for many holistic, heart-centered entrepreneurs, networking as it’s traditionally taught just doesn’t seem to resonate.
 
Here are some of the experiences we heart-based entrepreneurs have when we go to business-as-usual networking meetings:

  • Standing in front of a crowded room, nervously sharing about why everyone there should become clients.
  • Awkwardly striking up conversations with people who just seem to be waiting for a pause to start telling you about their business.
  • Struggling to squeeze time into our day to dress up and drive the two-hour trip to GET to the nearest networking event.
  • Feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, and as though everyone else we meet there is so much further along than we are.

 
For the reasons above (along with your stomach tying itself repeatedly in knots!), most holistic practitioners and heart-based entrepreneurs avoid networking.
 
So, should you just run the other way the next time you’re invited to a networking event?
 
Well, not exactly.
 
See, it’s not about “networking”, it’s about people. And connections. Real connections.
 
The truth is, connecting with like-minded people is one of the BEST ways to grow your business and attract your ideal clients.
 
And the good news is, you don’t have to do traditional networking in order to connect with like-minded people.
 
One of the things I’ve done to create a successful, sustainable, thriving business over the years (no matter what I was doing… whether it was as a wellness coach, a business coach or now, as an association leader) is to create connections with like-minded people. And it’s not only served me by bringing me the best clients over the years, but also in creating some of my greatest friends in the world….something I never could have imagined.
 
Business friendships can become like the family or friends you always wished you had…. people who really see you for who you are, who get you at a different level and see your truth and purpose in the world.
 
Now. You might be thinking… “But I already DO connect with people in my business. If all I need is connection, why aren’t I getting the clients I need?”
 
It’s a fair question. And the truth is that recognizing your existing connections is an awesome start… However, you need to take two important steps beyond general connection if you want to grow your business:
 

  • Step #1 – discover the secrets of building authentic business friendships: a business friendship is a heartfelt connection between like-minded people who genuinely enjoy supporting each other’s business growth. By helping each other, you can both serve more clients, make more money, and create a bigger difference in the world. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?
  • Step #2 – know where to find those like-minded business friends: It’s important to connect with communities of like-minded people so you can start forming strong relationships. Up until now, many heart-based entrepreneurs have found the process of connecting with other people in business a little hit-and-miss. Where do you find these communities and how do you actually get the support you need once you do?

 
I hope these first 2 steps help you in healing your “traditional networking wounds” and stepping into building lasting, business friendships. If this is article resonated with you, I’m going to recommend that you read on to sign up for an amazing free training that will go even deeper.
 
My friend Jenn August believes passionately that networking doesn’t have to be that way. She’s pioneered a revolutionary new way to network by building one-to-one business friendships in a warm, welcoming, completely safe online setting.
 
To show you exactly how it can work, Jenn’s running a free training webinar at noon on March 20th PST that will teach you:
 

  • How to attract all the clients you need by building one-to-one business friendships.
  • How to truly understand (and communicate!) the value of who you are and what you offer right now.
  • How to network in a way that feels natural and authentic (even if you’re painfully shy).
  • Where to find aligned people who genuinely want to connect with you and help you make your business successful.
  • The connection secrets that grew her own business to six figures (as well as earned her invitations to collaborate with industry superstars like Jack Canfield, Marcia Wieder and Janet Attwood).

 
The webinar is called “How to Attract All the Clients You Need by Building Business Friendships”.
 
Interested? Find out more about Jenn’s free training session here.
 
But trust me: Jenn’s approach is like NOTHING you’ve ever seen before. I don’t use words like “revolutionary” often, but in this case, I think it’s justified.
 
Come along to her “How to Attract All the Clients You Need by Building Business Friendships” training session to see exactly what I mean.
 
RSVP for the training webinar today.

How To Make A Lucrative Career Out of Profound Service

Are you in business because you care deeply about being of profound service in the world?

 

Or are you planning a new business, but wonder if you can make it financially sustainable?

 

You may have a beautiful vision, full of exquisite possibilities… making a positive difference in the world, following your heart and doing what you truly love, making good money, and more…

 

Yet, the disturbing truth is the vast majority of people who take this path wind up struggling.

 

Many goodhearted people get stuck in "survival mode". They have trouble attracting enough clients. They feel overwhelmed by a million things to do, an overflowing email inbox, and conflicting information from all the so called "experts".

 

More often than not, the reality just doesn’t match up with the vision.

 

Can you relate?

 

It makes me angry, because it doesn’t have to be this way!

 

If you’re not already "living your dream", you probably haven’t yet mastered one or more of the 3 critical areas. Let’s look at what they are.

 

But first, I’d like to introduce you to someone who can help…

 

My friend Ryan Eliason has spent the last few decades supporting socially conscious entrepreneurs to sort through information overload, consider all the potential strategies, and focus in on what really works.

 

In the past few years, nearly 50,000 people from 60 countries have been through his training programs. Many of them have found their way out of struggle and into profound success.

 

His programs are popular because he gives more tangible guidance and value in his FREE programs than many "experts" give in their paid programs.

 

By the way, he’s doing a new training which you can participate in from the comfort of your home, at the convenience of your own schedule.

 

If you’re ready to turn things around, and put yourself on the path to success, please go here now and RSVP at no cost for The 2014 Visionary Entrepreneur Training

 

Now, onto the 3 areas you must master…..

The 3 Critical Area you must master to Live Your Dream and Change the World

I asked Ryan to explain, in the simplest terms possible, what the 3 areas are that people need to master in order to live their dream as a Changemaker and make a big difference with their work.

 

Here’s what he said:

 

    1. 1. Mindset or Inner Game
    2. 2. Client Attraction
    3. 3. Time Mastery

     

    Area #1: Mindset / inner game…

    Here’s a secret Ryan’s learned through coaching thousands of clients. Your mindset is probably THE most critical factor determining whether or not you’ll be successful in business or with making a positive impact in the world.

     

    In fact, he estimates that success in business is roughly 90% psychological, and only 10% technical.

     

    Area #2: Client attraction…

    Client attraction is one of the most talked about and least understood aspects of business. Most people will tell you that successful marketing comes from persuading people through impressive web pages, presentations, videos, blogs, email newsletters, social media, sales letters, advertisements and more.

     

    However, these marketing methods are actually surface level tactics. They can end up being gigantic time and money wasters without the right fundamental approach to client attraction and enrollment.

     

    Here’s the reality… you’ll have all the clients you could possibly want when you learn how to genuinely connect with and serve your potential clients.

     

     

    Area #3: Time mastery…

    Finally, if you haven’t mastered your time you’ll end up unfocused, distracted, overworked and tired at the end of the day, without much in the way of results to show for all your work.

     

    Let’s face it, a business owner’s To Do list is at least 100 times as long as the typical employee’s. That means you need to be 100 times more skilled at implementing the correct priorities, while ignoring the abundance of distractions and bright shiny objects.

     

    Are you ready to get these three critical areas handled?

     

    If so, I invite you to Register at the link below for Ryan’s complimentary training:

     

    The 2014 Visionary Entrepreneur Training

     

    By the way, this training is not another one of those "bright shiny objects" that will distract you from what you really should be focused on.

     

    It will help you focus on the fundamentals of success. These are THE most important things to focus on, no matter what stage you’re at in your business.

     

    And go ahead, post your comments on the blog and let us know which of the 3 areas you’re working on or need support with!

     

    Health, Love and Success,
