3 Steps to Un-Limiting Your Possibilities for New Clients?

3 Steps to Un-Limiting Your Possibilities for New Clients?

Whether you’re a business owner looking for clients/customers or a job seeker looking for a job it can feel impossible now… what if it’s not? Here are 3 simple steps to Unlimiting Your Possibilities even during this recession.

The biggest block people often have about their future possibilities is thinking that what they really want can’t or won’t happen.  Thinking that what they want is too big, too much or just not possible…thinking there aren’t jobs, there aren’t clients/customers.  Or, thinking they don’t have what it takes, that they aren’t good enough to get them.

I think we’ve all been there at one time or another in our lives.  I have, depending on the size of my goal or what’s going on around me, and most of my clients have hit that wall too…no matter how successful they are.  Right now with all the negative news about the recession it’s even easier to feel those ways and we can get stuck.

We get stuck and limit ourselves by thinking something isn’t possible, for whatever reason.  Then without even realizing it, we don’t really try.  We might think we are but we’re not really putting ourselves out there and not going for it.

So, how do you go from limiting your possibilities to having what you want – that great new job or those new clients/customers?

Most say the first part of that process is knowing what you want.  I say there is a step before that.

Step #1:  Open Up To Possibilities.

This isn’t really a ‘to do’ step.  It’s an ongoing practice.  Often before we will even let ourselves know what we want, we have to believe that maybe, just maybe, it’s possible.

– Maybe that great job, the one that you really want is out there waiting for you to fill it.

– Maybe those clients/customers are out there looking for your services right now.

If you knew that, you’d have the positive attitude to go for it, to do what it takes and end up in front of them, ready and willing.  (I don’t want to minimize the challenges going on in the world or your life right now.  I can say this because my clients are getting good jobs/clients/customers even in this recession.  I know this works.)

So, before you even start, don’t pre-judge.  For now, let go of thinking about “How?” or “Is it possible?”  At this point, don’t limit your options.  As you move forward in this process, if those limiting thoughts come up just be aware of them and say, “I’m not sure if that’s true or not” and just leave it. It’s often just fear of the new and what we don’t know, or fear that what we want can’t happen so we don’t even find out.

This is a great place to strengthen that faith muscle… know that the end result will be good and that this is just the process of getting there.  You get to look at the feasibility in Step 3.  For now, just open up to what might be.

– Every truly great accomplishment is at first impossible! – Fortune Cookie

So, when you move into the next step and start thinking about what you really want, thinking of that next job/client/customer and how you’re going to get them just set aside ‘I can’t because…’ or ‘I want this but…’ Let it go.  Now is just a time for curiosity and being open to what you really want.

Step #2:  What Do You Really Want?

So, now… What do you want?  Not what you think you can have or what you think is possible.  This is your time to open up to knowing what you desire for you.

– Your Job – What kind of job, what does it pay, is it close to home, it is downtown, who would you work with, on what… add your passion and your purpose, what would you love?  What do you REALLY want?

– Your Business – How many clients/customers?  What kind of clients/customers?  How much income?  What would you love working with them on/with?  What would you love?  What do you REALLY want?

Be open.  Believe in the possibilities and in yourself.  Any time you get stuck or think it’s not possible… remember… Step #1:  Open Up To Possibilities… to Your Possibilities!  Now again… What do you really want?

– “Whether we think we can or think we can’t, we’re right” – Henry Ford

I’ll be writing a couple more articles to help you clarify what you want, and for now, just think of the highest and best of what you want.  What is your next stretch, your dream, or your vision… what do you want?  Make it realistic and exciting.

So, there’s your want…now the dreaded “but.”  But can it really happen?

Step #3:  I See, I See!  Are you ready to see clearly?

So, this is where the truth comes out.  Often times we pre-judge or limit ourselves without really looking at the real feasibility of things.  Well, so far you haven’t done that.  You have this vision of what you want, that may or may not be possible.  Let’s find out.  By the way, what I’ve noticed from years of working with clients… often when we don’t really stop and think about it, we decide something is impossible, when it really is possible.

The “I See!” helps me remember the deeper meaning of “IC,IC” or “It Can, I Can!”. (You’ll get it in a minute.)

So, “It Can!” is where you question, “Can it be done?  Is what you want possible?”  Think about it, are others doing what you want?

– Are there those jobs out there?

– Are there those clients/customers out there?

– Is someone getting them?

(This is also a great place to come back to and look at, “how?”  If they did, how did they?  What did they do?  What worked?)

So… Can it be done?  If the answer is yes, “It Can!”

Next, “I Can!” is where you question, “Can I do it?”

– Can you do what they’re doing?

– Is it really possible for you?

– Can you take the steps they’re taking and make it work?

Now, do you see clearly?  Can you do it?  Did you come up with, “Yes, It Can!  Yes, I Can!”?  If you didn’t, find something different.  You just saved yourself lots of heartache.

If you did… know that when you really believe something is possible, like now, and see that it is possible for you, that triggers your mind to find ways to make it happen.  Know that.  And, decide you are going to make it happen.  The “How To” comes when you believe you can.  Then you take the next indicated step and your way is already clear… I see!  I see!  Do you feel differently, a sense of possibility?  Greater hope?

Do you see?  You can have what you want. 

1.         Open up to what’s possible.

2.         Know what you want.

3.         Know “It Can! I Can!” and go for it.

So, what’s your next step?  What did the person that was successful do?  What do you need to do?  Go do it!  Now it’s up to you to go get it and if any step along the way feels too big, check in again, Can it?  Can I?  See Clearly.  Open Up To Your Possibilities and Live The Life That You Imagine.

–           “If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”  – Thomas Edison

    I’ve spent the whole day unsuccessfully trying to avoid the doom and gloom of the news. The media can really bring you down, even when your own outlook is positive. They really hammered me today. I’m glad I took the time to read your article. It’s an affirming way to wrap up the day, and start tomorrow on a positive foot again.

    Thanks.

A Prescription for Success: Are You Doing What It Takes?

A Prescription for Success: Are You Doing What It Takes?

Do you want to be more successful, make more money, have a better life, maybe even better relationships? Are you sure?

Written Jan 19, 2009, read 2237 times on biznik since then.

Are you committed to your success, having your life be better, creating strong relationships, or are you committed to… something else?

One measure, look at the results of your business and life. Do you have what you want? Is it the life and the business/work that you dream of?

WARNING: Before we go on, know that you might read the next paragraph and think, “That’s not me. I don’t do that.” But before you quit reading, consider whether you are having the results in your business and are reaching the level of success you want. If the answer is no, then read on… especially if you don’t want to!

The second measure is are you spending your time building and creating what you want? Do you have a plan, goals, are you taking steps each day to build your dream, to create the success that you want? Or… and this is where it gets uncomfortable… Or, are you spending your time making excuses, blaming, complaining, telling your story about why it didn’t or doesn’t work, using the economy as an excuse, or just avoiding thinking about it at all? Yeow!

That might be uncomfortable to read. What’s more uncomfortable is to have your business fail, your life turn out poorly, or to find yourself so deep in debt that you’re overwhelmed because you weren’t facing what wasn’t working. The only way to change things, to have the level of success you want in your business and your life is to face this: Either you are building what you want, or you’re trying to be comfortable with what is really not comfortable by putting the focus on something else.

It is up to you to decide… do you want the success and life you desire or do you want the excuse? You can’t have both. This may sound harsh but I’d rather get in your face now, get you uncomfortable with what’s not working so that you’ll make the changes you need to, to have the life you desire.

That sounds hard until you start doing it. Imagine… going for what you really want instead of settling, finding out that you are the person you always knew you could be, doing the great things that you always knew, somewhere within you, that you could.

There’s a side note here. Maybe you believe that you can’t, that you don’t know how, that you’re not good enough… whatever limiting belief… I’m here to tell you, “IT’S NOT TRUE! YOU HAVE EVERYTHING WITHIN YOU AND AVAILABLE TO YOU TO CREATE THE LEVEL OF SUCCESS AND THE LIFE YOU DESIRE!” You just need to take the first step, then the next… What if you really could have the level of success and life you wanted and the only thing that was stopping you… was you. If you’re not as successful as you want, that’s probably the case. So, let’s get to the solution. The way to change anything is to change what you think, say and do. That’s it.

The Prescription:

  1. Listen to Yourself. What are you saying, in the world and in your head? Are you talking success or failure? Are you talking and thinking, “I can” and “It’s possible”? You’re not going to find solutions if you’re not looking for them. If your thoughts are on “can’t” you’re not looking for solutions, you’re looking for excuses…and you’re smart and capable, so you’ll find whatever you’re looking for.
  2. Get Really Uncomfortable, Face What Isn’t Working. What do you want that you don’t have? Success, great relationships, enough money, time to play. What aren’t you doing that you need to be doing? Are you showing up and following through or not? Are you being the person, on a daily basis, that will get you the success and the life that you want? If you’re not, face it.
  3. DECIDE that you are going to do what it takes to change. Change won’t happen until you decide to make it happen. Get to the point that you say, “I hate this! I want something different! I’m going to do something about it!” Then…
  4. Change Your Thoughts & Words to Support Your Success. There is a catch to this, with all the self help and spiritual tools out there, people are learning to make the uncomfortable comfortable. So use your thoughts and words not to make yourself comfortable with what isn’t working but to believe in yourself and believe that what you desire is possible. Use your words and thoughts to support you in moving forward and going for it. Thoughts and words are often just habitual so stay conscious and practice thinking and talking like a winner until it become a habit, then keep doing it.
  5. DO Something. What I’ve found with my clients and myself is that we know what to do, at least the next step. The trick is, doing it. Do what you know you need to do today. The next step that’s right in front of you, do it. When you’ve done that, what’s next? Do that.
  6. Go For It! Take the risk to do what you really want to do. I know it’s not easy to really go for what you want, to step out on that limb, close that sale, publish that article, talk to that successful stranger, risk… but do you really want an easy life? Or, do you want a life filled with great experiences, being fully alive, believing in yourself and going for your dream, making it happen, going for the real deal?

Now that you have the prescription, use it to create the life and success you want. This may sound hard until you start doing it.  But… imagine going for what you really want instead of settling, and finding out that you are the person you always knew you could be!

    Lisa, This hits home for me. The “just do it” action is really scary for a lot of people, but after last year as a Realtor I decided that I really wanted to be in this business for the long term, so I needed to make some changes, and that meant “just doing it!” Eventually you will get over the uncomfortable stage and your life gets exciting — knowing that you can create what you want for yourself in life is very powerful. Good luck to everyone in 2009! It’s going to be a great year ~

    Lisa, your article reminded me of when I get caught up in knots, which is how I think of my “nots”:

    The website’s not up yet, the relationship with the client I want is *not” developed yet, etc.

    Time to loosen those stubborn knots and just move forward with things. Thanks for inspiring me.

Will Your Business Succeed or Fail in This Economy?

Will Your Business Succeed or Fail in This Economy?

In every economy there are businesses that fail and businesses that come out ahead. The difference is often the owner of the business. Here are some tips to help you be successful, no matter what.

If you’re an entrepreneur, business owner, service provider or in sales the economy right now may be affecting your business but whether or not your business succeeds or fails is up to you, not the economy.  That’s good news.

In every economy there are businesses within the same industry that fail and businesses that come out ahead. The difference is often the owner of the business.  Are they feeling stuck and paralyzed by outside influences, like the economy, or have they decide that they will do what it takes and be successful, no matter what.

There are two responses to what’s going on right now…either fear or opportunity… either you feel overwhelmed and shrink or you see what you’re made of, what you can do and strengthen yourself to meet those outside influences (Yahoo!).  It’s all perspective and choice.  In every economy there are people that come out ahead, that make money and do great.  Why not have it be you that succeeds! 

It starts with your attitude.  It’s not just about pushing harder, it’s about coming up with good ideas, following through on them, and doing so in a way that works.  With a negative attitude, with a belief that things are bad and won’t work, none of that is possible.  So, to create a successful business and be a winner, start from within and follow up with action.

Empower yourself by what you think and say and do… these tips may seem too simple but give them a try and see if they make a difference in your life and your business.

Start Your Day by Reading Something Positive.  Before you start looking at your To Do List, take fifteen minutes to read something positive, a book on success, prosperity, spirituality, wealth, positive thinking – something positive first thing in the morning.  Some of my current recommendations are:

  • The Slight Edge – Jeff Olson
  • Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
  • The Magic of Thinking Big – David Schwartz
  • Secrets of Six Figure Woman – Barbara Stanny
  • You Can Heal Your Life – Louise Hay

Read something that inspires and empowers you, that makes you feel good, like you could conquer the world, or at least your world.  Start your day on a positive note.

Decide What You’ll Accomplish Each Day.  I’ve noticed with my clients that when things get challenging and they get stressed they start doing busy work instead of going for it, they start feeling overwhelmed and freeze.  So, after raising your attitude and outlook by your positive reading, decide where you want to go next with your business, what you need to do to be successful and what you’ll do today to get there.  Set goals and make a plan for your day.  Decide what you want to do, where you want to go, and how successful you want to be.

Okay, your attitude is better, the next step is the doing.

Take Action – Do What It Takes To Succeed.  Do what you need to do today.  You’ll feel better.  Do something that will give you a sense of accomplishment and that will make a difference in your life and for your business.  Make some sales calls, go to a networking event and network, do that thing that you’ve been putting off… Do Something.  Show yourself that you mean business, that you’re going for it, and that you are going to get it.  Be a success today!

To keep it simple and powerful, pick 1 to 3 Priority Action Items each day that are musts, not just ‘to do’ items but what you know you must do to move forward.  These are items you are committing to do for you self.  Write them down, prioritize them, check them off when you accomplish them, and appreciate you for doing them.

Having a positive attitude is very important and it needs to be followed by directed action to create your good (success, prosperity, wealth, happiness).  It’s taking your power back instead of feeling controlled by outside influences.  Create what you want, not what you think is possible based on the economy or any other outside influence.  Decide what you want to create and take the action to do it.

Take That Action That You’ve Been Putting Off!  If you’re not at the very top of your game, leading in your industry, there are things that you could be doing that you’re not and you know it.  Pick one that inspires you, that will expect more of you than you are giving now and do it.  Choose something that you know would benefit your business.  We can feel insecure, we get scared, we don’t think we’re good enough to do that next thing or reach to that next level, but now is the time, the economy is giving us the opportunity to be more than we thought we could.  Stretch yourself.  Go for it.

Now that you’ve created a great day for yourself, appreciate yourself and all your hard work, and take stock of all the good that is.

Write a Nightly Gratitude List – One of the best things to get you into a better mental space, knowing that good is possible, is to focus on the good that already is.  Think about all you have – your skills, your friends, your opportunities, all the good in your life and business… your customers/clients past, present and future.  List what you do have.  To have a quick shift write a list of “100 Things I’m Grateful For.”

Then every night before you fall asleep write a list of *10 Things I’m Grateful For* so your subconscious mind thinks of all your good while you sleep.  You’ll sleep better and wake in the morning feeling better.  (Won’t that help your business… and all of your life?)

Acknowledge Your Successes – Along with what your grateful for, write what you did today to build your business and make your life better?  Before you go to sleep appreciate and value yourself, write a list of *5 of My Successes Today* so you are focusing on what you have done versus the things that you didn’t do.  There will always be things we didn’t do but focusing on them breaks us down.  Focusing on what we did empowers us to do more and do it better.  And again, you’ll sleep better and you’ll start focusing on what you are doing.  You’ll see the power you have to change your world and your business, you’ll feel better and want to do more because you’re appreciating and valuing you.

In every situation we have the opportunity to build ourselves up to meet the situation or to be beaten by it.  This is a great time to build new tools and create new habits for yourself.  Try these for a week and pay attention to any differences in your business and life.  If they work and support you now, imagine how great they’ll work when the economy swings back around.

You can turn this challenging time into your adventure… don’t you want to know what you’re made of?  Don’t you want to live to your potential?  What could you do now, that you haven’t done before?  We all want to fulfill our potential, to see what we’re made of and what we’re capable of.  The economy is giving you your chance, what you do with it is up to you…

    Attitude does give us the short term direction. We choose what we do or don’t do today. Do you use social media for marketing? Does your referral networking provide you with high quality leads? Do you have joint venture partners that where you both profit from collaborating? I beleive that going past and beyond the short term attitude, is where the charater of a business person lives . Do we have sustainability to maintain our business efforts when family problems occur. Can you or I muster strength in adversity? These questions are really at the heart of each of us to persist no matter what feelings are getting present in the moment. If Edison can go through 10,000 expirements with failure he had something that compelled him forward. I suggest that atttitude is only a starting point for what we are capable of doing. That there is determination and courage we derive from a passion much deeper and more profound than surface attitudes and feelings of worry. That the passion in ones charater is enough to win at our lives and at ou business outsets.

    Thank you for getting me thinking,

    You hit it right on the money, it is not what is going on externally that impacts a business, it is all about the mindset, the internal attitude of a business owner, and the business activities that impacts a business.

    Thank you for sharing this motivating and encouraging article. I think people will find this helpful regardless of the state of the economy.

    Making a plan of action is something I know I need to do – and I’ve just started my weekly ‘action plan’; been doing it for the past several weeks – and it works!

    Great reminders Lisa. I especially like how you emphasize honesty with ourselves.

    Some of us aren’t born with a great attitude. :)

    My first reaction when I am faced with is adversity is usually either anger or denial. I don’t tolerate change too well (at first) so it leads to procrastination which is a way to give away my power.

    Here’s how I get around the automatic brakes that kick in times of adversity: I make a list of everything that I know will help me. Yes, including all those that I never ever want to do (either because they take too much time, because I hate asking for help or I am just plain stubborn).

    To me amazement, it usually ends up being a 15-20 item list. Then I look at my list and realize that I am actually not powerless and have plenty of options to improve or reverse this situation.

    I go over my list and scale them 1-10 in terms of how willing I am to take action towards that item. This helps me honor the reaction I have to them and gain control of my feelings back.

    The rest is easy. I immediately do the ones that day that I scaled 8-10. It makes me feel like I am making progress. Some items on that list I know I will never do- probably because of fear or other personality traits that block me. Maybe calling my uncle who is very business savvy but annoying as hell isn’t an something that will prove to be helpful (especially if it makes me waste an hour on the phone with my best friend processing the negative emotions that got stirred up by just hearing his voice).

    Now, the items I chose to follow through might not give me immediate results. But it will give me a tool to manage my emotions and a way to get to know myself better. (It’s hard to ignore those patters that highlight themselves!).

    Anyway, hope someone finds this helpful.

    PS: I have a MAKE YOUR LIST reminder by my computer. It’s the glass I break in times of emergency. :)

    Thanks for this article, Lisa. Sometimes the external factors in life, like the economy, can be very overwhelming. Gratitude, however, is something that is instantly within our reach and one of the easiest ways to change our perspective.

    An attitude of gratitude is empowering because it acknowledges all the amazing things that are already working in our life; and from this place it is a lot easier to take those actions that will contribute to our business success.

    I habitually look for things to be thankful for and am happy to report that the more I do it, the easier my life is becoming. Today I am thankful that I can breathe and that we have such clean air in Seattle.

    I’m also thankful for the great tips posted by fellow Bizniks. :)

    Great article. I also believe that our attitude is everything. I just finished A New Earth by Tolle and he states that we need to be living from, Acceptance, Enjoyment or Enthusiasm to be living consciously — which is o key for me, and I believe all of us.

    I am still amazed every day at how effective putting our positive thoughts into action brings reality (like the Gratitude List you suggested, and focusing on Getting One Thing Done to further our business).

    I so believe in the power of intention and attitude that I’m teaching a Vision Boarding class this Wednesday the 11th at 5Focus from 7-9 PM. If this interests you or any one else reading up, send me an email and I can pass on more details.

    I give thanks for:

    What didn’t work today?

    Getting it all on paper completes the day and creates space for the next day’s magic!

    This form is also handy at team/employee meetings so team-members can clear the air, acknowledge each other, and complete their participation on a high note.

    Great article Lisa! Putting yourself in a different frame of mind emotionally and feeling that difference in the body do a lot to attract success. I call it Changing Gears. Some people can do it by remembering a time that they felt confident, successful, etc. Some people can summon up that space by visualizing the sensory details of what they would experience if they achieve their goal and then imagining how they would feel. It is that energy that attracts. It is not about ignoring the difficult side of work, but rather take the time to have gratitude and dream your Dreams into Life. Like anything else. consistent practice brings consistent rewards. cheers! Noreen Wedman, MS, http://www.ToolKitForHealing.com

    I learned from those people on the power of positive thinking…. but you put their philosophy of prose into pure poetry. A flower to you. Yes. The economy tells us something is wrong with us. My suggestions: 1. Surcharge all 4-wheel drives. The cost 10% in fuel and waste enormous resources. Front wheel drive was proven by Chrysler as equal to or better. 2. Bring the troups home and give them drug sniffing dogs to cure the domestic problem with Columbia, Mexico and Venezuela (by default). 3. Stop arming China with every hard earned secret of technology and corporate know-how. Some walls are worth having. 4. Expose the religious right for what they are and idle the left from attacking American Traditions to spite them. 5. Expose television for what it and Hollywood have become and get kids safely out on the streets and parks playing in the natural world of nature as we did when we were kids. 6. Recognize that global warming is an acronym as weapons of mass destruction was. Both came out of Huxley’s and Calwells dialogue. Global warming is just a nice description for over-population and environmental degredation on a cosmic scale…something not to get hot about..but get cool towards. 7. Automobiles are the American Idol. Merchandizing “Cars” was industries’ way of mind-control. Automobiles should be in one of three colors: chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. Re-tooling should be for high performance diesel and plug-in hybrids…not the yearly makeover in cosmetic maskology. 8. If everyone has an equal opinion…then no-ones opinion has any value.

    This is a wonderful stream of dialogue! I was raised Greek Orthodox. Then dialectics was thought of as two (or more) people walking down the railroad tracks and keeping their balance by holding hands. The only way to walk forward! Lately, I gave to my Chamber/University Toastmasters Club a remonstrative speech in which I told them that ATTITUDE has gone extinct with the advent of television and the medias. It is replaced with something called PERCEPTION. Attitude is from the person, perception is from the opinion. I went on to explain how Archemedes put the mathematics of Pythagoras into words. And defined from the Masonic tradition what the fulcrum and the lever symbolize. In fine, the ‘fulcrum’ of his thought actually rested on the word ‘change’. For he said that with a fulcrum (a pyramidal rock) he could move the world (with a lever). He did not say change the world. They understood ‘move the world’ is not to change it. For what moves need not change and what changes…cannot move. The summary that made them sad is that America changes everything and moves nothing. I have always been gladened from childhood by the stream of Carnegie-type people who knew how to keep a balance between building the world and changing it. For this reason I have a stone monument going up at the park for Chief Seattle …just for what he said so nicely in his ‘address’ to that theme.

    The wedding chapel I built with straw bales and spray-on stucco is being dedicated as a memorial to another of those who have gathered by this stream (Pope John Paul). In final I find myself…. gathering the stars that have fallen from Heaven…and putting them in some ontological arrangement. It keeps me in good company anyway.

    Lisa, I think you have a real magic in working with people. Every time I’ve participated in one of your Mastermind Mondays, I’ve come away with something solid, practical, and truly helpful for my business. And, each time I’ve connected with great people who have really good ideas to offer me.

    That’s where your magic comes in. I think it’s because you are guiding us in the Mastermind process, we all end up being smarter and more imaginative than we were when we walked in the door! I know I am.

    Thank you so much for your generous sharing of this process – it really makes a difference!

    Lisa’s Mastermind Monday is a rite of passage for all Bizniks. I attended my first with very low expectations, but I was caught by surprise as Lisa’s smile, positive attitude and deep understanding of how to motivate brought out the best in everyone. The event was incredibly helpful and I have been addicted to Mastermind Monday ever since.

    This is a must do for anyone in Biznik if you want to get the most out of belonging.

    I recently had the pleasure of meeting Lisa during one of her Mastermind Mondays. She radiates amazing positive energy. During my complimentary coaching session with her, she pointed out something to me that has had me looking inward and pondering. She is very insightful and I’m hoping to be able to work with her more someday. Maulitta Brown

    Lisa Bradley has a great coaching and motivating style, and it comes through in talking with her, emailing her for advice, and in her “Mastermind Mondays” workshops. Thanks to Lisa, and working with other Biznik people, I came out of the workshop better able to prioritize my writing, web content, SEO and poetry projects, focus on the writing and web content projects that combine my creativity with my business, and put several action items in place that will help me be more successful. Under Lisa’s guidance, another writer and I are now accountability partners. We’re going to help each other focus on the writing and editing projects that will best help us grow our businesses. Finally — and I think this is a really key part of workshops like these — Lisa facilitated workshop attendees in helping other workshop participants. We formed teams and helped each other not only identify challenges we face, but also potential solutions in marketing, organization, scheduling, positioning, and business operations. I came away with a tangible “to do” list from people who were not marketing, communications or writing professionals; that list will help me grow my writing and marcom business! Thank you again, Lisa, for giving to the community! David Kuhns, writer, web content consultant http://www.cyranowriter.com

    Lisa has an extraordinary way of drawing you in. She is warm and makes you feel you are the only one in the room. Her coaching techniques are innovative and were most helpful to me. I really enjoyed her class along with getting some of the tools I need to improve myself and the way I work.

    Some event hosts hold back their best stuff to entice you to pay for their services. Lisa brings the whole enchilada and serves it hot. You can’t help thinking, “If she gives that much value for free, she must really be something for a fee.” And she is!

    I worked with Lisa for a little bit more than half a year.

    With her guidance, changed my confidence in business.

    I got unstuck out of insecurities, procrastination and creative blocks.

    With her gentle but firm coaching, I raised my standards, got out of limited thinking habits and was able to create the life I want.

    I give her great praise for her coaching. She really did help me see my dreams become reality.

    Thank you Lisa.

    Ok, there’s great speakers who create a whole new type of thinking for the business professional, then there’s people who not only bring a new type of thinking, but empower you to become what you learn.

    Lisa is that person.

    Sure, I’ve only been to a few Biznik events, but Lisa is AMAZING. Her gentle smile, and wit are endearing, and her ability to create a comfortable learning environment is second to none.

    If you have a chance to go to only 1 Biznik event a month, you need to go to hers. She’s the REAL DEAL.

    Yes… I’m shouting.

    Thanks again, Lisa!!!

    Lisa Rocks!

    For some reason I’ve always been suspicious of coaches.

    Lisa impressed me right from the start when she took the time to set the space with me at the beginning of the session.

    She was very honoring and respectful of my process – so much so that she actually asked permission before pushing me to look at something I was avoiding! (It was our first appointment and she didn’t feel we knew each other well enough yet to just move forward undaunted without checkin in with me first.)

    If you’re looking for a positive respectful coach who will encourage you to push you past your own perceived limitations — look no further than Lisa’s shining face!

    She is truely a light in this world.

    I have attended two of Lisa’s Biznik events so far, and had an amazing coaching session with her.

    Like a bar of soap in the shower, I had a glimmer of a great idea that I just could not get a hold on. But with her grace, delicacy and laser sharp insight, in a matter of minutes the idea was clear, concise, and had a set of tangible goals associated with it.

    Lisa is a remarkable gift to those of us who need a bit of help achieving our full potential.

    Thank you Lisa for providing the space for the magic to happen between creative and magnificent people. The room was filled with an electric exchange of energy for over two hours! What a gift!

    MasterMind groups are an amazing answer for those of us working by ourselves. The expertise represented by all participants was amazing; the creative and practical ideas flowed. Not only did I walk away feeling freshly energized with purposeful, constructive ideas to take on in my business for the next two weeks but I have my own “executive management team of advisors” now to be accountable to. Wow!

    Thanks again for facilitating this happening.
