EP 107: How to Make $30K in 3 Hours a Week This Summer

Jul 16, 2019

Summer's here! It is that time of the year again where most of us are strapped for time and our productivity levels spiral down. I understand that many of you are really strapped for time as your kids are home for the summer or you are just really wanting to enjoy - like who doesn't, right? It happens to me too. Just last week, my kids were home between the holidays like from the 4th of July until they started camp this week and around these times, my productivity was low.

When this happens to you, you have to have a very clear plan and focus on the income-producing activities of your business.

And so, this week on the podcast, I did a special summer episode for you where I broke down the exact strategy that my team and I used to make $84K in just 30 days. I also discussed the step-by-step process on how I would actually go about this so that it would be doable for you to get to $30K this summer by working 3 hours a week.

How To Give Yourself Peace of Mind After Leaving The Career You Went to School For

Jul 09, 2019

A lot of emotions come up when you think about leaving the career you went to school for.

Most of the clients I work with have bachelors or masters degrees. These people are highly educated. Maybe they climbed up the corporate ladder and became a professional in the upper echelon of a company.

Many of you are high achievers and worked on this goal for a long time. Leaving that environment is causing some shame, guilt and pain for you. And that’s completely unnecessary.

Try to think differently about the situation. 

Move forward and step into the role that you were meant to have 

Anytime you’re looking at the past, and thinking about what should have been you’re not moving to where you want to go. Steeping in those feelings can actually have you moving backwards.

Let go of the pressure cooker that is the thoughts causing these painful emotions. Anxiety, shame, guilt, are all unnecessary and only serve to weigh you down.

The Definition Of A Great Coach Is Not What You Might Think It

Jun 19, 2019

What is the definition of a great coach?

Most coaches give you a framework that you can use to get to where you want to. Most coaches offer accountability as well. Most coaches are going to do everything in their power to make sure you reach your goals.

Great coaches are able to help their clients without compromising their own time and energy. They’re not concerned with doing things the right or the wrong way. They know that worrying about that doesn’t serve anyone.


Why Is Planning Important For Coaches


How to think about things in terms of whether you want to do things that are “right”.  You don’t want to make any mistakes or do anything “wrong”. You want to do the best things, do the things you're supposed to. I know this struggle a lot, I'm just like you.

I grew up working to get good grades, both my parents were professors. I was told to get good grades, do things right, get an A and anything less was unacceptable. It...

Stop Finding the Wrong Solutions to Your Problems and Actually Start to Solve Them with These Problem Solving Techniques

May 28, 2019

Problem solving is not only a valuable skill to have as a business owner but for life in general. It's important that we know how to solve problems and different problem solving techniques. However even knowing all this there is still one thing we must remember.

One of the most important things for you to understand as a business owner is that you will always have problems. This is a good thing though because this means you and your business is alive.

Some people come to me and say “Once I make X amount of money then I won't have any more problems.”
