Thank you to everyone that emailed your questions in! I greatly appreciate it. I thought I would share some of the questions that I received the names have been omitted!
Do you really have experience helping people start their own business?
Yes! I have helped friends and families for over 10 years in some form or fashion understand their passion and turn it into a business or help them set up a non-profit.
I’m afraid to start my business- exactly what is my first step?
Being afraid is OK it is when you let that fear STOP YOU- that is NOT OKAY. The first step is to call for your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION. Always put your ideas on paper! It is easier to keep up with and it makes it a reality when
you see it written down.
I just need to find a grant that is going to give me money to fix my house and maybe go back to
Researching for a grant is easy. Applying for a grant and actually receiving one is NOT EASY. There are a ton
of grants out there that may help you do what you would like to do HOWEVER; you must do the ground work
FIRST. Meaning you have to be willing to do the work required for the grant.
My friends are always asking for me to “hook them up".
Well if you continue to ‘hook up’ your friends they are the only ones benefiting from your hard work! At some point you have ask yourself the question why are you just giving your information away?
I really want to start something but I don’t have the money and I have can’t afford to pay someone to help me.
There are things you can do first. For example your business plan, organizing your thoughts and ideas of how you want to run the business what product or services you are going to offer. All the while you can be saving for the things that you will need money for (i.e. licenses, forms, and applications).
These are just a few of the great questions that I received.
I ask that you do just one thing before the day ends….OR before your begin your day
Take a pen and paper and write down ONE THING that you are going to DO DIFFERENTLY TODAY THAN YOU DID YESTERDAY! It can be as small or as big as you choose. For some saying fewer curse words than the day before or
perhaps, not complaining the first 10 minutes you’re at work.
I promise if you do this exercise every day you will start to notice change in your thinking, your attitude and most of all your ACTIONS!

How many have heard that phrase and wondered what it meant?
It is a wonderful dream to be your own boss. How many of you have day dreamed about no longer having to listen to someone else give you orders on how they like things done, make coffee for someone, sit through boring meetings, or commute to work?
I know some of us, me included, always thought we could do a better job than our supervisor or manager? Especially when they made stupid mistakes or took too long to make a decision –but as employees we had all the
Actually, being your own boss is harder and requires more work than working for someone else.
There is a price to be paid when it comes to being the boss. The cost is often your sleep, your time, and sometimes making the wrong decision. When you are the boss, owner, manager, CEO you are the final decision maker.
Every decision that you make affects your business IMMEDIATELY!
I have had days like that when I simply have to say “ I am paying the cost to be the boss.”
It means living with a life altering decision for your business that will affect your family or finances, it means having others look to you constantly for the answer and to make that ‘right now’ decision.
Suddenly the tables have turned and you are the leader. So what do you do when you find yourself paying the cost to be the boss?
1. Stop and think about the decision you are going to make. Is it going to affect your business now or later?
2. Do you have to make the decision now?
3. Who is the going to effect? Who is involved?
4. Research and make sure you have all the necessary information first
5. When in doubt- seek someone else out. There is nothing wrong with asking for advice from a mentor or trusted advisor.
Consultants or business coaches, often fall under the category of trusted advisor or mentor. It is my job to help you navigate through some of those decision making process. Having a consultant around provides you with a level of confidence that someone else has been where you are and understands the frustrations you are facing.

Use this time to ask questions that you or a group of friends may not know the answer to, or if you need an idea on how to get started!
I look forward to being speaking with you and helping you along your journey.
Remember that song? Of course you do! Friends are awesome! However, when it comes to friends and business sometimes things are NOT that awesome!
Take a look at the following scenario:
You and your friend have talked hours on end about the great business idea that you both have. A decision has to be made on how it is going to look, how everyone’s way life will change and how much better it’s going to be.
There is a BIG difference between being friends and being business partners. If your friend is a procrastinator now, they will be one when you are business together!
If they are too tired from work to work on the business – they will always be too tired.
Some questions to ask you and your potential partner:
1. Who is going to be the final decision maker?
2. Who will actually do the work of the business?
3. Who is in charge of the money and who will handle the finances?
4. What happens when one person is not pulling their weight in the business?
These questions are not meant to break up friendships however; it is a guide to help open discussions on important topics.
If you need help having that difficult conversation schedule your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION so that I can give you some pointers on how to get started.
