I believe

it takes courage to start a business – and a bit of crazy to continue

when things get tough it’s not time to back down – it’s time to step up

Ego & Fear give you excuses to keep you where you are – don’t let them win

everything we do is “on purpose” – even our mistakes

we have the potential to play bigger – if only we’d believe in ourselves more 

there’s nothing more scary – or as rewarding – than daring to live your truth

women entrepreneurs can gain financial freedom faster – and do it their way

freedom takes guts – drop the “shoulds”

self-trust is your greatest asset – claim it!

– carolyn herfurth

I asked a few of my clients what they believe –
that they may not have believed before…

 I believe that my business can fully sustain me.

– Martha Zlatar

 

I believe that when I drop the story, 

act as though “of course I can” 

and take action, 

I am unfuckingstoppable. 

– Brynn Breuner

 

I believe that my business is on the track of  thriving rather than withering. 

I believe gratitude is in order : )

– Laurie Morse

 

I believe I’m crystal clear about my thought leadership.

– Cari Vollmer

  

I believe for the first time I can visualize exactly what I am loving 

offering to clients that can enhance their lives.

– Judy Helm Wright

 

I believe that I CAN. I believe that it’s possible

I believe in me – fuckin’ A rite I do!

It’s been said that I’m a “challenge junkie.

Personally :: I’ve pulled Dukes of Hazzard-like stunts from moving cars. Biked through Ireland. Danced on stage at the Sydney Opera House. Performed stand-up comedy. Jumped out of airplanes. Moved to NYC on a whim.

Professionally :: I’ve started multiple businesses. Founded a large-scale business expo in the Midwest. Walked away from a perfectly good business to start something else. Launched a series of one-day events in multiple cities.

And I jaywalk in New York City. (Ha! Who doesn’t?!)

But that’s not where I started. 

I started taking tiny little chances as a kid. Then bigger ones as a teenager. Then even bigger ones as a college grad. I worked up my “challenge muscles” and it became easier and easier to take on the bigger risks and challenges.

What saddens me is that I see many entrepreneurs not playing up to their brilliance. Hiding. Not going after the thing they REALLY (maybe secretly) want to do.

So you play smaller than you’re capable of. You get sidetracked doing stuff that doesn’t really matter and before you know it, it’s tomorrow. And next month. Then next year.

And that really cool (or scary) thing you wanted to do is still just something you want to do, not something you’ve done. So you feel unfulfilled.

So what is it for you? 

What is that thing you’ve been wanting to do, but haven’t because you don’t know if you have the money. Or wonder if it’ll fail. Or think people will laugh at you. Or that you’ll be exposed.

Or maybe it’s something personal that you’re just waiting to do until _________ happens in your biz so you can actually go for it.

 

If any of this sounds familiar to you, I want to challenge you to a dare.

If there’s something in your personal or professional life that you’d like to accomplish but you don’t see how to make it work – or find you just haven’t gotten around to it because other things seem more pressing – I dare you go for it.

In fact, I’m so interested in you making “shift happen” for entrepreneurs that I’m going to walk you through 21 micromovements that get you clearer and closer to it becoming a reality.

It’s called Declare Your Dare :: 21 MicroMovements to Make Shift Happen.

It all begins Tuesday, July 1 and goes for 21 days straight through July 22.

It’s fun. It’s free. And it’s fruitful.

I double dog dare you to join us!

Knowing your highest priorities is the key…

Watch my video on pay time vs. no pay time that I did four  years ago. It’s still relevant today. (Don’t let the hair shock you!)

If you’ve ever had a case of guru-itis like I did at one point, you know the guru coaches who dangle the prospect of building your multiple 6 or 7-figure business.

And they make it sound like it’ll be so easy for you!

To get my take on the cure, watch the video by clicking below…

You know you’re doing your business your way if you’re experiencing multiple bizasms.

What’s a bizasm, you ask?

Take the first steps to align (or realign) what you want your business to do for you.

This is SO very important to know so that you can make great decisions for yourself, your clients and your business.

I’ll never forget a colleague’s remark about her experience with a coaching couple she had worked with. This smart, feisty woman said, “I may have just as well flushed my money down the toilet for what I got out of that program.”

She’s not alone. I’ve done it a bunch of times. And I talk to entrepreneurs every single day who tell me about things they’ve paid for, but not gotten a return.

This video addresses why you’re wasting money, how you’re doing it and first steps to stop the bleeding.

(Please forgive the video quality. I was experimenting with new technology and decided that done is better than perfect.)

p.s. I soooooo get it. Please do NOT blame yourself!

Dear Fear,

Why are you such a bully?Fear Monster

(I’d call you an asshole, but my 82-year old dad doesn’t like it when I swear.)

I meet so many bright women who are playing small because of you. 

These women have tried to play big. But despite their effort and investment and aspirations, it hasn’t worked the way they’d expected. Or been promised. So they got knocked back. 

And then they try again. And again. And maybe again. But it still isn’t working. 

They’re barely making ends meet. Sick, tired and depleted. Unwilling to trust themselves.

Because of you, they’re second guessing themselves. They believe they’ll never get to play as big as they’d envisioned. They’ve resigned themselves to a future of struggle and wishing for a miracle.

  • Why do you hide the fact that the next step to getting unstuck, is taking the next step?
  • Why do you distort that miracles appear in the possibilities we see for ourselves?
  • Why don’t you let us know that past experiences don’t control our future… we do?

I don’t expect you to write me back, because you’re too busy digging your venomous claws into Entrepreneurs everywhere. 

But I see you. I know you. I’m watching you.

p.s. Personally, I’m thankful you’re in my life. Because more than anything else I’ve ever experienced, you’ve forced me to dig “subterranean deep” to find my Truth. And having Truth on my side has made it easier to take you down the last few years. One decision at a time.
