The Green Eyed Monster - How Comparison is Crippling Your Business

Mar 14, 2019


Do you have a bad case of "Comparitonitis"?

Are you constantly checking to see how your business measures up to your competitors? In this post I’ll let you in on how that nasty little green eyed monster is standing in the way of your success!

Today I wanted to let you in on one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned and how it saved my business!

As new entrepreneurs, we tend to create our businesses in the image of something that we’ve already seen working.

I mean, it makes sense doesn’t it? See what someone else has created that works, and try to emulate what they’re doing to develop success for ourselves, right?

And certainly, to some extent, that’s not a terrible thing. It’s so much easier to not have to completely reinvent the wheel, by mimicking what someone else has already done successfully.

But there needs to come a time when the copy catting ends and the uniqueness of what you have to offer comes into play.

"Perfection" Is A Dirty Word!

Feb 20, 2019

Are you a perfectionist?

Do you have to make everything just so, before you can show it to the world? Well then this is the post for you, because perfectionism is crippling your productivity and your business. Below, I'm going to tell you about how it almost completely detailed my business before it even started and how I got past it.

In the beginning…

When I first started my website, I wanted it to be absolutely perfect! I spent weeks on end fussing over color combinations, logo creation, font choices, layout… and on and on!

 The first product didn’t go live on my website for a full month. I would make adjustment after adjustment after adjustment trying to get it absolutely perfect. Then I’d review it and start over because some part of it didn’t look JUST RIGHT!

 I toiled away needlessly for far too long on that one single product before it ever went live and once I hit publish………...

Determining Your Worth (PPV)

Knowing what value to place on your products can be excruciating for someone who’d still determining their place as an entrepreneur. You might feel if you set your pricing too high, you’ll be driving away potential customers. But if you set your prices too low, you’re destroying any real profit you might make.

Here’s what you ultimately need to get your head around… Your product value is not determined by the item you sell. ...

Am I Enough? Confessions of a Serial People Pleaser

Dec 04, 2018

Do you ever ask yourself the question… “Am I Enough?”

If you do, you're certainly not alone. Let's talk to you about the things that may cause you to ask yourself the question “Am I Enough?” and how to address them so they don’t end up holding you back.

Being a People Pleaser

As a female entrepreneur I have a bit of a stigma with this topic and if you’re anything like me you’re probably in the same boat. I affectionately refer to myself as a “Recovering People Pleaser”.

Being a people pleaser usually is accompanied by an overwhelming feeling of guilt, if your compelled to make everyone happy at the same time. And that guilt can feel like it’s massively amplified when you try to overcome this compulsion.

What most people pleasers have in common is an almost uncontrollable habit of saying “YES” to absolutely everyone and everything that they feel might need their undivided attention, regardless of...

How to Decide You Want to Be Your Own Boss?

Sep 26, 2018

As a little kid I was always goofing around with lots of different little "businesses". I had my toy cash register, my Snoopy Snow Cone Machine, my chalk board and desk that I would be the "teacher" to my poor younger cousin, who had little, to no say in the game of choice… And at every garage sale my parent's held, I was making up batches of brownies, cupcakes or cookies, that I could sell too on my own little table.

I was always trying out new ways to do something unique to make money on the side and to have something that no one else had going on. Now that I think about it, I guess those were my first ventures into entrepreneurialism.

I ended up having several different types of jobs over the years. In high school, I had seen how much money my orthodontist was raking in with each visit and thought that seemed like a really cool path to take. I got good grades and worked hard, but life happened and I never quite made it to dental school. I did end up becoming a certified...
