“Burnout Buster, Business Breakthrough Bite Sizes”
News You Can Use!
Special newsletter announcement this week! I have decided to rename this newsletter and focus on a new “Niche”.
My new niche is working with Entrepreneurs who have had to overcome “Adverse Childhood Experiences”.
The niche is for Heart Centered Entrepreneurs determined to break through the effects of adverse childhood experiences who want to make money doing what they love, attracting their clients by delivering an authentic marketing message while remaining sane and healthy.
You will hear more about this in the very near future but for now, it suffices to say that I am clear that there is a certain “psychographic” profile people possess who have had to overcome adverse childhood experiences and who chose to be in business for themselves.
Based on the conversation that I had below with one of my clients, I decided to create “bite sizes” news. After congratulating me on my weekly newsletter, which I thanked her for, I asked what she got out of it (I always want to know the “specifics”). She said that she scans through it, likes what she sees, and is looking for the “one bite size” piece of information that she can use. So I decided to shorten it and give one piece of advice per column. Let me know what you think!
“One Thing” Per Day Keeps The “Gremlins” Away!
Today I met with a past client to get an update on how her business is going. I always like to know from time to time how my clients are doing. I feel like a proud mamma when their business grows to a place where they feel good about it.
It happened to be a day where she wasn’t feeling so good and neither was I.
We got talking about the ups and downs of running/having your own business.
The “ups” obviously relate to getting clients and making money.
The “downs” relate to not having enough clients or making enough money and getting a “beating” by our own self-critic, because let’s face it, that is where the damage comes from.
When I asked her what makes it difficult for her to get things done, she said “it all depends on my moods”, which I agreed. I concurred by saying that when I teach 3 spinning classes per day (which I do twice per week now), the day after I am really exhausted and can barely carry through the day.
This led me to talk about making and prioritizing our choices.
Most often when people are overwhelmed with too much to do (who doesn’t) and what feels like “too little time” and not getting things done fast enough, I often ask them to set themselves up for success by focusing on doing “just one thing”.
“Easier said than done” she said “what is that one thing?” to which I replied “the one that helps you make money or bring in new clients”.
Yes it is the truth!
When we talked about one good client that she has, she remembered that she got that client by teaching a workshop. She then proceeded to say that she needed to create another one. That made me smile! 🙂
So moving forward all her daily actions will be geared towards teaching that one workshop.
As simple as that. This is her one action per day that will keep the “gremlins” away.

Of course there are many more other things to do in one day, but this is the one thing that we can do that will help us get directly more in touch with potential clients.
Health Tip – Focus on Service!
Each day I like to draw an “angel card” for the day.
I love this card… it states the following:
“You drew this card because you’ve been called into spiritual service, either as a healer or a teacher. The thought of conducting public spiritual work may trigger nervousness. Don’t worry though, this anxiety has no bearing on your readiness for service. It’s simply the ego wrestling to gain control through fear. The antidote is to focus on your higher self’s mission, which is loving service to the Highest.
(there is more to this but you get the gist) … At the end it says
“To operate out of your higher self, focus on blessing,-instead of impressing-others. Begin each session or seminar by opening your heart to loving everyone involved, and ask the question “how may I serve”? to put your higher self in charge.
Most often as an entrepreneur we get “caught up” in all kinds of things; technology, customer service, sales, making money or not making money and lose track of the reason behind what we do! When and if you are truly aligned with your purpose, money will come! To alleviate the stress of all these “to do’s” ask yourself the following “how can I focus on service instead of focusing on how to build a business”? Of course you need both, and if you truly follow your heart in the name of service, everything will fall into place!
