    How Do I Do It?

    I remember asking a health professional many moons ago how to stop eating candy. I was referring to chocolate candy, not the wimpy stuff. LOL I was asking a free health & fitness coach on an online chat. He began listing out different foods to eat and gave me windows of time to eat in. But he didn’t answer my question. ‘No, sir, I’d like to know HOW to stop eating dessert, please.’ He was completely stumped. He had no idea how to answer that. ‘You just don’t eat it,’ he replied. Ugh. That was embarrassing. I thought to myself, ‘Really? You’re the only one who can’t figure this out,…

    Solving Niche Drama

      What is a niche? Basically, it’s a group of people that you are speaking to when you start & grow your business. Ultimately, it’s your clients – current and future! It sounds pretty harmless, but there is definitely brain drama around defining a niche. Believe me I went through this confusion myself. Then I was able to see what was really important and get to work. Now I have what I like to call ‘the reverse niche’ process. My clients and I sit down and define all aspects of their business. We delete what doesn’t make sense and start building on the most helpful parts for the client and…
