If you experience fear as a business owner and are having side effects such as, procrastination, not getting your goals accomplished, not following up with prospects as promised or simply never getting started on marketing your business - you're not by yourself!

Considered as the #1 reason why most women don't accomplish their business goals, fear can be a huge obstacle to your success. However, it can also fuel your success when you know how to handle it and get past it.

More Connections, More Clients, More Money!

Do you want to know the secret to how big companies are getting customer/clients to say "yes" to their services and products?  Do you want to know what only 10% of businesses in your industry are using to get more than 75% of all of the clients or customers?  It has everything to do with developing an efficient follow up system!

woman thinking followup2If you would have followed up on important tasks, connections and opportunities, would you be further ahead with your business? Most business women answer a resounding yes to that question and yet many will also admit that they have no “Follow Up System” in place.

For a small business owner, following up is just not about making sure things get done. It’s also about structure, organization and it’s part of a bigger system that can assist you in accomplishing your business vision!

Don't Take Self-Doubt Into the New Year!

by Trina Newby, Business Success Coach

woman self doubt article2Towards the end of each year, I'm always encouraging business women to strategize and take action on what it is they want to do with their lives and business for the next year. You see, many women are feeling like they are in a time warp, because they are back at the same spot they experienced the previous year.

I recently listen to a powerful message from multimillionaire Brian Beane.  Brian became a millionaire in his 20's and he lost it not understanding how to manage and grow his money. However, he regained it by aligning himself with experts, mentors and inspiring individuals who knew the true meaning of wealth.

He also asked an all-important question and that is "Someone's going to get wealthy from your money, who will get yours?"  You see everyday, we make decisions that either add to our financial well-being or take away.  It's amazing that we as women tend to be impulse buyers, but we invest in things that don't give us a return.  I think it's time that we invest in ourselves in more ways than one!

by Trina Newby, Business Success Coach

Just as we get excited about getting payments from our clients or selling our products or services, we should also get excited about more time being deposited in our personal time account each week!

I'm a firm believer that no time management system will work for you unless you're totally committed to managing the time that you've been given.  Time is going to pass on regardless of what you decide to do with it.  However, when you use it wisely it becomes a most powerful tool with which to accomplish your dreams and goals!

Letting Go of Negative Baggage!

by Trina Newby

woman_suitcases_stacked

As women, we are complex, emotional and incredible beings.  We have a tendency to hold on to everything that we experience in life and some of those things that we hold on to can be quite negative and are impacting our lives in a negative manner today.  Many refer to this as holding on to negative or excess baggage.

"I'm going to get to it", "This year, I'm going to write my business plan", "I'm going to start an exercise plan - for real" and the list goes on and on...

We've all had the experience of saying what we are going to do and life runs us, instead of us managing our lives and we never get around to it.

Sometimes the best gifts can come through your email and so it did for me.  On a Friday, I opened my email and a link to a most inspirational video really put things about life in perspective.  I was inspired so much so that I decided to place it in the Personal Development Channel, because anyone wanting to improve their life and achieve success should see it.

Enjoy!

Broke, Busted & Disgusted
"Succeeding In Spite of the Challenges!"

What do you do when you need an income, money to market your business and nothing seems to be working in your business?  That’s the question that many business women are asking today and the answer is believe it or not, all within your reach!  It’s very difficult to keep moving forward when you have to jump over many hurdles and you haven’t had a break-through.  Not only does it make you feel broke, but it works on your psyche and causes chronic stress and sometimes even depression.

vision_imageMeeting Up with Your Greatness!

If you were to open up a magazine and saw a featured success article covering your life what would your story be? If you were to write your obituary, what would it say? What is it that you are purposed and driven to be and do? Whatever you see yourself accomplishing and being, it is defined as your vision and the goals and actions you implement to reach your vision is your life plan.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV). What is it that you want out of life? What do you want to experience? What would you like to pass on to your bloodline? What will be your contribution to your others in your community, people, the world? What is your purpose in life?

It seems everywhere I turn news about the economy is sounding gloomier than ever and as business women, we can't help but worry and wonder how this will impact our business. While many consumers are tightening up their wallets and spending less they are also still purchasing much needed services and products.

5 Ways to Create the Life You Want!

Who are you and what is it that you want out of life?  These are questions that we should all seek the answers to and examine frequently.  It is when we are honest about what we are feeling and what we want to experience that we can begin to live a more fulfilled life.

As I experience the blessing of getting older, one of the biggest lessons I have learned is that the more authentic you are with yourself the more meaningful and joyful life becomes.

My grandmother use to say, "If you live long enough you will have problems and challenges, good times and bad times".    Of course, when I was younger the true meaning of that statement didn't give me an "ah-ha moment", but now that I have lived life a little longer I now welcome those wise words.
