It's Time 
To Get Off The Hamster Wheel!

Just being in motion will never get you to your Big. To do that, you need to be sure you're doing the right things, in the right order, for the right reasons.

Enter the Take Action Now System (tm). 

This seven-step system clarifies the activities that are mission-critical to your success. It then walks you through a process for creating step-by-step action plans to implement those key activities.

The result? You get off the hamster wheel of motion-without-progress and get on a more direct route to more clients and more money.

Forget about being busy; start getting focused by downloading your no-charge PDF version of the Take Action Now System (tm) today.

Fear comes in many forms, and nobody is immune to it.  Whether you're afraid of spiders, clowns, failure, success, or anything else, you will get a chance to confront that fear at some point in your life.


World War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker observed, "Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you are scared." Which means that every single one of us who has stepped into the unknown to start a business is really, really brave.  Woohoo for us!


And - lucky us! - we get to flex those bravery muscles on almost a daily basis in our businesses. If the next time you're faced with a scary task and you feel more like the Cowardly Lion than Eddie Rickenbacker, take heart - and courage - from the following.

Tip of the Week

Don't wait to feel brave to do something scary. Do the something scary so that you can feel brave.
Counter-intuitive as it may seem, the only way we develop more courage is to do the thing that spooks us.  If you wait to feel brave, you're likely to wait a very, very long time. 
A Really Good Resource

If you're fantasizing about a program that will show you how to become more courageous, check out 

This book by Margie Warrell  shows you how to lay a courage foundation, how to act with courage, and how to be with courage.  Inspiring and challenging!
How's This for Success?   


If you don't put yourself out there and take some risks, you're unlikely to reap any rewards.  However, if you DO the thing you fear, the Universe often rewards you hugely. Fine artist Michele Tremblay is a case in point.


Michele's passionate about flowers, but not just any kind of flower. They're amazingly detailed flowers created from paper that measure up to 24" across.  


This is a relatively new venture for her, but she's putting her work out there.  Her latest reward: having all her flowers on display in Millésimé, a high-concept design store located in Philadelphia. They'll be on display the entire month of June, so be sure to stop by and enjoy them if you're in the area.
