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.

I've encountered a lot of situations lately in which I observe that getting into motion in one area of my life seems to promote taking action in other areas.  For example, as my business continues to grow and develop, I find myself taking big steps to make changes in more personal areas, too. As I like to put it, the personal work is getting  sucked into the energy vortex created by my business-development activities.


While this can create so much activity that my head occasionally feels like it's going to explode, overall I really enjoy the way my various efforts support one another. I also realize that, if one area of my life needs a boost, I can indirectly provide one by ensuring that I'm producing results in another area. Way cool.


If you're in a position where one or more of your ventures needs a shot in the arm, see how well the following tools will work for you. 

Tip of the Week
If you're feeling stuck, do something. 

If you're like me (and I know I am), "stuck" is a lousy place to be. It's often difficult to figure out how to dislodge ourselves from inertia and get back into effective motion.

When faced with this situation, a very simple yet effective way to un-stick yourself is to do something. It doesn't have to be a huge task; something as small as clearing off one corner of your desk can be enough to get you out of paralysis and into productive behavior. 
A Really Good Resource

If we're going to be honest, we have to admit that one goal of being entrepreneurs is to experience abundance, both financial and emotional.  If you find that goal to be somewhat elusive, maybe Teresa Romain can help.

Teresa is a prosperity coach whose company, Access Abundance, shows individuals how to...well...access the abundance that is  available to them right this moment.

I love a recommendation she made at a recent workshop. She encouraged us to move, stating that it's a powerful means of shifting one's emotional state. Whether it's skipping around your house, wrestling with your dog, or cranking up the stereo volume and dancing like a wild person, movement will unblock stuck physical energy, and that, in turn, can unblock areas of emotional, physical, or spiritual stuckness. Not only that, it's fun - which makes it a great two-fer.
How's This for Success?

Getting unstuck may only require something minor, like taking a walk. Sometimes it means starting a whole new business that provides more of what you want. That's the approach Kate Fitzgerald and Dwight Ludvigson chose when they became owners of a G'day!Pet Care franchise.


Kate and Dwight each had their own business, but they'd gotten to a point where things were feeling kind of stale. They weren't willing to settle for that, so they started exploring other options that would allow them to work together doing something they both loved.  After serious research, they discovered G'day! and realized they'd found their match.    

Now, instead of doing work that's simply "okay", they delight in providing care services for people's beloved pets. Going to the dogs is working out great for them!

Maybe I can help.  My specialty is providing a flexibly structured process that compassionately kicks you out of neutral and into forward motion, enabling you to act with clarity and confidence.  If that sounds like something that could keep your head from exploding, call or e-mail me to set up a let's-see-what-we-see, get-acquainted call. 

Wishing you joy on your journey into Big...
