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.

As the saying goes, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."  Those intentions can apply to both your personal and professional lives.


One of my intentions on a personal front is to eat more greens and vegetables.  I'll periodically stock up on these good-for-me items so I have everything in place for a healthful meal...and then I just don't get around to using them.  The result?  My refrigerator turns into a science project, with no-longer-identifiable, used-to-be-food items.


That's because the only difference between salad and compost is time.


If you have a bunch of great ideas for building your business, use some of the following tools to ensure that you act on them before they turn into the business equivalent of compost. 

Tip of the Week
Maintenance is always easier than damage control.

One of the many lessons learned in our move from Minnesota to Iowa was that the best time to take care of a task is as soon as possible after noticing it needs to be done.

We realized, to our chagrin, that we'd been willing to coast on way too many "little jobs" around the house.  They weren't emergencies, so we tended to be lazy about dealing with them as they came up.  Then we decided to list the house for sale.  All of a sudden those multiple little jobs - which would have been so easy to take care of one at a time - merged into a big honkin' ugly project.

Moral: The more you let things build up, the more stress and effort it takes to handle them.
A Really Good Resource

Whether it's a matter of eating well or keeping active, your health is one of the most important assets you, as a business professional, have.  Better yet, you have 100% control over it.

If you've been threatening to do something about your health sometime, maybe the time is now.  Dr. Deepak Chopra, co-founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, is offering yet another free meditation program.  This new 21-Day Meditation Challenge (which I always think is such an interesting oxymoron) begins March 11th.
How's This for Success?

While you can't predict exactly when  opportunities will arise, you
can get out and rattle the cosmic bushes so that those opportunities can find you.  That's what Nicole Langer did when she was looking for a new challenge.

Nicole has been a rock star in the direct sales field for many years.  Last year, she just happened to call a company the same week they were looking to hire someone at the corporate level.

Long story short, Nicole is now the Eastern Regional (Director) for Jewel Kade, a line of artisan jewelry.

The Bottom Line

If your To Do list and project reminders and business-development notes were vegetables rather than paper, would they be turning to compost even as you read this?

If you're one of the many, many entrepreneurs whose creative skills are way better than their implementation skills, maybe I can help.  My skill lies in showing you how to toss aside all the non-essentials that are sapping your energy and focus, then create step-by-step action plans for implementing the mission-critical activities. 

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...
