    Ep #80: BREAKING THROUGH FEAR w/ NAOMI ESTMENT

    Ep #80: BREAKING THROUGH FEAR w/ NAOMI ESTMENT

    If you’re like so many coaches, you approach marketing and selling as necessary evils when it comes to running a coaching business.

    Just a thought but… What if you’re totally wrong? 

    I know I was!

    I used to think of marketing and selling as the equivalent of medieval tickle torture (which is actually quite excruciating – it involves having a goat lick salt from the bottom of one’s feet and it seems goats can do this for hours on end.)

    Anyway, truth is, if you want a fool-proof marketing plan, do this: look in the mirror until you like what you feel.

    Marketing is all energy and emotion and connection.

    Do you feel amazing when you talk about your coaching services to someone, or does the thought make you uncomfortable? If it does, that’s what you need to focus on… nothing else.

    Forget your website, forget your newsletter, forget it all.

    And if you’re experiencing even an inkling of self doubt, then that’s going to hurt your business.

    Self doubt is inevitable when you’re building your own business but eventually you have to step into your role as a visionary – that’s how we become PROSPEROUS CEOs.   



    Seriously. There’s no way around it. The only thing you have to do when it comes to self doubt is DECIDE: Are you going to figure out how to get over that hurdle or are you going to stop right there, sit down, and say, “I’ll never figure this out.”

    Once she realized those were her only options – stop in front of the hurdle named “Self Doubt” or jump over it –  Naomi Estment decided she was not going to be derailed.

    Naomi recognized the AFGO that self doubt presented. An AFGO is Another Freakin’ Growth Opportunity and like I always say, starting your own business is an AFGO of epic proportions.

    Naomi is an amazing photographer whose specialty is getting her clients to feel comfortable on camera. But she was struggling to sell her signature program.

    Like so many other coaches, Naomi was very uncomfortable when it came to actually getting paid, a.k.a., asking for money.

    Then Naomi decided to take my $100k DNA  Mastermind for a spin and suddenly found herself inundated with consults. That’s when she was forced to make another decision:

    SELL or go broke.

    Ep #79: DEALING WITH ANXIETY WHILE BUILDING A COACHING BUSINESS w/ SYDNEY ALLEN

    Ep #79: DEALING WITH ANXIETY WHILE BUILDING A COACHING BUSINESS w/ SYDNEY ALLEN

    Anxiety is a Bitch. With a capital B.

    Actually, let’s make that ALL CAPITALS (with an exclamation mark and italics):

    Anxiety is a BITCH!

    It keeps you small, it makes you hide, it makes you think you’re gutless. 

    The antidote: Build a business! That’s what Sydney Allen decided to do and her business is now kicking her anxiety in the ass.

    Sydney spent more than three decades in a nursing career before deciding she wanted to explore life coaching, which lead to life coach training and the dream of starting her own business.

    I love the story about how Sydney would hand out pamphlets in the dark because she was so afraid to be “seen” and how she was able to step out into the light thanks to the deep work she was willing to do on herself.

    I met Sydney in my $100k DNA Mastermind for coaches who are seeking real transformation in the way they not only do business but their whole lives.

    Listen to Sydney’s story in the audio player, above, or in Apple Podcasts.

    Ep #78: THE ART OF CONSCIOUS AND DELIBERATE SELF TRANSFORMATION

    Yeah yeah yeah. You want to be a better person. You want to live your best life and all that stuff that Oprah talks about. But do you really?



    After all, just about anyone will tell you they wish things could be better. Or different. Or something.

    But my question is: How committed are you?  How badly do you want it?

    Is Self Transformation on your list of TOP 5 priorities? 

    If your knee-jerk response is,“Yeah, sure, of course it is, then I don’t believe you because there must be nothing knee-jerk about this!

    (BTW I say this with all the love in my heart and the biggest virtual kick in the pants I can deliver because I’ve been a recipient of such a kick and it made all the difference in my life.)

    ALL.        THE.          DIFFERENCE. 

    If you truly are committed to living your best life, you have to Woman UP and transform thyself. Listen to this week’s episode of MESS MAGIC MONEY in the audio player, above, or in iTunes.

    Ep #77: BECOMING A PROSPEROUS CEO OF A COACHING BUSINESS

    Ep #77: BECOMING A PROSPEROUS CEO OF A COACHING BUSINESS

    A woman said to me the other day, “I’m not interested in being powerful.”

    The statement made me curious about what having power meant to her. It made me protective of my own power.



    Shonda Rhimes, a powerful woman if there ever was one, was once quoted as saying:

    “I’ve seen plenty of powerful women squander a chance at power simply because they waited for someone else to give them permission to have power. There is no permission slip — you just have to BE powerful.”

    You just have to BE powerful.  And you get to define what “powerful” looks like!

    Let’s go Girls. This is not the time time to back away from the notion of being powerful.

    You get to define your power and use it in a way to do good in the world. The natural consequence of taking the role of CEO in your life and business?

    Prosperity.

    Ep #76: BE DO BE DO BE (Changing Your Emotional DNA)

    Have you noticed that whenever we want to change anything about our lives we tend to focus on getting something, or having something, or doing something?



    We put our attention on taking action.

    I have to eat less.

    I need to study more.

    I’ll just work harder.

    I have to get more clients.

    I need to make more money.

    But change doesn’t come through getting or having or doing.

    Change comes from becoming a different kind of woman – one whose emotional DNA has been re-programmed to do the things she was once afraid to do.

    BE, first. Then, DO.

    BE DO BE DO BE.

    Always in that order.

    Ep #75: How Pam Slim Made Me A Better Coach

    Ep #75: How Pam Slim Made Me A Better Coach

    Coaching can change your life in an instant. It can also make you a better coach. 

    In Episode 66 I told you all about my so-called Pam Slim Smackdown nearly a decade ago when I was in training to become “the best coach in the world!” Even back then I was living by my “be do be do be” philosophy, meaning that coaching isn’t something I “do,” it’s a fundamental part of who I am.

    Coaching As Spiritual Practice

    To my surprise, coaching has become a veritable spiritual practice for me and I attribute my clarity of vision to just 15 minutes with a coach who knew how to hold a space for me to figure out what was swirling around in my head. Another coach might’ve fallen for all my stalling and side-stepping but not Pam… she held my feet to the fire in a way that said, “You’ve got this and I’m here to help you figure this out.”

    Without exaggeration, that one coaching session with Pam brought me such clarity and it would forever influence the way I would “be” a coach. Today I hold my clients’ feet to the fire while simultaneously holding the space for them to sort through all the gobbledegook that swirls around in their heads. (Thanks, Pam, for showing me how it’s done.)

    Pam Slim graciously accepted my invitation to be a guest on my MESS MAGIC MONEY podcast and in Episode 75 we laugh about how “chill” Pam was during that coaching session way back when, all while I was silently freaking out(!) in my own head.

    We also talk about “leadership energy” (and why it’s so important to your coaching business), gratitude, and your power to shape the world through your coaching.

    You can listen in the audio player, above, or in iTunes.
