    Mastering Accountability

    Mastering Accountability

    At the start of a new year or season, many of us are deep into goal-setting mode. But while we are focused on setting our intentions, creating our gameplans, and mapping out our strategies, we also need to work on mastering our accountability — to ourselves, to our clients, to our team, and to our biggest, boldest goals!


    Remember: if you’re not regularly holding yourself accountable, it’s going to be a lot more challenging to turn those dreams income reality.


    In this week’s episode of The Business of Thinking Big, I dive into the finer points of accountability, what sets highly successful business owners apart when it comes to crushing their goals, and 5 simple steps that you can take right now to make this quarter the most powerful (and profitable!) 90 days in your business to date. Want to unlock your accountability superpower? All you need to do is press play!


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    Why so many of us struggle with accountability (and why external accountability is so effective!)  What it means to become a student of YOURSELF — and why it’s one of the best things that you can do as an entrepreneur How to secure support in other areas of your life in order to clear a path to your goals

    Big Brands I Love and Why

    While everyone has a unique approach to the way that they run their business, I believe that we can all benefit from a little bit of inspiration every now and then!

    These brands range from century-old industry pillars to innovative newcomers, but they’re all crushing it in one area of business or another (and I’m happy to admit that I’ve borrowed from several of their best practices over the years).


    From the incredible community building of LEGO to the forward-thinking evolution of Netflix, get ready for a mini-masterclass in business excellence, taught by some of the world’s biggest brand names.


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    The power of standing strongly behind your product — and going above and beyond to make it right when things go wrongWhy the kind of excellent service that creates customers for life requires more than simply answering questionsHow LEGO drives incredible customer engagement — while simultaneously gathering extremely valuable customer feedback!

    Shifting our Energy around Sales

    Shifting our Energy around Sales

    If I asked you to list your three favourite things about running your business, I’m willing to bet that selling wouldn’t make the list… and I get it! Sales can feel intimidating, and the idea of selling your offers can bring up a lot of emotions. You might think that you need to be pushy in order to “close the deal,” and that can feel really uncomfortable for many people. 


    But here’s the good news: sleazy, hard-sell tactics are outdated. You don’t need to behave like a stereotypical used car salesman to be successful at selling your offers, and you definitely shouldn’t feel nervous about sharing the amazing value that you bring to your clients!


    This episode of The Business of Thinking Big is all about working through the mindset challenges that foster resistance to selling, so that you can learn how to sell in a way that feels good. Listen now and learn how to rewrite your sales story and achieve your revenue goals with more ease!


    In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌
    How to assess your own emotions around the idea of selling and uncover the limiting beliefs that hold you back from confidently putting yourself out thereHow to cultivate joyful feelings around the tasks that you tend to resist the most Powerful energetic shifts that you can make right now around the concept of sales
