how to make decisions

Successful People Embrace Being Uncomfortable

By | Empowered Women | 13 Comments

This past weekend, my 5-year-old granddaughter, come down the stairs. She had her cute little blue ruffled swimsuit on, and a beach towel in her hand.

Granted we live in California and it was a sunny day but it still was too cold, in my mind to go swimming. “Wotcha doing?” I asked, as if I didn’t know.

“I’m going swimming,” she answers, and out she went.

I followed behind. I was sure she would decide it was just to cold to get in. But no, she jumped in without a second’s hesitation with both feet. In just a few seconds she jumped out, wrapped herself in the towel and warmed up.

As soon as she was a little warm, back into the pool she went. She knew how uncomfortable she was going to be and she still jumped in and, “went for it.”

 

A Habit Of Successful People Is They Embrace Being Uncomfortable!

 

I thought to myself how brave she was to jump into the pool the second time knowing how cold the water was. As an entrepreneur I meet so many people who want to create changes in their life. Many want to create more financial freedom or time freedom, have a more healthy lifestyle or build an online business. Always with change there will be some discomfort.

The problem comes when they feel uncomfortable or unsure. At this point, many stop moving towards their dreams, they give up. Successful people make it a habit to embrace being uncomfortable!

Imagine what your life would be like if you embraced your feelings of fear, discomfort or uncertainty.

Imagine what it would be like to accept these feelings as part of a challenge or learning process. As each of us grows and learns we must accept the uncomfortable feelings as a part of the normal process of building a new future, in order to move forward in our personal and professional lives.

As I continue to learn and accept new challenges, I know the feelings are there because I am learning something new.

Like anyone else I don’t what to face failure, rejection, self-doubt, or criticism. But these are the things that come with growth and growing a business. When these feelings challenge me I remind myself of why I chose to be an entrepreneur.

I wanted to have control over my time. After my daughter died I realized how precious life and time is. We help other women know that they too can create the life they desire.

You can share your stories, experiences, and talents with the world and create Your Life Without Limits! These are the things that help me stay on course and continue to learn, grow, and achieve success in my life.

I know that as empowered women we must embrace the feelings of being uncomfortable.

Every successful person has faced these feelings and gotten comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Like my granddaughter that jumped in the pool, jump in with both feet and expect to be uncomfortable. To have the lifestyle of your dreams face the challenges and accept them as a positive message that you are learning and growing.

Picture yourself 6 months from now knowing you accepted the challenges in front of you.

What does your life look like?

As you face the challenges in front of you, you will start to feel better and better about your life. You will know you are leading the life of your design.

I encourage you to live the life of your dreams!

Baby boomer women entrepreneurs

Women Baby Boomer Entrepreneurs

By | Baby Boomer Business, Online Business, Women In Business | No Comments

More women than ever are starting a business with baby boomers being the largest group of new entrepreneurs.

As a baby boomer myself and having spent 30 years in the health care industry one of the questions I get asked is why start a business now?

Women baby boomer entrepreneurs start their own business for many of the same reasons other women start their own business.

Baby boomer women start a business to supplement their retirement, be their own boss, leave a legacy, share their knowledge, take control of their future and many more reasons.

For me, I chose to partner with my daughter in our own business, to have control over my time, to help other women in business, to leave a legacy for my children and grandchildren and to contribute to my community.

Many baby boomer women are changing the ideas we have about retirement and developing a business with skills they learned in the work force or have turned their hobbies into a business filled with passion.

I have grown up in a family full of entrepreneurs, but I was still surprised at how now is a perfect time to start your own business. With internet access and a computer, You-tube, Facebook, Google and so many other forms of mass communication, it’s easy for anyone to get information about their business in front of millions of people.

I remember spending hours writing ads for my husbands brick and mortar business.The ads went into a small local newspaper. I laugh now about how many people read that little local newspaper compared to the access we have with the internet.

I know exactly why so many women have become entrepreneurs and online business owners. With a computer and the internet you can be a business owner from your home, and it’s a perfect match for women entrepreneurs.

Like many baby boomer women I was ready to start a new phase in my life and having my own online business from home was a perfect fit.

I feel fortunate to have had a successful career, and to have helped my husband build a very successful business, but even more fortunate now to take everything I have learned and help other women build their own business.

I love the opportunity to influence and empower other women. Women can have the lifestyle they choose and I am passionate about showing them how they can have the life that they dream of.

Weather your a baby boomer, mom, or a women looking for an alternative to the job she has now, my partner Elena and I are excited to help you live your dream life.

successful women entrepreneurs hold onto their power

Successful Women Entrepreneurs Hold Onto Their Power

By | Empowered Women, Successful Women, Women In Business | One Comment

One of the personal and professional struggles I had, was giving away my power. The reason it was a difficult lesson to learn was because I didn’t always realize when I was giving it away.

I didn’t realize each time I felt I had no options, opportunities, or choices was because I had chosen to look at my life that way, and was giving away my power to chose my life path. I had chosen to give up my power.

Successful women entrepreneurs hold onto their power. When I was working at a job I spent huge amounts of hours in the cooperate world. I thought I had no choice. In reality it was totally my choice to continue that lifestyle. When I realized I had a choice I took a leap of faith and made changes and became an entrepreneur.

So what are the habits of successful women entrepreneurs? One habit is to be extremely aware of their thoughts.

Your thoughts control your attitudes and therefore your behavior. Unlucky, unfortunate or bad things happen to all of us it’s how we chose to react to it that determines what we think and do.

We can feel defeated and powerless or we can learn from the experience and use it to grow. What I have found is that one habit of the successful businesswoman, is to use the experience as an opportunity.

Last summer I had the chance to be around a group of very successful entrepreneurs in the Bahamas. I found it interesting how some people used the same experience to tell about the hardships in their life and how others used the experience to ask questions, learn and grow their personal, and business lives.

The one thing that I found the most interesting was to watch one of the speakers, David Bach a very successful author and entrepreneur, use the time he wasn’t speaking to learn from the other speakers and people at the conference. I thought no wonder he is so successful, he was always using his life as an opportunity to grow and learn. Successful women do that also. They take every opportunity to learn and grow, therefore not feeling like a victim.

To take control of your life, circumstances and opportunities is to hold onto your power. To be a victim or feel you have no options is to give your power away. When I felt stuck in my old job I was giving my power of choice and options away.

I feel we all deserve to live a full abundant life, to live a life without limits. To change our current reality we must first change our current beliefs and habits.

My partner Elena and I are excited to help you live your dream life. We have a complimentary seven-day training series, “ Living Your  Life Without Limits,” available for you. In this series we will help you determine what your dream lifestyle includes.

We will help you set up goals and strategies so you have the lifestyle you dream of for yourself and your family. Get your complementary lifestyle tips by filling in the form at the top of our home page, LiveALifeWithoutLimits.com.

My Dream Lifestyle

By | Women's Health, Women's Lifestyle | No Comments

When I first left my corporate job I hadn’t given a lot of thought to my dream lifestyle. I thought about freedom.

The freedom that I was looking for was time freedom. I wanted to be in complete control of how I spent my day. If I wanted to spend time at a school function, with my kids, I didn’t want anyone tell me I couldn’t.

I never wanted to worry whether or not I could get time off to spend with a sick child or with my elderly parents. Time freedom for me was huge, and I had become very frustrated with the feeling that my life had spun out of control.  The thoughts about my dream lifestyle came a little later.

I spent a few weeks really thinking about what I wanted in this next chapter of my life.

I set some goals and made a dream book.  Some of the goals have been accomplished, some have changed but one of the most important goals in my life has been consistent and steady since way before I had written any goals or done a dream book.

In fact my mother instilled the value of maintaining my health in me when I was a young.

My mother was a “health food nut,” way before it was popular. There was no such thing as white sugar, white flour, or white bread in our house when I was growing up. So I hadn’t given it much thought until I put the pictures in my dream book. I realized when I put the pictures in my book that health is a top priority in my life and has been since I can remember.

Being an entrepreneur and working from home has made it a lot easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

As part of the corporate world I was working long hours but because my job was in the health care industry my hours were always changing.  This made it impossible to have regular sleeping, eating and exercising habits.

Today because I work from home I have total control over my time so I have been able to have a regular schedule that has included exercising, healthy eating and a “normal” sleep schedule.

Working from home has changed a lot of things in my life.  There has been a lot less stress, less work stress but also less stress because I am able to have balance between work and my family’s needs, which has also promoted a much healthier lifestyle.

A dream lifestyle is different for everyone.

My dream book has lots of pictures of a women’s healthy lifestyle, but also pictures of family time, travel, charities, adventures I want to have and lots more.

What does a dream lifestyle look like for you?

I would love to hear what you want in your dream lifestyle, drop us a comment below and tell us about it.

To Your Dream Life,

Top 3 Reasons For Having An Online Business

By | Online Business, Women In Business | No Comments

I have to admit that before I started my business from home, I had pushed aside the thought many times thinking “I just didn’t have the time.”

But once I made a decision and commitment to being an entrepreneur my only regret was not making the decision sooner. I quickly learned that time freedom was one of the greatest benefits of having my own home business.

I am just like everyone else, it wasn’t until I was mad as hell at my corporate job that I turned in my resignation letter and became a mompreneur. So here are the top 3 reasons for having an online business.

1. I am my own boss. Being the CEO of your own company gives you a ton of time freedom. Imagine what your life would be like if you were the CEO of your own company and your companies headquarters was right down the hall from your kitchen.

It gives you the freedom to do what you need to do for your family, doctors appointments, kids school activities, and day to day household activities all while running a business from home.

We all have many rolls in our life, mother, father, daughter, son, spouse, friend, and community member. Each roll requires time and balance. As a female entrepreneur, you have the freedom and flexibility to balance all the different parts of your life.

One of the best parts for me is being in control of my time. I can determine my schedule from day to day. I plan my day out to include the things that are important to me like time to exercise, and time with my kids.

2. You can work from anywhere. Last week when my son-in-law was very ill we spent days in the hospital. For us most of the time was spent anxiously waiting for surgeries, tests and scans to be done, and for doctors to come by and give us any new news.

I had the freedom to work from the hospital with my laptop.

No boss to call, no worries about what was going to happen with my “job.” I had the freedom to be where I wanted to be for as long as I wanted. When you have your own home based business you have the same freedom to travel, or enjoy things you are passionate about such as a hobby.

What do you feel passionate about? As an entrepreneur you can do what you love.

3.  Helping others is the cornerstone of being a home entrepreneur. As a business owner you help other people solve their problems. The better you are at helping other people the more successful of a business owner you become.

This is what I really love about having my own business, I have a feeling of great pride and satisfaction knowing I am helping other women achieve financial and time freedom.

Female entrepreneurs are the fastest growing group of online business owners. It is easy to see why so many women are attracted to having their own business from home.

You have the opportunity to balance all the different hats you wear on a daily basis. My partner Elena and I feel that every one of us has the potential of greatness. We are here to help you to build discover and build your greatness and have the life of your dreams.

We have a complimentary seven day series, “Living A Life Without Limits,” to help you get started. In this series we will help you determine what your dream lifestyle includes. Join us as we help you set up your goals and strategies. Lets work together to help you live a life without limits.
