How I Multiplied My Income By 7 X

How I Multiplied My Income By 7 X

This month is a HUGE celebration for me. I’m celebrating paying off my $9,000 Stars investment…within one year! One year ago, I courageously decided to invest in Stars, a high-end coaching and mastermind program. Although I had achieved success in certain parts of my business up to that point on my own, the financial part of my business wasn’t one of them. This needed to change because if I was going to be in my business FOR REAL, it HAD to make money. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to sustain it. Giving up wasn’t an option so it was time to get serious. But I was scared… I didn’t have the money. My husband was wary but tried his best to be supportive. I feared putting the investment on a credit card and not being able to pay it back. What I feared even more was letting down my husband…and most of all letting down myself. Despite these fears, I took a deep breath and made the decision to trust. I set the goal to have the investment paid off in one year, and I’m so proud of myself because I DID IT! Not only that, but this June, I multiplied my income by more than 7X the money I made last June when I started Stars! To give you an exact idea of what that means, in June 2013, my business made around $1,000 and I needed to supplement my income with various other side jobs. This year, in June 2014, I made $7,684.38! Now that’s starting to look like a real business! Where else can you invest your money with that...
How to Handle Hate Mail

How to Handle Hate Mail

Today I’m going to talk about something that’s not so cheery: hate mail. Even though it’s not a fun topic, it’s super important to address if you’re on the path to going big in your biz – because the greater your reach becomes, the more you open yourself to the possibility of hate mail – we can’t please everyone right? (what, you didn’t know that?). So… you just received your first “hate mail”? Let me guess - someone wasn’t happy with something you said, something you did, or the price you charge and they decided to send you a nasty email letting you know. After reading the hateful email, you feel like you have a dagger in your heart, you want to cry and you think things like: “Maybe they’re right…maybe I am ripping people off…maybe my services really aren’t worth that much…” (you question your value) or… “I can’t believe they would think that I have bad intentions, my only purpose is to spread love and joy to everyone I meet…” (you get defensive and victimize yourself) or… “Maybe I shouldn’t be doing this…I should quit now…nobody likes me or cares about my business…” (you want to give up). You wonder if you should respond to their email. You think: “Maybe if I just explain myself, they’ll change how they feel.” Don’t do it! I give you this advice from personal experience. Although most emails I receive are warm and fuzzy, there’s been a few times in my entrepreneurial career that individuals have chose to share how they feel about me in extremely unconstructive and hurtful ways. The...
