Clearing Limiting Beliefs
In October I invested in myself and my business by hiring a (seriously expensive- skin in the game) business coach for a full year. We talk regularly. I’ve gotten magnificent guidance. I am being held accountable.

As she has me work this new plan, I’ve been bumping into many challenges and personality attributes that make me “me”. I am in the process of “clearing out” those limiting beliefs and behaviors that do not serve me while fully embracing those that do.

Facing the Challenge
Its been a few nights now… a light scrambling noise that starts then stops then appears someplace else for just a moment. I wonder if I am hearing things and yet resign to the knowing that a mouse has taken refuge in the warmth of the house.
Twitter for Business – Is it meant for you?
I love my Twitter Followers
I’ve learned a lot from you, bought products, read fascinating articles, and learned so much about what you do in your life and in your business. As a business account, I try to follow those who are “in my niche” so after awhile I have unfollowed some that just didn’t fit in with the direction I wanted to go. I also have created lists of followers – those whose tweets and comments have made a difference in my world and I want to hear more!
The First Step
When creating your on-line marketing plan, where do you begin? How do you determine what pieces you do next? Is what you are doing the best thing for your business? How much time and money will it take? Can I do it myself or do I need to hire somebody?
