Letting go of the Jealous, Fear and Comparison Trap

Letting go of the Jealous, Fear and Comparison Trap

I want to share something I’m not proud of, but first let me ask you a few questions that I hope you’ll ponder.  Have you ever felt jealousy creep in when you’ve heard about another woman starting the same kind of business as you?  Have you ever given precious brain space to fears that she’ll be more successful than you, and fear there isn’t enough to go around for everyone?

Don’t answer yet.

Social Sharing as a Magnet for Abundance

Social Sharing as a Magnet for Abundance

You know when you sit down to create content for your brand? How do you feel in that moment?

So many of the women entrepreneurs I meet would describe that moment as frustrating and overwhelming. They would procrastinate it with any excuse. This social sharing that we are doing every single day is stressing the hell out of us. We are creating from that place of stress.

Self-Care: Why To Fill Your Cup Before Shit Hits The Fan

SEO is Dead

SEO is Dead

As an entrepreneur, how do you connect with your target audience and build brand visibility so that your audience can find you?  In order to build your visibility, there’s a vital component called SEO, aka search engine optimization, that you just cannot ignore. I admit, SEO is not the sexiest part of doing business.  In fact, most lady bosses I know have a love-hate relationship with figuring out how to get their content on the 1st page of Google, Yahoo, or Bing.  But let’s face it, there’s nothing fun about coming up last in a Google search while your competitors are being found before you.
