Commitment to your
Even before clarifying your vision, ask yourself
if you and your business want and are ready for big success? Human
beings have many reasons we stall and avoid what we think we want.
And while shrinks make money helping us figure some of them out,
I am here to help you cut to the chase. Why? Because I care. I
relate. It's fun. And I'm good at it. Humans are a fascinating,
loveable, confused lot capable of true art, brilliance, greatness,
progress and love. That's big. You are big.
Number one ingredient in your success is committing to it.
“Until one is committed, there is
hesitancy, the chance to draw back — Concerning all acts
of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that
ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence
moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never
otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from
the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen
incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man
could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can
do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power,
and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Before you can achieve anything difficult or
worthwhile, you have to commit to it. That commitment means you
will stay the course when it gets confusing or difficult and despite
setbacks. That is the beginning of the passion required for success.
It's a simple concept. Very simple. Very powerful. And key. You
will have the power of commitment for what truly matters to you.
It's part of human nature. But you may have to dig to find out
exactly what that is. I'm here to help you dig. Once you find it,
you will have the key to realizing your dreams.
Your heart chart
I help you hone in on your successful business
by considering and defining your vision, your brand and your clients,
as you see outlined on this site. My EmbodyProfit system's
heart chart illustrates this cycle for success. I'll share with
you how each component leads to the next and guides you where you
need to go. This is how to fit the pieces of your successful business
together into an ongoing flow for your gorgeous, happy biz life.
What's your vision?
What do you want? What do you dream? What do you see? Oddly enough,
people often neglect this foundational piece of establishing
their business. Once you start focusing on this key component
of success, it becomes obvious how helpful and necessary this
So what's your vision? If you can't easily state
it, how can you expect your customers to be able to find you? This
disconnect is keeping your customers from you. The good news is:
it's actually fun! Because whatever really floats your boat is
the very thing that's going to float your customers' boats too.
I'll help you get to the core of what matters to you and your community.
Your people, path & payoff
This is the start of my system for looking at the whole picture of your entrepreneurial
Read more under brand and get in touch to dig deeper.
Who are your people? What is your path? What
is the payoff your business provides? Defining these is critical
to your success and it's lots of fun. The process is not so tough
once you get going; you'll wonder why you didn't do it all along.
But most businesses neglect to focus on this kind of clarity and
then wonder why their profits aren't so clear. I'll help you clear
off the mud and bring in the sun.
What's at the heart of the matter is the "why" of
your business. (Thanks to Simon Sinek of Start
with Why and Greg Habstritt of Simple
Wealth for inspiring aspects of these concepts.)
The "what" of your business is pretty simple. You build
furniture or you write books about cats or you are a doctor, musician,
teacher or hula hoop expert. Okay, good. Thanks for telling us.
Someone who wants what you do, make or sell says okay, now I know.
But does that incite commitment from a potential customer? There
will be many other people who do that too. Not exactly the way
that you do but there will be lots of other options. That alone
does not create big success and that's where the average business
“How” do you
The way you do what you do is getting a little closer to what distinguishes
you from others. When the world was less technologically connected,
the "how" of how you did what you do was apparently
more compelling because when somebody found someone who did something
well, they were glad. We still are. But it's a big world with
really easy access today with the web and other resources. So
even "how" you do what you do so well isn't enough
to float those valued customers' boats. There will be competition.
And in the realm you're going to, there's no such thing as competition
because your value is unique.
“Why” do you
The "why" you do what you do is where the juice is. This
is the heart of the matter, literally. When you connect your heart
to others', you hit a home run — or a "heart run.” This
is your and our (and everyone's) recipe for success. You don't
have to be a "feeling" person (and logic is a good thing
too) to realize that this is what connects human beings — in
business, in friendship, in love.
Driven by passion
Any successful business will find
or create its community. One of the reasons art and business
do go together (despite some creative people feeling that business
is scary or bad and some business people feeling that creative
people are "out there" or
hard to understand) is because the same thing that drives creativity
is what drives extremely successful businesses: passion. And
everyone has one. You may just not have found yours yet. It's
part of my passion to help you find yours.
Passion — and love
— is the great motivator. Sometimes we feel passionate naturally
and it can be great and sometimes it can feel out of control.
How do you harness your passion if it feels inconsistent? How do
you maintain it if it can be rocky? How do you find it if you don't
feel it for what you are doing? How do you turn your fire into
profitable results? There are ways and means, peeps.
Connecting from your heart = value
How beautiful is it that the explosion of technology leads us right
back to our hearts? The incredible ability to connect with millions
of people the world over has created an environment where it's
easy to find resources, easier than ever before. And at the same
time, it has made what matters clearer than ever before: that you
reveal and stay true to your heart. When you do, your customers
will find you and you will be rewarded in every way that counts.
The satisfaction of connection, of going to places beyond your
dreams, of community with like-minded souls. And money will naturally
follow because you will be creating value.
The real "commodity" we all have
to offer and want to share with each other is love. I'm willing
and proud to state it. It's not just time for art and business
to shake hands; it's time to realize that love is at the core
of everything unshakeable and successful. It's the underpinning.
And there's no shortfall of love. There's plenty to go around.
It's at your disposal any time you choose to tap into it. Welcome.
So glad to have you here. In fact, it's lovely.
