What If Your Client Isn’t “Getting Better”? Nisha Moodley Shares What To Do

If we’ve been hanging out for a while, you’ve probably heard me talk about my dear friend, mentor, and soul sister Nisha Moodley. You may remember Brent and I leaving our home here in Connecticut for two months to escape the winter, shift our routine and enjoy the time and location freedom we’ve created. This year we traveled the coast of California and completed our journey with a trip to see Nisha and Noah in Utah and meet her baby boy, Raven. We had so much fun connecting as mommies and enjoying the Summit community. Over the past five years…

Why You Should Never Feel Awkward Asking Clients to Sign Contracts

Especially when you’re first starting out as a coach and you’re grateful to begin landing clients, it can feel a little icky to also ask them to sign contracts to work with you! I felt that way back when I first started, too. I no longer fear contracts, I LOVE them. I was reminded recently how important it is to have a healthy relationship with contracts early in your business, when my younger brother reached out to me for support with trouble he was having in correlation to taking his business to the next level. My brother is amazing, he…

How To Instantly Bring Love Into Your Day (And Your Business)

I’m actually writing this a few days before I go to Disneyland with my daughter Violet. I still think it’s so amazing how I can go to the happiest place on earth and serve you with really exciting resources at the same time! We’re so lucky to have systems that work for us and resources available to fulfill our wants and needs, aren’t we? Sometimes the resources we need are technical systems that allow us to automate and schedule business-related things while we’re experiencing life. Other times, the resource you need is self-care based. You need a way to switch…

Choose Your Own Theme Word for The New Year (And Beyond!)

Everywhere you look right now, people are creating their goals and to-do lists for 2017. There’s that expansive feeling of possibility in the air—like we all get a chance to start over or build on an area of our lives in a huge way. Everyone’s telling themselves,”This year will be THE year.” But how many years have you started on your goals and to-do’s, then slowly started forgetting them? Then by the end of the year, they’ve completely fallen by the wayside and you haven’t learned what you wanted or experienced that great transformation you’d hoped for? You end the…

How To Find Your Writing Alter Ego

You’ve probably heard lots of conflicting writing advice over the years, right? Your teachers wanted you to write in a formal, academic way.

Or is there another way entirely to connect to your tribe through your writing? It’s a Sneak Peek edition of Wake Up Wednesday where I take you inside Mentor Masterclass so one of our featured mentors can share her wisdom, just like…

Going Through a Tough Time? This Single Sentence Can Reframe Everything.

When I was in 6th grade my parents couldn’t afford to send me to camp. I remember listening to all my girlfriends celebrate their new hot pink Barbie sleeping bag while planning for their first solo adventure. I was able to convince my principal to give me a scholarship to go! Yay! But my bag was packed with hand-me-downs and any supplies we could gather from family and friends. Which was a massive oversized flashlight and an orange sleeping bag with stains all over it and a tear down the outside. In some ways this is how I felt when…

How To Answer The Question, “So, What Do You Do For A Living?”

Even when you’re passionate about what you do, as a life coach you can still start to feel a little nervous when someone asks what you do for a living. I used to feel this way, too. For most people, it’s just small talk, and the answer is simple. Dentist. Teacher. Accountant. For us, it can sometimes be a little bit triggering. What if the person asking the question doesn’t even know what a life coach is? Where do you start? On this week’s Wake Up Wednesday episode, I’m giving you a sneak peek inside my all-in life coach training…

What Does It Mean To “Be” Your Brand?

As a life coach (or future life coach), you’re running a deeply personal business. In fact, you’ve probably heard that your brand is really YOU! And if you feel a little uncomfortable with that sometimes, you’re not alone. I get these questions all the time from my students in Mentor Masterclass: What does it really mean to “be” my brand? What if my personality is a little boring or I’m going through a dark time in my life right now? Should I still try to be my brand? Shouldn’t I try to have a brand that appeals to the most…
