Pressing On: Advice for Overcoming Entrepreneurship Hurdles


Being the boss sounds enticing, but in retrospect, most entrepreneurs would agree that it’s not the glitz and glam you may have believed it to be. True, there are perks to owning a business. You can work on something you’re passionate about, use your own visions, control the direction, and, if you succeed, you can also earn a decent living. Yet, to experience the positives of being an...

The Successful Biz’s Not So Secret, Secret- Knowing and Using your Brand Identity


This is a very thoughtful guest post courtesy of Chris.  Branding yourself (at least in my book) really boils down to knowing who you are, both as an individual and as a business and communicating it clearly. It’s ultimately a way of differentiating yourself from the  pack, in a way that’s real and resonates with your people. Do it well, and you will reap the rewards. Don’t...

Urgent- Time to Take Stock of Your Personal Inventory Entrepreneurs!


This is a guest post by a dear man named David from The W.O.N.D.E.R. Technique ®. I thought it a suitable follow up to my Thanksgiving gratitude post, as typically the holidays can become a time of year where we as entrepreneurs (and humans) begin to assess where we’ve been and where we are going. Sometimes you might feel down on yourself if you haven’t accomplished everything you set...

Thinking Positive- Hey Crazy… Do You Need Your Head Examined?


What do your mother, New Age “gurus” and pop psychologists all have in common? Just one thing actually! (I hope.) They all encourage you to go ahead and go for broke on anything that’s near and dear to your heart… all those things that you desperately want to achieve. Think about it. Even back in the days when you were just a wee little tot, your mom has probably always been at you to try to be...

5 Ways to Jazz Up Your Creative Chutzpah and Triumph Over Your Slump


If you’re the sort of person who makes a living out of using your imagination and creativity, then you know that losing the inspiration and the drive to write can sometimes feel like the beginning of the end. It’s like death in slow motion, like drowning in a sea full of sharks, like being left home alone in the middle of a snowstorm. It’s definitely not the most fun time of your life, and it’s...

Pipe Dreams are for Losers- Why Not Sculpt Your Own Reality Instead?


I used to be just like my neighbor. He gets up every day, gets dressed, and goes through the motions of his daily morning routine. Then he grabs his keys and heads out the door, off on his commute to wherever it is in this world he happens to work. You know… his J.O.B. And yes, that is a mild sound of disgust you hear (read?) when I say that! See I used to work a J.O.B. too. A hard and...

Ms. Independence, Baseball Bats, and Breakin’ All the Rules I Can


I’ve always been a bit on the ‘special’ side, since as far back as I can remember. And by ‘special’ I do mean ‘special’! My sister and I fondly call ourselves dorks on a regular basis, and wear the label proudly. Heck, I’m surprised we don’t have special t-shirts made by now that we wear in public. With afore mentioned pride. And brightly colored too! I’m not certain just where I got this...

Not So Secret Fundamentals to a Positive Mindset


Yesterday I talked about a positive mindset and how a lack of sleep can really put a damper on it. And I feel that a positive mind is really important to running a successful business as well as achieving personal goals, so I wanted to talk about a few key fundamentals to keeping your brain happy and focused. First of all, figure out what the heck it really is that YOU want from your life. Not...

The Sandman’s Secret Hostage Hold Over YOUR Positive Mindset


More and more everyday my belief in the power of a strong and positive mindset grows. There is nothing you can’t achieve if you focus your thoughts and intentions on it, and believe that you will get it, regardless of how hard it is or how long it takes. For some people though, it can be tough. Heck it’s tough for me at times too. And I notice that I am especially susceptible to a poor and...

Since revamping my website with revitalized copy and search engine optimization, my client load has more than doubled. What has really surprised me is the number of people who come to my office saying that the copy on my website is what got them to call me.

People feel like they get a real sense of me before coming to meet me. This is amazing and means so much in a field often clouded with fear of the unknown. Cori was fantastic to work with in that she went above and beyond to really get what I needed my copy to say and HOW. I think it required a lot of patience on her part and I am so thankful I trusted her to help! Thanks Big Girl Branding!!
