Time Honored Coach

Time is the single most valuable thing we have. I help busy business owners get out of overwhelm to work fewer hours in their business (without sacrificing income!) so they can get back to enjoying their business and their life again.

Monday Motivation - My face is my fortune.

Happy Monday Reader! We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you an important request. I could really use your help to grow my business! You've been here a while, so you know I'm passionate about helping people understand themselves, value themselves & their time, and protect their time. I'm happy to talk about this stuff all the time, for free. But unfortunately, we live under capitalism and I have to keep my freeloader cat in treats and kibbles. And that's NOT free! Said...

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I told you about starting the 100 Day Goal Journal, and I'm happy to report I haven't given up yet! I know, that might not seem like much of a win, but as your coach I know it's important to celebrate every success, no matter how small. I've completed a full 10 day cycle now. I will admit that results so far are mixed because being on vacation for nearly a week made it way more difficult to follow through. So I did not achieve my initial 10-day goal, but I was...

Hello Reader! We'll be at Equal Minded Café at 4327 Troost Ave, KCMO from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, June 27. There is no charge to attend the networking event, just like before, but please plan to purchase a beverage to support our host business. (Pro tip--they have an amazing chai at Equal Minded!) A couple reminders: Our host doesn't offer food during the week, so we can bring dinner with us if needed. Free parking is available on both sides of the street in front of the business. Please...

Happy Monday Reader! I'm on vacation this week, spending time in a house right on Lake Michigan. My plan for the week was to focus on resting, and thinking about the long term shape of my coaching business. I threw an extra wrench in the works at the end of last week because I also decided to start a 100 day goal! I'm not sure yet if that was genius or foolish--usually I would put something like that off until after my vacation. But starting that process is what inspired today's affirmation:...

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I realized something that I'd rather hide from you. It's one of my biggest fears, and I can barely believe I am going to write it out in an email, sent via the internet, which has the potential to be around forever. But here goes. I realized I'm a hypocrite. Ugh, I hate typing that out! I try my hardest to stay vigilant against this tendency, because it's one of the things I judge the most in others. But suddenly I realized that in all the times I internally...

Happy Monday Reader! Again and again, women tell me they feel guilty for how they spent their time. Time-related guilt typically comes up when we are doing one thing but worry we should be doing something else, whether that was spending time with family, doing maintenance around the house, or especially when we take time for ourselves. If you identify with this struggle, this week's affirmation will help! "I can be trusted to make the right decision on how to spend my time." When our...

Happy Monday Reader! Today is Memorial Day here in the U.S., which is the official unofficial start to summer! Technically, the summer solstice on June 20 is the first day of summer (and also my birthday!), but pools open by Memorial day, kids are out of school, and camping season is in full swing. Have you made a plan for how having the kids home for the summer will affect your business? Whether you'll have more distractions around, take more time off, or just want to enjoy the upcoming...

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I was reintroduced to the importance of basing everything in our business around our "why." Why did we start this specific business, instead of one of a dozen others we had ideas for? Why do we do things differently & better than the existing alternatives? What's important to us for the world, and in the legacy we will leave behind us when our time is up? With the answers to those types of questions in mind, we realize how true this week's affirmation is: "My...
