A great talent once said…..

?

“If I hold back, I’m no good.”

~Janice Joplin

Are you holding back?

Are you keeping your gifts and greatness to yourself?

Are you hiding behind fear?

Are you ready to be seen?

What will you do today to not hold back?

As an entrepreneur and business owner, I.D.E.A.S. are the fuel of success and progress.

Thank you for putting your heart and soul into all you do to make an impact in your life and the lives of all who are fortunate enough to know you.

Who controls your day?

Do you control your day or does your day control you?

I've worked with small business owners and entrepreneurs for over 30 years and what I know for sure is there is success in structure and there is peace in planning.

I rolled out an offer on Groundhog Day (movie reference intended) for Get Ready, Get Set, GOals™ 2017... because we often find ourselves at the beginning of each year in the same spot we were the year before....with good, but unfulfilled intentions.

I don't want that to happen to you again, so here's the deal...

Would you to invest $47 and 90 minutes of your time, risk free, to take back control of your day, know exactly what direction you're headed and what action steps are needed to have a great year?

If you haven't completely mapped out your goals for 2017...don't let your ideas, dreams and desires be just that...ideas, dreams and desires...join me live on February 16th for Get Ready, Get Set, GOals 2017™ .

This goal setting masterclass is yours at no risk! That's right if you're not completely happy within 30 days, and you've completed the workbook, I'll refund your money...no questions asked.

Let's do this!

With Gratitude,
Johanna

Why is today important?

Because its Groundhog Day and in Punxsutawney, PA the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil called for six more weeks of winter.

Phil crawled out of his burrow and saw his shadow. We’ll have more winter weather, according to Phil, who made his prediction this morning.

Groundhog Day is also the name of one of the greatest classic American comedies where weatherman Phil Connors, is forced to live the same February 2nd over and over again until he figures out the error of his ways…..

And what does this hysterical movie with Bill Murray have to do with you? Ask yourself….am I in pretty much the same place today as I was last year at this time?

In a year from now, would you like to look back and have a completely different answer…no excuses?

If so…bundle up for a few more weeks of winter and join me here for a Groundhog Day goal setting breakthrough.

In Gratitude,

I have something to share

If you've been reading my emails for the past week, you have probably figured out that I was up to something...

You're right!

I deliberately and intentionally sent a series of emails to poke at you about your goals for this year and what you are doing, yes doing, not thinking to bring them into being.

Yesterday, I invited you to write down what you want this year....not what you think you should do but what you want to do...then I suggested that you write down some actions you could take to make them happen.

I am 100% committed to helping you break the cycle of finding yourself beginning the year with good intentions and finding yourself a year later with the same good intentions.

I'm going to make it fun, easy and affordable for you to take the steps needed to accomplish your goals and get what you really want this year!

Check your email tomorrow morning...Thursday, February 2nd when I make you an irresistible offer to join me, and a bunch of other action takers, to Get Ready Get Set Goals 2017.

With Gratitude,
Johanna

Have you ever done this?

Set goals, new years resolutions...in your head?

Having every intention of....

  • Losing 10 pounds
  • Learning to speak another language
  • Taking dance lessons
  • Starting a new business
  • Finally taking that dream trip (as soon as I learn the language)
  • Training for a 1/2 marathon
  • Meeting someone new and having a romantic relationship

And so it goes until the next year comes around and it's like Groundhog Day with Bill Murray all over again.

How can you break the Groundhog Day cycle?

One of the first things you can do is write down what you want this year....not what you think you should do but what you want to do...committed not interested! Once you've done that write down some of the things you can do to actually make it happen.

And there's one more thing....take the time today, not tomorrow to work on this.

Let me know how it goes....I want to share your dreams and wins with you.

In Gratitude,
Johanna

Let’s Dance….

Let's Dance...

I was just thinking about what new activities I would add to my goals for the year that would create more fun and social engagement. Ta Da.....dancing!

Then I did a little research and found this from betterhealth.vic.gov.au:

Dancing has a wide range of physical and mental benefits including:

  • Improved condition of your heart and lungs
  • Increased muscular strength, endurance and motor fitness
  • Increased aerobic fitness
  • Improved muscle tone and strength
  • Weight management
  • Stronger bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Better coordination, agility and flexibility
  • Improved balance and spatial awareness
  • Increased physical confidence
  • Improved mental functioning
  • Improved general and psychological wellbeing
  • Greater self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Better social skills

Hope to see you include dance, especially if it feels awkward, to your 2017 personal/recreational goal setting 🙂 

Let's dance........

In Gratitude,

Bad Year Guarantee

Not to be a negative Nelly...just an honest observation.

No goals = no to low success. Guaranteed.

If you want your business to grow exponentially, get crystal clear on what you want to achieve, then write down your goals (this is the key....get your ideas on paper) and have an action plan in place to carry them out.

This is a living document now...don't put it on a shelf...put it in your hands every day.

Act now. Reap the rewards for years to come.

In Gratitude,

Are you keeping your promise?

As business owners, we make promises to ourselves, our clients, our employees, our vendors, our community....

Can you turn to yourself, your clients, your employees, your vendors and your community and say, without a doubt, "this is my promise to you and this is how I will keep my promise?"

Saying yes to those two questions is the foundation for building a trusted business brand.

If you would like to learn more, I have created a short guide that points you toward what it means to create a trusted brand and deliver on your brand promise.

You can get it for free here.

Fear or Fantasy?

By definition...

Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

Fantasy: the faculty or activity of imagining things, especially things that are impossible or improbable.

My question is...are either one of these real or are they both imagined?

I have worked with hundreds of business owners and entrepreneurs and the #1 thing that holds them back is fear. And when we explore where this fear originates it is usually fantasy, imagined and not based in truth.

What are you afraid of?

Success? Failure? Being judged?

Do your fears hold you back?

Is there something you really want that you're not reaching for?

How do you overcome your fears?

What will you do to overcome the fear of moving forward and having life on your terms and not fears terms?

I would love to hear about what bold action you took today to kick fear to the curb!

In Gratitude,
Johanna
