Reaching out to others is an important part of personal growth and kicking your business up a notch. I share a few examples of how this pays off when you do it with the right intentions.
I even had someone reach out to me and it ended up as a great 2 year business exchange.

Do you meet all of your clients face-to-face? What does this mean for how you do business?
We can be limited in how we do business and definitely only have a specific amount of hours in a day. In this video I share a quick tip of how I can coach clients all across Canada and Internationally.
Maybe this brings about a mindset shift for you.
How will you apply this to your life and business?
What's the last thing you do at the end of your day? It depends on when you consider your day done and when you stop working. We focus so much on what we do during the day, but it's just as important to close off the day right.
Doing this ritual every night helps to set your business up for success. I share it in this video along with another bonus tip that helps me to get my day started off right!
See what mine is and let me know what you do for yours!
I know I look angry in the photo, but I'm just fired up about what I share. Sometimes life gets in the way of your business, so what do you do? I provide 3 choices when a commitment just feels like too much. This is my 1st video blog of 2015!!! See why I waited to do them again and how that was my business adjustment.
Look at your schedule… How do you feel when you see what’s in it? Excited? Nervous? Anxious? Wondering why we agreed to so many things? Yes, we have things that need to be done. AND yes we are getting things done. However, we are often overwhelmed by a full schedule. This happened to me.
Before I say how, I want to connect back to a blog I wrote a few weeks ago about how Sometimes you Gotta Say NO! I listed four reasons why you often have a hard time saying no and six questions to ask yourself so you know when to say yes. It’s such an important topic because time is so precious and often time is what we are striving for. FREEDOM OF TIME!
Even following my own advice I got myself into a situation when I felt overwhelmed with my scheduled and was wondering – why did I do this to myself?
Let me give you a little context. I had a second child in December so now with a three year old and a two month old, plus a thriving business I was limiting when I went out.
As much as I LOVE being a mom I was longing to go out into the networking scene again. I wanted to meet other women in business. I wanted to lead my networking group Dynamic Women in Action and I wanted to speak at Mom CEO Academy where I’m a partner. So when I knew my in-laws where coming for a visit I said yes to all invitations that were presented to me. Well at least those that met the requirements of those six important questions.
My 5-day week had:
While this would be a normal week for me pre-baby, it now felt a little INSANE! You may have felt this when you were moving or renovating. When you were sick. When there was a special time for a family member like a graduation, or spring break. When you had a major responsibility come up like caring for a parent, filing your taxes, or preparing for a test. Your schedule needs to factor these life events as well. I thought I did.
Do you do this to yourself? Pack your schedule so full that you have no time to breath? This happened to a client of mine this week who just felt so overwhelmed that didn’t think she could get through it all. Like she was just going to shut down or wanted to crawl into bed.
I have to admit that I LOVED being at each event. They filled me up, they made me laugh and they got me back into the networking and professional life I was craving. However, I list what I did to show the insanity. Not just for it being a lot of events in one week, but also since I was nursing my two month old every three hours. That was the game changer.
Hindsight though taught me two things: I am capable of taking on a lot and surviving, but also that I now have a NEW NORMAL.
That means that while I could do it all, and did get through it all - I don’t enjoy having a full plate for that long.
I gorged on events.
SO what do you do in this instance?
Here are 3 steps to not getting yourself to this place of schedule insanity:
1. Ask yourself how you feel about your current schedule. If it’s good test if you want to add in anymore items. If it’s not good, ask yourself what you need to remove or push to another week.
2. When it feels good. See what that schedule includes. Ex. how many meetings, how many days with client calls, how many hours of travel etc. and when in the week these things happen. This is your NORMAL LEVEL OF BUSY.
3. Then for upcoming weeks or periods of life that include something else that needs your attention like an illness, a course, a death, or any other stressor or milestone scale back.
Not everyone is the same. Some people feel that two nights out a week is enough while others think that’s an easy week. There’s no judgment here. Just figure out level of busy works for you and schedule for that so you can avoid scheduling insanity.
