Barbara Corcoran’s Badassery

A friend shared this letter with me and I have to share it with you.

It's so badass and inspiring, you'll want to save it.

Which is exactly what I did.

I keep a "mindset" file where I put all of the amazing, inspiring stuff I come across so I can refer back to it whenever I need an extra boost.

And this went to the top of the list.

Go read it now. It will only take you a minute or two. I promise it's worth it. And then come back.

Are you back? Did you read it?

Amazing, right?

Don't you just feel like you want to conquer the world now? 

Or at least your coaching business?

It's a seriously powerful reminder of how much control we have over our own EVERYTHING.

We don't need to let anyone else's stuff (negative opinions, fears, etc) get in the way of what we want for ourselves.

And NO ONE has a clue what we're capable of. Half the time we don't even know.

And it got me thinking about the times in my own life where I've used other's opinions of what I wasn't capable of to fuel me to prove them wrong.

The swim coach who didn't put me in my normal place with the first relay team because I'd been sick the week before even though I told him I wouldn't let him down. He still let me be the starter for the third relay team (I came in first).

The ex who told me I was stupid and would never amount to anything (While I didn't get the Ph.D to prove him wrong, I did feel TREMENDOUS satisfaction when I did).

A few bosses here and there.

So how about you?

Have you let others negative opinions fuel you to greater things?

With love & joy,

Sometimes when I talk to coaches, they tell me they’re trying to grow their coaching business.But then when we dig into what they’re doing on a weekly basis…It becomes clear that what they’re really doing is creating an expensive hobby for themselves.It usually looks something like this… (based on my first few years in “business”

Do you want a hobby or a business?

Several years ago, I signed up for a course on selling from a coach who promised we could increase our conversion rates by 50%. That would be amazing if it were true. But it wasn’t.At least for me. About every 10 minutes in the course, I thought, “There’s NO WAY I’m doing that.”Her approach was hard selling at

How do you want to sell?

Recently I set the record straight that growing a business can be simple, but not always easy. And like many things that are difficult, it’s worth it. Because on the other side of this challenge is a more confident and more capable you. And a life where you make good money doing meaningful work that you love. Now to get there,

Tired of selling yourself as a coach?

Yesterday a gal on Instagram sent me a DM after she’d read one of my posts… “What the heck is a coaching framework?” Great question! If you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve probably heard me mention how important it is to have your own proprietary, unique to you coaching framework. But… what exactly is it? Simply put, a Coaching Framework

What the heck is a coaching framework?

A few days ago, I was talking with a friend who’s been struggling to find new clients. She’s a very smart and accomplished woman. She’d led a very successful career working her way up the ladder in a well-known Fortune 500 company. And then she left her corporate career to go off on her own and start
