Manifesting a Magical Business 2017

If you are planning your business goals out for this year , try something different. Instead of looking at your business from a left brain, linear approach, think about how you can tap into that underused creative right side of your brain to create the life and business that you would like. Business doesn’t have to be difficult, boring and deplete your life energy. It can be incredibly joyful, interesting and fill your life with an abundance of energy if you decide to make it that way. And frankly-it is your choice. This goes for you if you are a Real Estate agent, Interior Designer, Accountant or any small business owner (or large for that matter).Once you make a decision to look at your business from a more creative point of view-you will understand the mindset of the most interesting and accomplished entrepreneurs. People like Oprah, Steve Jobs, Mary Kay Ash, Arianna Huffington, Gary Keller, J.K. Rowlings, Angie Hicks (Angie’s List) all have one thing in common. They think outside of the box and who they are is congruent with how they “show up” in business. They are willing to trust their instincts and take the road less travelled, to differentiate themselves. When we create our businesses in a way that is congruent with who we are and what motivates us, we will tap into an abundance of energy and ideas for our business that can’t be found from a linear approach. Here are some ways to tap into that creative, magical entrepreneurial spirit: Decide on a Theme When you do your business plan this year decide on a...

Rut Ro- Are You Stuck in a Rut?

Let’s face it- we all have been stuck in a rut at one time or another and although we often desperately want to get out of it, we somehow stop ourselves. We wallow in being stuck as if somehow that will get us unstuck. Maybe we complain endlessly about the job we are in or a relationship as we spin on the hamster wheel of futility. Rut ro! How do we get unstuck? There is another way if we have the courage to step outside of ourselves and see the forest for the trees. Sometimes we have to trick ourselves out of it, by reframing our thoughts. Sometimes we have to dig a little deeper. Often we have to ask ourselves some compelling questions. Here are some ways to get unstuck: Catch Yourself– when you find yourself complaining about what is, reframe that thought to what it is that you really want. From a law of attraction perspective, when you keep focusing on what you don’t want, you get more of that. Your thoughts give you more of whatever you focus on. Every time that you focus on what you don’t want, replace that thought with what you would really love instead. Ask yourself-what do I really want? What would I do if anything were possible? If you place your thoughts on what you want instead of what is you become vibrationally aligned with what you want and that is where the magic happens. This is how you attract thoughts, opportunities and people who will support you in what you want. Trust Your Inner wisdom-Your inner wisdom knows what...

Self Love is Great for Business

I truly believe that our business is a reflection of who we are from the inside out and if we are not feeling great about ourselves, on some level, it will hurt us personally as well as professionally. Our confidence and belief in ourselves is paramount to achieving our goals and this is where self love comes in because without self love, we will be a puppet to everyone else’s “stuff”, we will put ourselves last and we will “cave” when we need to be strong.-Marianne Cherico Let’s talk first about what self love is NOT. It is not egoic, narcissistic and mean spirited. On the contrary, self love comes from a place of being centered and connected to your heart. When body, mind and spirit are connected we make choices that are not only in tune with our divine inner wisdom, they are better for the world because we shine our light authentically. We give the world the best of us and the world reflects that back. It’s not your job to like me…it’s MINE! ~Byron Katie Self love is a way of caring more about what you think about you and less about what others think of you. When you love yourself enough, you realize that the way that others see you is skewed by their own false lens. The way that they see you is not reality. It is their reality and it truly has nothing to do with you-especially if it comes from a place of trying to control or is mean spirited! Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone else’s inability to see your...

The Inner Game of Business Success

I would like to talk with you about the inner game of business because I truly believe that, as a business owner, the most important key to success is a solid mindset that will allow you to endure all of the challenges that growing a business presents. We can be our own worst enemies. If our mindset is off, we will actually sabotage ourselves by caving when we need to be strong and playing safe when we need to leap. The truth is that everyone approaches their businesses differently and there is no one single way to create a successful business. Your business model should be unique to you and get you excited. That is what will give you the inner energy to follow through when times get tough. And that is why strategies and tactics for growing a business are not enough. You can model all of the same strategies as other successful business owners in your field, but if your mindset is not in alignment and you aren’t excited about what you are striving for , you will sabotage yourself and often you really won’t understand why. Mindset is the foundation to your success! It keeps you grounded, hopeful, resilient and fearless. It will get you through the tough times and provide the energy and fortitude to keep you moving forward. When you implement all of the “right” strategies but don’t have the “energy” behind them, you will easily cave when you meet a challenge or obstacle. Innately you won’t really believe that you can handle the setbacks and you will default to old, limiting patterns that...

A Holiday Musing from My Heart to Yours!!!

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale As we are in the midst of the Holiday Season, we often get so caught up in all the things that we have to do that we lose the magic of the season. It is so easy to get caught up in finding the perfect gift, making sure that you will have fabulous home cooked meals and decorate your home to the hilt. And if that brings you joy-have at it! Just make sure that you are not bartering your joy by doing so much that you forget about being in the poignant moments-the ones that are simple-yet profound-the magical ones. When I think of the Holidays, I think of my Grandparents. They were and always will be such a huge part of the festivities. I remember sitting at the dining room table with my Grandmothers, all of us saturated in the smell of anisette while we laughed uncontrollably at silly family stories we never tired of. And although my Grandparents have passed-I still feel their spirit all around me and wish that I could hug them right now, as tears roll down my face, tears that hold my extreme gratitude and profound loss. I remember my beautiful Mother greeting us with her sparkling smile, donned in glitter, always making sure that our home was warm and lovely and filled with an abundance of food that was made with lots of love. She always went the extra mile. And I remember my adorable Dad giving anyone who would listen the...

De clutter for Success

As I get older I am much more mindful of weeding out a lot of things that are simply cluttering up my life. This goes for extra items around my home as well as clutter that fills my mind with self defeating beliefs. It also goes for limiting my obligations and weeding out people and situations that sap me of my God given birthright-my life energy and my joy. This catharsis opens up room for fresh new things, situations and people that will serve me better, literally and metaphorically. It is simply the way that energy works on a really basic level. Energy needs to be able to flow and be expansive in order to help us grow. In order to manifest whatever it is that we want to attract in our life we have to open up space to receive it. The universe literally waits for us to open up space in our life to deliver what we want. Clutter prevents this. It keeps us stuck in “same old”. When you de clutter, you will begin to remove blockages that stop the flow of energy to you and all things that are important to you. That includes your joy, your success, your relationships and your finances. Whenever you can choose between being stuck and constrictive or expansive and “in the flow” –err on the side of being more expansive. Once you get on a roll with de cluttering you will feel a huge weight lifted off of you. You will also start attracting more abundance into your life. Here are some ways that you can let go of...
