Goals That Get You Where You Want to Be

This past week I invited a colleague to come to one of my Biz Diva Mastermind Groups to give the members direction on how to create a financial budget for 2016. Everybody in the group uses QuickBooks and the interactive presentation was tailored so everyone could take what was being taught and translate it into […]

I Choose Authenticity

I woke up this morning with low energy and not much enthusiasm for writing my weekly blog. Having knee replacement surgery scheduled in ten days is putting me through my paces. Getting ready to get ready is a lot of work! Rather than push myself, I decided to share something written by someone else that […]

High Touch Connecting

The value of high touch contact is on my mind. In this day and age we are so technology focused that we appear to have forgotten how to pick up the phone or send a handwritten note. We often follow up with prospective clients or strategic partners using email rather than picking up the telephone […]

How Do We Achieve and Maintain Prosperity?

How do we achieve and maintain prosperity from the practical, financial and/or professional perspective? “Prosperity” comes from “prosper,” which means “to succeed in an enterprise or activity.” One key to prosperity is to move through experiences rather than fighting against them. Bring your inner wisdom, intuition, and instincts into every decision and strategic action you […]

Experiencing Unexpected Forgiveness

As I wrote last week, I have recently gone through a series of challenging interactions with clients. Today I am going to write about forgiveness, in the context of misunderstandings and mistakes. Most significantly, I experienced a wakeup call when I was so graciously forgiven by someone who had every right to be angry with […]

The Angst of No Forgiveness

What do you do when there’s a breakdown in communication with a client? How do you handle the situation and come to a resolution? After reading this commentary, please comment and weigh in, I would like your ideas and feedback. I find I am greatly impacted when someone I am working with is dissatisfied or […]

National Association for Women in Business Meets the One Page Business Plan®

I just returned from the National Association of Business Women (NAWBO) national conference in San Antonio, Texas. The most uplifting part of the trip was watching thirty two of the sixty NAWBO chapters from across the country receive their First Star in the recently launched Healthy Chapter program. Receiving this first star required each president and/or […]

You Can Choose to Move out of Overwhelm!

Let me introduce you to my amazing guest blogger, Susan Tollefson. She is a time management and productivity specialist. She helps business owners who are living in crisis mode, are frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of energy it takes to operate their business, and are frequently encountering obstacles that prevent them from following through with their […]

Another True Confession from the Biz Diva

Back in 2008 I was working with Susan Tollefson, a time management specialist, to figure out how I could increase revenue and expand my business. At the time, in addition to my consulting work, I was doing contract work as a business consultant for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). I liked the variety of […]

Are You Satisfied?

I’m still reading Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Outliers, The Story of Success”, and my attention was once again captured when I read his thoughts about what it takes to have a satisfying work life. This concept isn’t given a lot of coverage in the book, in fact it isn’t more than a couple of paragraphs, but […]
