Why Hard Work Isn’t Enough


Most of us know someone who works hard, but has no time to enjoy the success they have created.

As an business owner, I know you are like me and that working all of the time was not the #1 reason we decided to create a company.

The thing is, it takes more than reading a book or just changing your thinking to grow a successful business and have a delicious life. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

But if you’ve already tried marking off your calendar for free time and making plans on the weekend and you are still working, or thinking about work a lot…

…the answer isn’t to give in and work more.

It’s to stop and understand how to move from talking the talk to walking the walk.

Thankfully, I’ve got a phenomenal resource for you – my friend and colleague Wendy Watkins.

If you’ve been asking yourself questions like…

  • How do I create habits and rituals to support my success and fulfillment?
  • How do I leverage my income to allow me to have (and enjoy) more free time?
  • What do I need EXACTLY to increase my confidence and honor the boundaries I set for myself?
  • When will I finally have the life and business I have been dreaming about?
  • Will I ever be happy and satisfied with my life and business? (You can be… I promise!)

Then read the rest of this – because help is on its way.

Wendy is a smart lady

  • She’s owned her coaching company for 13 years and started a second company, Simply Flourishing, LLC in 2012.
  • She has studied personal and professional development since she met Dr. Wayne Dyer when she was 17.
  • She has worked with hundreds of successful companies and entrepreneurs to help them build a profitable business and delicious life.
  • As one of the first million dollar sales people for Aveda, she loves sharing her strategies on sales and marketing.
  • She is also a happiness pioneer and wrote a book that helps people, like you, create a Recipe for Success.

And this fall, she’s hosting The Big Shift – in Atlanta, GA on September 10, 2016.

Unlike other business events, let me assure you about several things:

  • Wendy is all about CONTENT and actually TEACHING you how to implement strategies that will not only help you achieve more time in your life to do what you love, but to also create more success to fund those activities.
  • She’ll give you simple TOOLS you can use right away to shift from just being busy to being productive and getting the results you tell yourself you will achieve.
  • This is a chance for you to engage and connect with other business owners who are TAKING ACTION and not just talking about growing their business — they are actively DOING it. (Think: JV partners, referral partners, and strategic networking opportunities.)

If you know Wendy, you KNOW she’s all about helping you create a delicious life, which includes a successful and profitable company. But what you may not know is how much she can help you.

I highly recommend Wendy and everything she does—and I think you’ll agree she’s a real resource when you are committed to creating more of a flourishing business and life.

It doesn’t need to be hard to create success and fulfillment — and if it is, now is the time to work smarter, not harder. Wendy can get you there. Get more details and save your seat for The Big Shift today>> https://gs191.isrefer.com/go/BSE/LW/

I Secretly Wanted to Play Big!


I remember when I first became a coach and I booked my very first business workshop across the country. It was Ali Brown’s first Online Success workshop. (This was before her blueprint and during her cowboy hat phase.)

I signed up for the event, booked my airline and hotel and then panicked. Why was I spending all this money?

In working with my coach, I realized that I wanted to PLAY BIG. I knew I had a bigger vision of myself than being a struggling coach with one-on-one clients.

Here’s the deep reveal for me… I also wanted to be in the room with other people who were PLAYING BIG too.

I wanted to be around them, soak in the energy of highly committed, creative business owners. I needed to surround myself with those who had big dreams and knew they could make a bigger impact in the world AND who wanted to make great money doing it.

It was a huge breakthrough for me to claim that. And you know what? My business expanded because I took at that big vulnerable risk to step into my dream.

I wanted to share my story because I know you may be feeling the same way.

You’ve probably seen pictures of my Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea. It’s coming up this October.

Retreat notebooks

I’ve heard so many of you say… I’ll go to that… ONE DAY.

One day… you’ll step into your potential. One day… you’ll decide to play bigger. One day… Well, next thing you know… a year has gone by… or five years.

And, you will still be where you are today. I know that isn’t fun, in fact, it can down right suck. (Sorry, perfect word for it.)

It’s true there’s a time for everything. But if you keep waiting… it will never be YOUR time.

  • What are you sitting around wishing and waiting for?
  • What potential do you KNOW deep inside you have but keep holding back for that ONE DAY?
  • What do you need to let go of so that you can truly, freely move forward into the work you are meant to do?

This is the work we do at the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea.

It is one of those experiences where you’ll come to play with the Big Girls. Other women who are up to big things in their businesses and their lives.

Are you ready? Want to come play big?

Check out the details and then let’s talk about the Creative Business Retreat and discover just how ready you are! We can schedule a time to talk in more depth about your business – where you are and where you want to go.

AND, let’s do it now before September 1st and you can get in on the early bird pricing. Play Big for Less! (Best of both worlds.)

I’m ready to meet you in person! Let’s go!
