Do You Need A Business Partner?

"Would you rather feel overwhelmed or peaceful?
Of course you'd rather feel peaceful.

Would you rather like to feel energetic, and adventurous and excited about something? Or bored?

You must move toward what you you've become... or you become complacent and dissatisfied.

To take action from a place of split energy is always unpleasant.

So let's say you're focused on something that's not working. To dig in and try to offer more effort and to think harder about how your going to get it done, just causes you to pile more engines on in opposition

So the rule of thumb that we would apply, if we were in your position, is that we would follow the good feeling thoughts."

- Abraham Hicks

This past weekend I watched a video of myself from 2014. Talk about having a pile of opposition showing up all over my face.

I looked terribledepressed, like I wasn't even there... straight up dead behind the eyesSeriously, look at the screenshots from my videos!

I was 3 years into my business and I had what everyone on the outside saw as major success. On the inside I was falling apart. In those 3 years I had crashed my first fashion truck (my business), developed crippling reactive arthritis for 3 months where I could barely walk or move, was chained to my desk all day, everyday and felt like my business was at a total stand still. 

On top of it, I was SO worried ALL.THE.TIME. about everything- money, customers, social media, buying, money, family, my relationship, what the hell I was doing with my life. Seriously, to have spent three years riding the highs and lows of my business had made me a complete wreck. Can't you see it in my face?

I spent much of 2014 depressed and overwhelmed. I didn't know how I had gotten to that place, but it sucked.

I felt alone in my business and wanted to take a vacation from my life and run away.

I wish in that time, I had someone to help me.

My family, my boyfriend with a business degree, my friends... they're all amazing listeners but the real deal is that they aren't business consultants, they're not life coaches... and they just didn't understand what being a boutique owner felt like.

In that time, I needed someone to simultaneously lift my spirit up, tell me how to adjust my business to keep hitting my numbers and be my ally to pull me out of the lonely, overwhelmed situation I was in.

In 2015 I ended up on a woman's email list who sent emails that resonated with me. I loved her message, I listened to her audios and felt in my heart that she was the one who could help me figure out what I was doing with my life. 

I signed up with her as my coach and wow, how quickly my life changed. Changed in the best ways... I got happier, I felt lighter and a year and a half later I'm the happiest and most creative I've ever been in my life.

By saying yes, admitting that I needed help, I got exactly the help I needed! Help from an expert to get me from where I was to where I am now. Her 1:1 support was like the business partner I never had and so desperately needed. She knew about things like manifesting, journaling, online marketing, Facebook Ads... all these things I never had the energy or awareness to deal with before.

I now live a lifestyle that I LOVE and have a business that LIGHTS me UP! Every three months I travel to a new spot that I've co-created with my boyfriend, I have the most delightful clients who get massive results, the relationship with my family is only about being family, and new opportunities flow to me with ease (very exciting things coming soon!)My business is easy, makes perfect sense and I am more centered and focused than I ever believed I could be.

You don't have to keep filling your head with doubts, questions and struggles. You don't have to be alone in your business. You can have clarity, alignment, and forward momentum, right now. It is possible for you! 

When you work with me in my 1:1 Boutique Consulting Program, I am your best business partner ever.

I help my 1:1 clients make these shifts so they can take winters off, they can spend more time with their kids, buy the car they most desire, have freedom to take vacations and love their business... with ease.

Who are the types women who work with me in my 12 Week 1:1 Boutique Consulting Program? 

They are:

  • Ambitious & Creative
  • Have had their retail business for 2-4+ years (although I have helped many of total newbies!)
  • Ready to do the work to have the life they desire
  • Happy & Positive
  • Not scared to invest in themselves and their business
  • Know that where they are now isn't working and something has to change

Maybe that list sounds just like you? And perhaps you can relate to how I felt in my third year in business, lonely and ready to ask for help? 

Right now I have 4 spots open for my 1:1 Consulting Program. I'd love to invite you to schedule an appointment to connect with me if you feel like what I've said speaks to and you're really ready to create change in your life and business. I know these spots will fill up by the end of the month so if you're reading this and feeling excited, click that button below and let's talk!

Here's to making lots of friends and making lots of money!

What it Takes to Take Off

Last Wednesday, we took off for 3 months in Antigua, Guatemala. It had been about 6 weeks since I had flown (after logging a flight every 2 weeks during the fall!) so taking off somehow felt like a new experience.

Or maybe I was just seeing it through new 2017 eyes?

When we took off from Boston Airport… and made it above the clouds to the bright blue sky and blinding sun, I realized that taking off on a flight is so similar to taking off in business.

Starting and growing a business is truly like flying, defying gravity. Defying what you’ve been taught, told to do… and not staying stuck on the ground with everyone else.

It all starts with boarding the plane. It’s exciting and you are committed to taking that trip now, walking down the aisle to find your seat. 

Just like writing a business plan, you’re settling into your seat, buckling up for the ride to come.

The runway leading to take off is easy, smooth and your stomach has butterflies. Kind of like when you start telling people what you’re plans are… maybe you start a Facebook page or begin to buy products.

Then you take off, and the view is great! You’re seeing things you’ve never seen from that angle and height before. Your perspective of the world shifts, you start to step into your role as a business owner.

But just as you are feeling comfortable there, you hit the clouds. This is the bumpy part, your vision is blurred, you can’t see the ground anymore and it can be a little scary. There are some clear spots, but mostly thick, cloudy areas. Maybe you have to hold on or ask for help during this stage of your business. You need an experienced pilot to keep you on the upward trajectory.

Until that moment finally comes, you’ve climbed above the clouds… you can see the sun, the skyline horizon. It’s light and bright. 

Looking down you see those clouds from before are now puffy, like cotton balls, and actually, so beautiful. The sun is so bright, it blinds your eyes, but it feels amazing on your face. You feel the lightness, weightlessness, the incredible pure bliss of being so high in the sky, somewhere where— for all intensive purposes— humans shouldn’t be.

We’ve been told for so long that humans shouldn’t start businesses. It’s hard. It’s a lot of work. You’ll never make it. Most businesses fail after 2, 3, 5 years.

Maybe you are in that cloudy stage of your business? It doesn’t feel consistent, smooth and with a clear path? That’s ok and that’s where I get excited to help.

My private consulting is meant exactly for that cloudy stage. You’ve got a business up and running, but gosh, it seems like it’s going to be hard to rise above the clouds and feel the sun on your face.

You have new ideas every week. The technical part of growing seems daunting, where should you start? And maybe you feel like sales have been good, but the money in your bank account doesn’t reflect the work you’ve been putting in.

Maybe you're ready to hire a consultant who teaches and guides you on how to not only get through the clouds, but basking in the sun on the other side? A coach who knows how to help you with all the technical stuff, but can give you all the mindset support when shit really gets real in your business.

SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE MY 1:1 CONSULTING PROGRAM!

I’ve re-opened only 4 SPOTS FOR 12 WEEK 1:1 CONSULTING. Yes, the 1:1 Consulting program that literally TRANSFORMED women’s lives in 2016. 

Last year, I helped women go from $6k months to $16k months, buy new cars, start from scratch to a $10k 1st month in biz, have fully booked out schedules (with down time!), move to their dream locations… and honestly, be happier, feel more calm and run their business with ease.

If you're feeling like you’re ready to take 2017 by storm, but all your BIG plans feel a bit too overwhelming already…

STOP RIGHT THERE.

I want to help you get a FIRM GRASP on 2017 and really make shit happen this year.

You can choose to give yourself a chance, rather than saying: "oh well my dreams are probably too big...", you could buckle down for 12 weeks with me and REALLY make yourself proud.

Prove it to yourself that you can defy gravity and make it through the scary cloudy part in your business.

🌟 You'll hardly recognize yourself by the end of these 12 weeks! 🌟

This is a super high-level customized 12 weeks. You'll get training videos, book lists, workbooks, everything you need to succeed.

You want a business partner? Great- that's me for twelve weeks. You'll have weekly 1:1 calls with just me and full email access to me for the entire length of us working together. We’ll talk through any blocks that come up and I’ll give you all of the woo-woo stuff I do to keep my vibe high and hit my goals.

You + Me... we're going to deep dive into your business to figure out what is going right to push it, what's going wrong, and stop it. No more wondering why you have too much inventory or why there's not as much money in the bank as you thought there should be. 

Picture this: In just 12 weeks, you've got your business running like a super profitable machine, you have a plan set up and in place, and you KNOW it's all working exactly the way you imagined in the dreams you had about your retail business. 

WHY ME?

I know finding good teachers is the hardest part. 

If you want to do what I've done... be featured in magazines, win awards, have six-figure years, know the latest in internet marketing and social media, develop a strong money mindset and go out and kick butt in business... I'm probably your teacher.

Ready to discuss your 2017 goals and how we can work together to achieve them?

Book a FREE call with me to see if my Private Consulting Program is for you- the woman who won't settle for staying on the ground.

The 4 spots I have open will fill up quickly so please get on my calendar if working with me is something you are thinking about!

Start working SMARTER, not HARDER.

You might call me a creep, but I don't care. Part of being a incredible business owner is watching the trends and seeing where to make effective change.

And one trend I see is a heck of alot of wasted time.

Having traveled extensively, I honestly think it's an American "thing". We like to appear busy so people think we are 'working hard' and we are applauded for that over and over. We say we are "great at multi-tasking and time management," but core pieces of our business aren't up-to-date or even under construction.

How long can you go on telling yourself that you are so busy, have great time management and are able to grow your business? 

Remember the other day when I talked about the difference between an entrepreneur and a business owner (via email and on a Facebook Live video)? 

Let me break it down even more so you can further identify where you stand in your business:

Entrepreneurs:

  • Stay busy with the busy work
  • Look only at this week's sales
  • Focus on doing "the best I can with what I have"
  • Don't have vision past this month
  • Never take vacation or have time off
  • Worried about money
  • Just figuring it out as you go
  • Decision making triggers fear


Small business owners:

  • Focus on strategy
  • Look where to cut costs
  • Plan vacations and time off often
  • Delegate work to assistants
  • Analyze budgets
  • Understand revenue streams and how to activate them
  • Plan out seasons
  • Make decisions based on data
  • Have a grasp on cash flow and P&L statements


My goal as a consultant is to teach you how to transition from entrepreneur to small business.

I believe you should be able to have a growth plan and make it happen- whatever that looks like for you and your product based business.

Imagine starting 2017 with a clear plan, not feeling "too busy" with your business completely under control. That is possible for you!



If you're feeling like this year is slipping through your fingers, and your big hopes for a thriving business are going have to wait til next year...

STOP RIGHT THERE.

I want to help you get a FIRM GRASP on 2016 and really turn things around in these last 8 weeks.

It doesn't have to be over yet!!

You can choose to give yourself a chance, rather than saying: "oh well maybe next year...", you could buckle down for these 8 weeks and REALLY make yourself proud.

Prove it to yourself, once and for all, that you are capable and worthy of success, doing what you love.

🌟 I've put together a super special package for just 5 women who are going to rapidly shift their reality with me in an intensive 8-week transformation. (starting THIS WEEK!)

And -- it's half the price of my regular package! 🌟

You'll hardly recognize yourself by the end of the year!!

You can expect to: 
  •  analyze your sales & margin data to maximize profits
  •  get you feeling great about your biz (mindset!)
  •  find your ideal client and speak to her loudly!
  •  dig deep into your inventory management and make it flow properly
  •  develop a buying and markdown strategy
  •  create and schedule content for all your social media channels
  •  launch your e-commerce or social selling site
  •  and whatever else you need…

This is a super high-level customized 8 weeks. You'll get the same access that my longer term 1:1 clients get. Training videos, book lists, workbooks-- you'll get what you need to succeed.

You want a business partner? Great- that's me for eight weeks.  
 
You + Me... we're going to deep dive into your business to figure out what is going right to push it, what's going wrong, and stop it. No more wondering why you have too much inventory or why there's not as much money in the bank as you thought there should be. 
 
Picture this: In just 8 weeks, you've got your business running like a super profitable machine, you have an after-holiday plan set up and in place, and you KNOW it's all working exactly the way you imagined in the dreams you had about your retail business. We're going to bring this to life.

Imagine clinking glasses of bubbly on New Year's Eve, celebrating your upleveled brand, newfound confident mindset, unshakeable business roadmap!!

Let's do this NOW!
Wouldn't it be SO AMAZING to look back on this day, as the day that EVERYTHING SHIFTED? The day you jumped in and staked your claim as the CEO of your business? Finally locked into place and success felt REAL?

Can't wait to connect with you!

To making lots of friends and making lots of money,

Emily

60 days left...

Maybe you’ve been thinking, “Wow, I’m so busy. Overwhelmed. My business is doing really well, but I think I should have more time, more money in the bank, know what to focus on… My family is sick of my talking about my business 24//7. I know I want to grow this business more, but I feel too all over the place to make solid decisions to expand and grow.”


Sound familiar? Feel familiar?

I know what it's like. I understand how it feels to be 'just keeping up' and like every day means so much. If your life has become about 'just getting through the day' and 'when can I have a glass of wine'... I need you to know that it doesn't have to be like that anymore.
 

** I fully believe that you have the right to the opportunity to grow and develop your skills in your business.
 

** I believe that having frequent feedback from an industry professional will help you be comfortable taking risks in your business.
 

** I believe that support from someone who has been where you are will give you the comfort and security to be vulnerable.
 

These core beliefs are why I became a coach/consultant.

Why do I say coach/consultant?

My coaching is based on a holistic look at your life and business and how they affect each other:

> Deep diving into time management & match to your core desired feelings
> Kickass Mindset for optimum success and money growth
> Energy practices- how to manage your energy to grow business without being stressed/overwhelmed/tired
> Accountability, encouragement, the push needed to go outside your comfort zone

My consulting is focused on systems and structures to help stabilize, maintain and grow your business:
> Manage Open to Buy and become financially efficient utilizing Stock to Sales logics
> Analyze Sales History Data
> Develop Monthly Buying Plan
> Create a Markdown & Sales Plan
> Develop Marketing Plan via Social Media Presence & Email Marketing
> Manage Website/ SEO/ Create e-commerce or social selling income streams
> Plan out growth strategy
> Create monthly, quarterly and yearly goals

Having read the above list of what I do... are you doing most of that at this point in your business? Does some of that sound fun/relieving/exciting? Let me ask you:

  • Are you where you want to be in your business?
  • What’s stopping you from getting to your goals in your life and business?
  • How are those obstacles taking you out of the game and crushing your dreams?
  • Is it time for you to end your every day suffering? 
  • Why do you feel like you have to endure this pain alone in your business?
  • Is it time for you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and ask for the help that you need to get yourself to the next level?


INTRODUCING MY
NEW & EXCLUSIVE 1:1
PROGRAM 

If you’ve been thinking about working with me 1:1 at a higher level, here’s your chance. 

I’ve created a new 8-week intimate experience, only available for five (5) women.

This is about getting you to your ultimate business goals FAST. 
 
Some examples of things we can do in eight weeks:

  •  analyze your sales & margin data to maximize profits
  •  get you feeling great about your biz (mindset!)
  •  find your ideal client and speak to her loudly!
  •  dig deep into your inventory management and make it flow properly
  •  develop a buying and markdown strategy
  •  create and schedule content for all your social media channels
  •  launch your e-commerce or social selling site
  •  and whatever else you need…

Clearly we're not going to be able to get that entire list done in eight weeks, so pick your top 3-4 and we'll push to make them happen FAST.

This is a super high-level customized 8 weeks. You'll get the same access that my longer term 1:1 clients get. Training videos, book lists, workbooks-- you'll get what you need to succeed.

You want a business partner? Great- that's me for eight weeks. You'll have weekly 1:1 calls with just me and full email access to me for the entire length of us working together. 
 
You + Me... we're going to deep dive into your business to figure out what is going right to push it, what's going wrong, and stop it. No more wondering why you have too much inventory or why there's not as much money in the bank as you thought there should be. 
 
Picture this: In just 8 weeks, you've got your business running like a super profitable machine, you have an after-holiday plan set up and in place, and you KNOW it's all working exactly the way you imagined in the dreams you had about your retail business. We're going to bring this to life.

IMPORTANT: This is limited to 5 incredible women, so if it is speaking to you then talk to me about how we can make it happen. 

Hit reply to this email or schedule a time to speak to me this week. These spots will be gone by November 1st.

I Heart Mondays! {FOR REAL}

This morning I woke up early to check out a Spin studio in the town we are staying in (we've started our traveling adventures!!). The place had great reviews and I have my spin shoes with me so I thought I'd try!

As I was setting up the bike, I was having trouble clipping my shoes into the pedals (it was the right size clip- I double checked!). So I asked the instructor if she could just guide my feet into the right place.

I said: "I just haven't been to a Spin class in awhile. And I think these bikes are different than the ones I've been on before."

She said: "It's Monday. Everything is harder on a Monday."

I thought: "WHAT? Well that's a crap story that you probably should let go of!"

emily benson mondays

It set this weird tone up for me and during the class, she kept referring to the idea that "Monday is hard" "Let's get Monday going!"

All I could think was STOP BLAMING MONDAY. Poor freaking Monday has nothing to do with how I'm going to perform in this class. And honestly, you making it the enemy is NOT INSPIRING at all.

It doesn't matter what day of the week it is- I FLOW EVERYDAY. PERIOD.

When you're a small business owner, everyday is important. And frankly, everyday is equal.

When you choose to flow, choose to make everyday really great for you and your life, IT IS!

The freedom, living life on your own terms, showing up for the amazing business you've created--- this is what I do, and what I teach my clients to do.

Yes, resistance can come up. People wanting things from you, get in your way. The urge to help everyone in your path is a real life issue you need to deal with.

But at the end of the day:

  • YOU CHOOSE HOW YOU FEEL.
  • YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR EMOTIONS.
  • YOU DECIDE WHAT FLOW IS TO YOU.
  • YOU GET TO CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY.


So let's all stop blaming days of the week for how we feel. Because we can absolutely create the flow we desire no matter what day or time it is!

Here's to living your life in FUN!

Emily

Are you Blocking Success from coming into your life?

"We're not here to celebrate perfectionism. We're here to celebrate how quickly we return our thoughts to love."
- Gabby Bernstein

 

I spent the a transformational weekend with New York Times Bestseller Gabby Bernstein at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. She speaks and publishes with Hay House (yeah Louise Hay's company), writes books and does workshops all over the world.

And guess what? She's not perfect. She's human. She cries. She has bad days. She told us that she hadn't slept through the night in days.

And she's INSPIRING. She knows what she wants and she goes for it. She manifested an Oprah interview AND a New York Times feature. Now that is some powerful stuff!

Me & Gabby Bernstein! She signed my Kindle and I was officially a #SpiritJunkie!

Me & Gabby Bernstein! She signed my Kindle and I was officially a #SpiritJunkie!

If you've been following me for awhile, you might look at me and think,"She's so lucky" or "She's doing some cool things."

I'm going to let you in on a secret: It's NOT LUCK! I asked for all of it. I demanded all of it. I have made a very strong and clear choice to go after everything I decide I want for myself in my life.

In the winter, it was spending it in sunny Antigua. In April, it was having my dream photoshoot in Paris. May brought meeting powerhouse business women Kimra Luna and Selena Soo. This past weekend I spent with a powerful room of women and Gabby B. And in 2 weeks we will be completed selling all of our things and starting to travel around the world.

I want to be very clear... these are all the product of my manifested reality. I have felt drawn to these experiences, visualized, journaled and tapped on my fears or blocks around them. I trust in myself and the Universe that these wonderful things are available to me. 

And the cool part is that I can teach you to do this too if you are open and ready for it. 

My client Megan was a fast learner and on nearly every other call would have new opportunities pop up for her.

Whether it was a licensing deal for her artwork, a new commission, a blog interview, while working together she realized how powerful her thoughts and mindset were to the success of her business.

She even won a "Best of Boston" award during our time together! 

Are you ready to have someone in your corner who shows you the exact steps to having the life and business you desire? Everything you want IS possible for you- even if you can't quite see it yet.

I'm still offering clarity calls to those who are ready to stop playing small. Spots are open this week, but they are going to go fast so book as soon as you see this! Here's the link. I have 4 spots open for 1:1 consulting until October. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE. You are reading this for a reason and I invite you to explore the reason and see what happens...

Here's to living your life in FUN!

Why MASSIVE ACTION is the only COURSE OF ACTION

When you're a creative entrepreneur, you get caught in this limiting belief cycle of:

- "I need my big break."
- "I have to do it exactly like that successful person did."
- "I'll always be struggling with money and success.
- "Working hard is part of the journey."
- "If I work more, I'll make more money."

You know what? It doesn't have to be that way. 

Those are just old lines a society of humans based in fear have been caught up in. It hasn't been like that for me this past year. I've learned to get where I am with ease, clarity and incredible support. And within 1 year of deciding to completely overhaul my life and business- another BIG shift is happening:

In the next 3 weeks, we are selling nearly everything we own to travel freely around the world.

Seriously. 

That saying "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you" is DEAD ON. The idea of moving is challenging me... it's also changing every fiber of my being.

At 33 years old, I'm once again, choosing to LIVE BIG and go for EXACTLY what I wantDesigning my life around SUNSHINE, FREEDOM and EXPLORATION has been something I've wanted to do for many years. And in small steps, I had been getting bits and pieces.

Starting as a winter away in Florida, Greg and I slowly have been traveling more, and for longer time periods. We've downsized our "things" every month. We've simplified our lives with things like housekeepers and food delivery service to uplevel and create ease.

Last night, my body's natural reaction to fear kicked in and I had a little meltdown. I cried and tapped and hugged Greg. I told him I was scared and nervous about moving away. We talked feelings and plans and within minutes I felt SO.MUCH.BETTER.

I don't know if I've shared this with you yet, but I process every itty bitty feeling that comes up in my brain-- doing mindset work like journaling, tapping and meditating 2-3 hours a day. Excitement, terror, sadness, confusion, clarity. ALL OF THE FEELINGS have come up in this most recent upleveling cycle.

You see... INTENSE FREAKING EMOTIONS ARE BEHIND EVERY OUNCE OF MASSIVE ACTION.

I realized that ALL of this work to move my business online is workingexactly the way I've planned. The MASSIVE ACTION in my business I've taken over the past year is creating more MASSIVE ACTION in my life. 

AND IT'S AWESOME.

Maybe you're a creative entrepreneur who wants to run their business from anywhere (even from the couch!). Perhaps you have a business up and running and it's not profitable, or at all where you want it to be financially? 

I want to help you. I've been running businesses for 12+ years in product and service based spaces. Turning a PROFIT in every single one. And when I say profit, I don't mean a little fun money-- I mean PAY FOR MY LIFE money.

That PAY FOR MY LIFE money has been my HAVE A FUN LIFEmoney.

I want you to have a fun life which is fully funded by your business. So are you ready to give up the story of struggle around money? Ditch the self doubt and start taking MASSIVE ACTION? Invest in a MAJOR way for MAJOR RESULTS? Oh, and trust that you are AVAILABLE to having an amazing business?

That's the woman I'm looking for.

I have 5 spots open in my 1:1 Consulting Program. It's customized to your goals of living a fun, fab life running your biz and having a blast. These are my last spots open until October when I will once again raise my prices.

Here's to living your life in FUN!

Are You Obsessed with Perfection?

Is it serving you?

I've been teaching this week- at Fashion Summer Camp!! 

And my mantra with the girls is "As long as you create it from your heart, it's perfect."

At camp, it's a "prepare for a mess" kind of place. The kids are out of school and I get excited to let them go where their inspiration takes them- no matter what that looks like to me or anyone else. 

I'll admit, I have a mega-perfectionist streak. And for a long time I thought it was necessary to be successful. But, it doesn't serve me to lead with perfection.

What's important to me, what I desire for my life to look like, is just plain FUN (being perfect doesn't feel fun to me!). I want to explore, learn, grow, be challenged and teach. 

So I proclaim...

- If driving your beat up old car feels fun to you- do it!
- If eating out at restaurants on weekends feels fun to you- do it!
- If wearing your old comfiest shoes feels fun to you- do it!
- If traveling around the world feels fun to you- do it!
- If taking a walk twice a day feels fun to you- do it!

Everyone's desires are completely different. I want to encourage you to do whatever is FUN for YOU!

I'm gathering an amazing group of business women who want to live life in a way that feels more FUN to them. I'm giving them support, high level trainings, accountability, a community and (when it's needed) a big push in the direction of their BIG goals for 2016. 

If you aren't on track to reach your 2016 business (and life!) goals, I'd love to have you in my Signature Mastermind program. 

I want to be clear that it's not a formal course with modules-- it's more than that. A CUSTOMIZED 5-month program for you and a community of game changing women. 

Learn more about the Signature Mastermind.

What do you need help with? Marketing, FB Ads, selling more product or service, establishing a mindset for success, website design/structure, scheduling your days and weeks for efficiency, sales conversations, sell through rates, GROWING your BUSINESS to the income goals you are so desiring and living the life that feels joyous to you. I have studied it ALL with the BEST (seriously, I know too much about too much!) and I'm jazzed to help a special group of women for the remainder of 2016. 

The Mastermind and my 1:1 Consulting are the only 2 ways I'll be offering for you to work with me for the remainder of 2016. So if you've been thinking about me for awhile now, I highly suggest you check out this incredibly priced program ASAP.

Learn more about the Signature Mastermind.

Apply for the Signature Mastermind.

Here's to living your life in FUN!

Last July, I was sitting on this bed, staring at my computer and crying my eyes out.

It was supposed to be a fun holiday vacation, but I all I could think about was how I had no money. How I had no hope and how the hell I got myself into this situation.

My brick and mortar business was struggling, I had panic attacks every time I was in my mobile business... and as for the 3 other businesses I had running--- well, they were the ones paying the bills. I was tired, sad and in hindsight, I'd say I was depressed.

I knew I had to make a change-- and the change was certainly not to go back to a typical 9-5 job.

A month before this, I had started listening to an audio training series from a woman, also named Emily.

She had this incredible outlook on life and business... there were quotables inside the trainings, and I had taken notes on notes trying to figure out what her secret sauce was.

See, I was the type of person who always said, "I can figure this out, I don't need help."

But at this point, I was so deep into my entrepreneurial life, I wasn't quite sure how to figure this out myself. And sure, these audio trainings we amazing-- inspiring and with instruction-- but I realized that I couldn't replace a freebie training series with a true course with a real person to help me.

And that's when I gave in. Well, with a little help.

Emily was selling a 3 month course at the end of the audio training. I looked at the sign up page for the course probably a thousand times, continuously telling myself I couldn't afford it. But deep down, I knew I needed to sign up soooo badly. Like THIS was THE thing that would change my life. If I didn't take this risk, I'd continue along my path of depression.

I tried to sell some things, ask my sister to use her credit card, and moved some bits of money around. But it still wasn't enough for the first payment.

My boyfriend Greg had seen how much I would light up listening to the trainings, and that I had this glimmer of hope when I spoke about signing up for the course.

The day I was sitting on the bed crying, he came in and asked what was wrong. It was the last day to sign up, and I couldn't because I didn't have the money.

He left... and in less than 2 minutes, he came back with his credit card. Passing it to me, he said "Use this to sign up and you can pay me back when you can."

I almost didn't take it... Who was I to be using his money? This was admitting defeat in the biggest sense possible. I would never ask a man to pay for something like this. I was taught that a woman should take care of herself.

I shut down the voices running through my head and took the card. As soon as I got the confirmation for the course sign up, I felt a rush of relief come over my body. I knew that I was a good worker, I could get things done. And now I had an expert telling me exactly what to do to change my life for the better.

I was saved.

That was one year ago.

Since then it's been a whirlwind:
- I closed my brick and mortar store.
- I sold my mobile business!
- I started a business consulting business!
- I've been completely booked since I started consulting. And my clients are getting insanely positive results in their lives and businesses!
- I launched 2 new programs, a mastermind and intensives.
- I spent the winter in Antigua, a week in Paris (where I had my dream photoshoot!) and am about to travel around the world for the next couple of years.
- I've worked (and continue to work) with the top coaches in the world in business, mindset, public speaking, personal development and internet marketing.

And personally:
- My relationship with Greg gets deeper everyday.
- My mom and I are closer than ever before.
- My dad has a new level of respect for me as a business woman.
- I have ah-mazing new business besties all over the world. (And my super sweetie long time besties are reaping the benefits of my enhanced personal development, making continual improvements in their lives!)
- I feel happy, safe, inspired and vibrationally aligned every single day.
- I live with a greater sense of purpose and clarity than I ever have before. 

I live with a passion for not only MY dreams, but I'm obsessed with my CLIENT'S goals and dreams. I have seen so much transformation in my own life, I can't help but be addicted to seeing them transform as well.

Being successful in life and business REQUIRES being vulnerable. 

If I hadn't gotten over myself and what my mind was telling me to keep me safe, I absolutely wouldn't be where I am today.

I had to take the risk, I had to ask for help, and I had to be willing to put myself into situations that were uncomfortable (trust me, there were more than just in this letter!).

There are 174 days left in 2016.

How are you going to choose to be vulnerable? 

Are you willing to get uncomfortable for the sake of success, the chance to live a fantastic life full of every desire your business can afford you?

I believe in you and I'm obsessed with you achieving your dreams and goals!

Here's to living your life full of everything you desire!

My $35,000 Plan

My $35,000 Plan

I only watch very specific television shows, and one of my favorites lately is ‘The Grinder’ on Fox. Rob Lowe (total hottie!) plays an actor who for many years was a famous TV lawyer, and now he’s returned home and works at his family’s real life law firm in Idaho. He never passed the bar, but his TV show antics seem to always work in real life.

Anyhow, the episode I watched last week was all about how he decided that to be able to solve the BIG case, he needed to get wrapped up in a side story. That the ‘side story’ would be able to distract him enough so he could connect the dots and figure out how to work the angles on the BIG case.

Of course this got me thinking about how my mindset practice is my FOREVER side story, helping me solve the issues that come up while running my coaching business. I spend between 1-4 hours A DAY on journaling, tapping, drowning myself in audios and reading. I’ve unlocked blocks I didn’t know I had, solved problems in my relationships with others, and gotten the clues to what’s holding me back from the next HUGE levels in my business (I hit $35k this month already. $40k is July’s goal!!)…

And now I’m helping others do the same. Last week on a call with a client, she said “I spoke to a total ideal client, but she probably can’t afford my $4,000 rates.” I immediately stopped her… 1. Because her rate is $5,000… and 2. Because she was putting her own limiting beliefs about money onto this woman she had talked to for 30 minutes.

I gave her the assignment to write down all the reasons she is capable of charging $5,000 and why someone would pay her $5,000. Guess what? Two days later she signed a $5,000 client!

In business, a person’s side story should ALWAYS be mindset work. Lots to do, do the mindset work first. Got nothing to do, do some mindset work.

So many coaches are throwing around the term "mindset work" but not telling you WHAT that MEANS or LOOKS LIKE! Let me be specific about what mine looks like so you get an idea of what it looks like for a $35k month:

I focus on ONE GOAL and became laser focused on that one goal.

I wrote the goal down every day— and the goal has a deadline.

>> My morning routine:
1. Wake up, be aware of how I feel.
Listen to Abraham Hicks good morning rampage.
Write down how I want to feel today.
2. Then move on to journaling around my goal. What it would feel like to have achieved the goal, what I would do when it happened, how I would act, and then I close my eyes and visualize myself with the results.
3. Then I listen to Steve Seibold’s positive self talk on self esteem and personal development. I kept myself around high vibe people and things.

>> During the day:
I’m aware of my thoughts and feelings. If something negative comes up, I stop, write it down and journal and tap about it. I also listen to more Abraham Hicks and subliminal messaging music.

>> Before Bed:
I go back to my ‘how I want to feel today’ notes and once again, focus on my goal and the feeling that the result of that goal is going to bring. I journal more, tap if I need to, and end the night in meditation. As I lay down in bed, I start to think about how much I appreciate everything around me: the bed, the air conditioning, the pillows… all of it. And I drift off to sleep with some gentle music.

Hope this helps YOU have a $35k month!!
xo, Emily
