Learn How the Company You Keep is Impacting Your Success

by Chris Atley

Who you surround yourself with is everything. The Ferrari racing was part of the mastermind group I belong to – a group where I work on my business and myself.

I say working on myself because even though I initially thought I joined just to work on the strategy piece, I realized that what I get out of it is much more about mindset.

Being around people who are constantly striving to be better, do better and help more people inevitably rubs off in positive way. “They” say you are the average of the 5 people you hang around, and I believe this to be true. Who is that for you? Who are you hanging around?

What amazes me is just when you think you have things under control, you put yourself around someone who is miles ahead of you, and suddenly your mind is stretched and you realize there is a whole new level that you weren’t even dreaming of before. Because it wasn’t in your current awareness. You realize you’ve been playing way too small, and there is an even bigger world out there to play in and be a part of.

When you surround yourself in this energy you can’t help but grow and expand your awareness. You can’t help but want to strive to expand your reach, help even more people and enjoy your life in a beautiful way with friends and family. Your energy rises, your results increase and you step into an even better version of yourself! What could be better?

Take a look at your life right now and look at where you are playing small. What needs to shift? Who do you need to surround yourself in order to step into the best version of yourself? And yes, this may take an investment ;)

3 Things to Do When You're Totally Tired of Dealing with Newsletters

by Deborah A. Bailey

I'm going to pull the entrepreneurs aside for a moment. Not in a business yet? Maybe you'd like to hear this too. But don't let it discourage you from starting something up.

I'm just having a moment, so please bear with me.

Is your inbox filled with offers and sales pitches? Are you sick and tired of it?

As an entrepreneur, on one hand I totally get it. You've got to ask for the sale. It's not going to magically appear.

But on the other, I'm getting really tired of the constant entreaties to buy, buy, buy. Get it now. You must have it. It will change your life. Whatever!

Maybe I'm wrong to be saying this, but I'm tired of it. I don't know how many newsletters I've signed up for, really interested in what the person had to say, only to have pitch after pitch in every email. Get it now. Buy it now. Sign up now. Whatever happened to the "know, like, trust factor?"

Can we at least get acquainted first?

So, here are 3 things to do when you're totally done with it and are ready to run away screaming.


1. Unsubscribe. Yeah, I said it. Even if you're subscribed to my newsletter, just hit the "unsub" button if it's getting on your nerves. Step back from it all and take a breath. It doesn't mean you don't like the person. It just means you need a break--or maybe the information isn't what you're interested in right now. No problem. It's not personal. There's so much information coming at us these days, info overload is to be expected. Pick what appeals to you and leave the rest. You can always pick it up again later if you want.


2. Don't be afraid to go your own way. Even if conventional wisdom says you must have an email list, if it doesn't work for you, don't do it. Over the years I've had a few different lists, and based on my own experience, there were times when it was valuable, and times when it was not.

There is no one size fits all solution. Every business owner will not benefit from following the same rules that have been in place since long before the internet age.

According to the stats I get on Mailchimp, the open rates for professional services are around 17%. When I started out several years ago, I was getting around 50% opens regularly. Readers are overwhelmed and tuning out. Even if they really want to hear what you have to say, everyone's suffering from fatigue.

If you aren't reaching your people via email, don't worry about it. Do what works for you. Forcing something to fit that doesn't fit, will just end up pissing you off and alienating your people. Like trying to cram your size 10 feet into a size 9, it won't work, and your feet will hurt like hell (which sucks).


3. Test things out and pay attention to the results.  Six years ago I started Women Entrepreneurs Radio. Through it, I've networked with hundreds of people and increased my discoverability (check out "Discoverability: A WMG Writers Guide" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch for more details on what that is and how to get it if you're a writer or any kind of entrepreneur).

Having my show has connected me to more people than a mailing list ever has, and continues to market for me long after the show has been recorded. It works for me, so I keep doing it.


What works for you and your business?

Test, try things out, and keep an open mind. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it. If you feel like a fake, or the marketing method isn't a good fit, don't do it. If your ideal client is turned off by whatever it is you're doing, stop doing it. It's that simple.

Don't keep hammering away because someone else told you must get that square peg into the round hole. Trust yourself. If it's not working, try another approach.

Marketing is constant tweaking and experimenting. There is no sure thing, it there were, we'd all be doing it. Don't be afraid to step out of the crowd and follow what works for you. Your people will line up with that, and they'll be glad to find you--but they won't find you if you're following a crowd that's leading you in the wrong direction.

How She Does It: Shalakemia Moffitt CEO of IAMSHALAKEMIA

Shalakemia Moffitt is a visionary who is passionate about the success of others and is a high spirited professional business woman. 

In 2011 she launched her organization, Queen of the Curves, as well as her powerful brand, IAMSHALAKEMIA, and later down the road Princess of the Curves was created.

Shalakemia is not only the CEO of her own business, but she is also an advocate, a mentor and a motivational speaker. Each of her businesses were launched with a vision of positivity, motivation, and empowerment.

Shalakemia serves her community in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas.


Deborah: Happy you could stop by the Secrets of Success blog. Please share some of your journey with us.

Shalakemia: Happy to be here, Deborah. I am a woman that has been through a lot of experiences that have changed me for the better. I am a woman that has survived some of the scariest test and trial seasons life could throw. I became a mother at 15, survived teenage domestic violence, overcame thoughts of suicide, battled with depression, was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor and struggled as a single mom.

My past was a nightmare but I God opened my eyes to see how these misfortunes could be used for his good. I refuse to allow my future to be the same as my past. I set out to inspire millions I have accomplished what people said I would never would...All thanks to God!

Deborah: Since May is Brain Tumor Awareness month, do you have any "lessons learned" from your experience that you feel may help others?

Shalakemia: I've learned so many lessons, but the one lesson I learned through being diagnosed with my tumor is everything we may think is bad isn't.  My tumor changed my life for the better.

After being diagnosed my relationship with God increased and it continues to strengthen every day. My eyes opened up when I was diagnosed and the meaning of life was much more clear to me. I had to start believing that God would not just allow my diagnosis to be the end of me. I told myself I won't just exist, I will live my life to the fullest and accomplish every goal I have set for myself.

Deborah: What are some of your successes and challenges?

Shalakemia: I would have to say my biggest success in life is using my gift for inspiring others. I say this is my biggest success because it is the goal I made for myself when I was just a little girl. Being so open about my life has made people comfortable enough to speak about their experiences and begin healing and moving forward. I feel that you have to be an example to inspire others, show people what you have been through and how you got through it so they can be inspired to push forward. As far as challenges, I've had my fair share but I prayed straight through them.

One of my biggest challenges has been raising my two sons without their father. As a single parent of two boys you don't alway know how to take of their needs as young men, but I adapted and made sure to provide my kids with whatever they needed so that they could grow up as respectful young men.

Deborah: What's your vision for what you'd like to accomplish?

Shalakemia: My vision is to continue to create a positive foundation. A foundation that encourages, inspires and motivates people.

Deborah: Thanks so much for sharing your message with us! Please share website and social media URLs.

Is it Time to Walk Away from Your Business?

by Deborah A Bailey

Back when I was in corporate I would get what I called the "Sunday night blues." As the day would go on, I'd have more and more anxiety.

It didn't matter how much fun I'd had, or how relaxing the day had been, by 7:00 pm my stomach would be in knots. Just the thought of returning to a job I hated on Monday morning was enough to ruin half my weekend.

Unfortunately, as a business owners you might be going through similar things. But instead of getting the blues at the end of the weekend, you might get the dreaded 3:00 am blues.

It happens when you wake up in the middle of the night gripped by fear. All the emotions you've been keeping locked down during the day start flooding in.

When you're vulnerable and half-awake, suddenly all you can think about is what's not in your bank account. Or how your latest product launch fizzled. Or how exhausting it is to work night and day on a dream of business that's become a total nightmare.

The good thing is the 3:00 am blues usually passes. And when it's time to go out in the world you pull yourself together, smile and pretend nothing's wrong.

You keep hustling and hope that something breaks before you completely break down.

What happens if you can't make it work? What happens if you risk everything to pursue this dream and you end up losing it all?

Not sure if it's time to stay or go? Close your business, shut the doors and start looking for a JOB? Before you decide, here are three things to try:

Is it time to walk away from your business?



Stop Comparing Yourself to Other Business Owners

Give yourself a break. Even if everyone else seems to be happy and successful with no problems, that's far from the truth. There are no overnight successes. No matter what the PR says, everyone has had to go through rough places in their business. Sleepless nights, self-doubt and soul-numbing fear. If that's what you're going through, you're not alone.

Get Back to Basics

Why did you want to go into business in the first place? Have you forgotten your "why?" It's okay to change direction if you're not where you want to be.


What Action Can You Take Right Now?

 Instead of getting stuck in an endless loop of thinking without action, take a step right now. What is the best action you can take at this time?





Are you going through business burnout right now?

The Art of Giving

by Chris Atley

When we can truly step out of worrying (lack, fear-based thinking), and into our natural state of loving and giving, everything in our lives will change.

I’ve said multiple times before that “giving to get” is not the right way to go about giving. If you are doing it to better yourself in some way, you are not doing it for the right reasons. The other thing to realize is that you can tell when someone is doing this. They may be saying all of the right things, but you can feel their energy isn’t genuine. Something feels off. It’s because they are trying to get. We’re probably all guilty of this; so don’t worry if this is sounding like you. 

You can shift it anytime, and start operating from a genuine “how can I best help” mentality. In business this is essential when speaking to a prospect. When you are legitimately trying to help them this will come through. You may refer them to a great book, another person or to your product or service. The intention is that it is whatever will best help them move forward.

This doesn’t just apply to business though, and this is the missing link. God doesn’t care where you give. He/She just feels that you are in alignment with your truth and more will be given to you in return. Creating is your natural state and it’s why it’s important to follow your heart’s desires. When you’re in this state it doesn’t matter whether you are giving in your business or personal life. The point is that you are giving. You are trying to better someone else’s life. It might be volunteering for your kid’s baseball team, taking the time to call a relative to say hello or just spending time with a loved one. It might be just a smile or saying thank-you and showing gratitude. It’s all about helping and serving.

In the book, “Working with the Law”, by Raymond Holliwell, he states that what you give is proportionate to what you will receive. It makes total sense. If you are coming from a loving place with others, you will stay in a loving place with receiving from others too. It’s a natural state of giving and receiving. On the flip side, if you give only some of the time that means you are not in alignment with your natural source and in your ego for the rest. This therefore produces mixed results of love (abundance) and ego driven (lack) creations. This shows-up as getting some results but not consistently.

The great thing about this is when you truly give from this place (love, connection); you honestly do not care about getting. It just feels so good to give that you are focused on that alone. The receiving is just a nice bonus later. It really does come in spades too – it’s pretty unbelievable actually. This goes back to being legitimate in your giving. Only give to people, causes, etc. that you feel drawn and connected to.

Something else Holliwell states in his book, is that you should only give to people in a way that will better their lives. For example, funding an alcoholic’s bad habits is enabling not giving, and is not in their best interests. That’s an extreme example, and you can probably see how it sometimes doesn’t feel good to give to someone who is coming from a needy or dysfunctional place. It will feel off for you too.

Think about how you can start giving today. What can you do to make a difference in the lives of the people in your life? When you’re not worrying about how you are going to “get”, you can relax, trust you’re taken care of and focus on serving others.

3 Steps to Your Next Profitable Offer

by Alicia Forest, MBA
The Business Shifter™

Do you get stuck when trying to figure out what to offer to your market next? Do you wonder if they'll buy what you put together for them?

Just follow these three steps to easily create your next successful offer:

Step 1: Know what your market WANTS

Be really clear on your market, what their problem is, and what your solution to that problem is. And more importantly, don't make the mistake of creating something that you think your market needs before you find out if it's something they want.

How do you find out what they want? Ask them!

Step 2: Fill in the holes in your Planned Profit Path™

In the business model I designed and teach, there are different offers at different price points. When deciding what to offer next, take a look at your Planned Profit Path™ and see where your next gap is and then fill it.

So, if you have a Free Taste and nothing in the less than $50 range at the first level of the Planned Profit Path™ that's the first gap you'll want to fill.

One way you can fill this gap is to take one of your larger offerings and modulize it to fill in a lower level of your Planned Profit Path™.

Advanced TIP: if you have a $50 product and it's selling really well, that's when you want to start creating something at the next level of the Planned Profit Path™ to offer, which would be at a higher price point.

Step 3: Create the Offer
Once you have identified the hole to fill you can start creating your next product, program or service.

Knowing what level you're creating your product for will inform the end product. And you'll want to make sure your time and effort equals the price point.

Here are some examples to get you started. Know that your market may demand higher (or lower, but not much) price points:

Level 1: $50
- ebook
- CD
- print book
- journal/day planners
- teleseminar

Level 2: $200
- teleseminars - single or series
- e-manuals
- short group coaching programs
- two-part-multi-media module
- live workshops or seminars

And don't forget - create a product that you actually enjoy creating!

Consider joining us at my 6th annual Online Business Breakthrough Workshop to learn how to design and fill in your own Planned Profit Path™.

Kenneth Jennings CEO & President of Mr. Rekey on Women Entrepreneurs Radio™

Topic: Franchise business model positives and negatives

Kenneth Jennings CEO & president, Mr. Rekey

Kenneth's business sense and entrepreneurial passion began early - he started his first business at 13 years old selling garden seeds door-to-door. This adventure literally planted the seed that led him to start Texas Rekey Locksmith Service from the trunk of his car in 1995. The company was rebranded as Mr. Rekey Locksmith® Services when it expanded outside of Texas 10 years later.

Seeking out an inventive approach, Kenneth's vision was to provide reliable residential and commercial locksmith services at a straightforward all-inclusive price, and focus on rekeying rather than replacing locks, thereby saving the customer time and money. Kenneth revolutionized and transformed an industry that was previously known for inconsistencies by creating a reputable brand identity and multiple opportunities for market growth to its franchisees.

Today, Kenneth is a hands-on CEO, leading a unique culture of locksmith professionals who are easily recognizable by their clean, uniformed and branded appearance. He wears many hats at the company, one of which is franchise owner and also franchisee to over 20 Mr. Rekey territories. Based on his extensive, real-world operations and growth, Kenneth is able to provide franchisees a comprehensive business platform that includes everything from back-office operations, marketing methodology, company certified training, a proven support team, and industry specific tools and equipment.

During the last 35 years, Kenneth has founded more than 40 businesses and spent time studying the success of other business leaders in thriving industries and applying them to his own business ventures. He also mentors numerous entrepreneurs in his hometown of Austin, Texas.
Kenneth has two children who both play an active role in his organizations. He enjoys traveling with his wife Vicki and playing tennis.

When Goals are Forgotten: 4 Steps to Get Back on Track

by Jack Canfield

Most people start pursuing their goals – especially New Year’s resolutions – with great passion. But over time, they lose momentum, burn out and put their dreams aside.

If this happens to you, it’s a clear-cut sign that your goals are not sustainable. In this article, you’ll discover how to get back on track toward your goals – and accelerate your momentum.

1. Evaluate Your Motivation

If you’ve lost momentum toward your goals, the first thing to do is verify your commitment. A lot of our goals tend to be “should’s” rather than deep “want to’s.” But I’ve discovered that without a burning desire to achieve a goal, your motivation wanes quickly, and your subconscious mind turns its attention to more exciting desires.

For example, many people set New Year’s resolutions to lose weight – a goal that often falls into the “should” category. We feel like should lose weight because it will make us healthier, reduce stress on our joints, and make us feel more confident and attractive. Unfortunately, these benefits are typically not compelling enough to motivate us to keep our commitment to lose the extra pounds.

However, if you find out that a new baby will soon join your family, your “why” suddenly becomes bigger. Now you’re motivated to lose weight because doing so will increase the odds that you’ll be around to watch that baby grow into adulthood.

Pull out your list of goals, and for each one, ask, “What is my why? Why do I want to achieve this? And am I committed enough to my why to do whatever it takes to achieve this goal?” By identifying or even upgrading your “why,” you can tap into greater motivation and commitment to achieve your goal.

2. Create an Action Plan

Once you’ve confirmed that your goals are things you truly want to achieve, the next thing to do is to create an action plan.

One by one, break each of your goals down. Get clear on what would really be required to achieve each goal. Realistically assess how many hours it would take each week or day to achieve the goal.

Next, start scheduling all of the activities that are required to achieve your various goals. (Note: If you don’t know all of the steps to achieve them, just list the ones that you are aware of for the purposes of this exercise; the rest of the steps will unfold once you begin taking action.)

Once you start scheduling key activities into your calendars, many of us begin to realize that there’s not enough time in our schedules to accomplish everything we want to do. If this is the case for you, go back and prioritize your goals. Which goals matter the most to you? Do any of your goals need to achieved before you can start working on another goal?

3. Declare Your Intentions

When you’re clear about which goals you’ll work on, you can increase your commitment by publicly declaring your intentions. Share your goals with the people in your life – the more, the better. You’ll be more likely to take action toward achieving your goals when the alternative is losing face with people about whom you care.

If the threat of public humiliation isn’t enough, you also can incorporate a negative consequence. Find something that will be painful for you to do, and publicly commit to enduring the consequence if you don’t achieve your goal.

Some people are more motivated by rewards than punishments. If this describes you, find a reward that you’ll receive upon completion of your goal. This could be anything from a vacation to buying the car you want or something more simple, such as treating yourself to a new outfit, Louis Vuitton bag or a massage. Rewards are powerful for motivating your inner child.

4. Creating Accountability

Most of us find it easy to let ourselves off the hook. We can quickly justify why we haven’t followed through on our commitment to take action on any particular day, just as we can easily make excuses about why we miss our targets completely.

If you find yourself frequently slipping into these habits, an accountability partner will be a huge benefit to you. In fact, I believe so strongly in accountability partners that  participants at my annual Breakthrough to Success training  pair up with another attendee as their accountability partner before they leave.

Accountability partnerships work as follows: Each morning, you hold a 5-minute phone call during which you each share what you’re committing to do that day. For example, you could share your “Rule of 5,” in which you commit to doing 5 things to move you toward your biggest goal. (Tip: Use my Top 5 Priority Action Post-It notes to keep your commitment front and center.)

The next morning, you report on your progress from the previous day and share what you’ll accomplish in the coming 24-hour period. Knowing that your partner will be asking you whether you upheld your commitments the day before can be a powerful motivator for getting tasks completed.

A proven twist on accountability partnerships is working toward your goal with another person. For example, I meditate with my wife every morning. We hold each other accountable. If I sleep in too late, I can count on Inga to wake me up and say, “Come on, we’re meditating now.”

If you find that having a friend or colleague serve as your accountability partner is not enough, consider hiring a professional, such as a coach or trainer. These individuals may be better equipped to recognize self-sabotaging behaviors and beliefs – as well as to hold you accountable for taking action. And if you’re someone who hates to waste money, knowing that you’re paying someone to hold you accountable might be the added motivation you need to keep your commitments.

Get Back on Track – Starting TODAY!

It’s normal to veer off course when pursuing goals. Sometimes this happens because we’re not truly committed to our goals. Other times, it’s because we struggle to hold ourselves accountable for doing the necessary work. Use the tips in this article to get yourself back on track in making steady progress in turning your dreams into a reality.

Asking for Help: The Fastest Path to Business Success

By Alicia Forest, MBA
The Business Shifter™


I don't know why but some of us seem to be hard-wired to go it alone! I know that my tendency is to figure it out for myself before I will ask for help. Yet over the last few years, I've learned to embrace that asking for help is not a reflection on my inability to go it alone, but in fact a reflection of how much I think what I do and who I am is worthy of receiving help.

Here are 3 simple ways to ask for help in your business that will move you towards success with much more ease and grace:

1. Inner Circle Support

I'm blessed in that I have a husband who supports the work I do and the business I've been creating since its inception in 2001. Yet I know this is a hot button for a lot of entrepreneurs, that they don't feel they have the spousal or partner support they crave.

While I don't have THE answer to getting your significant other onboard, I did have a personal aha that I will share that may help a bit.

The bottom line is that it doesn't matter if your spouse, partner, parent or anyone else significant in your life thinks what you do matters. It only matters that YOU think it matters.

Logically, you know you can't change people, only your response to people. You may wish you felt more support than you do, but wishing won't make it so. What will change your feeling is if you change how you feel about what you perceive to be their lack of support. If you remember that it only matters that YOU know what you do matters, that will make all the difference.

2. Peer Support

Whether you invest in a group with leader or gather your best business friends together on a regular basis, give yourself the gift of peer support in some way. It's critical for ongoing help but even more important during those times when you're between private mentor support.

At an event I attended recently, I was surrounded by colleagues who had become friends over the years, and it was very clear to me that the support I was receiving from those friends was more important that the actual content I had come to learn. But if I hadn't reached out asking for that support, I wouldn't have had the critical shifts I needed to experience at this point in my business to move it forward.

3. Outside Support

Sometimes we need support for our business from places outside it altogether. Whether it's engaging in a favorite sport, hobby or activity, or meditating or journaling, taking time off and completely unplugging, or having a conversation with a supportive friend who doesn't have anything to do with what we do for work and just might have that unique perspective to shift ours that we need.

Where in you life can you ask for support that will help your business?

And that's the point - to ask for the support we need. Take it from a former lone ranger... once you start asking and stay open to receiving, miracles can happen.

Designing a business that you love around the life you want is one of the pillars on which I stand and teach. Learn how to do this for YOUR business (and life) at my annual Online Business Breakthrough Workshop HERE.
