In high school I was the “go to person” for advice. I don’t really remember how that happened, but it did.
I've always had the desire to help others through their challenges.
In high school, college, university and in the workplace, friends would come to me for advice.
When I started my own business in the direct marketing industry the trend continued, I was still the go to person, the coach, the one to support others, especially women on how to transition from corporate to entrepreneurship. I worked with them to set up systems, structures, sales strategies and scripts to build their business.
It was helping them to build a foundation for their business so they can build it up and eventually fire their boss. Allowing them to work from home so they could spend more time with their children.
In the midst of all of this one of my colleagues said, “Carolyn, you know you should charge people for this...

Have you ever been in the audience in a seminar and the speaker says what is your WHY?
I have been in that audience so many times and I never really understood what they meant by what is your why.
I want a million dollars, more vacations, bigger home, etc. We realized everyone had the same things on their list, and the speaker would say, “that’s not it, dig deeper”. What did that actually mean, dig deeper?
I later realized that all of those things were the benefits of your why or what I call your purpose.
It’s the part of your business that was your starting point. Something that was missing from your life or in the market that you needed or wanted and could not find it. A product, a service. So, you decided to create it or make it better. It’s the part of your dream that kick-started everything.
It states what the purpose of your company is and what service or product you...
How to create a plan that will get you to your Vision and Goals in half the time
Creating your Vision and purpose is the first part of having a successful business. The second part is having a sustainable action plan that lays everything out to reaching your bullseye and making your dream a reality.
In our December Newsletter and Blog, we discussed steps to create or expand your business vision. We asked you to make your list of tangible goals you want to accomplish, your vision of where you want your business to go.
Let’s look at how to set up your plan for the next year.
YOUR PLAN IS YOUR ROAD MAP TO REACHING YOUR DREAM. IT IS YOUR GUIDE, YOUR GSP THAT GUIDES YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
Your plan needs to be well thought out and organized. Let’s start out with what you need to do in the first year of your plan to move it forward and increase your income and business growth.
Your Dream/Vision is a mental picture of the future state of where you want your...
Why is a powerful Vision so important for your business?
Your vision is your:
The Protein shake in the morning
The cup of coffee that starts your day right
The work out session that leaves you feeling exhilarated
The wake-up call that shakes your world like an earthquake
It is your power source that keeps you excited and drives you to the finish line.
If you don't feel like this, YOUR VISION is not big enough or it is not the right one for YOU.
Think of your vision like a GSP. We use our GPS to get to a location. Your Vision is very similar. You would decide where you want to go and enter it into your GPS to direct you on how to get there. Your GSP will also redirect your when there is an accident or traffic and then bring back to your path to get you to your destination.
Your Vision is your GSP for your business. Your vision is where you want to take your business, where you want to go. Without your vision you can not create a...
