There is an anonymous quote that says, "Entrepreneurs live for a couple of years how others won't so they can live the rest of their lives how others can't."

This isn't just an eloquent way of saying that entrepreneurship takes effort.

Becoming an entrepreneur takes massive sacrifice!

You may need to lose sleep, shuffle childcare schedules, give up things you love to do, and miss out on time with friends.

You may need to mortgage your home or work several jobs to make it happen.

Each entrepreneur has to make their own sacrifices, but the fact is you will not achieve business success unless you’re FULLY committed.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the sacrifice and discipline it takes to be an entrepreneur and how to decide if it's really what you want.

How often have you dreamed of your biggest goal and thought it just seemed too daunting to ever accomplish?

It's too big! It's too far away! It's so hard to imagine you will ever get there.

It's easy to get bogged down by the weight of our goals.

But when we break them down, we can see that instead of tackling it all at once, we can take tiny baby steps to get where we need to go.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how small steps can help you accomplish your biggest goals.

When was the last time you accomplished a huge goal?

Maybe you graduated school. Maybe you ran a marathon or bought a house. Whatever it was, I'm sure it took a lot of time, planning, and hard work.

When it comes to most things in life, we expect that the big goals are going to be difficult. But this isn't always as clear when we're starting a business. For some reason, we frequently underestimate the challenge or expect some parts to be "easy."

But the truth is that starting a successful business is always going to be difficult. There is just no getting around it. The mark of a successful entrepreneur is the ability to accept the struggle and work through it.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the fact that starting a business is never going to be easy and showing you how to persevere through the challenging times.

Do you desperately want to build your online lifestyle business, but you have no idea where to start?

I see it all the time! People want to create a business, but they don't know what steps to take first or what actions will make the biggest impact.

It might feel overwhelming to get started, but you CAN create a successful online lifestyle business as long as you set these three things in place.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the first three steps you need to take when you're building your online lifestyle business.

How often do you reach the end of your day and wonder where the time went?

You feel like your wheels were spinning all day at full speed, but you don’t really have much to show for all that effort.

It’s a common problem, isn’t it? You realize you spent too much time focused on the things that didn’t make a big impact in your life or business, and far too little on the stuff that matters most.

This used to happen to me frequently. But lately I’ve been tweaking just two things about my daily schedule, and my productivity has gone through the roof!

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to be dramatically more productive every day!

It may sound old fashioned, but I find I can get more done if I do a least 4 things for me -- eat something 3 times a day and take a time outside as #4.  That fresh air revitalizes me significantly and breathing in fresh air helps me keep going. This is from a 70 year old who is still managing a store.

When you think of being an entrepreneur, you likely imagine long hours and lots of varying tasks.

Entrepreneurs have to focus on marketing, accounting, building a brand, working with clients, and coming up with effective systems for your company.

But at the very core of entrepreneurship is the job of problem solving.

No matter what industry or niche you fall into, your job is to solve problems for your customers and potential customers.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how you can help solve your customers' problems in order to grow your business.

Have you ever made the same New Year's resolution several years in a row?

Do you have goals that have been on your to-do list for years, but you never actually take action to get them accomplished?

You're not alone!

Making big changes and taking big steps is painful!

It's so much more comfortable to carry on the way we are. But when you have a goal that you really want to accomplish, you can actually orchestrate the pain you need in order to take bold action.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how you can leverage pain to accomplish your goals.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the clutter of advertising online?

Do you scroll through your Facebook news feed and wish you could skip all the ads?

If so, you're not alone. It's easy to feel overwhelmed. Between ads, webinars, emails, and other marketing materials, you can feel like you're always being sold to.

But rather than getting frustrated, what if you decided to take an even closer look at the material and try to learn something?

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to learn from everything you read online (even the ads) and incorporate the lessons into your business.

Let's talk about creating content.

You know you need to create content for your audience in order to grow your business. You hear it over and over again from coaches and business experts.

But sometimes it can feel like an overwhelming task! You want to be on every social media platform, and you have all kinds of things you'd like to create, but you just haven't the time!

How can you create consistent content and stay relevant without letting all the other areas of your business crumble?

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to become a prolific creator of content that your audience will love!

How often do you compare yourself to other people and wish you had what they have?

Sometimes we look at others and think, “That person is richer/thinner/better/more successful than me.” The list goes on.

Just look on Facebook or Instagram and you’ll see plenty who seem to have it all. They might be people in your niche with more followers or more comments on their blogs, or they might be your friends and neighbors who have a better relationship/car/job than you.

But this comparison process is not only pointless, it often lacks the important factor of the truth. You have no real idea who that person is or what happens behind their closed doors.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about why comparing yourself to others will only lead to heartache and how you can learn to measure yourself against yourself instead.

Did you see the Lego Movie? I know, I know. It came out a couple of years ago; I’m a bit behind the times. But in any case, it was a great film, and it was monstrously successful!

And why was it so successful? Because Lego took a product and turned it into a story. What a brilliant plan!

Stories are the backbone of any great brand. Stories make us loyal to one brand over another. Plato said, “Those who tell stories rule the world.” Smart man, that Plato.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about stories and how they can help you relate to and engage with your audience.
