Stress, High-Achievers And The Untamed Mind

There’s lots to be scared of these days.

At the macro, political, economic, environmental level, any given day’s news can be deeply unsettling. At the personal level, every life has its share of significant challenges. Living a 21st century life, with all the rapid change, is hard on the nerves. Regularly, surveys testify that most of us experience moderate to high levels of stress every single month to the extent that now 1 in 6 Americans take pharmaceuticals, largely to lessen symptoms of depression and anxiety. Since our minds fixate on potential threats, and typically give them at least 3 times the attention of positive developments, it is understandable why we are becoming more and more anxious.

In response, we have developed many coping mechanisms: prescriptions, eating, shopping, other substances, denial, procrastination, temper tantrums or other forms of aggression, that head a long list of ways we deal with stress. One of the most common, and socially acceptable, avoidance behaviours is simply keeping busy, because if we keep really busy, we won’t have time to let the scary thoughts or emotions rise in our awareness. This is the coping mechanism of choice for many high achievers,.......read the full article here. https://acoach4u.com/stressful_times/

Social Media Basics

Hi Gang. Are you still a little skeptical, bemused, confused or generally on the fence about the value of Social Media for your coaching business? If so, I invite you to watch this free video I just posted on my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/BusinessAndLifeCoaching/ .

It explains how you can harness a few of the very cheap and very quick ways social media provides to dramatically build your reach, credibility, connections and revenues with large numbers of your ideal clients. I also share some social media basics to help you get started, productively.

I believe social media is one of the greatest, and yet underappreciated, gifts small business people have ever been given access to. Never before has a solo professional or small business owner had this ability to reach so many of their ideal clients. Enjoy. Steve Mitten, CPCC, MCC, Business Coach

P.S. - The Fall edition of my affordable marketing program, which includes 1 to 1 work with me, is now open for registration. You can check it out here https://acoach4u.com/for-coaches/steves-6-figure-practice-marketing-program/ and email or message me for a chat if you think you are a fit. (Just don't dawdle, I keep the group size small.) :)

No matter how you choose to market yourself, an effective website is an essential piece of your marketing strategy. This is because no matter how people hear of your product or service a high percentage of them will come to your website to check you out and learn more. And, if you play your cards right, you have the opportunity to begin win-win, long-term relationships, and generate ongoing business with many thousands of your ideal customers. In this video I will cover some of the key principles and best practices, as well as the most common mistakes small business owners make on their sites. xxx Steve.

The vast majority of small business owners, coaches, consultants, independent professionals and solopreneurs are not getting anywhere near enough business from their online activities (website, blog, social media, etc.) Many think it is too complicated, or they are discouraged by simplistic, inauthentic or over-hyped approaches.
However, the reality is that online or digital marketing is getting easier and far more accessible for the average solopreneur, at a the time when many conventional marketing approaches are losing their effectiveness. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to find a few easily accessible ways to build long-term, high integrity, win-win relationships with large numbers of your ideal customers.
To help those of you who want to learn how to reliably connect with far more of your ideal clients online, I am putting together a free video series covering some of the essentials of digital marketing. If you are interested, the first video is here.

Hi Gang.
In the last few weeks I have talked to a number of newer and established coaches who have found themselves in that agonizing place of either losing a bunch of clients in short order, or simply not having enough clients. It is at times like this that fear can spike and you can doubt yourself. Having gone through this place a few times in the earlier years of my practice, and knowing that is such a big part of being self-employed, I put this video together sharing MY #1 TIP ON WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR CLIENTS DISAPPEAR. If you enjoy it, please remember to like, comment on, and share it. Xxx s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzI-cHO508c
