Who rules your second house of money?

Did you ever wonder how Beyoncé and Oprah run empires with the same 24 hours a day that we all have? Sure, they have plenty of hired help. At the end of the day, though, they sink or swim based on their own mindset, motivation, and business savvy. No one you ever hire will be 100% focused on you. 

I remind myself of this all the time. No matter how much support from loved ones I have, I run my own business. And no matter how much help I may hire, success is still up to me. And your success is up to YOU! You can either have excuses or results. But you can’t have both. Distractions too are the death of success.

And here’s the thing: Once you find your PASSION, it’s not about work anymore. It’s about the JOY of doing what you love. Not that I love everything that I do every day, because I don’t. It’s that my passion gives me my Purpose to get out of bed in the morning and keep going through the fear and chaos of these turbulent times.  

I do love teaching. And this too was confirmed for me in my Personalized Money Report. I have talked about this with you in the past. I also have Virgo ruling on the second house. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo. Your second house rules your personal income. And what you love and value. How to maximize your resources for your greatest success. 

My Money Report suggests that I can be financially influential with my personality. For instance, this might suggest success through sales, marketing or other mercurial occupations, i.e. writing, speaking, and lecturing. I do enjoy all of these activities. And they’ve helped me be successful throughout my life. Who rules your second house of money?

I too notice the cyclical effect of Mercury retrograde in my business. And I am thrilled that Mercury who rules commerce and the marketplace is now direct! This is good news. YAY!

I am incredibly grateful to those that have trusted me over the years. While they learned from me. I too have learned from them. I’ve acquired new skills, but most of all. I’ve learned how and where I can best help.  

Between YouTube and the Academy, I get asked a lot about how I manage so many different projects. Here’s my best advice:  

 

PLAN

Spend at least 10% of your time planning. Figure out what needs to get done. Write everything down, from the biggest tasks to the smallest.

 

PRIORITIZE  

In order to be effective, you want to work SMART. 

Not sure how to prioritize? First, review the list of tasks that you’ve created. 

Next, weed out the secondary tasks. These are the things that you can’t do just yet. For example, there’s no need to put a mailing list sign up on your website until you have a lead magnet to give away. Which means you give a gift for signing up. And you want to make sure that you tell people what that gift is; because we love getting free stuff. It makes us feel special to get gifts. Its human nature.

And, there’s no sense working on social media posts until you’ve set up your accounts. Customers need to have a place to land. And this will prove that you are ready to RECEIVE the abundance the universe wants to send to you. 

Once you’ve narrowed down your list to your primary tasks – the things you CAN do right now – then plan out what will give you the most impact. Here’s one example: researching to find a business niche will go farther than creating a hundred products to see what works. And a mailing list can be way more powerful than posting on Facebook every day.  

If you’re still stuck, remember this: there is no right or wrong answer. If you aren’t certain where to focus your time, pick a task, and work on it. It’s better to move forward doing something than sit still and do nothing. Action speaks louder than struggling and helps to move the energy forward.

SCHEDULE 

Once you’ve got your list of priority tasks, schedule them on your calendar. Even if you only have one hour a week, or 10 minutes here and there, schedule them in. Then, stick to your schedule.  

You’ll want to review your schedule every morning. Make sure you’re prepared to work when you can. That might mean taking your laptop, journal, or other work items with you first thing in the morning.  

And don’t forget to be smart about your schedule. Have an extra hour while the kids are at practice? Use that time and get some work done. Waiting at the doctor’s office? Work on the engagement for your social media or responding to your YouTube comments. 

 

BE ACCOUNTABLE 

Make sure that you continue the process. Spend time planning every week. Did you get everything done you wanted to? If not, why not? Make a note of your challenges and what you can do to tackle them. Do you need to add new tasks to your priority list? Do you need to reschedule something from last week?  

Remember, only YOU can hold yourself accountable for your dreams. If you truly want something, you CAN achieve it. The only thing holding you back is you.

   

“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” 

 –Colin Powell 

 

CELEBRATE 

Lastly, and this is a big one. Make sure to REWARD yourself for finishing your tasks. It’s important not to just jump to the next thing. Instead, take a moment and celebrate your accomplishments. Celebrate your hard work. Celebrate the small wins and the lessons. Reward yourself for doing the work. It can be for five fun minutes. Put your favorite song on and dance. Small moments can do BIG things for you.  There are up and down days. Life is no rose garden. And remember that a job well done is its own reward in personal satisfaction. It keeps a smile on your face. And what success means for me. What makes you feel successful? Feedback on the blog we would love to hear from you.

To your greatest success!  

Love and Abundance,

P.S.

The Personalized Money Report is a fantastic tool to help you understand your relationship with money. And, how you can maximize your natal birth chart to build abundance! 

Are you a winner or a troll?

I’ve been in this business long enough that I can predict who will be successful in their goals. I can also see who will not. I’m going to share a few predictors here:

Predictor number one:

Are you willing to do the research to learn? Will you put in the work necessary? Are you WILLING to roll up your sleeves for 16-hour days? No? Well, I’ve got bad news for you.

Predictor number two:

Are you working to your strengths? Are you seeking ways to play to your strengths? If not, it’s time to start exploring what makes you HAPPY. What are you good at? What comes natural to you? If you don’t know what you’re good at, start exploring! Once you’ve got a few ideas, find ways to make money with it.

Predictor number three:

Are you genuinely happy for those around you? When friends are successful while you’re at a low point, are you still jumping for JOY with them?

This is such a simple thing. It doesn’t cost anything. It doesn’t even take any time. In fact, it often takes MORE time to be unhappy at someone’s success. So, why are so many people happier when they’re putting others down?

Misery loves company, right? Well, so does success. If you want success, surround yourself with successful people. CELEBRATE with them! All it takes is a quick text, call, or note. Even just a quick positive vibe sent their way can be a HUGE asset for both them AND YOU!

When we send positivity into the world, we get positivity back. We get SUCCESS!

And negativity breeds more of the same. Why jeopardize your own success by putting negative energy into the world? Negativity will only bring YOU down. Did you know that we make more wrinkles from frowning then we do from smiling?

Here’s another side effect of celebrating others. Once you get used to celebrating others. It becomes much easier to CELEBRATE yourself. There are so many people out there that hide in the shadows. They don’t share their goals or their successes. They have lots of excuses as to why they’re not where they want to be. Are you one of those people?

I promise, if you start sharing your successes – even the little ones – you’ll find so much support from those that want to celebrate YOU! Sure, there may be a few trolls along the way, but who cares? Trolls are only spewing their own negativity because they’re unhappy. Ignore them and move on. This is why you have a delete key.

Focus on celebrating others and too let them celebrate you!  Don’t be shy. Be bold. Be brave. I don’t always get it RIGHT the first time. What is that saying, third time’s a charm. “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” –Winston Churchill

Now here’s your challenge. Share one thing this week with others that you’re proud of. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, let it out. Take a chance. Shine your light. And watch the LOVE pour in!

Love,

There is no spell to cast for success

I get asked all the time how to start a business. How to grow a business. How to become successful doing what you love. The truth is, there is no magic pill. There is no spell to be cast. I’ve got no secret weapons that I deployed to grow my channel, courses, and business.  

You know what I do have? A passion for helping people, a desire to learn, and a whole lot of determination. 

These are the traits that separate successful people from those that are still struggling. This is GOOD NEWS! It means that if you haven’t yet reached your goals. YOU CAN! Anybody can! 

So, if you want to start or grow a business. You want to help people. Simple enough, right? You might want to help them clean their carpets. Or you might want to help them manage their finances. When you boil it down, it’s all the same. Helping people is your bottom line. No matter what your business.

Next, you have to know HOW to help them. Sure, you need to know how to clean carpets well. But you also need to know how to MARKET yourself. and how to buy the right equipment to do the job.  

If no one knows you exist. you’re not helping them. If you show up and don’t have the right tools. You’re not helping them. Helping people isn’t just about solving their problems. Helping your customers is about being good at running your business. 

Now comes the key. 

You don’t want to look at marketing as a big, scary task. You want to look at it as finding your ideal client so you can HELP them. Don’t get bogged down trying to find the best cleaning machine. Don’t throw up your hands because you’re not good at mechanical stuff. It’s just another facet of helping your client. And you can handle it!

With this subtle mind shift, things get a lot less daunting. And a lot easier to manage. Try to see your product or service from the customers point of view. Frame your marketing in a way that speaks DIRECTLY to them.

The first question that people ask is, “What’s in it for me?” This is human nature. How are you going to help me? Are you going to solve my problem? Are you going to teach me something new? Are you going to make me laugh and see the lighter side of life? See where I am going with this? Walk a mile in the shoes of your ideal client. Empathy is a key ingredient to your marketing success. The market (your tribe) will tell you what they want from you. Your job is to listen to their feedback and then act upon it.

So, next time you’re not sure how to do something. Or what you need to do next. Do what I do: JUST DIVE IN! Take a few bites out of that elephant each day. And acknowledge your wins big or small each day.

Google is your friend! There are Facebook groups and message boards for every topic under the sun. There are local networking clubs. You can find YouTube videos on every subject you can think of. And some you would never have dreamed of! There are also training sites like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning. 

Did you know there is a Facebook group dedicated to people who use Wix to blog? There’s another for running Google Ads. There’s one for dry cleaner owners, for massage therapists, and Etsy sellers. And for just about anything you can think of. And, most of them are free to join. If it’s free. it’s for me. One of my favorite sayings! These groups are filled with experts. Who are ready to share their knowledge about the industry and the lessons that they’ve learned along the way. This is good news! YAY!

The next time you don’t know how to do something. I challenge you to dig in and find out. Do the research work. Eliminate distractions from your life.  And master your craft. Become the best at what you do!

 It doesn’t matter if it’s something big or just a little thing. Google it! Search it on YouTube! Reach out on a Facebook Group. Or find a message board that specializes in that topic.

Now, you do need to know some limits. For instance, if you know nothing about websites. You might want to hire a web developer. BUT once that website is built and you need a quick picture change? Google “updating a Wix picture” (or WordPress, or Shopify…) You’ll be amazed at the resources out there. Just waiting for you.  

Your willingness to learn and your pure DETERMINATION to find out is what will separate you from the dreamers. 

I promise, every time you learn something new. You’ll be super-proud of yourself. As you ought to be! This is how you grow fast and work smart. 

Now, what have you been struggling with lately? Go research that RIGHT NOW!

Love,

How to find your North Star

“The minute you choose to do what you really want to do. It’s a different kind of life.”

–Buckminster Fuller

 

One of the things I love about my job is setting my own schedule.  

Through my YouTube channel and my Academy, I also get to help people all over the world find their passion, channel their energies into it, and grow it into a sustainable business. YAY!

So many people come to me with really great ideas, and they’re not sure how to get started. I love helping them and seeing people transform from unsure to UNSTOPPABLE!

But what if you don’t know what you want to do? What if you’re not sure what your passion is? NO PROBLEM! The fact that you’re looking for something means you’re open and ready for change. So, how do you go about it if you don’t know WHAT change you want?

Here’s an exercise for you.

Close your eyes for a moment and envision yourself just waking up and getting ready to take on the day. Heck, if you want to try this tomorrow morning, do it! Either way, right now or tomorrow, is fine.

How do you fill the time just after you rise and grab your coffee? In this exercise, you’ve got a day all to yourself with zero responsibility. 

What is the first thing that you want to do? 

I know one person that lives and breathes the stock market. So, they head to their computer to watch all the stock prices rise and fall like a fascinating movie. Is that you? Or would you rather head to the kitchen and bake something? Or go for a run? 

Pick the one thing that you want more than any other to spend the morning doing. Whatever you choose, make a note of it.

After lunch, where to next? Back to your morning activity, or is it time to work on something new?

Make a note of your IDEAL afternoon activity. 

Dinner time arrives, you have a great time with loved ones. A good friend asks you to tell them all about your activities for the day. They know you’re skilled at it and want to know everything! Even if you’re still learning, give yourself credit! Acknowledge that you probably know a lot more than the average person. 

The next step is important. I want you to look back on your notes. Out of a million options on how you could have spent the day, you chose certain things.

Why did you make those choices? What about those activities made you happy? 

Now, take a look at everything you’ve written. How can you make money doing one of those things? Write down as many ways as you can think of.  

As they say, “once you find your true calling, you’ll never work another day in your life.”  

This is mostly true. You’ll always have days where you’re not thrilled about your task list. Believe me, though, it will be a lot easier to handle a boring task to support your PASSION than doing that same thing at a dead-end job.

If you’re serious about building a life you love, don’t wait! Get started today discovering your passion! Work EVERY DAY towards it. This is how you find your North Star. Your soul will love you for it.

I promise that next year you’ll be proud of who you’ve become. 

Love,

Where do you want to be in 3 months from now?

No one ever says they wished they’d spent less time with their families and more time working a job they hated. No one says that their fulfillment came from hustling in a rat race. Yet, many people work jobs that leave them feeling empty, that take time away from the people they love, and that leave them too tired to pursue the hobbies that make them happy. All because the need to survive creates fear. It’s easy to fear not having enough, not being able to get more, or that resources will dry up.

The world has become poisoned by a scarcity mindset through fear; “I need to have more because there’s not enough for everyone. When I have enough for me, then I’ll help others who don’t have enough.” This way of living, as in gaining more of what we already have out of fear we won’t be able to get any more of it, closes us off to a fulfilling life. We end up trading too much of our time and sanity to earn more money. We spend more and more on things that don’t matter to us. We feel unnecessary pressure to own, have, and do things one way because that’s what we’ve been told to define things as “success.” This type of thinking can keep you in survival mode.

I think more people need to be having this conversation, about what makes them truly happy. Because we can all easily get caught up in money and lifestyle that way. Fulfillment has nothing to do with how much money you can spend on something. A more extravagant lifestyle is not better or more meaningful. Your life is what you make of it regardless of how much material wealth you have.

When I started my YouTube channel, I wanted to help others by sharing my gifts. It seemed like a great platform to do that because no one was yet providing detailed astrology readings. It lets me reach people around the world to who I would otherwise have no connection to. I just followed my intuition – my need to live my life by following my heart, and it worked out in my favor. It always does! So, what are you holding yourself back from? What message or gift do you feel called to share with the world?

I am thrilled to share with you my new YouTube Insiders course. That I will be offering in August. It’s about How to Build A Thriving YouTube Channel, a Winning Website, and so much more. Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of YouTube says that by the end of 2020 there will be 5 Billion users on YouTube. This creates opportunities for anyone who wants to grow and prosper. Here is a brief video explaining my Free Webinar.


I recognize that not all of my readers will be interested. This is why I have created a separate email list for you to sign up here: YouTube Insiders Course

And when you do sign up, you will get the “Love My Business Program.” A $77 value simply for joining us!

I know I’ve mentioned money a lot in this blog. But I’m talking about wealth in every sense of the word here. Do you feel wealthy in love and companionship? Do you feel wealthy in happy memories and experiences? Do you feel wealthy in having work you’re excited about? Do you have the time you need to do the things that light you up? Are you loving you properly?

It’s up to you to find fulfillment in your life. It’s up to you to decide what you will do with your time. How you’ll spend your money, and why. The way you do that is to live authentically. Be true to yourself. Take risks.  Be kind to you. Decide for yourself what happiness is and know that you will always have enough of everything you need to live a comfortable, joyful life.

Maybe you’re not entirely sure what that means. Maybe you’ve been doing things the way you were taught to for so long. You’re not sure what feels right for you. If that’s the case, it’s never too late to dig deep and make changes. I discuss these concepts and more on my own YouTube channel. From finding your bliss to earning an income doing what you love. I help you tackle it all. Nothing brings me greater pleasure.

As you may already know, I’m also passionate about building people up to start and thrive in their own businesses! I love to help them realize their gifts and turn it into a profitable business. Where they get to be their own boss and decide how to spend their time. If you’ve been stuck and ready for a breakthrough. Or you want to explore what life can be with a fresh mindset. I encourage you to sign up for my Free YouTube Webinar.  Whether you have a business of your own. Want to start one, or want to explore your hobbies in a fun way. This course will give you all the tips and tricks to get started.

Fulfillment in life is about the connections you make and the time you spend pursuing the things that bring you joy. You never know when you could help someone. Teach them something new, or share exciting news all from your own YouTube channel. I can help you get started so that you get through the learning curve. And nail your first video posts without fear or doubt!  The time to live for yourself is now! Don’t wait to shine your light and find your bliss. There’s nothing to lose. I can show you how to go from surviving to thriving! Where do you want to be in 3 months from now?

with enormous love,

XO
