Success is a Mindset

March 2014

The annual WIN conference, “Destined to Win,” in Minneapolis, MN, was an amazing event. I had an opportunity to meet and talk with women in all different phases of their business, from running multimillion dollar companies to those who have anyour brilliant you speech bubble 4idea and a dream for their next step.

Two years ago I attended the event with what I thought was openness, but running through my mind was the assumption “easy for them to say, but I cannot do this.”

Last year ago I attended the event with a curiosity about the women who blazed the trail and created their own version of a successful business and life.  This year I was honored to be on a panel of three women business owners, sharing our stories--both personal and professional--about our path to create six figures and beyond.

So what happened to get from sitting in the audience to taking the stage to be seen, heard, and to inspire others to create their path to success?  I was willing to learn from others and change how I was thinking.

Success, no matter how you define it for your business or yourself, is largely a mindset which then drives the decisions we make and the actions we take. These are the top three mindset shift I made and I share them with you because if I can do it, anyone can!


1.) “Naked Truth Moment” is the defining moment when you get totally real and clear with yourself to ask the questions:  “Where I am right now and what is my  vision of what is possible that pulls me forward?”

The mindset shift is from “what is here right now?” to “what is possible?”


2.) “Warm Yourself with Others” who will hold onto you, as a powerful woman  no matter what, because they believe in you, and see you bigger even when you can’t see that  for yourself.

The mindset shift is from doing it all yourself to allowing others to help you.

3.) “Opportunities have expiration dates” and waiting for the right moment is a death sentence for your business.  As you are leveling up your business, there will be innovative ideas that stretch you to become a bigger version of you.

The mindset shift is from I will do that someday to taking the opportunity and learning to step into it.

In the spirit of WIN, I am here to help you figure out where you are in the cycle of business and what steps you need to take to move forward. If you are willing to learn, I offer a complimentary Business and Money Breakthrough Strategy Session.  In a private conversation, you and I will:

I look forward to hearing from you!
