Here’s Greta, my life saving au-pair.

I Love Telling You About My Wins – But When I Lose? I Go Quiet – Read About My Epic Fails

The other day, I was able to report a great streak of wins to my accountability community. After a long stretch of dry spell (i.e. tons of hard work with little to show for it), the flood gates opened and contracts started flowing in.

Quickly, I got on the (closed) meeds to share just how GREAT I felt. I received lots of congrats along with requests for advice.

Well, now it’s Monday again. A regular Monday when all there is to do is rinse and repeat. What does an Oscar winner do Monday after the awards weekend? If I were to guess, they probably get up and work! This gave me pause. How EAGER was I to share my wins? Very, but during the long stretch of NO wins, I was keeping awfully quiet, wasn’t I? Why? Because I didn’t want anybody to think I was failing! I also didn’t want to hear myself defending the hard work I was doing. Most of all, however, I didn’t want anyone to think I was a busy bee. That person who stays busy not to confront their feelings, reality, whatever…but rarely gets anything out of their hands of value. Frankly, I didn’t want anyone to see me as THAT person who can’t produce a result.:!

No matter how much spiritual and personal growth work I’ve done over the years, I STILL catch myself wanting to look good. STILL wanting to seem like I have it all together, being the envy of all. Yuck. Actually. I don’t. I don’t have it all together. Not only that – let me tell you some epic fails:

• I founded and ran a fragrance company and could never get sales above a hundred or a hundred and fifty thousand a year. Some of the conditioner bottles with my fragrance exploded conditioner on some customers. There was some sort of rising reaction that popped the tops off the bottles. Harmless but messy – and mostly? Very embarrassing. Take that phone call. Anyone?

• I failed at my first marriage.

• I got a sorry store-bought cake to bring to my now husband’s off-site birthday – only to find out that most attendees were chefs. Who had to suffer through my god-awful cake.

As I write this, there’s a voice in my head asking if I really should be telling you this, and I actually should hit “Send” after I finish typing.

I don’t like being this open and vulnerable and sharing my ¨uglies¨. I don’t know many people who are, but that’s neither here nor there. Sharing yourself openly makes it so people can relate to you. How many people, of ALL the people you know, do you feel you can truly relate to? Still, it is SO hard to go there…

However, I do think this is the real breakthrough for people. It’s the real breakthrough for ME, that I know… It doesn’t mean you’re less credible or likeable or any of that. It actually makes you more relatable. I’ve seen it over and over again. It also feels important to share this because I don’t ever want to end up in that self-alienating ice castle. SO many things could possible separate us as humans anyway – why make it more so?

Is it hard for YOU to be vulnerable, to open up, to share yourself? In life, business or in your relationship? My last summit was all about online reach. For those of you who participated-you’ve probably noticed that the posts where you’re the most vulnerable, that’s where you got the most ¨Likes¨…?

If it’s difficult for you to open up, would it make a difference for you to learn how to do it? How to share yourself in an authentic, open, yet appropriate, manner…?

Click here to book a FREE ¨Breaking Open¨ session – so that I can give you the step-by-step words and actions that will help you do just that! The people that book in the next 48 hours get a free inspo booklet with book recommendations and tools for being more open and vulnerable in your life! What say you? Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it…? 🙂

Love always,

Coach Jo

If You Ever Considered Coaching-Take This Survey

Hi all –

I’m writing this to these categories of people:

1) People who have had a coach in the past

2) People who have thought about having a coach

3) People who have had coaching type conversations

Or you who have coached with me in the past. Or you and I’ve had deep conversations about coaching. And you may have shared your life situation with me and we’ve discussed what to do about it. But that was then.

You are in a different place now, and so is the world. To better serve, I need to know EXACTLY what you and others are most likely to be dealing with now. And if you broke up that pattern, had that breakthrough, achieved a result you’ve been longing for – what area would that be in?

So – would you do me a quick favour? Would you go to this page to answer a few brief questions – ? So I can better serve as a coach!


Thank you so much!

Why Everyone Will Need an Online Business in 10 Years

Jumpcut recently wrote that ¨in the next 10 years, nearly half all jobs are a risk of being wiped out due to automation.¨ Learning to create a certain type of online business is the best way to thrive in the Age of Automation. As much as politicians like to say it, those lost manufacturing jobs weren’t due to outsourcing. The jobs are getting automated. So WE – have to get creative.
