I recently saw the quote, “You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé.” floating around the web. When I first saw it, I chuckled, and thought "We sure do."
A few days later, I thought about that quote again and there was something that didn’t feel right about it. I’ve worked with thousands of artists and entrepreneurs and one thing they tell me over and over again is that they don’t feel they have enough time to accomplish their goals.
They wake up, have their coffee, tea, or green juice or what have you and after what seems like a few blinks the day is over. And at the end of it all, they only have the energy to watch some reality TV, have a half-hearted conversation with their spouse or just hit the hay and start all over again the next day. Does this sound familiar? If so, you're not alone!
When I got to really thinking about it, I realized that although we technically all do have the same amount of hours as Beyoncé the majority of us aren’t optimizing those hours.
That's why I felt it was important to come up with some what I call "#BeLikeBey Rules" that will actually make you start feeling like you have the hours you need to accomplish and achieve what you truly desire. So go ahead grab your favorite drink and find out how you too can #BeLikeBey. [click to continue…]
I really wanted to write this post because, I work with some talented and amazing clients who absolutely despise promoting themselves!
And I get it because I used to hate promoting myself too!
However, it was when I started changing my perspective on the topic that I actually started to see the results that I wanted in my business.
If you’re anything like I was, you may think that promoting yourself makes you selfish or unlikeable.
That voice in your head may say things like:
“Here I go talking about myself AGAIN.”
“No one wants to hear about my product/service/event/show/appearance/kickstarter etc.”
“I shared this already so my fanbase should know about this by now.”
If any of these sounds familiar, find out how you can promote yourself and actually feel good about it. Hey, if we're lucky by the end of this you might actually start to like the process.
