10 Business Secrets I Wish I Knew When I Started Coaching

When I first got started as a coach & entrepreneur, I had no idea how to do it, and I stayed an amateur WAY longer than I care to admit.

The biggest mistakes I made were:

  • Not putting myself out there – like really sharing my true self with the world.
  • Not being consistent – this is really an upper limit problem.
  • Not getting the help I needed from the get-go.

So for those of you who dream to uplevel your side gig and make it your 100% reality,

If you long to finally leave the JOB that you know deep down is NOT the highest expression of your gifts,

And if you want to be financially free, even *wealthy*, because the world needs more conscious female millionaires,

Here ya go:

1. Start TODAY. That means not after you have a logo, an opt-in, or a fancy website.

2. Post content / value / opinions everyday – on your social media, and in groups where your ideal clients hang out. This is how you build a “brand.”

3. Make offers. You can’t make money unless you offer your services. The key to this is feeling that you’re really good at what you do. You gotta silence the doubts.

4. Know that “failing” is a good thing. Be really fucking vulnerable. Share your story. Keep going when you hear no.

5. Stick to one pathway and master it. Become a master, not a scattered downloader of every piece of free content available.

There are things I wish I knew….that took me a few years to figure it out. It’s all a beautiful journey, but I feel compelled to share with those of you who truly know in your heart you’re meant to contribute to the world with your own unique genius, how to be successful at it → How to make a big impact & earn big money.

Below I’m sharing with the key secrets that I know are necessary for any “passionpreneur” in the life, health, relationship, business coaching space.

1. Do everything with integrity.  Be the best in your area of mastery. Believe in what you do.

2. Charge what you’re worth, probably a lot more than you think to charge. Let’s face it: You probably have money blocks. Charging less doesn’t do anyone any favors. People value content more when they pay more for it. That’s the truth.

3. Create a system that can run on autopilot and brings in a steady stream of qualified clients.  Webinars do this best and I wish I had started doing them sooner.

4. Bring small groups together to create leverage. Bring your expertise to a small group and coach them together. Group energy is potent. And you stop trading hours for dollars.

5. Get a mentor. Seriously. I’ve made many mistakes in my biz, and the biggest one was not investing big in the beginning by talking to someone further ahead of me every single week.  There are two things that mentors do: give you a step-by-step plan, keep you on track with this plan, help you master your mindset {normally you can’t hear how you’re holding yourself back.}

If you’ve been dabbling with coaching by blogging, creating programs that don’t sell, managing a hundred social media platforms and are only making $1-2K per month, you can learn more on my recent Master Class right here.

If you want to make your biz sustainable, give you MORE freedom {not less} and make at least $10K per month giving your genius to the world, l want you to know it’s possible.

And the beautiful thing is that once you start making MORE income, you have more freedom to DO more in your biz, give more of yourself, influence more people, and even create multiple streams of income for yourself and your family.

The world needs you. Let’s do this.

Love,

Tara

BEST Money I Spent This Month

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 3.22.34 PMBEST money I spent in the last month was to re-join the gym.

I know… it sounds weird, because yes my LIFESTYLE is all about health + wellness, BUT somehow I forgot to sweat intensely over the past YEAR (WTF!) or so.

I don’t know how it happened.

I eat healthy and even go to yoga but it wasn’t enough and I didn’t realize it.

The challenge {if you can call it a challenge} for me can be that I don’t have weight concerns. One of my great blessings in this lifetime is that I never have to worry about losing weight. My body just naturally works that out.

So I guess without that focus, I can easily tell myself that I’m fine.

And what’s occurred to me is::: You don’t know what you’re missing until you find it <—— how true is this in other areas of life too?!

I didn’t realize how much I needed intense workouts {my new fav is boxing} until I was doing it. I feel 100% better than I did a month ago and I didn’t even know then that anything was missing.

Immediately energy started to SHIFT big time. Suddenly co-creating, manifesting, attracting became easier. Frustrations lifted. Trust deepened.

Why? Because I didn’t have pent up energy to give to worries.

I was talking with one of my team leaders the other day and she was telling me the intense fear and limiting thoughts that were clouding her psyche as she uplevels her biz, a pattern she’s struggled with for years, and I immediately said, “ARE YOU WORKING OUT?!”

It’s quite simple.

Relationships become more harmonious.
Focus is more on point.
Creativity skyrockets.
You have less stress, better sleep, better sex…

Need any more convincing?! wink emoticon

Through movement you activate dormant cells and you literally start to give off a different vibration to the world. Your body begins to relax and HEAL and this is the KEY to bringing in more of what you want in biz & life.

If you’re stuck, frustrated, scared, or worried in any area of your life, THIS is the breakthrough.

I’d love to hear in the comments your fav workout these days {INSPIRE ME}, and if you’ve fallen off the wagon, think about committing to a new goal for this week and state it here in the comments. I’d love to support you, and even hold you accountable!

All love ♡♡♡

Holy Sh*t! The necessity of SALT.

the-cure-for-anything-is-salt-water-tears-sweat-or-the-sea-17Hey love,

I had been working so hard on a project over the last few weeks that I almost forgot about myself.

I forgot about this wild, feminine, emotional WOMAN that lives inside of me. I was sitting linearly at my desk for hours on end. I was on phone call after phone call supporting my leaders and welcoming new people to my team. I was jamming out a new webinar.

I don’t regret it because I got a lot done.

But once I allowed myself to breathe a bit more and move through to another stage in my moon cycle, I cried. I cried and cried.

Not because I was sad. Well, maybe. And maybe even a little scared.

A good scared. Like, I’m busting through blocks and expanding into a bigger vision of myself kind-of-scared.

But what I realized in the release of crying is that it’s SO NECESSARY!!! I was holding so much energy in my hips and heart and it all came gushing out.

I then took myself to the gym and signed up for private training. I haven’t done that kind of working out in years. Boxing, lifting, sweating my ass off.

When that was done, I felt another kind of release. This immense relaxation and exhaustion I hadn’t felt in a long time.

I realized that I need to match my intense work and hustle with intense salt {sweat + tears}.  And then it’s ALL GOOD.

I feel like a woman again. A modern day hippie priestess entrepreneur on a mission to be a millionaire and inspire other women to do the same….so that we can all go out and change the fucking world.

Oh yes.  You with me?

So, if you break down and cry or take alone time as a woman to sweat, please know you are not weak. You are not “not strong enough.” You are not “not cut out for this.”

YOU ARE A WOMAN. And you are SO worthy, capable, and perfect. In fact, the world needs more leaders who are in touch with this intuitive power.

In more exciting news: I became an Auntie!  My brother and his wife birthed their first son on Monday February 15. His name is Sean Patrick and he’s the most beautiful thing EVA – Well, I am a little biased 😍

I’m headed to New York & Connecticut this weekend to meet him.  I’m also going to be there supporting my team. If you’re in the area and want an invite to my local events please just hit reply and let me know!

Inspiring you to sweat,

Tara

P.S.  Did you get a chance to check out my new 30 minute webinar on how you can create residual income? Sign up here: http://bit.ly/1Qekbkx

If You Stopped Working Right Now, What Would Happen?

I just got back from a Leadership Retreat where we talked a lot about financial freedom + residual income AND I’m fired up!

If you’re not working, you’re not worth it.

I grew up with this in my bones. We’re a “hard worker” culture in my family – so much so that when I’m earning millions, I wonder if I’ll really be able to settle into that.

Did you know that 98% of retirees today are dependent on social security, family, charities….?

They worked 40 years + for someone else’s dream, most likely, and 75% of people aged 50+ have less than $5000 in the bank.

Can you imagine the kind of stress on your body + health that causes? I mean, financial worries decline health in anyone, and as you age, it will affect you more.

People work hard at a “job” for 40+ years so they can one day enjoy the “golden years” and when they get there they need to still work, or they spend the money they have saved on getting their health back.

This paradigm has to change. It is changing. And it will continue to change.

Let me clarify something I needed to learn becoming an “entrepreneur” > being a business owner is different than being self-employed.

Being self-employed, you work 20+ hours a day (ha! feels like it), and the money stops coming in when you stop working. After being employed in a regular job, I began here and it sucked.  Even though I built a six figure coaching biz, I still had moments of feast or famine.

On the other hand, being a business owner means that you’ve set up streams of income that work for you when you’re not working.

Being an investor, better still, means you’ve created assets that create residual income —> This is how the 2% of the wealthy are wealthy. Their residual income from assets covers their expenses.

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.12.56 AM
SO, what if you could create in 4 years what most people traditionally have done in 40? Would you do it?

You know, the funny thing is, most people won’t.

Because they believe deep down that working hard is just the way that it is.

Because they can’t see the vision —> because first, it requires an outlay of time, energy, and money. And you don’t get a lot in return in the beginning.

It’s so easy to give up on something like that. We are an immediate gratification culture.

Day after day I see awesome purpose based entrepreneurs that have big aligned visions with their soul. They commit to serving others and they are dead broke. Heck, that’s been me.

And when they are offered an opportunity to create residual income – i.e. Put your head down for 2, 3 or 4 years and create assets that pay you forever – They still say no. They choose to trade hours for dollars, spin their wheels creating another program to try to fill, or hope for a big investor for their “baby”.

Don’t get me wrong, I love these “babies”. They are SO needed on our planet. But, seriously, what good are you to the world if you worry every month about paying bills and getting out of debt?

Are you truly free?

Just for a moment, imagine the immense creative nature that is YOU that the world will experience when you are truly FREE!

Connect for a second with the FREEDOM + OPTIONS that money {RESIDUAL MONEY} gives you to go out and live an even higher destiny in the world.

Let me ask you this: If you stopped working right now, by choice or by accident, would income keep flowing into your bank account?

I needed to learn this lesson the hard way.

It’s my big passion in 2016 to connect women to this vision so that they will make the choice today that will put them in an entirely different prosperity bracket a year from now – and not from money that will come in and go out in a flash from a new program/ retreat / workshop – money that’s an asset that will grow and grow for a lifetime.

I envision a world with more women millionaires! Why? because the world needs more empowered intuition, connection, reverence, radical truth, and consciousness.

Are you destined to be one of these women?

To learn how I’m creating assets that will provide residual income for the rest of my life, check out this biz opportunity document I’ve created.

If you’re ready to get started, let me know here.

Love,

Tara

P.S. I’m launching a new webinar this week that will share my story of how I’m adding a six figure residual income stream to my biz WHILE empowering more women and making an even bigger impact than I could’ve alone AND how you can too. Stay tuned! ♡♡♡

Why You Need To Quit Wanting To Be Of Service

Motivational-Monday-figure-out-your-purposeYour purpose here on earth is JOY. Some of us get so caught up in how we can serve, what’s our purpose, on and on we go, and what we fail to realize is that our service to the world emerges from our deepest joy.

In the past, I’ve gotten so caught up in making my life meaningful. In fact, most new-age thought leaders are going to tell you to “be of service”. Heck, I’ve said it, and ultimately I believe it.

Hang with me for a moment.

Don’t get me wrong, being of service is a noble goal. To be of service to the world. To live a life of meaning. To make your life about others.

I want to offer, though, that connecting to your deepest joy…

When you feel that chilling magic pierce through your body.

When time passes and you didn’t even realize it.

When you express yourself so authentically that people either say LOVE or HATE.

When you could never tire, or even wouldn’t care if you got paid, to do that thing.

…that’s a clue. That’s your zone. The way you’re here to revolutionize things.

It’s YOUR zone of genius, that no one else on the planet can do like you.

As Liz Gilbert says, “You are not required to save the world with your creativity. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. The rest will take care of itself.”

Ultimately your life will be of service – in a creative, soul-connecting, heart stirring kind of way when you access your heart’s deepest joy and let your life be an expression of that.

When your work is genuine and real and authentic, IT will serve – in the highest way possible.

It will uplift the collective consciousness.

It will serve humanity’s evolution.

You’re not doing anyone any favors by holding the heavy intent of helping others IF that work doesn’t LIGHT you the fuck up.

People will feel that heavy martyrdom and you will actually have the opposite effect.

Make your intent to access YOU and your creative magic. Imagine if your work was your greatest pleasure. Imagine the kind of vibrations you put out into the world. Imagine the level of inspiration you’d impart on others.

Now that, love, is your sole (soul) purpose.

Be bold. Be big. Be fiercely YOU.

Love,

Tara

P.S. Leave me a comment below and tell me 1) Have you been held back by this heavy notion of purpose and service? Do you agree that your greatest joy and passion will in turn be your gift to the world?
