Dreams, hopes, desires, passion, ambition and goals…

These are the things that make you into the person you are today and the person you most want to be. Goals and ambitions undoubtedly play a crucial rule in your success. However, there’s more to this than meets the eye.

Strategy, smarts, brains…everything falls flat if you don’t work on the KEY element.

And that’s mindset.

Yes! I just said that. And if you’ve been in the entrepreneurial space for a while now, you must be familiar with this concept.

You hear experts talking about “work on your mindset”, “pesky little limiting beliefs”, “self-sabotage” and stuff like that. The thing is, you keep hearing all this yet you keep ignoring it.

When you think about building a 6-figure business, you roll up your sleeves and sit down to create a game plan. You come up with a strategy, all the resources and set your goals. You then start shooting for stars – one after another, but end up falling flat on your face.


You know why?

Because no matter how bad you WANTED it to happen, you never BELIEVED it.

Somewhere at the back of your head, you kept thinking about all the things that could possibly go wrong, all the reasons why it won’t happen or explanations that your offer is not good enough.

So it goes without saying that mindset work is as important as strategy, systems or smarts.

Our focus of the day?

Developing a 6-figure success mindset so you can kick self-sabotage to the curb every time it creeps in while UP LEVELING BIG TIME! 

I want you to write a letter of gratitude and date it December 2018. Sit down, relax, and let your thoughts flow. What have you achieved? How far have you come? What are the things that you are thankful for?

Don’t be judgmental or picky. Let your heart & desires flow. You don’t necessarily have to already BE there, but claim that space anyway because it’s yours for the taking. Make a habit of reading this letter first thing in the morning so you can stand in your power even when you don’t feel like it.

Do the homework above and once you complete your Day 5 challenge (or if you have any questions), post it in She’s Building Her Empire Community with the hashtag #Plan2Profit #Day5 and let’s embark on a beautiful journey to your dreams.

Not sure what I mean?  Don’t worry.  Join me live today  and I will give you a few examples.  I’m going to end this challenge with a bang, so would love for you to join me today at Noon CST for a Facebook Live on my business page and let’s all celebrate our dreams, goals and empower each other.


Much Love,


P.S. I’ve got a riveting surprise for all of you that’s going to hit your inbox later today. Keep your eyes peeled!  Or if you are like me and can’t wait, join me LIVE for a sneak peak.

OH MY WORD! I am so pumped for today! Yesterday, it was so heart-warming to see you being truly vulnerable, admitting your weaknesses and embracing your strengths. I hope you guys are feeling as fired up as I am to create an unforgettable year ahead.

Our focus of the day: 90 Day Plan: Creating a rock solid game plan and mapping out your first quarter so you can effortlessly ace your goals.

You are going to map out 12 weeks starting January 1st, 2018.

That gives you approximately 12 goals to keep you on track.

If you’re overwhelmed, that’s okay! Being passionate and creative entrepreneurs, there are always one million and one ideas bombarding our minds, BUT when it comes to implementing them… nothing makes sense.

That’s why I urge you to take 30 minutes or an hour out and give it your best, ask your partner to jump in or a friend to help you brainstorm.

Post your answers (or if you have any questions) with the hashtag #Plan2Profit #Day4 and let’s crush your goals the right way- one step at a time.

Excited to see what your first quarter goals are!

I would love you joining me live in my facebook business page @12 p.m. Central and let us digest these goals more.

Wow! I can’t believe it! We’re well on our way to Day 3 and I am so proud to see all the amazing work you’ve put in over the last two days. I commend you for being committed and determined to take your life and business to the next level in the coming year.

Our focus of the day: YOU!

Today, I’m going to share a strategy with you that is an integral part of my High-Performance Coaching and has helped me and my clients immensely over the years. It tells you where you truly stand and what you need to do to fill the gap to get where you want to be.



What are your business strengths? (What makes your business unique?)

What are your personal strengths? (What personal skills do you have that assist you in business?)



What are your business weaknesses? (Where can you improve your business?)

What are your personal weaknesses? (What personal limitations are keeping you from giving 100% to your business?)



What new opportunities do you see that will help you grow your business? (Partnerships, Affiliates, Collaborations, Podcasting, Guest Blogging, Tele-Summit, etc.)



What are the threats to your business? (These can be personal i.e. time, energy, money or business i.e. rival coming in strong, consistency, changing business landscape)

Post your answers (or if you have any questions) with the hashtag #Plan2Profit #Day3 and find out what strengths and weaknesses your peers possess and how you can support each other as a community.

I'm going live today on @12 p.m. central. Don't forget to jump on.

Yesterday we talked about shaping your vision, getting clear about your truest desires and owning them by writing powerful statements of intention. WOW! That was fun.

And today, our focus is: Phase it Up - Breaking your BIG vision into tasty chunks (a.k.a. achievable phases) so you can finally live the life of your dreams.

Today, we will break down your dream into phases. It can be 3, 5 or 7 phases just so you can easily achieve each phase and move one step closer to your dream.

Let me give you an example: Your dream is to have an internationally renowned business that is impacting not hundreds or thousands but millions of lives.

This is how you’ll map out your 2018.

[ASSUMED] VISION FOR 2018: Be a bestselling author and generate $100K in revenue.


First Quarter

Phase 1 – Map your book idea and hire help (either a coach or an accountability buddy)

Phase 2 – Begin writing the book alongside making a visibility plan for audience building


Second Quarter

Phase 3 – Start list building and begin establishing your expert authority as you write the book

Phase 4 – Finish the first draft and either submit to a Publishing Agency or run it by an editor


Third Quarter

Phase 5 – Draw up your marketing plan and connect with a publicist for book signing and talks

Phase 6 – Give your book the finishing touches and finalize the draft


Fourth Quarter

Phase 7 – Pre-Sell your book and ramp up the hype on your network (email, social media, local)

Phase 8 – Launch and take on the world.

Now you see, the vision may have seemed quite big (and clichéd), but when backed with a plan, it is realistic and achievable.

Your turn: Think about your vision for 2018 and then break it down into phases. Few key factors you need to keep in mind are:

  • Clarity (You may need it if you are starting out)
  • Marketing & Audience Building
  • Filling in the knowledge gap
  • Accountability & Support
  • Sales Mastery

Focus of the day: Shaping Your Vision - Shaping a vision, getting clear as day about your truest desires and conquering your dreams, so you can live a hand-crafted life.

How do you dream big when the circumstances tell a completely different story? Where does one even begin to dream big, what comes first, second and third? What is a dream anyway, isn’t it something that usually happens in fiction and only a select few people ever get to achieve theirs?

Today we’re talking about…

  • Your impact on the world and how you want to be remembered.
  • What do you stand for?
  • How can you shine your light brighter?
  • What legacy do you want to leave for your kids?

So, write down the first thing that comes to your mind and complete the following sentences:

I am…

I will…

I help...

I prefer...

I would bring...

Post your answers with the hashtag #Plan2Profit #Day1 and get feedback, accountability and possibly win an exciting prize! Yes, the prize wheel is coming out soon!  ;-)
