Call reluctance...it's a problem that manifests itself for even the best of salespeople. It's that sinking feeling you get in the pit of your stomach just before you call on a prospect or walk into a business to promote yourself and what you're doing (or maybe promote someone else, and what they're doing)...If it gets the best of you, it can take you off your best game, or even prevent you from making the call! It's a hugely challenging issue, and one that, if not addressed, can torpedo…Continue

Over several years of promoting a life coaching program for folks - it never ceased to amaze me how often people would call in and be wicked excited about our organization (I mean to the point that I thought they were going to jump through the phone and try to soak in every piece of what we were doing!) Only to completely deflate when money entered the conversation, and this wasn't a high priced program! (ranged from $10-300, depending on level...). But that didn't matter - far too often,…Continue

I had an interesting question posed to me to the other day.
"Ms. Susan, is it possible to be "in love" with God? Shouldn't you just say you love God? I mean, isn't being "in love" with someone reserved for your spouse?"
I've never thought about this…Continue
Most of us probably saw the hyped-up report about how Americans "waste money" and "endanger their health" by taking multivitamins and supplements. That has to be one of the least informed and more dangerous reports I've heard out of mainstream doctors. With a balanced diet, we get…Continue
As some of you know, Dan holds several live events at the Sanctuary each year. The next event is Innovate (3/20). If you have never attended one of these before, this is a fantastic chance to not only get to be up close and personal Dan and the other speakers, but also to connect with like-minded folks just like you who are looking to excel their lives forward.

Guess this is one of those jumps.
Completing my novel "B.I.C. Cartel," about some folks who keep forgetting about their special gifts and/or letting the dysfunction of life supersede them.
Anyway, Part III went live on Amazon. In the process of completing the final (full) version for a March 10 launch date.
Down the road - maybe toward the end of March? - will have a deluxe version of this work, with some info on how to get an accountability group…Continue

There is a vicious killer that is destroying marriages one by one. It sneaks into home; hides in mobile devices and home computer. It hides between the pews in churches. No one who comes in contact…Continue

Hey all -
Quick question - I'm working on coming up with a name for a blog/podcast page I'll be putting up around Social Entrepreneurs - one of the names I really like 'changepreneur' is fairly widely used, but is technically trademarked by this organization: http://silverspeaks.com/blogs/2011/04/
Or at least... she's put the TM sign on her website.
Anyone had any experience with this? I wouldn't be surprised if…Continue

I was on an online webinar last night, and the leader brought up an interesting point that I think I had always kind of known, but never fully articulated or admitted: we singles may tend to be less productive because we feel less pressure to produce.
I hadn't fully thought about it until just then, but I think it's true... to be fair, I don't have much to compare it to - I don't yet have a family, so I don't yet know what those pressures are like, but what I do know is that…Continue
As some of you may know, my primary focus in life is empowering social entrepreneurs. I study this at a university, but mainly am interested in how 'real' people and entrepreneurs are living this idea out every day.
That being said, it's become clear to me that there's not really an agreed upon idea out there of what Social Entrepreneurship really means - I don't think that's necessarily a problem, it can…

Well I finally did it. I did my first paid speaking event today and I feel it went pretty well. I'd written a blog a few weeks ago titled Hourly, by the job, or pay me what it's worth. In a nutshell I wasn't comfortable naming a price so I left it up to the customer. He came back with a figure of $70/ hr. I have to admit I would have never come up with that number. He based it on what he's paid other consultants. The early feedback is they want me to come back for 2…Continue
Over the past several years, I have been sick. Constantly ill, whether it's the "stomach bug", a cold, and various other afflictions when the weather was cold. After last winter when I had no less than six instances of the stomach bug, I vowed to not let this happen again. My search led me all over, trying new things and supplements to improve my immune…Continue

Self-publishing is at times a long, lonely road. There are countless decisions that you must make as a self-publishing author. Who will edit your book? Do you even need an editor? How will you publish your book—print, Kindle, iBookstore, Nook, a combination? Do you need a typesetter for the ebook? How do you market your book? When does marketing begin?
In the face of…Continue

A few months ago, I got a package from a friend and mentor. In it was a very nice note and a copy of Michael Hyatt`s fabulous book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. The book…Continue
I remember when I was pregnant with my oldest son 30 years ago. My husband would make me drink huge glasses of skim milk mixed with Carnation Instant Breakfast powder. He wanted to be sure I got enough calcium for both of us and figured the chocolate powder would just make it that much easier to get me, a non-milk…Continue
Please don’t let this post get out to the CIA, FBI or the KWDRS. (If you have to ask about that last one, you’re better off not knowing!) I have been doing some digging into your life and have uncovered something you may want to know.
