Alyson Stanfield: Are You an Artist Who’s Being too Frugal?

alyson

This is a guest post by Alyson Stanfield, from artbizblog.com. I’ve been following her for years, and she always has great things to say. Here we go:

“I’ll just come right out and say it: I am tired of watching artists and arts organizations live on leftover scraps.

In my 23 years of working with fine art, I have witnessed repeatedly how frugal the arts are. Not to the patrons with the big bank accounts, but to the artists, without whom their passionate interest would not exist.

Frugal isn’t bad by itself. In fact, frugal can be good. But frugal becomes detrimental when it feeds the idea that we are not worthy of more.

Coaches: 5-Step Love-Works Discovery Session Sign-up System

ATL-5-STEPThe real reason you do Discovery Sessions….

I was asked to help someone who was having trouble with the money part of signing people up after her Discovery Sessions. I bet no one has ever taught you these things.

You go into Discovery Sessions thinking you’ll help the client, show her how good you are, give your best…but that’s not what a Discovery Session is all about!

I hear coaches say, “I get to the end of delivering a great Discovery Session and my clients-to-be ask about working more with me … and I don’t know what to say, and they don’t sign up!”

This will help you.

I’m going to show you how to do the Discovery Session correctly – I bet NO one taught you these 5 Steps the way I do! Yep, you probably already have your own style.

But if it ends up with people not signing up, I guess there’s still something to find out, isn’t there!

An unusual training

1. Go HERE for the unusual Discovery Session training that will change everything for you.

If you truly want to make more money helping people and making a difference, you need more clients! This will help you attract and sign them up.

Every person I’ve taught this to has told me it works like a dream! Good!

In the 60-minute audio (with accompanying 3-Part Cheat Sheet that includes my Exclusive Client Signup Script), I reveal to you the 5 highly critical elements you absolutely must include when you do a new-client inquiry, a strategy session or discovery session.

Do you think you do good Discovery Sessions … but at the end you don’t know what you’re doing? And you flub the money conversation? Go HERE for the unusual Discovery Session training that will change everything for you.

How to set your fees

2. Here’s where to learn how to set up your services and your fees so your Discovery people will ask YOU about your programs and packages, and you will feel totally comfortable talking about them.

What would it be like to feel really great about your fees – so great you don’t mind talking about them?!?

Dr. Joann Dahlkoetter, Olympic Peak Performance Coach

 

I was very honored last week to interview Dr. JoAnn Dahlkoetter, Olympic Edge peak performance Coach.

Dr. Joann provides performance psychology, corporate training, and Performing Edge Coach Certification programs for CEOs, coaches, sports parents and athletes to help them reach their highest potential in sports, business and life.

When I spoke with Dr. Joann last week, she had just gotten off the phone with an invitation to coach Olympic athletes at the Sports Training Facility for the next Games in London. What an honor!

In our conversation, I got her to tell us about what helped her to go from starting at 19th place to come in a triumphant 2nd in one of the most brutal races of all – the Hawaii Ironman Triathalon.

She also shares with us how she developed her 3-Ps program afterwards from her extreme experience there.

Some of what else she shows us:
1. What you can do to create consistent peak performance in your life
2. How to use magnets to pull success towards yourself (and let IT do the work for you!);
3. And how to have Olympic Thinking on a steady basis, that helps you win whatever game you play in life and business.

Dr. JoAnn is the CEO of Performing Edge Coaching International Association, a global resource and Certification Training Program for Coaches. If I weren’t already a coach, I’d want this certification myself! In case you want to get certified as a Performing Edge Coach, you can either click here or on the banner under this post.

Carol Tuttle: Energy Expert Millionaire

Carol Tuttle started out with an EFT practice, marketing her services, books and products online. Now she helps people dress according to and aligned with their essential energy – it’s pretty cool.

I have to admit that when I first called her to see if she’d do an interview with me for my EFT-Biz-Success program I was really nervous.

I honestly thought she’d have the brusk, impatient manner of the typical corporate jerk who has made a lot of money and ‘who the hell are you.’

Shows you what I believed about people who were self-made millionaires! Had to tap on that one – ! I had wanted to interview her because I knew she had been highly financially successful as an EFT practitioner and wanted to hear how she did that.

I was so surprised to hear her casual, very sincere manner come radiating through the phone lines – when we hung up, I actually felt lifted up by her ability to embrace and radiate simplicity and sweetness!

Perhaps you’ll be as surprised as I was to hear how she places her number one value: connection with her spiritual beliefs – absolutely first, over everything else – and how she works with that to simplify and make her life and business richly rewarding. If you are an energy practitioner, this interview is especially for you.

I wanted to specifically find out how she made so much money with her EFT practice – and she lays it out clearly as to what made her so successful.

If you’ve wondered how to hold onto your spiritual values while you operate in the mundane world, listen carefully to how Carol does it – every day – aligning her business and activities with those values, adamantly sticking to her connection. You can do this, too!

Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler: the Train Your Brain Expert

I just had a powerful talk with a hot brain scientist: brain expert Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler of http://HotBrainz.com, who has created practical ways to amp up your brain power.

She and her discoveries about the brain are underline-ably awesome.

If you want to know how to reach higher states of consciousness ON PURPOSE, you’ll want to listen in to my interview with her.

She explains the important brain wave states, and why, if you cannot get through what she calls the Schumann Resonance, your brain remains ordinary and dreamless (ew!); and how, if you can get through that gateway, you can develop deliberate higher states of consciousness, and even an enlightened mind (yay!)

Know what else? That same Schumann Resonance is the same frequency as…get this…the earth’s! Don’t think we’re connected? Wrong! (CLICK HERE to listen to this powerful show now!)

IS THE BRAIN MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK?

Dr. Jill showed how the brain is connected to every single cell in the Read More

Paul & Layne Cutright: Conscious Relationship Experts

cutright

I am so happy to be able to bring to you one of the most delightful couples I’ve ever met: relationship Experts Paul and Layne Cutright.

Do you have a conscious purpose underlying your relationships?

Paul and Layne do, and they have been cultivating and nourishing it for over thirty years.

When they first met, there was one of those lightning strike moments we all read about but rarely experience – they knew then they were in for something different. And indeed, it certainly has been.

You’ll be fascinated to hear what they have made out of their commitment, how they purposely function through a gateway of loving experimentation and curiosity, and how many people they have helped over the years because of their own love for one another.

Transparency to the max

One of the things I love best about them is their willingness to be transparent, share from the heart, and do it with humor.

cutright-bkYou’ll hear how they discovered their own ‘spiritual arrogance’ (that would be hard for anyone to admit!), how they had a deep ‘Undoing’ that lasted almost three years and that completely changed their lives, and how they got through all that to swing up again into a greater arena of service.

IDareYouRadio.comClick HERE or on the Daring Dreamers Radio Logo to the left to get to the interview.

You can get their wonderful, eye-opening book here: You’re Never Upset for the Reason You Think, 2nd Edition

AND – as a special gift to you Daring Dreamers who listen in to the Show, Paul and Layne have made it possible to get one of their most valuable courses – their excellent Heart-to-Heart Communication Program – for 50% savings! Thanks, Paul and Layne!

Here’s a tip from Straight from the Heart:

“Develop the ability, or at least the willingness, to see beyond others’ fears and limitations into their very heart of hearts.

“Regardless of the hardships or abuses that anyone has suffered, there is an untouched purity of spirit that may be brought forth simply by recognizing and acknowledging it.”

Layne and Paul Cutright
from their book, ‘Straight From the Heart’

I just love that. It makes me think of the space I like to be in when I’m doing a session with someone – empty of judgement, empty of agenda, guiding that still, powerful voice to come out from under all the layers of Other that have been piled on over the years.

It’s such an incredible experience when that happens! Suddenly all the anxiety, fear, anger, grief or sadness completely drains out of thm and this enormous nimbus of light envelops their body and the sun has reclaimed its residence in their hearts. It’s just lovely.

Angela Treat Lyon: Interviewed on Success with Kate Radio Show

ATL-BEEDERS

Today the tables are turned!

I was interviewed by Success Coach Kate Beeders on her Success with Kate Radio Show this weekend. Find Kate here: successcoachingwithKate.com.

It was such fun – Kate’s a good interviewer. You’ll hear all about passion, creativity…how I first decided never to be bored and always be as passionate and alive as possible…and my renegade EFT ideas that say don’t neutralize that energy!

I also fill you in on why I believe my tapping books are the best around; my how-to-get-out-of-being-broke money books, and lots more.

HERE’s where to get Part One, and HERE’s where to get Part 2.

 

Do You Have Great, Unshakable Support for Your Life?

ocean-of-love

One of the most precious things that can help make your life as great as you wish it to be is an unshakable support system.

Whether that consists of your family, friends, co-workers, business team or a great coach, that support is essential.

These are the people (or person) to whom you can go and feel safe, and by whom you feel loved and uplifted.

With them, you can open your heart, let your hurts fall out on the floor for examination and healing, without any judgement or criticisms or you-should-haves.

They stand by you

They love and support you with massive amounts of love as you be with that pile of scary stuff, deal with it, and decide what to do next.

They stand by you as you go through and transform your circumstances, attitudes, thoughts, or situations so you end up feeling good, so you feel open and delighted again.

hugYou know for certain that they have the uplifting energy and sweet, unbiased love and support that only someone who believes in you can give you.

You know for sure that, even if they don’t have any solutions for your problem, any new perspective through which to look, they still love you without judgement. And that they will be with you until and as you choose something new, something that does work for you.

You also know that, even if you don’t don’t like what they have to say, they will tell you the truth of their own experience; they will give you their opinion and perspective; and they will tell you how they feel.

And you know that they will never insist that you do anything their way–that yes, they’ll have their say, but they know that you need to make your own decisions that may even be in direct opposition to what they say or would do, themselves.

To have a person in your life
who will be this for you is mighty precious.

It’s a gift beyond measure. It’s like having a rock to lie down on in the sun and breathe in new light and life. It’s strength where there seemed, before, to be none. It’s a line to life when life itself seems impossible. It’s a mirror for the depth of your own power, the power that takes you where ever you want to go.

These are the kind of people who ask you what you’d like to get out of this situation, rather than joining you in blame, shame, resentment or pity parties. You’ve found a gem. What a gift!

Do you have a person like that?

If not, I invite you to become one, yourself, to at least one person.

You’ll find out what it’s like, to be that generous, that kind, that truthful. It will grow you faster than you can even begin to imagine. And one day you’ll see that you’ve had people like this in your life the whole time–you just never knew it. You just never recognized them.

If you do you have people in your life who love you and support you, who make you feel safe and like you can do anything you set your mind to, then send them love and gratitude, because they need it, too!

I send you an ocean of love.

 

What’s Holding You Back from Living Your Deepest Dreams?

out-on-a-limb

Why not go out on a limb? That’s where all the fruit is.
–Will Rogers

In this day and age where it seems that everything hangs in suspense–a new US president, a supposedly failing economy, stocks tanking–why not be outrageous and actually go for your dreams?

What’s holding you back?

What would happen if you actually (gasp!) DID create the dream you have deep in your heart? What if, instead of doing what you think you’re supposed to do, you act from your Deep Heart and step towards your Dream?

OMIGOD–you might be happy! You might achieve success and have more money! You might be able to help even more people than you serve right now! Can you handle it? What will you do with all that money and success and new space? Who will you be? How will you behave? Good questions–might want to ponder on that so you can actually make it come true!

Here’s the important thing

It’s not about “how can I survive” these days at all. Because these days will continue whether you make it or not, and days will continue to go up and down in relative ‘goodness’ and ‘badness’ no matter what you or I or the lampost do.

It’s about keeping your focus
on your inner directive.

That Singular Reason you do what you do, be who you are. Keep your eye on that, keep your heart open and your actions aligned with that.

Do that, always asking yourself, ‘what is one small thing I can do to keep creating my dream?” Even if only taking a little bitty breath is all you can do right now. More space will open for you as you continue to breathe, re-connect, breathe, take action, and so on.

I send you love, support and strength!
