What makes you different from other “success coaches”?
Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other “business coach-y” things, you have me as a confidence and cash flow expert and consultant. I work on the inner and outer principals for success and look at your business and your sales results from an organic and spiritual perspective. What that means to you is that you get a wise-sage-meets-kick-butt authentic sales and marketing coach. I’m also very spiritual and I don’t pretend to hide it wither. Because I’m not delicate, you’ll always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from me.
I’m concerned with how to get your cash flow rolling in FAST – to help you STOP wasting time and leaking your energy and your power where it doesn’t belong and get you focused on doing the CASH generating activities sooner. I don’t beat around bushes or waste time. You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!).
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
Confidence and Cash flow workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead se rious about breaking out of their rut, breaking through resistance, making more money and ending what I call “the spinning anxiety syndrome” – it means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I should be doing WAY better than this in my business by now!” They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to gaining more confidence, visibility, and finally attracting more clients so you can make more money and create the business and lifestyle of your dreams. That’s what I call FREEDOM.
Being a high achieving go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with other high achieving go-getters, people who are committed to their success no matter what who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to get clients. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to succeed in your business. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: confidence and cash flow, consistently and in record time.
For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) The Confidence & Cash flow programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:
- Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your Confidence & Cash flow assignments and the BIG picture. Once you start seeing the clients come in regularly as a result of our work, you can then start reducing the hours you work at that other job and focus on your own practice.
- Sign up for the free Confidence & Cash flow Success Pack over email (Click here to subscribe.) The free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
- Make a point to read the “Breakthrough to Success” weekly tip in my ezine. The tips are sent over week and will give you LOTS to think about.
Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.) Another types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
What exactly is The Confidence & Cash flow™ system and what does it include?
Sky rocketing your confidence and your cash flow begins with understanding your true value, where your power really comes from, how to manifest what you want (including more money), creating powerful intentions that get you results as well as the outer pieces to powerfully get the word out about your business. Here’s what the System gets you to do:
1. Set Your Intentions
We examine where you are in your business and get CRYSTAL clear about your intentions, what you want to experience in your personal life and business. Before you can manifest what you want you have to KNOW what you want. You’ll learn the difference between setting goals and intentions, the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make when trying to apply the law of attraction to their business and pave the way for exciting opportunities, synchronicities and cash flow to find you.
2. Release Your Inner Resistance
Mostly you might already know what you need to be doing but yet are still struggling in procrastination, feeling stuck ad spinning in circles. You’ll be learning proven techniques for breaking through your inner resistance, self doubt, fear, anxiety and all of that “stuff” that keep you playing small so that you can begin taking profitable action in your business.
3. Create Your Ideal Client Profile
Together we’ll find out exactly who your ideal clients are. Who you love working with, who would get the best results from working with you, and we’ll really drill down to what kinds of personality traits, income levels, and specifics of your ideal clients so you can easily begin attracting them on an inner level and begin identifying where they hang out and how to engage them in large numbers so you save time.
4. Engage Your Ideal Clients
We’ll spend considerable time creating your savvy marketing pieces like your irresistible marketing message, your BIG WHY story and all of your copy that positions you as THE expert to help your clients solve specific problems. The key we’ll focus on is the “HOW” to engage your ideal clients to take action, raise their hand in regards to working with you; we’ll accomplish this by creating irresistible calls to action including your 60 second networking speech, your business card copy and website tagline & copy.
5. Package Your Expertise
We’ll look at all of your skills, expertise and knowledge, and we’ll package what you do in a way that your ideal clients will raise their hands right away and say “YES! That’s for me!” We’ll look at pricing and packaging your services and products into juicy offers that will attract the right clients who will gladly pay you more money to help them solve their problems. This is where the cashflow part of the equation becomes really fun!
6. Focus In
We’ll look at what you should be focusing on to move your business forward. What actions you need to be taking each day to leverage your time, effectiveness and client attraction ability so that your business continues to generate cash flow consistently and you can grow your business.
7. Get Out There And Get Visible
Together we’ll devise a marketing plan for how to get out there in a bigger way and begin sharing your message with the world. Now that you’re armed with all of the right knowledge, able to articulate and communicate who you are, whom you serve and what you do, you can now take this out there and begin making offers. Getting out from hiding behind the computer is what generates cash flow for you in a BIG BIG way! Weather it’s creating a signature speech, a teleseminar talk, devising a networking strategy, creating your own workshop, attracting the press, using joint ventures or social media + online marketing we’ll devise a plan that fits your personality and will help you take your business to the next level and cash flow bracket!
8. Master The Art of Closing the Sale
Here I’ll take you step by step through my proven “Authentic Selling” system that works like a charm every time. You’ll begin feeling more confident because you’ll know exactly what to say and how to say it to sell yourself without sounding salesy or pushy. You’ll also learn how to handle objections and exactly what to say to help you create those experiences where people love to buy. You’ll start making more money and sky rocket your cash flow once you master the art of closing the sale.
We’ll focus a lot of our time celebrating wins and creating the new habit of celebrating what’s showing up for you. What you focus on expands and everything you are learning and experiencing is of your creation. Your confidence will sky rocket as you consistently produce results over and over again! Celebrate what shows up so you can pave the way for even more success!
10. Put Systems in Place to Leverage Yourself for Results!
We’ll implement proven systems to put your client attraction on autopilot: you’ll have clients calling you instead of you chasing after them! This allows you to leverage your time and increase productivity. Congratulations!!! Your confidence and cash flow system is in place and you’ll never have to worry about where or how to generate income in your business, ever again! In addition to these 10 categories, you will learn hundreds and hundreds of things to help you manage your business more effectively, make more money, get out of your own way and into profitable action. These are the steps of The Confidence & Cashflow System™ that I’ve created after working with solo- and spiritual-preneurs to help them get ahead.

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar profession. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.
How quickly can I expect results?
That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to go and sky rocket their success in a very short time frame, sometimes even a few weeks while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on how far along you are in business, if you have a website up already, and systems in place to help you leverage yourself.
How can I guarantee myself that I will get more confidence & cash flow, in record time?
Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of The Confidence and Cash Flow System™ have successfully grown their businesses, in much less time than they would have on their own AND have made more money than they’ve made doing what they do.
Will I recover the investment I put into this coaching program?
Yes, a resounding Yes! Many clients are excited to report that they were able to cover their investment often with only one or two new clients. I want you to stop reading for just one moment to ask yourself, “What is a new client worth to me, and what is the average revenue I make from the lifetime of that one client?” Chances are, that amount will more than cover your coaching investment. Most likely, you will make 10 times what you invested in this program in the next year. The information and skills you learn with Confidence and Cash Flow System™ will net you 100 times what you invest in the next 10 to 20 years…I’m just saying…. What you get in my programs (and my coaching) is what I call a series of major breakthroughs! That will move your business faster than you would on your own. Expect to get a lot of these as well as the resources, templates, and systems you’ve been looking for and haven’t found until now. That’s what you’re investing in, results, more revenue, more confidence, more clients, and not just more “information.”
