Keys to Effective Goal Setting

Effective goal setting happens when we choose goals that we believe we can truly achieve. We keep those goals in front of us, never losing sight of where we want to go in life. The groundwork for effective goal setting starts with these crucial components.

Indi and the Tennis Ball

The other day on Good Morning America they were talking about how people so closely resemble their dogs... not in looks, but in personality. Well, many of you have seen pictures of my dog Indi, but for those who HAVENT seen her - she is a 3 pound chihuahua that is about the color of dirty dishwater! So it got me thinking... how are Indi and I alike... might GMA be on to something?

And this is MY why…

I reflected back through the thousands of hours I have spent over the last 7 years Coaching and Inspiring women to achieve their goals. I thought of the single moms who just wanted more time with their kids, the college students with student loans leering above their heads, the empty-nesters looking for a new passion, the Corporate burnouts who wanted something more fulfilling, the newlyweds wanting to buy a new home... No matter the situation, the circumstance, or the individual, it all boiled down to one thing. They wanted FREEDOM.

A Lesson From Around The World

Tonight I went to our "Wednesday Night Supper" at church. I normally do not go on Wednesday nights, but tonight something just told me that tonight I needed to go. I am glad I did - I learned an incredible lesson.

Are you “FLYING” Through Life?

I remember stories my other grandfather used to tell of his travels as a Pilot for the US Air Force. He taught me a lot about how a plane flies, and how a "flight plan" is determined and so on. It wasn't until years later that I would reflect on his stories in my memories of him that I started to realize how much flying a plane is like going through life.

Go ‘All In’ in In Your Direct Sales Business

I am so excited to finally announce our theme for the New Year. Each year Party Plan Divas chooses a "theme" for the year to help keep us focused and motivated. This year I took a tip from Mike, my loving beau, who is an avid poker player. His meaning behind going "All In" on the poker table made me think so much of our industry. You may not always have the "perfect hand" or "pocket Aces" - but you believe you have a winning hand, and with persistence and confidence, you may just get lucky "on the River."

Are You Walking The Walk – Direct Sales Leadership

As a Leader it is your job to train your team, show them "the ropes" coach them what to do, and more importantly what NOT to do. You teach a new Consultant about Branding, about Gardening, about the importance of Hostess Coaching and how to not "leave money on the table" by implementing a good solid Customer Care Program. You teach her how to Book Parties from Scratch and how to Upsell at a party. You teach her how to BE a Party Plan Diva. What have you been preaching and teaching... but not doing yourself?
