Is it just me or have you noticed that with all the hype on the interwebs about the importance of standing out and claiming your uniqueness; there’s still pressure to do what the industry influencers (aka cool kids) are doing?   There’s no one formula that works for everyone and when you do what everyone is doing, you become basic--which is a shame because you're truly brilliant. Below I'll share 3 ways that you can eliminate the basic and enhance your brilliance.   It’s strange to me that the...

  When you're talented and know your stuff -- it's pretty easy to deliver your genius, magic thing to your customers via services, courses and/or products. Why is it pretty simple? Because your life experiences have helped you to discern how you best serve others.   Through the miniature disasters, major mishaps, and miraculous milestones; you've continued to hone your craft (and figure out what your people struggle with) so that inevitably, your brilliance shines through in the value that you bring to others.   Does that...

Let's talk about happiness. The truth is that most people move through their lives in an unhappy funk because they are functioning in total reaction mode. Are you one of them? Completely unaware of the choices that you have to shift the way you feel in any given moment? Allowing your emotions and outlook on life to be dictated by whatever annoyance or crisis that is happening at any given moment in your day? Believing deep down that true happiness is meant for other...

SCENARIO: You say your greetings to the friendly faces at the registration table; pick up your name badge; and immediately make a beeline to the refreshments area to get yourself something to sip on. Having a glass to hold in your hand keeps you from fidgeting and somehow alleviates the slight feeling of awkwardness. From the refreshments area, you're able to assess the types of people in the room and determine who you will most likely be talking with later. "So, what do you do?"...

Ever heard of an Entre-terrestrial? They are all around us. Entre-terrestrials are the other-wordly entrepreneurs and public figures that we admire but can never seem to reach. Have you seen one lately?  They are majestic, extremely likeable, and possess the ability to produce an unlimited supply of mind-shifting content and amazing products. Tell the truth.  When you identify an Entre-terrestrial, do you feel that no matter how hard you might try, you will never be as productive, successful, or fearless as they are because IT SEEMS AS IF THEY ARE FROM A...

Ever wonder how I came up with my business name? I named my business Striking Statements because I wanted something that stood out to people who want to stand out. We make statements all the time about who we are by the way we do our hair, adorn our bodies, and talk. We also make statements through the people we choose to be  friends with, where we like to dine, shop, or travel. But this is only the beginning. Let's not stop there...

Do you want people to share more of your content? The truth is, your audience isn’t going to share your message unless they:   A.) Understand it. AND  B.) Know and trust you enough to invest a few extra clicks and finger swipes of their time. I’ll first dissect what it means to have your audience know and trust you. A lot of people shy away from sharing information about themselves to their audiences because they don’t want to be judged or rejected....

The story behind my purpose will give you a better understanding of who I am and why I've chosen Striking Statements as the vessel through which I share my gift. The experiences, the pain, and the person that led me to my purpose all pertains to you. The date was May 30th 2008. The day my son was born at home in a warm tub surrounded by my two midwives and boyfriend while my 5-year old daughter slept downstairs. What a peaceful birth...

Is there a mismatch between how you want your business to be perceived and the messages you are actually giving? When you create content that doesn't generate much interest or feedback, you wonder if you're writing the right way. This is one of the biggest issues that my clients have - next to actually being able to find the right words to use in the first place. To move closer to your solution, you have to pinpoint the kinds of information your audience has been most receptive and...

Last month Fergie came out with a new video called, M.I.L.F.  which stands for “Moms I’d Like to Follow” and it is full of beautiful famous moms like herself who are handling their high profile celebrity statuses, being mamas, and leveraging their influence on social media to make money and a difference. With the same thought in mind I’d like to talk about Motives that Influence Likes and Follows which is my own version of the acronym M.I.L.F. What gets people...
