Marshall Thurber

A Money Map is a powerful tool for taking charge of the financial side of your passion business. It focuses your intention and unleashes creative thinking that has the uncanny effect of attracting people, resources and opportunities. But, getting specific about numbers can be daunting, because it often triggers doubt, fear and negative chatter. Learn a simple 7-step process that will transform your business vision into a financial blueprint for a thriving business, and helps you claim your true power with money. To register click here.

Women & Money at SWAN

April 19th, 2012



I had an amazing time this morning! I spoke to a dynamic group of women entrepreneurs at SWAN (Successful Women Always Network) about women and money. I shared the 7 key shifts I see successful passion-business owners make that set them up to flourish financially in their business. Here’s a brief description of what we covered:

Foundation & Faith

January 31st, 2012



Foundation & Faith: 3 ways to tap into the magic
of a fresh new year (even now!)

I love January. I love the special kind of magic that’s available in the first few weeks of a new year. But by this point in the month, many of us have settled back into life-as-normal and missed this rare opportunity. Don’t let this happen to you.

Even though we’re at the end of January, there’s still time to grab the helm and set your course for a remarkable year. Here are three practices that will strengthen your foundation and unleash an unshakable faith in you that this year can be truly transformational.

Release
When I mentioned to a couple of friends yesterday that I’ve had this unrelenting urge to just rip open every closet and throw things out, they just smiled and nodded their heads. We all seem to feel it. Things that were just fine a few weeks ago now irk and annoy us. If you’re feeling this discontent listen to it. It’s pinpointing what you’ve outgrown and need to release.

Start clearing, resolving and releasing anything that no longer supports you. Take a few minutes daily to toss out, sort, file, or repair the ‘little’ things that have gradually cluttered your life. Ask yourself “Does this serve me now? Do I love this?” If the answer is “No” let it go. Each time you do, you’ll release a burst of energy. You’ll build your muscle of initiative, and strengthen your belief that you can make the changes you want this year.

Recommit
Rather than trying to figure out your goals for the year, start first by re-committing to your best habits. Quite likely, during the busy-ness of the Fall, you stopped doing many of the things you know support your success. Scientists call this ‘entropy’ – things tend to go from order to disorder, unless we do something about it. This is the perfect time to use the uplifting energy of the New Year to turn this around.

As you go through your day, ask yourself “What do I know works for me in this area? What’s my best practice? Am I willing to re-commit to it, now?” Each small change — like taking vitamins, filing papers, getting to the gym, taking daily action to market your services — restores your “A-game” and builds your faith that you can create something amazing in your business this year

Really daydream
You have within you a guidance system that already knows the highest potential for you and your business this year. You don’t need to figure out your goals. You just need to slow down enough to hear the whispering of your heart’s desires.

Giving yourself space to daydream will reveal what’s really possible this year. Ask yourself two simple, yet profound questions. “What do I want? What don’t I want?” As ideas come to you jot them down.

Then, imagine it’s a year from now and you actually have everything you’ve written about. What would this bring you that you don’t currently have? The answer will reveal the transformation your soul yearns for. Capture it in an inspiring theme like “Alive!,” “Connected and connecting,” “Life Upgrade,” “Stepping into my true power.” Let this theme guide your goal-setting, and you’ll put yourself on a path to happiness and fulfillment.

It’s not too late to harness the magical power of a fresh new year. I invite you use these practices starting today to seize this special energy, and make this a truly remarkable year.

Warmly,

Barb

Create Your Year with Passion & Purpose

January 3rd, 2012



“How do I know I’m setting the right goals?”
 
This time of year we’re inundated with a flood of information about goal setting. From magazine articles to tweets we’re urged to set our aim for the year.
 
However, most of this information misses the secret to truly fulfilling goal setting. It focuses solely on externals – the concrete, measurable outcomes we want. While it’s vitally important that we define the specific results we want, that alone isn’t enough.
 
Think about it for a moment. Have you ever achieved a huge goal, only to feel hollow, flat, and empty? Most of us have, and it’s a signal that we omitted the key ingredient in powerful goal setting.
 
We’ve missed the spirit behind our goals. The compelling “why.” The essence. Our heart’s desire.

When you take time to tap into what you really want, and then design goals that paint a picture of fully living this essence, you’ll know for sure your goals will lead to happiness and fulfillment.
 
Here are three simple steps to help you discover your authentic goal for this year:

Savour, Celebrate and Learn

December 15th, 2011



“A result is not an accomplishment until it’s recognized.”  Joe Dominguez

Over the last few days, I’ve been spontaneously thinking about the past year, wondering “How’s it gone? What’s happened, really?”
This time of year offers us a powerful opportunity to take a leap forward, by pausing for a year-end debrief.

Elite athletes take time at the end of a game to replay video footage, review the plays, debrief what worked and pinpoint the next areas of growth. We can empower ourselves by doing the same thing with our businesses and our lives. A potent debrief includes three parts: savouring, celebrating and learning.
