There’s a ‘theme’ happening right now among a lot of business owners I talk with and I’m wondering if you might have this ‘theme’ playing out in your business?
June marks the halfway point in the year, which means you’re either celebrating the success of reaching all your goals in the first 180 days or you’re running your fingers through your hair wondering what went wrong AND you may be wondering what you can do to make sure the next 180 days produce the results you want (& deserve).
You are not alone.
Many entrepreneurs find themselves in this position at this time of year but, the ones that work smarter know they need to reach out and get help – – bring on a thinking partner to help them clear the clutter and focus in on exactly what they need to do next in order to accomplish the goals they’ve set for themselves.
That’s why I’m opening up my calendar during July, while I’m in the beautiful, peaceful, mountains of Park City, Utah, to meet with a few women entrepreneurs who understand the importance of getting out of the day-to-day of running their business and retreating in a calm, serene environment that gives them the opportunity to think bigger, more expansive, more strategic about their next moves and desire a ‘thinking’ partner to help them along the way.
If you’re someone who has thought about “social selling” or “network marketing,” then you’re going to be excited about my guest today, Tysh Mefferd. Tysh is a Double Diamond Director with Stella & Dot, a social selling company that sells jewelry, handbags, clothing, and other accessories for women (They actually had to create a NEW title for Tysh because she shattered all their sales quotas.) Tysh is currently the #1 Top Earner in the company earning over 100K in the month of November 2017.
Before Stella & Dot, Tysh had a thriving business in the wedding industry. Her whole life shifted when Hurricane Ike hit Texas in 2008. Tysh originally became a stylist with Stella & Dot as a side gig to help pay off some bills, but it quickly turned into something bigger. Tysh currently leads a team of over 9,000 stylists globally.
I’m so excited for you to hear from Tysh as she explains more about network marketing, when you should get involved, her tips to break into the industry, her productivity tips, her dreams and goals, and why she loves her flexible work schedule.

When everything feels urgent, everything seems equal. Nothing could be further from the truth. Being “busy” doesn’t necessarily move you closer to reaching your goals. Successful business owners understand you have to work from a clear sense of priority.
The long to-do list can actually lead you away from your goal – not closer to it. Instead of a to-do list, I invite you to start thinking about a success list. A success list is one that purposefully and mindfully has action items and tasks that are created around ONE big goal you envision for the year. Your success list should be short and sweet with items that take you closer to your goal.
If you look closely at what’s happening in the Western world–in politics and gender identity movements, and at work—you may notice that women are receiving more recognition for the unique qualities we bring to the table. Is there a lot more work to do? YES! But it’s time to cheer for all that we’re seeing right now.
Today, I want to dig into these feminine qualities—or Feminine Energies.
In my years as a business strategist to women entrepreneurs, I have found there are 7 Feminine Energies that we weave into our professional lives.
You may not be in touch with every single one of these energies. They will ebb and flow, depending on your past experiences, your current needs and priorities.
So, how do you know which ones you need to bring into your life?
Grab a pen and paper, and take a moment to answer the 7 Energies Assessment below.
A few people have been asking my team about the hotel where my upcoming MOXIE Retreat is happening on January 20-22, 2016. Rather than try and explain the hotel’s magnificence, I thought I’d take you on a virtual tour and show you this lovely gem located on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Watch the video below I created just for you.
After I released my first book, “What’s Next?: The 7 Steps to Discover Your Big Idea and Create a Wildly Successful Business” in the fall of 2013, I was overcome with a feeling of emptiness. I was living in my body but there should have been a sign around my neck that said “unoccupied.” I had given so much of my creative energy to the writing process for the book. Oddly enough, I was beginning to feel the “What’s Next?” question floating around inside my own head.
Here’s what I know for sure: I LOVE my business and my clients – Period. I sometimes feel like I’m in a dream and someone is going to wake me up and tell me it’s all over, get dressed and report to my cubicle by 9am.
But…something was stirring inside of me…
I knew change was on the horizon. I just didn’t know what it was.
I took the same advice I give to all the fabulous women entrepreneurs and business owners I work with: “Don’t rush the process. Allow the idea to unfold organically in it’s own time.” Intuitively, I knew that if I rushed this evolution, I would waste valuable time, energy and effort and wind up in the wrong direction.
With only 41 days left in this year, now is the perfect time to plan your income goals for 2014 so you can enjoy the holidays and cross the threshold into the New Year with a confident plan of action.
For those of you who find looking at your numbers similar to running nails down a chalkboard, you may find some resistance to this process, however I can guarantee this is time well spent and a bigger income can be yours if you follow this simple, easy process. This will take the guesswork out of how to achieve a big, bold income leap next year.
Grab a piece of paper, a pencil and a calculator (or your smart phone) and take yourself through the three steps below:
The other day, while standing in a very long line at my local coffee shop, I struck up a conversation with the woman behind me. We began chatting about everyday topics-the weather, the holiday rush, and then we stumbled on that dreaded topic of the moment-the economy. I asked her a question: “What do you think would be the most important thing you could have in your life right now to support where you are, given the economy?” She was a little surprised by this question, but her reply was very telling. She said,“Having an abundant source of constant cash flow.” My next question was, “And what steps have you taken to secure that?” After a long pause, she replied “Not much.”
I have the opportunity to speak with scores of women around the globe about smart ways to grow a successful business. One of the best ways to grow your business and collapse your time frame is through joint ventures. A joint venture is where you and another business owner come together for an agreed upon period of time and collaborate on a project or product. You agree to share revenues and expenses associated with the specific project or product.
Why is this so powerful? It offers you and the other person an opportunity to showcase your skill and expertise to a larger audience. When you meet someone who serves the same target market as you, but in a different way, it can be a wonderful boost for your business. Here are a few examples of potential joint venture possibilities:
