We're Talking Tactics! 1st THING 1st on 1/1/14!

Happy last week of 2013! 
Can you believe it? Time sure does fly when you’re doing what you love! Speaking of doing what you love, I’m on a mission in 2014 to help you do WAY more of what you love to grow your business, and WAY less of what you shouldn’t be doing. 

To fully step into 2014 and really make the next 12 months remarkable, I would like to invite you to begin your year focused and strong with an easy, yet exponential 1, 2, 3 plan. 

The 1, 2, 3, plan will take you through the first quarter of 2014, so 90 days with accelerated action towards making your BIG & BODACIOUS (love it!) first quarter goal become a reality! 

Notice that we are only focused on the first quarter at the moment. I have found that over the years, annual goals start to loose steam by the beginning of February because December seems so far away.  But if we break our annual goals into manageable quarterly buckets, we can absolutely focus on anything for 90 days. Exciting isn’t it?! 

OK, so here it is, the easy and exponential 1, 2, 3 plan to rocket your first quarter and ignite your entire year! 

1. Join the “1st Things 1st” call on January 1st at 1pm Pacific (it’s free!) where I will guide you through a process on how to focus on one thing and forget the rest (yay!) because we don’t have time to do all that unnecessary busy work anyway. Click here to register so I know how many to plan for. This call will set the tone for the the entire quarter so don’t miss it and if you already have plans, register anyway and I’ll send you the recording. 

2. Invite an accountability partner to register for the call and recording, and then make a plan to have a call with your partner every week.  Let’s face it, we’re all human. We can start things with a bang because starting something new is always exciting, but staying the course is the hard part.  I guarantee that if you have someone to help you stay the course EVERY WEEK, your results will be exponentially better than if you try to go it alone. Trust me. This is the secret sauce and I walk my own talk with accountability partner calls TWICE a week! 

3. Commit. Yes, simply commit for 90 days. Deciding is one thing, but making a commitment is golden. If you’ve been struggling to grow your business, to generate consistent and sustainable personal income, or to re-invent yourself in way that feels more authentic and less like pushing a rock uphill, then it’s time for you to make the commitment to yourself NOW. Time to step fully into who you are meant to be by sharing your unique gifts and talents in a bigger, more expansive way. Your time is now, so step in, step up, and let’s make it happen together. Whoo hoo to that! 


If you haven’t already, get registered now for SYMPOSIA :: 2014 Conference for Women Entrepreneurs.  I created this awe-inspiring day just for YOU. It’s not a profit making endeavor- it’s a labor of love. You need to hear the stories of these 7 figure women so you can learn, feel mentored and model the path they have carved.  Their stories are your story, just further down the path. Reserve your seat now if you’re serious about making 2014 a remarkable and rock star year, and use the promo code INSPIRE to save $30.  This day was created just for you, so again, just step in and step up! 

Whew this was a long one! That’s how passionate I am about making this year EXPONENTIAL & REMARKABLE! 

Here's the link again to register for the “1st Thing 1st” call on January 1st at 1pm which will also take you to the registration page for SYMPOSIA :: 2014. 

This is going to be an exciting year and I can’t wait to take this amazing 2014 journey together!

We're Talking Tactics! 6 Tips to End Perfection Peralysis & Become a 100% Finisher!

If you're reading this, you probably know that I consult with and coach women entrepreneurs to determine the best strategies to grow their sales to a million and beyond, but did you also know that I walk my own talk by having my own coaches for various aspects of my business? Well I absolutely do (and if I didn't, you shouldn't be working with me!).

During a recent conversation with my accountability coach, she said something that made a huge impact, so of course I want to pass her message on to you.  When we were reviewing my commitments, she said, "Now I understand what's happening. You are a 90%er."

I have to admit that I was stunned for a second, but then immediately had a huge revelation. "Yes I am!" I said, and was so excited to realize why it's taking longer than I want to finish projects that are really important to me.  

As we talked about it further, I got real about the fact that when something is really important to me, the last ten percent suddenly feels like running uphill at mile 12 of a half marathon with only 1.1 miles to go, because I want it to be.... perfect! So yes, sometimes I struggle the same issues I discuss with many of you - Perfection Paralysis

I used to be a frequent 70%er, so getting to 90% is progress, but now with full acknowledgement and a few strategies, I'm pushing to one hundred with ease and enjoyment!  Because truth be told, it feels GREAT to finish something completely.  Exhale.

So here are my 5 tips to help you push through perfection peralysis (so we can be in the 100% club together!):

1) Decide what percentage of your projects you are currently finishing now.

2) Determine your top 3 projects that will make the most impact if you finish them 100%.

3) Choose ONE project to focus on now and commit to a reasonable 100% completion date.

4) Take a short walk or get a drink of water when you get the the part that's hard to complete, but come back to it right away. 

5) Find an accountability partner or coach and commit to a day and time every week to check-in until your project is 100% complete.  

6) When the going get's extra tough (usually just as you are about to breakthrough), focus on the great feeling you'll have when you can finally say... DONE! 

Growing your business is a journey, and hopefully these six tips will make the journey that much more satisfying and fruitful.

Lastly, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't tell you how to work my awesome accountability coach if that's the piece missing for you, so learn more about Ali Schiller at She is fantastic!

Until next time, Be Profitable & Be WELL! 

xoxo, jgw.

P.S. That picture is of me FINISHING my first half marathon.  See the pure joy in my face after running 13.1 miles? All because I finished what I set out to do... yippee!

P.S.S. Get focused on your most profitable strategies and projects for next year at my conference just for women entrepreneurs "SYMPOSIA :: 2014".  The speaker line up is beyond inspiring so click to learn more and reserve your ticket at before we sell out!
