Challenging yourself to be happy with the 30 Day Transformation Challenge

So what is holding you back from the things you want to accomplish in life?

“You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.” Anthony Robbins

I’m sitting here tonight listening to the rain pour outside, the way it does on occasion here in the Seattle area. To me it’s almost always this calming, cleansing feeling to hear, to see the rain. It opens my mind to the dreams as I drive down the road with nothing but the sound of the rain on the rooftop. It’s mindful of life. Rain nourishes the world around us. Without it there would be no rebirth of the world each spring. Without it we would not be.

So what are you getting out of the place you’ve stopped at?

The challenge is to be more, to find happiness, to change your life. You have been at a standstill or you wouldn’t even be here. I know that for a fact. First, you have to figure out who you are, where you are going. If you don’t know that, you have no idea what you are doing at all. You can’t plan for living after you are gone. Life is now. Living is what you are opening yourself up to either as a Transform30 Challenger with me, or perhaps as a Juice Plus Franchise Owner within the Nourished Warriors team that is looking to try the challenge for yourself. I didn’t come into this organization without a plan of where I wanted to end up. I’m not standing here as a VF Distributor without having done the work. I didn’t buy my way in, and I didn’t sprint for it without a destination in mind. It’s the same way with fitness, nutrition, health… I know where I am going and who I am. That’s what you need to determine for yourself. I want you to figure out your story. I want you to become the person you are meant to be. I will help you when you are ready. Connect with me here, or on our Facebook Group

Take a moment when you can and watch Episode 3 of Anthony Robbins’ Breakthrough CLICK HERE because I think it will really help you get this. 

I believe that you HAVE to believe to Achieve!! Together we are going to achieve this transformation little by little. Take it in 30 day bites and know that you can create this and every 120 days it’s going to be very very noticeable!

Soul Purpose Business I This Is Your Calling, Make It Simple

Is this your soul purpose? Then why do you feel like you’re entire life is being time sucked by it?

The secret is the the Funnel …If you are building brand relationships in your entrepreneur live then you have to be using the idea of funneling someone into your business. That doesn’t mean you are looking at each friend like a dollar sign is tattooed on their forehead. It means that you are working with people, and if they have a need that you can support then you want to be able to be at the right moment of the relationship to share it with them. That’s the funnel.

Also as a business owner if you are like me you have so much going on, that there isn’t one marketing ad currently on your plate, there are 10. You aren’t dealing with 10 customers you are dealing with hundreds. So that is why I love using a very compound effect style of marketing with the latest technology tools.

More than one website, who doesn’t? I am Barbara Christensen and I have a domain addiction. 🙂 Although the more clarity I have, the more I find I am reducing those domains, and reducing the time I spend working on it. The trick to your business is to simplify it!!

For me that means I can only work with so many clients at a time, so for a great deal of my business I use automation tools. I find that using automation within a great email campaign tool allows me to stay on top of my job as a coach, a trainer, an Ambassador of good health. I need to make sure I’m there for my clients… all of my clients. This allows me to set things up for where they are, when they need it. It’s there.

Watch this video that will share some of what I do with my business, and hopefully it will help you out. I love AWeber because I can automate my programs to work with a larger community.

So you’ve heard a lot about email marketing, but you’re not sure how to use it. Well, now’s the time to discover one of the easiest ways to cultivate relationships with customers and prospects and grow your business. With this guide, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create sign up forms
  • Create email content
  • Collect new subscribers
  • Automate your emails
  • Measure email performance

I also use SendOwl Document Stamping as my download manager because it gives the downloads a personal stamp for who downloaded an item in case there is every a question. It is also great if you are offering an affiliate program, or have bundles that you’ve created. It’s a great way to pull to great systems together, and get something that works amazingly for your business.

Last year I did a program that I am working on relaunching in one of my automation programs soon, called Virtuosoul. I had to close it on day two because the response was OVERWHELMING!! Virtuosoul was my program to design your soul business, and align it to your desired lifestyle, all while keeping your artistic passion. I had 48 women sign up in the first few hours after the launch. I don’t have enough time in the day to work with more than 48 women through a month in that program. What I was most shocked about what how much this program was needed. We all have a calling, and we want to make it work, but the trick is the secret sauce. So I have worked over the last year refining the program and I promise it will be released soon!

Leading Your Network Marketing Business with Passion and Purpose

The biggest thing for you to realize about yourself when you are drawn into a network marketing organization, is that you are a leader in your own right. Someone is looking for you to lead them with your passion and your purpose. That means there are people who are turning to you for a reason, and they are listening to what you have to say. Your conversations have much more meaning than you even realize. Without understanding boundaries and roles you will be throwing people off with those conversations. So what should you realize about your conversation?

Conversation Characteristics:

– Every time you open your mouth, YOU create culture.
– These conversations are more important to results than most other conversations you have as a leader.
– They can be formal or informal, long or short
– You are having them already, even if you don’t consciously realize it.

Look for opportunities to turn a normal conversation into a leadership conversation. Don’t “vomit” up your business … but instead lead people into it by sharing your lifestyle… with sprinklings of why you are so passionate about your business every day. Determine WHY this business is so important to you, and break it down into a short and concise elevator response.

Learning to manage your passion with clarified boundaries

When we talk about “the passion of vision,” we’re talking about a deep, sustained energy. It’s fueled by the realization of the unique contribution we have the capacity to make—the legacy we can leave. It clarifies purpose, gives direction, and empowers us to perform beyond our resources. —Stephen R. Covey

This Energy… this VISION is powered by the roles and goals that really define who you are and what you need to do. But most of us don’t even know what our goals are. Without boundaries your time gets easily eating up, and the life you want becomes further and further out of reach.

What roles do you play in life? Wife, Husband, mother, business owner, teacher, daughter, friend, neighbor, volunteer? You know what they are – and some of you may be working on too many roles. You should have only six roles that you are using to define the forward momentum… think about what it would be like to wear twenty hats and get everything done in life that you need to do… how would that work??

So how can I define my roles in life to move my network marketing business forward?

Today I’d like for you all to do the following:
1. List your roles…. as many as you can think of.
2. Assign a priority to each role, or reflect on if one role really is part of another role.
3. List any key people associated with these roles.
4. Write a clarifying statement that describes specifically how you would want to fulfill this role in your life.
5. Break it down to just 6 Roles… and let the rest go. It is hard but your productivity will flourish if you can do this, and your life will feel completely different.

November Thankfulness – Day 8 – Have The Courage To Grow Up

November Thankfulness – Day 8 Was Powerful

Today as I was sharing why I was thankful … I found it to be so powerful I wanted to share it on the blog. I am pretty sure that we all have at least one family member with Peter Pan syndrome that refuses to grow up. They don’t get responsibility, they live with someone who takes care of all of their needs, and they are just not living up to their purpose. In fact they often hide behind the statement of DOING what they need to do for their purpose. Truth be told, it’s a lie. Purpose is meant to be shared and not stored away!

People have excuses, I’ve had excuses. Every day you can come up with an excuse on why you aren’t going after things you should, to make your dreams come true. Goals are not just words on paper. They are ACTIONS! If you don’t take action you don’t succeed. You know as you are reading this how true that is. But why am I thankful for all of this? It’s because I didn’t have this at 20, or even 30… and 40 I was coming out of the fog of denial. I knew my purpose but I was hiding behind it. So be thankful for growing up. Be thankful for learning about yourself, and knowing what you have to do at whatever age you are at. And be thankful to know that there’s more for you out there no matter where you are… THERE is more!

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said today, “You can’t expect to draw people into your life who are kind, confident, and generous if you’re thinking and acting in cruel, weak, and selfish ways. You must be what it is that you’re seeking–that is, you need to put forth what you want to attract.” So you can’t live a life of true happiness serving your purpose if you don’t get out there and share it. You GIVE to RECEIVE! The secret to attracting all things in life. Move forward to get somewhere. Let go of fear, let go of control, let go of obstacles… and you’ll be open to get all of things that await the grown up version of you.

{Day 8} – I am Thankful! 

I’m thankful for being able to sort out who I am in this life, and not just believing that where you are is who you are, and that there’s nothing more. I feel so sad when I see someone that is stuck in that mentality. We’re all going through the same things here. We learn something new, we have light bulb moments of why things happened, why things need to change, we realize we have purpose… but it doesn’t just happen because you turned 18. YOU don’t just grow up, become an adult and KNOW what you want to do with your life.

Barbara Christensen I Paleo Vegeo I Have The Courage To Grow UpBut the truth is that it does take courage to do what you want to do in life. Every single day I watch these women and men on my teams really define who they are – and the IMPACT!! Oh my gosh the impact it has on your life to figure all of that out is so huge! It’s what makes dreamers into achievers. No joke. 

I see it this way, I am maybe half way through life… I truly pray I have another half at least. And so it’s okay for me to still be defining my direction on how to best serve my purpose in life. I wasn’t one of those people that knew at 23 exactly what I was going to do… I explored. That led me to here, and it’s exactly where I am meant to be. Where it will take me tomorrow with be amazing I’m sure as well. Have courage!! Go after the passion in your HEART…. grow up, know that means sharing your passion and not hiding it away. You’ll change lives… I guarantee it!!

Creative Marketing For Effective Use Of Your Advertising Dollars

Creative Marketing is the key to your business success

I think that often the problem is finding the right marketing venue that works for your business. There are so many websites, magazines and newsletters out there that it can be overwhelming to someone new in business and it can be very frustrating even sometimes for those of us that have been in business for quite some time.

Many lower level executives think the advertising/marketing industry holds a poor grasp of the business issues confronting organizations such as theirs, according to the latest study from Forbes.com and Euro RSCG Worldwide. Most of the 9,000 senior executives polled agreed that advertising is an important driver of corporate success. In fact, 72 percent think advertising and marketing can have a substantial influence over the way the market perceives their company; while 62 percent feel their advertising and marketing programs have a substantial impact on sales. But when it comes to effectiveness, the respondents were split — about 42 percent felt that “the advertising industry seems to have a poor grasp of the business issues confronting organizations like mine”, while just under 40 percent think “external advertising and marketing services bring a valuable perspective to our advertising and marketing issues.”

You have to remember that there are 2,405,518,376 human beings (up from 812,000,000 in s 2004) are now online worldwide (Internet World Stats) and so online marketing is something that can be really quite confusing.

Electronic advertising is one of the biggest gaining areas that large and small companies are using today. It’s a very important feature for any company if it’s used correctly. An effective Web Marketing Campaign that would bring the rate of return visitors up, and house sales at an increase. Emitations.com, was looking to efficiently market new products and promotions to her loyal, yet demanding customer base. To appeal to these demanding consumers, she needed a convenient and appropriate communication vehicle. Emitations.com now publishes a weekly newsletter to communicate with customers and prospects. 

The newsletters that I am talking about are a great improvement from the text-based emails that were individually prepared and emailed, as they are now using a great HTML software program to manage their campaigns. Sometimes creating these emails and managing the mailing lists are too time consuming and you don’t get the professional look that you want as well. If you can’t look as professional then why bother, right? I love how AWeber makes not only my newsletter, but my automated and feature email marketing a breeze.

But if you use your tools correctly – you can keep your customers coming back for specials, educational benefits and so much more. Also you don’t have to just build your email list online. If you are talking to someone offline why not ask them if they’d like to get your email newsletters. Always put the contact into your smart phone, or address book. As long as you always provide them with an out, if they say yes you could turn them into a customer. Email marketing is one of the lowest cost advertising tools you can use today. 

How many other ways can I connect with my customer base? 

Another great tool is networking with others. Networking is on of the biggest keys to the puzzle of business. Network can be a noun or a verb. It can be a group of people that exchange information or the act of exchanging information, contacts and experiences with others for a professional or social purpose.

Our American society does not encourage individuality as a general rule, and there for it does not teach us how to network. If you were to ask ten different people what networking is – you may get as many as ten different answers. One person’s definition of networking probably depends upon their use of this important personal and professional activity or lack of use as I’ve seen more often. Networking is about making new friends, finding a new job, developing your current career, exploring new career options, obtaining referrals or sales leads, or simply to broaden your professional horizons, as it is important to focus on networking as an exchange of information, contacts or experience. And you don’t just have to network in your po-dunk town. With Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Linked In and many more the networking opportunities are endless. 

In any industry or career level networking helps you make connections in a personal way and build relationships of support and respect to discover and create mutual benefits. It is a skill set no serious professional businessman or women of the 21st Century can be without. The keys to networking are to make sure you introduce yourself, have a purpose for networking, make it easy for others to find you/your business, and of course when appropriate exchange business information and be prepared. Many people jump right to exchanging business information. If you were looking for a top-notch dentist or surgeon where would you look? Would you trust the testimony of a good friend, or the size of a phone book ad? To be able to sell new clients, you must be able to benefit from current clients. To be able to get referrals you must be able to make the connections needed to get the referrals. If you do not engage your networking community – you’ll never be able to gain their support. If you don’t think you can network with others effectively – then you should rethink starting a business for yourself. Poor networking can ruin your reputation. 

Your reputation is your business credit. Your networking partners are your business equity. When you have great equity in your home and you need home improvements it is always much easier to get a loan. When you need business – and you have great business equity in your networking community – it is easy to fill the time slots, to sale the orders, to raise the level of your business success. 
Good networking partners will provide you with referral clients because of the equity you’ve built with them through time. These supports will be a strong foundation to increase the value of your business. But never forget to send your gratitude to anyone and everyone that you network effectively with, in writing. Personal Communication is the single biggest strategy in building your business. One thank-you is worth a mint. When you get a referral, when a client allows you to use them for a testimonial, remember that in order to continue to grow your business equity you will need to communicate to them the gratitude. 

Learn to improvise and improve. When capital is low, it’s the smart business owner that uses a variety of plans to hold down marketing costs. Share newsletter space with great partner companies. Trade links with other websites that offer services or products that work well with your overall structure, not just to trade links. A good online friend may not be a great marketing partner. Offer great “freebies” on your website to keep your visitor’s coming back. Always offer an opt-in email for news and updates and use this as an effective low-cost advertising tool. Offer incentives to current and prior customers to keep them coming back. Learn to focus on your target market, and only advertise where you’ll hit the bull’s-eye. When in doubt, follow your gut instinct.

How many of you are looking for marketing or want new customers? How many of you do both online and offline sales? Do you consider yourself to be active in networking and referring business to others you meet? Do you feel you use your advertising dollars for the best placed ads? These are some important questions you need to ask yourself today.

Business, Life and Wellness Coach Barbara Christensen I Paleo Vegeo I Bija Coaching

By doing this you are going to taking advantage of the top items to build your business. This allows you to be “big business’ on the outside, while staying true to and working within the confines of your small business needs.I see this again and again within my coaching business when working with people just like you.

The average business will lose 10% – 30% of thier customer base every year, so keeping the customer base you have is the most effective marketing strategy you have. A fundamental first step in developing that effective relationshop marketing is to leverage yourself as the leader in what you do best.

And effective strategy would be concise, and focus on a single meaningful attribute, rather than trying to be everything to everyone. If you have never tried eating a dinosaur, how do you know what the best place to start is? Do you start at the front, the back, the legs? But if you’ve made 700 amazing green smoothies, then you have all of the knowledge to share with others on the how and why of how things go together.

And the most effective marketing strategy is to be rated as the BEST in one or more meaningful qualities. If you can’t be the best, then you try to better than most or different than the majority. But never settle for second best because your customers never will.

Studies have shown that 30% of all customers make decisions based on price. So don’t make price the deciding factor, because it’s not. Promote how you are going to be a detected item on the radar that they just can’t stop thinking about. BLIP… BLIP… BLIP… and by doing so you are going to be able to overcome most pricing objections because you are giving them what they have been thinking about over and over again.

What do you think would happen if you had an entire room of people and the lights suddenly went off? 

Turning off the power will not only gain you the most attending {turn back on} but it allows you to zero in on your clients as they collect outside to figure out what you are doing! You are inviting them to come on over and check you out. So what are you doing? Do you take the time to turn off the power? Or do you bombard them with heavy neon lights all day long?

The ideal way to market your product or service is to lead with the most compelling functional “need” you offer. and then appeal to the psychological needs of your niche market. If you can do this in a way that shows the primary differences between you and your competitors – then you have covered all of your bases, and you are see that graph start to move on up.

Now, you may just be choosing the wrong customers. This costs you in several ways. These customers are short term… they were never really into it in the first place. If you are building a team of people that want to be there, you are on track. If you are building a team of people that just said yes because you are that good… you are going to find that they are going to be very labor intensive. They will cost you time, money and in the end future referrals because you never should have sold to that customer perhaps in the first place. It’s best to avoid those customers and release yourself from focusing on those people that will never be happy with what you are offering.

When creating your marketing strategy you want to stop, think and ask, “So what? It helps you to translate the features of a promotion to the benefits. This will help you to develop how you will approach your customers when the time comes. It’s not going to always happen, and most of the time won’t happen the first time someone sees your post, your blog, your promotion, your website. The research has shown that the majority of sales are carried out after SEVEN exposures to your product. So you have to develop a way to keep bringing them back.

Blip… Blip… Blip… 

The average marketing communication must gain the interest of the consumer in 2 seconds. So you have to be quick, consise, yet make them want to come back? Pictures say more than words, and you can share that in your own image more than using someone else. Pull them in, and help them to continue to pay attention to your marketing message.

So take that moment in time where you get it… let this click! Watch the next Breakthrough with Anthony Robbins and start to take the shift to create  the quality of life that you deserve, and start thinking about your business in the way that your customers do. If you get the answer for this question in this video, you will figure out your niche. I promise. The decisions you make without targeting, what do you get? You don’t get the change you want. You have to be concise. Listen to the beginning of you journey, and start to develop those BLIPS!

You may not realize how all of this works together right now, but I hope that you watch the video, and then come back maybe later today, or in a week and re-read what you need to do and that’s when it will all really click.

Where are you taking your brand in business?

Where are you taking your brand as you are building a business? 

Barbara Christensen Bija Coaching Ocean Avenue Founding Member Beachbody Coach Life Coach
Everything you are doing during your daily social media connecting, you are really building your brand. Your branding is all about who you are, and what your business stands for. Do you post videos in your shorty shorts… maybe if you are teaching a fitness class online, but not if you are sharing a favorite recipe. And I hope not if you are trying to recruit people. You may find that who you portray in the personal world can overlap into your business world pretty quickly. I’ve seen women that were stalked that’s to the quick ability of people to find out everything about you via social media when they thought they were just “having a good time” and portraying that online.

Speaking of brands, do you want to purchase a fitness program from someone that gripes all the time about how they caved again and ate another giant cinnamon bun for breakfast? Do you think they really know what it takes to get healthy? What about a diet shake from someone who’s waist size hasn’t changed in the last year while drinking it? If you aren’t authentic and you aren’t going to live the lifestyle you promote, you may have picked the wrong business. It’s like the jewelry rep that never wears a necklace. You have to be the picture on the front cover of the magazine that makes them want to BE you!

Let’s take it further. Is your brand image filled with pictures of you partying it up, smashed out of your mind with your pals? Who is going to have faith that you can give them the quality advice to build a successful business if you seem to not even have a grip on your own life. You need to realize that who you are is going to come back and bite you on the behind if you let it, and so don’t let it. Be the person you want to be, be the brand you want to share. Let’s talk about how you can build a brand, instead of damage your brand.

Start with your strengths when building a brand

Start right now by creating a list of your strengths you bring to your business. How can you share those strengths with your social media audience. If you are very tech savvy, share tips on the best apps on the market, how to make your email box more organized, or how to use an online calendar to keep on task. Do you LOVE to cook? Share recipes and pictures of the amazing foods you are making for friends and family members. Do you love to style others? Do videos about how you would style for the Christmas season, or for family pictures, or job interviews. Share who you are and you’ll be not only building a business, but building a personal brand that will help you reach the level of success that you are looking for.
