Today’s a new day and a new month! This means it’s time to seize the moment. The new month means new opportunities to crush your goals. Today, I want to focus on your energy. You’re the heartbeat of your home, your office, your business – everything you do. Let’s start this month off with a check in. Is your heartbeat radiating the love and energy you want it to? You are a light, a beacon, for your business. The new month gives you a chance to take stock of where you are and where you want to go. Ask yourself, “who am I?” In discovering this, identify what really gets you excited. Month end is a big deal in my business. It’s all encompassing and exhausting. But it’s also exciting! What gets you up no matter how tired you are? And on the flip side, what completely drains every ounce…

How to Win People Over with Your Voice

800 800 Heather Quisel

Think about how you present yourself. What do you think about first? Your makeup? Your clothes? Something else? All of those things are important, but none of them matter quite as much as your tone of voice. From your tone of voice, people are deciding about your confidence, your intelligence, your capabilities. It’s about the energy with which you show up. Energy, both good and bad, is contagious. Keeping that in mind, you can see how your tone of voice plays a key role in winning people over to your brand. Let’s say you’re on a phone call with a prospective client or team member. The energy, the tone of voice, you bring to that call is the biggest factor by which the person on the other side of the call is going to base their decision. Here’s an example from my own journey. Early on when I started growing…

Personal profile business page or group page where to post to get the most engagement for your business by Heather Quisel

Personal Profile, Business Page, or Group Page: where to post to get the most engagement for your business

800 800 Heather Quisel

In working with my team, one of the most common questions I’m asked is where to post on Facebook. I’ve had to figure this out and revisit it myself many times over the years as an entrepreneur. I’m going to share some tips with you to help you decide where it’s best for you to post to grow your business. The whole idea with posting on Facebook is make sure you’re being seen. For most people, particularly those new to business, this will happen on your personal Facebook page. I talk about this a lot in my products “Post your way to six figures” and “The Six Figure Social Media Formula.” The gist, though, is that your personal profile, especially as a new entrepreneur, is where you’ll have the most eyeballs looking at your stuff. The key is not drowning those eyeballs with posts about BUYING your stuff. People don’t…

how to stop seeing problems and seize opportunities for success in everything you do by Heather Quisel

How to stop seeing problems and seize opportunities for success in everything you do

800 800 Heather Quisel

Get ready to have your world rocked! You are going to love this! I’ve been reading a book called “Energy Leadership” by Bruce Snyder. In the book, he talks about the Five Principles of Empowerment. To be successful in life, in anything you do, you need to know at least this one thing. Ready? He first principle he discusses is this: Life only offers opportunities. Life does NOT offer problems or challenges. What this means is that any stumbling block or perceived challenge you’re facing is an opportunity to grow and learn. If you’re coming from the perspective of identifying things as problems, you’re coming from a negative mindset and allowing your mind to make things seem harder than they truly are – it’s based out of fear. Think about how you can shift your thought process away from fear to one of “this is an opportunity to ____.” Make…

How to build up your team and get big results

800 800 Heather Quisel

You know that to do anything big, anything amazing you need a team. Your team will share the load and help bring that vision to life. They’ll help push that vision forward and make it a reality. As leaders, there are three different ways we can share that load. As you read through them, think about how you’re delegating your tasks and how that’s working for your team. The first way you, as a leader can share a load is by dumping. Dumping is all about the leader. You’re overwhelmed and stressed and want to get rid of it, so you dump it into someone else’s lap. Think about how that must feel. Your loyal team is now left with the weight you were carrying. You just made your burden someone else’s. It’s not helpful in developing others – which is ultimately your role as a leader – but it is…

The #1 Reason you are feeling let down and how to overcome it by Heather Quisel

The #1 Reason You’re Feeling Let Down, and How to Overcome it

700 700 Heather Quisel

We’ve all felt disappointment in life. Situations and people let us down. You’ve been there. I’ve been there. And we’ll likely be there again. There’s one thing that leads to disappointment in every situation. Whether it’s relationships, work or even a vacation or fun family experience that you thought would be more fun. This one thing causes the feelings of disappointment, frustration and being let down. That’s right – ONE THING. What is it? Expectation. Expectation – every single time. Expectation is basically this concoction we’ve created in our minds about how a particular scenario is going to go. Quite often, this expectation – what we WANT to happen – is not what actually happens in reality. When reality doesn’t measure up to your expectations, that’s where the feelings of let down and disappointment show up. I’ve met many people with unreasonable expectations. They’re either always disappointed or they always…

How do you use the first hour of the day by Heather Quisel

How do you use your first hour of the day?

When I was a new mom, I was encouraged to start a gratitude journal. On one half of the paper I was to write down all the things each day I’d been grateful for. On the other side of the paper, I wrote down the things that kept me from being grateful. In the early days, I could write down a lot more things that kept me from happiness than things that filled me up, but as time went on, and I learned how to LOOK for things to be grateful for, my list became increasingly heavy on the gratitude. It’s about leading a grateful LIFE, friends! Today, I still practice this kind of focus. Each and every morning, long before checking emails, or social media, or even everyday radio stations. I read and sit quietly. I read something inspiring to fill my mind with what’s possible, reminding me of…

How to Seek Growth and Abundance from Overwhelm and Frustration

Think about your life. If you’re anything like me, it’s so easy to get down on yourself for not being perfect – not being the perfect spouse, the perfect mom, the perfect business owner, etc. We feel the need to be right all the time. Those days and feelings are real. Those days seem to highlight all of your faults. You can’t get out of your own way. A movie reel of your failures runs through your mind. It’s life, but it can bog you down. When I get that feeling, I sometimes change my location. I’ll work from a coffee shop. Doing this means I can take a step back. So can you. When you get that feeling that you’re failing at EVERYTHING. Reframe it. Pause the “failure” movie reel and create one highlighting all the things you’re doing well. When you’re challenged or frustrated thinking about what’s actually…

How to Discipline Yourself for Success When You Don’t Feel Like It

You know those mornings you wake up and all you want to do is hit snooze? You’ve got a huge case of the “I don’t wannas.” You don’t want to get up, you don’t want to shower and you definitely don’t want to go to work. I have those too. We all do. When this recently happened to me, my brain kicked in and started making excuses for why I didn’t have to get up, go to the gym, etc. Here’s how I deal with it…I put one front in front of the other. I get up. I go to the bathroom. Put my clothes on, etc. I know that I could skip a day here or there, especially when it feels like my body and brain are fighting me.  BUT skipping those tough days isn’t smart. Working through, PUSHING through those days is how you set yourself up for…

What do you need to eliminate from a problem to resolve it by Heather Quisel

What do you need to ELIMINATE from a problem to resolve it?

I love Tim Farris. I was gifted the book “The Four-Hour Work Week,” and it completely shifted my mindset. The whole idea is to leverage your time and your life in productive ways so you can do the things you want to do. Tim Farris also has a podcast. I love his interviews. You get so many different perspectives. In a recent podcast, he was discussing problem solving and questions you should be asking yourself to achieve the biggest results. This one nugget I took away can make HUGE changes in your life. Typically, when we run into problems, our instinct to fix it is to DO something. DO more of this or that…DO something differently. Tim Farris has a different take on it. He says, look at what you can SUBTRACT from a situation to solve the problem. Think about it as “not to do list.” What can you…
