As I opened my eyes, I saw the sun beaming in on the wooden panels that would be my new home for the next month or so. I put my feet to the floor, looked out the window and smiled as I saw the smoke curling from my new neighbour, the towering active volcano, Vallirrica.
After 5 weeks in the busy metropolis of Santiago, I was now in the small town of Pucón, Chile. As the adventure capital of Chile, Pucón has a lot to offer a tourist. Upon my first day I ventured out to discover my new home. After discovering the local lake, shops and taking in the breathtaking view, I went back to my room to set up. With my laptop on my lap, tripod and iPhone, I was ready to meet with my clients.
You see, I am a digital nomad, which means that I can work from anywhere in the world (as long as I have good wifi). Over the next two weeks I proceeded to work and on my off time be a great tourist. I hiked mountains, biked the area, kayaked on the lake, broke bread with locals and foreigners and generally enjoyed my time there.
About two weeks in I started to feel an uneasiness...

This has come up a lot lately with coaches so I had to write about it. Do you find yourself saying things like;
“I should be making more money by now.”
“I should be blogging more consistently.”
“I should have a bigger email list by now.”
“I should be making as much as (insert your colleague/competition name here).”
“I should be feeling better about my business by now.”
You shouldn’t, shouldn’t you? Or should you?

I get it, you have lives to change, you want to make six figures and travel the world. You want all of your money troubles to be long forgotten. You hear the stories, “I made it to 6 figures in 6 months!”, “I’m a millionaire in just 1 year!”.
Some of them might be true and some of them might not be. Whether they are true or not is irrelevant.
Here is what I know: If this is the story you are wanting to create for yourself and it hasn’t happened yet (and it’s already been 6 months, a year, maybe even 5 years), then this is the very reason why it hasn’t happened yet. Let me explain.
Let’s take a lesson from the world of dating (which by the way… is EXACTLY like business). ;)

Thursday March 5, 2015
With just over a decade in the financial services industry, Jackie McCann-Scott had seen some success. However there was something gnawing at her. There was a little voice inside her head that knew that she was ready for more.

She knew she wanted to help women and in particular momma’s… Invested Mama’s… and that is where this story begins...
