Do you ever find that a day, a week or sometimes a month can slip by and you feel like you haven’t really progressed in your business? When you look back at the time you realize you were busy, but this “busyness” hasn’t yielded you any results?
If this has happened to you, you are not alone. We have all been there before. The trick however is to recognize it and then do something about it. When I first discovered this was happening to me, I let it go on for a little bit longer than I would like to admit (nobody’s perfect, right?!). Over time however, as I got more serious about my business, I knew that something had to change.
Here are two key meetings that helped me break the cycle of spending my days, ‘busy being busy’ and getting nothing done to being uber productive and getting more traction in my business which led to (and leads to) helping more people, making more money and making a bigger impact.

Not long ago, Dr. Laura Nurse would sit in her office for 8 hours and sometime see just one client, on a good day. As a new Naturopathic Doctor, she was doing everything she knew to market herself yet she just couldn’t figure out why people weren’t running in to see her.
What Laura didn’t realize at the time, was that she didn’t know the ‘business’ side of her business yet. She knew how to be a great Doctor, but was still unknown to the skills of how to be a great entrepreneur and marketer.
Laura and I met in April 2013 and we got to work. In just 15 months, Laura has achieved:
- Building her practice to full time capacity;
- Moving into Phase 2 of growth (hiring help and expanding);
- A fantastic reputation in her community as a leader in health for women;
- Creating a beautiful online brand and presence;
- Feeling personally happy and no longer stressed out over wondering where her next client is going to come from;
- Feeling confident in the business side of her business!

As I reflect back on 2014 I am in awe of how things turned out. It’s been a pretty incredible year. This year I realized my biggest dream of becoming location independent. Living for six months in South America (three months each in Ecuador and Peru), laptop in hand, was incredible. Opening up new markets in the US, Europe and Australia was inspiring and creating and launching my online signature group coaching program, Mindset & Marketing Mastery was scary, fun and totally awesome.
When I look back at what helped create this success, there are a few things that stand out. But today, I wanted to talk about the one marketing tactic that worked the best. It wasn’t Facebook ads, webinars or even blogging.
