How to manifest business success – while juggling your day job

How to manifest business success – while juggling your day job

Are you still working in your day job while growing your business?

Katie Allen asked a really cool question about this:

How do you manifest business success when working in your job leaves you feeling exhausted, burnt out and really struggling to tap into that abundance mindset?”

So in this episode, we are going to talk about how to use Law of Attraction to help you make money as quickly as possible so you can build your beautiful new business – while still working in your day job!

And in fact, we’re going to talk about how to take advantage of the fact that you have a day job to turbo boost the whole thing!

Building a business while you’re still stuck in your day job can feel really hard. You might feel resentful and like you just want to so you can fully immerse yourself in your business. I felt that way when transitioning from my finance business into my coaching business.

At the time, my finance business had become my ‘day job’. I had grown it into an amazing, successful business and it brought in lots of money, but my heart was in my coaching business. That’s what I wanted to build. That’s where I wanted to spend my time. And so I found myself constantly battling against having to show up and spend so much time in the finance business.

It was really tiring and it wore me down.

So eventually I decided to stop struggling. I looked at the energetics of what was going on and took it back to basics. And I made a few tweaks that completely shifted that energy which allowed me to not just show up more in my new business without feeling tired and worn out – it also allowed that business to take off and become successful a whole lot faster! This meant I could leave the finance business sooner and hand my clients over to my wonderful husband, leaving me free to build my coaching business full time.

Here are some basic principles that will help you manifest business success and leave that day job faster:

The first thing to remember is: What You Resist, Persist!

The more you struggle against the day job, against not wanting to be there, feeling resentful of the time you’re having to put into it and the energy it’s zapping from you, the worse it’s going to get!

You will only exacerbate that problem and feel more drained and resentful. So you need to let go of that and stop resisting what is, which is what will make space for ‘what is yet to come’.

Next: Surrender allows new doors to open.

Surrender yourself to accepting that this is how it is right now. You may need to go a little bit slower. Some days you won’t be able to work on your business. 

The more you allow yourself to go with the flow of that, the more that energy actually relaxes and allows new doors to open. That allows new opportunities to come to you, because you’re no longer wrapping up all your energy in the struggle against what is. You’re allowing things to unfold and flow where life naturally wants to go next. And that allows the Universe to do its magic, put you in the right place at the right time and have the perfect conversations that ultimately help you grow your business even faster. 

Because who knows what amazing people you’ll meet through your day job that end up being the perfect catalyst to help you succeed in your business?

The more you just surrender into it and enjoy where you are right now, the more you allow the magic to unfold.

Sometimes in the Magnetic Money Club, a member will say, “Look, I’ve decided I’m going to take a part-time job as I build my business.” People used to feel embarrassed or like they’re failing, but my reaction is always to CELEBRATE because that job plays an important role in allowing your business to grow without all the pressure of having to make money instantly. It allows you to find your way, to figure it out, to let things find their way. The day job takes the pressure off your business and that allows the magic to flow.

If you’re still in a day job while building your business, tell me in the comments:
What are 3 things you love about your day job that you can be really grateful for?

The more you tap into that and express gratitude for all your day job gives you, the more you allow that energy to shift.

Remember also that the one thing that will support your alignment more than anything else, is getting enough rest. So be okay with going slow and get lots of rest because that allows you to be in alignment. And your  alignment is worth more than any amount of hard work you could put in.  

You can never work your way out of poor alignment. 

So you may as well take a rest, have a nap, go to bed early, take a day off and get back in alignment. The power of that alignment will make up for any missed time. 

Time is irrelevant when you work with the power of alignment. 

Let me share a quick story:

One of our Magnetic Money members works full-time while running her business. She took a new job she thought was going to free her up more, but didn’t realise she’d have to travel to and from the office. This meant she was out of the house from 7am until 7pm each day! There was no time and energy left for her business. She was quite distraught. We had a conversation and I said, “Look, it’s okay. Right now you’re in a transition period. Get  your head around a new job and settle in. Your business will still be there for you. Just look after yourself for now and love everything you can about this new job. And you’ll see… the energy will shift and things will find their way.”

Well, about 2-3 months went by. She felt terrible because she had all wanted to achieve all these things in her business. But she surrendered. And once she found her feet in her new job, things started to shift. She suddenly had freedom to work from home and a lot more flexibility. She found that beautiful place of alignment again and within a few months, she’d achieved more in her business than she’d hoped to all year. By surrendering and letting go, relaxing into & accepting what is, she’d allowed herself to get back into alignment. And she made up for all the ‘lost time’ in next to no time.

What she achieved in the next few months in her business was really quite staggering – and actually more than many others who are full time in their business.

So remember: Time Is Irrelevant – Alignment Trumps Everything.

Your mindset is going to be one of your most critical assets in getting you through any transition periods. So make sure you check out the episodes linked below, because they will really help you with sorting out some of the main mindset blocks that tend to slow entrepreneurs down.

It’s time to embrace your unlimited potential and you are SO ready to take that next step!

See you in the next episode!

How To Attract Business Success

How To Attract Business Success

Most entrepreneurs are impatient. 

We want to attract business success. We want the clients, the leveraged income, the freedom and the lifestyle. And we want it all… yesterday.

So when things aren’t going as fast as we’d like, we often dig in and work longer & harder.

We create more funnels, new email sequences, new marketing strategies, more content and new offers. We do MORE, hoping that will accelerate our results.

In this episode, we’re going to discuss why that’s completely the WRONG approach if you want to attract business success – especially if you want to do it WITHOUT working harder.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

 

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

When I first started my finance business, I was a broke, single mom. So naturally, I worked my butt off. I worked late nights, seven days a week. Whenever my kids didn’t need me, I worked.

And I built a wonderful, successful business. But I also got very, very tired.

When I started looking more deeply into the energetics of business success, I made some radical changes. This included deciding to only see clients during school hours and only at my office. My colleagues thought I was nuts! But guess what?

My business doubled!

I became more effective and started attracting higher quality clients who valued my time and service more. The biggest shift though was in my energy – and that made all the difference. 

And that’s what we’re going to talk about today.

First up, let’s discuss the smell of desperation… because nothing turns people off faster. (I mean, have you ever had someone be really keen to date you – but just you weren’t interested? The harder they tried, the more of a turn off it was, right?)

When we start working longer & harder to generate more business, we start giving off that energy of desperation.  And energetically it literally REPELS people.

So how do we know when you’re doing it? Let’s be honest – when you’re starting to FEEL more desperate! After all, that’s why you’re working harder, refusing to give yourself a break and trying more & MORE things.

On the other hand, what is sexy and attractive as hell is CONFIDENCE.

When you meet someone who’s totally grounded and confident – they know who they are and what they want – and they don’t give a flip what others think – that is a very magnetic quality. 

I’m not talking about arrogance. I’m talking about being confident in yourself, in what you stand for and who you are. Energetically that is very, very magnetic. And it all comes from knowing yourself, honoring yourself and loving yourself.

Here’s an easy way to get into that space:

Look at your testimonials and client feedback. Keep them all in a folder for easy reference – especially when you start to doubt yourself! When you read over those messages telling you how fantastic you are, how much you helped people, how much they appreciate you – that’s a powerful reminder of your value, the value of your service and how important what you do is.

I also invite you to spend some time getting really clear on what you stand for.. 

How do you stand out? How are you different? What does everybody else out there tell people to do? And where do you have a really strong differing opinion? What makes you ranty? What are your ‘soapbox’ statements?

For example:
For me, it’s that most people who teach Law of Attraction tell you “Do these X things and you will attract what you want”
And I call bullshit on that – because it’s not what you do that matters. Because this is a vibrational (feeling) Universe, it’s how you feel that matters and makes you more magnetic to money & abundance.

The Universe doesn’t care what you say or write. It doesn’t know if your desk is messy, what time you got up in the morning or what pictures you have on your vision board. The reason some of those things sometimes work for you is because they helped you feel abundant. And that’s what magnetizes you to more abundance!

See how that stands out from the “Do these X steps so you can attract Y?” message?

Mine is a totally different take. And you have the same in your business!

So spend some time getting clear on those soapbox statements. They will help you stand in a  whole new, much more confident energy. And that is sexy and magnetic as hell!

Next, let’s talk about what it means to be magnetic

Being magnetic, magnetizing yourself, to money, abundance, clients and opportunities actually means standing still and inviting those things to come INTO your space.

It’s not about hunting or fishing for more money, clients and abundance. It’s about standing in your power, being really clear in your energy and creating space to invite them in

How do you approach your business? Do you stand in your power, are you clear on your message and invite people into your world?

Or are you hunting them down, spraying ‘Eau de Desperation’ all over them? 😊

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Now, let’s talk about the energetics of allowing people to come into your space:

If you spend all your time creating more content, new funnels, more offers and sending out emails and offers to work with you, you’re constantly pushing energy OUT. And that means you’re not allowing any energy to come back IN!

It’s the difference between fishing and hunting versus allowing yourself to become more magnetic.

That’s why it’s important to spend more time becoming grounded, clearer on your message and creating an energetic space that people can step into.

That means being willing to step back a little, taking a break, going away for the weekend (without your laptop and phone), meditating etc.. basically allowing some time & space for all that energy you’ve put out to come back in.

Remember – energy is a flow. If you’re constantly pushing it out, you’re not creating space for the flow IN.

Before I go, let me share my number 1 tip to help you become more magnetic to money and business success:

And that is to take excellent care of yourself & get lots of rest!

Because no amount of work will ever make up for a lack of alignment. When you feel tired, when you feel run down, when you’ve been working too hard, when you start resenting your business and not looking forward to sitting at your desk anymore, you’re completely in the wrong energy. And whatever you do is not going to be effective.

In fact, it’s more likely to be counterproductive. 

So always take care of yourself first. Pay attention to your energy, listen to those early signs and take a rest when you need to. When you come back into your business, feeling rested & refreshed, you will be aligned and inspired. And everything you do can turn to gold.

This is the very key to becoming more magnetic to money and business success as an entrepreneur.

Make it your mantra to always put YOU first. To take excellent care of yourself. Because when you combine great business strategy with the power of alignment, you will get incredible leverage and amazing results.

It all comes from you looking after yourself so you can be in alignment in the first place.
Now, one of the best ways to enjoy a little rest AND align with the vibration of abundance is with a hypnotic meditation I’ve specifically created just for this purpose.
You’ll find the link in the show notes below.

It’s time to embrace your unlimited potential, gorgeous

And you’re absolutely ready to rock your business through the power of alignment.

Train your brain to make more money in 30 days

Train your brain to make more money in 30 days

Can you train your brain to make more money? Absolutely YES!

That’s because the brain is plastic. It can be molded, reshaped, retrained and rewired.

So today let’s talk about the 3 key steps that will help you rewire your brain to naturally attract more money. 

If you focus on these 3 key steps for just 30 days, the difference will be massive.

These 3 steps are based on my Magnetic Money Code system, which helps my students reach a place where they naturally live in a state of abundance.

They expect it, and so it just happens.

It’s just how life is, and they feel confident in that state. And that’s what we’re going to cover for you because it’s worked for thousands of women before you. It’s worked for me and for them and it’s absolutely going to work for you.

Step 1: Change Your Focus.

Shift your focus from lack to abundance.

Make it your mission to notice all the abundance around you, and every time you catch yourself focusing on lack, drop it like a hot potato and look for either a distraction or something that shows how much abundance you actually have. 

This helps train your brain to attract more money. It reprograms the reticular activating system – aka RAS – which sits at the back of your brain, a filter that filters out unnecessary information between the conscious and the unconscious mind.

Your unconscious mind notices everything, yet your conscious mind can cope with only a small segment of that.

So your RAS is programmed to say ‘This is important – make sure you show me that stuff. This is not important – ignore it.’

Unfortunately, most people have programmed their RAS to notice all the things that are missing, that aren’t going well, the money that’s not there, the problems, and so on.

Often there are opportunities right in front of you and you don’t see them… yet…

But by simply changing your focus from lack to abundance, you reprogram your reticular activating system.

You direct your energy to the things you want to have more of. And where your energy goes your attention goes  and what you focus on expands.

As you focus on the abundance that’s all around you, you’ll keep seeing more of it, and therefore you continue to program your mind to search for and notice that abundance. 

And that becomes “how life is”.

By simply making the decision to change your focus to abundance and practicing that over and over and over again, you change your outlook and train your brain and shift your mindset so that your natural first instinct is to see the glass as half full, rather than half empty.

And that’s what an abundance mindset is about.

I created this episode here to help you get really clear on what the differences are between rich thinking and poor thinking. So be sure to check that out if you need a refresher.

Step 2: Use Visualization. 

Visualization is incredibly simple, easy, fun and super powerful because it taps into the way your brain naturally works.

It helps reprogram your mind and recondition the body so a more abundant state of seeing abundance everywhere, noticing all the opportunities and attracting more of them becomes a way of life.

To make the most of visualization, follow the Golden Rules:

  1. Do it every day
  2. Do it for only four minutes
  3. Make it fun.

It is NOT about trying to force the Universe to deliver you the goods. <Oh yeah.. I see you..! 😊 >

It’s about taking time to retrain your brain, to start seeing life naturally as an abundant and fun place to be, and making that your default position. And while you’re visualizing, use all your senses to make it really fun. Feel that future moment, what you will hear, taste, smell – enjoy all the sensations.

As you do that, you literally flood your body with the chemistry of being in that moment. And to your body, it’s real.

You also recondition your body to live in a better feeling state so your default vibration moves higher and higher, which resonates with and attracts ever increasing levels of abundance.

Visualization helps retrain your brain with vivid pictures and images – and that’s why you start seeing the world as an abundant place full of opportunities.

And it reconditions your body by getting you literally addicted to feeling happy and prosperous – and that’s the best addiction you’re ever going to have!

It’s a super cool way to reprogram limiting beliefs around money – without having to think about it!

Just for fun… if you want to look through a list of limiting beliefs around money and see which ones you’ve been programmed with, check out this episode.

And tell me in the comments below:
Have you practiced visualization in the past? How did it go? 

Did you love it, hate it? Did you find it hard to stick with? 

I’d love to hear about your experiences with visualization!

Step 3: Take Loving Care of Your Money

The third and final step you want to incorporate into the next 30 days so you really train your brain to make more money is to start taking loving care of your money.

Educate yourself and create changes in how you look after your money, because there’s an energy between you and money. Money itself is energy and you have a relationship with it.

If that relationship is uncomfortable, your brain will try to protect you by keeping money at bay.

You want your relationship with money to feel really good, confident and welcoming, so that you attract lots more into your experience.

Learning how to become the confident custodian of your money is often the final mindset block people need to get past. But once you move past it, you’re home and hosed.

If you incorporate this step along with the previous 2 into your next 30 days, you’ll experience a really beautiful, massive shift.

The bad news is: NOBODY is born being good with money!

And the GOOD NEWS IS: Nobody is born being good with money.

You have to learn it – and it’s quite a simple, easy skill. Check out this episode if you’d like some help getting started.

It’s time to embrace your unlimited potential, gorgeous.

I know you’re ready for the next step – and you know exactly what to do for the next 30 days!

6 Steps to 6 Figures with Law of Attraction – keep it simple & easy!

Want the recipe for the 6 steps to 6 figures with Law of Attraction?


Great! Because in this episode we’re going to break it all down for you.

But first, a FUN FACT:

Law of Attraction is always on!

Yep – it’s ALWAYS working.

And that means you had better get on board and consciously participate in this process.
.. If you want to attract, manifest and enjoy more of the good things in life. …

Helping you attract a 6-figure+ income in your business is my jam.

In my Magnetic Money program, we break it down into simple & easy, actionable steps that you can repeat over and over again.

Law of Attraction is always on – just like gravity.

You can’t switch it on or off, but you can learn how to work with it to achieve the results you want.
(or you can keep on battling against it and complaining that it’s not working for you)

A long time ago I was a broke single mom. I had left my engineering career, I had left my marriage and I was left with two beautiful little children under the age of five and no income, no job, no career.

It was then that I really dedicated myself to figuring this out and learning what it took to work with the power of Law of Attraction.

At the time 6-figure income was the Holy Grail. It’s all I wanted. I thought if I could just tip over that magical 6-figure mark, everything would be fine.

And I did it! I didn’t just tip over the first 6-figures, but I created a multiple 6-figure business in finance.

The more I learned to work with the power of Law of Attraction, the easier it got..

I just kept on implementing these simple, easy, repeatable steps.

And then did it again in another business (in this business actually) –  and it’s all been LEVERAGED income.
It’s income that I don’t have to get out of bed for every morning.

And this is what I help my students and clients achieve.

So are you ready? (does a bear poop in the woods?)

STEP 1: Set the intention.

You need to get really clear on what it is you actually want. 

This isn’t about beating the Universe over the head with your order, but about YOU actually knowing what you want.

Because many people will spend a whole lot of time constantly changing their mind.

And that comes from a lack of clarity – and from feeling of not being worthy of asking for that thing.

So you’ll keep giving the Universe an out by saying “OK, even if I can just have half of that, I’ll be happy too”.

You send out mixed signals, and the Universe gets confused because you’re confused. 

And it’ll always mirror back whatever you’re putting out.

So it’s not that you can’t have whatever you desire; it’s that you need to really own it.

STEP 2: Get vibrationally on board with the outcome.

If you want to attract a multiple 6-figure income, you need to start feeling like that “6-figure income business owner”, and start resonating at that level.

Look at how you are feeling right now about yourself, your income, your ability, your capability, and start shifting the way you FEEL so you’re more aligned with that 6-figure+ version of yourself.

Step 2 is about conditioning your body so this becomes your normal state of being.

STEP 3: Reprogram the mind.

We’re talking specifically about your unconscious mind, because you want to make that predominant picture in your mind, that vision of how you see your life, to be that 6-figure+ version.

Programming your mind is most easily done through visualization.

Visualization is simple, easy and fun.

And the more you keep it that way, the more powerful it becomes. By regularly visualizing and really enjoying the process, keeping it simple and doing it every day, you reprogram your mind at the unconscious level.

This is how you start to automatically and unconsciously create and behave like the person who absolutely expects that 6-figure+ income to come into their experience. You will unconsciously behave in ways that help you attract everything you need to fulfill that dream.

STEP 4  is critical!

By this stage, the gremlins usually come out.

That’s those old belief systems and stories that say “Whoa, where we’re going is not safe! It’s not what we’re used to. THIS is NOT normal!”

So the gremlins try to distract and pull you back into the old familiar zone.

But we don’t want to stay there. We want to grow. We want to expand.

So you need to make sure you’re vigilant – without being overly vigilant. But you definitely want to keep an eye out.

And if and when you notice fear and limiting beliefs coming up, do what you need to do to transform them.

This is what helps you clear the road ahead so you can keep moving forward, keep on expanding and continue transforming and normalize to that next level of abundance.

It’s a journey to a place where you’re naturally attracting your desires & feel totally cool with it –  because that’s just how life is.

STEP 5: Taking action.

This is critical for several reasons.

Firstly, the Universe needs to be able to find you.
So you need to put yourself out into the flow of life. That is when opportunities, ideas, inspiration and everything you need in order to create that 6-figure plus income you’re looking to create can cross your path at the perfect time & in the perfect place.

Another reason is that if you do NOT take action and just sit there waiting for the money to drop out of the sky as you’re sitting on the couch watching Netflix, what’s that saying?

It’s saying you’re in a place of fear – or of not really expecting it to happen.
It says that until the Universe shows up with the money you’re not going to bother doing your part.

And this creates a stalemate situation where your inaction shows that you don’t actually expect it happen. And so it doesn’t.

This is why taking action is really, really critical.

And now for my favorite step of all:

STEP 6: Surrendering to the Universe.

You’ve decided what you want, visualized it, are feeling in alignment with it, cleared the obstacles, and are taking action… awesome.

But… HOW it all comes together and exactly WHEN is not up to you.

Why?

Because the Universe has the bigger picture in mind and so you don’t need to micromanage or worry.

You don’t need to – and in fact you shouldn’t – insist that it happens in exactly the way that you visualized it… because there are a million magical ways in which exactly what you want – and even better – can happen.

You just need to be willing to get out of the way and allow it to unfold.

Surrendering to the Universe and knowing that it is always working – trusting that you are on track – while you keep showing up and doing your part is absolutely critical to being able to use the Law of Attraction to manifest anything you want. And especially when you’re wanting to create that 6-figure+ income in your business.

So that is step Number 6 – surrendering and letting The Universe take over from here.

Now, if there’s a voice in the back of your mind asking “How do I make sure I get the balance right, Miriam? That I don’t become obsessed with the gremlins, or maybe let them run the show and not even realize it’s happening? How do I make sure I surrender, but I’m not lazy and not doing what I’m meant to be doing? How do I optimally juggle all these things?”, then I invite you to watch my free Masterclass to help you simplify your manifesting money mindset.

The link to that is below, so jump on and watch it now.

Before you go! Let me know in the comments:
Which of these steps are your strengths – and which are your weaknesses?

Maybe you’ve been avoiding one or more, thinking that if you just keep doing this OTHER one, you might not actually have to worry about them?

The thing is, you do need to do them ALL – without becoming bogged down and obsessive about any one of them.

And that simply takes practise.

You are ready to embrace your unlimited potential – and this is your time!

How to get unstuck in business – Jane’s Aligned Business Story

How to get unstuck in business – Jane’s Aligned Business Story

I recently caught up for a chat with the lovely Jane McKay from Jane McKay Communications.

I asked Jane to share her story, because she radically changed her business model after joining the Aligned Business Mastermind – and it’s paying off big time!

Jane has gone from feeling stuck in business, working way too hard and not bringing in the income she wanted, to feeling totally aligned with her business & offers, making sales easily, owning her value & loving her work.

Not to mention being completely on track to hitting her target income of $20,000 a month.

But before the change, she’d been feeling stuck in business for a while

– stuck in all the ‘doing’
– stuck in promoting packages she didn’t feel aligned with – and that weren’t selling
– stuck because she’d paid big money for a coach who helped her create those packages.

In this chat, we discuss what she did that helped her to let go of all the ‘shoulds’ and get clear on what she did want to align herself with, so could then go ahead and create it.

Enjoy!

3 habits that help you build your business to 6 figures and beyond

3 habits that help you build your business to 6 figures and beyond

In this article I’m going to share with you the 3 key habits that help you build your business to 6-figures and beyond. 

People often ask me how on earth I went from broke, single mum on government benefits to creating not just one, but TWO multiple 6-figure businesses.

And how I managed to spend loads of quality time with my kids along the way.

In fact, at one stage I also had a 3rd importing business and ebay store, I played in a live band (one that actually did paid gigs, so I had to practise & rehearse), was writing a book, speaking regularly and doing the crazy ‘mum’s taxi’ routine most nights. (You know, eating my dinner and working a little more in the car at kids’ soccer practise)

Yes, maybe that was a tad too much at once, but it did seem quite do-able at the time and I coped quite well!

I credit one simple motto:

“It’s the little things that make a big difference”

 

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

I never tried to make massive changes or do massive things all in one hit. 

I just did lots of little things, but I did them CONSISTENTLY.

So out of all the habits that help you build your business, the number 1 habit that will help you reach your goals is:

Do the little things – but most importantly, do them CONSISTENTLY!

Habit number 2 makes habit number 1 even more powerful.
And that is: Think before you act!

The more you have on the go, the more valuable your time becomes. So the last thing you need is to go off half-cocked and try to achieve your goals by flinging spaghetti at the wall or putting in loads of hours and hard work.

That’s hope and hope does not get you far. A plan however, will.

In fact, being a mum who could only work during school hours (and during soccer practise, lol) meant I HAD to be super choosey with what I actually did. This was a massive gift!

Stopping to consider WHY you are about to do something and whether it’s worth it – or even necessary – will always be time well spent.

Habit Number 3 is: 

Always look for a more effective way.

When I was running my finance business, it was the norm for brokers to do home visits. Everyone expected it. You’d see your clients when it suited THEM – on their lunch break or after work.

I decided that was super ineffective and so I rented an office and stopped going out to see clients. I made them come to me during school hours instead.

My colleagues warned me this would kill my business, but guess what?

IT DOUBLED MY BUSINESS!

I was able to see more clients in a day and got more work done between appointments which means I could serve them even better. I was no longer wasting hours in the car each day and having to ask my mum to babysit.

My business was more professional and my clients respected my time more (and I no longer had to explain complex financial concepts while competing with crying babies and leg-humping dogs)

It’s truly not about working harder – it’s about working smarter.

In fact, one of my biggest income days to date was $25,000 earnt while I had my feet dangling in the pool in Bali.

It’s so easy to give in to our ego & just be busy being busy.

But busy is not the aim. Being ‘efficient’ is not the aim either – and neither is being productive’.

Who cares if I’m getting lots done or doing it really fast?
The only thing that matters is if I’m getting the RIGHT stuff done. 

Are the things I’m doing having the biggest and most positive impact possible?

The word for that is EFFECTIVE.

So be EFFECTIVE, not productive (and certainly never aim for busy!)

When you put these 3 habits together, you build an eco-system that helps you build your business with the least amount of effort in the fastest possible way.

These are the habits of 6 and 7 figure CEOs who value their time and carefully consider all their actions.

When you also have a strategic and well designed PLAN to apply these habits to, the result is quite magical.

This is how aligned & sustainable 6-figure+ businesses are built.
