Overcoming Writer’s Block

WRITERS BLOCK: something few entrepreneurs and executives discuss. Most people think of “writers block” as something that novelists and journalists struggle with, but they aren’t the only ones who write for a living. In fact most business people in content/communication based business write far more copy than the average book writer.

Almost 70% of my work day consists of writing. Writing content, emails, social posts, web copy, press releases, and massive to-do lists. Some days, I just don’t have the writing ✍️ spirit. When you own your own company, you can’t just say “oh I’m not feeling it today, so I won’t.” There are personal deadlines, client deadlines, and editorial deadlines to meet. So I’ve come up with a few techniques to unblock and unlock my inner writer.

1. Select your smallest writing project on your “have to do today” list.

2. Set a timer. As a former TV newscaster, we were on deadlines so tight that we may of had to submit a story for air in 10 minutes!!!! (Yes it was stressful AF but exhilarating). So set a timer as though you are a journalist covering a breaking news story and you have to get it on the air STAT. For something 400 words or less, set your timer 20-30 minutes depending on complexity of task (ie. Press release Vs email). This technique makes your heart rate and blood pump, since you have created a race. Plus it makes the task less annoying sounding, since it’s just 20-30 minutes. You can do anything for that long ! (Well maybe not hold a plank)

3. Pens down when timer goes off. Now, you may not have created your final version, but your damn close. So now, all you have to do is edit, which is far easier than creating the initial structure.

What’s Holding you Back from Making Massive Money, the Steps to Uplevel your Abundance Mindset EP084


To be a successful entrepreneur is 90% mindset and 10% strategy.

If you have been following me awhile or listening to my show, you know I love to use analogies as teaching tools. So here it goes….you know how fitness experts will tell you that you can’t out work off a bad diet at the gym? Or that abs are made in the kitchen? Same is true for entrepreneurship. You can’t out strategize a shitty mindset.

In fact, you could have the best product or be the best coach in the world, and if you mindset isn’t on point and managed all day every day, you will likely not achieve much success or keep it.

This is how I lost almost a million dollars that I had in the bank by the time I was 30. Not from lack of talent, tenacity, or drive…but from a crap low-vibe, low self-worth mindset. My motivation for teaching money mindset to millions of people is because I know the answer to true financial freedom lies in our own damn minds.

Celebrating the WINS!

Nothing feels better to me than chillin’ on warm white sand, looking out at crystal blue waters, in a fun foreign country. I went to Belize 🇧🇿 about 2 years ago to celebrate my mega personal development transformation. My entire life as I knew came crashing down, forcing me to figure my shit out and shine or slump into victim mode and sink.
☀️
I chose the harder path, TO SHINE. It took a full year of stripping my self raw to my soul, for me to start seeing and feeling the huge life shattering transformation I made. This self work is not for everyone, in fact most people quit when the discomfort of facing our feelings and insecurities goes on too long.
☀️
The gifts that come from doing the work and taking massive action, feel like mini miracles happening all around you. If you feel stuck or miserable in your life, do the work. You deserve to shine, and the best version of you is worth working for.

☀️So Belize, thank you for celebrating with me. You will always hold a special place in my heart. For it was the first time in my life I truly celebrated me and my achievements. 💜, Tiffany

Going from Food Stamps to 6-Figures in Three Years with guest, Dr. Amanda Barrientez, Founder of NFA Coaching EP083


I have a prime example of why it is so important for us to show up loud, proud, and as ourselves on social media.

Most of us entrepreneurs are so busy creating content and doing #allthethings that we forget to take a moment and put ourselves into our ideal client’s shoes, and how they go about searching for solutions to their current problems. We start making assumptions on how clients find coaches, or wellness products, or fitness plans…and it’s important to be reminded of the basics.

The guest I brought on for today’s show is my real life example of successful content marketing and branding. You see, I hand-select and approve of all my podcast guests. I only bring people on who are going to teach you, enlighten you, and hopefully entertain you.

I can’t even recall what I was searching for on Instagram one night, but I came across Dr. Amanda Barrientez’s profile and I saw in all caps “NO FUCKING AROUND COACHING.” If you are a regular listener you know I love a well-placed F-bomb. These four words in her profile caught my attention enough to look further, and I loved what I saw. A woman who has been through a lot of crap in her life and has made a huge turn-around and now helps others do the same.

Dr. Barrientez is the Founder and CEO of NFA Coaching. She went from being on food stamps to making 6-figures in just three years. She is passionate about helping people thrive in their businesses and reach their max potential.

Get Clear on your Dream Lifestyle

 

I’ve been manifesting and experiencing my dream lifestyle for 15 years now! Truly I’ve been manifesting my entire life, but I didn’t have a name for what I had been practicing.

Now my lifestyle looks different than when I was 25, but our dreams evolve as we do. The point is, I continue to be crystal clear on what I want my life to feel like and look like. That clear vision allows me to set a clear intention, and this hyper-focus helps manifest my desires.

By 27, I decided that I only wanted to fly in first class for flights 3 hours or longer. So that’s what happened. Now did I break out a credit card and spend 10k on an international first class flight, hell no. I was smart and crafty about it and used airline miles to upgrade my self, along with a slew of other tricks I learned. Executing your dream lifestyle doesn’t have to break the bank. If you want it badly enough and are open to new possibilities, creative solutions to meet your goals will appear.

So whether you want to live near the beaches of Southern California like I do, in the country on a farm, own a Ferrari, travel the world, or stay at home with your children, YOU CAN! It starts with getting crystal clear about the lifestyle you desire, the more details the better. Then stay open to infinite possibilities that can get you to your goal. It will happen, in fact, it is happening for you now, but let’s get there faster. Are you with me????

4 Tips on How to Improve your Email Open-Rate and Grow your Email List Immediately EP082


You spend hours each month crafting perfect catchy and key-word heavy emails for your list, only to experience a less than 10% open rate.

This can be frustrating as hell, wondering if it’s even worth all of the time and effort.

To make matters worse, you hear #bossbabes on social media touting the importance of growing and nurturing your email list and a majority of their sales come from email marketing. WTF!!!!!

In full transparency, I built a 7-figure business without any email list. Truth be told, I could have an 8-figure business if I started building my email list from day one, 11 years ago. So with my second company ProjectME with Tiffany Carter, I was determined to learn from my mistakes. After all, I have been building and nurturing giant emails lists for years with mega corporate clients. So I know how it’s done, and I know what works and absolutely doesn’t.

So you all can feel a sense of relief, the average open rate ranges from 7% to 17% depending on the industry. Most people will open an email from their bank or doctor’s office over a service based business like computer software or your cable company.

But you don’t follow me to learn how to be average, you follow me to learn how to make massive cash and change in people’s lives. Today’s episode I will spill the tea on all things email marketing.

You Are Loved

 

In case you momentarily forgot, you are loved regardless of how much money you make, how much you weigh, how many followers you have, how many IRL friends you have, and how productive you are on any given day.

You are loved as a human being not a human doing. The BIG and most important question is: do you love yourself regardless of all the above? It’s ok if your answer is no, mine use to be a big fat NO. What’s important is your awareness and honesty with yourself. If you answer is anything except “FUCK YES I Love my self regardless,” then there’s some inner work to be done.

If I went from a “fuck no” to a “fuck yes,” I know you can too and you deserve it!!! Love you, Tiffany

We are all Addicted to Something, if Your Life Feels Unmanageable, Out of Control, or Stressful, the Solution Resides within You, with Tracy O’Malley, World-Renowned Addiction Recovery Coach and Multi-Millionaire Entrepreneur EP081

We are all addicted to something. For some people that’s alcohol, for others it’s food, and for many it’s something they aren’t even aware they are addicted to.

I was one of the latter.

Working 12-14 hours a day 7 days a week and then going to the gym often twice a day, people were impressed with my “dedication,” “diligence,” and “hard work.” I was highly rewarded for these behaviors with money, compliments, and a seemingly super fit body. Truth is when you peeled back the layers, I was dying inside. I was actually just one step away from killing my self.

I was using my excessive working and exercising as an escape from dealing with buried trauma and feelings from the past…plus I wanted to avoid being alone and still with my thoughts at all costs. Being still and unoccupied was terrifying to me. Little did I realize that my focus was going the wrong direction, I was trying to run away from my self  to achieve peace and happiness versus run to my self.

Eventually like with all addictions I hit a brutal rock bottom. My ways weren’t working anymore, in fact they were causing more harm than any sense of relief.

So I was forced to surrender and get help, or die. By the grace of God, I chose to live.

I want you all to carefully listen to today’s episode with an open-mind. You will for sure hear some things you have never thought of before, and some things you need to hear. There is no one better suited to help you navigate your additions and “distractions” then my dear friend Tracy O’Malley.

When the going gets tough…

 

When everything seems to be so hard, so much work, and not much fun, we can easily lose sight of why we decided to go after our dreams in the first place.

This feeling of discontent and dissatisfaction is a sign that we have lost contact with our higher selves and our higher power. The good news is with a little effort and a heaping spoonful of surrender, we can get back into alignment.

I tend to land in this negative space when I’m trying to do too much out of a space of forcing and pushing, which is fear. I want my dream business to manifest quickly and I start thinking I can control that by frantically taking action. The action is great but not when it’s centered on fear.

Thankfully my body sends me clear warning signs (me getting sick) and thankfully I can recognize them and make necessary adjustments. This wasn’t always the case. I still slip into that fear mode, especially when I’m up leveling. That’s OK, I’m only human. Plus I get to share these nuggets of wisdom with all of you, which I pray will help you catch yourself too. Catching yourself is a far better outcome than quitting. 💜, Tiffany

How to Increase Your Sales without Being Annoying or Pushy EP080


Learn How to Increase Your Sales without being Annoying or Pushy.

Lesson number one is reframing your mindset from believing you are being annoying or pushy. Why would telling someone about something they likely need in order to improve their life be annoying? Would that annoy you?

If I had a hundred dollars for every person I’ve coached that had a fear of being annoying or pushy when promoting their product or services I would be well on my way to a net-worth of a quarter-billion dollars.

People feel this way when they don’t truly believe what they have to offer is going to help their ideal and potential customers, otherwise you would be shouting it from the rooftops (or at least on Instagram!).

Let’s get you out of feeling sleazy when selling and into the zone of feeling shameless.
