Keep It Simple

One of the first writing rules I learned in journalism was KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid.

Meaning, keep your message simple, straightforward, and clear enough for a 10 year-old to comprehend.

Choose your words carefully; don’t use spelling-bee level words to sound smart or fancy, this blocks people from hearing your story, your message.

Most people get stuck at my “write so a 10 year old can comprehend it” line. Well did you know that all network TV news is written for a 3rd grade reading and comprehension level? YUP! Not because viewers are stupid, because simple sells and drives engagement.

Why do you think one of the top selling newspapers in the world is @usatoday ? Extensive market research shows that people love the colorful easy to read charts and graphs, plus the clear cut to the chase writing style.

When communicating your message for your business, and especially your sales pages, don’t overcomplicate it, use the KISS model. Watch your engagement increase.

We all have short attention spans now, with Info coming at us in 30 different ways…SIMPLE and STRAIGHTFORWARD stands out from the crowd.

Plus, people who use lots of fancy big words all the time are annoying 🤣.

Things I Wish I knew in my First Five Years of being an Entrepreneur EP154


Things I wish I knew in my first 5 years of entrepreneurship.

You guys, I was an entrepreneur long before it was cool, and before this whole #bossbabe thing, and #womensupportingwomen movement.

When I made the decision to start a side-hustle business and then quit my prestigious career in pharmaceuticals 11 years ago, I had one person professionally who believed in me, and one person personally.

Most everyone thought I was nuts to leave a high paying and high profile corporate career for a dream and a gamble. What they didn’t understand is that I had to, I couldn’t do the corporate grind and ladder climb anymore. I would rather had been a coffee barista then continue in that environment. Can anyone relate?

Those first five years in business were insane. It was the blind leading the blind, which left me making many mistakes, costing me tens of thousands of dollars, countless nights of sleep, and me contemplating quitting at least once a week.

This is why I’m so passionate about coaching all of you on how to make the money and impact you desire, doing what you love in a much smoother and more efficient way.

To help you avoid some of the big mistakes I made, listen to this episode, trust me you will save yourself thousands of dollars and thousands of hours just by listening.

How to Start and Grow a Successful Blog from Scratch, and Monetize it, with Guest, Lauren Jumrukovski, Popular Mommy Blogger and Author of “They Say, Not Your Average Parenting Book” EP153

You will never use your kids as an excuse again after you read this!

When you have been in management and an entrepreneur for over 11 years, you will have heard every excuse in the book. Everything from time, money, energy, kids, fur babies, traffic, and even Ambien (more on this crazy story later).

Making excuses is a way of saying, “it’s just not that important to me.” or “ I really don’t want ___________ badly enough.” People create these false stories to make themselves feel better about not showing up for them, their employers, their clients, or loved ones.

Then you add kids into the picture and everyone can give exhausted moms a pass, after all you are taking care of tiny humans 24/7. Even though this sounds like a more reasonable and socially acceptable excuse versus, “the traffic was bad,” or “ I don’t have money to start a business, it is still BULLSH*T.

An excuse has truth in it, that’s why it’s an excuse. This is why when you use an excuse enough; you can believe your own story. Mine used to be, “I’m too exhausted,” and I could justify the shit out of it to my self and others, UNTIL someone cared about me enough to call BULLSH*T on me.

Love yourself enough to call BULLSH*T on your excuses. Be honest with yourself, if something truly isn’t that important to you, that’s okay, if it is and you are covered in a layer of excuses, as yourself, “What discomfort am I avoiding?”

Today I brought on a guest to prove this point on excuses, Lauren Jumrukovski has a three of them, ages 1, 4, and 6, but she didn’t let that stop her from going all-in. Lauren is a popular mommy blogger of TheySayParenting.com, and now a published Author of “They Say, Not Your Average Parenting Book,” available at bookstores nationwide.

Wealth Tip With Tiff!

Somehow our society has made making money complicated as hell…when in fact it’s rather straightforward after you weed through all the nonsense.
$
On this WEALTH TIP with Tiff, my goal is to alter your belief around making money. To believe it can be simple and straightforward, with proper guidance.
$
To believe it’s difficult, hard, complicated, tricky….to make money is a MAJOR limiting belief, AAAAAND it’s a lie! Don’t blame yourself for having this belief, society, our education system, many marketers, and financial institutions want you to believe it’s complicated, so you will hire them to do it for you.
$
One of my top 3 goals of ProjectME with Tiffany, is to take the mystery out of making BIG money.
$
You can start your money-generating journey today, by believing that making great money is simple and achievable. Believing anything else, is keeping you stuck.
$
Second action you can take today, is to unfollow and stop listening to anyone who makes you feel like making money or staring a business is complicated. It may not be their intention, but their communication style just isn’t clear enough for you. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT for not “getting it” or “grasping it,” those particular people, books, podcasts aren’t the right teachers or mentors for you.
$
Third action you can take today is message me with any money questions. I read and reply to each one, and love helping you. It’s my honor to do so!

Managing the Toxic People in Your Life, When to Remove them, What to Say, and How to Heal from their Negative Energy EP152


Four years ago I had to remove almost everyone from my life, if I wanted to save my own.

The toxic people I had in my life were literally killing me (slowly), and I had been allowing it my entire life.

You see when you are raised in a highly dysfunctional environment; you get desensitized to unhealthy and toxic behavior. In fact, it becomes familiar, so in a twisted way, it’s actually comfortable to you.

So for me I was drawn to narcissists, sociopaths, and active addicts my entire life. Now I wasn’t aware of this subconscious attraction, I just thought I attracted messed up people because that’s all I was worthy of.

Then those sick people reinforced the belief that I was unworthy, so round and round the endless revolving door of craziness we go.

If you have anyone in your life right now, whether it be a lover, a boss, a “friend,” a coach, or a therapist that makes you feel anxious, nervous, confused, or exhausted after spending time with them….you have a toxic person in your life.

Now what Tiffany? Listen to this episode to learn how it manage it, when to remove these people from your life, and how to do it safely.

Press Pause

One of the most important actions I take on a daily basis, is pausing.

Choosing to take no action is an action itself. It’s actually more difficult for me and many others, than doing something.

Like when you get an crazy email from a client, or a hater comments on your latest post…the first instinct is usually to fire off some response…or to call 5 people and ask what you should say back or do.

That used to be me. Then I would obsess and spin about whatever all damn day, sometimes all week. Robbing me of my serenity, sleep, and productivity.

All of this self-imposed crazy making stopped once I was taught the art of pausing. The action of doing nothing. This is a tough one for those of us who are go-getters with high-achieving personalities. However, I’m telling you once you practice it, your life will change for the better.

When something or someone rattles your cage, take a deep breathe and press pause. Walk away from the laptop, shut the phone off, excuse yourself to the bathroom, whatever you need to do to remove the temptation to react, and remain in a paused state.

We can’t think clearly when we are reacting. So we owe it to ourselves, and even maybe the other person/people, to take time to do nothing, until our reactive emotional state settles down.

If I badly need to get my feelings out (usually anger) around this thing or person, I break out my journal and word vomit it all out. If I’m face to face in a situation, I’ll excuse my self to the ladies room, open the notes app on my phone and type out my anger, hurt, or shame.

Remember, just because someone wants you to respond to them quickly, doesn’t mean you have to. They are in a reactive state too, so it won’t go well by ripping off a reply.

Are you willing to try pausing?

Turning your Worst Traits into Assets, with Guest, Jeremiah Campbell, Multi-Millionaire Entrepreneur, Addiction and Abundance Mindset Speaker EP151


What are you convincing yourself of?

We have between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day, and it’s impressive how many people use a majority of those thoughts up, thinking of all the reasons why they can’t achieve the things they want in life.

“I don’t have credentials to teach other people what I know.”

“No one is going to read my posts or watch my videos anyway, I’m pretty boring.”

“I should have started my business years ago, now it’s too late, the market is saturated.”

Imagine if you spent this time and energy thinking of all of the reasons why you can do it, why you should, and why you will succeed, where you would be at today?

My professional guess is you would be busy doing the damn thing, making cash, helping the people, working for yourself, doing what you love.

The best way to retrain our thinking is with facts. Our minds can’t say, “yeh but” to facts and undeniable evidence.

This is why I brought on a former heroin addict turned multi-millionaire onto today’s show. He is real live evidence that anyone can change his or her current life status at anytime.

Jeremiah Campbell is a serial entrepreneur who has built several seven-figure businesses, but what’s even more impressive is he was able to become drug-free after a serious heroin addiction. Now he helps other addicts rebuild their lives and achieve their true potential.

Money Manifesting Mantra


I earn money easily and consistently. I am worthy of all the wealth I acquire.

Crucial manifesting tip: when you create money generating mantras, meditations, and vision boards, you MUST include and practice that you are WORTHY of this abundance. That you are WORTHY of making a shit ton of money and whatever else you desire, with ease.

When I first started practicing manifestation principles 12 years ago, I was focused on manifesting things, money, travel, parking spaces….no work at all on my self-worth.

So guess what happened?! I didn’t get all the things, the money, the success, but I lost 3/4 of my entire financial worth in 3 months.

I even held on to everything I manifested for several years. The more I up leveled, the more my buried lack of worthiness crept in. In the same year that I made 7 figures for my first time (before the age of 30), I lost almost all of it before that year was over! Truly because deep down I didn’t feel worthy of this abundance, especially any abundance with great ease and joy.

So for the last 3.5 years, I switched my focused from just manifesting financial worth, to manifesting great self-worth. THIS MY FRIENDS WAS MY MISSING PUZZLE PIECE.

Now that I have rebuilt my self-worth (with techniques I will for sure teach all of you), I am weaving back in all of my financial, business, and luxury desires.

Without an incredible sense of self-worth, success can’t be sustained or maintained.

Self-worth is the foundation for great net-worth.

Facebook and Instagram Advertising Made Easy, How to Know When it’s Time to use Paid Advertising EP150


How to know when it’s time to start using Facebook ads for your business…

First let me ask you a few key questions to help determine if they are A) necessary and B) if you are ready to take on that risk.

  1. Do you have proof of concept that people actually want to pay for your product and/or service? If your audience is organically (without paid ads) buying what you are selling consistently, then you have proof of concept that your niche audience actually wants your stuff. IF this isn’t the case, then before you waste money on ads, you need to refine your offer, your delivery, your niche, your product, and perhaps all of the above until you have consistent buyers.

Ads wont’ make people buy something, when no one is buying organically. Period end of story.

  1. Do you have a proven advertising customer conversation plan in place for how you are going to take strangers from the Internet, from seeing your Facebook ads into buying your offer?

Will you be advertising a free training, or advertising to an e-book and then upsell them to a course, cold-audiences wont buy a mid or high ticket item from someone they don’t know or trust.

  1. Are you willing to be patient and gamble with at least $100 per week?

All advertising is a gamble. There is no guarantee it will work, even if you hire me, or a top New York ad agency to help you create a great campaign. You have to be willing to test ad images, ad copy, and different audiences to until you find a winning combo for your niche.

Listen to this episode to hear my recommendations on when to start experimenting with ads, and the best way to go about it.
