Today’s business tip comes from the simple reminder that if we all just work smarter, we won’t necessarily have to work harder. But this is easier said than done. So how does one go about working smarter when they are constantly caught up in the day-to-day minutia of their business? Well, when I ask any of my clients the following questions, it usually helps set their mindset in the right direction. So read the following tips to help determine if you can work a little smarter too.
1. Hire experienced help. – You get what you pay for. Be willing to pay for good help and in return you can rest assure they are doing a better job than you would if you were doing it yourself. Which leads us to number 2.
2. Don’t do it all yourself. – You are an expert at your business, but that doesn’t mean you are good at every aspect of owning your business (not busyness). If social media isn’t your thing… don’t do it. Employ or empower one of your team members to go hog wild. Of course, supervise the content, but don’t beat yourself up if you just don’t like to get on Facebook. Realize it is necessary, but not necessarily for you.
3. Leave once in awhile. – Can your business run without you? If not, assess what you have done to create this co-dependency and begin to take strides in freeing yourself on a (can be small) regular basis.
4. Who is your IDEAL client? – Can you answer this? Or do you just take any warm-blooded person who calls or walks through the door. Could you specify who it is you work best with and target that particular audience?
5. Charge what you are worth. – People like to pay good money for good service and products. Focus on your delivery, being more personal, followup and then… charge more.
Do you have an idea for a new business, a service, a book, a start-up or perhaps even a career path change??

Whatever the song, whatever the saying, the truth remains that we all have the exact same amount of time in each day, but it always seems like we are fighting the “hands of time” to get it all done each and every day.
I have discovered some great tips to help you work more efficiently in your business, how to make more family time, and to become more present and effective all the time in your daily life.
First and foremost, people have been requesting this of me for a long time. And now, after many years on TV and then just as many years publishing magazines, I have decided to bring you the best of what I am living and learning each and everyday through business, entrepreneurship, writing, family, children, yoga, travel, humor, food, coffee (now you know where my brain is) with a weekly dose of Juli TV. One of the best things I’ve learned as an entrepreneur is that there are a lot of people out there trying to go at it alone, researching, updating, building websites with little to no one supporting their journey.
And its not just for the business owner or aspiring entrepreneur, THIS is for everyone! It’s about doing it together, creating a community around being happier, healthier and successful in pursuing your passions, making real positive change in your life that helps you serve in being the best YOU possible.
With interviews of all kinds of OMazing people along the way. This REALLY is my favorite part. I will be attending some great conferences all over the country this summer, some perhaps in your neck of the woods, and the cameras will be rolling.
So, I promise it will worth it to subscribe. Let’s do this together!
Please share your comments below on what you want to see first. So excited to bring this to all of you and I’m honored you will watch and share when you feel connected and inspired to do so.
Sound off… I am all ears!
The holidays are a stressful time for many while they budget extra expenses into their lives for gifts, travel and the like. But maybe there’s more going on with your money relationships than the annual visit from Santa Clause. Maybe this holiday season, gift yourself the power to address your financial future.
What’s your relationship like with money? We all have one.

You know those people, the ones who seem to connect with just about anyone anytime anywhere – and without effort. For those of you building your businesses and careers through that human connection (who isn’t?), it is an integral part of your growth to be able to connect. But do you really need to connect with everyone? The answer is simple and powerful all at the same time.
Here’s the deal. It’s all about the focus you put into it.

A not so fun topic at first, but when addressed, the impact is HUGE. This is where it all begins usually though, with all my clients. Where are you at with yourself? How are you feeling about you?
If you want to change your life, you don’t need to change the world. You just need to change yourself and the way you interact with the world. Adopting a positive self-image is not about feeling good and expecting everything to work out just fine. A positive self-image is about believing in your more
