    Podcast #216: You've Got More to Give!

    18/05/2020 Duração: 14min

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! We're SO CLOSE, but are we? Many states are open, opening and others are preparing for the re-emergence. What I have seen is people are READY to get out and BE OUT! And to be around people. But are you ready? In last week's podcast, my friend Chandra Medina shared some tips surrounding the continued theme of "purging" specifically focusing on purging negative thoughts and how to replace them with more positive ones. Yes, again, easier said than done, but even I had to use her tips! This has been a very chaotic time, so more than ever we need to catch ourselves, and continue to PURGE!  And... work on our attitudes and helping others do the same! It's not easy. People are chippy, anxious and ready to really understand WHAT'S NEXT! And, if you live in California like me, you may not fully understand!  How'd you do with purging your mindset? Did you like hearing someone else on the podcast? Email me and let me know! And now, listen in th

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Thank you for listening and sharing this podcast and don't forget to connect with me on Instagram, twitter and Facebook!  OMG! YOU MUST LISTEN IN as this week I did something I've NEVER done... I have a guest giving tips on mindset! Last week's podcast was about purging professionally, which plays off of everyone purging/de-cluttering your homes once we went on lock-down. So, I challenged you to do the same in your professional life! Sort through business cards, file folders, stacks of papers, binders and even contacts in your email and social media. How'd you do? Listen in this week as I share some of what I did, and, yes, I asked Chandra Medina a mental health professional and life coach to give tips on the "last purge" as we begin our "re-emergence".  Mentally, many people are having anxiety and want to stay "quarantined" and that's OK. However, at some point, we must re-open. And, we need to listen to Chandra and use her tips to

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Thank you for being here, listening and sharing this podcast with others. I trust you are healthy and DOING YOUR BEST! I hit a new record for downloads and appreciate you for listening! Where are you listening? Which platform? I'd love to hear!  Last week's podcast was about lightening the mood and having fun! Sharing funny stories that I've experience myself, seen and read from others.  And now... it's time. With all of the tentative dates and numbers and plans, I have felt like the first Spring flower that peeks out and gets hit with another hard freeze. So, let's prepare like we are the SECOND round of flowers!  We've all cleaned, purged and organized our homes, cabinets, closets, basements and more! So... why not prepare for the re-emergence in our professional lives? There is so much in our ENVIRONMENTS that don't serve us anymore. We just forget about things, emails, people, etc. Not saying that's good or bad, it just happens!

    Podcast #213: Finding Ways to Laugh

    27/04/2020 Duração: 10min

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Thank you for being here and for listening and sharing this podcast with others.  I hope you are all healthy and still doing your best to DO YOUR BEST!  In last week's podcast, I shared how I was "over it", tired of all of this - I had just hit a wall and wanted some sort of normalcy. Although this – whatever THIS is – will probably be part of our new routines. The "new for now", really isn't relative because what we had in our past is NOT coming back. Maybe part of it, but we all have to start looking forward! And, what popped into my head during my "I'm tired of this phase", was what I did during the 2008-2010 recession. In this week's podcast I share how I turned what people were expecting MORE of during that very stressful and bleak outlook into a light, interactive and REFRESHING time.  I inserted FUN and LAUGHTER into a what is normally a very report-driven event! People left the event laughing and continued talking about it f

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Thank you for being here, listening and sharing this podcast with others! Thank you for investing in YOU! I hope this podcast finds you healthy, and well that you are DOING YOUR BEST! I thought I was doing my best, until I went to the grocery. NO! Not to find toilet paper! You'll have to listen in as it was all part of the roller-coaster ride of emotions that we are ALL going through.  In last week's podcast I asked what new routine or habit that you're doing now that you realized you LIKE and will keep - in some form or another once we've been released from quarantine.  I did hear quite from quite a few people! Many are the same... cooking regularly / planning meals isn't as hard as I thought to slowing down and making time for family. We even borrowed some puzzles and well, kind of like it vs staring at yet another movie! And this week, listen in as I get share what I've been working on and how I have pivoted, and how it's gone.

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! YES IT IS MONDAY! LOL! I trust you are healthy and not totally confused on what day it is! Thank you again for being here, listening and sharing this podcast.  I'm doing my best... how about you? Remember from last week's podcast, I've translated "Hang in there" to "Do your best". In this week's podcast I talk a bit more about the extension of the quarantine here in California, at least in LA County so far. And yet, how others, including my sister are holding on that it will only be two more weeks. I'd love that as I'd REALLY like to go out for Cinco de Mayo! But, I'm prepared with my margarita and taco and dip recipes.  Yes, I believe some people are accepting the uncertainty and settling into the new routines and others aren't quite there yet. So many people I know have little kids and are figuring out how to be Mom, teacher, house keeper, chef, spouse and yes, some even still working full time! It's all still very SURREAL. Last we

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! I hope this podcast finds you healthy!!! I'm sure many of you are like me: stir crazy, bored and on a roller coaster of emotions... daily and sometimes hourly! I have decided to translate the common sayings. Instead of "Hang in there", I am saying, "Do your best"! So, I hope you are doing your best! TIME TO PIVOT. Last week's podcast was about PIVOTING. Dusting off something you've put aside or trying something new. For me, instead of just canceling my in-person workshops launching my online course, "How to Launch a Business in 90-Days" - preceded by the free webinar on Weds., April 8, "The 7 Steps to Launch a Business". I've heard from and read many posts from people that have pivoted in similar ways. How did you? What did you "dust off"? WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER And yes, there still are so many confusing posts and news reports. Stay inside. But wait, the inside air is more polluted than outside. And remember hearing our parents say,

    30/03/2020 Duração: 11min

    HAPPY MONDAY "Quarantined" MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! As always, thank you for listening and sharing this podcast with others. Yet another crazy-ass week behind us! How are you doing? If you’re an extrovert like me, you may be going a little more stir crazy than others. I’ll say it – I’M BORED AS HELL! In the last couple week’s, I’ve talked with people who are struggling with getting their kids settled into the e-learning, others who haven’t started yet as they were on Spring Break, so it’s coming! Haha… and those who are now unemployed, had to temporarily close their business and everything in between including friends who are nurses and doctors and even those who work for the Post Office. While I can still work – as I have been coaching virtually for years – this pandemic has greatly affected me as well due to many of my clients closing temporarily. So, we may talk, but not as often. So even I have asked WHAT NOW? I’ve found myself scrolling Facebook and Instagram WAY TO

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses. WOW! Is it crazy! Surreal is more like it. Last week was full of emotion, at least for me! I hope you are all healthy and learning a bit more about what it's like to be home-bound! As R.E.M sang years ago, "This is the End of the World as we Know It". Thing definitely are different. Whether you own your business or not... Life and Business are forever changed. The last few week's podcast's have been focused, ironically on Simon Sinek's book, "Start With WHY". And, it really is timely as as on now, we are all going to have to go back to our WHY, HOW and WHAT.  Listen in this week as I am honest about how I've felt, and how I feel now. And... THIS PODCAST STARTS YEAR FIVE! Can you believe it? How long have you been listening? Tell me and WIN! This week I share all the titles from 2016 to NOW! So... why keep going? Well, after this shitshow... ask that of yourself.  I look forward to hearing that you are healthy and getting back to your

    Podcast #207: What's The RESULT of All Of This?

    16/03/2020 Duração: 09min

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thanks for listening and sharing this podcast with others. Hopefully you are healthy and have toilet paper!  The last couple week's podcasts were about Simon Sinek's book that I recently finished "Start With WHY". Two weeks ago, I asked WHY you do what you do. Last week was HOW - the process. And yes, this week, as we all wonder how we will all survive this crazy-ass pandemic and the effects it is having on our businesses, I ask you to focus on the RESULT of your WHY... WHAT do you do?  This week I share my concerns and as a business owner and Coach... I am right there with you. I have a client who is in her first year of business and this is a very important time for production, and I've met two women who are about to open a business in mid-April. It can be easy to fall into the mindset of worry and questioning. And, I definitely won't discount anyone's fears right now. But, as a Coach, I am doing my best to help people stay focused on the future and suggesting every

    Podcast #206: HOW Do You Do What You Do?

    09/03/2020 Duração: 07min

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Thank you for being here, listening and sharing this podcast with others. I'm assuming you're sharing... how else are people finding me? Besides me being TOTALLY BADASS!  Yes, last week's podcast was about remembering or figuring out your WHY. Your purpose. Whether it's being in the industry you're in, leading the business you lead, or even own the business you own. WHY? This week I continue down Simon Sinek's path from his book, "Start with WHY".  The next step is really understanding the "HOW"... aka the PROCESS. The actions you taken to realize your WHY! In the book, Sinek says, "People buy because of your WHY".  Yes, there are people who disagree, and that may be you. You may look at two products or talk with two [or more] different people in the same industry and not have a CLUE what their "WHY" is, but you'll buy because.... and that "because" may be financial. But think about it. And, again, think about YOUR WHY.  And this we

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Thank you for listening, sharing and messaging me when you can't find my podcasts! LOL! In last week's podcast I asked you to rate your level of excitement that you have for your goals. Then, I asked you to make a note of WHY? Why you ARE or AREN'T excited about them.  Why do you think I asked that?  Listen in this week as I reference, as the podcast image suggests, Simon Sinek's book "Start With Why". I just finished listening to the audiobook and it's very timely with what some of the challenges my clients are facing.  Yes, as good as I am, we all still have challenges! LOL! And sometimes, personally and professionally, we need to go back to the beginning, the basics and remember WHY. So, listen in, and then email me or comment and tell me WHY! And, if you can't figure out your WHY, or you need help sharing it with others... email me, it's what I do! Have a great week! Cheers! Sandi

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Thank you for listening and sharing this podcast... and most importantly, investing your time into YOU! Last week's podcast [that doesn't look like it released on all platforms again grrr] was about ACCOUNTABILITY. Did you think about or try any new ways to hold yourself accountable? It's not always easy is it? And, like I talk about with my suggestions on focus with to-do lists, and priorities – there are many options – and you have to find what works for you! Listen in this week as I ask you to try something to check-in on your goals and why or why you aren't holding yourself accountable. This week I am asking you to DIG DEEPER so you can PLAY a HELL OF A LOT BIGGER! Cheers! Sandi

My MOTIVATION for doing all that I am doing.  Yep... MY WHY!  I look forward to hearing from you as well and, as always, if you can't figure it out, email me, let's do ONE session.

    HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thank you for listening and sharing this podcast and for your comments and input! On this day, seven years ago,  I decided it was time to FOCUS purely on COACHING and started Growing Forward! Fitting as today's podcast theme is about just that... FOCUS! Last week's podcast was me asking you "What's Next"? Many of you, including me had LOTS of ideas, got excited and did a great deal of research. I LOVE IT! I, myself, watched three webinars, have tons of post-it®notes of ideas on my door, and note pads full of concepts for an app, [YES AN APP!], an online course, and in-person and virtual via Zoom coaching accountability group. I heard from others that, “What’s Next” is “waiting on results from some tests”, another was “ramping up training”, and one other was, “creating my own mentoring program”! Then I realized, I needed to reel it in! How about you? Listen in this week as I talk about WHY I got you thinking about what's next and, then really... WHAT'S NEXT! And a litt

Cheers to you making it through the Holidays and celebrating! Last week's podcast [#196] was all about what are you CELEBRATING! The ONE thing that you kicked-ass on in 2019. Whether it was a mindset shift, a decision, or a goal - I'm confident you all found at least ONE thing, didn't you? This week I talk about the difference between Resolutions and Goals. I discussed it every year and I share why people fall short on them.  And, now it's time to CHOOSE! Your WORD OF THE YEAR that is! Listen in this week as I share the activity on how I chose my word, and the worksheet I createdthat I use with my clients.  Doing this activity will help you think deeper than just "choosing a word". I also talk about my conversation with my Mentee, Sherice and what she does with her WORD! It inspired me to think more about my WORD and how I WILL LIVE BY IT this whole year! The word you c

Thanks to listener Adam for choosing to listen to this podcast after he found the Top 20 podcasts article on Flipboard, and that Oprah and Tony Robbins share the list with ME!  Last week’s podcast was about ONE thing. One thing you would DO, NOT do, let go of, look forward to or even get caught up on during this holiday time. What did you come up with?  Listen in this week as I share what I heard from some clients and listeners and how powerful the number ONE really is! And then THIS week... WOW the last TWO days of December and 2019. It's time to celebrate! As you listen in, I share what I had written down on my FINISH THE YEAR STRONG worksheet, and what I am celebrating and why!
