These 5 strategies could make ALL the difference in your business

These 5 strategies could make ALL the difference in your business

I don’t recommend a lot of things, but there is a must-attend event I want you to know about.

My friend Denise Duffield-Thomas is holding a free live online class this Tuesday, April 17 at 6PM Eastern — and I REALLY want you to be there.

There are three reasons why.

First of all, Denise Duffield-Thomas will totally transform your money life for the better.

That’s no exaggeration. She’s widely regarded as the go-to money mindset mentor for women entrepreneurs who want to ditch their old money stories and habits and start succeeding financially — while having an easier lifestyle AND a bigger impact on the world.

In only a few short years, Denise has created a multi-million dollar enterprise from scratch (while raising a young family!). She’s an award-winning speaker, bestselling author, and has influenced the lives of tens of thousands of online entrepreneurs through her books, programs, and other transformational materials.

Secondly, this is not your ordinary webinar.

Denise’s down-to-earth style is incredibly refreshing, especially considering she runs a 7-figure business and has a huge online following. One of the things I love about Denise is that she lays everything out in a very transparent, easy-to-understand way. Plus, she really walks her talk and walks alongside those she teaches.

Third (and most important), what you’ll learn could be the difference between success and failure in your business.

I’m not saying that to freak you out or be overly dramatic. You may have noticed, however, that not everyone is successful in business. One of the key factors that Denise has identified (and built her work around) is that your money mindset can absolutely determine whether you’ll be one of the ones who “makes it” in business or not.

That’s why she’s created this live event, where she’ll unpack her “Top 5 Strategies To Upgrade Your Money Mindset.”

Reserve your seat right here (it’s happening this Tuesday, April 17 at 6PM Eastern time).

I had to share this special event with you because I suspect that, like many other women in business, you want both financial success AND to make a difference on the planet.

And Denise’s message is pretty clear: when you’re doing well financially, then you can help more people. It’s not just about the money (though her strategies will definitely help you make more of it!) but about stepping into your role as a wealthy, empowered leader in your business and life.

This message is so timely for where we are as a society right now, and it’ll apply directly to you in your business, too (whether you’re already successful and want to get to the next level, or are struggling with overworking and underearning).

Click here to reserve your spot in this game-changing live webinar.

You’ll discover the 5 strategies entrepreneurs like you can use to upgrade your money mindset — AND you’ll learn how you can get Denise’s help along your money journey, and join a movement of thousands of women as we change the way we think and feel about money – forever.

Go ahead and register for the webinar even if you can’t join live, because there will be a replay (but you can only get it if you register!).

This simple, proven roadmap will lead you to wealth

This simple, proven roadmap will lead you to wealth

We’ve been sold a lie.

We’ve been told that if we just follow our dreams, pursue our passions, and throw ourselves into our great work, things will all work out and we’ll become successful.

Honestly, though, even though passion can take you far… business success is often more about the practical matters. For instance, did you know that one of the TOP reasons small businesses fail is simply because they run out of money?

(NOT because the owner “lacked passion” or didn’t work hard enough.)

I’m not here to ruin your day with that fact, but we need to get real if we’re going to succeed in business. Better yet, we need to get smart, and we need to come together as women (more on that in a minute).

So… what if someone were to basically hand you a roadmap that could show you, step-by-step, how to take care of your money sabotages (so your business doesn’t become a statistic)?

What if, in fact, there were a simple, proven (and even fun!) way to transform your money mindset, breakthrough your money blocks, and start attracting wealth and abundance?

Great news: there is. And my friend Denise Duffield-Thomas is generously offering it today in a free training video she’s just released. Denise is quite literally THE go-to for money mindset in the online business world, so when she creates anything new, I’m all over it.

If you haven’t heard of Denise Duffield-Thomas, you’re totally missing out. She is a 7-figure business owner, an award-winning speaker, a bestselling author, and a money mentor to tens of thousands of online entrepreneurs.

(She’s also a mom and wife! So, perhaps like you, she pretty much wears a cape.)

I’m particularly excited to share Denise’s training with you, though, because she’s covering a really powerful topic: money sabotages — and more importantly, how to fix them, along with a step-by-step roadmap to attracting more abundance into your life.

“Your Map To Wealth” 

The truth is, we all have money sabotages. For most of us, they just run in the background, preventing us from having the wealth and lifestyle we really want (and deserve) — but we don’t notice they’re there.

With Denise’s training, however, you’ll learn how to zero in on the specific ways in which you sabotage yourself, so you can quickly shift your habits and start seeing results in your life in the way of more income without more work.

In fact you’ll get, for free, one of the most potent exercises Denise uses in her Money Bootcamp — which has helped over 4,000 women clear their money blocks, transform their money mindsets, and collectively earn millions more in income, all while having a lot more joy and ease in their lives.

You won’t want to miss out on this free training, which lays out Denise’s entire (proven!) Money Bootcamp formula to wealth and abundance.

In fact, I recommend you go right now and watch the video, and then download the “Map To Wealth” workbook so you can begin taking steps right now to having a more abundant business and life.

 Get free access to the complete “Your Map To Wealth” right here.

Now more than ever, we women need to come together in community and support each other’s growth and success.

By sharing Denise’s valuable training with you today, it’s my intention to make a positive difference in your life and in the world. I hope you’ll take advantage of it, and pass it along to other women who need to hear this message right now.

I know that the “Your Map To Wealth” isn’t going to be up for too long, so you’ll want to watch it right away so you don’t miss out on Denise’s unique Money Bootcamp process and the powerful money sabotage exercise you’ll receive.

I highly encourage you to go watch it now!  

That time I went to New York and almost got stuck

That time I went to New York and almost got stuck

One of my favorite things is to travel for pleasure and for business and this past week, I had the opportunity to go to New York to hear Selena Soo and Kimra Luna speak about the impact of publicity. And I was excited to hear Farnoosh Torabi and Kirsten Taggart as being part of the expert panel.

Petra Monaco and Kimra LunaMy travel up wasn’t as easy as I would have liked. My first train was delayed because it got stuck behind a freight train and then we got stuck with the second train because a tree was on the tracks and so we sat and waited for 45 minutes. I was already feeling behind schedule and now I was really behind schedule. But still excited nonetheless to go to New York.

And after getting to the hotel, changing clothes and getting a bit lost in New York City, I have made it to the event in time.

Petra Monaco and Hannah DixonAnd I was thrilled to meet one of the coolest Brit’s that I’ve been online friends for quite some time. I love meeting and connecting with people that I have engaged with online, it’s being able to really put the personality to the real life thing and know they are who they say they are.

And during the event, I was able to ask a question on how to use my story as it’s so massive to me and at times filled with craziness but I walked away knowing I can make an impact.

I would love to say that the return home was as easy going (even with the delays) but far from it. I arrived at Penn Station at 5:45 only to discover that my train and all trains to Charlottesville were canceled. Holy Batman. This was not starting off very pretty at all.

Petra Monaco at Penn StationSleep and food had been minimal due to the crazy schedule I was on during this trip and I didn’t even make time to take a shower. Never again, also in the future, I will check travel arrangements before checking out from the hotel, I could have stayed in bed for a few more hours!

I don’t know if you can tell from the photo but I was already exhausted and not looking forward to spending 24 hours at Penn Station in order to get home. I bought coffee and sat for awhile, talking with family and keeping the world of Facebook updated on travel shenanigans.

But low and behold at around 9:55 I looked at the departure screen and saw a familiar city that was only an hour or so from Charlottesville. Could it be that I could at least get closer to home?

I went to the ticketing agent and voila made the changes to head into Richmond instead and spending the night at Penn Station was avoided. I have to say there were moments where I felt like the mom from Home Alone, trying to get home only to be detoured and maybe even losing my mind.

In the end, I arrived in Richmond and was met by my family. Home Sweet Home

There was definite relief in getting home and a bath to relax me and some of my muscles was a welcoming relief!

I passed out by 9:30 and slept a solid 8-9 hours. And now I am still recovering from the travels a bit, it’s like you have to plan an extra few days to just do nothing! But I couldn’t wait to get this post up!

Did you ever have to face spending the night at an airport or train station? I would love to hear from you!

A look back on the month of February 2018: The Rebel Shine Summit

A look back on the month of February 2018: The Rebel Shine Summit

This month has gone by like a whirlwind with lot’s of learning and taking imperfect action. Every December and January, I sit down and intuitively map out my personal and business goals, and this year was no different.

I don’t always stay the straight and narrow course, however, I started writing my next book at the beginning of January and then had the brilliant idea to put on a summit.

Here’s the thing, sometimes you have to follow the crazy ideas that are coming to you, even if they aren’t in your original plan.

The second week of January, I announced I was looking for Speakers for the Rebel Shine Summit. I reached out to a few speakers I thought would be an amazing fit for the message, and they totally were. What I was not expecting was me being able to book 23 speakers with signed agreements in 3 days.

That’s the power of the message and taking action even if it feels crazy scary.

By the time promoting of the Summit arrived, I had 25 Speakers lined up and recorded all of them. Not only did I have the best time, but from a technical aspect, everything seemed to be aligned perfectly. Sure there were a few hang-ups but they were minor with little stress.

2018 Rebel Shine Summit

What have I learned?

You can totally create a Summit in less than 2 months if you are focused and take action. Sometimes even with your goals and plans all mapped out, detours become the next best thing because you get to stretch yourself in ways you haven’t thought about before.

But this is where the beauty of being a Rebel, Renegade or a Rule Breaker comes in. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want it.

You don’t have to wait – EVER!

It’s a good idea to have some strategy behind it and know what technology you will be using and how you will be presenting the Summit to your people.

I used membership platform and that was brilliant. Because now they have a forever home.
I used Zoom to record the conversations. I found when interviewing globally it’s one of the best.
I used Canva for Social Media Images because it’s easy to use.

What will I do differently?

Next year, I am giving myself a little bit more space for the interviews. Recording 3 interviews a day for 5 days was a little bit insane for this introvert. But it was worth every energy I spent on this. By giving me the time, I can space the conversations a bit more and still feel like I have plenty of time to focus on my other projects I am working on.

So if you are interested to be a Speaker for the 2019 Rebel Shine Summit, get on the waitlist so you can be the first to know when applications are open in October 2018!

What were some of my results?

In the end, without FB Ad’s, 160 people joined the Rebel Shine Summit. I am calling this a win! Even if only 20 people would have signed up, I would have felt ecstatic! For me, it was way bigger than just people signing up and making money.

It was about me

  • Taking imperfect action on an idea that I had and not talk myself out of it
  • Being visible to new people who have never met me before
  • Giving you a vision of what IS possible if you acted instead of waited

The feedback was amazing too!

The passion of the topics was flying and the conversations were “Rich and Rewarding” according to one listener!

And while the Summit is officially over, you can still get access to the amazing conversations that transpired!

And if the Summit wasn’t enough goodness, I squished my income goal and that feels incredibly amazing too. Here’s the thing, I hardly talk about money for many reasons that are personal.

My mission and the work that I do have very little to do with me bragging about how much money I make, but me feeling so freaking excited that you are getting into the action towards the life that you’ve been dreaming about.

Life is about embracing your own Inner Rebel, because she is waiting for you to say, okay, I am ready!

She’s waiting for you to say:

Enough is enough.

I am tired of the frustration and the struggle, and I am ready to create the life that feels good and amazing. You can keep listening to the voice of safety and conformity, or you can take a chance on your ideas and dreams.

The choice will always be yours.

And this is what the Summit was about!

Amazing people sharing their stories and journeys to own their own power, unleashing themselves into the world and elevate their lives in a way that doesn’t always feel good in the moment but in the end is the best thing you could ever do for yourself.

  • Listen to the conversations with an open mind and an open heart.
  • Believe in what is possible for you when you choose the path that’s calling you.
  • Trust your intuition that every moment has value even if it feels like shit at times.
  • Know without a doubt that you have it within you to be, do and have what you want!
How to use Journaling to cope with life changes

How to use Journaling to cope with life changes

Something I know to be true is that change is constant and the way you respond to it matters. Not all change is bad but any kind of switch in your life can still cause you stress. Allowing life to toss you around and remaining at its mercy simply keeps us stuck and can make it harder for you to remove yourself from an undesirable situation.

Journaling is definitely a method I support and found incredibly useful during times of strife. I would like to say I embody journaling every single day, but that isn’t the case. But it is definitely my number one go-to method when facing any kind of challenge or problem. Take a look at some of the ways that something as simple as journaling can help you to cope with those big life changes that seem insurmountable.

What Is Journaling?

A journal is different than a diary. In a diary, you write about the events of your day. It’s merely a chronological record of what you experience throughout life. A journal is different is a tool you can use to record your feelings on those significant life events. There is power when you put pen to paper, not only does it provide a therapeutic space, you can coach yourself into moving through the challenge.  For a consistent mindset practice it is helpful to do this part of your morning routine, but even taking the time to jot down your reactions to a particularly stressful one-time event can do you some good.

Benefits of Journaling

Writing in your journal can help you get through times of change in a myriad of ways. By getting things out of your mind, you’re able to clarify you’re them and to make better sense of your thoughts and feelings. You’re taking the time to process events and to break them down into segments, such as cause and effect. Doing so lets you visualize what happened and gives you a better sense of how to improve your situation. It also clears your mind and frees up the cognitive space needed for implementing practical solutions. Here’s the thing, when you’re stuck in your own head and dwelling on the negative, it’s nearly impossible to make actual progress toward setting things right.

When you write it down, you can begin to prioritize the parts of your life that are most important to you through this form of processing. Finally, journaling gives you a record of how far you’ve actually come because you can see what’s worked for you thus far and what hasn’t. Seeing your progress is a strong motivator to keep going.

Types of Journaling

There are all kinds of journaling methods you could try. I’d like to highlight some that I believe to be particularly useful when it comes to coping with change. First, a simple gratitude journal can be a good place to start if you find you need to improve your attitude. Writing down what you’re thankful for and fortunate to have is a quick way to begin to feel more empowered. The phrase I like to use is “I am happy and grateful that….” and I will include current things I am grateful for and things I am working towards as if they are already in existence.

Free writing is good for an emotional release. Just begin writing on a particular thought you’ve had going through your mind. As you begin to expand upon it, patterns will emerge that you may never have expected. This is a fantastic strategy for processing emotions and generating solutions. Even keeping a planning journal or agenda can be useful if you need a little motivation to get things done. Taking even the smallest proactive step can help to overcome the inertia that can set in with the depression and anxiety that often comes with times of uncertainty. Something I want to mention about free writing, you will find yourself resisting and NOT writing it down alas censoring yourself. This is not the time or place for you to do that however because this is only for you and not to be shared on social media!

This is just a quick synopsis of how journaling can help you to cope with unexpected changes in your world. Use these suggestions and incorporate your own when you’re feeling stuck in your reactions to difficult situations. You’ll find yourself moving forward and coming up with solutions in no time.

And I believe that you will feel relief, excitement and recognize just how much in control you are in your life.

2018 Rebel Shine Summit is a hit with anyone ready to embrace their Inner Rebel

2018 Rebel Shine Summit is a hit with anyone ready to embrace their Inner Rebel

If you would have told me 3 years ago that I would put a Summit together, I would have looked at you like you are crazy. I am an introvert and this can make it challenging for me when too much peopling is involved, but I decided that this would not stop me achieving my mission!

So at the beginning of the year, I had this idea to interview people for a project and then it literally fell into the thought of “Why not put a Summit together?”

Technology doesn’t scare me and I have some good things in place, the only thing I needed was speakers, oh and setting a date for the summit.

And before I knew it, I had a date set in place and posted on Facebook that I was looking for speakers and within 3 days, I kid you not, I had 23 speakers lined up – booked and speaker agreements signed!

Let me tell you that whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, putting a summit together is no small feat and from my research on the interwebs, most recommend a 3 months strategy. But if you know me, then you know I take action on the ideas that excite me to no end.

What attracted my speakers to the Summit?

If I had to guess it’s the message of it all:

It’s time to rise above from what is holding you back and embrace your inner Rebel!

2018 Rebel Shine Summit

Now that everyone was scheduled, the interviews were rolling out one by one, sometimes three in a day. I didn’t get much else done because the moment everyone was booked, I got sick. Go figure, right?

Anyway, I did the important things in my business and then focused on taking care of myself. By the time January 30th, came around I had 25 speakers for the Summit and everyone was interviewed.

And I am so excited to share this with you for Free!

Why do you want to join the Summit?

Because it is your Time to Embrace your Inner Rebel!

The topics covered on this summit are

Your best year
Own your power
Unleash yourself
Release
Imagination
Self-Care
Elevate your life
Attitude of Gratitude
Back to Basics
Opportunities
Vulnerability
Evaluate your Life

And if you read the first letter of each topic down, you will see that it says “YOU RISE ABOVE” because to me that is what embracing your inner rebel means. It’s saying no to conformity and saying yes to doing life – and business – the way you are being called to do it.

It’s time to squish the doubts and fears and for once in your life put yourself first. Gone are the days where everyone comes before you – and no we are not discounting being a partner or a mom.

But let me ask you:

  • When is it your time?
  • When is it your time to follow your ideas and unleash them in the world? When is it your time to take care of you?
  • When is it your time to take care of you?
  • When is it your time you say no to frustration and overwhelm?
  • When is it your time to elevate your life and own your power?

For 12 Days you will be able to listen and watch 2 interviews per day – 3 on Day 8!

We start on February 12th and end on February 23rd, 2018!

It is time you embrace your Inner Rebel
