Does the idea of meditating sound woo woo wah wah ridiculous to you?
My friend I hear you! I used to think it was a total kaka waste of time…
I thought meditation was just for hippies, not business owners.
But a few years ago I found myself stuck at the same level of income after 5 years of owning my first business (an accounting & bookkeeping firm).
I tried every action step imaginable but nothing helped me break my income barrier.
And then I read this article from the Harvard Business Review that said meditation made people 77% more likely to resist distracting urges…
“Meditation helps our ability to resist an impulse, which determines our success in learning a new behavior or changing an old habit.…
Let’s get real here – being an entrepreneur can be HELLA scary sometimes!
I don’t know about you, but I get scared almost everyday.

My fear boogeyman used to make me feel like total kaka with thoughts like…
- What if everyone hates me and what I do?
- What if I end up a total loser failure?
- What if I go broke and homeless pursuing my dreams?
- What if my business is just plain stupid and worthless?
Have you ever watched a video online and been really distracted by the background?

I see this all the time…and it can really take all the power out of your videos.…
I often wonder why more non-profits don’t use video in their fundraising efforts?
Or why more entrepreneurs and bloggers who give back to non-profits don’t make fundraising videos to help support those causes?
According to the Online Publisher’s Association, people are 64% more likely to make a purchase after watching a video.
Can you imagine what that means for fundraising?
As a blogger and entrepreneur who is so blessed to be doing what I love, an important part of my life is giving back to places that feed my soul.…
Before I started doing video my blog was a ghost town.
I think the only person reading it was my Mom (love ya Mom but you’re a biased reader).
At the same time, I was not exactly getting loads of requests for advertising, sponsorships, or business consulting given that no one knew who the heck I was.
So I started video blogging…or vlogging. And people started to finally take some notice.
