Re: Eight Ways Coaches and Holistic Practitioners Benefit from Intentional Focus - http://www.taigoodwin.com/intenti...
"One of the best things I ever did for my business was learn to walk away when it was not a good fit. Being really clear about my own brilliance and who I work with best has skyrocketed the results. When someone is not a good fit, I don't leave them hanging. I'll help them get their next steps figured out or refer them to someone that is a better fit. That way it is a win-win for everyone." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: [Book in Progress] Success Without Significance is Meaningless - http://www.taigoodwin.com/success...
"Tai - Yes! I lived that life of "success without significance." Back in my corporate days I had fairy tale success, income, prestige, travel, etc. but I was not fulfilled. I knew that there was something more I needed in my life. I also knew that if I stayed in that job longer, I was teaching my son to be a slave to money vs living a life truly on purpose. I couldn't do that! I left that job a number of years ago and started Calahan Solutions, Inc. I am so grateful that I listened to the "God nudge" that told me everything would be ok. Today, I love the clients that I work with and the work that we do to get their message out with power, grace and ease. I have the blessing of seeing people truly step into their bigger bolder more brilliant version of themselves and it is so fulfilling!" - Stephanie LH Calahan

"Awesome tips Tai and I can say with certainty that you practice what you preach. I've seen you do all of these at one time or another. I also love that you start by reminding people that while Facebook has many users, they still may not have your VIP clients." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Friday Fun – Fabulous Fashionistas - http://www.evelynkalinosky.com/friday-...
"The pictures of these women make me smile! Good for them! I always say that you should get rid of anything in your closet that does not make you feel fabulous. For me that has never been anything strapless or a miniskirt. Never comfortable, so just don't feel fabulous in those particular styles. However, for those that feel fabulous, why not? Age is a number. I find it interesting that society feels the need to tell women what to wear. When I became a mom 12 years ago I was just hitting 30. It amazed me the number of people that suggested I dress different because I was "now a mom." It's silly." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Running on Empty – Refueling Your Tank - http://dianemarkins.com/2013...
"Great post Diane. It is easy to get stuck in those questions and find discouragement. It's in those moments that I reach out to God and surrender. I surrender my fear, doubt, self-criticism and any other thing that I'm holding onto that isn't helping me. Great list of simple things we can do to get back into action." - Stephanie LH Calahan

"Awesome post Alex. I have read many posts on this topic over the years and I love that you gave the communication business case for why someone would want to change what they say in conversations. I help purpose-driven solopreneurs (coaches, holistic health practitioners, authors, speakers, and other amazing visionaries) create ease and more profit and purpose in their businesses by providing them with proven visibility and business optimization strategies so they can unleash their brilliance, live fully, experience their truth, serve with impact and prosper everyday." - Stephanie LH Calahan

"Great ideas Tai. I have used all of these at various points and they are my stand-bys when I get stuck. My favorite is the "tell them how to do something" and yet it is one that I have not used lately. Thanks for the reminder." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Are You Ready to Launch Your She-Ro’s Journey? - http://www.evelynkalinosky.com/blog...
"Evelyn - I would agree that there are many things that we hold onto that no longer serve us. I call it having boundary issues. Often those boundary issues are a result of not being clear about the prosperity you really want in life. Taking a leap of faith is scary so we often choose to settle rather than face the unknown. I have taken a few different leaps of faith in my life, but your post brings up memories of when I left Corporate America well over 10 years ago. I was "successful" there. I led a team of about 300 associates, made a large 6-figure salary, amazing benefits and traveled to Fortune 50 and 100 clients all around the country. I had all of the trappings of success too. Yet, I was unfulfilled. I was stressed out and often getting ill at work and then going back to work. (I'm a recovering work-a-holic.) It took me 3 years to finally make the leap and it was my son that helped me make the decision. At the time, he was an infant. The corporate consulting firm I worked for had..." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: How To Manage and Encourage Comments - http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/article...
"Great reply. No worries about me feeling bad on this end! When I first started my blog WordPress wasn't really used all that much. It was fairly new. TypePad at the time was the platform that a number of people were using. Seth Godin still uses it today. The conversion is something I'm not looking forward to. As a former systems developer, I know what a pain that can be. So, we're building out a good strategy before we divan. That plus the fact that I want to do a total rebranding means that this project is not Going to be a short one. Are you finding it difficult to comment on your blog via my iPhone though. It's not letting me put in hard returns or go back and correct typos." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: How To Manage and Encourage Comments - http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/article...
"Excellent points in this post Mike! I've been guilty of not following up with comments fast enough, because my entire commenting system is not that fantastic. My current blog is on TypePad and you can't control what type of commenting you have. I'm looking forward to moving over to WordPress where I have more ability to do that. I also need to build better habits. I'm curious why DISCUS and not CommentLuv. I've heard a number of really good things about it." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Renewing Your Mind: I Smell the Bread Rising - http://www.kellyjyoungblood.com/2012...
"I agree with Joanne about being present. It is something that I practice every day! While I don't bake bread (gluten free bread just isn't that good) I do make my own chicken stock. When fall rolls around every year, you will often see my stove heating up with the wonderfully warming smell of stock cooking. Just yesterday, my son came into the house with one of his friends and they were discussing that I make my own from scratch. I then heard my son say, "it just feels and smells like love in here" and it did. Every day we can look around and be amazed by the glorious miracles that surround us. Some of them are in our kitchen. :-)" - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Renewing Your Mind: Worth Reading Wednesday: Christian Votes for Various Candidates - http://www.kellyjyoungblood.com/2012...
"Kelly - Thanks for sharing these posts. I really like and appreciate it when people share their reasons behind their positions and decisions in a way that allows open and honest discussion. I have gotten rather frustrated with one-sided discussions that shut out opinions and belittle the person with the opposing view. "As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand." Romans 14:1-4" - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: How to Engage on Facebook – Leave No Fan Behind - http://sociallysorted.com.au/how-to-...
"Hi Donna - It is often the simple solutions that people skip over, yet are the most effective. Thanks for sharing this post. Two months ago I had a similar conversation with a private client because they were frustrated that their page did not have as many likes as their competitors in the area. They were totally stuck on what to say. I reminded them that they had fantastic "people personalities" and they should just be their fabulous selves. They took their "gift for gab" to their keyboard and started doing exactly what you mention above. Their likes on the page have quadrupled and their engagement has gone up over 70%! This strategy was critical for them because they have a mobile food truck business. Social media is how their customers find them! Thanks again for the simple strategy that works." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Can Your Coach Have a Breakdown? - http://allisoncrow.com/can-you...
"I'm sorry to hear that you have had a crappy day. I'm sorry to hear that your dog has been sick. (I've been there lately. Few different ER visits for mine. It is heart breaking.) I'm thrilled that you are strong enough to acknowledge that you are human to your clients. I'm thrilled that you are practicing the self-care and self-love that I'm sure you teach your clients. Your former coach is wrong. (I had one of those too from my corporate days that shared the same philosophy. Forgive her. She was just telling you what I'm sure someone told her.) Being authentically you -- warts and all -- is the best way to serve your clients. I know that I want to work with real people not super humans when I select a coach and I know that my private clients want the same. Open transparency only helps. Be well and many blessings." - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: Take a Break from Coffee – Not a Coffee Break - http://iqtell.com/2011...
"I can appreciate your story Haim.  I too was once a multi-pot-a-day coffee drinker.  I dropped coffee about 3 years ago for my health reasons and I'm glad that I did.  Your point about organization and getting the right sleep is really key.  The one other point I'll bring to the discussion is your water consumption.  Many people don't realize that when you drink caffeine you can get dehydrated.  Since our brain is largely comprised of water, dehydration causes foggy thinking and difficulty making decisions.  Then, we jump for another jolt of coffee, thus making the circle go round and round.  I have found rather than jumping for coffee, I go for a great big glass of spring water.  Works every time!" - Stephanie LH Calahan

To your success! Stephanie" - Stephanie LH Calahan

Re: sooner than later, you'll need an organized system to run your business - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"Amos - I could not agree more with the suggestions you have made today. Getting your business processes in place sets you up for success. Yes, it does take time, but the process of figuring it all out helps you mentally as well as physically. No matter if you are a one-person show or you have a business that has many employees, unless you have business processes in place, you may find the business growing "out of control." The activity of organizing and writing down key activities and when they need to get done is critical to your ability to grow your business and thrill your customers. I have found that many business owners do one of two things where business processes are concerned: -Don't have them -- They think, I'll have time later to get all of this down.-Make them too complex -- They over-engineer the processes and ultimately do not do them because it is too complex. As you are thinking about the list of processes you need to get active in your business, implement one..." - Stephanie LH Calahan
