Hi Friend,

I have just put together a new Facebook Business page called 'Elizabeth Hagen Coaching' and I would love for your to 'like' it! On the page I have a gift for you of my eBook "9 Fears that Keep Your Business Stuck and the Strategies that Will Bust Them". Just go to the page, like it, and you will see the gift in the post on the page.

It's finally spring in South Dakota and I could not be happier!
It's been a long winter and I'm smiling as I look out my office window and see robins playing, trees budding, and the sun shining.

As Robin Williams said "Spring is nature's way of saying "Let's party!".

Is it time for a party in your business and with your clients?!

Love & Confidence,

It's spring and it's time to party!
Our granddaughter, Addilynn, turned 2 on March 8 and her parents threw her a party, of course!

I don't think anyone can party like a two year old! She had so much fun playing Hungry Hippo, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, opening her presents, and just running around.

But, I do think her favorite part was the cake as you can see in her picture.

It's spring and I think we all need a party. It's time for a fresh start in your business and the way you think about your business.

Friend, have things gotten stale?

Are you tired of the way you attract prospects?

Would you like a new way to attract your past clients to work with you again?

What about throwing a party?
** Look for a meeting room. Could be in a hotel, coffee shop, place of worship, etc.
** Invite prospects, past/current clients, vendors, advocates - the more the merrier.
** Have fun decorating in spring colors, balloons, party favors
** Give a short presentation welcoming your guests and sharing how your work can give them a fresh start this spring
** Have them play a 'get acquainted' game to get to know each other
** Have prizes for the guest who came the longest, is wearing the best pair of shoes (ok, I just love shoes!), etc.
** Offer a spring promotion inviting them to work with you.
** These are ideas - put on your thinking cap and have fun with this.

It's spring and it's time to party!

Go outside, relax, and think of a way to have a spring party for your business.  It doesn't have to be the way I outlined it for you - there are many ways to celebrate with your prospects and clients. 

As my spring party I'm offering a 3-hour workshop in Minneapolis on April 11 called "There's a Confidence App for That:  3 Aps in 3 Hours to be Fearless and Extraordinary". Read about it here.  We are going to have a blast!

My Theme for 2013:
My theme this year is 'Full Throttle Wide Open' and every time I face a fear, or doubt myself, or am tempted to do less, etc. all I have to do is say 'Full Throttle Wide Open' and I jump past any fears and doubts. You can't live or do a business full throttle wide open and be hiding!

How can you take the ideas in this article and go 'full throttle wide open'?

Post at my blog what you are going to do for your spring party!

Big change in my business!

I recently celebrated my 13th year in business and have loved every minute! I started my professional organizing and speaking business in 2000. My business evolved when I wrote my first book in 2005, and in 2008 I started working with business coaching clients.

Since 2008 I've loved publishing every issue of my Growing Your Business with Confidence newsletter for women entrepreneurs.

This is your last issue of Growing Your Business with Confidence!

In May things will change again with a fresh start in my business. My goal now in my business is to create a place for women who want to make something great happen in their work and life.

Starting In May I will be publishing one newsletter and it is brand new! The brand new
SavvyBIZ newsletter is going to be a fresh spot in your e-mail inbox each month! 

SavvyBIZ is for all women who want to grow their business, practice, cause or create a movement.

If you are thinking of starting a business, want to grow your business, you have a non profit, or you are a leader in your PTA, MOPS, or other groups you will want to be a part SavvyBIZ community in May.

Look forward to SavvyBIZ in May!
To keep receiving great tips, tools, and strategies to grow your business in your inbox you don't need to do anything! As a current subscriber you will be moved over the new
SavvyBIZ newsletter subscriber list.

I know you will love the new look, feel, and information in the
SavvyBIZ newsletter, but, of course, you can unsubscribe at any time.

Friend, thank you for taking the time to read the 'Growing Your Business with Confidence' tip and I'm excited to help you accelerate your success. Of course we want to grow our business and make more money, but let's not forget - the busier we are the more people we get to help. And the happier our clients are the more they will tell others!
