Welcome to Elizabeth Hagen's Growing Your Business with Confidence Monthly Tip

Welcome to this issue of my monthly tip newsletter just for women entrepreneurs.  Each month you'll be receiving an easy-to-implement and very valuable tip or strategy to help you grow your business that you love.
If this sounds valuable to you then I'm looking forward to helping you to stand out, accelerate your success, and grow your business!
...and then you run.

My theme for this year is "It's Who You Are".  I wrote about how I picked this theme in my January 2011 "Extraordinary Results" newsletter and if you didn't see it you can read it here.

The key reason I picked this theme is that the phrase is part of a verse in a song sung by AJ Michalka in the movie "Secretariat". Here is a part of the verse: It's not how fast, it's not how far, it's not of cheers, it's who you are.  In darkest night you make your sun, you choose your race and then you run.

I want to help you 'run your race' in 2011.  You have chosen by your career your race but are you really running it?  Most people are not.

As I started thinking about new ways that I can run my race a ton of ideas came to me and ideas came to me about how I can help you.  This newsletter is one but there are many more ways that would give us opportunities to work together personally.  Just know that you are not alone in your business.  I am here and want to help you run your race strong in 2011!

I'm going to be very blunt but most likely the main thing stopping you from running your race is you. Yes, you!  All those doubts and fears crowding up your brain.  When your self-esteem  is attacked by doubts and fears your momentum stops and so do you. Your confidence is everything. Without it:
  • you won't charge what you're worth 
  • you'll be fearful in a selling conversation 
  • you won't ask for the sale
  • you'll retreat like a turtle pulling her head back in her shell
It may be time for a confidence boost!  Check out the complimentary teleclass I'm offering on January 18 where I will give you 3 Confidence Apps (see below).

It's time to run, .

Elizabeth's Assignments:
  1. Make a decision to get very clear on what race you are running. Mine is to encourage, nurture, and support an environment of excellence for all those with whom I come into contact.  What is yours?
  2. Take action by writing your 'race' down and telling yourself "In 2011 I AM going to run my race!"
  3. Stay focused and think of ways in which you can reach the people that so desperately need your help.
Let me know at my blog your race and how you are running it.
