Wanna be a rule breaker? Here’s the #1 rule to break when it comes to networking…

The Coaches Console is now a multi-seven-figure business (can I get a “woohoo”?!)—and I can tell you this: it’s built on a solid foundation of networking. Now, you may think you’ve got networking all figured out: go to an event, give a business card, take a business card, and voila! You’re building your connections, your network, and your company. Right? Wrong! There’s one major rule of networking, and I think you should break it, every time! Watch the video below to see what it is, and what I suggest you do, instead.

Now that you know what not to do at networking events, and how to ensure you leave each one in complete control of the follow up, you’re on the right track to grow your business efficiently through networking. Which means you’re also on the right track to improve your chances of booking sample sessions, growing your mailing list, and increasing your conversion rates. (So exciting!)

Next, I’d like to offer you a complimentary resource designed to teach you the step-by-step process to brand and launch your coaching business and generate consistent income.

How I maintain my energy when delivering a three day live retreat for our high end group coaching program

Transcript:

Hey, good morning! It’s Melinda here and I’m sitting out here in the early morning on my back porch, overlooking my backyard and I’m just taking it all in, because we just finished our three-day live retreat with our Accelerator Coaching Program. And I was asked many times throughout this program: “How ar you keeping your energy up?” Because not only did we meet and have sessions from 9:00 to 5:00 every day, but then after one day we all loaded up and went to Kate’s house and had a cookout and dinner. And in the next day we all loaded up and came to my house and had a full-moon fire circle and dinner and we connected and had a lot of fun. And so it was non-stop, consistently for the past three days. And people were asking me: “How are you doing this? How are you facilitating the sessions? How are you then still staying connected with us and keeping your energy up?”

And here’s my secret: it’s all about the self-care. People over rate and overlook this and you cannot miss this one thing. And here’s how I do it: I make sure, before this ever begins, before we ever come into this event I have done self-care and I have filled myself up so much that I am giving of the overflow with my energy, my emotions, my brainpower, so that when the event starts I’m from the place of overflow, so I have a lot to give right from the beginning. And then throughout the event I’m doing little significant things to maintain my self-care; it might be take five minutes, go out, walk outside barefoot in the grass and soak in some vitamin D and sun, it might be taking a few dance breaks privately on my own and moving the energy through my body so it’s not staying stuck anywhere. But I maintain my self-care throughout it all. And then I have already planned my self-care afterwards, so I know I don’t have to worry about being depleted because I’ve got my self-care plan in place, so when this is done I’m taking care of myself to rejuvenate again.

So that’s today. Our live event ended yesterday, I had my team over here for one final debrief digestion and ritual last night, we were here until about ten o’clock, and now today, tomorrow, Monday – complete self-care, total relaxation, juvenation, doing that which lights me, up so I can bring myself back to overflow. So when you maintain your self-care you can maintain your energy even when you’re on or delivering. A lot of the facilitators and teachers that I’ve been around, they do it in peaks and valleys; they’re on, give, give, give, deplete, deplete, deplete, then they crash and burn. And they have to be disconnected, they can’t interact with their people. And a lot of times I hear other teachers and facilitators say: “Well, after I’m on the stage I have to go away and I’ve got to recoup and I can’t be around anybody or else they’ll suck the energy out of me. I’ve got to protect my energy.” And my belief is that when you practice extraordinary self-care in the
midst of what you’re delivering, what project you’re working on, what job you’re in you can be on because you are taking care of your energy and yourself.

So I just wanted to share that with you as I’m in the midst of my self-care. This is the only work I’m gonna be doing, but this was really heavy on my heart and I wanted to share this with you, because I think a lot of people can benefit this. So remember: self-care is not a reward for what you do or a project completed; it’s a requirement for what’s to come. Let’s self-care be on both ends and throughout everything and you’ll maintain your energy. Alright, I got to go do nothing.

Hello there!

Today I want to share with you some profound words that my father-in-law shared with me when I first met him. Something he said all of his life, and when he did, he kind of shook my world, changed my world, and it’s still true some 12 years later. And I used this in my business, in my life, in my relationships, with my family, with absolutely everything. And the words he said to me: “You get what you tolerate.”

At the same time he shared that with me I was like: “wow, that is liberating, right?” Maybe you’ve heard me talk about this. This is so important, right? You get what you tolerate. Not only is it important, but it’s also freeing and it kind of sucks! Because now you have to take responsibility for what’s in front of you. I want to share three quick things with you today that you must stop tolerating. Not only in your business, but most likely also in your life.

The first one is: doing everything manually. A lot of entrepreneurs have this belief when they’re first getting started; that they’ll just kind of do it on their own, do it manually. They reinvent the wheel every time with every prospect and every client. And the only thing that has you doing it’s working harder, working longer hours and getting way stressed out. You can leverage people, tools and resources to create automation, integration and streamline your business. So be careful what you’re tolerating when you’re doing everything manually and reinventing that wheel.

The second thing that you’re tolerating: limiting beliefs. Now this one’s tricky! You’ve got to get connected to a community, because they’re gonna reflect back to you pretty quickly when you’re buying into limiting beliefs. A lot of times you don’t even realize that you’re doing it, you don’t know that you’re doing it, so having that community reflected back to you, you can call it out quickly, stop tolerating, change those beliefs, set you off on a free path in your business and your life.

And then the final one is – how do I say this? Well, I can’t say this nicely… You’re putting everybody else as a priority in front of you. Especially as women; especially as mom entrepreneurs. It’s also true for the guys. But one of the things that we tolerate is we think we have to take care of everyone and everybody else and everything else. And then we come last, and our business comes last. The more that you give of your business, the more it can take care of your family. The more you prioritize yourself, the more you have to give to your family, your business, your friends, your colleagues. So stop tolerating that you’re on the bottom of the list! Get yourself on the top of the list. Give of the overflow, and everything works better, smoothly and it’s way more fun.

So remember those words –  I’m gonna be sitting on your shoulder – you get what you tolerate.  It’s freeing, kind of sucks, but ultimately, it’s liberating. It’ll be a secret to your success.
