I changed my mindframe today.

January 28, 2016

I didn't wake up with the usual energy this morning.

I have so much on my plate (don't we all?). I do not have my trunk show calendar where I want it so I know I have to really dig down and book...but I didn't really feel motivated for it. I also didn't feel like going on a run with Daisy but I committed to self-care this year and exercise is one of those things that just can't be put aside.

SO...to keep myself entertained while running, I listened to TWO recorded HO Booking Blitzes from last week (12 mins total) and guess what, I'm now ready to make as many calls as it takes to fill up the calendar to where I want it.

Even though I've been a stylist for over 6 years, listening to words other people say to book is extremely helpful and always welcomed. Hearing THEM say it sounds so easy so why shouldn't it be for me? It is that easy. I just need to focus with intention and do it.

All it takes is:
  1. getting your mind wrapped around what dates you want to book
  2. having your list of people to contact
  3. embracing the dedication to pick up the phone and book

The energy in your voice is so much more effective than just posting an offer online, sending a text or email--hard to read but true.

I should have taken a picture before the walk so you could see the difference in facial expression but here's how I felt when we were done. My body was worked and my mind was fresh and reinvigorated! Daisy was quite happy too.

Are you ready to take charge of your business and DO something about those shows you'd like to book? Would you like to earn $500 for two shows? $1200 for 4?

To find those quick, easy, & informative recorded calls that got me going, go to:

Stellaverse>Calendar>Coaching Calls>All Stylist Business Blitzes (International teams, you can find your recorded blitzes in your lounges in Tools & Resources>S&D University>Training Calls)

I particularly liked Jan. 20 and Jan. 21.



There is still time to book and hold shows this month! You can also make calls TODAY for February. Don't wait until February to book it. And my advice after years of going through winters with S&D, book 2 more than you'd like to hold. Mother Nature often rears her ugly head and if you have a goal of income, give yourself the insurance that you'll get it!

Have a great day!
