question

LIVE IN THE QUESTION is a state of mind that is creating radical opportunity for me right and left.

How can I get to a 7 figure income working less than 20 hours a week?🤔

How can I lean out, get more muscle, and have more fun all at the same time?

QUESTIONS are leading the way for me.

A question that doesn’t have an answer yet CAN TAKE YOU A NEW PLACE you have never been.

If I focus on what I already know, then I’m gonna end up with something that I already have.

But I want increase, so I’m asking to go where I haven’t gone before.

I want money I haven’t created yet.  I want parts of life that I’ve never lived in before.  I want to love in a way I haven’t experienced love before.

So the question HAS TO LEAD (you get me?!)

I’ve been strategizing with a potentially big leader (super big) for my team and we are negotiating the terms.  When I sit down at the table with her I’m thinking “How can WE BOTH get all that we want out of this — more than we expected?”

When you ask a question, answers you didn’t see or know before have an ENTRY POINT into your space.

Buddhists talk about beginner’s mind: the state of openness that doesn’t know.  This is what leads to MORE.

Ego mind–the “I know” mind– is my least favorite to hear about.  Really? You were born of the cosmos and you came from the Gods.  You be been here like 5 earth time minutes.  You *can’t* know.  And You’re so tiny, you don’t know what you don’t know, so permanently STAY OPEN MINDED.

Open to all possibilities

Ok, last story. This week I was meeting with a team member who had decided to let go of a major income stream and status rights in her country. “I can’t fit it in with my family schedule.”

She was right!

So I said, “ok, so we know what is NOT going to work, but there are 50 more options.

We only need ONE.

Let’s play.” We listed creative idea after creative idea and the doors flung open and her mind lit up and suddenly she saw CHOICES.

She stopped thinking: “I am going to lose this”, and started feeling EXCITED how she could keep it.

If something is right, and if it’s FOR you, there’s always a way.

STAY ON THE QUESTION.

Ask questions you don’t have answers to, live inside the space of openness and just keep asking

The cosmos created you.
You have much much more to
Learn, have and RECEIVE.

When You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling

 

“My whole career started because I wanted to put words on a page,” I told a friend recently.

It was a moment where you happen to speaking words that are a revelation to you while you’re saying them.

This whole thing started twelve years ago and I was loaded with fear, limiting beliefs, and insecurities. During small segments of time, I would write about the mess that I was. As my fingers pounded on the keys, I knocked down walls in my mind one line and one page at a time. I soon began to find a more graceful way to exist in my own life. That’s the “why” on my entire career –its natural point of origin.

Freedom.

Writing was the vehicle that drove me there. It took me to the depths of radical honesty to just put words to how I was living. It was like an invisible staircase would appear and I could find the way out.

After months of writing random pages, they lined themselves up into chapters and it was picked up by a publisher. The book turned into a radio show. The radio show turned into speaking requests. Speaking turned into coaching programs. Coaching turned into a wellness product community (doTERRA) And then everything got so fast, it became a blur. A following grew, a customer base grew, and I climbed to the top of the company! I was traveling here and there and money kept rolling in faster and faster and life got bigger. I found I was accidentally creating things that were bigger than my ability at times to manage. Some days I was leading it and other times it was leading me.

It was all born from desire to get out of a tiny existence where I was crawling through life.

It was a big victory for me, that first book, and those first miles of self-recovery. Perhaps my biggest yet because I remember how scared I was. I was a college dropout who spent years just followed my husband’s career and I thought “no one in the world is going to read this crap” and who do I think I am to even try this? I wrote it while I was terrified and sent it to a publisher (still terrified) and people did read it and the rest un-spooled after that.

I thought of all this after what I said out loud: “My whole career began because I wanted to write words on a page”.  Looking back, I can see when I stay true to that core, I am the happiest.  When I write to my readers, on my blog, and as I keep journaling and draft chapters of my next book, I am always renewed and filled with passion. When I get too busy for that, I die out.  When I work with entrepreneurs who feel burned out, I ask the question:

What got you started?

I ask them to go back in time to find ORIGINAL FIRE where they went to work just for that thing and nothing else. They always have a reason and they almost always light up when they think of it. Now, let’s bring it back into the center of what you do every day, I tell them. Adjustments are made, they clean out their overbooked schedule a bit, they make room for a little more self-care time and soon the passion comes back. Writing is the center nucleus of creativity for my entire work and it keeps me connected to core truth of who I am and what I’m doing. No matter how busy you are, when you stay connected to your core, you’ll always be home.

How to keep a clear mind

Hey, I know you’ve got a lot to do and you’re probably amazing at staying super calm, patient and clear minded all the time … haha :) but in case you’re like me and you need a little help with that, I’m going to give you my top 3 tricks to getting in your zen space, even when you have a lot to do!

Tip 1: Meditation

Three years ago, I hired a meditation teacher for about $150 an hour to my house and train me on his techniques and it was amazing.

About once a week :)

What I needed was DAILY practice, but I lacked the discipline and know how to give this gift to myself so when I found this app, I was ecstatic.

Mindfulness App pic

Did you know that in under 30 minutes a day, Harvard researchers found that meditation will actually chain your brain chemistry?

It decreases your fight or flight response and increases your rational thinking ability, the problem with most people is they feel they don’t have TIME.

This handy little app will give you 5 minute meditation options all the way up to an hour and even sends you REMINDERS throughout the day.

Imagine me in my office at 1pm, hours into my work day getting a reminder that says, “Are you present?”  I love it! It’s just what I need!

Tip 2: Peppermint & In Tune Essential Oils

So of course, you knew this was coming, an essential oil tool and the reason I love these babies is because they do the work for you!

A few months ago, I woke up every day for three days with brain fog.  I couldn’t get my mind clear and it was really frustrating me.  I’d look at my work schedule and I felt like my communication was hazy and losing impact.  On the third day, I was driving to pick up my daughter from her friends house and my mind completely cleared. I felt like the foggy glass I had been looking through was shining perfectly bright again.

“Wow, maybe a drive was all I needed,” I thought.

But then I remembered I put In tune on the back of my neck right before I left the house and I started to laugh.

Duh!  Why didn’t I use this oil three days ago?!

intune__14728.1458942873.1280.1280

That’s how I got my testimony of in tune and peppermint has a similar effect on me. I keep a roller bottle in my purse at all times and have been known to use it on strangers I’ve just met (with permission, of course :)

I love to diffuse peppermint and wild orange in my office during the day because it keeps me alert.

Think about that for a moment.
You might not feel like you want to put in that kind of effort or even spend that money, but how much are you LOSING because your mind is not working on maximum impact.

For me, an hour at work at my highest level is worth 3 or 4 hours of time on a lower energy level.  I can’t afford *not to do these things!

TIP 3: Create Your TOP 3

Top 3 is a little phrase in my community that signals us to the highest, most effective action that will yield the highest results that we want.

I keep notecards handy in my office and my desk, and haha, I’ve even been known to keep these in my bathroom vanity because for some reason, I get mad inspiration when I’m doing my hair.  Go figure, BUT…

let’s say I want to increase my sales for the month and that’s my goal.

Here’s what I WOULD NOT Do.

I wouldn’t walk around thinking, “I wonder if we’re going to make it.”
I wouldn’t check every single team in my back office and if I see any kind of lag, think, “Oh no, we’re not going to get there.’

Blah. Gross. That makes me want to vomit.

I would go to a much HIGHER place, of belief, radical positivity and massive action.

Here’s how to use TOP 3.

**Write on a note card what you want.  Mine might look like this:

We break $2 million in sales this month.  (I write it in the present tense as though it exists NOW.)

**Then, I write down my TOP 3 effective actions for me to do that will get me the highest results. Only 3. I focus all my energy on HIGHEST IMPACT.

I might write down…

Close all my new leads.
Do an enrollment webinar
Promote incentives to builders

I go all out on action, not stress.

During that time, here’s what I would NOT do.
Surf social media, bob around here and there with my activities.
Nope. I’d become super protective of my time and DO EXACTLY what was going to get me where I wanted to go.

It would keep my head clear and my emotions calm so I could use that energy to MOVE
(not to stress!)

So…there you go!

Remember, you really can do this.
You can achieve the big goals you have in your life and keep your mind calm and clear at the same time!

Madd love baby!

How to Brand Your Business to Get More Sales

FBAd3

For your business to succeed, you need a marketing plan that works (and works well) week by week.

Marketing does for your business what food does for your body.
It’s FUEL — and without it, your business will die.

FBAd3

Social media marketing can be a very effective way to market, it can also be
incredibly deceptive (and dangerous) to new business owners, who feel that posting
on a regular basis is marketing.

If it’s bringing in 3 or more new customers/members each week — then yes, it’s working.
But if you can’t answer YES to that immediately, then it’s really important to take a deeper look.

On Thursday, June 22nd, I am teaching a free workshop on BRANDING — but also branding as an important piece of a marketing SYSTEM that directly brings in new clients and customers. (Directly, as in this week, not perhaps, maybe, one day in the long distant future :)

http://HeatherMadder.com/brandclass

Any business owner that doesn’t have a clear and distinguishable brand online that is getting them regular clients and customers should be there.  So, if that’s you, I really want you there!
This is something anyone can learn and it’s easy to implement.

Effective branding has these three qualities…

1. Speaks directly to your true match clients and customers
2. It’s linked to a working system to gather information
3. It runs seamlessly throughout all the pieces of your business.

Also, it’s something you absolutely love and feel proud of!
You want it to truly represent you and what you do.

If you feel a little bit embarassed about your website, or you said yes to a logo
design you didn’t fall head over heels with, but it was all you could afford — you definitely
want to come to this class!

I will teach you my method to get branding that you LOVE for the best value so you are
truly proud of your business and feel it’s the real you!

Excited to see you there >> Http://HeatherMadder.com/brandclass

How to Turn Setbacks into Huge Advantages!

SetbacksThumbnail

There is so much you can learn from setbacks, which frequently turn out to be huge gains, but only if you handle them …. juust right. (If not, ouch!)

Some of my biggest gains came right after breakdowns, which woke me up to a better direction and led me to a course that was far better for me in the long run.

When you have setbacks, there is one thing you definitely want to avoid…I talk about that on the video… and three things you want to employ RIGHT away to make it through!

The One Decision that Took Me from $100k/yr to $600k/yr

Essential OIls Webinar Promo for Builders

The one decision that dramatically increased my income was to take 25 of my current coaching clients and introduce them to essential oils!

But I was so bad at it in the beginning, I literally stumbled into this business on a single burst of inspiration followed by waves of flaws. That’s the truth! For the first 18 months, I had no idea what I was doing.

The business worked anyway.

On Thursday, I’m going to tell you WHY.

You’ll learn about the business model and what makes it run–or not.

You’ll learn why people buy it again and again. (It has the highest repeat purchase percentages above any other kind.)

You’ll also learn how to incorporate it into what you are ALREADY doing. (No, you don’t have to be amazing at essential oils or have it be your main thing!)

I Have All The Tools I Need To Succeed

p4

If you’re creating big goals, but you never seem to get there, try this…
Instead of changing your whole life in one day, try changing your life DAY by DAY, because small steps, over time, create huge results.

For example, you don’t have to quit your day job to write your book. Instead, create a one hour window each day and do the most productive things with the hour you have.

When you make something too big, you put psychological weight on it and people avoid things that feel heavy to them (even they we want what it contains.)

Yes, you do want an overall vision, but nearly all of your focus is going to be spent on the daily steps.

When I am coaching my team, I ask this question at the end of our sessions: “What’s your Top 3?”

The Top 3 are the MOST PRODUCTIVE next-step actions that are going to get them where they want to go.

There’s a lot more about this very thing on my webinar >> How to Achieve Your Biggest Goals in 60 Days!

We cover a lot of ground in our calls together and I want TOP 3 to be fresh in their brain, so right when they hang up the phone, they have laser focus on the most productive tasks first.

A healthy business (and a healthy life, body, marriage, anything…)
comes from executing the Right Steps, with High Efficiently, Over time.

So, if you want to eat healthier, you might not want to go full-fledged organic over the weekend and throw out all the bread. It’s too much.

Eating healthier begins with one single decision in the morning to choose an apple instead of a doughnut for breakfast.

That one small decision leads to a workout at the gym to keep it going.

You have absorbed the feeling of being “healthy” so you flow to the actions.

Small steps get you close to the FEELING of something.
The feeling of something gets you into the motions.

Some people believe that if they can’t pull out scriptures and read for 30 minutes in the morning, they’ve ruined their connection with God for the day.

But five deep grounding breaths can get you tuned in.
Hey, one half breath can do it if you’re really focused.

Sometimes we get the idea that we need these huge swaths of time for our goals, but what we need are small consistent swatches of attention.

EXPEDIENCE is a heavenly principle.

It means hitting the target.
It is doing the ‘exact amount’ with high accuracy.

If you never get around to doing what you want, maybe you made it too heavy.

Or you have planned to do more than is necessary.

Ask: What are the steps for *me* amount needed to accomplish this,
and just DO THAT.

My Space

p3

I’m obsessed with high vibe, beautiful, calm spaces that feel AMAZING to be in.

So, here’s “the couch” in my office and the place where I sit until I am in my highest self.

I literally won’t plan my day, train my team, make decisions, or resolve conflict until I’m in my “highest self.” It’s a time for reflection or maybe, on occasion, a time out for grown ups, haha!

Each of these numbers represents a purposeful thing that brings high energy, every element is created with a purpose
