Habit stacking.A cool name.An even cooler concept.A couple of weeks ago, I talked about the different types of habits -- goal-, system-, and identity-driven habits -- that James Clear discusses in his book Atomic Habits.In that article, I mentioned that we want to start with identity-driven habits because they inform our goal and system-driven habits.Today, I wanted to talk about an easy way we can build those habits into our daily lives. And that is habit-stacking (also called habit chaining).The idea is that we add the new habits we want to build onto the habits we already have in

Over the weekend, I was reading a summary of the book, Atomic Habits by James Clear.And I was reminded of a concept that is super useful to growing a business AND helping clients get results.Clear talks about how there are three different types of habits...Goal-Driven HabitsSystem-Driven HabitsIdentity-Driven HabitsGoal-Driven Habits are behaviors we put in place to reach a specific goal. Let's use a new coach as an example. She might have the goal of attracting her first client. For her, a goal driven habit might be to spend two hours on Saturday reaching out to her network of friends and acquaintances letting

It might just be me, but when the same message comes up 3 times in a week, I tend to think it's the universe telling me to pay attention.

The first time it came up this week was on a Coach Action Plan call. The coach was worried that if she changed up what she'd been doing that it wouldn't work and her work would be

Back in the day (aka the first few years of my biz), I engaged in a lot of activities that made me feel like I was making progress... but did nothing to actually move me forward. And I've seen a lot of new and struggling coaches make the same mistakes I did. So I thought it would be a good time to address some of them, in case you're making some of them yourself.  Here's what I've seen (and done)... Futzing with your website to make it perfect. You may think that this is uber important, but all you

I've been working on a webinar funnel for the past couple of months. And I have to tell you it's been taking a ridiculously long time. I used to do a live webinar every week, but I haven't done one in at least 3 years. When you do something every week, it becomes second nature. And you can't imagine that you'll ever forget how to do it. The problem comes in after you've been out of it for a time. See, I didn't create a playbook for it. A playbook is what's called a standard operating procedure in the
