Keep it simple and impactful to get the results you want

Published about 1 month ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

It's easy to get all excited when you're starting something new, like a side hustle.

You dream of making it big like the people you see online.

You invest in all the fancy tools, create courses, get ready to scale, and leverage your time in anticipation of the hundreds of clients and customers you expect to have.

Only to discover it takes a lot more than you thought.

It took me years to learn this expensive lesson. But when I did, I decided to streamline everything and focused on just one thing - helping women 1:1 stop stressing about money.

I got rid of all the fancy tools, multiple lead magnets, websites, podcasts, webinar launches, workshops, email courses, e-books, online programs, etc.

Now, I just focus on being helpful and supportive to the women I engage with on LinkedIn. I share my thoughts and experiences about overcoming financial anxiety and creating a happy and successful life.

Although it seemed like a 'waste' to get rid of all that I'd created, it was a necessary process to learn the important and obvious lesson:

There's more value in keeping things simple and impactful than trying to do everything and overcomplicating things.

It's also a lot harder to keep things simple and impactful.

It takes a lot of experience, wisdom, and discernment to know what to remove and still have it be useful.

If you find yourself overwhelmed doing all the things to get the results you want, take a moment and ask yourself,

  • What am I trying to achieve here?
  • What can I strip away to simplify?
  • How can this be easier?

Going for big goals (like building a business!) will take more than you expected. Don't make it harder by overcomplicating it and eroding your impact.

Good luck!


P.S. What are you building or working on this year? Let me know, I'd love to hear about it!

Hello Reader, Do you know what a dream career means to you? making the money you need for the lifestyle you want? doing work that matters and uses your talents and strengths? giving you the time you need to pick your kids up from school every day? If you want to design a dream career, you have to know what matters to you, so you know when a career supports what matters to you or takes it away from you. Most people won't give this much thought. The default is to pick the job that pays you the...

Hello Reader, Ever feel confused like you don't know what to do next in your career? Should you stay in your job or leave? Should you ask for a pay increase or keep quiet?

'I think I want to drop out.' My son says to me. He's just started a coding assignment in the military. Out of the 7 selected for this unit, he's the only one without any coding experience. 'I'm slowing everyone down. They're all ahead in the assignments.' When things get hard, it's natural to feel like giving up. So I asked him, 'Is this something you want to learn and do?' 'Yes.' he said. So I said, 'Then you'll have to be prepared it will be hard in the beginning because you're trying to...
