How to Name Your Business (My No-Fail 3-Step Formula)

Written by Christine Kane

This time you’re determined, dammit.

You grab your coffee. You sit down.  And you think the same thought that’s been plaguing you for weeks now…

“Okay, time to name my business. Let’s do this.”

And then?

Then, all the RULES rush through your head…

You know the ones…

Your business name has to be unique. Totally different.

7 Mindset Practices for “When the Dirt Comes Up”

Written by Christine Kane

A mentor of mine used to say that when a seed is planted, the first thing that comes up is NOT the sprout.

The first thing that comes up is the dirt.

She puts these heavy weights in my hands and makes me push them in various different ways to build various levels of strength in my body.

That doesn’t bother me so much.  I can play that game.

But just when I think I can’t push any more or lift another time, she says, “Okay, three more. You can do it!”
