What Your Mission and Vision Statements Can Reveal About Your Business

Posted on by Tracy in accountability, Alaska, business, Coaching, entrepreneur, focus, foundation, goals, growth, Mission Statement, Social Media, vision, Vision Board | No Comments

When I first thought of creating a business in 1999, I hired a business advisor to help me get the business off the ground. The first steps seemed so painful at the time. I had never owned a business and had many fears. The business advisor’s job was to see to it that I was serious about the business – that I was ‘willing to go to any length’ to make the business work, run, grow and succeed. Success was defined by paying my bills, growing a savings account, and enjoying what I was doing, both personally and business-wise. The first and most important task was the business plan. Today, in coaching sessions with my clients, I recommend that they create a Vision Board. The reason is that Vision Boards are creative and visual, and, essentially, your business plan laid out.  I use colors, i.e. markers, colored stickies, stickers, anything to create fun and flowing visions. My Vision Board for 2016 hangs on my office wall for me to see …

Mental Toughness Biz Vizion with Alaska Tracy Podcast Episode #9 Mental Toughness or an easier softer way is this week’s topic. Life is funny. I can be moving along on life’s balance beam and BAM! My head starts chattering! I would love to tell you it always happens after a major life event, but that is not the case. Remember to read to the end and download your free offering for the week! This last time was right after a Spiritual Retreat! You would think that one’s head would be rested, relaxed, rejuvenated or something to that effect… I had the opposite! My head was riddled with fear, thoughts of what the heck I am doing and the list went on! What does one do when feelings seep into our minds wanting to take over our bodies and keep us stuck in a state paralysis? I remember hearing for the first time, “feelings are not facts” …

Why Aren’t You Asking Permission?

Posted on by Tracy in Alaska, Anchorage, business, Coaching, communicate, Facebook, Grow, Social Community, Social Media, Success | No Comments

So… I guess you now know one of my pet peeves?  Yup, getting automatically added to a Facebook Group. I think that people don’t realize all of the amazing business growth opportunities that come with asking people to join a Group first.  Are you in this category?  Well, good news! I am going to share some benefits of asking permission before assuming everyone wants to be in your Facebook Group! Why create a Facebook Group when you already have a Facebook Business Page?   A private group can add value to a program or special product you have. It offers exclusivity to your potential customers or clients that could become buyers of whatever offering you have.  Maybe you create a Group for a certain event and do a Facebook Live from the actual event. No matter what your Group is for, you can set it to be private or public. …

The POWERFUL Gift of SAYING NO

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching, communicate, dogs, Facebook, Facebook Tools, growth, Social Community, socialmedia, Success | No Comments

Are you building a business and have not a clue how to meet people and get leads? Maybe you say yes to groups that meet once a week or once a month. Maybe this works for you and you love the socialization. Maybe you, like me, have a hard time connecting, you feel drained after these events, you do not feel that you want to refer some of these folks. However, you feel obligated. You ALWAYS feel obligated… so you keep saying YES. You say yes and your stomach churns. Voices run around in your head saying, “Why did I commit to this?” “Why do I go to this every week and feel this way?” “How else would I make connections?” “I must force myself to do these events and continue to hope for referrals.” I have news for you! It is ok to pause before saying yes. My rule …

Who will YOU Inspire today?

Posted on by Tracy in business, Coaching, Embrace, Facebook, Facebook Tools, Grow, growth, Uncategorized | No Comments

I often get approached by people that follow me on Social Media sites and they say: “You are always so upbeat and positive.”  “I love to read your posts.”  “Your posts uplift me and give me inspiration.”  “You are one of the most positive people I know.” Although I’m totally flattered by these comments, I am as human as you are.  I have a CHOICE each day.  Am I going to inspire and connect with others, or am I going to wallow in self pity?  Truth be told, I am all I think about. I have a huge ego, and it lies to me all the time.  It tells me lies like:  “You can’t, FILL IN THE BLANK.”  “You are not, FILL IN THE BLANK.”  It goes on and on with its lies. I have learned via amazing teachers in my life that I get to have a life that is …

Living Authentically Month 2

Posted on by Tracy in authentic, Coaching, communicate, Embrace, Facebook, goals, Gratitude, Grow, growth, Love, miracles, struggle, Success | 5 Comments

On April 1st, I made my Authentic Announcement taking my very own leap of faith. Although real estate had been good to me, I felt my truth calling me to help the business owner or entrepreneur find his or her own Authentic truth. Even two months ago, I had no idea that this would be my path.

What does your 2013 look like?  Have you set goals?  Put your Desires on paper?  Chatted them over with someone outside your business, or home? As a business owner of many years, I have found this to be one of the MOST important and rewarding tasks for me to do.  Over the last 10 years, I noticed that in the years that I failed to make this a priority, I floundered.  The years that I have had a Coach/Mentor and took the time to do the writing, I have been pleasantly surprised by my “end of the year” results.  MY plan of success this year is this:  I am in a coaching group with 50 others.  I have two accountability partners with whom I get to share weekly challenges, successes and joys!  This helps me to remain accountable to the goals I have written.  It also helps me to discuss …

Take Time Today to SEE the MIRACLE!

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching, dogs, exercise, miracles, play, timeout | 4 Comments

I almost missed the Miracle the other day at the Dog Park because I was SO BUSY! Do you ever have a million things (or what seems like a million things) on your plate?  Do you ever feel so busy you do not have time to stop and chit chat?  I do.  I think when I start feeling that way and telling others just how busy I am, it is a way for me to distance myself from others.  When I am chatting about how busy I am, I feel superior to others and eventually inferior.  Not sure if you can relate or not. I never want to be too BUSY that I miss out on what is really important in life.  I am hopeful as I share this story, you will be inspired to slow down and see a miracle today. Eddie and I show up to the Dog Park the other day. …

Running up the Hills of LIFE

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, Uncategorized | No Comments

Running = Inspiration     I have been a runner (jogger) for over 20 something years.  I have taken many breaks from it and have had a love/hate relationship with it.  I always miss it when I am away from it. Sometimes I think-I am done with running, however, I always go back to it. When I started running years ago, it was to loose weight.  I had a SICK food illness.  I used running as a form of torchure to my body and myself.  I would eat and eat and eat sugary stuff and go run 10+ miles and get sick.  I did loose weight.  I was pretty sick too. I ran my 1st marathon (26.1 miles) when I was 30 for a little gal that had Leukemia.  I joined the Leukemia Team in Training.  It was an amazing incredible event filled with unlimited support.  I had moved from …

WHO Inspires YOU?

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching | 1 Comment

My Coach Allison Crow www.allisoncrow.com  I told her month after month, I can’t afford you.  Deep in my soul, I knew I could not afford NOT to AFFORD her! I believe the only reason I have been successful in 3 businesses now is because of the help of a Coach/Mentor with ALL the businesses I have owned. You too can find your direction in  life.  Do you know your purpose?  When you are wanting to MOVE or RUN or you are  just plain AFRAID….do you have  someone to help lead you gently back to your purpose, your desires.  To remind you to listen to what is within YOU.   To take tiny bites.  To have FUN along the way. Find a Coach that YOU can help you to hear your TRUTH….then….HOLD on to your SEAT!  Watch your life SOAR!!!! AlaskaTracy.com here to Enrich your life via Social Media and Motivational Coaching!

Profile of a ‘Perfect’ Coaching Client

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching | No Comments

Alaska Tracy ~  Enriching lives via Social Media & Motivational Coaching My business was created because I genuinely love to help people find their true desires in life and guide them to these desires. Since starting a business 11 years ago, I always have had a ‘Coach’ or a business advisor helping me with business goals and decisions.  A person outside the business that can give me constructive criticism and I can be accountable to.  This, I believe has been the key to all the businesses I have owned successes. My experience is not all people that I have hired have ‘worked’ out for me.  Meaning, I am not able to understand all coaching styles.  Some people just do not ‘fit.’  This is not a reflection on them or me, it is just we all have a unique learning ability and not everyone ‘fits’ each others styles. I have hired Coaches and …
