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. …

Vision Board Creation ~ Simplified

Posted on by Tracy in business, entrepreneur, goals, Grow, growth, struggle, Success, vision | No Comments

How many times have you heard the word Vision Board and thought,  that is so ‘woo-woo‘? From time to time I run into small business owners that have felt ‘stuck’ in their business and I have shared the Vision Board process.  Often times they tune me out before I fully explain how it works. I have even had people say that vision boards go against their beliefs in life. I get the impression people think that Vision Boards are cutting up pretty pictures of big fancy homes and cars and pasting them on a board.   After that, you sit back and bingo!!! The magic happens!!  All the visions become reality!  So, that would be like saying, ‘hello Universe let me tell you ALL my WANTS and NEEDS so you can give them to me’. This has NOT been my experience.  Quite the opposite actually.  It is usually a painful, fearful experience at first. …

Combating Head Chatter

Posted on by Tracy in Anchorage, business, Challenge, entrepreneur, lifestyle, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, struggle, Success | No Comments

Working alone as an entrepreneur or business owner can be challenging.  Often times it’s the ‘head chatter’ that makes for the challenge. How do you combat your ‘head chatter’? Here are several tools that have worked and continue to work for me: 1: Take a Personality Test.  Doing this can give you some insight into how to best complement your personality type so that you can keep your ‘head’ in check. Introverts and Extroverts need different activities to get inspired or motivated and knowing which type of personality you are is a fantastic place to start!  I spent years doing things that didn’t suit my personality type and was often exhausted and had body ailments that could have been avoided. 2. Meditation.  Meditation is all about quieting the mind – not stopping the mind, but slowing it down. Learning to slow down and listen to what our bodies and our hearts are telling us will allow us to give ourselves …

How I Became Successful

Posted on by Tracy in business, entrepreneur, Facebook, focus, goals, linkedin, Social Community, spiritual experience, Twitter, Uncategorized | No Comments

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” –Albert Einstein What does success mean to you?  To me success is following my heart.  In doing so, I have been able to create a heart centered business.  When I follow my heart, I am able to be useful to others.  When I am of use to others all sorts of opportunities become available (including money).  If I continually think about what is in it for me and how can I get MORE, business and life become a struggle. About eight years ago, I sold a mobile dog grooming business that I had started in Anchorage, AK. My husband and I had hit a little bump in the road of life and I got busy looking for a new career. My background was marketing and sales. My heart and soul fought what I was doing entering a real estate career… and yet… …

Measurement of Success

Posted on by Tracy in entrepreneur, Uncategorized | No Comments

Author: Nicole Forto Success is often defined as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, an attainment of one’s goals and dreams. However, I have come to learn that success isn’t just the accomplishment of one’s dreams. A person is not born with success. Nor is it something that is thrust upon you due to wealth, strength, intelligence, or beauty. Rather, success is earned through rigorous effort. I define success not by the accomplishment at the end of the game, finish line, recital, or test but by the long journey I take to get there. Mushing has shown me that to be a success doesn’t mean you have to be a first place champion. It has shown me that believing in yourself and pushing through the good and bad times is where you measure how successful you are. Whether I was coming in first on the racing finish line or …

Exclusive Guide to Your Successful Biz! (part 1)

What’s a true joy in my life? I get to help others that are looking to start a business. In the past month, I have been approached by folks right out of college with no clue how to go about creating a successful business. For a second, it confused me. I have a two-year degree, and I suppose I just assumed a four-year degree would provide insight on how to create and run a business. So, why not spread my knowledge, you wonder? Well, it has sparked my interest to pursue teaching at universities. Teaching the “how-to’s” and the “ins-and-outs” of being an entrepreneur. These people have reminded me of what I knew back when I started my first business in 2001. I have been reminded of the challenges, heart aches and all the successes. This will be the first entrepreneurial blog in a series, and now it’s time for me to ask you some questions. Below are four questions you must …

Dearest Universe ~

Posted on by Tracy in accountability, Calendar, Coaching | 2 Comments

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 …
