A Beautiful Day at the Ranch!

ImageAhh….how I love a summer day in the 70’s with a cool breeze and a cloudless sky! Have taken care of feeding, turning the horses out and mucking the pens and am now enjoying a nice cup of coffee and writing this blog while hanging out on the porch.

While doing the morning chores listed earlier, I’ve simultaneously been ‘working’ on my business, by contemplating new programs, considering the things that went well this week and those things that might have gone better, and envisioning the Mid-Year Boost Your Business Tune-Ups and the Happy Hour with Jean telecalls that are on the horizon.

I also reflected on what a Successful Saturday would look like for me. I am so grateful that I have this beautiful setting that encourages and inspires me to fully embrace and live into the person I was created to be!

If you’d like to get out of your ordinary routine and enjoy what I call some HorsePlay for Success with me here at the ranch, get in touch with me at  You, too, will be inspired, challenged and energized for success and prosperity!

By the way, It’s gonna be a GREAT weekend for riding so if you do try to get in touch with me today, please leave a message and I’ll get back to you Monday!

TODAY’S TIP: Have a successful Saturday!

Century Mark Celebration!


Good Monday Morning!!

Today is a celebration. This is post #100 of Tips for Success in Business and Life! In honor of this accomplishment, I plan to keep the celebration going by doing a couple of things.

First of all, I’m going to put together a list of 100 celebrations for actions I’ve taken and goals that I’ve reached in my business.

Secondly, I’m going to assemble a list of 100 celebrations for life events  and accomplishments.

And, finally, I want to have a virtual celebration to mark this momentous occasion. I’m asking YOU to participate in the party by posting a celebration of your own on this wall — either a celebration related to your business or your life.  AND…..please find a friend or two who would be willing to add theirs, too. I’d love to see 100 celebrations listed here.


TODAY’S TIP:  Post a celebration below related to something you have accomplished in your business and/or your life!  HAPPY MONDAY!

Why would I want to hire a coach?

This week has been International Coach Week, an acknowledgement and celebration of the coaching profession. If you’re looking for a partner to help you strengthen your leadership skills, grow your business, learn how to better deal with stress and overwhelm, take control of your finances, organize your life, find a job that you love, or help you get clear about what you want out of life and how to get it, it’s time to contact a coach.

Coaches provide support by listening and asking powerful questions. We delight in helping you recognize where you are and where you want to go. We work with you so you can create a plan to get you there, overcome challenges and we especially enjoy celebrating your successes!

Here are some of the reasons why my clients chose to work with me:
+ I’ve been really frustrated with a situation with my co-worker at my job and would love some ideas on how I can deal with the situation in a more positive way.
+ I want to get a handle on my money stuff and build up a savings account but when I have money to set aside, I splurge, and then there’s nothing left to save.
+ I have a project I want to have completed and I know I won’t get it done if I don’t have someone who will keep me on track.
+ I’m ready to start my new business and I need help figuring out where to begin.
+ I have a million ideas for my coaching business but I feel stuck and don’t know which one to do first or how to get started.
+ I would love some help re-branding my coaching business because I have a new focus.
+ I’ve written a book and gotten it published.  Now I want to promote it, but I’m not sure how to effectively market it.
+ I’m tired of waking up every day worrying about money and would like to learn how I can stop doing that.
+ I’ve got a lot things going on my my life and need some help figuring out what my priorities are.
+ I want to grow my business but I’m not sure what to do to make that happen.

Ready to make a change for the better in your life?  Get in touch with me at and schedule a 30-minute, complimentary Boost Your Biz or Your Life conversation and let’s see what we can do together!

Jean’s #2 “C” of Success

Are you clear about where you are going?  About what you want?  (In case you missed it, that was yesterday’s #1 C of Success.)

Lion-cowardly-lion-of-oz-17649413-703-576Jean’s second “c'” of success is COURAGE.  If you’ve ever watched or read The Wizard of Oz, I’m sure you’ll remember that courage is what the cowardly lion was looking for.

The definition, as found in my almost ancient Webster’s Universal Unabridged Dictionary, which was a gift from my dad in the 1980’s, is as follows:  “1. the attitude or response of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful, instead of withdrawing from it; the quality of being fearless or brave; valor; pluck.”

No matter who you are, what you do or where you live, at some point in your life, you have been courageous. You may not even have recognized it, but I know you’ve acted courageously.  You faced circumstances or events that were “dangerous, difficult or painful” and you persevered.  It may not have been easy or accomplished gracefully.  You might have even had second thoughts about what you could-a, would-a, should’ve done, BUT — you got through it.  That’s COURAGE!

If making your dreams a reality, growing a prosperous business and/or living the life you truly want is something that’s important to you, your courage — your “attitude or response of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful, instead of withdrawing from it” — will come in handy.

TODAY’S TIP: Identify a place or circumstance in your business or your life right now that is dangerous, scary, difficult or painful and is keeping you from growing a prosperous, successful business or living the life that you’ve been dreaming of and face it courageously.  Have a plucky Wednesday!


It’s Tax Day!  How’s your mood?  Are you I-rritable and R-eally S-urly  or are you I-ncredibly R-elieved and S-erene?

If you’re part of the Irritable and Really Surly crowd, what’s that about and where else does this money issue show up in your business or your life?

Take control of your finances, courageously face your money fears and blast through your money blocks!  You can get started TODAY by contacting me and scheduling your F.R.E.E.! MEET YOUR SACRED MONEY ARCHETYPE conversation.  During our 30 minute chat, you’ll discover particular money behaviors, thoughts and actions of your personal Sacred Money Archetype that are keeping you from living into your financial prosperity.  And, you’ll leave the call with specific actions you can take to eliminate fear and truly step into your power with money.

Drop me a note at and MEET YOUR SACRED MONEY ARCHETYPE.  It could change your life for the better!!

TODAY’S TIP:  Tidy up those taxes and be part of the I-ncredibly R-elieved and S-erene crowd.  Happy Monday!

The Almost Boat

My friend and mentor, Barbara Winter, who was spending an afternoon with her grandson on Thursday, posted a brilliant four sentence observation on Facebook.  I’m sharing it with you today because I think it’s something to consider.  And, I’m wondering how many of you who read this blog recognize yourself in Barbara’s last sentence.
“So I suggested to Zachy that we make something out of construction paper. I thought a boat would be a good idea. We gathered our materials and then the project fell apart when he decided it should be large enough to hold his entire family of 5. Been pondering how often adults do themselves in by thinking the doable is unworthy of their efforts.”

TODAY’S TIP:  Think of something doable that will bring joy into your life and that will move you closer to making your dreams a reality.  Then do it — today!  Have a superb Saturday!!
