How many projects do you have open?  Ever begin a new one while there was still sooo much left to do on the others?  Because you had to, right?  If you’re anything like me, you have multiple projects going at one time, most of them somewhere just below or above the halfway mark of getting done.  They’re sitting there, lounging about in various stages of undress, thumbing their noses at you and beckoning the rest of the world to have a looksee at how disorganized you are….

Who are you accountable to? Accountability is one of the foundation stones of success. When one rises through the ranks of a company they are accountable to their direct management. The higher you go up the ladder, you become more and more accountable to the customer. At every level we are accountable to the customer, but of all that you are accountable to, which is most important? In my life I am accountable to my wife and my son over all else. As I work towards success, however, they are not undermining and plotting against it. Instead they support and encourage and so momentum toward the goal happens.

This is not the first time you are hearing of how clutter affects your energy.  Did you ever think of email as clutter?  Sure, we are all annoyed  by spam, “good luck” chains, “like this because I do” emails.  If you think of your email Inbox as your living room, your perspective will change in an instant!

Think back to when you were a child.  Did you have a special career in mind?  A passion to be a police officer, or a dancer, or perhaps a painter? When you got older and entered  high school, did you discover a talent for debate?  For shop class?  Is there something that really stuck with you?  Something from those childhood joys that is with you today? For instance, did your love of debate lead you into practicing law?

Ultimately we are all looking for security and women entrepreneurs are no exception. It is a difficult realization when our clients/customers leave us. We make it personal and maybe even allow it to put us in fear.

Networking can be wildly successful or painfully ineffective… and it all depends on your frame of mind and approach going into it.

I bet that title got your attention.

Perhaps you are quite shocked and wondering if I used to be a stripper in my early days. Sorry to disappoint you, but I am speaking in metaphors. By the way, if any of the guys out there were disappointed by that metaphor part – I’ll send you a little wink for even thinking this 53-year old gal still has it going on.

I've written before about being organized in your workplace from a time management standpoint.  But have you ever thought of the environment you work in as a representation of energy? Whether you understand the Law of Attraction or have never heard of it, consider this.
