How To Make Sure You Always Have Plenty Of Clients

By Amira Alvarez I get it–you look outside your window and you see tons of people, BUT why aren’t they YOUR clients? Yes, there’s marketing that needs to be done. Yes, you need to be visible. Yes, there are conversations to be had. BUT… If you want to make sure you have a…

I get it–you look outside your window and you see tons of people, BUT why aren’t they YOUR clients?

Yes, there’s marketing that needs to be done.

Yes, you need to be visible.

Yes, there are conversations to be had.

BUT…

If you want to make sure you have a full roster of clients and plenty of people on your waitlist, then you need to understand: ‘the impression of increase’.

Wallace Wattles writes about this in his landmark book, ‘The Science of Getting Rich’.

He says that in order for YOU to be successful, you must CONVEY to others that working with you will allow THEM to have MORE.

Get that?

You have to impress upon them that working with you will help them increase their life and have…

More money, more love, more energy, more impact, more ease, peace, fun… whatever they desire more of in life that you help people with.

You can help them have a better life. You know that. But are you letting them know that? Or are you being shy and overly humble about it? Are you communicating it through what you say and do and how you’re being? Or are you playing small?

To be clear, the impression of increase is NOT about the impression of riches and wealth.

It isn’t about trying to be anything you’re not!!

That means don’t try to present an image of yourself that you’re more successful than you are, or that you’re living a completely different lifestyle than what is true.

No posing in front of private jets and Lamborghinis, unless they’re actually yours!! ;-)

It's about saying, “what I do in this world—the impact I have and the product or service I provide—can help you have more life.”

Do you know how to do this?

Are you doing this?

Take a crack at it today. :)

THIS is one of the ways to ensure you always have clients… by showing up with a focus on bringing MORE LIFE to everyone around you and communicating that.

Today Proper Undergarments – Tomorrow The World!

“Today proper undergarments – tomorrow the world!”

This is something a new client posted the other day, and I had to chuckle because it’s true. ;-)

When you start going for more in your life and business, it usually starts with small shifts most people overlook. Upgrading from the old ratty undergarments to the sexy, expensive ones. Ordering the steak off the menu, rather than settling for something less pricey. Choosing to shop at the higher end store rather than grabbing what works ‘well enough’ from the bargain shop.

These little incremental shifts add up.

They raise your vibration and allow you to attract more of what you truly desire, because you’re no longer operating from an energy of settling. Of ‘good enough’.

You’re claiming your desires and showing the Universe, Spirit, Source that you KNOW you’re worthy of more, different, and better. That you value yourself and what you want.

Eventually, you’ll move up from things like going to the salon for a blowout to flying first class everywhere you go. You’ll invest in the experts and higher level team. You’ll get exactly what you want because you want it, not because the price tag says you can have it.

You’ll hold yourself, your team, your relationships, and your clients to a higher standard because you’re committed to becoming truly unstoppable and living an uncompromised life.

But it starts with those little things… like underwear!!

The Law of Sacrifice says that in order to call in something of a higher nature, you have to be willing to let go of something of a lower nature.

What in your life or business is declaring to the Universe, “I’m not worth more or better”?

What ways of being are telling Spirit that, “I’m okay settling for ‘good enough’”?

What thoughts are you thinking that declare to Source, “I’m unwilling to align myself with things of a higher nature; of a more positive, abundant, and resourceful vibration”?

If you’re willing to uplevel your experience, actions, thoughts, beliefs, and ways of being around the small things first, it won’t be long before you’re calling in more money, more support, more visibility, more respect, more love, more connection, more pleasure, more fun.

Where will you start today?

 

Stop The Chaos Each Week By Doing This One Thing

Do you have good intentions each week to stay on top of all your tasks? To move your projects forward and not end up working late into the night?

Yet every week you seem to get lost in the chaos… getting some things done while adding 10 more things to the list… working 12+ hour days… always feeling stressed and behind?

It doesn’t have to be that way.

We live in an EASY and ABUNDANT Universe, we just have to make the DECISION to stop making it so dang hard!!

One of the best ways to stop is to bring more care and respect to your scheduling and planning process. Here’s how to do that…

First, at the start of each week (or the evening before each workday), take a few minutes and map out EVERYTHING that needs to get done. Make a big list, leave nothing off.

Second, create a grid for the day or week on a sheet of paper, breaking out the hours into 30-minute increments. Take your list and block time for each task that needs to get done. Leave a bit of buffer room if you’re not sure exactly how long it will take.

Third, HONOR and RESPECT this plan for your day or week. Stick to it. Be mindful of it. Set a timer on your phone for each block if that’s what you need to do. Make note of the tasks that take longer than you planned so you know what to expect for the next time, but do your best to stick to those time blocks as much as possible.

Will things come up? Absolutely! Things always come up!

But visually seeing everything you have to do for the day or week actually gives you MORE time and freedom… because rather than spinning out from the chaos of #allthethings and not having a sense of how long they will take or prioritizing what needs to be prioritized… you will feel calmer and far more focused. You will be able to do one thing at a time until it’s complete so that you can move onto what’s next with more ease and less anxiety.

We don’t have to make things so hard, and this is one simple way to start taking new and different actions to create different results (in this case, feeling more peace and ease during your weeks).

How will you implement this in your business this week?

“I’ve always been that chubby girl.”

By Amira Alvarez I was out on my second run the other morning after a good, long break. Truth: I’ve really gotten off my game!! Truth: When I went, it was hot and I was all WHINY about it. Whiny sounded like… “I don’t like being in the heat. It’s hard and I’m…

I was out on my second run the other morning after a good, long break.

Truth: I’ve really gotten off my game!!

Truth: When I went, it was hot and I was all WHINY about it.

Whiny sounded like…

“I don’t like being in the heat. It’s hard and I’m so out of shape. This sucks. Wah, wah, wah. You’ve always been the chubby one, is that ever going to change?!”

Whoa!! We all have that internal critical voice but I was really surprised by that last bit… about always being the chubby one.

Some of you may know that I ran a marathon last year. I accomplished this HUGE thing in my life, and still, I catch myself thinking like this. Reiterating an old belief structure, over and over again.

Do you know what this does?

It makes what I want that much harder!!

There were actual times where I slowed down and stopped running—not because I needed a run break or because I was on some run/walk methodology to build up my capacity—but because I was shutting myself down with what I was saying to myself.

There was an actual physical response to the mental negativity. So interesting! (Not the first time that I’ve noticed that BUT STILL… it’s always fascinating to see it in action.)

What I realized is it takes a while to make a transformation when you’re going against such a core belief.

What I'm saying is that in order to step up in your life, you have to face when you've stepped away or stepped down or gone blind and checked out.

What I’m saying is that, sure, there were a lot of good reasons for me to stop running. There was a health issue. But now, it's time again because I want to be a runner.

I don't know what it is for you, but I bet there is something inside of you that is calling you forward, and then there's another voice in your head that's saying, “You've always been the chubby girl. You can't do that. Wah, wah,wah.”

Maybe it's, “I'm not so good at business.” I heard that the other day from someone who's freaking killing it in business. Yeah, she wants to go bigger. She wants to be extraordinary. But, in her head, that's what she was saying.

What is the voice in your head saying? What do you have to do to confront that?

The Universe Meets You Halfway

What happens when you get out of your own way and get into action?

The Universe meets you halfway.

Case in point… a woman joined my Bootcamp program not too long ago. She'd been in a lull and hadn't been in action for awhile. In fact, she'd been downright stalled out.

But she decided… I'm doing this! I'm claiming my future. I'm getting help.

What happens next?

The day after she signs up, I got this… “After signing up, three people have reserved their spot for a website building webinar I'm doing. I'd planned on canceling it, but forgot to take it down! I guess the Universe is trying to tell me something.”

Two days later, someone booked in to talk about working with her.

This is NOT an anomaly.

The Universe will meet you halfway, but you've got to get on the field.

You've got to take action.

The other day, I suggested a small tweak to a client's plan that basically said… don't wait, do it now. She gets a new booking. Immediately. Not next week, not in a month. Same day.

This happens ALL THE TIME.

I've had women book their seat at my Summit, then tell me they received new bookings and payments. The other day, I had a conversation with a potential client about her plan and told her to go for it. It was all in place, she didn’t have to wait. The result? $17k launch. One week.

It's not magic.

It's stepping forward in confidence and faith. It's making a claim for what you want. It's spotting the opportunities and going for it. It's doing the work and getting out of the way.

And it works.

So… how will you get into action today?

What Are You Tolerating?

By Amira Alvarez Tolerations are one way that we continually sabotage our growth and success. Because tolerations keep us small. They keep us in old ways of being, or in relationships and obligations that don’t truly serve us in calling in what we desire. Nothing needs to be tolerated… yet, I’m sure you’ll…

Tolerations are one way that we continually sabotage our growth and success.

Because tolerations keep us small. They keep us in old ways of being, or in relationships and obligations that don’t truly serve us in calling in what we desire.

Nothing needs to be tolerated… yet, I’m sure you’ll find that when you get really honest, you’re actually tolerating a lot.

Are you tolerating…

  • Non-ideal or drama loving clients or team.
  • Not making enough money or not charging enough.
  • Not doing what you really want to do.
  • Not taking action and therefore not growing.
  • Not having the right support you need.
  • Not taking the vacations you want to take.
  • Not enough down time or time for what you love.

 

Or maybe, for you, it looks like tolerating…

  • Toxic people.
  • Confusion or indecision about what to do next.
  • Paralysis, perfectionism, or procrastination.
  • Invisibility, not putting yourself out there.
  • Anxiety, worry, and doubt.
  • Writer's block.
  • Overwhelm and burnout.

 

And in your life, it might look like tolerating…

  • Unsupportive partners or family members.
  • An unsatisfying sex life or hating how your body looks.
  • An uninspiring or ugly home environment.
  • Clothing that's just meh or bad hair days.

 

And the list goes on and on. You get the idea. Toleration.

Is that really okay? I’m sure you believe you can make the argument that it is… but I'm arguing that it's NOT. It’s not okay because it’s time to step into MORE.

It’s time to claim what you want and really go for it.

Choose ONE thing that your are NO LONGER going to tolerate. Today.

Choose one thing. Do it now. Your life will forever be changed.

What's it going to be?
