How to create MORE TIME

Have you moved the needle forward on your big goals, or are you feeling stuck at yet another plateau?

Have you doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled your monthly income, or are you still hustling your @$$ off to keep in line with what you made last year?

Do you have more time for what you love… your family, friends, passion projects, self-care, travel etc… or are you still working those insane 16-hour days?

So much of the angst we experience year after year—the frustration of “why can’t I get ahead” or “what’s the missing link”—stems from not understanding EXACTLY what it means to grow and scale YOUR unique business. As well as not understanding how to best invest your time, energy, resources, and money in the right systems and support.

At its core, all the stress and anxiety we experience comes down to TIME.

You only have 24 hours in the day (just like everyone else). So, if you want to SCALE and GROW, you need to be using your time EFFECTIVELY.

But… what does that even mean and how do you even do that??

When you’re stuck at a plateau and feeling like you have NO TIME to put towards figuring out how to be more effective with TIME, the idea of making a quantum leap in your business can feel impossible and maddening.

You know you need better systems to streamline your process and projects.

You know you need better support to open up your time and energy and focus.

You know you need better ways to package your products or service to increase your revenue stream.

“But you don’t have the time.”

The truth is, you have the power to MAKE the time.

Before you get frustrated, hear me out.

When you’re stuck in the loop of the constant doing and stressing and running around like a mad woman… it sucks up so much more time and energy than is even necessary.

This is where the INNER GAME work comes in, specifically around creating LEVERAGE.

Leverage isn’t about being demanding or overbearing. It isn’t about taking advantage of people or creating more strain and stress. It’s about taking what already exists and works in your business and MAXIMIZING it.

The INNER GAME work involves:

Having the right energy and attitude.
Valuing yourself, your work, and your worth.
Mastering and owning your pricing and packages.
Knowing you’re capable of growing (and hiring the right team).
Creating the ability to hold your vision and trust in the process.
A deep understanding of the Universal Laws and how they apply to leverage.

This allows you to RELAX into more peace and ease, instantly creating MORE TIME.

As does the OUTER GAME work of creating better ways to package what you sell, systems, and team.

The Big Wobble: WHY you’re experiencing it and what to do about it

By Amira Alvarez When you’re growing your business, there’s going to be times of uncertainty. Is it going to work??? Let’s say you raise your prices, go to speak on bigger stages, hire more team, or take whatever YOUR BIG STEPS are that raise you into a whole new level of serving… You…

When you’re growing your business, there’s going to be times of uncertainty. Is it going to work???

Let’s say you raise your prices, go to speak on bigger stages, hire more team, or take whatever YOUR BIG STEPS are that raise you into a whole new level of serving…

You don’t know if it’s going to work. There is uncertainty… and this, my friend, leads to THE WOBBLE.

That’s the feeling of not knowing and the discomfort around it.

This is because it’s new and uncertain terrain.

You’re growing, which means you’ve likely never been in this place before.

Of course there’s tension.

Of course you feel uncertain.

Of course it brings up doubts.

Of course you feel fear.

Yet, in this tension is a point of choice.

We can choose to play a safer and smaller game, taking smaller steps and doing the things that are familiar. OR, we can continue taking BIG growth steps that move the needle forward and make a quantum leap in our business.

In order to make a true quantum leap, we have to understand that tension is a normal part of the growth process. It will always be there. It’s, by definition, what it feels like to grow—what our cells feel like when they’re changing and our brain evolving as we form new neural pathways.

The more comfortable we get holding that expansion without imploding, the easier it becomes.

Watch the short video I recorded for you on “the wobble” and the tension that comes with growth below:

Do you know how to grow through the tension? Do you know what the gap is between where you are now and where you want to be?

I ask because most people don’t.

Most people have a sense that they need to do something or that something is missing or misaligned… because it feels like they are struggling too much… and chances are you are struggling too much if you’re feeling that way. Makes sense, right?

Yet, there’s no need to feel the struggle.

There may be tension in the growth, but there doesn’t need to be a struggle.

You can choose to continue spinning your wheels and feeling frustrated by your lack of growth and ease, or you can choose to finally get out of the struggle and master The Art of Leverage.

You know which option I’d choose. ;-)

What to do when your team lets you down.

By Amira Alvarez Leveraging your business means bringing on support, which means you won’t be doing everything yourself. Hallelujah! This is truly a godsend… EXCEPT it also means that your support team will inevitably let you down. Something won’t get done, or something won’t get done right, and you might find yourself feeling…

Leveraging your business means bringing on support, which means you won’t be doing everything yourself. Hallelujah! This is truly a godsend…

EXCEPT it also means that your support team will inevitably let you down. Something won’t get done, or something won’t get done right, and you might find yourself feeling frustrated.

Let’s be honest, sometimes you might even feel frustration or even rage.

You wanted something done and you wanted it done right, bah!

The email went out with the wrong link to the wrong list, ugh!

You’re in the middle of launching and things aren’t working, noooo!

Your client didn’t get what they needed and now you look bad, grrrr!

Sound familiar?

The first thing to remember is that it’s human nature to make mistakes. Mistakes will happen as a part of that process, and you have to be prepared for that reality. Growing a team requires that you roll with the mistakes and use them as a way to build and solidify the systems that your business needs.

The second thing to remember is that operating from a space of rage about the mistakes is really an indication of your own shame…

Let’s break this down…

When you feel rage, instead of rolling with the punches… this is your internal shame for…

  • Not having trained your team well enough.
  • Not having the right systems in place.
  • Looking bad in the eyes of others
  • Not feeling good enough.

And this shame hampers your ability to show up as the powerful creator that you are. It brings up the stories you tell yourself about your own self worth, and who you have to be to others. It keeps you from showing up fully and serving at your highest potential. Worse yet, it keeps you from making powerful decisions that move your business forward.

Feeling shame and rage doesn’t serve anyone or anything.

Not you. Not your clients. Not your team. Not your ability to quantum leap.

And here’s the important thing to remember: feeling that frustration, rage, and underlying shame is both a choice and an absolute waste of energy.

It pushes you into spinout, which means you’re losing valuable time and wasting your valuable mental resources… and this dramatically slows down your business growth.

Here’s what you do instead:

  • Shift your energy and mindset immediately. Put it in perspective. You could even laugh about it. Feel gratitude for who’s supporting you or what’s going right. Remind yourself these things happen.
  • Think about what you’d do differently, without dwelling on the mistakes or errors. Learn the lessons, note what needs to change about the flow, and see it as an opportunity to turn your systems and team into a well oiled machine.
  • Get back to running and growing and serving in your business. What is the next necessary action step to keep your business moving forward? Go do that.

Learning how to build a team that supports YOU and your business’ growth is important. Understanding how to deal with the INNER and OUTER game aspects of that is critical.

You have to master this to make your quantum leap with both ease and grace.

What if your partner doesn’t support spending money on your business?

Today I want to talk about something that’s super important when it comes to growing your business: what to do if your partner doesn’t support you making the necessary investments in your business?

Now, even if you’re not partnered, this topic is applicable to you because it’s about more than just the other person… (isn’t it always?)

In order to grow and leverage your business, you have to invest.

That can means spending money on hiring team, running ads, working with professionals, and running your marketing. If your partner (or the people around you) don’t have the same money mindset, that can cause some real tension and backlash!

AND, sometimes it actually has nothing to do with them. Sometimes it’s your own belief system around what they might think coming into play and getting in the way.

Whatever comes up for you as a result of watching this video, it’s ESSENTIAL to dive deeper into it if you’re really ready to make a quantum leap in your business. This is part of getting good with your money story.

The Power of Choice

By Amira Alvarez Choice. It's the greatest power we have as humans. You have it. I have it. We all have it. But often we forget that we have choice because we're running on autopilot. We forget that every reaction can be a choice. Case in point... Recently on a training call, my…

Choice. It's the greatest power we have as humans.

You have it. I have it. We all have it.

But often we forget that we have choice because we're running on autopilot.

We forget that every reaction can be a choice.

Case in point…

Recently on a training call, my audio didn't work. WTF, right? I've used this service before. Why did this problem just arise? Hmmmm…

But instead of going down that rabbit hole and freaking out, I quickly walked downstairs and got my phone and headset, went back to my office, dialed in as a guest, and started the call.

No panic.
No freakout.
Just a huge amount of gratitude to my assistant for holding down the fort while it was happening.

This was a choice.

Because freaking out doesn't serve me or you in times like this. That would take me out of my power and distract me from providing a great teaching. And that is ultimately not of service to anyone.

And being bitter or disappointed about it afterward?
Also a choice and an absolute waste of my energy.

So I CHOOSE to laugh instead and roll with it, which I consider a much better plan. Keeps one's energy positive and the momentum going. (This isn't to say I haven't thought about what we could do differently next time.)

It also allows me to refocus and get back to the business of running my company quicker. Closing this gap is critical.

If you're spinning out, you're losing valuable time and wasting your valuable mental resources and this dramatically slows down your business growth.

Use your power of choice to decide at every moment how to react and make sure it serves you and your business.

You have the power to choose.
Start using it consciously and consistently.

Does Energetic Work Get Easier?

Have you ever said to yourself, “Please tell me that this inner energetic work gets easier so I can just get on with making bank from all my brilliant ideas”?

Yes?

I used to say that too. I was committed to my personal growth and doing what it took to show up as an unstoppable woman in business but quite honestly… I was tired of the emotional roller coaster that came with doing the deep transformational work.

The truth is it took me many years of working on my core limiting beliefs. Then one day I realized I was done with needing the deeper energetic, transformational work. Sure, things still come up occasionally, but they don't linger and it's not a rollercoaster of emotions because I know how to move through it. I don't get thrown for a loop like I used to.

In fact, when shizz comes up, I embrace it. I move toward it.

It's my growth edge and I always want to be growing.

So what changed for me?

As I said, I did lots of transformational work on myself.
That was really important and foundational.

But the real lynchpin was when I DECIDED I wasn't going to indulge ANY thoughts that caused me to spin out and become unproductive or unfocused. I made the CHOICE to have zero tolerance for any of that.

(Scroll down below this post to grab my free Stop Your Spinout Guide. I show you the exact method I used to stop these unproductive thoughts.)

Was that easy to execute? No.
Did it work? Yes.

If you're done with the emotional rollercoaster and getting emotionally sideswiped by triggers in your life and business and you just want to focus and show up every day as the unstoppable woman that you are… you can.

But first, you have a decision to make… are you or are you not going to indulge the thoughts that send you down the rabbit hole?

The answer to this question is what determines whether it gets easier or not.
