NEW RULE; the Big Idea/ Strategy to help with this new world we live in:

“You choose everything in your life, and that is powerful.  But before you can feel free to make those choices, you must free your time first.  Learning to leverage your time and your efforts is the difference between soaring in your business and being stuck in your business.”

Why it’s important; benefits both personally and professionally:

“In a world that says you must do it all, I say you must choose what to do.  It isn’t about doing it all.  It is about having the discipline to do the right thing consistently enough to produce a result.

Imagine a life where your choices were easy, where the work just got done, where you spent your time where you wanted and had enough time leftover.  Imagine never uttering the phrase, “There’s just too much to do.”  Again.


Imagine being completely in control, and making good money, on your own terms.  Sound like paradise?  It can be your reality.”

How to accomplish the above:

Begin by banishing your time stealing demons.

Favorite Quote:

We turn not older with years, but newer every day. ~Emily Dickinson

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming….. WOO HOO…. What a RIDE!”      Indian Larry The Ryan Clan

What do you do to stay motivated or the secret for your motivation:

“I am super clear on my big whys, my priorities, and my values.  It is my litmus test for my life.  But I also have a fire in my belly that can’t be quenched – a bit of a queen and a bit of a warrior.  So even though I might have highs and lows, I always come back.  Always.”


I encourage people to take time for themselves each and every day. One of the ways to relax is to read a good book.  A Fiction Book. What is your Favorite Book:

“I devour books.  I’m not sure there is a favorite.  I love everything from Under the Tuscan Sun, to Salman Rushdie’s Midnight Children.  I go back and forth between easy, non-thinking reading to books that are so thick in language that it slows my brain down.”

Golden Nuggets:

  • If you check your phone approx. 150-300 times a day for 10 seconds each time, it adds up to an 1 hour of your day. Make a few set times to check your phone so you can Get the hour back  and begin to take control of your time
  • Time demons that divert us:  


Indecision and Delayed Action



  • If you don’t take time for your life, your life will pass you by
  • Learn how to Say NO but leave the door open
  • Your Biz Rules Blueprint (TM):
  1. Leverage Your Time to Freedom – Get to the point of having some nice free  time
  2. Build Consistent Cash Flow
  3. Laser Focus On Your Big Whys … your desires and aligning these with your values and  ethics.     Make your Why non-negotiable.
  4. Break it down to Put it Together in 90 days …  Find out what is good enough?
  5. Streamlined Action … one time effort – repurpose for multiple results …  Find economies of purpose. Stop thinking singularly.   Have the intention of maximizing efforts.
  6. Get it Done and Off Your Plate… automate … find a  shortcut … document and delegate. An entrepreneur should only focus on  3 things: market, sell, customer service
  7. Slow Down To Speed Up –   meditation …    planning …    do for you
