Natalie MacNeil talks about how to tame your too busy schedule

It’s Your Choice: The Antidote For Being Too Busy

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You run into someone you haven’t seen for a while and ask them how they’re doing and they say, “I am sooooo busy.” Or maybe someone asks you about how things are going and your knee-jerk response is to reply, “I’m really busy,” maybe even with a bit of […]

Natalie MacNeil on North Star Syndrome

Feel Like You’ll Never Be as Good as THAT Person?

Today I want to talk to you about a topic I’m really passionate about, something I like to call the North Star Syndrome.

Love the One You're With

Love the One You’re With (That’s You!!!)

Lately I’ve been talking to people about how far they’ve come with reaching a business goal or overcoming a personal challenge, and many will tell me, as they talk about who they were in that corporate job or relationship that wasn’t serving them anymore, “Oh, I hate who I was then,” or “I hated that […]

Episode: Three Workspace Improvements

Improve Your Workspace to Improve Your Business

While visiting Thailand this fall, I was inspired by a very impressive “office.” It wasn’t in a high rise or some other sleek building. Instead, it was an office I rode in from the airport!

Reflections From The Eye Of The Storm

Imposter Syndrome

Women Entrepreneurs and the Imposter Syndrome

Conquer Your Personal Dragons

Change your mindset, and you can change the world. When we know what we want, what sabotages our success and prevents us from getting what we desire most? Dragons. Every one of us has a dragon or two or three, and they aren’t the cute ones from the hit show “Game of Thrones” that everyone […]

Are You Getting Impatient Waiting For Success?

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

It’s something we have all done to sabotage our own success. One minute you’re feeling great, on top of the world, making tons of progress; then you hear about an accomplishment made by one of your peers and you think, “Why am I not that successful?” Jealousy sets in, you start to feel like a […]

The Opposite of Safe is Creative

No one aspires to be boring. No one wakes up in the morning and thinks, “Today, I’m going to do my best to be average. I’m going to fly under the radar, blend in, and be ordinary.” And yet, this is what most of us do, day in and day out. We bide our time, […]

Finding Your Aha! Moment in Business

Some people refer to it as a “Eureka!” moment. Others think of it as a little light bulb going off. In business as well as in life, your “aha!” moment is going to shape you and help you grow, taking what you didn’t understand at first and adding clarity and comprehension to get “it” all of a […]

Wanna Be Successful? Make a Do-Not-Do List

“Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.” — Steve Jobs As women entrepreneurs, we often take on more than we can handle. Often the “to-do” lists from projects, family schedules, home, business, clients, staff, etc., can bury us. However, when I finally learned to make a Do-Not-Do list, I […]

Let me ask you something.  If you don’t already have what you want […]

Why You Should NOT Wait for a Clear Vision Before You Move Forward

Whenever I’m speaking to entrepreneurs—whether they are around the country or around the world—I’m always asked to share my now famous “ATM Story”. It’s one I kept close to the vest for years, because I was too embarrassed to reveal it. But today, I know it’s important to share. And why. You see, we always […]

Enough With Feeling Guilty

“I shouldn’t be into him, but I totally am. Shouldn’t I be looking for someone who makes more money?” “That corner office.  I want it. I feel bad for letting my ambition consume me, but I want my name on that door more than I want anything else.” “Everyone I know is settling down.  I guess […]

You’re Not Going To Die

IF you don’t get the job, the call-back, the promotion. If you max out your credit-cards, wipe out your savings, lose every cent in your checking account…. You’ll still be ok.
