In this video I want to tackle one level of hiding that may not feel like hiding, but I see it so often even with high level entrepreneurs.

And yet, 60% of my current clients were a ‘no’ at first.
One in particular, said ‘no’ to me probably 150,000 times, over the period of 2 years.

So many times I would go present to an...
The mindset around content you must have if you want to be effective!
So many times people ask me ‘holy cow Iva, how do you get so much content done! You seem like you are doing so much everywhere!’
True story, I do all my content in about 1.5 hours a week.
NOW, anyway. The same that two years ago would have taken me probably 10 hours, at least, to produce!
So in this week’s podcast, I want you to start making some mindset shifts around...
Too many times I see people making a plan and giving up on their goal shortly after. This is one of my super powers - being able to predict the future based on my calendar!
