Happy MONDAY MOTIVATION! Yes, Is YOURS consistent? It needs to be and now is a great time to pull it together! COMMUNICATION THAT IS! In last week's podcast CODY BUTLER gave you three tips and tip #2 was COMMUNICATION. Listen in this week as I dive deeper into how you can review yours and the importance of making sure it's CONSISTENT! I CHALLENGE YOU to "listen in"... to yours that is!
July 27, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Thank you for listening and investing your time to help you grow! This is a different – and a bit longer - interview as I have a special guest, Cody Butler, who will share his insights and expertise with marketing to give you three steps to help you - in these uncertain times - see immediate growth. But... you still have to TAKE STEPS... ACTION to make things happen!
July 20, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - this week you'll appreciate my message as I ask you all to SLOW DOWN! Listen in as I share what MORE I did to make MORE mistakes! And, by making yet more mistakes helped me understand what I was doing and NOT doing! Yes, we are now in this mode of "hurry up and wait", so when business is open and good - or we have an idea (Like ME) you GO FOR IT and well, if you're not prepared, or trying to hurry it can bite you in the ass!
July 13, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thank you for listening. In this week's podcast I share a bit about a listener who reached out to me and what I did to TAKE A STEP (which was last week's podcast theme!) Taking a step, no matter how uncertain you are, doesn't always have to lead to mistakes! One did and one... well, didn't! From both I learned! Listen in and then tell me about your experience.
July 6, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Business. Business. Business. Yes, still uncertain... but, right now we just need to keep moving! Much like if you've ever had an injury that first step can be rough, but you have to take it and loosen up the joints and muscles! TAKE A STEP! It's what I have been telling my clients who have been closed during COVID. Take ONE step and then evaluate. Listen in this week as I challenge you to help you get moving! Cheers! Sandi
June 29, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Yep, more change and uncertainty! Changes with masks, restaurants open then closed, more events cancelled or postponed or at half-capacity. The whiplash continues! In last week's podcast, I talked about creating awareness. And this week I discuss what comes from that... POSSIBILITIES. Yes, through all of this uncertainty we need to be open to them. Listen in and let me know what you see!
June 22, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Thank you for listening and sharing this podcast with others... especially since this roller-coaster-ride-of-uncertainty has yet to stop!

June 15, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! It's mid-June and it's been a WILD friggn ride! Have you [RE]Opened? Gone back to work? Working, but still from home? All I know is... I'm TIRED! All this back and forth and maybe, but not yet, ok now, but not you, is giving me a case of whiplash! Listen in this week as I share a conversation I had with my daughter and how after getting a "back to work" start date, she finally feels like she can PLAN!
June 8, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Once again, the unrest in the world has affected us in some way. In last week’s podcast, I suggested we focus on our FUTURE and put the “VID” talk on the back burner. I think we all needed a distraction, but I don’t know that anyone was suggesting this! Listen in this week as I share my thoughts on this shit show and how together, we can turn chaos into change.
June 1, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - yes it's June. I'm ready to start looking at the future, and as the quote says, change the PLAN but NEVER the GOAL. Listen in this week as I challenge you to use your WORD OF THE YEAR to focus on ONE THING. I share how mine has already helped me. And, yes as unusual as it sounds, let's start looking toward the future and talking about the future and what we can do. Make sure you have updated your PLAN and continue to as we continue to face uncertainty.
May 25, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! As this "panDAMNIT" [as I'm calling it] has taken it's toll on us mentally, physically, personally and professionally, there actually has been some great things that have happened! Right? Listen in this week as I share a new connection I made and how it helped ME shift my mindset - I PURGED the negativity! It's time people! And yes, I'm ready... it's TIME. Are you?
May 18, 2020

May 11, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - welcome back and thank you for listening and connecting with me on social media! This week you MUST listen in as I do something new! Yes, we're all pivoting! I have a friend who is a mental health professional share tips on mindset - purge and shift - to help us prepare for the re-emergence! She gives great tips on how to make sure you're prepared.
May 4, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Yes, let's prepare! It's time. We've had the opportunity clean, purge and organize our homes and maybe our yards. I've felt like the first spring flower that got hit with a hard freeze. And now, I'm ready to prepare - professionally - for the re-emergence. Last week was about having fun and lightening the mood and now -listen in as I challenge you to prepare PROFESSIONALLY! Stop baking bread and start PURGING!
April 27, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thank you for listening! We all need to find ways to laugh right now. In this week's podcast I share how, as the Executive Director of a Chamber of Commerce during the 2008-2010 recession, I instilled a little fun and laughter during a bleak time. And I wanted to do that now as well. Since I can't bring you all what I brought my Members, this week I share with you how I have brought laughter and fun back into my world, and have seen and heard others do the same!
April 20, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Yep, it's all up to you! During this crazy-ass time of quarantining, I've talked about dusting off old ideas, trying new habits, creating new routines and now you have been! So, how's it going? Have you succeeded? Resisted? Or do you feel like you've failed? Or have you realized that you've settled for all these years? In my mind - and many others - failure is just the opportunity to LEARN. So.... what would you rather do? What have you done? And... what you can do is.........
April 13, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! YES IT IS MONDAY! LOL! I trust you are healthy and not totally confused on what day it is! Thank you again for being here, listening and sharing this podcast. I'm doing my best... how about you? And then this week... oh yes, I'm still practicing what I'm preaching, as old ways won't lead to NEW now will they? So, what are you learning about you and loving about them?
April 6, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! I hope this podcast finds you healthy!!! I'm sure many of you are like me: stir crazy, bored and on a roller coaster of emotions... daily and sometimes hourly! I have decided to translate the common sayings. Instead of "Hang in there", I am saying, "Do your best"! So, I hope you are doing your best! Listen in this week as I share how others have pivoted, and what I've noticed that's coming from this chaotic, uncertain time.
March 30, 2020
Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! As always, thank you for listening. How are you doing? If you’re an extrovert like me, you may be going a little more stir crazy than others. I’ll say it: I’M BORED AS HELL! While I can still work – as I have been coaching virtually for years – this pandemic has greatly affected me as well. Listen in this week, as I talk about the things I "dusted off" and started doing, even before COVID19 was announced, and why I almost stopped and gave up.
March 23, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Well, with all of this chaos with COVID19, many of you... no ALL of us will have to start doing things differently. We already are! If you had thought about it, you may be doing it now... like me 100% VIRTUAL coaching. Luckily I had transitioned before this, but who knew? Now... how will you pivot? Listen in this week and tell me how this has affected you.
March 16, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - This week I share, yes, my concerns about the Coronovirus and how it is affecting small businesses – solo-E's and start-ups, and how timely this week's portion of Simon Sinek's book is - as this week is about WHAT do you do. WHAT is the RESULT... the proof of your WHY. And, well, now is definitely a time to look at all of it, especially the result. Listen in and share what you do, but focus on the outcome. We're all in this together! LET'S DO THIS!
March 9, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - welcome back and thanks for listening! Last week was based on me listening to Simon Sinek's book, "Start with WHY". I'll continue that this week with the HOW. HOW do you do what you do? What are your processes? The ACTION steps you'll take to REALIZE your WHY?
March 2, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Last week I asked you to rate your excitement level for your goals and WHY. This week, listen in as I reference Simon Sinek's book "Start With WHY" and how it helped me help a client. We sometimes all have to go back and remember WHY to help us face challenges and move forward.
February 24, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - This week I talk a bit more about why some people can't hold themselves accountable. I ask you to all dig a little deeper into your excitement surrounding your goals so you make sure you're on the right path and are ready to PLAY BIGGER!
February 10, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thank you again for listening and sharing this podcast with others! Last week's podcast was about reeling in all the ideas, thoughts and shit swirling around in your head, written down on post-it's and note pads... prioritizing and then attacking! FOCUSING on ONE thing at a time! Listen in this week as I share all that I have swirling around in my head, what's coming, and what is keeping me focused! My MOTIVATION for doing all that I am doing. Yep... MY WHY!
February 3, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Welcome back and thanks for listening! This week's podcast stems from what I did seven years ago... FOCUS! I decided to "reel it in" and focus purely on coaching. And when I recorded this podcast, I had actually forgotten it was my work-aversay! I was "reeling it in" as I had started thinking so much about "What's Next" myself that I was losing FOCUS! Listen in and I look forward to hearing from you!
January 27, 2020
Happy Monday Motivation! In this week's podcast I share that this not only is week 200 - almost FOUR straight years of podcasting, it's time to take that step for "what's next". For me. For you! Like I discuss in last week's podcast that we all have "waves" to face, how will you decided and TAKE THAT STEP to implementing WHA'TS NEXT?
January 20, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! (After finding out there had been an error with the podcasts I hope you all can hear now. If you haven't yet, go back to 196 and catch up and then come back!) Listen in as the little girl in the podcast image was my inspiration for this week. She had NO FEAR and she FACED HER WAVES! What will help you FACE YOUR "WAVES"? Don't forget about the ZOOM "Ask Sandi" session, Tues, Jan 28th 6pm EST/3pm PST Email me sballard@growingforward.biz for the link!
January 13, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! In this week's podcast, I share an example of how a client is using her WORD of the YEAR already! She's in a frustrated and overwhelmed mindset and, during our coaching session last week, we discussed how her word CHANGE is the KEY!
January 6, 2020
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses. Happy New Year and in this week's podcast, I share the difference between resolutions and goals - yeah yeah you all know don't you? Well, why do people tend to fall short? What will keep you focused and on-track? What will help you during a big decision or a time of frustration? It's something many of us do, but how is important. Listen in and then tell me what YOURS is!
December 30, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - It's time isn't it? Being the last two days of December and 2019 it's time to celebrate YOU and the ONE THING that helped you shift your mindset so you did FINISH STRONG! Listen in this week as I share what some of my clients and listeners determined was their "one thing", and realized what they will CELEBRATE... including ME!
December 23, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Listen in this week as I share what the members of my monthly accountability group will be doing during this holiday time, and the rest of the month (and year!) and myself as well! It's time to just focus on one thing to finish the year out strong. What will YOU focus on? What ONE thing? Email me sballard@growingforward.biz or post in the comments!
December 16, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! One. Isn't that the magic number? It really only takes one. Listen in as I share examples of how I helped people shift their mindset and focus on the RESULTS they did get, even if, like me, they didn't get what "they wanted"! And then, realize it really only takes ONE! One conversation, connection, introduction, client, shift. Listen in, and thinking about what disappointed you and then share with us!
December 9, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! In this week's podcast I share an example of my own! Recently when I realized I wasn't in a "thankful mindset" and I was frustrated and disappointed because of the expectations I had created for others. It was an interesting revelation of my own! I look forward to hearing yours!
December 2, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - Welcome back and thanks for listening! This week I have you do a check-in on your "Finish The Year Strong" worksheet. We have four weeks left in 2019. What results are you playing for this week? How have you done the previous weeks? I share mine and how my "Word of the Year: EXPAND" is aligned and how by not worrying about "permission" to modify when I do things, it's allowing me to FINISH THE YEAR STRONG. Will YOU?
November 25, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - listen in this week as I share comments and realizations from clients from last week's permission to breath and how they are different from Jan 1 to now. And this week learning from clients how they put off some goals because of how they felt it may affect others. And once they received one thing... they were back on-track!
November 18, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - this week's podcast is to remind you to check your weekly RESULTS - so you can figure out who or what you need help with. Yes, I sound like a broken record, but with six weeks left in the year, you may be the one that's holding you back! I give examples of what RESULTS I PLAY FOR each week and help you learn how to FINISH the year STRONG!
November 11, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - One week down, seven to go. How did last week go with PLAYING for RESULTS vs. just finishing tasks? What's your RESULT this week? Listen in as I talk about how life is like running a race on an unfamiliar path. And how you need to DIG DEEP to FINISH STRONG. And, how life is a TEAM SPORT. So, WHO will you ask for help? Reviewing each week will help you identify what you need help with, then... ASK!
November 4, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! - Let's get INTENTIONAL! There are eight weeks left if 2019, at the end, will you be happy with where things are? You've worked hard all year, it's not time to stop, but you are allowed to celebrate your efforts, take a breath and make sure your priorities are in-check! Listen in this week as I give you an assignment to help you DIG DEEPER to PLAY BIGGER. To help you PLAY for RESULTS for the last 58 days of the year and potentially win weekly coaching to ensure those results!
October 28, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION - in this week's podcast I share some examples I heard after last week's "What's Next" ask. I also share what I've done and are doing to fulfill MY answer. As change happens, and traditions come to an end, determining "WHAT'S NEXT", will help you be more intentional with your actions and will help you FINISH THE YEAR STRONG! What are you doing with INTENT?
October 21, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week is all about seeing how unexpected changes can help you achieve your goals! In the last few podcasts, I've guided you through the process to review, make changes to your environment, plan and envision results. This week I want to hear from you on how those changes have actually helped you achieve a goal, much like my unexpected move to California has helped me!
October 14, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast is digging a little deeper to help you PLAY BIGGER! I want you to think past the fact that the results you want are "more money", "more clients", "more sales". Those will happen by doing what? By growing how? I've talked about and asked how you can upgrade your environment, and the growth that's come from it, and now I want you to envision the RESULTS that you want. And from that vision, you can PLAY BIGGER! GO FOR IT!
October 7, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation - thanks for listening and for sharing this podcast with others! This week I touch on what comes from all the purging, changing and upgrading of your environment... along with the new opportunities and adventures! Yes, it's GROWTH! But you have to be willing to do the pre-work to get it. Listen in and reflect on how your year has gone and what all of it has done for YOU!
September 30, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast continues with the theme of change... BUT with a twist. We upgrade our technology, why not our environments? The last few week's I've talked about making the necessary changes to our environment to allow for opportunity and adventure, and what happens from that? Yep, more changes can show themselves. It keeps us from getting complacent! So, will you EMBRACE IT?
September 23, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation - in this week's podcast - that is recorded IN my car, touches on last week with the environmental changes and how it opens up opportunity for the next BIG adventure! Think of it like a "Spring Clean" - what do you really need and what doesn't serve you any more. Once it's done, something new comes around! Listen in and then tell me what your changes are and then your next big adventure will be!
September 16, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! It's unfortunate as grown-A$$ adults we still allow people and their negative attitudes and lack of communication ruin your day or a project you were working on! We allow them to take away our BADA$$NESS! I personally had this happen to me last week and it blind sided me. But I quickly realized I am ME. I am BEING me. If this person wants to say negative things... then she does NOT need to be in my life. I have BIGGER things to tend to!
September 9, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Yes, we all have one. A person that is! A person in our life who poo-poo's on our ideas, goals and dreams. So in-turn we give up on whatever it was we thought we wanted. Was this person playing devil's advocate or just being negative due to his own fears and lack of accomplishments? It's hard to tell sometimes. Listen in this week as I talk about how to try to determine if it's time to purge or if you didn't like the advice because sometimes the "truth hurts".
September 2, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Welcome back and thank you for listening! I this week's podcast I talk about how confidence can be contagious – like a big belly laugh! And when you have confidence, you can share it! Many times, you need encouragement from others to take that step, like I did years ago! Who has given you the confidence you needed to take that step? To keep going?
August 26, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Thanks again for listening! This week I continue to conversation about CONFIDENCE. Confidence IS your BADA$$NESS! I found mine years ago when I trained for my first half-marathon at 40! What about YOU? This week I want you to think about times when that lack of confidence has caused you to NOT take that chance. We've all been there. And what about when you DID FEEL CONFIDENT? What made the difference?
August 19, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast really ties in the last two of how to not become complacent by changing your mindset and allowing your BADA$$NESS to shine! It's not easy to do all the time. Maybe yours has peeked it's head out there here and there. But how do you feel BADA$$? Listen in as I share how changing your mindset will help you find it, and how finding it helps you keep your edge and NOT get complacent!
August 12, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast is about making just a little shift to help change your mindset. Just like my client, who I talked about in last week's podcast, it wasn't easy, but she did it! And, this week I share MY OWN little "breakdown" and what helped me shift my mindset. So, for those people that you know [and it may be you] that if it wasn't for "bad luck you'd have no luck at all", listen in and then watch my social media as I will share the article that helped me!
August 5, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Complacency. We've all been there. But after you've put in the hard work to achieve your goals, define your future... why not "take some time off?" Because, sh*t can go sideways just like it did for my [now] client. Life was good. Business was good. She was the succession plan... until she wasn't. If you stop paying attention... life can pass you by!
July 29, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Welcome back and thank you for listening! This week's podcast – once again – is about learning to face what you don't want to. Learning, like in last week's podcast, to be honest with yourself, and then you can take the steps to Fix that Sh*t! How will you grow if you hit a goal and become complacent? How can you grow if you hit a goal and leave it there? Listen in this week as I talk about my 88 year old friend who is anything BUT complacent!
July 22, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast I dive into how we sabotage our own successes. Like I talked about in last week's podcast about how your reputation precedes you if you don't take a good hard look at yourself! This week you'll have to listen in as I discuss the TWO things we all must do and I challenge you to look in the mirror while you do it!
July 15, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! In this week's podcast I talk about how your REPUTATION precedes you. Last week I talked about how you can become a RIPPLE-EFFECTOR, well you need to make sure it's in a positive way. If you have a habit of canceling, being late, being negative, how does that affect those around you? What's the RIPPLE EFFECT? Listen in and then tell me about a time when your flying monkeys got loose... how did you handle it? How did you recover/repair your reputation?
July 8, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week I remind you to think about how you've empowered someone else and to realize how it has empowered YOU to do more. I also talk about how this "empowerment" you may not realize right away, but it has a RIPPLE EFFECT on others, whether you see it or not. Listen in and then tell me how you are CREATING RIPPLES!
July 1, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation - welcome back and thank you for listening! Yes, this week I give a huge shout out to listener Nicole for doing what I've been preaching about: Changing her mindset and now she is empowering others to PLAY BIG like she is! I talk about how just that mental shift, accepting help, getting rid of the perceptions that are holding you back, CAN help you achieve goals and live the life you've dreamed of. And, how can you empower others to do the same?
June 17, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Have you ever changed your perception about something and it was like "WOW, where has this been all my life?" Your mind was totally blown? Well, in this week's podcast I talk about how to continue to work on shifting your mindset about WHAT IF from a negative to a positive... AND I talk about how someone changed their perception of a certain food and he said, "It was life changing!" It's amazing how much we hold onto that hold us back! What are you holding not?
June 10, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! Thank you for listening and continuing to build upon your successes! This week's podcast continues the theme of changing your mindset on multitasking and how living in the NOW is the most efficient way to achieve more. This week I share how my multitasking affected others and how my WHAT IF's about an upcoming event got me off-track and actually took time away from YOU – my listeners!
June 3, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Welcome back and thanks for listening! This week I talk more about why it's so important to modify your behavior, STOP MULTITASKING so you can achieve more! I know it's never a good time to change, is it? It's like a diet... I'll start after vacation, after this project, or when I have MORE TIME! How will you find more time, if you don't start NOW! You'll hear me talk about how when you're in the NOW... you've WON!
May 27, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Yes, STOP IT NOW! Multitasking that is! It's NOT a SUPER POWER. It won't help you accomplish anything faster or easier. But, you may not understand how to stop. In this week's podcast I get on my soap box about the negative effects MULTITASKING has on your life, business, career. And if you apply my "get it out of your head" tactic, it will help you be more productive and achieve MORE!
May 20, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! This week's podcast talks more about the importance of WHY a clear mind is so important. We've all had those moments when you had a sh&t storm going on in your head, you didn't take the time to write things down, and, well, you had a meeting with a client. How did it go? Listen in and then I look forward to hearing from you!
May 13, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! In this week's podcast, I talk in more depth about WHY getting the "noises in your head" out and onto paper or a whiteboard [like I do with my clients] is so important. How can you move forward, how can you make solid decisions if you have a sh$t storm going on in your head? Listen in this week and then email me or post about now that you've gotten it "Out of your head", you can "Get Into Your Life!"
May 6, 2019
HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION! This week's podcast is all about what keeps you up at night or wakes you up in the morning... and not what I'd like to have happen. Noises. Negative Thoughts? Frustrations and Stress. What about you? Do you have noises in your head? What's weighing on you? If you haven't had the honest conversation with yourself, then, there's probably a lot... even for ME!
April 29, 2019
Welcome back to the weekly podcast No More Excuses! Last week I had some great meetings with clients! They had listened, and then had some tough, honest conversations with themselves. They had big Aha moments and made some big decisions that have them excited about the future and the possibilities. Listen in as the RESULTS from these conversations with themselves has positively affected others as we well as their lives and businesses! It was exciting to see and hear! Have you TALKED TO YOURSELF lately?
April 22, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Welcome back and THANK YOU for listening and sharing this podcast and your thoughts and comments. I this week's podcast I share what I had to OVERCOME to help me achieve a goal. A BIG goal! And, I had no idea what I was doing, so the confidence wasn't there even once I got started! What about you? What have you done to help you achieve a goal?
April 15, 2019
Happy MONDAY MOTIVATION! This week's podcast stems from many coaching conversations lately about their confidence and their ability to, well more like LACK-OF ability to really talk about and share their experience and expertise. It's a fine-line between sounding confident or cocky! How do you gain the confidence to STEP INTO your greatness and realize your BADA$$NESS? Listen in and then share your story!
April 8, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation - There is no time for excuses! This week's podcast stems from a client meeting I had last week where he asked for us to "take a break due to his lack of progress." Listen in as I discuss how the questions I asked him helped him SEE his progress which in-turn helped him achieve the initial goal he came to me for a year ago, build his confidence and relevance in his industry. I also talk about how our confidence is affected by our perspective of our past and our future. What's yours?
April 1, 2019
Welcome to the 1st podcast of my FOURTH year?!! I can't believe I've been doing this for FOUR YEARS! Every. Damn. Week! I hope you are enjoying it. And this week's podcast came from a BIG week for my last week AND having an amazing panel of women at my luncheon on Friday. They all had dreams and goals, but the one thing they decided early-on which helped them KEEP ON KEEPING ON, is that they ARE WORTH IT! All the hard work, effort, frustrations and exhaustions. Are you?
March 25, 2019
Happy Monday Motivation! Well, let's talk DISTRACTIONS! And I'm not referring to being unfocused and playing too long on social media, I'm talking about LIFE. Real-life-distractions. The sh*$ that gets you off-track! This week's podcast I share an example of someone who contacted me and through one conversation and over the course of the week she practiced the "one more thing", but she also had to ADD back in something I PREACH about doing FOR YOU! What's taken you off-track?

Hey everyone! Thanks for listening to this weekly podcast! This week is thinking deeper about the childhood activity of "rubbing your belly and patting your head! How we need to get back to our younger selves and learn how to persevere. How to KEEP ON KEEPING ON in the face of misfortune. Listen in this week as I also talk about a client who is truly living that lesson. And, then contact me and tell me how doing a little more each day than you think you can, can help you KEEP ON KEEPING ON!

We all tried it as a kid! "Rubbing your belly and patting your head" that is! [What were you thinking!] Listen in this week as I talk about how it relates... as adults, working, running a business, staying home with the kiddos, working out, cooking, cleaning... living life... we do it EVERY. DAMN. DAY!

Being just a couple months into the new year, I've been asking all my clients the same question: "What's Next"? Considering last week's podcast was about BURNOUT, why am I asking this question? Not to push them over the edge, but to get them thinking BIGGER! Especially when they've started the year STRONG! It's great to hear how they tie in their "word of the year", even new strategies, and stepping out of comfort zones! What about you? WHAT'S NEXT?
February 25, 2019
BURNOUT! Yep. Last week I met with 3 new clients that all shared the same frustration about their lack of time to take care of themselves, and grow their business. They all had the same issue... focus and keeping their to-do list in their head. And one was very close to burning herself out! Listen in this week as I talk about their solutions to their challenges and how to check in on how YOU are doing!

We all deserve a break, a new pair of jeans, a fun night out, even a trip sometimes. But why do we deny ourselves of these things? Why do we reward our hard work with MORE work? Listen in this week as I talk about my revelation of how I've denied myself for years. Yes, I reward myself with small things for small tasks completed which is necessary to keep me FOCUSED and MOTIVATED, but not bigger things. I have many clients who refuse to "take a break", so this week I challenge you to STOP DENYING YOURSELF!
February 11, 2019
Thanks for listening! This week's podcast is to help reiterate why focus is so important, and what to do when you stay focused and accomplish things... even the tiniest tasks! And that's NOT always the hardest thing first! I reward myself after I accomplish three things on my to-do list. Today I'm going to reward myself after I clean my oven! LOL! What do you do? Or... do you? Rewards are the incentive that keeps us focused and motivated!

It's February. One month down, 11 to go. How will you FINALLY start taking action and making progress toward your goals? Listen in this week as I talk about a client who keeps saying he feels "busy" but not "productive" and what I continue to suggest to him over and over to help him! What about you? What will get you going this month? It's my 2nd Favorite F-WORD!
January 28, 2019
Hey everyone! Thanks for listening! This week's podcast is a little longer, but I talk about a client meeting I had that created great awareness about a struggle they were having. And how, because of that awareness they can make necessary changes! The "struggle is real" part came after we had met when I was at the gym and saw a guy who looked like he was struggling yet I had a great workout... that day! We all struggle. Listen in and see how creating awareness can help you, and others through it.
January 21, 2019
Hey everyone! Welcome back to my weekly podcast No More Excuses! This week I talk more about the importance of AWARENESS and why I wanted you to create it last week. How it helps you know if you're living by your Word of the Year. We're not checking on goals yet... just creating awareness to make sure you're not stuck in the wash-rinse-repeat bullS*t of the first of the year!
January 14, 2019
Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Now that you have your WORD OF THE YEAR, your goals set, your action steps, what's next? Listen in this week as I talk about how my WORD of the YEAR is helping me be intentional. How I am already seeing it help me in regards to my "doing/trying something new in 2019". And, how being AWARE ties it all together.
January 7, 2019
Welcome back! I hope you enjoy this week's podcast as I go through my Word of the Year worksheet! You can download it from my website www.growingforward.biz - Why choose a word? Because it helps you live by your plan! It will help you identify if things are off-track throughout this year. Trust me on this! My Word for 2018 helped me realize WHY I wasn't making progress and I was able to identify how to get back on-track. I look forward to hearing from you!
December 31, 2018
Well, this is the last day of 2018! Are you ready for the New Year? It's time to REVIEW and RESET! This week you have to listen in - preferably with a piece of paper and a pen as I take you through my Year in Review worksheet that I use myself, as well as my clients. Review what you accomplished. WHY you didn't others. And... RESET. It's time to write your new year story! You can also download it from my website www.GrowingForward.biz

Hey there - seven days left in 2018! So, you've lost the weight? Hit your sales goals? Launched a new product or service? Published another book (like ME!)? Well, what's next? Just because you hit your goal doesn't mean you stop there does it? It's all about building upon the success you've had!!! We never stop learning and growing so why would you stop when you've achieved success?
December 17, 2018
Yes, you know you can do MORE. But are you willing to? You've made progress or achieved goals, why do you NEED to do more? That's why I ask what more CAN you do? We all know we "need to..." but do we? Listen in this week as I talk about two clients who have done more. They had achieved success already, so why bother? Because they wanted more. They knew they needed to and DID MORE so they could build upon their current successes. What about YOU? What MORE can YOU DO?
December 10, 2018
What have you accomplished so far this year? Have you taken the time to CELEBRATE? Or "all in a days work"? Last week was my turn to PARTY! It took a lot of planning, prepping and executing to make it happen, but it was worth it! It was fun celebrating the release of my third book. And now... I'm onto what MORE I can do. Just to publish a book isn't enough for me. What about YOU? Before you think about what more you can do... take time to CELEBRATE your SUCCESS!
December 3, 2018
Hey everyone! Last week was crazy amazing with the successes my clients had! It was so much fun hearing how they are stepping INTO their roles, confidence and achieving the success they desire. Listen in and then I'd like you to email me at SBallard@GrowingForward.biz where you are with your year. Your goals. YOUR Success!
November 26, 2018
Does your effort align with your expectations? Think about it! Last week I talked about consistent effort, and how some of my clients did NOT stay consistent, but wanted to whine and complain! What about ASSUMPTIONS? Do you sometimes just ASSUME you've "got this in the bag"? Well, we all probably have. I know I did recently. Listen in this week as I talk about a few things I didn't "just get", and a few clients I call out to see if their efforts align with their expectations. Do YOURS?
November 19, 2018
Hey everyone! The last few podcast's have talked about blame. This week I talk about the success clients have had once they stopped blaming and created consistency. And then, I had one client NOT keep up with it, but she wanted to complain. NOPE You don't do the work, you can't complain! Listen in as I talk about a NEW client who didn't think she was blaming, but where her focus was, was killing her progress.
November 12, 2018
Welcome back to the Monday Motivation podcast No More Excuses! This week I share examples of a HUGE Ah-a moment a client had as well as two others that I met with and pointed out what they were NOT doing which was causing them all to BLAME others. And now they all can move forward as they are OWNING their sh*t and moving forward.
November 5, 2018
This week's podcast is about the TIME CHANGE and turning back the clocks. You got an extra hour of sleep, so why are you complaining? You could have gotten up and NOT slept that extra hour and worked on your FINISH THE YEAR STRONG challenge now couldn't you?! But ya didn't. Well. that's ok, as long as you don't BLAME something, like the time change, or someone for your lack of motivation! Listen in this week and then email me at sballard@growingforward.biz what adjustment you'll make to accommodate!
October 29, 2018
Don't you always think that AFTER you FINALLY make progress on something or accomplish it altogether? You wonder what took so long, why you waited or how you couldn't see how easy it was going to be to get a handle on your "Sh*t Show"! Listen in this week as I talk about the successes my client has made in just TWO weeks! Yep, I'm pretty awesome lol! She is too! She's a BADASS! She just needed to have someone help her "see the forest through the trees"!
October 22, 2018
Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No MORE EXCUSES! In this week's podcast I talk about a client, much like the week before, who is NOT getting things accomplished. We all have that happen don't we? But with him I have seen it continue for months. So I asked him about it and what he can do about it. When you're not the Ringmaster of your own Sh*t Show, you have to bring in the help! But if you don't, the chaos just seems to multiply. It's time to reel it in and figure out HOW to get things done!
October 15, 2018
This past week was a fun week of celebrating and finding clarity about my role with my clients challenges. I received a pair of socks from a friend for my birthday that said, "Ringmaster of the Shit Show", and that I am! Listen in this week as I talk about how that is my role with my clients and how I helped one client gain control and handed over the reigns and she became the star! I'd love to hear what you think you are the Ringmaster of in your world!
October 8, 2018
If you're not a habit lover, then you probably don't have any consistency in your life as well do ya?! Hate to say it... WAIT! No I don't! LOL! Consistency is key people! Listen in this week as I talk about the results from my clients and listeners and even myself being CONSISTENT!
October 1, 2018
In this week's podcast I talk about how you ONLY have 92 days left in the year, but you also STILL HAVE 92 days in the year to make progress toward your goals. What are you doing to make progress? I've challenged you to FINISH THE YEAR STRONG. I'm in the middle of 3 challenges, and when I realized when I wasn't making progress on 2 of them, I took the time to figure out WHY and HOW to get back on track to FINISH STRONG!
September 24, 2018
We all have unfinished business. Goals left to "next year", a good ol "college try"... but how will you end the year if you don't give the last 100 Days of 2018 your best effort? Listen in this week as I talk about how baby steps can help create progress toward your unfinished business, find your BADASSNESS and help you FINISH THE YEAR STRONG!
September 17, 2018
This week's podcast I refer to two clients. One who completed and is continuing with her "habit challenge" and doing GREAT. And another went "all-in" and just about crashed and burned in other areas of her life! Excitement for new things is great, as long as you don't ignore and avoid other areas! That's why I created the 100 Days To Finish Strong Challenge. To help you FINISH STRONG without losing sight of the bigger picture. Check it out www.100DaysToFinishStrong

September 3, 2018
