Women In Business Need To Get Naked

Women in business need to get naked.





Oh yeah! get naked but, please don’t take your clothes off.  When I say get naked I want you to start to advertise, advertise and advertise.  Stand behind your product, stand behind your service, stand behind your brand.  You have to find savvy ways to tell people what you do without shoving it down their throats. Get naked by showing the world what you do and what your working with.

In order for you to be the ONE, to be the TOP CHOICE, you have to be willing to get naked.  Take off what you have been wearing and start to put on the face of your business.  Show people what your hidden talents are.  Show people what you are working with.  Show people what you are passionate about.   My mother always told me if you got it flaunt it.  Take mommies advice and flaunt it.

In order to get noticed you have to show more, be fun and be consistent. Tell your people about your business in a different and exciting way.

Start to get naked by doing the following:

  1. Send out a tip of the week, or day and give it a catchy title. For example, if you are a baker, you may want to have a “Sweet Tooth tip of the week” or include your name in it for branding “Carlton’s Sweet Tip”.
  2. Stop covering up your brand, expose it by blogging. 70% of my revenue comes from clients who are avid readers of my blog.  Think about how you can incorporate your product or service into a blog post 2-3x a month. For example as a Relationship Coach you may want to do a 3 part series called “What’s Love Got To Do With It” part 1 and then offer an relationship laser session for $97.
  3. Get in front of a camera. Don’t be afraid to do a video every once in a blue.  This gives people the opportunity to feel like they know you better and this helps to build trust.

This is just some of the ways you can begin to get naked with your business.  It is all about exposing yourself and what you have to offer.


Do you find yourself stuck? Do you find yourself with a list of items that don’t get done, or maybe a feeling of overwhelm when you think of your to do list? Are you ready to balance maybe some of your life gradually while growing your business?

F’ing Up: Lifestyle Freedom

Today’s F’ing up story is about FREEDOM. What does freedom feel like for you? What does freedom smell like for you? How does freedom feel?

When you look at freedom do you experience the benefits of being free or do you find yourself carrying dead weight. The weight of being mentally bound by believing you were not good enough, smart enough, tough enough, young enough, too big enough or too short enough to do.

Freedom requires you to let go and release your mind, heart and soul from the fear that someone or something on the outside can stop you, harm you or hurt you on the inside.

Freedom requires you to let go from the self imposed, self inflicted limitations of feeling and believing you are not enough and you are doing something wrong or you are wrong I some form or fashion. You don’t need to be fixed; you just need to be free. Let me repeat that…you don’t need to be fixed you just need to be free. You must not and will no longer let anyone, anything; any thoughts confine, define or bind you.

When you allow yourself the permission to be free, you will be able to use the gifts that God has given you with no restraints. You allow yourself to develop, to be used and not abused and you begin to leave a legacy.

The goal is to get free, to leverage and maximize the use of your gifts so that you leave a mark, make a contribution to good. Not just using them with the intent to earn money. Even though you may earn lots of money, you want to use the gifts to show gratitude for being here.

Give! Spend! Unconditionally! Maximize every opportunity to give freely! Show you are grateful. As you step into this new level of freedom, then you will BE the gift to someone; everyone and everywhere.

You will BE the gift to everyone that comes on your path. Think it! Plan it! Envision it! Feel it! Put effort to it! Be it! Live it! See yourself and all your thoughts, ideas, talents as gifts from God given to you for the purpose of giving to someone else. Give the gifts away, everyday! Reach, stretch, and give!

Freedom is a state of mind. Your freedom is your business; you are not required to share your new state of mind, just your gifts. Let your actions do the talking.

I Am Free.

Look Inside Yourself and Remember Who You Are

“Simba, you have forgotten who you are. Look inside yourself. You are more than what you have become.” King Mufasa.

This is a powerful message. “you are more than what you have become”. When I observe that most people never tap into their talent, it just saddens me. Use it while you can, I refuse to be 70years old flying to speak, here and there.  Ripping the stage from one conference to the next…heck I want to chill out like Maya Angelou.

Many of us want to wait till the right time, when is that?

I am positioning my business and utilizing my full potential so that my children can step into their full potential.  I want my daughter to take the mic and do her thing, I want her to be positioned to speak at conferences, conduct trainings and activate women world wide. I want my sons to adopt my leadership skills, check concrete pavers san diego.

How about you? Can you look in the mirror and honestly say you’re living up to your fullest potential? Are  you holding back and holding out by not being all that you can be, or have you just “forgotten who you are”?


Watch the video, grab some tissues.

Failure to Thrive Syndrome: visions and dreams

One of the big mistakes I made with my visions and dreams is thinking that I had to be a particular kind of person, or be in the “right place at the right time” or have the right background in order for my vision to manifest.

When I took a good look at some of the past success stories, this was far from the truth. I did not need the right background, I needed to take the time out to nurture and cultivate my vision, I had to nurture the burning desire for success and be willing to use my natural mother instincts which govern success and growth.

Many clients of mine have experienced Failure to Thrive Syndrome.  What’s that you ask?  Well, here is what happens to infants who suffer from Failure to Thrive Syndrome and tell me if this is something you are going through or have overcome in the past.

Infants require basic nurturing needs to be met, nothing strenuous but necessary. Such as love, touching, feeding, holding, keeping warm and dry, some attention, etc.  In fact, so powerful is the need to be nurtured that without it, the baby can develop Failure to Thrive Syndrome, which often leads to infant death.  The infant’s body is telling it that something is wrong, the infant begins to internalize this reaction to non reaction and it results into something fatal or deadly.  Please keep in mind; I am not a physician or pediatrician.

As it pertains to your vision and your dreams, this is equally serious.  If you do not love, touch, feed, hold, and nurture your vision and your dreams their reaction to growth is zero to none.  Why do I use such a serious analogy to get my point across?  I use this analogy to let you know that your dream and vision is your contribution to the world.  Your vision may save thousands of lives; your dream pursued and acted on, may keep the next individual from giving up.

When a baby enters in the world, that is an individual who has a destiny, a mandate and a mission already assigned to him/her.  When a dream is birthed or a vision activated, that is a solution to a major problem, no matter how big or small, it is a valuable and worthy solution.

If you feel as if you are losing the life of your vision and dream, just take some time to give it some TLC (tender, love and care) before putting it out to the world. Nurture your vision and dreams, cultivate it, feed it the amount of quality time it needs.  Before you know it, your vision and dream will nurture, cultivate and feed you. $$$

Activate the Champion in YOU

Have you noticed that depressed people tend to get more depressed? Angry people get more angry? Passionate people tend to get more excited? Motivated people tend to get more motivated? Joyful people tend to be me more happy. What kind of momentum are you breeding in your day to day interactions? You need to gain clarity about what kind of person you are.  What are you breeding, joy or pain?

Are you breeding champions ready to break down barriers, overcome challenges, a mixed breeds who may carry fear or a combination of ambition and confusion or a breed that may be angry, unforgiving or selfish?

Choose to be a person of change. Life is not a dress rehearsal. You only get once chance at this. This is YOUR life.  If others want to walk around angry, upset and fearful that’s their life.  This is your life and what you breed determines the fruit you bear.  Attitude is everything and the attitude you project is what is dispersed in your business, your relationships, in your professional and personal life.

Here is a quick video to activate the champion in you.

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place… and I don´t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain’t about how hard you hit… It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward… how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That´s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain´t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain´t you! You´re better than that!” (Rocky Balboa)

Life Strategies: Stay Grounded Without Settling


Living life on purpose means that you have strategies in place that help you go from the land of not enough to the land of more than enough.

Life has many ways of putting a hold on us as a way to mold us for our mission.  From work related pressure, family stress, health issues, political discomfiture and religious principalities.

What comes out when you apply life strategies to your life?

What comes out of you when you are squeezed, watered, shaped, reshaped, pressed, pulled, molded and formed?

More likely you will wreak the scent of “settling”. Smelling as if you have showed in guilt, envy, jealousy, unhappiness, frustration, anger, depression, fear, hate, embarrassment, sorrow, nervousness, shame, pride, ego and or doubt. This aroma is something that you picked up during the process and have now gone from weeds, to stems, to branches.

Your life strategy was to start a business and you suffered financially because you refused to believe in yourself enough to charge more, so you settled for less.

Fear was a branch you grew.

Your life strategy was to build a happy home and you were emotionally, physically or either mentally abused, so you settled for less.

Depression was another branch you grew.

When the strategy fails, you plan again, you set a new goal, you devise a clever way to accomplish and overcome.

If we are to possess the land, why are you looking for a corner in the box?

If you believe that you are destined for greatness, why are you afraid to step out of your comfort zone?

If you are looking to be grounded, why do you allow other people to uproot you?

If you are waiting for your knight and shining armor to show up, why are you trying to change him into what he’s not?

You must remember, remember, remember your thoughts, choices, actions have great power. You are not just a piece of flesh at the mercy to whatever life puts on your plate.  You are a co-creator of the reality you live in. Life strategies only work if you work them. The next time you feel discouraged, or disempowered. Know that you are anything but powerless and never, ever, ever, ever settle for less.

If you would like to discuss how you can experience a personal and professional breakthrough, schedule a confidential session with me by visiting, let’s get to the bottom of this once and for all.

Monday Prescription: Reinventing Yourself

Work in progress: “Raven Gets In”

by Walt Pascoe


There is something phenomenal going on in you.

Do you feel a little uncomfortable?

Do you feel pushed and pulled to do something else?

Do you feel as if you want to cry because things are not working out?

Do you feel impatient with the level of success you have now and ready to uplevel?

Do you feel like what you want to do is not what you are supposed to do?

Do you feel over excited like something is about to happen?

Do you feel sad at times as if something is fading away or dying inside?

Well these feelings that you have been having is symptoms to what I observed as the “REINVENTION” virus.

When I realized that for myself, I began to get scared because it required me to reinvent myself.

Reinventing yourself requires a brand change, a new direction of your business/life, a shift in my inner circle and a personal and emotional check up.  Ofcourse it is going to be an uneasy process, but when something phenomenal is going on in you, you have no choice but to strip out the weeds surrounding you and begin to help the real you breathe and become visible.

The ability to reinvent yourself is one of the key tools you need in order to stay ahead of the game, with new ideas, products and a market who is thirsty and a closer relationship with your family.  It makes no sense to operate in non productive habits.  If your business/relationships are broken and/or unsustainable and you have given it your all, don’t wait too long before you decide to change and begin the reinvention process.  That is why I say something phenomenal is going on.

It has to do with change, growth and evolution.  It has to do with women, and moms.  There are changes that are taking place in the hearts and minds of us women that are going to literally rock this world.

Women/Moms are changing their minds about who they are, who they service, what their role is in their family and in the world.  What role are you playing? Do you need to reinvent yourself?

August is the month for Acceleration

This is ACCELERATION month.

We need to kick it up a notch this month. When the velocity of an object changes it is said to be accelerating. Acceleration depends on the change in velocity and velocity is a vector quantity — one with both magnitude and direction. Acceleration occurs anytime an object’s speed increases, decreases, or changes direction.

Are you going to ACCELERATE this month? What?

Are you going to expand and stretch yourself this month?

Are you ready to change your velocity?

Don’t just get excited and say yes, you must believe it. You must declare it and take action on it.

This month I challenge you to get in expanded conversations, travel outside of your day to day life and outside of your day to day operations at work and in your biz.

What do you do that propels you and others forward?

How can you go beyond your comfort zone this month?

The key to moving forward and ACCELERATING this month is to look for opportunities to be of service, to give and to share.

Don’t parade around talking about ACCELERATING your life, with skeptical friends and relatives.  Their skepticism can overwhelm you and slow you down. Do this ACCELRATION silently and let your faith develop and your goals be manifested, then tell them, “wow, in August I changed the direction of my life”.

Walk the talk.

Be patiently persistent this month; keep your intent alive and strong.  You can ACCELERATE your life in both magnitude and direction.

I want to encourage you to leverage what you have scheduled this month, if you struggle visit for advice.  What are the things that will move you forward in your business and career? What needs to happen in order for you to ACCELERATE forward like never before? What programs do you need to sign up for? Events you need to attend? And people you need to connect with?

Talk to me, I love comments and make sure that you do these 3 things.

  1. Sign up for the FREE 6-day ecourse.
  2. Be a part of the Ask Lucinda Cross call tonight at 8pm EST (FREE)
  3. Visit the After Hours Mastermind Group and let me know if you will be one of the 10 joining the creative visionaries who make things happen this month.

HELP I Need a Coach

Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.

– John Whitmore

When it comes to getting the support you need this year, consider partnering up with a business coach.  When it comes to finding the right fit for you and your business needs, consider what ESPN had to say about some of the top coaches they picked and the characteristics and legacies that these coaches have built.  As you read the list, figure out whether you need a coach that is in your face and pushes you to the limit, a coach that outlines strategies and processes, a coach that supports you in certain aspects and levels of your life. You may need a  personal trainer, relationship coach, marketing coach, spiritual coach, life coach, etc…  The big question is: What level of guidance and support do you need right now?
