The 3-Sided Phone Call That Got Me To See EVERYTHING Differently

Sooooo… there was no away around it. I was BOMBING the call.  Hard. Waaaaay back (when I was starting my training on how to permanently eliminate people’s headtrash), I had a practice/training call with a friend that was being monitored by a mentor. And I was bombing it. I was saying the wrong things. I […]

You Get to Choose…

A few years before Columbine, an awkward, bespeckled teen named Kevin came to *MY* high school wearing a long black trench coat over his black jeans and black shirt. To this day we don’t know if he’d planned his violent attack, or if it was spontaneous.  Either way… I was the sole victim. On this […]

Reflecting on (my CLIENTS’) Wild + Crazy 2018.

Recently, I reflected back on *my* year.  Here are a few of my favorite MindFix client wins in 2018 that come to mind as I sat down to reflect this morning….  There was the Colorado entrepreneur who ran a successful business for over a decade but was stuck at 6-figures in annual revenue. Saw no possibility for […]

This year is going to be so different. All the kids are gonna like me this year!!!

[Loud fail buzzer…. Nope.] I never looked forward to Jan. 1 as a kid—instead, I got pumped about the possibility of a fresh start every September on the first day of school. I’d get SO pumped because SURELY summer vacation would clear the slate, and all the kids would just conveniently FORGET they hated my […]

We’re all blind to this.

So last night, I THOUGHT my CPA had made a typo. Surely he’d MEANT to write “$8,000” in his email. Nope. He ACTUALLY meant it when he wrote, “Go ahead and write a ‘make-up’ check for $88,000 this week, Erin.” Um, that WAS NOT part of the plan. I hired him this year and paid […]

I’m on a mission and I will not be stopped

In the middle of a sentence during an interview last week, the interviewer abruptly interrupted me and said (rather aggressively) “STOP. JUST, STOP. You’re trying to tell me you stop people fr om worrying about things they’ve worried about their ENTIRE LIVES…in a matter of HOURS? Are you ACTUALLY, SERIOUSLY saying that….?” ………silence………… I froze […]

The ONE thing that gets us such incredible results at MindFix?

Lately I’ve been getting asked about the secrets behind HOW my new business has grown SO quickly. Friends, strangers, followers, and colleagues have been asking how—in BARELY OVER 1/2 A YEAR—my weeks continue to be filled with too-good-to-be-true occurrences like…. having 2 top business coaches/mentors approaching and pitching ME — to work with THEM. being […]

How to stop being blind to your own progress

The “after” photo = me. Yesterday. After 2 months of hard work. Think I would have immediately felt great about my progress? Nope. As I was laying there testing my tight hip flexors, my first thoughts were… “This feels SO TIGHT.” “I still don’t feel flexible.” “This feels hard.” I was comparing my experience *in […]
