Could your business run without you if you or your family members got really sick?
I was all planned and ready and prepared and excited to get stuck back into work yesterday after coming home from Bali… until…
My husband was up ALL night Sunday puking and pooping and I got no sleep both from the sounds and smells and worrying about him.
My toddler was supposed to go to daycare on the Monday so I could get work done, however when I got up to him in the morning, he had runny poo’s too so I decided best to keep him home.
So, ALL MY PLANS gone out the window, as I had to drop everything and look after my 2 boys.
I have seriously turned into one of those crazy germaphobe mums running around the house cleaning and sanitising everything…
“I will not get it, I will not get it, I will NOT get it”.
We saw a doctor yesterday and both are starting to be on the mend as of today thank goodness…
But thankfully, due to my systems and my incredible team members, any time anything like this happens in my life, my business still operates as usual.
Can you say the same about yours?
If not, start to think seriously about it.
If you want your business to be able to scale, to keep growing, expanding, even to be able to be duplicated, franchised, or sold for a good profit one day…
You need your business to be able to run without you.
There is no such thing as a magic pill, or a specific coach or program, or book, or event that will help you live the life of your dreams.
The only thing that will help you get to where you want to go, is you making the decision to do whatever it takes.
It’s you saying YES to things even when they scare you.
It’s you investing in yourself, continually, and focussing on long term success, rather than short term gain.
It’s you always prioritising your education and never getting sucked into the temptation of telling yourself you know “enough” or that you don’t need to learn more.
It’s you saying NO to people and things that drain you, make you tired, and waste your time and therefore your life.
It’s living in the moment, being grateful for everything and everyone around you, and seeing yourself as connected to them not separate to them.
It’s believing in the power of your mind, of the universe, and it’s being the type of person you want to attract more of into your life.
People who have everything they’ve ever wanted are not lucky.
They just decided they were not going to settle for not having it.
Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t have something.
You can have all of it.
And the only things you need to sacrifice are the things that aren’t making you happy anyway.
I wanted to touch on what to do when you encounter an asshole or a negative person in your life because reality is, these people are everywhere.
I chose to share this now because I recently experienced a really negative person in my life and I wanted to share my thought process around how to handle these situations with the best outcome in mind.
I was recently giving a presentation on Facebook Marketing for the Australian Beauty Collective on the Gold Coast.
I had attended the presentation still feeling unwell and needing to clear my throat a lot and having to stop with little coughing fits. At one point I was coughing and apologising when this dude said. ‘then stop talking.’
He then later made a remark about my speech and how it wasn’t relevant to him.
When something like this happens your first instinct is to feel said and think, ‘why didn’t they like me.’
Well, after years of practice, my approach to these kinds of people is different.
I now understand that these people behave the way they do because they want to feel more important.
If you can understand that and see thingd from that perspective you can start thinking things like, ‘it’s good to know I’m in a really good place and that I’m not like that,’ or even feel sorry for them and thinking, ‘dude, do you need a hug?’
Basically, if people put you down it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with the fact that they feel inadequate and crave power and control. It feeds their ego.
So if you encounter an asshole, feel sorry for them and be grateful that they showed you how not to be ;).

One of the biggest things, actually, THE biggest thing that will help you reach your goals in life… is the way you think.
You probably know this already.
But I’m telling you again because it’s so important.
If you THINK that you can do anything and that no-matter what happens in your life, you will reach your goals, some way or another… then guess what? You will reach them.
It’s been proven true again and again.
It doesn’t matter your skill levels, your background, what race or gender you were born…
There are huge success stories everywhere, from people who simply believed they could achieve things.
On the other hand… if you like the idea of reaching a goal, but you doubt the fact that you will ever reach it (you think you can’t have it) then you wont ever have it.
It really is that simple.
Mindset is EVERYTHING.
You are either inspired by successful people, or you are jealous and critical of them.
You either believe you can change, or you think you can’t.
You either see yourself as amazing, and powerful, and capable of anything…
Or you talk down to yourself and don’t see yourself as anything special.
You are either happy for other people when they are happy, or you hate them because you choose not to be happy within yourself.
Your thoughts equal your reality.
Be aware of them, always.
If you choose a bad thought, acknowledge it, and try another one.
You can retrain your brain.
You are in control of your results in life.
All you have to do is believe you are.
Let go of blame. Take responsibility.
You have made your life what it is right now, and you have the power to make a change at any time.
It all starts with thinking that you can.
SO I’ve been trying some NEW boosted post strategies lately on Facebook, and had some massive success with one of them in particular in November.
I managed to make a whopping $20,000 in sales in 5 days from a short series of boosted posts.
I did these boosted posts quite differently to how I normally do & teach them, and I thought it would be quite selfish to keep this strategy all to myself.
So if you want to know how I did it, and how you can do the same… keep reading…
What I was actually selling was a short online course at a price point of $155… However I believe you could absolutely use this method to successfully sell anything (as long as people want it).
I’ve decided to reveal my entire strategy of how I did this, and take you in behind the scenes of my ads & boosts and how I did the entire thing.
The wording, the images, the targeting, the selling…. everything…
I’ll be sharing it all LIVE inside a secret Facebook group too, so you can ask as many questions as you like.
This Live Training is scheduled for 8pm on 2nd Jan 2018 (QLD Australia AEST Time)

The power of sharing YOUR story and being REAL is such a powerful thing.
I have built my entire business right now just off the back of my actual real life story and who I am and what I’ve done.
Recently, one of my clients in my Wolfpack Mastermind, Jessi, wrote a Facebook post sharing her story, and it immediately got picked up by a local NEWS channel and her and her business were featured on TV the very next day!!!
It was inspired by one of my other clients and team members’ Taryn Vynhalek stories, (which she has been running as an ad on Facebook and grown a very successful business from too)!
I’ll show you them here in a sec!
People go NUTS over a good story.
Stories are essentially how we as human beings communicate and form emotional connections with one-another.
Movies. Books. Speeches. Songs… stories make the world go round!
And everyone has a unique story. Including you.
Your story is unlike anyone else’s because it is your own.
After reading this I encourage you to go and share your own story.
Be real. Be vulnerable. Let people IN to your life.
Something great just might come from it xo

SO NOW, are you going to go and tell YOUR STORY???
If so, feel free to share it into my “Coffee With Carissa” Facebook group, as I’d love to see!!!
And all inspirational stories are welcome there!
The way you run your business (and your life) is your choice.
You don’t have to do things the way you think they have to be done, or the way others in the industry are doing things, or the way someone tells you you should.
Everything that you’re doing and not doing right now you are choosing to do, or are doing because of a choice you once made.
Realising this makes you realise you have choice at any moment to change anything you like.
I made a choice many years ago that I wanted to live my life & run my business the way I wanted to and not the way others did, or told me I should…
And you CAN do the same.
You just need to give yourself permission.
You make the rules. You make the choices.
I chose to not work in my business.
I chose to be able to choose what I work on and when.
I chose to hire more people rather than trying to do everything myself.
I chose to say thanks but no thanks to people who gave me advice that didn’t feel right.
I chose to say YES to my passions and no to things that don’t excite me.
I chose to do what needed to be done to get to where I wanted to be.
I chose not to make excuses.
Choose to be different, and live your dreams without comparing them to anyone else’s, or worrying about what others will think of them.
✌🏼You are unique. Let your choices reflect that.
I was asked on www.coffeewithcarissa.com “How can I promote my business if I don’t have any money to spend on ads?”
So, I went LIVE inside the #coffeewithcarissa Facebook group this week and gave away: 5 Ways To Promote Your Business Without Spending Any Money On Advertising.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments 😊
