If you believe Facebook ads will work for you and that you’ll master them easily then they will and you will.
If you believe that they won’t and that it’s hard then they won’t and it will be.
If you believe you will be super successful no matter what happens in your life or business, then you will.
If you doubt that you will ever reach your goals because things keep going wrong and you feel people and the world are against you, then you won’t reach your goals and everything will be against you.
If you believe that everything is and will be fine, then it will be.
If you believe that people don’t respect you, then they won’t.
Choose your beliefs wisely.
They determine how your life goes.

When unexpected things happen such as staff members leaving, or realising you’re not happy with where you are right now… it can totally feel like you are not moving forward and are trapped or moving backwards…
But the thing is, in life you are never going backwards, you are always moving forwards… and if you ever feel like you are stuck or going in reverse, here are some things that can help.
Let me know what you think.
When a client complains, these are normally the reasons why…
- Their expectations were not met. They did not get the results they were hoping for.
- They are having a not very nice time in other areas of their life, and so they are allowing that unhappiness to leak out in many different ways, including their experience with you.
- You made a mistake / did something wrong / didn’t treat them very well / didn’t make them feel good. Maybe you were also having a bad time / bad day?
- They just weren’t the right type of person for you and you weren’t the right type of person for them. Not a good energetic match. You just didn’t feel right about each other.
- They didn’t feel cared about or important, they felt taken for granted or used. Their emotional experience with you was not very good. Maybe you didn’t ask about them at all and just talked about yourself, or maybe you didn’t talk to them at all.
- They didn’t actually value their purchase, take care of it, follow instructions or take responsibility, and so chose to blame you for this instead of owning it because deep down they knew they were in the wrong but didn’t want to admit it. Angry at themselves.
I have definitely been on BOTH ENDS of all of these situations myself in my years as a business owner and as a client.
And the most important thing you can do about each of them is learn from them.
When you get a complaint, you can certainly apologise to the client and have a conversation with them (if they are open minded enough to allow this to happen)…
And you can ask yourself “how can I prevent this from happening again in the future” and you can continue to improve the way you do things and treat people lovingly.
I am a firm believer that there is ALWAYS room for improvement in all areas of a business (and your mindset) and you should always be focussing on improving some area of your self or business.
A business that is perfect or without issues is a dead business, a closed business.
If you’re not prepared to go into business accepting and expecting that there will always be something to work on, fix or improve, then just don’t do it.
Go and get a job instead.
And also remember, that WHEN SOMEONE COMPLAINS, they want to feel heard, cared about, listened to, and important.
So if you can put your own ego aside and help them to feel the way they want to feel, you will be able to turn more complaints and unhappy customers into loyal lifelong raving fans.
(If you have a team, or anyone else who is communicating with your clients or handling complaints, it is super important that they know and understand all of this too).

Imagine your thoughts are like powerful magnets.
And everything you think about is slowly being attracted to you with this magnetic energy.
The bigger or heavier the thing, the slower it comes but it is coming.
Are your thoughts primarily focussed on things you do want? Or things you don’t want?
Either way, they’re coming.
At any time you can make a decision to change a thought & get rid of a magnet.
You can let one go, and pick up another.
Everything you are experiencing in your physical reality first started as a thought.
Your home, your car, your tv, computer, phone, your relationships and even YOU at one point were just a thought in someone’s mind.
A decision to be acted upon.
A vision or idea that came to life.
Your business once did not exist.
It started as a thought.
Now look at it!
Be aware of your thoughts often, because you will bring into your reality that which you think about most often whether you desire it or not.
If you want to attract, experience and create a reality that you love…
Be sure to choose to think of what you do want each and every day.
Write it down to solidify it and make it real, and remind yourself of it frequently.
You are the creator, the source, of everything in your life!
Make sure you are creating the life you want to live. 💫
Love, Carissa xo.
A lot of people ask me why nobody likes their stuff on Facebook. The reason is simple and the solution is an easy fix. 😉
What are you going to do differently to get more engagement?
(If you need ideas, I have a short ebook called “social skillz” which has a content idea for every day of the month for you
You know when you just get a weird VIBE about some people?? Even in their social media posts?
That’s their energy you’re picking up on.
If you really pay attention, you can usually tell the people that are acting from a place of selfishness, desperation, negativity or greed…
You can also tell the people who are genuinely wanting to help, add value, contribute, educate or entertain…
It’s important to know this because this means the people who are seeing & reading your posts are picking up on your energy too.
So think twice before you post.
How are you feeling?
What is your intention?
How is this post benefiting those who are seeing it?
And how is it benefiting you?
Remember, in order to get what you want, you’ve got to be offering something of value in return.
If nobody values what you’re sharing, they’re just not going to respond! 🤷♀️
So are you getting responses from what you are sharing (whether that be posts or ads)?
If not why do you think that is?
Not sure, get in touch, maybe I can help 🙂

How to pump yourself before facing people.
Are you an INTROVERT / EXTROVERT like me?
If you are anything like me and LOVE your time to yourself, it can be challenging to pump yourself up when you are required to interact with others.
So in this video, I share with you my tips on how I pump myself up when I am about to interact with clients or my team.
You can’t help anyone by holding yourself back.
It is not selfish to put yourself out there and share what you’ve got with the world.
It is selfish to keep it all inside you.
If you have a vision, an idea, a goal…
That is going to make your life better while simultaneously improving the lives of others (as a good business should)…
Then you are doing the world a disservice by holding yourself back from sharing it.
That thing that you keep thinking about doing but that you’re afraid of?
You’ve got to decide whether you’re going to let fear win, or if you’re going to flip that around to come from a place of love for yourself, and love for those whom you are wanting to help.
Anytime I am scared, anxious or doubting myself in anyway…
I come back to my favourite question:
“What would this look like if I was coming from a place of love right now?”
And let my answer determine the next move. ✌🏼
What does it look like for you??
