Top 10 Powerful Lists to Manage Your Life

Do you ever lie in bed at night thinking about everything that you wanted to do when you started your day?
We start the day with great intentions, many of which will not happen – mostly because we don’t remember them.
Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, I had many of those sleepless nights. Do you want to know what I liked least about them? I would forget the majority of my mental lists by the morning and would sit there drinking my coffee frustrated and overwhelmed, wondering what it was I had to get done before I left for work, at lunch or after work. I’m sure you know how it goes.
Now, I am the queen of power lists and no longer waste time shifting from one project to another. I know what I want to do, what I need to do, and when I would like to get it done. It has given me peace of mind and freedom to enjoy my days without feeling guilty or pressured by external demands on my time and energy.
If your lists don’t do their job, there’s a way to manage your tasks so they make sense and make it easier to get things done without a lot of forethought or preparation.
In the video, I share a way to organize what needs to get done using lists, but not just any lists. These are powerful lists that you really use to get the tasks done.
Watch Now and Learn The Top 10 Best Lists to Manage Life
Emptying your head of all of these details you’ll be able to refer to your list and get started without missing a beat. Making you a miracle worker without the “work.”
What I’m sharing with you here is something I created from my work in creating The Keys to Live with Play, which I share in my book, Be a Spiritual Girl in a Material World, teaches us how to calm the chaos in our lives so we can move from surviving through our days to thriving though our days.
I have so much gratitude for you and your presence. Together we can heal from the inside out and make a bigger impact on the healing of this Material World.
As always, I am here for you. Share your ah-has, comments, questions, and thoughts in the comment section below.

Do you know things could be easier, but aren't sure where to start?
Be a Spiritual Girl in a Material World: Achieve Radical Personal Success Without Sacrificing Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness
This book will help you calm the chaos, reclaim your time, and transform the way you experience your world.

I truly hope it helps women connect to their inner spirit, so they could feel as good on the inside as they make things look on the outside.

How to Engage Your Ideal Travel Clients on Social Media

  Do you wonder how to engage your Ideal Travel Clients on social media?
Engaging fans on social media seems easy in theory. But when you are actually trying to do it amidst all the noise on your chosen social media platform, getting the attention of your Ideal Travel Clients gets more challenging.
But that doesn’t mean it cannot be done.
Have I ever shared with you how I got my first retreat? It came through my social media connections.
The Facebook Message That Launched a Successful Travel Business
It was 2012 and someone who was planning on opening an eco-luxury boutique hotel in Bali, Indonesia. Because of my content and profile on LinkedIn, the gentleman opening the resort thought his place was the perfect site for one of my sojourns. At the time I was creating girlfriend getaways for small groups – and his hotel would open spring of 2013 and if I brought a group in his first year, he would give me the rooms at a 50% discount.
At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with the information, but I listened.  I checked out his hotel.  He emailed me the plans, picture of his model, and construction site.  Fascinated, I started to daydream about selling out that hotel.  It was only 12 rooms.  I had only started my business about 9 months before, but I thought I could do it if I had the right opportunity.
Then, a few weeks later I received a Facebook message from a woman.  She said one of her friends who followed me sent her my information and she had a fun idea she was hoping I could help her with. She was a producer from California who just finished yoga training and wanted to take a small group of her friends to show off her new skills.
Suddenly the trip I was dreaming about in Bali came into vision and I pitched my idea for an exclusive luxury retreat.
That was it. The deal was done 5 months later. 12 women when on that trip to Bali.  The sojourn was transforming for everyone. The leader, the resort, and my travel business. I was hooked.
This is the reason it is not enough to just post on social media, you want to engage your Ideal Travel Clients in a multi-dimensional conversation.
This was not my first group.  I did 100+ person cruises and business retreats as I learned in travel training, but they were never this lucrative.
My First $36,000 Commission Check
I earned my wisdom and over $36,000 in commissions from this retreat.  For 2 years I continued to cultivate retreat leaders and help them sell out their retreats and made great money along the way, but something was missing for me.
As the Wellbeing Messenger, I help people heal through travel, but I wanted to do more.  So I went from creating retreats to teaching how to develop and sell out retreats.  I became passionately obsessed about online marketing because of my journey.
Social media played such a big part of my success which is why I embrace it today.
In this week’s #TBSC Power Training Session, I share the 3 elements of engagement for social media marketing success for travel agents. Click the link to watch now:
 3 Elements to Engage on Social Media and Grow Your Travel Business  
Social media marketing success isn’t’ complicated once you know what to do and how to do it.
That’s where this training session comes in. In it, I share why you want to market your travel business on social media and how to make the time you invest there worthwhile to grow your travel business with the people you want to work with most.
Social media marketing is most successful when your posts entertain, inspire and educate.
After you check out the vlog, I’d love to hear from you.  Visit our Travel Business Success Circle Facebook Group so we can continue the conversation by sharing:
Is social media marketing working for you?  If it is, what are you doing that others are not?  If it is not, share your biggest challenge.

3 Steps to Find What You Really Want in Life

  Have you ever taken a moment to ask yourself what you want more of in your life?
For decades I lived by default.  I accepted everything I received at face value and felt I had no control over what came into my life. And without question, I’d jump into the expected action.
Of course, lots of good things happened for me, but when all was said and done, they were not all the things that were good for me. I accepted jobs and worked hard when I didn’t like the people I worked for and it made me miserable. I accepted invitations from people that didn’t treat people well because they were “nice” to me… until they weren’t.
Does Any of this sound familiar?
What I realize now is the problem with living this way is that we give up the ability to create a life that honors the reason we are here, our true purpose.
The key to living in a way that honors your desires is not in spending, wasting, or killing time, but investing it.
As you know, I’m all about investing my time and it’s because now that I have seen how people, including myself, can change how they engage and feel each day just by getting clear about what they want.
  1 2 3 Claim Your Clarity | How to Find Out What You Want   
In the video, I share the process I use to help my clients get clear about what they want so they can invest their energy and time in achieving the personal radical success they desire.
Now that I know what living with purpose feels like, I would like to help people who continue living this way so they can live more mindfully. This is important because the way that you engage in life and the enthusiasm you feel each day is directly correlated to how you invest your moments and thoughts. If we don’t seek more clarity and find a purpose for our days, we could end up living a life where we did everything, we were told to do but never achieve the riches we hoped for.
After you watch the video, I’d love to know how you discover what you really want.  Finding clarity in life and the reason beyond the goals that you set for yourself give you the ability to be more intentional with your time and how you live.
I am here to be of service and would love to help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be and we can do that right here – every other week, and via my blog and you also have access to my book, Be a Spiritual Girl in a Material World | Achieve Radical Personal Success Without Sacrificing Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness. It’s a book I wrote to help high achieving women live a more balanced and fulfilling life. So, please reach out.  Know you’re not on your own.
I’d love for you to share any ah-has, comments, questions, and thoughts with me about what I share here and in my book by emailing me at Carmen[at]WellbeingMessenger[dot]com.   I am here for you and I personally respond to all of my emails and comments.

Grow a Successful Travel Business on Social Media

Want to grow your travel business on social media?
Social media marketing can feel like a huge time suck, if you have no strategy to grow your reach.
While marketing on social media is all the rage, you need a strategy to reach your Ideal Travel Clients. Please know a Facebook Post does not a marketing strategy make. It is simply the first step.
The highest and best use of social media marketing for travel agents is to grow their email marketing list. This is why I tell my Travel Agent Clients to set up a lead funnel and drive their social media fans to their opt-in landing pages.
The Secret to Growing Your Travel Business on Social Media
As a travel agent I worked hard to get clients and networking didn’t work for me. Naturally I turned to social media.  It was the easiest way to share that my travel business was open for business, but no one responded.
I posted every day, had lots of fans, and comments, but the business just wasn’t coming in.
It made me feel like all of my energy, money, and time marketing my travel business on social media was a complete waste.
Then while working on a group trip for an author, I stumbled onto a way to use social media to drive the Ideal Travel Clients for that trip to a series of blogs I created, which offered a lead magnet.
When people signed up to receive my lead magnet, I delivered a series of emails that led the new subscribers down my Ideal Travel Client Journey.  My Ideal Client Journey was a plan I laid out that helped me lay out how I would want someone, given the perfect conditions, to sign up for the retreat.
Those who asked for information were retargeted in a series of ads on Facebook. This was before they purchased Instagram. And this is how I sold out 17 retreats with a combined total of just over 900 attendees in just over 2 years.
I started leading my own retreats and I stopped selling retreats for others a few years ago. I also started showing my clients and fellow travel agents how to use my dynamic marketing system to fill their groups and grow their travel business.
Watch the training video to learn the best and highest use of social media marketing for travel agents.
Watch Now | Successfully Grow Your Travel Business on Social Media
In the video I share how to grow a truly successful travel business, one that will stand the test of time and help you achieve all of the things you hope. It’s important you grow your email marketing list. This is critical when marketing your business online because it allows you to consistently put your brand message in front of people who have a genuine interest in your travel services.
Today social media marketing is relatively inexpensive and the most effective way of increasing your reach and opportunity.
But don’t be fooled by that because no one is on social media to buy travel. Social media users do want and love information, insights, and inspiration about traveling. Change up your strategy to give them what they want if you want to get those valuable likes and visits to specific pages on your website to pique their interest and get them to share their name and email address with you.
This is powerful because once you capture a visitor, by receiving their name and email address, you create the opportunity to guide the conversation to the value of your travel services.

How to Convert Website Visitors into Travel Clients

Do your website visitors become your travel clients?
If not – I’d like to help, because this is one of the best ways to grow your travel business.  If you have a travel website that converts your visitors into clients, it makes getting leads easier.
How to Convert Website Visitors into Travel Clients
When it comes to travel websites most focus on the bells and whistles they would like.  How fast the slide show moves.  Where the navigation bar sits. How the website pages are laid out…
But when it comes to creating a website that converts your website visitors into travel clients, you must:
Get the attention of your Ideal Travel Client.
Collect visitors’ email address’.
And create an opportunity to convert your new subscriber into a travel client.
Sounds simple right?  And it is once you know what goes into it.
There’s are some important things to do in each step that makes this strategy highly successful, and once you know how to do them it’s as easy as:
Captivating
Capturing
Converting
To learn how we do that to get more clients and make more money at Travel Business Success Circle watch this week’s #TBSC Power Training Session by clicking on the video
Create a Magnetizing Website
Captivate. What you say and how you say it matters. To captivate your Ideal Clients, you must use the right words to pique their interest in you, your brand, and your business.
If I were to visit your website would I know:
What you do?
How you do it?
Who you work with?
Capture. Your website must be able to capture the names and email addresses of those who visit your website.
You can do this by signing up for an auto-responder system that will collect the names and email addresses with those who enter them and click a button.  A few auto-responder services I’ve used for helping with this part of my business are Aweber, Drip, and Kartra. Look for a service that provides you with all your digital platform needs.
If I were to visit your website would I be:
Invited to connect further?
Offered high-quality content?
Clearly make an offer for something of value, in exchange for my name and email address? 
Convert. This happens after the “capture.” This is where you build the know, like, and trust to get more clients.  This is where you help your new subscriber take the next step towards becoming a new client.  What is the next logical path for them?  You define it.
If I were a subscriber, would I learn:
How to connect with you further about your services?
What I may expect when I work with you?
What other people think of your services?
This is how you build the know, like, and trust to convert website visitors into travel clients.
The Fix
What can I do to be more captivating?
How can I capture more visitors?
How can I better convert my subscribers?
Use the questions I share here to look at your website the way a visitor does and let your answers guide your next set of website updates.
Creating a magnetizing website helps you get more clients, make more money, and create a travel business your life loves.
As always, share your ah-has, comments, questions, and thoughts by sending an email to me at Carmen[at]WellbeingMessenger[dot]com. I am here for you and I personally respond to all of my emails and comments.

Inspiration and Motivation | 3 Ways To Get Inspired

Inspiration and Motivation
Imagine with me for a moment…
You have a big dream, and you’ve come to a point in your life where it is time to focus on you and what you want. Life is finally set up for you to go for it.  So, you do. You put your big dream front and center. 
Now, to accomplish your big goal, you take focused action on your success tasks, one step at a time you are getting closer to making it happen. Excited by your goal, you work tirelessly.  Knocking tasks off your list two at a time at what feels like lightening speed. 
However, within a couple of weeks, a few objections, and working through what seemed like insurmountable barriers, you run out of steam.
At a dead stop, completely depleted, you decide to shelf your dream. After weeks or months of effort invested, the dream still haven’t happened. It’s just not the right time. Perhaps it will never be. Your dream will have to wait to see the light of day, again. 
Now I ask you, were you inspired or motivated as you first worked through your goal?
The answer to this question makes all the difference in what the journey to accomplish your goal feels like.  It can feel difficult or it can feel delightful.  It’s all in the approach.
Inspiration
Inspiration comes from a feeling deep inside when you are called to do something. The word inspiration means to be in spirit.  Inspiration seems to carry you through the process of achieving the goal, and personal success, you desire.
Motivation
While, motivation comes from a feeling you should do something. Motivation requires much more will, and hence energy, as you manage your to do list as exhaustion and worry inevitably take over.
Both inspiration and motivation can be your allies in creating a life worth living, as you define it.
What’s The Difference
Inspiration comes from a feeling deep inside when you are called to do something. The word inspiration means to be in spirit.  Inspiration seems to carry you through the process of achieving the goal, or the personal success you desire. When you’re inspired, you will feel perfectly aligned and natural as you take action towards achieving your dreams.
Motivation comes from a feeling you should do something. It requires much more will as you manage your to do list as exhaustion and worry inevitably take over. When you are motivated you feel your challenges are limitless and like you will never overcome them.
Both inspiration and motivation are your allies in creating a life worth living, whatever that means for you.
If you’d like to learn how to use inspiration and motivation to help you achieve more of the personal radical success you desire, watch the Thrive Vibe now.
Inspiration and Motivation | 3 Ways to Get Inspired
Know that things can be good and easy.
Every time I turn around someone else is telling me that everything has gone to the crapper, but it’s okay because “that’s the way it is, and they are fine.”
I get it, I do. But, why do we accept this? Why do we accept that “this is the way it is?”
Know things are not the way they are, they are the way you perceive them to be.
Take my current situation.  When on went on vacation on July 23rd all was good in my world.  But on July 24th, while in Chicago seeing my family, I noticed my father’s now known to be cancerous tumor.  Since that time, I have been back and forth to and from Chicago to and from Florida, Tennessee, and New York.
To say this is a challenging time is an understatement.  But I have a choice.  I can look at this through eyes of fear, focused with the fact that I haven’t been home for almost 2 months.  Or I can look at this through eyes of love, focused on my purpose to help my father and mother.
While both are my reality, I can choose what I focus on. I choose what makes me feel confident and full as I invest everything, I have in helping my mother and father heal from this medical crisis with grace.
You see, everything is about perception and the good thing about that is that you can choose how you want to perceive things.
Love and fear both exist. You get to choose your perception.
I choose love because love makes me feel like this is all worthwhile.
I choose to hold on to the good.
I choose to focus on the ease.
Does that mean everything is good?  No.
Does that mean that things are always easy? No.
Does that mean I choose to focus on the good and ease? Yes, absolutely.
Why? Because that’s all that matters – how you feel.
Watch the video and learn how to tap into what moves you forward with more ease, and 3 ways to get inspired on demand so you can accomplish more with grace.
Then I’d love to hear from you.
How do you pull through? Inspiration, motivation – there is no wrong answer.
I am here to be of service and would love to help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be and we can do that right here – every other week, and via my blog and you also have access to my book, Be a Spiritual Girl in a Material World | Achieve Radical Personal Success Without Sacrificing Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness. It’s a book I wrote to help high achieving women in business live a more balanced and fulfilling life.
