The Secret to Taking on More Responsibility

Taking care of an aging parent while running a business?

Do you find that time gets eaten away from your work?

Today I’m going to share with you the secret to managing taking on more responsibility so that you can focus and move the needle forward.


One of the ways to manage taking on more responsibility is to call in the 3 D’s – Dump it, Delegate it, Do it.

Watch while I break this formula down for you – in less than 5 minutes⬇️

First, I invite you to get centered. Feet on the floor. 3 deep breaths in and 3 deep breaths out. Light a candle. Pour a glass of wine. Grab a notebook and a pen that you love to write with.

Then brain-dump everything that you are doing – for yourself, your work, your aging parent, etc.

Once you have your list, go line by line and ask yourself – Can I dump this? (What are the consequences if I do not do this – if there are no consequences, dump it!) Can I delegate this? (Virtual assistant, bookkeeper, kids, partner/spouse, lawn care guy, house cleaner) and finally – Can I do this in 5 minutes or less? Then do it.

Let’s continue the conversation this Friday, April 28th at 2 cst/12 pst during the monthly gathering, Taking Care of Aging Parents WHILE Running a Business.

Taking care of an aging parent while running a business is not easy (understatement of the year!) And you are running at double time, working so hard to do all of the things. I invite you to slow down so that you can take care of yourself, your business and your health.

The #1 Skill that Earners Have In Common and How YOU Can Have It

Focus is the #1 skilll that all earners have.

How do I do it?  I’m going to share with you a method that I recently discovered that works for me.  But first, let’s talk about why it’s important.

Barbara Stanny (Huson), author of Overcoming Underearning, says that focus is the #1 thing that all earners have in common.   

You know it’s no joke to be unfocused – especially when you’ve added the layer of taking care of an aging parent, to your life.

What I have found is that when I’m focused, and when my clients are able to focus, the background worries drop away and that’s when the money rolls in.   Money is the outward sign that I am helping people.  The more money I make, the more people I help.  That’s what happened to my client Sally Jo – she raised her fee when she got focused and is now earning more than she had before.  

Here’s how I stay focused:

These boards help me to break down my tasks into categories which help me to focus on them.  For example, Monday for me is Social Media Monday and on that day of the week, I’m focusing on my social media column.
