Do you lack motivation? Do you need an extra kick? What works for you for motivation? What gets your juices flowing?

For me, one of the most motivating things is success. When I get a little bit of it, I want more. It can be as simple as booking a wine tasting or signing on a recruit. As soon as I get the commitment, I automatically think, ok who can I get to host next? Who do I need to follow up with on consulting? It feels so good to make the calls or send out the emails and actually get a positive response.

I was on a phone call recently where the person recommended setting a goal that you KNOW you can achieve each night before you go to bed. Following up with a host, making 3 phone calls to potential clients, doing the dishes, going to the gym, etc. Doesn't matter what it is as long as you say I am going to do this and DO it. It starts off your day right...and I think this goes along with the idea of success makes you want more.

I am also pregnant right now, so I am very motivated to get as many tastings done before Thanksgiving as I can. I want to have 10 scheduled and would like 4 more. I know I can get it done, I just need to fill those November weekends!

I'm pretty self motivated. I like to be busy. I'm very much a morning person. I get more done in the mornings than any other time of day.

I try to stay focused on what needs to be done as well as getting my goals accomplished.
