Well, it is finally here! My team and I have been deep in preparation mode behind the scenes in order to get this ready to launch. So without further ado…


You are invited to attend the inaugural Purpose, Passion, Productivity Retreat for Women Entrepreneurs & Leaders! This amazing retreat will take place in beautiful California Wine Country from November 6-9, 2014. It starts Thursday afternoon with a meet and greet wine reception and ends Sunday afternoon. We will be staying at the Geyserville Inn, in the heart of Sonoma Valley. See the details here.

Men, please don’t feel left out! This retreat doesn’t apply to you this time, but I bet you know some amazing women who may be interested. Please feel free to forward this email to them.

I love live events because there is so much power in them. They allow you to get out of your day-to-day routine, meet other high-caliber women entrepreneurs and leaders who are working on the same level as you (and make amazing connections with them!), so you can return home with new ideas and a refreshed feeling of excitement for your business/career and life.

Lisa-drinking_wineSay yes to this event, and to yourself, and come join me in this inspiring and beautiful fall-foliage setting. It will be an intimate, nurturing, meaningful, interactive experience that helps you to identify and clear your blocks, define a specific plan for playing a bigger game personally and professionally, and gain the confidence to believe that you can.

We have an amazing retreat planned for you with focused retreat time, nourishing meals, really cool excursions to get out and experience the area, and some fun extra opportunities for rejuvenation, pampering and relaxation. I am so excited about this!! I will be busy the next few months planning a one-of-a-kind experience for you.

I have priced the retreat at an affordable level for all that’s included — only $999 early bird rate! Once you see the details of this event, you will see what a great value that is. And I will over-deliver, as many of you know I always do.

But here’s what YOU need to do… act fast!

I know that this will entail time away from your home/family/business (although for some of you, that’s a big part of the beauty of the retreat!), and an investment of funds.

So my gift to you is a Fast Action Bonus that allows you to pay in 3 easy installments (30 days apart) with no extra charge if you register by August 15th! So all you need to do is put down your first deposit of $333 by August 15th, and you are in! My shopping cart will take care of the rest by charging your card 2 more payments of $333 at 30 days and 60 days. That’s it. Easy and quite do-able for almost any budget. (And if you own a business, you can probably write it off as a tax deduction!)

vineyard-fallSpace is limited so don’t delay if this is calling you! The retreat is for a small group of women only, and the Inn rooms will book up fast. (Details on reserving your room are available here.)

Visit the Retreat Page for all of the details, including Retreat Features, Itinerary, Logistics, and Transportation.

It has been my dream for many years to gather women like you in a phenomenal setting like this so that I can help you unwind, reconnect, step into your power and transform your life and business/career in meaningful ways. Now that dream is coming true… for me, and if you join me in November, for you too!

Earlier this year, I had the absolute pleasure of speaking at The Big Event in Sacramento hosted by Brian Sharp. What a fabulous experience! 400 people attended, and each speaker gave a 25 minute TED-style talk telling our story of how we became an entrepreneur. Think business meets motivation!

My topic was “Create Your Purpose, Live Your Passion.” In this video, I share my story… the behind-the-scenes (and from the beginning) of how I went from an aspiring Broadway performer to practicing lawyer to successful entrepreneur. People often tell me how cool or strange it is to them that I “effortlessly” just made this shift from performer to lawyer to owner of a coaching/consulting/speaking company. “Effortless” is not a word I would use to describe my journey. Rewarding, yes. Makes a lot of sense looking through the rear-view mirror? Absolutely. But not effortless. This video reveals how it happened… the good, the bad, the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up, and the ugly (can you say FEAR)?

It is my desire that this video will both deeply move you and inspire you to take action to propel your own dreams forward. Wherever you came from and whatever has happened in your life, you have the power to rewrite your story starting today — if you want to, of course. You may be exactly where you want to be. If so, enjoy it, my friend.

What’s YOUR story? How did you get to this point? Do you plan to change it? I would love to hear from you!

I’m very excited to share my interview with you as I was a guest expert for Smead’s “Keeping You Organized” series.

Check out my podcast and video, “Principles of Productivity” for powerful organizing and productivity tips that will shift your thinking and behavior. I talk about the relationship between physical and mental organization.

Take a quick 20 minutes to watch or listen to this relaxed, lively discussion filled with cool, helpful topics on not only organizing, but common hurdles when starting or running a business.

I love partnering with Smead and enjoyed the discussion about Smead products with John (my interviewer).

Hello NAPO peeps,

If you are attending the national NAPO Conference in May 2014 in Phoenix, consider coming a day early and attending my pre-conference session: “Strategic Business Expansion: Smart Options to Grow Your Business” on Wednesday, May 28th from 1-5 before the Expo kicks off.

Here is a sneak peek video… Would love to see you there!

Below is a description of what I will be covering…

“Strategic Business Expansion: Smart Business Growth!”
Many organizers run businesses that are a one-trick pony, trading hours for dollars, and working really hard without a major income to show for it. For organizers ready to expand offerings, help many people at the same time, and leverage their content, there is a better way! This pre-conference session will help you strategically expand your business and think bigger.

  • This interactive workshop will cover topics such as using independent contractors or hiring employees, expanding to another state, offering virtual services and digital content, licensing portions of your business, and joint venturing with other businesses.
  • Learn how to expand, pitfalls to watch out for, and steps to take.
  • Walk away with a plan for implementing the options that are the best match for your business!

See the conference details here.

time_to_liveIn honor of Valentine’s Day, my gift to you is that I am extending the early bird rate for the La Dolce Vita 6-Week Group Life Coaching Program… until the day the program starts! Yes, that’s right. The price will stay at $299 for good.

Why, you ask?

Because I want you to be able to take the program if is it “calling” you without worrying about breaking your budget. It is a fabulous program that will deliver excellent value and change your life. But if you can’t afford it at the higher rate, then that means you miss out. And one of the reasons I am offering group programs through LMG University in the first place is to be able to help as many people as possible while keeping the programs affordable. So the price for La Dolce Vita stays at $299.

Now all you need to do is take action to join us!

It’s Deborah, Lisa’s Online Business Manager. Lisa’s enjoying some R&R in the lovely Sonoma Valley, so I thought I’d share some information with you while she’s away. I love how Lisa practices what she preaches!

Don’t miss the chance to set up a chat with Lisa before December 31, 2013 to discuss whether you are a good fit for her upcoming PowerUp Your Business Group Coaching & Mastermind Program starting on January 7, 2014.

If you are interested in scheduling your 1:1 chat with her, please take a moment now to complete the application for PowerUp – click here. Once we receive your application, we will be in touch to set up your call so you and Lisa can determine if you are a good fit for the program.

faqsWe are getting some questions about the program, so here are some handy Q&A to give you more details about PowerUp.

How will this group coaching & mastermind group be structured?
Lisa builds coaching and mastermind groups that consist of a small number of business owners (this group is being limited to a maximum of 15 members) who work together to create an environment of support, guidance and direction. During the calls, each member will have the opportunity to set specific action items, share celebrations and challenges, and seek feedback as they work to accomplish their goals.

Who is this program being offered to?

You are a good match for PowerUp if:

  • You are an expanding business owner who has been running your current enterprise for at least 3-5 years.
  • You have an established core foundation for your business and are looking to expand, streamline, or up-level your business.
  • You need guidance on growth strategies, building a team and systems, and leveraging income opportunities.
  • You want to accelerate cash flow and maximize profits via multiple streams of income and/or more focused offerings.
  • You want to elevate your personal platform while expanding the impact of your personal and business mission.
  • It is recommended that you already have a website and a way to capture and communicate with prospects and clients, or be willing to get these up and running immediately upon starting the program.

What can I expect to achieve as a result of participating in the PowerUp mastermind program?
Business owners who have participated in Lisa’s past group coaching and mastermind programs have published books, launched their businesses, secured television appearances, hired employees and independent contractors, created their first teleclass or webinar, and much much more.

The marketplace seems to be flooded with business coaches. What makes Lisa different?
Lisa’s approach to coaching is unique in that she uses a hybrid coaching-consulting model. Before launching her business, Lisa was a lawyer, educator, and mediator. Drawing from her 11 years as a successful entrepreneur, she is able to effectively guide you through the barriers, and walk through the fears, that are holding you back from achieving your goals. But she also gives you the hard cold facts and answers questions when you need answers!

PowerUpWhat is the meeting schedule?
This group will meet over a series of six months on the first and third Tuesday of every month starting on Tuesday, January 7th and ending Tuesday, June 17th. Please visit the program page for a list of all dates.

Does Lisa have plans to hold additional mastermind groups in the near future?
Yes, Lisa will most likely offer a second round of PowerUp in Fall 2014. But that is awhile away, and not written in stone. If you have been contemplating working with Lisa in a mastermind format, now is the time!

What will the size of the group be?
This group will be limited to a total of 15 business owners.

What are the application requirements?
Acceptance into the program is contingent upon completion of the application.

What is the fee?
T he price to participate is an affordable $1,995 by the early bird deadline of December 12th and then goes up to $2,295 thereafter. A 3-pay option is available if you choose to spread the payments out.

How do I apply?

I look forward to welcoming you to the group!

Deborah Davis
Online Business Manager
