We've all know the importance of setting goals. But, did you know, our goals can actually set us up to fail?

Don't get me wrong - having goals are important  - but they are not enough. Just knowing what to do doesn't mean that we'll actually do it. Watch this video on the problems with goals.

Train your Brain for Business Program

        Motivation + Focus + Achievement = Success

As a Solopreneur, do you struggle with too much to do and not enough time to do it? Do you feel you are putting out more energy and effort into your business without receiving the payoff that you'd hoped for? Do you find yourself saying:

    I can't get it all done.

    I need help, but I can't afford it.

    I put in so much hard work for little payoff.

    I know what to do, but I put off or avoid important tasks.

    I haven't taken a vacation in a while, and I find it hard to relax.

    business motivationI'm running out of motivation for my business.

If you are struggling with your business, spinning your wheels and feeling frustrated with the marketing and sales aspects of business, you are not alone.

If you are a business owner struggling with procrastination, lack of business motivation, or even self sabotage - you'll find the answers you are looking for here.

Success comes one step at a time and by following through on your goals. But, as you've seen from the video (upper left), our goals can leave us feeling unsatisfied with even less motivation than when we began. Whether we actually follow through on our goals or not has to do with our motivation and focus. If we want to achieve more, we need to find our business motivation and work smarter, not harder!

The people who achieve more are not any smarter, more talented, special or any luckier than the rest of us. But, they do have something different - they have positive mental strategies, a mindset or attitude that is essential to business motivation and achievement.

Holly Stokes, the Brain Trainer

Over the years, working in the field of applied psychology, I began using these tools on myself and in my own business and motivation.

I've used these key principles to be more productive with my time, including authoring 2 books, creation of 10+ Hypnosis style CDs, keeping a busy practice, radio shows, youtube videos, hosting local events and workshops, managing an internship program and more. Plus, using these tools and principles, I've been able to continually grow my business and increase my profits year after year despite the lagging economy.

Are you ready for more from your business? Are you ready to:

      business training nlpBuild Momentum and Grow your Business

The real secret to getting more done, marketing effectively, and growing your business really starts in your head. But there are some things you need to know first. There is important information missing from the business books. What is needed is a deeper understanding of people and the psychology behind business. Psychology is simply the study of what we think, feel and do.

Firstly, you need to know more about you. You need to know what makes you tick, your sources of motivation, and how to tap into your inner fire of enthusiasm. You need to understand your priorities so you can manage your energy and your time.

Secondly, to be more effective in your marketing, you need to understand people on a deeper level. You need to know how people think and what motivates them to make a purchase. If you are in business, it is your job to motivate people to buy something from you. If you are not generating sales, you won't be in business long.


If you are like most service based business professionals, you love what you do and you are really good at it. Your business is a vehicle that lets you bring your passion to the world and share your gifts and talents with others. But unless you can effectively bring your business to market, you won't be in business long.

When I first started my business, I was largely unprepared for what I needed to know to be effective in my business and marketing. But, bit by bit, drawing on the skill sets of Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP, the field of applied psychology, and cultivating a deep understanding of people, I began to piece the steps together. After 6 years experience in running my own business, I've brought the essential tools for success together in a program designed to give you the mental edge on your business.

Drawing on the advanced training in the tools of applied psychology, Neuro-Linguistics Programming and my own experience, I've distilled key principles and practical strategies that you can start applying in your business today for more motivation and greater focus.  When you have the right mindset and the right focus, you will be more effective, and accomplish more.

These are the tools to shift your mindset, take charge of your business motivation, hone your focus, and thus get more clients.

I've designed this course to help you shorten the learning curve in business and find your motivation, and give you the understanding you need to build your business so that it can provide you the lifestyle and financial income you want.
