It is already April and that time of the year when successful entrepreneurs Spring Clean their dreams. That's exactly what I've been doing, and I want to show you three keys that can help you do the same, so that you can inspire your way to more sales.
I spent last week in Florida, sharing my message with over 125 business owners at a major international conference. Many of the people I connected with are coming to Donegal for the third Gnó Le Croi business retreat in August here in Gweedore!
Wow it felt so good to just let go up on that stage, to speak from my heart and make an impact with my story of leaving my job in London - 5 years ago this April. And how, in the last 18 months, I’ve built a consistent 25k monthly revenue, when I got clear on what lit me up and filled me with inspiration. It dawned on me at the Gnó Le Croí retreat / Business with Heart that I can help make people’s dreams come true. What an honour. That weekend was a game changer for me. On Thursday 2nd March, 29 of the most heart-led, committed and honest entrepreneurs I have ever met (and have the pleasure of working with), made their way to West Donegal (Coolest place on the planet according to Nat Geo) to join me for three days of intensive business building - three days!!. They came from all over, from London to Galway, Belfast to Dublin. They arrived with open minds and a willingness to get down to work. And we worked! And we made magic happen. I’m already taking bookings for my next retreat - see here for info. On my ‘success panel’ at the event - I invited three of the amazing women business owners I work with to speak. Pictured above right. They sat on the panel and told the room how they have doubled their income - Boom!
This is what it’s all about for me, to see their success bring such pride and joy was really powerful. I am so proud of my clients and I’m 100% invested in helping them double their income again!
So how do you double your income and make your dreams come true? I won’t share just one way, I will share three!
1. Get uncomfortable - the fact is that if you are not profitable, then you are comfortable. You’re taking the easy route and settling for mediocre. You’re not making it happen, you’re not making the calls and you’re getting in front of the people who need your help in an authentic way. You are too busy trying to look good and play small, i.e, comfortable.
Think about it. All that lies between you and your dreams is getting uncomfortable! Wow! Imagine that? Remember, I’m enjoying this success in my business from speaking my truth, dealing with my demons, getting uncomfortable, putting myself out there, speaking in front of hundreds of people and showing them how they too, can live their business dream and take risks. And believe me, this doesn't happen by being comfortable.
2. Dream bigger - If your dream is to just have enough to pay the bills, manage a few clients, have some money or nearly no money in the bank, well, then that’s all you will ever get. Is that really all you want?
Imagine just being able to afford anything you want, and not worrying “will there be enough money in the account to cover this”?
Is this your dream? Is that all you want? Surely not, right?
If you could have anything you want - anything? If you were brave enough to write down every single thing you want to have, to achieve and to experience, how long would that list be?
Because, honestly? If you don’t have that list, or if you have a sad, small, tight little list then I hate to tell you, but you are closing off so much opportunity for yourself. You will never have any more than what you allow yourself to dream of - it is simply impossible.
3. Ask. Ask. Ask. The problem I see is that you don’t ask for enough. If you don’t ask, you don’t get, no matter what it is, in life and in business. You have to ask for what you want, for as much as you want and stop imagining(or foolishly hoping against hope) that it will suddenly, magically, fall into place, the heavens will open and luck will pour on you. Thats B.S.
Ask for what you want.
I asked that I would have a business that first would help my community, then I asked that I had a business helped people make their dreams come true while making my dreams come true and guess what - I have that business now! It just crossed the 60k mark for this year alone. 60k in the first quarter of this year, after just 18 months.
And then I get a message like this:
“I had such a strong gut feeling that working with you was going to turn my business around and I am so glad I trusted that feeling because in just 8 weeks I’ve made €3000! I keep looking at my business bank account - because I can't believe there is actually money in it and I am paying myself a wage. I know I’m only on the cusp of what the possibilities are, with your help. It is exciting, scary and exhilarating! And what you’ve done with my message - I’ve never been able to sum up what I do in a way that people get! I am just thrilled at the thought of more ‘Health and Harmony’ babies on the planet, and mine and YOUR part in that journey” - Denise Health & Harmony, March 2017.
Imagine that? This brave woman trusted her gut, and made it work.
Realise and believe that it is ALL POSSIBLE and YOU are the POSSIBILITY! Every bone in your body, every breath you take, and every dream you create. You are the one who makes it all possible.
I know now, that making money is the easy part. Making meaning is the part we struggle with. So when you can have both of those pieces working for you, that’s inspiring. That’s when you can really make a difference in the world, make money faster and love what you do.
Sound good? Of course it sounds good! This is why we get into business in the first place.

Who is Moira anyway and why should you care?
Moira helps small business owners and entrepreneurs - inspire their way to more clients, customers and profits without being salesy. So they can have the increased profits they yearn for, that fuels a life they love ... doing what they love -- even if they hate sales! She does this by way of business coaching and running one of a kind business retreats in one of the most magical places in Ireland.
I walked out on my 9-5 job in London 4 years ago, because I felt my soul was dying. I moved back home to Donegal - a picturesque area in a tiny corner of Ireland. That despite it’s beauty was unappreciated, with businesses closing left and right. I was determined to do what I could to bring it back to life. So I began to work with business owners in the area, to use their talents, resources and abilities to not only turn Donegal around, but turn their businesses around. And because I helped those business owners to see a bigger vision for themselves, my own business took off! And in spite of having never owned a business before, I've built a consistent 10K monthly revenue stream lightning fast.
I now help small business owners and entrepreneurs who hate sales - inspire their way to more clients, customers and profits without being salesy. So they can have the increased profits they yearn for, that fuels a life they love ... doing what they love! And I love this! My inspired, dynamic, successful brand of business mentoring helps show entrepreneurs a bigger vision for their own businesses, and a powerful, authentic path to inspire their way to more contacts, contracts, clients and cash! I also book one-of-a-kind business retreats to beautiful Donegal, for entrepreneurs to refresh, renew, and rediscover the power of their own business vision.
