Top 5 most impactful books in 2023

This year has been a year of GROWTH and a large contributor to my growth this year has been the books that I have read. In this post I’m sharing the top 5 books that impacted me the most this year.

Every year I select a daily devotional and this year I selected this devotional. I have several devotionals by Joyce Meyer, but this one was so impactful this year because each day includes a scripture verse, a story, a thought of the day, and the opportunity to dig deeper on the topic for that day by offering two additional scripture verses. I especially like this feature because it allows me to go deeper into what God’s word says about the topic for that day. I liked it so much that I will be doing the same devotional again next year for 2024!

I was led to purchase this additional devotional journal this year, so in addition to my daily devotional I also did this devotional journal for 100 days in 2023. What I like most about this devotional is the journaling. Being able to go deeper by journaling my thoughts and getting one word a day to remind me of who I am in Christ really helped to boost and impact my confidence. Each day provides a word, scripture verses to support the word of the day, a key scripture, a place to journal your thoughts and a declaration.

I was introduced to this book in my Pinnacle Forum group. A group that has helped me to grow personally and spiritually. This book is a must read and something that I will definitely read again. It taught me the importance of circling my prayers and the many ways that I can circle my prayers including circling and praying about a scripture/promise of God, physically circling something, and circling my prayers by fasting. This book is powerful and is now in my top list of all spiritual development books that I have in my library.

This book is a supplement to The Circle Maker book. Each day of the challenge offers a scripture verse, an explanation and an impactful quote to help you grow spiritually and specifically in the area of your prayer life. It’s easy to digest as it’s in bit sized daily content. This book was something that we also did as a group in my Pinnacle Forum group and we were able to share praise reports, insights, ah ha’s and more as a group which made it even more impactful.

This was a small, short, but powerful book that shared the power in what we believe. Our belief is one of the greatest abilities God has given us so taking time to read a book about unlocking the power of believing was so impactful this year. As I continue my journey to believe bigger!

Honorable mentions:

This year I published by first collaborative book, so I couldn’t create a list of books that impacted me the most in 2023 without including my very own 90-Day Activate Your Faith Journal

This journal is all about taking the steps to overcome key blessing blockers that stop women of faith in their tracks. Things like procrastination, fear, complaining, doubt, distraction, etc. The journal includes 10 days of going deep on each of the 9 blessing blockers included in the journal and allows you space to journal about how the blessing blocker may be impacting you. Each page has a scripture verse to help you study God’s Word on the topic and each author shares how she overcame or is overcoming this blessing blocker in her life. It also include special gifts from each author. It was definitely impactful for me in leading this book project and I pray and hope it will be impactful for all those who read and consume the journal.

What books have impacted you this year? Be sure to comment below:

8 ways a mastermind group can help you grow your business

I’ve been involved in mastermind groups for over 8 years. Mastermind groups are an amazing way to grow your business. Through masterminds, I have been able to gain new clients, grow my business, and make valuable connections.

So what exactly is a Mastermind? The concept of business masterminds became popular from the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill defined as “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony. No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind].”

I also like the definition provided in this article Mastermind Groups: Everything You Need to Know by Ramsey Solutions, it says, “a Mastermind group consists of a small group of people who want to grow in some capacity at an accelerated rate. Because of this, they commit to getting together regularly—online or in person—to discuss goals, get support and advice for their challenges, and build a network of like-minded professionals who keep them accountable.

In this post I will share 8 ways a mastermind can help to grow your business.

1. Connections

When you are in an intimate mastermind you make lifelong connections and friendships. These connections allow you to grow in life and in business. With these connections it opens you up to the member’s of your masterminds network and connections, which helps you to go further faster

2. Collaborations

Your mastermind peers can be great collaboration partners. I have partnered with and collaborated with several individuals from the various mastermind groups that I have participated in. These collaborations have helped to grow my business

3. Referrals

Referrals can be one of the best ways to grow your business and I have given and received several referrals from members of my mastermind groups.  Although giving referrals is not a requirement for being in mastermind group, it is a natural thing that tends to occur in a mastermind group

4. Focus

Being involved in a mastermind group that also includes content and curriculum really helps you to focus on the key things that you need to do to grow your business

5. Accountability

A mastermind group helps you to stay accountable to the things that you said you will do and the goals that you set for your business

6. Support

A mastermind group can offer you a safe and supportive environment to be vulnerable with what is going on in your life and in your business

7. Resources

Through my mastermind group I have learned about various tools that have helped me to be more effective and efficient in my business

8. Clarity

One of the advantages of a mastermind is being able to come to the group with a specific issue, problem, struggle or challenge and getting a fresh perspective on how to come to a solution

And this is why I have been a member of various mastermind groups and why I lead and facilitate my own mastermind group, The Master’s Mind:  A powerful mastermind for women of faith in business. 

As a member of The Master’s Mind, you will get all of the above and more. In addition, this mastermind focuses on not only your business growth, but your personal and spiritual growth too.

5 Lessons I Learned While on Vacation in Greece

July- Blog Post 1

I believe in the importance of balancing your life.  I know the term “Work Life Balance” is used a lot, but I could never understand how people balance work and life, your work is a part of your life, so I prefer to call it professional life v. personal life balance.

I believe in the importance of working hard, but I also believe in the importance of taking time off from work to enjoy personal time often.

Because of this belief, I routinely take vacations and time off from work (professional life).  I try to take a least one week vacation every quarter, so by the end of the year, I would have taken four weeks (a full month) off.  This to me is sooo important in order for me to refresh, reflect, and recharge so I can be the BEST person I can be.

The 3 C’s of Successful Text Message Marketing

 The 3 C’s of Successful Text Message Marketing
Text Marketing can be a powerful marketing tool when done correctly.  The problem is so few companies are attempting text marketing, and some of the ones who are using text message marketing, are not using it effectively.

In this post, I will cover the 3 C’s of Successful Text Message Marketing, you can check out the video below or read the post:

[Tweet “The 3 C’s of Successful Text Message Marketing. #TextMarketing #SMS #MMS #MarketingEssentials”]

  1.  Convenience
    One of the main reasons why Text Marketing can be so effective is the convenience of this marketing channel, so many people have smart phones now a days, and most people have their phones close by at all times, so this makes text message marketing a convenient and easy way to reach someone.  Some people actually prefer text messages even more so than a phone call, and it’s definitely faster than an email, so this makes text marketing convenient for the marketer and convenient for the person who has opted-in to receive text messages from your company.
  2. Communication
    Communicating via text message can be an easy way to quickly reach your audience.  Giving your clients or prospects the option to be reached via text message is a great opportunity to connect in a way that is most effective for you and for your clients or prospects. 
  3.  Content
    Even though it is convenient to communicate via text message to your clients and prospects, it is important that you are providing relevant and timely content in your text. Some examples of content that works well via text message include coupons, appointment reminders, notifications, etc.  As long as you content is valuable, your audience will want to receive text messages from you. 
  4. Bonus C-  Cost
    Text message marketing can be one of the most affordable and cost effective ways to reach your customers, so if you’re not using text message marketing, you might want to think about adding it to your marketing mix.

Are you using text marketing in your marketing mix?  If so, what do you think makes your text message marketing successful?  Be sure to comment below.
