Happy June to you! Can you believe we are already at the half way point in the year?
With lots of things completed and lots more to accomplish, I have to admit I am excited and a little nervous about getting everything done this quarter I planned to complete. Thankfully I have a wonderful coach and mastermind group that support me in achieving everything that I want, in the timeframe I set my mind to.
In this issue I share Insights from May - Mastering Your Mindset, feature a book that is about mastering your money mind-set AND showcase a Massage Therapist that has provided excellent service.
Additionally, I share upcoming events and changes to my website that bring additional resources and opportunities to my clients and all who are in the Kim Miles coaching community.

|Insights from May 2012 - Mastering Your Mindset
The month of May was quite interesting for me and my clients. I personally experienced a flux in my cash-flow that was a bit unnerving. It ultimately required my coach, Melanie Benson Strick, to really push and stretch me. Thankfully, she did a fabulous job!
As many coaches experience, what shows up in our own businesses shows up in our client's as well. I truly believe it is God's way of teaching coaches to relate to and thereby coach clients much more effectively.
As I pondered why this issues had come up now, and what I could do for my clients to support them into success, I realized the feeling that was most prominent was that of "not enough". I felt a real sense of less than and questioned if my skills and experiences were enough to pull me through this rough spot.
Now, I have been in business for 5 years and have certainly experienced the ebb and flow of business, cash, and clients. I have developed tools and programs specifically from those experiences to support my clients so they could move through that part of the learning curve much more rapidly. I have even, at times, felt that I had a good grip on the challenges of being a business owner.
I was reminded that the negative mindset that can dramatically impact our self discipline from time to time is that very feeling of "not enough". It can be flat out debilitating if you let it. It is a mindset that must be overcome, not just by positive affirmations or wishing the feeling would go away, and not just by implementing a "just do it" approach. The fastest way to overcome this mindset is by actual proof that you are indeed enough and that you are an arsenal of experiences, accomplishments, skills and learnings that warrant you being proud of you.
Several months ago I created a tool, The Accomplishments Timeline, that allows you to see for yourself all of your accomplishments in one place so you can prove to yourself that you are indeed enough.
My clients and I found that having this information in one place, not only allows us to acknowledge our accomplishments, but also use it as a tool box that holds all of the the tools, skills and experiences that are most helpful in overcoming our challenges today.
Here is how to create an Accomplishments Timeline:
- Take out a large piece of paper and draw a time line of 10 or more years. (Leave plenty of room between each year tick mark)
- Include both personal and professional data on the timeline.
- List degrees, certifications, trainings received.
- List major events that have occurred in the timeframe of your timeline (new jobs, moves, marriages, divorces, new baby etc)
- List skills acquired and lessons learned for each of the events.
- For each year list specifically how you have growth and "ah-ha's" that you have experienced.
With this Accomplishments Timeline complete, you can now see all of the tools you have at your disposal to support you with all situations you're experiencing now or will experience in the future.
Keep adding to the time line because every experience is one of great value, even if you don't see it until later.

Parker Massage and Wellness - Jake Freedle CMT
I recently experienced an amazing massage by fellow networking colleague, Jake Freedle and must say, it was an amazing experience.
Jake utilized his reflexology skills and worked on my feet in a way that brought me to complete relaxation.
Jake worked out the tightness in my upper back, where I am ALWAYS knotted up, such that I felt more comfortable and ready to take on the rest of the day and week, revitalized and energized.
Finally, Jake provides a professional and customer service experience from the time of scheduling to completion of the massage.
If you haven't experienced a massage by Jake Freedle, you really need to get in and see him soon.
Parker Massage and Wellness is at 10841 S. Crossroads Dr. Suite 9
Parker, CO 80134
and Jake can be reached at 303-841-7121.
Overcoming Under Earning
by Barbara Stanny
As a business coach and life long learner I am constantly reading personal and professional development books. Many I find on my own and many are recommended by colleagues.
One of the "issues" I have experienced in my own business as well as what many clients are experiencing is that of cash-flow or finance management aka money mindset.
My coach recently sent me the book Overcoming Under Earning by Barbara Stanny and since I have read it, have incorporated it into my own practice as recommend reading.
This book not only gives you the tools to develop a great money mindset, if provides the coaching questions and exercises to dig deep to the root of the money issues.
Whether you are experiencing cash-flow issues, overspending, not changing enough or not making enough, this book is a true life saver when it comes to developing a healthy money mind-set.
Overcoming Under Earning can be purchased at www.amazon.com .or your local book seller.
