Rainey WikstromLearn how Rainey Wikstrom left a job that made her sick and followed her passions to help kids and people be healthy while creating her own career speaking, coaching and consulting.

Rainey went from a job that was making her sick to a career she controls and that aligns with her purpose and passion. She gets paid to speak, consults and coaches.
A great quote from Rainey “I never want to be in the position where my values and what I cared about didn’t line up with my income stream.”

She connected with a life coach and wrote a mission statement for her life. Learn how she created her career that aligns with her passion and purpose
Hint she asked “What does I want to do?” instead of “What can I do?”.
She mentions how movement helps her feel so good. This reminds me of the book ‘The Miracle Morning’ which says to include movement every morning.

She followed her passion by taking action to help her kids school be healthier which lead to more and more opportunities for her dream career.

She talks about much more including knowing when to say no.

Finding business and life motivation with Jack Canfield The Success Principals

I am pumped about everything I’ve been learning.  I’m currently reading Jack Canfield’s book “The Success Principals”

Some productivity techniques from Jack:

  • Write down five goals or five tasks for each and everyday.
  • Get Accountability Partner who you review your goals and tasks.

Also write down your life goals.  Add to the list as you think of more.  Share what you love and what your find inspiring.

If you are on Instagram follow us @YourBusinesssPodcast for daily inspiration and tips.   If you are interested in farming and homesteading follow us @RegenFarms.

Recently I signed up with Michael O’neal’s “Solo Hour’ which is an online mastermind group.  In a group like this you get help with your business questions and you get to network with other people who are also looking to be successful in business.

I also discuss online business ideas like selling an eBook and creating other forms of digital media.  Remember you may not consider yourself an expert but if you know more about a topic than other people then you can teach them.

And I discuss using Instagram for your business, passion or hobby.  I’m using an app on my iPhone named ‘Word SWAG’ to add text to my photos and to get backgrounds for sayings.

I also talk about working on discipline for my business and passions.

Jack also suggested adding a new habit to an existing habit to increase your success.  Example every time you brush your teeth do some push-ups.

Have a great day and make your list to get more done!

A great new book to read and apply ‘The Success Principles’

A week or so ago I ordered Jack Canfield’s 10th anniversary edition of ‘The Success Principals’. I heard an interview with him on ‘’ and I was sold. The episode is found here Jack Canfield. Jack is the coauthor of the ‘Chicken Soup’ series of books and has been very successful. If you order the 10th anniversary version you get some bonus content including a video and audio of Jack answering questions. Also the first two chapters of the book as a download. See Let me know if you get it, have it and how the principles are working for you.

In this podcast I share my excitement over Jack’s new book and my thoughts on hanging out with people you want to be like, they are people you can learn from.

Are you a geek and if so are you following your geekiness? Find Passion and Motivation.

This podcast explores the following along with examples.
Are you a geek when it comes to certain things? If so I hope it aligns with your profession and job. If not then hopefully you can change that. Recently I realized I’d consider myself a geek when it comes to farming, specifically regenerative permaculture farming. This aligns well with the farm I’m establishing

Are you a geek about things that are negative or things that don’t help you at all? If so time to change where you spend your time and energy.

If fear motivates you it probably will not keep motivating you. You will need to find something positive to maintain momentum.

Follow your Passion to create a Business

Can you turn your passion into a business? Whether it is gardening, photography or playing video games can you find a way to make money having fun? As the book “The Power” and the movie “The Secret” mentions your passions are clues to what you could be doing for a business that you would enjoy.

Start asking your self how can you make money with your passions?

I talk about how the idea of having a farm has grown into a place where we will teach others, have others live and learn on a productive farm. Once the first farm is proven we will know that we can start more farms to help show and demonstrate to more people.

If you already have a business are you working on the parts you really enjoy? If not maybe you need to hire someone to handle the tasks you don’t enjoy.

Make sure you share your passions and thoughts for business with others.

And as always take some action!
