Frequently Asked Questions About Our Intuitive Strategy Services

A strategist widens the lens, sees trends and formulates patterns. A strategist also acts as a consultant to solve problems, utilize expertise, and give solutions in your outer world. An intuitive strategist works on building your inner life. He or she shows you that by removing hidden obstacles, you can create calm, ignite passion and find joy.
  1. Be honest. You need to be totally honest with yourself and where you stand. If you are in a committed and financially entangled partnership, then you need to be completely honest with each other as well. Seriously, being honest is critical. You cannot improve your finances if you don’t know your standing. It is what it is, so accept it, admit it and move on.
  1. Get organized. You need to get organized. Find, sort, compile and file your bills. Gather your banking, 401K, college fund, and other account information.
  1. Get informed. REALLY look at your bills and your accounts. Get a feel for your expenses and a sense of your savings/investments. Figure out where you stand. Carve some time and space to do this. Take a Saturday morning, pour a delicious cup of coffee or tea, and get to work.
  1. Get savvy. Next, look at your paychecks. What are you doing with your regular paycheck? Do you use direct deposit? Do you siphon off some money to go directly into your savings account as well as your checking? Do you put money toward 401k, HSA, and/or 529 college funds? Do you take advantage of your employee benefits? Maximize your 401K contribution. Enroll in HSA and take advantage of any employer health incentives. What benefits are you not utilizing? Find out about all of your employee benefits. Meet with your human resources department or look at your companies benefit information online.
  2. Take a step in the right direction. Make one good decision. Choose one thing to do for yourself NOW. I am not going to tell you to stop going to Starbucks or lower your cable bill. I am, however, asking you to do just one thing. It can be to pay a few more dollars on your monthly mortgage, to call your credit card company to ask for a lower interest rate, or to increase your 401k withholding. Do one thing – right now.
Your career is how you make money to live your life. It is what sustains your style of living, and how you spend your time at work. If you are lucky, it’s fulfilling, progressive, and successful.

Your life mission, on the other hand, is your DESTINY. It’s your soul yearning. It’s what inspires you. It sparks your mind, satisfies your heart, and fills your soul. It’s your legacy. It may or may not be the same thing as your career. It may take over your career or it may be completely separate from it.

Your life mission may be family, church life, or volunteering and your career may be finance, technology or catering. This arrangement may completely fulfill you, however, when it doesn’t, you should discover your life mission. Your mind wonders, and your heart and soul yearn for it.

Being happy is an active process. It does not just show up because you wish it.

Here are 3 active things you can do right away:

  • Be kind to yourself. Show yourself compassion. Treat yourself as you would a friend or your child. Would you tell a friend or your child he or she is not good enough? Would you forget to give your friend or child breakfast, lunch or dinner? Would you keep your friend or child up until all hours of the night to finish a project? The answers are, most probably, no. So do not treat yourself that way either.
  • Be grateful. Start each day by being thankful for another new day. It’s a gift, so be thankful for it. Also, throughout the day, change your language to, “I GET to do x,y,z versus I HAVE to do x,y,z.”
  • A few examples are, “I GET to pick up my children from soccer.” “I GET to go grocery shopping.” “I GET to go to work.” Think about it, you are lucky enough to have healthy kids who can play soccer, enough money to buy your groceries and you have a job. You are lucky, so you GET to do these things.
  • Be forgiving. Begin by forgiving yourself. Think of one thing you have done in the past that was embarrassing, stupid or naughty, and forgive yourself for it. Note your age and forgive yourself for not knowing any better. You were only x years old, so cut yourself come slack. Forgiving yourself of this one thing may help you forgive yourself for others. Forgiving yourself makes it easier to forgive others and vice versa.
  1. Be armed with knowledge.
    1. Know your value. Dust off the resume you wrote when you got your job. What was your starting salary and starting level? Make notes on your history of promotions and raises. Then look at recent history, have you gotten more responsibility since your last promotion and raise? If so, list your new responsibilities. Have you been doing an incredibly good job lately? If so, highlight your successes.
    2. Get your latest review and notate your progress against your objectives. What is your rating and how have you performed against your objectives? Be realistic. If you are a 3 rating and did not perform well against your objectives, you are not going to get a highly positive response from your boss. If, however, you got a 4 or 5 rating and have achieved your objectives, this may substantiate your request for higher compensation.
    3. How does your salary rate compared to others? Research the industry salary ranges being mindful of geography. Talk to HR and find out your company salary ranges. Where do you rank? Are you in the top 20%, mid 50% or bottom 30%? Knowing this is helpful to determine whether you are asking for a raise or a salary adjustment. If you are in the top or mid ranges, you are asking for a raise. If you are in the bottom range, you should ask for a salary adjustment.
    4. What is the annual average increase percentage? You may not be able to discover the company percentage, but you can research the industry average and you certainly know your own. Do not talk with friends at your company. This is completely unprofessional and will not help you make your case with your boss.
    5. What is your total compensation? Salary is only one component. Do you receive bonuses, stock, options, or benefits such as: tuition, car, phone reimbursement? If not, are these compensation variables for others in your organization? If so, what hierarchical levels?
    6. What other non-compensation benefits interest you? Would you welcome flex time, working at home, more vacation time? If so, every benefit is negotiable. List your priorities.
  2. Time it right:
    1. Waiting until your annual review is NOT the right time to ask for a raise. Your salary component has already been decided. In fact, your salary is determined during the budget process. Know when the budget process happens at your company. This is related to the fiscal year, most companies are on a calendar year (Jan – Dec), but many are at off times (July – June) or other month ranges. Find out your company’s fiscal year and back up that end month by 3 or 4 months. This is the start of the budgeting process at your company. Time your ask for this timeframe.
    2. Know the best time for your boss. Is he or she a morning person? If so, does he or she get in early to get a jump on the day? Is he or she in meetings throughout the day, but takes time at the end of the day to catch up and unwind? Does your boss travel during the week? If so, is he or she more available via phone when out of the office? Is he or she more likely to be approachable a certain day during the week?
    3. Is your boss a stickler for scheduling? If so, schedule time on his or her calendar to have this discussion. If not, stop by and tell him or her you want to talk about your career and opportunities at the company and the corresponding compensation levels. Be prepared and have your lists at the ready as he or she may say, “Sit down, let’s talk.”
  3. Be confident and objective:
    1. Practice asking for a raise in your bathroom mirror. Yes, practice. Your boss is not going to take you seriously if you cannot confidently ask for more money.
    2. Be positive when approaching your boss. If you are not positive, it does not seem reasonable to assume he or she will be.
    3. Do not include other employee’s salaries or levels. This is not about them, this is about you. Nothing turns off a boss more than someone saying, “Well, Sally makes X, so I should too.”
    4. Lay out your complete argument. Start with the pertinent highlights – your increased responsibilities, your successes, industry and company salary ranges and where you stand among them.
    5. Be thorough. Do not walk away before you feel you have talked about everything you want to discuss.  Your boss probably does not want to talk about this subject with you, so he or she will try to end the conversation prematurely. Be professional, but persistent. Be polite, but earnest. Be friendly, but insistent. This is your career and your livelihood.
  4. Be decisive, yet realistic:
    1. Before you schedule your conversation with your boss, know what you are willing to do if you do not get a raise. If your boss says no, be organized and ask what you can do to improve your chances next time. Ask what your boss and company are looking for from their employees.
    2. If you cannot get a salary increase or adjustment, be prepared and ask about other compensation and non-compensation benefits.
    3. If you do not get any positive feedback, then ask yourself if your boss or company is the best scenario for your career advancement.
    4. If not, are you willing to look for another job or another career? If so, make a plan. You need time to complete your resume, search for job opportunities, interview, and secure another position. Continue to be professional, hardworking and optimistic until you can continue your career elsewhere.
To create space, you have to figure out what is cluttering it up. Sometimes it’s physical and sometimes it’s mental.

Therefore, I have a question for you:

What is keeping you up at night? Whatever is keeping you up at night is typically your biggest problem. It’s the gnarly, thorny, nasty problem that may not have an easy solution. If it’s a recent problem, then give yourself an hour with paper and pen and outline a solution. It could be a complex issue that just needs some focus and critical thinking, so give it the attention it deserves. Pushing it off is only going to make it worse, so draw up a plan and start whittling away at it. However, if it is a chronic problem that is keeping you up at night, the problem needs a different approach. Whether it’s your job, finances, relationship, or family, you are a smart person and this problem is bigger than you right now. So, here’s the thing, you need to give yourself permission to ask for help. That’s right – you need help and you need to ALLOW yourself to ask for it. Think about someone who can help you find a solution and ask for help. If it’s a family member or friend, great – call him up. If it’s a professional, also great – call her up. If you need multiple people to help, great – call them all up. You have given yourself permission to get help with this problem, so get some help and start on your solution. Seriously, start getting the help you need to solve the problem. You will not be able to create space otherwise.

  1. Do you keep notes on your great ideas?
  2. Do you research the industry to see if anyone else is doing it?
  3. Do you expand on the idea to actually make or create it?
  4. Do you explore getting a registered trademark or patent to protect your new creation?

Many people have great ideas, but you need discipline and focus to turn an idea into reality. If you have actually gone through each of these steps and are still looking for ways to make money, you have a few options:

You can research industry leaders to buy your new creation.

You can look for a partner to help you produce and sell your new creation.

You can create your own business to produce and sell your new creation.

A famous man is quoted as saying, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right.” – Henry Ford

Think positively. That’s right – it sounds cliché but it’s true. If you think you can do something, you are more likely able to do it. So start each day saying, “I can do…..” then smile to yourself. That’s right – smile. It will make you feel better.
