Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Rachel Woods and I am a website makeover expert. I easily take worn down, non-converting websites and turn them into fresh, visibly attractive and SEO-friendly websites. I am also a member of a business makeover team. You can find out more about me at .
How do you bring ideas to life?
I keep a notebook with me at all times so when ideas come, I can jot them down. At the end of the week, I look through my list and categorize them by what’s doable now and what I can implement later. Once I have an idea I really like, I play it out in my head and start asking questions about it. That’s when I decide if it’s a go or not. If it needs more work, I put it on a list for later; if it is ready to go, then I start putting together my team.
What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?
My all time favorite book is Paul McKenna’s Change Your Life in Seven Days. It includes a hypnosis CD, deals with all areas of life and really shows you how to be richer in every area. It has been a huge asset to me this year and I look forward to re-reading it again next year.
What is one piece of advice that you’d like to give?
Trust yourself. Not the little voice that tells you it’s too hard or you’ll never do it, but the true voice that cheers you on and gives you that initial excitement. Once you have that initial excitement about an idea, hold onto it and relive it every time you need an extra boost.
What is one idea that you’re going to bring to life in 2012?
My team and I are creating a program called C.O.A.S.T. It is a step-by-step system for how to truly manifest your desires EASILY and live your best life ever. I’m all about games and having fun. The system includes lots of games which makes the manifesting process so much fun. Also included are guided visualizations that are 100% interactive–and that is my favorite part! I personally have easily manifested many things using the system and I am really excited to launch it this upcoming year!
