Marketing and Business Growth Strategist, International Speaker, Trainer, Radio Host and Best-selling Author, Patty Farmer has created a network of 100,000 + connections while teaching thousands of entrepreneurs, speakers and authors how to effectively network, market and position their businesses using a non-competitive and dynamic collaboration strategy.

Among Patty’s awards are the 2014 “International Collaborator of the Year”, the 2013 “Life-Changer of the Year” Award and she is known internationally as “The Networking CEO.”

Big Why

For Patty, it was freedom with a Capital F that outweighed everything else in her decision to become an entrepreneur…the freedom to choose your hours, to be with your family when you need to be. However, she cautions that you have to have discipline when you choose this life as well.

Mindset Challenge

Patty heard conversations asking her why isn’t it enough to have the status quo. She had to really explore this for herself in order to make a bigger impact in the world, especially since she had a family who totally embraced the traditional route.

She also had challenges around asking people to pay her to help them. Hear Patty discuss how she overcame these challenges. Patty uses a specific tool to help her with procrastination.

Energy Plan

Daily

Patty starts every day with her own form of meditation, which is simply just being still. She allows herself to listen. The most important thing she did was to clear out some space and set up a space where she can just take a break. This has made a tremendous difference.

Recharge

Loving on her puppies is a daily recharge but for a full recharge Patty goes to the spa and takes a day all to herself. She does this regularly about every six weeks.

Business Fun

Patty is doing something she has never done. She loves to serve in a small community and decided to do a retreat. Just listen to what happened when she surveyed her audience to ask where they wanted to go!

~ Favorite Food Find

Patty is an iced tea maven. She recently found an Arnold Palmer iced tea (a combo of tea and lemonade) which is pre-made and tastes great.

And she simply cannot survive without her Keurig Coffee Maker and her favorite flavors are Kahlua and Mudslide flavors (all non-alcoholic). According to Patty it’s just enough to perk her up but not keep her awake at night.

Her fave is by Bath and Body Works in their aromatherapy line called sensual, which is a mixture of jasmine and vanilla.
