Every entrepreneur has the “lone wolf” gene somewhere in their cellular make up.
The gene that just won’t let them be happy in a structured 9 to 5 existence.
So they come up with a business idea. And off they go on their own.
The problem is, no matter how well they’ve equipped themselves for their entrepreneurial adventure, they’re never equipped well enough. Being out there on your own brings challenges that an entrepreneur may never be able to overcome on their own. Read More
It’s been a long couple weeks.
Transformation weekend (a huge success) is finally wrapped. A week of private consults complete. Now I really want to get back to where I left off here.
Because there was a response on the blog that I wanted to address in particular.
During the transformation workshop, I shared a couple topics on the blog that we were covering live during the weekend. One post, about “who you are” relative to your business, prompted “Mary” to leave a comment… Read More
Here’s a blatantly obvious statement for the day:
Nothing happens in your business without action.
Of course you know that. But do you really know it? I mean to you live it?
I want you to think back and be honest – how many times have you set a goal that, in the end, you just let slide. How many times have you made a promise only to make an excuse later on for not keeping it?
Action is about accountability. Read More
Is it running like a speed skater gliding along on a sheet of freshly smoothed ice? Or do things feel more like you’re dragging a hundred pound weight through knee-deep mud?
Are you making the sales you want? Signing up the customers you’re after? Generating the traffic and leads you need to grow?
Or are you faced with too many objections? Feeling too much resistance (from outside AND inside your business)?
If you’re experiencing friction in any area of your business, I’d like to share an idea about why that may be the case for you.
But before I do, I need you to do something if you’re going to get the most out of this post. I need you to suspend all your beliefs about “business success”. (Just for a minute.) Let go of all your preconceived ideas about what’ll make your business a success.
Because what I’m going to share with you is going to sound a little crazy.
Heck, maybe a lot crazy.
Ready? OK. Then let’s go… Read More
Today I’ve got a huge post for you.
I going to reveal the secret of unlimited happiness and massive success. Or more specifically why you might feel like it’s always just out of your reach.
Why, despite your success, you still don’t feel fulfilled. Why you struggle, procrastinate and lose focus. Why nothing you do gives you the satisfaction that you desire so badly.
I want to walk you through an exercise that will reveal a secret so startling, I promise, it’ll turn your world upside down.
It shocked the hell out of me… Read More
And with the completion of our planet’s most recent loop around the sun, millions of people everywhere have all started on their annual quest for self-improvement… Working toward achieving their new year’s resolutions.
You’re going to lose those twenty pounds. Start reading more. Spend more quality time with your family. Give up some bad habit. Eat better. Whatever.
A new year. A new you.
Personally I think our quest to make resolutions is a positive thing. It’s a sign of our innate desire to better ourselves. To make that leap to a better life.
We’re programmed to want to do better. And that’s a good thing.
Unfortunately our results don’t often match our goals. Read More
That was my first reaction to the announcement about Rich’s transformation weekend.
The promise of “significantly moving the needle” in my business was exactly what I had been looking for. Exactly what I felt I needed.
My second reaction was a little different… Read More
Back in 1980, IBM had a problem.
They were in the market to start developing the concept of the personal computer. But they didn’t have any software that would run it.
Anyone can miss a big opportunity once…
In 1982, hot off directorial triumphs including “Jaws”, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” Steven Spielberg was busy working his next blockbuster – “E.T. – The Extraterrestrial”.
In one scene, the little boy protagonist of the film coaxes ET out of his hiding place by leaving a trail of candy.
It was a dark and stormy night…
Seriously it was.
And out of the throes of that New Years Eve snowstorm, one of the most (in)famous decisions in music (and business) history would be made…
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
