Advice: “Keep getting more clear and more concise with the way your plan flows.”
Sounds easy right?
What if I told you I can give you ass pats and high fives AND hold you to a high standard of accountability?
Did you know that both of these things are possible to give and/or receive within the same conversation?
I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been feeling almost like my “things” are all caving in on me.
I don’t really think that I’ve actually acquired that much new stuff since the last time I went through and purged to create more space but somehow, it does feel that way.
Recently a client brought up a thing that I had said a couple of years ago when I was making a large life choice that made everyone in my world VERY uncomfortable…. “I don’t owe anyone an explanation other than-‘Because I want to’“.
It took me back into the space I was in when I learned that lesson for the first time.
When did it become so normal to apologize for our success? Frankly, we apologize for entirely too much. So much so that the value of the words “I’m sorry” doesn’t really hold much merit in a lot of situations.
When did “I’m not available at that time, I’m sorry” become the way we all auto respond to things that don’t fit specifically into someone else’s request?
Whelp- It’s all very ass backwards if you ask me and it’s time it starts to shift.
Last week I found myself sitting in a quiet room housed within a building that was created in 1875 alongside the river in a small town that feels like it had to be here when America first started.
I knew I had a deadline that I was already past to deliver the latest podcast episode and then it dawned on me that I did not bring my ‘podcast notebook’ with me.
Shit. Now what?
More and more frequently I’ve found myself in conversations with various people from all different walks of life about things they’re noticing make them feel overly drained or zoned out.
One of my friends said “I always feel like I’m more dumb and a zombie after scrolling”.
I went on to explain to her how normal that actually is (these days at least) and how it’s actually a massive exchange of energy that’s happening that we’re really not recognizing, therefore not making different choices OR giving that action the space it deserves without draining the life out of you.
When your team becomes your family.
It’s been such an interesting ride in building a virtual business these past 6 years. I remember when the thought of working with a coach or subcontractor that I’d never met before felt so foreign, or temporary.
Looking back I realize that due to the way I originally learned that business was “supposed” to be, that is where those beliefs came from.
“Good help is hard to find”
“Finding someone who is reliable is almost impossible”
“Sometimes you just need to find a warm body to fill the chair”
These are all things that I’m sure we’ve all heard a time or two when working in a management position or owning a business. These are things that we believe to be true because, well that’s what everyone says is true. Continue reading “Delegation”
Security. What does it really mean to you? Have you ever thought about it? Where does it come from? How do we create it? Or can we truly ever have it?
There are a lot of questions posed by this word that many have never taken the time to think about before.
Sometimes we go through life grasping for things that make us feel just a little safer or we create defense mechanisms that we think give us security. Is that kind of safety and security actually a ruse?
This topic was brought up to me recently in terms of what I help people build in the form of a solid foundation within themselves and their businesses. And man, was it a cool moment on seeing another layer to this practice. Continue reading “Real Security”
We all seem to want more of something… but maybe it feels like an empty desire. One that’s fun to say but doesn’t seem at all like it could ever be a reality. OR maybe it feels sad or discouraging because nothing ever seems to work out right.
There’s never enough money or time or progress… What if I told you that you could flip that narrative and start actually getting more?
Well– what you track… grows.
