My First Business Trip

My First Business Trip

*Originally Published July 12, 2019

I took my first business trip when I was 20. I was working for a Risk Management company at the time and the team I was a part of worked for one of the nation’s largest waste management companies. The division I worked for hosted their yearly training in Las Vegas and I was able to go. All expenses paid. It was amazing.

Second time ever being on a plane, first time ever traveling alone. Looking back now I don’t remember having the awareness of how great of an opportunity that was. Continue reading “My First Business Trip”

Fear

Fear

FEAR. It’s always present…no matter what “level” you think you’re at, no matter what type of change you’re facing. Fear is always present, whether you want to admit it or not. Here are all examples from conversations I’ve had recently:

>Reviewing a contract for a million dollar purchase agreement that means owning his dream business.
>Doubling her location size and adding a $300 additional expense weekly, but being able to expand clientele for the first time in 2 years.
>Looking his choices and reality in the face and forcing himself to tell the truth for the first time in his life.

Ya know, that goal you set earlier this year. That thing you declared you were going to do this year.

That weight you were going to lose. That new regimen you were going to put in place. That new business you were going to start. That new program you were going to launch. That new part of your lifestyle you were determined to implement. That weekly quality time with your wife or husband that you were going to start making a priority. That time you were going to make sure you spent taking care of yourself. That money you were going to start saving. That debt you were going to pay off.

Whatever that “thing” was that you proclaimed that you were going to focus on, change, and handle this year… It just hasn’t happened.

Life happened instead. Continue reading “Didn’t Stick To The Plan?”

The Choice is Yours

The Choice is Yours

Look, a Coach isn’t going to stop you from being a pussy.

It’s not going to stop you from being scared.
They’re not going to wave a magic wand that suddenly makes you jump into gear and quit being a lazy ass.

It all comes down to a CHOICE.
It’s all a choice that YOU get to make. Continue reading “The Choice is Yours”
