Authentic Leadership: Leaders Aren’t Born, They Are Made

Authentic Leadership: Leaders Aren’t Born, They Are Made

A good quote and reminder for you:

“Leaders aren’t born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.”
~ Vince Lombardi

As we march the sometimes lonely solopreneur journey to business success, there is suffering and doubt marching by our sides. We wonder if we really have what it takes to make our dreams and goals a reality.

You do have what it takes…

You have a great responsibility…

People ARE watching and listening to you (even when you are convinced otherwise).

Authentic Leadership is something I believe very strongly in.

Being authentic is all about being genuine. Taking the time to be present and listen to […]

Perfection is the Enemy of Progress!

Perfection is the Enemy of Progress!

“Perfection is the Enemy of Progress!” Churchill said that and boy was he right!

I had a coaching call with a client last week He had awesome ideas and he had all the potential in the world, but his business was just inching along.

His website was half baked, he hadn’t gotten any paying customers yet and he was stuck in the “questioning stage” of his new online adventure.

What was the problem?

He wasn’t “ready” because he still felt a need to perfectly identify his exact target market, his exact marketing message, his perfect title, and his flawless coaching process.

The perfection myth is a rabbit hole if I’ve ever seen one. Truly.

There is NO SUCH THING as perfect. So there is no need […]

The Grass is NOT Greener on the Other Side

The Grass is NOT Greener on the Other Side

“The grass is NOT greener on the other side.” I’ve said that a lot in the past year or two… and it is total #truth.

Have you ever looked at someone you admire and think about how easy they must have it or how much you wish you could experience what they experience?

“The Grass IS Greener on the Other Side” concept has been around for a long time and expresses our lack of personal fulfillment and distraction in always looking at what others have, thinking it must be easier or better.

That couldn’t be more false.

If you ever find yourself looking at someone else, wishing you had what they had, I want you to know it is simply an opening, an awareness […]

You Don’t Have to Be All Things, to All People, All the Time

You Don’t Have to Be All Things, to All People, All the Time

Today, I have a very important reminder for you.

You don’t have to be all things, to all people, all the time.

Is that incredibly zesty and refreshing?

Let me tell you why this came up for me this week…

I recently got a very interested prospect emailing me saying he wanted me to help him grow his wife’s multi-six-figure business into a multi-million dollar business.

Their website was great. Their topic was killer. But, the answer immediately came to me… I wasn’t a fit for what they would need out of me.

My passion is in working with entrepreneurs who are just starting, or even have an existing business, and help them grow up to multi-six-figures. (More on that below)

After eight years in business […]

Overcome Failures and Flaws for Faster Results

Overcome Failures and Flaws for Faster Results

Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn. Boy, isn’t that the truth?

Sometimes we scroll through our Facebook feed and feel super lame, inadequate or like we’re just plain not good enough. I hate that feeling!

It’s a very common response that springs from social media though. We see all the “good stuff” people promote and we feel like we can’t keep up.

But….

Just because you are a coach or expert does not mean you are supposed to be flawless or perfect.

It is the imperfection or “failures” that make us better and stronger than ever before.

So if you screw up or get a bad result don’t EVER think you are a fraud! Instead think you now have more tools in your toolbox to get […]
