Imagine sitting in your chair as you stare off into space listening to the drones of a voice on the other end of the phone. The voice asks you what your KPI’s are, moving people to different seats on the bus, and then onto another key point from the latest best selling business book on the New York Times bestseller list.

Do you ever wonder how you have gotten this far in business?

The feeling that at any moment, someone’s going to pull back the curtain, see what’s really going on and yell “Ah Ha! I knew it!” and take it all away? 😧 Most of the experts I talk to feel this way. They know their industry inside and out, but they also know that many others do as well.  “What happens when my luck runs out?” ⌛️ This thought process causes anxiety and those 2 AM wakeups where your mind is going…

This is why the economy wasn’t the problem…

The truth is, someone else in the same industry did just fine when the economy collapsed.  I’ve heard “because of the economy…” three times this week as an excuse.  It wasn’t the economy.  I learned this the hard way as there was a time that I used to blame something, or someone, external of myself for the issues in my business…and in my life.  The reality is that if someone else in the same business did well during the economic…

Got lots of ideas, yet still in the same place?

The world is full of great ideas and people that haven’t taken action on them. If this is you, then you can rest assured that you’re not alone. Of course, this also the same as saying you’re average. Sorry, but when you’re in the majority, you’re in the average. This isn’t always a bad thing, but when it comes to living your life or driving your business, do you really want average? I didn’t think so. If you’re a business…

How do I get over a scarcity mindset?

First, it’s important to understand that on the opposite side of scarcity is abundance and gratitude. This is important to realize because when in a state of abundance or being grateful, you can’t be in a state of scarcity. Second, it’s good to know a little…

Feeling trapped?

This is more common than most people care to admit – especially with business owners and CEOs.  They have a great idea, start a business, dot their I’s and cross their T’s… … then they put their head down and get to work.  They’re capable of handling more work than most and that’s why they so often get trapped.  These successful business owners, and CEOs, push the line to the max.  When they pick their head up, they realize they’ve…

This is why you procrastinate

When there’s something in your life you want, big or small, and you find yourself putting it off time and time again, then the reality is that it’s not that important to you. What’s happening is that you’re associating more pain to taking action than you’re currently experiencing from not doing anything. Of course, you could just be enjoying the excuses. Many do, though few want to admit it. But let’s say this isn’t you. You don’t enjoy playing the…

5 Reasons You Might Want To Sober Up

As a coach, I get the opportunity to look inside the lives of my clients. It’s a privilege I don’t take lightly. These high-performers can push the lines in all areas of their lives. Their ability to push through is often one reason they’ve become successful. Often times, this drive also causes them to find ways to decompress with equal vigor. Over the past week, I’ve had two people reach out to me and share their desire to stay sober.

Do you pay it forward?

Do you pay it forward? Darcy, my right-hand woman, and I decided to head out and work from a coffee shop. She was visiting so we could do some planning for a project we’re launching in 2019. Darcy ordered her drink, then I ordered mine, but I couldn’t help but notice the woman sitting at the bar looking at me as I talked to the barista. Obviously, she was checking me out… …except that she wasn’t. As I pulled out…
