Being a creative warrior and an entrepreneur takes bravery. If you weren’t courageous you wouldn’t have taken the leap to where you are today. But courage is also an ongoing action. To live our best lives we need to be always challenging and pushing at our comfort zone.
Encouraging someone when they’ve hit a wall and are frustrated is, of course, a good thing. Reminding them that it’s “always darkest before the dawn” and “change is right around the corner” is also helpful. But there are times these encouraging words just aren’t enough. When someone is brutally honest and says, “I know. But I’ve been here so many times.” They are tired of the cycle. We all know that cycle. We hit a wall, we pick ourselves up, only to find ourselves at that same frustrating point later on. In this episode, I offer a strategy on how to break through the breakthrough problem once and for all. (more…)
As creative warriors, our challenges in staying focused are well documented. We chase a lot of squirrels as we like to say. So what’s the difference then, between being focused, and being fully engaged? And how can we, with practice, train our minds to be our most productive? Let’s find out!
Ask almost anyone what their greatest obstacle is, and they are likely to say themselves. What we can learn, and you can learn to do so in this episode, is to get to yes within yourself. To let go of the inner battle, look at your most worthy opponent in the eye, which is yourself, and negotiate a win/win deal.
I was asked recently what I thought the #1 thing was that people needed to know that would make the biggest difference in their business and life. That’s no easy question to answer! It was a case of knowing the answer but not having the words to describe it. I’ve given it a lot of thought so that I could not only answer the question but actually offer you something to do with it. An understanding of the concept and ideas on how to make something of it. So here it is. What I believe is the #1 thing that will make a difference in your business and life. (more…)
How would you like to have a business where people are lining up at your door to get in? Where the demand is far greater than the supply. Apple creates this frenzy every time they create a new product. Is it that it’s really the best product? Or are they masters at creating a buzz? As you’ll learn today, being in demand, over subscribed as Daniel calls it, is a strategy. A strategy that you can employ so people are knocking down your door too.
This week we’re talking with Josh Linkner about reinvention. This isn’t your typical reinvention, like to resurrect from the dead, no, this type of reinvention in the words of our guest is the necessary process of proactively crafting a new future, and I would say this is a very necessary mindset and practice to move forward, stay relevant, and succeed in business today.
Do you know that feeling when you hear something exactly when you needed to hear it? Feels great, right? While it often feels like a coincidence, doesn’t it make you wonder if it is? I’m a believer in collective consciousness– that there is a constant stream of consciousness. That usually, our thoughts are not unique and it may be that we are picking up on the collective. The benefit to you as an entrepreneur in knowing this is, imagine how great you can make people feel if you show up in their lives with your marketing ideas and with your meaningful message at just the right time. By listening, you can show exceptional timing. (more…)

We usually refer to the cost of doing business as time and money spent. As Creative Warriors, since it is often our own talent and skills that we derive our income from, we need to consider the other costs of doing business. The real costs of business, such as the energy spent, time wasted, and the ways we hold ourselves back dealing with our own conflicted thoughts.
