WARRIOR OF RESILIENCE
We often believe that if we throw a wide net we’ll catch more fish. This mentality doesn’t actually work in business. If you spread yourself too wide you won’t be able to find the audience you need. You’ll end up having a hard time explaining yourself and your business, and people will not trust that you can do everything you claim.
WARRIOR OF DRAGON TAMING
It’s common for people to build a business or start a career and then see it all start to fall apart. We may begin to lose that sense of fulfillment, or our sales start to suffer. This doesn’t mean we are failures or aren’t good enough. You’ve probably just outgrown your current situation. It may be time for you or your business to pivot and find a new direction.
WARRIOR OF TENACITY
We often times ask ourselves how we are feeling. When we focus on this question, we concentrate on the negatives. What we should be asking ourselves is, “How are we thinking?” You need to concentrate on your outlook and the positive aspects of the journey you are on.
WARRIOR OF TRY and TRUST
What’s stopping you from making money on your passions? Do you feel you’re not ready yet? That your work isn’t good enough? That you just don’t have the time to get it all done? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the problem is you.
WARRIOR OF CALM
There’s a delicate balance between work life and personal life. If you have too much of one and not the other it can make you feel depressed, lonely, and uninspired. Some people put work before their loved ones, and this causes them to run into a rut. You lose out on that much needed break to develop the love you can spread across all aspects of your life. Don’t stress though, you can easily find that balance that makes you a Creative Warrior in everything you pursue!
Technology moves quickly, and is growing at an exponential rate. As entrepreneurs, or solopreneurs, how do we keep up? Startups and tech companies alike have been breaking the barriers we know with the tech industry. Tech companies aren’t just exclusive to “techies” anymore. Shocking, isn’t it? It’s become all inclusive, extending to the right brainers as well, or as Scott Hartley calls them, the “Fuzzies.” This week we discuss automation, self driving cars, and all other aspects of technology. Don’t worry though, it’s here to help us!
THE HERO WARRIOR
Being a leader takes a lot more than just telling people what to do. It’s about accountability and impact. As individuals, we are capable of so much more than we could even imagine at times. We are all naturally polar with our personalities, and until we learn to own those sides, we won’t be able to reach our true potential as leaders. We must be whole in order to help others or even help ourselves.
WARRIOR OF GRATEFUL PATIENCE
Our days can be long. Sometimes hard, tiring, and just plain exhausting. What makes you smile? When do you stop yourself throughout the day to take a moment and appreciate a small celebration? We can get caught up in what we’ve done wrong, or what we don’t have, and we forget to take time to just smile about what we DO have. That’s exactly why Ryan Esbjerg started “Flex Your Face.”
WARRIOR OF LIGHT
One of the most important rules in business: be authentic. But there is one equally as important in today’s booming business world: stay relevant. Combine these two together, and your business could dominate the marketplace. How do we adapt to the mindset of consumers? How do we look at the business landscape as free range, instead of getting stuck in the habits of big business culture?
THE STAND UP WARRIOR
As entrepreneurs, we spend a lot of time planning our success. How will we get there? What will it take? What should I build my business on? We focus on the building and maintaining portion of our careers or businesses. What about our exit plan? What happens when we’ve reached the end of the road for our business or career? It’s just as important to have an exit plan, as it is anything else in your business.
