Whether you are transitioning from a corporate job to another field or to becoming an entrepreneur and going out on your own, it’s a unique experience. Or perhaps you’ve been an entrepreneur all along but there’s something else you’d like to be doing that’s more meaningful to you. Transition has its challenges while also being incredibly exciting. I offer some common experiences and tips to expect as you transition from one thing to another.
A continuation of last week’s Talking Stick episode, this week we get more specific on three ways customer’s behavior using technology has changed and how we need to adapt. In summary, they want to stay where they are, one size does not fit all, and they want to feel like one in a million. Listen in to understand the strategies you’ll need to keep up and be ready for the future. Until it changes again.
One of the biggest challenges businesses face today is keeping up with changes in customer behavior. Never is this truer than the gap that is created between how customers are behaving on technology and how businesses are using technology. In this two-part series, I will address this problem. In this episode, Part 1, we focus on websites and how mobile-user behavior is having a major impact on marketing your business. (more…)
A fun week of travel and several unplanned visits leads me to understand a valuable lesson about having a diverse business model. My hope is that you will be empowered to be true to yourself to build a diverse business model that can open up your world in ways that you can’t imagine right now.
You know the common term to level up your business? In this episode, I lay out the 4 levels of business development from zero to $1 million to everything in between. It’s only important that you reach the level YOU want to. You’ll gain an understanding of each level, what it may feel like to you at this level and how to level up if you chose to do so.
The whole idea of work/life balance is a misnomer. Or is it even work/life balance that you strive for? Perhaps it’s more of a relationship between money and lifestyle. As you’ll hear in this episode, there’s a time to attain and a time to attune. And it very well may be that at different stages of life, while one is in attainment mode that work/life balance is a struggle. Whereas when one is in the attunement stage of life, you may be more interested in the relationship between the life you want to live and how hard you’re willing to work to support your lifestyle. Which begs the question- are you fitting life into work or work into life?
Why has failure been glamourized? As if it’s some badge of honor, a rite of passage or something we need to go through as Warriors. It’s not. It’s all in how you look at it. I share how I look at “failure”, or don’t see it at all actually. You’ll understand once you listen and will realize you have far more control than you might think to see it as you chose. No more “fail fast” theories. You don’t need to fail fast. You can Master Fast.
The power of a single word. The power to change your perspective. My hope is that thinking in terms of thresholds as you go through changes in life, particularly in midlife, will help you embrace the process. Which can at times be painful, frustrating and scary. Perhaps it’s because you’ve been thinking you’re going through a transition instead of a threshold.
My book, LINGO is a branding and marketing strategy. But this episode is about your inner lingo. Meaning, I believe it’s incredibly important to pay attention to the energy behind what you say and think. That’s your inner lingo. To accelerate getting what you want out of your business and life, you want to align your inner lingo with your outer lingo and the thoughts in your mind.
We often wear perfection like a badge of honor. But is it really? Or is it a negative fuel source cloaked in a great outcome? This conversation with a friend over Sunday brunch may give you a different perspective and reframe perfection to excellence. I explore the difference and challenge you to consider the difference in your own life between perfection and excellence.
