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.
WARRIOR OF RECIPROCITY
Inspired by a week of events and conversations, I talk about acceptance within ourselves and from others. Similar to my TEDx Talk where I suggest that when we allow ourselves to see what others see in us, that it can help us expand beyond our self-limiting expectations, when we are accepted by others it helps us accept ourselves.
Warrior of Reciprocity
This question, “What do you own?”, is both practical and philosophical. I cover multiples sides of the importance of ownership from why it’s important for your business to knowing how what you own can help you carve out a place for yourself in the world.
Warrior of Reciprocity
After last week’s Talking Stick episode when I suggested that the reason Warriors experience so many ups and downs is that parts of their entrepreneur ecosystem are not functioning well, I received a few inquiries asking about the entrepreneur ecosystem. In this episode, I explain the many elements of a healthy entrepreneur ecosystem.
