We are all more than one thing. But self-employed entrepreneurs have been told over and over again that we can’t have a division between who we are in business and who we are at home. Studies show, however, that having and sharing other dimensions make you better at your job.
When I work with my coaching clients I help them connect the dots of who they are to figure out how they can serve their customers the most authentically. And believe me, we really dive in and find all the dots. We are all more than our jobs, so why do we feel pressure to pretend we are not? Sharing your “ands” is a wonderful way to stand out beyond your technical skills. They add texture to your humanity. It is important for self-employed business owners to bring their whole selves to their work, as well to give themselves the time and space to cultivate all of their sides.
To dive into the power of sharing our “ands” I’ve brought on nationally recognized speaker, emcee, and stand-up comedian, John Garret. John draws on his condition as a recovering Big Four CPA to deliver messages that hit home with corporate audiences. This professional member of the National Speakers Association is on a mission to shatter the definition of “stereotypical professional” and in the meantime, show organizations how to create a stronger culture that increases engagement and reduces turnover. John has performed for leading companies ranging from “Big Four” accounting firms to banks and technology companies to professional associations seeking an outside-of-the-box way to engage their audiences.
John reminds us that we can be good at our jobs without having them tattooed on our hearts. To learn how to fully embrace your “and,” download this episode now.
