Are you coachable?

Now, if you were a professional athlete like a golfer, swimmer, runner, gymnast, or soccer player, then I wouldn’t be writing this.

After all, you wouldn’t need convincing that coaching is a necessary and valuable tool. As an athlete, you would already know this, and would probably have at least one coach involved in your career.

So why is it that we, as small business owners and entrepreneurs, feel that we can walk this journey alone?

The world of business is getting faster, and more competitive and complex every year.

Build Your Dream Business

Ready to Build Your Dream Business?

This week I’m not sharing any insights or industry news with you – sorry.

Instead, I would like to share some personal news and, at the same time, ask for your advice and input.

 As this is a community of entrepreneurs and business owners, you may already be running your own successful business, or you may be itching to start one soon.

Do You Read Enough?

A recent survey in America found that more than 3 out of 10 adults stated they wanted to read more. It also found that book reading is second only to exercise as the most desired activity.

How has the pandemic affected you?

In the past, it was easy to look ahead. To create our goals; to plan for a better future for ourselves and our families; and to envision our future desires – like a new house, a better car, or a new job.

But the future doesn’t feel so certain anymore, does it?

So what we tend to do instead, is focus more on the past and the present. During this very unsettling time of lockdown, our attention has shifted from planning our future, to dealing with the repercussions of our past.

How to Confront Procrastination

Are you guilty of delaying work that needs to be completed until the last minute?
Maybe it’s a task you need to complete, a proposal you need to submit to a client, or an errand your spouse asked you to do.

I’m sure we’ve all gone through some extent of procrastination over the years – I certainly have. Studies show that over 20% of adults put off or avoid doing certain tasks by allowing themselves to be overtaken by distractions.

The birth of a dream (28 years in the making)

I’ve been involved in entrepreneurial activities my entire working life, (albeit with ‘sideline’ ventures), but I spent most of my career in the corporate world instead of following my passion. In addition to growing my own business, I’ve always dreamed of working with business owners and entrepreneurs to help them with their own companies. It …
