• Are you starting a new business or growing an existing one?

    • Are you asking the classic questions: Who Stays, Who Goes, What do I keep doing and What do I STOP?

  • Are you stuck and wondering what is the best next step?

    • Leadership is knowing what to do next, why it is important and what resources are required

  • Are you looking for direction, for “Blue Ocean” and the motivation to make a pivot?

    • Is God giving you direction? Are you asking? Are you listening?

  • Could you use a better plan and process to get you there?

    • Do you have wise counsel?

  • God has placed His creative nature in all of us. Business is a wonderful creative space and wisdom is available.

As a business owner I get what it’s like. I have built two multi-million dollar enterprises and exited both well. The road is challenging. I needed help. When I found help, things got better, moved faster and there was peace.

We all start with a dream and then the dream meets reality. Often in that battle our dreams start to shrink. Possibility thinking is replaced with circling the wagons. We experience the insanity of expecting different results while continuing the same practices. As we manage our work and thinking often our creativity shrinks and anxiety grows.

We think back to our original goal to become an entrepreneur. The idea thrilled us. We dreamed about working less, earning more money and having more freedom. We knew it would be worth the pain to live the lifestyle we desired!

The idea and dreams about taking more vacations, spending more time with family/friends, and simply getting to do all the things that bring us joy was fuel for our fire.

  Are your dreams still possible?

Living your dream is possible with possibility thinking!

You see, I meet a lot of people – going to conferences, seminars, and networking – and I’ve witnessed so many professionals who fall short in their success because they haven’t learned to do the most important things that will give them the greatest return on their investment.

Instead, business owners are doing the following costly mistakes…

·       The founder or owner is doing what he/she should NOT do. Delegation is challenging.

What are 3 things that you do regularly that you know you should not do?

·       Business leaders work hard but often do not find time for the most important work

What has to happen in your work in the next 90 days?

·       Often Christian business owners keep workers in place who are poor performers

Give your direct reports a school grade - A to F, any scoring below a B, make a plan

·       Many CEOs and Presidents fail to reflect every 90 days on the plan and reality

Take 2 hours every 90 days and reflect on goals set, reality and then re-set your goals

 . Many leaders live in isolation - isolation is dangerous

Make a plan to connect with someone outside your business who has capacity and competence

Today is a new day, enough is enough.  Seek a new path. Create a break through.

Now the time for you!
