Opportunities or Road Blocks... It's Your Choice

Aug 07, 2017

As a Core Energy Coach, I help my clients use a mindset that works FOR them instead of AGAINST them.  Most of my clients are business owners.  It's sad that business owners tend to talk themselves into the most self-damaging ways.  To be clear, when I first heard of Core Energy Coaching, I thought, "How can changing your thoughts change the facts of your situation?"  The point is NOT changing the facts; but clearly identifying the difference between FACTS and...

Small Business Owner Thinking Dilemma And How It Stunts Growth

Jul 31, 2017

Statistically, large companies produce $250,000 per year in revenue per employee; while the average small business generates $100,000 per year in revenue per employee.  This is a 70% advantage... WHY?

Corporate Mind Set

A large company needs to continually provide a return on investment or their stock will plummet; and a lot of anxious investors will lose equity.  This reality means that the management team needs to be on top of its game.  The CEO and managers of a large...

Who Can Own a Business? Do You Have What it Takes?

Jul 24, 2017

Do you have what it takes to run a business?  YES.

As a writer, I guess I should not tell you the answer to the question I have posed right off the bat.  However, there is a second question that is probably more important, "What does it take to succeed in business?"  You see, many people think that in order to succeed in business, you need to have a lot of smarts, or money, or luck or something special... and if you weren't born with it, you're destine to some other role in...

The Opportunity of Choice: Where Are You Taking Your Business?

Jul 16, 2017

As a Coach, I tend to help people break through BLOCKS in how they think.  And there's no bigger block than when it comes to difficult decisions or CHOICE.  

My clients tend to suffer from one of three afflictions:

  1. Their mind is blank... they have nothing to choose from because nothing comes to mind at all;
  2. They feel they have too many choices and they are afraid they will make the wrong choice; or
  3. they are limited to one choice... and they don't like this choice.  

I thought...

Ian's Ice Rinks: Training and Letting People Do Their Way

Jul 09, 2017

Coach Russ met Ian at a local coffee shop.

He was concerned after hearing how frazzled Ian was over the phone. Ian was an acquaintance of Russ's for the last 10-years and have never really wanted to seek Russ's advice or coaching. As far as Russ knew, Ian was some sort of engineer and ran a successful engineering firm.

Whenever Russ asked Ian how things were going, Ian would always give the response, "Fine, fine. We're busy. Always good to be busy." But this time, Ian sounded like he was in a...

The First Rung of the Ladder: Looking for Opportunities

Jul 03, 2017

Carlos was reflecting on how happy he was with his family, his wealth and all of the achievements he had made in the food supply business.  Then his thoughts wandered to how hopeless he was only fifteen years ago...

15-Years Ago

Carlos was frustrated.  He felt like he had tried any job to make ends meet after he got his business degree 5-years ago; but nothing seemed to be a good fit.  He went to college to learn how to start and run his own business.  But the only...

Hal's Heating: How Underpricing Your Business Can Hurt It

Jul 02, 2017

Hal started his Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) repair shop called Hal's Heating ten years ago after leaving Heating Incorporated.  At Heating Inc., Hal was tired of being an employee and always felt like he could do better on his own.  When Hal first started, he sent out some flyers in his local community and started getting recognized.  He then added a few discount coupon advertisements in some bulk mailers that got him a few more clients on a monthly basis.

How to Empower Your Leaders to Make Independent Decisions

Jun 04, 2017

John owned a bakery that produced some of the best baked goods in his small town.

While his business was doing quite well, financially, he felt that he was a slave to his bakery. He felt like his bakery would fail if he were not present during the early morning preparation work, setting up the glass displays, and hiring employees that he required to run his bakery.

But then it happened. John had a heart attack one evening as he was closing out the cash registers for the day's work. John...

Serving Versus Winning in Business

May 30, 2017

I coach business owners and business executives and am often encouraged to learn how GIVING my clients are in every aspect of their lives.  

Unfortunately, when it comes to business, it seems, my clients struggle to make the transition from GIVING to WINNING in business. In fact, when a business owner decides to hire a coach, they're usually losing money and spending way too much time in their business.

Story Time

Jerry started a lawn-mowing business when he was 16....

Determining Your Business Blind Spots

May 22, 2017

If you're over the age of 16, you have hopefully learned that even with all of the mirrors in your car, you still need to twist your head in an odd position to see places that your mirrors can't see.  In the world of driving, these unseen areas are called BLIND SPOTS.

Coaches often say they help people see their BLIND SPOTS. It's always a challenge as a coach to market coaching services. If someone is BLIND to a challenge they are having, they are UNAWARE of the challenge; and...
