The Kindness Paradox: Flipping the Script on Entrepreneurial Self-Talk

Let’s play a little game of truth-telling. When was the last time you looked in the mirror and thought/said, “Wow, I’m absolutely crushing it today!”? If you’re like most business people I know, you’re probably more likely to share the 101 things you should/could have done better. We are our own worst critic. It’s a bit of a paradox. As entrepreneurs, we’re wired to chase perfection, innovate, and continuously improve. That’s great for business. When it comes to self-talk, we often sound like Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh), “I could have aced that presentation if only I’d added more stats,” [...]

Navigating Business the Star Trek Way: Lessons from the Ferengi ‘Rules of Acquisition’

Greetings, fellow entrepreneurs and Star Trek aficionados! As we beam into Star Trek Day (Happy September 8th), I'm reminded of the myriad of lessons and allegories the series offers.

Let's warp into this cosmic journey and determine which rules can guide our entrepreneurial path and which ones might lead us astray.

In the ever-evolving world of real estate, I've often emphasized the pivotal role of recognizing and adapting to a prospect’s unique behavioral style.

The Art of Scheduling: Lessons from an Overbooked Monday

Occasionally, I mess up. A few Mondays ago, I played the role of an epic idiot. Typically, on Monday afternoon, I have a 1–2 pm meeting, which rarely lasts until 2, followed by half-hour appointments at 2, 3, and 4 pm. On this particular Monday, I had scheduled a podcast recording (an activity I love doing) for the 2 o’clock slot, while rescheduling my original 2 pm appointment to fit into the 3:30 to 4 pm slot. THEN, an opportunity arose to visit a group and talk about an amazing upcoming event (the Referral Accelerator, on June 14th). I was supposed [...]

Are You Alive?

It was an actual text that I sent this weekend. “Are you alive?” It had been a few weeks since I had heard from this person, and I was starting to worry. It is not unusual for him and I not to speak all the time however, he did miss my husband’s birthday and is rarely on social media. Thankfully, he responded that same day and all is well. However, this got me thinking about the people in our referral network who we may have lost touch with… When was the last time your referral sources heard from you? Are [...]

Happy National Sock Day

It probably comes as no surprise that today is a holiday I choose to celebrate. I’ve always loved to know the history of holidays. Where did National Sock Day come from? Apparently, it was the sock company Pair of Thieves that created National Sock Day on December 4th. Then, in 2016, it was declared (though, I did not know who declares national holidays until now – the Registrar at National Day Calendar) December 4th to be National Sock Day. If socks are your thing like they are mine, there are other sock-related holidays – May 8th is National No Sock Day and [...]

Announcing the More Time World Tour

“There is never enough time in the day.” {sigh} Or is there? What if I said, “Yes! There is an abundance of time in the day. You always the time for the things that are important to you. I know that is opposite to what many people all over the world are saying. Or, a slight variation, like: · Too much to do, not enough time. · Not enough hours in the day. · Never enough time to get everything done. It can be EXHAUSTING just thinking those phrases, yet alone living them on a daily basis. For me, it was 2005 when [...]

Plants, Michael Jordan, and my un-Green Thumb

I don't think I have a green thumb. Though, my neighbor just told me that I do. For most of my life, I thought I had a black thumb. I had killed every plant I ever bought, including cactus & bamboo. If it's green, I can kill it. In March of 2020 (pre- the world shutting down), something weird happened. I bought a plant from Publix, and I kept it alive for a couple of months. That little bit was enough to give me the confidence to try to grow more plants. I had an Aerogarden that my mother-in-law had [...]

The Puppies Networking Brought Me

Networking is so much more than just going to meetings and shaking hands. Much more than signing into Zoom, making sure you are on mute, and waiting your turn to talk. Networking is the gateway to potential relationships and what they can create from that. And in July, I was excited to welcome into my home 2 brand new puppies, Guinness and Harper. Now, you might be wondering why I am talking to you about my dogs... I promise it comes around. After losing Kalie, my 16-year-old Maltese, at the end of May, Rob and I decided a couple of [...]
