Episode 69 – Right Size Your Business (Growth Is Not Mandatory)

What’s With The Growth Thing?

Reach 6 figures, get a team, reach 7 figures! Then when you hit 7 figures, what’s next? Is it some time off?

No, of course not. Now the goal is 8 figures.

I’m guilty of this myself. I have no memory of my first $10k month because  my brain was already on to the next milestone.

I do remember my first $20k month because I was on holiday at the time, but my focus was on the next thing.

Episode 66 – What’s Your Next Level? (It Might Not Be The One You Think)

When we talk about ‘The Next Level’ in business, what are we normally talking about?

We’re usually talking about income.

Which is directly connected to our ideas of becoming more successful.

Making more money.

And generally, the conversation stops there.

But then why do we want money?

To make life easy. To take away ‘problems’. To buy more stuff. To do more things.

And why do we want that?

Episode 65 – How I’m Living My Entrepreneurial Design

I believe strongly that we should be starting a business that fits our personality.

The main tool I use when I work with clients (and any one can get theirs free) is The Entrepreneurial Design Profile.

This tool enables me to see how broad a focus someone should have in order to maintain their interest in the business.
