Your Dream Was Made To Be Shared

Our “vision” leaks.

We leak because we are full of holes.

But don’t try and plug the holes, that would be like blocking off the spout on a watering can and then trying to irrigate your garden.

Your vision is meant to be shared.

We are designed to leak, that’s primarily how we give; the essence of who we are drips on the ground as we go about our daily business.

As you follow your dreams, build a business, start a non-profit, write a book, or lead your organization, every step forward you take involves the sharing of vision.

Please ensure that you refill, refocus and re-imagine “your vision” on a regular basis, this way the inspiration inside of you will never run dry.

The “One Thing” That Will Make Your Life A Success

It doesn’t matter  whether your writing a novel, starting a business or running a fortune 500 company, if you never achieve “this one thing” then all your other achievements may mean nothing at all.

You may not agree with me on this, that’s okay, I’m the one writing this post and it’s just my opinion.

All the problems in the world may be traced back to this one issue AND if you don’t deal with it in some shape or form with the “work of your life” then you probably won’t be doing work that matters.

What I am talking about?

I’m talking about that awful distance between individuals, the gap between people groups, between family members, between countries and between religions… anything that causes a lack of equity, anything that separates one from another.

Does your work in some ways, close this gap or does it increase it?

It’s a tough question but it’s an important one, what is your answer?

Facebook May Be Only Part Of The Problem

Facebook has taken a turn and you and I and all of our friends are to blame.

There have been many articles of late arguing Facebook makes us lonely, is bad for us and is completely unreliable giving us strong reason to just delete our accounts.

However, today I’ll take it one step further and posit that parts of Facebook make us, both individuals and groups, terribly dishonest.

#Selfies — a selfie alone isn’t harmful but the insidiousness of an entire album of selfies taken daily, speaks volumes about our culture.

No longer are we satisfied with merely stimulating responses from our peers through sharing and updating instead we’ve graduated to evoking an anticipated response.

It seems we are now creating prototypes of ourselves checking with each picture snap that the lighting, background and costumery all depict the theme in life we’ve chosen to present us in our best light; we are our own social media analyst keenly aware of the best content, caption, and time to post.

And while there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting to look one’s best and to feel affirmed in it, I believe we’ve traded this very  normal human desire in for a more gluttonous self-absorption — so hungry are we now, that we require others to join in on the gorging — and this my friend is very wrong.

For The Leader That Has Done Everything

It’s not time to stop.

Many a leader gets to the top of their game and they do something terrible… they stop, they sit down to enjoy the view and they never get up again.

Nothing kills success like success.

Have you reached your goals? Are you financially successful? But do you feel as though you are dying inside, stuck in the doldrums without any wind in your sails?

It’s time to give back, a new adventure awaits — start a blog (contact us) and share what you have learned in 2014.

Blog Writing Is The New 9 to 5 – So Act Like It.

Contrary to popular imagery, not all professional blog writers are sitting at home in pj’s writing to the tune of “personal opinion’.

In fact, we are just like 9 to 5ers in many ways: we have schedules, projects, deadlines, and meetings.

We set business goals and use research and analysis to measure our success along with the rest of the formal workforce.

We’re not sellers, marketers or product pushers — in fact we abhor those descriptors because they simply miss the mark.

Instead, we foster relationship while facilitating constructive industry driven conversation, we offer measured perspective and give away as much as we possibly can in knowledge and expertise.

We are in many ways a modern day encyclopedia offering an all around education for the masses, one that is convenient, accessible and informed.

Professional blog writing is not for the faint hearted and it is certainly not an appropriate medium for indoctrination; next time you go to write, remember others are counting on you for your professional, reliable, proven word and nothing less.

Don’t Make This Mistake In Business

“If you build it, they will come” is a misquote originally derived from the line “if you build it, he will come” delivered in the 1989 American film,  Field of Dreams.

This misquote is often used to fuel the launch of online businesses and entrepreneurial endeavors; much like its origin, this quote AND its sentiment are a complete fallacy.

No brand can stand alone in the internet marketing world.

This my friends, is a mistake that I find all too common with business people who carry a sense of entitlement, both in mindset and age.

A brand when being built, must be done so not just to air ones cleverness but it must facilitate connection, identity and foster relationship with its audience — without these pieces, don’t expect that “they” or anyone else for that matter “will come”.

Your business needs people in order to stand; this requires that YOU be a person invested in the men and women of your niche sowing your time, expertise and sincere interest.

The internet business world is ALWAYS about relationship and never just about your empire,  and if this is not something you’re not ready to commit to, perhaps a different medium may be more your speed?

The Top 3 Lies Women In Business Believe

I have to know it all, NOW.

I have to have it all, NOW.

If I don’t do it like _______, I’ll NEVER succeed!!!

These three lies infect the lives of women at an alarming rate, rending many of us imbalanced, ineffective and incapable of “keeping up”, and for what?

Women in business are NOT a monolithic group; varied are our status, pay scale, industry, family makeup and educational background to name a few.

Because of this, it is absolutely ludicrous to expect success from a generic “how to” business plan alone — you see, success is largely in who you are, not what you do.

Try this:

Seek out a woman of success as you define it, establish relationship, don’t study what she’s done, instead, examine who she is…you’ll see her integrity far outweighs her strategy for success.
