Climbing Your Entrepreneurial Mountain

I shot this one on Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean – and I got to thinking about this dirty little secret that all entrepreneurs have…

We try to make it look we’ve got it all figured out… but the reality is that we’re just making it up as we go along. And sometimes we get stuck along the way… and that’s what this video is all about.

How To Know When You’re Ready

by on Apr 30 2016

Are you “getting ready to get ready to get started”? How will you know when you’re finally ready to take action? Here are your answers…

SUMMARY

Have you been “getting ready to get ready”? Have you been all preparation and no action?

Making big moves in life, like starting a business or launching a product, can be intimidating. Most of us want to wait until the time is right.

But how do you know when that time has come… when you’re ready to take that giant step forward? Just keep these eight thoughts in mind…

1. Procrastination is a killer. A telltale sign is putting too much effort into getting ready to get ready. Everything has to be just so… even perfect.

2. No one can ever be that ready. Entrepreneurs at the highest level have never waited to be ready. They simply made a decision to move forward because that’s what’s always required.

3. People procrastinate in the hope that their confidence level will increase the more they get ready. But confidence comes after you make the decision, move forward, and enjoy some success. So waiting for confidence means you’ll never be ready.

4. If you’re asking, “Am I ready?” 99% of the time, you are ready.

5. Making a commitment takes courage. And yes, that word can make you feel a little uncomfortable. But stepping out of your comfort zone is the price every entrepreneur has paid for their future success. So you won’t be the first to do this.

6. Everything is “figureoutable.” If you have a vision of where you want to go, and muster up the required courage, you can figure out how to make your commitment stick.

7. Share your commitment with your target audience. What a great incentive to move forward. And be sure to share your commitment with someone who you know will be supportive of your decision.

8. Finally, remember these “Four Cs”: Courage (leads to) Commitment (leads to) Capability (leads to) Confidence.

Playing Hard With Richard Branson

by on Apr 24 2016

I’ve found that one of the best ways to get to know someone is to play with them… to compete with them. I just spent four days playing tennis with Richard Branson, this is what I learned about him (and from him)…

SUMMARY

Entrepreneurs and business owners rarely think twice about putting in the “overtime” to grow their businesses. But if you’re going to continue to perform at a peak level over the long haul, you need to take care of yourself. In my opinion, if you’re going to work hard, you need to play hard, too. Here’s a quick 5-step approach to fun and play:

1. Make personal health your #1 priority. Without it, you can’t build a business.

2. Schedule time for physical activity as part of your daily routine.

3. Choose an activity you enjoy… so you actually look forward to doing it. Positive addictions are good for you.

4. Always look for things to physically train for… events, big adventures, races, etc.

5. When you consider your business goals, consider the impact on the rest of your life. Don’t give up your health, lifestyle, or relationships to advance your business.
