When you’ve got way too many things that must get done and not enough time, you’ll appreciate having a new way to get everything done. It’s beyond time management, it’s a way to stretch time to match your needs so you can stop feeling overwhelmed in your small business.


Key Takeaways

  • I’m taking you behind the scenes of my recent launch with what was really going on (talk about overwhelming!)
  • I’ll explain a very different type of time management technique, called Liquid Time, and how it’s a revolutionary approach to getting more done.
  • A key factor in this technique is your self-talk and mindset for stretching time. I’ll teach you a simple shift in your thinking to activate Liquid Time.
  • Then I’ll guide you through the four steps to activate Liquid Time. Each step is super simple and really fast. Once you learn the system, it will become second nature.
  • If you like visualizations to keep your mind focused, you’ll like step #4 which includes a visual guide to teaching your mind how to activate your flow state.

As an entrepreneur, becoming a leader can be a real pivot in your ability to take your business to new levels. In this week’s episode, I talk about what it means to awaken leadership – from how it can improve decisions and profits to how it can leave a lasting impact on the world.


Key Takeaways

2:10 Leadership changes the game for business owners. It’s not just a title but a mindset and a way of guiding your business to new levels.

3:02 The five signs it’s time to awaken leadership in your role as entrepreneur and business owner. The first sign has to do with how you impact others in your work and I share a few of the ways you may be leading – and not even know it.

5:51 The second sign could mean you’ve made it to the top of the pinnacle – but what happens when you’ve made it to the top can be a real sign you are ready to emerge as a leader.

8:13 The third sign is embedded in how big your vision really is. If your vision is easy to achieve, chances are you are playing it safe. I talk about what kind of vision will help you cultivate a powerful team.

10:36 In the fourth sign, I share my experience around being comfortable and risk-taking when it comes to stepping into a bold vision. If you’ve ever received resistance from others in your life as you continue to stretch into new levels of success, this sign will feel really familiar to you.

13:19 The fifth sign is what inspires me in my role as a leader in several communities – knowing that inspiring others through authenticity is critical in our role.

A fast growing business can sometimes experience costly breakdowns and unconscious bottlenecks. It happens to every entrepreneur that tries to grow to the next level of success the same way you got to this level.

In this week’s podcast episode I’ll introduce you to the most common growth bottlenecks and how to avoid them so they don’t slow down your progress.

Key Takeaways

1:24 I talk about what growth bottlenecks are and why you can’t see the cost or impact they have on your goals.

3:00 The first bottleneck is a hard one to see for yourself, and I talk about the signs that you might be trying to grow your business to the next level with outdated methods. I also debunk a common growth myth that can lead to imploding your business.

8:02 The second bottleneck is having a struggle mindset, but how it affects your business isn’t obvious. Using your logic mind can actually keep you broke and struggling but there’s a mindset shift that can help you make excellent growth investment decisions.

12:03 I tackle the single biggest thought that kills your future success. It’s rooted in your logic mind and you’ll want to know how to flip this limited mindset quickly.

12:57 Bottleneck three is rooted in your creativity – and you’ll find that your compulsive need to create more and more stuff could be working against your profitability and ability to lead your business into greater impact.

14:14 The next bottleneck comes down to how well you delegate. Often a leader can convince themselves that it’s cheaper or easier to do it yourself. Listen in for crucial advice on how to avoid this costly growth pitfall.

16:18 Another way that bottleneck four surfaces is when you let yourself stay stuck in the weeds solving problems or figuring out how to get everything done.

17:50 The two ways to shift out of bottlenecks to accelerate growth lies in two fundamental actions: a clear bold vision and a decision.

20:00 I share the story of how the founders of InfusionSoft have grown as leaders every time their business expanded.
