Do you intentionally take time off from your business to recharge? Are you scheduling Freedom Days so that you have bandwidth to catch up and work on your inspiration projects?

You are working so hard, growing the reach of your business, trying to get that next offering just right so your ideal clients sign up quickly.

But no matter what you do, who you learn from and how hard you work, you just can’t seem to break the financial success code. If you feel like you keep hitting your financial limiter, you might start second guessing your business, wondering if you’ll ever become a success.

On episode 140 of Amplify Your Success podcast discover why you can be doing all the right thing and still be cash flow challenged! The answer lies in three super common hidden profit drains (and guess what – every entrepreneur struggles with at least one of them!)

Do you know what your true North is?

Think of it like your own internal compass for decision making. When you have clarity on your core values, you’ll know exactly what “True North” is for you so you stay on course.

Tony Robbins says that core values "are like a compass that directs your life". Values motivate and demotivate, and they justify behavior.

Core values are intrinsic to your soul and when you align every decision and business growth action around them, you’ll accelerate growth. But when an entrepreneur gets off track from their values, they’ll put the brakes on and procrastinate without realizing why.

On episode 139 of Amplify Your Success podcast, I’d like to coach you through a high performance hack to help you turn your rocket boosters back on – by finding YOUR core values.

Key Takeaways

  • How to clarify your own core values
  • Why values are your compass when it comes to making growth decisions
  • The difference between values and priorities
  • What to do when your values are in conflict and you are procrastinating or feel trapped

Did you know that thinking more like a CEO can actually catapult your business and be a catalyst for big growth spurts? Being a CEO (or what I like to call the Chief Entrepreneurial Officer) is a role we have to fill as a business grows.

But a lot of entrepreneurs don’t really like the idea of being CEO. In their minds they believe that they’ll no longer get to do the activities that bring them joy and satisfaction. So they avoid the CEO type activities, and plunge their fast-growing small business into chaos, uncertainty or stagnation.

On episode 138 of Amplify Your Success podcast, I’d like to make becoming CEO a no-brainer and put some fun back into the role. Or at least, make it so simple that you can tackle those tasks fast so you always have plenty of time to do what you enjoy most. And you never know, you might just realize you were born to be a BOSS!

Key Takeaways

  • The two truths and five myths about being CEO as you take your business to the next level
  • Why communication is a CRITICAL skill (and how it can implode your business and demoralize your team when it’s missing.)
  • How to Strategically Plan like a boss but keep it super simple
  • Why the CEO must nurture and cultivate relationships with other Center’s of Influence
  • A commonly under-developed muscle for most entrepreneurs as they emerge into the CEO role.
