    It's Your Business: Want Results? Stop Planning Start Deciding

    It's Your Business: Want Results? Stop Planning Start Deciding

    Forget perfect plans and endless strategizing. The secret to achievement is found by taking action, learning from mistakes, and making choices that align with your biggest goals. 
     
    Ultimately, decision-making is a framework for action. Even imperfect choices create an environment that fosters gathering more information to hone in on what you don't know, what you assumed … or even those actions that turned out to be great. Making decisions is a skill and a craft that requires stamina, energy, and commitment. Every action affirms that you are moving away from or toward the goal.
     
    This "It's Your Business" program features audience questions and real experiences from Christy Maxfield, President and CEO at Purpose First Advisors; Quentin Ortega, Founder and Lead Consultant at QCO Consulting; and your host, Jess Dewell, Managing Partner at Red Direction. 
     
    You will hear how to stay competitive, that decisions don't have to last forever, how to measure the results of your decisions, and how making decisions is crucial to your success.

This will help you keep learning and growing while working strategically on your business.

    Commit to Yourself: Defy Norms to Reach Your Goals

    Stop trying to fit into a box that was never meant for you. This conversation is built on owning your truth and creating a life that resonates with your core values. The secret to unstoppable self-discipline? It might start with the promises you make to others.
     
    Your aspirations might require a reality check to prevent them from fading away, and to ensure you don't inadvertently drift further from them. It's simple to follow a plan, build habits, and even achieve, but if you're not truly living in the process, it's likely that you're trapped in norms that don't benefit you.
     
    This program is designed to help you claim your commitment to yourself and others. It includes giving up the good, learning the nuances of time and energy management, and developing the skills necessary to succeed. The cumulative benefit is reaching your biggest long-term goals while staying true to yourself along the way.
     
    Jess Dewell talks with Bolanle Williams-Olley, CFO of Mancini Duffy, about the importance of defying 'norms' to reach one's goals and why it is BOLD to defy norms.
