    Must Have Skills for Success in Business Part 1- Stay Teachable

    This is part 1 of 7 - although if I'm being completely transparent, it might end up being more than 7. When I was writing down these skills, I started with 6, and more kept coming. There are a few things that business owners have mastered - and it's not necessarily what you think.

    YES, you should absolutely master your craft and know what you do inside and out. YES, it's important to know and follow all local laws to make sure that your business is legit. But SO MUCH of being successful in business has everything to do with YOU. Mastering the inner work, your mindset, overcoming your own head trash and blocks that might be stopping you.

    Anyone can download a blueprint, a step by step template, but two very different people can have the same exact blueprint, and yet have very different results - why is that?

    Today we are going to talk about what it means to stay TEACHABLE and to keep learning. This is rooted in some nasty trends that I'm seeing in my own industry, as well as others - namely, the ego that gets in the way when someone is offering some help, particularly help that was requested.

    Systems, Boundaries & VIP Days With Jordan Gill {Ep 088}

    Systems, Boundaries & VIP Days With Jordan Gill {Ep 088}

    Systems, Boundaries & VIP Days with Jordan Gill {Ep 088}

    Full shownotes: https://www.businessstraightup.com/088

    As a service based business owner, we are inextricably tied to our businesses. Even when we have help in the form of a team, we are still tied to providing a service in order to be paid. Jordan Gill helps doers, service providers and CEO's to add another revenue stream with VIP Days. Jordan has a system that allows solopreneurs to create and sell larger offers so they can work less and live more.

    I'm absolutely guessing here, but if I had to estimate, I would say that 95% of my students go into business for themselves because they want FREEDOM in their lives. Embracing VIP days, boundaries and systems so that certain tasks can be automated takes some work up front, but is absolutely well worth it in the end!

    Listen in as Jordan and I talk about people pleasing, the mind trash that we all have in some form or another, and what VIP days can look like in YOUR business.

    Time, Energy & Intuition As A Business Owner With Carla Reeves {Ep 087}

    Time, Energy & Intuition As A Business Owner With Carla Reeves {Ep 087}

    Do you actively protect your time and energy? Not just in your business, but in your LIFE. Do you listen to those little nudges, and your intuition as a business owner?

    I have been in business technically for 16 years now and I can tell you with 100% honesty - I'm JUST learning this y'all.

    Our time and energy are SO valuable and yet we waste them consistently. I say this with love, because it is definitely something that I struggle with too. And listening to my gut is a lesson that I've had to learn over and over again - and usually those lessons aren't easy ones. Anyone else raising their hand when thinking of listening to that intuition as a business owner in dealing with difficult people? No? Just me? I didn't think so...

    Today's guest is Carla Reeves - a wife, mom of two boys, coach, consultant, mentor and passionate about squeezing the juice out of everyday life - her life's work is working with people who are ambitious for a different kind of more!

    Carla is an amazing coach, and I absolutely love this discussion! It's NEVER too late to start learning to listen to your intuition as a business owner, and to protect your time and energy fiercely.

    Listen in, then head to the community at https://www.businessstraightup.com/community to let me know your biggest takeaways! If Instagram is your preference, take a screenshot and tag me on IG @businessstraightup - I would love to know your aha moments!
