    FULL SHOW TRANSCRIPTION
    Speaker 1:
    Hey, what is up everyone? First and foremost, I want to say you are freaking awesome. Thank you. As my new book, I'm holding it up here to those of you that are watching on the video, hit the freaking bestsellers list again. 16 Reasons Why Your Business Sucks, how to be freaking awesome at every level of your business leadership profits and build your own dream team. Thank you so much for everything. This has been my life's work. 14 plus years of building my business from the ground up with my team, with my employees, how I did it, how you can do it at every single freaking level. Thank you. Keep sharing it and welcome back to Elevating Beyond with a two word mission statement, change lives, and I'm going to be going into something actually last week I was talking about under pressure and man, that I love you all so much, because this has been such a season for all of us across the world.

    Speaker 1:
    And especially as business owners, as leaders at a whole other level, these challenges we've been facing and all this uncertainty. And I talked about so much of that and more on the last episode, I love what all of you are writing me about it. I'm actually probably going to even do a part two from it, but today, listen, I'm talking about something that's important because we hear, I'm holding up right here, even from the book, you can see accountability in action and this whole self-awareness thing, but what does this really really mean? Besides these trending words, when it really applies to your business, to your leadership, to you as the owner, to really hold yourself accountable and to be able to take the right type of what wouldn't just be criticism, but actual wisdom on areas you need to change and grow, versus what would just be negative criticism that's not helpful and useless.

    Speaker 1:
    And if your ego is too big where you're like, "No one can ever tell me what to do. I'm the only one that knows everything." And you're not able to get that feedback even when it's not what you want to hear, whether it's from team members and from your freaking customers, who you should be super serving by the way, always, then you'll never go to the next level. So, Oh, I'm popping everyone in here live too from ... See what's up, everyone on Instagram popping all of you in live and I'm giving people a chance here too. As we have our amazing four million listeners, viewers all around the world, to be able to, if I did this the right way, to come in on Instagram live, I might even pull some of you up and allow you to share live on the air as we're talking about, what are some of the biggest struggles and challenges that you're facing in this moment in your business or that you've been facing for years?

    Speaker 1:
    And not just fluffy fake stuff, actual in the trenches specific problems. And I'll pull you in, you can type it in, I can pull you on live and we'll talk it out and we'll address them because I tell you everything about it, everything about my book, all that we're doing, it's f
