What's In a Name? Part Two
On day 1656, it’s part two of “What’s in a name?” We dig into the “Generous” in Generous Change. It’s amazing how many things one little word can mean. For us, generosity lies in time, attention and opinion. What does “generous” mean to you? When do you feel most generous? When have other people been generous to you? For bonus points, what’s the opposite of generosity for you?
What's In a Name? Part One
More than 1627 days ago, we chose to name our business (and our podcast!) Generous Change. Coming up with a name was crazy hard! So, we're reflecting on its meaning, how much Generous Change represents not only our business, but who we are and who we want to be for the amazing people we serve. In this episode, we're tackling the "Change" in Generous Change. Turns out, there's a whole lot in a name!
Leaders eat last. Lead from every seat. Leaders are made not born.
When it comes to leadership, you can find plenty of corporate jargon and coffee mug slogans. What we forget is a leader is someone people follow - for good or for bad. On day 1607 of entrepreneurship, we're digging into what leadership really means to us and the kind of leadership we hope for you (hint...the good kind).
It's Been A Minute - 048
We're still here! But it's been a minute...or six months...since our last podcast. On day 1593 of entrepreneurship we're going behind-the-scenes on where we've been, lessons we've learned, painful personal growth 2022 has forced us into, and where we're goin' if the universe allows it. There's some expletives, hard topics and a few tears, so buckle up.
