    The Let Me Implement Lie

    The Let Me Implement Lie

    Pros don’t do their own plumbing, they hire a professional. They don’t lie to themselves like some business owners seem to be doing. The “let me implement” lie is the story we tell ourselves when things get out of hand with our business and we don’t know how to get new clients and get more income. But the story is based on lies. Yes, you’re smart. Yes, you're capable, but the truth is, you can’t do everything on your own once you reach a certain point. Join Suzanne as she exposes the lies business owners tell themselves every day!
     
    “No one hits their goals by lying to themselves.”
    -Suzanne Evans

    -And more!

    Execution is a B*tch

    Execution is a B*tch

    So many people wait until it's perfect to start. Wrong move. In the execution, you'll realize exactly how to do whatever your goal is. Ditch the fantasy people are selling you about building a business without doing the hard work. Ideas, fantasies, and dreams are great- but they won't build you a business. Execution is a real b*tch. Suzanne cuts the crap and gives you tough love about the un-sexy side of getting the job done, no matter what. 
     
    “If you wait to be right, then you'll never do anything.”
    -Suzanne Evans
     
    In this episode:
    - Why execution is the most powerful thing you can do in your business
    - The one thing it takes to build an empire that none of your gurus or memes are going to tell you
    - What real execution looks like (and why she's wearing overalls!)
    - Why you need to ditch the search for joy-filled work and get real about what it takes to run a business
    - If you want to get ahead, you need to be prepared to do this
