This year has been a bit of a rollercoaster, hasn’t it?
Looming recession. Political unrest. War. Oh, and we’re stilling handling a pandemic, right?!
Don’t get me wrong… I’m not going all ‘Debbie Downer’ on you. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
PROGRESSION - NOT RECESSION
I’m writing to you today to tell you that we should be thinking about progression – not recession.
Here’s why… For instance, did you know that 57% of the companies on the Fortune 500 list were founded during an economic downturn? In addition, 92% of patents are filed during, or just after a downturn.
The fact is… we’re here right now – 2022 is one of these moments.
The shake-up of Covid has led to consumers driving new agendas, businesses embracing new sales, marketing and operational models, and new leaders are rising up.
Chances are we’re looking at more change in the next 10 years than in the last 100 years.
And… 9/10 times change is a good thing.
Looking ahead isn’t easy, especially in todays fast paced world. However, a way forward, complete with buckets of new opportunities to grow better businesses, better memories – heck, a better world – is just around the corner.
We need leaders to see and shape this future, and help us get there.
I’m doing my part – and I hope you’ll do yours.
YOU CAN’T HAVE IT ALL - BUT, YOU KINDA CAN!
We’ve all heard of the “you can’t have it all” myth. I’m here to bust that myth.
Actually, you can have it all. You just can’t have it all at the exact same time!
Zig Ziglar said “You can have everything you want in life, as long as you help as many other people as possible get what they want!”. The guy was right. I mean, it’s scary how true that is.
The more people I help build profitable businesses around their expertise, the more of my personal goals and dreams come true. But, they come to fruition in a ‘drip by drip’ cycle… not all at once, and I’m okay with that.
START PLANNING 2023 - NOW!!!
Q4 of every year is a time on my schedule that I’m busier than pretty much any other time throughout the year. Why? Because while others are starting to take it easy, I’m putting my foot down on the gas even further.
In the next 60-days, I am holding a 2-day retreat for my Round Table Mastermind, I’m opening the doors to the Youpreneur Incubator for our annual launch and I’m hosting another one of our popular 1-Day Business Breakthrough events.
Oh, and as the proud father to four kids… getting ready for Christmas!
If you’ve not done so already start reflecting on what you need to do to build a business around your life – not the other way around.
If you’re tired and burned out from coming out of the ‘Covid Cocoon’, hit the pause button and start planning what you need to do to go from burned out business owner, to an elevated entrepreneur, going into 2023.
I’m here to help you. Promise. But, you’ve gotta help yourself, too.
