Got a Crystal Ball to See into Your Future? If not, get one!September 28, 2009
As any true entrepreneur knows, no matter what your goals are, you’ve got to be committed for the long haul. Even if your three-year plan is to build a business you can sell, without TENACITY, you simply won’t have the ability to balance and stive through the storms that may (and probably will) hit you.
As I’ve said in this blog many times, be sure that your business is focused on something you really love doing, because you’re going to be doing it A LOT. You’ll be doing it 24 / 7 some weeks. Now if you find that you’re doing it 24 / 7 EVERY week, you’ve made some critical errors — AND you won’t be able to strive through that nightmare, believe me.
As a serial entrepreneur and mentor, I’ve seen WAY too many people either not have the tenacity and balance to get through those 24 / 7 periods — or the opposite, grow so USED to those times that they forget that their business is supposed to work FOR THEM, not the other way around.
Coaching you guys through those dilemmas (and others — like being underfunded or not having clearly defined needle movers) … well, that’s more than my mission. It’s my personal passion. So you can see that I’m not saying, “Take my advice, I’m not using it.” I’m LIVING my advice. I chose a business that not only fit my expertise to a T, it embodies a personal love affair. I have created a number of ways to support companies. September’s private mentoring weekend just finished, and every single one of those CEO’s is definitely on the road to some FIERCE needle movers.
“Thank-you for your fantastic leadership. I have just returned home robust with direction and focus. These four days were nurturing and inspiring for me. Loads of work to do.”
CEO, Kyra Consulting Inc.
“The Hot Seats, interaction with the other participants, and Christine’s energy and advice were exceptional! I wouldn’t change a thing!”
CEO, Centre for Conflict Resolution
“I liked the interactivity within the group, loved the curriculum, loved the openness and the flow of good energy and support with my peers. I have learned more in one weekend with Christine than I did at the other business events I attended over the past years!”
CEO, Universal Benefit Plans, Inc.
If you’re ready for an intensive MRI of your business (that’s MENTORING, RESPONSE, INTERVENTION), you can go to http://www.mightyventures.com/bai and SAVE your spot for the next weekend.
If you’re at a transitional point for your business and need more than that, you can also book personal mentoring time with me.
To your success, Christine Comaford
