Profit and Loss Statement

There’s no point in having a business if it isn’t profitable. While in the beginning stages you may not be making a profit in order to get off the ground, eventually profitability needs to become a focus. I know because it’s a lesson I’ve learned the hard way. That’s why one of my main goals for […]

business savings tips

I recently had a discussion with someone who felt very uncomfortable with earning money from their skillset. In their minds, sales seemed slimy and in contrast to running a business with integrity. Unfortunately, this is very common among individuals. Due to a few bad apples in the business world, it’s easy to assume that being […]

Client Contracts

As a business coach, one of the complaints I hear most from clients is how they keep dealing with dud prospects. These are people who can’t pay them, aren’t serious about working together and waste their time. I get it. I’ve been there. That is until I started setting up systems in my marketing process […]

After all, if I don’t run my business, who will? Additionally, I recently realized I still have holes in my motivation. After […]

goals behind fitness

Each year around this time, my team and I discuss business objectives for the coming year. The way I personally like to do it is to pick a theme for the following 12 months. This theme is usually centered around a big project or idea that needs to get done. By setting the objective early […]

As my business grows, I find myself receiving more random requests for joint collaborations. While there was a time that I would have jumped on every collaboration that comes my way, I’ve now become far more discerning about it. In fact, in the last couple of days alone I’ve received four requests for joint collaborations. […]
