Business Owners and Leaders – Set your Radar

Business Owners and Leaders – Set your Radar

It made me reflect on how often, as business owners and leaders, we choose to overlook making time to get clear on where we are going on our journey. Without a clear target or ultimate outcome, we make it tough to know what we are striving for and whether we are on track.

Value Yourself

Value Yourself

Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.- M. Scott Peck. I had a fear of failure and a need to make sure everything was perfect before taking something on. I had to know I wouldn't fail before I would say yes...

We Always Have the Freedom to Choose

We Always Have the Freedom to Choose

We always have the freedom to choose... whether it be to do the same thing or do something different, choosing how we react to situations.
