Smart Planning For Entrepreneurs: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You
I'm involved in several groups related to entrepreneurship, and I gotta say, it is one of my favorite things in the world. I absolutely love being around high-energy, achieving people - it totally feeds my personal energy.
In March 2016 I was challenged to do a talk, limited to 10 minutes, that would bring either $250,000 value or $250,000 savings to a group of entrepreneurs at the Genius Network. These days, I'm not easily intimidated, but I really was for this one! Somehow I got my big girl panties on and made it happen. :) The good news? It was well received.
In this video, I talk about how I was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare lung disease, and ultimately had to spend an extended time in the hospital, and then recovering. This could have been a business disaster, but it wasn't...in fact, we went on that year to make more money than ever.
This wasn't by accident. It takes smart planning.
This video, which captured my talk, discusses one of the things that I really did that was RIGHT. Below the video, I talk about how to make it possible.
POA's For Entrepreneurs: What You Think You Know, But Really Don't
The Biggest Question I Received
After this presentation, I've been approached by hundreds of entrepreneurs, asking: how do I figure out who is best to run my business, if it isn't my spouse? Who should I trust?
One of the best ways to take care of this is to ensure that you have a dynamic, catalytic team that can make things happen for you...even if you're not there.
Getting a really good team together is HARD.
The Elements of A Great Team
To begin to discover what makes a team that can ensure YOUR business remains running - profitably- even if you're not there (it doesn't have to be due to sickness...there's this thing called a VACATION you may have forgotten about???).
