Save It For The Meeting

Have you ever walked into your office and been jumped by the bookkeeper? "What's this check for?  I can't read your writing.  And Jimmy hasn't filled out his time card all week."  When you aren't in financial manager mode, these questions can feel like an ambush. Have you ever interrupted your bookkeeper with [...]

Procedures UN-Complicated: Get Your Operating Manuals IN

“She ROCKED my business.  She helped me take my company from deep in debt to humongous profits.  What could you learn from the lady who gets paid ridiculous money to turn companies around?  What could you learn from the lady who took a plumbing service company start up from Zero to $40 million in franchisee [...]

Projects UN-Complicated: Getting Stuff Done

It involves thought and journaling and meditation. Information, well, that's usually available isn't it?  Leadership involves shifting through information and deciding which voices to heed and [...]

Think Twice – Speak Once

If you can't say something nice.... Well, you can say something nice. You can edit your thoughts before they take flight. You can also say nothing at all. Or you can think nothing at all.

How to UN-Complicate Communication!

We have 24 hours a day to create the life and business we want. While we can't manufacture more time, we can revisit how we spend it.  In my companies (and yours?) we can leverage time by streamlining communication.

Must You LOVE Your Business?

In previous conversations, I may have left you with a misunderstanding.  Allow me to clear it up. If there is something that you just must do, then you do it.  However, it does not have to make money. It may be that your art or gift or skill can be delivered in such a way [...]
