Do you have a business tip or tool that has helped you in your business? Do you have a quote to share and inspire other members?
Tony Robbins says, “Where focus goes, energy flows”. I stay focused on the mission of my work which is to help couples feel secure in their love on a daily basis. As a business owner, I am constantly reflecting on how I can lead a team to help me do this in a way that streamlines our internal systems, takes good care of my team and delivers the highest quality service to our clients.
What is your go to business, mindset or productivity book that has helped you in your life and business that you’d like to share?
Running a business is both professional and personal. Lately, my favorite book has been The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. This book has helped me push past fears of visibility and leadership. In fact, applying her 5 second rule helped me exercise the courage to be the keynote speaker for NAWBO’s Fall Expo in 2017!
