Values of Successful Businesses

Every single person who’s ever started a business of any kind has done so with a common goal: to be successful. But what does it take to achieve that goal? Why do some businesses knock it out of the park, while others never quite make it off the ground? We believe it’s all about establishing […]

We’ve all got our own versions of “success.” You may dream of starting a successful business, while someone else is invested in learning how to bake the perfect apple pie.

We all want to represent ourselves and our businesses as positively and professionally as possible. Oftentimes, we only get one chance to make a great impression on our audience. It’s important that we make the most of it. But with the many dynamic “faces” we wear each day, it can be challenging to keep them […]

Aligning Team and Individual Goals

Picture this: You’re playing in a basketball game. You have a great game and score lots of points—but unfortunately, your team still loses. You’re excited about your individual performance, but the fact is, the group lost.    Sure, we’re not all basketball players. But we are all part of important teams in our lives: family, friend groups, and so on. And while individual goals are certainly important, what’s more important is how achieving those goals contributes to the group’s success. Let’s talk about how you […]

Feeling stagnant? You’re not alone. Even the most successful people feel stuck sometimes. However, what sets them apart from the rest is their ability to lean into a growth mindset. What is a growth mindset, you ask? Exactly what it sounds like! It’s the idea that the skills you have (or don’t have) aren’t permanent, and your abilities […]

Wondering where the year went? So are we! We’re officially down to about 2 months left in 2021. And at this point in the year, we all have a decision to make: Option #1: Coast through the rest of the year and wait to get re-motivated during New Year’s Resolution time. Option #2: Focus on finishing the year strong! We hope you choose the […]

Three Questions to Find Your Unique Strengths

We’re all good at something. Actually, we’re all good at multiple things. But asking someone for a list of their strengths can feel like you’re pulling teeth. On the flip side, if you were to ask someone to name some of their weaknesses, it’s likely they could rattle them off with no problem. “I’m terrible […]

Risk-taking can be scary, and everyone’s idea of “risk” looks a little bit different. Risk means that whatever the situation might be, there’s a chance for danger or loss; it means you have something to lose! Now, a risk doesn’t have to be something massive like cliff jumping off a waterfall in Bali, or swimming with hammerhead sharks in the open ocean. There can be risks […]
