Women in the Business Arena™ EP 61: How To Know When You Are Over-Owning or Under-Owning Your Responsibility
“Where are we over-owning or under-owning with our clients?” In this week’s episode, we are dipping a toe into a discussion that is much bigger than any one podcast episode. This is a topic that we face in our businesses every day, especially as women. For many of us, there is a challenge of either over-owning or under-owning our responsibility and this has a dramatic effect on our business. We’re constantly having to balance the amount of responsibility that we take on from others and for ourselves.
“There’s an incongruence between what we say we want and what we put our money behind” In this week’s episode, we’re asking a question that we don’t really know the answer to, but is a conversation that we need to be having in the business arena. How can we run a successful business if we’re not aligning our tactics with who we are as women? This incongruence can cause us to feel stuck, and keeps us from creating the business and the life we really want.
Women in the Business Arena™ EP 59: How Do You Discern Between a Good Fit and a Bad Fit When it Comes to People in Your Business?
“Being in business is about being with people” In today’s episode, Sonya and Laura shed light on what it means to find the “right” people to work with in your business. Whether you are hiring staff, finding contractors, or looking for new clients, you need to be able to discern when someone is a good fit or a bad fit for your business. Ignoring the early warning signs causes more trouble than just saying “no” in the first place. We have to learn to listen to our gut when something feels off.
“A bigger vision pulls you up and makes you to think differently” In today’s episode we are talking about vision, but from a deeper viewpoint. It is not enough to just think of a vision, we have to embody our vision, feel it and allow space for it to become real. In business, we are always busy doing. We spend so much time in action we often lose sense of our big vision and our actions take us way off track. The more you embody the vision, the more you focus your mind and actions. You actually have to do less to accomplish more.
