What Does Success Mean to You?

Your business needs to be just that – yours. Even if no textbook or ultra super star “coach” proclaims it a winner. The only winner is the business design that has been tailored to you.

What Does Success Mean to You?

What is that energizing, personal, lightning bolt vision that keeps you driving forward in whatever you do?

How much is your definition wound up with the traditional vision of success as money, esteem, stuff and things?

None of these are wrong, or bad, by the way, I just want them to be yours.

See, what happens when you get muddy about what success means to you, and only you, your path becomes not really yours, and the investments required (of time, emotion, energy, etc.) to get you there only half show up.

For me, success is a blend of:

consistent growth in income
complete ownership of my time
happy, healthy kids
daily opportunities for calm
daily activity and movement
a variety of interests
critical thought and reflection
positive impact

I’m glad I know these things. But just knowing them isn’t enough. I have worked very hard to intentionally build a business and a life such that they can all be present at any given time.

Maybe that’s not what you would prefer. Maybe we share some of that vision, but you’d change up this or that. Great. Then your blueprint is going to look different.

But imagine if I used your blueprint? Maybe you don’t feel so strongly about owning your time? Well, already I’d have friction in my life within minutes of trying on your model.

So why are so many business owners trying to use someone else’s business model?

Your business needs to be just that – yours. Even if no textbook or ultra super star “coach” proclaims it a winner. The only winner is the business design that has been tailored to you.

Think about where you currently have friction in your business.

What part is at odds with what you really want/believe/feel? What part feels just way too damn hard?

I design multiple businesses a week. Sometimes even a day! I know firsthand the power of alignment.

Still feeling icky in your business?
