Interview with Kim Doyal: On Authenticity, Showing Up and Fun
I recently (finally) met Kim Doyal and felt instantly like I had missed out on meeting and being her friend sooner. She's filled with incredible wisdom and has such an amazing perspective on this thing called entrepreneurship (as well as life!). Most of this conversation centers on her attitude and approach, particularly starting with having fun ... being more of the authentic you .... and showing up, consistently. Listen in and be better for doing so. Learn more about Kim here: https://kimdoyal.com/ https://contentcreatorsplanner.com/ https://twitter.com/kimdoyal

Entrepreneurs: How to Decide What's Next
One of the great questions we ask ourselves but can often haunt us as entrepreneur is: What's Next? Asking "What's Next?" is a great exercise to keep us focused on protecting and growing our businesses. For me, it was about staying relevant in the market and to our customers well into the future. And taking the right steps to ensure our future. I did this "What's Next?" exercise often .... here's how it'd go: FIRST, I started with assessing our current situation. Where are we now? Our customers, our products, our competition? SECOND, I started pushing Fast Forward on it all .... and asked, "Where is it all going next?" To help look into the future ... I'd take those buckets ... customers, products, competition, technology, industry, etc ... and would go ... what would 10X better be for all of it? What's the natural progression of all of this? And I'd play it all out. Hockey great Wayne Gretzky is often quoted that his key to success was that he "skated to where the puck would be, not to where it had been." And from this exercise typically I could see clearer for where the puck was going .... and I'd have 1-3 clear priorities to focus on steer our way forward and "create our future."

Exercise: How Could You Charge $1500 an Hour for What You Do
As a starting again entrepreneur, I've been asking myself this question: How could I charge (or get paid) $1,500 an hour for what I do? Two questions for exploration follow that: * Who do I need to become to charge that? Particularly my skillsets, approach, even messaging * What are the results and outcomes I could offer that would be truly transformational at the end of that hour? These questions have been helping me lay out a plan to level up what I'm doing, how I'm talking about it ... but more importantly the transformations I'm offering my clients.

The One Mindset For Improving My Mental Health ... Don't Go It Alone
Never, ever, ever go it alone. It's a message I have to remind myself of every day. To seek, ask for, and receive help and support. And then the three essentials I rely on for supporting my mental health are: 1. Counselor on speed dial -- just like I have a primary care who I can call to get help when I'm physically sick and for checkups, I also have a counselor to work on my below the iceberg issues. And the science is so strong and indisputable on these two practices that I've woven into my life and am seeking to embed them even deeper: 2. Exercise -- I do run-walks aka rualks and also pushups. Exercise is the "mood booster and stress buster." I'm seeking to amp up my intensity minutes daily now. But I run in 100 degree heat, not because I'm grinding ... but because I want to feel better. And I always do when I exercise. 3. Mindfulness -- I don't do this daily but I want to because I know scientifically and practically the benefits in my life of it, in so many areas.

Your Customers Are Buying a Pill
The pill is a shortcut to answer your customer's problems. They don't look at your products and services with your fancy names and cute logos you've given them because they care about that .... they care if your "pill" is the answer to their needs and problems.
