Do they have a secret that you do not? I don't think so. In this episode, let's talk about how to, finally, make your profit LEAP.

Stop Boiling Like A Frog
I have endured years of known pain at different times in my life and career. In retrospect, you can barely perceive the protracted and subtle descent. After years of slogging through the recession of the 90's, I needed someone else to tell me that I had lost my smile to even recognize how resigned I had become to the struggle. It had simply become my normal. It never should have been.In this episode, we'll uncover how we all can get stuck with known pain and, more importantly, how to snap out of it.

F*ck Your Pride
Why would a smart business owner, CEO or board of directors not ask for help when the likely alternative is their business ceases to exist? Why would an entrepreneur choose to put their savings, home and family at financial risk when simply calling someone with the right expertise could change such an important outcome? Having worked with dozens of businesses in the past decade (and made the tough call for help for my own business before that) there is one word that keeps coming up.Pride.Your pride is stopping you from building a business that makes you proud. I am going to tell you what you can do with your pride.

Gag Me With Your BHAG
Business is supposed to be fun to run. This core truth has been the through-line for most of my work and career. It has stayed true through the ups and downs of businesses I have owned or lead and for the many clients I have worked with.Just like in a marriage or relationship that has lost its fire, not feeling the love for your business anymore impacts your life, leads to flailing strategic decisions and creates a stifling resignation to just endure.So HOW can you make business more fun, more fulfilling and capable of bringing you joy? It is not enough to just want it or lament not having fun. What can you actually do?I am glad you asked. In this episode, I will answer those questions and more.

Let's discuss it all, shall we?
