Do you want to build a legacy? Then you've got to make BOLD moves
Jan 12, 2020
If you want something bad enough, you've got to make bold moves!
I don’t know about you, but for me, last week was a week full of BOLD moves.
You know what they say: be careful what you wish for because you just might get it!
Well my friend, BOLD moves is what I asked for. In fact, it’s my word for the year. It is also the action behind my word of the decade, which is LEGACY. You see, I know you can’t build a legacy without making BOLD moves. And as you can see, writing your vision and making it plain helps to bring the dream alive..
Let’s talk about a few of the BOLD moves that happened last week.
First, I was invited to participate in a round table discussion for the Small Business Report on WHUR SiriusXM Channel 141.
The discussion? Transitioning from a lifestyle business to building legacies! No, I absolutely did not pick the topic. The show host invited me in to discuss a very important topic of his and it just happened to fit very nicely with my mission
(happenstance or destiny? I call it destiny).
That discussion was 100% on FIRE! You won’t want to miss it. I won't share too many of the details because I want you to listen in. Stay tuned as it will air on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at noon. I would love for you to send me your thoughts and feedback after you've listened.
My next BOLD move
happened on Wednesday evening when I conducted our January Million Dollar Fireside Chat
with Jennifer Foxworthy inside my Facebook group
We talked everything vetting.
This is an area that far too many small businesses take for granted. They take short cuts in the name of expediency. They compromise their standards to honor the benefit of the doubt. They get left holding the bag because they didn’t do the necessary up front work. They stunt their growth because they spend far too much time cleaning up messes.
Here’s a few things that came out of that discussion.
Budget and quality rarely, if ever, live in the same zone.
You must take emotions out of your business decisions.
Be like the big boys and write out your requirements and clearly outline what you want!
Use the rule of three when evaluating a service.
And there’s more. Our chat line was on fire about this discussion. You can catch the replay for a limited time. Just CLICK HERE
My next BOLD move was dinner with a client. We were celebrating her BOLD move that I was very proud to be a part of.
Here’s some background.
I started working with her a couple of years ago when she was a solopreneur. She’d been working solo as a consultant in her business, was making great money but felt something was missing. She recognized she’d reached a plateau. She’d gone as far as her personal capacity would allow. She was ready to build a business beyond her personal capabilities. We’ve since developed and worked her plan for growth.
This dinner was to celebrate her growth. Today she is a team of 8. While she was celebrating her team and the growth she’s experienced, I was celebrating the fact that THIS year, 2020, will be the year she enters the 9% club of small businesses making a million or more!!!!! And for that I had to ring the bell!!
I don’t know if she knows it yet. She will for sure when she reads this. However, she’s got the growth momentum and she’s got the right team to keep her elevated!! I am so super proud of her. Getting to this point wasn’t easy but she stuck with it and soon she will be in the club!! I won’t mention her name because I value confidentiality but my friend I want you to know I am so very proud of you and I am proud to be a part of your team!
The last BOLD move of the week was this.
That was my message to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Instagram! My BOLD move was commenting on their BOLD move.
They announced this week that they will be stepping back from their royal duties to step into their next level!
I absolutely LOVE this!!
Building a legacy
requires a shift. You’ve got to be willing to pivot in ways that are extremely nontraditional. If you want to make a real impact, you’ve got to be willing to be an outcast. You’ve got to make BOLD moves
Now, I’m hoping inside conversations with the family will help guarantee their success and traditional legacy won’t allow them to fail. We shall see. I still love the BOLD move they’re making to create their own success and their own marks on life! I wish them much success and will be watching their story.
As you can see, crafting your success and designing your destiny requires BOLD moves. It also requires careful design and planning.
