Whoooo are you? Who? Who?.... Who? Who?

Building a Coaching Relationship with Integrity I have been a fan of The Who for 38 years. I love their music and their powerful contribution to rock and roll, but above all, I love the strength of their message. To me, the music of The Who is about integrity and being true to yourself.

Three ways to add hours to your week

At the risk of alienating every fan of RescueTime, Toggl and the Pomodoro Method, I want to make a bold assertion: managing your time has nothing to do with how you do the things you do. Most tips and tools about how to increase productivity focus on maximizing efficiency. And as the owner of your business you cou...

Client story: Kukis by Maru

When my husband and I travel, we spend a lot of time in bookstores. I'm always in the self-help or the business/marketing section.

What do the numbers say about your business?

Every great business has its verbal story: how it got started, where it’s going, what the culture is and who the key characters are. But while your words are important, your numbers are your validation. Without understanding what the numbers are telling you, you can’t ever quantify what your business is actually d...

Client story: Kanon Group

I read an article in a remodeling industry magazine called “Letting Go.” It was about the process of developing a business that worked without you. I immediately felt like that’s what was missing from my business. I realized that I’d developed a business that was completely about me. I was central to every signifi...

Cut your problems down to size

One of the easiest habits to fall into as a business owner is to group individual problems into big buckets like ‘I can’t get my team on board’. That might be true, but by thinking about it in this way, you've advertently put the problem in a frame that you can’t really work on. Instead, get in the habit of turnin...

How to stop wasting time in your sales calls

You know what a bad sales call feels like.
