3 Things You Need to Know About Grit

There are 3 things you need to know about grit. It’s not the gunk that’s stuck on your sinks and shower tubs. It’s not that feeling you get when you’re exfoliating your face either. And, it’s definitely not the texture you feel in your mouth when you eat one of those baked goods that are not fluffy and moist. Grit is defined as having perseverance and passion for long-term goals (Duckworth, 2016). But, what does grit feel like? Think back to finals week for school or when you had 52 deadlines set for the coming week. You know you have […]

How to Get Anything You Want (In Life and Business)

Yikes, it’s so hype-y to say, but there’s really a strategy to get anything you want in life and business. It’s often an overlooked part of our day, yet it’s always the small things that get us, right? You just have to work long and hard for whatever you want. Period. There’s no magic bullet or secret sauce for achieving any goal. Olympians train for 6 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, for 10 years (or longer) before trying for the Olympic games. CEO’s work 7-days a week for 30 years. If I want to have nice hair all […]

Am I Actually Good at Anything?

Sometimes simple doesn’t always mean obvious. Life and business is simple if you know one key thing: your strength. After being at Ryan Moran’s Freedom Fast Lane Live event in Austin, Texas last winter, it was very clear what millionaires and billionaires had in common: Knowing your strength and what you’re good at is the foundation of every business. It’s so cliche to say that we often overlook this concept. Think of it as knowing the skills you are good at, as well as the skills you’re not so good at. Would you be more likely to start a business […]
