Don't Underestimate the Power of Negative Thinking and what you Need to do as "The Leader to Overcome it!"
Have you ever been so worried about what you should do that you can't finish what you need to do? Or have you ever heard things like "I wish I didn't have to go to work today!" or "God, this day is dragging!" or "That customer was a pain in the neck!" or "I never do anything fun" or "My job sucks the life out of me!" If you've ever had any of those thoughts -- or heard them from your colleagues -- they may be a bigger problem than you realize!
Remember that thoughts become things no matter what!
Think about ways to drive negativity out of your company and rebuild the sunny optimism that you felt the day you decided to become a business owner.
Is your company filled with good people who could improve their performance? Do you see untapped potential in your team members, but aren't sure how to propel their performance to the next level? If so, let's take a minute to reflect on strategies to help you motivate your existing workforce and attract the very best people to your organization moving forward.
As a small business owner who started a business from scratch, I love to share and help other female businesses owners learn how you can achieve your revenue and profit objectives on a modest budget.
Women have lost jobs at a higher rate than men, and have been more impacted by the pandemic than men, according to data compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau
The most recent Women in the Workplace Report by management consultants McKinsey & Company found, for the first time, that 1 in 4 women was considering stepping out of the workforce or downshifting their careers. This study of 40,000 employees concluded that if every woman who was considering quitting her job or reducing her workload actually did so, two million women would exit the US workforce. Women in senior roles, working mothers, and women of color were most at risk.
The single biggest challenge many female business owners face is a lack of capital to grow, and a difficult time forming a lending relationship with a bank -- and the result is that many businesses are successful, but can't reach the next level, or can't expand beyond a narrow market.
Mistakes are actually Stepping Stones to Success!
Have you ever heard the saying "without failure, there would be no success?" Think about it -- challenges, setbacks and failure are a part of our lives. The key is to learn from mistakes without excessively dwelling on the facts that caused the setback in the first place.

What if I told you there was a place inside your business that drains you and your company of revenues, increases your costs, and sometimes even creates dissension in your business?
This location creates distractions that interfere with productivity and team building, while also adding to your aggravation levels and increasing the expense of operating your business.
Drum roll, please ... in case you haven't figured it out yet, we're talking about your BROKE room well other people call it a break room but I call the BROKE room -- where toxic gossip infects your company and employees are paid to waste time. But more importantly, when was the last time you devoted attention to how your break room could be retooled to serve your purposes, instead of being a "BROKE Room?"
Ever wake up after getting plenty of sleep and yet you feel exhausted? After feeling this way, you realize that something has to radically change, but you aren't sure exactly what.
The first thing to do is be very strong and courageous and not lie to yourself.
- Ask yourself what is working?
- What is not working?
- Is there a gap between where I want to be and where I currently am in my business?
If you need to go outside of your inner circle for that, then that's when you need to do to get a really honest answer and not lie to yourself. You can hire a coach or get an accountability partner outside of your friend circle. We are just not designed to point those things out to ourselves, that is why they are called "blind spots." We all have them in both our personal and professional business life.
Trust me if you already knew how to do it, you would have done it.
