  1. You don’t need to be a professor to teach something.

  2. Dig the well before you’re thirsty. Reach out to those people and ask how they’re doing without asking for anything in return.

  3. Outreach is not a bonus to your business. It’s a foundational element.

  4. ABG. Always be giving. Always be generous.

  5. Don’t try to close business. Find people you know who are a good fit for each other and build your social capital.

  6. Lead with value.

  7. Stop thinking, “What’s in it for me.” Don’t keep score.

  8. Generosity makes you stronger. When you help other people succeed, it rubs off on you.

  9. The best thing you can do is serve the customer, even if it means referring a competitor out of good will.

  10. When you become a referral team, you can give away business and still win.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

IMG_9996.jpg
  1. The #1 human desire is connection. We need to feel seen and heard.
  2. Someone else’s energy is not your energy, and it’s not your responsibility.
  3. Empty yourself from the drama, the stories...and then ask yourself, “Who am I?”
  4. Practice active breathing, even if it’s only 5 minutes. Make that space for yourself.
  5. Healing and freedom doesn’t have to be so complicated. The human body has the tools to do this automatically. We just need to tap into it.
  6. No one has a clutter problem. Your disorganization is just an excuse to ignore why you’re not doing what you actually want to do.
  7. It can be different. It just takes one bite at a time.
  8. Keep one drawer or one closet completely empty. Invite space for something new to enter your life.
  9. Be specific about what success looks like to you. Have a clear image of what you want to do.
  10. To grow your business and yourself, you can’t do it alone. Find the support so you can focus on your zone of genius.
  11. No suffering is impossible to overcome. There’s something out there that will help you reach balance and harmony.
