Getting to “Yes”

In recent months, I have found myself in conversations with business leaders about getting to “Yes.” There seems to be an increased number of people regardless of industry that are in discussions that include“no, no thank you,” “not right now,” or “maybe in a few weeks/months.” Often, it is not related to a sale but

Own Your Story…

“Who Is Your Superhero?”… Shouldn’t it be YOU?

I recently spent some time with an entrepreneur who felt that her team was “stepping on her cape.” Holding her back from expanding the business into different market areas, tightening expenses and taking the risk necessary to expand into the next phase of success.
