Google CEO, Eric Schmidt – “Everybody needs a coach”

As a Business Coach, I enjoyed listening to Mr. Schmidt’s endorsement of how helpful it’s been for him to have Coach.

It’s a big myth that only people in trouble or people who lack solutions or who can’t solve their own problems hire coaches. The truth is that hiring a coach gives you another perspective on life/business, an ear to hear yourself speak outloud, and cheerleader, someone who helpfully questions you, and a person who provides you advice.

16 Ways To Leave Your Financial Firm

The best planning processes keeps the end goal in mind.

While creating their Business Blueprint, I ask all new clients the question “how do you want to exit your firm”. The most common answers are:

  1. I want to drop dead at my desk
  2. Why do we need to talk about that for?  (especially if they’ve just gone independent, but usually the answer for anyone under 40)

Yet dying at your desk will create numerous problems for your estate and that sort of strategy will only hurt your family and staff — and your clients!.   In fact, financial advisors and planners, CPAs, etc.  are acutely aware that having ownership in a business upon death isn’t a good financial planning.

It Takes 21 Days To Create A Habit — Hogwash!

You may have heard the same thing as I did. That it takes 21 days to create a habit. And like many coaches, I’m mimicked that information —even to my clients.

Often it took them more than 21 days to create a habit or change a mind-set. For some, it may have taken a week or so, but for others it took a longer amount of years.
