Are you having unsupervised thinking? You’re not alone. Many of those thoughts are probably negative in some way. Here’s a list of thoughts you can think instead.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. Your business is hard because YOU THINK IT IS!
  2. Things to think instead:
    • I’m getting better at it every day.
    • Look at what I’ve built.
    • I’m in the process of figuring it out.  A la Danielle LaPorte
    • Of course it happened that way.
    • I’m totally capable.
    • I can and will ask for help.
    • I’m not alone.
    • I’m really good at failing so I can succeed.
  3. The worthiness of you is always innate. It doesn’t go away. You’ve always had it and you can never lose it.
  4. Comparing thoughts is detrimental. Other people’s wins don’t compromise yours.
  5. What would your future self tell you to do and what to think about this?
  6. Write down all the things you’re thinking that aren’t helping.

Typically, it’s a bad idea to make assumptions. But in this one case, I want you to always assume this one thing! It will be better for you, your business and your employees.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. Always make this assumption – when someone on your team doesn’t do what you want, I want you to assume it’s your responsibility.
  2. When we see someone not do something the way we thought they should do it, it’s human nature to blame them for it.
  3. Blame creates lag.
  4. You need to make sure you:
    • Have a clear vision for the business
    • Have clear values
    • Have clear expectations for every team member. Common sense is not common.
    • Are delegating and not abdicating
    • Are following up with people and looking at their results
    • Are giving feedback

If you are a female entrepreneur, and you’re either in, or considering getting into, a partnership or working relationship with your spouse, there are some absolute fundamentals we need to address.

What you'll find in this episode:

1) A marriage operates very differently than a business. 

2) You need to have clearly defined roles in the business for each of you.

3) You need to have a clear definition of who does what and who owns what and what decisions each of you make.

4) You have to decide how you will communicate and have a scheduled, dedicated assigned time and a clear agenda; no after-hours discussions.

5) You have to talk about how you’re going to disagree; decide what the process will be.

6) You have to have clear values, a clear vision and a clear manifesto.

7) You have to have a conversation about how you want to be as leaders and managers of this business.

There’s a misguided belief among entrepreneurs that team building should be fast and easy and that you shouldn’t have to slow down to do it. However, if you’re trying to cut corners here, it will be obvious in your outcomes.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. Do you feel like Kris’ client? “I feel like adding people to my business is slowing me down.”
  2. If you take the time and do it right, you can magnify the effort of your business through 10 people instead of just one.
  3. Investing in your human capital isn’t unique to you. It’s the same across all industries.
  4. There’s a right way to invest in, and develop, the human capital part of your business.

What do your employees say about working for you? Do they say, “she’s a beast” or do they say, “I feel like I won the lottery”? Here are some things to consider when thinking about your employees’ experience of working with you.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. If you treat your employees like you treat your clients, you’re going to get the most out of them.
  2. Think about who are you as a leader and how you act with your employees.
  3. How do you want them to experience various things like a performance review, getting an assignment or not meeting an expectation?
