Has believing you’re not business minded held you back? If so, I have good news to share: That may only be because being business minded may not be as you envision it. There is much more to it than stats, accounting and marketing. Don’t allow behaviors and skills that can be cultivated and activated – even if you weren’t good at them in the past – hold you back any longer!
Because how we think about all this can be such a hindrance, I wanted to address it. When I thought about how to approach this topic, my friend Jody Moore immediately came to mind. Jody is a gifted coach and she’s developed a program literally called “Business Minded”. As we recorded this episode, Jody shared how she used to believe she wasn’t business minded but learned differently. She and I go on to discuss several aspects of what it actually means to be business minded, including important metrics, consistent behaviors, sales approaches, and much more.
“Without consistent behavior, skills don’t matter. And, the good news is, you don’t even have to have the skills if you just compensate with behavior… And, then of course, ironically enough, the more behaviors you put in, the better your skills become.” – Jody Moore
Jody in her own words…
Hello, I’m Jody. I’m a lot like you. I am a mother of 4, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and a woman trying to figure out how to minimize resentment, overwhelm and guilt, and replace them with happiness, gratitude and joy.
Three years after getting married I found myself with two kids under age 2, a loving husband, and a lot of self-loathing. I struggled with the duties associated with being a mom and wife and then I felt guilty for feeling that way. After all, this was the life I thought I’d always wanted.
I have a BA in Communications and an MA in Adult Education along with 15 years of experience as a Corporate Trainer and Leadership Coach, but what has helped me the most to overcome my struggles and to conquer all of my goals, are the tools I use now to coach my clients. Thanks to my extensive training with Brooke Castillo of The Life Coach School, I am now a Certified Life Coach, and I couldn’t be more proud of the work I get to do in the world.
What I learned when I found coaching (and now teach to others), helped me gain my confidence back. It helped me enjoy my kids and love my husband exactly as he is. It helped me create a successful business and be the kind of mom I want to be at the same time. The tools I teach are the ones that have helped me live gospel principles and develop a closer relationship with my Heavenly Father.
Today I have the honor of helping women (and a few brave men) achieve the results they desire in all areas of their life. My clients range from young newlyweds to empty nesters and together, we are changing the results in their lives.
I feel so honored to get to work with these individuals to improve their relationships, their confidence, their physical, mental and emotional health, their money situation and their contribution in the world.
I believe all of my previous education and experience has prepared me to do this work. I’m a lucky woman. And guess what?
So are you. I will help you find it.

Five full days of complete immersion during which you’ll be coached and advised, and you’ll develop every team system you need to have in place to build an amazing team. You, and your person that helps you with all this (your Ops person), will leave with everything in hand, built, documented, ALL ready to implement. It will be a week of not just learning about how to do things but having everything developed so you can implement immediately.
The week is scheduled for late August, in Scottsdale, AZ. You must be at 7 figures to join because the complexity of your team is important for this exercise.
