Planning for Success with Mridu Parikh

 

Far too many female entrepreneurs fail to reach their goals because they don’t plan for success.  They think that passion, energy, and creativity are enough and may reject the idea of planning as unnecessary, irrelevant, or just too painful.  I used to be one of them and gave myself every possible excuse for why I couldn’t plan when I was actually afraid I wouldn’t follow through. 

Today’s guest, Mridu Parikh, a former professional organizer...

Entrepreneurial Inertia

One of the concepts I teach my coaching clients is entrepreneurial inertia. I use this term to explain two of the most common tendencies that entrepreneurs have that make us a mystery ( or completely annoying) to others. I made up the expression, but the inertia part is actually a physics phenomenon you are probably aware of. Inertia is a force that has two opposites. If I was a middle school science teacher, I would explain it like this: a body at rest remains at rest until an outside force...

The Side Hustle Entrepreneur with Vanessa Zamy

 

We have all heard the stories of the woman who gave her boss the finger, strode out of her job in her high heels and launched a 6-figure online business overnight, but this is not only a fairy tale, but how many of us could go for who-knows-how-long without a paycheck as a first time entrepreneur? Unless you are an heiress, married into money or are living in your car and living on the dollar menu and free Wifi at McDonalds, the side hustle route makes a lot more sense.  ...

In fact, I am willing to bet, without even knowing...

Dealing with Expectations

 

When I first started coaching female entrepreneurs,  we focused a lot on productivity and time management, because my clients wanted to get more done.  So, I taught them the latest techniques to identify their most important goals and to accomplish them more efficiently.  Over time, our coaching conversations had shifted to energy management - when to do our creative work and when to do the tasks that require more focused effort. But, they were still overwhelmed and...

The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Productivity

productivity Mar 31, 2021

I read a lot of books. I mean a lot. Nearly all of them are non fiction. If I want to be entertained, I'll watch something on Netflix or go to a concert or play. If I want to be educated, informed or enlightened, I go with a book. Learning is my jam. If it wasn't for the fact that I am a people person and I need to be physically active to feel good, I could just read and learn and take classes in whatever I was interested in at the time for the rest of my life. I have to push myself to do...
