If You Can't Be Confident, Be Courageous

We all struggle with confidence now and then.  I remember being a new leader and feeling excited and limitless.  I was so ready to be a great manager and enjoy my higher salary and benefits.   And then I was almost immediately hit with a moment of panic wondering "Can I really do this?".  All of a sudden the flood gates...

Guilt does not serve you.

As leaders, in our lives and business, we often feel guilt from our actions and words that don't match our intentions. We get frustrated or overwhelmed and react accordingly.

Turn Stuck into Start

We all get stuck at some time and in some parts of our  lives.  What we wanted when we started our journey is not always what unfolds to be true later on.
