Get a pen. Write this down. “Resentment grows where a boundary needs to be planted.” We all have “that” person in our lives who over-steps, asks too much, and doesn’t give in return. But, what if “that” person is a client? This episode is Part #2 of a 3-part series exploring the importance of having clear values to guide you in business. In this ep…
 
Being ‘busy’ has become a badge of honor in our society – signaling to other people, and to ourselves, that we’re valuable, in demand, and hard-working. But, at what cost? Today on the podcast, we’re diving deep into ‘hustle culture.’ We’re talking about the surprising roots of where it came from, the impact it has on our behavior and whether we’re…

The types of difficult decisions we are faced with in business are unique because they aren't really straight-forward. Many times, there are no clear-cut right answers. No obvious path forward. Lots of times, there isn't even an optimal choice to make - we're weighing between multiple options that are equally important, enticing, or risky. It's a r…
 
Stop right now, and do a quick scan of your mind. How are you feeling? What is your attitude in this moment? Is there anything you're working toward, trying to change, or attempting to get away from? Have you ever stopped to consider that maybe, just maybe, the present moment is fine, as is? Take our latest psych strength quiz at: https://www.peakm…
 
I can't think of many other life experiences that require more personal growth than entrepreneurship. Launching a new product or service into the market takes grit. Resilience. Strength. Bravery. And failure, is inevitable. Because of that, we need to redefine our relationship with failure, and we’re digging into how to do that on today’s episode. …
 
Conflict in our closest relationships is inevitable. No matter how great a relationship is, at some point or another, we’ll find ourselves in an argument, and today’s episode is focused on helping you “win” every argument. But here’s the thing, our biggest goal with this episode is to redefine what a “win” is. We would argue that a successful argum…

We find ourselves rushing through life, day after day. But, let me ask you this, what's at the end of all that rushing? Take our latest psych strength qui…
 
Many entrepreneurs leave the comfort of their 9-5 jobs in search of freedom. But, there are 2 sides to the freedom coin. On one side is opportunity. The ability to build and experience boundless growth. The feeling you get when you realize the ceiling has been removed on the amount of money you can make. It's incredible. But, the opportunity side o…
 
Virus Fatigue. If we’re being honest, we’re all experiencing it to some degree. As we release this episode, the U.S. has been in the COVID epidemic for exactly a year. This is longer than any of us expected when it all began. The dirty secret of all of this is that, we’re human beings. We have needs. And, many of those needs have been taken away fr…
 
So many times, when we stumble through something new, big, unfamiliar, or ambiguous, we think EVERYONE IS WATCHING US! We second-guess and pick apart our decisions, behaviors, and failures because we FEEL LIKE WE'RE ON A STAGE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE! Today, I want to focus on something called the spotlight effect. This is the tendency we have to overe…
 
Since 1950, rates of anxiety and depression have rapidly increased in the U.S. and around the globe, to the point that we now have a mental health crisis on our hands. Improvement in testing and diagnosis does not explain this increase. Rather, changes in our diet, environment, and lifestyle are believed to explain this rapid increase. Our brains a…

Imagine you're at a networking event, dinner, or cocktail party. You find yourself striking up a conversation with someone you've never met, and they inevitably ask you THE question: "So, what do you do?" If you're anything like me, that innocent question became a loaded one when I became an entrepreneur. I fumbled through it, weakly answering in a…
 
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, resentful, exhausted, or stretched too thin, it could be a sign that you’re overfunctioning. Overfunctioning is when we take on more than our fair share of responsibility inside of the context of the system we’re in. Whether it’s our family system, our work system, or another context. When we overfunction, we take on …
 
Last Monday, we talked about the importance of experiencing success when you're trying to create a new habit. But, how do you truly appreciate those successes? By tracking them. The simple act of tracking your own behavior and the accountability it provides can be the slight nudge you need to help you stay on track when you otherwise wouldn't. Take…
 
Tell me if you've ever experienced this. You're working on your business or setting a new goal, or planning for a product or service launch, or forecasting revenue for the year, and your mind steps in. It says, "Who are you to think you can achieve that?" or "Why do you think you're qualified when so many others are better than you?" Imposter syndr…
 
When was the last time you felt ashamed? Did you feel inclined to talk to someone about how you were feeling, or did you keep it to yourself? As you think back, were you feeling ashamed about something you actually had control over or were you accepting shame for something outside of your direct control? Does shame ever play a role in influencing y…
 
Friends, it is January, and if you're like so many other people, you're probably working on a new goal. Many times, we set huge lofty goals, only to feel awful later on when we "fail."
