Make a Commitment to "Good Enough"


TGIF, Happy Friday and hello from the coast of North Carolina, where a group from Team Delegate has assembled for our annual retreat. Given that we are a 100% remote, distributed team, this year's retreat is really exciting for us because we have the opportunity to spend face time with the members of our NC contingent of Delegate.

This month I've been thinking a lot about commitment.  It could be because my fiancee and I just added another dog (third!!) to our family that commitment is heavy on my mind!  Or, perhaps it's my own personal evolution of hanging in there even when things are not "perfect" because I made a commitment to do so.  Either way, honoring our commitments is not always the easy choice, but it is a mindset shift that brings with it personal growth, stability and consistency.

How to Move From Make it Up to Make it Real


TGIF, Happy Friday and happy Independence Day!

As Visionaries, our greatest contribution is our ability to see our companies as globally as possible. We are uniquely able to understand and prioritize the most pressing needs, and then design creative solutions to to move forward.

I don't know how this process typically works for you, but for me it's typically super-organic and instinctual. Once we identify the problem, I give myself the space to creatively think about how we might solve it. Or sometimes, I'm not even thinking about it at all, and the answer suddenly just comes to me. What a feeling, right? :)

The challenge then lies in how to take this idea and model it, build it, test it and roll it out. This is where our team can become a true complement to our abilities. I follow a simple process to make my ideas real:

How to Take a Sabbatical From Your Business


TGIF, Happy Friday! I am back in the office this week, fresh off a 3 week sabbatical-- my first! It was quite detoxifying and I am happy to report it was also a success. Thanks to a lot of planning, delegation and accountability, I was able to completely step away from running my business for three whole weeks and watch it run without me... and nothing blew up! It was divinely indulgent. Want to do the same?

Below are my tips to make this happen:

Time Blocking Strategy


You know the what and the how, but do you know the when?

Like most professionals, you’re probably a planner.  You have your “to do” lists and your carefully laid out directions on what to do and how to do it.  But do you plan when to do those things?  If not, you may often find yourself jumping from task to task, maybe feeling a little overwhelmed by your “to do” lists and not getting as much accomplished in a day as you’d originally intended.  Have no fear, time blocking is here to help! Elon Musk does it, so does Bill Gates, you’ll be in good company!

Too Many Ideas but No Follow-Through? How to Move Your Ideas Quickly and Easily to Implementation

The ability to (1) dream up, (2) create and (3) execute new ideas is the calling of all entrepreneurial leaders.  A healthy business operates and grows when the 3 legs of the tripod are in balance. As visionaries, we naturally and bravely bring the ideation, but typically struggle with the other legs: creating a plan for our ideas and committing to a plan fully to execute them.  When the three are out of balance, a chronic start-stop dynamic grows between you and your team, and if not managed correctly can lead to team-wide burnout and a total lack of productivity and feelings of progress.

How To LOVE Your Work

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019


Happy Friday and February to you! It's the month of love and there's not much that can top the fulfilling feeling of doing work that inspires you. One of my favorite entrepreneurial thought leaders, Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach® teaches that "the most successful people are those who have learned how to focus on and leverage their unique strengths. In other words, they build their lives around their abilities, not their disabilities." He began talking about his realizations as “Unique Ability®," the essence of what you love to do and naturally do best.

Give the Gift of Feedback


The impact of giving feedback, like a great gift can depend greatly on how it is packaged. Positive or  negative feedback can be equally well received, if the intention behind it is to improve a situation or a relationship. 

Think about the worst gift you ever received. Was it ill conceived or was the intention behind it misread? One year I was given a laser facial-hair remover from my other half. My immediate reaction was to feel offended…”he thinks I’m too hairy!” His intention, however, was that he wanted to save me time and money in going to the salon. All was forgiven, but the gift was still returned. That’s my ME time, after all.

The Benefits Of A Strategic Coach Impact Filter


If you’re always on the lookout for something to save you time around delegation, Strategic Coach® and Delegate Solutions may have the answer.

In our work supporting entrepreneurs, we have found Strategic Coach’s Impact Filter tool to help both you and your team understand the results you are looking for and take the burden of those tasks away from you.

First, let's talk about why The Impact Filter™ is valuable in delegation. This tool allows you to get the project out of your head and specify what you want the ideal result to be.
