“Are you willing to stop? And are you willing to ask the questions?”

“Often we’re in the thick of it, all we can see are the trees, we got to zoom out, we got to look at the forest view. And we have to say, Okay, here’s where I want to go next. Because then we can communicate that to our team members. And we can make sure that we’re all moving in that direction together.”

“100% done well by someone else is better than 80% done perfectly by you, and that’s the truth. It’s not about doing it perfectly or doing it in a very specific way, it’s what is good enough and letting go of some of that.”

“You get to choose what you do. You get to choose where you focus. You get to choose what you prioritize. You get to choose what goes on your calendar. And by leaning into that we take in a lot of that power and that allows us to really step into what it is we want and where we want our business to go.”

“It seems really important to understand the difference between hours of business and hours of availability, hours of availability, or when you’re available for your customers and your clients, hours of business or when you’re working in your business..”
