We all need encouragement, motivation, feedback and accountability, but where is the best place to get them?

We need an objective source that can allow us to see the truth in the mirror that we fail to see ourselves.

And although way too many people see “asking for help” as a sign of weakness, the truly successful among us know that help is “The Secret Sauce”.

Jamie Tardy, author of the Eventual Millionaire, interviewed over 70 self-made millionaires for her book. The one thing they all had in common was the use of masterminds, mentors and coaches.

• Why you need to ask for help and the difference it can make in your success and your learning curve.
• How to know which you need at different stages of your business.
• How to evaluate someone’s expertise before you work with them.

So listen in and join the discussion. Do you think this level of help is necessary to be a successful business owner?

Passion Vs Purpose – Do You Need Both?

Passion - A Strong Barely Controllable Emotion. An Intense Emotion Compelling Action.

It seems like everyone is “searching for their passion”, but it’s not an object to be found. It’s not an Easter egg you will find under a bush if you just look hard enough.

Passion is an emotion and I have a big pet peeve with this “finding your passion” movement that has been derailing too many people for way too long.

Finding your passion and turning it into a business is not the path to eternal happiness that so many experts preach.

In this episode Pamela and I discuss my pet peeve with “finding your passion” and how each of us views it. You will learn:

• The difference between passion and purpose and why that misunderstanding is derailing so many people from a fulfilling life.
• Why the pursuit of your passion could steal more from you than it can ever give.
• Your passions and your purpose will change throughout your life and how to be open to the change.
• Exercises to help you understand your passions and your purpose and that they can intersect but don’t always.

So listen in and join the discussion. What’s your opinion of passion and purpose?
