FREEDOM FIGHTER FOR THE UNCOMMON ENTREPRENEUR
Who would have thought being a shy teenager, withdrawing by hiding behind a camera and in a darkroom would have led to a 31 year career as the go-to photographer for America’s most affluent families. And how then it would make perfect sense that the instincts and knowledge gained would be shared with Uncommon Entrepreneurs around the globe as a business coach. That the shy kid would be the host of a popular podcast and stand on stages as a speaker across the nation, inspiring entrepreneurs to build successful businesses so that they can put their best work out in the world. Sometimes, this is just how life unfolds.

THE FUN AND CURIOUS WARRIOR
When you think of a good leader, what do you think of? A good leader is someone who really knows the people that are following them. The people who follow them also know all about the leader. There needs to be a strong level of empathy. People need that emotional connection, and to feel invested. If you throw your power around, you’re only going to get compliance – not motivation. Nothing gets done efficiently with compliance.
WARRIOR of Reciprocity
When you’re a Creative Warrior, there is virtually no separation between you and your business. In fact, what we explore in this episode is the power to get the results you want in your business by advancing your personal development. The anchor of this episode is my favorite quote by Jim Rohn–“Your level of success rarely exceeds your level of personal development.” Think of this as a moveable ceiling. You raise the ceiling by advancing yourself and your level of success rises to meet your new height.
Have you ever been in a meeting where you saw someone absentmindedly scribbling on a paper instead of listening to the presentation? Did you think they were being rude, not paying attention, and clearly not interested in what was going on? You couldn’t have been more wrong.
Doodling is a very powerful tool, especially for creatives. It’s a way for the mind and body to remain engaged in what’s going on.
