Ep #029: What’s Your “Burn the Boats” Moment?

Well here we are with the first episode of 2019 and we are talking about burning the boat.  During the course of running and growing our businesses we are sometimes faced with decisions we need to make but are scared and intimidated by them. This episodes cover why sometimes we just need to “burn the boat.”

Here are some highlights:

First up is a history lesson on where the “burn the boats” concept comes from…all the way back in the 1500.

Then to explain the concept with a real world example, I talk about one big burn the boats moment I had early on after starting my 2nd business. It has to do with getting rid of all of my corporate suits.

I discuss other burn the boats moments I’ve had like shrinking my 1-on-1 coaching practice to give more room to growing my online training programs like Growth By Referrals and Sticky Client Experiences.

And we end the episode with a CHALLENGE FOR YOU!
