What I Liked

What I Didn't Like

Before we get into it... who am i?

Always good to put a name to a face, so firstly, my name is Hope!

Like you, I was stuck working 8-10 hour days building someone else’s dream.

I worked at one of those cool tech companies that has omelet stations for breakfast & craft beer on tap for after hours.

To a lot of people that’s a dream, but to me… something was missing.

All I really wanted, was to actually enjoy life – more vacations, less stress, buy myself nice things without worrying about the cost… but that was something my 9-5 couldn’t provide me.

That was until a few years ago when I discovered a way to make money online by actually helping real people. 

People in this case were local business owners across the US.

Me and My Puppy

The page above is an example of how I do it. That one-page site generates $1,500/mo and I haven’t even touched it since it was put up.

That’s an $18,000/year raise from just one page.

That’s why local lead generation is my #1 business recommendation for recurring, semi-passive income. If you want to learn about that business model, click here.

Why Does That Matter?

A lot of course reviewers have no experience with any of the business models or programs they review, and so they’re just making stuff up.

They do that because they want you to click through their link to buy from the person that the review is about!

They have no clue what it’s actually like to run the different types of businesses they write about.
I have absolutely no relationship with this program, so you can rest easy knowing I’m going to give you my honest opinion.
This review is written based on my own experiences with this business model.

All that being said, let’s jump into things.

Wear it like a Tattoo

Just the other day, I learned that there is a crime gang out there, that tattoos the necks of their victims with a barcode, which serves as an identifier.  Aside from its obvious terroristic approach, and dehumanizing effects, it got me thinking how this crazy idea could be applied to leadership.  As experienced leaders know, balance demands a huge role around the lives of each and every achieving executive in the form of work-life balance.   However, also within their roles as a key capability among their various competencies.

What if the word “balance” could somehow be tattooed on every leader’s skin whether wrist, neck, or ankle, to serve as a reminder of its importance?  I know this technique would have saved me a lot of misery!

Well, one can only dream right? Until then, I guess engraining it in our brains as a core value, similar to hard-work, honesty and trust would have to do.

Leadership demands a balance not only of a set of hard skills (those that are directly part of an organization, position and role) but also soft skills (those related to communication, engagement, discipline, feedback, training and having following etc.) because, let’s face it, without a following, leadership is obsolete!

How well (or not) your team contributes to the organization’s  success depends on this notion. Much depends on how well you manage to harness the commitment, efforts, skills and effectiveness of your team, and then how well you are able to let go and allow your team to take up the challenge and deliver.

As a leader, when do you let go and allow employees to Sink or Swim?

Here are 10 indicators to use as guidance:

  1. A reciprocal and healthy balance of taking and giving responsibility, guidance and feedback.
  2. Well communicated set of boundaries for you as well as your team.
  3. Foreseeing risk and planning to involve the team in managing it (refer to www.centerforworklife.com/webinars) in Sept. on Risk.
  4. Transparency and clarity in setting expectations for outcomes including timelines, through getting buy-in.
  5. Rewarding exceptional results and having clear consequences for non-achievement.
  6. Empowering the team to realize the strategic focus on innovation, and the targets to get there.
  7. Understand the actions and behaviors, which will facilitate engagement (the principles of Emotional Intelligence).
  8. Set the example for being a trusted advisor rather than a dictator.  One leads to learning, while the latter leads to rebelliousness).  Only one pays off!
  9. Do. Don’t tell.  We learn by doing.  This is precisely why criticism doesn’t deliver results.  Setting up the scenario and stepping back, will allow the individual to understand their own process.  Telling interrupts the process.
    And finally.
  10. Live a double life!  No matter how large your organization or the team you lead, the same old never is.  Push your limits and ask for accountability to be innovative.  There are so many ways to solve the same challenges.  Solve them wearing a different hat each and every day.
