Happy New Year! Hard to believe we already are well on our way into 2016! It feels as if we were only just celebrating the 4th of July … last year! And, I know you are off to the races, pounding the pavement, and getting things done! Or, are you?
Do you have what you need to up your game and take your business and life to the next level? Are you surrounding yourself with the people who are going to challenge you and help you grow? I ask this as I am coming off a 3-day mastermind with my business coach and accountability group … and, let me tell you, it was beyond POWERFUL and eye-opening!
You see, to be surrounded by people who think BIG like you, without judgement or competition, only love and support, is one of the MOST EMPOWERING things you can do for yourself and your business! Because, you simply cannot go at it alone! Well, I suppose you can, if you want lots of frustration, headaches and the feeling of being isolated from the rest of the world.
But, why, on earth, would you want that?
When, instead, you can purposefully and intentionally surround yourself with people who shine a light on your strengths, who keep you motivated when things get tough (and, trust me, they will and do, repeatedly), who will pick you up when you lose a big deal and find your confidence slipping, who will be a sounding board to the ideas and vision you desire to continue to grow, and who bring an abundant sense of what is possible to the table.
There is this incredible power and energy in being part of something bigger than yourself. Being part of a community where you can “just be” and allow yourself to be vulnerable as an executive, an entrepreneur, or as an emerging leader.
For me, the pace was fast, the content was rich, and the camaraderie was electric! As a result, I walked away with a full marketing strategy for 2016, along with so many nuggets to help me streamline, segment, and sequence my business so I truly can move into a place where I am only playing at my highest and best level. I NOW get to position myself fully as a CEO within my business and build a team around me. All that from tapping into the experience, the knowledge, and the strategies shared within my coach and with my mastermind.
So, are you REALLY ready to go to the next level your business? Are you READY for 2016 to be the year for you to #goBIGtogrowBIGGER? Then, who are you choosing to surround yourself with? Do you have a business coach, and/or an accountability group to push you, to support you, to challenge you, and to lift you up?
I invite you to explore the possibilities of bringing both into your business.
To start, I encourage you to take my FREE assessment: http://sayyesquiz.com to gain a better understanding of where your current gaps and opportunities are.
And to build community, I invite you to check out the Empowerment League, an accountability group designed especially for solopreneurs, entrepreneurs and business owners.
This is a community of like-minded individuals designed to bring YOU a monthly virtual training call and monthly Q&A call to help you think bigger, execute bigger, and grow bigger, as a result. Check it out: http://www.candybaroneinternational.com/empowerment-league.html
Now, as you reach for the stars in 2016 (for they are yours for the taking), may you truly have a blessed and prosperous year! Make this YOUR year to #sayYEStoyourself and know that you ARE empowered strong!
Sending you much love and heart-to-heart hugs!
