Happy New Year!
I am so excited about this year I can hardly stand it. I am looking at a fresh, clean desk that I spent 3 hours working on yesterday. I shredded 2 garbage bags worth of old documents, put up new pictures on my bulletin board and wrote the following on my white board:
- Great partners
- Time is precious
- Live it to give it
- No excuses
These are my mantras for 2008. I will write about each as the month goes on, but I want to start with an exciting update for the first one: Great partners.
If you have read this blog for very long, you know that I am a big fan of my coaching mentor, Martha Beck (picture above). She has written a number of books including my favorite Finding Your Own North Star, and is a monthly columnist for O, Oprah’s Magazine. I am kind of picky about coaching gurus, but Martha is the real deal for me. She is wickedly smart, funny, thoughtful and has a very effective and powerful coaching methodology.
So I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to write for her blog twice a month, starting today. You can read the "back story" in my first post, but basically I will be writing about things that have a bigger scope than just starting a business. I see it as a great addition to my portfolio of activities, as well as a way to sharpen my coaching knowledge and reach a wider audience.
Knowing that all of you have more on your mind than just starting a business, I hope you enjoy it too.
Check out the first post here. We will be migrating to a different website soon and will add the RSS info when that is complete. For now, I will let you know on this blog when new posts are available.
