Have you ever thought about whether or not your formal education helped you to be a great entrepreneur? Some people think that because I have a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Marketing and a Masters Of Business Administration that I have an edge in business.
Well, interestingly enough this was the topic of conversation at the North American Centre for Collaboration Conference this year.
--> How do we better prepare students in post secondary institutes for life as an entrepreneur?
As a speaker at the conference, I had the delight to present my ideas on what I felt my post secondary education DID prepare me for as well as what it DID NOT prepare me for.
While it may not surprise you the skills I learned that did help me, it may surprise you the two skills I decided to point out that I did not learn in school. I feel it's necessary for schools to figure out how to integrate these into their programs if they want to give their graduates an edge in the world of entrepreneurship.
Note: whether you are in formal education right now or learning in the field from building your own business, you need to master these skills if you want to be successful.

Back in 2004, co-authors Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo created a movement on the dating scene that liberated women from men who were never going to give them what they want when their best selling book, He's Just Not That Into You hit book stores. The book was so popular that five years later it was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster movie.
The book has a solid lesson for daters. As business is just like dating, the advice can easily be applied to your business.

We have seen a dangerous conversation enter into the coaching industry over the last two years. One that has been dashing dreams quickly and leaving people feeling hopeless that having a truly successful coaching business that can support their dreams and allow them to give their gifts to the world in the way they really want, is not realistic.
The 'get rich quick' mentality has been infiltrated into the industry with promises of 5-figure months in a flash and a 6-figure income for life within time frames so fast it will have your head spinning.
Having been working with coaches build businesses for the last 6 years, I've had enough of this conversation and more importantly, I've had enough of seeing too many coaches feel as though they can't make it happen for them because it hasn't happened, 'yet' and it seems as though it has happened for everyone else.
Well, don't believe everything you see.
Here is my call out to all the coaches who are ready to shift the conversation in our industry because God knows, it's time for change.
