4 things you are probably doing in your business or nonprofit that you need to stop doing immediately.
Many are walking a dangerous line. I’ll explain. Though the rules have changed, and many can sense this, and may even know logically that they need to change, they just haven’t changed the old way of doing things. This is primarily due to two things. 1) You don’t know what it is exactly that you need to change and 2) you haven’t broken your habits of operating the old way. Which also means you know what you need to change, but haven’t figured out how to implement the change.
Knowing is a big part of changing. So, let’s start with learning what it is we need to change immediately. I say immediately because continuing to operate in this way will absolutely lead to failure. A business and organization can no longer sustain themselves this way.
In the spring of 2013, I was taking a much needed hike with a good friend and colleague of mine, and I was going on about how I felt like nothing was going right for me. Even though I had just completed the 28 Day Marketing Challenge program with rave reviews and launched the Women Entrepreneurs Circle, not to mention my daughter was crazy fun, I was still somehow feeling as though I was falling down this rabbit hole with no end in sight. I told her how this crazy feeling of uncertainty and instability brought on anxiety, and even managed to crush my self confidence. Though I was doing so many great things and living a seemingly awesome life, I felt things were spiraling out of control and I was headed towards a slow doom.
