Is Innovation an Accident or the Result of Deliberate Action?

Is innovation an accident or is it deliberate? Do we excel at being creative and benefit from the output of creativity when it’s shaped by accident or by the stress and strain of such an event when it occurs unplanned? Or is innovation and its output at its best when it’s a conscious exercise which is planned and executed? Also, what is true innovation vs. an enhancement of existing innovation? Let’s jump in to this episode and find out…

An Ounce of Forethought is Better than a Pound of Action!

A little bit of restraint in any actions you take can go a long way to ensure you do not regret the action past doing it. Irrespective of what triggers the action, a bit of thought to check on the reasons for the action and the emotional state that it is being taken in, ensure the right mindset is being applied before the action is taken. Let’s review what can be done to THINK and ACT than ACT and THINK, this time around about what went wrong and how to fix it!

Exit Route – Make Your Choice!

We all have choices to make in everything we do, right from figuring out what to wear to work, to what path to take to the office, to what to have for lunch! While some of these choices feel mundane and not something you’d like to spend much time on, there are other choices you need to make that can have a greater influence on your life, perhaps even determine the kind of life you will have into the future. These decisions require skill and insights before you make them, in fact, even introspection in terms of what you really want from them and what your own interpretation of success is. Let’s discuss this through a couple of stories I’d like to share…

Tête-à-tête with Kathy McLead, Creator of Stay at Home Mom Entrepreneur

Kathy McLead is the creator of Stay at Home Mom Entrepreneur: the proven framework for creating a highly profitable business that you love while working 2 hours a day.

Kat started as an exotic dancer, later a dominatrix, where she realized her marketing skills but hated the work and eventually decided to come out of it and go to graduate school.

She started her first multiple 6 figure business 20 years ago, and hasn’t slowed down since — not even after having kids. A fun fact: That business’s profits meant that she had way more money than her husband when they first got married and was able to pay the entire $450,000 down payment on their home. Not that he minded!

She fully planned on being a pampered Stay at Home Mom, but once her son began preschool, and she actually had ME time again for the first time in years, she became restless. So she came out of “retirement” and started coaching her friends just to give her a little extra buzz.

Since then, she’s helped numerous Stay at Home Moms find fulfillment and independent income outside of motherhood all while staying Mom first.

AND that’s how she developed THE ONLY BUSINESS FRAMEWORK specifically designed for a BUSY MOM.

In this episode, Kat discusses her unusual initial career & her current success helping Moms start their businesses.

Most of us need to work for a living. That’s a given! What kind of a living and doing what is totally upto you. You acquire skills and knowledge and get into a job with an organization or perhaps, strike out on your own, early in your career or at some point after you have acquired a few years of work experience working for someone else . Hopefully, in a job that you like and a company that you adore.

As you evolve in your role and understand your realm of influence better, you take on further responsibilities and start climbing up the ladder or perhaps, find a better role at a different organization. It’s important that you identify your skillset, domain and organization you work with, in order not just to enjoy what you do but to make your biggest impact with your work. For someone in control of their knowledge, skills and work, the holistic management of their career comes easy. 

Most of us embark on a career that spans between 30-40 years of our productive life. Its ideal to have a plan, keep revisiting it from time to time to make adjustments and changes and execute on your life plan. As you grow and change, so do your surroundings, work culture, work needs and your own interests and needs. Its important to revisit your career path, skill needs and interests from time to time to ensure you make adjustments. You may need to learn new things with the changes in play, environmentally, technically or otherwise. You may no longer be interested in skills that got you excited about, at the beginning of your career. You would have gathered expertise and experience over time which helped evolve you as a person and a professional and now, you may want to discover your new potential by chasing after what inspires you now, at this point in time.And that is how it should be when it comes to managing and realizing your potential.

On the other hand, if you are not in control of your skills, likes and dislikes or hold on to a job, not to give it your best, but for security or a paycheck, then you are not just doing a disservice to the organization you work for, but to your self and your potential. You are barely living and scraping through without testing your own mettle and making, even an attempt at realizing your potential. By this, I do not mean that you need to stop one day and jump ship to pursue what you believe you want to do. What I mean is start with introspection, understanding yourself and your creative, personal and professional needs. Now, take stock of your family’s and living needs. Create a plan for transitioning yourself to what you really want to do. Ensure you build in time and energy to acquire new skills, plan and execute on that plan in a step by step manner while you review its results. Make adjustments to your plan based on results. From time to time, ask yourself, if you are enjoying this process and if this is the right direction you want to go in. Course correct, if needed.

I have friends who went through a 15 year career as an Engineer and realized that what they wanted to do was be a doctor, went back to school for several years before they became a practicing doctor in their mid 40’s. I know of people who embarked on a second career after retirement, this time pursuing their passion.At any point in life, you can take control of your life. Its never too late. First, quell the doubts and fears and affirm in yourself what you plan and hope to do. Then, just do it! Irrespective of the size of your material success, you will be glad you did it for this will be the best time of your life and those around you, for they will see a different you and will have a new found respect for you. Your inspiration for others will be immense! And you will leave the world a better place, with no regrets! Just these aspects of it are worth it!

An Interview with Jonny Cooper, Founder & CEO, Jonny Hates Marketing

British entrepreneur, piano player, international racing driver, and business coach Jonny Cooper grew his own business to 8-figures, then exited and founded, helping coaches, trainers and therapists find more of their ideal clients, more easily. He’s also the voice behind the legendary Jonny Hates Marketing Facebook Group, and swears that he really, really does hate marketing, that is. Jonny is changing the face of the coaching industry, one coach at a time. Author of Amazon 5 star reviewed book Jonny Hates Marketing: 99 Ways To Get Your Ideal Clients Chasing You Without Spending A Penny On Advertising, Working Like A Dog Or Losing Your Mind – Jonny’s ever-youthful outlook and mindset has not only helped him create a 6 figure business from scratch but has helped him overcome challenges that would crush most people.

Jonny talks about his success in the financial services industry: building a business from scratch to 8-figures, and then selling it to a company in 2003, that went bust before they could finish paying for it. Since then, Jonny “fell into” coaching through being asked for advice on growth and exit strategies by former clients and his wider network. He later created the “Client Attraction Blueprint” through which he coaches various coaches and therapists, one at a time. He attributes the spectacular success of his program to his ability to define a clear and simple marketing message, and in identifying and engaging with an audience for that message.

Let’s jump in and hear Jonny’s story in his own words…
