Too much.



”The most important single thing is to focus obsessively on the customer. Our goal is to be earth’s most customer-centric company.” Jeff Bezos

I hope you had a good weekend!
I did the same thing you are doing right now.

Too much.
You don’t get to the end goal by walking, chewing gum, patting your head, rubbing your tummy and skipping rope.
You don’t.

How hard is it to pat your head and rub your stomach?
It’s hard.

That’s why it’s funny to watch someone try.
Only a very few people have that ability.

So stop.

What’s the point?
Are you building a business to be funny?

No, I bet not.

Build your business one step at a time.

One focus.
One goal.
Bit by bit.

Whatever it is you're doing go step by step, bit by bit. 


And then celebrate.

Lead Ladies Lead.

--> Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man.   How?  He's customer obsessed.  Look at the depth of Amazon's customer service.   Next, they are opening a cashier-less convenience store!

--> Apple's CEO Tim Cook says he wouldn't let his kid use social media but that learning to code is more important than learning a second language.  

--> On the note of keeping your kids away from social media, Pyramid Schemes are targeting teens on Snapchat! 

Manage This.

--> Have you heard of SMART goals?  Essentially you are turning your goals into systems.  That's when you achieve.

--> Take this quiz from Harvard Business Review on How to be Happier at Work. 


--> Give yourself a break.  Does your family dinner consist of rotisserie chicken, salad, and some bread?  You're not alone.  Rotisserie chickens are taking over!  Last year alone Costco sold over 87 million rotisserie chickens.  The HB and I did the math... that meant approximately 52,000 chickens were sold in California every day from Costco!  #CONVENIENCEISIN 

Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie.
