Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Are You Walking Your Walk?
Raising the Barr is a weekly memo, which is always pithy, powerful and succinct. It focuses on innovative ideas by maximizing your life and business while leveraging strategy, content, technology and the web, to help you transform the success.
This week’s reflection point: How often do you talk with an expert only to then realize that they are great at giving advice rather than following it? In other words, they either have not implemented or do not use their own expertise.
For example: The contractor who has never finished remodeling his own house or the software developer who is not using his own software. One other such example is the business strategist who has not yet formulated and implemented the proper strategy for his or her own business.
This reminds me of the old story about the cobbler’s children having no shoes. My assertion here is that if your focus is on helping your clients thrive, you better demonstrate that your own business is thriving. And the reason it is thriving is because you have taken and applied your own advice.
This week’s tip: So ask yourself this simple question: Are you walking your own walk? If not, it’s time you do!
