I am a firm believer that there are two types of worker mentalities in the workplace. One is the worker and one is the leader.
A worker will show up every day and work their designated hours, seek nothing more from their place of employment, and may often complain about the work load. A leader shows up looking for ways for advancement, offer fewer excuses
and generally the leader is not part of the crowd.
A worker will sometimes complain about the tasks that needs to be completed, the work that is required and the
management staff. The complaining worker has to have an audience around when voicing their opinion and often is
inclined to tell management on how to run the organization differently and more effectively.
The leader will meet and exceed the expectations of their position, look for other ways to be a team player, and understands that to carry out something different you have to be do something different.
The difference begins in the response.
Ask yourself: Are you a worker? Or are you a leader?
The answer to this question will decide if you are an entrepreneur, a business owner, or a nonprofit leader.
It is my belief that if you are a complainer at work you will not service your customers properly! Your focus will not be that the customer is always right, nor will it be focused on providing the best possible service. It will instead
be focused on the amount of work you will have to do for just one client, or focusing on the reasons why you make not like the client instead of providing them a great service.
There is absolutely no problem with being a worker however, ask yourself if you can affectively service your customer and or community with a workers attitude?
Today, I want you to keep track of your responses to those around you at work. Are you part of the crowd? What does your speech say about you?

Remember that song? Of course you do! Friends are awesome! However, when it comes to friends and business sometimes things are NOT that awesome!
Take a look at the following scenario:
You and your friend have talked hours on end about the great business idea that you both have. A decision has to be made on how it is going to look, how everyone’s way life will change and how much better it’s going to be.
There is a BIG difference between being friends and being business partners. If your friend is a procrastinator now, they will be one when you are business together!
If they are too tired from work to work on the business – they will always be too tired.
Some questions to ask you and your potential partner:
1. Who is going to be the final decision maker?
2. Who will actually do the work of the business?
3. Who is in charge of the money and who will handle the finances?
4. What happens when one person is not pulling their weight in the business?
These questions are not meant to break up friendships however; it is a guide to help open discussions on important topics.
If you need help having that difficult conversation schedule your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION so that I can give you some pointers on how to get started.
REMEMBER YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS AND COMMITMENT IS NOT THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE
How many have us have said any of the following? :
· I want everything to be perfect
· I am a perfectionist and if it’s not perfect then I can’t do it?
· I need to have everything done before I ask someone to help me
Often times, using the statements above is just an excuse for not accomplish something, it is a fear of actually having to do something and then to be criticized for what you have done.
I can absolutely guarantee you that you will never start! Perfect, when you’re starting a business or a nonprofit, does not exist.
Whenever we start something we have to be open to making mistakes and accepting that things may be less perfect. The important part is just STARTING!
Waddell Consulting Services can help you get started and understand that you can achieve goals on your way to perfect.
Family, Friend, Co-worker, Neighbors you can use a ton of names but eventually you will need to ask someone a question and unfortunately the family and friend sector is NOT going to have the most reliable answer.
Consulting or business coaching offers you the opportunity to talk with a professional who can objectively discuss your idea, give you feedback and suggestions. I have been through the process and I will have answers to your question.
Coaching allows you to ask any question, give you direction and most of all you are accountable to someone. Often times, we have great ideas of starting a business or a nonprofit but when it comes to implementing them, we fall short!
I have been there! I understand the frustration of knowing that you could truly do something great but being so exhausted that mentally and physically you don’t have the energy to complete it.
Waddell Consulting Services can offer that one-on-one session that you need to get your ideas started. Or perhaps you need someone who will hold you accountable as well as give that extra push you need to carry out your dreams.
It is my passion and it brings me great joy to watch other people succeed and to give some helpful information and direction along the way.
I look forward to listening to you and providing the direction and support you need to get started on making your ideas a reality!
