The holiday season is upon us. It is not too late to treat yourself, and your team, with a nice end-of-the year gift, and start 2020 on the right foot.
Below are my book recommendations:
Next books on my reading list: This is Marketing by Seth Godin, The Chimp Paradox by Dr. Steve Peters, and Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More than IQ by Daniel Goleman.
Take care of yourself
As a CrossFit addict and a CF-L1 Trainer, I must emphasize the importance of exercising regularly. Being healthy and in good physical shape will significantly improve your efficiency at work and at home.
I was not really taking care of myself before I found this sport. It has transformed my life, to the point where I know I am not going back to the previous me. I feel stronger, I am more relaxed, I think sharper, and I work faster.
There is no age to be the fittest version of yourself.
Stop procrastinating and buy yourself a membership for the most suitable physical activity for you, something you can perform minimum 3 times per week. It should not feel like a burden. Instead, it should be the moment to be with yourself, forget everything else, and simply enjoy the challenge.
The secret weapon
I will conclude by the best gift you can reward yourself with: A notebook and a pen! Entrepreneurs' minds are always full of ideas and things to do. Go back to the basics: write them down to get them out of your brain, archive them, and free up mental space for new stuff.
Enjoy the holiday season!
PS: Of course business coaching is an excellent gift to put yourself on the right tracks for the new year. Training courses, in Leadership for example, are a nice way to reward your team while improving their skills. Book a time with me to talk further about it.

One of my first entrepreneur clients had reached a point where his company was stuck because of a lack of qualified people. Money was no issue, but he was too much involved in operations to take a step back and see the situation. He loved project management and could not resolve to give it up because he thought the customer service quality would suffer.
Both business owners had attained some sort of a plateau, where action was required to start a new growth cycle. They needed a plan, which they could not come up with because they were overwhelmed with day-to-day operations.
Do their stories sound familiar to you?
Entrepreneurs usually have to do everything at the early business stages, and do not necessarily realize that their responsibilities must evolve with growth. Focusing on quality is important, but having a solid structure where people will strive for even better quality is essential. There comes a time where entrepreneurs' role has to switch from doing the work by themselves to building the business under them to do the work. By not letting go, entrepreneurs may become the main bottleneck of their own companies.
I'd like to suggest 3 options to tackle that challenge:

20 years of working in business management has taught me the importance of mapping out the company’s journey. ⅔ of that time spent in the market research industry has provided me with one key tool: asking questions. Successful entrepreneurs understand their weaknesses and acknowledge they don’t know everything. They know that with the right questions comes the right answers.
Often, we get stuck in a situation because we aren’t asking ourselves the questions that lead to the right answers. This video will provide you with 4 practical steps to help you think clearly and ask the right questions in any situation.
So, are you asking the right questions?
