“I jump from a plane every morning”
“How do get the courage to do that? Metaphorically speaking, where do you get your parachute?”
“I don’t get one. I just flap really hard”
My guest today is Carolyn Cole, the Host of the global Boomtank Business Show, a podcast for sharp female entrepreneurs and cool guys who support them. For nearly two decades, she was a Fortune 100 and Fortune 200 Senior Corporate Trial Attorney. Now she makes the case on behalf of our business dreams – and happiness too.
We talk about "prepared visibility", the courage to take action and how different are the challenges in the beginning vs. later in business.
HIGHLIGHTS, QUOTES, RESOURCES [episode 5]
Carolyn on courage to take action:
“Don’t dream fantastic things, take action on fantastic things. Unleash the innovation with a business plan attached to it.” (Tweet that)
- Appropriate vulnerability and appropriate exposure
- The message trifecta of a clear “who am I, what do I offer, how do I say it”. If you have all that it’s OK to be nervous, you'd be fine.
Carolyn on Prepared Visibility:
“Just do it” kamikaze-style could be really good from a personal development perspective. But I’m asking people to be more precise about it.” (Tweet that)
- Why is “showing up” rather than hiding behind the mic works better today than 2 or 3 years ago.
- Charting your business journey “The bottom rung is crowded, but there's SO much room at the top”
Resources we mention in the episode:
Carolyn: “Visibility is the lifeblood of your business. Take action every day where you’re gaining visibility, you’re unleashing your creativity, and you have the technology to support that”. (Click to tweet)
