  1. As you gain success in carrying out the activities of your business, you may get the opportunity to turn that success into a coaching business for others wanting to emulate your path. 
  2. You'll move forward faster when you stop letting excuses get in your way, and when you realize you already have everything you need to grow.
  3. Be honest with yourself about why you may be overcomplicating things. What are you trying to avoid? 
  4. When opportunity knocks, be sure you have the space available to take advantage of it. 
  5. Pick up the book "Unthink" to identify and reverse patterns you may have developed that are no longer serving you.
  6. Be willing to be a work-in-progress.
