“That which is tomorrow is not for Now. You cannot live all future days today and then, in tomorrow, ‘Today’ will be gone. Live ‘Today’ today and leave ‘Tomorrow’ for the future. ”
Being busy is not the same as being productive. Getting everything done is not the same as getting everything done well. For people like us that are interested in being successful, we are busy. Sometimes this means we don’t get to things we should or we do get to everything but it affects us personally, showing up in health issues or stress.
How do you do all the things you want to and need to do and do them well? That is what this presentation is about. Learning how to define the system to maintain the workload, the rules that keeps you on track, and the language that helps you be comfortable saying yes to the work.
Your audience will:
- Learn the system, rules, and language of being in control of your time.
- Feel great about saying’ yes’ to the work.
- Create a ‘ToDo’ list that allows you to know you can get all the work done.

The mindset of entrepreneurship is the investment in the owner as well as the business. Business owners must become the business strategist that can see all aspects of the business, including possible investment options, understanding operations, management, finance, and the people that will make it work as they grow. Having management and employees that can also understand these strategies makes for a business that grows using intrapreneurs to fuel the business success.
In this presentation, your audience will learn why they need an entrepreneur mindset in their business, how to learn it, and what they need to let go.
Your Audience will get:
- An understanding that being an expert in a field or having a great product is only 20% of the work needed and is not enough to make a business grow.
- Dispelling the Myths and understanding the Truths that will make running a business easier.

- Understand how making money doesn’t necessarily make a profitable business.
This mindset shift will open up a business owner’s understand the skills required and their own role in their future business to make it possible for them to grow and truly become profitable.

Traditional ways of defining generational characteristics are flawed. We know not to use generalizations to judge a person, but we use them to define a generation of people. If you have ever heard someone say something like, “they are part of the ‘me first’ generation” or “they probably want a 10th place ribbon for that”, you may think that someone has an expectation that the person they are talking about is acting in an expected way because of their age. Understanding the fundamentals of someone’s upbringing helps us to understand what they have experienced in life, but it does not help us build a relationship with them if that is all we expect of them.
Barb is going to bring your audience some key insights into how identifying generations is hurting your relationship with your clients/contractors/suppliers/employees/students/leads/management/etc. and ultimately affecting all your valuable relationships.
- Look at how generations have been described in the past and what it has been used for.
- Discover what Barb sees as one of the keys to a person’s generational identity.
- Uncover how the ‘generational’ label may be used in the future.
Finally, Barb will describe the real generational identity that helps us attract and build relationships with people.
Format: 45 minute – 3 Hour, or 1 Day – training, webinar, live video, or as a facilitated workshop.
