Leslie Ferraro is a Marketer at heart. She was co-in-charge of consumer products and interactive media. It didn’t work out. We didn’t need a co-chair.

To see the brave, look at those who can forgive.

Organizational Courage

August 1984, at a Washington State University apartment complex. We are waiting to be sag wagon drivers for a cross-state drive – and a cross-state lift for us to start our Honeymoon bike ride from Seattle back here to Pullman, Washington. Our honeymoon began 14 months after the wedding day.

Organizational Courage.

What is it?

It’s identical to personal courage and it starts at the top.

It has to start at the top.

It’s the founder’s story.

And after the founder is gone, the successor has to inspire the organization as if every day is day one.

If you can’t be on fire with this, you aren’t living your purpose, you are existing (probably decently well financially) for a paycheck.

Yes, obviously, this applies to work and home simultaneously.

Convincing yourself?

Looking across 8 lanes of I-4 to the Disney Casting Center.

Convincing yourself?

Not really.

Convincing others?

Double nope.

i may be your one true hope for a coach who will help you see clearly what you do (blindspots), and what you think no one else notices (yet they see it clearly). i can help you get better at what you’re already good at, which is your habits.

My expertise and the thing that changed everything for me, is asking better questions more often. Questions that people either never ask, or questions that make people put their head down and hope the teacher doesn’t call on them.

In parenting circles it’s called tough love.

You’re great at habits.

Create better habits – get better results.

It’s that simple.

Be brave enough to inspire yourself

Be brave enough to inspire yourself.

Given the choice, why wouldn’t we?

Fear?

The unknown.

Uncertainty.

Pain?

Find a million ways.

For example, one (of the million) way i do it: recalling the three days with Dana, Christopher, Will (then 4) and Christopher’s two teenagers from a prior marriage.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Fail like it’s day one.

Day one?

Yes.

The day you officially became a company.

Run your company like you’re hungry to succeed beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

Like you were on day one.
