Walking the Talk

By Susanne Dalton Dupes In Corporate Culture with Comments Off on Walking the Talk

When Deb Schmitz and I headed to Atlanta for a business retreat in February, the last thing we expected to walk away with was an entirely new business. But as we worked with our coach, Laura West, to strategize plans for Mountain Laurel as well as our individual businesses, things began to crystallize. We didn’t know who we were because we were trying to be too many things at the same time.

Does that ring any bells for you? We were experiencing energy drain from trying to put our focus on too many objectives. You know what I am talking about if you are trying to be wife, mother, sister, daughter, charity volunteer, AND do your “job” all at the same time. It’s that multi-tasking thing we preach against.

So we decided to be the kind of leaders we want other women to be. We decided to take a big risk, merge our businesses, and really go for it. Because “going for it” is what we want you to do. Let’s face it, you will never think the time is right, or that you know enough. So, move forward anyway. Take that one next step that feels really scary to you, and then take another step.

That’s one thing we’ve been most proud of in the leadership boot camps we’ve been teaching. The women really start challenging themselves to be all they can be. And they are being really successful, getting promoted, getting elected, you name it.

So July 1, 2017, we are going for it, too. We are igniting our passions completely.

Go on this journey with us, won’t you? Look for your next email from Deb or me at Ignite.
