Avoid the piles of bricks | GB28

Today, we talk all about that craptastic feeling of being buried. Underwater. Crushed by the weight of big ideas, neverending task lists, and elephant-sized goals. First, we’ll talk about what this really means and the ways in which this feeling tends to show up, along with a little on how we tend to behave as a result. Then we’ll talk about a simple way to handle these moments better. And finally, we’ll wrap up with a healthy pep talk.

When you’re failing, learn how to ask the right questions | GB27

Today’s episode is all about how to not shoot yourself in the foot right out the gate. I’m gonna break down one very common mistake that newbies (and non-newbies) make and how to fix it. Today, we learn how to ask for help and guidance in a way that doesn’t completely fuck up your chances of getting what you ACTUALLY need, which is respect.

Why overdelivery is the enemy of getting rehired | GB26

Why overdelivery is the enemy of getting rehired | GB26

Today’s episode is all about why over-delivering is a really good way to not get asked back for more work. We all think doing our best and giving more than people asked for is a good thing. And in some ways, it is. Things like adding extra value to something you do is fine. What I’m talking about is when you completely blow the scope of what was asked of you out of the water. It’s one of the hardest things to identify when you’re trying to figure out why no one seems to hire you twice.

So it turns out that your business is not about you. It’s about the people you most want to serve. Today we explore how (and why) to set your ego aside so you can build your business based on the RIGHT factors, rather than your deepest desires.
