Book Report: Good Leaders Ask Great Questions by John C. Maxwell

“The one thing you can do to have the greatest impact on your leadership potential is to be intentional every day about becoming equipped to lead.” – John C. Maxwell

Are you a leader? Do you want to be?

Maybe a better question is, do you have people who look up to or follow you?

Guess what?!?! That means you ARE a leader!!! Congrats!!

The funny thing about leadership, usually others see it in us before we can see it in ourselves. I’m a GREAT follower! However, if the situation calls for it I’m able to step in and lead as needed, but I never really considered myself a leader.

One of the things I’m learning about myself through this awesome personal growth program called owning my own home based business, is that I can be a great leader…I just need to sharpen my tools. I’ve heard that network marketing is personal growth with a paycheck, and it’s so true! Who doesn’t want to get paid to learn, right?!?! My friend Charlotte says that God uses the draw of working toward promotions to bring us closer to Him and grow us into the people He always knew we could be. He knows us so well, doesn’t He?

John’s book here has been very helpful, he has so many out there to choose from! I loved how he touched on a ton of different leadership topics in the section on questions leaders ask of him. He also talks about asking yourself questions, that is really where we all need to start.

Isn’t it funny how all of these books I’ve posted about so far have required a bit of self reflection? Coincidence? I think not. Self reflection is something I didn’t really make time for previously. I’m finding so much value in it though! If we can’t lead ourselves to success, we can’t lead anyone else there either. It must begin with me.

What areas of self leadership are you working on? What do you find most challenging as a leader? Most rewarding? I’d love to know! Share in the comments below!

How to Make Sure 2017 ROCKS! Part 2

Welcome back for part 2 of our series!! The video I made for this week includes all of the resources and inspiration for my current system in case you want to go through the learning and growth process like I did.

I highly recommend all of these resources, but am not being paid by any of them (I also did not receive free product for review purposes…that would have been cool though.) haha!

How to Make Sure 2017 ROCKS!! Part 1

I LOVE organization, planners, productivity tools, notebooks, pens, cute stickers, washi tape…pretty much anything office supply related. haha!!

As we start a new year I want to share a few tips, tricks and tools that I’ve found that help me to stay (somewhat) organized, get more things done and (hopefully) have a more productive and balanced year in 2017.

Here are a couple of short videos I made to give you an overview of the tools that I use and  one to show you my “command center.” Be watching for the rest of this 4 part series including an overview of my system and how I use all of these tools to manage my home, home business and my sanity.

I’d love to hear any tips you might have as well! Drop them in the comments below!
