Sincerity is a form of power. And it builds precious, precious TRUST. In this episode, I’m walking you through 7 tips that can foster a business of understanding, deeper bonds, and solutions you couldn’t see when you were hiding out. Sincerity trumps a coverup any day.
Let’s take a break from shadow work and relationship healing to tawk about tawkin’––in public.
Team D is fully virtual, with the team in five cities (and 3 countries).
We’re business, we’re heart, we’re productive, we’re in close touch. Here’s a bit of how we do it…
I know that your heart burns with sacred love.
I know you. Because I’ve been you. I am you. I also know how to turn procrastination into a power move. And I know how to keep waking up without beating ourselves up. (Steady devotion. Deep compassion. Joy leaning.)
Stay with me.
After one more trip around the sun, here are a few of my learnings (some of which came down like honey, others, like a sledgehammer. #reallife ):
A good personality test can help reveal the innermost workings of your psyche. Anyone who applies for a job with Team D takes these three tests. And, they’re kind of… fun…
Here’s what happens when I do a speaking gig. Every time. I try to dispense some luminous #truthbomb and how-to advice — because that’s what I’m there to do…
All the ideas, the seemingly competing goals, the various opportunities, and the compelling projects…What to do, which to choose, where to start? Right here.
When Team Danielle jams on long term vision we use these 3 spectacularly simple questions to get the planning party started.
For even the most assured and self-referencing person, legalities and money matters are major character testers.
When it comes to innovating… Be willing to start over. Be willing to make other people uncomfortable. Be willing to lose money. Be willing to…
My heart has a long list of things of things that I would like someone else to revolutionize.
Grieve for your ideas, the ones that will never see the light of day. Pruned. Aborted. Not meant to be. Under-resourced. Not as shiny as all your other ideas.
When you’re the start-up beggar, it’s tough to be choosy. But remember the rules of nature: otherwise cute and friendly animals tend to get vicious when their territory or uh, nuts are threatened.
I give a zip-zap run down of what I think is up in the industry right now. I also talk about generosity + entrepreneurship, and the power of telling your own story.
Why we’ve become too politically corrected when it comes to giving our opinions and the intersection between sovereignty and collaboration.
The paradigms of collaboration, the pain of being edited, and creating a culture of yes.
No one can tell my story or share my acumen like I can. My experience is what I sell and the more I show up, the better.
Kiss some more ass. Offer to work unpaid for two weeks. Give your ideas away for free–chances are you’ll be asked to execute those ideas.
Are you, or do you know of anyone who is “technically” unqualified but have managed to rock their career based sheer talent and moxy?
Secretly, I’m afraid we won’t raise the money. But it’s okay. I can plow through that fear. We’ll raise the money, and everything will be okay, right?
While you’re still tripping, imagine hanging with the Super Heroes of your industry. Assume that you are their contemporary.
I “get to people” by being as real as I can possibly be. Authenticity is magnetic, after all. I claim my place as a teacher. I maintain my role as a student.
