Ask Yourself One Question: Are you ready?

On Monday, Kevin heard me talk about the five strategies of C.H.A.I.R. Leadership during the virtual Dream. Believe. Create. Career and Business Summit. And it changed him.

He was faced with a tough situation this week – he was doubted, questioned as not being good enough, and almost walked away. At that moment, he knew he had a choice: F.E.A.R. – Face Everything and Run OR Face Everything and Rise.

He heard me say you have to champion yourself if you want to show up differently.

And he did! He overcame his fear and championed himself (the “C” in C.H.A.I.R.).

He rose to meet the moment explaining why this person needed him and his expertise, and that in fact, he is more than good enough. He was willing to walk away rather than compromise his value.

Have you been in a similar situation?
🤔 Where your value has been questioned?
🤔When you were told your experience was not good enough?
🤔When someone caused you to doubt yourself?

You are not alone.

I can help you. I have faced the same challenges, questions, and adversity in my career, and I overcame ALL of them.


✔ Because I knew the value and contributions that I offer.
✔Because today’s “no” is tomorrow’s “yes” and I was not deterred from my goal.
✔Because I don’t let others project their insecurities on me.

Listen, these strategies work. C.H.A.I.R is about changing lives – one person at a time.

Are you ready to take the first step?
