#ProTip, if it is not working, STOP IT! Try something different. I see the same people fighting the same battles with the same weapons day in and day out. Quit it. Your whining is really wearing me down.

Step back. Stop thinking you know what you are doing. Get a coach. Get a consultant. Get a mentor. Find someone else with a different perspective and different skills to talk to. FOR FUCK’S SAKE STOP DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND CRYING ABOUT HOW IT DOESN’T WORK!

Let me tell you, I’ve been a business coach for decades. I help people get their own businesses going. You guys know that, all of you come to me with your questions about how to do this or that. And I know the answers, right? I have massive knowledge and experience in this area.

BUT, when I found myself stuck in my own business, the FIRST thing I did, as soon as I could, was find other consultants, advisors, to come in and help me take a fresh look. Stop whining about how nothing is working and DO THAT.

Get some other people to come in and tell you how you are doing everything wrong and LISTEN. And do what they say. Get your own ego out of your way (that took me a bit to master). Nobody expects you to know everything. Nobody is going to look down on you because you don’t have all the answers. People will respect you MORE if they see you listening to the wise advice of other experts.

(PS: No, I am NOT pitching you to hire me as your business coach. I don’t do that anymore.)
