Recently, a colleague asked me about the future of my brand and business. She pointed out that I have an entertainment factor because of all my singing and slang! That’s just who I am: big personality. But it’s what she said next that led to the biggest “Aha” moment of my business.
I’m thankful for this truth teller’s presence in my life because what she said next was the kick in the rear I needed. My successful and respected colleague told me, “I had no idea how smart you were until I went through Sales School.” Unsure what she meant, I asked for clarification. My friend said, “I knew your people adored you, but I really had no clue the value you could add to my business.”
Talk about a wake-up moment for me! My brand and business had become more based on personality than results.
There’s a hidden lesson here for your business. Surround yourself with smart people who are willing to tell you the truth. Your plans, dreams, and bank account will forever thank you for having those people around.
