What is your Leadership Super Power?


In this episode, Virginia and Jake Carlson discuss:

  • Reduce distractions, delegate time and energy sucks and doubling down on what Jake does best.
  •  It all comes down to your "why".
  • Why is the law of urgency so valuable?
  • Business today, especially service based, is a lot of repackaging of ideas.

Key Takeaways:

  •  FOCUS- following that one course that leads inevitably to success.
  •  I know my "number", the amount I need to bring in monthly to live the lifestyle that we have determined for the family.
  • When you back is against the wall, that is when you fight the strongest and hardest.
  • Real breakthrough comes when you recognize your potential, combine it with passion and set a sense of urgency to the completion.
