Many business owners start their business because they are good at what they do. They are great technicians, with little experience leading and managing people and even less as a business owner, working in the business rather than on it.

Shirley and her guests open their hearts and share their experiences as well as proven systems and strategies to inspire, educate and support you to be able to create your ideal business lifestyle, whether that means being able to comfortably step away from the business and know it will still run smoothly or if you want to grow and expand but don’t know how.
#088 Improve Your Business by Becoming a Soulful Leader
Soulful leaders are interested in motivating from the bottom up, not from the top down. They know who cleans their office, who mows the lawn, who fixes their computers, who serves the food; they know the secretaries and the receptionists. They speak to everyone, and no person is seen as less valuable than anyone else. Soulful people lead balanced lives, work with intensity, play with abandonment, but they also know how to turn down the dial and simply enjoy life.
