I was recently featured by Boston’s Mooring Advisory Group in the article Hanneke Antonelli, Life Coach and Author, you can read the full article here.
In my new book, The Up Level Project, I go more in depth to these three tips to help you on your path to sustainable growth that will reap higher profits and more freedom. These are some of my top tips for business success.
What’s your best hiring tip/secret?
It’s natural to want to hire mini-me’s ( i.e., people who are similar to you.) But when it comes to creating and building an innovative team, it’s imperative that you hire your weaknesses. Hire people who love doing the tasks you hate and who are rock stars at the stuff you have zero aptitudes or interest in.
Where do you find inspiration to stay motivated?
Through my gardening hobby. Tending to my plants and watching them come out of hibernation fills my cup and gives me a daily reminder that I’m exactly where I need to be right now and to trust the process.
What habits have helped make you successful?
Making time to work on my mindset every day:
I used to suffer from depression and I vowed that I was going to do whatever it took to get better. I share more about my journey out of that dark and scary place in my forthcoming book, The Up Level Project: Your Guide to Unlocking Higher Profits While Creating More Freedom, available now!
Make rest and play a priority:
This is something I have to remind myself of and work to incorporate often. Society sends a skewed message that rest and play should only be awarded as a reward for all our hard work.
In my experience working with experienced service-based business owners, that’s how you stunt your growth, drain your valuable energy, and eventually burn out.
Because I have experienced this myself, now rest and play are non-negotiables and part of my resiliency routine, and as a business coach. Thus, I help my clients free up time for it in their busy schedules.
