Right-Brain Resource Roundup: Win a copy of The Boss of You!

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Emira Mears co-author of the fabulous book, The Boss of You. Creative cohorts Emira and Lauren dish out sage advice about building and expanding a business. In addition to all of the detailed and practical information, I love that they also share their personal experiences about what they’ve learned from running their company for so many years.

If you don’t have this book, it’s a must have and here’s your chance to win a copy – Yay!  We’re doing a joint give-away, so you can win The Boss of You here on my blog and a copy of The Right-Brain Business Plan on Emira and Lauren’s blog. Double yay!

Both books The Boss of You and The Right-Brain Business Plan advocate defining success on your own terms. To win a signed copy of The Boss of You simply share in the comments how you define success for your business (new or established) and we’ll pick a random winner on April 8th. Good luck!

    I define success for my business as a holistic thing: on the inside it’s about satisfying my personal values and ethics; on the outside it’s about sharing my knowledge and ensuring that I am financially secure and the business is paying itself off.

    Success is when others are inspired by what I create while having a blast.

    I define success for my business in dollars & cents … profit margins!

    I define success as providing my skills and talents to an ideal client who appreciates me and my services and expresses that with an equal exchange of money or barter. Success is when we both feel good about what we are bringing to the table!

    Day. Interior. You are at your computer, cup of favorite tea steaming beside the keyboard. Brainwaves come together over airwaves to create happiness waves.

    I would define my business as successful when I no longer have to work in the corporate world….when wearing shoes is optional….when my world is filled with things that smell good and feel good and help make other’s world a better place to live.

    Success is accomplishing my goals.

    My Beloved Father who passed away 5 yrs ago always taught me that owning your own business was in itself being successful. He owned a Print Shop all his life, he lost it in Cuba when Castro took over so he lost it all. Then came to the U.S. With a 8 month pregnant wife & 3 kids & no money at 42, his drive to succeed helped him start all over working one full time job & part time he started his business again, I grew up all my life with him admiring him & helping him, as a kid I pretended to work for him & as soon as I was able too I worked with him full time while in college full time. I worked with him for 15 yrs as his right hand helping him run the business. His biggest pride was that I would inherit the business someday & grow it even more! Unfortunately due to his demetia & some bad business moves we list everything after 20 yrs of business ( it was already making Atleast 2 million a year). I had no choice but to find another job to pay my mortgage but my Daddy at 70 was limited it what he could do. Believe it or not he started again with a little print shop out of his garage & basically worked until 2 weeks before his passing.
    Success to me is a person who loves what they do so much that Nomadder what the ups & downs are the keep striving for the best.
    I want to follow in his footsteps & build my Coaching practice!

    I define success as personal freedom. For me, that means the freedom to use my time in a manner that allows me the ability to enjoy my life to the fullest while doing that which I love. I love being creative. It is not something I ever seek to “retire” from like a “job.” My success is to live a creatively productive life while doing work that serves. That brings me joy, too. Service may mean making a piece of artwork that brings light or a smile or some sense of whimsy to its new owner. Service may mean communicating and clarifying information that helps people understand complex ideas assisting them in making more informed decisions. Service can be as simple as an encouraging word or a “thank you” to a pleasant barista. Service could be buying a friend a cup of coffee and having time to listen- because my work is not a 9-5 job… it is an expression of who I am. Sure… that involves making money. There’s nothing but good that comes from that exchange- for me and for my patrons and clients. Success to me is living this one life on terms that agree with who I am, while being able to take care of the basics, keeping body and soul together. And if there’s more than that left over, all to the better- Road trip! 🙂

    I define on my own terms. Based on what I value in my life, not anyone else’s, by choosing my going in the direction of what I want, and living it. By pursuing my passion.

  • Shenee April 5, 2011, 11:30 am

    Success is feeling confident that I have something great to offer and that I am worth what I am charging. It is all about feeling so happy to wake up to work and getting that amazing internal recipe for awesome so that everything aligns perfectly.

    It is exciting to see this book give away, since I’ve had The Boss of You on my Amazon wishlist for quite some time now!

    I do not currently have a business, but I am taking baby steps towards my dream of opening my own creative business! I define success, at the very least, as following my passion and doing my best to live the life I feel I was meant to lead!
