"Life's not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it's about doing, being and becoming." - Mike Dooley

Happy New Year!

I hope your new year has started off well and you have been able to stay healthy.

Besides trying to stay healthy, it’s a very busy time in my world - I have been spending the last few weeks helping entrepreneurs set their goals and establish strategies to meet those goals. It’s an exciting time -  full of hope, excitement and nerves.

Entrepreneurs find themselves asking: "Will the strategy work?" "Will I fail?" "Will I succeed? How will that change my life and am I ready for it?"

As a coach, I know the importance of being super curious.  And that curiosity starts with asking really good questions to flesh out potential problems and address those concerns. So, I thought I would provide you with some questions for you to think about when you are determining your goals, creating a strategy to reach those goals, and establishing action steps to see the strategy through. I hope they help. Take the challenge below! 

I’m curious about something else too – What’s your word of the year? You've probably guessed mine – Curiosity!

So let's get curious! How can you make 2022 your best year yet? 

Taking the LEAP with you!


Solid strategic plans, strong work relationships, high morale and improved performance are all byproducts of good questions.

This potent communication tool can help you discover important information about your work, yourself, your associates, your customers—and create insights that otherwise might have remained hidden.

Below are just a few questions that can have powerful effects on your work and life. Ask your questions without leading, prompting or interrupting, and suspend any assumptions. And then be sure to LISTEN to the answers.

1. What is it that you’d like to see accomplished and how do you see it happening? 

2. What are your thoughts? Your concerns?

3. What’s the most important priority to you with this and why?

4. What would you like to see improved?

5. Can you help me understand that a little better?

6. What’s in the way of improved performance? How can I change that?

7. If I could change one thing in my life/business that would have the greatest impact, what would it be?

8. What prevents me from being able to place more focus on this?

9. What self-limiting fears, thoughts or actions do I want to leave behind?

10. Are my actions today compatible with what I wish to leave behind as a legacy? 



Take time to reflect on and answer the above questions.

Make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit in a comfortable spot where you won't be interrupted, and go through each question.
When you have finished, review your answers and come up with your word for 2022! I would love it if you would share it with me!
