In the last episode of the podcast, I talked about how to increase your self awareness. In this episode, Tai Goodwin visits with me to continue that discussion, but from a slightly different perspective. Tai teaches us how to live a life that is aligned with who you really are. Tai’s coaching practice focuses on entrepreneurs who are building businesses, but the importance and benefit of being self aware is relevant for all of us.
Being willing to take the steps to move into what you want has been a theme on the podcast. Today we talked a lot about self awareness and being willing to pivot or make change.
I asked Tai if she only had 5 minutes, what she would want my audience to know and she answered:
I particularly loved Tai’s thoughts on expertise as it relates to helping others. Knowing something doesn’t make you an expert, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There are levels of expertise.
How to Live a Life Aligned With Who You Really Are:
Tai says you’re bankable if you love the work you’re doing, you love the clients you’re getting, and you’re completely joyous about the money you get paid.
- The authority renaissance going on in business building
- How the ‘wizard’ behind the screen is messing with a lot of people
- The dangers of being transparent
- Tai’s pet peeve about email lists
- Why we tend to focus on tasks instead of principles
- How to tell if you’re Bankable
- Whether you can get burnt out doing something you love
