190. Landing Your Dream Opportunity Through Powerful Relationships | Ken Coleman

May 20, 2019 | 0 comments

Everything you want in your career comes down to ONE thing – the relationships that you have.

So when we neglect our relationships, we are limiting our own ability to accomplish our goals and live extraordinary lives.

But you don’t have to settle for anything less than extraordinary, and as an extra bonus, cultivating great relationships will just make your personal and business life that much better! That’s why we are excited to share this conversation with Ken Coleman, one of the Dave Ramsey personalities and the author of The Proximity Principle: The Proven Strategy That Will Lead to a Career You Love.

We also want to know how you are doing with the goals that you set at the beginning of the year. Do you need to think bigger, or are you falling behind, or are you a little unclear on what you actually want? Wherever you may fall, one thing we know is that you’d benefit from a reset.

Do you run a small business?

Small business owners wear a lot of hats. Some of those hats feel incredible to wear. However, filing taxes and running payroll… well, for most of us, they don’t feel great and they’re not our ONE thing. That’s where Gusto comes in to help you make payroll, taxes, and HR easy. So ask yourself, it time to take off some of your hats?
