believe

  • No matter how confused or unsure you are about your genius, it is there, it is clear. It just needs to be pulled out of you. That’s what I do.
  • There is GENIUS in EVERYONE. The eight year-old girl, the 60 year-old stockbroker, the life coach just starting out.
  • Most people have been trained to cover up their genius with corporate jargon
  • It takes only 2 hours to undo 40 years of corporate-jargon and lack of clarity on your differentiators (aka GENIUS)
  • If you’re not getting the answers, you’re not asking the right questions.
  • It is important not to edit your thoughts
  • The straightest path to business success is to follow your longing.
  • You will lose your attachment to corporate jargon when you have something better – truer – to replace it.
  • “I don’t know” is not an answer. You *do* know. You just have to give yourself permission to say it.
  • The quote that trumps all: “Your longing is the path.” – Rumi

pillars

Pillars of Genius are what make me unique, are who I am at my core and I really don’t know how to be any other way. They set me apart from the pack, and truly manifest as benefits for my Ideal Clients:

1. INSATIABLE CURIOUSITY ABOUT PEOPLE’S STORIES.

I’ve been like this my whole life. I’ve always been – and still am – the kid fascinated by hours of family stories at the kitchen table. My bookcases are stuffed with Biographies. My favourite game EVER is TableTopics (basically a deck of cards that asks engaging questions). No one is boring to me. Everyone is fascinating.

2. EXTREMELY FAST AND ACCURATE AT SEEING PATTERNS.

I love organizing, matching same with same. In university, Cost Accounting at was my highest mark at 94% (it’s all about patterns and organizing). When people tell me pieces of seemingly unrelated information, it takes me no time to drill down and find the overall pattern.

3. I HAVE NO FILTER.

Well this can be annoying or genius (as many pillars of genius can be). I’m useless at poker or office politics because I have never learned how (nor do I care to) to bluff or hold my cards to my chest. I say what I think and dish it out straight. In reality, I’ve just never really figured out how to do it any other way.

Those are my pillars of genius. Do you want to know what yours are? Start Here.
