Robin Waite on Show #135: Setting Fearless Goals
Robin Waite, founder of Fearless Business, pivoted from running a successful digital marketing business into training other entrepreneurs on how to be better in business with his Business Growth Accelerator. Robin helps coaches, consultants, and freelancers on how to attract more clients and grow their business by focusing on their mindset, goals, and business plans while helping them to gain clarity on what they want to achieve and how to get there. Robin is also the author of five bestselling books, most recently Take Your Shot: How to Grow Your Business, Attract More Clients, and Make More Money, which focuses on the importance of setting goals and fostering a positive mindset.   Robin joins me today to share how he transitioned from digital marketing into fearless business coaching by giving himself time to consider why his old business wasn’t serving him any longer and the changes he needed to make. He discusses the perks of working remotely, how he integrates his work and family life, and how he stays focused on his overarching goals. Robin also shares the tools he uses to stay productive and why he occasionally takes a day away from technology to remain energised and remember the big picture. “Sometimes we set big goals for ourselves, but we don’t actually believe we can achieve them. That creates fear, then the fight, flight, or fear response kicks in and most of us just procrastinate.” Robin Waite This Week on The Power to Live More Podcast: How Robin helps clients through his three-pronged Business Accelerator ProgrammeWhy Robin values being an entrepreneur and how it helps him integrate his work and business lifeHow to identify lag indicators in your business and why you need to pay attention to themThe importance of self-awareness for business ownersWhy you need to set business goals and put strategies in place to achieve those goalsThe importance of trusting your gutWhy you need to build activities that get you closer to your goalWhy it’s critical to avoid underestimating the process of setting goals and planning your routeRobin’s favorite apps for managing his workloadWhy Robin loves to listen to audio books and podcastsHow Robin copes on days when it all goes wrongWhy he loves surfing and cycling, and how they reinvigorate him Resources Mentioned: Diary Detox by Paul HolbrookTraffic and Funnels Show podcastBuilt to Sell: Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You by John WarrillowGo for No!
