We’ve all heard the old adage, ‘If you want something done right, do it yourself.’ But if your business has plateaued, and it’s time to build out a team to reach the next level of growth, you need a new mindset.
So, how do you shift from being a solopreneur to seeing yourself as a leader?
Deb Erickson is the Business Mindset Expert behind The ICAN Institute, a training and coaching platform that helps network marketing entrepreneurs grow their teams, increase sales and rank up. Deb leveraged an understanding of neuroscience to develop the brain retraining tools the women on her own network marketing teams needed to be successful, and in 1995, she launched ICAN to share her neuro-tools and mindset training system with direct sales consultants worldwide.
On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Deb joins Anjel to explain how coaching basketball helped her realize that women need to be encouraged differently. She introduces us to the force-flow continuum and describes how women thrive in doing business from a place of action in flow. Listen in for Deb’s insight on interrupting negative thinking and learn how to develop the mindset of a leader as you step into the next level of growth.
