I’ve been coaching business leaders for about a decade now, and over the years I’ve noticed an unfortunate theme pop up again and again. It’s something that holds people back in both business and in life:
People want something to change, but they don’t want to make a change.
You know what I’m talking about! You’ve probably been there yourself. Maybe you’ve wanted to lose weight, get out of debt, or make new friends, but you don’t want to eat healthier, spend less money, or leave your house! You want to see different results without actually doing anything differently.

In this episode, Rachel Hollis and I talk about:
