Today I get to chat with Leonie Dawson about her multi-million dollar business. I’m really excited because some of the wisdom she shares might come as a welcome surprise to heart-centered entrepreneurs.
In order to really amp up her business, Leonie shares that she had to give up…her email. With a booming business, it was actually a huge release for her to step away entirely from the customer support side and focus her efforts in other areas.
To be able to do this successfully, without sacrificing the needs of your customer, it’s important to put into place a full customer support system. By using project management software and empowering her team to take over all communications, Leonie ensured that her customers’ needs would continue to be met after she stepped away from emails.
In this interview, Leonie also shares about her right brain planning and why it’s so important to set real goals for your business … and revisit them often. One of the statistics she quotes is that 80% of people in the world don’t even think about goals. 16% do think of goals, but don’t write them down. A tiny 3% of people write their goals down, but then forget about them.
Statistically, only 1% write them down and revisit/review them on a consistent basis.
The highest achieving people in the world are in that 1%.
…I get chills just thinking about those statistics!
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with Leonie Dawson – definitely an amazing woman and an inspiration for those of us who are heart-centered and want to use our impact on the world in a more positive, sustainable way.
