Take care of your body every day.


heather“When I don’t move my body in a way that I enjoy, my business suffers, and I become less productive and a lot less creative. If I make sure I get some movement or exercise in every day, I am more focused, happy and engaged. This is non-negotiable time that I add to my calendar, and I don’t schedule meetings on top of it. I travel a lot for my business, so I have a membership at a yoga studio that I can go to in other cities.”

Heather Nichols, JCF, entrepreneur, business expert, and transformational coach who helps other entrepreneurs create successful businesses.




Forget about yesterday.


laleh“The past is for the history books.

The choice is mine–move forward or go back. My experience has been that most people spend majority of their time focusing on yesterday instead of looking ahead and creating something new.”

–Laleh Alemzadeh-Hancock, JCF, CEO of Belapemo, a professional services company specializing in operational excellence, change management and leadership development for individuals, Fortune 500 executives, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, athletes and veterans.
