Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview, is Sara Speicher who is an entrepreneur, business coach, and a lady who has a journey to where she is today that could be turned into a movie.
She first arrived in the United States from Slovenia not with a dream to make it on the corporate ladder, and rise to the top of the business world.
Instead she was recruited by an NCAA Division I basketball coach to bring her vast knowledge of basketball to the states, and so she left her home town of only 10,000 and landed in New York
Well that for many people would have been scary enough, but just imagine doing the same thing when you can’t really speak the language of the country you were aiming to flourish in.
Well this didn’t stop her at all, and in one season she led her team to one regular season title, first WNIT appearance and a conference championship game. Wow!!
And now she has taken that attitude of becoming a champion, and moved into the world of business where she helps other business owners realize their business goals and guide them to success as a virtual business manager and business consultant.
Her life has run the gamut of both setbacks and successes.
She has had the highs of winning streaks, the lows of unemployment.
She has struggled to find her entrepreneurial place, but now has built a business, and succeeded in creating one that is not only thriving but has helped other achieve their business goals.
And now with her book “BOLD! Helping YOU Unleash The Hero Within” she is helping the world to become a champion and all become hero’s.
But how did she first get found in Slovenia with the job offer from the states?
And did she have the same self-doubts that stop so many of us from trying something new?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Sara Speicher.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Sara Speicher such as:
Why it is so totally important to be as authentic as you can in life even if that means that you annoy some people, and lose some business. The people that will love you will love you big-time!
How she never really had the dream to hit the big-time in America like so many of her other basketball playing colleagues in Slovenia, but still took the risk when it came her way.
How so many of us struggle to balance building a business with spending time with the families that we love in the beginning, even though the effort we put in is for the security and support of our loved ones
Why it is so important to delegate as much of our work as we feel comfortable with at the beginning to allow ourselves the time to deliver where our talents lie.
Why focus is the number on thing that can propel us all to the success that we crave, but is also the number one thing that we all seem to be poor at showing.
