Kaplan's Be the Elephant
This book is a great resource and despite it being about a decade old still offers real value. I recommend it for entrepreneurs, anyone that has a small business or is thinking of starting a small business as it contains a ton of good information. In it, Kaplan gives excellent guidance on analyzing your business, developing opportunities for growth, and managing risk.
Steve Kaplan is an expert entrepreneur and has helped hundreds of businesses become more efficient, expand, thus ultimately increasing profits. This book is like having personal access with an business guru.
A New Look
The last two weeks I have spent completing my coaching exams at MentorCoach. This marks the culmination of nearly three years of education and while I worked very hard, I had a lot of support along the way. Primarily, I wanted to say thanks to my family that have always supported me in this journey. They have tolerated many nights and weekends of study, classes, proofreading, and me lamenting! But through it all they offered nothing but love and patience. This is especially true of my husband, Scott.
Thanks extends to my primary career, the Coast Guard, where I have had the pleasure and honor of working for some fine leaders. Specifically, Nick Grasselli and William Makell - both whom supported me and my coaching efforts.
To mark the completion of my certification journey, I have updated the scotthowardcoaching.com website to make it more user friendly and focused on coaching exclusively.
Listened to a great interview of Dr. Bernard Roth yesterday that was moderated by the founder of MentorCoach LLC, Ben Dean, PhD. The interview was very informative and exciting. Roth is a leading expert on the behavior of achievement, reaching goals rather than just dreaming about them, and helping one 'take command of your life'.
