Protecting Your Greatest Assets: Your Mindset and Your Business with Sir Steven Wilkinson

In Episode 2 of this special series on self-care and strategy for entrepreneurs, Dr. Sabrina, The Business Psychologist™, addresses being very protective of your headspace. Her guest, Sir Steven Wilkinson, joins her to discuss protecting another very important asset: our businesses.

We all have a lot of extra stress in our lives today, and Dr. Sabrina’s intention is to take care of the international entrepreneurial community during this crisis by sharing ideas to help us cope. Self-care for us all is extremely important during this time, so please share this information with your team members, who may also be feeling unsafe during this coronavirus event.

Sir Steven Wilkinson is the Founder of Good & Prosper. He was also the VIP Speaker of the Tap the Potential 2020 Breakthroughs on the Bayou retreat.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

Show Highlights:

  • Look two years into your future and picture what you want your life and your business to look like.
  • Are there options that can move you CLOSER to your vision?
  • If we keep in mind how we want to be and how we want our business to come out of this, we will make better short-term decisions that better serve our future goals.
  • Sir Steven weighs in on current events and on how we should be minimizing fallout, as governments are recognizing that small business owners are the true backbone of this entire economy.
  • Dr. Sabrina’s personal philosophy when it comes to government programs is that it’s great if it’s available, but she wants to build her life and business in such a way that she does not need to rely on it.
  • One of the positive things that have come out of this crisis is the return to community, and community is everything in these times.
  • Dr. Sabrina’s tip of the week on self-care is to implement a daily huddle with your team for the sake of morale. This can be via zoom or phone, if necessary. Focus on providing updates, wins and successes, and gratitude.
  • Allow team members to express their fears and encourage team members to respond in a supportive way.
  • Ask your team members what support they need and look for ways that other team members can show up and support and be a gift during that time.
  • A team topic for discussion: What random acts of kindness have you given, experienced, or witnessed lately?
  • Dr. Sabrina shares some more self-care tips:
    • Protect your mindset by being very careful about the information you take in.
    • Sleep is critical in a number of ways.
    • Daily exercise is important.
    • Think strategically and surrounding yourself with like-minded, supportive entrepreneurs.
    • Assess your entrepreneurial burnout through our free assessment HERE. This will help you look at self-care measures that you need to put in place so that entrepreneurial burnout does not get out of hand.
  • Sir Steven discusses the creation of a FREE eBook titled “Leadership in the Time of COVID-19” that you can download on his Website. There’s a humorous title for it when you download it!
  • He designed the e-book with two action items in mind:
    1. The urgent need for restructuring; and
    2. How do I turn this to my advantage?
  • Since we don’t know when this crisis will end, Sir Steven offers tips and ideas that we can be working on every day.
  • This is a great time to step back and determine how you should be caring for yourself in order to be the leader you need to be.
  • The Q-Storming process is a useful tool that bypasses tunnel vision. Current and past clients can request a FREE laser-coaching session. If you’ve never been a client, check out a 45-minute Q-Storming strategy session here: It is a $250 investment.
  • An encouraging rally-cry: “Lead with love. Shine bright. Be a gift.”

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
