We often talk about how we, as entrepreneurs, are A-players, and how our businesses benefit from hiring A-players, so who could possibly think that there’s a dark side to this, an Achilles heel of being an A-player?
In today’s episode, guest Nick Pavlidis reveals what we need to be aware of around this dark side as we work on designing our businesses that give us our lives back. Nick shares so many inspiring nuggets of wisdom that you may even find yourself experiencing a total mindset shift during this conversation, so please join us!
Nick Pavlidis is a lawyer-turned-ghostwriter, podcaster, and course creator. Nick helps thought leaders write books that build more momentum during the writing process than most books build over their lifetime. He also helps writers turn their talent and passion for writing into a profitable ghostwriting business.
Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.
- Nick shares the compelling story of why he transitioned from a law career into a writing career, and how making these decisions surrounding that transition gave Nick his life back.
- Dr. Sabrina and Nick discuss the lessons he learned during that period of time.
- The downside to being an A-player is learning to set boundaries. Dr. Sabrina explains why this is imperative to the entrepreneur.
- What value could you be providing when you’re not in the weeds? What’s being missed with your top clients? Understand the value of what you and your business offer.
- When we, as entrepreneurs, own our value and recognize and work from our strengths, the value gets delivered to our clients.
- Nick shares information about his course, Booked!, which is designed for thought leaders. This course will walk you through the same process that his ghost-writing clients go through to help achieve success and teaches you how to use the book-writing process as a way to generate revenue and new opportunities.
