I can’t go far without hearing the statement, “You do you.”
It seems to be the quote-du-jour.
This idea of “You do you” is similar in sentiment to Amy Poehler’s words, “Good for her, not for me.” These words come from her hilarious book, Yes, Please! The full quote reads:
“That is the motto women should constantly repeat over and over again. Good for her, not for me.”
When I heard this, I thought about just how true the statement is, and yet how much we fight against it. And the thing is, business is hard enough without working against ourselves, so let’s sink into what it would really mean to live Poehler’s words.
Enjoy today’s episode:
Yes, please! – Amy Poehler
Better than before – Gretchen Rubin
How to live a good life – Jonathan Fields
Submit Your Question:
Starting next week, I’ll be adding a new episode to the weekly line-up where I get to answer your burning business and leadership questions.
I wanted to add this to the mix in the spirit of being more useful to you in 2017. Here’s what that looks like and how you can be involved. You can visit the link: bit.ly/bppquestions and submit a question for consideration. I’ll answer a listener question on a first come, first serve basis every Thursday.
Now, you might wonder what kinds of questions you can and should ask. First, let me be clear that I’m not looking for business mechanics questions. Asking me what type of shopping cart to use, or whether you should be on Facebook or Twitter aren’t the types of questions I’ll be focusing on. I know those are important questions, but many of the answers are just a Google search away.
Given that this show focuses on business, leadership and personal effectiveness, please focus your questions here.
They can be thorny questions about a situation you’re dealing with that you’d like some feedback on (e.g. “how do I tell my business partner she needs to start pulling her weight?” or “I want to fire a client, but we’ve been working together forever and I don’t know how, any ideas?”) to general questions like, “What should I consider before I hire my first person?” or “My business model isn’t working for me, but I’m scared to change it. What should I do?”
I’ll offer ideas, insights, inquiries or advice depending on what’s most needed.
And to be clear, your question can remain relatively anonymous. I will refer to you only by your first name, unless you specifically state that you’d like me to share your business URL as well. So no worries about asking a question that feels a bit vulnerable.
I’d love your questions! Submit your question here.
