Get Over the Commitment Issues and Put A Stake in the Ground, RNFM Radio EPS 208


On this episode of RNFM Radio, we learn that Elizabeth is hungry, waiting in front of the mic for her husband to deliver her a shrimp salad sandwich during the show. We also learn that Elizabeth does a terrible Australian accent, Kevin loves steak, and there’s a great deal of silliness going on in the virtual studio today. And just to reassure you, no animals were harmed in the making of this podcast.

Are you putting a stake in the ground?

At any rate, this is about putting a stake in the ground, making a commitment, and moving forward on what you want to do. If evaluating where you are at this time in your career and life, we recommend our SWOT episode for taking a 360-degree birds eye view of your current place.

This is another kind of stake!

If you want to put a stake in the ground and move forward, the first thing you need is an idea (e.g.: a concierge nursing case management company for geriatric patients in my community).

So, as always, start with a list!

  • What skills do you have?
  • What is the mission or vision of your business idea?
  • Who is your target audience?
  • What problem(s) are you able to solve for potential clients/customers?
  • Will people align with the services or products you’re offering?

Stand on your platform!

  • This is me
  • This is my brand
  • This is my mission and my vision
  • Bring some bravado to the table and stand behind your vision; put a stake in the ground
  • Feel the fear and do it anyway

Move forward!

  • Once your stake is in the ground, it’s time to really move forward and take inspired action
  • Stay nimble, be ready to pivot at any time
  • Understand that you can sink more than one stake in the ground when you’re ready (e.g.: launching multiple business endeavors or branches of a business)

You are amazing!
