The True Profit Business Podcast: Series 1 Episode 2
The doing and being of business
Do you run on adrenalin or realise that you have taken on too many responsibilities to effectively keep up with all the stuff that needs doing in your business each week? Then perhaps you are a Dominate Do-er.
Or perhaps you find yourself procrastinating or find it hard to take risks and are even fearful of becoming visible and getting yourself ‘out there’? Then maybe you are a Dominate Be-er.
Welcome to True Profit Business, the podcast that dives into what it really takes to create a purposeful, playful and profitable business. In this episode, Karen Skidmore discusses these two polarities; the doing and being of business.
Our energy and the way we react, respond and move about our day-to-day lives come from two places; our doing energy and our being energy. These polarities show up in our left and right brains, the sun and moon, yin and yang, and in our heads and hearts.
The focus of most business teaching and training is very doing; marketing metrics, profit and loss accounts, digital dashboards and social algorithms. Success is often defined by numbers and taking action is always celebrated. Yes, there’s no doubt that we need to do and take action on our intentions, but too much doing energy often leads to burn out.
During this episode, Karen takes you through the profiles of Dominant Do-ers and Dominate Be-ers, she tells her story of how she allowed the Dominate Do-er in her took her to the extreme and explains how you need to find a way of using both powers to enable you to play your biggest game.
One is not better than the other. You need to access both to fulfil your potential and grow.
