Episode 16: The Common Denominator
“You’re so vain … you probably think this podcast’s about you, don’t you.”
Are you the common denominator? When things aren’t going so well in your business, your relationships, or your life, and these issues keep coming up again and again, are you the link? When things go right, do you know how to replicate your results?
Finding your common denominators can help you shift your focus to creating new, more productive patterns, while allowing you to enact true change for the better (or to continue on the right path if you’re on it). By addressing communication styles, mindset, and attitude, as well as systems and processes, Lynn and Amanda break down when, how, and why you need to determine who (or what) the common denominator is.
In today’s episode, Lynn and Amanda discuss real-life, personal examples of looking for the common denominator, and how it makes all the difference in their businesses.
