Today's guest is Gina Catalano, who hails from Southern Arizona. She is also the Founder of Ventures Solutions, a Consulting and Coaching company that focuses on small businesses and their leaders.
She is the Author of the Amazon best seller Tandem Leadership: How Your #2 Can Make You #1.
In this conversation, Gina agrees that many entrepreneurs' #1 mistake is doing tasks that they like doing without considering the amount of money it costs them. Many business people think they cannot afford to hire somebody and they end-up doing a $15/hour tasks, without realizing that their time is worth way more than that. Unfortunately, many don't see it that way. She mentions how my previous blog resonates with this principle.
She emphasizes on the importance of hiring people who are expert on doing specific tasks than doing them yourself.
According to Gina, discipline is just a matter of decision and action; so instead of wanting success, practice success. If one wants to be an entrepreneur, become an entrepreneur. Just like a child who wants to learn to walk, they get-up and they fall a thousand times.
Gina is fascinated with Leading Change by John Kotter, which she re-reads every few years and finds it timeless and hitting the mark.
And just like many successful entrepreneurs, her daily rituals include waking-up between 5:00 and 5:15, meditate every day for 20 minutes and workout before starting her day around 7:30am; a routine that she has been doing for 5 years.
