Today Could Change Your Life!

From: Greg Clowminzer, Zen Coach

You and I both know that nobody I mean nobody can get you to do anything you don’t want to do, right!

There is absolutely know way somebody is going to make you change your diet, make you exercise, or get you to do the things you know you need to do in order to develop yourself and grow your business.

Or, is there?

“It’s not the job of a coach to make pigs fly. It’s your coach’s job to develop your wings so that you can soar like an eagle.”

If you are finally ready to take real control of your personal and professional development and make sure you are on the fast track towards success, freedom, and fulfillment then I urge you to call my office to receive your free copy of the Business & Life Success Coaching Questionnaire then complete it and call my office at 760-930-9604 to schedule a complimentary coaching session to review what matters most to you.

Completing this questionnaire helps you get crystal clear about your goals, priorities and the obstacles that are robbing you from experiencing more success, joy and happiness.

Whether you want to experience more financial success, personal fulfillment, communicate more effectively, negotiate more powerfully, produce remarkable results, have a stronger sense of Self, and live your life consciously and purposefully, help is only a phone call away.

I work with a limited number of private coaching clients at a time so make sure to call my office today at 760-930-9604 to schedule your complimentary coaching session.

In love and service,

If you are not building your social network chances are you and your business will get left behind. If you don’t even know what social networking is or what social network services are, you need to know fast.

One of the social networks that I stumbled on about a year ago is where it promotes conscious capitalism and helping change the world. They use one of Gandhi’s quotes which is something like “Be the change you are seeking”. Check it out and if you add a profile feel free to invite me as a friend, You can find me at: zaadz

Stategic One-Page

I have found this process very helpful for both myself and working with clients. It fairly linear but still extremely valuable. Do youself a favor and spend an entire day on it, if that's what it takes.

VISION – A DREAM WITH A PLAN – Most people don’t have visions, they have
dreams. The one-page planning document guides you to answer 7 simple questions
around your dream – Who, What, When, Where, How, Why and the always difficult
“but Should we or Shouldn’t we?” You’ll see these anchor questions at the top of each
column of the one-page planning document and bolded below to provide you a verbal
and visual clue to match the “how to” sections with the appropriate columns on the form.

Awakening The Leader Within

Enlightened Leadership begins with awakening an individual to their True-Nature, Authentic-Self, or Higher-Self or whatever name you choose to call it.

When the individual has experienced or awakened to the truth of who they are, what another is, and what life is the Enlightened Leader is born. Once an awaking has taken place it is accompanied by new understandings. The individual then begins to align their deepest truth, values and unique gifts with their role as a leader.

By aligning enlightenment with leadership one gains the wisdom to “Do the right things, the right way”. The Enlightened Leader has the ability to know what actions or non-actions are called for in each moment of truth.

Enlightened Leadership begins with Enlightened Leaders

Enlightened Leaders practice self-reflection and authentic communication

Self-reflection and authentic communication are the core practices of the

Enlightenment Intensive

The Enlightenment Intensive allow leaders to reflect deeply

Deep reflection awakens new understandings

New understandings lead to wiser decisions

Wiser decisions lead to smarter actions

Wow! What a huge success. I was so excited to hear Rob Slee the Author of the Midas Managers via a webcast hosted by one of my coaching clients Gary Fitzgerald, CPA and R.J. Kelly last week. The conversations it stimulated about doubling the growth of privately held businesses within 3 years was awesome. I can’t wait to tell all my clients and friends about InKnowVision and the Midas Managers next webinar. Every business owner needs to hear this message.

Mastering the Challenges of Spiritual Awakening, Growing Your Business, and Deepening Your Relationships

Spiritual awakening will be the first step to doing business in the future and if not the world will be doomed. If your still doing business from a place of self-centeredness and what’s in it for me, your missing the boat. If you haven’t noticed we are becoming interconnected through a global economy and unfortunately most Americans fail to recognize this. It is time to become more conscious of our interconnectedness with others, how we are doing business and wake- up. One of the new skills we will needed to succeed is the ability to think holistically rather than linearly. The The Enlightenment Intensive is a great way to awaken new understandings within you and become a leader in a new economy.
