"Busy isn't productive. Your 'to do list' isn't most important.
The list of commitments you actually honor is."
Today I get to introduce you to the business coach who I
began working with 10 years ago when I transitioned from real
estate + construction into speaking + writing.
Edie Varley has an undeniable energy that will
absolutely captivate you. Get ready to
recalibrate what is truly important in your life, relationships and
business from my business coach and friend.
- Be your best; not the best, your best. Because
with that mindset, you are improving.
- You never have to apologize at your best. It means you've
prepared, planned and executed.
- Live up to the fullness of your promise.
- Busy isn't productive. It isn't the 'to do'

leads to the emotion.
- When you love yourself, you're able to love
others in the season they're in. You accept no
responsibility for their choices. THAT is a freedom.
- Where are you going in such a hurry?
- Are you living in purpose?
- Is your measurement your neighbor?
- If you don't like the life you have chosen and are living: Do
the hardest thing in the world and change.
- In golf you have a bad shot and you replay it again to learn
what went wrong. It's the same when something goes wrong in a
relationship; it allows you to take control and not be a pawn on
someone else's gameboard.
- What is your behavior looking like?
- What are your words? Words create worlds.
