Running a business is not just about money — it brings meaning and purpose to our lives.

To be #BusinessBrave means we pour our heart and soul into what we offer, how we offer it and who we serve — without apology.

And, while we must keep our business separate from our soul-selves, we must also recognize that the kind of energy WE bring to our business is the energy our clients and possible clients experience.

So, your business … it’s personal.

So invest in yourself, the CEO, the owner, the leader, the founder.

Here are 5 Mid-Year Review Questions to ask yourself about the role you are playing in your business this year.

  • How am I different right now compared to the beginning of the year? What is still the same? Is that OK with me?
  • On a scale of 1–10, how much of a risk-taker have I been? If I invested in being more courageous, what would change for my business?
  • Am I leading or being dragged?
  • What am I being called to create or make this year that hasn’t yet happened? What is stopping me from making this happen?
  • What goal can I let go of now because this isn’t the right season or timing?

This midway point in the year is a great time to make space to reflect and contemplate not just on the numbers of your business — which may be out of your control — and, instead, focus on who you want to be and how you want to lead.

Which question speaks to you the most? Share in comments.
