Your zone of genius is when your work is giving you energy rather than draining it." - Noomi Melchoir Natan
There's a lot of talk about what Gay Hendricks (author of The Big Leap) calls our 'zone of genius', but not nearly as much press about its counterpart, our 'zone of excellence'.
If you feel like you've been hitting some mindset and income ceilings, it's time to shed a little light onto this sneaky place so many of us like to hang out, hide in plain sight, and sabotage our business success.
Our zone of excellence can be a pretty comfortable place to sit in, especially for us high achievers, and it can also cost us business growth.
That's why I did this livestream to talk about why so many of us end up stuck in our zone of excellence, how avoiding our zone of genius costs us impact and income, and why you want to "find the dumplings in your business!"
