#142: Is Your Self-Image a Match for the Firm You're Building

Listen Now:

How do you see yourself as the owner of this firm?

Self Image is not what you want others to believe about you. It is not what you want to believe about you, but what you actually and honestly think about yourself when it is just you and the mirror.

What comes up?

In Velocity Work Podcast episode #142: Is Your Self-Image a Match for the Firm You're Building, Melissa shares a common thread she is seeing in firm owners. Velocity Work engages clients growing their firms, and owners like you set goals for the firm and for their team.

Some owners face a discrepancy between what they want and what they actually believe they can accomplish. And it creates a lot of discomfort and pain because it can feel almost like you are not a match for the next level of the firm.

Unless you gain some awareness and close that gap in your self-image, you may be inadvertently creating drag on forward momentum for the firm.

Listen to learn what steps you can take to close the self-image gap.
