EP102 The Top 5 Crazy Makers To Avoid in 2017

As 2016 comes to a close, many fierce feminine leaders are starting to envision and plan what they want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Developing a strategy and action plan each year is a critical step to propelling your business forward, maintaining your already achieved momentum, and clearing a path so you can find your seat at the big tables.

Today, I want to share with you the types of people you should avoid in 2017. These are people who will inevitably derail your strategy to success, make you feel undervalued, self-conscious, and inhibit your performance.


For every hour you spend with a crazy-maker, you are going to spend about 5 to 10 hours paying for it.


Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Women who execute well and get stuff done are more successful because they manage their state of mind well.
  • Your ‘state’ – or state of mind – is how you feel, manage, and react to how you are feeling from one moment to the next.
  • Limiting your exposure to negative people – the crazy-makers – will help improve your ‘state’.


5 Common Crazy-Maker Categories to Edit Out of Your Life in 2017:

  1. The ‘Red Alert’ People – Those people who are always afraid, always see pitfalls, dangers or threats and want you to be afraid, too.
  2. The “Undermining’ People – Those who are jealous or feel threatened by what you are doing. The people who make you feel self-conscious about yourself or your work. These people will curb your creativity, effectiveness, and your ability to get things done.
  3. The “Constructive Feedback” People – People who give you ‘constructive feedback’ when you didn’t ask for it – even when they don’t know what they are talking about or their feedback isn’t helpful.
  4. The “It Should Have Happened Yesterday” People – Those who lack the patience or don’t realize that it takes time to execute things properly.
  5. The “Stuck in a Rut” People – The people who have their own problems, but refuse to do their own work to make a change. Those people who talk about the same issues and problems repeatedly without taking action.


My Challenge To You:

Surround yourself with people that have a different opinion than you, but do not to spend too much time with the crazy-makers that will bring you down and derail your progress and success.
