When Good Clients Go Bad

Written by Christine Kane

“As a leader, you are always going to get a combination of two things: What you create and what you allow.”   – Dr. Henry Cloud

One of my pals is dealing with an abusive client.  It didn’t begin that way. But over the course of a year, there have been verbal attacks, degrading emails and even outbursts at my client’s team.

Written by Christine Kane

One of my Platinum mastermind clients, a successful corporate trainer, issued a plea to her peers last week in the Facebook group.  She wrote:

The Single Biggest Cause of Failure

Written by Christine Kane

Chances are, there’s something you’re doing that will hold you back again and again in your life and your business. This is the biggest cause of failure. It isn’t about your marketing or the packages you’ve set up. This is all about YOU.

This has to do with what I call the SOUL and STRATEGY tracks of a business. The way I teach this in my Uplevel Academy Masterminds is that in your business there’s a STRATEGY TRACK– (this is the marketing, systems, and the real how-to and left brain work); and [...] Continue Reading…
