A few years ago, I was standing with a producer pal of mine in her new home in Colorado. We’d worked together for years on TV series and film in London. And here I was finally visiting her in her beautiful home in the skiing areas of Colorado. And she was telling me something utterly fascinating.

She grew up in the mountains of Colorado and has skied her whole life but for her birthday her delightful husband had bought her a skiing lesson. An improvers class. And she had, she skied down the mountain and she had a guide with her who explained ways to improve her technique.

And she told me something fascinating.

She said skiing had always been delightful but hard work for her. She got to the bottom of the run and she was tired. She’d worked that mountain all the way down.

And what this gentleman did was he skied next to her and made tiny little adjustments. Just lift your gaze, change your wrist position, alter how you sit on your ankles. And she said not only did she run faster, but she got to the bottom of the run and she felt lighter and less tired.

Because when you make tiny adjustments that improve the flow, that create ease within yourself and, of course, I’m going to bring this back to business, but when you make those tiny easeful moments, everything changes.

Now for me, as you know, I was sick last year and I realised that I had to focus on only the important things. That created huge ease within my business.

But the crux of it was that I run Masterminds. They only take a couple of hours each month to run. The actual core contact time is 4 hours with the client because I run twice a month at 2 hours each.

But I average 7 hours to run the whole thing with all the admin and everything else. 7 hours a month for a good money-earner that is a lot of ease.

So whenever I think that I’m pushing myself too hard, I think about my friend gliding down those slopes. After years of being a great skier, she’s now an easeful skier. I want that for myself and I want that for you. And I think you’ll find Masterminds are the way to do that.

Go check out Mastering Mastermind. It’s open at the moment and if you’ve just missed it I run it once a year so there is always a chance to do that.

But consider Masterminds for your business either way. They truly create ease and a lot of entertainment and some revenue – that is always helpful.

So, thank you for listening.
I’m Liz Scully.
Thanks for being here.
