I love the fact that big organizations ask me to speak to their people about innovation and leadership. This is where I came from. I love sharing the journey and creating the future. Daring to imagine what could be possible if only we let ourselves dream.
I drive my team spare, I want to do before I think. I get into trouble regularly for being a bull at a gate, impatient, passionate? and often foot in mouth.
This poem touched me… it reminded me that business is just a game? and to ask myself ‘Did I have fun today?’. If the answer is no? what am I going to do about it?

They Say I’m Extreme
They say ‘I’m extreme’.
I say ‘I’m a realist’.
They say ‘I demand too much’.
I say ‘they accept mediocrity and continuous improvement too readily’.
They say, ‘We can’t handle this much change’.
I say ‘Your job and career are in jeopardy; what other options do you have?’
They say, ‘what’s wrong with a ‘good product’?’
I say ‘Wal-mart or China or both are about to eat your lunch. Why can’t you provide instead a fabulous experience?’
They say ‘Take a deep breath, be calm.’
I say ‘Tell it to Wal-Mart. Tell it to China. Tell it to India. Tell it to Dell. Tell it to Microsoft.’
They say ‘the Web is a useful tool’.
I say ‘the Web changes everything – Now’.
They say, ‘we need an initiative’.
I say ‘We need a dream, and dreamers’.
They say ‘great design is ‘nice’.’
I say ‘great design is necessary’.
They say ‘Effective governance is important’.
I say ‘bold, brash boards that are representative of the market, served more than a token woman or two and an empty seat for the ‘forthcoming Hispanic’? are an imperative? Now’.
They say ‘Plan it’.
I say ‘Do it’.

Grow & Scale Your Business by Naomi Simson

Tell Naomi a little bit about your business by completing the questions below. (It will take less than 60 seconds)

Answering your #1 Biggest Business Challenge question tip: 

Go beyond just saying "Poor Cashflow" or "Unreliable Team". 

Instead, give Naomi details & specifics on how this is currently your #1 Biggest Business Challenge. 

I.e. "Every month I'm struggling to pay my bills on time because there just isn't consistent cash flow coming into the business. I've tried sticking to budgets in the past & pay myself less to keep some extra funds aside for emergencies, but still every month there seems to be another financial fire to be put out. I don't know what to do about it, so I'm just grinding it out."
