Stephanie Calahan’s Mind Hacks for entrepreneurs – BEing VS DOing and Misplaced Actions

Being VS Doing from Stephanie Calahan, Business coach and entrepreneur


Stephanie Calahan

The launch of my two-book set “Entrepreneur Mind Hacks” has been a blast. I invited over 40 successful entrepreneurs to contribute to the book (yes, at that time it was only going to be one book). Stephanie Calahan was one of those I asked to consider it, and she jumped right on it.

Stephanie is a great sister in the LORD who I was blessed to meet as part of the moderator team in the Christians in Business Community over on Google +.

Right away I knew that her enthusiasm and zeal for seeing God do the kind of work only He can do through her business was an attitude I wanted to be around more often. That alone was enough to motivate me to ask her to be a contributor to my Mind Hacks books.

As part of the book promotion I’ve been having a blast doing live Hangout on Air broadcasts with some of the contributors. The conversation I had with Stephanie was incredible. She has such insight into the way we are wired as human beings and how that impacts the way we do things in daily life. She takes those kinds of insights into the practice of business in a way that is truly unique and encouraging.

I can see why her clients like her so much!

So… here’s the video conversation I had with Stephanie… it’s just over 30 minutes long, a firehose session of great info.

  1. Definitely an insightful interview. I love the theme of having a goal and purpose for every action. Even while working toward a purpose you tie specific actions to the goal. I got a kick out of the reference to the menu with so many options. When I go to a restaurant I prefer the stripped down lunch menu, not because of the speed of service or the price, but because it reduces my choices. I also show up last at the buffet line because lots of the stuff has already been eliminated by hungry people ahead of me.

    Being not doing – I have been a slave of the to-do list and I am going to give the to be list a try. Be purposeful about how I want to be during the day. I’m pretty much the same way all the time and I like me – but maybe there are some improvements. I’m pretty laid back and have been told I am way too patient with people. Forgiveness or anger isn’t an issue. I need to give this some thought on how I want to be every day and reviewing how I’ve done at the end of the day. Accountable is the key and I think this is the challenge I need to take on.
