“I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it…”
We used to play this song by The Pointer Sisters so often during our trainings… I know the words are inappropriate to describe our relationship… but after reading all the introductions – I just can’t wait to start working together.
I hope by the time we meet on Zoom next Thursday you will feel the same…
If you didn’t introduce yourself yet…
STOP EVERYTHING YOU DO – and…

We’re going to work together as a group – and if we don’t know who you are – we can’t support you or work with you.
Also – during this weekend – Vered and I will go over all the introductions and pair you up with 2 other participants as accountability buddies. If you don’t introduce yourself we cannot pair you up – and you will miss one of the most powerful benefits of the program.
If you have a technical or practical problem to post your introduction – please contact us – and we’ll help you out. If you have a “willingness” issue – please let us know – so we can remove you from the program.
If you already introduced yourself…
CONGRATULATE YOURSELF – and…

So by the time we start next week – you already feel like a part of this group.
OK… enough housekeeping… it’s time for the second preparation assignment
Your business is a vehicle…
The main purpose of Working ON My Business program is to transform your business into a powerful vehicle to help you fulfill your potential and purpose in this life.
So… during the program we are NOT going to discuss tactics (e.g. how to use Facebook ads, how to create great YouTube videos, or how to build an effective sales funnel…)
All those are parts of working IN your business.
Instead, you’re going to focus on thinking and implementing strategically – so you will focus on the bigger picture. You will be taking a step every single week to get your business working harder and more effective for you, and making it the vehicle that would get you to fulfill your potential.
To do that you’re going to work ON your business.
But before we start working on your “vehicle” you better get clear on the destination you want to go to…
Why did you start your business?
Take some time to think – what was your purpose (or purposes) when you started your business… was it freedom, fulfillment, contribution, money…? Or maybe it was something totally different.
When you have it… write it down for yourself.
My story (maybe that would clarify it…)
I started my first software company (when I was 18) because it was fun and challenging. We’ve developed games and educational software and for the first 5-6 years it was fun and challenging. As a result – we did great. The company grew like crazy and I became very wealthy. When the fun and challenge were gone – it took me less than two years to bring the company into bankruptcy.
When I started Open Circles Academy – my purpose was growth. I realized that if I want to grow – I must confront my biggest fears. Since I was afraid of people – my best way to confront this fear was working with people…
With time my purpose shifted to freedom and contribution, and Open Circles became a perfect vehicle for both. Until it didn’t anymore… and then I closed it, 7 years ago…
And now… I’m starting a new direction, with this program, and with a new purpose – happiness.
I’ll explain more about it when we meet on Thursday, June 16 – and I’ll show you how the program will help YOU transform your business to become the ultimate vehicle for YOU to reach YOUR destination.
To get you started…
You need to figure out what is your destination TODAY.
To do that, take your time and seriously consider the following questions:
- Where you are today, and where you want to be in the future?
What is the most important purpose your business should take you to (e.g. authenticity, contribution, freedom, fulfillment, growth, happiness, healing, influence, integrity, legacy, transformation, wealth, wisdom…)
- If your business would get you to that “destination” how would your life (both professional AND personal) look like?
- When you look objectively at your business, clients, team, products/services and you as an entrepreneur – what stops you from reaching this destination?
Take the time to answer these 3 questions, as detailed as possible, in the comment box below – so both you and I are very clear on your destination, outcome and obstacles.
And don’t miss the opportunity to read what others have written, get inspired, and maybe offer a gentle support…
Make sure to complete this preparation assignment latest by Sunday.
On Monday – you will get the third and last preparation assignment, before we start the program next Thursday in the live Zoom meeting.
I’m looking forward to meet you on the 16th of June at 8pm CET, and I’m excited for what we are going to accomplish together.
Live fully, stay awesome,
