Gay Hendricks has served for more than 40 years as one of the significant contributors to relationship transformation and body-mind therapies. A New York Times Best Selling author, Dr. Hendricks' books include Conscious Loving and The Big Leap.
Gay grew up in central Florida with swamps and alligators during the pre-Disney era. "I remember my mother was the mayor of Leesburg, so we were prominent citizens since the turn of the last century." Gay's grandparents were the founders of the town. "I grew up in a town where everybody knew everybody else."
He now resides in small Ohio town with his wife of 40 years, Katie. "We found our dream house here 20 years ago. It’s a long way from where I started."
Today we’ll talk about his work and his new book - The Genius Zone - and it's fantastic. Listen in to find out more about Gay and what you can expect from his new book!
Surpassing Your Upper Limits
“You can think of an upper limit problem like an allergy. You get to a certain place in your life, and it knocks you out of the space you were in.” he relates to the upper limit to a glass ceiling that you can’t see but need to move past. “Even though the original barrier may have been there from when you were a child, those moments put a crimp in our ability to access and feel the flow of our organic creative genius.”
Gay Hendricks New Book: The Genius Zone
His new book, The Genius Zone, is about the giant leap. In his book, Dr. Hendricks shows you how to jump into your genius zone and how to live and make your home there. "I think it's really the only satisfying, true home. Even if you live in a dream house, like I do it wouldn't be home unless I was in my genius too."
Listen in to find out how Dr. Hendricks came to find his creative practice, who he is inspired by and how to understand your creative energy. In this episode, I dive into how you can harness your inner creativity and break through your glass ceiling.

Today we're talking about how to break the cycle of perfectionism in sales. We're going to talk about mindset, particularly how to overcome perfectionism in sales.
Why Perfectionism Equates to Lost Sales
So many times, I see my women business clients feel the pressure of overworking, overdoing, and going out of their way to create a “perfect” outcome when achieving perfection is a fallacy.
Instead of having perfection as a goal, you need to look at your skillset, how you are going to sell, and the steps for sales follow-up. Understand that when you seek perfectionism, this is only hijacking your efforts to achieve your monetary and business goals and putting you on a one-way street for burnout.
Listen in to find out how to find happiness in your work, how to know if you’re overdelivering, and why you’re not responsible for other people’s feelings. In this episode, I dive into ways to overcome perfectionism, including:
How perfectionism can get in the way of closing a sale
Why you shouldn’t wear perfectionism as a badge of honor
The differences between mastery and perfectionism
Shifting your identity to overcome perfectionism
Putting perfectionism aside so you can make growth mistakes

In my Persuade to Profit class, I see many business owners making these same ten mistakes repeatedly. Learn which ten mistakes are most common and how you can turn these around to increase your sales and skyrocket your company’s profits.
Ten Biggest Sales Mistakes to Avoid
I want you to keep an open mind because sales will connect the dots for you. One of the biggest challenges my clients face is playing into the wrong mindset about sales and money. Sales are not inherent to us - it’s a skill that must be learned and practiced daily. Without sales training and understanding how to follow up on sales, you won’t be able to thrive in your business.
Listen in to find out the importance of knowing your audience, why you should ask for more money, and why you shouldn’t rely on your coaching certifications to get clients.
In this episode, I dive into ten mistakes I often see in sales companies, including:

I recently had a chat with Belinda Rosenblum about the relationship between marketing, sales training, and having liquid cash in your business.
Upgrading Your Business Mindset’s Mental Clarity
Cash confusion where it just feels like you're overthinking your plan. This stage feels very disorganized and reactionary. To calm the chaos, you can focus on your mental clarity in three key areas: emotional clarity, tactical clarity, and strategic clarity.
Upgrade your beliefs and your money story and start changing your identity to be your business owner. Now you can learn tactics such as a money system tracking revenue expenses. Upleveling requires a strategic side, particularly in thinking about the creation of consistent income each month.
Revolutionize how you look at your business and how you collect money for your business. And this works for everything. You know, coaches are a great example, but I mean, I remember coaching my massage therapy.
Take a step back and look at your business and ask yourself, "How can you work together for three or six months to achieve an outcome?" Now people are buying the outcome and results. You're not forced into bank balance decision-making and bank-bound stress based on when you happen to have money in your bank or not.
Listen in to find out the importance of paying yourself first in your business, why the messy middle of business can be tedious, and why you should access credit to grow your business.
In this episode, I dive into a positive business mindset with Belinda including:
