Not in my zone of genius? Not in my schedule.
Psst… We didn’t write or schedule this blog post.
What are you amazing at doing?
Why did you get into the business or field you’re in?
What doesn’t feel like work?
What makes you feel “in the zone”?
What seems to just come naturally to you?
These questions are a great jumping off point to
figure out your zone of genius.

We didn’t invent the concept of a “zone of genius.”
Gay Hendricks coined the phrase in his 2009 book The Big Leap.
He lays out 4 zones of function:
1. Zone of Incompetence
2. Zone of Competence
3. Zone of Excellence
4. Zone of Genius
(You can read more about it by Googling this book, but it’s cool to note that your Zone of Excellence is not the same as your Zone of Genius. Just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean it puts you in flow.)
We have structured our business so that we are spending more time in our zone of genius: COACHING.
(Get your hands on some free coaching.)
We have designed a business that allows us to have the life we want. We work when we want to work, and we only do the things we want to do.
We’ve got people to take care of the rest.
Does that sound scary to you? Maybe even a little cringy?
If I don’t want to do something, why would someone else want to?
Because their zone of genius is different from yours.
For example, when this email is going out, we are in Boston celebrating my niece’s high school graduation. Our business is humming.
Our marketing team created the email schedule and wrote this email.
Writing copy is their zone of genius.
We read it over and gave it the green light.
Our VA scheduled the email.
Attention to details is her zone of genius.
We can write our own copy. We can schedule our own emails. Sure. Of course we can.
If it’s not in our zone of genius, it’s not in our schedule.
What IS in our schedule?
So. Much. Coaching.
- One-on-one coaching
- Group coaching
- Free weekly community calls
- Podcast interviews
That’s where we flow. That’s where we’re aligned. So that’s where we spend our time.
Do you want to learn how to spend more time in your zone of genius?
You’re invited to flow with us in our next >>>FREE Masterclass: How to Build Your DREAM Team<<<, on Tuesday June 8th at 2 PM PT.
There is a secret sauce to getting your business over the 6-figure plateau: A team.
You are incredible and magical and amazing at what you do. And you will plateau if you continue to do it alone.
In this Masterclass, we will be teaching you what you need to know to take your business above and beyond 6-figures by bringing in aligned team members who are committed to your clients and your growth.
We are showing you how to go beyond hiring your neighbor just because it’s convenient.
We’re talking strategy. Intention. Overcoming limiting beliefs that keep you small.
Are you ready to join us in our zone of genius?
With love, intention, and so much work-life balance,
