Brief Show Notes:


Entrepreneurial leaders can suffer from commitment phobia, when it is obvious, that they must commit themselves to take actions that will create business success. On the other hand, there are entrepreneurial leaders that are not conscious of what it takes to reach their desired goals because they are blinded by the right now, day-to-day obstacles of running a business. Or, could it be that entrepreneurial leaders do not suffer from commitment phobia instead they realize what needs to be done, are not blinded by the right now obstacles, but they feel they have to finish their “plan of getting things together” before they embark on the journey that will help them achieve their biggest goals?
