WELCOME TO SATURDAY BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT, WHERE WE FEATURE A DIFFERENT BUSINESS EVERY SATURDAY!
This week we are featuring
Linda Cuzzone of Southwestern Consulting
How long have you been in business?
Been in the industry 12yrs
What is your business all about? (services, products, etc)
Coaching business professionals in strategy to take their business to the next level.
What makes your business unique?
Everyone needs a coach. With the processes and tools I have in place we not only tackle the personal hurdles but we tackle the things keeping businesses from growing- whether it be finding the right employees, implementing the right strategy, or knowing the right numbers that need to happen to grow and what is within your own control.
What made you start your business?
I have a passion to not only help people but also the experience backing and proving what I do works- working for Southwestern Consulting was the perfect fit- I was made for this!
What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful business owner?
Time management, strategy, mindset, and purpose - without one of these you don’t have the other.
What three pieces of advice would you give to someone who wants to launch their own business?
Its’ ok to ask for help, It’s ok to fail, and most importantly its critical to invest in yourself the same way you are investing in your business.
Who has been your greatest inspiration? Or what book has inspired you the most? Or what is your favorite book?
My dad is my greatest inspiration he taught me work ethics, and how important it is to pour into people’s lives without expecting anything in return. My current favorite books include, Girl Wash your Face, You are a Badass, and The Travelers Gift- I assign these books to my clients as well.
How do you conquer those moments of doubt that so often stifle or trip up or stop so many?
Positive Affirmations get me through these moments- specifically “People need me more than I need them” and “I will move mountains”- the mind is your most powerful ally but can also be your biggest enemy- that is your choice.
Final note for those you people who need to be reminded – “It is not about choosing what you want right now. It is about choosing what you want the most.”
