Be your own personal consultant

Disney Operations leaders
Jungle Jeff at the world-famous Jungle Cruise last night. This time of year it’s creatively renamed The Jingle Cruise.

Be your own personal consultant:

  • Identify performance gaps
  • Establish business case for bridging the gaps
  • Identify incremental outcomes from DIY or hiring outside
  • Establish business case for hiring help

The goal is to outsource your weaknesses and inefficiencies to experts and or purchase software to eliminate redundant and lower cost tasks.

She’ll continue to do project work

Disney corporate trainer
Personal Trainer for Cultural Transformation. If i don’t write a note or create an Apple reminder, an idea is likely to be lost.


She’ll continue to do project work. Beginner’s luck runs in my family. So thankful she didn’t say it would be impossible to continue helping, now that she is back working full time as an Executive Chef.

As ideas pop into my head i write them down to help her do her art better.

Personal trainer for cultural transformation.

This analogy is perfect because i can not exercise for someone else, but as a personal trainer, i can help architect personal organizational vibrancy from a lifetime of developing, honing, and validating the best approach for longterm health competitive immunity.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


He asked when was the last time i looked at his website

    Five daily blogs for 2,300+ consecutive days.


i asked him yesterday, “When was the last time you looked at my website?”

The hunch was correct.

It was before (and maybe never) i spent $700 to meet him in person.

He came highly recommended.

There is only so much i can do.

An entrepreneur should be ready for anything, including the obvious:

  • You will need to work harder than you have in the past
  • There are no guarantees
  • In the absence of direction from others, create your own

Without his appreciation for me “not quitting my full-time career” for six years while building an entrepreneurial business “in my spare time”, it’s going to be easier for me to be unimpressed with anything that looks like the lack of initiative on his part.

What’s the point of a consultant?

What’s the point of a consultant?

To do the work for you?

To inspire you to do the work yourself?

There appears to be a subtle yet compelling difference between a consultant and a contractor?

There’s a difference between a personal trainer and an Olympic athlete.

One knows what needs to be done. The other actually does it.
