Do you have a good handle on what your strengths are? When was the last time you took stock of where you excel and where you need support? Too often business leaders take this important aspect of personal development for granted! On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and innovator Nate Lind. In his conversation with Jeremy, Nate opens up about his childhood, steps he takes to stay in the moment with his family, how he discovered and played to his strengths, challenges he has faced along the way, and much more. You don’t want to miss a minute of this fascinating episode featuring Nate!

Let’s face it, life as a parent and business leader is not for the faint of heart. What do you do to keep a handle on all of it? Do you try to keep a balanced life segmenting work, your social life, family time, etc.? Many business professionals are realizing that balance is a myth, at the end of the day you have to decide who you want to disappoint. Learning from his mistakes, Nate Lind decided to take the bold move of prioritizing his family time by putting his phone on “Airplane mode” so work wouldn’t interfere. Have you had to draw a clear line in the sand like Nate?

How well do you know yourself? If you had to list out your strengths right now in an articulate manner, could you? Most people are shy when it comes to talking about their abilities and “superpowers” but if you don’t know where your strengths are, how will you know where you come up short? Nate Lind is a business leader who has learned the hard way about what he is great at and where he needs others to help fill in the gaps. Admitting where you need help is not an easy thing to identify, it takes humility! Don’t be afraid of this important step; it shows that you have what it takes to grow as a leader.

Once you have a good idea on where your strengths are and where you need help, you can start building a team that will be unstoppable! Too often business leaders go through their career with a dysfunctional team; this often happens because they fail to recruit team members who complement their strengths. Looking back on his career, Nate Lind says that hiring a CFO that knew her field inside and out was one of the best decisions that he made. Finding the right person for this role wasn’t easy, Nate had to pay for the level of productivity that he needed at a high level, but he says that he’d gladly do it again. What have you done to build a solid team in your organization?

What mindset do you have when it comes to your industry? Do you live in constant fear that you are going to get knocked off by one of your competitors or do you have a more collaborative mindset? While some industries are too cutthroat for a collaborative approach, consider Nate Lind’s perspective. The ecommerce industry is not an environment where everyone is sitting around helping each other succeed; it is very competitive. Nate and his team at Adsum are working to lower the intensity of that environment so the level of opportunity increases. What can you learn from Nate’s approach?
