The following is a guest post by Kristin Kaufman, the Dallas-based Alignment, Inc. focuses on executive coaching and consulting. I had the pleasure of meeting Kristin a few years ago when I began my entrepreneurial career, experienced the launch of her first book and learned memorable tips that helped kick off my post-grad career in public relations and marketing.

Kaufman encourages business pros of all ages to discover or rediscover their core strength, revisit values and talents, and revisit their ultimate goals in order to exceed expectations and to move forward with confidence. Here are her late tips to motivate you in your current profession or to help you gain confidence in a new adventure.

Time is of the essence – in life and in business. Any successful business person will tell you that a sense of urgency is a critical success factor for success of any type. If we are worried about it ‘being too late’ then one thing is for sure…..time slows down for no one. There has NEVER been a better time to explore alternative ways to enrich one’s life – nothing more liberating or exciting than creating the life you want whatever that may be: financial freedom, time freedom and purpose.
