Teneshia Jackson Warner: Commit to the Finish Line

With so much going on the world, I have to acknowledge the fact that people are being stretched. Between finances, mental health, physical health, and personal challenges, we have been forced to stretch ourselves beyond our comfort zones, expand our thinking and open our minds in order to find a new normal.

Some of us are embracing the stretch voluntarily, while others are trying to run away from the stretch. But although this season of growth is inevitable, we all need the tools and capacity to move through the stretch with grace and maximize the time we have remaining this year.

One of today’s most effective coaches for entrepreneurs, Teneshia Jackson Warner is the perfect person to help you stretch yourself and make your 2020 goals come true.

She is the founder and CEO of the multicultural marketing firm, EGAMI Group, Creator of The Dream Project, and Author of The Big Stretch: 90 Days to Expand Your Dreams, Crush Your Goals, and Create Your Own Success.  

In today’s episode, Teneshia walks us through a “career workout” routine designed to move you from idea to goal and commit to the finish line.

First, you’ll learn what type of dreamer you are: Hobby, Career, Make-It-Happen, Activist, or CEO. Based on that, you will discover your Dreamer’s Risk Tolerance and understand your Dreamer’s Ancestry to help gauge how much time, support, and resources you can apply toward your Stretch goal.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • How The Dream Project became a book – 9:55
  • Starting the Race to Finish Strong – 12:05
  • How To Get Through Moments When You Question Your Dream – 20:30
  • The Five Types of Dreamers – 25:59
  • The Four Phases to The Big Stretch and Manifesting Your Dream – 33:00

This episode is brought to you by my new book, Redefine Wealth for Yourself. We have compiled the greatest lessons and exercises that we’ve learned on the Redefining Wealth Podcast to bring you the ultimate guide to redefine wealth for yourself.
