Here are some of the highlights Jon spoke to during his Flair Confidence podcast:

  • When asked how to stay mentally, physically and spiritually fit, Jon suggests keeping a Battle Rhythm, a discipline that allows him to get much more done. He also advices to allow for flux, time in your calendar where relationships happen.
  • He recommends creating Safety Nets that give you and your employees (or children) space to fail. “If you’re not falling down, you’re not getting better. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying enough”. He’s found that by having his own safety net allowed him to be more authentic, use his voice and show up.
  • By being a leader that exuding a level of confidence, it allows people to find you and to be confident themselves.
  • Allowing God to be the Captain of your Ship. Struggles are there for a reason. You are part of a lifeline story. Let go and let Him lead.
