Episode 17: How the World Sees You by Sally Hogshead

How the World Sees You by Sally Hogshead

Brilliant  Business Moms of the World, I am so excited to share this book with you.  I recently finished listening to How the World Sees You by Sally Hogshead.  After taking her test to discover what my unique advantages are, I already feel more empowered to be more of ME rather than conform to anyone else’s idea of perfection.  In addition, Sally delivers incredible advice for creating a team in which each member complements each other and brings different advantages to the table, rather than butt heads over differences or lean too far to one side of the spectrum.  Compared to other traditional personality tests, this one felt way more practical because the focus is on how you relate to others, and the ways in which you bring your very best to the table.

My sister, Sarah and my mom, Mary Beth (my business partners) also took the test.  You’ll have to tune in to hear what our results were and the really interesting ways in which we complement each other.  I looked at each of their reports and thought, “Exactly!  This makes PERFECT sense!”  I now have a greater appreciation for what they each bring to the table, rather than wonder why they don’t relate or work just like me.

Sally stresses the importance of creating your own unique anthem.  This is the statement that highlights YOU to the world.  What do you do best?  What do you bring to the table?  In what ways do you relate that are uniquely YOU?

My anthem?  I am an enthusiastic innovator!

The best news of all is that you can take the test for free until July 24th.  Grab all the details here. 

Whether you are a solopreneur, CEO of a large corporation, or a Mom enjoying life with kids, this test will be of value to you.   I can’t wait for you to take it!  Will you promise to share your results in the comments?  (Part of my personality is that I love new things and new people.  I’d LOVE to meet you!)

Best Quotes:
“You are the custodian of your personality.  It’s your responsibility to conserve it for its highest and best use.”
“100% yourself trumps 100% perfect any day.”

    I took the personality think by her last november…

    The Subtle Touch (Profound, Discerning, Self-sufficient). Mystique and Passion were the triggers.

    I remember thinking that it was by far the best personality type test I had ever taken. I think Sally does good work.

      I agree, Donnie! I’ve never taken a personality test that was so insightful. I feel like I understand myself better and also those around me better. I can totally see that for you! Mystique I notice right away. You are not an over-sharer, you like to keep things to yourself a lot, but yet you easily connect with others. If you listen to the podcast I talk about Sarah, Mom, and mine’s different types and what that means for us. I’m curious to know what Abby’s archetype is! Passion + Alert maybe?
