Right? So without further ado, Patricia Hicks, welcome to the Freddy O. Show. Super pumped to have you on.

Patricia Hicks:
I'm excited to be here. Thanks for inviting me.

Freddy Owen:
Absolutely. So we're gonna get things off. Rolling really quick. First and foremost, who is Patricia Hicks?

Patricia Hicks:
Well I am a kingdom entrepreneur. I am an author, a speaker, trainer, coach, and I'd like to think of myself as a matchmaker. I like to match solutions to problems, ideas, to products, and I love matching people to tools and resources and each other.

Freddy Owen:
Very cool. So what is you said you were a kingdom entrepreneur. What exactly is that?

Patricia Hicks:
Well, a kingdom entrepreneur, first of all, I see myself as a, “Child of the King.” So I'm a Christian and that means that I'm about really helping serve people solve their problems and really saw the co-creating with God, his kingdom.

Freddy Owen:
Fantastic. I guess that means I'm a kingdom entrepreneur too. So I am Christian as well. That's fantastic. So with that being said, what would you say your main passion that you love to bring to the table to help others is?

Patricia Hicks:
Well my passion is really to help others live their best life. And that really means a life where a person is really living on purpose. It's balanced, it's abundant, they're blessing others. They're they're doing what they're passionate about and when they are stepping into a space, they, their light is shining wherever they go. They're focused on others. They are about meeting others needs with excellence and they're using their time wisely.

Freddy Owen:
Okay. So when you say that you have a history of doing this, can you tell us a little bit about your history and what you've done in the past?

Patricia Hicks:
Well, yes. So I have a company that's called the “Outcomes Management Group,” that I founded 25 years ago. And it bears the name outcomes because I'm really passionate about results. And so around 2008, I decided to take a look at why were some organizations and people getting better results than others. And I looked at 125 organizations that represented 50% were nonprofit, 25% were in the private sector and 25% were government. And what I found was that when people and organizations stayed focused on four key characteristics, they achieved extraordinary results. And that became a cute acronym “BEST”. And I can come back to that later. And then about, I guess, 2016, I was interested in moving into the online world and I was hosting some focus groups to get some feedback and primary, primarily millennial's showed up and I was curious as to why they were there. And they said, well, you know, we really wanted to see if your best could help us to get things done fast. And so at that point, I had not looked at the relationship between best and fast. So I went back to the drawing board and sure enough, I was able to find a relationship between best and fast. And it was at that point that I realized that I could really help people really live their best life. And that saw that incorporated this model of best and fast.

Freddy Owen:
So the best and fast is like your core values.

Patricia Hicks:
Yes. so let's talk about fast and why that ties to a best life. We don't really know how long we're here. We don't, no one knows, but we know we have a finite period of time. So therefore time has to become a value and you need to use that time really well. And typically what we've done is, you know, we decided to go along and we do things, but we're not looking at whether those things can really get done faster. And that's what I love about this millennial generation, because they're challenging us to say, Hey, do we have to always do it that way? Could we do it differently? And that led me to, yeah, could we do things faster? And if we really focus on our time and getting things done as fast as we can, and by goodness, we could probably make sure that we have this best life before it's time to go. So that's kinda how that all evolved.

Freddy Owen:
So if somebody were to come in to your, like your program, I know you have a, I believe it's a coaching program, correct? Yes. Okay. So they come to your coaching program. What do you look at? Like for instance, you know, being an entrepreneur, especially an online entrepreneur, you've been in it since 2016, you've talked to millennial's. And you know that a lot of people don't succeed in this space because a lot of it I think is because they don't have the, the right direction and they're maybe not utilizing their time. Cause I always believe that time is money and you don't, you can't get time back. And I know that ever since I've gotten older, time goes faster. It's like you can't grasp a hold of time. So you have to use what you have in front of you to the best of your ability. So what do you like really focus on when it comes to someone, for instance, starting an online business and they want to go to that next level, how would you help them? What would you do to help them?

Patricia Hicks:
Okay. So there's like five pieces to this. First is really helping them first get clarity about their destination to your point. You know, they want to go to the next level. What does that really mean? So we have to really get clarity about that. And then once there's clarity about here is what the next level means. Here's what it looks like. Let's take a look at you because you are going to be the driver of whether you to the next level. And now I'll bring in my “BEST”. So those four characteristics that I was talking about B is about bright and bright is about your image and your image is what allows you to attract. And of course, when we're in business, we need to be able to attract customers and partners and funders and so forth. E is about excellence and the characteristic that's tied to excellence is having standards.

Patricia Hicks:
And when you have standards that allows you to grow, that's the outcome. S is about satisfaction. It's my favorite discovery. And that's when you're focusing on meeting the needs and expectations of others and the outcome is energy and it takes energy to get things done. And then T is about time and meeting deadlines. And the people who are disciplined at managing their time are better able to seize opportunities. So you can probably see now that when you focus on all four of those areas collectively, that's why you can get those extraordinary results. So I have an assessment tool that allows you to take a look at where you are, so what's your best condition. So we want to see where we are. We want to see where their blind spots that we need to be cognizant of because that's going to all impact our ability to move to the next level. So that's the personal examination. And with that personal examination and where we want to go, we can now start thinking about what do you do? And, you know, create this, what I call a best roadmap, a blueprint that can begin to help you to chart your path. And now we have to also tie into this roadmap, looking at your speed, because we want to go as fast as we can. And there are six influencers of our speed. Would you like to know what those are?

Freddy Owen:
Absolutely. I'm intrigued. I mean, I, first of all, I want to say that I need to know where this assessment is because I like to see where I have. I haven't had

Patricia Hicks:
That, you know, where it is and that you could get it. Okay. So here are the six influencers and this came really from my millennials. You know, that forced me to take a look at speed and fast. So the first influencer that's the most significant influencer of speed is your environment. You see that?

Freddy Owen:
Okay. So your environment, as far as like what you are, what you have around you, like where you're working,

Patricia Hicks:
That's right, because that's where you spend most of your time. And so in that environment, you may not be aware because if you let's just say, people tend not to pay too much attention here. So it's influencing you, but you don't realize that it's influencing you. But if you just make some adjustments in your environment, all of a sudden you can boost your speed. You can make some adjustments that adjustments that will help you keep focused and eliminate distractions. You can make some adjustments that will allow you to have the energy that you need. You'll have, you can make adjustments that can help you to stay more focused. So you can do some things in your environment that will actually really boost your state. That's a good point. For instance, is a speed. Something that takes away speed. Would you say clutter is one of those things? It is.

Patricia Hicks:
And to your point, you know, right. People say, well, I can find it. And usually they can find it. They just don't realize that it's taking a little bit more time to locate it. That if it was, you know, or if it was organized and, and, and just how I set my desk up, you know, whatever my priorities are, how do I set it up? Where I have focus, where there things that remind me of what I'm trying to accomplish so that I don't allow other things get to get me off track from what I'm trying to accomplish. So that environment is just key. So that's number one. So we'll keep going real fast. So number two, it's all about people, relationships and relationships. Your life moves at the speed of relationships. And people have showed you about relationships and money and relationships and results.

Patricia Hicks:
Now I'm going to tell you how it relates to speed. So there are six different types of relationships that you need to have that influence your speed. One relationship, a very critical one is an accountability partner. You need somebody who you really trust, who loves you curious about you that are gonna, it's going to make sure that you're staying on point. My husband is my accountability partner. He wears me out, but I know he loves me. So it has to be, it has to be somebody that you know, that they love you. Cause they gotta call you. They gotta call you on it when your behavior gets out of alignment or when you're not doing things or they're checking on you and so on. So that's one and there are others, but I'm going to just go to the other one that I think is most critical here for let's just say this new person that we're talking about, do they have a mentor or a coach?

Patricia Hicks:
And that becomes essential because that's the one relationship that the greatest speed. If I don't have someone who's been where I'm wanting to go, then I have to figure it out myself. Now I can figure it out, but it will take longer than if I have someone who already has been there and can guide me, give me feedback, help me to avoid things and so on. So to my millennials, I was saying absolutely positively, without a doubt, you got to have a mentor. You gotta have a coach. And no matter what stage you are in life, when you're starting, whatever it is, you can better find a mentor or a coach because you're going to go slower in the absence of that relationship. So that's number two, number three, it's all about your mindset, right? So your mindset just think about it. If you think immediately “can't”, “but”, it slows you down.

Patricia Hicks:
It stopped you stop right there. Cause I can't do it or I won't happen. I mean it does. So your mindset is really critical to speed, to balance. Everybody tells you, you know, Oh, you know, you really need to be focused on balance. Well, balance impacts your speed and we can get that right? If we're sick, we're not able to get anything done. So we've got to make sure that we're balancing our mind, body and spirit said that that stays in balance because when any of those get out of balance, you're slow. You're really moving slower than you would. If you were imbalanced. Could I jump in there real quick? Yes.

Freddy Owen:
Balanced. This is a good, this is a good one because when I first started out, I was so focused on building the business aspect of it, spending time and you know, a ton of time focusing on in front of the computer and what I was doing as I was neglecting other things that were important. Like my health, my family, my wife was starting to say stuff, Hey, listen, you know, we're still here. And I realized that that was a huge problem I was running into. So now my days are not nearly like that. It's time to shut down and it's time to go to work. You know, as far as focus on what I'm doing, I think that's fantastic that, that you do teach that. What would you say to somebody? Cause let's go back to the mentor one, two, and then I'll let you finish up on that. What you were describing, but the mentor one, what would you say to somebody that you recommended a mentor, not a person, but they got a mentor. What, what's a sign of a bad mentor?

Patricia Hicks:
Well I think a sign of a bad mentor would be a person who really not focused on understanding you and what your needs are in a bill and, and wanting to be available to help you to achieve those, you know, what your goals and needs are. Okay. Very good. Very good. I'm sorry. That's okay. I love it. So balance is critical. And to your point, what we don't realize is that that impacts your speed. From the standpoint, if you work, work, work, work, work, you don't realize you think that you're being more productive, but the reality is you're not getting things done as well as you could. And as fast as you could, if you took breaks and so forth. So I even teach people how to build that into their day as well. So, and, and how to build in taking care of yourself into your day, into your actual work day so that you are keeping that day imbalance.

Patricia Hicks:
Okay. So the next area is communication. What we say and how we say it influences our speed example. Well this is so interesting. Let's think about I always tend to think about president Barack Obama is a good example of this. So he used the words. “Yes We Can” remember that. Uand, and those words are real interesting cause it wasn't “Yes I Can.” It wasn't “Yes You Can.” It was, “Yes We Can.” We can. And then think about it's it's if you said yes, we can. Our yes, we can. Our, yes, we can. You see, just depending upon how I say things can actually motivate somebody else to do the thing that I need for them to do,uif that's what I'm, you know, if that's what I, and of course, most of the times as entrepreneurs, we're needing to get people to do things, you know, either with us or for us, or, you know, whatever.

Patricia Hicks:
So how we say things is going to either move them to do it faster or take a while to get to where we want to go. So we want to really think about what words we're going to use and how we're going to say those things so that we can really get people going as fast as we need for them to move along with us. So so it's, and even today, the other piece is also where we communicate with young millennial's. You'd better text. If you're going to be trying to reach out, you need to phone them, or, you know, that's not going to work or email. So even where you communicate. So I always try to find out from people what their preferences of communication, so that I can go there. I don't have to waste time sending something. And then they say, well, I didn't get that.

Patricia Hicks:
Or I didn't see that, you know, I understand that front, this is going to be, how are we going to communicate? So, and listening to people to see what words they use so that I can use those words back, cause that helps them to connect with you and to all that. So communication is a big deal. Then the last area that's, most people will probably go like what it's called celebration celebrate. Now we don't do enough celebrating and think about it when you celebrate, you get excited about it and it encourages you to want to keep going. So if you wait until the end of something. So when we talk about moving to the next level, if we're going to wait and celebrate six months in as opposed to every step along the way, if we celebrate, I'm going to get geeked, I'm going to be excited.

Patricia Hicks:
You know, I, I compost that. Yeah. So now I can go on and do the next thing. So it, it, it really propels me to keep moving and I really ended up going faster than bumping in the things and not going so well. And that slows me down and, you know, and so on. So the celebration is really key to really helping you to move along faster. So those are my, those are my acceleration areas. And so again, that becomes a part of my, you know, my working with you is helping you to examine those things and help you to, you know, figure out how to use those, see, see where you are with your speed so that we can try to make some adjustments to get you going a little bit faster. And then the last thing that I like to focus on in this whole piece of course, would be, are we getting results?

Patricia Hicks:
Because the goal here is to get to the next level. So make sure that we're clear about, you know, what results we're going to need to make. You know, I mean, what results we are going to achieve and how are we measuring to make sure that we are achieving those results so that we can make adjustments where necessary, which will help us go faster. Because if we aren't measuring and we're not getting what we should at different points along the way we could end up getting somewhere and it's gonna really fit figure out, Oh, I'm not, we're not where we need to be. And now there's more time that we had expand into this than we needed to. So those are the sort of five key areas that I focus on when I'm working with someone.

Freddy Owen:
That's fantastic. I'm going to actually, I'm going to go back to, first of all, celebration, I think is, is really key because if you wait till you're finished, it could be like, when you're talking about celebration, like the baby steps, the small things that you, that you accomplish within your journey. Yes. Okay. I think that's fantastic. I think that I need to do that more. I think that if you have a you're a business and you might be going through a rough spot celebrate things that you may have done recently to overcome a roadblock or obstacle that you have in front of you right now. And then when you get that through that obstacle, it's just another celebration. Correct?

Patricia Hicks:
Right. Yep. That's right.

Freddy Owen:
And secondly, you brought the millennial's and how to communicate with them with like, for instance, text, I understand that they love texting. Do you ever encourage the people that all they do is text? Cause I feel that as sort of takes away an aspect of communication of their own, because they're so intent on just typing and they have a hard time getting face to face with people, or do you not see that?

Patricia Hicks:
Oh, no, absolutely. And so I want to help them to see the benefits of multiple ways of communicating. So just as they prefer to receive messages one way they have to be cognizant of the people that they're trying to reach and the lays and which they like to communicate. So that it's a reciprocal process. Communication is so helping them to see that is really, you know, very important. And the other piece that is really important is that in communication, 90% of our communication is really nonverbal. So when we can't see the other person, we can make assumptions about what the communication means or is saying that it might not be. And so therefore that is another variable that has to definitely be taken into consideration. And it makes me nervous today as we are in our pandemic and are moving to more communication via technology that this is going to be very challenging because communication is just much more than just the actual, you know, sending words or talking to someone, be you know, zoom. There's a lot that comes from that interaction with the person or person. So you are on point that we don't want to totally live by. But if I need to reach you, that's where the fast comes in, I know that that's how I got. Yeah. Yeah.

Freddy Owen:
And a lot of times, if I'm in a texting, you know, especially I've had friends where I've, I've texted back and forth and they're taking what I'm writing way out of context. It's like, they think I'm arguing with them, not arguing. And finally, I get off the texting I get on the phone. I'm like, bro, listen, we're not, I'm not mad. We're not fighting. I don't know what's but this is coming from, so it's, there's gotta to be, like you said, there's gotta be a balance.

Patricia Hicks:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Because it is, you know, we all process communication through our filters. We have different filters, you know, our past experiences and you know, just our perceptions of things. So you could say a word, you know, like boy and, and you mean nothing by it. And because of my cultural background, when you say, boy, I get offended because boy has a meaning to me that you didn't realize it had. And so when we're texting, that's how that can get escalated because if we're face to face and I, you know, I could it's, you can easily see that that was sort of offended might have offended me because she couldn't see that I squared it by eyes rolled my eyes or something. And you're going to say, Oh, something's going on with Pat. But if it's a text, you can't see me rolling, you know? And so you're just continuing on and now like taking everything you say, you know, now through this filter that I put it in that you didn't realize it was now residing in as you were talking to me.

Freddy Owen:
Yeah. Big time. Yeah. So what's the most important thing you've learned in your life? What was your life like before you learned it? And what was your life after you learned it? The most important thing.

Patricia Hicks:
Ooh. Oh. Cause they're so witty. Oh boy. You gotta pick one. Just one. I know you're making me choose, I am going to say that the most, maybe the most important thing is recognizing that it's important to, Oh, you're making me, I'm having a hard time. It's cause it's probably blend together, but okay. I'll just, I'll just, I'll just stick with this one. Yeah. When I was in my doctoral program, let's just say, cause you said be pre and post. Okay. So prior to my doctoral program, I grew up, my family was, my parents were very much, this is right. This is, and I was in a dichotomy of, you know, it was just either or, and then I got into my doctoral program and I had this experience where I was facilitating a family, you know, SIS counseling session, like, and when it was over, my instructor said, how did they go?

Patricia Hicks:
And I said, Oh, it was awful. And she said, awful. And she's he said, well, well, let's think about that. What, what went well? And I rattle off some things that went well and all of a sudden, just by her getting me to focus on something went well, I realized that everything didn't go bad. So immediately then I realized it really wasn't awful. Now it wasn't great, but it wasn't awful. So I realized that it was, there was a, you know, an ad in there. And, and I would say that that has been a really valuable lesson to me that I really don't see things anymore as either. Or I see things with and.

Freddy Owen:
So perspective perspective is huge because I have people that I've talked to and they say that they, everything is terrible. Their life is a wreck. When it's really not as like look around at the blessings you have, and the thing that the blessings you see and the blessings you don't see, it's crazy perspective is huge in life in general. So that's that's great. And I'm sorry if I, if I three off a little bit, but

Patricia Hicks:
I just had to choose that was all it was, I was just having, I was just trying to decide which of my big three was it. And I decided that would be it. Cause I want to say, can I just say this one thing that's, what's bothering me about today? You know, the, you know, we're in this pandemic. And so we hear well, the way it's other projected is today, let us tell you here's how many people have the virus. Who's how many people have died? Here's this, here's that. And so we get this picture that becomes like a one sided picture. And there's another side to the picture and we don't have conversation going that relates to both sides so that people can have an, an perspective. And so we have, and this is sort of going on in our country in so many ways. So therefore people are going either I'm this or I'm that. And we're seeing the intensity now of conflict because they're very few and's and there's no, we don't have any and's rising up in the leadership of any place in space. That's helping us to realize that each view has some, there is something in each view that we can appreciate until then that's, what's sort of bothering me. So that's why I picked that one because I'm getting annoyed that there is not, I'm not seeing, but, and the crew's active.

Freddy Owen:
It shouldn't be, in my opinion about choosing your side, yes. Life should be about the, about being able to have discussions and figure out the happy medium, because what happens is when you say choose your side, it's like a team mentality going to beat them and it gets nasty. So I, a hundred percent agree with you. That bothers me too. And hopefully we can shake that mentality because it doesn't do anybody any good. So I'm going to jump to how can people get a hold of you? And I know you're going to give away something for free today. So how, and we're going to have this all in the show notes, everybody. So you can she is a wealth of knowledge, 25 years doing this. And if you have been listening, you can see that she is fantastic, great knowledge, and you want to learn from her. So how can they get a hold of you and what are you going to be giving away today?

Patricia Hicks:
Okay, well, there are lots of places in spaces that I can be reached. You are going to provide everybody with the link, to my best life community. It's a free community. And it's a place that if you're interested in living your best life, that you want to come and be a part of, because I share a tools and resources and every day I'm, I'm putting out some information you know, that will motivate you and give you some ideas about your best life. So that's one place I am on Facebook and I have a “Be Your Best Fan” page, and that'll be posted as well so that you can join me on Facebook if you're there, I'm on Instagram. And so if that's where you are I am personally there. So that link will be available to you as well. I'm on LinkedIn. And so you can catch me there. So I'm just about everywhere. I also have a website that bestfast.org Which is pretty easy to, to remember, cause it's all about, you know, my movement. And I think those are all the places

Freddy Owen:
That's fantastic. It will be on the show notes, take advantage, join the community. Take advantage of her, the, the, a free giveaway that she has. Wealth of knowledge. Now, are you ready for the fun stuff? But a lot of it's, everything's fun. I enjoyed my, what job. Put that crazy questions. August a super hyper fast QA round, not real hard. So first one is who would you I'm sorry, what would you pick for your last meal and who would it be with? Oh, my,

Patricia Hicks:
My last meal. Does it have to be a person or could it be a group of people? One person. Oh, one person.

Freddy Owen:
It could be famous. Could not be famous.

Patricia Hicks:
And does it have to be someone that's living, you know, living? Yeah.

Freddy Owen:
No, no, not at all. Not at all.

Patricia Hicks:
Okay. So for my, my last meal I'm originally from Florida, so I love seafood and my absolutely favorite is crabs. So last meal, I love some crabs and since it's the person, it doesn't have to be someone here. It would definitely be Jesus Christ, because I would love him to help get me prepared for where I'm headed next.

Freddy Owen:
Amen to that. Okay. Here's another one. If you had to replace your hands with something other than hands or claws, what would you put at the end of your arms?

Patricia Hicks:
Oh gosh. What were they? Something that we replaced my hands. Oh, okay. I would, I would put my, I would add some eyes.

Freddy Owen:
Wow. I, that's a good question. I think that's a good answer. I mean, so you're going to have four eyes.

Patricia Hicks:
Yes, because that would help me with my blind spots.

Freddy Owen:
Boom, love that. Love that answer. And then what is something you enjoy doing that you think other people might think is a bit strange?

Patricia Hicks:
Well, I don't know the people that are around me, they think that the fact that I could just live out on the beach all day from sun up to sun down, is strange. But I love it sun up and down. I mean, I can literally all day just be on the beach.

Freddy Owen:
So, and plus with what you do, you can do that on the beach with a, you know, a hot spot and your computer, if you wanted to and just chill that way. I love the beach. You know, if I had a choice, well, I always say, you know, Kristy, that's my wife. What do you want to go? You want to go beach her mountains? I want to go to the mountains. I'm like, Ugh, but that's… She loves the mountains. I love the beach. I love sun, sun just reinvigorates me. And unfortunately where I live at right now, there's not a lot of it at points in time, but it's all good perspective, right? Perspective.

Patricia Hicks:
We are kindred spirits Freddy. That's my thing. And I'm in Columbus, Ohio. And so I had a hard time adjusting here because it's gray and I need my son. So I tell my husband I'm here because of love.

Freddy Owen:
I'm in Akron, Ohio. I'm here because of love too.

Patricia Hicks:
Okay. Here we see where we're kindred spirits. I love it. Are you a Buckeye?

Freddy Owen:
I don't really watch college football, I guess. I, yeah, I am. I, I'm a Buckeye. I love sports. I love. And that's another thing about this whole pandemic thing as it's taken away sports away from us, but not, but, and I know what's going to come back. Is that better? And I know it's going to come back. I'm learning. I'm a work in progress,

Freddy Owen:
Patricia. Thank you so much for being on the Freddy O. Show. You have been a wealth of knowledge and I just, I hope everybody takes advantage of what you had to offer today. Thank you so much. And you know, what, if you could say one last thing to the listeners, what would it be?

Patricia Hicks:
I would say only your best is good enough. So be your best.

Freddy Owen:
Boom. Thank you so much, Patricia. You're a rockstar.

Patricia Hicks:
Thank you so much.

    Hi Freddy. I really like your podcast. I’ll continue tuning in.

    This is the first time I hear a kingdom entrepreneur. But I like her. And she genuinely wants to help as many as she can. This has been an interesting episode. I hope all your other editions are as fun as this one. Thanks!

    Thank you for this opportunity to listen to Patricia, knowing that she is a Christian makes me feel very comfortable listening to her advice. Having someone that is passionate about what she does and that is not out there to exploit me is great. From her sound experience, it is evident that she is out to share her hard-gained experience. I learned well from her four characteristics for an entrepreneur

    In the overall topic of the site makes it clear that it’s about living your best life. I’m a certified NLP Master practitioner and know a little about the subject of the web site. But Fred Owen and you takes it to a whole new level comparing to my experience. I see it’s a podcast with you and Freddy Owen.

    The site expresses a lot of positive energy, and Patricia Hicks chronologically experiences makes the website very authentic and Your B.E.S.T thoughts, you get your B.E.S.T Results just fits in and of course I have downloaded your 30 pages e-book.  

    It’s a very long dialog for me since English is not my natural language but with you and Freddy Owen I think I get the point in what important think you talk about and you also have your 3 books before the dialogue starts.

    Patricia Hicks see herself as a Matchmaker, who likes to match solutions to problems, ideas, to products, and you love matching people to tools and resources and each other.

    And you also have all the social icons at last to comments.

    This is absolutely a special website in the most positive way to give a comment (if it’s okay to say that).

    I’ve never before heard about Patricia Hicks or win with Fred and this was an eye-opener. It’s great that so many people are looking for information to know themselves and to live better lives. What better way than to listen to a recording and have a list of the best life points. I think this is a great idea and one that I will be recommending to my friends.

    This is wonderful that you have created this BEST process to help others.   I agree that folks of any age need clarity about their destination point. I can see your point about how you spend most of your time to increase your speed, but the same would be true for what you focus on most of the time.  

    However, i have found that time is but concept create in our minds to help to understand our world.  Sure folks want things to happen quickly.  But often they will get frustrated and give up if things are not happening fast enough. 

    As far relationships, yes a good support group is great.  However, most people rely too much and feel that they need to depend on others.  In the end , there is nobody more important to you that yourself.   So I have found that if you love your self first, then you will have all the love and support that you will ever need.

    Dr. Hicks is a person with immense knowledge on how to improve ourselves for the better. At a time like this, people like her are needed more than ever. People who have been hurt by this crisis, have lost a sense of pride and worth. Her intellect on being a better person can provide him/her with better attitude about his/her self. Thank you for introducing her to people who may need her advice to improve themselves. That was a good interview. I thought it was raw and genuine.

    A totally different approach to an article, which I really enjoyed.  Patricia has every right to be very proud of what she has accomplished so far in her life.

    Found the interview to be fascinating, with  a lot of useful and informative information given.

    Think that if others see this you could start a new trend in the writing of articles.

    Your post with Patricia Hicks, PH. D. is very revealing of the reason shopping for a coach and mentor is so important.  This can be a strong support for your online business.  The ability that others have to see your problems, your progress, is well known.  We all know that it is easy to be objective about others problems. The part of the equation that is a bit more involved is learning to trust someone else’s ideas and suggestions of ways to move forward.  Do you want a business coach, a personal coach? A combination?  

    Her mention of organization and the importance of keeping organized hit home for me. I find it hard to stay organized. For months things go well, then all of a sudden, chaos!  Daily routines are interrupted, good habits destroyed.  All the things that I had worked so hard to attain.  I am sure that Patricia Hicks could offer suggestions about these times, and how to control them.  The time spent getting back on track would never happen without a daily check sheet.  How many online business builders use a daily checklist?  

    Thanks for the information about Patricia Hicks, and how she helps people.  A very accomplished and inspiring person.

    Hi,

    This is the first time i’ve seen radio in an article. Brilliant! ‘The Freddy ‘O’ Show’…..What does the ‘O’ mean?

    I definitely need goals, priorities and direction in my life!  Dr. Patricia Hicks has been a ‘bright spark’ from the beginning! Extraordinary woman with extraordinary results! I don’t know much about marketing, but you can apply marketing to everyday life.

    “Only your best is good enough. So be your best”

    (By the way, God gave His best, Jesus!)

    Dr Hicks loves matching people to tools and resources. I’ll definitely check out her website and podcast. I’ve downloaded the e-book. Thank you!

    I’m a poet and trying to connect to a faith based audience. I am extremely excited that Patricia is Kingdom God minded! (JOHN 10:16 ‘I HAVE OTHER SHEEP THAT ARE NOT OF THIS SHEEP PEN. I MUST BRING THEM ALSO. THEY TOO WILL LISTEN TO MY VOICE, AND THERE SHALL BE ONE FLOCK AND ONE SHEPHERD’ )

    With what God has blessed me with, i try, in His grace to balance my life and bless others. I am totally confident that the tools and resources Patricia has kindly given and shared, may bless my life more abundantly. Thanks be to God Almighty!

    Great interview on radio! Always great to put a face to the articles!

    ‘O’ Freddy, Freddy ‘O’ ,what does the ‘O’ stand for again?

    May God continue to bless you! 

    🎊Keep celebrating!🎉
