“don’t be afraid to fail , don’t be afraid to start something that might not possibly work out. But also if you start something new especially if you have a full-time job and you try to start a new business because you have a great idea or you have a great product do your research, make sure you speak to everyone in that field, spend as much time as you can researching it. And also if you are not ready to start full-time try doing it part-time first, try not to concentrate all of your time in the new venture but try to do it part-time outside of your work and then little by little if the opportunity is right it will evolve into a full-time opportunity”…[Listen for More]

“live in the moment as clichéd as that might sound. What’s so interesting about our success as entrepreneurs is, we are constantly obsessed with what we are going to do next. And our obsession with what it is we are going to do next keeps us from doing what we are supposed to be doing right now as effectively as possible. When an entrepreneur can reduce their stress, they make really great decisions. Really great decisions lead to growth in your business. Really great decisions are impossible if you are obsessed with stress and anxiety. So, for entrepreneurs I say obsess with the present moment, just be today and focus on what it is you are supposed to do now.

“gain clarity on your purpose. What is so important for us to do is to figure out the why behind the what we are doing. We are driven by the what right. Many of us say we are all driven people. We are working hard, we are disciplined but if we can remember the why which is the purpose, the anchor behind what we are doing it’s going to help us to go so much further. I find the best way to get that clarity is to visualise the end result. Where do you want to be? Where do you want to end up ultimately? What mark do you want to leave on the world when you are gone? When we can gain that clarity and figure out where we are, we can visualise ourselves the end of that path the journey in the middle become so much easier to be able to navigate.

“connecting with other people that get it: I think that’s a key one. But I think another one that I would add is trying to understand your past, understand your stories. There is a lot of power in the unconscious part of our mind, there is a lot of power in this idea of a heroes journey. In a lot of mythology there is this idea that a hero has an early wound. And for a lot of us that happens in our childhood, maybe it’s trauma, maybe it’s where you are born. And in order to be a hero they go through this whole process where the wound becomes the strength and one is able to incorporate it. And I think if entrepreneurs can really take the time either through psychotherapy or coaching or just through reading books or doing self inquiry they can start to understand their life story and draw power from the things they are ashamed of because everybody has those things. But there is a way to reframe it, a way to fail through it and process it and those become our biggest strengths and those become what eventually contributes to bring our genius out into the world”…[Listen for More]
