Willpower is misunderstood.
It’s not something outside you. It’s not something you need to summon. It’s not something that fails you.
Obstacles are opportunities | Learn from the mistakes of others...
I’m doing things a little different in this episode. Instead of the typical interview, I’m taking control.
I’m not sharing my failures (I don’t know where to start). Instead I’m addressing the reasons why most business ideas die and never find life. And what you need to do to give your ideas a fighting chance.
Starting a service business wasn’t the first thing on Carey Green’s mind. He had been a pastor for the last 20 years but he felt a calling towards a different path.
Carey left his church and wondered what he was going to do. He pursued ideas that went nowhere fast. He was editing a friend’s podcast and his friend said, “Why don’t you turn this into a business?”
And he did.
I have the fortune to talk with Dan Crask, from Brand Shepherd today. When Dan started up their business they took on a client who they should’ve told, “No!”
They were new in business. They wanted to build something amazing for this company because the company had potential influence for referrals. So they took the job. And it lost money, time, and energy.
