I currently live in Brooklyn with my three little boys and husband. What can I say, I’m the unofficial -but official - Queen in my house. I love weird combinations of food (more on that later), going out (MOMS CAN DANCE TOO), and seeing the "A-HA" look on a founder's face when they unleash the story that has been buried in them and their business for way too long.
For better or for worse, social media has turned us all into investigative non-trustworthy skeptics.
WOW. How’s that for a personality trait? What Enneagram is that!??! By the way I have NO IDEA what mine is but that’s for a different email.
Nothing good…like really good…is ever easy. If it were…we’d ALL be doing it.
Your path to where you want to go in life will require work, sacrifice, putting your health first, saying no to things that get in the way, longer hours, earlier mornings, weekend time at your desk, etc.. It’s all just part of the process despite you seeing all these travel influencers in the Amalfi Coast “making millions in passive income.”
Your audience deserves a better story. They deserve a realistic story.
I wish more founders leaned into the setbacks and the struggle because that is the story that is far more helpful and has far more impact than any success metric.
Yes, I want to hear about your success, but please please tell me all the failures that you tried before and how you were able to rise up. THAT is my motivational kryptonite.
Those are the moments I cling to when I am in my lowest of lows in this ride and I want to give up.
What was a problem? The setback? The Crisis? The recovery? Where did you end up?
Stories in your favorite books follow structure. The same structure that you can apply to your own business stories.
