Conversation Notes from this Episode

  • Her different way of thinking led to the creation of her business.
  • She followed her instincts and now she has her own radio store and a published book in a brick and mortar store.  Awesome!
  • “Risk just becomes riskier.”
  • The real learning starts when everything starts falling apart.
  • Don’t let other people tell you who you are…ever!
  • Put in the extra effort and don’t do what all of your competitors are doing.  Be different and offer them more value than everyone else.
  • An outside perspective can show you value that you would have otherwise missed.
  • Be married to only a few things in your business and be flexible with everything else.
  • Get really clear on what you are doing! – What is the worst thing that someone could say about your business?  Build your business around that.
  • Consider the outcome of your choices.
  • Stay in your lane and do your stuff, your own way.
  • Give yourself a break from what everyone else is doing.  Get away from social media and unplug until you get centered in what you are trying to do.
