What’s In This Episode:
What has happened in the evolution of your business? Jill and Brad reminisce about how they felt when they first started their businesses… and what’s changed.
“When you’re 23, what do you have to lose?” – Brad
Jill began her first business around the age of 23 and felt pretty confident. Brad started his business more out of necessity and he didn’t want anyone to know how scared he was feeling – and faking otherwise just meant he felt like he couldn’t ask anyone for help.
“The stakes are higher now.” – Jill
Now that they’re more experienced in running their own businesses, the old fears are gone, but some of the anxiety remains. Once you’re established, the fear changes: How will you deal with the loss of revenue? Maintaining your reputation? Once you have some success, holding on too tightly can also cause your business to fail.
Perhaps the thing that’s changed the most? Not being afraid to ask for help.
How have you and your business evolved? Listen in!»
