It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind, especially if we have a job that we don’t enjoy. And at some point, we are going to doubt whether we really are doing what’s right.
Of course, doing what we used to do and doing something we truly want to do both offer rewards. But, it’s important that we choose what rewards bring happiness and fulfillment in our lives, rather than a temporary fix.
The key is to start showing up for ourselves more instead of worrying about other people’s opinions. And it starts with believing that our passion will make an impact— to us and to the people we can help and inspire along the way.
In this episode, Daniel sits with Website Architect and The Brand Misfit, Charlene Brown. Like many entrepreneurs, Charlene’s journey started when she finally realized that she can do something bigger for herself and others. Almost a decade ago, Charlene focused on helping her fellow black women solopreneurs step up their tech game and improve their online visibility. Today, she still does while also teaching them strategies to grow their business.
Listen in as Daniel and Charlene discuss how to build an efficient work process, how to set your team up for success, why we should celebrate our wins more, what investing in ourselves better entails, and how we can keep up with the speed of our business’ growth.
