Rock Your Brand Podcast


Are you ready to take your brand to the next level of growth? What do you need to focus on right now to get started? How do you push through the challenges and take action? If you need a little push in the right direction - you’ve come to the right place - it’s time for another Friday Jam Session here on the Rock Your Brand Podcast! On this episode, you’ll get to sit in on a Friday morning session of my Take Action Crew conversations - this is where I take on questions as they come to me live from followers like you! Make sure to learn more about the Take Action Crew in the resource section at the end of this post! 

Where do I start? 

Let’s face it - there is no perfect road map to life as an entrepreneur. Some leaders start their business early in their career, some take a few years to build up the courage to branch out on their own - that’s ok! The truth is, everyone has to decide when they are ready to flip that switch from inaction to action. If you haven’t taken that first step yet, what are you waiting for? There will never be a “perfect time” to start taking matters into your own hand - you just have to make that leap!

Finding the right partner

Have you considered taking the bold step of entering into a business partnership? What are some of the red flags you are looking for? Have you put together a pros and cons list yet? For many business leaders, there will never be the “right partner” they are better off calling the shots on their own. If you are considering entering into a business partnership I’d encourage you to take your time talking through the roles and responsibilities carefully. In much the same way you’d cautiously enter into a romantic relationship - a business relationship needs to be approached cautiously! 

What are you waiting for? 

I get it, there are a ton of reasons why now isn’t the best time to start your business - we are in the middle of a pandemic after all! When is the best time to start your business or that next project? If you wait until the conditions are just right, they will never come! From planning your next product to creating that next piece of content, you can’t let fear stand in the way. Do you have a game plan to move past the things that hold you back? What are you waiting for? Tune into this episode to hear more as I address tons of questions from leaders like you!
