316: Why It Doesn't Matter That Someone Else Had Your Idea First
We’re at epidemic status in the business and entrepreneurial world. It's a mindset epidemic more than anything else. The creative- and entrepreneurial-minded often get held back by the belief that an idea has already been done, or the market is too saturated, so they shouldn't jump into a space they're interested in pursuing because too many people are already doing that thing. If you've been held back by the fear that something's already been done, I want you to know that your individual approach, your unique background and one-of-a-kind experiences have NEVER been utilized and they will NEVER be utilized if you keep falling prey to this lie. There is enough to go around, there is room for you at the table and by the end of this episode, I hope you truly believe that, too. Press play right now. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY:

312: Defining Enough As an Entrepreneur
“All of our friends push way too hard and compromise way too much sanity.” Whew. What a statement. I was texting one of my mentors-turned-friends when he said that to me. We were talking about this past year in my business and personal life, I shared I’d worked the least but felt the most success. I was living out the scene of success I had in my head for so long. The hustle mentality and culture that’s being crafted around entrepreneurship is making us believe that hustle equals happiness. But that’s the opposite of what I’ve encountered because I defined “enough” for myself along time ago. What would it look like if you defined enough for you and your business, freed up time to explore your passions, side hustles, or just rest? How could that change your life? Let’s find your own threshold of success. Let’s ditch pushing too hard and compromising your sanity. This episode will help you master your own mindset and define “enough”. GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY:
