Listen to the Episode

Thoughts from Jennifer:

Transitioning out of corporate

  • Transition in such a way you aren’t unbelievably stressed.

  • You are not your business. We are too interconnected with our identity and the business’s identity and it can hinder our profitability.

  • If we are focused on huge profits, we aren’t focused enough on our clients. The profits come from engaging with our clients.

Mindset

  • What are mindsets that hold us back from being profitable?

  • What excuses are we holding on to that keep us unprofitable?

  • Profits come from serving well.

Fear

  • Fear can come from being successful.

  • Fear happens when you begin to push outside of your comfort zone.

  • The feeling of fear and excitement are the same. It doesn’t have to be fear if you don’t want it to be. Choose excitement instead!

Planning

  • It is important to balance physical time, energy and self-care.

  • Step out of busy, busy, busy and be more strategic. This allows us to get more done in the day.

  • Create times of silence.
