217. Maintaining a Happy Heart While Building a Side Hustle
Connie’s motivational quote for today is by – Jim Rohn
“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”
Check Out These Highlights:
Recently I was asked if I was afraid or second-guessed myself when I opened my business 20 years ago. I had never thought about fear as part of my decision-making process. I think I felt that I would work hard, as I had always done, and would figure it out as I moved forward, so failure wasn’t an option. Now looking back, I’m not sure it was a naïve perspective, or it was pure determination and confidence in myself.
Don’t misunderstand, I took that leap of faith very seriously and had a business plan in place, money in the bank, and a clear vision of what I wanted to build. I had 2 babies at home, a mortgage, and my income was needed for us to survive. Things didn’t happen by accident. Throughout my life, anytime I chose to create something new, I developed a plan that is fluid and can change and be modified as needed, as I define this new creation.
Is starting a business for everyone? In the next half hour, my guests and I are going to discuss side hustles and how to create a legacy.
