Episode Summary

Whether you’re starting a business or you’ve been on your own entrepreneurial journal for over a decade like we have, we’ve got some lessons learned and tips for you in this episode!

When was the last time you set out to plant seeds for your business? No, not actual seeds, but tasks and to-do items that may not bear fruit for many months? This can seem difficult if you’re trying hard to generate revenue right now, but it’s an important way to shift your thinking to play the long-game with your biz.

We also discuss how to use an “experimenter’s mindset” with your business and practical next steps. So much of our positive progress and growth has come from putting our ideas and assumptions to the test (and not counting ideas out before giving them a chance!)

And we chat about comparison traps, dealing with feelings of overwhelm, and focusing on taking imperfect action. Lots of goodies for you this week!

QUESTION FOR YOU: What seeds are you planting for your business this year? (Feel free to comment with your answer on YouTube).
