In order to move forward, you have to take a step back and assess how you're moving through the process. Since it's the end of the first quarter, I thought I'd give you a quick recap of Q1 2018. I started the year out pretty strong, got hit by March and April - always really tough months for me, and learned a few lessons along the way. In this episode, I discuss three lessons I've learned this quarter: Plan ahead! If you're planning for January in January, you're too late. I procrastinated on planning my first quarter content and ended up not doing it until mid-late December. I'm paying for that by working double-time to get ahead. Is it a good decision for YOUR business? I had a few incidents and collaborations fall through that made me realize everybody out here is making a business decision so I need to start doing the same. That also means that when someone says No, it's not that they don't like you personally, it just may not be a good time investment or direction for their business. Somebody's always watching. I know sometimes it can seem like we're talking and no one's listening. As a result, we want to take shortcuts because we're like "no one is even going to see this." Don't do that! In this episode, I talk about how a prominent entrepreneur who declined my request to be on the show referred my podcast to her customers. The moral of the story is, plan ahead, mind YOUR business and be so dope that people want to bless you.
