EPISODE 74 : The 5 mistakes I made when starting my business
Play • 16 min

I often joke about leaving my 9-5 job to open my business so that I can work 24/7.  But is it really a joke.  This statement is false in two parts ... the first, since entering the world of corporate finance, I have never worked a 9-5 job EVER.  And the second was that it was a joke ... because it is no joke.  There are moments where I feel like I work 24/7 and moments when I actually do.  And perhaps this is the first mistake all these leading coaches will tell me, that I'm making ... but when you run a business, when you are passionate about something like I am about what I do, there have been plenty of mistakes I've made along the way, but I don't think this is one of them. So join me as we unpack this ...


Mistake 1 : Thinking work would just land in my lap [4:44]

Mistake 2 : Trusting my immediate network would carry my business in the early stages [6:35]

Mistake 3 : Assuming what I had on offer was for everyone [8:10]

Mistake 4 : Thinking I knew what tech I needed to run my business [9:57]

Mistake 5 : Stretching myself too thin just to get work done [12:33]


Whilst these weren't the only mistakes I made, and continue to make, I might add, I love learning ... I'm sure you can relate.  Come take a listen. A x
