“We forget that everything we do or decide can be changed, or the course can be corrected. We can change directions whenever we please.”

If you’re the type of person who downloads freebies, signs up for courses and masterclasses, and subscribes to newsletters, you’ll want to listen to this episode!

This week, I’m reaching out to all of the quiet powerhouses who have no problem consuming content — but find that they may have some trouble putting their lessons into action.

Many of us buy business books or register for webinars with the very best intentions — this time, we tell ourselves, we’re really going to use our new knowledge to take our businesses to the next level by implementing new techniques or working on our mindset shifts.

But, somehow, we wind up feeling blocked when we actually try to make those changes!

As entrepreneurs, we tend to be fearful once we’ve consumed a lot of content, because we believe that we have to execute things PERFECTLY in order to succeed.

Full disclosure: I’ve been there myself, many times.

From conquering perfectionism to recognizing and honouring your past achievements, this episode will explore how to shift from intention to implementation more comfortably!

It all starts right now — just press play.

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why you can sometimes become stuck in ‘learning mode’ — and the mindset shift that will help you overcome the fear of not being ready to move forward
  • The importance of becoming okay with the idea of “good enough” and being open to learning from imperfections
  • Why you need to look back in addition to looking ahead (and how it can help to boost your confidence)

P.S. If you enjoy the podcast, please consider leaving a 5-star rating and review — it’ll help me reach other introverted entrepreneurs.
