“We are masters and captains of our own ships. And most of the time, we know exactly what to do.”
— Julie Greenham
Be prepared — I get a little bit fired up in this episode! That’s because this episode’s topic is one that pops up far too often in the lives of entrepreneurs. Yes, even in my own life.
I want to talk about the act of asking permission for things… in our own businesses.
Put up your hand if you’re guilty of this. I’m guessing that a lot of listeners have caught themselves seeking the permission or approval of other people when making decisions in their role as founder and CEO.
This type of behaviour can often be traced back to childhood, to the idea of raising our hands, waiting our turns, and relying on authority figures to guide us.
But if we need to seek approval for every step that we want to take in our businesses, that slows us down… and can even stop us from taking action!
Listen now to learn how to stop asking permission, trust your gut, and own your role as CEO!
