Episode Description

How can you save a business from the brink of bankruptcy and grow it 2,000% in 10 years, and yet feel like it could all go away at any given moment?  Or face the fear, the weight, that you must be chief breadwinner…for you, your family, your co-founder and team’s family as well?  Fear is pervasive in our lives, and in the crazy world of startups and entrepreneurship, it is an always present participant.  In this episode, we have two entrepreneurs dealing with two different and yet similar fears, fears that entrepreneurs will know all too well.

Questions to challenge your monster:

1)   Is it true?

2)   Can you absolutely know it’s true?

3)   How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?

4)   Who would you be without that thought?

The hidden burdens in our work. We come to accept that every one of us can fail, fail to live the life we desire for ourselves, or even fail to uncover the desire itself.
