  • Learning to understand how our bodies are expressing emotion in addition to verbalizing them.

  • Transitioning from corporate life to entrepreneur and running your own business.  There is a freedom to it, but you also need to have constraints. Constant learning how to do everything, who can I get help from, developing the self discipline to get things done.

  • The impatience of an entrepreneur striving for success. But needing to do the ground work to make your business work or the wheels fall off. Many new entrepreneurs don’t realize how much work is involved in the background of running a business and networking and marketing.

  • Being honest with yourself about what you are good at and being open to outsourcing the other tasks to maximize the time you can spend on more income producing activities. Thinking of it as an investment as opposed to a cost.

  • What stops you talking to people about your business and products and services?

  • “It’s not up to you, to decide what’s valuable for somebody -  it’s up to you to offer it, and for them to see the value.
