S04E11: Worried about failing before you even start? 3 strategies to stop this destructive habit.
This week I am sharing how you CAN stop worrying about failing before you even start.
If I had to identify one emotion that sabotages success the fastest, it's doubt. And once those doubts creep in, they tend to snowball and you can talk yourself out of a project or new direction that DID have every chance of success.
In this episode I share three practical ways to get rid of this kind of doubt so you can forge ahead and get started.
Oh and spoiler alert (kind of 😜) I was faraway with the fairies on my dates! Steven Bradbury won his Olympic gold medal in 2002 not 2018. It feels a lot more recent to me, clearly!
S04E10: Interview with Thomas 'TJ' Colaeizzi.
I'm so excited to speak with Thomas 'TJ' Colaeizzi, who spent nearly two decades as a high level executive in the fitness industry. And during that time, he realized social media was too important to overlook during the hiring process, and was frustrated when he could not find a compliance solution that got users consent and protected both employees and employers in the process. Understanding the risks of engaging in non compliance social media checks, TJ sought to create a solution on his own through LifeBrand. using artificial intelligence. LifeBrand's life brands technology provides compliant social media screening with the user's consent and can also perform social media health checks to deter and delete potentially harmful posts. I met TJ when we were co hosting an episode of 'Office Hours' with David Meltzer for Amazon and Apple TV and I loved his warmth, his passion for his business and his desire to help people overcome social media problems.
This interview provided so much wisdom on what an entrepreneur's journey is really like including:
- How early in life TJ's entrepreneurial ideas started:
- Why he chose to start LifeBrand even though his second child was being born in three weeks and there was all the chaos of a young family.
- How TJ managed and utilized friends and family funding in the initial stages;
- How TJ created openly and didn't worry about his idea being copied.
- The unexpected breakthrough that made all the difference;
And so much more!
