Is there something that you’ve always wanted to do but the idea of failing freaks you out so you’d rather do nothing instead? 

Sure, things may not work out perfectly all the time. There are hiccups along the way where falling is inevitable. 

But falling is not failing.

Falling is when you get back on your feet to start again.

Failing is when you never try at all.

In today’s episode, I talk about my half-marathon experience, the lessons I’ve learned from falling, and how you can apply them to your business as well.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • My half-marathon story
  • Why you need to do something even if it’s not your best
  • How showing up for yourself is an investment
  • Why you can’t compare apples with airplanes
  • Training with your tribe and people
