"THERE’S A HIDDEN BLESSING IN EVERYTHING WE GO THROUGH IN LIFE.” Running your own business can be one of the hardest things on you mentally. It’s a very masculine dominated world, and there’s often times not enough love. I often notice I’m being hard on myself, especially when things go wrong. All of this got me thinking about the important words I received in the past from Sara Blakely. If you don’t know Sara, she is the CEO of Spanx. She is the YOUNGEST female self made billionaire in America. She didn’t do that by going to war with her competitors; she did it through love and encouragement. Along her route she also suffered from severe grief, having lost 11 people that were close to her in a very short period of time. Listen to how you can be kind to yourself, and be successful in business, on Episode 612. In This Episode You Will Learn: The one thing that will help you the most in your life (00:52) What people said to her when she started her business (1:50) How she was able to build a business differently (2:32) The grief she has had to encounter (2:50) Sara’s views on our mortality (3:21) Plus much, much more
