Anybody who has ever done something new for the first time will tell you it's a bit stressful. Ask any entrepreneur how their stress-life is and they'll most likely tell you they're hanging by a thread. I say that from experience, because I've been all versions of stress management as an entrepreneur. But where does this stress come from? Well, Benjamin Dell, founder and CEO at Missinglettr.com is here with us today to chat briefly about just that.
Today we chat about what it means to say yes or no to something. I'm stoked that we've got BOTH Samatha Parker and Kathy Rasmussen with us. I really just love what they're putting out into the world and knew they would have a LOT to say on this month's topic of Risk and Rejection! We talk about how risk and rejection have played a part in the start of their new magazine, partnership, and business.
