Social media can make it seem like successful entrepreneurs wake up one day, make a decision to quit their jobs and pursue their dreams and within months, they’re millionaires jet-setting around the world. But those of us who have started businesses know that’s a fairy tale.
Dr. Erika Brown of Dr. Erika By Design walked away from Corporate America a year ago to launch her business and reclaim control of her mental health. She soon discovered that the rules for success she was used to following in the workplace didn’t always apply to entrepreneurship.
During our conversation, Dr. Erika speaks vulnerably about entrepreneurship, being able to see the vision, overcoming roadblocks and celebrating successes while giving yourself grace to “figure it all out”.
In the episode I talk to Dr. Erika about:
- Figuring out where to start when you’re multi-passionate and want to do several things in business
- What she learned and unlearned in the transition from employee to entrepreneur
- Being vulnerable in the process of change
- Figuring out WHO you want to be, not just what you want to do
- What gets her moving when she wants to give up.
Make sure you stay until the end where Dr. Erika shares advice for those of you who have recently or are thinking about quitting their 9 to 5’s. Dr. Erika is also one of the co-authors of my new book, On Purpose: 12 Strategies to Reclaim Your Power and Change Your Life.
