From Cubicle to CEO: The Entrepreneur’s Secret to Success - Live at Spark Portland 2019

In this episode, I’m sharing the speech that I gave at the Spark Portland Summit in Portland, Oregon. This was my first time speaking onstage and I got to share my story of how I quit my 9-5, and went on to build my business. It was such an incredible experience and I’m so grateful to my friend, Rachel O’Rourke for the invitation to speak (check out episode 5 for my interview with her), so sit back, enjoy, and I hope you all take something away from this.

Favorite Takeaways From This Episode

When it comes to pursuing a dream, you have to take a leap of faith FIRST before you figure out what you're doing.

Success is not final, and failure is not fatal. A "no," will always be a "no," until you try again to make a way. 

You'll never go wrong when you choose IMPACT over INCOME.

Any kind of rejection is your sign to do it yourself, and successful people are the master of seeing and seizing opportunities when there aren't any. If there's no seat at the table, build your own table.

We must endure a season of growth to enjoy a season of harvest. In order to reap the benefits of success, you have to work for it, and in order to grow, we must do the things that we feel unqualified to do over and over again.
