entrepreneurship Mar 22, 2021
 

I am excited to share today’s guest, Casey Jourdan with you.  Casey is a business strategist and mentor who works with early-stage, primarily female entrepreneurs. 

Casey rejected the traditional life of the 9-5 so-called secure career path with benefits.  This is not just because of the effects of the impact to her brain from having been blown up in Iraq while she was serving in the military, but also as a result of some residual PTSD, but because of her feelings...

Sheeple to Wolf Pack

entrepreneurship Jan 19, 2021

One of the inevitable consequences of trying so hard to fit in is that I became a bit of a chameleon. I got so good at it that I didn't even realize the extent to which I was masking myself in order to be accepted by others. It never went so far that it could be considered being a phony or actually lying to people, it was just that I showed them the parts of me that they would like and approve of, while hiding the rest. You could say I was my own best agent and I was always auditioning for...

Being Original as an Entrepreneur

blog entrepreneurship Oct 21, 2020

It can be really scary to recognize that you can't do things the way everyone else does and you really don't want to, even if it "works." It just feels wrong, like you are denying your authentic self. This trait can be seen as obstinate, rebellious, insubordinate or stubborn. But I think it's simply being genuine and true to yourself when you don't think like everyone else. 

If you are an entrepreneur in the online world, like myself, there are hundreds of marketing and branding coaches...

He is a very pale, red-headed white guy with long hair, who always wears hats and is a brilliant, introverted engineer. She is an exuberant and delightful Jamaican woman who can captivate a room of strangers with her gregarious nature. They own a successful company together and a couple of houses. And now they are...

The Myth of Job Security

blog entrepreneurship Jul 02, 2020

I've heard countless people say they would never work for themselves because they need job security. They typically go on to explain their rationale, such as having children to support, a non-working spouse or a chronic medical condition necessitating group health insurance, or all of the above. Some will speak wistfully about the lure of self-employment, as though it is the ultimate work experience and they truly hope they will be able to achieve it "someday", while others scoff at the...
