Brand You Personal Branding

Ah, rejection. It's inevitable that we'll face it, yet we'll do anything possible to avoid it. In this episode, I share a little bit about how I deal with rejection (because I get rejected a lot).

See, we often take failure as a personal rejection. It's not. If people don't know the real you, it's not possible for them to reject the real you.

Whether you're looking to start a side-hustle, grow your own business, or just enter into a new phase of your relationships or career -- rejection is something you can not only deal with, but overcome.

We continue our current series on making a career pivot.

One of my dreams years ago was to leave my day job and make the leap into running my own business full-time (while still providing for my needs).

Perhaps you’ve also wanted to “make the leap”, so here are a few recommendations based on my journey. 

1. Set hard-and-fast financial goals.

2. Tap into resourcefulness (not just resources).

3. Experiment with various income streams.

4. Create predictable income for your first 3 months.

5. Get mentored by those that have actually done it.

There’s a lot of great content out there on making the leap from your day job to start a personal brand business.

The one issue I have is that the information shared (at least free, online) is often incomplete, and the one glaring omission involves the most important and pressing question of all:

“How much money do I need to make a successful pivot?”

In this episode, you'll get my 4-step process -- all from setting the financial goal you want to "leap" from, to how long you should be making money in your side-hustle before you go full time.
