Quotable of the Week

“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” -Plato

We’re sharing what we wish we knew when we started but we want to make sure to say this: The most important thing is to get started.  Your never going to know everything.  Whether you’re just starting a new venture or you want to start something new within your current venture, as Steven Pressfield writes, “Start before you’re ready.”


Highlights from the Episode

These are the top 5 things we wish we know when we first started.

  1. Do more marketing.
  2. We were brainwashed about wealth building and money management.  (Learn more about wealth building during entrepreneurship here.)
  3. The importance of focus.
  4. Relationships and masterminds are critical. 
  5. One’s zone of genius can change over time.

There are more but those are the top 5.

    Hey Brandon and Amanda! What a great topic. I love your top 5. I think from my own journey, the number 1 thing I wish I’d have known is also related to marketing, namely: hire a strategist as soon as you can. It seems so easy (and cheap!) to just wing it, but the investment of even just $200 a month can really make a difference in how well things take off. Because all those freebies out there are full of great tactics that work best as part of a strategy. And even the best marketing experts struggle to create such a strategy for themselves…

    Great advice Sabine! Agreed. Hiring a marketing strategist is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    This is great, Brandon and Amanda! We have barely started, so this is super helpful right now as we’re planning to dive in. It was really encouraging to hear “Start before you’re ready.” And everything else! Thank you!
