James Wedmore:

Pushing Outside of Our Comfort Zones

PART 1

If we were sitting down having coffee together and you asked me what one of the biggest lessons I’ve had to learn in business, I would tell you this: There have been too many times to count in my business where I have let the fear of what others might think of me get in the way. It was always way easier just to stay put in my little comfort zone that I had built nicely for myself.

Well, you know what happens when we let fear creep in and keep us in our comfort zones?

Nothing.

Yep, absolutely nothing happens.

Nothing happens in our businesses. Nothing happens in our own personal development. No growth takes place, there are no clients to buy our products, and we just stay stagnant.

But the growth? The success? That happens on the outside of our comfort zones. Which is why I’m so excited for you to hear today’s special two-part episode!

For Part One of this Two Part series of the Business With Impact podcast, I'm interviewing one of my good friends (and my own business coach) James Wedmore, founder of the Mind Your Business Podcast and his flagship program, Business By Design.

>> At 6:58, James talks all about mistakes (including some big ones he’s made) and how entrepreneurs must learn to just get used to them – mistakes are a part of our businesses and our growth. James walks us through some practical steps to working through our mistakes.

>> At 11:58, James talks all about our comfort zones and how we can literally become imprisoned by the thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of others. He walks us through how to overcome that fear and break out of our entrepreneurial comfort zones so we can step into the lives we’re called to live.

>> At 19:58, He talks all about the WRONG reasons people start a business and why they usually fail, before going on to explain all the RIGHT reasons we should pursue our business dreams. He ends Part 1 explaining what we can do to set our business on the right track and how we can actually make money in the process.
