DESCRIPTION

Einstein said it best: You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The book The Gap & The Gain by Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy has been an absolute game changer for my business -- so much, in fact, that I’ve dedicated two episodes to exploring its concepts. 

The first episode, which I highly recommend you listen to, is all about the importance of being grateful for how much you’ve accomplished (The Gain), as opposed to focusing on what you haven’t (The Gap). You can check it out here

But in this episode, sweet friend, I dive into another major theme of the book: Unhealthy attachments. 

You’ve likely heard about unhealthy attachments when it comes to romantic relationships, but you don’t hear much about them when it comes to growing your business. 

It’s really important to be aware of as an entrepreneur, because holding on to something if it’s not working -- a goal, product, employee, etc. – can be counterproductive to scaling and growth.

I know I’ve had unhealthy attachments to certain parts of my business in the past, and you’ll hear about how I unraveled some of them in this episode.

You’ll also have an opportunity to analyze your own business -- what’s working, what’s not, and how to let go of what isn’t serving you.

I hope you find these concepts as fascinating and enlightening as I do. Enjoy!
