You Can’t Build an Empire or Career on Your Own

Blog Images #35

I used to think that I could do everything on my own. 

When working as a leader at a high-growth startup, I struggled to let go of business development and sales when other members of my team could support me and connect with some clients better.

I told myself I couldn’t trust them to do as good of a job.

It was a lie.  

And I wasted time and resources.

Now, as a project-based entrepreneur, I struggled to get support to create content and post. 

I told myself that I needed to do it myself to save money.

It was a lie.

Now with just a little editing and posting support, I spend more time on more high-value tasks such as engaging with potential clients.


We do not live in a vacuum. You have to and should work with others, both professionally and personally.
