Michael, hats off to you and your journey thus far. I resonate so much with this story. Your biggest lesson is mine as well. I left my job at Google to try building my own brand in e-commerce… until I realized the worst thing you can do is to quit and then get started. As much as I’ve struggled over the past year, I’ve learned SO much about myself, what I really want to achieve in my life and above all, how habits, mindset, and personal development are the underlying current to success.
Planning — and being very clear about the outcome — are incredibly understated. We tend to plunge into things — but that’s the foolish way of doing things.
