Taking leaps of faith – Exciting? Hella scary? Worth it? All three?
In this episode I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) down with Jared Easley, who has had to take many leaps to grow Podcast Movement, the world’s largest podcast only conference with his business partner, Dan Franks. We talk about how to take leaps of faith, both financially and in our careers, and how you can approach these life changes when there is someone else in your life to consider. Jared was gracious enough to share his highs and lows, including what it takes to pursue a goal that may not reap financial rewards right away. We also talk about using the power of curiosity to ask yourself the right questions, especially when you feel like giving up.
Even if you’re not an entrepreneur there are a lot of great takeaways from this episode, such as what people in full-time jobs can do to find more satisfaction, such as saving up money for a sabbatical and even asking for a raise.
