Your Worst Case Scenario Really Is Not That Bad | Jessica Eley

Believe or not, your personal life does impact your entrepreneur life.


Jessica Eley is a mindset coach for entrepreneurs who need to bridge the gap between personal development and business. As Jessica says, you can’t have one without the other. Jessica talks about why it’s so important to be a little selfish and put your needs first. If you don’t, you’ll end up burned out and unable to serve those who need your talents the most! When you run your own business, it takes a huge mindset shift in order for you to make it out, and feel 100% comfortable with your journey.

Maven Moment


Before we wrap up this final episode for 2016, I want to talk about something Jessica mentioned on the interview — her transition out of corporate. I know so many of you today are struggling with trying to branch out and get out of that job you hate, hate, hate! Jessica mentioned that we’d rather stick to something that hurts us than venture out into uncertainty. Listen in to the end of the show to hear my story of what my ‘breaking point’ was, and why I had to leave my job to start fresh.
