In last week’s episode we heard from Dorie about her entrepreneurial journey, the importance of planning for success, how to translate influence online into money, and more. This week is part two of our conversation with Dorie.

In this episode of the podcast we explore:

  • How to figure out which direction to go if you are interested in entrepreneurship
  • How to build a personal brand and keep it consistent
  • Where to start if you don’t even know what your personal brand should be
  • What Dorie does when she feels like quitting
  • Dorie’s advice for entrepreneurs who want to stand out

“So often, I think people get hung up around the idea of, “what is my passion, I have to follow my passion, oh, my God, I don’t know what my passion is.” And then they just spin their wheels, because they can’t pursue the thing if they don’t know what the thing is. And, it’s very stressful. I think that’s putting too much pressure on ourselves. If you know what your passion is, then God bless — do it. But if you don’t, don’t look for the perfect thing, look for what you’re curious about.” — Dorie Clark

Now more than ever, people are moving from full-time employment to entrepreneurship. We are collectively realizing that the only job security that exists is the one that you create for yourself, but how? My wife Blake and I are successful entrepreneurs who both made the transition while we had full-time jobs. You can learn how here.
