Episode 59: Maggie Karshner

Fear is a dirty rotten liar… especially for entrepreneurs. And to deal with a liar you gotta call them out. That’s exactly what Maggie and I are doing in this episode. We take the fear-based myths of entrepreneurship and (lovingly) kick its ass out of your way. Prepare to feel liberated from the BS fear has been feeding you. Listen now!

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • SPOILER ALERT! Employment isn’t actually more “secure” or “safe.” Maggie’s got some perspective you can use to redefine security in entrepreneurship (and how you can feel more secure while doing your own thing).

  • Buddha — philosopher, spiritual leader, and business mindset coach? Maggie breaks down how you can use his wisdom to overcome real-life biz challenges… (including the ones we create in our minds).
  • Ever felt like you had to go it alone to be a true entrepreneur? Maggie reveals why that belief goes against our biology (plus its total BS!).
  • Let’s bust this myth: until you’ve put in your time and earned your “street cred,” it’s going to be hard to get customers and build a business. Not on your life. You’ve got something of value to offer here and now, beginner or not.

  • Phobias to freedom: hear the strategies Maggie used to overcome her near-paralyzing fear of needles and choreographed dancing (hint: and put them to use in your own life and business). 

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!
