Episode 81: Jude Charles

When Jude first started his business at 17, all he had were some business cards and the faith of his teacher. Turns out, that was all he needed to get started! There were plenty of tough lessons along the way (car repos, imposter syndrome, and major burnout to name a few). But even with the setbacks, Jude developed his own way of reminding himself just how far he’d come, which helped him believe he could keep going. If you’ve lost sight of your progress, this one’s for you. 

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • A tale of two phone calls: five years in, Jude got a call that his car was being repossessed. Shortly after, he got a call from a client raving about his work. Here’s how Jude handled the “good news” on a day when he felt like throwing in the towel…

  • No one likes a promise breaker… so why do we break the ones we make to ourselves? I’ve got a little spin I put on my own promises to ensure I don’t chicken out (and you can borrow this to keep yourself accountable, too).

  • A small stack of business cards changed Jude’s life… but it was what the cards represented that was the real game changer. How can you find might power in tiny everyday things? Jude’s got some major inspo for you.

  • Check out one of the most effective ways I know to track your progress (and it doesn’t require any special software or a complex tech learning curve). And it turns out Jude has been using this method for years to help remind him how far he’s come!

  • I keep mine on my computer and it’s my support crew when I’m in my feels. Jude keeps his on his phone and it helped him pull him out of a major biz low. What is this secret feel-good file? Listen to find out (and maybe start your own?)…  

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