119: Launching Through Fear and Starting Before You re Ready



Many ideas never make it off the table because that s all it is: an idea. Sustainable ideas are an answer to a problem or need; and, as launchers, it s important we define a problem and establish a solution with our ideas. Hannah Gronowski saw a need in her community, to inspire millennials to live purposeful lives. With a little fear and trepidation, she launched Generation Distinct. She didn t know what direction it would take, nor did she have all the players; but, she leapt into entrepreneurship and has learned valuable insights along her journey. Hear her thoughts on taking risks, why mediocrity is OK in certain situations, and more in today s episode.

Three Takeaways:

1. Share your idea with others.
Do you have an idea, but you re not quite sure what to do next? This is a great time to get others involved. Like Hannah shared in today s podcast, at Generation Distinct s inception, she involved a lot of people in the early stages to get feedback on her idea. Start sharing your idea with community leaders and people you trust to refine it and take it to the next level.

2. Don t wait for permission.
Sometimes, the best thing you can do is start. Often, people wait for the perfect timing or strategy, but it s better to start and improve rather than not start at all. Some of the best ideas are the ones with humble beginnings. There will be plenty of time to clarify your vision.

3. Focus on one area.
It s impossible to excel in all areas of your business; so instead, focus on one area to improve before moving on to the next. Then, invite other players to do the things you don t excel in.
