Episode 084: Emotions & Business Can Be a Toxic Combination

Emotions, we all have them.  But what happens when we get over emotional about our business?  Life happens and inevitably something comes in to derail you from what needs to be done in your business.  Your emotional response in these moments determines the story you carry forward.

I remember the emotions I brought into my business during an embezzlement many years ago and it had the potential to totally crush me.  Fortunately, I was able to recognize it early, take the negative emotion out of it, and accept responsibility for my role. This was a huge shift for me and got me away from being the victim to taking an empowered position.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The danger that comes with bringing emotions into your business
  • How emotional triggers cause you to do things you normally wouldn’t
  • That pre-planning how you deal with inevitable problems should be a part of your business building mindset
