This ONE THING is killing your business

Despite having that deep desire to grow, we struggle and fail to take the necessary steps to do so. Whether it’s trying to widen our skillset, learn something new, or grow our Amazon businesses, there’s that force that keeps us from moving forward. We procrastinate, get distracted, and delay making decisions for what we want to achieve.

What keeps us lazy? Why do we sit on the couch binging on Netflix instead of working towards goals we’ve set for ourselves?

In this episode, we discuss the one thing that prevents us from growing our Amazon businesses. We illustrate how the language we use in our everyday lives affects our mindset and explain why you shouldn’t make decisions to please everyone else. We reveal the roots of laziness and illustrate how to crush it by scheduling downtime. We also highlight how fear affects the way we decide and act as well as share a few tips and advice to overcome it. 

“We procrastinate because we are afraid in some capacity. Fear is an illusion that we think protects us from something.” - Kristin Ostrander
