[Episode #207] Define Your Own Success

Thank you to LegalEase for sponsoring this episode.

Molly McGrath shares her definition of success, and what success means for entrepreneurs in a virtual world. She emphasizes that success goes beyond revenue and should encompass a sense of fulfillment and the freedom to pursue one’s passions. She also encourages entrepreneurs to take a step back and evaluate their situation if they feel overwhelmed and exhausted. She suggests that if joy and ease are lacking in one’s business, it may be time to redefine success and consider a fresh start. It is crucial to differentiate between money and growth activities and not focus solely on monetary goals. Molly emphasizes the need for individuals and teams to enjoy their work and feel fulfilled in their definition of success.
