September 2021 marks 5 years for Circle270Media Podcast Consultants.

And what a 5 years it’s been.

I wanted to put together a quick “look back” for me, and for anyone else looking for advice, incentive, or insight, on how to march forward from working for someone else to working for yourself.

What have I learned?

  • Trust your gut instincts on when to start.
  • Surround yourself with trusted people to hold you accountable.
  • Be open to any and all opportunities.
  • Protect your time.
  • But, put in the time, with focus.
  • Always have “plan B.”

What should have I done earlier?

  • Engaged with a business manager and/or mentor.
