Episode 318: My Business Is Having A Midlife Crisis (FS318)

Is the success that you have now what you set out for? When you reach a milestone in your business does it live up to the expectations you had? Are you where you are supposed to be?

These are burning questions a lot of us, as entrepreneurs, have and that we, at the Fizzle Show, are going to try and help you answer. We are all on a constantly evolving path and analyzing and becoming comfortable on this journey is at least half the battle!

In this episode we pose the questions that are related to this somewhat elusive idea. We talk about what is most meaningful and fulfilling in your work and in your life in general and we consider how displacing some of the stresses of working solely on your own business can lead to more contentment and success!

We also talk about creating and telling real stories, finding where you need to be and share three big tips for fining your ideal lifestyle and work within that. So for all this and more great ideas to boot, be sure to join us on the Fizzle Show today!
