Stop Analyzing and Start Acting: Taking a Leap of Faith in Entrepreneurship is Vital to Success with Lisa Govro
Episode Summary –
Many aspiring entrepreneurs tend to get stuck in the planning phase of their business and become overwhelmed by analysis paralysis. However, sometimes it's necessary to take a leap of faith and go for it without knowing every single detail. Even the most successful entrepreneurs didn't have everything figured out when they started their first business, so don't let fear hold you back from achieving your goals. Remember that everyone makes mistakes and learns from them along the way. Trust yourself and take the plunge – you've got this!
“Not many people have it all figured out, especially in their first business, we are all working through life making mistakes and learning from them.”
No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, taking action is vital to making progress. Don't be afraid to jump in and start working towards your goals. No one has it all figured out, and you won't be the first or the last to face challenges along the way. Staying humble, listening, and learning from your mistakes and those who have been successful before you is key to achieving success as an entrepreneur. Remember that success is not a destination but a journey – so keep going and never give up.

About Lisa Govro –
In 2012 Lisa Govro founded Big Heart Tea Co., a tea company on a covert mission to help people feel good through healing herbs and tea. Lisa is trained in Ayurveda and combines her food medicine and culinary knowledge to create a growing line of herbal blends that taste good and make you feel good.

Where the land and the farm workers are respected throughout the entire life of the ingredient.”
