900. Why It’s OK Not To Reach Your Dreams

Lauren and I are talking about times in our lives when we were really manifesting something and it didn’t turn out the way we imagined it, but we’re so glad it happened that way because there was something even better on the other side. Lauren tells the story of how she landed at Lite Pink and realized that her entrepreneurial dream can happen inside someone else’s (aka mine!). We talk about the importance of creating a safe space for your employees to explore their passions and be honest about their career goals, which is something I learned the hard way. I share more about my journey to getting on fitness magazine covers and the breakthrough that I made about why I wasn’t being chosen by editors. Plus, we talk about optimizing all the little experiences and embracing the setbacks, no matter how challenging they might feel in the moment.
