Five Badass Q&As
Q1: Coach Dan, can you tell us about the mistake that cost you $80,000 and how you bounced back?
A1: Back in 2016, I hired a pathological liar who destroyed my marketing company, costing me $80,000. It was a painful experience, but it forced me to pivot and pursue my true passion—helping others as a business coach. This journey from the floor to the stage was a massive transformation.
Q2: What’s the difference between internal and external problems, and why is it important to solve internal problems first?
A2: Internal problems are about self-perception and beliefs, while external problems are situational. Solving internal issues is crucial because our internal state influences how we handle external challenges. Our minds focus on safety, often holding us back from taking necessary risks.
Q3: How can entrepreneurs learn to take more significant risks without being paralyzed by fear?
A3: Entrepreneurs need to understand that fear is valid but often exaggerated. By building a relationship with their fears and showing self-compassion, they can reduce stress and take calculated risks. It’s about recognizing that fear is trying to protect us, not paralyze us.
Q4: What advice would you give someone who feels like giving up after a failure?
A4: Don’t give up after the first setback. Consider pivoting if you’ve gone splat against the wall five or six times and it’s still not working. Study successful people; they fail often but learn from each failure. Trust empirical evidence over your feelings.
Q5: How important is being kind to yourself as an entrepreneur?
A5: Being kind to yourself is essential. Harsh self-criticism only leads to exhaustion and burnout. Treat yourself with compassion, recognize the validity of your fears, and reassure yourself that mistakes are part of the learning process. This approach fosters resilience and long-term success.
