I will be the first to admit — it took me a long time to understand the value and necessity in creating a plan when you want to make stuff happen!
Now I understand, “when you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
In this weeks mind the gap podcast episode I speak about my resistance to planning and how I overcame it.
I also share one of the best pieces of advice I ever received from my mother at age 13 when I started my first business. She said, “Stephanie save at least 10% of what you earn”. I have done that and more.
In a way she was giving me a plan... I realize that now. Following that plan has given me the financial leverage to seize opportunity during the many, many transitions I have experienced.
