Have you ever felt like a fraud? Do you worry that you’ll never succeed because everyone else has a better education, better connections or more experience?
If you’ve ever felt the dreaded “imposter syndrome,” don’t miss this episode. It contains proof that if you follow your gut and keep your eyes on your own paper, you can build a business that impacts millions.
Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin are co-founders and CEOs of the wildly successful email newsletter, theSkimm.
With over 6.5 million subscribers and investors like 21st Century Fox, you’d think they’d have this whole entrepreneur thing figured out, right?Never build your company on someone else’s algorithm. @theskimm Click To Tweet
In today’s episode you’ll learn how they still deal with BS from haters who ask questions like, “Why do you focus on such a small market like women?”
You’ll hear about the bizarre rejection they got from a potential investor who told them: “Email is dead” — via email! 🙄
Pay special attention to what Carly and Danielle have to say about inexperience. These powerhouse CEOs say that their naivety was the key to their success. It was their ignorance — not their connections, their investors or dumb luck — that helped them unlock an idea that had never been done before.
Just more proof of how important it is to start before you’re ready.
