#135: Maybe You Should Give Up: Interview with Author Byron Morrison


Starting a business can be daunting, but with the proper preparation anything is possible. Business courses and education can be beneficial, but the best way to truly tackle the demands of running a business is to be prepared to lead and manage a team, set priorities, and handle any conflict that arises. In order to reach success it is important to remember to not give up, be proactive, and to know the difference between being busy and being productive. 

To this effect, Byron Morrison’s book “Maybe You Should Give Up: Seven Ways to Get Out of Your Own Way and Take Control of Your Life” offers advice on how to break down tasks into manageable sections, take risks, and act consistently to make progress towards set goals. With effort and a positive outlook, anything is possible.

  1. This hit home on so many levels. I’ve been stuck getting stuck. His input on the stumbling block of fear was the strongest take away, for me. He helped me recognize my fear of actually sharing my content IN PERSON was where I was getting stuck: Continually creating content is so much safer. Another great take away was looking at where I really want to be and especially WHO do I really want to be. GREAT podcast- one of the many great ones!!
