Episode 006: Time to Uproot? Create Your Success Habitat

Episode 006 Success Habitat

Good seeds can’t grow in bad soil. Sometimes our lack of success comes from being in the wrong environment, where we find ourselves being constantly depleted instead of renewed. In this episode I share strategies to uproot and replant yourself in the kind of “soil” that will allow you to blossom.

In this podcast, Dr. Shante examines three critical elements of a success habitat: circle of influence, fertile soil for growth, and the benefits of changing your scenery.

Episode Action Steps:

  1. Surround yourself with SERIOUS Entrepreneurs
  2. Gravitate towards people that can pour into you and give you the benefit of their expertise
  3. Understand the distinction between support and approval
  4. Replant BEFORE you start to gain momentum; otherwise you may be tethered to things that limit your mobility
