HMBT #106: Challenge Yourself

This episode was recorded in a public place, a Dunking Donuts. The reason being is that I wanted to be able to put myself out there and put myself out of my comfort zone.

This ties into a challenge that a completed for a group I belong to on Facebook for speakers. Throughout the week, I was to do a Facebook Live video on the group’s Facebook Page. There was a different challenge for each day. One of the challenges was to speak for 60 seconds without using the word “I”. Another was to record in a public place, with people watching.

Make sure to challenge your self and think outside the box. Do things that you normally would not do to help your business grow. It could be adding a new product or service offering.

Also, make sure to find someone to talk to about your ideas so that you can learn ahead of time if your idea is solid. I would be happy to connect with you if you need a second set of eyes or ears on something.
