Is Your Biz Turning You Into a Neanderthal? | Ep. 103

It’s time to find out whether you’ve put the wrong part of your brain in charge of your business!

Running a business can be scary.

And that fear can activate the most primitive part of your brain—the part that thinks like a Neanderthal.

When that happens, you’re about as far as you can get from thinking and acting like an awesome 21st Century Entrepreneur.

Today, we’re going to look at a whole new way to deal with fear.

You’ll see why the very thing you’ve been biologically programmed to avoid is what will set you free to rock your business, and manifest your dreams.

    Perfect, and right on!! It was totally, perfect timing!! I was totally hiding from the fear in me.

  7. Thanks, Bill. I think that’s why many of us procrastinate. I also find I often say “I don’t have the time for this” or “I don’t have the money to try this now” but once again it really can be fear based.
