Our own Elena Valentine was interviewed by Dr. Will Deyamport for the Dr. Will Show podcast and we learned all about Elena’s 15 year old self and her ride through entrepreneurship.
Here are the highlights:
How do you see the work you're doing giving women or people of color the confidence to get over that hurdle and actually apply to jobs that they may not have otherwise applied for?
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur in the first place and what has becoming an entrepreneur taught you about yourself?
How have you personally changed since becoming an entrepreneur and what aspects of the entrepreneur resonate the most with you?
How do you say yes to yourself and not fall into the trap of comparing your today to someone else's tomorrow?
What would say are the biggest misconceptions surrounding someone discovering their life's purpose and living the life they were meant to live?
So how do you stay positive, stay focused, stay in your purpose, stay in the space of helping others around you grow with the demands and the pressures of the financial aspect of the business?
So why do you think people postpone their happiness? And how important is it for people just to take that first step?
Knowing what you know now, what would you tell your 15 year old self?
What advice do you have for those individuals who are, they're just stuck in a routine. I mean, they, they work, they go home, they work, they go home, they work, they go home and it's not a life, a field with, I would say the type of meaning or aspiration or passion that you would hope individuals would want to have in their life. What do you say to them to get them out of that rut and into either a mindset or state of action in which they can have that life that is, that is so inspiring to them that they're just like glowing from who they are?
