In this episode I break down the difference between systems and processes in detail, with example of what each of these things might include in your business.

What do we do when things don't happen as planned? We pivot. We stay flexible. We correct course. Because you can plan, prepare, try and predict all you want, but when it comes down to it, you’ll never know until you JUST START - and we're never going to get where we want to be unless we keep on going.

Want a single guide that lays out the step-by-step of an entrepreneur's journey? This is it.
Because after trying and failing and trying and failing, I know it's so much easier to have a guide than it is to make things up, or try 10 things before you find the one that works.
This is why I wrote and published my first book, The Fire Path: A Beginner's Guide to Growing Your Online Business: because I've failed at entrepreneurship before, and I have a lot of lessons learned that I know can help others on their own journey.

We love sharing roundup posts that include powerful tips and resources that have been shared right here on EntrepreneurOnFire: the best advice from today's most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs.
Of course, reading an entire book takes time, and so when we do a roundup of 15 of the top business books recommended by today's top entrepreneurs, we know it might be a while before you're able to get through that list.
That's why I'm switching it up today and instead sharing a list of business books that you probably haven't heard of yet and that you can read in 15 minutes or less - plus, I'm going to share 3 of my own favorite business books that I'm absolutely obsessed with right now.

But I don't have experience doing anything, and I'm definitely not an expert...
Believe it or not, I hear this from A LOT of people, and every single time I do, I think back to when I was in Corporate America, saying something quite similar to myself: There's no way I could start my own business - I don't have experience or expertise in doing anything extraordinary - what would my business even "be about"?
In this episode I talk about what finding your experience and expertise actually looks like through sharing a story of how I found out about something I have experience doing (and also how I leverage it to help us grow our business here at EntrepreneurOnFire).

When our team is investing time in something that isn't adding value to the community, then we know it's either time to move on or pivot.
In this episode I talk about a major lesson learned from managing Podcasters' Paradise: Just because your community or members tell you they want something doesn't necessarily mean they are going to leverage and utilize it.
YOU have to be the judge of whether or not a specific project or program is worth the time you or your team are investing in it.
