If you listened to this episode (Episode 12), you probably heard the passion and emphasis Ali had in her voice when she said this!
Entrepreneurs see a need and fill it. Ali saw that nobody was making bone broth locally and decided it would fill a niche. That was great, but she was the first person in the state to go through the process of setting up her business that eventually enabled her to sell her bone broth, both locally and nationally. Because it hadn’t been done before and Ali hadn’t run a business, she really encountered numerous roadblocks, but quickly figured out with a positive mindset, that she could overcome any obstacle!
Ali has a growth mindset (verses a fixed mindset) which is so important learning and for pushing forward despite roadblocks or obstacles. Check out the book Mindset by Carol Dweck for more detailed information. Dr. Dweck is a Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and stresses the importance and benefits of having a growth mindset. She also had a TED Talk available.
You, too, can turn your failures into opportunities to learn!
