Having balance when you are an overachiever

  • Oftentimes the EQ skill is the balancing skill to our personality or our natural strengths.

  • You need to have stress tolerance strategies and emotional self awareness to recognize when you're pushing yourself too close to that edge and your self care is not a priority or you're sacrificing

Born vs learned entrepreneurs

  • There are natural personality traits that elevate your capacity as an entrepreneur.

  • There are learned skills that will help you to be better as an entrepreneur

  • If you're missing some of those natural personality traits, it just makes the road a little bit trickier to navigate.

  • Everyone has a different experience

Difference between IQ and EQ

  • IQ is static by the time we're 19 which is our aptitude or capacity for learning.

  • This doesn't mean we can't learn new things, but the depth to which we will learn things has a cap. 

  • Our personality is static between the ages of 5 and 7.

  • Emotional quotient is how we understand our emotional information and then use that effectively.

  • EQ is a skill set we can grow continually and it has no cap.

  • Balanced because a balanced emotional intelligence equals consistency in character.

Tips for a new entrepreneur
