Build The Fort, my first book that I released last month uses the story of building a fort with my friends as a 10 year old as a template for starting anything. One of the overarching themes in the book – that I think apply to each and every one of us – is the idea of preparing for this huge decision to take on that scary undertaking. I have used these 3 buckets to test my readiness and you can too. Are you: Financially ready Intellectually ready Emotionally ready. These 3 simple themes are discussed at length with tips and stories that enable you to do your own personal audit. Walking yourself through these themes will reduce the fear that every one of us carry with us and that prevent us from going for it.
