Today we're talking about a phenomenon I've seen across the board in entrepreneurship that I think is preventing people from achieving their true potential in both business and in life and that is the need to keep up appearances.
This is stripping entrepreneurs from the possibility of the satisfaction that they're craving, so they keep pushing and trying to achieve things without ever actually feeling that fulfillment. It's used to put up whatever façade necessary to look successful, like you have this amazing life or thriving business. When in reality, you're human, like everybody else, and there are ups and downs to the journey. And with the rise of social media, there's this extra pressure and a stigma that comes with running a front-facing business.
Today, we’re talking about why I took a break from joining a mastermind myself and how to break free of the “smoke and mirrors” culture that is creating a lot of curated squares but very shallow businesses and vapid business owners.
