Noteworthy Quote From This Episode
“For years, I consumed way too much content. I would research things to death before taking a step. I’ve listened to so many podcasts and watched so many documentaries and read many books. I have a lot of knowledge, but there’s no value being traded if this knowledge stays in my mind and I’m not creating anything to share with the world. You’re never going to feel fully ready to start whatever it is, you want to start. Clarity and motivation comes from taking action, not just staying in the planning and researching phase.”Ashley Cisneros Mejia
