Entrepreneurs: Are You In The Zone?

Most of us live our lives in The Comfort Zone believing the warmth, safety, familiarity and snacks will provide all we need for success and the good life. They don’t. We are more anxious, diseased, bored and unfulfilled then ever before. As Entrepreneurs, we are meant to live in a different zone, one marked by discomfort, challenge, risk yet great reward! Welcome to The Discomfort Zone and a much better life!
