Timestamps and Takeaways

02:15 Not knowing what we want to do, exploring our curiosity and accepting opportunities over a long period, we can find our passion and purpose.

07:50 How sometimes the jobs we are the most passionate about can have the most significant impact, we're not paying the most money.

08:42 What is a social enterprise and how to turn an existing for-profit business into one, where the proceeds are invested into something good for society.

10:43 Resilience does not mean working too many hours to the detriment to your personal life.

12:09 The more you take care of your own needs first for your mental and physical health, the more it reflects positively on your team, your business, and your family.

14:39 We often forget we have a conscious choice of whether to work more hours than we really need to.

19:18 If you care for your team's results, spending time on too many tasks might not get you where you want to go with regards to more creative solutions and often leads to burnout.

20:41 There is still this badge of honour of smashing too many hours, and even though you might not say, hey, you should do that too,  your team will copy your behaviour and feel under pressure to do the same.

29:59 How can we all be tricked by a feeling of urgency, that feeling when you receive an email and think you have to act straight away, and where does that come from?

31:29 The common mistakes startups make as they grow and build a bigger team are thinking they have to follow what everyone else is doing, which can be dangerous.

34:15 One trap entrepreneurs often take every opportunity that comes their way and suddenly realise it's not their business anymore or it evolved into something they didn't want.

36:45 It really all boils down to who you are, what you want to achieve as a business and why are you doing it?

44:05 Accepting your own vulnerability as a leader, we are humans after all and being ok not to have all the answers.
