We’ve been fortunate to connect with so many brilliant, thoughtful entrepreneurs and creatives and we regularly ask them about the most important lessons they’ve learned over the course of their careers. We’ve shared some highlights below.
Shinobu Hindert | CFP® Investing & Wealth Coach
The most important lesson entrepreneurship has taught me is to be strategic in planning but unattached to the outcome. This concept is incredibly challenging to practice but what my business looks like today versus what it looked like at inception is completely different. If I would have attached to a single idea I wouldn’t have presented with the opportunities that I have today and who knows if I would have burned out or even had to fold this business. Being unattached to the outcome doesn’t mean I’m not fully vested in what I’m doing but instead I’m giving myself space to let go of expectation. This has allowed me to change course time and although it’s uncomfortable in the moment the end result has always been rewarding, not just for my business but for me personally. Read more>>

Although what causes our struggles is often different, our human experience with our struggles is so often the same. I’ve been fortunate to see the shared humanity behind the challenges of my clients and this has really helped me to see the shared humanity in everyone. Being able to see and actually feel that connection has enriched my life and my relationships in countless ways. Read more>>
