Show notes – Episode 002
Welcome to episode 2 of the Angela Harkness Show. The title of which is “What would you do if you won the lottery?”. I have also have written a blog with the same title. In fact, I bang on about it a lot. It all started with a question asked in a boring corporate meeting years ago. I tell the story at the beginning of the podcast.
The premise of this episode is to ask if there is something you would do if you won the lottery, then the question really becomes why are you not doing that now.
The episode focusses on not waiting around for the right time, the right moment and the right amount to come to you before you actually start taking steps towards living your dreams. Whether that is to start your own business, write a book, become a stand-up comedian, continuously travelling the world or moving the whole family to the country and living off jam made from your own fruit trees.
In the show I give examples of many, many people who didn’t wait for time to be perfect, they just got off their arses and go on with it. They didn’t allow excuses to stop them, they didn’t even worry if they were capable of living this life or what it would take they just go on with it.
In these show notes, I give you links to all of the people mentioned and all of the tools I recommend you to use.
Throughout the episode, I give examples of people who have not allowed excuses to get in their way and have gone and created businesses and income streams from a passion and a drive to do something big with their lives.
