Final Piece Of Wisdom From Kole And Tah
❇️ Kole - “ It all comes down to simplification. I know you want to do all of the things and you think you have to do all of the things for it to be successful, you don't, you need a plan, you need a daily itinerary, you need to build in your meal planning, your meal prep and you need to be able to be present to what's going on in your body because that burnout will tank and not only will it impact either the summit itself or right after you'll end up integrating any money you make back into your health to get back on track. And it's a big deterrent of time and resources. So it's just when you're looking at everything that needs to be done, how can you simplify? How can you be more intentional so that people lean in and it's not only up to you, you know, like what access do you have using software like Mark’s too.
I didn't have any of that. You know, I didn't have any backend support or anything. So it's worth investing in resources and support and on a mental capacity, on a mental standpoint. Just stay in your why. Have a daily mantra to, to remind yourself when you're getting overwhelmed. I've got this. Remind the people that are supporting you, friends, family, that when you're looking a little drained, you know, to remind you you got this. Or take five minutes and go for a walk. You know, having a daily mantra of why it's important to you will help you stay out of overwhelm because that is going to drain not only the drive to complete it, but your physical health.”
❇️ Tah - “You can get more on looking into yourself on our podcast. It's called Mentor in the Mirror. It's really about self-reflection and knowing that you are the greatest mentor that you can ever have. And it's right in the mirror watching you all the time. All you got to do is look and ask.”

I want to end this episode by saying,
"I believe in YOU & YOU can do this."
Summits are by far one of the most powerful ways to quickly grow your list, launch your platform & make more money! (Even if you are just getting started).
Don’t get caught up in Analysis paralysis, because the world needs to hear your message & there are people who are waiting for you to help them.
So just get started. Imperfect action is always better than doing nothing!
